Ferrara's Facade: Why should the problem of Francis's legitimacy be brushed aside with "Ignore him"? If there are indications that a priest is abusing minors, would Chris Ferrara shake his head and shrug, "Ignore him"?

... Ferrara’s advice represents those who take the easy way out - see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Plug your ears, cover your eyes and pretend all is well.

In what way are they profiting from the dogma that Francis is pope? Ignoring the side that is saying “what heresy?” which side leads more to apostasy from Roman Catholicism, the side that that acclaims his heresies, blasphemies and anti Catholic behavior and insists that Bergoglio is not the pope or the side that acclaims the exact same things and insists he is the pope. By hiding the possible third option, people who know the faith are led into choosing either sedevacantism or leaving the Catholic Church in toto.

I wonder how they profit from it because a rational person understands people in their position will be judged more harshly if they are wrong, and the fact that they have no logical answers to some things that they (the traditional Catholic media cult) pontificate on should make them tremble. I once was led to sedevacantism because of the dogma that Francis is definitely pope. Something is preventing their mind from realizing they may be scandalizing more than they are saving souls from hell. Is it money, prestige, power? []

In a recent video with Brian McCall, Chris Ferrara was discussing the problem of Bergoglio's February 2 comments contradicting yet another teaching of the Catholic Faith. Ferrara's advice? "Ignore him." Where in canon law is such an approach advocated, let alone required? Ferrara is too sharp not to know this. Instead of advocating for appropriate ecclesial sanctions to be determined and imposed--up to and not excluding declaring that Bergoglio was never the Pope in the first place or has lost the office--Ferrara invents a CYA dodge of his own and tries to pass it off as orthodox--even Marian--Catholicism.

Could Counselor Ferrara please explain--based on objective criteria rather than his own subjective preferences--why the problem of Bergoglian legitimacy should consciously be brushed aside? If there are indications that a priest is abusing minors, would Chris Ferrara shake his head and shrug, "Ignore him"? If Joe Biden assaults fundamental human and Constitutional liberties, does Chris Ferrara find "Ignore him" to be an adequate response? Yet where the putative Pope is concerned, this ludicrously illogical standard is held to apply.


Could Chris Ferrara, on behalf of all those who wish too stop short of facing the truth not in general but egregiously in this sole regard, kindly explain?

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.

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.

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

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.

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.

Someone should raise funds for Benedict. He told us so many years ago he dressed like a pope because he had nothing else to wear and 9 years since his retirement he still dresses like a pope. That means his wardrobe is empty.

Also, his caretaker is failing to take proper care of him. Instead of gently remind him he’s no longer pope, his caretaker lets him delude himself into acting like a pope, such as signing correspondence with his papal name. This is almost elderly abuse.

We need to raise money for him because the cheapskates around him refuse to help an old man, ex-pope no less.

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk

"I Personally have No Doubt that Obama did in fact Orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict] Coup, a[n]... Obama/Francis Partnership"

Attorney and World Net Daily (WND) contributor Scott Lively believes "that Obama did in fact orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict XVI] coup, and... the Obama/Francis partnership behind the United Nation": Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina became Pope Francis in March of 2013. I published  my first article about Pope Francis and the LGBT agenda  on August 1, 2013 when he was in the news for appearing to legitimize the concept of a “gay” identity as innate and unchangeable.  That concept is the false, anti-biblical premise of so-called “Queer Theory” (their term, not mine), a pseudo-scientific invention of “gay” political strategists, which underlies the entire LGBT political agenda. Francis infamously said in a media interview “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?”.   I actually defended him against the charge that this statement represented an endorsement of homosexual conduct, and gave him the benefit of t
