Communist/Nazi-like Brown Shirt Maxine Waters "Coming for You Next": Republicans, Christians, Pro-lifers & Free Speech

After Rep. Maxine Waters incendiary Communist/Nazi-like remarks, Breitbart reported that Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams who isn't a Republican and doesn't vote said that he will be voting and declared if you want "free speech" vote:

"[T]hey're coming for you next. And they're not hiding it... The one and only way to protect yourself is to make sure they lose the election."

Waters declared:

"[They] won't be able to go to a restaurant... turn on them... harass them until they decide that they're going to tell the president, "No, I can't hang with you." (Breitbart, "Nancy Pelosi: Maxine Waters Comments "Unacceptable'- and Trump's Fault," June, 25, 2018)

Pope Francis's McCarrrick-like #HIMTOO Closest Confidants & Collaborators



 Pope Francis strolls hand in hand with the anti-gangster and gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti.


Who, in terms of confidants and collaborators, has left a more suspicious #HimToo trial: Cardinal McCarrick or Pope Francis?

Pope Francis's McCarrrick-like #HimToo inner circle:

Business Standard, September 19, 2017:

Francis's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith perfect Archbishop Ferrer will go to trail for "complicity in alleged cover-up" of paedophile priest.

LifeSiteNews, March 7,2018:

Francis's closest advisor in the C9 papal inner circle Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga left in charge of his Honduras archdiocese his close confidant Bishop Juan Pineda "accused of 'abusing seminarians, having a string of male lovers.'"

National Catholic Reporter, April 29, 2014:

Vebuumdei.blogspot, June 23, 2014 & Catholic Monitor, April 18, 2017:

Francis strolled hand in hand down the street with gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti at a anti-gangster event.

Chiesa, December 16, 2016:

Vatican expert Sandro Magister said Francis has a "number of homosexual priests in the inner circle of his closest collaborators and confidants."

Caucus99percent.com, 02/02/2018:

"Pope Francis' continuous aiding and abetting of sexual predators and his officials who protect them."

"Although he was personally informed of the accusations against them, Pope Francis protected these sexual predators: Fr. Mauro Inzoli (the pope later defrocked Inzoli but he is still a free man) Luis Fernando Figari, Archbishop Anthony Apuron, Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Miranda Melgarejo, Fr. Don Corradi and Archbishop Josef Wesolowski."

"After Pope Francis did nothing to stop Corradi, the priest and four others were arrested in November 2016 and charged with raping and molesting at least 22 children. More reports poured in and 'it’s now thought that as many as 60 children fell victim to abuse.'”

"Wesolowski was put under Vatican house arrest 14 months after the pope judged him to be guilty only after 'there was a serious risk that [he] would be arrested on Italian territory at the request of the Dominican Republic authorities and then extradited,' as reported by Corriere della Sera. The archbishop was found with more than 100,000 computer files of child pornography, a “key ingredient” in sex trafficking. Wesolowski continued to possess child pornography even under Vatican house arrest."

"Kamil Jarzembowski, a former student at the Vatican’s preseminary, wrote a letter about the sexual abuse of minors in the school and handed it directly to Pope Francis. The pope did nothing to stop it."

"Pope Francis had ordered an investigation of Honduran Bishop Juan José Pineda by an Argentine bishop who was “shocked” by “accounts of sexual abuse perpetrated against priests and seminarians …. So far the only action that has been taken has been to send Bishop Pineda to stay with Jesuits in Madrid on a short retreat,” wrote veteran Vatican reporter Edward Pentin."

"Pope Francis promoted Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican department that judges cases of clergy sexual abuse. While Ladaria held the second highest position in the CDF, he found Fr. Gianni Trotta guilty of sexually abusing minors in 2012 but failed to inform the Italian authorities. Trotta, already convicted of sexual violence against an 11-year-old and sentenced to eight years in prison by a civil court, is now standing trial for nine other alleged cases of sex abuse against boys that occurred in 2014. Ladaria, himself, will stand trial in April, accused by French authorities of “complicity in the alleged cover-up” of Fr. Bernard Preynat."

"A month after his election, the pope appointed a Council of Cardinals to help him govern the Church. Three of the eight initial members had protected pedophile priests: George Pell, Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa, and Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga who he named as head of the council."

"Pope Francis promoted to cardinal Archbishops Gerhard Ludwig Müller and Ricardo Ezzati who had covered up for pedophile priests."

"Pope Francis has taken no action against any of the 14 other bishops accused of complicity with abusive priests. A recent investigation in France exposed five additional pedophile-protecting bishops still in office."

"(Pope Francis has no problem taking action against people for reasons other than sex abuse. He removed Cardinals Gerhard Müller and Raymond Burke from their Vatican positions. He removed Fra’ Matthew Festing as Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, a position equal in status to cardinal in the Catholic Church. He removed the “Bishop of Bling.” He ordered that three priests be fired from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith without explanation. Giulio Mattietti, deputy director of the Vatican Bank, was fired with no reason given.  Although religious orders usually select their own superiors, the pope dismissed the head of the Order of the Franciscans of Immaculata. Pope Francis excommunicated Fr. Greg Reynolds for advocating for women’s ordination. He excommunicated Martha Heizer, head of the reform international movement We Are Church, and her husband, Gert Heizer, for celebrating Mass in their home with a small group of friends.)"

