There are times when I wonder whether it is worth all of the effort to parse works of Modernist heresy and bilge, especially given the fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s revolutionary agenda is obvious for everyone to see except for those who are willfully blinded by their refusal to see the truth that is directly before their very eyes and right smack in their faces.
The answer as to why it is necessary to spend some much time and to write so much verbiage to refute the errors of the day was given to us nearly five centuries ago by none other than Saint Thomas More, who explained why he had to go to great lengths to refute the heresies of William Tyndale:
Now, whereas these good, blessed brethren say that my writing is so long and so tedious that they will not once vouchsafe to look thereon: they show themselves that my writing is not so long as their wits be short, and the eyes of their souls very purblind, while they cannot see so far as to perceive that in finding so many faults in that book which they confess themselves they neither read nor can find in their heart to look upon, they sho themselves either of lightness ready to give hasty credence to other folk or of malice to make many lies themselves. It is little marvel that it seem long and tedious unto them to read it over within, whom it irketh to do so much as look it over without; and every way seemeth long to him that is weary ere he 5 begin. But I find some men, again, to whom the reading is so far from tedious that they have read the whole book over thrice—and some that make tables thereof for their own remembrance—and that, such men as have as much wit and learning both as the best 10 of all this blessed brotherhood that ever I heard of. Howbeit, glad would I have been if it might have been much more short; for then should my labor have been so much the less.
But they will, if they be reasonable men, consider in themselves that it is a shorter thing and sooner done [to write heresies] than to answer them. For the most foolish heretic in a town may write more false heresies in one leaf than the wisest man in the whole world can well and conveniently by reason and authority soil and confute in forty. Now, when that Tyndale not only teacheth false heresies but furnisheth his errors also with pretense of reason and Scripture— and instead of reason, sometimes, with blunt subtleties and rude riddles too—the making open and lightsome to the reader the dark writing of him that would not by his will be well perceived hath put me to more labor and length in answering than some man would peradventure have been content to take. And I sometimes take the pain to rehearse some one thing, in diverse fashions, in more places than one, because I would that the reader should in every place where he fortuneth to fall in reading have at his hand, without remitting over elsewhere, or labor of further seeking for it, as much as shall seem requisite for that matter that he there hath in hand. And therein the labor of all that length is mine own, for ease and shortening of the reader’s pain. (The Apology of Saint Thomas More.)
It is rather encouraging, to say the least, that a friend of ours sent us a fragment of Saint Thomas More’s Apology, as the full text, which I found online, explains precisely the length and redundancy of my own articles. Although I am not comparing my work to that of Saint Thomas More, the pedagogy that I use is the same. This means that I strive to be thorough while at the same time recognizing readers may not remember what has been written in the past. Repetition is the mother of learning, and I know that my writing is both long and repetitious. Then again, this site is not for all readers, especially in today’s world of soundbites.
This is why much time is going to be taken to deal with Amoris Laetitia, and I imagine that the work may take another month to complete.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio can give his approval to the text presented before him by Victor Manuel Fernandez without too much fuss and bother as it represents a justification for all of his daily screeds at the Casa Santa Marta and for his ramblings on other occasions before jetting off to the Greek island of Lesbos. It is in his wretched wake that some of us must toil, and it with this in mind that ask your patience before I can complete the entirety of the series on Amoris Laetitia.
For the moment, however, I want to repeat myself concerning the fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a super-hypocrite of the thirty-third degree.
The latest demonstration of this incontrovertible fact is to be found in the explanation that he gave while flying back to Rome from Lesbos on Saturday, April 16, 2016, when answering a question that had been posed to him during his latest gabfest with reporters:
Ines San Martin (Crux): Holy Father, what we’ve read… The first question is about the trip. This trip is happening just after an accord between the European Union and Turkey has come about … Do you think this is a political question in order save time? This morning, you met with the presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, at Santa Martha. I wanted to ask you your feelings on the meeting and on your way of approaching North American politics…
Pope Francis: “First of all, there is no political speculation because I didn’t know much about these accords between Turkey and Europe. I saw them in the newspapers. Bringing these refugees away is a humanitarian thing. It was an inspiration from a week ago that I immediately accepted, because I saw that it was the Holy Spirit who was speaking. Everything was done legally. They’ve come with us with their documents in order. The Vatican, Italy and Greece have given them a visa. They will be welcomed by the Vatican with the collaboration of Sant’Egidio who will find work for them. But they are guests of the Vatican and they are added to the two Syrian families that are already given hospitality by the two Vatican parishes.
