By their Friends Shall Ye Know them: Mary Robinson, Friend of Francis, Champion of Abortion and Climate Change – The American Catholic

Mary Robinson, Friend of Francis, Champion of Abortion and Climate ChangePosted on Friday, November 10, AD 2017 by Bob Kurland, Ph.D.Mary Robinson, former president of that once Catholic country, Ireland, and champion of abortion rights and climate change alarmism, is featured in an article in “Vatican Radio”.     It’s interesting that Pope Francis, possibly following that non-Catholic principle, “The ends justify the means”, has held hands with many eminent folks who propose policies directly contrary to Catholic teaching.   Besides Mary Robinson, there is Hans Schellnhuber, German academic who advocates we do all to promote “Gaia” (sp?)–population control?  abortion? one-world control?, Sir Parth Dasgupta–a population control advocate, and who knows how many others. (See here.)  Why does the Church become involved in political issues of dubious validity?

The Vatican blocks the site accusing the Pope of “seven heresies”

The Ansa says that the web page that contains the text of the petition would not be accessible from computers within the Vatican walls.

“The access to the webpage you are trying to visit has been blocked in accordance with institutional security policies,” it would be a warning on the PCs of those inside the Holy See who tried to access the “correction” site, , writes the press agency . At this time, therefore, no one inside the Vatican could connect to .

In the letter, dozens of priests and lay people called on the Pope to correct seven positions “backed up” in post-synodal apostolic exorcism by Amoris Laetitia and “through other words, acts and omissions associated with it”, labeled by the extensors of the document as “heretics” . Alleged positions that are not in line with the Catholic magisterium, according to the signatories, concern ” marriage , moral life, and the reception of the sacraments.” And Pope Francis, it is said in Correctio Filialis , would “cause the spread of these heretical opinions in the Catholic Church.”

The main object of the contention, in short, would be the statements contained in the Ariesis Laetitia regarding access to communion for divorced and repatriated persons who live more together . The same were the five “doubts” that were presented to the Pope by the Cardinals Charles Caffarra, Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke and Joachim Meisner. Through these assertions, the document reads in the summary of the document , the Pope would have allowed “directly or indirectly,” that it was believed that obedience to the Law of God could be impossible or undesirable and that the Church should sometimes accept adultery as compatible with being Catholic practitioners. “

Not only that, in the text, the signatories attribute the current crisis in the Church to ” modernism “, which theologically “argues that God has not delivered truths to the Church,” and “the apparent influence of Martin Luther’s ideas on Pope Francis “, In particular on” marriage, divorce, forgiveness and divine law “.

“Branch Correction” comes from dozens of members of the traditionalist universe. Among them are some famous names such as the one of the former President of the Ior, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi , the Superior of the Fraternity San Pio X , the Lefebvriano Bernard Fellay, by Monsignor Antonio Livi , illustrious theologian, historian and vice president of CNR, Roberto De Mattei and President of the American Catholic Lawyers’ Association, Christopher Ferrara .

No cardinal, however, chose to affix his signature at the foot of the document, although in the past Cardinal Burke had suggested the possibility of presenting a “formal correction” to Pope Francis if the Holy Father did not respond to the “doubt” on Auritis Laetitia.

The purpose of the correction, however, explained yesterday Gotti Tedeschi at La Stampa , is not to “give the Eyewitness to the Pope”, but to safeguard the “good of the Church” and of the Pope itself.

Is the Pope Catholic?

George Neumayr’s new book is worth buying and reading.

Barnhardt | The Antipope and the Sodomites: Barnhardt CMR Interview Part 4

I have updated/corrected this to refer to Bergoglio as Antipopegiven my position on the matter.  The original at CMR is HERE. I have not changed Pat’s words, as I don’t want to put words in his mouth.  I have only updated my portion of the text, and even then, tried to change as little as possible.

