Is Timothy Gordon a better Scholar than Anti-Constitution Ryan Grant who writes for 1P5?

On December 27, 2019, in Twitter, author of "Catholic Republic" Timothy Gordon said:

"Jefferson and Madison read Bellarmine."

On the same day, on the same Twitter thread Ryan Grant responded to Gordon:

"There is no evidence that either Madison or Jefferson read Bellarmine directly."

Italilo-Americano confirmed Gordon's scholarship that Jefferson read Bellarmine:

"In the Library of Congress may be found Thomas Jefferson's personal copy of Patriarcha, full of annotations on the democratic principles of Robert Bellarmine."
(, "The Spiritual Father of the Declaration of Independence [St. Robert Bellarmine]," July 8, 2013)

Taylor Marshall YouTube show guest and One Peter Five writer Grant believes that the U.S. Constitution should be "eviscerated" or gutted:

"Ferrara does not argue that the entire constitution must be eviscerated (although I do personally, but that is neither here nor there)."
(Distributist online, "Liberty the God that Failed Part 1, in comment section, By Ryan Grant)

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

These Young Turk, cigar smoking, chest thumping wannabe homiez of Christendom don’t have a syllable of thought interesting to me.

Sir Skojec, knight of the valley of the sun, blowing smoke in my face on his dark room, massive stogied YouTube hero shot sums it up for these bad boys.

More like Beavis and Bhead. ”Heh Heh Heh! Nice cigar, man. Heh, heh, heh. I prefer the Bolivar. Heh heh heh. Partagás. Heh heh heh. And Koval Bourbon 12 year to wash it down. Heh. Nice! Heh

Perfect fellows for times like these.

I prefer St. John Chrysostom myself. For the return of Tradition, less cigars and whisky, and more ascetic locust eating Saints confronting Empress Eudoxias to their face!

Well said, Aqua! I just don't understand the cigar smoking selfie videos. Is it some kind of machismo? You described it accurately, perhaps, as "chest thumping." Again, thank you for the thoughtful comments.

Marinaio: Thank you.

I pray this crisis in the Catholic Church (decades in the making, centuries perhaps) will produce a burning purifying fire to cleanse the Body to care only for all things Holy, bound by love for Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.

Dissension, division, anger and grudges will fade away when we become less, and He becomes more.

I couldn’t get the portrait of St. John Chrysostom confronting the Empress Eudoxias to copy (link only) but I imagine he was “chest thumping” himself (perhaps) in his Royal confrontation ... but of a completely different type: anguish, sorrow, zeal on behalf of the holiness of God amid gross transgression driven by his advocacy of asceticism amidst growing debauchery.

In short - zeal (chest thumping) on behalf of God and God’s commandments, and not his own person, honor, public image and financial business model.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
