St. Jerome Agrees with St. Bellermine against Bp. Schneider & Condemns Francis's Amoris Laetitia

Bishop Athanasius Schneider claims "that a heretical pope can... lose office was alien to the first millennium."

Doctor of the Church St. Robert Bellarmine says:

"The manifest heretical pope ceases per se to be pope... This is the opinion of all the ancient Fathers."
(Mahound Paradise Blog, "Who is Right, Athanasius Schneider or Robert Bellarmine?" October 30, 2019)

Ancient Church Father St. Jerome agrees with Bellermine (that all Catholics who
are manifest heretics be they laymen or popes "exclud[e] themselves from the Church spontaneously") against
Schneider's opinion; and Jerome, also, condemns Francis's Amoris Laetitia:

"Therefore it is said that the heretic has condemned himself; for the fornicator, the adulterer, the murderer and other sinners are expelled from the Church by the priests; but the heretics pronounce sentence against themselves, excluding themselves from the Church spontaneously."
(TFR.org, "The Heretic Excludes Himself from the Church, 'Being Condemned by his own Judgement,'" July 3, 2019)

Of course, this must be done by the Church as Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales says:

"The Pope... when he is explicitly a heretic... the Church must either deprive him or as some say declare him deprived of his Apostlic See."
(The Catholic Controversy by St Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

It's good to cite the fathers, against those who dissent from the Faith on these points, but you can also cite canon 1364 which says the same thing as Bellarmine and Jerome.

I do not know why it is that since 2013 no one wants to cite Canon Law, have we all become anomians?

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps...

The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