Pat Archbold: This is Part IV of my ongoing interview with Ann Barnhardt. In this part we will talk about the Pope. Now I am warning you, Ann uses very strident language to which readers of CMR are probably unaccustomed. Look, I know how Ann makes her points and I asked the questions. I appreciate her candor and intellect even if I don’t always share her style. Bottom line, if you don’t like strong language and insults, don’t read it. I don’t want to hear any complaints about her style. Disagree, fine. But if you complain about style or language choices, your comment will likely be deleted.

It is my choice alone to publish it here.

So let’s get to it.

PA: I will admit that this papacy is a continuing source of frustration for me. Pope Francis has so much to say about myriad minutiae, that his silence in the aftermath of the Irish referendum and SCOTUS decision on sodomite “marriage” seems deafening. It should be obvious to everyone, including the Pope, that this issue is the tip of the spear that will justify all manner of Christian oppression in the west, but the Pope says nothing. The defenders of the Pope’s leadership will cherry pick a statement here and there as proof that the Pope believes strongly on this issue. But the lack of leadership on this crucial topic at this crucial moment is devastating, moreover with the damage done by the “who am I to judge?” fiasco, it is even more incumbent upon him to lead on this issue. What should the Pope be doing on this issue and why isn’t he doing it?

Ann Barnhardt: What should the Vicar of Jesus Christ be doing? Um, practicing, teaching and preaching Catholicism. That would be a good start. He should be offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Gregorian Rite at the Papal Altar of St. Peter’s basilica, directly above the tomb of St. Peter himself, every single day, begging our Crucified Savior there upon the altar, with copious tears, to have mercy on and to cleanse His Holy Church and the whole world. This should be broadcast/live-streamed and made available to watch on the Vatican’s website and whoever else wants to carry it, with closed captions in Latin above the various vernacular languages. The Pope should likewise celebrate Solemn Benediction every day, and recite the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, again in reparation for the horrific sins of the world – and not nonsense fake Marxist sins like “wasting food” or “using air conditioning”. No, actual real sins like sacrilege, sodomy, abortion, concubinage, and coveting and stealing other people’s private property and wealth, most especially by governments. Then the Holy Father should lead the world in praying the Most Holy Rosary – all 15 mysteries (You heard me. Fifteen. There are exactly FIFTEEN mysteries.), in Latin, for the crushing of and in reparation for the heresy of Modernism. He should conclude this daily rosary by reciting himself the Oath Against Modernism. Every. Single. Day. Once he gets that squared away, then we can start on formulating a plan for broadcasting him publicly praying the Liturgy of the Hours. The Liturgy of the HOURS. In Latin. Not the Liturgy of the Minutes in some barbarous tongue….

Oh, and there is also that minor matter of the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary….

Why won’t Antipope Bergoglio speak out about these grave sins? Let’s start with abortion. Antipope Francis had made it abundantly clear to all but the most pathetic of Pollyanna papoloters that he is a Marxist and thus a materialist. EVERYTHING he says is framed in a material context, including the wholesale of slaughter of pre-born children, which he has repeatedly characterized as a symptom of a “throwaway culture”. Because, you know, murdering babies is just one step up from not recycling. Further, he was reported as having said in an interview he granted to his favorite newspaper, the only newspaper he claims to read, La Repubblica, by his favorite journalist Eugenio Scalfari, an atheist Freemason, that the souls that do not achieve the Beatific Vision are “annihilated” and “there is no punishment”.

By Antipope Francis’ words, and the deafening roar of his silence, we can clearly discern that he doesn’t seem to think that abortion is really that much of a problem. Like so many others in the post-Christian, post-modern culture, the justification for abortion is that it is better for a child to be aborted, and thus its soul annihilated, than for it to be born and live life on earth in poverty. Which is so odd, because he is constantly telling us that the poor are superior beings that we should kneel before and venerate, and that God loves and is “closer” to the materially poor – not the poor in spirit, but the MATERIALLY poor – more than everyone else. Huh. It’s enough to make a person think that Antipope Francis maybe has an intellect rivaled only by garden tools.

