Pope Francis

I will always be Catholic, however, that does not mean I turn a blind eye toward what is happening in the Church.  Mainstream Catholic media will tend to minimize any criticism of the Pope and the Bishops because, to be frank, their livelihood depends on not ruffling the feathers of their primary information sources.  But by also reading more “rogue” sources you can get a more complete picture of the state of the Church.

So let me explain why I believe Pope Francis has lost all moral credibility, even though he is the rightful head of the Catholic Church.

  1. His refusal to respond to credible charges made by Abp. Vigano on his awareness of high-level Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops involvement and cover-up of the sexual abuse scandal.
  2. Long awaited McCarrick Report was a travesty. The 2-year wait simply gave temporary cover to the USCCB and bishops worldwide in hopes we would all forget.  Typical Pope Francis move.
  3. Allowed the Pachamama idolatry scandal at St. Peter’s in the Vatican – October 2019 – LifeSiteNews around the 8:54 minute mark.  See 2 Sam 24:12 & following.
    • Oct 4: attended and act of idolatrous worship of the pagan goddess Pachamama in the Vatican Gardens.  He participated by blessing a wooden image of the Pachamama.
    • Oct 7: the idol of Pachamama was placed in front of the main altar at St. Peter’s, whereupon Pope Francis joined in prayers and the procession of the idol to the synod hall
    • Oct 25: a new idol of Pachamama replaced the old one which was thrown into the Tiber river by irate Catholics
    • Oct 27: in the closing Mass for the synod, Pope Francis accepted a bowl used in the idolatrous worship and placed it on the altar
  4. Blocked the USCCB from taking positive action to request opening McCarrick files (2019) and more recently, taking action against abortion-promoting politicians
  5. Greets and embraces abortionists and criminals while refusing to meet with the Dubia Cardinals on Amoris Laetitia confusion
  6. Assigned Abp. Paglia to dismantle the Pontifical Academy for Life and the John Paul II Institute, removing all conservative pro-life professors.
  7. Supports same-sex civil unions in ‘apocalyptically scandalous’ interview – LifeSite (lifesitenews.com)  (9/17/21)
  8. Praises pro-abortion President and backs communion for pro-abort politicians – LifeSite (lifesitenews.com)  (9/21/21)
  9. Pope rips EWTN ‘work of the devil’ | News Headlines | Catholic Culture  (9/21/21) – He clearly does not believe a Pope should ever be criticized. But he has no problem ripping into those whose viewpoint differs from his.
    • Evidently linking such criticism to support for the Tridentine liturgy, the Pope went on to speak of “the decision to stop the automatism of the ancient rite.” He said that when young priests seek permission to celebrate the Latin Mass, it is “a phenomenon that indicates we are going backward.”
    • Earlier in the exchange, Pope Francis had spoken out against a tendency to “look back to the past: to seek security.” He said: “This is the evil of this moment—namely, to seek the path in rigidity and clericalism, which are two perversions.”

  10. Promotes Globalism and calls for One World Government. Zealous cheerleader of The Great Reset and World Economic Forum.
  11. Pushes Covid-19 vaccine mandates, contrary to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, despite the use of aborted fetal cells in their production and/or testing.
  12. Promoter of uncontrolled immigration
  13. Numerus financial scandals at the Vatican
  14. Demolished no small number of Catholic truths in the name of dialogue with heretics and idolaters
