Cardinal Burke Has Serious Doubts

Raymond Leo Burke - Wikipedia

Cardinal Burke

Back in August Raymond Cardinal Burke and several others sent a message to Pope Francis asking for answers to certain “dubia”–doubts–that they have concerning some of his theology. The full communication, Notification to Christ’s Faithful, is available online (

No. 1 on their list of “dubia” is this: Should the church “reinterpret Divine Revelation according to the cultural and anthropological changes in vogue”? I’m guessing these cardinals don’t want to do that but they’re afraid this pope does.

They’re also asking if this pope is suggesting that “the theology of the Church has changed.” For instance: Does every sin get forgiven, whether or not the sinner repents? I think that’s a very slippery slope. So do the cardinals. They think the Church could be led into “confusion and error.”

No answer has been received from the Vatican. The doubts continue unresolved.

The Church that belongs to Jesus Christ Our Lord transcends denominations. We should all be praying for “the ten just men” within the Roman Catholic Church. And stand together with them.

Pope: Meat Is An ‘Indulgence’

PsBattle: Pope Francis Laughing : r/photoshopbattles

Yucking it up! I wonder what he thinks is so funny.

I’d be more careful about flappin’ my jaw about indulgences, if I were Pope. But the Red Pope is getting at the planet-cooking practice of eating meat and how we should all lay off it from now on (

See, eating meat is “part of a self-destructive trend” that includes all kinds of “consumerism.” Well, he is the PETA Person of the Year for 2015. They wouldn’t honor him if he wasn’t a kook. Supposedly he eats a very simple diet.

He urges us to get rid of things we don’t need. He doesn’t say which things, but I think we can guess–cars, air conditioning, gas stoves, lights that come on when you flip the switch, etc. Plebs! Are you pumped up for a 13th-century lifestyle?

By the way… the leadership of very many Protestant churches is no better than what our Catholic brethren are getting.

I wonder what would happen if they tried to get people to give up their video games.


‘Pope: “The People Are Sovereign”‘ (2016)

This is how Pope Francis weaseled out of saying whom he supported in America’s 2016 presidential election.

Pope: ‘The People Are Sovereign’

He was caught between a rock and a hard place. If he endorsed Hillary Clinton, he was endorsing the Abortion Queen. And he couldn’t back Trump: Pope Francis doesn’t think the USA should have a border.

So he took refuge in “The people are sovereign–”

Not that he believes it for a minute.

Pope Apologizes for Converting Pagans to Christianity

Featured Image

Oh, come on now! It’s just a little smudging ceremony, “smoke and prayers” to Mother Earth. Besides, Pachamama said he could do it.

And there is no truth at all to reports that Pope Francis I “accidentally” apologized for the missionary work that converted many native Americans to Christianity.

“Look, he was into the smudging ceremony and he got a little carried away, okay?” said a person who was not there and really shouldn’t be used as a source. “It’s–well, kind of intoxicating to go around apologizin’ for things done by other people a long time ago. Once you start, it’s hard to stop!”

According to our unreliable sources, the Pope burst into tears when he described the “depredations of the missionaries” and denounced them for “intersectional socio-penultimacy” against “nice harmless folk religions.” “You don’t have to go to church anymore!” he may have added.

[Editor’s Note: This is, of course, a satire. It contains only two facts. 1) The Pope did allow an image of “indigenous goddess” Pachamama to be brought into the Vatican and set up on an altar. 2) He has taken part in a “smudging ceremony” with Native Americans in Canada. And perhaps we should add 3) He does “apologize” for things that other people did. But all leftids enjoy doing that.]

Pope to Appoint First Muslim Cardinal?

Pachamama: Mother Earth - Bolivia

“Pachamama told me so!”

We have not a shred of confirmation for this nooze story, not a mote of evidence; but in a spirit of contemporary Journalism, we’ll run it out there anyway.

Pope Francis I has reportedly indicated that he will soon appoint the Church’s first Muslim cardinal (

Said an unaccredited spokesman for the Vatican who might not really belong there, “Pope Francis was making an offering to Pachamama, the indigenous Amazon goddess, when he thought he heard the wooden image say, ‘Ain’t it time you had a Muslim cardinal?'”

“What could I do but say ‘Yes!’?” the pope may have exclaimed. Well, we think he did.

Normally a man must be a bishop or at least a priest before he can be made a cardinal, but we’ve heard the pope can do just about anything he wants as long as he can get away with it.

According to unreliable reports, there are two candidates for the honor: Mustafa Turhan Bey, a used car dealer in Istanbul, and Ali Magnun, a Saudi Arabian puppeteer.

According to a person who can have no idea what he’s talking about, having a Muslim cardinal is “a big step forward to a global government!” An equally frivolous source has the pope going “Eeny-meeny-miny-mo” to make his decision. “I suppose I could appoint them both,” he may have said, “but I don’t want to rock the boat, Pachamama wouldn’t like it.”

That’s our narrative, at least!

[Editor’s Note: In 2016 the Presbyterian Church USA had a Muslim imam pray at their national conference, an action for which they had to apologize. And that is not satire.]

Biden Too Far-Out Even for the Pope

“Incoherent?” Me???

