Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome (0)
RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome
Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.
Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:View items...

Our long-time friends from church, were driving to the hospital early this morning [4/17/2015] with their seven children, in anticipation of welcoming an eighth child into their beautiful family. On the way, an oncoming car hit a deer which was thrown into the Rogans' vehicle. Mike did not survive the accident. Niki and the children survived with only minor injuries. Niki gave birth to their son, Blaise, hours after the accident.

"Now we have a Pope Francesco in the flesh, and elements of Murphy’s vision have come to pass, or so it seems: the attention-grabbing breaks with papal protocol, the interventions in global politics, the reopening of moral issues that his predecessors had deemed settled, and the blend of public humility and skillful exploitation—including the cashiering of opponents—of the papal office and its powers.
The Church is not yet in the grip of a revolution. The limits, theological and practical, on papal power are still present, and the man who was Jorge Bergoglio has not done anything that explicitly puts them to the test. But his moves and choices (and the media coverage thereof) have generated a revolutionary atmosphere around Catholicism. For the moment, at least, there is a sense that a new springtime has arrived for the Church’s progressives. And among some conservative Catholics, there is a feeling of uncertainty absent since the often-chaotic aftermath of the Second Vatican Council, in the 1960s and ’70s.
"... the conservatives’ very theology makes it impossible for them to effectively resist a liberalizing pope, and anyway they have no other place to go." FULL ARTICLE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: First of all, what do you think: Springtime, or Winter going forward under Pope Francis? And secondly, if things go from bad to worse will the neo-Catholics finally take a stand?
Will Francis Break the Catholic Church?By: Michael J. Matt | Editor
REMNANT COMMENT: I wonder which neo-barbarian hordes are going to crush America first. Well played, by the way, liberal elites! You and your militant secularism are transforming the U.S. Military into a place fit for murderers, rapists and criminals. Support the troops? Really?

Today at the Catholic Herald we read: “LCWR leaders met Pope Francis today as the Vatican announced the conclusion of the process. The Vatican has ended a seven-year investigation into the US Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).LCWR leaders met Pope Francis today as the Vatican announced the conclusion of the process, which included oversight for three years by a committee of three bishops.

Editor’s Note: Remnant columnist, Elizabeth Yore, is an international child protection attorney who has investigated several cases of clergy sex abuse of children. She served as Special Counsel and Child Advocate to Oprah Winfrey. She is the former General Counsel of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and former General Counsel at National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She is quite obviously a well-qualified expert in the field of child abuse prevention, which is why her testimony in this case is so disturbingly apropos. MJM
They still don’t get it.
With great fanfare and media fawning, Pope Francis appointed Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley to head the new Vatican Child Protection Commission to protect children from clergy sex abuse. O’Malley said the new commission would advise the pope about the protection of children and the pastoral care of victims of abuse.

Sham “Schism” Exposed
"The neo-Catholic establishment really must cease its spiteful calumnies of the Society’s adherents, whose heroic perseverance in the traditions of the Faith will certainly be vindicated by history, as their neo-Catholic hecklers undoubtedly suspect."
I have long argued—here, for example—that the “lack of full communion” attributed to the Society of Saint Pius X, even though its clergy and laity are obviously Catholics under no sentence of excommunication, is nothing but an ad hoc contrivance designed to perpetuate the unjust persecution of this group of the faithful by creating a rather silly special category of “double secret probation” in the Church applicable only to them. I have also argued that the mere issuance of a technical decree regularizing the Society’s canonical status is all that is necessary to eliminate the illusory “lack of full communion.”

“Christianity is expected to grow, too, but not at Islam's explosive rate. The Pew study predicts Christians will increase from 2.17 billion to 2.92 billion, composing more than 31% of the world's population.
“This means that by 2050, more than 6 out of 10 people on Earth will be Christian or Muslim.” READ FULL REPORT HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Interesting! Lowly Islam—disorganized, warring tribes, without even a claimant to the position of visible head— giving its ancient nemesis, Christianity, a serious run for its money.
Isn’t it something how faith really can move mountains, even the false variety. But poor old beleaguered Christianity doesn’t stand a chance this time around. Thanks to the debilitating and faith-destroying Spirit of Vatican II, the Crescent looms high over the Cross.
What this report does not touch on, by the way, is the almighty power of raw secularism, which at the moment seems to be dominating the world and its “great monothesitic religions”. How did we end up with homosexual ‘marriage’, for example, in a world inhabited by practitioners of religions that oppose it in peril of their souls?
If you want something to fear in the future you needn’t look to religion but rather to that Ape of God, to irreligion, to the supreme deity worshipped by the practitioners of unholy militant Secularism (read: atheism). Now that’s the stuff of global nightmares!

Matt and Ferrara take the gloves off against neo-Catholics who would throw Genesis under the bus as mere myth and embrace evolution as fact. Why are we carrying water for atheists? Enough already!
SPECIAL REPORT: Evolution: The Creation Narrative of Atheists FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
The essay you see before you is not intended to function as a reasoned argument, nor is it an explanation of some new idea. It is meant to act as a sort of “word study,” examining the appearance, usage, and development of the notion of liberalism as found in Catholic Social Teaching. I’ve attempted to keep my commentary to a minimum, only interjecting in order to provide context and “connect the dots.”
I happen to consider liberalism to be the fundamental error of the modern world. I believe that there exists, particularly in America a definite allegiance to this error. Moreover, this allegiance is bi-partisan: it is present regardless of party affiliation. I have argued that many of our problems, if not directly caused by the liberal mentality, are at least exacerbated by it. I’ve even gone so far as to suggest that liberalism actually fosters ignorance and guarantees social dysfunction.