"...Criticism of the pope has been limited to admitting that child sex abuse is merely a 'blindspot.'”

"It was the same when, this past June 29, Cardinal George Pell was charged with “historic sexual abuse” and left for his native Australia. Pope Francis’ first 'reform' of the Vatican had been to create a Secretariat for (his) Economy, and give Pell 'authority over all economic and administrative activities within the Holy See and the Vatican City State.'”

“Yes, some coverage has been more critical of late, especially Francis’s handling of the sexual abuse scandals in the wake of the criminal indictment of one of his top aides, Cardinal George Pell, in Australia. Even then the tone tends to be, ‘Francis is such a great guy, so why is this area lagging behind?’ observed the experienced Catholic reporter, John L. Allen Jr."

"It was reported with little, if any, criticism of Pope Francis by the mainstream American media."

"... Again, when Pope Francis gave Cardinal Bernard Law a benediction at Law’s Dec. 21 funeral mass, there was little, if any, criticism. The Boston cardinal had been forced to resign after he had reassigned and covered-up for rape and sexual assaults of children by scores of priests for years without informing the public or the police."

"Unfortunately for the world’s children, the U.S. mainstream media did not report that 'There are still bishops who have chosen to protect the Church and their priests more than children" who ‘make Law look like an amateur,as declared by Fr. Thomas Doyle, a well-known author and victims’ advocate for over three decades." [https://caucus99percent.com/content/us-media-pope-aiding-and-abetting-torture-moral-leader]

Pope Francis's words against Homosexuality and Abortion are Meaningless unless he Condemns his Heresy of the Primacy of Conscience promoted by Amoris Laetitia

-Pope John Paul II in Veritatis Splendor wrote:

"Certain currents of modern thought have gone so far as to exalt freedom to such an extent that it becomes an absolute... This is the direction taken by doctrines which have lost the sense of the transcendent or which are explicitly atheist. The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment which hands down categorical and infallible decisions about good and evil... But in this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear."[http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/5346/a_malta_laetitia.aspx]

-Dissenting liberal theologian :

"Previous Popes – including John Paul and Benedict – tried to quash
the views of theologians who didn’t tow the party line and promote the moral supremacy of the Church’s teachings...If Pope Francis is indeed promoting the Catholic teaching of the primacy of conscience... It may show people that it’s OK to be both Catholic and part of, say, the LGBT community – because that is what God is instructing them to do in their hearts... The primacy of conscience is the idea that God’s voice lies in your soul, and it is a sin not to listen to it. It is reconcilable with the notion that the Church is a moral authority, though only if it can be fallible and challenged by human conscience, as Pope Francis himself is showing." [https://www.google.com/amp/s/matteogagliardi.com/2014/04/02/the-primacy-of-conscience-the-only-way-forward-for-the-catholic-church/amp/#ampshare=https://matteogagliardi.com/2014/04/02/the-primacy-of-conscience-the-only-way-forward-for-the-catholic-church/]


  
-Pope Francis:

"[T]he primacy of conscience, which must always be respected."[https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2017/11/11/pope-francis-reaffirms-primacy-conscience-amid-criticism-amoris-laetitia]

-Francis's Conscience Supremacists, who hold the new Gnostic heresy of the primacy of conscience or the supremacy of conscience, tell the sexually active homosexual, the abortionist, the murderer, rapist, sex abuser, the person in adultery or anyone in objective mortal sin that they are not in mortal sin if they are at "peace" with it, if the sinful behavior is "humanly impossible" to change, "if they can't change their sinful behavior" or don't know it is wrong.


Pope Francis's recent words against homosexuality and abortion are empty or meaningless unless he condemns his heresy of the primacy of conscience which is promoted by Amoris Laetitia.

Pope John Paul II condemned Francis's heresy of the primacy of conscience when he said "individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment." 


Dissenting liberal theologian  says Francis's heretical primacy of conscience condemns "John Paul and Benedict [teachings of ]... the moral supremacy of the Church’s teachings."

Professor of moral theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary Mark Latkovic agrees that primacy of conscience is "heterodoxy" in saying:


"Primacy of conscience has been thrust to the fore of Church-wide discussions on marriage, contraception and homosexuality... John Paul II called “a separation, or even an opposition, in some cases between the teaching of the precept, which is valid in general, and the norm of the individual conscience, which would in fact make the final decision about what is good and what is evil. On this basis, an attempt is made to legitimize so-called ‘pastoral’ solutions contrary to the teaching of the magisterium and to justify a ‘creative’ hermeneutic according to which the moral conscience is in no way obliged, in every case, by a particular negative precept” (Veritatis Splendor, 56), i.e., a moral absolute."

"... John Paul II warned against as an illegitimate application of conscience... This proposal would not lead to Christian conversion, but confusion; not holiness, but heterodoxy." 
[http://m.ncregister.com/daily-news/propagating-the-primacy-of-conscience-error#.Wy0-099lDqA]


The war in the Church is between Francis's Conscience Supremacists who hold to the supremacy of conscience vs. the Catholics who hold to the supremacy of God and His moral law as taught by the Church. 

As those who hold to the supremacy of whites are white supremacists, those who hold to supremacy of conscience are Conscience Supremacists or Supremacists for short.

