In the Vatican II sect, however, annulments are given out like hotcakes. They are almost always granted when requested. They serve as de facto divorce and 'remarriage'. As an example, only 338 annulments were granted in 1968 in the U.S., when the pre-Vatican II teaching on marriage was still held by most. However, with the explosion of the post-Vatican II apostasy, the teaching of the indissolubility of marriage has been thrown out the window along with the other dogmas. From 1984 to 1994, the Vatican II Church in the U.S. granted just under 59,000 annually, even though the number of 'Catholic' marriages has fallen one third since 1965! Clearly, the Vatican II sect sanctions divorce and 'remarriage'.
But even that pace of divorce and 'remarriage' in the Counter Church was too slow for the apostate Antipope Francis. In his new demonic documents, he has made it much easier for adherents of the Counter Church to abandon their marriages and pretend to enter new ones. He has fast-tracked the process, added new 'reasons' for seeking an annulment (such as abortion), and granted new powers to the local 'authorities'. Previously, a second court had to confirm a decision. That has been dropped. Previously, there was an expense. Now it's free. In some cases, the local apostate 'bishop' of the Vatican II sect can render the decision alone. It's all about making divorce and 'remarriage' in the Counter Church even easier than it is. Here's how one Novus Ordo paper summarized just some of the changes:
- One sentence of nullity is enough.
- One judge, under the responsibility of the bishop, is enough to oversee the process.
- Under certain circumstances, each bishop can himself serve as the judge.
- In case of the annulment being “evident,” there will be an even shorter process.
- The local bishops’ conferences are called to help individual bishops through the reform process, and are called to help guarantee, save for the “just and decent remuneration of workers of the courts,” that the process be free of charge.
- Appeal of a sentence, in case it’s required, can be dealt with locally (on the level of the nearest archdiocese), instead of taking it to the Vatican (http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2015/09/08/pope-francis-streamlines-process-for-granting-annulments/)
Even though only one sentence is required, if an appeal is made it can be handled by the nearest 'archdiocese'. It's no longer necessary to take it to Rome. Under this new arrangement, apostate 'ordinaries' of the Vatican II sect will be able to appease basically anyone who is unhappy in his or her marriage. Adherents of the Vatican II sect can wind up 'unmarried' within a mere 45 days of having complained to their 'bishop'! This is sick. It's all about the worship of man, never refusing what man wants and desires. Can you imagine how disastrous this decision will be on the local level of the Vatican II sect, where the apostate 'bishops' of the Vatican II sect stand for nothing and condemn nothing?! They will issue 'annulments' like they are handing out flyers! It's a demonic attack on the Sacrament of Marriage. It's another clear sign of the end times. It is nothing more than complete heresy - a rejection of Catholic dogma on the indissolubility of marriage. The antipope also promulgated his radical reforms via two 'Apostolic Letters' issued 'motu proprio'. Those who accept this antipope are part of the problem and will follow him into the pit. People who continue to consider him the pope, in the face of the facts, mock the Church and the Papacy.
Moreover, this decision is of course causing more shock, outrage, and wonder among the followers of the Counter Church. It's certainly another example of what we covered in this video - the true fulfillment of Apocalypse 17:8.

Here's an article from our book on the Vatican II sect's phony annulments, which have now gotten much worse with Antipope Francis' latest apocalyptic move. The article gives examples of how true popes defended the indissolubility of marriage.
