Francis: ‘I Don’t Read Websites that Accuse Me of Being a Heretic’
Last month “Pope” Francis traveled to Chile and Peru (see our coverage here). On such trips Jorge Bergoglio likes to privately visit with his fellow-Jesuits for off-the-cuff questions and answers, and this he did on Jan. 16 in Santiago, Chile and on Jan. 19 in Lima, Peru. Transcripts of the conversations are always made, but to translate and release them is a privilege that belongs to “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, editor-in-chief of La Civiltà Cattolica, which was once a prestigious Jesuit review but now is simply another Modernist rag cheering on the destruction of Catholicism.
On Feb. 15, 2018, Mr. Spadaro published the transcripts on the internet. The English version is accessible here:
- Francis’ Conversations with Jesuits in Chile and Peru (La Civiltà Cattolica)
In Chile, the first question Francis was asked concerned the great joys and disappointments in his “pontificate” so far. The papal impostor wasted no time to point out that what hurts him is gossip: “There is something that does not take peace away from me, but which does hurt me, and that is gossip. I don’t like gossip, it makes me sad.” In saying this he revealed once more his bizarre preoccupation with this particular sin, which he has had a veritable obsession to preach against, and which he even likes to identify as “terrorism”.
At one point in his fake pontificate, Francis even said that he wants Vatican security to act as gossip police:
“The worst bomb inside the Vatican is gossip,” which “threatens the life of the church and the life of (the Vatican) every day,” [Francis] said, because it “sows destruction” and “destroys the lives of others.”
While there are many religious and laypeople in the Vatican who are “sowing good seed,” the devil is still getting his way by using others “to sow weeds.”
Even the pope is not immune to this temptation, he said; it’s a danger “for me, too,” because “the devil gives you that yearning.”
So in addition to looking for the usual security threats, the pope told the security guards to also crack down on backstabbing and courageously call people out.
Stop them in their tracks and say, “Please sir, please ma’am, please father, please sister, please your Excellency, please your Eminence, please Holy Father, don’t gossip; that’s not allowed here,” the pope said.
(Carol Glatz, “Pope launches alarm, tells Vatican security force to be ‘gossip police'”, Catholic News Service, Sep. 30, 2014)
Certainly, detraction and calumny are sins, but they are not what is ailing this world. Francis’ excessive denunciation of sins of the tongue suggests he is trying to suppress — or at least keep from escalating — the ever-increasing criticism of his own person inside and outside the Vatican. His Christmas address to the Roman Curia last year was particularly interesting in that regard, as he seemed to be dropping hints that he has eyes, ears, and mouths in his faithful collaborators to report to him the goings-on behind his back.
The second question Francis was asked in Santiago was not unrelated to the first. A Jesuit from the Argentine-Uruguayan province asked him what resistance he had encountered during his time as “Pope”, and how he had dealt with it. Francis answered that he finds conflicts helpful if they arise simply from a misunderstanding. On the other hand, real disagreement with him, real resistance to him, is something that “displeases” him:
But when I am aware that there is true resistance, certainly, I am displeased. Some say to me that it is normal that there is resistance when someone wants to make changes. The famous “this has always been done this way” reigns everywhere: “It has always been done this way, why should we change? If things are the way they are, they have always been done this way, so why change?” This a great temptation that we all faced in the period after the Second Vatican Council. The resistances are still present and try to tell us to relativize the Council, to water it down. I am even sadder when someone joins a campaign of resistance. And alas I see this too. You asked me about resistances, and I cannot deny that there are some, then. I see them and I know them.
There are doctrinal resistances that you know about better than I. For my own good I do not read the content of internet sites of this so-called “resistance.” I know who they are, I know the groups, but I do not read them for my own mental health. If there is something very serious, they tell me about it so that I know. You know them… It is displeasing, but you have to go on. Historians tell us that it takes a century for a Council to put down its roots. We are halfway there.
Sometimes we ask: but that man, that woman, have they read the Council? And there are people who have not read the Council. And if they have read it, they have not understood it. Fifty years on! We studied philosophy before the Council, but we had the advantage of studying theology after it. We lived through the change of perspective, and the Council documents were already there.
