Pope Francis Appoints Homosexual Pederast Voyeur As Bishop And Ignores Outrage And Demands To Rescind It From Faithful

How does it feel to be a Faithful Catholic in the Diocese of Osorno, Chile where in five days the new bishop will take over?  Normally a cause for celebration and well wishes, the appointment of this new bishop, “Father” Juan Barros, by Pope Francis has resulted in 1,300 of the diocesan faithful and thirty priests to petition the pope to rescind the appointment.  The problem is that the bishop to be is a homosexual and enjoyed watching his homosexual priest colleague commit pederasty, and then covered it up when complaints were made.  Moreover, this isn’t old news from decades ago, but became known within the last five years.  Despite the evidence that this bishop is a menace to young men, a pervert, and a scandalous disgrace, Pope Francis has foisted this “man” on the diocese as their leader.  Even though the people there have been expressing their disgust and outrage since the appointment was announced in January, Pope Francis has not heeded the calls from them to correct this affront.  Based upon his micromanagement of the hurt feelings of adulterers and transsexuals over the past year, it is difficult to believe that Pope Francis isn’t aware of the situation.  Perhaps, telephone connections are not so good between Rome and Osorno?

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Juan Carlos Cruz recalls that he and another teen boy would lie down on the priest’s bed, one resting his head at the man’s shoulder, another sitting near his feet. The priest would kiss the boys and grope them, he said, all while the Rev. Juan Barros watched.

“Barros was there, and he saw it all,” Cruz, now a 51-year-old journalist, told The Associated Press.

Barros has been tapped by Pope Francis to become bishop of a southern Chilean diocese this month, provoking an unprecedented outcry by abuse victims and Catholic faithful who contend he covered up sexual abuse committed by his mentor and superior, the Rev. Fernando Karadima, in the 1980s and ’90s. A Vatican investigation found Karadima guilty in 2011 and sentenced the now 84-year-old priest to a cloistered life of “penitence and prayer” for what is Chile’s highest-profile case of abuse by a priest.

Barros has declined to comment publicly on allegations against him. Now bishop for Chile’s armed forces, he has said he learned of Karadima’s abuse through a 2010 news report he saw on television, according to court records.

While not directly accused of abuse, Barros is said by at least three victims to have witnessed the sexual molestation at the Sacred Heart of Jesus church, part of the El Bosque parish that serves an affluent neighborhood of Santiago.

That history has parishioners, clergy and lawmakers in this predominantly Catholic country protesting the pope’s decision to appoint Barros, 58, to become spiritual leader over the diocese in Osorno, about 580 miles (930 kilometers) south of Santiago.

More than 1,300 church members in Osorno, along with some 30 priests from the diocese and 51 of Chile’s 120 members of Parliament, sent letters to Francis in February urging him to rescind the appointment, which was announced in January and is set to take effect on March 21.

This is the best the pope could do to provide a spiritual leader?  What spirit exactly is at work here?  How does this help the Church and the needs of the Faithful to have this exemplar of everything wrong with the priesthood forced on them as their bishop?

I saw Karadima and Juan Barros kissing and touching each other. The groping generally came from Karadima touching Barros’ genitals,” Cruz said in a January letter to Monsignor Ivo Scapolo, the papal nuncio in Chile. Cruz provided a copy of the letter to the AP.

Despite Francis’ pledge to have no tolerance for abuse by priests, James Hamilton, another victim of Karadima’s, said the appointment demonstrates to him that the church “had not changed.”

Hamilton, now a 49-year-old doctor, said Barros enjoyed watching Karadima commit the abuse.

“I saw how Barros watched it all,” he said.

Just last week, Pope Francis discussed with Mexican television the problem of Catholics leaving the Church in droves and he diagnosed “clericalism” and “bad homilies” as the culprits.  Homosexual priests and bishops and the scandalous “pederastoral” conduct of these perverts never came to mind.  No, these evil men are good for the Church.

What response from the Vatican has there been?  Complete silence from Lombardi and “on Saturday, Chile’s papal nuncio published a letter urging parishioners in Osorno to welcome Barros and ‘prepare, by way of prayer and good works, for the beginning of his pastoral governance.’”  The same one who knew the sordid perverse details.