Now to the question of sodomy. And let’s just cut to the chase and put forth the question that everyone is asking: Is Antipope Francis himself a sodomite? While it would explain much, I doubt it seriously. I don’t think he’s a fag. I think what he almost certainly is is a sociopath. Sociopaths are all about “winning the game” and imposing their will on others. For some sociopaths the “points” in the game include money and sex. Bill Clinton, Jon Corzine, Jim Jones and Marcial Maciel leap to mind. But all sociopaths share the common pathology of the lust of power and the desire to impose their will on others. For some, like Antipope Francis I strongly suspect, the “points” are in the form of wielding power within a political environment, which is how he views the Church and the curia – as a purely political organization. He gins up massive personal popularity with the full, giddy cooperation of the Freemasonic global media juggernaut, by ratifying and confirming people in their sins, most especially their sins against the Sixth Commandment, preaching a false gospel of moral laxity and permissiveness as “mercy”, religious indifferentism as “tolerance” and “ecumenism”, and personal indifference as “charity”. But, who am I to judge.

Now to the sodomites. The Vatican is CRAWLING with sodomites, and gurl, in the AntipopeFrancis era those nasty old queens are struttin’ like RuPaul late to a lipgloss giveaway at Sephora. Antipope Francis, being a politicking sociopath, formed an alliance with the Lavender mafia immediately because he knew that they were powerful, had numerous common goals and sympathies, including a visceral hatred of the Mass of the Ages, and that he needed them in order to push through his evil, populist agenda revolving around Sixth Commandment issues and Marxism. We knew for a metaphysical certitude that the Lavender Mafia was ascendant when Antipope Francis named the notorious, openly disgraced and may I say, utterly repellant old queen, Monsignor Battista Ricca to run not only the Antipope’s residence, but also the Vatican Bank. Ricca was shipped out of Montevideo, Uruguay, just across the water from Buenos Aires, in 2000 for being a promiscuous fag, carrying on an affair with a former Swiss Guard officer, getting the crap beaten out of himself while trolling gay cruising areas, and finally, getting caught in an elevator with a boy prostitute. Monsignor Ricca apparently lives by the credo, “Go big or go home.” When Antipope Francis installed and fully “rehabilitated” Ricca in the summer of 2013, everyone with two brain cells to rub together knew that the sodomite problem in the Church would not only not be addressed, but would get markedly worse under Antipope Francis, no pun intended.

While probably not a sodomite himself, Antipope Francis, being a few dilithium crystals short of a warp core, is also probably quite susceptible to flattery, and thus doesn’t mind the fags he surrounds himself with, because they are probably amusing and charming at table, and tell Antipope Francis how FABULOUS and BRILLIANT he is. Sodomite men, especially, tend to be shameless flatterers, which is why your 80 year-old aunt just LOVES her super-cute fag hairdresser and can’t understand why the mean old Church says that he and his anal sex partner/victim can’t get “married” and adopt pet children. (For me, it was my RCIA sponsor, not my aunt.) All because the fags tell their hags how GORGEOUS their outfit is… and then ruthlessly mock her as soon as she is out of earshot. Think of Antipope Francis, the fag hag par excellence, sitting at Casa Santa Marta for his well-watered lunch with Monsignor Ricca dressed in a pale-pink argyle sweater, and a host of other desperately amusing fags in the Antony Blanche mold…

“M-m-m-my Dear, Laudato Th-th-th-thi is simply d-d-d-d-divine. You m-m-m-musth be the th-th-thmartesth pope ever, D-d-d-dear. Now about that cr-cr-cruel, th-th-thrict Thwith Guard commandant Anrig, D-d-dahling. He thimply doesn’t underhand that we have … needths, my D-d-d-dear. We take the call to ac-c-c-ompany the thinner b-b-b-ody to b-b-b-ody quite th-th-theriously, m-m-my D-d-d-ear. (Peals of squealing laughter…)

To Antipope Francis, it seems, it is all a political game which he intends to “win” by any means necessary. And the sodomites are probably his most important and powerful mercenary army. And make no mistake, they are kicking our ass up one side and back down the other. Or, as someone else has so forthrightly put it, the Bride of Christ is Being Raped.