The Supremacist's teaching of the supremacy of conscience is a new Gnostic heresy as shown by renowned theologian :

"People are encouraged to discern, on their own, the best course of action, given the moral dilemma they face in their own existential context – what they are capable of doing at this moment in time.  In this way, the individual’s own conscience, his or her personal communion with the divine, determines what the moral requirements are in the individual’s personal circumstances.  What Scripture teaches, what Jesus stated, what the Church conveys through her living magisterial tradition are superseded by a higher 'knowledge,' an advanced 'illumination.'”

"If there is any new Gnostic paradigm in the Church today, it would seem to be found here. To propose this new paradigm is to claim to be truly “in-the-know,” to have special access to what God is saying to us as individuals here and now even if it goes beyond and may even contradict what He has revealed to everyone else in Scripture and tradition." [https://www.thecatholicthing.org/2018/06/07/gnosticism-today/]

Francis's Conscience Supremacists, who hold the new Gnostic heresy of the primacy of conscience or the supremacy of conscience, tell the sexually active homosexual, the abortionist, the murderer, rapist, sex abuser, the person in adultery or anyone in objective mortal sin that they are not in mortal sin if they are at "peace" with it, if the sinful behavior is "humanly impossible" to change, "if they can't change their sinful behavior" or don't know it is wrong.


 The only persons who are not allowed a primacy of conscience are those who uphold "what Jesus stated, what the Church conveys through her living magisterial tradition."

The war in the Church is between the hypocrisy of Francis's Orwellian selective supremacy of conscience vs. the supremacy of God's moral law as taught by the Church as theologian, Crisis magazine writer and Pope John Paul Il expert Jeffrey Tranzillo pointed out:
 

"After a long period of soul-searching, Fr. Weinandy sounded the alarm starkly yet charitably, and he got slapped down for it. So much for the respect we owe to the primacy of conscience and to the process of “discernment.” It seems that the only thing that matters is to maintain a semblance of ecclesiastical unity–a “unity” built on systematic threats, coercion, retribution, and either brutal or more sophisticated PR campaigns designed to calumniate good people. The new “truth” is that which power can get everyone to perceive as true, despite its objective falsity."


"...As we have seen, the only way for the pope and his subversive bishops to implement AL’s diabolical agenda is to feign unity by ruthlessly intimidating, threatening, or smothering every voice that is, in good conscience, rightly opposed to that agenda. We have also seen examples of one of their favorite preemptive tactics: that of hurling at innocent people outrageous accusations whose content actually applies rather conspicuously to themselves."


"But even a deplorable tactic such as that doesn’t necessarily make fully clear to us what we’re dealing with. Right now, there is a titanic, perhaps definitive struggle going on in the Church between good and evil. We are witnessing an intense, revolutionary attempt by the devil and his minions, both human and demonic, to overthrow and destroy all that Christ has willed His Church to do and to be. So it is not surprising that the rhetoric we’re hearing in the Church these days has often a Marxist cast: The Church is guilty of having treated unfairly and discriminated against this or that 'class' of people–especially grave sexual sinners of one kind or another. The people in that class, it is said, have been excluded from ecclesial life, marginalized, and made to feel unwelcome. The 'oppressed' classes must therefore all be 'integrated' into the life of the Church, and the Church must apologize for having oppressed them in the first place.
[29]"

"Marxist atheism demands that the new 'Church' it seeks to fashion fabricate a false god–one that doesn’t insist on the observance of reasonable moral laws that foster human dignity, especially if someone has 'great difficulty' understanding, in 'conscience,' their relevance to his own situation, or if he has 'discerned' that they would not be appropriate to follow at this time. Better yet, this 'god' can ratify in a person’s own conscience his decision to sin gravely, given his personal limitations and concrete circumstances. In the end, moral subjectivism such as this leads to the denial of the existence of any morality at all, and hence to the denial of the existence of its Author."

Tranzillo goes into detail about the war in the Church between the hypocrisy of Francis's Orwellian selective supremacy of conscience vs. the supremacy of God's moral law as taught by the Church in his article: "Amoris Laetitia on Conscience and Discernment: Do those who Preach what it says really Believe what it says?," November 28, 2017. [http://trulycatholicmatters.com/]

John Paul II agreed with Tranzillo that making the conscience the supreme tribunal leads to " denial of the existence of any morality at all, and hence to the denial of the existence of its Author" when he taught in Veritatis Splendor:

"This is the direction taken by doctrines which have lost the sense of the transcendent or which are explicitly atheist. The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment which hands down categorical and infallible decisions about good and evil... But in this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear."


This may be a valid question to ask Pope Francis who is promoting the conscience as the supreme tribunal:

Do you believe that the conscience is the supreme tribunal or do you believe in the Incarnation and salvation, as every Pope and saint in history has believed, since you appear to deny the very words of Jesus Christ and his Church by your theology of conscience?


John Paul II taught that anyone who thinks as you do on the individual conscience being a supreme tribunal is a "explicit atheist."


Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and that Francis's Conscience Supremacists who hold to the heresy of the primacy of conscience are formerly condemned.

It's not about Child/Parent Separation, but Child Abuse, Smuggling & possibly Sex Trafficking by Parents handing their Children to "Human Smugglers" & Drug Cartels

Most Americans don't realize how dangerous and corrupt the Mexican border towns are:

When I visited a Mexican border town about 8 years ago to visit a relative of a in-law, the town mayor had just been killed probably by the local Mexican drug cartel.

