What are we to Make of
Francis and Friends?
He has the audacity to contradict
Holy Scripture — the Word of God Himself … by
effectively abrogating the 6th of the 10 Commandments:
“Thou shalt not commit adultery.” (“except in certain
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 homosexuality.
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
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
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
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.
THIS 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
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
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 elusive.
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.
