Last week, Catholics in the pews received Pope Francis democratic ballot to vote on Catholic Doctrine. I received mine via email last week. I haven't been able to muster up the stamina to open it.
I do not see what benefit could be derived from this exercise.
You don't have to be an astronaut to figure out what's going down.
Read America Magazine or the National Catholic Reporter and weep for the souls being misled by them. Turn on the secular news. It is painfully obvious his people have been robbed of catechesis and they are a deep state of diabolical disorientation.
He's a smart enough guy to know how we got into this state. When apostates applied to our seminaries, the leadership of the Church refused to make a judgement on how apostasy affects the people. They refused to manage and spank them. The apostates sucked all of the oxygen out of the souls of their people.
Another generation of Catholics are starving to death and the pope is fluffing the pillows on the death beds and giving them a survey monkey to vote on doctrine.
Given the sneakiness and deception in his synod, given the messages Pope Francis has conveyed about the new church he is building where priests veil moral theology under 50 shades of ambiguity and deception, the doctrinal survey monkey is being caricatured as a vote to tell Pope Francis what to scratch out of the Catechism.
This individual memorializes the interesting perspective Pope Francis has conveyed on rebuilding our doctrinal belief system as a democracy.
She reports that the Pope supported Slovakia's referendum against gay marriage but 'thankfully' his efforts did not influence 5.4 million Catholics in Slovakia, and that she hoped this sends a message to Pope Francis that he can go back to being reasonable on 'social issues'.
You take a poll and the people tell the Pope what kind of sex should be accepted as virtue. The church where the beliefs come from the serpent under the feet of the Ark of the Covenant.
When did the moral theology of the Catholic Church become a 'social issue' that is voted upon?
Oh wait. I know. Pope Francis' synod.
I read something the other day from a bishop who recently visited Pope Francis. The journalist asked how Pope Francis was holding up. The bishop said he suffers greatly because the things he is saying and doing are so misunderstood.
HE suffers greatly.
But he has declared he and his administration are going to keep on doing it and will institute the tin ear to the cries of his people exposing the suffering of the family and church.
I'm going to forward the Pope's democratic ballot to the Nuncio with the following message: What is the purpose of this disturbing democratic ballot on doctrine? If Pope Francis doesn't know what's wrong with the Church, why doesn't he call his doctrinal referendum 'good morning mapplethorpe' and pass it out to his see of bishops?
Did you ever think you'd see Fr. Z talking about resistance?
The pope has already done something so grave, it merits resistance. The synod, and all the buffoonery around it, rises to this level.
I'm big on prevention.
I don't think it's good to wait until irreparable harm has been done to a generation of souls. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is the time we can make a difference.
Frankly, the antics at the synod made the Pope an enemy of the family. He didn't do himself any favors following the synod. All things are possible with God and we are all praying, but I don't see how he could recover at this juncture.
Christ's Church hasn't survived catechetical disasters with the consensus of a majority.
We just need to set off loud sirens, load our bows with the flaming arrows of truth and send them high into the air.
It's going down baby! It's going down!
