    The president of the Southern Baptist Convention is taking heat for sitting down for a feel-good discussion with a controversial Muslim scholar and failing to criticize Sharia and defend Jews. JD Greear shared the stage last week with Omar Suleiman at North Carolina State University as part of an interfaith dialogue presented by The Veritas Forum, which brings faith-based thinkers in front of college students. Even before their first words were spoken, the two guests brought their own controversies: Greear has been accused by some Southern Baptists for overseeing a leftward drift of the world’s largest denomination. Suleiman, meanwhile, has...

    Catholic Archbishop Jan Lenga, the former head of the Diocese of Karaganda, Khazakhstan and now retired in Poland, was ordered to stop delivering sermons and speaking with the media because of his frequent statements that Pope Francis is a "heretic" spreading "untruths and sins" and "leading the world astray." Archbishop Lenga has rejected the order to be silent, issued this month by Polish Bishop Wieslaw Mering, because no one in the Polish church apparently has the authority to silence him, reported Crux.com. Lenga belongs to a religious order, the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception, and is living as...

    Francis’ Nightmares for the Church: Analysis of New Apostolic Exhortation Francis had some dreams, but they are really nightmares for the Church. These are not the dreams of the Patriarch Joseph, nor those of St. Joseph or St. John Bosco. They clearly do not come from the same source as the visions granted to these holy men.On Feb. 12, 2020, the Vatican released the dreaded Apostolic Exhortation Querida Amazonia (QA), relating to the Synod on the Amazon that was held in Rome in October 2019. Dated February 2, the document is a bizarre relation of Francis’ “dreams” for the Amazon...

The Pope did this by means of suggesting the development of a new “Amazonian rite” that would, in the words of the exhortation, “inculturate the...

    Querida Amazonia: Syncretizing Smoke and German-tinted Mirrors The reactions to the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Querida Amazonia—I had almost written Post-Sinusoidal Apostolic Expectoration—have once again exhibited all the features of an ecclesiastical Rorschach inkblot test. In spite of the document’s hailing from the man whom we might as well agree to call Pope Lío (as in ¡Hagan lío!), conservatives of the First Things variety have breathed a collective sigh of relief: “Peter has spoken through Lío!” The pope did not, after all, push through married priests and female deacons, as everyone had feared! The Germans are collectively wringing their hands...

    Pro-Trump preacher accused of homophobia and IslamophobiaLONDON (ChurchMilitant.com) - A leading traditionalist Catholic politician has robustly defended Franklin Graham's right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion after all seven venues booked by the preacher banned the evangelist from speaking during his forthcoming tour of the United Kingdom. Liberal Anglican bishops had joined hands with anti-Christian secularists and gay activists in attempting to silence Graham by accusing him of peddling hate speech. The Leader of Britain's House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, condemned Graham's "no-platforming" as a "particularly disagreeable modern trend" and stressed that freedom of speech was of "fundamental...

    Deranged Doctrines in Francis’ Querida Amazonia Querida Amazonia (QA) contains some crazy statements which have gone unnoticed.In §5, Francis says he wants to awaken the whole world's “affection” for the Amazon region which he calls nothing less than a “sacred mystery,” a term which designates the Sacraments.According to Francis we cannot only “love” the Amazon region but “we can feel intimately a part of it.” As a consequence the region will become “like a mother to us” (55).Francis insists that we shouldn't view the peoples who live isolated from the outside world, as "'uncivilised' savages." Instead, he presents them euphemistically...

    Another Explosive Socci Interview Antonio Socci has written a new book, Il Dio Mercato, La Chiesa, e L’Anticrsiso (The Market God, the Church and the Antichrist). As followers of his work – and I am one – have come to expect, Socci provides an acute and devastating commentary on the state of the Church and the world today, which his interviewer calls (translation mine) “a situation beyond all limits and unsustainable, given the Bergoglian line and the co-presence of two Popes who, beyond ceremonial courtesies, say opposite things.”In Socci’s view, expressed in the opening of his book (quoting a 1934...