A friend and relative of mind were attacked and beaten by the border townspeople when they protested about being cheated. Luckily, the Mexican police arrested them and they were able to bribe their way back to the USA.

Even Wikipedia admits that those who traffic in bringing people over the borders called "Coyotes" or "human smugglers" have a "growing association with drug cartels."

What kind of parents would allow their children to be involved with "human smugglers" and drug cartels or hand them over to them?

Yesterday,  DHS Secretary Kirsten Nielsen told Breitbart:

""10,000 of the 12,000 [ children "in the care of HHS right now"] were sent here alone by their parents."

If anyone in the US handed their children over to "human smugglers" and drug cartels, they would be arrested for child abuse.

Child abuse is when parents or caregivers through actions or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk to the underaged boy or girl.

Freedomoutpost.com, today, noted:

The "footage recently released by the HHS...[is]  only boys ages 10 and up. Where are the girls?"

What do drug cartels do besides sell drugs and do human smuggling?

Prostitution is usually another business of drug cartels.

What kind of child abusing parents would hand over their sons and daughters to "human smugglers" and drug cartels who possibly are, also, dealing in sex trafficking and prostitution?

"Where are the girls?"

Pray an Our Father now for the poor children of such parents.

Hypocrisy: Cdl. Dolan's Double Standard for Citizen Lawbreakers vs. Illegal Alien Lawbreakers

Cardinal Timothy Dolan has never said that it is "God's law" that US citizen parents who break the law which causes them to be jailed can't be separated from their children.

If it is "God's law" that parents who break the law must never be separated from their children then Dolan needs to demand that all US citizen parents in New York City jails separated from their children immediately be released or placed in facilities where they can be together.

It appears that Dolan means only illegal aliens are above the law and may illegally break the laws of our country.

Apparently, Dolan supports New York City "sanctuary laws" which according to the New York Post says critics claim "shields undocumented aliens who commit... sexual abuse, prescription drug sales, bribery, money laundering, harassment, grand larceny and drunk driving, from federal detention and deportation." 

Staten Island Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said:

"It's almost as if the City Council is more interested in protecting illegal immigrants than the safety of the very citizens they represent."
(New York Post, "This NYC laws shields illegal aliens who commit crimes," March 6, 2016)

Is Dolan more "interested in protecting illegal immigrants than the safety of" US citizens?

Does he think illegal aliens have rights while US citizens aren't allowed to have the same rights under "God's law"?

Dolan is a hypocrite unless he goes on CNN and demands all citizen parent lawbreakers who are separated from their children be immediately reunited.

According to pychopathfree.com, hypocrites are "hyper-aware of minor (or non-existent) wrongdoings, while actively dismissing anything that they themselves are doing wrong."

Here are a few examples of things that according to Dolan, apparently, are not against "God's Law":

- LifeSiteNews reported Dolan said Met Gala costumes of a "sexualized Blessed Virgin Mary, Rihanna dressed as a pope and 'flesh-flashing' outfits adorned with Christian  symbols" were not "blasphemous."

-Church Militant reported Dolan was sued by parishioners for "covering up for a homosexual priest who stoled millions from parishes to finance a sadomasochistic sex life."

According to Church Militant, Dolan allowed gay groups into the St. Patrick's Day Parade, but no "pro-life group has ever been allowed, though several applications have been made."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Rosenstein must be Fired for Obstructing Congressional investigation of Top FBI agent Strzok and the Upper Leadership of the FBI attempting to overturn US Rule of Law

The just released Department of Justice IG report reveals that top FBI agent Peter Strzok and the upper leadership of the FBI were attempting to overturn the rule of law by fixing the last presidential election.

Also, apparently, Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was obstructing "a congressional investigation" into the FBI scandal according to House Intel Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes.

Personal attorney to President Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani, yesterday, said "Strzok should be in jail":

"Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions have a chance to redeem themselves and that chance comes about tomorrow. It doesn't go beyond tomorrow. Tomorrow, Mueller should be suspended and honest people should be brought in, impartial people to investigate these people like Peter Strzok. Strzok should be in jail by the end of next week."
[https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/06/14/giuliani_mueller_must_suspend_investigation_send_strzok_to_jail.html]

There is no reason to believe Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein will redeem himself. Rosenstein needs to be fired immediately and replaced by "impartial people to investigate these people like Peter Strzok."

Yesterday, House Intel Committee Chairman Rep. Nunes (R-CA) called the Strzok-Page text messages released with the Department of Justice (DOJ) IG report which were redacted a "classic case of obstruction" against Congress by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein's DOJ:

 "Why did I find out about that, today, at noon?" Nunes asked. "How could that have possibly have been redacted?"

"I mean, this is a classic case of obstruction, but then, the question is, who’s going to go investigate these guys?" he said.

 "These are emails or text messages that somebody held from us, so every day that goes by, there is a new example of obstruction of a congressional investigation," Nunes said. "The same people in charge today still believe they can run the clock out, and they're trying to run the clock out for the rest of this Congress so we can't finish our investigations."

