Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"
Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell.
None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope.
If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation, anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die.
Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more clicks, we drove people away from the Church by planting serious doubts in their minds — that we became the stumbling block for them in never receiving the Body and Blood of Lord Jesus Christ?
Catholics who believe the Faith can also end up in Hell. - Church Militant's Michael Voris [https://www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/vortex-grave-papal-sin]
