Novus Ordo Watch Commentary:

It was a given that Francis would make Mr. Gerhard Muller one of his bogus new “cardinals” in the upcoming consistory, since he is the head of what purports to be the Vatican’s Office of Doctrinal Orthodoxy, the so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Muller, an avid fan of Joseph Ratzinger as well as Liberation Theology, denies fundamental Catholic dogmas such as the Perpetual Virginity of the Blessed Virgin MaryTransubstantion of the Eucharistic species, and even the physical Resurrection of Christ. He is, therefore, a most fitting candidate for being a “cardinal” at the Modernist Unholy Office of the False Vatican II Church.

An amusing choice as “cardinal” at this point is certainly that of Loris Capovilla, the man who used to be the secretary of “Pope” John XXIII (1958-1963). Born on October 14, 1915, Capovilla is now 98 years old. Consecrated a bishop in 1967, and presumably (but not necessarily) still in a valid rite of episcopal consecration, Capovilla may be the only prince in the Novus Ordo college of “cardinals” who is still a valid bishop. (Paul VI did not introduce his new, invalid rite until 1968, though who knows what he did shortly before then.)

Without doubt the most colorful pick on the list, however, is the “Archbishop” of Westminster, Vincent Nichols. A brief glance at Nichols’ public record reveals that he is so far removed from Catholicism that the usual “conservative” Novus Ordo pundits will have to ignore the choice altogether, since to defend it would be entirely impossible. Here are some “highlights” of the supposed “Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster,” now a “Cardinal-designate” thanks to Jorge “Who-am-I-to-judge?” Bergoglio, otherwise known as “Pope Francis”:
