A Pagan Pontiff : Not My Pope
A PAGAN PONTIFF
Francis approvingly receives
the pagan Amazonian goddess Pachamama after the worship ceremony he
attended in the Vatican Gardens
- He abolishes the Commandments of God at will
(specifically the 1st, the 6th, and the 9th
— we are awaiting the rest)
- He has the inconceivable audacity to re-write
the ending of the only prayer that Jesus Himself explicitly
taught us (the Pater Noster, Our Father) to make
it more acceptable to “modern” sensitivities.
- He repudiates the explicit Scriptural condemnation
of homosexuality in both the Old and New Testaments (“God
made you like this.” and “Who am I to judge?”)
- He teaches that Hell does not exist —
despite Christ’s own frequent teachings concerning it — not
simply as a possibility, but as an distinct eschatological
reality to be averted at all costs. For Francis unrepentant
sinners simply vanish, cease to be, upon their death. The most
obvious consequence of this denial involves abolishing the fundamental
Christian concept pertaining to the notion of Judgment —
both the Particular and the Last Judgment,
both of which consequently become meaningless.
- For Francis all religions are willed
by God — even those that are contradictory and manifestly evil
— and which deny or denigrate Christ. Every religion leads
to God — despite what Christ said.
- Francis insists that, “Women in the Church are
more important than bishops and priests.” (Why
emphasize women to the exclusion of the laity in general?
Francis is a covert Feminist).
- Francis reproached Filipinos, telling them that
Catholics should not “breed like rabbits” — but practice
- The Church, for Francis is not the unspeakably
beautiful Bride of Christ — it is simply a “Field Hospital”.
- The Church has placed too great an emphasis
on abortion. There are other pressing issues — such as
Environmentalism. In fact the current plague COVID-19
is not some aboriginal chastisement from God, or even something
biological in origin: it is Mother Earth, the environment
“having a fit.”
- Oh, yes — atheists go to Heaven, too, together
with animists, et alia. (Why then did Christ die on the Cross?)
- At the Foot of the Cross, Francis insists
that “Mary surely wanted to say to the Angel: ‘Liar!
I was deceived.’ ”
- “I imagine Mary as a normal girl,” Francis said,
“a girl of today, open to getting married, to having a family”.
However — Mary was not just “any” girl in Holy Scripture:
at the Annunciation the Archangel Gabriel hailed her
as “full of grace”, saying,
“blessed art thou among women”
and that she would “conceive the
Son of the Most High.”
- For Francis, “Proselytism is solemn nonsense.
It makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen
to each other…” — despite the very last command of Christ
in the Gospel of Saint Matthew: “Teach ye
all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you."
- “Jesus”, Francis further claims, “came to the
world to learn to be a man and, and
being man [and with no mention of Christ’s divinity], to
walk with men.” Actually, Christ came into the world (the Incarnation)
to redeem the world, to suffer for our sins, to overcome the
devil and death — and above all to save souls.
- Francis presumes to authoritatively pontificate
on economics and politics in a way that an economist
or a politician would never dare presume to authoritatively speak
about matters religious.
- On the 50th anniversary of “Earth Day” he reproached
the Faithful, stating that “We have sinned against
- “God”, Francis assures us, “always forgives;
we humans sometimes forgive, but the earth never forgives.
If we despoil the earth, its response will be very ugly.” Can
we really look to
Mother Earth — to absolve us for using plastic as we look
to God to absolve us from our sins?
- Instead of teaching the Faith, Francis laments
the “increasing use and power of air-conditioning” as inimical
to environmentalism — even while Domus Sanctae Marthae
where he lives is air-conditioned and has refrigerators as well.
“Rigid Catholics” — whom he detests — would
rightly “rigidly” call this hypocrisy.