When I perceive resistance, I seek dialogue whenever it is possible; but some resistance comes from people who believe they possess the true doctrine and accuse you of being a heretic. When I cannot see spiritual goodness in what these people say or write, I simply pray for them. I find it sad, but I won’t settle on this sentiment for the sake of my own mental well-being.

Ah yes, the Golden Calf of Vatican II. It’s all they have. Their whole religion rests on that council. Take it away, and the whole thing collapses — which is precisely why they will never abandon it. It is the ultimate ground of their strange new Modernist religion. Whenever Novus Ordos find themselves cornered, they appeal to their abominable robber synod, which they insist was the gift of the Holy Ghost. But, as our Lord said, “By their fruits you shall know them…. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit” (Mt 7:16,18).
This is one of the reasons why it is so important to understand that Paul VI was not a true Pope. For had he been one, Vatican II would have been a valid and licit ecumenical council, one whose decrees are binding on the Catholic conscience; for each document was solemnly ratified by Paul VI, who invoked his supposed “Apostolic Authority” and “together with all the Venerable Fathers, in the Holy Ghost approve[d], decree[d] and establish[ed] these things” and “promulgated [them] unto the glory of God”, as each conciliar document says at the very end (for example, see here in Latin). In short, if Paul VI had been a true Pope, the Catholic religion would be a fraud.
So Francis won’t read web sites that contradict him, resist him, call him out on his heresies. “For my own mental health”, he notes — quite ironically, since that is the very reason why many people don’t read his stuff.
Poor Francis, he is disturbed by accusations of heresy! But Mr. Bergoglio, have you forgotten already? Have you forgotten that you yourself are on record warning your audience that your doctrine of an “ecumenism of blood” might be a heresy? Have you forgotten that you shrugged off concerns about “Cardinal” Kasper spreading heresy? Have you forgotten that four “cardinals” wanted to eliminate misunderstanding and asked you to clarify your positions in Amoris Laetitia? Indeed, they even asked for a dialogue?
So much for Francis being merely a “material” heretic, totally ignorant of even the basics of Catholicism, not having the faintest inkling that he’s preaching a false gospel. So much for Francis “seek[ing] dialogue whenever it is possible.”
Yes, Francis, just imagine! Some people believe they have the true doctrine! Such as St. Paul the Apostle, for example, who boldly proclaimed: “The truth of Christ is in me…” (2 Cor 11:10). The Roman Catholic Church knows she has the truth, for she is “the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15). For this reason she can demand that her dogmas be accepted as “truths which have fallen from heaven” (cf. Pope St. Pius X, Decree Lamentabili, n. 22), with nothing less than divine Faith, which “must exclude not only all doubt, but all desire for demonstration” (Catechism of the Council of Trent, Creed: Article 1).
By the way, a massive laundry list of Francis’ never-ending heresies, errors, blasphemies, impieties, and scandals is available here:
Just do a search for the word “heresy” or “heretical” on that page and look at what you get. A search for the word “blasphemy” will also light up a few items.
We’re definitely not heartbroken to hear that Francis won’t read web sites like Novus Ordo Watch — we’re not exactly publishing this content for him, you know. Francis knows that all the many “resistance” web sites, i.e. web sites of the semi-traditionalists and conservative Novus Ordos who fault him for various things but ultimately still accept him as Pope, pose no real threat to him. For all his strength lies in being recognized as Pope, even if he is disobeyed and resisted. That is why ultimately only sedevacantists can offer him real resistance; only Sedevacantism can truly frighten him. Not only do we expose his blasphemies, heresies, and other errors; we also call his bluff. He is a charlatan, an impostor, an anti-Catholic, a mere layman dressed in (not even fancy) robes — and he must be denounced as such.
For those of our readers with a sense of humor, the following video clip reveals how Francis reacts when he finds out that Vatican employees have been surfing Novus Ordo Watch:
Maybe one day an informant inside the Casa Santa Marta will spill the beans on how Francis really reacts with regard to those who accuse him of heresy.
But there we go with the gossip again!
