Why did Taylor Marshall Chicken Out in Questioning Bp. Schneider on the Bellarmine teaching on Heretical Popes Ceasing to be Pope?

- Updated March 2, 2020

On November 15, 2019, Taylor Marshall said "Bellarmine says when anyone is a manifest heretic even the pope he ceases to be a member of the Church and they can no longer hold their office "

Why did Marshall chicken out in questioning Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Doctor of the Church St. Robert Bellarmine's teaching on heretic popes ceasing to be pope in his podcast with Bishop Athanasius Schneider on the 28th of February?

On November 15, Marshall and the contributing editor of The American Spectator George Neumayr who is a best-selling author and former editor of the Catholic World Report apparently called on the Catholic cardinals to convene in order to judge if Francis is a "manifest heretic" which could mean he "self vacated the Chair of St. Peter" and is no longer the pope.

In Marshall's popular YouTube channel the two declare what "should happen":

"[Neumayr said Doctor of the Church St.] Robert Bellarmine said members of the Church have the right and duty to resist a bad pope... It is the cardinals who have the power to confront the pope and say do you actually support the teachings of the Church. If you don't then you self vacated the Chair of St. Peter and we can move to elect a new pope... "

"... [Marshall said] Bellermine says when anyone is a manifest heretic even the pope he ceases to be a member of the Church and they can no longer hold their office... It seems to me that that would require a ecclesiastical decree... You would have to have cardinals make this decree... "

"... [Neumayr said] It's a case of declaration. They are simply declaring what Francis himself has done through his actions and statements. He would in fact have self vacated the Chair of St. Peter then the cardinals would simply come in and declare that happened and move to fill the Chair with a new pope. We are at that stage when I know that should happen."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and for the laity to demand that the cardinals convene an imperfect council to judge if Francis is a manifest heretic.

It seems as if Marshall might actually reading your blog since, until now, he has seemed to take a posture of 'papalotry' that would preclude saying anything that would echo Cardinal Bellarmine.

"... [Marshall said] Bell[a]rmine says when ANYONE is a manifest heretic even the pope THEY cease to be a member of the Church and THEY can no longer hold their office..."

The fact that even bona fide Catholic trads are using the "singular 'they'" shows just how insidious this Marxist gender-weapon is.

Excellent observation.

We must spread the word on our false Pope. I just posted this article on FB.

Read where Innocent 3rd was a layman when he was elected Pope. Perhaps that might be the road to travel in the current state of Vatican affairs.

marshall and Schneider are shameless flip floppers for their careers. No faith, only desire for praise and money...

Francis/Bergoglio is the Occupant of the Chair.

I wouldn't stand to close to this Claimant of the See of Peter. There's already been lightning strikes.

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…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."

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


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…
