Outstanding piece by William Kilpatrick on the Bergoglian Antipapacy – the obvious is being acknowledged

I hope Mr. Kilpatrick doesn’t mind if I cross-post in full. The piece is so good that it is impossible to block quote. Do click over to his site, and check out his books on islam. Outstanding stuff. -AB


The arguments in his defense don’t stand the test of time

In the wake of Bishop Joseph Strickland’s removal by Francis, the question of Francis’ own status has resurfaced. Is he really the pope? Or is he an imposter or an anti-pope or something worse?

When the question was initially raised years ago, quite a few Catholic theologians and commentators came to Francis’ defense. They quoted scripture, canon law, and past theologians, and they seemed quite confident that they were right and that critics of Francis didn’t know what they were talking about.

But, as the years passed and as Francis’ appointments, actions, and pronouncements became more obviously out of line with Catholic teaching, many of the arguments in defense of his legitimacy began to wear thin.

One frequently-used argument was that the although Francis seemed to flirt with heresy, he never went over the line because…well, because, as pope, he was being protected by the Holy Spirit from falling into grave error. As Jeffrey Mirus observed in one of his columns, “the Holy Spirit through the charism of infallibility, makes it impossible for a pope to bind the whole Church to error.”

But this is a circular argument. It assumes as true the thing that has to be proven—namely, that Francis is really the pope. But, as Francis continues to rewrite the faith along heterodox lines, Catholics will be forced to reconsider the role of the Holy Spirit in all this. If Francis is really the pope it must mean that the Holy Spirit does not provide nearly as much guidance to popes as Catholics have supposed. If Francis is really the pope, it means that the Holy Spirit gives popes much more leeway than many of us had imagined.

The oft-used argument that there have been several bad popes (about thirty) has the same effect. If the Spirit permits bad popes to be elected, then it must mean that the Cardinal-electors have more freedom to make a mess than is commonly thought.

But if the Holy Spirit permits the election of bad popes, why are we so sure that he would prevent the election of a false pope? Does he ensure that the majority of cardinals will be immune to deception or self-deception or to political pressure—or blackmail?

As you might have noticed, the argument that the Holy Spirit protects popes from serious error cuts both ways. On the one hand, it can be used to argue that popes will be protected from serious doctrinal errors; on the other hand, it can be used, to argue that if a ‘pope’ is leading people into serious sin and error, there is a good chance that he’s not the pope and is therefore not under the protection of the Holy Spirit.

As it happens, Dr. Mirus admits the point. He acknowledges that If Francis is not the legitimate pope, then the question of the Church’s teaching authority does not come into play because “any errors such a ‘pope’ might teach would not really have been authoritatively taught. Thus, Christ’s promise to be with the Church will not have failed…”

But the main concern of Mirus and other defenders of Francis’ legitimacy is that the “not pope” argument undermines the credibility of the Church’s teaching authority.

At this point, however it seems that the faith of many Catholics will be more badly shaken should Francis turn out to be the true pope. How, it will be asked, could God allow his Church to be ruled by a man whose teachings contradict what Christ taught? Why does God permit the confusion and demoralization that Francis has wrought? Why does Francis bear so much animosity toward good and faithful Catholics like Bishop Strickland?

The possibility that Francis is the pope does far more damage to the credibility of the Church than the possibility that he is not. If Francis continues to introduce novel and divisive changes to Church teachings on an almost weekly basis, then the credibility of the Church and the papacy will decline rapidly. If, on the other hand, he is revealed to be an imposter intent on subverting the Church, then much of the current turmoil would be seen in a new light. It would be seen not as the result of some inherent flaw in the Church, but as the result of a deliberate plot to destroy the Church.

 If Francis is actually an enemy of the Church, then it makes sense that he would favor harmful innovations—that he would be open to same-sex blessings, that he would participate in pagan rituals, that he would put the John Paul II Academy for Marriage and the Family in the hands of a man who would not be welcome in the homes of most Catholic families, that he would put another such man in charge of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, that he would issue a motu proprio calling for a radical paradigm shift in Catholic theology and on and on. All of these innovations have sown confusion in the Church. But that, it seems, is what they were intended to do.

