FLASHBACK: Pope Joked About Using Ambiguity to Get His Way on Communion for Divorced/Remarried

"And then he said: 'By the time they get wise to the whole mercy schtick, we'll be on a beach earning twenty percent.'"    

For reasons I don't completely understand, this news item appears to have been largely forgotten. But I believe it is even more important and relevant now than when I first published it on May 7, 2016. The Pope and his ghostwriters designed Amoris Laetitia to be ambiguous. And this is of course why the Pope won't answer the dubia asking him to clarify it. Bergoglio believes that the only way to advance his revolution is through deceit. But oddly, as the article below reveals, his men are not bashful about admitting that.     

Archbishop Bruno Forte, the Pope's handpicked Secretary for the synods on the family, recently spoke at a public presentation on Amoris Laetitia. A transcript of his remarks was published by an Italian news website on May 3rd. In turn, an English translation was just posted on OnePeterFive.

Here's the stunner from the original article:
Archbishop Forte has in fact revealed a “behind the scenes” [moment] from the Synod: “If we speak explicitly about communion for the divorced and remarried,” said Archbishop Forte, reporting a joke of Pope Francis, “you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won’t speak plainly, do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions.”
Reporting a joke?

That Pope Francis has intentionally used ambiguous language to advance his agenda should not come as a surprise to those who have steadily followed his pontificate with open eyes. It's perhaps not even a surprise that Francis might talk about his method with his ideological allies. What is stunning is that such a close ally would feel perfectly unabashed about reporting the Pope's little "joke" in a public forum.

These people are now utterly brazen. They brag about manipulating Catholics as Mussolini laughed about firing up the masses during his balcony speeches. But even Mussolini (as far as I know) never publicly boasted about it.

I hope they enjoy their fun while they can. Hell isn't many years off for most of them.

  1. Forte's imprudence about Bergoglio's deceitful methods may indicate his quite deficient intelligence. He thinks it is funny because he is stupid. What is more stunning to me is the silence of the orthodox bishops and cardinals. By the time the 'official correction' is offered to Bergoglio about his refusal to acknowledge and respond to the Dubia, very much damage will have been done. How slow can these prelates be? Speak up! For Heaven's sake, speak up!!

  2. In line with Barbara Jensen's concern about the damage caused by silence we should also recognize what will happen when the truth is known. My guess is that many folks will leave the Church as they can't handle the truth. Whatever happens the Church will become much smaller. This ties in with Christ's wondering if there will be any faith left on earth when He comes again.

  3. This needed more response! (Thank you Barbara Jenson and Michael Dowd.) We are actually becoming numb to the horror that is Pope Francis and his team. But it is so important that you and other bloggers remind us of this, so that we remember that his agenda is planned. Thank you.
