Dememtia Signs: Pope Francis's Comments on Poop Eating and Priests Caressing Children

Pope Francis's comments on poop eating are now infamous. Many are outraged, but I think the proper response is pity.

Most people don't realize that poop fixation and poop eating are signs of dementia as well as mental illness. To read more on these signs of metal unfitness and other signs of the Pope having dementia click below:

Pope Francis like President Reagan needs to say he will resign his office if he is found mentally unfit.


It appears at the very least the Bishops, Cardinals and Catholic media have to ask the Pope to receive a battery of psychological tests. 

At worst they need to ask him to resign for his own good to get the care he needs and for the good of the Church.

Pitifully, Francis's unbalanced comments continued on December 9 when he spoke of "healthy" priests caressing children. He said:

“Once, a person told me how he knew what kind of priest a man was by the attitude they had with children: if they knew how to caress a child."[

Fr. John Hunwicke speaking on these comments said it best:

"Fr Z also provided a link to a sermon preached by Papa Bergoglio in the Domus Sanctae Marthae. Coming as it does so soon after publication of the Sovereign Pontiff's words about shit-eating, this puerile and unbalanced attack upon those the pope appears to enjoy hating seems to me ... I feel compelled by Canon 212 paragraph 3 and the Holy Father's own often expressed desire for Parrhesia to say this ... to raise disturbing questions about Pope Francis' mind." [http://liturgicalnotes.blogspot.com/2016/12/is-fr-z-important.html?m=1]

Unfortunately, the Pope's unbalanced words have consequences.

It is possible for mentally unfit priests to use Pope Francis's comments on "healthy" priests caressing children to justify sex abuse.


It is possible for these sick clerics to use chapter 8 of "Amoris Laetitia" to justify "irregular relationships" involving children.

The mentally unfit priest's diseased mind could imagine a press conference where Pope Francis said:

"I was wrong to say that priests that have irregular relationships with children are committing sex abuse and committing mortal sin.

That is not merciful.

These priests may be in a state of grace and they might be able to stay in these irregular relationships and receive Holy Communion, but with discernment and in limited situations.

Amoris Laetitia says those who 'hid[e] behind the Church’s teachings, sitting on the chair of Moses and judging at times with superiority and superficiality.' Therefore,  'it is not enough simply to apply moral laws . . . as if they were stones to throw at people’s lives.'

The priests 'may know full well the rule, yet . . . be in a concrete situation which does not allow him or her to act differently and decide otherwise without further sin' (AL 301).

Remember the difference between objective sin and subjective guilt. Since there are in priests lives 'mitigating factors . . . it can no longer simply be said that all those in any ‘irregularsituation' – such as priests that have irregular relationships with children   – 'are living in a state of mortal sin and are deprived of sanctifying grace' (AL 301).

As I said we 'find it hard to make room for the consciences of the faithful' (AL 37).

The priests 'may know full well the rule, yet . . . be in a concrete situation which does not allow him or her to act differently and decide otherwise without further sin' (AL 301).

'Since ‘time is greater than space,’ I would make it clear that not all discussions of doctrinal, moral or pastoral issues need to be settled by interventions of the magisterium.'(Amoris Laetitia 3).

I understand that the rigorists want black and white rules for priests that have irregular relationships with children and 'I understand those who prefer a more rigorous pastoral care which leaves no room for confusion' (AL 308)."

"In logic, reductio ad absurdum (Latin for "reduction to absurdity"; or argumentum ad absurdum, "argument to absurdity") is a form of argument which attempts either to disprove a statement by showing it inevitably leads to a ridiculous, absurd, or impractical conclusion."[

In-depth Explanation of Dubia Consequences for Pope Francis including "Removing him from Office"

Author Dr. John R. T. Lamont, Ph. D., a Canadian Catholic philosopher and theologian, in the article "Considerations on the dubia of the four cardinals" for Rorate Caeli explains the Catholic dubia process and the possibility that Pope Francis could be removed from office. He said:  

"Some might argue that the dubia and other criticisms of Amoris Laetitia that have been made already suffice as warnings to Pope Francis, and hence that he can now be judged to be guilty of the canonical crime of heresy. These criticisms might be said to make it clear to informed observers that Pope Francis is in fact a heretic rather than simply in error. But for juridical purposes – especially for the very serious purpose of judging a Pope to be a heretic – they do not suffice. The evidence needed for a juridical judgment of such gravity has to take a form that is entirely clear and beyond dispute. A formal warning from a number of members of the College of Cardinals that is then disregarded by the Pope would constitute such evidence.