If Francis were really a false prophet, then it would be understandable that he thinks conversion is undesirable, that he tells seminarians to forgive all sin in the confessional even if there is no repentance, and that he maintains that sexual sins are nothing to worry about.

If for some reason—an invalid resignation by Pope Benedict, a rigged papal election, or evidence that Bergoglio had no intention of guarding the Catholic faith—it becomes evident that Francis is not a valid pope, then many Catholics would breathe a sigh of relief. If Francis/Bergoglio is an antipope then the promises of Christ and the protection of the Holy Spirit do not apply to him. Catholics would be free to ignore his new doctrines, to resist him, and above all, to better understand the trial that has been visited on the Church.

Some think that the antipope/false prophet accusations against Francis are reckless, but scripture teaches us that at some point in time, something of this nature is exactly what we should expect.

In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus refers to many “false Christs and false prophets (Mt. 24: 11, 24: 24). Likewise, the epistles speak of “many antichrists” (1 Jn. 2: 18) and many “false prophets” (1 Jn. 4: 1). Moreover, these false prophets are as likely to come from within the fold as from without. They “come to you in sheep’s clothing” (Mt. 7: 15) “disguising themselves as apostles of Christ” (2 Cor. 11: 13 ).

How are we to identify the false prophets? By the degree that they deviate from the gospel. St. Paul warns the Corinthians against those who preach “another Jesus than the one we preach…” or “a different gospel from the one you accepted…” (2 Cor. 11: 4). Likewise, Paul warns the Galatians against those who “want to pervert the gospel of Christ” (Gal. 1: 7).

Is anyone perverting the gospel of Christ today? We don’t have to look very far for an answer. This summer, Fr. Antonio Spadaro, SJ, a close friend and trusted advisor to Francis gave a sermon in which he described Jesus as “angry and insensitive,” “mocking and disrespectful,” and “blinded by nationalism and theological rigor.” In commenting on Jesus’s encounter with the Canaanite women, Spadaro portrays Jesus as one who is unable to transcend the prejudices of his time and place.

This interpretation of scripture was an obvious perversion of the gospel of Christ, yet Francis did nothing to correct Spadaro. Instead, he promoted his friend to a curial position—Under-Secretary of the Dicastery for Culture and Education.

As usually happens in Rome these days, those who uphold the faith (such as Bishop Strickland) are given the boot, while those who undermine it (Spadaro, Fernandez, Martin, Paglia) are praised and promoted. Meanwhile, those who scandalize the faithful are protected or promoted or sometimes both (McCarrick, Ricca, Zanchetta, Rupnik, Cocopalmerio, etc.).

There is a certain type of person who loves to surround himself with flamboyant rule-breakers who delight in saying daring things and in joking about sacred things.

Francis seems to be one of those types. One of his biographers reports that he used to delight in teaching dirty words to his young nephew. Now that he’s pope he has to be more careful about what he says. But he can still keep company with others who push the boundaries, spread gossip, and laugh at the “backwardness” of less sophisticated people—the kind who actually take their faith seriously.

The more one knows about Francis’ favorites, the more one is reminded of St. Paul’s warning: “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings” (2 Tim. 4: 3).

One is also reminded of this passage about the second coming of the Lord: “That day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship” (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4).

“Itching ears”? “The rebellion”? The man of lawlessness”? Paul could well be writing about our own times. Many in the Church seem to be itching for news of the latest break from tradition. And the rebellious spirit seems to have infected a whole generation of young and not-so-young people. What are they rebelling against? Mainly against the law: laws against violence, vandalism, and looting, but also against natural law and revealed law. Numerous polls show that a majority of Catholics now disagree with the Church on abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism and the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Many think that matters of right and wrong are simply a matter of personal choice. Each person, in short, becomes a law unto himself.

The irony is, we are encouraged in this lawlessness by many Church leaders. They no longer teach about right and wrong or good and evil, but instead they champion “relativism,” “subjectivism,” “contextualism” and “new paradigms.” But, of course, many young people correctly understand that these fancy words are simply another way of saying “Do as thou wilst”—the maxim attributed to occultist, Aleister Crowley.

Francis and his followers are attempting to destroy the Church and to replace it with a “new paradigm” Church more in touch with the changing times. At this point, that seems fairly clear.

