Francis the Pagan
by Thomas A. Droleskey
The pagans of yore, not having access to or belief in Divine Revelation, created "gods" out of their own imaginary conceptions, choosing to name the figments of their imaginations according to the attributes they believed that each possessed. This was done also even by barbaric tribes, many of which had rituals worshiping their ancestors and/or elements of nature, uniting themselves around some public, liturgical act of pietas that bound the tribe together.
Indeed, one of the reasons that over thirteen million Catholics were put to death from the time of Emperor Nero in the year 67 A.D. to the time of the Edict of Milan in the year 313 A.D. (although there was another period of "milder" persecution under Julian the Apostate, the last pagan Roman emperor, from 361 to 383. A.D.) was that they refused to demonstrate their obeisance to the the state-sponsored pagan religious cult by burning grains of incense to them and/or to eat meat that had been "offered" to them. Some emperors were willing to "tolerate" Catholics if they merely acknowledged the "legitimacy" of the the pagan "gods" alongside the true God of Divine Revelation while other emperors wanted them to renounce the Faith altogether, which is what the saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Lucy of Syracuse in Sicily simply refused to do.
If you think about it for a moment, something almost identical to this is happening both in the realm of the civil state, controlled by the practical pagans of Modernity, men and women who either reject the Faith altogether or who consider to be irrelevant to personal and social order, and in the realm of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, controlled by the practical pagans of Modernism.
Permit me a brief opportunity to explain.
Men such as President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, for instance, have created a false conception of "God" in order to justify their embrace of what are in the objective order of things one grave evil after another. Obama/Soetoro believes that his statist policies of confiscatory redistributionism are justified by his false understanding of the Gospel of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, believing as well, of course, that all religions are favored by "God" and thus must be embraced by the civil state. Although Obama/Soetoro's hapless members of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" reject his particular brand of statism, preferring to use their unconstitutional boondoggles called "earmarks" to reward their own constituency groups with monies pilfered from the national treasury, they are one with him in either reject the Faith outright or in considering it a matter of complete indifference to personal and social order.
In other words, both the "left" and the "right" are adherents of the practical paganism that is Judeo-Masonry, which asserts that the content of Divine Revelation is either unknown or can be discerned only with such difficulty as to be "reserved" to those who advance in various degrees of "secret knowledge"or "gnosis." These naturalists project a competing set of imaginary properties to the name of "God," something that Pope Pius XI warned about very specifically with respect to the Nazis in his encyclical letter Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937:
Beware, Venerable Brethren, of that
growing abuse, in speech as in writing, of the name of God as though it
were a meaningless label, to be affixed to any creation, more or less
arbitrary, of human speculation. Use your influence on the Faithful,
that they refuse to yield to this aberration. Our God is the
Personal God, supernatural, omnipotent, infinitely perfect, one in the
Trinity of Persons, tri-personal in the unity of divine essence, the
Creator of all existence. Lord, King and ultimate Consummator of the
history of the world, who will not, and cannot, tolerate a rival God by
No faith in God can for long survive pure
and unalloyed without the support of faith in Christ. "No one knoweth
who the Son is, but the Father: and who the Father is, but the Son and
to whom the Son will reveal Him" (Luke x. 22). "Now this is eternal
life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom
thou has sent" (John xvii. 3). Nobody, therefore, can say: "I believe in
God, and that is enough religion for me," for the Savior's words brook
no evasion: "Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He
that confesseth the Son hath the Father also" (1 John ii. 23) (Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)
In like manner, you see, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis also a practical pagan in the pattern of his immediate predecessor as the "Petrine Minister" of the counterfeit church of concilairism, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.
Why is this so?
Just be patient. I will explain it to you in an uncharacteristically, succinct and concise manner before elaborating upon the explanation at a bit a greater length.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is a practical pagan in that he says that he believes in the true God of Divine Revelation and the doctrines that He has entrusted to His true Church in the Sacred Deposit of Faith, which is composed of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, while he uses various rationalistic devices to project onto God and His Sacred Deposit of Faith his own imaginings of Who God is and what He meant to teach even though it has never been fully understood until now in the wake of the "Second" Vatican Council and the "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes." He is just as much a disciple of the Hegelian "new theologian" named Father Hans Urs von Balthasar as Ratzinger/Benedict.
