Is Pope Francis's Theology a mix of Fascist Leftist Peronism & the Modernist "German... Spirit of the People, the Volkgeist [&]... Pre-Christian beliefs, half-baked Catechism precepts, and Outright Superstitions"?

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.

Remeseira says 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 …

Why is Pope Francis Promoting Intrinsic Evil & does he believe God wills Evil?

Why is the unscholarly Pope Francis, who thinks a third rate thinkers such as the confused and almost unreadable Postmodernist Michael de Certeau is "the greatest theologian for today," promoting intrinsically evil acts?

One possibility is because he was "confused and mislead" into thinking Amoris Leatitia is "Thomist" and orthodox by the heretical scholar Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez and the "great theologian" Cardinal Christoph Schonborn.

Latin American Catholic philosopher Carlos A. Casanova shows that dissenter Tony Mifsud and Archbishop Fernandez both of whom "irrationally" misuse Thomism are bedfellows following the lead of Fr. Bernard Haring in dissent from Catholic moral doctrine:

"Mifsud... [i]n p.73 he quotes Bernard Haring holding that the fruit of the II Vatican Council was the spirit of dissent among theologians towards the "dictates of the official Church."

"... Victor Manuel Fernandez's con…

Is Pope Francis a Nihilist who doesn't believe in Truth?

The Catholic Thing wrote that "Francis made a startling claim" that appears to deny objective truth:

"We must be careful not to fall into the temptation of making idols of certain abstract truths."

Pope Francis apparently got this terminology about "abstract truths" from a Jesuit theologian Michael de Certeau who wrote:

"In history everything begins with the gesture of setting aside, of putting together, of transforming certain classified objects... It exiles them from practice [praxis] in order to confer upon them the status of "abstract" objects of knowledge..."

"... [T]he historical discipline... designate[s] the "that" as a "fact" is only a way of naming what cannot be understood."
( Michael de Certeau's book: The Writing of History, pages 72-73 and 84)

De Certeau is a nihilist who Francis considers to "be the greatest theologian for …
