‘Help the homos!’...

Ousted Vatican Sodomite Prelate appeals to Francis


Photo Credit: Artykuł Osiemnasty via

What do you know — the self-confessed proud-and-practicing Sodomite “Monsignor” Krzystof Charamsa, having been ousted by the Vatican from his positions in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith [sic] and at “Pontifical” Universities, has now publicly appealed to “Pope” Francis to help the cause of homosexuals and other aberrant “-sexuals”.

The following was reported by the Austrian Novus Ordo press agency kathpress:

Vatican prelate Krzystof Charamsa, suspended for his [public] confession of being a [practicing] homosexual, has appealed to the Pope for help. He wrote a letter to Francis in which he asked him to “open the hearts of the bishops” at the world synod on the family, Charamsa said on Thursday [Oct. 8, 2015] according to the Spanish newspaper “ABC”. During the synod, the bishops should think “of all the families”, said Charamsa; minorities ought not to remain excluded. The Catholic Church also needs to accept homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals. “We are good people and defend family values”, the former Vatican employee said.

This past weekend, Charamsa had come out [as a homosexual] in interviews in Italian and Polish media as well as at a press conference in Rome together with his Catalan partner. The Vatican dismissed the cleric from his post in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and withdrew his teaching authorization for pontifical universities.

(“Charamsa bittet Papst nach Homosexuellen-Outing um Hilfe”,, Oct. 8, 2015; translation: Novus Ordo Watch)

The original Spanish article in ABC can be accessed here.

For background on Charamsa, his unnatural lover, and the Vatican’s reaction, please see our report from a few days ago:

Remember that although the Vatican promptly fired Charamsa, they didn’t fire him for the scandal of being a public and unrepentant Sodomite — they fired him for calling a press conference right before the Synod. The rest, Vatican press secretary Federico Lombardi said, was deserving of “respect”, as shown in the above-linked report. Go figure.

Will Francis help the Polish Sodomite? No, of course not — that would be too much, too fast for Bergoglio. But clearly Charamsa knows to whom to go for help, and he is obviously quite comfortable doing so in public. Why is that? It is because Francis, while speaking confusedly out of both sides of his mouth, signals with his actions exactly where he stands, as our numerous reports on Francis’ sexual scandals have confirmed again and again — see links below.


“Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Is 5:20).

“Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God” (1 Cor 6:9-10).

The Curious Handshakes of “Pope” Francis


The future “Pope” Francis, right, shakes hands with Benedict XVI

There comes a point when circumstantial evidence has become so overwhelming in terms of quantity and quality that only a fool would deny the reality it points to. Jorge Bergoglio — the apostate Argentinian layman pulling off the “Pope Francis” Show in the Vatican — not only talks like a Mason, acts like a Mason, and teaches the doctrines of Freemasonry, he also shakes hands like one. 

The video below gives some pretty clear evidence. Take a look:

But let’s avoid all misunderstanding: We are not saying that Francis is a Freemason simply because of handshakes. Oh no — he is a Freemason (whether an actual member or “only” in adherence to their doctrines) because practically everything he says and does is perfectly in line with Masonry, if not in every detail, certainly in essence. The handshakes are merely the icing on the cake — confirming what anyone with eyes to see can discover is really in plain sight:

In his Masonry, Francis follows in the tradition of his impostor-pope predecessors, including Joseph Ratzinger, often erroneously hailed as a Catholic traditionalist. Take a look at the The Curious Handshakes of Benedict XVI for clear confirmation of this.

Vatican Prelate at CDF comes out as being in a Homosexual Relationship as News breaks Francis had met with Sodomite Couple in United States

[UPDATED 03-OCT-2015 18:40 UTC]

News is pouring in faster than we’re able to produce quality blog posts!

Just as we were preparing to publish a post on the Vatican’s downplaying of Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis, which had just been overshadowed by the revelation that Francis had received in audience a homosexual couple while in the United States (details further down below), this morning news broke that a high-ranking prelate in the Vatican’s so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) — the Novus Ordo version of the Holy Office — has publicly admitted to being in a sodomite relationship and being “proud” of it!