Bergoglio/Francis really believes the Catholic Church's twenty general councils prior to the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, and the statements of our true popes on various matters, including the public pietas owed to Christ the King by the civil state, were mere "provisional dispensations" that must be viewed in light of what he claims is the impossibility for humans to express in language the varied aspects of dogmatic truth. Such "provisional dispensations" have been influenced, Bergoglio/Francis believes, by the historical circumstances in which they were made and must, therefore be reexamined in light of later developments and "scientific" inquiries.
Unlike his predecessor, however, Bergoglio/Francis does not feel any need to justify his heresy and has not thus far made any reference to Ratzinger/Benedict's "hermeneutic of continuity." He simply ignores everything about the perennial, immutable teaching of the Catholic Church that he does not "like."
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god does not want Catholics to seek with urgency the unconditional conversion of all non-Catholics to the maternal bosom of Holy Mother Church.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god does not condemn the commission of sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance by using the language of the Catholic Church, preferring, as noted yesterday in Overthrow Christ the King, Overthrow All Truth, Natural and Supernatural, to use naturalist language that can never prevail against the weight of sin in the world.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god forbids Catholics to discharge the Spiritual Works of Mercy, three of which are to admonish the sinner, to instruct the ignorant and to counsel the doubtful.
Mr. Bergoglio, for instance, would never use the following language to condemn those in public life who support the destruction of innocent human life in their mothers's wombs:
"Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the
duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend
the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose
lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom
we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And
if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their
laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of
others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent
blood which cried from earth to Heaven." (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1930.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god teaches that there is "universal salvation," that one need not belong to the Catholic Church to be saved.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that Catholic Church is not coextensive with the "Church of Christ."
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that Talmudism is a valid religion that please the true God of Divine Revelation that is worthy of respect and obeisance.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that the clergy of non-Catholic religions can sanctify their adherents and that they can give "blessings" to Catholics. Or have you forgotten about the following already?
Yes, that's the master
apostate of the Capuchin Fathers, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, who
specializes in the preaching of heresy to the heretics who have
pretended to sit on the Throne of Saint Peter, standing as then
"Cardinal" Bergoglio knelt to receive a "blessing" from the
Protestant televangelists. What kind of "blessings" can Protestants
give? Oh well, those that come from the devil.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes it is good and loving for "believers" to pray together.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that temples of false religions are sacred and must be treated as such.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that false religions have a right to propagate themselves openly in civil society.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes in religious liberty and separation of Church and State.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes in "simplicity" of worship so as to emphasize the "community of believers" exercising their own ministerial functions (see Francis The Jansenist).
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes in the United Nations and in global governance.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that "love," not doctrine, is all that matters.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god believes that those who support grave evils under cover of the civil law can serve in positions of trust and privilege in what is thought to be the Catholic Church:
Alisa Lapolt Snow, the Planned Parenthood lobbyist, who shocked the
nation with her defense of live birth abortions in front of a Florida
House committee, served on the board of Catholic Charities of Northwest
Here's what her bio on her website said:
Alisa is a graduate of the University of Tennessee where she earned a bachelor’s degree in communications/journalism. She was a founding member and secretary of the Sunset Rotary Club of Tallahassee and serves on the board of Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida-Tallahassee. She is a member of the Florida Association of Professional Lobbyists.
Because I don't take the word of people from Planned Parenthood on anything, I checked the website and she was not listed on their board of directors.
So I called the Catholic Charities office and they told me that Lapolt-Snow did indeed serve on the board until leaving in January. She didn't explain further.
How horrifying is that? A lobbyist for Planned Parenthood was a board member for a Catholic Charities office. I can't believe that it's not clear to everyone that you cannot advocate for the killing of babies and be a Catholic. Just can't. (Planned Parenthood Lobbyist Served on Board of Catholic Charities.)
Unfortunately for the poor blogger at the "Creative Minority Report," one cannot be a member of the Catholic Church while promoting doctrines that have been anathematized by Holy Mother Church from time immemorial.
One cannot be a member of the Catholic Church and engage in "inter-religious" prayer services.
Yet it is that Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god permits Catholics to do just those things, something that should be them to be apostates and outside the pale of the Catholic Church.
Who says so?
Well, let's cite Pope Leo XIII for just one proof of that statement:
The Church, founded on these principles and mindful
of her office, has done nothing with greater zeal and endeavour than she
has displayed in guarding the integrity of the faith. Hence she
regarded as rebels and expelled from the ranks of her children all who
held beliefs on any point of doctrine different from her own. The Arians, the Montanists, the Novatians, the Quartodecimans, the Eutychians, did not certainly reject all Catholic doctrine: they abandoned only a certain portion of it.
