Damian Thompson on Francis's "Explicit" Heresy: "Francis Explicitly Supports Civil Unions... Church Teaching Condemns them"

Today, the Associate Editor of The Spectator, Damian Thompson, admitted on his Twitter page "@holysmoke" that Francis "supports" "explicit" heresy, that is something the "Church teaching['s] condemn":

Your @holysmoke guide to the gay bombshell: 
1. Francis explicitly supports civil unions 
2. Church teaching condemns them 
3. Francis is Pope, so Catholic policy has effectively changed. 
4. The Pope knew this would wreak havoc 
5. He likes wreaking havoc, so he did it. []
Even the generally pro-Francis Crisis Magazine agreed with Thompson: 
That’s a quote from Pope Francis. Pope Francis—the Bishop of Rome, the Vicar of Christ, the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church. And not only has he come out in support of civil unions for same-sex couples: he has also confirmed old rumors that he did so in his native Argentina as early as 2010. For at least a decade, Francis has quietly but actively dissented from Church teaching on human sexuality.

Lest there be any doubt, in 2003 the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith—then led by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, who was appointed by John Paul II—declared:

The Church teaches that respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behavior or to legal recognition of homosexual unions…. Legal recognition of homosexual unions or placing them on the same level as marriage would mean not only the approval of deviant behavior, with the consequence of making it a model in present-day society, but would also obscure basic values which belong to the common inheritance of humanity. The Church cannot fail to defend these values, for the good of men and women and for the good of society itself.

That is indeed the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church. And the Pope is now on the record dissenting from that teaching, publicly and unambiguously. []

Again,Thompson admitted that Francis "supports" "explicit" heresy, that is something the "Church teaching['s] condemn." 
Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt 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)
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

If Benedict's resignation is invalid, which seems extremely likely, then Bergoglio is an antipope and has nothing to be deprived of....and simply opens the door to another antipope. As Ann Barnhart says, we have to get this right. Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the one and only Pope since 2005.

I totally agree that there has to be a Church investigation into the validity of Francis's conclave and Pope Benedict's resignation. However, it has to be the Church in the form of an imperfect council such as happened in the time of St. Bernard in the Middle Ages. If a group of bishops or cardinals were to declare Francis an "explicit heretic" then the obvious next step would be to determine if Francis is an antipope before another conclave were to happen. I totally agree that there is plenty of documented evidence for such an investigation.

There is no question Bergoglio is an heretic on multiple matters.

He is vulgar, ignorant, tyrannical, boorish and thuggish for his age.

In my opinion, he was pope but he has metaphysically lost the office in the meantime.

He is certainly not the pope now.

His profound evil is encapsulated by his refusal to appeal frequently for the lives of the unborn.

In the eight years we have been oppressed this evil little vulgarian, he has never once - not once - mentioned contraception was a sin even though souls are being lost daily for this sin (Onan was struck dead by God in the Book of Genesis for contraception).

Again and again Bergoglio dishes out socialist nonsense and abuses the People of God.

Jorge Bergoglio: an evil, evil man. He has had his reward.

John F. Kennedy said…
Any "Catholic" who is openly in favor of heresy is a heretic. Since 2013 Bergoglio has openly proclaimed many. However many of these heretical beliefs he proclaimed prior to 2013, so he was an public, unrepentant heretic. A heretic can NOT hold an office in the Church, ANY office, Deacon, Priest, Bishop, etc.

If B16 abdicated his office (munus), which I doubt, Bergoglio the Heretic was not eligible to replace him.

Well said JFK.

I believe the whole conundrum of Francis is due to the heresy of Modernism.
It is the dominant thought process and orientation of mankind at this point;
certainly in the West and within The Church. With great effort and study of
documents like Pope PiusX's Pascendi Dominici gregis it is possible to see through
the fog of modernist mind. When you do, people like Francis are unveiled as
deceived, self satisfied and usually marginally Catholic at best. I don't think
the Faith of Christ is really as complicated as we have made it since
around 1960. The Oath against Modernism was an effort to get back to basics, in 1967 the
'cool kids' thought they were above it, and canned it. They have been proven wrong.
It is paradoxical in its simplicity but the solution is as follows; re-institute the Oath as written by Pius 10th, require all priest offer The Latin Mass as codified by Pius 5th ( those who hold tight to the hootenanny may continue with it in addition, until it dies off) , and stand up to and confront the cowards and phonies in our ranks.
Dear St. Joseph smote these fools if it be thy earthly son's will.

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

"I Personally have No Doubt that Obama did in fact Orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict] Coup, a[n]... Obama/Francis Partnership"

Attorney and World Net Daily (WND) contributor Scott Lively believes "that Obama did in fact orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict XVI] coup, and... the Obama/Francis partnership behind the United Nation": Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina became Pope Francis in March of 2013. I published  my first article about Pope Francis and the LGBT agenda  on August 1, 2013 when he was in the news for appearing to legitimize the concept of a “gay” identity as innate and unchangeable.  That concept is the false, anti-biblical premise of so-called “Queer Theory” (their term, not mine), a pseudo-scientific invention of “gay” political strategists, which underlies the entire LGBT political agenda. Francis infamously said in a media interview “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?”.   I actually defended him against the charge that this statement represented an endorsement of homosexual conduct, and gave him the benefit of t