Second. This morning when I walked out, there was Senator Bernie Sanders who came to the congress on “Centessimus Annus.” He knew that I was leaving at that time and he had the courteousness to greet me. I greeted him and his wife, and another couple with him that was staying in Santa Marta, because all of the members of the congress, except the heads of state who I believe were staying in their embassies, were staying at the Santa Martha residence. I gave a greeting and nothing more. A greeting is an educated thing to do and does not mean to be mixed up with politics. If someone thinks that to give a greeting means to get mixed up in politics, I think he needs a psychiatrist. (Full Text of Jorge's Gabfest with Fawning Reporters.)
Since when does Jorge Mario Bergoglio or any of his “bishops” care about documents or the just immigration laws of nations to secure their borders?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has championed the “rights” of illegal immigrants over and over again throughout the three years, six days of his stupendously horrific tenure as the sixth in the line of current antipopes. He encourages illegal immigration. So have his “bishops.”
Indeed, the conciliar “bishops” of the United States of America have done so, both collectively and individually, for decades now, going so far as to adopt the language of groups that seek to encourage and enable illegal immigration. Here is just one example, and it comes from none other than Timothy Michael “Cardinal” Dolan, who has been the conciliar “archbishop” of New York since April 15, 2009 (for those of you keeping score at home, mark that six long years of yukking it up at the “happy” non-bishop of the ten counties that constitute the Archdiocese of New York):
Yup. And I'm glad you allow me to make that distinction, David [Gregory of Meet the Press]. We bishops have been really kind of in a tough place because we're for universal, comprehensive, life-affirming healthcare. We, the bishops of the United States, can you believe it, in 1919 came out for more affordable, more comprehensive, more universal healthcare. That's how far back we go in this battle, okay?
So we're not Johnny-come-latelies. We've been asking for reform in healthcare for a long time. So we were kind of an early supporter in this. Where we started bristling and saying, "Uh-oh, first of all this isn't comprehensive, because it's excluding the undocumented immigrant and it's excluding the unborn baby," so we began to bristle at that.
And then secondly we said, "And wait a minute, we Catholics who are kind of among the pros when it comes to providing healthcare, do it because of our religious conviction, and because of the dictates of our conscience. And now we're being asked to violate some of those."
So that's when we began to worry and draw back and say, "Mr. President, please, you're really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here. We want to be with you, we want to be strong. And if you keep doing this, we're not going to be able to be one of your cheerleaders." And that sadly is what happened. (Dec. 1, 2013: Timothy Dolan, Meet the Press- Transcripts.)
This is what I wrote at the time of the interview, which aired on the National Broadcasting Company on Sunday, December 1, 2013, the First Sunday of Advent:
"We want to be with you."
Sure, let's get this straight.
Timothy Michael Dolan and most, although not quite all, of the conciliar "bishops" of the United States of America want Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's monstrous statist takeover of the American healthcare industry that is in complete and total violation of the Natural Law principle of Subsidiarity to "succeed."
Timothy Michael Dolan and most of the conciliar "bishops" of the United States of America want those who have entered the United States of America illegally to receive full social benefits, including cradle-to-grave medical care, on the backs of American taxpayers, who are are already suffering from the statist, collectivist and redistributionist programs wrought by one naturalist regime after another, whether of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" or the false opposite of the naturalist "left."
Timothy Michael Dolan boldly proclaimed in his interview with David Gregory that Obama/Soetoro was "really pushing aside some of" his "greatest supporters."
That's a statement for you.
How can any man who believes himself to be a true bishop, no less a Prince of the Catholic Church, claim that he "wants to be with" Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, a man who has promoted the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn with a ready abandon that has outstripped the pro-abortion William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and his own team of social engineers twenty years ago now?
How can any man who believes himself to be a true bishop, no less a Prince of the Catholic Church, claim that he "wants to be with" Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, a man who has been ruling unchecked by decrees that have been issued in full violation of the provisions found in the Constitution of the United States of America as he decides for himself which laws his administration will enforce and those that he wants to ignore, such as, leaving aside the issue of dealing with the illegal immigrants who are in the United States of America already (for a discussion of the issue of illegal immigration, please read Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 1 andGood Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 2), the laws governing the protection of the borders of this country?