Still who does not know that they were declared heretics and banished
from the bosom of the Church? In like manner were condemned all authors
of heretical tenets who followed them in subsequent ages. "There
can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the
whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison,
infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by
Apostolic tradition" (Auctor Tract. de Fide Orthodoxa contra Arianos).
The practice of the Church has always been
the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were
wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church,
whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine
proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius,
Augustine, Theodore drew up a long list of the heresies of their
times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a
single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very
fact cut off from Catholic unity. "No one who merely disbelieves
in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a
Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other
heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one
holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic" (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88). (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
One just can't believe in things taught by Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god and remain a member of the Catholic Church.
Yet it is that many do so, starting with the "Petrine Minister" himself.
Here is an example from nine years ago that is even more egregious than the scandal in the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee:
It was nearly seven years ago that the courageous Stephen G. Brady, President of Roman Catholic Faithful, Inc., held a press conference in Springfield, Illinois, to demand the resignation of the Most Reverend Daniel Ryan, then the Ordinary of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. Brady accused Ryan of having sexually harassed and molested at least two of his priests. Subsequent investigations revealed Ryan's affinity for male prostitutes. Bishop Daniel Ryan stonewalled Brady and the few journalists who wanted to follow up on the allegations. Indeed, although he was forced into an early retirement in late 1999-and even though the diocese itself removed Ryan from active priestly ministry in late 2002, Ryan's communications director, Mrs. Kathie Sass, still stonewalls the media about Ryan's behavior and her own complicity in it by denouncing the allegations against Ryan as baseless and his accusers as misled, ignorant people. The Remnant will publish a retrospective on this notorious Bishop Ryan within a few months. [This writer is still waiting for Mrs. Sass to answer questions posed to her in February of 2003. She is as condemnatory now of Stephen Brady, who had the facts nailed cold from the outset, as she was in 1997. I know a thing or two or three about being condemned by those who have served as enablers of those who have been accused of inappropriate behavior even though the behavior as described in the words of witnesses is more than inappropriate. Just consider two of the articles that I wrote on the "Bishop" Daniel Leo Ryan matter: Roman Catholic Faithful Accuses Bishop Ryan of Sexual Harassment and More Witnesses Emerge in Bishop Ryan Case ]
Well, another Bishop Ryan, the Most Reverend Sylvester Ryan, the Bishop of Monterey, California, is apparently stonewalling a set of questions. These questions deal with Ryan's support for a measure, Proposition Q, that proposed to raise the sales tax by half a cent in Monterey County to support services provided by Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, California, to indigent patients. Overlooked in Bishop Sylvester Ryan's newspaper column urging Catholics to support Proposition Q was the fact that Natividad Medical Center dispenses contraceptives and kills innocent preborn babies. These are among the "services" provided to indigent patients there. Ryan's omission of these facts was the basis of an article, "Omissions of Fact Meant to Mislead the Faithful," that was published on the Seattle Catholic website in late December of 2003.
Information was provided to this writer from inside the Diocese of Monterey after that aforementioned article had been published that indicated the situation was even worse than I had known. Specifically, my informant told me that a Dr. Marc Tunzi, who heads a family practice residency program at Natividad Medical Center that evidently trains medical residents how to kill babies, serves on the Diocese of Monterey's "sexual abuse advisory panel." Membership on the panel is supposed to be secret. However, this particular bit of information was leaked to me in an effort to discover the truth.
An e-mail was sent to Dr. Tunzi on January 5, 2004. As I had not heard from him as of January 8, 2004, I sent him a second e-mail. That was followed up with a telephone call. He took the call, telling me that he had never received the January 5 e-mail. He was very terse with me, saying only that my information was "partly correct" and "partly grossly incorrect." He would not specify which part was correct and which was "grossly incorrect," noting that he had been told by the Diocese of Monterey to direct me to Mr. Kevin Drabinski, the diocesan Communications Director, who would answer my questions. I considered this odd as my first two questions had to do with Tunzi's own support for abortion and for the agenda of Planned Parenthood. Why would I need to ask anyone from the diocese about Tunzi's own positions?
Nevertheless, I contacted Mr. Drabinski via telephone on January 8, 2004, leaving him a voice message. That was followed up with an e-mail on January 9, 2004, including the questions listed below, and an e-mail on January 10, 2004, which corrected the source of a statement made by a medical resident about Natividad Medical Center's family practice residency program. The source was not Natividad's own website but one that analyzed such programs across the nation. I said that I needed to have an answer to my questions by Monday, January 12, 2004.
