Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome (0)

RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.

Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:

Parkland vigil

It seems on an average we hear about a mass shooting or attempted shooting every couple of months—and those are just the significant attempts, the ones reported by the news media. There are other, countless accounts of individuals bringing weapons to school or to the workplace, showing them off, and threatening classmates and co-workers: incidents which don’t make the national news and elicit little surprise from a calloused citizenry who now seem to react to such events as if they are normal, part of everyday life, to be expected in our society.

Press Release from The Family Research Council:

Dear Friends,

What do actor George Clooney, Apple, and the Washington Post all have in common? They support the radical agenda of the $320 million Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The media, big corporations, and Hollywood are pouring millions into the coffers of the SPLC for one express purpose: to marginalize and ultimately silence the voice of Christians.

Please click here to CONTRIBUTE TO FRC's $200,000 campaign to expose the SPLC right now.

If they succeed, the consequences will be devastating to your family, your children, the church, local schools, and our country. That's why I am writing with so much urgency today!

FRC's work, in addition to your financial assistance, will help us fight back with our own dedicated campaign calling out the SPLC's radical initiative, that includes...

  • "Teaching tolerance" campaign. SPLC is dead set on putting a militant LGBT curriculum in every single public school classroom in America. Those that oppose their effort are branded a "hate group," including parents who are concerned about their children's education.
  • "Best Practices" handbook. SPLC directs teachers and administrators to create an LGBT-inclusive "school climate" by using gender inclusive language and encouraging students to attend events with same-sex dates.

The SPLC's campaign also targets FRC and many other Christian, Catholic, and Pentecostal organizations as "hate groups" -- lumping us in with the KKK and Neo-Nazis.

Exposing the SPLC's radical agenda is one of the highest priorities we have here at FRC in 2018. Part of the resources we raise are dedicated to continue our tracking and researching the ins and outs of the SPLC's radical agenda, exposing it online at sites like, monitoring their activities, and alerting families, Christians, and other concerned citizens about their destructive activities.

Please let me hear from you today! Your tax-deductible gift will help us fight the SPLC with all of the muscle we can muster. With your support, we can win this battle.

Standing (Eph. 6:13),

REMNANT COMMENT: Supporting non-Catholic organizations attempting to expose the fundamentally Christophobic Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has to be one of the more legit ecumenical endeavors I can think of.

The Remnant is listed as a hate group by the SPLC too, of course—something of a badge of honor at this point—but we’re just one of a growing list of Christian groups targeted by the SPLC—one of the largest and richest ACTUAL hate groups in America.  What they want is to shut us all down. 

Over the years, we've considered the legal option, of course; but the SPLC is comprised of cunning Far-Left lawyers—experts in the use and exploitation of laws protecting free speech. The same laws that protect our freedoms of speech and the press also provide inadvertent cover for the SPLC.

Here in America, victims of this kind of slander have very little legal recourse.  They say we’re a “hate group”, but what does that mean? How is “hate” legally defined or definable? It’s just the opinion of the SPLC that we’re “haters”, and everyone is free to make of that what he wants. But it’s not technically against the law.

There is an alternative strategy, however, that is gaining plenty of traction.  I’m referring to the organized effort to defeat the SPLC in the court of public opinion. Christian groups, pro-life organizations, libertarians and a wide variety of different conservative groups have united in an effort to raise awareness about the radical agenda to silence Christian America.

We wish Godspeed and every success to the FRC as they go on offense against the Southern Poverty Law Center.  We’ll do whatever we can to help the cause, which is gaining powerful allies.  Here, for example, is John Stossel—a mainstream libertarian commentator who, though not particularly conservative, nevertheless recognizes a total fraud when he sees one:  


Editor's Note: This is a translation of a recent interview given by Father Fausto Buzzi, Assistant to the SSPX Italy District Superior to Il Giornale last week. Please pray for our friend and valued Remnant translator and his family. MJM

Il Giornale: What still separates the Saint Pius X community from the Catholic Church?

