Commentary and Critique by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
As can be seen from the Twitter intro and what John Henry Westen says from the start of this video interview, Westen is extremely forceful on one point: that everyone accept as valid and legitimate the unjust act of Pope Francis, who without a doubt is the Pope.
Westen is a recruit of the Gladio Network in Spain where he got his start from an organization which works closely with the CIA, as has been reported before back in 2021. Since the forced resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, he has ever insisted that we accept as valid the invalid election of March 2013 of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He has always also insisted that we accept his unjust acts.
This doctrine of Westen is clearly not a catholic one. It is rather the Masonic one. Because no where in Scripture nor in Canon Law are we taught or asked to accept unjust acts as valid in law. The whole notion of such an absurdity is tantamount to saying that error has rights, or that an evil God must be obeyed.
That is not the Catholic Faith. but that is the faith of a cult which worships Satan.
Framing the entire interview under this error, Westen proceeds to interview Bishop Strickland and attempt to manipulate him into this position.
And while it seems that Bishop Strickland proposes a prayer-only solution, it is also increasingly clear as the interview goes on, that unlike Westen, Strickland wants the world to understand that there is a war in the Church by a conspiracy of men who want to destroy Her and change the Gospel.
Missing in this interview is the word, “Church Militant” and the notion of the natural right of self defense.
No where in the Gospel or in the teaching of the Magisterium or the Saints has it ever been taught that the Church on Earth should merely pray and suffer. No where has it ever been taught that pacifism is the perfection of spirituality.
If the Church is to recover from this Crisis as Bishop Strickland affirms, someone in the Church is going to have to fight for the truth and recognize that some human persons in the Church are its Enemies and need to be removed from power, by every legitimate and or lawful means.
That is what the Sutri Initiative is all about. And if you watch this video, you will be assured that the notion of simply praying as is presented here means that others must do the fighting. Just as at Lepanto, the whole Catholic World prayed the Rosary, while the Catholic Marines carried the battle to victory with blood, sweat and much self sacrifice.
I would ask the readers of FromRome.Info to share such truths in comments on the above video wherever it be found. Westen wants a Church Passive instead of a Church Militant. That is not Catholic. And we should not let him get away with the obvious manipulation he has attempted in this video.