World Youth Day in the ‘Capital of Mercy’ | Daily News |


– USCCB Instagram

St. John Paul II banner in Krakow, Poland.

KRAKOW, Poland — “Krakow is the capital of mercy,” said Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz. “From here, as Sister Faustina wrote, a spark will emerge, the spark of Divine Mercy, and this spark will contribute to the deepening of religious life in the world.”

The archbishop of Krakow was speaking to EWTN Germany July 21, ahead of World Youth Day, which runs July 26-31 in and around the Polish city. The archbishop said he hopes the young people who attend “will entrust themselves to the message of Divine Mercy and take that spark to all nations.”

Organizers for the event, which contains the theme “Blessed Are the Merciful, for They Shall Obtain Mercy,” said that, by July 22, 364,729 individual pilgrims from 187 countries had registered for the celebration. The largest number, with more than 172,000 registered pilgrims, are coming from Poland. There were even 22 pilgrims making the trip from war-torn Syria. Approximately 30,000 pilgrims have registered from the United States, more than to any World Youth Day in the past. In addition, according to the official Twitter account for World Youth Day in English, in attendance there will be 844 bishops and 47 cardinals from 107 countries.

“The event is aimed at encouraging pilgrims to rediscover their faith and then to share it with those coming to Poland,” said Dorota Abdelmoula, spokeswoman for WYD Krakow. “It’ll also be a time for them to discover their faith and roots, also because we’re celebrating the 1,050th anniversary of the birth [baptism] of Poland.”

Cardinal Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) and Prophecy in 1976

Presently, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is meeting in Baltimore (thanks, KFD). Timothy Cardinal Dolan, outgoing President of the USCCB, on behalf of the Conference, welcomed Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Apostolic Nuncio (essentially, the Holy Father’s “ambassador” to the U.S.), to deliver an address to the assembly yesterday evening. You can read the full text of Archbishop Vigano’s address here. It’s interesting.


John Paul I and Cardinal Wojtyla, 1978

There’s a quote in the Nuncio’s address that caught my attention, given by Cardinal Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) in an address during the Eucharistic Congress in 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He said:

“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously…”

That was nearly forty years ago. We can continue to pretend that the world isn’t afflicted by something…. very dark…. We can continue to believe that the instant times are notdifferent than times before…. but JPII makes our denials seem all the more…. ridiculous.

We must become like barnacles and firmly attach ourselves to the Rock, lest we get swept away by rising tides. Jesus says that the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Rock. He doesn’t say that all Christians will be saved. So long as we are the Rock, and the Rock is us, we are safe!

Patrick Buchanan: Papal Neutrality In The Culture War? – OpEd

Patrick Buchanan: Papal Neutrality In The Culture War? – OpEd


By Patrick J Buchanan — (November 14, 2013)

“Pope Francis doesn’t want cultural warriors; he doesn’t want ideologues,” said Bishop Blase Cupich of Spokane, Wash.:

“The nuncio said the Holy Father wants bishops with pastoral sensitivity, shepherds who know the smell of the sheep.”

Bishop Cupich was conveying instructions the papal nuncio had delivered from Rome to guide U.S. bishops in choosing a new leader.

They chose Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Ky., who has a master’s degree in social work, to succeed Archbishop Timothy Dolan whom Laurie Goodstein of the New York Times describes thus:

“[A] garrulous evangelist comfortable in front of a camera, [who] led the bishops in their high-profile confrontation with the Obama administration over a provision in the health care mandate that requires most employers to have insurance that covers contraceptives for employees.”

That mandate also requires employers to cover abortion-inducing drugs and sterilizations.

Yet here is further confirmation His Holiness seeks to move the Catholic Church to a stance of non-belligerence, if not neutrality, in the culture war for the soul of the West.

There is a small problem with neutrality. As Trotsky observed, “You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.” For the church to absent itself from the culture war is to not to end that war, but to lose it.

What would that entail? Can we not already see?

