Seen on the web : Liberation theology and the Jesuits have wreaked havoc on the Church in much of Latin America.

…Jorge Bergoglio shows many of the symptoms so clearly exposed in Mario Vargas Llosa’s book, The Guide to the Latin American Idiot. Vargas Llosa is from Peru, however, Vargas Llosa has an extensive knowledge of all Latin American countries. Vargas Llosa skewers the pseudo-intellects that blame the United States and/or capitalism for their problems and embrace liberation theology or Marxism or caudillos (Chavez, Peron, Castro) for their solutions. These pseudo-intellects can be found in Latin American higher education, politics and especially the Catholic Church. This bunch has a tenuous grasp on reality – if they have one at all.

Pope Francis is a man who, his personal orthodoxy notwithstanding, has shown little understanding of the Catholic Church or the world outside of his archdiocese. His off the cuff comments about almost any subject show little insight or research and lots of uninformed opinion. He has also shown that he is a man not to be crossed.

My wife is from Colombia. She learned her Catholicism from Jesuits. My Catholic instruction as a child was shallow and minimal. Hers was often just plain wrong. One of the authors she was encouraged to read was Anthony DiMello, a former Jesuit priest, whose writings were censured in no uncertain terms by Cardinal Ratzinger. Liberation theology and the Jesuits have wreaked havoc on the Church in much of Latin America.

CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY TO TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO PROMOTE, PROTECT OBAMACARE-COVERED ABORTIONS

The course, “Regulatory Advocacy: Women and the Affordable Care Act,” is set to be taught at Georgetown Law, and it has upset staunch Catholics, according to The Cardinal Newman Society, which first reported on the new academic offering.

“We have long warned about Georgetown scandals that undermine the Church’s strong defense of innocent life,” Patrick Reilly, society president, told Catholic Education Daily. “But here students are being required to work for a pro-abortion lobby, making America’s oldest Catholic university an active agent of the culture of death.”

Standard issue Jesuit revolutionary propaganda?

… Bergoglio/Francis’s attacks on “triumphalism” are nothing new. As with almost everything else that comes down from his warped Modernist mind and out of his mouth or onto a computer keyboard, Bergoglio/Francis’s screeds about traditionally-minded Catholics are simply standard issue Jesuit revolutionary propaganda that was minted in the late-1960s and popularized in the 1970s before the “cold chill” from in from the “Polish ‘pope'” who, they believed, wanted to “stifle” theological discussion and academic freedom.

An inquiring mind, though, could ask the following questions of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis about his triumphalist straw men.

First, Jorge, identify just one of these triumphalists. Just one. Name names. Be specific.

Second, name the speeches and identify the liturgy and the pastoral theology that supposedly prove your claim that triumphalists do not “believe in the Risen Jesus.”

Third, do you believe in the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary?

Fourth, do you believe in the Triumph of the Social Reign of Christ the King?

Fifth, if not, do you mean to condemn those who adhere to the immutable truths contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith and who defend the beauty of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition for the honor and glory that it gives to the Most Blessed Trinity in a fitting, reverent and, just by the way, valid and thus sacramentally fruitful unbloody perpetuation or re-presentation of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s offering of Himself on the wood of the Holy Cross to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal God the Father in Spirit and in Truth?

Editor’s note: This article was posted on a noted sedavacantist website, but the writer makes points worth considering. There’s more – but I warn you – it is blunt and not at all flattering or respectful.

I’m posting this because it’s important to realize that we Catholics have heard and seen all this before – in the bad old days of the late ’60’s and 70’s – as the Catholic Church was being violently deconstructed, right before our eyes.

It’s time we Catholics quit tolerating the shameful antics of highly placed heretics, since at least some of us are indeed capable of discerning the difference between fakers presenting cleverly crafted bundles of lies and authentic men of God teaching Catholic truth.

One more thing: Beware of any Catholic cleric making use of the word “pastoral” – which has become the “phony”  justification and “catch-all” excuse for the many failings and shortcomings of those who have been running the Catholic Church into the ground, for the past 50 years. 

The exclusive interview with Pope Francis – one Jesuit to another

“But I am always wary of decisions made hastily. I am always wary of the first decision, that is, the first thing that comes to my mind if I have to make a decision. This is usually the wrong thing. I have to wait and assess, looking deep into myself, taking the necessary time. The wisdom of discernment redeems the necessary ambiguity of life and helps us find the most appropriate means, which do not always coincide with what looks great and strong.”

Editor’s note: This is the interview that will generate a “mother lode” of media comments – mostly wrong. Better to read it yourself.

Jesuits: Worshiping human reason, instead of the God who became human, for us?

St Ignatius and his Company of Jesus did extraordinary things for evangelisation following their foundation but their disdain for Liturgy has introduced a fault line into Western Christianity that has deeply wounded our intellectual life and it looks as if it is to continue.

“Change” has come to the Vatican

The Argentine-born pontiff offered the encouragement for renewal in a homily during Mass Saturday at the Vatican City hotel where he lives. Francis told Catholics ”not to be afraid of renewing some structures” to accord with ”the places, the times” and the people, but he didn’t specify what needed to be changed.

Editor’s note: Here we have the new Pontiff channeling Barack Obama, instead of the Holy Spirit. Evidently, liberals and Jesuits think alike. 

Homoheresy in the Catholic Church

The most open revolt against the Pope and the Church is headed by some Jesuits in the United States, who openly oppose them and announce that despite the above decisions, they will keep admitting homosexually-oriented seminarians, who are, indeed, especially welcome[26].

They have a long tradition in that vein, for years being the mainstay of homoideology and homoheresy. They take many views of the heretical moral theologian, ex-priest Charles Curran, for their own. They are also under the overwhelming influence of their former fellow friar, F. John McNeill SJ, who founded the pro-homosexual movement called Dignity, and published a book entitled The Church and the Homosexual, where he explicitly rejects the teaching of the Church and adopts homoideology.

The book was given animprimatur by his provincial from New York, and has been republished several times despite being banned by the Vatican. This way, it has become a homosexual bible for many American Jesuits.

McNeill seems to mean more for them than Jesus or Saint Paul, much less the Pope[27]. The Theological Studies and America papers they publish still uphold and promote pro-homosexual ideas. Consequently, it is estimated they have achieved the highest saturation with homosexuals, way above 30 percent. Gays feel more comfortable with them than ever, while other priests find the specific atmosphere less and less bearable[28].