Don Fausto Buzzi: It is necessary to point out that the Society of Saint Pius X is in no way separate from the Catholic Church. We are united to the Catholic Church and we never separated from Her, despite divergences with the authorities of the Church. We are not responsible for these divergences. Archbishop Lefebvre always used to say that he was condemned because of those very things for which the popes (particularly Pope Pius XII) used to praise him. Rome was the one who changed and, with Vatican II, she distanced herself from the centuries-old Tradition of the Church.

Remnant editor, Michael J. Matt, will sit on the AOTM panel for an open discussion on the duty of Catholic men to either stand with their orthodox priests or stand against the liberals.  

Plus, why does the hiearchy of the Catholic Church pretend that the Church's teaching against the homosexual lifestyle has changed somehow, when in fact it has not? Why are they all lying to gay people?

Remnant vid Pope Paul thumbnail

Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt looks at the life and legacy of one of the worst popes in history—the man Pope Francis now intends to canonize in October. Does papal infallibility seriously come into this farce? Please! At this point, claiming the Holy Ghost has anything even to do with such an obvious political stunt—aimed at canonizing the revolution of Vatican II—borders on the blasphemous. Plus, Francis is reportedly set to stab Chinese Catholics in the back in favor of Communist puppet bishops. Everybody okay with that? Has the Vatican lost its mind completely?

pope mad

No more “humble pope”

Hey, remember five minutes ago when Pope Francis shouted at a reporter in Chile that there was “no evidence” supporting complaints against his good friend Bishop Juan Barros? And, just for good measure he accused the people accusing him – victims of sexual abuse by Barros’ mentor, the convicted sex-predator Karadima – of committing “calumny”?[1] And remember when Cardinal O’Malley told the pope off in public over the “pain” these accusations had caused the victims of sexual abuse? And then remember how the pope had apologised-except-not-really because the accusations are, after all, still lies, and that there’s still “no evidence” against Barros…?

Lefebvre Conducting Ordination

Introduction by Michael J. Matt

More than forty years ago—during the disastrous reign of Pope Paul VI, the latest candidate for a Vatican-issued Halo Award, by the way—my father, Walter L. Matt, organized the first large scale public reception in the U.S. for the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

It was held at the Radisson South Hotel, Minneapolis, on Tuesday, May 12, 1976, and its stated purpose was to assist the Archbishop in gaining a stronger foothold for the Society of St. Pius X in the States during the unprecedented crisis Blessed Pope Paul had helped unleash on the Church.

On that occasion Archbishop Lefebvre delivered an address on the desperate state of the Church at that time—42 years ago—that was never transcribed or published until we did so for the December 15, 2017 print edition of The Remnant.

Social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google are playing a sick game:

From  If Facebook killed every conservative page overnight, there would be a huge outcry. On the other hand, if Facebook slowly strangled us to death, we’d fade away and would people even notice? 

… In addition to that, as someone who has been working for a living in this business since 2005, let me drop a little truth bomb on you. We are now in a very oversaturated, corporation-dominated media environment. If you don’t already have a legacy website that captured traffic years ago and held onto it, huge traffic you can bring in from elsewhere, or millions of dollars to spend, your chances of getting a political website off the ground today are infinitesimal. 

That gets to the heart of the biggest problem conservatives don’t realize that they have. 

Social media IS the new public square. It’s the place you go when you want to reach out and find an audience. …….Except Facebook has for all intents and purposes announced that it’s killing off pages. So much for having a conservative voice there. 

…Speaking of building up an audience on a platform for years and then getting screwed, YouTube is also doing that to conservatives.

… It’s easy to say, “Build your own social media website and compete with them,” but we’re talking about companies with billions of dollars and monopolistic control of their markets. The obvious solution would be to break these companies up or to at least acknowledge their importance to modern society and regulate them heavily, but conservatives don’t seem to be interested enough in either solution to even THREATEN to do this.  Read the whole thing HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: We have reason to suspect this is happening to us here at The Remnant, too. Our Facebook numbers have plummeted over the past few months, and they've done so during the same period when other Remnant numbers were on dramatic upswing.