The possibility of a Pope being canonically guilty of heresy has long been admitted in the Church. It is acknowledged in the Decretals of Gratian, the foundational work of canon law composed in the 12th century. The Decretals were incorporated in the Corpus Iuris Canonici, of which they form the first part.
Gratian states:

If the Pope, remiss in his duties and neglectful of his and his neighbour’s salvation, gets caught up in idle business, and if moreover, by his silence (which actually does more harm to himself and everyone else), he leads innumerable hordes of people away from the good with him, he will be beaten for eternity with many blows alongside that very first slave of hell. However, no person can presume to convict him of any transgressions in this matter, because, although the Pope can judge everyone else, no one may judge him, unless he, for whose perpetual stability all the faithful pray as earnestly as they call to mind the fact that, after God, their own salvation depends on his soundness, is found to have strayed from the faith.[10] (Gratian, Decretum, Part 1, Distinction 40, Chapter 6.)

Various explanations have been proposed of how a Pope can be removed from office if he commits the canonical crime of heresy. The explanations seek to explain how the Pope can lose office without being judged by any of his inferiors in the Church on earth. The simplest and possibly the best explanation that has been offered is that the Pope by pertinaciously maintaining heresy effectively removes himself from office. However, all these explanations agree that a Pope who is juridically guilty of heresy can and must be removed from office. There is no dispute among Catholic theologians on this point – even among theologians like Bellarmine who do not think that a Pope is in fact capable of being a heretic.
 
            It is to be hoped that the correction of Pope Francis does not have to proceed this far, and that he will either reject the heresies he has announced or resign his office. Removing him from office against his will would require the election of a new Pope, and would probably leave the Church with Francis as an anti-Pope contesting the authority of the new Pope. If Francis refuses to renounce either his heresy or his office, however, this situation will just have to be faced."

Pope Francis's Bubble Wages Dirty War on 4 Cardinals


"G.K. Chesterton said 'Evil always takes advantage of ambiguity. Evil always wins by the strength of its splendid dupes.'

Dupe means victim of deception."(Catholic Monitor)

"Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers or...verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God's kingdom." (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)



Father Louis Cameli, author of "The Devil You Don't Know: Recognizing and Resisting Evil in Everyday Life," wrote:


The everyday tactics of the devil are deception, division, diversion and discouragement.

 
These are the tactics Satan uses in his cowardly and below the belt dirty war against all mankind.
 

It appears that those who surround the elderly, almost 80 years old, Pope Francis such as Fr. Antonio Spadaro and others in his inner circle or bubble are influencing others and even the Pope to use some of these tactics in a dirty war against the four Cardinals.


As I wrote in my article "If Pope Francis was President Reagan would the Media be Reporting Signs of Dementia?," the Pope at the beginning of his office knew the difference between Catholic doctrine and his personal opinions. 

In defense of Francis's opinions, those who surround him are leading the Church into a type of church tyranny as he appears to be falling into dementia. (Click below to read in-depth about the many signs that the Pope appears to be falling into senility.)[http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/2016/06/four-cardinals-challenge-pope-heresy.html

In the last few years, he has started showing signs of dementia in allowing those around him to act as petty tyrants. 

On top of that, he started confusing the difference between opinion and defined infallible Catholic doctrine especially in interviews and so-called pastoral initiatives.
 
In these situations, he many times appears to be reflecting the views of those who have created a bubble around him.
 

Unfortunately, those in the bubble surrounding him are said to have a "paranoid style," "conspiracy" thinking and appear to reject the most basic laws of reason according to reliable journalists.

EWTN commentator Robert Royal of The Catholic Thing said in the 2014 article "Pope Francis Needs New Friends" said:

"He's clearly in a bubble" with Cardinals like the German Kasper who wants "God to repeal the Laws of Non-contradiction" and radicals like the Honduran Maraiaga who were leading Francis to "connect...global poverty-with a kind of conspiracy theory about arms sales and war is simply bizarre."


 Also, journalist Phil Lawler of CatholicCulture.org said:


 It is " likely...people surrounding Pope Francis" have a "paranoid style " and have fallen into "conspiracy" thinking that "see enemies wherever there is resistance to their agenda."[https://www.catholicculture.org/commentary/the-city-gates.cfm?id=1367]


 Francis, as he is closes in on 80 years old, appears to be overly attached to the style, thinking and opinions of those who were called dissenters under Pope John Paul II and are now called liberals who make up his inner circle.


 This, being overly attached to certain liberal clerics, is reflected in interviews where he makes bizarre papal liberal statements such as couples in fornication are in a state of grace.
 

Also, in his apparent desire for unrepentant couples in adultery to receive Holy Communion which is always clouded in ambiguity. 


This desire appears to come from a attachment to Cardinal Kasper and his opinions. 

Dementia.com says a symptom of mid-stage dementia is becoming "overly attached to a certain person."
 
The senility website, also, said another symptom is becoming "angry...perhaps owing to frustration."


 
Vatican expert Edward Pentin told EWTN:

 “[S]ources within [the Pope’s residence] Santa Marta [say] that the Pope is…boiling with rage” because of a letter from four Cardinals.


 On November 14, it was revealed that Cardinal Raymond Burke and three other Cardinals have specifically asked Pope Francis in a formal letter to deny heretical interpretations of Amoris Laetitia that are counter or in direct division to Veritatis Splendor as well as sacred Scripture and the Tradition of the Church.


Fr. Antonio Spadaro has dismissed the Pope "boiling with rage" reports on Twitter. 


Father Raymond de Souza called Spadaro the “mouthpiece of Pope Francis.” Aleteia journalist Konrad Sawicki said the priest is “closer to Pope Francis than most people in the world."


 The "mouthpiece of Pope Francis" closeness to the pontiff should means his words in print or twitter carry great weight in understanding the mind and heart of the Pope.


However, despite Spadaro's closeness to Francis it appears to mean that he cannot be considered a unbiased spokesman because of his polemic tone. 


He, to the astonishment of many, called Cardinal Burke "a witless worm" on twitter after the letter was made public.


Of his past verbally abusive tone, Catholic journalist Phil Lawler said:

"Still more troubling has been the polemical tone adopted by Father Antonio Spadaro, the editor of the Jesuit journal Civilta Cattolica, who has worked closely with Pope Francis throughout the Synod process. On his Twitter feed Father Spadaro has poured out barbs, mocking those who question the apparent direction of the Synod."

 
Two friends of the Pope and newly made Cardinals (Cupich and Tobin) have in a mocking tone attacked the four Cardinals saying they need "conversion" and are "naive" in an apparent attempt to discourage them.

Other friends of Francis called the Cardinals "witless...schismatic, heretical, and even comparable to the Arian heretic" according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

The "mouthpiece of Pope Francis,"  the two Cardinals as well as the other friends of the Pope despite their name calling and belittling are obviously afraid to answer the 5 questions.

Instead of answering the "Yes" and "No" questions, they keep changing or diverting the narrative. Refusing to dialogue calmly, they belittle, verbally abuse and boil with rage.

Bishop Schneider in a statement said of these and the other friends of Francis that they are divisive in their "refusal to dialogue, and irrational rage." He, also, said their " violent and intolerant reactions...against the calm and circumspect plea of the four Cardinals causes astonishment."

The statement of Bishop Schneider and the letter of the four Cardinals in their clarity, beauty and calm sharply contrast with the supporters of Amoris Laetitia rants.

Truth is beautiful and clear.

Whereas, deception hide behind ambiguity, verbal abuse, divisiveness, discouragement and a mocking tone that attempts to divert the subject away from the real question.

Deception is ugly and ambiguous.

As G. K. Chesterton said "Evil always takes advantage of ambiguity. Evil always wins through the strength of its splendid dupes."

Dupe means victim of deception.

In the the name of Jesus Christ and his teachings, the Pope and his friends must simply answer the 5 simple questions and not change or divert the narrative with mocking smear tactics.



