Genuine Misquote or Damage Control Effort?

Dean Pinto of Roman Rota says he did Not issue Threat to Four “Cardinals”

Pio Vito Pinto

 

An interesting development has occurred, and it’s one that will probably make you chuckle.

On Nov. 29, the Spanish web site Religion Confidencial published a report according to which the dean of the Novus Ordo Sect’s Roman Rota — the Vatican’s highest appeals court — had issued a threat against the four “dubia cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra, basically for challenging Francis in public to either fish or cut bait, as it were, regarding “Holy Communion” for adulterers and other more basic moral issues in the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

CDF Head “Cardinal” Müller on the Dubia: “Cannot get involved in the Dispute”

muller-francis_med-2

In an interview published on Dec. 1, 2016, by the German Dom Radio, the head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, has weighed in on the ongoing controversy over Amoris Laetitia, specifically the five “doubts” (dubia) submitted by “Cardinals” Burke, Caffarra, Brandmuller, and Meisner.

Due to time constraints we are not able to translate the entire interview, but we will give you the most important parts:

[Müller:]

This letter [of the dubia submitted by the four “cardinals”] was addressed to the Pope himself and contained questions regarding the correct interpretation of Amoris Laetitia.

[UPDATE: “Mgr.” Pinto says he was misquoted, Religion Confidencial issues retraction]

We all know that Francis is the champion of dialogue and encounter, but when “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra recently did nothing more than ask five very specific questions on a very important theological matter they wanted clarification on, the ever-so-humble Argentinian bridge builder decided to put up a wall: In a defeaning silence, he simply refused to answer.

After nearly two months of receiving no reply, the Novus Ordo cardinals decided to make their questions public.

“Boiling with Rage”: Francis Reacts to Formal Request for Clarification on Amoris Laetitia

francis-warns2

 

The neverending drama about Amoris Laetitia continues.

The formal request submitted by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Meisner, Burke, and Brandmuller for clarification of five specific points in the infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia (the so-called dubia, or “doubts”), was released to the public this past Monday, since for almost two months the “Sovereign Pontiff” had refused to give them the courtesy of a response. “Cardinal” Burke added more fuel to the fire by saying in a follow-up interview that the next step would be to confront Francis with a “formal act of correction” should he persist in his errors.

Vatican Theologians reportedly studying what to do about a Heretical Pope

silveira-heretical-pope-thesis

 

The fireworks just keep on coming. As the reliable Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi reports today, a 1975 theological study by the learned Brazilian layman Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira is currently making the rounds in the Vatican, and it’s not just any study: It’s a study on whether it is possible for a Pope to be or become a heretic, and if so, what consequences would follow from this.

What might possibly have given occasion for Vatican theologians to occupy themselves with such abstruse thoughts?

“Cardinal” Burke threatens Francis with “Formal Act of Correction” if he won’t retract the Errors in Amoris Laetitia

cardinal-burke-concerned
When on Monday, Nov. 14, the Italian journalist Sandro Magister published the five dubia submitted to Francis by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Burke, Brandmuller, and Meisner in September, requesting a “clarification” on various controverted points found in the Bergoglian exhortation Amoris Laetitia, it was certain that “clarification” was just a smoother-sounding code word for “retraction”. There is, after all, nothing left to clarify: The exhortation is a most dangerous document subversive of the very foundations of Catholic morality that brazenly attacks the indissolubility of the marriage bond; and Francis has already confirmed, sometimes more, sometimes less openly, that any ambiguous passages are to be understood in their heretical sense.

Amoris Laetitia Revolution:
Pro-Francis “Secret Police” dispatched to ensure last remaining Vestiges of Catholic Morals will be Overturned

francis-secret-police

Boy, things are really hitting the fan now over Amoris Laetitia. As the Italian conservative Novus Ordo journalist Sandro Magister revealed on his blog today, there is a pro-Francis “secret police” at work in Rome now, bullying Novus Ordo academics into compliance with Francis’ new-found perverted morality as laid out in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. This is the document that effectively permits unrepentant fornicators and adulterers — and, at least by extension, also practitionors of unnatural vice — to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments.

Four “Cardinals” officially ask “Pope” to Clarify Amoris Laetitia — Francis Refuses to Answer!

