Flashback: Getting a few Laughs as Lawler, Condon & Akin in Attacking 19 Scholars say Ten Commandments aren't Infallible Dogma

I got a few laughs reading the snooty attacks on the 19 scholar heroes by pompous Catholic commentators who apparently don't think the Ten Commandments are infallible Catholic dogma.

Catholic News Agency Ed Condon very seriously wrote the "pope himself... content[s] that Amoris can and should be read in continuity with Catholic teaching."

But, Condon doesn't show us where Communion for those committing adultery is anywhere in previous Catholic teaching so there could be "continuity."

Catholic Culture Phil Lawler nonchalantly says "the claim that the Pope has committed heresy is at best a leap of logic."

But, Lawler doesn't show how it is a "leap of logic" to come to the logical conclusion that teaching Communion for those committing adultery is a heresy.

Finally, coming down from the mountain comes the National Catholic Register's Jimmy Akin who proclaims in "addition to demonstrat[ing] dogmas, the Open Letter also fails to demonstrate that Pope Francis obstinately doubts or denies dogma."

But, Akin doesn't show how Communion for those committing adultery which way back in 2017 was endorsed by Francis's Argentine letter that is called "authentic magisterium" by his Vatican and placed in the Holy See's AAS doesn't "demonstrate obstinately doubts or denies dogma."

It appears that these really smart Catholic guys with their really deep analysis of Catholic moral dogmatic theology don't think the Ten Commandments are infallible dogma.

Thanks for the laughs guys.


I want to thank a good friend who is extremely busy for sending me a list of the typos in the original post of this piece.

This was a fun post. I, also, got to laugh at myself and my blundering with typographical errors.

Always remember that your best friends help you not to make too big of a fool of yourself by pointing out your errors.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

They were written on stone for a reason.
Many of the prominent bloggers defending the Bishop of Rome and saying he isn't heretical - Marshall, Shea, Staples - are former protestants

Always wondered for years about all the celebrity converts and what their real agenda was.

All the apostles didn't have doctorates in ecclesiology and canon law in order to say the teaching being taught out of both sides of the mouth are wrong!

Ridiculous what is going on.

Dear Lord Jesus save your flock from evil wolves.

"Communion for those committing adultery" states the issue too narrowly. Communion-for pro-aborts and Communion-for-sodomites are all the SAME ISSUE. The issue is Communion-for-those-obstinately-persisting-in-manifest-grave-sin.

One of Cardinal Wuerl's many lies is that the minister of Communion must know "the state of the soul" of each communicant before denying Communion.

Wuerl knows this is absolute nonsense, because no one can know anyone's "state of soul," INCLUDING HIS OWN.

Wuerl concocted this lie to give him an excuse for giving pro-abortion politicians Communion: "I didn't know the state of his soul, so I gave him Communion!" You can be sure that Wuerl's infantile lie didn't fool any priest, bishop, or pope.

Every bishop and every pastor has the duty to obey Canon 915, which concerns OUTWARD BEHAVIOR that is publicly known. The duty not to cause grave scandal means that giving Communion in violation of Canon 915 is always grave matter.

No sitting pope in the past fifty years has lifted a finger to stop the scandal of countless scandalous and sacrilegious Communions by adulterers, sodomites, and pro-aborts.

I cannot fathom at all, how any discerning Catholic could look at what this pope has said and done since the very first minute coming out on that loggia, and not come to the same conclusion. You don't need an advanced degree. You don't need extensive training, no doctorate or Mdiv. or any other worldly confirmation of knowledge. You don't need to be a cleric or religious, or have been to Rome or spend each day in contemplation.
You only need a basic sense of Catholic discernment and to remember basic Scripture, most especially "I know my sheep and my sheep know me, the hireling they will not follow" and, "If anyone comes to you preaching a gospel different than this one, even it be an angel of light, do not follow him".
What more do we need to know. Those words alone give great peace. We don't need it pronounced from a Cardinal Burke or any other human being, panel, group, or council. We know it now, today. We are not to follow him, not to listen to him, not to support him.
I am a worrier, I worry about a lot of things, but not this. This is crystal clear. He is a destroyer, and his aim is to destroy the Catholic Church and faith, Christendom, Europe, and now, the US. To us, he is anathema, and the day he is not pope is going to be a very happy day.

I guess St. Paul's admonition fell on Phil's deaf ears among others.

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema."(Galatians 1:8)

Paul teaches laymen to excommunicate from their midst anyone who teaches a gospel different than what was handed down to them. Paul also teaches that the rank of the person promulgating error receive no deference even if it were an angel! It implies that the Galatians were to discern error and take action even though they did not have high ecclesiastic degrees.

Being professional catholics, they probably think their livelihoods depend on it and fear possible career suicide in the novus ordo milieu for declaring that the emperor has no cloths.

Noticing how much Catholics are sounding like Fundamentalists these days.

True Catholics are going by fundamental Catholic teaching.
We pray for Fundamentals to be converted to believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist and the 7 Sacraments and the Tradition of the Catholic Church... the same Catholic Church which gave them the Bible, of which, sadly, they use the smaller, King James Version which is missing some books, since they were removed by some Protestants years ago. We Catholics continue to pray for them, so they will know the truth and be converted.

Well ABS you surprise me: that is an ad hominem attack you just fell into. And altogether beside the point.

Ann Barnhardt the bravest defender of the Bergoglian Antipapacy Thesis is also a convert from Protestantism.

And being a cradle Catholic like Lawler and perhaps Skojec is no guarantee of getting it right either.

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.

- A Hour which will Live in Infamy: 10:01pm November 3, 2020:
What is needed right now to save America from those who would destroy our God given rights is to pray at home or in church and if called to even go to outdoor prayer rallies in every town and city across the United States for God to pour out His grace on our country to save us from those who would use a Reichstag Fire-like incident to destroy our civil liberties. [Is the DC Capitol Incident Comparable to the Nazi Reichstag Fire Incident where the German People Lost their Civil Liberties?: and Epoch Times Show Crossroads on Capitol Incident: "Anitfa 'Agent Provocateurs'":

Pray an Our Father now for the grace to know God's Will and to do it.
Pray an Our Father now for America.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I'm sorry. I wasn't clear. I don't have any contact with other than they posted some articles of mine some time ago. I meant to tell you to go to the article I mentioned and at the bottom of that article is my one of my present email addresses (on aol). Sorry for all the trouble, but I prefer not to generally have my email addresses known.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