In America, the family has disintegrated. Forty percent of working-class white children are born out of wedlock, as are 53 percent of Hispanic children, and 73 percent of black children. Kids from broken homes are many times more likely to drop out of school, take drugs, join gangs, commit crimes, end up in prison, lose their souls, and produce yet another generation of lost souls.

Goodstein quotes the Holy Father as listing among the “most serious of the evils” today “youth unemployment.” And he calls upon Catholics not to be “obsessed” with abortion or same-sex marriage.

But is teenage unemployment really a graver moral evil than the slaughter of 3,500 unborn every day in a land we used to call “God’s Country”?

Papal encyclicals like Rerum Novarum and Quadragesimo Anno have much to teach about social justice in an industrial society.

But what is the special expertise of the church in coping with teenage unemployment? Has the Curia done good scholarly work on the economic impact of the minimum wage?

The cultural revolution preached by Marxist Antonio Gramsci is continuing its “long march” through the institutions of the West and succeeding where the violent revolutions of Lenin and Mao failed.

It is effecting a transvaluation of all values. And it is not interested in a truce with the church of Pope Francis, but a triumph over that church which it reviles as the great enemy in its struggle.

Indeed, after decades of culture war waged against Christianity, the Vatican might consider the state of the Faith.

Our civilization is being de-Christianized. Popular culture is a running sewer. Promiscuity and pornography are pandemic. In Europe, the churches empty out as the mosques fill up. In America, Bible reading and prayer are outlawed in schools, as Christian displays are purged from public squares. Officially, Christmas and Easter do not exist.

The pope, says Goodstein, refers to proselytizing as “solemn nonsense.” But to proselytize is to convert nonbelievers.

And when Christ admonished his apostles, “Go forth and teach all nations,” and ten of his twelve were martyred doing so, were they not engaged in the Church’s true commission — to bring souls to Christ.

Pope Francis comes out of the Jesuits.

Hence, one wonders: Did those legendary Jesuits like St. Isaac Jogues and the North American Martyrs make a mistake proselytizing and baptizing, when they could have been working on youth unemployment among the Mohawks?

An Italian atheist quotes the pope as saying, “Everyone has his own idea of good and evil,” and everyone should “follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them.”

Does this not reflect the moral relativism of Prince Hamlet when he said to Rosencrantz, “there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so?” Yet, is it not the church’s mission to differentiate good and evil and condemn the latter?

“Who am I to judge,” Pope Francis says of homosexuals.

Well, he is pope. And even the lowliest parish priest has to deliver moral judgments in a confessional.

“[S]ince he became pope,” writes Goodstein, Francis’ “approval numbers are skyrocketing. Even atheists are applauding.”

Especially the atheists, one imagines.

While Pope Francis has not altered any Catholic doctrines in his interviews and disquisitions, he is sowing seeds of confusion among the faithful, a high price to pay, even for “skyrocketing” poll numbers.

If memory serves, the Lord said, “Feed my sheep,” not “get the smell of the sheep.” And he did not mean soup kitchens, but more importantly the spiritual food essential for eternal life.

But then those were different Jesuits. And that was long ago.

Dietrich von Hildebrand on Pope Francis

Dietrich von Hildebrand on Pope Francis

by Joseph Shaw

Rorate Caeli

Readers of my blog (Part 1Part 2, and Part 3) will know that I’ve been trying to get to grips with what Pope Francis has been saying, and how Catholics attached to the Church’s traditions can best respond to it. We need both a conceptual and a rhetorical framework for responding to a critique which is coming from an unexpected direction.Unexpected, but not unprecedented. We have, in fact, been here before, and I was very struck by the relevance of a chapter in Dietrich von Hildebrand‘s book Trojan Horse in the City of God. This was published in 1967 (I have the slightly revised 1993 edition), with a Foreword by John, Cardinal O’Connor. I offer an extended quotation here; I’ve had the whole chapter (10 pages of the book) retyped and you can download it here. I think Pope Francis would like it too.Hildebrand was one of the founders of the Traditional movement, and specifically of the Roman Forum, directed by Dr John Rao, which continues the work of education he thought so important. They are currently appealing for funds; go over there and have a look.—————————————
