Flashback - Taylor Marshall: "If... Vigano is Right... Francis has Lost the Papacy"

Dr. Taylor Marshall on his YouTube show explained why after Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano said that the Francis Abu Dhabi statement is "blatant heresy" that it is possible "Francis has lost the papacy":

"[Vigano said] this [the Abu Dhabi statement] is a blatant heresy... Let's pause there. This gets into St. Robert Bellarmine where he says a manifest heretic immediately and de facto loses the papacy. So, if Bellarmine is right and Vigano is right that means that Francis has lost the papacy... then Bellarmine would also say there is a general council that then declares the deposition that the pope has fallen for manifest heresy."
(Dr. Taylor Marshall YouTube Show, "Archbishop Vigano calls on Pope and Bishops to Repent Amidst Corona Crisis," April 1, 2020, 16:16-16:58)

However, theologian Cardinal Raymond Burke disagreed with the YouTube podcaster Marshall's claim that a "general council" is needed when the Catholic World Report (CWR) asked him:

"CWR: Who is competent to declare him to be in heresy?"

"Cardinal Burke: It would have to be members of the College of Cardinals."
(Catholic World Report, "Cardinal Burke : 'No, I am not saying that Pope Francis is in Heresy." December 19, 2016)

Note that Burke said "members of the College of Cardinals," not the whole College of Cardinals many of whom may
be presumed to be heretics. That sounds like a imperfect council not a "general council."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

If I witness a stranger open the gate to my corral and ride off on my horse I am qualified to judge him to be a horse thief.

That doesn’t mean I have the right to hang him from a tree branch.

But I do have the right and duty to apprehend him so those who can judge, will.

Those who can judge a crime, must judge the crime, or they are derelict and participants in the crime.

Burke is wrong in saying that the Cardinals alone can judge him. That duty falls to the College of Bishops, who alone, are successors of the Apostles and hold the office of the magisterium.

The Cardinals hold no office of magisterium. They can only rebuke and warn and judge themselves as to whether they erred in following the papal law on elections. And since they are all creatures of careerism or of Bergoglio, I think it is pretty clear that, without a forza maggiore, they won't do anything.

As for the Bishops, a council is not strictly necessary. When Bishop Gracida approved the judgement of Archbishop Lenga, that Bergoglio is a heretic and has never been the pope, that was a collegial act already.

Isn't this a big nothing burger anyway? As Ann has been saying for almost 4 years...."we gotta get this right". Do simply get rid of Bergoglio, have another faux conclave solves nothing and is actually more dangerous. Pope Benedict IS the Pope.
Alexis Bugnolo said…
Complements to Taylor for beginning to open his eyes after Archbishop Lenga and Gracida made their declarations that Bergoglio never was the pope and is a heretic.

Anyone who has the audacity to suggest that Cardinal Burke is wrong on matters of Church law is as asinine as they come. Thank goodness Christ is in charge of His Church and not any of you.

Judie Brown,

Thank you for avoiding using ad hominems in your argument and acting like an adult.

Not sure how wrong Cardinal Burke is “on Church Law”. I know for a fact he, along with three other Cardinals, asked the “Pope” five simple core Dogmatic questions in Dubia form, which, since asked by Cardinals of the Church, *demanded* answers on behalf of our Catholic Faith In the Name of Christ.

These Dubia *demanded answers*, Judie Brown.

Non-answer is, by definition, a negative (incorrect; heretical) answer.

By not insisting on getting clear answers from our titular Pope, and then allowing incorrect non-answers to prevail and infiltrate our Faith, Cardinal Burke made a serious problem *infinitely worse* by solidifying these fundamental Dogmatic errors into the fabric of the Faith on pain of disobedience to the “Pope”.

In other words, he participates in the infiltration of error by asking ... and then not following through .... on behalf of Dogmatic Truth. These errors have all grown and continue to grow (metastasize).

I consider that to be one of the gravest sins in the history of the Church: not answering the Dubia; not insisting on answers to the a Dubia.