The man in question is “Father” Krysztof Olaf Charamsa, who announces his attachment to aberrant sexual practices in the video below (Polish):

It appears that the conservative Novus Ordo portal Polonia Christiana first broke this story, which was then immediately picked up and rendered in English by the Vox Cantoris blog, upon which we rely for this report.

Charamsa declared: “I am a gay priest. I am a happy and proud gay priest. My joy and freedom is dedicated to a man whom I love, Eduard, my boyfriend, who is able to bring out my best energies and also convert the remnant of fear on the strength of love” (see “Sodomite Priest buried in the Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith”, Vox Cantoris, Oct. 2, 2015).

In addition to his public confession, the unrepentant sodomite also issued 10 “demands” he has on the Novus Ordo Sect (his “Liberation Manifesto”) with regard to his depraved desires:

1. Disposal of homophobia and anti-gay discrimination

We demand that the Catholic Church divest itself of activities, the mentality and language of homophobia, hate speech, humiliation and depreciating, marginalization, stigmatization and rejection of LGBT people. We demand the cessation of the Church of discrimination and soft persecution of these people so within it as well as beyond its borders.

2. Condemnation [of] punishment for homosexuality

We demand that the Church unequivocally speak out against punishment for sexual orientation and against the death penalty or imprisonment, against any acts of cruelty against any discrimination against people based on sexual orientation, as well as against attempts to undergo "reorganizational therapies" of persons belonging to sexual minorities.

3. Abandonment by the Church to interfere in guaranteeing human rights by democratic states

We demand that the Church revise its past behavior to states and nations which, through democratic development of civilization seek to guarantee human rights, including the right to love and to civil marriage, persons belonging to sexual minorities . Civilized countries should respect their autonomy for the sake of the common good of all, not just Catholics.

4. Canceling incompetent and prejudicial documents

We demand from the pope revise the catechism and appeal all the documents, cruel and incompetent regarding homosexual persons who are the object of the Church's compassion and stigmatization. In particular, the documents of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the heir to the Holy Inquisition. Not acceptable documents are: 

a) the declaration "Persona Humana" from 1975, saying among others about "pathological constitution" of homosexual persons, which by their nature are supposedly "difficult to adjust socially" and carry the "anomaly" that "without the necessary and significant order" is "depravity”; 

b) "Letter on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons" of 1986, which calls for "compassion" for homosexuals, "sufferers", accepts the existence of a "fair discrimination" homosexuals, and rejects only the "unjust discrimination”; 

c) outrageous "considerations concerning the response to legislative proposals on the non-discrimination of homosexual persons" in 1992; 

d) “Considerations Regarding Proposals to legalize Unions Between Homosexual Persons” from 2003, according to which homosexuality is" devoid of any genuine affective, "and homosexual relationships are devoid of" human and ordered form of sexual relations;

e) “Catechism of the Church Catholic”, points 2357-2359, teaches that not only works, but also homosexual orientation is “objectively disordered”. He also emphasizes that the nature of homosexual people, there is no emotional complementarity with other human persons that they love. And he adds that for most of us orientation is difficult experience requires compassion neighbor, but not without a just avoiding discrimination. How does he know what is our suffering and difficulty? Well, it is not sexual orientation, but homophobia of the Church. Learning by catechism is offensive, apart from the fact that the very definition of homosexuality is deficient, if at all not quite false. Cheaper is also analysis of the situation of homosexual persons.

5. Immediate cancellation of discriminatory instructions about avoiding the priesthood of homosexual persons

We demand that the pope immediately abolished regrettable instructions about avoiding the ordination of homosexuals, endorsed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2005.                                

6. Initiate a serious scientific reflection interdisciplinary over the morality of human sexuality                                                                         

We demand that the Church initiate a serious and objective scientific reflection on sexual morality, taking note of the development - which so far sees as ideologically - science and reproductive health services, medical, psychological, psychiatric, biological, sociological, anthropological, Gender studies etc.

