Does Pope Francis Believe in Truth or Power?

Catholic common sense, following St. Thomas Aquinas's philosophy, believes that our senses and reason are reliable.

Truth can be known.

In Edward Feser's philosophy blog a commenter named Rank Sophist argued against truth saying that Eastern philosophy believes that the senses and logic "lie."

Reality, truth and reason in Eastern Philosophy are "Maya" which means they are ultimately total illusion.

The sophist made me laugh.

Why is the dummy bothering to write (sense of sight) and agrue (logical presentation) if the guy believes the senses and reason are illusion?

The theologians that Pope Francis believes to be reliable such as the Hegelian Cardinal Kasper and the Postmodernist Michel de Certeau (Bergoglio's favorite theologian), like the sophist, don't believe in objective truth or reason.

But unlike the Rank Sophist, they can't be laughed away. They believe in power.

Eminent Austrian philosopher Thomas Stark, in an interview with the National Catholic Register, said that Kasper's theology is Hegelian idealism (senses are not reliable) which "historicizes truth" in a way that "is not coherent" and that "violates the law of non-contradiction."

"Historicized truth" means nineteenth century "truth" is different form twentieth century "truth."

"Violating the law of non-contradiction" means in Hegel's dialectic non-logic that sin can become non-sin and then evolve into something else.

As Francis's close confidant Fr. Spadaro who is called "the Pope's mouthpiece" wrote:

"2+2 in #Theology can make 5."

There is no objective truth or reason.

For Kasper there are not eternal infallible truths for all time. History or time is greater that truth. As Francis said:

"Time is greater than space."

The sin of adultery can become the non-sin of "irregular relationship" which can evolve into cohabitation/fornication which has "the grace of a real marriage" as Pope Francis said.

For St. Thomas adultery is adultery. Marriage is marriage. A hen is a hen. A egg is a egg.

Hegelians disagree with Aquinas. G.K. Chesterton explained how they think:

"The Hegelian may say that an egg is really a hen, because it's a part of an endless process of Becoming."

For Kasper, and it appears for Francis, there is no objective truth or reason.

This is bad. But, even worst is the end result of Hegelism.

In the book "The Ominous Parallels," philosopher Leonard Peikoff wrote of the ultimate end or Becoming of Hegel:

"'All the worth which the human being possesses,' writes Hegel, 'all spiritual reality, he possesses only through the state.'"

The Hegelian philosophy of history of superior states evolving from inferior states (or the bringing about of the super state from a inferior state by a process of Becoming) brought us:

The totalitarian states of the mass murdering holocausts of Hitler's National Socialist Germany (implicitly) and Marxist Russia (explicitly).

Philosopher Stephen Hicks in the book "Explaining Postmodernism" demonstrated how Marxism and Nazism are not just the direct product of Hegel's totalitarian state philosophy, but while using different names and tactics they both have the same ideology: socialism. Hicks wrote:

"Hitler, for example,  declared that 'basically National Socialism and Marxism are the same.' And Josef Goebbels, who had a Ph. D. in philosophy...argued the same point...that the Communists believed that socialism could be achieved at the international level, while the National Socialist believed that it could and should occur at the national level."

Marx and Lenin explicitly turned Hegelism into the Marxist historically evolved dialectic internationalist states.

Hitler implicitly turned the German Hegel's philosophy into the historically evolved superman racist national state.

Following in their Hegelian footsteps came the historically evolved Latin American Marxist/Socialist/Fascist tyrannies and disasters such as Peron's Argentina (and Nazi haven), Castro's Cuba and Maduro's Venezuela.

Francis supported Peron and Castro.

The Pope appears to be propping up the Maduro tyranny against the will the people of Venezuela who want freedom.

These tyrannies are the end result of Kasper's Hegelian philosophy.

In Kasper's theology, his "spirit" and "truth" are not the Holy Spirit or the infallible truths of the Catholic Church, but the historical process of Hegel's philosophy.

In an article called "German Idealism and Cardinal Kasper's Theological Project" for The Catholic World Report, the philosopher Stark said:

"Kasper's...'spirit' that--Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person, but is much more reminiscent of Hegel's absolute spirit, who in a historical process, synthesizing it's dialectical opposites in itself, develops into the whole, that is the truth."

Pope Francis, four days after his election as Pope, called Kasper a "good theologian." (Wikipedia)

In 2014, Francis said:

"I read and re-read the work of Cardinal Kasper, I would like to thank him because I found profound theology."(Catholic Herald)

As Jeff Mirus said of the Pope, when Francis praised Bernard Haring who defends intrinsically evils acts, he "must be ignorant, confused, or subversive."

Either the Pope is ignorant and confused, or Francis believes in the "spirit" of Kasper.

That "spirit" is not the Holy Spirit.

That "'spirit' that-- Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person."

Does Pope Francis believe in Kasper's "'spirit'...in a historical process" or the Holy Spirit who is eternally God and who insures the infallible eternal truths of the Catholic Church or the the Hegelian changeable god of historical process and the changing with time "truths" of Kasper, Hegel, Marx, Castro, Peron and Hitler?

After all, Francis in his uninspired and non-infallible writings says he believes in "initiating processes rather than possessing spaces" and "time is greater than space."

Washington Insiders & Allies from Wall Street Journal to CNN Big Lie Coup Attempt on Trump

President Donald Trump and the very foundations of American democracy appear to be the victims of what seems to be a coup attempt by Washington insiders.

As Roseanne Barr said the attack on Trump is "really a disguised attack on American voters."

Rush Limbaugh, today, on his show said:

"These people know there isn't any evidence of this, but that doesn't matter. What everyone in Washington supports is the smearing, the slander, the libel of Donald Trump. And these hearings today? The FBI director James Comey, is...trying to save the careers of a lot of people - his included - in, I think, an inappropriate way."

Limbaugh for most of the show showed that there is "no evidence" for the false "narrative" that there was collision between Trump and the Russians.

Rush said Comey and the Washington insiders appear to be threatening impeachment using the false narrative that he showed over and over again has no evidence.

It is propaganda that uses the "big enough lie" Nazi tactic. Hitler said:

"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it enough, it will be believed."

The truth is:

There is no evidence for the false narrative of the Washington insiders and their allies in the media ranging from the "conservative" Wall Street Journal to the blatantly, almost comically, biased CNN.

Left-wing journalist Glen Greenwald is a friend of Edward Snowden, high tech espionage expert "and worked with him on his story and...He has a website called The Intercept...he published a massive story yesterday... that there is no evidence and that the Democrats...are scared to death over the fact" said Rush.

Pray for our country and President Trump.

The Media and Washington insider elites are attempting a coup.

Using Nazi tactics such as street violence and big lie propaganda they are attempting a illegal seizure of power.

They are attempting a coup against democracy and President Donald Trump.

Pray for our country and President Trump.

For Whom are Spadaro and Pope Francis really Working?

-Updated July 22, 2017-

Fr. Z asked yesterday:

"For whom are Spadaro, et al., really working?

A internationally respected investigator and attorney gave us the detailed answer below for whom Spadaro and his boss are working:

Pope Francis on September 1, 2016 said he was "gratified that on September 2015 the nations of the world adopted the Sustainable Development Goals" which calls for universal access to abortion.

Does this means that Francis is "gratified" about universal access to abortion because he made no qualifying exception to abortion in his endorsement then or to this day?

Does the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals really plan universal access to abortion?

Goal 6 of the United Nations (UN) Substantial Development Goals (SDG) states that nations must:

"Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights."

The UN Conference in Cairo in 1994 said "abortion (as specified in paragraph 8.25)" is a "basic component of reproductive health care services."

In simple words, Pope Francis endorsed universal access to abortion.

Internationally known sex abuse expert, investigator and Attorney Elizabeth Yore at the 2016 Fatima conference in Chicago said the Francis endorsement was no surprise.

The papal approval of the UN plan for universal access to abortion and its population control scheme was planned and orchestrated well in advance by wealthy global elites according to the investigator and attorney.

At the Fatima conference Yore gave a speech that was really a presentation of the enemies battle plans and then she gave a battle cry.

On YouTube you will find her speech called "An Unholy Alliance: the UN, Soros, and the Francis Papacy."

In her website yorechildren.com and in the complete speech she presents detailed evidence to back up the part of her talk I present below.

All Catholics need to hear her battle cry.

Here is the most important part of her speech which I hand typed with my two fingers as Tolkien said:

"After spending the last three years investigating and witnessing, first hand, I am convinced this is a intentional and coordinated alliance between the Vatican, the UN and Soros."

"The radical one world order agenda is hidden and obscured by the false and manufactured climate change movement."

"Shockingly the movement found and secured its missing power broker: its missing link and its long sought after moral voice. The golden ring of the papacy was won and secured by George Soros through infiltration at the Vatican."

"Folks take note, they are moving at lightning speed. The mission has been accomplished by the environmental agenda. The new world order is well underway."

"The global warming globalists secured a perfectly timed and coordinated Vatican Apostolic Exhortation Laudato Si written intentionally in time for the UN vote on the Sustainable Development Goals."

"Then Pope Francis spoke at the UN general assembly which was timed on the very day the vote occurred and was passed."

"Francis repeatedly said he hoped his Exhortation would help pass the SDG and Paris treaty. The unthinkable happened: the Paris Climate Treaty passed in December 2015, a mere eight months after Laudato Si."

"Soros operatives pulled off a miracle with the most popular men on in the world."

"Who is George Soros? He is anti-God, anti-American and anti-Catholic. Even though he is a billionaire. He lavishly funds Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and countless media outlets."

"He seeks a one world order world governed by the elites."

"Make no mistake: this is about tyranny."

This is megalomaniac who bragged that he considered himself a god. This is George Soros. And he even claimed he was the boss of the pope. That was in the early 2000's. That has become a fact."

"Suddenly it appears his prophecy has come true. George Soros operatives are embedded in the Vatican. They have drafted Vatican documents that set up the Soros agenda which mirrors the Francis agenda."

"Mass immigration which George Soros funds and Black Lives Matter and environmentalism. The gig is up."

"We are in a death struggle with the secular culture and a global domination of elitists who seek to reduce the worlds population by force, redefine marriage and gender and govern by tyranny."

"As the photo shows, Pope Francis shared the podium with Jeffery Sachs and expressed his gratitude to the UN for its partnership. Jeffery Sachs was pointed to as the Vatican Academy's greatest supporter."

"We now know Soros directed money to influence the USCCB and to coordinate the Vatican through Cardinal Maradiaga."

"The mortal enemy of the Church has breached the Vatican walls and now is in encampment there."

"The author Micheal Crichton said that the greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fanasy, truth from propaganda."

"What is the reality about our world and those who wish to control humanity by tyranny, demagoguery, nuanced language and lies."

"The Left has given the world the sin of the century which is the sin against the child."

"More children have been willfully killed by adults in the last hundred years than in the whole preceding history of humanity."

"In the last hundred years, the eradication of the child is promoted by none other than the United Nations and funded by the mega-billionaire George Soros through his many Open Society Foundations."

"It is a object horror that these two entities are given a prominent role, a sit at the Holy See; that they have infiltrated the Chair of Peter; that they have formed a unholy alliance is beyond imaginable."

"But it is a reality we can't deny."

"The globalist control the media. They own the wealth. They control all the wealthy foundations. And now tragically control the Vatican and its mega-star pope."

"We can no longer play prevent defense. It is time to go on the offensive."

"What are we to do?"

This might be the final fight. Or it could be the definitive battle for the freedom of mankind."

"They have the money. We have the truth. They have the power and influence. We have the truth."

"They have the powerful United Nations. We have the Blessed Mother. No other weapon do we need."

This is Holy Mother Church that has been invaded by marauders of death. They are inside the walls. They are issuing edicts and plotting new strategies in the cover of darkness."

"We must shine the light on them. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. But we must speak up and do battle."

"I presume everyone here was confirmed. You are soldiers of Christ. Well its time to reenlist. As the dark cloud envelopes the Holy See and our beloved Mother Church. You are Our Lady's army of advocates."

"You must understand the cautionary words of C. S. Lewis which mirrors a Chestertonian epic."

"C. S. Lewis said 'This is enemy occupied territory. That is what this world is. Christianity is the rightful story that the rightful King has landed. You might say he landed in disguise and is calling us all take part in a great campaign of sabotage."

When you go to church, you are really listening in to the secret wireless from our friends. That is why the enemy is so anguished to prevent us from going. "

These has all been uncomfortable and terrifying. I know."

"But I am reminded of St. Therese, the Little Flower. The sweet gentlee young saint discovered the words of Our Lord in St. Matthew's Gospel:

'I came not to bring peace, but a sword.'"

"In her letter to her beloved sister Celine, the Little Flower wrote:

'There remains nothing else for us to do, but to fight. When we don't have the strength, it is then that Jesus fights for us.'"

"At the end of her life, she said, with the voice of a battle worn warrior, 'I shall die with weapons in my hands.'"

"Our Lady Queen of heaven and earth pray for us."

Pope Francis: Can Married Men in Adulterous "Irregular Relationships" be Ordained?

Pope Francis's close collaborator Cardinal Marx says married men in adulterous "irregular relationships" can receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.

Logically, the next question such be:

Can married men in adulterous "irregular relationships" receive the sacrament of Holy Orders and be priests?

Another question that should be asked is:

Can men fornicating in cohabiting "irregular relationships" be ordained to the priesthood?

After all, Francis said men cohabiting have "the grace of a real marriage."

Pope Francis's apparent desire to ordain married men leads to many new possibilities that the saints could only have dreamed about in their nightmares.

Clownish New York Times: Gave Evidence Obama Wiretapped Trump Month before it Accused him of not having Evidence

The New York Times, March 4 headline:

Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says Obama Tapped His Phones

On January 29, the Times headline was:

Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides

In this article the Times wrote that "wiretapping communications had been provided to the (Obama) White House" according to a American Spectator article.

The March 7 article was titled "Mark Levin's homerun: liberal media admits government spied on wiretapped political opponents."

Levin revealed that many elite media outlets were involved besides the Times in reporting on the American intelligence community's spying on the Trump campaign.

Levin, former chief of staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese, in the article said:

"This is not about President Trump's tweeting; this is about the Obama administration spying...The issue isn't whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign...the issue is the extent of it."

Despite the humor of the clownish journalism of the New York Times, this is serious.

What is already being called Obamagate appears to be bigger than Watergate.

An investigation bigger than the Watergate investigation could lead to former President Obama, the American intelligence community and the mainstream media being guilty of crimes must more serious than the crimes of former President Nixon.

Ivereigh, Allen and Pope Francis's Attack on "John Paul II and Benedict XVI," Catholic Faith & Western Civilization

-Updated August 11, 2017-

Crux contributing editor Austen Ivereigh is the mouthpiece of Crux editor John Allen as Fr. Antonio Spadaro is the "mouthpiece" of Pope Francis.

Ivereigh's piece "Pope Francis and the convert problem" for Allen's Crux is really a attack on the Catholic faith as Catholic World Report editor Carl Olson said:

"The real attack here is not on converts, but on Catholics upholding the Catholic faith." (Lifesitenews.com, "Pope Francis' biographer: Catholic converts who question pope are mentally ill," August 11, 2017)

Ivereigh, Allen and Spadaro are all just mouthpieces of Pope Francis's reorientation away from "John Paul II and Benedict XVI" and ultimately the Catholic faith that build Western Civilization.

Francis's "mouthpiece" and close collaborator Spadaro's recent attack on "value voters" or pro-life & pro-family Catholics is only a rehash of Crux editor John Allen's 2006 speech where he called pro-life/family Catholics "Taliban Catholicism" according to lifesitenews.com.

"America's leading Vaticanist" Allen said of Spadaro's article:

"Pope Francis and his team consciously are trying to reorient... away from the emphasis on Catholic identity and the cultural battles that dominated during the John Paul II and Benedict XVI years." (Crux, "Agree or not, it's good to know what Vatican insiders think of America," July 16, 2017)

The Crux editor approves Francis's reoriention away from the infallible moral doctrines that homosexual sexual acts and other acts such as adultery as well as abortion are intrinsically evil acts that are always forbidden.

Allen called the dissenting National Catholic Reporter "balanced" and a "precious gift." The NCR is pro homosexual "marriage" and has a columnist who "rejects the Church's condemnation of sodomy" ("John Allen's strategy for legitimatizing Catholic dissenting," lifesitenews.com, May 19, 2011)

Both Crux editor Allen and Pope Francis praised deceased dissenting moral theologian Bernard Haring who was the leader in promoting the idea that it is allowable to engage in intrinsically evil acts.

Allen called Haring "the legendary liberal moral theologian." ("Who Will Be the Next Pope?," National Catholic Reporter,  2005)

Even Amoris Laetitia supporter Jeff Mirus in a March 7, 2017 article for Catholic Culture.com said anyone who would praise Haring "as one of the first to give Catholic moral theology new life in the twentieth century must be ignorant, confused, or subversive."

In the beginning of the post, titled "Pope Francis and Bernard Haring: The literally infernal cheek of dissent," Mirus said:

"Pope Francis praised...Fr. Bernard Haring, for being one of the first to try to revive an ailing moral theology following the Second Vatican Council."

The article presented some of the moral theologian's dissenting heretical teachings:

"In his 1973 book Medical Ethics Haring defended sterilization, contraception and artificial insemination...According to Haring, under difficult circumstances, we may engage in a process of discernment which leads to the commission of intrinsically evil acts."

Allen unlike Mirus realizes that the Kasper proposal agenda which became Amoris Laetitia is all about allowing intrinsically evil acts such as adultery and homosexuality. Fr. Z said at his website on April 16, 2016:

"'Homosexuality' was the bigger issue with the Kasperites... This is still the Kasperite strategy."

The Kasper agenda and Amoris Laetitia's unavoidable logic is:

It follows that if unrepentant adulterers can receive Holy Communion, then unrepentant homosexuals can receive the Eucharist, too.

The bigger agenda of Cardinal Kasper and Haring (besides allowing intrinsically evil acts), which Allen and Francis probably don't understand, is a Hegelian philosophic idealistic subjective metaphysics of historical becoming which denies the eternal and/or objective truths of the Classical Greek/Thomistic metaphysics of being.

Edmund Waldstein, O.Cist. explains:

"This is a soft version of certain strands of modern historicism, indebted to Hegel. Having abandoned nature, and an objective teleological order, Hegel and some of his followers give to history a role analogous to that played by nature in classical philosophy.... Häring is proposing something similar for the life of the Church."

"I call this sort of historicism “soft” since its proponents would not all be willing to affirm the dark core of Hegel’s account of the good. But by adopting historicist terms they tend to draw conclusions that imply the basically subjectivist, modern account of the good, and the account of freedom that follows from it. Thomas Stark has shown how these problems play out in the theology of Cardinal Kasper."

The Classical Greek/Thomistic philosophy of being or objective truth and Revelation is the basis of all Catholic infallible doctrinal and moral teachings as well as the basis of Western Civilization and offshoots of it such as charity, objective intrinsic human rights and science.

If intrinsically evil acts are allowed through a denial of objective truth and objective Revelation, then not only does Catholic doctrinal and moral teachings collapse, but Western Civilization, also, collapses.

Pope Francis Apparently Approved Program with Porn "like" that used by "Sexual Predators" say Sex Abuse Experts

With Pope Francis's "apparent approval" a sex education program using pornography "like" that used by "sexual predators" was released at World Youth Day according to a March 6 article.

The article was written by Psychologist Gerard van den Aardweg and Sex Abuse expert Rick Fitzgibbons M.D. on Life Site News.com.

The two psychological experts stated the Vatican approved and released the Meeting Point program that "contained homoerotic and heterosexual pornography which was like that employed by adult predators of youth."

The porn predator-like program was developed by Vatican Archbishop Paglia who is infamous for commissioning "homoerotic, blasphemous art" for his Cathedral of Terni.

The two experts said the porn predator- like program "should be be withdrawn as soon as possible by the Vatican and its website closed."

Moreover, the article said for "the clergy evaluation of possible abuse of youth...the Meeting Point sexual education program for youth shoud be searched, as well as, Archbishop Paglia's personal computer used at the time."

The article titled "Is the pontificate of Francis in the clutches of the gay lobby?" stated that the Pope was "severely negligent."

Pope Francis vs. Jesus Christ, or Francis is 100% Wrong in Contradicting Jesus

Jesus Christ told the Pharisees that you can't divorce and remarry. It is unlawful. Jesus said:

"Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery."

Pope Francis, in his February 24 homily, presented his version of what Jesus told the Pharisees on divorce and remarriage. Francis said: 

"Jesus does not answer whether it is lawful or not lawful; He doesn't enter into their casuistic logic. Because they thought of the faith only in terms of 'Yes, you can,' or 'No, you can't."

Francis is 100% wrong. He is contradicting Jesus Christ who is God.

Jesus said divorce and remarriage is unlawful.

He said it is unlawful.

Jesus said you can't divorce and remarry.

He said you can't.




"
