What are we to Make of Francis
the audacity to contradict Holy Scripture
— which is the Word
of God Himself … by effectively abrogating the 6th of
the 10 Commandments: “Thou shalt not commit
adultery.” ( ...“except in certain circumstances ...”)
He has mandated a “correction” of the Lord’s
Prayer itself — which is the only formulated prayer
given by Jesus Christ to His Apostles and followers in the entire
New Testament — to accord with prevailing pastoral sensitivity and
theological clarity from a “stylistic viewpoint” — although
Francis knows nothing of Greek.
He surrounds himself with cardinals, bishops, priests, and influential
people sympathetic to the loathsome perversion of homosexuality
which he does not feel competent to morally assess despite clear
Old Testament and Pauline condemnations — although as pope, he is
the teacher preeminent of Catholic morality which explicitly condemns
He bows before and kisses the feet of politicians, but will
rarely accord Jesus Christ the same adulation in the Most Holy Sacrament
of the Altar — where He is really and truly present.
He is a strident and outspoken advocate of Environmentalism
but rarely speaks out against Abortion. Children in the wombs
of mothers who wish to murder them find no refuge in the Vicar of
Jesus Christ on Earth, who is apparently too busy defending fish
and non-human mammals against plastic bags.
He finds the “wisdom of Amazonian
elders” of greater depth and perspicacity than God and His prophets
— oh, yes, and “wiser” than Christ Himself (Who is God and man).
He envisions a restructured humanity that will “benefit” from a
utopian “return” to the simplistic “natural” lifestyle of indigenous
Amazon aborigines — as distinct from “the extractive monsters of
modern technology, medicine, and science.” That such a “return
to nature” (rather than a turning to God — which what Francis
should be doing as pope) entails accepting malaria, equine encephalitis,
yellow fever, dengue, Oropouche, leprosy, viral hepatitis parasitic
tegumentary leishmaniasis (a parasitic protozoan), cholera, diphtheria,
Kaposi sarcoma–associated herpes virus disease,1 deformity,
death, ignorance, and physical hardship — is of little consequence
given the mythical benefits of a “life attuned to nature”. To squat
in malarial mud is unquestionably superior to crafting a chair which
is an artificial construction involving “extractive technologies
such as crude wooden tools that themselves were “extracted” from
the very environment they manipulate …
Religion is of secondary or tertiary importance. We must
never foist Christianity or Jesus Christ on pagans who have their
own gods of nature. That is the now the forbidden practice of “proselytism”;
conversion, as a matter of course, is thus frowned upon and
discouraged as a form of western religious imperialism. They have
their own Shamans, after all, and Animism provides a plethora of
gods. Why preach the Gospel when “capitalistic western industrial
and agricultural extractivism” is the only perceptible evil? Heaven?
It is here ... in the “Amazonian Face” — from which we must learn!
He contemptuously ignores questions of the greatest import insisting
that he “will not say one word” about allegations against
him, and does not respond to pleas for clarity on Catholic doctrine
from bishops, theologians, scholars, and laymen. The Catholic doctrine
that “the First See (the pope) is judged by no-one” has been
used by Francis as both a screen and a cudgel — the ecclesiastical
equivalent of invoking the Fifth Amendment in U.S. Constitutional
Law. In other words, Francis tells those who politely and with great
humility ask questions of him, “I don’t wanna answer and you
can’t make me. I’M Francis — I’m THE POPE — above
everyone and every law except God Himself — and even
there I make changes as I see fit — and God had better damn well
“I AM PETER!”
The litany is far too long and has been discussed ad nauseam
to no avail. Francis will do as he will, and change the Church,
and perhaps extinguish Catholicism, to accommodate his world
and worldly view.
IS WHAT WE CAN MAKE OF FRANCIS:
Francis is a madman
Francis may be possessed
Francis detests the Catholic Church of 2000 years
Francis well may be an atheist.
Do you laugh? His new “god of surprises” may surprise you
The Baying of Wolves
Oh … yes … one more lesson: if it hasn't occurred to you yet:
Vatican II was a psychedelic farce and the Woodstock
“bishops” are still feeding psilocybin mushrooms to the few seminarians
Many Catholics know the Holy Roman Catholic Church
that existed for 2000 years, and understand that is indispensible
to salvation: they know it as the now-despised Church
before the blasphemous Council of Vatican II — but
this is absolutely frightful: they cannot
find it, and do not know where it is or where it has gone.
It is no longer in Rome. It does not exist in their cities and towns.
There are half a dozen claimants to retaining the one, true, holy
Catholic Faith that the Second Vatican Council repudiated in favor
of the world. Which one is true? Are any true? And if not,
WHERE HAS HOLY MOTHER CHURCH GONE AND WHERE CAN WE FIND HER?
Christ is faithful unto the
consummation of time — but His Bride, the Church, is now altogether
Since Vatican II the Sheepfold has been torn down and its gates
are in ruins. The sheep are astray and cannot find their pasture.
They hear no voice they recognize 2 — only
the baying of wolves.
The Lesson to be Learned
Teach your children the true holy Catholic Faith — because
no one else will.
Even if it was never taught to you (and it probably was not),
learn it — teach it — and live it.
