“I can’t believe it’s not Catholic!”

Vatican Radio:
“Homosexuality Need Not Be ‘Cured’”

“Pope” Francis may say he doesn’t know who’s part of the notorious Vatican Gay Lobby, but we suspect he can find some of them at the German branch of Vatican Radio, which posted a photo of two young men kissing while waving a rainbow flag, as part of a news story on the heretical “Bishop” Stephan Ackermann on July 17, 2014. The post can be seen here, but, just in case it gets removed, we provide a screenshot here (UPDATE 18-JUL-14 12:22 GMT: Vatican Radio has just replaced the offensive photo with a photo of “Bp.” Ackermann):

The story about “Bishop” Ackermann is bad enough (also see the links beneath this news piece), but it is even worse for Vatican Radio to illustrate it with such an act between two men.

A perplexed Novus Ordo struggles to understand…

The Vatican and the Muslims

This is a very informative video, produced by a decorated veteran and former intelligence analyst for the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff who is also an expert in Islamic law. He looks at “Pope” Francis’ recent “Interfaith Prayer for Peace” event that took place in the Vatican Gardens on Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 2014, at which a Muslim imam prayed in Arabic for “victory over the infidels.”

Evidently a Novus Ordo of good will, retired Maj. Stephen C. Coughlin, Esq., is someone who, unlike many of the Novus Ordo apologists and bloggers out there, is not refusing to use his God-given intellect to analyze what is coming out of the Modernist Vatican.

New Interview published June 29…

Francis Denies/Mocks Sacred Scripture: “Woman was taken from a Rib… I’m kidding, that’s a Joke”

francis-caution.jpg

In less than 2 weeks, “Pope” Francis, too exhausted to attend to all of his scheduled obligations, has cranked out yet another interview, making it the ninth in total since his election on March 13, 2013, according to our reckoning.

The professional blogger/ translator/ traveler/ cook/ businessman/ lecturer/ anything-but-a-real-priest “Father” John Zuhlsdorf has shared his translation of a few lines of text from this interview in which Francis confounds ultra-liberals waiting for “women priests”, and of course, this is something Zuhlsdorf loves to zero in on as it allows him to perpetuate the idea that Francis is somehow a Catholic or a conservative — as though all it took to be a Catholic was to affirm one Catholic thing every once in a while.

The “Operation of Error” in Full Swing…

The Interreligious “Prayer for Peace” from the Vatican Gardens: Jewish, Muslim, “Catholic”

francis-peace-tree.jpg

Francis’ naturalist idea of obtaining peace involves planting an olive tree

“Chaos Frank” has done it again. On Pentecost Sunday 2014, he hosted an interreligious “Invocation for Peace” event at the Vatican Gardens. The main attendees were Patriarch Bartholomew I (Eastern Schismatic), Israeli President Shimon Peres (Jewish), and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Muslim).

Two videos of the event, the first a summary, the other the entire spectacle at full length, are available here:

The Vatican web site has made available the full text of the prayers offered to what is claimed to be the same true God, which of course is a lie.

One big happy family: All the same god, eh?

The professional defenders of the Novus Ordo Sect are going to have a tough time “explaining” this one: On Pentecost Sunday, “Pope” Francis will be conducting a prayer service for peace together with Israeli President Shimon Peres (Jewish) and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Muslim). The Eastern Orthodox (Heterodox, really) Patriarch Bartholomew I will also be in attendance.

The Vatican web site has made available the full text of the prayers to be offered to what is claimed to be the same true God, which of course is a lie.

A “Siri Thesis” for Ratzinger Fans…

Resignationism 2.0:
Enter “Cardinal” Scola

benedict-vs-francis.jpg

Things are topsy-turvy in Novus Ordo Land. Now they even have their very own “Siri Thesis.”

After the initial appearance in late 2013 of the position we have termed “Resignationism” — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid and therefore he is still Pope, and Francis a usurper — there followed a few rounds of additional theorizing by adherents of the thesis, especially after Ratzinger explicitly affirmed to a journalist that his resignation was valid indeed. At the time, we predicted that Benedict’s affirmation would still not put an end to the speculations, and we were proven right when Antonio Socci wrote his follow-up article “The Plot Thickens.” We ended our own commentary on Socci’s take with the words: “Stay tuned, everyone.