7. Revision of the interpretation of biblical texts on homosexuality.

We demand that the Church has treated seriously question their own interpretation of the Bible, freeing themselves from fundamentalism, spotting letters when they talk about homosexual people, they never condemning, and kontekstualizując biblical texts that address homogenital acts.

8. Adoption of ecumenical dialogue with our brothers Lutherans and Anglicans about homosexuality

We demand that the Church has taken a serious ecumenical dialogue on the issue of homosexuality with Christians, Protestants and Anglicans who, in an open and transparent process of maturation have developed their own beliefs on this subject, which may help the Catholic Church understand the reality.

9. The need to ask for forgiveness wines past and present church toward homosexuals

We demand that the Church went the way of request for pardon him wine age, neglect and silence, persecution and crimes against homosexuals and to cease committing similar acts from now.

10. Respect for believers, homosexuals and change distorted position of the Church on the issue of how it should look like their Christian life

We demand that the Church finally open up to believing homosexuals, for baptized persons belonging to sexual minorities who do not have the right to propose a total disposing of love and resignation with a healthy sex life, which expresses their nature and in accordance with their sexual orientation.

(“Sodomite Priest buried in the Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith”Vox Cantoris, Oct. 2, 2015; Polish original here.)

So, such is the “theology” and “spirituality” of a person who made it all the way into the Vatican’s congregation of ensuring orthodoxy — very interesting! Reminds one of the Dominican Modernist Yves Congar (later made “cardinal” by John Paul II), who reportedly urinated at the walls of the Holy Office to express his displeasure at Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani.

As far as Charamsa goes, of course not even Francis would ever accede to these demands, which means that the spinmeisters at Church Militant and beyond are getting another chance at portraying Francis as a super-conservative “Catholic” hero who fiercely denounces homosexuality and opposes “gay marriage”. This will give them an excellent excuse to completely ignore the other story that just broke, namely, that in the United States Francis had met with a homosexual couple and warmly embraced them, as seen in the video below:

The cordial meeting between Francis and the two sodomites had been arranged by Francis himself, according to Yayo Grassi, who had had Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (now “Pope” Francis) for a teacher in the mid-1960s at a high school in Argentina. Grassi brought his “boyfriend” Iwan to meet Francis, who was well aware of his disordered sexuality but had “never been judgmental…, never said anything negative”, according to Grassi.

Here are some news stories on the meeting between Francis and the two homosexuals:

You can bet your bottom dollar that you will never see this on Church Militant, for which reason we call them Church Disneyland — it is fantasy dressed up as news.


Back to the Charamsa case. The Vatican reacted promptly, and, of course, had no other choice but to fire the man. An official statement issued October 3 says: 

With regard to the declarations and interview given by Msgr. Krzystof Charamsa it should be observed that, notwithstanding the respect due to the events and personal situations, and reflections on the issue, the decision to make such a pointed statement on the eve of the opening of the Synod appears very serious and irresponsible, since it aims to subject the Synod assembly to undue media pressure. Msgr. Charamsa will certainly be unable to continue to carry out his previous work in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Pontifical universities, while the other aspects of his situation shall remain the competence of his diocesan Ordinary.

(Statement by “Fr.” Lombardi regarding the Declaration of “Mgr.” Charamsa,, Oct. 3, 2015)

It’s anyone’s guess as to what Lombardi may mean by “respect” that is supposedly owed to “the events and personal situations” and “reflections” on this, and we’d hate to speculate. But Rorate Caeli hits the nail on the head in the following comment:

According to the pope’s spokesman [Lombardi], this priest being an active homosexual [is] not what got him fired from his numerous posts. No, that merits “respect,” according to the Vatican. The only reason they fired him is because he held a press conference before the start of the Synod of Sex which would put the Synod fathers through “undue media pressure.”