Mr. Drabinski telephoned me on Monday, January 12, 2004, asking for more time. He said that Bishop Ryan had just returned from a time away from the office. I told him that I could wait until Wednesday, January 14, 2004. He was thankful for my understanding.
Well, I waited until the early afternoon of January 15, 2004. No answer had been forthcoming from the Diocese of Monterey. Thus, another e-mail was sent that afternoon to Mr. Drabinski, informing him that I would have to assume that a lack of a response by the end of business that day meant that there was going to be no response at all. I informed him that the questions would thus be posted on The Remnant website as they had been presented to him, including the correction of the source of statement about Natividad Medical Center's residency program by a first year medical resident.
One question, dealing with an alleged payment made by the Diocese of Monterey in the case of a priest-predator, has been omitted from the questions below as it turned out the monies in question were paid by the Diocese of Tucson to victims of a Monsignor Robert Trupia there who had close ties to a Monsignor Charles Fatooh. Fatooh, who had known Trupia since the early 1970s, had been Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia for the Diocese of Monterey until it was discovered in early 2003 by the Arizona Star that Trupia, who had done "consulting" work for the Diocese of Monterey between 1995 and 2001, was living in a condominium in Maryland that he rented from Fatooh. However, as no monies were paid out by the Diocese of Monterey in this case, the question I posed to Mr. Drabinski is hereby omitted from the ones listed below.
A brief commentary on all of is provided at the end of the list of. These questions are being printed at present in light of their relevance to the recent commemoration of the thirty-first anniversary of the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Roe v. Wade. For it is indeed the case that the American slaughter of the unborn continues unabated in no small measure because many of the world's Catholic bishops have helped to aid and abet the careers of Catholics in public life who support and promote this crime that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.
Herewith are the questions, prefaced by my January 9, 2004, e-mail to Mr. Kevin Drabinksi:
Mr. Kevin Drabinski Director of Communications Diocese of Monterey Monterey, California
Dear Mr. Drabinski:
This e-mail is by way of following up on a telephone message I left with your office yesterday. I was told to contact you by Dr. Marc Tunzi, the head of the family practice residency program at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, California. As I have not heard from you as of this hour, 11:00 a.m., on Friday, January 9, 2004, I am composing this e-mail to pose a line of questions concerning the killing of innocent babies at Natividad Medical Center, Dr. Tunzi's involvement with same, the latter's association with the Diocese of Monterey, and Bishop Sylvester Ryan's efforts to oppose the American holocaust of the innocent unborn.
An initial e-mail was sent to Dr. Tunzi on Monday, January 5, 2004. As I had not heard back from him as of yesterday, January 8, 2004, I wrote him a second e-mail, following that up with a telephone call yesterday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time
In that telephone conversation, Dr. Tunzi said that my information was partly correct and partly "grossly incorrect." He told me to direct all questions to you in your capacity as Director of Communications for the Diocese of Monterey. As my first two questions dealt with Dr. Tunzi's obvious support for the killing of innocent human beings in their mothers' wombs, I do not see why those questions, which Dr. Tunzi did not answer in his terse e-mail to me of yesterday, January 8, 2004, are to be answered by you. It is because you have been designated as the one to answer those questions that this e-mail is being directed to you.
I need your response, therefore, to the following questions: [Question 1 was rephrased on January 10, 2004.]
1) Does Dr. Marc Tunzi, the head of the family practice residency program, either perform, supervise, or support the killing of innocent human beings in their mothers' wombs by means of abortion? The evidence is rather clear, as is discernible from a website describing Natividad Medical Center's family practice residency program.
[I provided Mr. Drabinski with the following comment, posted by first year resident in that program on August 19, 2002, who described the program Dr. Tunzi directs as follows: "I'm just starting out at this program, but they seem very open and supportive of giving TAb training to those who seek it out. D&C is built into the curriculum but those who want to do TAb have to look for it and can go through local Planned Parenthoods. But it is very easy to find FP doctors here who do them and are good at and like to train other FPs. I'm doing my first D&C tomorrow, and I'll keep this site posted as I go through my 3 years as to what it is like here in terms of abortion training." The abbreviation T A b refers to "therapeutic abortions."]
2) Does Dr. Marc Tunzi support the agenda of Planned Parenthood and/or have any contact with the officials of Planned Parenthood in the City of Salinas and Monterey County?
