POSSE PRIEST FR. GERRY MURRAY BLASTS CANON212 FOR ‘VITUPERATIVITY!’ HOW
COULD HE SAY, “THUGCARDINAL!?” THAT’S DISRESPECCCTTTTFULLL!|
Father [Gerry Murray] objects to Frank Walker/Canon 212 calling modernist and tyrannical cardinals and popes “thug cardinals” and “thug popes.” While doing the Pints with Aquinas podcast, a part of the Professional Catholic Inc online world. Here us why he is wrong.
Francis IS a “thug pope,” and many cardinals like him ARE “thug cardinals.” That is a fact. You call them out to protect the Mystical Body of Christ, when matters get grave.
No pope or bishop has the authority to force modernism down the throats of priests, religious, men, women, and children just wanting to be Catholic. Doing that in your role as a pope or bishop does not represent the papacy or episcopate as founded by Christ. So it is fitting and effective to state that fact through the use of a name, when the purpose is to call out their gravely scandalous behavior which does not represent the divine office they hold. But instead tears down what is holy.
You know darn well Bergoglio and his ecclesial mafia are doing just that. Tearing down what is holy...
... And you know very well McCarrick for example was a “thug cardinal” and a criminal, sodomite pederast now facing prison. And that calling him such is perfectly reasonable.
How C212 writes its editorial headlines is just that, how it writes its editorial headlines. Take it or leave it. It’s de facto the main traditional Catholic (TLM-devoted) news source, whether you like it or not. But it deliberately uses sarcasm and irony, as Saints have done, as one of its methods in exposing the Rot that is the modernist establishment in the Church.
Murray, you should clarify your outright condemnations of Frank Walker
and his C212 website, otherwise you’re just participating in the
circular Catholic firing squad that is common in the “Catholic Internet
world,” which would be no better than what you are trying to object to.

Our sarcastic SaviorWhen someone tells me that irreverence, satire and sarcasm strikes a tone that isn’t Christ-like, I wonder what Bible they’re reading. Jesus fought against an entrenched power structure and often did so with cutting satire...
.... First of all, I love that Jesus calls Herod “that fox.” Today we would call someone a fox because we considered them clever. That’s not how Jesus meant it. Foxes were solitary, destructive and unclean. Herod ruled over the Jews and feigned solidarity with them, but he was a dangerous, poisonous man who was only looking after himself. Our Lord was not speaking kindly.
This seems like a good moment to talk about tone. When Christians speak out about other Christians or authority figures, they’re often chastised. It’s as if politeness is the highest Christian virtue. Here we see Jesus summing up Herod’s character with an epithet, and if you read Paul’s letters, He’s frequently calling out people and groups (read Galatians 5, for Pete’s sake).

It appeared to me that an old comment by Dad29 was almost a perfect response to the complaining of Fr. Gerry Murray:
The only change I would make is to use a word related to snarky from Merriam- Webster's website which is passionate. Fatherly passion is what is most needed in our effeminate un-fatherly Francis Church.
A true physical or spiritual father when his children are abused or being lead on a destructive path will defend his children from the abusers or promoters of evil paths that will lead them to hell.
If he only cries because the children have been abused as Francis did with the Chilean sex abuse victims, but doesn't defend them from the priest sex abusers and the bishops who protect them then he is not acting like a man.
Francis showed he is effeminate by not having a manly and fatherly heart that is outraged by the evil of his spiritual children being sexually abused.
Francis is not behaving like Jesus Christ who declared:
"It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones."
Former federal investigator Leon J. Podles, Ph.D., thinks that the bishops don't behave like Jesus or even like men.
Being amazed at how bishops in the Church are effeminate, Podles wrote:
"Gilbert Kilman, a child psychiatrist, commented, 'What amazes me is the lack of outrage the church feels when its good work is being harmed. So, if there is anything the church needs to know, it needs to know how to be outraged.'"
"Mark Serrano confronted Bishop Frank Rodimer, asking why he had let his priest-friend Peter Osinski sleep with boys at Rodimer’s beach house while Rodimer was in the next bedroom: 'Where is your moral indignation?'”
"Rodimer’s answer was, 'Then I don’t get it. What do you want?' What Serrano wanted Rodimer to do was to behave like a man with a heart, a heart that is outraged by evil. But Rodimer couldn’t; his inability to feel outrage was a quality that had helped make him a bishop. He would never get into fights, never rock the boat, never 'divide' but only 'unify.'” [http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=22-06-012-v]
Podles thinks the effeminate church began before Francis with John Paul II who showed sorrow like Francis, but never behaved like a man with a heart that was outraged at the evil. He failed to remove sex abusing high ranking clerics like Fr. Marcial Maciel:
"He [John Paul] publicly apologized for the errors of remote predecessors, but would not apologize for his own errors and the errors of the bishops he had appointed, errors in governing the Church that allowed the abuse to go on." [https://www.google.com/amp/s/billcork.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/review-of-leon-podles-sacrilege-sexual-abuse-in-the-catholic-church/amp/#ampshare=https://billcork.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/review-of-leon-podles-sacrilege-sexual-abuse-in-the-catholic-church/]
Benedict XVI was the last pope to act like a man. He confronted the sex abusers and the bishops who protected them.