"I want to read, to you, an exchange between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the star-crossed lovers. She basically said, you know, she was worried (ph) he’s -- Donald Trump’s not going to get elected, right, right. And he answers, basically, don’t worry, we’ll stop it. No, no, no, no, we’ll stop it," FOX News' Ingraham Angle host Laura Ingraham said to the Congressman.

"He was the lead investigator on the Clinton e-mail case," Nunes responded. "He’s the lead investigator that starts off the counter intelligence investigation, using our intelligence agencies to go after and target the Trump campaign. This is the guy who leads that off, but worse than all that, worse than all that, and I just want to repeat what I said, in the opening."
[https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/06/14/nunes_on_strzok_text_how_could_that_have_possibly_been_redacted_classic_case_of_obstruction.html]

Nunes said his staff has "felt threatened" by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and people should be concerned about "obstruction" of a Congressional investigation:

 "The staff definitely have felt threatened. Just recently, the staff were all kicked out of the room. What people should be concerned about the most right now is obstruction of a valid congressional investigation by the Department of Justice," House Intel Committee Chairman said.

 "The problem we have here is who's going to investigate the investigators?" Nunes stated.[https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/06/14/nunes_rosenstein_obstructing_a_congressional_investigation_whos_going_to_investigate_the_investigators.html]

Peronist Pope Francis's Theology is "Strongly Evocative of the [German] National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'" according to Renowned Theologian Rowland

The executive director of Catholic News Agency and the editor of a papal biography on the current pope, Alejandro Bermudez, says:

The "biggest impact on Francis' thought were Jesuit Fr. Juan Carlos Scannone... a professor of young Fr. Bergoglio- as well as Argentinian Fr. Lucio Gera."
(Catholic News Agency, "The theological formation of Pope Francis," March 17, 2018)

Scannone is a "second generation disseminator" of Gera's Theology of the People which governs Francis's thought and papacy according to Latin America and Pope Francis expert Claudio Ivan Remeseira.

According to Remeseira, the "thinking of Pope Francis has been shaped by two specifically Argentinian factors... Peronist theologians and priests [such as Scannone who] seek to reconcile their political beliefs with the ecclesiology of the People of God championed by Vatican II."

This amounted to a mixture of Franco-like Fascist Peronism with Peronist leftist secular socialism that was the "Argentine social-welfare state" which Remeseira called "National-populist ideology" and the belief that "popular culture is... the sign of the Holy Spirit's presence in the community":

"[T]he Peronist... terminology was reminiscent of Francoist Spain, but instead of turning the country into a National-Catholic regime, Peron turned around the relationship between Church and State... Argentina morphed into a secular National-populist ideology.... [with] [o]ther characteristics of Peronism common with Fascism... fervent nationalism... the identification of Party and Nation as one."

"The centerpiece of this ideology was the charismatic relationship between Leader and People... the religious undertones of Peronism were captured by Evita [wife of Peron], the [Virgin Mary-like] mediator between the Leader and the masses [the "People"]... When Evita died... a saint-like cult of her memory rapidly spread across the country."

"... The long established influence of German idealism [the philosophy of the Modernist heresy] in Argentine philosophy also played its part... [Modernist German] Cardinal Walter Kasper points out that during his doctoral studies in 1950s Germany, Gera 'became familiar with... the Tubingen school (of theology)... teachings about the spirit of the people', the volkgeist."

"The ethnic essentialism associated with the notion of the volk had a peculiar spin in Argentina... the mestizo population that had been displaced by the those immigrants. The displacement of the lesser-skilled labor force by the [Peronist] gringos... [a] majority of the Argentinian churchmen- including Bergoglio- were themselves first or second generation European ["gringos"] immigrants; their awareness of, and in some cases, their feelings of guilt, help explain their support for Peron and their entrenched dislike of capitalism."

"In this theology, the People are defined in a narrow sense as the poor and the dispossessed..."

"... [the "People's"] Latin American Catholicism... a suspicious mélange of pre-Christian beliefs, half-baked Catechism precepts, and outright superstitions. Gera... develop[ed]... as key to the spiritual renovation of the Church."
(Medium, "Pope Francis, Peron and God's People: The Political Religion of Jorge Mario Bergoglio," September 17, 2017)

Renowned theologian Tracey Rowland says that the "Argentinian 'People's Theology" gives:

A "privileged epistemological standing to the 'people' similar to that given to the proletariat class by Marxist theorists and to the 'Volk' by the German National Socialist...To European ears', the notion of 'the people' enjoying some kind of special epistemological status is strongly evocative of the National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'... Scannone would argue... their spirituality is based on [popular culture as explained by Gera] Christian beliefs, not Norse mythology."
(Catholic Theology, page 182)

To a large extent, Pope Francis's Theology of the People, it appears, is not based on Revelation.

Francis's thinking appears, to a large extent, to be based on a theology that believes the "key to the spiritual renovation of the Church" is the People's "pre-Christian beliefs, half-baked Catechism precepts and outright superstitions" and is "strongly evocative of the [German] National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'" as well as the Argentinian Peronist mixture of Franco-like Fascist and leftist socialist secular political beliefs.

Please say an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Behind the Scenes War between Pope Francis and Cdl. Parolin?

Is there a behind the scenes war between Pope Francis and Cardinal Pietro Parolin?