And if we do not call out this error to our Superiors, we participate in their sin.
Judie Brown said…
Aqua, you do have a point and in my view given the overwhelming odds against them, the signers of the dubia who are still alive and involved have done all they can to press the matter. Do not forget that nobody can tell the Pope what to do and the urging, pleading and begging only goes so far. This is not Cardinal Burke's fault but rather a symptom of the depth of arrogance that exists with the Vatican's top tier of management beginning with the Pope.

Of course the errors will grow if left unchecked just like a tumor. But to suggest that anyone has not done enough to "call out this error" is a pejorative statement on your part. What we need to do and should be doing is praying for Cardinal Burke, Pope Francis and others to use this time of Lent as we approach Holy Week to be open to the Lord.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Judie

I was under the impression that the Dubia were directed towards an antipope, not the Pope., & that is why they never received a response. This apostate must be urgently declared a pertinacious heretic, idolater & denier of the Deity of Christ & removed from the PO by those that voted him to that position without verifying that the See was in fact empty, along with all his self-conferred titles in the Vatican Yearbook 2020 & Pope Benedict XVI restored to his rightful place on the Throne of Peter, this time hopefully to remain at least long enough to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary & reveal the Third Secret of Fatima in full. He would also do well to cast out all the apostate's appointees & mandate TLM to be taught & celebrated worldwide as he should have done already.

John,

Whether you can see it or not, it is not true without documented proof or eye witness testimonies. That is the big hole in your theory.

Judie,
The abandoned sheep are not casting stones. The abandoned sheep is casting questions. Begging questions. Begging for bread which is not given to them, from their own shepherds.
What right now literally happens! But they are casting stones to their sheep in the form of meaningless and above all hopeless rhetorical words and speeches.

The whole world is rotten becausevof silence. Their silence!
So then if those will not speakvwho should and must speak because the righ WORDS are given to them as it is their duty to speak, then somebody else must to speak.
Otherwise, the stones will begone to speak. (Which btw., abandoned sheep is not casting to them.)

@ Judie Brown, Cardinal Burke, especially in reference to his status as former Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura (Supreme Court Chief Justice) has a duty to Holy Mother Church to ask the questions (Dubia - he did) AND to insist on answers - *correct answers* (he did not).

By not insisting on the latter he admitted error, especially in reference to his prior status as Prefect (etc), into the bloodstream of Holy Mother Church.

This we see around us now. Pachamama demon idols in and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass out. Darkness.

Those Dubia could have formed the basis for questioning his invalid election - how can any “Pope” hold such heretical views? Instead: Cardinal Burke has cemented Bergoglio’s status as (Anti) Pope and his heresy as De Fide. And vast numbers of Catholics are thus deceived and led to hell by this false faith ..... which should have been *confronted* at the beginning. Instead - accepted, approved.

So, it looks like we can pick which idol we like best--on the left, Pachamama, more powerful (and more peeved) than the Almighty Himself; and on the right, Cardinal Burke, imbued by Judie Brown with an infallibility Vatican I wouldn't have dreamt of ascribing even to the most authentic of popes.

Sorry, I'll pass.

If the Judie Brown commenting here is THE Judie Brown of ALL, it would go a long way towards explaining why the mainstream pro-life movement has been its own worst enemy for the last several decades or so. You don't have to go to all the trouble of losing, as long as you are willing to surrender up front.

So "no one can tell the Pope what to do," is that it? Do you even believe in God? God can tell the Pope what to do and has, through the divine, natural, and Canon laws by which He guides His Church and which Bergoglio flaunts more blatantly every day. Not you, not me, and not even the more-than-infallible Cardinal Burke has any right to obey Bergoglio instead of God, even on the off chance that Bergoglio does happen to be the Pope.

JB,check Galatians 2:11 on this point, if it has never occurred to you before.

Or would you have to ask Cardinal Burke to read it to you himself and then explain it using nice, very small words?

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin
