Francis stacks the deck…

Surprise! Francis names Blase Cupich a “Cardinal” — and 16 Others

Look, we told you this would happen, but it’s not like this required any special predicting abilities: On October 9, 2016, “Pope” Francis announced that Archlayman Blase Cupich of Chicago — “The Dirtbag” — would become a “cardinal”. Mr. Cupich will receive the red hat on November 19 at an extraordinary consistory in the Vatican. Apparently Francis couldn’t wait until February rolls around, which is the typical month for the creation of new cardinals, around the feast of the Chair of St. Peter at Antioch (Feb. 22).

What are the facts about Mr. Cupich, and why do we brazenly call him “The Dirtbag”? Let’s recap:

In early July, Francis had appointed Cupich to the Vatican’s Congregation of Bishops, which is the committee that suggests names to the “Pope” of people who should be made “bishops”. In other words, Cupich is in a place where he can do the greatest and most lasting damage. Here is our post on that:

By the way, although some semi-traditionalists conveniently refer to Cupich as a “FrancisBishop”, the truth is that the person who is responsible for him becoming a “bishop” in the first place is “Pope” John Paul II, who appointed him in 1998. Ordained a Novus Ordo priest in 1975 and raised to the Novus Ordo episcopacy 13 years later, the good news is that Mr. Cupich is nothing but a layman in a fancy bishop’s costume, as the Novus Ordo ordination rite, imposed in 1968, is invalid.

Of course Francis didn’t only name Mr. Cupich a “cardinal” on October 9; he also named 16 others, a good number of whom are men after Jorge Bergoglio’s own heart. Two other American “bishops” selected by Francis are Kevin Farrell (formerly of Dallas, now in the Roman Curia) and Joseph Tobin of Indianapolis (not to be confused with Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island).

Here is the full list:

Archbishop Mario Zenari, Italy
Archbishop Dieudonné Nzapalainga, Central African Republic
Archbishop Carlos Osoro Sierra, Spain
Archbishop Sérgio da Rocha, Brazil
Archbishop Blase J. Cupich, U.S.A.
Archbishop Patrick D’Rozario, Bangladesh
Archbishop Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo, Venezuela
Archbishop Jozef De Kesel, Belgium
Archbishop Maurice Piat, Mauritius
Archbishop Kevin Joseph Farrell, U.S.A.
Archbishop Carlos Aguiar Retes, Mexico
Archbishop John Ribat, Papua Nuova Guinea
Archbishop Mons. Joseph William Tobin U.S.A.
Archbishop Anthony Soter Fernandez, Archbishop Emeritus of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
Archbishop Renato Corti, Archbishop Emeritus of Novara Italy
Archbishop Sebastian Koto Khoarai, Bishop Emeritus of Mohale’s Hoek Lesotho
Father Ernest Simoni, presbytery of the Archdiocese of Shkodrë-Pult, Scutari – Albania

More information and statistics on these characters and on prior consistories is available at the Catholic Hierarchy web site.

Francis’ shtick about finding the most remote regions of the earth and then creating someone a cardinal there, is wearing out fast and has the appearance of being little more than trying to showcase once again how special he is. At this point, a Novus Ordo parochial vicar in Micronesia has a better chance of being named “cardinal” than the “Archbishop” of Venice, Italy.

Many of these new “cardinals” are dyed-in-the-wool progressives, that is, super-Modernists, just like Cupich and Francis himself, at least as far as the more well-known among them go. The following links give more information about the new picks:

The semi-traditionalists of the recognize-and-resist persuasion will be horrified and furious at this, but they are merely reaping what they have sown. As we have said before, you get the “Pope” you are willing to accept: They accept a public heretic as Pope, so they shouldn’t be surprised about having a public heretic. “Ideas have consequences”, as the philosophers say. Or, “Heresy is as heresy does”, as Forrest Gump might say.