-As Vatican expert Sandro Magister reported on May 20, Francis did not follow Parolin's Vatican Secretariat of State script or text against the Venezuelan regime provided for the press.

-The Spectator in December said that "some Catholic observers are speculating" it was Parolin's  "forces inside the Secretariat of State" who leaked the scandal reports on Francis's close collaborator Vice-Pope Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga.

-Gloria.tv says " the second man in the Vatican Secretariat of State" Archbishop Giovanni Angelo Becciu "a blind follower of Francis" is rumoured to be in "conflict with his boss... Parolin" is in order to be made cardinal to "be removed."

-Why was the close collaborator, personal theologian and reportedly the writer of most of Francis's major Pontifical documents, Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez, suddenly promoted to a major diocese in Argentina and removed from the face to face intimate informal inner circle of the Pope in the Vatican which is the way Francis reportedly makes most of his decisions?

-According to Vatican expert Ed Condon the "inner circle's monopoly is strengthened by Francis's impatience with long meetings. He prefers brief personal chats and informal briefings." ( Catholic Herald, "Five years on: the paradox of Francis's papacy," March 8, 2017)

-According to a Gloria.tv headline in a February podcast from the Spectator Canon lawyer and Vatican expert Condon revealed "Parolin's Campaign to be Pope Desperate after China Fiasco."

-Parolin who apparently controls the Vatican communications apparatus it appears had a statement issued that said Francis stands behind his China disaster while the Pope told Chinese hero Cardinal Joseph Zen another narrative counter to the statement and has never personally confirmed the Vatican statement.

-Zen has rebuked Parolin calling him a "man of little faith" and Francis has not come to the Secretariat of State's defense.

-According to en.news and Choosing-him.blogspot Vatican expert Condon in the Spectator podcast "refers to Parolin's" failure of Francis's "Apostlic Journey to Chile" which is the biggest public relations disaster of the papacy which at least one commentator has said smelled like a booby trap.

Francis probably is not too happy with Parolin over the Chile disaster, as spoken about by Condon, whether it was a trap or not set by the Secretariat of State who is reported to have the ambition to be the next pope.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Is Pope Francis a Practical Atheist who is promoting Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit according to Pope John Paul II?

Pope Francis's Amoris Laetitia theology of conscience as the supreme tribunal can, to some extent, be summed up as promoting "the person who claims to have a 'right' to persist in evil-in any sin at all-and who thus rejects Redemption... as it were an impenetrability of conscience."

Many who follow Amoris Laetitia may apparently be rejecting Redemption.

Catholics who are open to the redefinition of “mercy” to mean the conscience is the supreme tribunal may cease to be Christians because they deny that the Incarnate God-man Jesus Christ died to save us from our sin. The conscience as supreme tribunal denies mercy because if there is no objective sin to be forgiven and one doesn’t have by grace the power to overcome sin then the cross of Christ is emptied of its power.

Pope John Paul II in DOMINUM ET VIVIFICANTEM On the Holy Spirit in the Life of the Church
and the World said:


"Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, then, is the sin committed by the person who claims to have a 'right' to persist in evil-in any sin at all-and who thus rejects Redemption. One closes oneself up in sin, thus making impossible one's conversion, and consequently the remission of sins, which one considers not essential or not important for one's life. This is a state of spiritual ruin, because blasphemy against the Holy Spirit does not allow one to escape from one's self-imposed imprisonment and open oneself to the divine sources of the purification of consciences and of the remission of sins."

"The action of the Spirit of truth, which works toward salvific 'convincing concerning sin,' encounters in a person in this condition an interior resistance, as it were an impenetrability of conscience... Pope Pius XII had already declared that 'the sin of the century is the loss of the sense of sin,'186 and this loss goes hand in hand with the 'loss of the sense of God.' In the Exhortation just mentioned we read: 'In fact, God is the origin and the supreme end of man, and man carries in himself a divine seed. Hence it is the reality of God that reveals and illustrates the mystery of man. It is therefore vain to hope that there will take root a sense of sin against man and against human values, if there is no sense of offense against God, namely the true sense of sin.'"
[http://w2.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_18051986_dominum-et-vivificantem.html]

Francis's apparent "loss of the sense of sin" and the "sense of offense against God" seems to point towards a type of practical atheism on his part.

The Catholic News Agency (CNA) headline on December 7, 2013 at the beginning of the pontificate of Pope Francis summarized his talk that day and his whole non-transcendent papacy in which he ironically spoke of 'practical atheism' as neglect of human dignity without talking about "the loss of the sense of sin" and the "sense of offense against God":

"Pope [Francis]: Neglect of human dignity causes 'practical atheism'"

In the CNA article Francis says "This false model of man and society effects a practical atheism (by) denying, de facto, the Word of God that says ' let us make man in our image," but then when speaking of  "rights," "dignity," and a "throw-away culture" never mentions "the loss of a sense of sin" or the "sense of offense against God" or the transcendent. 

The "Word of God" is used as a means to talk of the non-transcendent "material rights and dignity of the human person."

The Argentinain Pope's talk and, for the most part, his papacy has shown a "indifference to... the transcendent."

Pope John Paul II in a General Audience on April 1999, on the other hand, explained that practical atheism is "indifference to... the transcendent. The Polish Pope said:

"The contemporary era has devastating forms of 'theoretical' and 'practical' atheism. Secularism... with its indifference to ultimate questions and... the transcendent." (Vatican.va>hf_jp_ii_ 14041999)

Francis's primary focus on only earthly human dignity, it appears, could be a form of practical atheism or secularism.

