Why can't Bishop Schneider Issue a Formal Correction of Francis's False Teaching ?

Today, LifeSiteNews reported that Bishop Athanasius Schneider is "call[ing] [the] faithful to pray for Pope Francis to ‘convert’" apparently to the Catholic faith:

"[We] cry to God that, through the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who in Fatima said that people should stop  offending God, who is already too offended, Pope Francis may convert and retract formally his approval for the civil same-sex unions." [https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/bishop-schneider-calls-faithful-to-pray-for-pope-francis-to-convert]

The Catholic Monitor thanks Bishop Schneider for going farther than almost all bishops except for Bishop Rene Gracida in calling for a retraction from Francis. But, why can't he issue a Formal Correction of Francis's false teaching?

The Medieval Pope John XXII tentatively taught a heresy on a relatively minor point on when people received the beatific vision.

The French King Philippe de Valois not being a timid rabbit wasn't afraid to issue a correction against heresy with a warning:

"Philippe de Valois... threatened  John XXII with burning at the stake, as a heretic."
(On History: Introduction to the History (1831),  By Jules Michelet, Page 126)

If King de Valois were alive today would he with a correction have "threatened" Francis for his  false teaching with "burning at the stake, as a heretic"?

Why can't Bishop Schneider follow the French king's example by issuing a Formal Correction to Francis for his false teaching without the "burning at the stake, as a heretic" part?

Why is the once talked about Formal Correction of Francis by Cardinal Raymond Burke and the faithful Catholic media now unmentionable?

Why is even discussing the possibility of an imperfect council and/or a cardinal and bishop investigation into the Francis conclave and Pope Benedict XVI resignation now unmentionable?

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 the Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"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

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

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
