MUST CATHOLICS OBEY FRANCIS? Discerning True and False Obedience in the Era of Traditionis Custodes

At the Catholic Identity Conference 2021, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski dropped a bombshell on the pious but wrongheaded belief that Catholics owe blind obedience to the pope, even when his commands are evil or unjust.


Protestants will also find this magnificent talk of interest, since it inadvertently puts to rest some of the anti-Catholic caricatures invented during the Protestant Revolt, e.g.., that Catholics worship statues, that Catholics think Mary must be worshipped as a goddess, and that Catholics believe popes cannot sin and could never go to hell. Not true, not true and definitely NOT TRUE!

Prepare to have the blindfold removed.


Order the entire Catholic Identity Conference series of talks, emceed by Michael J. Matt. Makes a great Christmas gift, too:
