OH, THE JOY OF LOVE AND OF HELL
Cardinal Burke applies his opinion of the previous apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (“personal not magisterial”) to Amoris Laetitia, but FrankenPope himself has said:
I wrote an encyclical [now two]—true enough, it [the first one] was by four hands [with Benedict XVI]—and an apostolic exhortation [also now two]. I’m constantly making statements, giving homilies. That’s magisterium [emphasis added].

Cardinal Burke is reemerging this evening [at “‘Amoris Laetitia’ and the Constant Teaching and Practice of the Church” in the National neo-Catholic Register (see comment below) and elsewhere (such as CDL. BURKE: KEY TO INTERPRETING ‘AMORIS LAETITIA’ IS IN LIGHT OF CHURCH DOGMA AND DISCIPLINE at ChurchMilitant) and ] in his entirely clear, very gentle yet commanding way. In another moment his statement might have hit the press like an exploding rocket. Today I expect it will quickly evaporate.
Burke says that Francis’ Exhortation, hailed worldwide as a NuChurch tolerance for all sorts of sexual sins, is personal not magisterial; requiring our ‘respect’ but not in any way our belief. In a very hermeneutic-of-continuity way, we are to ‘apply’ the perennial teaching and discipline of the Church to those 260 pages of effeminate blather, and that way derive the greatest “Joy of Love” benefits.
Just how we are supposed to respect the weapons of such a Lutherian obstacle to salvation I have no guess. Respecting the papal office just makes one respect Francis less.
Am I comforted by the beloved cardinal? A bit. Does it matter? Yes, because it means I’ll fall in line perhaps. If the brilliant and faithful Burke says all’s well, then I can go on enduring FrancisPapacy and wait…until what? Until everyone’s dead and in Hell? Who will they put up at the next conclave, the Holy Spirit Himself? How many years of collapse must the planet suffer? Perhaps they’ll make Abp. Victor Manuel Fernandez [or “Tucho” (for touchy-feely?), the supposed drafter of Amoris Laetitia and other Bergoglian documents] Pope in 2022.
Why do I feel like George W. just came out of retirement to placate the jumpy ones? Where is the Reagan among these Romneys and Obamas? When will there be a real Catholic regime again in Rome, not some pacifying placeholders handing us false hope?
John XXIII was a radical formerly put down for heterodoxy and full of destructive, arrogant, and liberal ideas. “The Church is not a museum?” Who said it was? I’m sure it was some non-Catholic who the ‘good pope’ had a great desire to please and impress. Paul VI is responsible for one of the most audacious and nefarious acts in the history of mankind, the suppression of the Ancient Mass on behalf of ‘the peoples.’
Why honor and tolerate awful popes? Why continue to gape at this disabled and dysfunctional Church, and wait in the desert for the rivers of life to flow once again while all around us is death?
After Paul, ‘the sad one,’ we had thirty years of holding pattern while we choked for oxygen and the world spiraled, then kaboom! The One, destined to come and save us from the Left’s BadMediaChurch, materialized with his healing powers. Bombs left and right now wreck the Church, but all the Catholic hierarchy can muster is paid-for FrancisHomage,’ some tiny bit of correction, and words. Francis doesn’t even pretend to be Catholic ever, but all we seem to do is yell at each other about it and cry out in shock.
In the past, the faithful knew that the Church can only wither with an enemy at the helm. It was a problem more than once.
In the economy of Christ’s grace how can we achieve anything with this level of ‘effort,’ begging proud sinners to overlook the laws of God while we feed them faith-crushing showtune Masses and lie to them about their souls?
In the end Jesus isn’t going to jump up and down about ‘doctrine’ either, like some rhetorical FrancisPharisee. He’s going to judge us for the poor souls we’ve lost enabling this satanic protracted program of stupid.