How can any man who believes himself to be a true bishop, no less a Prince of the Catholic Church, claim that he "wants to be with" Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, a man who is stacking the Federal court system with one radical pro-abort, pro-perversity jurist after another?
How can any man who believes himself to be a true bishop, no less a Prince of the Catholic Church, claim that he "wants to be with" Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, a man whose administration has stonewalled investigations into the scandals of the Fast and Furious program, the cover-up of the terrorist attacks on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, on Tuesday, September 12, 2012, and the cover-up of the Internal Revenue Service's illegal investigation and harassment of his own political opponents, to say nothing of the Orwellian espionage on the citizens of the United States of America and world leaders themselves by the National Security Agency?
How can any man who believes himself to be a true bishop, no less a Prince of the Catholic Church, claim that he "wants to be with" Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, a man whose administration has sought to usurp more and more and the rights reserved to the states by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, including bringing lawsuits against the State of Arizona, whose Governor, Jan Brewer, convinced the Arizona state legislature to pass legislation to enable police officers to interrogate a person arrested for another offensive if they were citizens of this country, and bringing lawsuits against states whose legislatures have passed just laws designed to prevent voter fraud?
"We want to be with you"?
Well, doesn't that about say it all?
It is thus hypocritical and disingenuous for “Inspector Jorge,” who must be a close relative of Inspector Jacques Clouseau, to claim that he needs to have “documents” as he is as recklessly lawless in this regard as “bishops” and as his ideological comrade, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro.
From being concerned about “documents,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio chose to take Mohammedans with him to Italy because he wanted to make a statement about what he sees as “Islamophobia” that is a response to the warm welcome that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other European leaders have given to the hordes of Mohammedan invaders that overwhelmed one European country after another.
Bergoglio is thus in league with the statists of Europe and the United States of America, each of whom is using waves of illegal immigrants as a means to engineer dramatic demographic changes within their borders. European and American statists alike are committed to the complete the process of what is left of even a generic sort of Christianity just as Bergoglio desires to show the “openness” of his own false religious sect to the sort of “ecumenism” that makes room for “believers” of non-Christian religions even those “believers want to impose Sharia law one day.
Bergoglio is of one mind and one heart with statists of every stripe imaginable, including socialists and out-and-out Marxists.
He has gone out of his way to greet mass murderers such as Fidel and Raoul Castro.
He has gone out of his way to show his warmth and affection for supporters of the genocide of the preborn such as Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Francois Hollande and Dilma Rousseff, among so many others.
Jorge has gone out of his way to make it appear as though concubinage is just an “alternative life style” (remember the greeting that he gave to the pro-abortion, pro-perversity Governor of New York, Andrew Mark Cuomo, and his concubine, Sandra Lee, at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom).
Yes, the Argentine Apostate has gone out of his way to embrace and to give his “blessing” to everything that is abnormal, aberrant and overtly sinful.
That this egregious heretic would claim that he took the Mohammedans because their “documents” were in order is thus the height of hypocrisy. Jorge Mario Bergoglio knows full well what he is doing, and his refusal to take any Christians back with him to Italy on the grounds that they did not have their “documents” in order is laughable on its face.
After all, how many Mexicans and Central Americans have their “documents” in order as they cross the Mexican border into the United States of America illegally? They enter illegally because they do not have their "documents" in order! Perhaps more to the point, how many Mexicans and Central Americans (and Syrians) who received a "blessing" from the lay Jesuit on the border of the United Mexican States with the United States of America when he was in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday, February 17, 2016, going so far as to blaspheme the Prophet Jonas as a Champion of Illegal Immigration.)
How many “Syrian refugees” flooding into Europe have had their “documents” in order as they have flooded into one country after another?
It is no wonder, therefore, that a supporter of illegal immigration into the United States of America, United States Senator Bernard Sanders (D-Vermont), a hard-core Stalinist, was invited to speak at a conference commemorating the twenty-five anniversary of Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II’s Centesimus Annus, May 15, 1991. “Bernie” Sanders is a kindred spirit of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s as both believe in socialist causes such as forcible income redistribution, the use of world governance bodies to combat “climate change,” and the use of illegal immigration to engineer a change in the demographics of entire natures as to make any thought of reversal statism and the surrender of legitimate national sovereignty to globalist bodies impractical. Both men want more of what has failed, statism, as both men believe that not enough has been done thus far to “reform” what are said to be unjust social structures that are the result of the Protestant Revolution’s overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King.