(“For the record: High-ranking Vatican official ‘in a gay relationship’”, Rorate Caeli, Oct. 3, 2015)

This is rather telling, is it not? Here are some more stories covering this scandal, with additional information:

The Italian Corriere della Sera has now also released a video clip of the press conference given by “Mgr.” Charamsa, in which he introduces his boyfriend:

As Mr. Lombardi said in his official statement, he conveniently leaves it to the local “bishop” to take action against Charamsa with regard to those “other aspects”. Well, this has now happened — sort of. The diocese of Pelplin, into which Charamsa is incardinated, released the following ridiculous statement:

Statement about the Case of Msgr. Krzysztof Charamsa

Pursuant to the message of the Press Office of the Holy See concerning the declaration of Fr. Charamsa and his media statements, contrary to Scripture, to the teaching of the Catholic Church, and to the standards of the Code of Canon Law, the Bishop of Pelplin has admonished Fr. Krzysztof Charamsa to return to the way of Christ’s priesthood.

At the same time the Bishop of Pelplin asks priests and faithful to pray for this intention.

Fr. Ireneusz Smagliński STD
Spokesman for the Bishop of Pelplin

(Source here in Polish)

So that’s it. He is not suspended, he is not interdicted, he is not excommunciated, he is not anything except being “admonished” to abandon his wickedness. We can probably be grateful that at least he was “admonished” and not merely “encouraged” or “invited” to leave his sinful ways. The “bishop” in question, by the way, is Ryszard Kasyna. Could you imagine what Saint Pius X would have done if he had been in charge of such a man, even as a simple bishop?!


Charamsa and his depraved lover on October 3, 2015

In 2013, Francis had mockingly declared that he wouldn’t know who in the Vatican is part of the infamous ‘gay lobby’ (remember the dossier that preceded Benedict XVI’s resignation?)
since the word “gay” isn’t printed on any Vatican ID cards. Ha ha — oh, if it were only a laughing matter! But in any case, with regard to Mr. Charamsa, it seems that question is definitively resolved.

This is most likely merely the beginning of what promises to be a very explosive next few weeks. Will the schism we have predicted now ensue?

Time will tell.

The Novus Ordo Religion at work...

The Sacred and the Profane:
Trashing God’s House in France


If there’s one thing the Modernist Novus Ordo Sect is good at, it’s profaning that which is holy. In the original (long version) of the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel composed by Pope Leo XIII, the Sovereign Pontiff speaks of “most crafty enemies” of the Church who “have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions” (see Acta Sanctae Sedis XXIII [1890-91], pp. 743-747.). These impious hands are still actively at work in dismantling every visible reminder of the true religion that still remains, and they come under the guise of legitimate Catholic authorities who are in reality agents of Freemasonry with the aim of eradicating Catholicism from the face of the earth. They won’t succeed, we know for sure — but in the meantime, they will inflict incalculable damage to souls.

The latest piece of evidence for this comes to us from France. The “Catholic Students of Toulouse” organize a yearly “festival” entitled “Open Church” (see official page here), which includes several nights of defiling a Catholic parish church through profane dancing, drinking (yes, they have alcohol on tap right in church!), and the most horrid dance music. It resembles a rave club. Apparently they are now in their seventh year of doing this, all, of course, with the official approval and blessing of the Modernist hierarchy in charge.

Mr. Robert Le Gall is the pretend Benedictine “Catholic Archbishop” of Toulouse, appointed to this post, of course, by Benedict XVI. You can see him in one of the videos below enthusiastically endorsing this massive sacrilege, adding: “As you can see the church's sanctuary is closed for now. There's a time for everything.” Translation: “This is a multi-purpose building, not per se a sacred place consecrated to the Most Holy Trinity. Right now we’re engaging in all sorts of indecent behavior; later we may pray! Whatever, who cares?!” Clearly, even the secular journalist heard in the video has more Catholic sense than the “Archbishop”, asking: “Frankly, a sacred site thus desacralized — is this reasonable?”

Here is the first video — fasten your seatbelt, this is bad!

The ten-day “Open Church Festival” is being held as we speak, from September 26 until October 8, 2015. You can see more about it in the following videos, the first from 2014, the other a trailer clip for this year:

This year the location chosen for this outrage was the gorgeous church of Saint-Pierre des Chartreux in Toulouse, France. You can view pictures of this truly Catholic building here. The sacrilege is beyond measure. Holy Scripture has something to say about this: “Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end; see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary” (Ps 73:3); “Be not deceived, God is not mocked” (Gal 6:7).