He had a heart of a man and true spiritual father when he showed outrage and called them "filth." He removed the sex abuser Fr. Maciel and set up a system to remove predator priests and the bishops who protect them.
Podles shows this is how a true Catholic man and follower of Jesus Christ acts:
"Aquinas, too, says that 'lack of the passion of anger is also a vice' because a man who truly and forcefully rejects evil will be angry at it. The lack of anger makes the movement of the will against evil 'lacking or weak.' He quotes John Chrysostom: 'He who is not angry, whereas he has cause to be, sins. For unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices, it fosters negligence, and incites not only the wicked but the good to do wrong.'” [http://www.touchstonemag.com/archives/article.php?id=22-06-012-v]
Unfortunately, Benedict's fatherly defense of abuse victims was "dismantled" as journalist Hilary White, on January 25, 2017 reported.
Francis "has all but completely dismantled" the "effective" reforms instituted against clerical sex abuse by Benedict:
"Benedict installed effective procedural reforms on clerical sex abuse; Francis... has all but completely dismantled or reversed those changes... Benedict 'had defrocked or suspended more than 800 priests for past sexual abuse between 2009 and 2012'... His reforms specifically included bishops who refused to act against priest-abusers... 'This Pope has removed two to three bishops per month'... These reforms - and - removals - have ceased entirely under Francis."
(Remnant, "Pope Francis Accused of Inaction in Notorious Sex Abuse Cases, January 25, 2017)
Francis has acted even more effeminate than the effeminate Cardinal Bernard Law who is the media face of bishops who protect predator priests. Here is a list:
- Francis accused the victims of calumny. Law did not.
- Francis said he had not received any evidence about the sex abuse case when a member of his inner circle of nine Cardinals and chief adviser on sex abuse personally deliver a letter of evidence to him. Law never did anything close to this.
- A credible victim alleged that the bishop, Francis had defended, not only covered-up, but kissed the predator priest and watched the sex abuse which in effect is a form of sex abuse. Law never defended any priest who did such things.
- Imagine the outcry that John Paul II would have had if he defended Cardinal Law if a credible victim had alleged that Law had not only covered-up, but kissed the predator priest and watched the sex abuse which in effect is a form of sex abuse.
- Imagine the outraged that John Paul II would have had if his perfect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith who was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was Francis's CDF perfect Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer who was protected by Francis's Vatican from going to trial back on April 4, 2017 in France for "complicity in alleged cover-up" of paedophile priest Fr. Bernard Preynat. (Business Standard, "French cardinal, Vatican official to stand trial for paedophile cover-up," September 19, 2017)
- Over "1300 Catholics in Osorno [the diocese where Francis appointed Barros to be bishop], along with 30 diocesan priests, and 120 members of the Chilean Parliament sent a letter to Francis urging him to rescind the appointment of Bishop Barros."((Remnant, "Vatican Watch... So Much for Pope's Child Protection Commission," July 12, 2016). Francis called the Barros protesters "dumb." Law never did anything close to this.
- Francis overturned the Benedict XVI appointed CDF sex abuse ruling to bar Juan Barros from the office of bishop and then appointed him bishop of Osorno. Law never did anything close to this.
- Francis "has all but completely dismantled" the "effective" reforms instituted against clerical sex abuse by Benedict. Law never did anything close to this.
How does the nice Fr. Murray respond to these evils which don't even include the Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò accusations, Lettergate, the Chinese Vatican betrayal deal, the Bergoglio Argentine sex-abuse cover-ups dating to when he was a archbishop to the present Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta case and I could keep going?
He calls Walker snarky for pointing out these are evils.
It reminded me of when the nice Fr. Z whined about faithful Catholics.
Apparently, Fr. Z thinks the best way to end the greatest crisis in the history of the Church is to be nice.
According to him, it appeared back then, that it was nice to call for less money to be given to McCarrick's pro-gay bishops network who cover-up sex abuse, but apparently he didn't think it was nice to call for their removal from the episcopate and to be laicized.
Fr. Z even thought it might be nice for Francis, which the Catholic Monitor and others have presented evidence which show that he has been involved in cover-up, to appoint a canonical Special Prosecutor who would be under Francis's influence.
He probably doesn't think it's nice for McCarrick's pro-gay bishop network to be legally prosecuted as apparently might happen in Pennsylvania and for bishops to be jailed for sex abuse cover-up and other crimes.
Scholar Fr. Chad Rippinger, P.hD., in "Introduction to the Science of Mental Health" explains what charity to our enemies or sinners means:
"[C]harity is not divorced from supernatural prudence, not only for our sake but also for the sake of our enemies or sinners. At times, the most charitable thing that can happen to a sinner is to be cut off from certain effects or manifestations of charity so that he may come to his senses about his sinful life. Extending certain effects of charity may confirm him in his sin, and thereby do him harm."
"From this we understand that charity is not merely being nice, rather niceness is the effect of charity which is extended to people based on prudential judgment. This avoids a spirit of falsity which we find in certain people who are always nice, even when their niceness is out of place, unsuitable or even false." (Page 379)
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
"It occurs to me that if C212's [Frank Walker] headlines are that dispiriting one should stop reading it rather than whining about it. I don't agree with Frank's take on everything either, but he finds a lot of interesting stuff."