The famous Fr. Z explained how Spadaro and the other defenders of the ambiguity in Amoris Laetitia work. He calls them the "Smear Machine." Fr. Z said:

 "They of the Machine use the standard scare-labeling (in this piece, Card. Burke is an 'ultraconservative') along with an unflattering photo. They cite their darlings (here, the infamous Timothy Radcliffe). They make their goofy surmises based on their deep knowledge of Catholicism ('first step to declaring the pope a heretic the Church would be in unprecedented situation').  They psychologize the ones they want to belittle." 

Fr. Z failed to mention that Francis himself is the leader of the smear machine in psychologizing those they want to belittle. The Pope after the letter appeared, in an interview with the newspaper Avvenire, said:

“Where there’s not a nasty spirit, they can help you on the path,” he said. “Other times, you see quickly that criticisms taken here and there to justify pre-existing positions aren’t honest, they’re formed with a nasty spirit in order to sow division.”

These rigorisms, Francis argued, “are born from something missing, from trying to hide one’s own sad dissatisfaction behind a kind of armor.”

Despite the Pope and his friends attempt to discourage the Cardinals as well as isolate or divide them from the rest of the Church, they appear determined to continue.

 
It does appear that the letter might be the "first step to declaring the pope a heretic." If Francis refuses to respond he implicitly endorses heresy. The maxim of the law is "Silence gives consent."


 The Pope has two choices:

-To admit to error or heresy by silence

- To fight the heresies his ambiguity in Amoris Laetitia brought into the Church


If Francis chooses to remain silent and refuses to response to the letter, Cardinal Burke on November 15, in an interview with the National Catholic Register, said the Pope is in danger of receiving "a formal act of correction of serious error" from the Cardinals.

 
Oakes Spalding of the Mahounds Paradise blog said it best as to why Francis is afraid to answer the 5 "Yes" and "No" questions of the four Cardinals on if he supports heresy or not:

"The recent events involving Francis and his pontificate have been momentous. We may be witnessing the initial stages of an attempt to formerly "correct" a sitting pope for heresy.


 Four cardinals sent the Pope a formal document or 'Dubia' asking for clarification in the form of five simple Yes or No answers on the interpretation of the recenapostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The Pope refused to respond.


 Everyone knows why he refused. Pope Francis wants Amoris Laetitia to have a revolutionary effect on the Church. He wants it to be interpreted and taught by the bishops as allowing, among other things, communion for unrepentant adulterers.   

     
  This, is of course heresy - a contradiction of the words of Christ as well as the tradition of the Church -  and the Pope knows it. So, he can't explicitly confirm that the document says this. On the other hand, he can't explicitly deny that it says this, as this would largely quash the efforts of friendly bishops to put forward his desired heretical interpretation.

 So he refused to respond. And after a decent interval, the cardinals went public. Now the Pope and his men are predictably engaged in an intensive campaign to vilify the cardinals and anyone who might be allied with them."


Pope Francis and his friends in refusing to answer the 5 "Yes" and "No" questions of the four Cardinals on if he or they supports heresy or not are refusing to follow Jesus Christ's teachings:

"Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one." (Matthew 5:37)

"Boiling with Rage" Pope Francis Afraid to Answer 5 "Yes" & "No" Questions of 4 Cardinals on if He Supports Heresy or Not

Spadaro claims he was calling himself "a witless worm" and would never mock cardinals or Church clerics.

Unfortunately, his the recent past counters this claim. He has mocked cardinals and Church clerics who questioned the agenda of the Pope at the Synod.


Of his past verbally abusive tone, Catholic journalist Phil Lawler said:

 Dementia.com says a symptom of mid-stage dementia is becoming "overly attached to a certain person."

In the "Signs of Dementia" article, I go over many other more explicit examples of losses of touch with reality and confusion that seem to indicate Francis's possible mental unfitness.

If the elderly Pope Francis is mentally unfit he needs to resign his office. 

However, Francis can begin to show he doesn't have dementia by apologizing for the bizarre statements he has made that are 100 percent opposite of defined infallible Catholic doctrine. 

Next, he needs to break free from the bubble of adviser who have ill advised him and apologize for the verbal abuse they have unleashed on the four Cardinals and others.
