Chronicling the Chaos following the Correctio Filialis
Remember the “Synod on the Family” in 2014? That’s when all the talk about “communion for the divorced-and-remarried” started. At the time, there was no end to hearing about the “October Synod”. When the first synod document was released, the so-called Relatio Post Disceptationem (“Report after Discussions”), all hell broke loose, although the usual Novus Ordo apologists were still trying to save the baby. Mr. John Zuhlsdorf (“Fr. Z”), for example, told his readers to beware of media distortions, warning of a “Synod of the Media”.… READ MORE
“Filial Correction on Account of the Propagation of Heresies”…
Bergoglio takes a Blow:
“Filial Correction” accuses Francis of Heresy
The Novus Ordo world is in uproar: A group of clergy and laity affiliated with the Vatican II Sect have solemnly accused “Pope” Francis of heresy. In a 25-page document entitled Correctio Filialis De Haeresibus Propagatis (“Filial Correction on Account of the Propagation of Heresies”), 62 Novus Ordo scholars accuse Francis of seven heresies found in his “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia of Mar. 19, 2016.
The document was delivered to the papal pretender on Aug. 11, 2017 at the Casa Santa Marta in Vatican City.… 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

Dean of Roman Rota: “Four Cardinals who have written to Pope could lose their Cardinalate”

[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
Transgenders? Case by Case!
“Welcome, accompany, study, discern, integrate”!

One day after blasphemously declaring that seeking the conversion of non-Catholics is a “great sin against ecumenism”, “Pope” Francis has now weighed in on how to provide pastoral care to people who are not sure whether they are male or female or something else entirely (so-called “transgender” people).
In the much-anticipated in-flight “papal” interview aboard the plane taking him back to Rome from Azerbaijan, where the number of Francis adherents can fit in an elevator, the Argentinian Jesuit was asked by a journalist what he would “say to those who are suffering and feel that their sexual identity does not correspond to their biological one”.… READ MORE
Permission for Adulterers to receive “Communion” is Only Authentic Interpretation of Amoris Laetitia

An Ottaviani Intervention for Novus Ordos
Full Text Leaked: 45 Novus Ordo Scholars Condemn Amoris Laetitia as Heretical
The laughing stock that is the Novus Ordo Church is getting more and more absurd by the day. A few weeks ago was the first time we heard about a substantial scholarly critique of “Pope” Francis’ supposed “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, the blasphemous and heretical document in which Francis undermines not only Catholic teaching on sexuality but obliterates the very foundations of Catholic moral theology. (See our memes that illustrate the absurd effects of the teaching contained in Amoris Laetitia.)
The critical study, together with its accompanying June 29 letter addressed to the Dean of the College of “Cardinals”, Angelo Sodano, was signed by 45 theologians and other scholars in the New Church and sent to all 219 “cardinals” around the globe.… READ MORE
Chaos Frank opened his trap again…
Francis: “Great Majority” of Marriages today are Invalid because People don’t realize it’s indissoluble — but “Fidelity” in Cohabitation = Real Marriage!
[UPDATE 17-JUN-2016 18:01 UTC: Vatican edits official transcript, changes Francis’ actual words “a great majority of” into “part of”. In either case, however, the fundamental problem remains: Francis believes sacramental marriages are invalid if people do not know or understand that marriage is permanent for life — how many such cases there actually are, is insignificant; the point is that Francis admits the principle! And he furthermore believes that fornication with only one and the same partner equals a real marriage!]… READ MORE

This is the day Michael Voris must have been waiting for: Francis finally condemns heretics! Quick, everyone: Fire up the Vortex cameras and get everything ready on the web site to report on this breaking news!
On second thought, maybe not… Unfortunately for Mr. Voris and his Church Militant crew, Francis condemns as heretical precisely the kind of Catholic Michael Voris considers himself to be. Ouch! (Tim Haines, he means you too!)
On Thursday, June 9, Francis once again outdid himself in the sermon he gave at the daily “Mass” at Casa Santa Marta, this time on the Gospel of St.… READ MORE

Francis confirms: “YES”, Sacraments for Public Adulterers now an Option, points to “Cardinal” Schönborn’s Explanation

Bad news for “Cardinal” Burke, Michael Voris, Dave Armstrong, Tim Haines, and the rest of the conservative Novus Ordo crowd that thought they could explain it away: Francis has just personally confirmed that yes, with the publication of Amoris Laetitia, there are now new options availbable for unrepentant public adulterers and fornicators (possibly also for sodomites), options that were not available before, with regard to access to the Novus Ordo “sacraments.”… READ MORE

After Amoris Laetitia:
Illustrating the Absurdity
To illustate the absurdity and folly of “Pope” Francis’ Post-Synodal “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, we have put together a few memes for sharing on social media that all are welcome to disseminate widely. The idea is to quickly reach more people with the truth that what is put out by the Vatican II Sect as “Catholicism” is utter Modernist garbage and does not deserve to be taken seriously. Sometimes it is easier to communicate ideas to people by means of satire in a cartoon, a picture, or a meme, especially to those people who do shy away from reading.… READ MORE

Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has caused the predicted chaos among conservative adherents of the Vatican II religion, although a few are still in denial. Approximately 18 hours since its official release, plenty of summaries, commentaries, and reactions continue to pour in. We are chronicling the meltdown and present the most explosive quotes from the wordy document in the following two links:
Meanwhile, the German intellectual review Merkur has published an interview with one of the country’s leading “papal” biographers and Vatican journalists, Andreas Englisch.… READ MORE