It seems that liberal social media rewards conservative success with the blackball.

True, it could just be bad press. There are traditional Catholic blogs out there which hardly let a day go by without blasting The Remnant. But somehow I don't think that's it. A recent RTV video hit the half-million view mark in record time (for us) and is still climbing. But the same video shows negligible interest on Facebook. The sniping of petty bloggers could hardly account for that.

What's the solution? What it's always been for us: Don't put all the Remnant eggs in one basket; keep the Print-edition alive; promote the E-edition; build up RTV’s own non-YouTube platform. Do not allow the gods of the Internet to have total access to and control over the traditional Catholic press. Why not? Because it’s their ball and it’s their playground—and they will win every time.

But you can help us fight back against these Christophobes by spreading the word to family and friends that we're here and that we’re building alternatives. The Remnant is one of the few traditional Catholic organizations in the world that is not at all web dependent.

I really don't care what the "experts" say about newsprint having joined the dinosaurs--The Remnant will not give it up. We're putting more time and money into it, in fact, and what we're finding is a growing appreciation for that effort. No one can track your movements when you’re sitting in your favorite chair next to your fire reading a newspaper, and more and more folks are glad to have that peace of mind.

Big Brother Fatigue is giving newsprint an assist, I think.

My 20-year-old is off in college.  The other day he told me he'd taken a nine iron to his smart phone and went out and bought the oldest flip phone he could find. He tells me it was the most liberating thing he’s done in a long time. He also tells me lots of good kids his age are growing sick and tired of being chained to their devices.

For me it shed new light on the rather satanic scenario that plays out in the old Eagles’ song, Hotel California: “we are all just prisoners here, of our own device.” Indeed, we are…the difference being we can check out anytime we like and, if we want, we can actually leave.

The Remnant can help, in fact, by offering an alternative to the online prison: the old newspaper, folded in half on the coffee table, unplugged, non-surveilled. Quiet. Peaceful. No popups. No ads. No gimmicks. No dark side.

I hope you'll consider subscribing to our newspaper or, at the very least, help us build up a safe and Christocentric online alternative to Facebook and YouTube and all the rest by visiting our website every day and on your own, i.e., without having to be reminded by our social media “partners” which are, it would seem, actively working against us and against everything for which we stand, especially the Social Kingship of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Staged Remnant with glasses

From important causes like #FreeMeekMill (see below), to taking a knee for the National Anthem, our NFL heroes continue to keep it real, America.

From Deena Zaru, CNN:  Meek Mill might not be able to attend this year's Super Bowl, but the imprisoned rapper was with his home team in spirit on Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles took the field to his 2012 song "Dreams and Nightmares" --- the ultimate underdog anthem.

Mill was sentenced to two to four years in prison in September by Philadelphia Judge Genece E. Brinkley, who cited a failed drug test and the rapper's noncompliance with a court order restricting his travel.

The rapper, who is a big football fan, appeared in court following probation violations related to a 2008 gun and drug case. Outrage over his sentence moved beyond the courtroom and sparked a criminal justice debate.

At Sunday's game, Minnesota Timberwolves player Karl-Anthony Towns was spotted on the sidelines wearing an Eagles jersey with #FreeMeekMill, which has become a rallying cry among the rapper's fans and activists.

The Eagles also showed solidarity with Mill when they celebrated their January 21 win against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game by blasting "Dreams and Nightmares" in the locker room. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: According to, which provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player arrests and charges, it's now been eleven whole days since a National Football League hero of the gridiron has been arrested. The record number of days between arrests is sixty-five, but the average is only seven.

