It just never, ever ends: Francis has had a busy week May 20, 2016

Posted by Tantumblogo in Bible, different religion, disaster, error, Francis, General Catholic, horror, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society, the struggle for the Church.

He began the week by pretending to see deep inside the heart of every business person who fails to provide health insurance, and finding mortal sin (not a safe link, goes to Distorter).  He finished by implying that Christ actually gave His blessing to divorce, rather than castigating it in the harshest terms.  Before I get to the quotes, can I just say, someone capable of turning Scripture and Tradition this upside down and placing it at war with itself, is capable of literally anything.

First, today’s debacle, Franky George Bergoglio making Christ a liar in order to further his modernist-progressive deconstruction of the Church:

This morning Pope Francis gave a homily at Casa Santa Marta where he appeared to claim that Jesus approved of the Mosaic Law on divorce on the grounds of mercy. Or, as Francis put it, Jesus enunciated the “official” truth while then going above it or beyond it in order to engage in accompaniment, integration and discernment.

This is of course the very opposite of what is described in Matthew 19 and Mark 10. It is the Pharisees who attempt to use the Mosaic Law to justify divorce. And it is Jesus who rebukes them for it.

The Pope is fond of accusing his enemies of “casuistry” but it is he who consistently engages in it. This twisting of one of the most famous exchanges in the New Testament is striking in its attempt to mislead.

That would be to prevaricate, to obfuscate the Truth with deliberate intent to mislead.  Is that what Francis is doing?

I am of two minds, kind of. My rational, evidentiary side says: absolutely!  These 60s Jesuits are not dumb.  They know precisely what they are doing, and they do it for very specific reasons, to force the Church to fit into their ideological preferences. They have been at this game for a long time, and the consistency of their arguments and willingness to make both themselves and Christ liars from one moment to the next – whichever they perceive as aiding their progressive cause the most – shows them to be agendized ideologues in single-minded pursuit of a goal.

But the other part – the merciful part – of me says, well, maybe he’s imbibed such hideous, nonsensical, contrarian nonsense for so long, Francis is not only incapable of consistent reasoning, he doesn’t even realize when he’s turning logic and the plain meaning of Scripture on its head.

I have a very hard time believing that, however.  The twists and turns of Francis’ logic are simply too consistent, and too aligned with a particular goal in mind, to be honest mistakes of zeal and bad formation.  That is to say, it’s well past time my doubts have been taken out behind the woodshed, and put down.

To wit:

According to the National Catholic Reporter, the pontiff made the comments while delivering a homily at Casa Santa Marta on Thursday evening. He reportedly outlined a hypothetical situation in which a business employs someone from September to June but denies them health care coverage during their tenure. Francis observed that when the job ends, the worker “must eat air.”

“Exploitation of people today is a true slavery,” the pope said, referring to the suffering of workers who aren’t treated fairly. “We thought that slaves do not exist anymore. They exist. It’s true, people don’t go to Africa to take them and then sell them in America, no. But it’s in our cities.”

“Living off the blood of the people: This is a mortal sin,” he added. “And it takes much patience, much restitution to convert ourselves from this sin.”

As usual, Francis fails to make a direct point. He strongly implies, however, that failing to pay what he feels are sufficient wages (whatever that means), or only employing people on a seasonal, need-based basis (so teachers are mistreated?), or failing to provide health insurance, constitute a mortal sin.

Note the dichotomy, and note the perfect correlation with progressive (Leftist) thought: sins of the flesh are infinitely excusable, if they are even sins at all (and not occasions for “accompaniment” and “mercy”), while prudential matters that may or may not be sinful, being entirely dependent on circumstance, are not just sins, but mortal sins.  Whatever happened to “who am I to judge?”

Anyway, I don’t want to beat this horse too much.  As I said at the top, every stinkin’ week it’s the same thing, some new outrage, some new attack.  I don’t think it any coincidence that the despicable Fr. Thomas Rosica went on the offensive this week against Catholic blogs, either, castigating them/us for everything from being a “cesspool of hatred, venom, and vitriol,” to being “very disturbed, broken, and angry individuals who never found a pulpit in real life.”  Once again, where is the mercy, where is the accompaniment, where the endless apologias?  The truth is, those are reserved for those who serve, or advance, the ideological agenda.  Opponents will be crushed.

Talk to the Franciscans of the Immaculate about that.  They weren’t even given the chance to be opponents of the new authoritarian regime, they were cdestroyed in advance as  warning to all others.

It’s all about power with these people.  Power, and ideology.

Ach, bloody hell. Yes, it never, ever ends. I just keep wishing he would stop talking already.

Aren’t the vast majority of actual slaves held by Mohammedans?

Tantumblogo - May 20, 2016

That’s exactly right, but further knowledge inconvenient to the cause, and so forgotten.

Francis does not know that slavery existed in many, many countries in many, many centuries before the Americans got into the act. Arabs have been notorious slave traders. And for the most part it was not poor black tribal Africans who were bought and sold – it was Slavs and other barbarian peoples (literally slaves) and other Arabs who were the prey. And slavery goes back to the very first battles of mist shrouded history – the conquered automatically became the slaves of the conquerors.

Poor Francis. A simple idiot ideologue.

Also know in Marxist terms as a useful idiot.

Doctors of the Church and renowned theologians have stated that a heretic cannot be a pope in good standing for he has put himself ipso facto latae sententiae outside the Church and therefore abdicated any authority or power. Ergo, Bergoglio cannot be a true pope because of his blatant heresy that he has yet to repent of as he lashes out at true Catholics while courting LGBTQ and Muslims, not for conversion mind you, but for tolerance so all will get along so Jorge can help effect the New World Order sooner. He has categorically, intentionally and maliciously castigated Catholic truth for his own Marxist ideology that is the antithesis of Catholicism. Yes, for unFrancis it is all about ideology, power and a contract with the devil. God help us and deliver us from such evil and may more receive the grace to resist with all their might those who have brought about the Great Apostasy over the past 50 plus years. Finally, I refer all to Galatians 1: 8-10, 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-11, and 2 Timothy 4: 3-4. Let us do what St. Paul counsels in 2 Thessalonians 2: 14: “Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle.”

Would like to hear more about this.

Ben, here are some references: See https://www.gloria.tv/media/Sh5pMzKP3qV and the Papal Decrees “Cum ex apostolatus officio” at http://www.DailyCatholic.org/cumexapo.htm and Pope St. Pius X’s “Pascendi” at http://www.DailyCatholic.org/pascend1.htm as well as his mandated Oath Against Modernism at http://www.DailyCatholic.org/oathvmod.htm John 23 through Francis have been Modernists. Ergo: heretics – ergo: excommunicated themselves from the Church – ergo: cannot be true popes. There are several other papal decrees, not to mention the Council of Trent, that verify Catholic truth as opposed to what is taught today, but I don’t want to give you too much to begin with. Take it slow and easy or it can be overwhelming. God bless and Our Lady keep you protected near her Immaculate Heart.

Thanks for picking up on the “mortal sin” comments on not providing insurance by business owners. What drivel!
And all encompassing. Anyone who owns a business? Any type, any size? Just damn them all. Small business owners are being driving out of business but this horrid economy. Now we have to worry about eternal damnation for hoping to keep our business afloat during these hard times?
I came back to the church hoping for the best. It was for awhile. Now this. I won’t leave but I can’t look to this fake spiritual guide anymore.

This “pope” is the biggest phony – got this from Rorate-Coeli: http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2016/05/21/when-pope-backs-workers-vatican-laity-wonder-what-about-us/

Pope Francis is a monster and if he isn’t thoroughly opposed, he will corrupt the Church far worse than its been before him.
