Developments & Reactions

This post continues our coverage of the ongoing ecclesiastical Chernobyl unleashed by the accusations of the former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Viganò, which were first published on Aug. 25 and have the potential not only to bring an end to the Francis “pontificate” but even to throw the entire Vatican II Sect into unprecedented chaos:

Reactions from Select Blogs and Web Sites

•A Novus Ordo canon lawyer considers whether “Abp.” Vigano violated church law by divulging what would fall under the “Pontifical secret” •Joseph Shaw writes that “the attempted character-assassination of Viganò himself increasingly strikes observers as an example of the whistle-blower suppression strategy which is very much part of the problem Viganò has been trying to expose” •The Catholic Herald‘s Michael Davis notes “Cardinals” Wuerl and Cupich ‘give contrasting responses to Vigano’s testimony’ •The National Catholic Reporter‘s Michael Sean Winters says that “the idea that people who showed no particular concern for the victims or allegations when they were Fr.

Snippet from the Related Story from above:

(A sedevacantist blogger comments on the relationship between ‘perversion and Modernism’)

"...This post will demonstrate the link between Modernism and rampant sexual perversion in the Vatican II sect. It will be shown how (a) Christ condemns homosexuality, (b) the Magisterium condemns it, and the Vatican II sect then changes course, leading to perversion's acceptance in society with devastating consequences..."

Wow. That tells us something about the power of the Lavendar Mafia...that its tentacles reach from the Vatican to Obama, who is certainly himself a homo and a Post-Modernist/Marxist, but is in no other way (that we know of) related to the Catholic Church.

Leading me to suspect that there is one hell (!) of a flow chart we haven't seen yet.

Is it just ‘copied’ or is this the original format? It sure is hard to read. Was it originally bullet points or??

What’s with putting “Abp” and “Bishop” in quotation marks?

Is the writer implying that the individuals are not really archbishops and bishops?

Is the writer trying to revive the heresy of Donatism?

Seriously, such antics do nothing to advance the conservative Catholic’s arguments among those who are not already convinced of the fact that the Church has lost its way.

O’Sullivan’s Law states, “Any institution that is not explicitly right wing will become left wing over time.”

The progressive, post-modern left has already turned the 5000 year-old institution of marriage into travesty.

It should come as no surprise that the progressive, post-modern left could do the same to a 2000 year-old Church.

BTW, the “sedevacantist blogger” uses the term “Modernism” in a theological sense; i.e., “a tendency in theology to accommodate traditional religious teaching to contemporary thought and especially to devalue supernatural elements.” From a philosophical perspective, the “contemporary thought” behind the prevailing heresies of the Church reflects philosophical post-modernism.

These dangers that you perceive are just that: perceptions.

One must plunge the depths of fact and truth to get to the bottom of it no matter what others may perceive you are about.

No, this writer is not a advocating Donatism. Rather, using circumstantial evidence to suggest that those in Rome are apostates and heretics. That is a different ballgame than personal corruption and sin.

The Church will never lose Her way.

That is why one, to be faithful Catholic, and to receive true Sacraments and grace, must reject the false authority of heretics who have been parading as Pope and Cardinals and Bishops and Priests.

The expression “parading as ... priests” sure sounds like Donatism to me, but I don’t think that you are really a Donatist. It just sounds like Donatism: a mere perception perhaps, but the sort of perception that’s likely to leave an unconvinced person unpersuaded of the validity of your argument.

If a man is ordained as a priest, he does not just parade as a priest no matter how horrific his sins: he is a priest. The faithful can rely on the validity of his administration of the sacraments regardless of his personal failings. However, I won’t be so sure of that after Francis eventually gives his blessing to the ordination of women and “out-and-proud” priests.