The Pope rarely focuses on "ultimate questions and... the transcendent" such as heaven and hell as well as the Last Judgment, but almost always on non-transcendent issues that tend to bring leftist pro-abortion politicians into power such as radical environmental issues, leftist economic policies and unlimited immigration.

This form of practical atheism has brought about the Pope's seamless garment teachings which we will see appears to be a form of Kantian practical atheism.

The upcoming abortion holocaust in Ireland can, to some extent, be blamed on the Irish bishops following Pope Francis's seamless garment "pro-life" teachings that equates killing innocent human life with pro-abortion politician issues such as the death penalty, leftist economic policies and radical ecology policies.

Even after the abortion referendum was overwhelming lost, to some extent, due to the seamless garment focus as well as inaction by Francis and the Irish bishops, Dublin Bishop Diarmuil Martin had the gall to call for more seamless garment Kantian practical atheism. Martin said:

"Pro-life means being alongside... economic deprivation, homelessness and marginalization." (Crux, "After abortion loss, Irish prelates look to pope's vision of 'pro-life," May 27, 2017)

The seamless garment teachings of Francis and the Irish bishops, to some extent, can be blamed for the coming death of thousands even millions of babies

This teachings come about because of their conscious or unconscious Kantian practical atheism which is this world materialistic and tends to exclude the eternal.

The practical atheist Immanuel Kant while not explicitly denying the existence of God said:

"God is not a being outside me but merely a thought within me." (Fr. Stanley Jaki, Angels, Apes and Men, page 10)

Below is a summary of the type of Kantian practical atheism which appears to be part of the thinking of Francis and the Irish bishops.

In this part of the academic article "Categorical imperatives impair Christianity in culture" by scholar Douglas A. Ollivant it is explained that Kantian practical atheism infiltrated Catholicism and gives a background, to some extent, to why the protection of the unborn ended in Ireland.(July 20, 2010, Religion and Liberty, Volume 13, Number 4):

"In his must-read Christian Faith and Modern Democracy, Robert Kraynak introduces us to the concept of 'Kantian Christianity.'  Kraynak claims that the 'Kantian influence on modern Christianity is … deep and pervasive.'” 

 "What he means is that Christian thinkers no longer speak about culture and politics in terms of the more enduring principles of moral virtue, law, and the common good but now focus on social justice, understood as solely the immediate, material rights and dignity of the human person..."


"The rights and dignity of each person replaces moral and theological virtues: rational and spiritual perfection. Further, an emphasis on personal autonomy or personal identity diminishes long-established Christian teachings about the dependence of the creature on the Creator, original sin, grace, and a natural law through which human beings may share or “participate” in eternal law..."

"But the most flagrant use of categorical imperatives in our current political culture deals with life issues. It must be stated up front that no practicing Christian disputes that life is one of the most precious gifts that God has given to us. The second century “Letter to Diognetus” bears testimony to early Christians not taking part in the Roman custom of 'exposing [or 'discarding'] their offspring' – the preferred method of pagan infanticide for the weak or unwanted."


"But to speak of a “culture of life” – if used simply to express a “seamless garment” univocal defense against any taking of life – has become a categorical imperative. For instance, the core of what we might call the “Bernadin project” is that Christians (in this case Catholics) must dogmatically oppose and fight against any early termination of human life. But this understanding fails to see that there may be an important, and even a critical, difference between a true culture of life and a “culture of merely life.” The former taking into account the authentic existence of human beings within not only the material realm, but also the immaterial, the spiritual; the latter limiting human existence to the breathing of the air in this temporal world only."


 "To quote at length from Kraynak:

'Proclaiming a right to life easily turns into the claim that biological existence is sacred or that mere life has absolute value, regardless of whether it is the life of an innocent unborn child, or the life of a heinous criminal. And the claim that life is a “right” diminishes the claim that life is a “gift” from God: How can a gift be a right? Proclaiming a right to life eventually leads to the mistaken idea of a “seamless garment of life” that is indistinguishable from complete pacifism or a total ban on taking life, including animal life, even for just and necessary causes. It also makes one forget that the good life, not to mention the afterlife, is a greater good than merely being alive in the present world – an unintended but significant depreciation of Christian otherworldliness.'"
This "depreciation of Christian otherworldliness" appears in certain teachings in Amoris Laetitia which are exactly the opposite of Church doctrine in Familiaris Consortio as well as "explicitly atheist" and deny the existence of objective truth according to Veritatis Splendor.

 Father Raymond J. de Souza said:


 "Veritatis Splendor, entitled 'Lest the Cross of Christ Be Emptied of Its Power,' warns precisely against the view that the demands of the moral life are too difficult and cannot be lived with the help of God’s grace. Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia appears to be exactly what St. John Paul II had in mind in writing Veritatis Splendor."