By the way, out of these 17 new “cardinals”, 13 of them are currently young enough to vote in the next conclave. Francis is clearly stacking the deck by putting twins of his own theological self into powerful positions to ensure that his false gospel will be cemented in Vatican City and throughout the world for the decades to come.

    I have met Cupich before, TRUE STORY…I asked him why he is giving communion to Pro abortion politicians such as Dick Durbin, about three months after he went on Face the Nation and said that his hope was that by giving them communion, that it would impart grace and some kind or type of conversion….Well, as you can see with Durbin and Biden and countless others, they have not really changed, they still support slaughtering babies several years later..
    Anyway, he responded to me by saying that Dick Durbin never had an abortion, that I need to take up my beef with the Supreme Court..I responded by saying that, he SUPPORTS IT, who cares if he never had an abortion…He essentially blew me off…Yes, THIS is who the POPE just promoted to cardinal…QUITE SAD, ISN’T IT??

    • corvinus

      Isn’t it an article of the Catholic Faith that if you receive Communion while in the state of mortal sin, you commit a mortal sin? And if you deny that, you’re… well… a heretic?

    Thanks for exposing this vile faggot loving fraud. The fotos of the destruction of the chapel in Columbus Ohio are really breathtaking, almost an icon of the spirit of destruction at work in the church by the instruments of satan like Cupich.

      Thank you JMoore for getting me to look at the 2014 article on Columbus, Ohio. The situation looks like the historical monument here, the venerable Our Lady of Peace Cathedral so deprived now. My grandfather founded a Lutheran seminary in Canada after coming from Germany. I understand the deprivation of Protestants, brought up Episcopalian. Communal OLP service is more protestant in a number of ways than the Episcopalian service.

    A perfect opportunity to beat Francis-excusers over the head. There are too many conservative Catholics who insist that Francis is being misinterpreted by the media. And I should point out that until now, Francis had never actually named any new cardinals for the United States.

    Well if he’s simply being misinterpreted by the media, why does he promote radical progs to positions of power every chance he gets, and sideline the “conservatives”?

      corvinus, I disagree with you here also. Pope Francis is the best thing to happen in the RC Church in decades. He will heal much of the damage done by his two immediate predecessors. Unfortunately, he can not heal the grievous error Pope John Paul made with regard to birth control.

      Don’t forget, rules of the church are rules made by men, not God, and they are flawed.The Rules of the Franciscan Order confirm this in allowing Franciscans to dispute the Pope. But it appears that as well as being a right winger in politics, you are a right winger in religion. Both positions are erroneous and harmful to humankind.

        What, in your view, are some other good things that have happened in the Catholic Church? How about the Council of Trent? The teaching of Pope St. Pius X against modernism?

        What’s your rule for deciding what is good or bad?

        • PreserveCivility

          I don’t have rules for deciding good or bad, nor am I a religious historian. And anything I decide to be good or bad is a decision for myself anyway. But I might say a good thing was Pope Benedict’s resignation.

          You asked for my view and there it is. I am not debating it.

          • Eric H

            Ok. A brief look at your disqus comments shows that you often try to propagate your views of what is good or bad. But you decide these things just for yourself? Without rules, so just arbitrarily?

          • JBQ21

            Again, “PreserveCivility” is only following the philosophy of his mentor. If you can think it and accept it, then it is right. It is called the “primacy of conscience”. This is great. We can start closing the prisons.

          • JBQ21

            Francis is quite a big proponent of “the primacy of conscience”. In this context, Jack the Ripper was a saint. His conscience ruled his life and he stuck with it. I would presume that Francis would not agree with Sigmund Freud on the nature of obsession which could be mistaken for conscience.

      • JBQ21

        @PreserveCivility: It would appear that Francis is “the great destroyer” written of by Malachi Martin. He wants to “blow up” the Church and then rebuild it. That is what the Marine Corps does. Just think Marine Corps from a gay perspective.
