Chris Ferrara Called for an "Imperfect Council" & his Mentor called Francis an Antipope & an "Obess[ion]" with Tom Woods?

On September 17, 2018, Remnant writer Chris Ferrara, president of the American Catholic Lawyers Association wrote an article calling for a "imperfect council" to be enjoined to investigate and possibly "declare" Francis "deposed" from the papacy:

Mr. Ferrara, please, be honest and explain why you disagree with the man who mentored you in Catholic theology.

Stop running away from the issue. Go on your new friend Taylor Marshall's show and tell everyone why you disagree with your mentor.

One last question that appears to be off subject, but may explain why he is running away from some of his past apparent and possible positions. 

Why are you so obsessed with your past collaborator and co-author Tom Woods?

Mr. Woods wrote:

Why is he so obsessed with me?  It’s his unquenchable thirst for justice and truth, Ferrara will tell us.  Maybe so.  On the other hand, perhaps it’s a dangerous and transparent indulgence in one of the seven deadly sins.  No one can know for certain but Ferrara himself.

On a personal level, Ferrara is upset that I elected not to set forth a ringing defense of him and of the newspaper he writes for when they came under attack from the thought police several years ago.  Left out of this tale of Woodsian treachery is the fact that this paper had by that point refused to publish me for years and had devoted, by a factor of ten, more column inches to attacks on me than any editor in his right mind would have tolerated.  So I am to be shunned and condemned, but I must come running to testify on their behalf whenever they need me.  That sounds fair.

Over the years I’ve been the subject of occasional attacks by people across the spectrum: leftists, neoconservatives, pretend libertarians, and paleoconservatives.  I can handle it; and indeed I think I have usually gotten the better of my critics.  But worse than any of them, in terms of intellectual laziness, dishonesty, lack of charity, and outright nastiness have been Chris Ferrara and the sliver – and it is only a sliver, thank goodness – of traditional Catholics who follow in his footsteps.

Ferrara can devote the rest of his life to ponderous tomes to be read by an echo chamber that insists on living down to the worst caricatures of traditional Catholicism, and I have no doubt he will.  But I remind him that as Catholics we have an obligation to attend to our own households, and to the souls and well-being of our own children, over and above the pursuit of any self-indulgent avocation.  There can be no excuse for neglecting those things in order to embark on self-important, melodramatic crusades to defend civilization against the perversities of Tom Woods [https://tomwoods.com/on-chris-ferrara/

Francis Notes:

- 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)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

If the Conclave was invalid because a Pope still reigns, then it is not surprising that it was guided by politicking and influence peddling and favors granting - evil and darkness; rather than by the active presence of the Holy Spirit and bountiful Grace - holiness, light and Christian brotherhood.

Calls for an Imperfect Council are damaging because they aim to set into stone the precedent act of invalid resignation, bifurcation and the horrible, unprecedented vile new term “Emeritus Pope” - “retired but still safely and forever within the enclosure of St. Peter”.

We can’t have this. What has been done to the Papacy is worse than anything else that has happened to the Church except for the Pachamama sacrelige.

Call an Imperfect Council to investigate the invalid resignation and set things right at the source of all wrongs - most especially our now deformed Papacy which will forevermore include the hateful new innovation, “Popes Emeritus”.

We will never be right, until this is fixed first. Whatever else we do, this must be investigated, understood, fixed.

The problem you face is that not only is Francis an heretic but so is the entire Novus Ordo hierarchy. They all believe in false religious liberty, false ecumenism, and conscience over objective truth. Francis and all his post conciliar predecessors have taught heresy. Where are you going to find anyone in the Novus Ordo establishment to depose them?

Thing is Mr. Martinez, Mr. Ferrara does believe Benedict is Pope....he just won't state it publicly. Ann Barnhardt says he told her so to her face.

Tom A.

Where indeed are you going to find anyone?

I think you’ve been warning about this for some time. I have come to agree with you. This goes beyond deep, (it seems), to systemic.

Pachamama witch god (and its Wicca sacramental plant) is elevated on the High Altar of St. Peter. TLM is suppressed in St. Peter’s.

Anyone out there? Anyone?

It will be recorded that "under the pretense of COVID, executive branch officials across a number of key battleground states violated election procedures passed by the legislative branches of those states in a number of ways that opened up the process to fraud on a massive scale, never before seen in the history of this country" which makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks before. During the time before and after the attack the Democrat Machine and its corrupt collaborator

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

    "You cannot give Holy Communion to the abortionists, to the abortion promoters and providers, to the divorce and remarried. You cannot do it. St. Paul said you do not feed the Eucharist to dogs..."   "Right now they [the laity] are suffering in silence. They need to object. The laity, the sensus fidelium is that common sense among the laity who have accepted the magisterial teaching of the Church which is the foundation of their faith."     "Having accepted that when they hear something that is contradictory to the magisterial teaching of the Church, the sensus fidelium is a impulse that causes them to speak out and say no."     "That is not true. Don't say that. Stop! That is the sensus fidelium in action!"     "Not to sit and suffer in silence. That's crazy. That's weird. That's wrong. Speak up! Resist!