The Pope's semi-official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano wrote:


"There are complex situations where the choice of living “as brothers and sisters” becomes humanly impossible and give rise to greater harm (see AL, note 329)."[http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/5346/a_malta_laetitia.aspx]



Pope John Paul II in Veritatis Splendor wrote:

"Certain currents of modern thought have gone so far as to exalt freedom to such an extent that it becomes an absolute... This is the direction taken by doctrines which have lost the sense of the transcendent or which are explicitly atheist. The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment which hands down categorical and infallible decisions about good and evil... But in this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear."[http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/5346/a_malta_laetitia.aspx]

Pope John Paul II in Familiaris Consortio wrote:


"This means, in practice, that when, for serious reasons, such as for example the children's upbringing, a man and a woman cannot satisfy the obligation to separate, they take on themselves the duty to live in complete continence, that is, by abstinence from the acts proper to married couples."[http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/5346/a_malta_laetitia.aspx]

Pope Francis and the papal inner circle appear to have redefined mortal sin and adultery in a way that is contrary to the 2,000 year infallibly doctrine of the Catholic Church.

They redefine adultery as a "irregular relationship" and say mortal sin is not mortal sin because of the ultimacy of conscience.


 This redefinition of Catholic conscience tells the murderer, rapist, sex abuser, the person in adultery or anyone in objective mortal sin that they are not in mortal sin if they are at "peace" with it, if the sinful behavior is "humanly impossible" to change, "if they can't change their sinful behavior" or don't know it is wrong. 


Under these conditions, they say those in objective mortal sin may receive Holy Communion without forming their conscience and changing their sinful behavior.


 Their redefinition of conscience is wrong. As St. Thomas said "An erroneous conscience may bind, but it does not excuse" as the great moral philosopher Ralph McInerny wrote:


 "I think murder is wrong, but make up your own mind...It is pretty clear that we do not really accept the ultimacy of conscience in this way. That the rapist and the one raped have different views on the morality of rape does not much interest us when we consider the kind of deed it is."


"Each agent is obligated to follow his conscience, but this is not tantamount to saying that every agent has a well formed conscience. It is erroneous to believe that theft is permitted. It is wrong to hold that adultery is all right...If it is erroneous, we will be interested in his changing it. Indeed, we often prevent people from acting on their real or alleged views when those views are erroneous. Professional thieves are not considered to have an interesting and defensible concept of private property. As Thomas put it, an erroneous conscience may bind, but it does not excuse." (Ralph McInerny, "Ethica Thomistica," 1982, 1997, page 110-111)


Carl Olson wrote that Amoris Laetitia moves Nietzsche-like beyond even invincible ignorance or a erroreous conscience to the depravity of making the individual conscience a "supreme tribunal of moral judgement... in this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear":

"Amoris Laetitia, especially chapter 8... As Dr. E. Christian Brugger
argued in these pages back in April 2016, remarking on AL 305: 'In this passage, the German bishops get all they want':"



"But the passage does not presume that the sinner is in invincible ignorance or that the pastor supposes that. The passage supposes that people who are objectively committing adultery can know they are 'in God’s grace', and that their pastor can know it too... The pastor must help them find peace in their situation, and assist them to receive “the Church’s help”, which (note 351 makes clear) includes 'the help of the sacraments... '"

"Pastors should help them discern if their situation is acceptable, even if it is 'objectively' sinful, so they can return to the sacraments."
[http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/5346/a_malta_laetitia.aspx]


 
Every Pope and saint in the history of the Catholic Church would have rejected the above passage of Amoris Laetitia.

Every Pope and saint in history would say every Catholic is obliged to have a well formed conscience and have a firm amendment not to commit mortal sin in order to receive Holy Communion. 


The infallible Church doctrine of Trent teaches that God gives everyone the grace to repent and overcome sinful behavior. 

These Catholic Church doctrines can't be redefined, even by the Pope, because they are part of Revelation.


Catholics who are open to the redefinition of "mercy" to mean the conscience is the supreme tribunal may cease to be Christians because they deny that the Incarnate God-man Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins.

Pope John Paul II's Veritatis Splendor warns against this passage of Amoris Laetitia in the third part called "Lest the Cross of Christ Be Emptied of its Power."

The conscience as supreme tribunal denies mercy because if there is no objective sin to be forgiven and one doesn't have by grace the power to overcome sin then the cross of Christ is emptied of its power.

Pope Francis and the papal inner circle who are ostracizing the Dubia Cardinals for questioning the parts of Amoris Laetitia that reject Veritatis Splendor are apparently rejecting the cross of Christ and saying it has lost its power.

They talk a lot about atheistic secular issues and social work, but rarely or never about life after the death of the body, salvation and damnation.

Francis and his inner circle say Jesus had authority because he was (past tense) a servant, but rarely or never that Jesus had authority because he is (eternal now) God.

One reason that they rarely or never talk about the four last things is that apparently in making individual conscience supreme, they deny truth, the authority of God and implicitly the existence of God.

Pope John Paul II said in Veritatis Splendor:

"Certain currents of modern thought... are explicitly atheist. The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment... about good and evil... in this way the inescapable claims of truth disappear."


This may be a valid question to ask Pope Francis and the papal inner circle who promote these redefinitions:

Do you believe that the conscience is the supreme tribunal or do you believe in the Incarnation and salvation, as every Pope and saint in history has believed, since you appear to deny the very words of Jesus Christ and his Church that He died to save us from our sins by your theology of conscience?


 John Paul II taught that anyone who thinks as you do on the individual conscience being a supreme tribunal is a "explicit atheist."
