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.

Our popular TRADCAST program returns with a brand-new episode that focuses on Francis’ outrageous remarks of June 16 that “most marriages are invalid” while at the same time maintaining that people can merit the grace of a “real marriage” by repeated acts of fornication as long as they fornicate exclusively with one another. 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.

“Plea to the Pope”:
VIP Lineup asks Francis to get his Act together

Well, at least it’s a serious effort they’re making, and not just a “click here to sign a petition” ad: “Bishop” Athanasius Schneider, “Fr.” Linus Clovis, and fourteen Novus Ordo life and family leaders from various countries have produced a 30-minute video in which they plead with their “Holy Father” to please stop attacking Catholicism and finally teach sound doctrine. The immediate trigger for this move was the release of Francis’ chaos exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which effectively permits unrepentant public fornicators and adulterers to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion:

The following clip is a four-minute summary, followed by the full-length video:

These clips were published by the pro-life web site Life Site News, which has also released an article to accompany the videos:

While it seems clear that these people are of good will, it must again be pointed out that it is sheer folly to recognize the manifest apostate Jorge Bergoglio as the Pope of the Catholic Church.

Novus Ordo philosopher ups the ante…

Robert Spaemann: “There is a limit to how much the Church can take”

robert-spaemann.jpg

Robert Spaemann is an 89-year-old German philosopher and one of the few outspoken critics of “Pope” Francis. His religious affiliation is what we call “conservative Novus Ordo”, that is, he believes the Modernist Vatican II Sect to be the Catholic Church and Francis her legitimate head while adhering to what’s typically considered to be a conservative interpretation of Vatican II and the post-conciliar magisterium.

In April of this year, he denounced Francis’ “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia and warned about the “danger of schism” while Francis continues to wreck what is left of Catholicism in the Vatican II Church.

On second thought, maybe not… Unfortunately for Mr. Voris and his Church Militant crew, Francis condemns as heretical precisely the kind of Catholic Michael Voris considers himself to be. Ouch! (Tim Haines, he means you too!)

On Thursday, June 9, Francis once again outdid himself in the sermon he gave at the daily “Mass” at Casa Santa Marta, this time on the Gospel of St.

Our apologies to Robert Redford, “The Horse Whisperer”

What do you know… We’ve been saying all along that the ghostwriter of Francis’ latest magisterial disaster — the “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia — is Argentinian “Archbishop” Victor Manuel Fernandez (aka “Smoochie”), but we had no idea how right we were: The Italian Vaticanist Sandro Magister has now uncovered that key passages in the exhortation bear striking resemblance to what Fernandez had written in a theological journal ten years ago.

An Update:
Francis and the Society of St. Pius X

fellay-francis.jpg

The Society of St. Pius X, since 1994 headed by the intrepid Bp. Bernard Fellay, who considers himself the leader of Traditional Catholicism yet without even so much as a single significant theological contribution to back him up, has now released a statement on Jorge Bergoglio’s infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia:

The Society’s reaction is entitled, “Enough to make one weep” — which about sums up all the SSPX has left at this point to put up against Francis’ in-your-face apostasy: tears, sobbing, and hand-wringing.

Francis to “Archbishop” Forte:

“If we speak explicitly of Communion for the Divorced-and-Remarried, we don’t know what a mess will result. So let’s not mention it directly. Make sure the premises are there, and I will draw the conclusions”!

For those who have been denying the obvious about Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia, this latest revelation probably won’t make a difference either, but this won’t keep us from laying the facts on the table:

Just as “Cardinal” Gerhard Muller of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction Doctrine of the Faith went out of his way to argue that Amoris Laetitia does not permit public adulterers to approach the Novus Ordo sacraments, “Archbishop” Bruno Forte, one of the more notorious Modernists in the Italian Novus Ordo hierarchy and author of the infamous mid-term report (Relatio Post Disceptationem) that caused the first wave of chaos after the 2014 Synod, has revealed that Francis told him personally that while he would indeed allow the reception of “Communion” by public adulterers, he wanted to do so only very discreetly — through the back door, so to speak — in order to prevent a “mess”!

Amoris Laetitia and the Coming Schism:
Retrospect and Prospect

Shortly before the Synod on the Family of 2014 — the first of the two mini-councils, whose final result was the toxic exhortation Amoris Laetitia — we put the question before our readers: How long until schism?

After this initial post, we followed up now and again to report on various happenings that indicated that indeed a serious rupture within the Vatican II Sect was beginning to take shape:

On April 8, 2016, the very day the Vatican released Francis’ post-synodal exhortation that has effectively permitted public sinners to approach the Novus Ordo sacraments without requiring conversion first, the reputable German Vaticanist Andreas Englisch warned that a schism with Benedict XVI as Antipope, although he believed it to be unlikely, could not be ruled out:

Earlier in 2014, and even as early as December of 2013, we had already detected the beginnings of a schism in a phenomenon we decided to label “Resignationism”, a position taken by a number of Novus Ordos and Semi-Traditionalists who believe that Benedict XVI’s resignation on February 11, 2013, was made under duress and was therefore, per Novus Ordo Church law, invalid.
