Breaking News: Fr. Lombardi confirms Pope Francis said Humanae Vitae can be used as toilet paper.

Fr. Lombardi (when is he 'retiring?!!) affirmed that Pope Francis was condoning condoms and birth control pills to unburden the world of children with birth defects.

Fr. Lombardi told Vatican Radio today, “The contraceptive or condom, in particular cases of emergency or gravity, could be the object of discernment in a serious case of conscience. This is what the Pope said.”

According to Lombardi, the pope spoke of “the possibility of taking recourse to contraception or condoms in cases of emergency or special situations. He is not saying that this possibility is accepted without discernment, indeed, he said clearly that it can be considered in cases of special urgency.”

He said people can't contradict infallible teaching without thinking about it first, but if you think about it and you come to the conclusion it's an emergency, it's perfectly acceptable to use birth control pills and condoms.

Read the rest of Lombardi's statement and it becomes perfectly clear that this error, deception and malfeasance qualify for a canonical trial, IMHO. This is as bad as it gets.

The CDF needs to point out Pope Francis' theological errors, as soon as possible.


I've read a few places, like our beloved Fr. Z and Church Militant FB feed that this is somehow meaningless because off the cuff remarks are beyond his authority.

With all due respect, of course catechized people know the Holy Father's statements do not change Church teaching, but he is most certainly brainwashing our children into errors that seriously impair their ability to make choices that lead them to salvation. People who do not know this are uncatechized or faithful who have had the misfortune of encountering malfeasance of a Catholic priest or teacher. They are in our homes, family, community. Making statements like this and then thinking you've fulfilled your baptismal duty in this matter is underwhelming.

I'm not sure which is worse: these awful statements from the Pope or the words of the Father Z's of this world saying it is no big deal.

Perception is everything, so if people hear this garbage coming from a Pope's mouth they think it is dogma. Father Z, et al, should be ashamed.

Fr. Z and Church Militant are apologists for Pope Francis. This is a mistake and mis-directed charity. As a result of the Pope's statements many more Catholics will be misled and fall into sin. Catholic media's first obligation is to be subservient to the truth not some misguided cleric of whatever rank.

Fr. Z is damage control. His job is to keep everyone calm amid bombs being dropped.