Facts and Rumors…

A Third Council of Nicea in 2025?
Do Francis & Bartholomew want a new Ecumenical Council?

Rumors are making the rounds in the blogosphere today as AsiaNews.it released a story according to which the Eastern Schismatic (“Orthodox”) Patriarch Bartholomew I revealed that “Pope” Francis and he “agreed to leave as a legacy to ourselves and our successors a gathering in Nicaea in 2025, to celebrate together, after 17 centuries, the first truly ecumenical synod, where the Creed was first promulgated.”

The full story can be read here:

When you read the text, you can see that it really doesn’t say anything about a new “ecumenical council” to be held in 2025, only that there will be a gathering in Nicea to commemorate the First Council of Nicea of 325 AD.

Hiding Christ from the Jews:
Francis covers Pectoral Cross in Meeting with Chief Rabbis

One of the many stops during Francis’ brief visit to the Holy Land was a meeting with the two Chief Rabbis of Israel. The Vatican posted the text of Francis’ address to the two rabbis here, and also made available this video.

In keeping with his program of refusing to ever actually evangelize the Jews (or any other non-Catholics, for that matter), and of mocking Christ our Lord, the false “Pope” Francis wore his pectoral cross behind his sash, so that it was at various times either covered partially or not visible at all.

365 Days of FRANCIS:
What Was the Worst?

It’s been a full year since March 13, 2013, that fateful day when “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Tauran stepped out on the balcony of St. Peter’s and announced the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as “Pope Francis.” The moment the Argentine apostate appeared, the mayhem began, and we have chronicled the highlights — or lowlights, to be more precise — every step of the way. To review the facts about Rev. Bergoglio, please access our “Pope Francis” Page here; a review of our Novus Ordo Wire blog posts will provide additional insights.

Resignationism Continued…

Now “Abp.” Ganswein Weighs In:
Benedict’s Emeritus Status 
“Corresponds to Reality”

georg-ganswein.jpg

“Archbishop” Georg Ganswein, Secretary to Benedict XVI

Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci is back with more on the neverending drama surrounding what we have termed the Resignationist thesis, the idea that the resignation of Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) was invalid and he is therefore still the legitimate Pope of the Catholic Church, Francis being an impostor. (For those who don’t know, the position of Novus Ordo Watch is that all “Popes” after Pius XII have been impostors. More on that here.)

In his latest contribution, published March 2, 2014 for the Italian El Libero, Socci reveals the “serious answer” Benedict XVI’s private secretary, “Abp.” Georg Gänswein, has given to the question why Benedict sticks with the title “Pope Emeritus” (as opposed to reverting simply to “Cardinal Ratzinger”, as would have been expected) and still retains various papal insignia, such as his papal coat of arms, the continued wearing of the white cassock and zucchetto, etc.

Socci: “The Plot Thickens”

“Greater Mystery” seen in
Ratzinger Response to Tornielli

Just as we predicted yesterday, not all who give credence to the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation may have been invalid are convinced by Ratzinger’s reported reaffirmation of its validity to Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli.

“The plot thickens,” Socci says in a Feb. 26, 2014 article posted on his web site:

Socci claims that the questions he raised earlier this month have not been answered but instead the mystery surrounding Benedict’s abdication is deepening.

Socci, author of the book The Fourth Secret of Fatima, criticizes Andrea Tornielli of the Italian daily La Stampa for not releasing the full text of the alleged letter the “Pope emeritus” wrote him, saying that for a story of such magnitude, it would have been appropriate to at least reproduce the letter in its entirety, or better yet, a scanned facsimile copy showing Ratzinger’s signature and letterhead.

Resignationism, R.I.P.

Benedict XVI Speaks: “My Resignation Was Valid”

benedict-francis-zucchetto.jpg

Bad news for Resignationists — those who believe that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid because brought about by force. While it would allow them a convenient, non-sedevacantist way out of the problems with Francis by saying the true Pope is still Benedict, it is Joseph Ratzinger himself now who has explicitly denied the rumors and confirmed that he gave up his claim to the papacy by his own free will.

Responding to a letter written him by the well-known Italian Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa, the “Pope Emeritus” clearly states:

There is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry.
