Francis blesses Adulterous Union of Colombian President
While visiting Colombia Sep. 6-10, “Pope” Francis naturally met with the nation’s president, Juan Manuel Santos Calderón. Santos is civilly “married” to María Clemencia Rodríguez Múnera. This is the second “marriage” for both of them. Santos’ first/only wife is Silvia Amaya Londoño (source), and Rodríguez’ first/only husband is Christian Toro Ibler (source).
In other words, their current union is adulterous. That is the clear, certain, and irreversible (ha!) position of the Roman Catholic Church.
On Sep. 10, Rodríguez sent a tweet which included a short video clip that shows Francis giving a blessing to her and her supposed “husband” (not that Francis is actually capable of giving a valid blessing — but that’s beside the point here).… READ MORE

Cardinal Muller dismissed by Pope Francis
His Eminence, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since July 2, 2012, has been dismissed by Pope Francis exactly 5 years after expiration of his term of office.
Cardinal Muller is one of the cardinals who have tried to interpret Amoris Laetitia using a hermeneutic of continuity with Church Tradition.

Goodbye, Amoris Laetitia:
The Real Catholic Position on “Irregular Unions”
For the last 14 months we have heard words like accompaniment, integration, discernment, walking together, dialoguing, listening, etc., ad nauseam, specifically with regard to those who live in what the Novus Ordo Sect euphemistically calls “irregular unions” — in other words, people who live in adultery, in fornication, or in unnatural relationships.
After two turbulent and controversial Vatican synods on the family, which convened in 2014 and 2015, respectively, the world was anxiously awaiting “the Pope’s decisive judgment on the matter”. What was “Pope” Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, going to do?… READ MORE

On Gospel Text forbidding Adultery, Francis denounces “Casuistry”
To ensure that no word of Jesus Christ will ever go understood correctly again, “Pope” Francis has been on an unrelenting diabolical mission of twisting Scriptural texts as they come up each day in the Novus Ordo lectionary. Since his installation in 2013, the Casa Santa Marta’s most obnoxious squatter has been distorting biblical passages on a daily basis to advance his very own personal “gospel”, one in which we hear an awful lot about this world, especially the poor and the suffering, but next to nothing about the importance of the afterlife, the soul, grace, justification, faith, the rights and dignity of God, etc.… READ MORE

Vatican Sources: Francis Not Responding to Dubia “to Prevent Greater Evil”!
The new year began the same way the old one ended: with lots of breaking news on Amoris Laetitia, the infamous “Apostolic exhortation” on the family that effectively gives public adulterers the permission to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion and penance (confession) without having to cease their adulterous activities. The “theological” basis Francis provides for this absurdity is a redefinition of sin from “voluntary transgession of the divine law” into “the best you can do for the moment, although falling short of the ideal”.… READ MORE

Amoris Laetitia and Concrete Cases:
A Reply to Austen Ivereigh
One of Francis’ biggest cheerleaders on and off the internet is the British writer Dr. Austen Ivereigh. He is the author of a comprehensive biography of Jorge Bergoglio entitled, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope (2014).
As a contributor to various Novus Ordo publications, the left-leaning Ivereigh occasionally writes pieces defending Francis’ more controversial moves. One such attempt was recently published at Crux:
In this piece, which is essentially a high-level critique of the dubia submitted by “Cardinal” Raymond Burke & Co.… READ MORE

Francis denounces “Decadent Scholasticism”
One of the many things that “went under”, so to speak, in the flurry of breaking news stories from the Vatican in recent weeks, is the question-and-answer session Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) gave to his fellow-Jesuits after presenting a speech at their 36th General Congregation on October 24, 2016. The Rome-based Jesuit periodical La Civiltà Cattolica has published the full Q&A text online here.
No, don’t worry, we will not slog through the entire thing now. Those who have not yet had enough of Francis’ blather can read the whole piece for themselves. … READ MORE

Brandmuller: “It’s all or nothing”…
Francis: “I may go down in history as the one who split the Catholic Church”!
Just a few hours ago, the online edition of the secularist German periodical Der Spiegel published an interesting article on Francis’ explosive Christmas greetings to his curia yesterday and the general atmosphere in the Vatican. The article, penned by Walter Mayr, is entitled, “Der Papst kocht”, which translates as, “The Pope is fuming”, a reference to Edward Pentin’s recent revelation that Francis was “boiling with rage” at the public release of the dubia submitted by “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmüller, Caffarra, and Meisner in November.… READ MORE
A very important reality check
Hey, Dubia Supporters! Where were you when John Paul II allowed Protestants to receive “Communion”?

These days a good portion of the Novus Ordo world is up in arms about “Pope” Francis’ attempts to permit unrepentant public adulterers to receive the [Novus Ordo] sacraments, and rightly so. A veritable schism seems to be forming at this time, as countless clergy and laymen are rallying behind the four no-compromise “cardinals” who have made it clear that they will not stand for this attempt to dispense from the Sixth Commandment.… READ MORE
Hard-hitting speech condemns Francis
“Bishop” Schneider rocks Rome, accuses Francis of promoting “The Joy of Adultery” by pretending to Dispense from the Sixth Commandment

The prelude to a formal schism within the Novus Ordo Sect has just reached a new stage: On Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, the Rome-based Lepanto Foundation held a conference in the Eternal City on Christian marriage and the errors of “Pope” Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The well-attended conference was hosted by the Foundation‘s president, Roberto de Mattei, and took place only about 3 miles from the Vatican.… READ MORE
Athanasius Schneider on French TV:
“A certain kind of Schism already exists in the Church”
On Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016, the internet-based French television station TV Libertés aired an installment of its program Terres de Mission. One of its guests was Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary “bishop” of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, who was interviewed about the fallout from the dubia submitted to “Pope” Francis to receive clarification on certain points contained in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The entire program can be watched in the original French here.
We have taken the portion of the broadcast that contains the interview with Mr.… READ MORE
Genuine Misquote or Damage Control Effort?
Dean Pinto of Roman Rota says he did Not issue Threat to Four “Cardinals”
Come on, would this face lie to you? (AP Photo/Riccardo De Luca)
An interesting development has occurred, and it’s one that will probably make you chuckle.
On Nov. 29, the Spanish web site Religion Confidencial published a report according to which the dean of the Novus Ordo Sect’s Roman Rota — the Vatican’s highest appeals court — had issued a threat against the four “dubia cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra, basically for challenging Francis in public to either fish or cut bait, as it were, regarding “Holy Communion” for adulterers and other more basic moral issues in the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.… READ MORE

[UPDATE: “Mgr.” Pinto says he was misquoted, Religion Confidencial issues retraction]
We all know that Francis is the champion of dialogue and encounter, but when “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra recently did nothing more than ask five very specific questions on a very important theological matter they wanted clarification on, the ever-so-humble Argentinian bridge builder decided to put up a wall: In a defeaning silence, he simply refused to answer.… READ MORE
