March Madness: Francis to Lunch with 10 Transsexual and 80 other Prison Inmates on Saturday
What do you know… Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is reportedly planning to meet and have lunch with 90 detainees in a prison in Naples on Saturday, March 21, ten of whom will be transsexuals. The following report is taken directly from the so-called National Catholic Reporter:
ROME — Pope Francis is reportedly to have lunch Saturday with ten transsexual persons, as part of a visit with prisoners in the southern Italian city of Naples.
The transsexuals are part of a group of about 90 prisoners the pontiff will eat with and won their spots after a raffle among some 1900 detainees, according to a report posted late Tuesday on the Italian news website Vatican Insider.
That article refers to a separate report made on the matter by Tv2000, an Italian television network operated by the country’s Catholic bishops’ conference and known for broadcasting most papal events.
Francis is visiting Naples Saturday as part of a packed day in which the pontiff will first stop in the historic city of Pompeii. After praying at a sanctuary in Pompeii, the pope will hold six different events in Naples, including an outdoor Mass and meetings with diocesan clergy and religious, sick persons, and young people.
According to the Vatican Insider report, the pontiff’s lunch with the prisoners will be cooked by the prisoners themselves and will include detainees from two nearby institutions.
Naples, located about 150 miles south of Rome, is the capital of the Italian region of Campania and the third largest city in the country.
The visit will be the pope’s eighth inside Italy since his election in March 2013, following visits last year to the northern Italian city of Redipuglia and the southern Italian cities of Caserta, Molise, and Cassano all’Jonio.

As this news is just breaking in the English-speaking world, we can only give you more information from Italian sources at the moment:
- “Anche 10 transessuali pranzeranno con il Papa a Poggioreale” (Vatican Insider)
- “Papa Francesco a pranzo con 10 transessuali“ (Today)
- “Papa Francesco pranzerà con i detenuti a Poggioreale nella sua visita in città” (24 News)
- “I detenuti di Poggioreale: il Papa si farà nostro portavoce” (Radio Vaticana)
Now, please, let no one say that this can’t be seen as Francis endorsing transsexuals since these were only chosen by lot from all inmates, that is, by means of a raffle, and there are 80 others. Bergoglio’s endorsement of and invitation to a woman-surgically-altered-to-look-like-a-man earlier this year made very clear what he thinks about perverts and their disordered lifestyles and desire for bodily mutilation. This woman (posing now as a man) came with her female “fiancée” and told Francis they want to “have a family”, which he was reportedly pleased to hear (see full story here).
Of course, the likes of Mark Shea and other Novus Ordo apologists are going to immediately accuse anyone objecting to these scandals as being pharisees, quoting Holy Scripture: “And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying: This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them” (Lk 15:2). What this fails to address, however, is that although Christ did indeed meet with sinners, He did so exclusively in order to convert them; He sought them out to bring the Gospel to them and restore them to a life of sanctity: “…go after that which was lost, until he find it” (Lk 15:4); “Go, and now sin no more” (Jn 8:11); “They that are well have no need of a physician, but they that are sick” (Mk 2:17); etc.
Francis doesn’t do this; on the contrary, he has a history of confirming sinners in their sins and unbelievers in their unbelief, while constantly spanking people in his church who try to be good Catholics, as we have amply documented throughout this web site — so much so that unreprentant public sinners like Elton John and Madonna have made known their endorsement for the Argentinian apostate.
Francis likes to meet and eat with all sorts of people he shouldn’t be meeting with: For example, Protestants, whom he told they “have the Holy Spirit within” them and to whom he made clear he is not interested in seeking their conversion to Catholicism; as well as Jews, in whose presence he hid his pectoral cross and for whom he had the Vatican’s Santa Marta kitchen turned kosher as part of his “Day of Judaism” at the Vatican. Yes, Mr. “Preach the Gospel always” definitely knows how to refrain from preaching the Gospel.
Under Francis, the Modernist madness in Rome is reaching unprecedented proportions and uncharted territories. There is no doubt that that FranciSchism is coming, folks. Things won’t go on like this without someone blowing a fuse soon. Such an intra-NovusOrdo schism, however, will not be a good thing in the long run, objectively speaking, because it will create the illusion that by adhering to the anti-Francis faction, one has escaped the clutches of the Modernist sect and retains Catholic orthodoxy, which is precisely what one Novus Ordo anti-Francis group is already claiming. This will not be in fact so. A schism within the Novus Ordo Sect, with Ratzinger/Wojtyla “traditionalists” on the one side and Bergoglio liberals on the other, will only serve to keep people adhering in one way or another to the false church and away from the hard truth that the Catholic Church has been without a Pope since Pius XII died in 1958. Thus, even though a schism would weaken Francis tremendously, it would ultimately only helpthe Modernist revolution, because those of the misled who in good faith adhere to the anti-Francis faction will think themselves to have escaped the deception, when they will in fact but adhere to a different side of it.
