The Dictator does it his way

On the return flight from South America, once again, the Bishop of Rome has given an interview. He addresses two controversial matters, the "Sacrament of Matrimony" on the aeroplane in Chile and Bergoglio's insults to the victims of perverted priests.

On the marriage matter, reports are that it was a plan. Whether Bergoglio knew this or not, we do not know. What we do know is that the marriage sacrament is to be celebrated in a Church, there is also to be an investigation. Did the Pope have thorough knowledge that the two were baptised? that there were no previous marriages? did they confess their concubinage and receive absolution before the conferring of the sacrament? The Pope may think he can dispense with the law as the supreme lawgiver, it is not something he should do. Recall the Holy Thursday foot washing.

On the more serious matter, Bergoglio has offered an empty apology for his remarks in Chile before doubling down. Even his apologists are twisting themselves into pretzels over the matter. 

Sandro Magister nails it.

Why Francis Married Two Unknowns, But Refuses To Listen To Inconvenient Witnesses

Like clockwork, Pope Francis’s words spoken at high altitude, this time during his flight back from Peru to Rome on the night between January 21 and 22, have produced the umpteenth great confusion:

> Video of the press conference with Pope Francis
There were two explosive subjects of the press conference, both localized in Chile: the fate of the bishop of Osorno, Juan de la Cruz Barros Madrid, and the lightning wedding celebrated by the pope between a hostess and a steward, during the flight from Santiago to Iquique.
In this second case, Francis said that he had judged at once that “all the conditions were clear” for the validity of the sacrament, and therefore it could be celebrated right away. To come to this certainty he explained that the words of the two spouses were enough for him.
Concerning the bishop of Osorno, the opposite took place. The pope said that he “studied and restudied” the case for a long time, but there was no “evidence” for his guilt. And because of this he is keeping the bishop at the head of the diocese, in spite of the accusations that continue to be brought against him, accusations that for the pope are in reality “calumnies.”
In Chile, responding curtly to a question from a journalist, Francis had spoken not of missing “evidence,” but of “proofs.” And for the use of this latter word - in reality little or not at all different from the former - he apologized on the airplane. He held firm, however, to the correctness of the word “calumny” as he applied it to those who say they are victims of sexual abuse that the pope maintains never happened.
He also said, however, that he had never listened to the “victims” because they neither “came to” nor “were presented to” him. When in reality they asked over and over again, publicly, for the pope to listen to them so that he could verify on the basis of their testimony precisely that “evidence” which he continues to say is missing.
During the flight back from Rome, Francis also furnished a new exegesis of the letter he wrote to the Chilean bishops on January 31, 2015, made public by the “Associated Press” just before this journey to Chile.
From how the letter was written, in fact, it seemed to be clear that Pope Francis himself thought it was right, until the end of 2014, to remove this bishop, only to change his view and promote him, on January 10 of 2015, to the see of Osorno.
But now it seems that this was not the case. From what Francis said on the airplane it should be gathered that he always maintained that this bishop was “good and capable,” even when “a few people of the episcopal conference” of Chile wanted him to resign. And in fact, not once but twice the pope said that he had turned down his resignation, both before and after the appointment to Osorno, because to accept it would have meant “admitting his guilt,” when instead, he stated categorically: “I am convinces that he is innocent.”
In this tangle of contradictions, it remains unexplained why the victims of the spiritual guide of the bishop of Osorno, the priest Antonio Karadima, should have been given the greatest credence, arriving rapidly at the canonical sentence of condemnation, while some of these same victims are instead not given credence and not even listened to when they accuse the bishop.
During the inflight press conference, Francis also said that he had “thanked” Cardinal Sean O'Malley, head of the pontifical commission for the protection of minors, for the words he had spoken on the question.
In reality, the statement that the cardinal published on January 20 on the website of his archdiocese of Boston is anything but in harmony with the pope.
O'Malley said that “it is understandable that Pope Francis’ statements  were a source of great pain for survivors of sexual abuse,” because “words that convey the message ‘if you cannot prove your claims then you will not be believed’ abandon those who have suffered reprehensible criminal violations of their human dignity and relegate survivors to discredited exile”:
Returning to the lightning wedding blessed by Francis on the flight between Santiago and Iquique, it must be noted that this outcome had been foreshadowed by the spouses themselves a month before, in an interview with the Chilean newspaper “El Mercurio” of December 19:
On the airplane, however, everything seemed to happen by surprise, to judge by the video of the “breaking news” given immediately afterward by the spouses themselves to the journalists on the flight with them:
And even Francis - according to what he said during the flight to Rome - seems to have been taken  by surprise by the idea of marrying the hostess and the steward, but decided to proceed on the spot, giving immediate credence to the two.
And to the journalist at the press conference who asked him “what would you say to the priests who find before them fiancés who intend to get married on an airplane or on a ship,” he replied calmly:
“It must be said to the priests that the pope questioned them well, it was a regular situation.”

Ever since Bergoglio's first interview with Scalfari, I have known him to be a liar. No Catholic plays with what we believe to be true, unchanging, perfect Words of Jesus - I am The Way, the Truth and the Life - to please his own overgrown ego, and place it above God's truth - all roads lead to heaven, if one follows one's conscience.

Yes. Jorge Bergoglio is a liar. He knows that he is not a Catholic, because he denies the validity of our Faith. We know that the infiltrators of the Church will despise and mock the Faith, but will not leave to start their own church, because the true Church has the Truth, and is too strong to be beaten in an open fight. For centuries they schemed to destroy the Catholic Church with deceit from within, via installation of Masons, crypto-Jews, communists and atheists (perhaps mostly gullible useful idiots) as our... shepherds.

Having said that, I wonder whether Jorge Bergoglio had good reason to defend the alleged protector of pedophiles.

After all, we "know" what we have been told by the media (which are in the business of managing perception), and we know who rules the media. I watch a lot of you tube videos, and I can say with conviction that many you-tubers seemingly truth-loving, Jesus-loving, and seemingly opposed to the new world order and Bergoglio-led one world religion, constantly accuse all our popes of participation in human sacrifice and baby eating. Allegedly they are all pedophiles.

PF is splitting hairs when he tries to substitute "evidence" for "proof". In Fr. Fernando Karadima's case the Holy See took a zero tolerance approach & banished him but when victims tried to get +Barros appointment rescinded it was dealt with differently. A judge in Chile said that while she could not legally move the case forward, proof of Karadima’s crimes “wasn’t lacking.” PF had only to ask for a copy of the court's documentation to get his "proof", but because he knows +Barros he decided he was not guilty & ignored his victims. This may well be the beginning of the end for PF as this will be remembered by the Chilean people for generations to come. ++O'Malley did well to chastise him but nevertheless one suspects there will be no papal admonishments for paedophile & sodomite priests/religious under this regime.

The airborne 'marriage' carried out is a travesty which ignored the rules governing the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony & IMO offered no more than the civil marriage they had already undertaken. The reasons that were cited for it being a spur of the moment decision were soon found out to be untrue, being highly implausible anyhow. It was a PR disaster!

Satan does reign in the Vatican & everyone there is smeared by him. Their recent request for Chinese Catholic Bishops to stand down in favour of Chinese government appointed ones is incredible but, of course, the one occupying the Seat of Peter is a Marxist so we cannot be too surprised. Those living under dictatorships - Chinese, Venezuelans & the entire Catholic world under PF, need prayers urgently to resist.