Admittedly, however, many don’t see it that way. They maintain that nothing has really changed, and that criticizing Francis will only harm the credibility of the Church. Besides, they will say, no one has the right to judge the pope (which, taken literally, is a nonsensical proposition); and, what’s more, they will say, “the whole issue is above your pay-grade.”

Moreover, they will add “There’s nothing anyone can do about it. God will take care of everything in his own good time. So, shush up!”

Yes, God has unlimited time to fix things, but our time is short and in that short time God wants us to make the best of our time. Yes, God has the power to make all things new, but as Pope Leo XIII wrote in Sapientiae Christianae: “In His loving kindness He would assign to us a share in obtaining and applying the fruits of salvation…”

As St. Paul taught, Christ gives us a share in his work. If Paul were alive today, would he just keep quiet about the harm being done to the Church? Would Peter or John or Matthew?

God will eventually resolve everything, but in the meantime what do you tell a mother whose 14-year-old daughter says she wants to become a boy and that Sister Sally at school says the Church will bless whatever choice she makes?

To top it all off, the girl hands her mother a booklet by Fr. James Martin and says: “Here, this will explain everything. And, look, Pope Francis wrote the Introduction!”

 We are told that eventually God will sort it all out. In the meantime, both Church and society are rapidly spinning out of control.

Francis’ (sic) Christmas 2019 Concert Included Pachamama Catechesis (Video)

The Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education sponsered a December 14 charity Christmas concert in the Paul VI audience hall. Francis (sic) gave a prerecorded short address.

The audience included 5,000 people and almost two million viewers on television.

During the event a Latin American woman gave a Pachamama catechesis. She asked the audience to cross their arms over their chest and to feel a strong vibration, explaining that this is “your heart” but also “the heart of Mother Earth.”

Where there is silence, she explained, there is “the Spirit” who allows “to hear the message of Mother Earth.” She added that “for us indigenous peoples, Mother Earth, the Hicha Guaia, is everything” because the demon Guaia – a synonym for Pachamama – “gives us food, sacred water, medicinal plants” and therefore receives sacrificeslike “the placenta and the first hair of man which are cut.”

Cardinals and bishops present at this “catechesis” eagerly followed the woman’s instructions.



Satanic taunting? I’ll not rule it out.

Ed Pentin’s speech from the Catholic Identify Conference: Ignoring the obvious while violating the Law of Non-contradiction

Here’s the full text of Ed Pentin’s speech from September 30th, posted on his own blog. I went ahead and left a comment. Chime in, if you’re so moved.

If your position has you denying dogma, declaring every saint, doctor of the Church and faithful Catholic for 2000 years to be an idolatrous moron, denying the Law of Non-contradiction, and singing in pitch-perfect harmony with the foundational goal of Freemasonry, dontcha think that maybe you should pump the brakes and check your base premise, namely if Bergoglio is actually the Pope, or if something very, very odd happened in February of ARSH 2013?

If your answer to that question is, “No, absolutely not, I will not now nor will I ever question the base premise that Bergoglio is the Vicar of Christ on Earth, no matter what”… my question is, WHY NOT?


To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as to the truth of what he professes to believe. 

To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as to the truth of what he professes to believe. 

In both cases such mode of behaving is base and is insulting to God, and both are incompatible with the salvation of mankind. 

This kind of conduct is profitable only to the enemies of the faith, for nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good.

Moreover, want of vigor on the part of Christians is so much the more blameworthy, as not seldom little would be needed on their part to bring to naught false charges and refute erroneous opinions, and by always exerting themselves more strenuously they might reckon upon being successful. 

After all, no one can be prevented from putting forth that strength of soul which is the characteristic of true Christians, and very frequently by such display of courage our enemies lose heart and their designs are thwarted. 

Christians are, moreover, born for combat, whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: “Have confidence; I have overcome the world.”

Nor is there any ground for alleging that Jesus Christ, the Guardian and Champion of the Church, needs not in any manner the help of men. Power certainly is not wanting to Him, but in His loving kindness He would assign to us a share in obtaining and applying the fruits of salvation procured through His grace.

Pope Leo XIII
Paragraph 14


Remember, the greatest act of violence that can be done against the Papacy, and thus against the Church Militant, is to CALL A MAN PETER WHO IS NOT PETER.

