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:View items...

WikiLeaks Release! More Podesta Emails
Drip, drip, drip. The Tiber is overflowing with leaks from WikiLeaks documents which reveal the relationship between notorious George Soros operatives and high level Vatican prelates. They expose that the enemy scaled the Vatican wall and is now ensconced behind the Bronze Doors of St. Peter’s.
In August 2016, the first batch of shocking emails were disclosed in the DCLeaks dump which uncovered George Soros’ Open Society documents confirming the close collaboration between Soros operatives and the Vatican, highlighted in a Soros Open Society U.S. Board Meeting Report in May 2015. The notes discussed the expenditure of $650,000 to PICO to organize activities to engage Pope Francis on economic and racial issues:

Dear Online Friends of The Remnant:
The Remnant has a special offer for you, but first I’d like to introduce you to the other side of The Remnant. It may come as a surprise to some visitors to this website that The Remnant is first and foremost a traditional Catholic newspaper—the oldest in the world, in fact. Established just after the close of the Second Vatican Council in 1967, we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary next year.
A Word from the Editor of The Remnant: Special Offer, Brief Introduction FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Dear Michael Matt,
We are sending the following Appeal and Petition to you, with the hope that you might give it some additional publicity as soon as practical. As you will see, it is a plea for scholars and writers and academics to join us in pledging their support for the agenda advocated by presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. Among the signatories are a number of traditional Catholic academics, and we hope to enlist additional names.
We believe the viciously anti-Catholic positions of Hillary Clinton and her program to impose a not-so-soft globalist totalitarianism on this nation, must be opposed. And we hope to get this message out to various web sites and online sources.
Thank you, and God bless your efforts!
The following statement of support for Donald Trump is intended to counteract the dishonest presentation of this promising presidential candidate by much of the national media. Those who have attached their signatures to this statement are accredited scholars, mostly with PhD s, who are endorsing Donald Trump as a credible candidate for the presidency and as the only barrier now standing between us and (Heaven forfend!) the election of Hillary Clinton. It is our hope that the appearance of this statement on respected websites will generate signatures from other scholars and that our statement of support can be placed in the national press. We are fully aware that signing this statement will not bring the signatory the same professional rewards as speaking at a conference on why Trump is a “fascist” or on why he reminds one of the late German Fuhrer. Expressing support for the Republican presidential candidate undoubtedly requires more courage, particularly for someone in the academic profession. But we trust that there are lots of courageous scholars who read this website and who will be eager to append their signatures to our statement.
Conveners of this list
We the undersigned scholars hereby express our support for the presidential bid of Donald J. Trump and his agenda for a renewed America, and we invite others to join us. While we recognize that our candidate may be an imperfect vehicle, the agenda he has laid out for America is critical if our nation is to avoid continuing decline. The prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is more dangerous than the past personal imperfections of a Donald Trump.
Contrary to what is disseminated by both the mainstream media and by certain members of the Washington/New York political establishment, supporters of the Trump agenda are by no means limited to the badly educated and ill-informed. We feature numerous academics and other professionals who share the vision of “making America great again.” We are vitally concerned about reversing the direction in which this country has been moving for decades under both Democratic and Republican administrations alike. We want to move away from harming our economically strained middle and working classes. We reject the pattern of stifling freedom of thought and speech that is being imposed by government agencies, as well as by the media and our universities in the name of an increasingly restrictive political correctness. Moreover, the Trump agenda emphasizes the importance of the rule of law in civilized society, and the necessity of law and order, and the protection of private property. The Donald Trump agenda is committed to making our borders and our streets truly safe and secure.
Finally, we see a Trump administration as an opportunity to give new direction to American foreign policy. Neither an isolationist retrenchment nor an ideological crusade, a Trump administration will base its dealings with other nations firmly on rational American interests. Such an agenda has deep and honorable roots in American history. Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that our nation must chart a path in international relations that avoids the policy of playing policeman to the entire world or confusing statecraft with a globalist democratic agenda that supposedly fits all situations. We believe a Donald Trump administration will offer an alternative to the failed policies of recent presidents.
We invite those scholars who share this vision of a renewed America to join us in this ongoing effort. We believe this agenda to make America great again transcends political parties and is vital for our future.

Scholars and Academics Pledge Support for Policies of Donald TrumpBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
This just in from our friends at LifeSiteNews:
BALTIMORE, Maryland , October 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholic Relief Services facilitated the distribution of more than two million units of various types of contraception, including abortifacients, in the Democratic Republic of Congo over the course of four years, the Lepanto Institute says in a new report.
The program resulted in skyrocketing birth control use in the region where previously residents had minimal knowledge of contraception, says Lepanto.
The US Bishops’ international relief agency was an implementing partner from 2006 to 2010 in the US-funded Project AXxes, in which “family planning” was a “key objective,” delivering contraception, including abortifacients, Intra Uterine Devices (IUD) and related insertion kits, and also surgical sterilization kits, according to the program documents.

