Good One! Vatican Doctrinal Office Reiterates Ban on Catholics Becoming Freemasons
This past Monday, Nov. 13, the Vatican’s doctrinal office, headed by ‘Pope’ Francis’ theological undertaker ‘Cardinal’ Victor Manuel Fernandez, published a document reiterating that Catholics are forbidden from joining the Freemasons.
More technically, it was an instruction of the so-called Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF) “regarding the best pastoral approach to membership in Freemasonry by the Catholic faithful” in response to a request by ‘Bishop’ Julito Buhisan Cortes (b. 1956) of the diocese of Dumaguete, Philippines.
As the note is rather brief, we will quote it here in full:

Once again, breaking news out of Rome.
Once again, the so-called Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith has given answers to so-called dubia, which are questions (“doubts”) submitted to it concerning a point of doctrine or practice to be resolved.
Once again, the prefect, ‘Cardinal’ Victor Manuel Fernandez of ‘mouth-healing’ infamy, wrote the response and had it personally approved by ‘Pope’ Francis, whose signature appears at the end.
And once again, the text of the response is ambiguous and nuanced enough to where both proponents and opponents of transgender inclusion can quote the document in their favor.… READ MORE
The ‘New Theology’ on steroids!
‘Paradigm Shift’: Francis Issues Disastrous Motu Proprio Aimed at Theological Revolution
An extremely significant development took place in the Vatican on Nov. 1, 2023: The apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio, more commonly known under his stage name ‘Pope Francis’, published a so-called Apostolic Letter Motu Proprio — Latin for ‘on his own initiative’ — approving new statutes for the Pontifical Academy of Theology, originally founded by Pope Clement XI in 1718.
In this fairly brief document, so far available on the Vatican web site only in Italian, the false pope calls for nothing less than a revolution in theology, a ‘paradigm shift’ that will have incalculable, frightful consequences in the long term.… READ MORE

Did Francis approve Blessings for Homo Couples? Examining his Response to the Pre-Synod Dubia
October 2 of this year was D-Day — ‘Dubia Day’: The Vatican’s Dicastery for the Destruction of the Faith, now headed by ‘Cardinal’ Victor Manuel Fernandez, released official and authoritative responses (personally signed by Jorge Bergoglio, aka ‘Pope Francis’) to two sets of Dubia that had been submitted in July: one set of ten questions by ‘Cardinal’ Dominik Duka, and one set of five questions by ‘Cardinals’ Raymond Burke, Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, Walter Brandmüller, Robert Sarah, and Joseph Zen.
As was to be expected, the Vatican responses were loaded with fireworks.… READ MORE

Vatican Doctrine Office explains Amoris Laetitia:
Adultery can be a Venial Sin only!
All hell broke loose yesterday, Oct. 2, with the publication of more Dubia by five Novus Ordo cardinals after ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) had responded to their first attempt to get straight answers from the ‘Pope’ but would not answer the follow-up questions.
In the tumult of the day — following a busy weekend that saw an ecumenical prayer vigil few people bothered to attend in St. Peter’s Square, in preparation for the Synod on Synodality — there was another big story that went under: the DDF’s response to the Dubia of ‘Cardinal’ Dominik Jaroslav Duka (b.… READ MORE

New Dubia Drama:
Five Conservative ‘Cardinals’ challenge Francis
[UPDATE: We have corrected an error regarding the original formulation of the Dubia. Post revised accordingly.]
Asking ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) to clarify his doctrine is risky business — especially if he responds.
This has happened now to ‘Cardinals’ Walter Brandmuller, Raymond Burke, Joseph Zen Ze-kiun, Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, and Robert Sarah, who challenged the man they erroneously believe to be the Pope of the Catholic Church regarding matters of doctrine on faith and morals.
Back on July 10 of this year, the five Novus Ordo cardinals had submitted five specific questions to Francis in the traditional ‘dubia’ (Latin for doubts) format.… READ MORE

Fernandez on Papal Charism and the ‘Doctrine of the Holy Father’: Brazen Baloney or Traditional Teaching?
This blog is certainly the last place on earth that would want to defend ‘Archbishop’ (and almost ‘Cardinal’) Victor Manuel Fernandez, the Vatican’s new doctrine chief who is notorious for having written the book Heal Me with your Mouth: the Art of Kissing (1995). However, truth is truth, even if the ‘wrong’ person speaks it.
When the National Catholic Register released an interview with Fernandez on Sep. 11, 2023, one point immediately caught the ire and contempt of the recognize-and-resist traditionalists (we like to refer to them as “semi-trads”) on the internet.… READ MORE

Victor Manuel ‘Tucho’ Fernandez
The appointment of the new Prefect of the Dicastery for the Destruction of the Faith, Archlayman Victor Manuel Fernandez, has caused an uproar online among many of members of the Vatican II Church that are of a more conservative or traditionalist bent, and for good reason. Even the Modernist ‘Cardinal’ Gerhard Ludwig Müller, himself prefect of the Novus Ordo doctrine factory from 2012-17, is not thrilled with the choice.
There are various reasons to be upset, though not surprised, that Bergoglio should have selected the ghostwriter of Amoris Laetitia and other texts for the job of ‘top guardian of orthodoxy’, and they’re not all doctrinal.… READ MORE

When the news broke on Oct. 21, 2020, that Francis had endorsed legal protections for homosexual couples in an interview aired as part of the new documentary Francesco, it wasn’t difficult to predict that a firestorm of reactions would erupt — and boy, did it!
Before long, a veritable panoply of widely differing reactions presented itself: From irritated cries of “fake news” all the way to shrugs of “nothing new here”, from exasperated condemnations to enthusiastic applause, from “this has no authority” to “this indicates a shift in the Church” — the reactions of Vatican II “Catholics” were as varied as the liturgical chaos one finds in any Novus Ordo diocese.… READ MORE

“Heal Me with your Mouth”: Amoris Laetitia Ghostwriter’s Book on the “Art of Kissing” now in English
You may recall that approximately two years ago we reported on a curiosity about “Abp.” Victor Manuel “Tucho” Fernandez of Argentina. In 1995, while a “priest” for the diocese of Villa de la Concepción del Río Cuarto, he wrote and published a book entitled Sáname con tu Boca: El Arte de Besar (“Heal Me with your Mouth: The Art of Kissing”).
No, this isn’t satire. You couldn’t make this up if you tried!

On some recent “Papal” Images…
In terms of his personal comportment, “Pope” Francis has raised not a few eyebrows since he began to grace the world with his illegitimate presence on the Chair of St. Peter over four years ago. Whether it be the hand-holding with a homo-activist “priest”, the wearing of a rainbow-colored wristband, or his visual delight in receiving a copy of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, chances are that if Francis is around, there will be something objectionable, disturbing, or odd to photograph.
Just the last eight days have produced at least two images worthy of particular dishonorable mention.… READ MORE