Submission to legitimate authority is virtuous. Submission to illegitimate authority is a terrible sin which attacks the good of governing structures in se, and foments chaos, which is of the devil.

Pray for the Petrine See, vacant these 316 days and counting, and for Holy Mother Church, stunningly visible in terrible eclipse, the indefectible Body and Bride of Christ outside of which there is no salvation.

A question that needs to be asked: Why are these “Fwanciss is definitely the Pope and there’s nothing anyone can do about it so shut up, Stoopid” people so intransigently desirous for the Bergoglian Antipapacy to continue?

Antipope Bergoglio just announced his completely illigetimate, illegal attempted deposition of Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas. Sadly, +Strickland will probably fold and go along with this illegal act by the Antipope and his Antichurch currently occupying the Vatican. That’s what’s so sickening about this whole thing. Every scrap of power that Antipope Bergoglio wields is due 100% to the sheep handing him the power. Bergoglio wields ZERO legitimate power in the Catholic Church. Everything he says and does is built on a foundation of Luciferian deception. And our culture is so far gone that it is now a sick, inverted “virtue” to surrender to evil. Anything- ANYTHING other than any sort of virility. Oh no. Acting like a man, much less a Catholic man, is THE unforgivable sin.

Antipope Bergoglio is also getting ready to guarantee that all future “conclaves” are invalid by tricking the Church into thinking that the governing rules have been abrogated, and that “conclaves” include laywomen and various moral degenerates appointed by the Antipope himself. Again, the pathological incapacity of people to think in a linear progression (Bergoglio is not and never has been the Pope, and therefore has ZERO ability to abrogate or change ANYTHING) is being wielded by Satan as a relentless cudgel.

AND, of course, we have the Antipope and his sodomite child-groomer ghostwriter, Tucho Fernandez, giving the green light to having transvestites be baptized under their drag stage names, to stand as godparents, and for open sodomites to have children they have bought from human traffickers (called “adoption”) be baptized. There is already approval from Bergoglio and Fernandez for “blessings” for sodomites, and it is suspected that some sort of Luciferian sodomitical “marriage rite” will be rolled out next year.

Honest men, like Deacon Nick Donnelly of late, have started publicly acknowledging that Bergoglio obviously isn’t the Pope.

But what I want to draw everyone’s attention to are these people, who with each new egregious act of Antipope Bergoglio, triple, quadruple and quintuple down on the lie that “Fwanciss is DEFINITELY Pope, there have been lots of bad popes before, and there’s absolutely nothing ANYONE can do about this – in fact, it will probably take many decades if not centuries for any of this to be fixed, so shut up, Stoopid!”

The question is this: these people clearly WANT the LIE of Bergoglio being the Pope to be “true”, and to continue, even after Bergoglio dies. Why??? Why would you DEMAND not only that this continue, but that it cannot be fixed in our lifetimes? WHY?

When people like me, NonVeniMark, Dr. Mazza, and the growing number of others step forward and say, “Hey, there has been a HUGE mistake here, let me show you what happened, and this COULD be fixed, and fixed quickly and shockingly easily,” these people fly into a rage at the thought of the Bergoglian Antipapacy being ended and publicly nullified. I’m talking full-blown spittle-flecked nuttys, folks.

Again… WHY?

There are a few of these actors who are running red flags so high up the flagpole that it can’t be ignored. Lots of others are just scared of losing money, careers, etc. But there are a few who have even me scratching my chin and saying, “Whose payroll are these people on?”

Barnhardt Podcast #199: Karens, Konclaves, and Kineticism — Oh My!

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we recap Ann’s recent part 3 video — TL;DR: you can’t Vote for Pedro if there’s not a valid election — and muse about how, in this time of near universal error, there has never been an easier time to evangelize far and wide! We also discussed the recent kinetic events in the geographical area formerly known as Palestine, a land conquered by the Blood of Christ and which rightly belongs to those who truly believe what Christ and His Church teach (no matter how much the Karens want to argue this reality). In this month of All Saints and the Poor Souls in Purgatory let us never forget to call on the assistance of the Communion of Saints — and to return spiritual value to the Poor Souls in exchange for the value they can and do give us daily!