Of course, for such profanation, they love to use real Catholic churches — beautiful old edifices built over decades by real Catholics for a sacred purpose, namely, the adoration of the Most Holy Trinity, and for the dwelling of our Lord Jesus Christ Himself in the holy tabernacle. It goes without saying that it is these holy buildings they want to use for their wicked “festivals”, not their own ugly Modernist dens, because this would detract from the “hipness” and “coolness” of defiling the sacred. Monsters, all of them!

Well, Francis had told them to make a mess. Here it is.

Francis speaks on Antipope and Antichrist

One bit of news that was totally drowned out by Francis’ visit to the United States was the in-flight press conference he gave on leaving Cuba on September 22. A reporter from the Italian
Corriere della Sera confronted Francis with the fact that more and more people, even secularists, are starting to ask themselves “if the Pope is a Catholic.” Instead of blushing for shame at such an embarrassing yet revealing phenomenon, Francis again showed his contempt for people who are beginning to detect that maybe he is not what he claims to be. See for yourself:


Gian Guido Vecchi, Corriere della Sera: Holiness, your reflections, also your denouncements of the inequity of the world economic system, the risk of self-destruction of the planet are also very uncomfortable, in the sense that they touch the powerful interests of arms trafficking, etc. Before this trip, there were some bizarre manifestations that came out. Also, very important world media picked them up and and sectors of North American society were even asking themselves if the Pope was Catholic. There have already been discussions about a communist Pope, now there are event those who speak of a Pope who isn’t Catholic. In the face of these considerations, what do you think?

Pope Francis: A cardinal friend of mine told me that a very concerned woman, very Catholic, went to him. A bit rigid, but Catholic. And she asked him if it was true that in the Bible, they spoke of an antichrist, and she explained it to him. And also in the Apocalypse, no? And, then, if it was true that an anti-pope, who is the antichrist, the anti-Pope. But why is she asking me this question, this cardinal asked me? “Because I’m sure that Pope Francis is the anti-pope,” she said. And why does she ask this, why does she have this idea? “It’s because he doesn’t wear red shoes.” The reason for thinking if one is communist or isn’t communist. I’m sure that I haven't said anything more than what’s written in the social doctrine of the Church. On another flight, a colleague asked me if I had reached out a hand to the popular movements and asked me, “But is the Church going to follow you?” I told him, “I’m the one following the Church.” And in this it seems that I’m not wrong. I believe that I never said a thing that wasn’t the social doctrine of the Church. Things can be explained, possibly an explanation gave an impression of being a little “to the left”, but it would be an error of explanation. No, my doctrine on this, in Laudato si', on economic imperialism, all of this, is the social doctrine of the Church. And if necessary, I’ll recite the creed. I am available to do that, eh.

(“Full transcript of Pope's in-flight interview from Cuba to US”, Catholic News Agency, Sep. 22, 2015)

Leaving aside for a minute the fact that the immediate background to posing this question had to do with the widespread mistaken notion that because Catholics are not allowed to be Communists, they must therefore be Capitalists, when in fact genuinely Catholic economics can be neither Capitalist nor Communist — the closest thing to a Catholic version of economics is “Distributism” —, what’s revealing here is the following:

  • Francis contrasts being “rigid” with being Catholic — when intransigence in matters of Faith and morals are the very hallmark of a good Catholic, as exemplified by Saint Pius X, to whom Francis claims to be devoted (LOL!)
  • It was Francis, not the reporter, who, in the context of this question, brought up Antichrist and Antipope — showing that he is quite aware of what is going on with regard to people’s views of him
  • Francis obviously considers it a laughing matter that people would think of him as an Antipope (=false Pope)
  • Francis makes fun of the woman’s concern, claiming that she is so foolish as to make his identity as a true or false Pope a matter of what color shoes he’s wearing
  • Even should this anecdote be true, Francis knows very well that this isn’t about shoes, and for him to take the conversation into that direction reveals his contempt for God’s Revelation concerning the Antichrist and the matter of an Antipope, and it shows he thinks his audience is incredibly stupid

Now, think about this: Who would have an interest in getting people to laugh at the idea of an Antipope and the (or an) Antichrist? The New Testament mentions the Great Apostasy, the Great Deception, the Antichrist and his False Prophet, numerous times, and never as a laughing matter — quite the contrary. 

