FRANCIS TURNS 87: Catholic World Divided Over Worst Pope in History

New from Remnant TV...

In this edition of The Remnant Underground, Michael Matt wishes Francis a happy 87th birthday.

Francis is now the oldest reigning pope in 120 years, but some would ask: Is Francis pope, or antipope? Michael takes a deep dive into a new thesis, singed by by nine Italian Catholic intellectuals, which puts an end to that circular firing squad once and for all.


Meanwhile, Joe ‘The Catholic’ Biden goes to Mass, as Tony ‘The Catholic’ Fauci explains why a man of his elevated ethical standards doesn’t “need no stinkin’ religion!”

Plus, electric vehicles hit the wall of reality, as four hundred Ford dealers back out of the EV program. What does that say about The Great Reset?

Finally, a conversation between Michael Matt and Michael Matt Jr. about Christmas, family, and… John Wayne?