Pope Francis I, who has come up with more than a few prize whoppers in his time, says he can’t make head nor tail of SloJo Biden’s position on abortion–which he has called “incoherent” and incomprehensible (

I wouldn’t have thought it possible that you could take a moral position which this pope would find objectionable. But Joe’s been in politics a long time. If he couldn’t do it, nobody can.

SloJo, who calls himself “a devout Catholic” (where do they learn to lie like that?), is on record supporting abortion under all circumstances, no restrictions whatsoever.

Catholic teaching calls abortion a moral sin. If any pope is going to deviate from that, he might as well find another job. Not even Francis, “the Red Pope,” friend to communism, world government, neo-paganism, Amazon fertility goddesses–not even he can follow SloJo that far out onto the abortion limb. It might break off.

We are seeing a plan for human extinction, engineered by fools who don’t know they’re under Satan’s direction, play itself out before our very eyes. A) Abort every baby they can. B) Provide sterility-causing “gender reassignment” to those who get past the abortionist: at the very least, sell them on LGBTQetc.–no babies that way. C) Shoot ’em up with experimental “vaccines” that might hasten them on to the morgue. D) Always offer assisted suicide as an option, worthy of the highest praise and emulation.

This is their plan for ridding the world of humanity.

Just a little too far-out even for this pope.

My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 3 (‘Christian Communists?’)

Communist Francis | Pope Francis Signs a Lamborghini | Know Your Meme

Is it real or is it photo-shopped? With this Pope you never know.

It really bugs me that the current Pope is always trying to wrest wealth out of the hands of those who worked for it and dole it out to those who didn’t.

Christian Communists?

How much power does this man want to give the government? Did he sleepwalk though the entire 20th century? He wants these thieves, villains, and shysters to “redistribute” wealth? How out-to-lunch do you have to be, to entrust that job to the likes of Barak Obama, Bernie Sanders, or Xi Jin Ping? We know where that wealth ends up!

This world needs a better Pope.

Red Pope Shows His Colors Again

Bemused Or Irritated? Pope Reacts To Gift Of 'Communist Crucifix' : The  Two-Way : NPR

Is this crucifix what I think it is?

Francis I, the socialist who became Pope, has called taxation “a necessary tool for wealth distribution” (

And who authorized “wealth redistribution”–and by whom? Shut up, he explained.

Indeed, it’s more than just a tool: Taxation, he sez, “must promote the redistribution of wealth.”

He tries to use the Bible to justify governments snatching up everyone’s possessions and “redistributing” them to layabouts, minus the great big chunks that stick to the government’s fingers. In Acts 4, the first Christians have all their property in common, selling what they own and donating all the proceeds to the church.

Context, please! These were the very first generation of Christians. They were trying to establish Christ’s Church here on earth. From this they could not afford to be distracted. Possessions, social position, business–these would take away from their mission. So nothing was to be allowed that did that.

So he’s saying Biden and Pelosi and Schumer should have de facto ownership of all your stuff so they can hand some of it over to ne’er-do-wells and use the rest of build bigger bureaucracies… and that that’s what the Bible means to say, only didn’t know how–good thing he came along! Instead of a church led by the Apostles, we’ve got Bernie Sanders and his friends. Oh, what’s the difference!


My Newswithviews Column, June 17 (‘The Pope’s Mixed Message’)

Joe Biden thanks Pope Francis for his 'blessings' in call with pontiff

Why did Pope Francis this week back out of giving Communion to Joe Biden? I mean, since when do abortion-happy Democrat politicians not receive Communion? Read on:

The Pope’s Mixed Message

Meanwhile, American bishops are worried that they’re not making sense anymore, so they want to come to a meeting of the minds on “Eucharistic coherence.” As a possible alternative to Eucharistic incoherence.

Churches forfeit their moral authority when they decide a sin is not a sin and the Bible’s wrong for saying it is.

I think I’d have to tell those bishops that the S.S. Moral Authority sailed several years ago…

And that the raft of expediency won’t hold them.


Pope Dodges Communion with Biden

Joe Biden thanks Pope Francis for his 'blessings' in call with pontiff

What’s wrong with this picture?

Should the head of the Catholic Church personally administer communion to a politician who avidly supports and promotes abortion, sodomy, and “transgender”?

Even Francis I, the Red Pope, is afraid to test the thickness of that ice.

China Joe had asked the Pope to do the honors for him, but yesterday the Pope called it off ( And tomorrow the U.S. bishops will begin a discussion on “Eucharistic coherence”–that is, the teaching that a Catholic can’t have communion and still “act in deeds or words against the commandments,” among which is a strong prohibition of abortion.

Ah! But at the same time, the Vatican has “warned” American bishops not to withhold communion from, ahem, “Catholic” politicians who continue to support and promote abortion. Mixed message, anyone? They say it’s because they don’t want the Eucharist getting mixed up with politics. Well, wouldn’t it be convenient if we could compartmentalize life to that extent?

And the bishops are in a bind because they’ve let things slide for too long and now they have to choose: stand against abortion, or wilt before the political bosses and perhaps lose all moral authority. Who’s going to listen to them if they declare abortion is a sin and then turn around and give communion to the likes of Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, etc.

Please note that all the fake Catholic politicians who promote abortion are Democrats.

Oh, boys! You’ve run out of time for business as usual.