For example: “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand” (Mt 24:24-25). Was our Blessed Lord cracking a joke? Apparently Saint Paul, too, was in a jovial mood when he warned the Thessalonians about a future “operation of error” which God would permit so that people would “believe lying” in punishment of their lack of a love for the truth (see 2 Thess 2:6-14). Not to mention the prankster St. John, who joked that “Antichrist cometh” and that “even now there are become many Antichrists” (1 Jn 2:18), teasing his children about “them that seduce you” (v. 26). Oh, the humor!


“This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father.” (1 Jn 2:22-23)

In 1861, the great Cardinal Edward Henry Manning gave a series of lectures on the great affliction the Catholic Church would have to endure — the deception, the apostasy, the persecution, the Antichrist and False Prophet — and he laid out not his own opinion on the matter, but what the Church had taught consistently throughout the centuries in her most learned authorities on the matter. If you have not yet read Cardinal Manning’s presentation, we beg you to do so, for the sake of your own soul, or at least to read our post with the most important highlights:

In this context, we also want to point something out to all those who consider themselves traditionalists but accept the Vatican II “Popes” as legitimate Popes who simply need to be “resisted” in the damage they have inflicted on the Church: Notice that in traditional Catholic teaching and approved prophecy, the Pope is always mentioned as being the victim, never the perpetrator — he is always suffering, being persecuted, being disobeyed, etc. Yet, what the recognize-and-resist adherents are trying to tell us is that the Pope, a true Pope, is the one doing all the destroying and persecuting! That the Pope himself is the problem! NO! The Holy Father is per se always the solution, never the problem. In that spirit, Pope Pius IX emphasized that in the face of anti-Catholic upheaval within or outside the Church, the solution is ever greater adherence to the Vicar of Christ:

Now you know well that the most deadly foes of the Catholic religion have always waged a fierce war, but without success, against this Chair; they are by no means ignorant of the fact that religion itself can never totter and fall while this Chair remains intact, the Chair which rests on the rock which the proud gates of hell cannot overthrow and in which there is the whole and perfect solidity of the Christian religion. Therefore, because of your special faith in the Church and special piety toward the same Chair of Peter, We exhort you to direct your constant efforts so that the faithful people of France may avoid the crafty deceptions and errors of these plotters and develop a more filial affection and obedience to this Apostolic See. Be vigilant in act and word, so that the faithful may grow in love for this Holy See, venerate it, and accept it with complete obedience; they should execute whatever the See itself teaches, determines, and decrees.

(Pope Pius IX, Encyclical Inter Multiplices, n. 7; underlining added)

Not something you’ve heard from the “traditional Catholics” at The Remnant lately, is it? Nope, can’t do that with Bergoglio or the other Vatican II impostor popes! So let’s pretend this teaching of Pius IX just doesn’t exist, right? What does that tell you?! More on this neo-traditionalist fantasyland with regard to the Papacy can be found in our response to a Remnant blogger’s idea that it just doesn’t matter if Francis is a valid Pope or not:

But let’s get back to the in-flight interview with Francis, the Argentinian papal pretender: Apparently he believes that merely reciting the Creed is sufficient to make you a Catholic. Really now? The Modernists are masters at affirming with their lips one day what they deny with the same lips on another — and that’s not even considering their actions, which always speak much louder than words. We have pointed out numerous times on this site that the Church has told us again and again to be on guard against crafty innovators, who make use of “the erroneous pretext that the seemingly shocking affirmations in one place are further developed along orthodox lines in other places, and even in yet other places corrected; as if allowing for the possibility of either affirming or denying the statement, or of leaving it up to the personal inclinations of the individual – such has always been the fraudulent and daring method used by innovators to establish error. It allows for both the possibility of promoting error and of excusing it” (Pope Pius VI, Bull Auctorem Fidei). And in Francis’ case, he doesn’t even mind stating explicitly that what he teaches may very well be heretical:


