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. [https://twitter.com/holysmoke]
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
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. [https://www.crisismagazine.com/2020/where-francis-leads-we-cant-follow]Again,Thompson admitted that Francis "supports" "explicit" heresy, that is something the "Church teaching['s] condemn."
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.
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.
If B16 abdicated his office (munus), which I doubt, Bergoglio the Heretic was not eligible to replace him.
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.
