On Nov. 30, 2015, during his recent plane trip home from Africa, Antipope Francis gave another heresy-packed interview. Some of the interview’s highlights were reported by National Catholic Reporter’s Vatican correspondent, Joshua McElwee, and others. During the interview:
Francis also spoke out strongly again against religious fundamentalism, saying that fundamentalism exists in all religions and should be combatted with efforts at friendship. He said he prefers not to speak of having tolerance for other religious, but "living together, friendship."
"Fundamentalism is a sickness that is in all religions," said the pontiff. "We Catholics have some -- and not some, many -- who believe they possess the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil.”
"They do evil," said the pope. "I say this because it is my church."
"We have to combat it," he said. "Religious fundamentalism is not religious, because it lacks God. It is idolatry, like the idolatry of money."
These statements are very significant. Antipope Francis declares that Catholic fundamentalism (i.e. Catholicism/traditional Catholicism) is “evil”. In this very context he also condemns believing that you have the “absolute truth”. The Church’s dogmas and the divine revelation of Jesus Christ are, of course, examples of “absolute truth”. They are truths that have an unchanging and fixed character. According to Francis, believing that you possess the absolute truth is “evil” and “idolatry”. Francis’ statement is a rejection (and condemnation) of the very concept of dogma and divine revelation. Francis says that those who believe in divine revelation and dogma are “doing evil.” His accusation obviously applies to all true Catholics in history and to Jesus Christ Himself.
John 14:6: “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
For those who are not brain-dead and soul-dead, Francis’ proclamations are an expression of apostasy. To assert that he’s not a heretic in the face of such statements touches the realm of the insane. Don’t listen to the heretics who are used by Satan to keep people in the Counter Church and in communion with manifest heretics. Some of them, echoing the Devil’s message, will tell you: “Continue to recognize Francis. You don’t have the authority to say he’s not Catholic and not a true pope. Remain under him.” The truth, however, is the opposite. You are not only permitted to reject him as a heretic, you are required to do so. According to Catholic teaching, you are forbidden, under pain of grave sin and heresy, to profess communion with such a man (i.e. one who professes a false faith and teaches notorious heresies in the external forum). To do so is to sin against the faith and deny the Church’s unity of faith. It is also to lead people to a wolf who will devour them.
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 Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 13), June 29, 1896: “You are not to be looked upon as holding the true Catholic faith if you do not teach that the faith of Rome is to be held.”
St. Robert Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church, De Romano Pontifice, II, 30: "A pope who is a manifest heretic automatically (per se) 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."
St. Francis De Sales (17th century), Doctor of the Church, The Catholic Controversy, pp. 305-306: "Now when he [the Pope] is explicitly a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church..."
St. Antoninus (1459): "In the case in which the pope would become a heretic, he would find himself, by that fact alone and without any other sentence, separated from the Church. A head separated from a body cannot, as long as it remains separated, be head of the same body from which it was cut off. A pope who would be separated from the Church by heresy, therefore, would by that very fact itself cease to be head of the Church. He could not be a heretic and remain pope, because, since he is outside of the Church, he cannot possess the keys of the Church."
Francis’ statements are more clear proof that he’s not the pope, but a manifestly heretical non-Catholic antipope. Certainly, false conservatives and false traditionalists are up in arms over Francis’ latest outrage. They are expressing more shock and wonder about how this could possibly be happening. In the process they are only further fulfilling Apocalypse 17:8, as we have explained (Apocalypse 17:8 Fulfilled - video). It’s time that people stopped listening to the false traditionalists and false conservatives. They have misled multitudes for a long period of time. They have, and deserve, no credibility. Everything that has happened (e.g. what Francis has done and continues to do) has just further proven that they are totally wrong, and that we are (and have been) correct. They are blind guides. They have been promoting a false position and misleading people for years. Such deceivers and false teachers try to keep people in a Counter Church and in communion with heretics. They will lead you to Hell. Every day that goes by only further proves that their position is false, and that our position is true.
In the interview, Francis also spoke of the Church’s condemnation of condom use as if it makes no difference one way or the other. But that’s hardly a surprise in light of the massive heresy above.
Francis also faced a question about the church's teaching prohibiting use of artificial contraception from a journalist who asked if the church should consider changing its stance on the issue -- particularly on the use of condoms -- given the continuing spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. "The question seems too small to me," the pontiff responded. "It seems to me also like a partial question."
"The morality of the church is found on this point, I think, in front of a perplexity," he said. "Fifth or Sixth commandment? Defend life, or that sexual relations be open to life? This is not the problem. The problem is bigger." "This question makes me think of what they asked Jesus one time: 'Tell me, master, is it licit to heal on the Sabbath?'" Francis continued. "Malnutrition, exploitation of persons, slave work, lack of drinking water," he said. "These are the problems."
"I do not like to descend into reflections that are so casuistic when people are dying," he continued. "I would say to not think if it is licit or not licit to heal on the Sabbath. I say to humanity: Make justice, and when all are healed, when there is not injustice in this world, we can speak of the Sabbath."
Pope Leo XIII: “To reject dogma is simply to deny Christianity.” (Tametsi # 9, Nov. 1, 1900)
Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Sess. 3, Chap. 4 on Faith and Reason, 1870: “Hence, also, that understanding of its sacred dogmas must be perpetually retained, which Holy Mother Church has once declared; and there must never be a recession from that meaning under the specious name of a deeper understanding.”
Pope Pius IX, First Vatican Council, Session 3, Canon 3 on Faith and Reason, 1870: "If anyone says that it is possible that at some time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the church which is different from that which the Church has understood and understands: let him be anathema."
Pope Pius X, Pascendi Dominic Gregis (# 26), Sept. 8, 1907, On the doctrine of the Modernists: “To the laws of evolution everything is subject – dogma, Church, worship, the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself, and the penalty of disobedience is death. The enunciation of this principle will not astonish anybody who bears in mind what the Modernists have had to say about each of these subjects.”
