LifeSite News reports that The Pontifical Academy of Science (PAS) has announced yet another population control conference. You can read the article here.

The bottom line is that the invited speakers at this conference include various climate alarmists who zealously preach the pretext of man-made climate change to justify their agenda of population control (including birth control and abortion) which must be carried out by global governance in order to save the planet.

Just in from Joshua J. McElwee of National Catholic Reporter: Francis puts a new sign on his door: 'No whining'

Pope Francis has placed a new sign on the door of his room in the Vatican's Domus Sanctae Marthae hotel. "No whining" it reads, warning that offenders "are subject to developing a victim complex, resulting in a lowering ... of their capacity to solve problems."

"The penalty is doubled whenever the violation is committed in the presence of children," the sign advises, adding: "To be your best you have to focus on your own potential and not on your limits, so stop whining and act to make your life better."  Read More HERE


Chris Jackson's Comment:  “The irony never ends. The scary part is it is totally lost on Francis.” 

(CNA/EWTN News):

On Wednesday Pope Francis said that following Christ means taking a path contrary to that of the world, and being prepared to suffer because of this; though we have hope because of God’s constant presence.

“Persecution is not a contradiction to the gospel, but is part of it: if they persecuted our Master, how can we hope that we will be spared the struggle?” he said June 28.

“However, in the midst of the whirlwind, the Christian must not lose hope, thinking he has been abandoned. Jesus reassures his disciples saying, ‘Even the hairs of your head are all counted.’ As much as to say that none of the sufferings of man, even the most minute and hidden, are invisible to the eyes of God.”

“God sees, and surely protects; and will give his ransom.”

Pope Francis continued his catechesis on the theme of Christian hope during the weekly general audience Wednesday in St. Peter’s Square. This time he reflected on the counter-cultural life of the Christian, which will mean withstanding persecution on some level, and for some, even martyrdom.   “Christians are therefore men and women ‘against the current,’” he said. “It is normal: since the world is marked by sin, manifested in various forms of egoism and injustice, those who follow Christ walk in the opposite direction.” READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: What in the world has Pope Francis taught that would in any way lead to persecution? No "proselytism”, no dogma, no rigidity, "who am I to judge?", divorce is ok, ecological virtues, etc.  The man sucks up to the modern West at every opportunity to the point there is nothing to be persecuted over. It's called human respect. And eventually it's going to run out. 

Is Pope Francis finally beginning to sense that there might be a shelf life for Greg Burke's awesomely-humble pope shtick?

 

On May 20, 2017 New York Times writer, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, published a feature piece entitled, Pregnant at 18. Hailed by Abortion Foes. Punished by Christian School.”  The Christian school’s crime? Not allowing a visibly pregnant and unmarried eighteen year old student, Maddi Runkles, to “walk” in her high school graduation ceremony.

Miss Runkles admits to breaking the school code and knew she would face “punishment.”  However, it seems that to a lot of people, the school board’s decision to not allow Miss Runkles to walk across the stage at graduation was somehow cruel and unusual.

Miss Runkles was pretty upset. As she stated to the New York Times reporter:

“Some pro-life people are against the killing of unborn babies, but they won’t speak out in support of the girl who chooses to keep her baby,” she said. “Honestly, that makes me feel like maybe the abortion would have been better. Then they would have just forgiven me, rather than deal with this visible consequence.”
A-CNN’s Don Persiflage had the opportunity to sit down with President Donald Trump today and conduct an interview. President Trump is currently running to be Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. What follows is the transcript of that interview:

Don: Thank you for coming on the show, Mr. President; we’re honored to have you.

Trump: You’re welcome, Don. As you know I’m doing you a favor as your network has been downgraded to extremely fake news in my opinion. It’s just above Church Militant at this point, to be honest with you.

Don: Well, we try to report the news as fairly as we can, but thank you Mr. President. As we know you are currently President of the United States, yet you are still running for pope. Now that you are president, wouldn’t you have to resign the presidency if elected pope? READ MORE HERE

On January 12th I authored a short blog post entitled, “Resisting Papal Errors: Another Historical Precedent for Cardinal Burke.”  In it I recounted a little known tale of the Archbishop of Paris, Christophe de Beaumont, resisting the tragic 1773 brief of Pope Clement XIV suppressing the Jesuits. The post apparently hit a nerve, stoking the ire of the sedevacantist website Novus Ordo Watch.  So much so that the site published an almost 5,600 word tome condemning my piece entitled, “Resisting the Pope? “The Remnant” and the Suppression of the Jesuits.

The author, presumably Mario Derksen, attempts to point out various supposed flaws in my Remnant blog post; a post consisting primarily of quotations from two Catholic historians. The blog post was written not as an exhaustive research paper, but in order to make the historical letter of resistance from Archbishop Beaumont to Pope Clement XIV, which even Mr. Derksen admits is authentic, more widely known to Catholics.  

As it turns out, Abp. Beaumont’s letter of resistance was far more objectionable to Mr. Derksen than it was to Pope Clement XIV. This is evident as Mr. Derksen used 5,600 more words than the late pope to respond to it. Although I don’t normally make a habit of acknowledging such erroneous rebuttals, I believe in this case responding to some of the more outlandish claims in his piece might be beneficial to any confused readers.

As I started my Ash Wednesday and Lent, one of the first things I was treated to was the Pope downplaying penance and preaching instead about hope at his general audience today. Thus, the Pope of the Catholic Church has gutted the entire purpose of Lent on Ash Wednesday and has potentially taken the air out of the spiritual sails of up to a billion Catholics. What’s left? I honestly don’t know what inspires this pope and the many priests and bishops who believe this way to even get up in the morning for the next forty days. What possible purpose does Lent have for such men?
