    Dr. Reza Parchizadeh, a political theorist and analyst, recently noted on Twitter that “the Iranian regime has turned the late #George_Floyd into Saint George, Shiite-style!” And sure enough, Parchizadeh posted a painting of Floyd depicting him in the way Shi’ite Muslims often depict their holy figures: in a green robe and surrounded by an aura of holy light.

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis's Gay Sex Abuse Agenda vs. Pope Benedict's Catholic Anti-Sex Abuse Agenda Francis strolls hand in hand with the anti-gangster and gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti On September 1, Crux reported that Francis said: "Let's call unions between the same sex 'civil unions.'" (Crux, "'I consulted a psychoanalyst,' Pope Francis reveals in new book," September 1, 2017) The gay/lesbian dissenting New Ways Ministry said: "Pope Francis has never, as pontiff, stated his endorsement of [homosexual] civil unions so flatly. (He did support civil unions as a compromise to his opposition towards marriage equality... As pontiff, he...

    [Catholic / Orthodox Caucus] How Amoris Laetitia’s Stalemate Debases Marriage In modernity, monogamy is often defined to mean “one partner at a time” or, in other words, “anything short of a harem.” As the Sexual Revolution enters its third generation, the figures are becoming clear: a greater number of sexual partners corresponds to a lower success rate in a later marriage.Marriage as we know it cannot coexist with free love, yet weddings continue to be performed. We govern ourselves by our decisions, not by averages, but we must acknowledge averages if we are to avoid following courses of least resistance...

    Pope distorts basic Christian teaching in homily It seems that the Pope has confused redsmption with justification. May 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In his homily at Mass on May 4, 2020, starting from the consoling truth that Christ died for all men, appears to have stated a doubly false conclusion: that we are not to convert unbelievers and that His death “justifies” everyone:   Big, small, rich, poor, good and bad. All. This “all” is the vision of the Lord who died for all. “But did he die for that wretch who made my life impossible?” He died for him too. “And for...

    As our readers know, I have written quite a bit about a certain Pastor/Evangelist named Rodney Howard Browne. I have articles < a HREF="https://billrandles.wordpress.com/2020/03/31/corona-rodney-howard-browne-and-jeremiah/">Here, and here and as well I wrote a Book called “Weighed And Found Wanting;putting the Toronto Blessing in Context” which discusses Howard Browne’s Theology. I regard him as a mystic, a gnostic and a dangerous heretic. Howard Browne induces thousands of people into states of “Spiritual Drunkenness”, trances, and other mystical states to varying degree. He calls himself “God’s Bartender”, and boasts of hosting Revivals at “Joel’s Place”, which is a pun off of the Book...

On the question of the true popein the light of the opinion of the automatic loss of the papal office for heresyand the speculations about the resignation of Benedict XVI The hypothesis of the possibility of a heretical pope derives from the Decree of Gratian (dist. XL, cap. 6, col. 146) from the 12th century. According to the opinion...

    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...

    There are two views of when Revelation was written. One view is that it was written around AD 95-96. The second view is that it was written in the mid 60’s AD—prior to the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. I will show that the early date has the strongest support. 1. Revelation 17:10 says that the book was written during the sixth king, who was Nero, who reigned from AD 54-68. (The previous five Roman rulers were Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, and Claudius.) Interestingly, the text also says that the seventh king to come would reign only “a...

    The TDS-addled viewers that comprise the audience for MSNBC don’t want honest appraisals of the strength of the case presented by the House impeachment managers. They have become a cult founded on the belief that Donald Trump somehow is a threat to the Republic, though the concentration camps, wars blundered into, and economic depression so confidently predicted have nowhere manifested themselves in this dimension of reality. The only apocalypse in sight is a potential crushing Democrat defeat at the polls in November once voters focus on whether their lives are better off now than they were 4 years ago. President...