Francis kisses occult crucifix during World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro — DETAILS HERE

Francis is right on one thing, however: He
is merely repeating and developing Vatican II doctrine, just like his anti-pope predecessors of infelicitous memory. But the rupture between the Vatican II religion and the true Catholic religion is beyond reasonable dispute, as we prove in countless example throughout our web site. Francis knows very well that his doctrine is not the Catholic doctrine of old. Just look at the references he makes to the Catholic Church before Vatican II in any of his documents — practically zero. Sure, there are always the obligatory references to this or that Church Father, but then, like all Neo-Modernists, he skips ahead to John XXIII or Vatican II, as though in between the Church Fathers and Vatican II there had been nothing at all. It it was the proponents of the Nouvelle Theologie (New Theology) who always pretended to use the Church Fathers in their ressourcement theology, yet interpreted in a new way, which, of course, they claimed was a “rediscovery” of what they “really” taught. They did the same with St. Thomas Aquinas. Yet the New Theology was condemned by Pope Pius XII for its incompatibility with Catholicism:

At the 100th anniversary of Pope Saint Pius X’s exceptionally holy death last year (Aug. 20, 2014), Francis once again demonstrated just how connected he is to the traditional and real Church — by passing over this great centennial in complete and total silence, when the typical Vatican custom is to commemorate the most insignificant anniversary of anything (such as 36 years since the death of Paul VI):

We understand, of course, why Francis didn’t have time to even mention in passing such a monumental anniversary, the 100th of the passing of a sainted Pope whose body is incorrupt: He had to meet with Argentinian soccer players! 

Yes, Frank, we get it. Don’t you worry.

And no, it’s not about shoes.

Open Homosexual Mo Rocca is Lector
at Francis’ “Papal Mass” in New York City

It was to be expected that there would be some fireworks coming from Antipope Francis’ 
“Apostolic Journey” to the United States of America, a country whose Supreme Court has just decided that the definition of what a marriage is can be changed at will, not even at the decision of an absolute majority of voters, which would have been bad enough, but even by the mere decision of an unelected panel of five judges who feel like it.

While our full commentary on Francis’ entire U.S. trip is still forthcoming, we could not help but share with you this outrageous news that just reached us: At the “Papal Mass” in Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, on September 25, 2015, the man who participated as the official lector was Maurice “Mo” Rocca, an American television personality who is openly homosexual.

In 2009, the very same Mo Rocca participated in the filthy Broadway Bares, a “burlesque show fundraiser [in which] Broadway dancers and actors perform striptease dances for the audience at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City” (see Wikipedia Entry). We will spare you a link to the lewd event.

To make people aware of this horrific scandal, we have created the following meme, which we are also posting on Facebook and Twitter — feel free to spread it:

Secular news outlets have since picked up on this curious occurrence, such as
The Hollywood Reporter and NBC New York. A conservative Novus Ordo blog clarifies that Rocca was listed in the official program brochure for the “Mass” as the lector, so this was not spontaneous but planned (imagine that — planning who the lector will be at the “Pope’s Mass”!).

We can expect the typical damage control routine from the Novus Ordo Church’s most intrepid defenders. Expect Mark Shea, Patrick Madrid, Dave Armstrong, Tim Haines, and the other usual suspects to jump into action soon. But while Jimmy Akin prepares “nine things to know and share” in yet another effort at excusing his “Pope”, we would like to let our readers know that this latest scandal fits perfectly into the pattern already traced by Francis and his Modernist sect:

….and more, ad nauseam!

The conclusion is obvious, folks. Ignore it at your own risk.

Mr. Bergoglio goes to Washington:
The Francis Show in the United States


With apologies to Jimmy Stewart...

All bets are off as Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, the Argentinian apostate layman claiming to be the Pope of the Catholic Church, meets Barack Obama, the infanticide-promoting, Kenyan-born Socialist dictator claiming to be the President of the United States. Obama has long outed himself as an admirer of “Pope” Bergoglio, joining other high-profile leftists such as Hillary Clinton, Elton John, Madonna, Bernie Sanders, and others.