How’s that for hearing the cries of the sheep?

We’ve seen enough about the damages that are inflicted by perverts as bishops.  If Pope Francis doe not change this, the people there should keep their young men away from this bishop and his seminaries, and withhold their money from the collection baskets.  It’s only a matter of time before the payouts will be made and the diocese bankrupted.

The Polish Bishops Episcopal Conference rejects Holy Communion for the divorced and remarried ~ the Bishops will “remain faithful to the teaching of John Paul II…”

The Polish Bishops Episcopal Conference is holding its annual plenary meeting. At a press conference which dealt with a number of issues, the issue of admitting to Holy Communion Catholics who had divorced and entered a second, illicit relationship (Adultery) was raised. Bishop Mizinski assured Catholics that the Church in Poland will be not be “listening to the voice of the world to match the Gospels”, but rather following Christ and conforming the world to Our Divine Saviour. 

This is a major victory for Catholics worldwide who are gravely concerned with the pressure being brought to bare by the Adulterist and Homosexualist Parties, who seek openly to overturn doctrine, following the heresies that were surreptitiously introduced into the truly scandalous mid-term relatio. In rejecting the Adulterists, the Polish bishops have thrown down the Catholic gauntlet before these neo-protestant heretics who would seek to admit to Holy Communion those living in gravely sinful, adulterous relationships, blaspheming Our Blessed Saviour in the process and defiling the Bride of Christ, the Church. If there is going to be a schism, it will be the heretics leaving Christ’s spotless Bride. 

From Christiana Polonia: 

Journalists present at the conference, asked about the possibility of granting Holy Communion. for divorced. Archbishop Jędraszewski confirmed that the response of the Polish Episcopate will remain faithful to the teaching of John Paul II, as formulated in the Apostolic Exhortation “Familiaris Consortio”. The Metropolitan of Lodz also rejected the suggestion that the Pope Francis wants to liberalize this teaching, but rather encourages open discussion of the Synod Fathers, who do not seek to change the doctrinal principles. It can not be separated from the doctrine of pastoral care. – “The Holy Father is not the creator of the principles that guided the Church, reminded Archbishop Jędraszewski. “He is not the creator of doctrine, he is its first guard in communion with the entire episcopate”.

Church Turned Upside Down: Why are the Enemies of Catholic Truth the Main Defenders of Pope Francis?

by Matteo Carnieletto

Let’s be honest: the most progressive fringe of the Church likes Francis. This is the fringe that during the pontificate of Benedict XVI kept attacking the Pope, and now they are dressed up as papal cheerleaders who are always at hand to defend the Pope—the Pope, please note, who is Francis, not the papacy as an institution. Right from the time of the publication of Non è Francesco by Antonio Socci, the new defenders of the “Church that is poor and for the poor” have not hesitated to come to the defense of the Pope by harshly attacking that Siena journalist. The same thing happened at the publication of the article by Vittorio Messori this past December 24. In fact, Paolo Farinella, a priest and writer for Il Fatto Quotidiano, who defined the pontificate of Benedict XVI as “a disaster for the Church”, launched an appeal to stop the attacks on Pope Francis. Has Farinella undergone a conversion to orthodox Catholicism? Not at all. He has simply found in Francis an ideal mouthpiece.

Among those who signed the appeal is the group “We Are Church”, who with great gusto expressed their appreciation for Benedict’s act of resignation: “the most innovative act of his pontificate”; Alex Zanotelli, the pacifist missionary who has said that he came to understand who Christ was thanks to Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Don Milani and Don Mazzolari; the Christian Base Communities, who, on their website, posted a review of a book called The Queer God, or rather “the poof God, the faggot God”, published by Claudiana, the Waldensian publishing house. And finally (but the list could go on and on) among the signatures is that of Don Aldo Antonelli, “a troublesome and red priest” who, with candor, wrote on November 1, 2007: “Dear Pope Benedict, I do not understand you.” And after a long series of recommendations that were not asked for, he concluded: “In my theological studies I learned that we priests are supposed to be talking to poor beggars of this earth like Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). But I have the impression that you prefer to have conversations with men like Dives,” that is, with the rich and powerful.

