    Catholic priest praises same-sex couples raising children as ‘holy families’ Fr. Bryan Massingale also said that being a Catholic parish means offering ‘extravagant welcome’ to ‘LGBTQ persons’ MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, August 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic priest who openly admits that he’s “gay” is praising same-sex couples raising children as “holy families.” He demanded that Catholic show respect for “LGBTQ families as communities of love.” Fr. Bryan Massingale, in an August 6, 2020 article that appeared in U.S. Catholic, also told Catholic parishes that to have “credibility as the church of Jesus Christ” means to offer “extravagant welcome” to “LGBTQ Catholics.”...

    VIGANÒ: A SNEAKY AND COWARDLY BETRAYAL OF THE CHURCH IS TAKING PLACE. Dear Stilumcuriali, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has sent us this answer to an essay by Father Thomas Weinandy, which seems to us extremely interesting to evaluate the current situation of the Church, the roots of the crisis and the reality that emerged from Vatican Council II. Enjoy reading it. August 10, 2020Saint Laurence, Martyr Reverend Father Thomas, I read attentively your essay Vatican II and the Work of the Spirit which was published at Inside the Vatican on July 27, 2020 (here). It seems to me that...
  • Atheist Scalfari So Untrustworthy, Francis Grants Him Another Interview

    Atheist Scalfari So Untrustworthy, Francis Grants Him Another Interview In several previous interviews with Francis, atheist journalist, Eugenio Scalfari, reported that the Pontiff told him proselytism is solemn nonsense, truth is relative, Jesus was not God at all, and Hell doesn’t exist. The Vatican occasionally had to make statements following these whoppers indicating that Scalfari’s account of these interviews are unreliable. So, of course, what does Francis do? Grants Scalfari another interview.This time there were not as many heresies, blasphemies, and apostasies. However, there were still inanities and absurdities as any interview with Francis will inevitably contain. The far left,...

    [Catholic Caucus] North American Martyrs and the Importance of Baptism The religious impact of the discovery of the New World in the late 15th century cannot be overestimated. Although Catholic Europeans were aware of areas of the world that were not Christian (they had been involved in centuries of crusades against the Muslims), the assumption of most Catholics was that the Gospel had reached the ends of the earth, even if some vast areas had still not accepted it.However, with the discovery of the New World, the Church realized that even 1,500 years after the Incarnation there was still a...

    Vatican Poised to “Renew” Sellout of the Underground Church in China An article in Asia News sounds the alarm about a prospective renewal of the “provisional agreement”—i.e., betrayal of the Church in China—between the Vatican and the Butchers of Beijing, as I prefer to call the Chinese Communist Party.Asia News points to a piece in the Global Times which reveals that “Negotiations between China and the Vatican on the renewal of the agreement on bishop appointments is proof that the framework has worked well for the past two years, which will help elevate the bilateral relations to the next level,...

    The Vatican’s sinister deal with Beijing Next month, the Vatican will talk to Beijing about renewing its 2018 deal with the Chinese Communist Party that effectively allowed President Xi to choose the country's Catholic bishops. He has used this power to force Catholics loyal to Rome to join the puppet Catholic church set up by Chairman Mao in the 1950s. They can no longer refuse on the grounds that they recognise only the Pope's Church because Francis himself has validated the orders of Xi's party stooges. But the Holy Father has done more than that: he has ostentatiously failed to condemn...

    Bishop of Sacramento Excommunicates Priest Who Does Not Accept Pope Francis A Catholic priest in Sacramento, California, has been excommunicated by his bishop for refusing to recognize the validity of the papacy of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, also known as Pope Francis.

Jeremy Leatherby has placed himself and others in a state of schism with the Roman Catholic Church [and] incurred a latae sententiae excommunication” for having “instructed [the faithful] against the legitimacy of His Holiness, Pope Francis.” Furthermore, Bishop Soto condemns...

    Vatican Renews Betraying Agreement With China Francis will renew the secret 2018 agreement with China by which he betrays the Catholics to the Communist State.Both sides are "satisfied" with the agreement which is about to expire in September. Vatican Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo told GlobalTimes.cn (August 5) that the experience went “well.”Sorondo doesn't offer daily Mass nor say the breviary but believes that the Chinese regime is the "best implementer" of Catholic social doctrine.By suspending the agreement Francis would have to admit his mistake, but he prefers to sacrifice the Church rather than his reputation.Across China, statues of Christ and...

    Divine Wrath for Amazon Synod Idolatry The world's tribulations and the Pachamama enthronement The world, it would seem, stands accursed on account of the outright idolatry endorsed by Rome in the weeks bookending the infamous Amazon Synod. Indeed, in the immediate aftermath of the enthronement of a grotesque and simian statue of the heathen goddess Pachamama in the Eternal City, a spate of calamities has ravaged mankind in what can be little other than divine chastisement for Church leaders' blasphemy.    Although the Pachamama incident of 2019 — despicable as it was — has become a nigh ubiquitously known and oft-lamented bit...

    The Deep Church Helps Biden National Catholic Reporter does a puff piece on the most pro-abortion candidate ever. Were Joe Biden given a Catholic rating, it would be zero. He not only stands against central moral teachings of the Church but has also promised to violate her religious freedom. Should he win, he would resume the persecution of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic groups. Despite all of this, Biden seeks the Catholic vote, and is receiving help from bad Catholics burrowed within the Church. What Archbishop Carlo Viganò has called the “deep Church” is working hard...

    [Catholic Caucus] COVID-19 Has Changed the Way Europeans Go to Mass — For the Worse What could have been a golden opportunity to preach the Gospel in the midst of suffering has instead brought aggressive church restrictions and flippant liturgical practices. n recent days I visited a number of churches in Italy and the alpine regions of Germany and Austria and was especially struck by how detrimental the reaction to the coronavirus pandemic had been to worship. Whereas most public places had become fairly relaxed about precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — few people, for example, wore masks...

He knows because his sodomite sister told him so!Link here. The whole thing is only 24 minutes long. The we have to love sin part starts at 10:35.

Speaking with Crux, a U.S.-based online Catholic news outlet, Ambassador Brownback said he really hopes “that the Vatican would look at this and see what they are dealing with,” in reference to revelations this week that hackers tied to the Chinese government had infiltrated the Vatican’s computer networks beginning last May. “If I were a Vatican official and seeing this...
