The loquacious pontiff cannot silence his tongue, unless one of his top Vatican clerics is arrested during a drug-filled gay orgy, allegedly involving minor boys on the Vatican premises. Then, and only then, Francis is cagily silent and missing in action from the Vatican press office. So much for the papal crackdown on human trafficking of minors and clerical sex abuse! Apropos of the famous line from the Twilight Zone, “What you are about to witness is a nightmare.” During this interminable papacy, Francis, along with his papal prolocutors of Spadaro, Martin, Kasper, Rosica, Ivereigh and Sorondo, (to name a few) incessantly take cheap Alinsky shots at the Catholic faithful. Never in the history of the Church has a Pope employed a flank of flaks to disparage and mock the laity. The latest papal invective is unleashed by Bergoglio’s Jesuit media pal, Fr. Antonio Spadaro, S.J., editor of the journal La Civilita Cattolica, who launched the newest papal harangue on traditional Catholics in a July 13th article entitled, “The Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism” which was coauthored by Presbyterian Rev. Marcelo Figueroa, editor-in-chief of the Argentinean edition of L’Osservatore Romano. The strategically timed and well publicized article criticized a sinister plot, described as an “ecumenism of hate” perpetrated by an alliance of American fundamentalists, both evangelicals and Catholics. Even the Vatican has now resorted to calling conservatives haters, mimicking the same slurs as the liberal elite and Hollywood celebrities, Chelsea Handler and Lena Dunham. How nightmarish. Who are these haters? Certainly not the Islamists that are perpetuating genocide against Christians, nor the repressive North Korean regime, nor the brutal Venezuelan dictator, not even the Communist tyrant of Cuba, no, the Pope aims his vitriol for none other than traditional faithful Catholics, who foolishly cling to the Ten Commandments and Catechism of the Catholic Church. In the words of Rod Serling, “You are entering the twilight zone.” Spadaro S.J. disingenuously asserts that his article is “not our intention to demonize anybody,” despite labeling traditional Catholics as haters, and singling out Trump Senior Advisor, Steve Bannon, as a “promoter of apocalyptic geopolitics.” Not surprisingly, Spadaro drops the Bannon slur in the notoriously favored Francis footnote. See fn. 1. The Vatican cleverly buries smack talk in footnotes, so readers won’t think that they are unmerciful. This well honed literary tactic was also deployed cunningly in Amoris Laetitia by changing Catholic dogma in a footnote, conveniently providing deniability and detachment. Francis and Fr. Spadaro, S.J. In a separate interview about his La Civilita Cattolica article, Spadaro, S.J. reveals the underlying political motivation behind the Vatican “ecumenism of hate” rant: “But certainly, we see the multiplication of websites, blogs, and Twitter accounts that tend to move public opinion and react in lively and often in a violent and fundamentalist way. These realities create a bubble within themselves...It is found everywhere. I do not say it is a majority phenomenon, but it is something that is present in the life of the People of God today.” Apparently, traditional Catholic bloggers have gotten under Francis’ thin skin. The underlying cause of the Pope’s angst is that the conservative Catholic bloggers and websites are making their voice heard by daring to promote the Catholic faith and exposing the papal plots and diabolical alliances. Fr. Spadaro, Francis’ close confidante, is alarmed at traditionalists on the Internet because they tend to move public opinion. Horrors! Francis, the Merciful, Inc. is distraught over its declining papal popularity poll numbers and blames the conservative blogosphere. ( Preview the New Print Edition of The Remnant HERE ) With its immense wealth and mighty media global reach, the Vatican stoops to trash the lone blogger with a house full of children, struggling to pay his Internet bandwidth, who labors in his basement spreading the message of Our Lady of Fatima and Jesus Christ. This is who the Vatican calls a hater? This is the object of papal wrath? This is the man whom the Vatican calls violent? Just imagine the Vatican press office fuming that the Canon212 visitor count is growing; Skojec’s twitter account is heating up, those rigorists at The Remnant are doing their thing, and those obsessed pro-lifers at LifesiteNews just posted an online petition! They are everywhere...Let’s call them haters! The Forgotten Man The traditional Catholic journalists and bloggers represent the forgotten man, struggling to support a family, fighting against a corrupt and immoral culture, and desperately trying to salvage the Catholic Faith from a radical papacy which promotes a dangerous secular globalist’s agenda. Inexplicably, the Francis Papacy has aligned with the Radical Left, using its “hate” lingo, mouthing the same talking points, adopting its enemies list and aligning with the Soros agenda. Fr. Spadaro arrogantly mimics the memes of the ACLU, the SPLC, and NOW, when he reaps scorn on “whites from the deep American South.” With Donald Trump in the Oval Office, the Pope is no longer a global player and he senses his immense personal power vacuum. Francis lost his most powerful political partner, Barack Obama. The high stake political deals of Iran, Cuba, and the Paris Climate Treaty were hatched and covertly negotiated with the back channel assistance of Francis and his radical papal courtiers. Bergoglio so loved playing heady global politics with Obama. Those days are over. Inexplicably, Francis chose to dangerously align the Roman Catholic Church with its historical mortal enemy, Islam. Spadaro haughtily elevates Francis for “his ecumenism that moves under the urge of inclusion, peace, encounter and bridges.” These inane papal platitudes of welcoming bridges and inter faith dialogue only embolden jihadists. So, too, Spadaro imitates Hollywood intellectual heavy weights, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, when he trashes traditional Christians with the overused and trite liberal screed of “xenophobia and Islamophobic vision that wants walls and purifying deportations.” Name calling is nothing more than Spadaro borrowing a page from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. Ask French priest, Fr. Jacques Hamel about his experience with Islam’s peaceful encounter. Too late. The 85-year-old cleric was beheaded at Holy Mass by Islamists, and too late for the countless Coptic priests brutally murdered by ISIS. Pope Francis, your welcoming bridges failed to protect your slaughtered Catholic priests who didn’t have the same protection as your 39-foot-high Vatican walls. Francis will remain silent and, thus, complicit about the ongoing civilization jihad. While his flock is butchered on beaches, and pilgrimage buses, and at Holy Mass, he’s more worried about rising sea levels and air conditioners and pleasing George Soros. Traditional Catholics and their Evangelical brethren have the power to dramatically change the political and religious course in the U.S. and around the world. The forgotten man stands unfazed and undeterred by liberal bullies, including papal ones, who resort to ridicule and scorn. The forgotten man understands that humanity faces a mortal enemy who seeks to destroy Western civilization. The lines have been drawn, and the stakes have never been higher for the Catholic Church and America. The forgotten man will not back down to threats or name calling. The forgotten man is everywhere, and not only in the deep South. He has found his voice and will not be intimidated by smear campaigns from prelates hiding behind a Vatican fortress and protected by the Swiss Guard. With his pen and his voice, he will expose papal heresy. With his courage and might, he will fight jihadists, preserve Western civilization, and struggle for the salvation of souls in Holy Mother Church with the help of Almighty God. It's time to Make Catholicism Great Again.
