Conservative opposition to Pope Francis spurs talk of a schism

Conservative opposition to Pope Francis spurs talk of a schism

Of all the recent attacks launched by conservatives against Pope Francis, one stood out more than most.

It came from a German cardinal who is one of the most powerful men in the Vatican. And it underlined a growing backlash in the church to some of Francis’ more progressive ideas — a backlash led largely by German and American bishops who fear the pope may be overturning centuries of doctrine on divorce, among other matters.

The cardinal, Gerhard Mueller, the pope’s own doctrinal chief, made it clear in an interview in February that he firmly opposed Francis’ tinkering with the church’s ban on divorced and civilly remarried Catholics taking Communion.

Texas House Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood and Send $20 Million to Pregnancy Centers

Micaiah Bilger Apr 7, 2017

The Texas House passed a two-year budget Thursday that would cut off funding to abortion groups and increase support for pregnant and parenting families.

The budget passed in a 131-16 vote, with the two pro-life amendments, and now moves to the state Senate for consideration, according to the Texas Tribune.

Texas lawmakers and pro-life advocates have been working for years to stop taxpayer funding from flowing to abortion groups like Planned Parenthood. The legislature voted in 2015 to prohibit Medicaid funding to abortion groups; however, the measure currently is blocked by a court order.

SOS Chretien d’Orient Helps Persecuted Middle-East Faithful

Inspired by participation in France’s La Manif Pour Tous campaign, a group of young French Catholic friends have mobilized a network of 600 volunteers working in several countries.

VATICAN CITY — In 2013, a small group of young French Catholic friends took part in La Manif Pour Tous (March for All), a popular movement that led to millions marching for life and against same-sex “marriage” and adoption.

After the demonstrations ended, they wanted to do more: to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East, not only by giving them material aid, but also living and praying alongside them.

Bp. Fellay: There is no imminent recognition- Clarity Needed to Move Forward

Bp. Fellay: Clarity Needed to Move Forward

February 02, 2017
District of the USA

His Excellency explains that before the SSPX accepts a prelature, clarity from Rome is needed regarding errors of Vatican II.

On January 29, Bishop Bernard Fellay gave a 20 minute interview to TVLibertés. The Superior General’s answer on TV about the canonical structure of the Personal Prelature offered to the Society of St. Pius X was short:

We have told Rome, very clearly, that, just as Archbishop Lefebvre used to say in his day, we have a sine qua non condition: if this condition is not met, then we will not move. And this condition is for us to be able to remain as we are, to keep all the principles that have kept us alive, that have kept us Catholic.”

Horrible – gpmtrad goes of the deep end ?

Gmptrad; is it another case of I told you so, or a case, I have always wanted to be the one who told you, I told you so? – Either way, I hate to disappoint you again.

I think we have been through this several times here. Same old, “SSPX is going to sell out” – Please give us a break. If the SSPX wanted to sell out it would have done so long ago. If it wanted to sell out, what is it waiting for? Permission from Gmptrad and co?

Gmptrad – Once more, you seem make a mountain out of nothing. – It is clear that what Bp. Fellay has said needs to be understood in the context. What context, the context of the entire history of the SSPX and it’s struggle with the conciliar novelties.

Amoris Laetitia – Whose Side Are We on?

If you approve of bank robbery, you won’t be able to condemn the act of shoplifting candy bars from a convenience store. I mean, you won’t be able to do this if you are to be logically consistent. If you approve of a greater evil, you can’t logically condemn lesser evils of the same genus.

Likewise, if you approve of murder you cannot, if you wish to retain your reputation for logical consistency, condemn assault and battery.

Mexico: Immense pro Family Rally

Mexicans rally for the family

Since May 25, 2016, Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto has been working to generalize civil unions between homosexual persons by reforming the country’s constitution and presenting various bills to the legislature. Until now, even though Mexico City was the first city of Latin America to adopt this sort of legalization (civil unions in 2007, “homosexual marriage” in 2009), the majority of Mexican states (21 out of 31) had not adopted these laws against nature. The reform of the Civil Code and of Article 4 of the Mexican Constitution went to generalize the promotion of a whole series of immoral behaviours.