In this way the parties are reversed. The apologists like Messori and Socci who have always defended the Church, now find themselves in the role of “adversaries”, who are attacked by those who, casting away the clothes of the street priest, are now wearing the pontifical livery.

Note: As we have often noted here, both Socci and Messori were considered mainstream (not even exactly conservative, more appropriately conservative-friendly) Catholic apologists, probably the most important in Italy in the past 40 years. They remain extremely popular in Italy, precisely because they always defended Catholic truth in a secularizing society, and they were never, ever at all, even close to Traditionalists. So the current wave of hatred against them, even from “official Catholic” news sources, is nothing short of astonishing.

Cardinal Burke: “I Call Upon All Catholics to…Highlight the Truth on Marriage”

Named by Benedict XVI prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, a dicastery of the Roman Curia, American cardinal Raymond Burke was discharged from this mission by Pope Francis, and named chaplain of the Order of Malta. An extremely rare event in the history of the Church, he dared to criticize publicly the method followed by the Pope during the Synod on the Family.

The weekly magazine of major French daily Le Figaro dedicated an issue last December 2014 to what it calls the “Secret War in the Vatican: How Pope Francis shakes up the Church”. The general theme is that already mentioned elsewhere, of an authoritarian pope, his strong decisions, and individuals who are dissatisfied or merely puzzled with his procedures and ideas – and are therefore eliminated one by one.

The special also includes the following interview granted by Cardinal Burke:

Le Figaro Magazine – Can a cardinal be in disagreement with the pope?

Cardinal Burke – It is certainly possible for a cardinal to be in disagreement with the pope on matters of procedure or of a pastoral line. But it is on the other hand impossible for there to be a divergence on a matter of doctrine and discipline of the Church. This means therefore that a Cardinal, in certain situations, has the duty to say what he truly thinks to the pope. Obviously, he must always express himself in a respectful manner, because the pope represents the petrine ministry. But if the pope has cardinals around him, it is precisely in order to give him advice.

Was too much significance given to the divergences noticed during the Synod on the Family?

That which is strange in this dossier of the remarried divorcees is that those who recalled and supported that which the Latin Church has always taught have been accused of being against the Holy Father, and of not being in harmony with the Church… It is amazing! That being said, the Church has always known theological disputes and strong confrontations in which theologians and cardinals were led to give their views. If therefore I published, along with other cardinals, a study on this theme to express my opinion, it is in the spirit of providing a true theological discussion to to reach the truth.

Were you shocked with what took place in the Synod?

The synod was a difficult experience. There was a line, that of Cardinal Kasper, we might say, behind which lined up those who had in their hands the direction of the synod. In fact, the intermediate document [relatio post disceptationem] seemed to have had already been written before the interventions of the Synodal Fathers! And according to a single line, in favor of the position of Cardinal Kasper… The homosexual question was also introduced, which has no relation with the question of marriage, by looking for positive elements in it. Another highly troubling point: the intermediate text made no reference to Scripture, nor to the Tradition of the Church, nor to the teaching of John Paul II on conjugal love. It was therefore highly off-putting. As also the fact that in the final report were kept paragraphs on homosexuality and the remarried divorcees that had not however been adopted by the requisite majority of bishops.

What are the stakes in what has become a controversy?

In an age filled with confusion, as we see with Gender Theory, we need the teaching of the Church on marriage. Yet, we are on the contrary pushed towards a direction for the admission to communion of divorced and remarried persons. Without mentioning this obsession with lightening the procedures of annulment of the marital bond. All this will lead de facto to a kind of “Catholic divorce”, and to the weakening of the indissolubility of marriage, whose principle is nonetheless reaffirmed. However, the Church must defend marriage, and not weaken it. The indissolubility of marriage is not a penance, nor a suffering. It is a great beauty for those who live it, it is a source of joy. I am therefore very worried, and I call upon all Catholics, laymen, priests, and bishops, to involve themselves, from now up to the upcoming Synodal assembly, in order to highlight the truth on marriage.