Of the 32 teams in the NFL, the Denver Broncos top this list in number of players arrested, with our very own Minnesota Vikings coming in a close second and the Houston Texans bringing up the rear. The crimes run the usual gambit from DUI to sexual assault to murder and drug use.

Top "player" on the arrest list is cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones of the Cincinnati Bengals, who comes in with a whopping ten arrests, the most recent on January 3, 2018. After Pacman's arrest for disorderly conduct, he spent the night in jail. Why? Because, naturally, after his arrest he became combative, and remained that way throughout his booking process at the Hamilton County Jail. Finally, he had to be placed in "a restraint chair," Hamilton County sheriff's spokesman Mike Robison said in a news release.

When a female nurse, following normal protocol, tried to examine Jones, he “proceeded to spit on her.”  Among the multiple charges Jones faces is a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance.  Now let’s remember, this guy has a contract with the Bengals worth $24 million over three years. He’s a professional!

With heroes like these is it any wonder why the social fabric of this country is becoming a bit threadbare? 

We’re solemnly assured that the reason these professionals take a knee during the National Anthem is to show solidarity with their brothers suffering from police brutality. Well maybe so, but if they were to adopt a similar attitude of zero tolerance where their fellow NFL players are concerned--especially those beating people up, spitting at police nurses, using drugs and getting themselves arrested all over the country--maybe that "brutality" would subside a bit.

In the meantime, let's take a look at the positive side of the NFL -- it brings communities together. Here, for example, is how fans from the City of Brotherly Love celebrated their club's victory over the Patriots in last Sunday's Super Bowl:

 Where it used to be that to the victors went the spoils, it would now seem to be the other way around—with the spoils going to the losers, at least in the sense of being spared having their cities torn apart in the ensuing victory celebration.

I'm not sure I can come up with an historical precedent whereby the victors proceeded to sack and loot their own city. But, then again, we've never seen a more enlightened and progressive civilization than ours so, naturally, there'd be no precedent.

20121022 MEEKIn the meantime, yes, #FreeMeekMill—another fun loving kid from the neighborhood, whose endorsement by the Philadelphia Eagles typifies according the American Thinker, "everything about how far professional football has fallen and how the NFL celebrates the obscene, the vulgar, the dangerous, and the foolish."

Regardless of the rapper’s unsettled life, writes Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston in a February 4 column, the Meek Mill rap song the Eagles pumped into U.S. Bank Stadium as they ran onto the Super Bowl field to the delight of their legions of little fans is "an unsavory mix of sexism, violence, and a constant use of the 'n-word.' The song is filled with the sexist treatment of women, sexual exploitation, and constant use of the 'F-word.' The song is also replete with the use of the 'n-word' over and over again." 

(We'd intended to make a cleaned up RTV video of the Meek Mill Super Bowl anthem but decided against it after realizing it would take hours just to edit out all the "f-words'. Go birds!)

This was the same song, by the way, that our new Super Bowl heroes insisted on blasting after their NFC Championship victory. It’s their fun little theme song, I guess, which Daily News columnist Jenice Armstrong slammed, saying, “When you celebrate winning the NFC Championship with a song that glorifies murder and sexual promiscuity, that’s beneath you. It looks bad.”

Yeah, that's it. It looks bad. Glorifying murder and sexual promiscuity to millions of kids just . doesn't . look . good!  And although he sat in jail during this year's Super Bowl for violating his probation, this felon's anthem to murder and promiscuity was heard all around the world. #BoycottNFL

a new thynbIn the spirit of Madame Defarge: Michael Matt takes a hard look at the George Soros-backed Women's March in D.C., New York, London, Rome and all around the world--and asks the question: What are they really protesting and what does it mean for our country and for all of us?

What happens if Trump loses in 2020?  And what's with the little reddish hats? Do these not harken back to "les bonnet rouges"--the red "liberty hats" worn by the terrorists who beheaded Catholic France back in 1789? What's the connection? Why do these women hate us President Trump? Why do they hate pro-lifers?