[UPDATE 15-NOV-16: Interview with “Cardinal” Burke on Challenge to Francis]

One may say it’s an Ottaviani Intervention for Novus Ordos: “Cardinals” Raymond Burke, Joachim Meisner, Walter Brandmüller, and Carlo Caffarra have taken the formal step of submitting an official set of dubia (“doubts”) to the “Pope”, presenting him with five specific questions pertaining to the disastrous and controversial “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which he released in April of this year. These five clear questions demand five clear answers: yes or no.

“Forbidden Love”: Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart calls for Marriage Rite for Homosexuals

forbidden-love-raabe-video

 

This is where the Novus Ordo Sect is at in Germany: The diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart — the emphasis is clearly on rotten — has posted a video commentary by one of its diocesan “theologians”, one Eckhard Raabe, which provides a brief commentary on the recent story of two Novus Ordo nuns who quit the cloister and “got married” — to each other.

Instead of denouncing the perversion of these two women, who were obviously entirely unfit for the religious life, the diocesan master theologian echoed the two perverts’ call for acceptance of homosexual “love” by the Catholic Church, going so far as even to ask for a liturgical marriage rite for gays and lesbians and a nuptial blessing for them!

Transgenders? Case by Case!
“Welcome, accompany, study, discern, integrate”!

One day after blasphemously declaring that seeking the conversion of non-Catholics is a “great sin against ecumenism”, “Pope” Francis has now weighed in on how to provide pastoral care to people who are not sure whether they are male or female or something else entirely (so-called “transgender” people).

In the much-anticipated in-flight “papal” interview aboard the plane taking him back to Rome from Azerbaijan, where the number of Francis adherents can fit in an elevator, the Argentinian Jesuit was asked by a journalist what he would “say to those who are suffering and feel that their sexual identity does not correspond to their biological one”.

“We accuse Pope Francis”: Semi-Traditionalist Trio publishes Book of Accusation against Jorge Bergoglio

matt-ferrara-vennari-accuse-francis

 

Michael Matt, Christopher Ferrara, and John Vennari have had enough. After three-and-a-half-years of open apostasy by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the semi-traditionalist newspaper trio have decided to upgrade their resistance from merely providing critical commentary and launching petitions, to issuing a Liber Accusationis (“Book of Accusation”) against the man they believe is the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth. The charge in a nutshell: He just ain’t a Catholic. (This is something we actually pointed out from the very beginning, while Matt and Ferrara were still trying to spin Francis into a Catholic, but okay.) This move was triggered by Francis’ recent explicit confirmation that his “apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia must be understood to allow some public adulterers to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments without abandoning their adulterous relations.

Permission for Adulterers to receive “Communion” is Only Authentic Interpretation of Amoris Laetitia

[UDPATE 12-SEP-16: The Vatican has confirmed the authenticity of the leaked documents and their controversial contents. The matter has now been reported by Vatican Radio, by News.va, and by Osservatore Romano.]

[UPDATE 10-SEP-16: InfoCatólica.com has removed the posts referenced below; according to journalist Jeanne Smits, the information was apparently not meant for public consumption. Novus Ordo Watch has saved copies of the originals posted. In addition, a scan of Francis’ letter and the Argentinian document to which he was responding are now available here.]

In a letter dated September 5, 2016 to the delegate of the Buenos Aires pastoral region of Argentina, “Pope” Francis has explicitly confirmed that the only correct reading of Amoris Laetitia is that which permits unrepentant adulterers to receive “Holy Communion” under certain circumstances.

Full Text Leaked: 45 Novus Ordo Scholars Condemn Amoris Laetitia as Heretical

 

The laughing stock that is the Novus Ordo Church is getting more and more absurd by the day. A few weeks ago was the first time we heard about a substantial scholarly critique of “Pope” Francis’ supposed “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, the blasphemous and heretical document in which Francis undermines not only Catholic teaching on sexuality but obliterates the very foundations of Catholic moral theology. (See our memes that illustrate the absurd effects of the teaching contained in Amoris Laetitia.)

The critical study, together with its accompanying June 29 letter addressed to the Dean of the College of “Cardinals”, Angelo Sodano, was signed by 45 theologians and other scholars in the New Church and sent to all 219 “cardinals” around the globe.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, after 50+ years of Vatican II and hordes of semi-traditionalists “resisting” while nevertheless “recognizing” the false hierarchy, this is where we’re at.
