Breitbart links to The Remnant's Open Letter to President Trump, asking for an investigation into U.S. interference in Pope Benedict's resignation, after Italian archbishop says Benedict resigned under "tremendous pressure."
Plus, a Protestant minister's reaction to Pope Francis on atheists, EWTN, Phil Lawler and Deal Hudson on Pope Francis's revolution.
Is Francis the False Prophet of Revelation? The False Prophet will, according to warnings from heaven, deceive even the Elect if that were possible. Francis, on the other hand, has alerted the Elect to resist him. Michael Matt warns not to demote the False Prophet to a dangerous buffoon, and thus minimize the threat that we ourselves could be deceived by him when he comes. Msgr. Benson creates a much more realistic prototype in his fictional Julius Felsenburg--the lord of the world. Francis is no lord of the world.
And, finally, Michael has a message for sedevacantists.
The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country. They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline. Multiple comments from one person under a story are also discouraged. Capitalized sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).
The Remnant comments sections are not designed for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes between commenters. Please understand that we pay our writers to defend The Remnant’s editorial positions. We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website. Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.

The Remnant is pro-family, pro-life, pro-Catholic across the board, which is why it is hated by the far-Left and has even been targeted by powerful Liberal lobby groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center. We need your help if there's to be a Catholic response to universal Christophobia that really matters.