3) Based upon unimpeachable information that I have received from within the Diocese of Monterey, it appears as though Dr. Marc Tunzi serves on the Diocese of Monterey's "sexual abuse advisory panel." Although I understand that this information is supposed to be confidential, it has surfaced. As Leon Panetta, who was militantly pro-abortion during his years as a member of the United States House of Representatives and his tenure as Director of the Office of Management and Budget and White House Chief of Staff during the pro-abortion administration of President William Jefferson Clinton, serves on the American bishop's national advisory council, it is therefore quite plausible that a medical doctor who supports abortion would serve on Bishop Ryan's panel. Do you confirm or deny that Dr. Tunzi has been in the past, which is meant to include the time frame before and up to your receipt of this e-mail, and/or is now a member of the Diocese of Monterey's sexual abuse advisory panel?
Further questions deal with Bishop Ryan's support of Natividad Medical Center:
4) Bishop Sylvester Ryan wrote an article in the diocesan newspaper to urge Catholics in Monterey County to support a referendum seeking voting approval for a half cent county sales tax increase, the proceeds of which would benefit programs offered to the poor by Natividad Medical Center in Salinas. Bishop Ryan called this a matter of fundamental social justice. Why did not Bishop Ryan inform his readers that Natividad Medical Center dispenses contraceptive and kills babies, among the other "services" it provides to the poor and others?
5) Does Bishop Ryan believe that taxpayers should ignore the evils done at Natividad Medical Center? Why did not he inform voters that Natividad Medial Center received over $1 million in 1998 from the Reproductive Health Cartel?
6) Has Bishop Ryan ever publicly criticized Natividad Medical Center for its dispensing of contraceptives and its killing of the innocent unborn? Did he seek any assurances from Natividad Medical Center that the monies raised by the half-cent tax increase would not be used to dispense contraceptives or kill babies?
7) Has Bishop Ryan ever participated in or encouraged the prayerful recitation of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary outside of Natividad Medical Center to make reparation for the evils done there and to pray for the conversion of those who are committed to evil?
8) Has Bishop Ryan ever preached against the evils of contraceptive during his episcopal ministry as the Ordinary of the Diocese of Monterey?
9) Has Bishop Ryan ever participated in a prayer vigil outside of Planned Parenthood's headquarters or spoken or written against its agenda?
10) Are those who support contraception and abortion permitted to teach in the schools of the Diocese of Monterey?
11) What is Bishop Ryan's relationship, professional and personal, with Dr. Marc Tunzi?
12) Is Dr. Tunzi considered to be a Catholic in good standing despite his apparent complicity in the execution of innocent preborn human beings under cover of law?
13) Has Bishop Ryan ever warned, either publicly or privately, a pro-abortion Catholic politician within his jurisdiction that he is risking the salvation of his soul and that he should refrain from the reception of Holy Communion because he has placed himself outside of the Church by his public support for one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance?
14) Does the aforementioned Mr. Panetta, who hears Holy Mass at the Basilica of St. Charles Borromeo in Carmel, California, remain a Catholic in good standing in the Diocese of Monterey despite his unabashed support for the killing of the preborn under cover of law under various slogans?
15) Does Bishop Ryan agree with the actions taken by Bishop Raymond Leo Burke, the outgoing ordinary of the Diocese of La Crosse and the Archbishop-designated of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, to bar all pro-abortion Catholic public officials from the reception of Holy Communion?
Your prompt attention to these questions will be greatly appreciated. The answers to these questions will be published in The Remnant and online at the Seattle Catholic website. They will also be offered to the American Life League for publication on its website. If the questions remain unanswered, the questions will be published as I have posed them to you above with the notation that you or Bishop Ryan refused to answer them.
Looking forward to hearing from you, I am,
Sincerely yours in Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen,
Thomas A. Droleskey, Ph.D.
As of February 6, 2004, no response has been received from the Diocese of Monterey. This is not surprising, though. Bishop Ryan and his apparatchiks know that Rome will do nothing to them if it is indeed the case that Dr. Tunzi is an abortionist who has close ties to the diocese and serves on the diocesan "sexual abuse advisory board." Ryan knows that Rome will not rebuke him for his support of a hospital that kills babies by means of surgical abortion and chemically by means of contraceptives. Ryan knows that Rome will not chastise him for refusing to publicly warn an unapologetic defender of Roe v. Wade, Leon Panetta, and for holding his being considered a parishioner in good standing at the Basilica of Saint Charles Borromeo in Carmel, California. Ryan knows that the relationship between Monsignor Charles Fatooh and Monsignor Robert Trupia, to say nothing of the sums of money the Diocese of Monterey paid to Trupia for his "consulting" work after public allegations surfaced about him in the late 1990s, will never be investigated nor even mentioned to him by any curial official or the Holy Father when he makes his next ad limina apostolorum visit to the Holy See.
