Biden: Pope Says He Should Keep Receiving Communion

Oct 29, 2021 — ROME — President Biden told reporters on Friday that Pope Francis had called him a “good Catholic” and said he should keep receiving ...

As Research Director for the Acton Institute Dr. Samuel Gregg put it:

"The 'seamless garment'... provide[d] 'cover' for Catholic politicians who supported legalized abortion."
(Catholic World Report, "The Consistent - and not so Seamless - Ethic of Life," August 13, 2015)

Scholar Timothy Gordon in his book "Catholic Republic," which makes the case that many of America's founding principles are based on Catholic philosophical teachings, thinks distributism appears to "probably" be moral consequentialism" which attempts "to make right out of wrong." He writes:

"[D]istributist authors admit... 'they were advocating the redistribution of the means of production...'"

"... At it's very best, distributism equals natural economy- capitalism- under a renewed, moral, republican form... At its worst (and most probable), it is the old beast: collectivism."
(Catholic Republic: Why America will Perish without Rome," by Timothy Gordon, Pages 163, 164-167)

Distributists tend to be Francis Seamless Garment liberal Catholics in sheep's clothing who claim to be anti-abortion, but often support abortion candidates.

They claim to be traditionalists and conservatives, but are actually liberals who equate redistributistic economic issues with the genocide of abortion thus many of them such as distributist Dale Ahlquist's collaborator Mark Shea promote abortionist political agendas and are Never Trumpers."

Distributist Shea once called Trump supporters Ever Trumpers. Does that mean that distributist Francis Catholics can be called Ever Franciser?

Mary Ann Kreitzer says that  G. K. Chesterton would contradict the Ahlquist/Francis Communion for adulterers dogma because of their "flawed reasoning... [in] Amoris Laetitia that justifies the return to Communion of those living in adultery":

I'm a great fan of G.K. Chesterton and the American Chesterton Society. Let me amend that statement. I am a great fan of Chesteron and was a great fan of the Society. Dale Ahlquist, its founder, has done a splendid job bringing Chesterton to a modern culture that knew little about him. If Chesterton isn't yet a household word, there are many in the last two decades who have come to know him through Dale's work and programming on EWTN. I congratulate him for that.

Unfortunately there's a "but." The first problem for me was the Society jumping on the hate-Trump bandwagon. Up to that time I belonged to the Society, had attended several of their annual conferences, and subscribed to Gilbert, the Society's magazine. I did not renew my subscription, however, after the Society's taking sides that would have, if successful, guaranteed Hillary Clinton's election. After several anti-Trump articles, the final straw was a suggestion from one of their main writers to enter Chesterton's name on the ballot as a write-in. What insanity! So I did not renew my subscription and have no plans to attend another conference.

But what finally made me lose confidence altogether was Dale Ahlquist's support for Amoris Laetitia and his comments made on a panel for the AOTM (Argument of the Month) town hall essentially calling Church teaching "crazy" and arguing for an "exception" using a friend's marital situation as an example. You can watch it below. If you only want to hear Dale's comments go to minute 23 on the tape.

From a legal perspective, exceptions make bad law. A law is either a law or it isn't...

...I don't think for a minute Chesterton would agree with Dale Ahlquist's reasoning at all. He loved faith and family too much and was always prophetically aware of the misdirection the world was taking. He would recognize the great thing it is to sacrifice a good for something even better.

May the apostle of common sense pray for us living in this world of insanity! And I'll close with a quote of Chesterton's that has always been among my favorites.

“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”?

I think that is what Chesterton would have said in reply to the flawed reasoning based on Amoris Laetitia that justifies the return to Communion of those living in adultery.  []

Also, is Ahlquist's beloved Francis in “flat contradiction” of Pope Leo XIII’s Catholic Social Teaching?

Even apologist for the Amoris Laetitia's Communion for adulterers teaching, Phil Lawyer, admits that Francis's teaching is "a 'flat contradiction' of Leo’s teaching" on private property:

Phil Lawler, a longtime Catholic journalist and news director for, writes that the Pope’s statement that the right to private property has never been held inviolable in Christian tradition is a “flat contradiction” of Leo’s teaching on.

“Throughout Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis shows a clear hostility toward private property, the market economy, and capitalism,” wrote Lawler, who says the Holy Father also neglects to stress the significance of strong families and a healthy society as a key corrective of excessive market tendencies, a hallmark of previous papal social teaching. []

Scholar Daniel Mahoney explains the problems with Francis's social teachings which opposes the real Catholic Social Teachings:

In the summer of 2015, The Economist called Pope Francis a “Peronist,” correcting those who see in his social reflection a softness toward Marxism, although this is sometimes apparent in his utterances, too.

The characterization is apt. But as one observer has noted, Peronist populism created a “rancid political culture in Argentina,” one that emphasized class struggle and redistribution above lawful wealth creation. Argentina went from being the 14th richest country in the world in 1900 to the 63rd today. Sadly, one sees some evidence that Pope Francis is rather indulgent toward despotic regimes that speak in the name of the poor—his recent silence about the persecution of mainly Catholic dissidents in Cuba was deafening (the Cuban-born Catholic scholar Carlos Eire of Yale even wrote on the First Things website about a “preferential option for the oppressors”), and he was remarkably affable both with Cuba’s late tyrant emeritus, Fidel Castro, and with the ever more dictatorial Evo Morales in Bolivia. During the welcoming ceremony at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana on September 19, 2015, Pope Francis spoke of his “sentiments of particular respect” for Fidel Castro, a totalitarian tyrant who subjugated the people of Cuba for 50 years and viciously persecuted the Church. Perhaps the Holy Father needs to read Armando Valladares’s 1982 book Against All Hope, a searing account of life in Castro’s gulags and political prisons. All of this is disappointing, to say the least. The poor need political liberty, too, and the opportunities that come with private property and lawfully regulated markets. Even more disturbing is the claim by an acolyte of the pope, Bishop Marcelo Sanchez of the Pontifical Academy of the Social Sciences, that “China is the best implementer of Catholic social doctrine” today (Catholic Herald, February 6, 2018). This blindness toward totalitarianism and indulgence toward regimes that actively persecute faithful Catholics are hallmarks of Francis’s papacy. It is striking that Pope Francis rarely reiterates the Church’s defense of private property, a central concern of Catholic social teaching going back to Pope Leo XIII (read the very forceful defense of private property—and trade unions—in Rerum Novarum [Of New Things], as well as that encyclical’s absolute condemnation of socialism). I will put the matter bluntly: A faithful Catholic is not obliged to be a Peronist. []

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?”:

– If Francis betrays Benedict XVI & the”Roman Rite Communities” like he betrayed the Chinese Catholics we must respond like St. Athanasius, the Saintly English Bishop Robert Grosseteste & “Eminent Canonists and Theologians” by “Resist[ing]” him: 

 –  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.

Bergoglio's connection to Judas Iscariot makes sense. And the Argentine has always shown sympathy for him. Because both show concern for the most needy, the poorest. But the Gospel says this is pretense because the apostle who betrayed Jesus is a thief. So he sinned against the seventh commandment. Jesus says that we are to love God above all else and our neighbor as ourselves. Thus we can keep all the commandments; Abortion, however, is a non-fulfillment of the fifth commandment. And Bergoglio, in the example of Judas, betrays Our Lord. He doesn't have any love for God and neighbor. So he removed the one who legally held Peter's office. And so he usurps something that is not his. And it blocks gospel truth. Because the lie is the truth, the truth is the lie. Today it's all very hazy. He can steal the faith of the one without logical discernment.
