Francis has Betrayed China's Underground Church; & Might he Betray Hong Kong?

Francis's China deal is a cold-blooded betrayal.

Francis is appointing Communist regime operatives as bishops who de facto endorse the Chinese two-child policy of murdering of the unborn babies.

He is cold-bloodedly endorsing the murder of millions of unborn Chinese babies and the betrayal of China's underground Church.

Cardinal Joseph Zen before Christmas said:

"China's underground Church... feels betrayed."
Francis's Vatican has "demanded the retirement of one bishop and the demotion of another" so that Communist totalitarian controlled state bishops can get control of the underground Chinese Church.

The National Review's Michael Dougherty reported what this Vatican betrayal means to the Chinese Catholics in quoting a Chinese underground pewsitter witness to the Communist regime's reign of terror:

"Everybody, and I mean everybody, knows someone who was murdered, or tortured, or disappeared to defend the principle that was just abandoned."
(National Review, "The Vatican's Deal with China: What to make of Cardinal Parolin's Diplomacy," January 23, 2017)

Cardinal Joseph Zen, bishop emeritus of Hong Kong in 2016 said the Francis "diplomacy" is like betraying Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus to the murderous Herod.

Cardinal Zen said:

"[T]oday would our diplomats advise Joseph to go and humbly beg for dialogue with Herod!"

He betrayed the Chinese underground Church and might he, now, betray Hong Kong?

After all he wants "to go to [Communist] Beijing." On November 29, the South China Morning Post reported that Francis did not "side" with the freedom fighter against the totalitarian regime:

"'It’s not only Hong Kong, there are various problematic situations that I am unable to evaluate at the moment. I respect peace and I ask for peace for all these countries that have problems, Spain too,' he said."

'It is better to put things in perspective and to call for dialogue, for peace, so that problems can be resolved. And finally, I would like to go to Beijing, I love China.'"

Here is a suggestion for a post. Does Burke think that Pope Francis is an extremist.

Burke says that all who doubt Francis is pope are extremists.

But at Panama Youth day, Francis told the crowd, as they looked at a live image of Pope Benedict: There is the Pope, Benedict, say hello to the Pope!

"all who doubt Francis is Pope are extremists". And exactly when did it become "bad" to be an extremist? As in extremely Catholic? Back in the dau, the Church had another name for them.....Saints!

It is never extreme to stand with the truth, but it is always cowardly to not do so.

@MEwbank:

Especially as Christ told us, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6.

See Miss Barnhardt on point today. Paraphrasing Augustine: “The Truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend HIM. Let HIM loose; HE will defend HIMSELF.

And in the opposite corner, Bergoglio, who’s not too big on truth, and his boss, the Father of Lies.

Time to choose up sides.

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
