[From "The Robber Pope"]
MORE AND MORE Catholics are coming to the inescapable realization that Jorge Bergoglio, aka “Pope” Francis, is — to use an old-fashioned, but indispensable word — a heretic.
Very few, however, have drawn the logical conclusions from this fact:
1. By divine law a public heretic cannot be pope.
2. The root of Francis’s heresies lies in the Vatican II Council, which is responsible for the less obvious but no less outrageous heresies of his immediate predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
3. Francis’s open contempt for Church teachings on sexual morality has pushed many Catholics over the edge and prompted these latest accusations of heresy, but equally egregious are Vatican II heresies on the nature of the Church, on religious liberty, on ecumenism, on the historical events of the Incarnation and more, of which all the Vatican II claimants to the papacy, not just Francis, are guilty.
Vatican II represented the triumph of the modernist heresy, dominated as it was by theologians who were, as the Louvain professor Jürgen Mettepennigen said, “inheritors of modernism.” The poisoned seeds of theological error were sown during the Council with all its yes/buts, existentialist blathering, equivocations, ambiguities, work-arounds, silences, poisoned neologisms, redefinitions, false equivalences, destroyed distinctions and the rest.
Bergoglio is nothing more than one more poisoned fruit from a thoroughly poisoned garden, and he has merely been applying the principles that Vatican II gave him.
Unfortunately due to slick marketing and the natural desire for peace, harmony and God’s love in a fallen world, quite a few innocently perceive a benevolent message in Bergoglio’s frequent outrages.
All this adds to the feeling that we are living through a bad sitcom. (Here’s his latest.) Francis drags the papacy through the mud. He does what a true pope can never do: He harms souls. Turn the TV off and think about what all this means. Your refusal to recognize him as pope matters.