Thus, as I noted on this site in "Time for Plain Talk" nearly two years ago, the ultimate responsibility for these scandals and outrages rests with Pope John Paul II himself. Bad, irresponsible bishops know that the Holy Father is a prisoner of the collegiality he helped to promote at the Second Vatican Council and has praised during his pontificate. It took a veritable revolution on the part of committed lay people in France ten years ago to effect the ouster of a diocesan ordinary who openly supported the human pesticide, RU-486. The bishop was not removed until January of 1995. The novelty of episcopal collegiality, an outgrowth of the egalitarian spirit of the Protestant Revolt, has spread like a cancer, destroying the Faith, swallowing up souls, and emboldening those who in the hierarchy who are personally engaged in acts of unrepentant evil or who countenance the same in others.
The Holy See and the world's bishops never learn. Stonewalling reports of the sodomite crisis in the Church, which began to surface in The Wanderer in the 1980s and thereafter, did not prevent these scandals from festering and then exploding in the secular media, which relished the opportunity to attack the Church for a self-made crisis. The stonewalling by chancery officials in the wake of the complaints lodged by earnest parents and relatives of victims did much to alienate people from the practice of the true Faith. The hard-ball legal tactics used by diocesan attorneys and attorneys for insurance companies holding diocesan liability policies were meant to occlude the precepts of both charity and justice. Stonewalling has failed the Church over and over again. As long as the Pope himself, though, refuses to govern the Church and to discipline and remove bad bishops, the stonewalling of men like Bishop Sylvester Ryan and his minions will continue unabated.
While praying that men who believe that their arrogance for truth and their contempt of the binding nature of the Faith in all circumstances will repent into order to be ready for the moment of their own Particular Judgments, it is nevertheless true that those who persist in stonewalling to the point of their dying breath in this life will find it of no use in the next. (Stonewalling From Yet Another Bishop Ryan. This was written twenty-seven months before first writing on this site about the plausibility of sedevacantism. I had a lot to learn back in 2004. A whole lot. I am still learning.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "god" s a "god" of "tolerance" and diversity, of "understanding and "dialogue," of "compassion" and "love."
Jorge Mario Bergoglio's pagan god is none other than the devil himself:
For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens. (Psalm 95: 5)
The paganism of the likes of Modernists such as Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict and Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis has only emboldened that of the practical atheists in the civil state of modernity which he admires so much, atheists whose "god" is the belly and their glory is their shame.
Catholics do not project their own imaginings onto God. They submit without any shadow of dissent to the immutable teachings of the Catholic Church, including that of the Social Reign of Christ the King.
We should consider our privilege to run the risk of whatever calumnies may come our way for being steadfast in behalf of the cause of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen, offering to the Most Sacred Heart of Our King all of our sufferings and humiliations for reminding everyone, including the apostates in the counterfeit church of conciliarism who believe are the latter-day apostles of the heresy of Americanism, that He must rule over men and nations, making this offering to Him through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother.
Although the apostasies of the conciliar "Petrine Ministers" and their foot soldiers in the conciliar hierarchy and clergy are saddening and a cause for us to pray Rosaries of reparation to appease the Sacred Heart of Jesus by the offerings we make to this font Divine Mercy through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Easter joy is upon us in this season that began during Mass on Holy Saturday.. Our Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, has redeemed us on the wood of the Holy Cross by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood and He has risen from the dead and ascended to the His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal God the Father's right hand in Heaven. He has given us a spotless Blessed Mother to help us to get home to Heaven and a spotless Holy Mother Church to preserve His teaching inviolate until His Second Coming in glory at the end of time on the Last Day to judge the Living and the Dead.
We only need to be about the business of remaining faithful to Christ the King and to Mary our Immaculate Queen as we cleave to true bishops and true priests in the catacombs who make no concessions at all to conciliarism or the nonexistent legitimacy of its "shepherds" who support offenses against the Social Reign of Christ the King that have been devised by the devil and made manifest in the world as a result of the Protestant Revolt and the forces of Judeo-Masonry. May our zeal in promoting the Rights of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen help to make reparation for what we owe Our King for our sins as we renew every day our total consecration to Him through His Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart and pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