After visiting fellow-revolutionaries Fidel and Raul Castro in Cuba earlier in the week, Francis now marches on Washington, New York City, and Philadelphia to further promote his show of “humility”, “mercy”, and “love” that are nothing of the sort.

Nevertheless, we dare make some predictions:

  • Francis will largely ignore the most recent horrors perpetrated/uncovered in the United States: The Supreme Court’s decision Obergefell vs. Hodges, which “legalized” “gay marriage” in all 50 states (thanks to the “Catholic” judges), and Planned Parenthood’s butchering of children not merely inside the womb (as we already knew) but also outside the womb, harvesting their organs and tissues and selling them to “clients”
  • Francis will not rebuke Mr. Obama for anything, in any way, but smile alongside him for plenty of photos
  • Francis will not lift a finger to rebuke, correct, or discipline hypocritical “Catholic” leftists like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and others like them
  • Francis will happily greet and chat with everyone on the controversial White House guest list
  • Francis may drop a few hints that he “disagrees” with what Obama, the abortion industry, and the pagan left stand for — but this will only be done in a very soft and covert way (much like “Cardinal” Dolan did at the dinner with Obama and Romney in 2012) to pacify some conservatives in his own ranks, who will cling to these veiled words as “proof”, “ignored by the media”, that Francis really does oppose the moral decay of Western society — any such mild critique will be heavily outweighed by words and actions to the contrary
  • Francis will virulently condemn his pet peeves: climate change, consumerism, social injustices, deforestation, coldness of heart, refusal to welcome “immigrants” and “refugees”, rigidly clinging to “ideologies”, a church “turned in on itself”, etc., ad nauseam, all of which concern the here-and-now, and nothing which concerns man’s supernatural destiny, the true and ultimate goal of all human activity
  • Francis will happily participate in “interfaith” activities
  • Francis will happily kiss children, the sick, and the disabled — while ignoring that Planned Parenthood, which Obama & Biden worship, literally makes a killing on these very people insofar as they are still inside the womb and “unwanted” (sometimes even outside the womb)
  • Francis will boldly preach his Naturalist Gospel of Man
  • Francis will not say much that in essence the Dalai Lama couldn’t also say
  • Francis will ignore that which a true Pope worries most about: the salvation of souls
  • Joe Biden will gladly use the photo ops with Francis to promote his own campaign for president

...And Michael Voris and his Church Disneyland crew will be doing a lot of spinning!

Francis meets Cuba’s Fidel Castro

Cuba’s murderous and ruthless Communist dictator
emeritus Fidel Castro got a visit from His Phoniness today, “Pope” Francis. According to a report from ABC News, the meeting lasted about 30 minutes, and the atheist Castro gave Francis a book with his thoughts on religion, while Francis flooded Castro with CDs, his two encyclicals, and two books. Contrary to what Mark Shea might lead you to believe, no, this is not an indication that Castro is now ready to convert to Catholicism.

Here is a brief video clip of the “encounter”:

This meeting between the two revolutionaries took place while Cuban dissidents — that’s those who have spent their lives opposing the tyrannical Communist regime in power since the bloody revolution of 1959 — were not allowed to meet with or even see Francis, who, in any case, expressed no genuine interest in them or their cause. So much for reaching out to the peripheries — some are apparently more peripheral than others.

As The Washington Post reports, 

According to the Web site, two opposition activists were invited to greet the pope at Havana’s cathedral Sunday but were arrested on the way. Dozens of other dissidents were detained when they attempted to attend an open air Mass. They needn’t have bothered: The pope said nothing in his homily about their cause, or even political freedom more generally. Those hunting for a message had to settle for a cryptic declaration that “service is never ideological.”

(“Pope Francis appeases the Castros in repressive Cuba”, The Washington Post, Sep. 21, 2015)

At, one Cuban exile begged: “Dear Pope Francis, find a way to embrace victims before embracing their torturers” (
source). As always, Francis has managed to pander to all the wrong people, while leaving real victims by the wayside. It won’t matter to him, as long as the Francis Show can go on.
