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 [

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."

- "If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?":

- "Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?":

 -  LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:

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.

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?

"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.

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? 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 |   [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
