I mean, you always add quotes to support your statements. I appreciate that. But I cannot find, anywhere in your videos, a single quote by one of fathers of the Church or by one of its doctors neither from the new or the old testament that states something as: "If the head of the Church is represented by apostates you are allowed to leave it". Can you show me one? I don't think Magisterium teaches that. You call the othodoxes [sic] "schismatic", what's the difference between them and you?
There's no need to be sedevantist [sic] to not follow Francis' teachings. He didn't change the Doctrine yet. If he will there will be the real schism.
MHFM: [Just so people understand the context of our response to Donato, it should be known that Donato has raised the same issue numerous times. We have repeatedly explained, in a charitable fashion, the Church’s teaching on loss of Church membership through heresy, etc. to Donato (perhaps three different times). We have explained what the Church is and what it is not. Donato also has access to the material. Yet, he still makes the same false assertions, insisting that the Catholic Church is defined by nothing more than buildings, and that whoever is in a building that once belonged to the Church, even if that person doesn’t profess the Catholic faith, is in the Church and can have authority in it. He’s a remarkably blind individual who worships externals, and he has no faith whatsoever. In his bad will, he refuses to accept the Church’s teaching about the faith one must have and profess to be in the Catholic Church.]
Since you are so obstinate, we have to say that you are a soul-dead fool with no faith. How hard is it for you to understand? Heretics lose membership in the Church automatically. The Catholic Church is not a building. It's the society of believers. Francis, by professing a false faith, ceases to be one of the believers. People who don’t profess the true faith are not in the Catholic Church, even if they are in buildings that identify as Catholic or were previously Catholic.
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 22), June 29, 1943: “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have received the laver of regeneration and profess the true faith…”
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi (# 23), June 29, 1943: “For not every offense, although it may be a grave evil, is such as by its very own nature [suapte natura] to sever a man from the Body of the Church [ab Ecclesiae Corpore], as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”
Francis is not in the Church. By obstinately accepting him, you are also not in the Church. By staying with him, you are not staying with the Church. You are truly a bad-willed, blind, and faithless person. Your false position would have compelled you to accept the Arian heretics in the 4th century, when they gained control of many Catholic buildings.
St. Robert Bellarmine: “A pope who is a manifest heretic automatically ceases to be pope and head, just as he ceases automatically to be a Christian and a member of the Church. Wherefore, he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the teaching of all the ancient Fathers who teach that manifest heretics immediately lose all jurisdiction.”
With regard to the ‘Orthodox,’ it’s very simple: they reject Catholic teaching, Catholic dogmas, Catholic councils, the Papacy, etc. We accept Catholic teaching, Catholic dogmas, etc. Catholic teaching proves that Francis and other heretics are not in the Church. You are actually in communion with the ‘Orthodox’ because your heretical leaders officially teach that the ‘Orthodox’ are in the Church of Christ and that they should not be converted.

You also write falsely when you say that Francis “didn’t change the doctrine yet.” Do you ignore all the facts?
In his astounding Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium – which Francis addressed to the universal Church and identified as a document of the “universal magisterium” in #51 – he professes that he holds Jews to have a valid covenant with God (#247). He professes that it’s “admirable” for Muslims to participate in daily Islamic prayers and religious services (#252). He professes that non-Christians are “justified by the grace of God” (#254), directly contrary to the Catholic profession of faith and Catholic dogma that only Christians, i.e., those with the Catholic faith, can be justified. In #254 of that document Francis also speaks of non-Christian rites, signs and expressions (in other words, the false beliefs and wicked practices of non-Christian and pagan religions) as “God’s working” and things which “the Holy Spirit raises up.” That of course is directly opposed to the profession of the Catholic faith, that false and non-Christian religions are the product of evil spirits. In #255 Francis professes that religious freedom, whereby everyone has the right to promote any religious view in public, is to be viewed as “a fundamental human right”, directly contrary to the Catholic profession of faith on religious liberty. Those points were covered in this video: Why Francis Must Not Be Considered The Pope (video).
Francis does not profess the true faith, and the aforementioned heresies and false doctrines are promulgated in his official teaching/doctrine to the “universal Church”.
Moreover, even if Francis had not attempted to bind false doctrines on the entire Church (which he did through Evangelii Gaudium), the fact that he’s a heretic who professes a false faith in the external forum alone proves that he cannot be considered in the Church.
These words apply to you:
Matthew 13:10-15- “Then the disciples came and said to him, ‘Why do you speak to them in parables?’ And he answered them, ‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: ‘You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.’ For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’”