It was as the newly named Patriarch of Venice that Giuseppe Melchiorre Cardinal Sarto denounced what the likes of Bernard Sanders and Jorge Mario Bergoglio support:
In August 1896 in Padua, the second Congress of the Catholic Union for Social Studies took place. We have already seen that this organization had been created seven years before by Professor Giuseppe Toniolo, in the presence of the Bishop of Mantua [Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto]. This time, eight bishops were present and several directors of the Opera del Congressi took part. All the eminent representatives of the Italian Catholic Movement were present (Medolago Pagnuzzi, Alessi and others). Cardinal Sarto's address attracted considerable notice. Faced with "ardent enemies" (unbelief and revolution) "...menacing and trying to destroy the social fabric," the Patriarch of Venice invited the participants to make Jesus Christ the foundation of the their work: "the only peace treaty is the Gospel." He warned them against what is now called the "welfare state," the state which provides everything and provides all socialization: "substituting public almsgiving for private almsgiving involves the complete destruction of Christianity and it is a terrible attack on the principle of ownership. Christianity cannot exist without charity, and the difference between charity and justice is that justice may have recourse to laws and even to force, depending on the circumstances, whereas charity can only be imposed by the tribunal of God and of conscience." If public assistance and the redistribution of wealth are institutionalized, "poverty becomes a function, a way of life, a public trade..." (Yves Chiron, Saint Pius X: Restorer of the Church. Translated by Graham Harrison. Angelus Press, 2002, p. 100)
Cardinal Sarto reiterated theme fourteen years later in Notre Charge Apostolique:
We fear that worse is to come: the end result of this developing promiscuousness, the beneficiary of this cosmopolitan social action, can only be a Democracy which will be neither Catholic, nor Protestant, nor Jewish. It will be a religion (for Sillonism, so the leaders have said, is a religion) more universal than the Catholic Church, uniting all men become brothers and comrades at last in the "Kingdom of God". - "We do not work for the Church, we work for mankind."
And now, overwhelmed with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Sure, I suppose only those who need to see a psychiatrist can claim that Bergoglio’s brief encounter with Bernard Sanders and his wife, who is a Catholic, by the way, and the fact that this Stalinist pro-abort was invited to speak at a supposedly “Catholic” conference made a political statement just as surely as he meant to make a political statement when he said that Donald Trump was not a Christian because he was in favor of protecting the integrity of this nation’s borders.
Inspector Jorge Clouseau is a hypocrite.
Inspector Jorge Clouseau's embrace of socialism and socialists stands condemned by the authority of the Catholic Church:
We make this pronouncement: Whether considered as a doctrine, or an historical fact, or a movement, Socialism, if it remains truly Socialism, even after it has yielded to truth and justice on the points which we have mentioned, cannot be reconciled with the teachings of the Catholic Church because its concept of society itself is utterly foreign to Christian truth. . . .
120. If Socialism, like all errors, contains some truth (which, moreover, the Supreme Pontiffs have never denied), it is based nevertheless on a theory of human society peculiar to itself and irreconcilable with true Christianity. Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are contradictory terms; no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist. (Pope Pius XI, Quadragesimo Anno, May 15, 1931.)
Let’s face facts: Inspector Jorge leaves nothing to chance. He makes a statement with everything he says and does, including the answer he gave about whether “possibilities” exist for divorced and civilly “remarried” couples who lack a decree of marital nullity from a conciliar marriage tribunal to receive what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service that has flummoxed some of his “conservative, pro-life” defenders in the never-never land that is conciliarism. (Please see Novus Ordo Watch Wire for some commentary on Bergoglio’s answer about this matter, which will be handled on this site in due course in my continuing series on Amoris Laetitia.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio meant to make a statement by taking Mohammedans to Italy with him three days ago, and the statement is this: “I support the work of Angela Merkel and the European Union to flood Europe with ‘refugees.’ This is 'change' you must believe in and accept without question.”
May Our Lady help us, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary, to see the hand of God in all of the events of the time in which we live. We have her maternal guidance and protection in these troubling times. All we need to do is to make more liberal use of her Most Holy Rosary as we offer up everything we must suffer at this time and for the rest of our lives in reparation for our own sins and those of the whole world as her Divine Son’s consecrated slaves through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