REMNANT COMMENT: Right! So, every year the Catholic faithful are required to slog through Catholic Relief Sunday, where sermons (sorry, 'homilies') panhandling for Catholic Relief Services assure them that God needs their support of the charlatans over at CRS.
This year they really laid it on thick, telling Catholics that donating to CRS actually "helps Jesus in disguise." I'll say! – if the Jesus Who’s out there promoting condoms and abortions is anything at all, He's deep under cover. In fact, maybe it’s not Jesus under there at all. Maybe it's just the ghost of Margaret Sanger pretending to be Jesus.
Anyway, you know what? We're quite done here. Not another penny. In fact, the next time any priest—following his bishop's order, no doubt—comes into the pulpit to insult the intelligence of his flock by claiming that CRS is doing "God's holy work" let's simply stand up and walk out, families in tow.
Maybe, in the case of some of the good priests who agree with us on this scam, we can prevail upon them to walk out with us. (Wouldn’t that be fun?)
Really, enough already! It will be a cold day in Hell before they get any more money from us. In fact, they'll have to pry it from our cold, dead fingers.
Have a nice day, Your Excellencies. Or, as Jesus might say: Repent now... or go to hell!
Catholic Relief Services SCAM ExposedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
First Lady of American Conservatism, Phyllis Schlafly (RIP)-- faithful Catholic and lifelong foe of judicial activism--endorsed Donald Trump. Now why would she do that?
(A Remnant Exclusive)
Conservatives need to get their act together to prevent Hillary Clinton from claiming the presidency. A unified Republican Party can win this election. The latest Los Angeles Times-USC poll puts Donald Trump up one point. With three weeks until election day, the GOP ticket is within striking distance of pulling off an upset.
Conservatives—Not Trump—Might Well Lose This Election FeaturedBy: Brett M. Decker
"This brief which destroys the Company of Jesus is nothing other than an isolated and particular judgment, pernicious, reflecting little honor on the Papal tiara and deleterious to the glory of the Church and to the glory and propagation of the orthodox (i.e. Catholic) faith….Holy Father, it is not possible for me to commit the Clergy to the acceptance of the said brief." - Archbishop Christophe de Beaumont of Paris to Pope Clement XIV
Indulgence in a fetish is a dangerous habit, blocking, as it does, access to the full reality of the given aspect of life that it masquerades, but escape from its influence is immensely difficult. The fetish in question here is “the papal fetish”; the obsessive insistence upon the orthodoxy and goodness of all statements and actions coming from a reigning Pontiff, regardless of every indication that the opposite may actually be true. And, as with fetishes in general, this papal fetish blocks access to the full appreciation of the glorious purpose that the Papacy really has, preferring a mess of willful pottage to the banquet of truth it is meant to offer to the faithful.
Fighting the Papal Fetish to Win Back the PapacyBy: John Rao | Remnant Columnist, New York
There's a Reason the World Loves Pope Francis
So, here's the headline: Pope rips ‘hypocrisy’ of Christians who reject refugees, says proselytism is ‘venom’ Nope, it's not The Remnant's. This time it's CatholicCulture.org. But, wait! There's more:
Pope Francis assailed Christians who oppose the acceptance of refugees, and those who seek to convince others of the truth of their faith, in remarks to a visiting German group on October 13.
Breaking away from his prepared remarks, the Pope said told the ecumenical group that he is appalled by “the contradiction of those who want to defend Christianity in the West, and, on the other hand, are against refugees and other religions.” He also spoke of his distaste for proselytism.
“It’s not right to convince someone of your faith,” the Pope said. “Proselytism is the strongest venom against the path of ecumenism.” READ HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: I just can't wait for Jimmy Akin to give us 11 things to know and share about why this seemingly confusing and angry papal rant is, in fact, a brilliant Catholic answer.
Perhaps, Jimmy shares the Pope's contention that something must be done about all those millions and millions of Catholics out there who, every day, go about foisting themselves on non-Catholics, cajoling them to convert, terrorizing them with medieval claims that the jaws of hell yawn wide before the unsuspecting non-Catholic who refuses to convert.
This intimidating "proselytism," so characteristic of modern Catholics, is a huge problem. YUGE! And I for one am happy the pope is finally tackling it. It's what I call "guts poping". But Jimmy will explain it far better than I can.
