Pope Francis: If You’re Right, Then Close The Church, Sell It Off And Go Home

Let's Play Stump The Pope

Let’s Play Stump The Pope

Thus spake Francis:

Later, in the church, he met with a group of children and young people, and answered their questions. The first was: if God forgives everything, why does Hell exist? The Pope replied that Hell is the desire to distance oneself from God and to reject God’s love. But”, he added, “if you were a terrible sinner, who had committed all the sins in the world, all of them, condemned to death, and even when you are there, you were to blaspheme, insults… and at the moment of death, when you were about to die, you were to look to Heaven and say, ‘Lord …!’, where do you go, to Heaven or to Hell? To Heaven! Only those who say, I have no need of You, I can get along by myself, as the devil did, are in Hell – and he is the only one we are certain is there”.

Why does the Church exist then?  Why do we need a pope, a bishop, a priest?  Why do we need a catechism?  Why do we need the sacraments?  In one “profound” statement, Pope Francis obliterates the necessity of the Church.

Sell the buildings, set the art, burn the books, trash the Vatican Library and sell off what can be sold, blow out the last candle, and go home.  We don’t need any of it.

This is what the pope says to children.  This is his explanation of 2,000 years of the Church, the Magisterium, the Faith.  This is what he believes and he cares not a wit about dragging souls into the Hell that no one goes to.

“Go to confession, son.”

“No, I don’t need to because Pope Francis told me that I just have to look up to Heaven as I am dying and say ‘Lord’.”

“Go to Mass, daughter.”

“No, I don’t need to do that because I’m going to Heaven by just saying ‘Lord’, Pope Francis told me.”

“Have the child baptized.”

“No, the child doesn’t need that because Pope Francis said he just needs to look up to Heaven when he’s dying and say ‘Lord’.”

“Say your prayers.”

“No I don’t need to do that.  Pope Francis says God loves me and all I have to do is look up to Heaven and say ‘Lord’ and I’m in.”

What is the point of Lent, Francis?  What’s the point of anything, Francis?

Now, that’s the True religion and Faith in the era of Pope Francis.  This is what the pope teaches.  No doubt people will be falling over themselves to reinterpret this; he didn’t mean that.  He does mean it.  This is heresy.  We have now confirmation that the pope is a heretic as well as a blithering idiot.  If we listen to this and act on this then we too are heretics and blithering idiots.

Keep your children away from him.  Do not let him teach or touch your children.  If he comes to your house, do not let him in; point out the closest Ethical Humanist Society assembly and direct him there.  If he calls you, do not be polite.  Hang up before the miasma overtakes your mind too.  When someone tells you how wonderful Pope Francis is, quote this back to them.  If they agree, then shake the dust off your feet and leave.

[13] Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. [14] How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! [15] Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

[16] By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?[17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.[18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. [19]Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.[20] Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.

[21] Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. [22]Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. [24] Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock, [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.

[26] And every one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that built his house upon the sand, [27] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof. [28] And it came to pass when Jesus had fully ended these words, the people were in admiration at his doctrine. [29] For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes and Pharisees.

Dear Pope Francis, please, now, get in your Ford Focus and do us all a favor and drive yourself off a cliff or back whence you came.  You will find out how many are in Hell when you get there.

  1. The Cure of Ars told a widow, unasked, that her husband had not gone to Hell. He had committed suicide by leaping off a bridge, but in the minutes before he died he had repented. Francis is correct that one can repent at the last minute–look at the Good Thief.
    But Francis focuses on the exception and fails to instruct the children that the better way is to love Jesus now and as they grow up. As you point out, Francis ignores Christ’s own warnings about Hell, and provides his listeners with “sifting sand” to stand on, rather than “a rock.”

    In contrast, Christian pro-life singer and saline abortion survivor Gianna Jessen told a Congressional subcommittee in 2000: “There was once a man speaking from hell (recorded in Luke 16) who said “I am tormented in this flame.” Hell is real. So is Satan, and the same hatred that crucified Jesus 2000 years ago, still resides in the hearts of sinful people today. Why do you think this whole room trembles when I mention the name Jesus Christ? It is because He is REAL!”

    Pope Francis: “Only those who say, I have no need of You, I can get along by myself, as the devil did, are in Hell – and he is the only one we are certain is there”. (address, Mar. 9th, 2015, Santa Maria del Redentore Church, Rome)

    This is an obvious error, which also identifies much about the Bergoglio thinking: that “[…The devil) is the only one we are certain is there [in hell].”

    Our Lord’s Last Discourse states otherwise (John 17): At least one other person our Lord himself states is in hell. In regards to Judas, He says, “Not one of them was lost, except the one who was destined to be lost.” (John 17:12) So, at least Judas Iscariot is in hell, also, besides the devil.

    Of course, everyone probably also thinks of Mt. 7:12, where Jesus is speaking to the apostles about the road to being lost—can we safely say?—in hell: “Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.” Our Lord’s entire discourse in Ch. 5-7, the Sermon on the Mount, is about the Kingdom of God. Should one not be worried about being excluded by one’s own choices?

    Or: Hmm, PF: Shouldn’t you, as Supreme Teacher of the Faith, warn that many may go to their spiritual death? Well, maybe not: if Mt. 19 (Jesus’ teaching on marriage) can be changed into something else, then one also has to deaden the conscience about Mt. 7:12.

    Reblogged this on EX MAGNA SILENTIUM or EX MAGNO SILENTIO and commented:

    Since I wrote this yesterday, I have been bothered by a couple of things that I wrote. I should not have called the pope an outright heretic. He may be spouting heresy, but I should have given him the benefit of the doubt that, in being himself, he was just trying to be “nice” to the children. I also should not have said that people should not bring their children near him or let them touch him. Perhaps, the simplicity of a child of truly orthodox and loving parents are what he needs around and with him. He is not evil and I said as much with my harsh words. I should not have called him a blithering idiot. He’s not an idiot, although he is not a clear thinker or a good speaker off-the-cuff. I also should not have recommended that he drive off a cliff.

    I apologize to Pope Francis for my angry words, and to everyone who read them.

    Sometimes, I say stupid things, particularly in the heat of the moment. I reacted too quickly to what he said to these children and should not have lashed out as I did but instead allowed myself to cool down and give some time to mull my writing. I still think that his comment leads to the conclusion that we don’t need the Church or Her ministers or religion, so I don’t take that back.

    Pope Francis is our pope, whether we agree with him or not, whether we are outraged by what he trots out there as Catholicism or not, and whether we think he is contributing to harm to the Church or not. We can criticize what he says and does, and we should when we see that he harms the Faith or the Church. I just went too far in my hasty anger in this post.


    • Steve, why not revise the post now that you’ve calmed down? You could just note that this is the revised or final form of the post.


      • steveesq says:

        That was my first idea. After prayer, I had the thought that a reblog might be a better way since many people had already read what I wrote and I hoped that the reblog would give them a second look where they could read my apology. Thanks for caring!

    Shake it off!

    I try not to write in the heat of the moment.

    If I fell I have to get something out, I put it up For The Record.

    As to whether Francis is evil, I would say that Francis is not evil, but simply because no Council has pronounced him as such. 🙂
