Refutation of ‘On the Validity of Pope Francis’…

On Sep. 6, 2023, the Rev. James Altman — one of the “canceled priests” in the United States — published a video in which he explained, in his own style, why he believes that Jorge Mario Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) is not in fact the Pope of the Catholic Church:
This has of course triggered a wave of reactions, mostly by recognize-and-resist traditionalists (“semi-trads”) and conservative Novus Ordos who had shown support for ‘Fr.’… READ MORE

More Heresy from the False Pope:
Every One of Us is Forgiven!
It’s Sunday, and that usually means the world’s most talkative apostate, Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’), gives a catechetical reflection on the day’s Gospel before praying the Angelus at noon in Rome with the few hapless souls who have come to see him, mistaking him for the Pope of the Catholic Church.
Today’s Gospel reading, according to the liturgical calendar of the Novus Ordo missal of Paul VI, is Mt 18:21-35, in which our Blessed Lord tells the parable of the unforgiving servant.… READ MORE

A Commentary on the sticky Strickland Situation
By now presumably everyone reading this post is aware of the news The Pillar broke on Monday:

At a meeting Saturday [Sep. 9. 2023], Pope Francis discussed with Vatican officials the prospect of requesting the resignation of Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, The Pillar has learned.
The pope met Sept. 9 with Archbishop Robert Prevost, OSA, head of the Dicastery for Bishops, and Archbishop Christophe Pierre, apostolic nuncio to the United States – both cardinals-elect.
Several sources close to the dicastery told The Pillar ahead of the meeting that the prelates would present the pope with the results of an apostolic visitation of Strickland’s diocese, conducted earlier this year, as well as subsequent public actions by the bishop, who has emerged as an outspoken critic of the Holy Father.
Anything but the Gospel…
Pie in the Sky: Francis offers Pseudo-Religious Drivel to Mongolian Authorities
The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio — stage name: ‘Pope Francis’ — spent the first few days of the month of September in Mongolia. The official motto of his 43rd blather tour outside Vatican City, solemnly styled an ‘apostolic journey’, was Hoping Together. Precisely what the object of that hope is supposed to be, was not explained, but we can be certain it’s not the Beatific Vision.
On Sep. 2, 2023, the fake pope met with Mongolian president Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh and other authorities and diplomats at the state palace:

Francis to Jesuits in Portugal: Some Sodomites aren’t ‘Capable’ or ‘Mature Enough’ to Stop Sinning!
When Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) visited Lisbon in early August for World Youth Day, he also met with members of the Jesuit province there, as is his custom.
An English transcript of the question-and-answer session was released on Aug. 28, 2023, by the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, S.J., who just recently published a blasphemous sermon on Our Lord’s encounter with the Canaanite woman:
As always, Francis had a lot to say.… READ MORE

Francis: Jesus Wasn’t Rigid, He Changed His Attitude!
Probably one reason why ‘Pope Francis’ (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) loves to talk so much is that it is the best way for him to change the Gospel and communicate his false doctrines. Barely a Sunday goes by on which he doesn’t use the opportunity to put his own spin on the teaching of Christ found in the Gospel reading of the day, sometimes to the point of distorting completely the message the Son of God actually transmitted.
For a long time now, one of the false pope’s favorite themes has been that of condemning “rigidity”.… READ MORE

In new Interview, Francis rebukes Traditionalists, calls himself ‘Victim of the Holy Spirit’
Few people love to hear themselves talk more than the octogenarian apostate Jorge Bergoglio from Buenos Aires. Under his appropriated moniker ‘Pope Francis’, the stream of words that continually pours from his profane lips does immense damage to countless souls who mistakenly think this Modernist Jesuit is the Pope of the Catholic Church, the Vicar of Christ, the Father and Teacher of all Christians.
The ‘Catholic Woodstock’ event formally known as World Youth Day is currently underway, and during this time the Spain-based religious publication Vida Nueva has published a colossal new interview with the garrulous Jesuit.… READ MORE

Podcasting Francis tells Transgender Person:
‘God loves us as we are’
As if the world weren’t inundated with enough Bergoglian blather yet, the Vatican is now producing an Italian-language podcast with ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), inappropriately called the Popecast.
Whereas Apostatecast would be a much more fitting title, it would considerably weaken the Argentinian Jesuit’s influence, since all the de facto power Francis wields over souls lies in the fact that most people accept him for what he claims to be but in reality is not: the Sovereign Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.… READ MORE
Louie Verrecchio hits a home run!
Is Jorge Bergoglio’s Claim to the Papacy Legitimate?
A 60-minute reality check with Louie Verrecchio…
Louie Verrecchio was once a big defender and ‘explainer’ of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65). Under the title “Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II”, he published a “faith formation series” and used to give lectures on the “authentic teachings” of the council, in a spirit of that fabled “hermeneutic of continuity and reform”. An archived snapshot of his web site as it looked in 2011 can be accessed here.
At some point, however, Mr. Verrecchio found himself confronted with more and more evidence from the pre-Vatican II magisterium and the undeniable facts of recent Church history so that he became convinced that his “conservative Novus Ordo” position was simply unsustainable.… READ MORE
New interview with the false pope!
Francis denounces Burning of the Muslim Koran in Sweden
The papal impostor put on his pensive face for the interview with Al-Ittihad
The Vatican may be on its annual summer break all through July, but the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) has a way of making sure he remains in the news nonetheless.
Not surprisingly, therefore, the month had barely started when yet another interview with Francis was published, this time by Al-Ittihad, a newspaper from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on July 3:
This is the first time Bergoglio has given an interview to a publication from the UAE.… READ MORE
Says Francis lost Papacy years ago…
Rev. James Altman at Canceled Priests’ Conference:
‘Bergoglio is Not a Pope’
A 40-minute lecture given by ‘Father’ James Altman (why ‘Father’?) at the Canceled Priests’ Conference in Chicago this past June has just been released on YouTube. It is sure to make waves because, apparently for the first time ever, ‘Fr.’ Altman states in public that he believes Francis is no longer a true Pope, that he lost the Papacy years ago. We will examine this in a minute.
The so-called Coalition for Canceled Priests describes itself as “a group of committed Catholic lay people and clergy who came together in 2021 after one too many instances of persecution of holy, traditional, and orthodox priests”, with a mission “to spiritually and materially supporting faithful priests who seek to return to active ministry after being unjustly canceled by their bishops”.… READ MORE

Francis receives former U.S. President Bill Clinton
Two non-Catholic globalists greeting each other at the Vatican, July 5, 2023
The Vatican has released a brief video clip from today showing ‘Pope’ Francis receiving former U.S. president Bill Clinton (1993-2001) at the Casa Santa Marta, the Vatican guest house the Argentinian apostate has been occupying since the conclave of 2013.
Here it is:
This was evidently a rather jovial encounter, and there is no doubt that these two non-Catholics have a lot in common. (At least one of the two refrains from pretending to be a Catholic, even though he received Novus Ordo communion once.)… READ MORE
