Has Chris Ferrara "Succumb to Bergoglio Derangement Syndrome"?

At times, I have found that the comments in the Catholic Monitor comment section are better than my post. This was true of one of yesterday's posts in which Justina wrote this comment:

"I think it is even worse than all that. In Frank Walker's headline at Canon 212, he said Ferrara stated that popes can make mistakes. If that was the full extent of the assertion, it wouldn't be so bad, because of course they can. Only Rex Mottram would deny it."

"But that is not what Ferrara said. In fact, his rhetorical question specified--Who says popes can't make mistakes when teaching about faith and morals?"

"This not only contradicts his own contention that permitting access to the Eucharist for the invalidly remarried is a disciplinary matter alone. It even contradicts Our Lord who, when entrusting the Keys to Peter, specifically linked them to Heaven as well as earth. It is He who guarantees, through the Holy Spirit, that popes cannot commit the errors to which Ferrara alludes. If they could, or if such errors may be downgraded to merely negotiable matters at will, then why be Catholic at all? I'd rather follow my own private judgment than someone else's, if that is all there is."

"If I have understood Ferrara and Marshall correctly, they sought to overcome this objection by citing popes like Honorius who did teach wrong things. The point these commentators fail to factor in is that such teachings were not tolerated by the Church. They were corrected, which apparently is exactly what Christopher Ferrara has now shown himself unwilling to insist upon."

"God is not mocked. It must be one way or the other. Either Bergoglio was never the Pope in the first place or, as Pope, he has deviated so severely from the Faith that Cardinal Burke's long-awaited Formal Correction must come to pass at last. For us all to succumb to Bergoglio Derangement Syndrome like poor Counselor Ferrara, voluntarily warping our view of reality itself rather than dealing with the possibility that we have an anti-pope on our hands, is no solution at all."

Finally, here is my post that hopefully helped inspire Justina in her comment:

Why is Ferrara saying Communion for Adulterers isn't "Doctrine, but a Disciplinary Permission" & Running away from Fr. Gruner's Teachings
On Dr. Taylor Marshall's YouTube channel Catholic lawyer Christopher Ferrera said that Francis's teaching that adulterers may receive Communion is "not really a doctrine, but a disciplinary permission."
(Dr. Taylor Marshall YouTube channel, "Is Pope Francis Against Fatima? with Christopher Ferrara, 42:57)

So it appears that according to Ferrera if Pope Paul VI instead of teaching contraception and abortion can never be permitted had taught that contraception and abortion can be permitted that would not be a heretical doctrine or teaching, but only a "disciplinary permission."

So it appears that according to Ferrara if Francis were to teach that pagan Pachamama idol worshipping in all Catholic churches is now permitted that would not be a heretical doctrine or teaching, but only a "disciplinary permission."

Moreover, in the YouTube show Ferrera said he "learned more about" theology from Fr. Nicholas Gruner than if he had went to a advance theological educational program.

But, as Ferrara knows Fr. Gruner agreed with canon law expert Br. Alexis Bugnolo on Pope Benedict XVI's resignation:

"Canon 17 requires that canon 332 S2 be read in accord with the meaning of canon 145 S1 and canon 41... [which] requires that ministerium and munus be understood as referring to two different things."
(From Rome, "Ganswein, Brandmuller & Burke: Please read Canon 17, February 14, 2019)

Why is Ferrara afraid to respond and running away from his great theological teacher Fr. Gruner's and Br. Bugnolo's reasonable canon law arguments about the apparent invalidity of Pope Benedict's resignation?

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I would publically like to challenge Dr. Marshall to have a "Benedict is Pope" guest on his show.

Anyone else tired of the very Protestant "Recognize and Resist" crowd who won't engage? I know I am. THEY are helping Satan and Bergoglio destroy the papacy!

@Debbie: This is an excellent idea! Have you laid this challenge at either Dr. Marshall's or Timothy Gordon's youtube channels?
Either in their live chats or in the comment sections? Dr. Marshall replied ONCE to one of my comments only to insist that Munus and Ministerium have the same meaning. In light of Mr. Ferrara's recent recognition of Fr. Gruner's role in his own life, perhaps we could 'seed' the comments under his recent interview with Fr. Gruner's unburied video observations from Nov 2014?

I rarely listen to Dr. Marshall's YouTube videos, even before Tim Gordon left, and I've never listened to Gordon's. I'm blocked on Marshall's twitter, but I've asked several times on threads he's part of. On the rare occasion I listen to Marshall I always ask him to explain if he committed the grave sin of schism for assisting at Fr. Nix's private Mass this past August. Marshall made public his attendance at this Mass. Father commemorates Benedict. Marshall owes the public an explanation.
I'm wondering how you "Benedict-is-Pope" folks respond to the charge that you're rushing to plunge headlong over the cliff into the abyss of permanent sedevacantism?
If you're right, you'll have no hope of getting a new, valid pope after Benedict dies. For if Francis has never been a true pope, none of the cardinals he has appointed (now more than half the College) are true cardinal electors. So whoever gets elected at the inevitable conclave following Francis' death will not, in your view, be a true and valid pope. Moreover, if you're right, the Church is ALREADY in jurisdictional chaos, with hundreds of dioceses left without true shepherds. For on your terms none of the bishops appointed by Bergoglio (e.g., three of the four diocesan bishops here in Missouri) has any right to rule his diocese and expect obedience from the faithful living there.

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.
