Commentary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
The Remnant is a newspaper in the USA run by Michael Matt, whose family has been publishing a newspaper for Catholics outside of the jurisdiction of ecclesiastical authority for more than 150 years. Michael is a graduate of Christendom College, Virginia, which was founded by at least 2 CIA Agents. — All Catholic Media in the USA have been pushing “Bergoglio is the pope, and that alone is not negotiable” “Catholicism” since Feb. 11, 2013 A. D., because — in my opinion — they are directly or indirectly controlled by agents of the Doctrinal Warfare Program of the US Government, which installed Bergoglio in power and are employing every means of moral and psychological force to defend his claim to the throne of St. Peter.
The above general thesis advanced by Morrison is an outrage, in itself, for obvious reasons.
Moreover, his article contains the absurd manner of argumentation of citing a text, denouncing it as an error, attributing the malice of aforethought to Pope Benedict XVI, that the writer presumes one must have to say the things quoted. It is thus, unfounded, irrational, presumptuous, uncharitable, in addition to advancing a similar thesis to that of the Donatists, that if a Pope be a sinner, then he has no legitimate claim to the Papacy, especially if another worse sinner has seized it from him. Such is the moral theology of the rebel and the mafioso. Which must be utterly repudiated by all true Catholics for its moral depravity and unconscionableness.
But from a point of politics or psychology, it is also sociopathic, to defend the worse of two rivals and blame the better of the two. That is ultimately self-defeating of one’s own credibility and bizarrely masochistic.
Andrea Cionci, renowned investigator of the words of Pope Benedict XVI, author of the book, The Ratzinger Code (an encylopedic analysis of what Benedict XVI has been saying for 9 years, that he is the one and only pope), commented on this article, apparently in his recent tweet:
English translation of this sarcastic mockery:
Now that I think of it, the theory of the “private teacher” is good to justify the doctrinal abberrations of Bergoglio, but not good for the “modernist Ratzinger” in 1954. Ridiculous.
There are those in the Church who will excuse Bergoglio of every heresy, or charge, claiming he is not speaking authoritatively, so that they can continue to say, “Pope Francis”, but for Pope Benedict XVI, there is no such thing not even for anything he did say when NOT the pope, back in 1954. — This is ridiculous!
Need I say more? Shame on you Mr. Michael Matt. Shame on you Mr. Morrison.
