|Eugenio Scalfari and Pope Francis|
(Rome) The "interviews" by atheist and Freemason Eugenio Scalfari with Pope Francis have become as famous as infamous. On the 15th of March it was time again. Eugenio Scalfari has published in his house journal La Repubblica, an editorial about Pope Francis. He's cited actual or alleged statements which Pope Francis is said to have expressed in one of the conversations between the Catholic Church and head of the left, anti-clerical opinion makers. Scalfari would not be Scalfari, if he did not present himself in his editorial as the main interpreter of the Argentine Pope's thoughts and actions. This is only one page. The others are homework assignments that Scalfari is giving the Pope on the way. Tasks that the Pope would have to do in the atheist's terms. A new Bergogliata or new Scalfariada?
Scalfaris parallel magisterium with increased destructive power
The duo Scalfari-Bergoglio has appeared again on March 15 in the daily newspaper La Repubblica. Whether virtual or real, who knows? It means it is difficult to distinguish which are reported as a direct playback of quotes being in fact from Pope Francis and which are from Scalfari in the role of a more or less accepted papal prompter. Above all this says nothing about the broad impact. It is at Scalfari's disposal and it's international. If he ascribes to the Pope something, many readers will take it unquestioningly at face value. All the more so, the more clearly they are close to Scalfari's positions.Yet it also plays hardly any role to point out that such private opinions expressed are not from the Pope of the papal Magisterium when the "unofficial" teachings are much more widespread than the official one.
The fact is that Scalfari's Bergogliades promote a parallel magisterium, the ever deepening furrows in the sensus fideieats of the faithful. The following excerpts from the editorial require no comment. They are of a certain caliber, aimed at the Catholic doctrine and ecclesiastical discipline, whose destructive power has reached a new level.
If the allegations are put to the Pope in his mouth, not be immediately and unambiguously denied and corrected, by the Pope, or by those who are engaged to the Holy See, they will cast an even darker shadow on the Argentine Pope and pontificate. It is a Pope, for the masses who are so prone to idolatry, who is becoming more and more a stumbling block and irritation for believers.
"That which Francis Can Tell the Europe of Non-believers"
[...] Whoever has had the grace to meet Pope Francis knows that the egoism of the most dangerous enemy of our species. The animal is selfish because it is only guided by his instincts, the most important thing is their own survival. Man is also driven by socializing and he therefore feels love towards the other, in addition to the survival of the species to which he belongs. If egoism wins the upper hand and the love for others is suffocated, it darkens the divine spark which is in him and condemns himself.
What happens to these extinct souls? Will they be punished? And how?
Francis' answer is unambiguous and clear: There is no penalty but the annihilation of that soul. All others live on to share the the happiness in the presence of the Father. The extinguished souls have no part in this feast, with the death of the body is its end and this is the motivation of the missionary Church: to save the lost. This is also the reason why Francis is through and through, a Jesuit. [...] "
Francis: "There is no penalty. The souls are extinguished "
This "extinction" of souls poses "a big problem," said Chiesa e postconcilio . "With the death of the body ends earthly existence, but immortality continues to participate in the glory of God (paradise) or eternal damnation as a result of rejection and rebellion against the Creator and Lord, universorum Rex.
What more do you expect from Pope of Mercy, who has banished justice and the sacrifice of Christ? Of which he does not speak and do not even celebrate? What else does that "there is no going back" than its permanent reform?" asked the Roman Catholic blog.
"In any case, there are serious allegations that, even be they distorted, will be publicly attributed to the Pope. For this reason it would be to deny a unique way to denounce it and that with maximum visibility. Just as serious appears the inertia of that part of the clergy, which does not follow him without hesitation, as they have not done with any other pope in the past 50 years, but to actively wait for a solemn act of the Magisterium, that will never come. In the meantime, the confusion increases and with it, gives "darkness" free reign, because certain Church leaders break down the Church equity entrusted to defend the mystical body. This is absolutely serious and really dramatic. It is useless to wait for formal acts of government. The dissolution has become a part of the practice and the words of permission," said Chiesa e postconcilio .
Scalfari's "Homework" for the Pope I: abolish the Priesthood
The actual or alleged statements by Pope Francis are remarkable. You also remember the refusal of Francis to correct statements made once before, let alone such as Scalfaris. Instead, the previous interviews, although Scalfari was revealed to have formulated the answers of the Pope himself, have however kept faithful in content to the Pope's statements, which the Vatican publishing company published in book form.
Also noteworthy is Scalfari's addition with which he publicly issued the Pope homework. As tasks "Francis needs to address now," said Eugenio Scalfari, "very difficult problems, which have rarely been addressed." The first problem the atheist described, "that nobody has asked, even though it is obvious", implying something fundamental: "the presbyters, that is, the priests, who administer the sacraments and have the power to absolve or punish those who are judged to be sinners." Scalfari then claims that priests and a priestly hierarchy "is the only one prohibited marriage, in the Catholic Church."
Scalfari continues: "In no other religion are there priests called to celibacy and no other religion's doctrine was converted into a codex. The Jews have their writings and their rules, but the rabbis are teachers, they have neither a sacrament nor celibacy obligations. They represent and interpret the Scriptures. That's their job, nothing more.
The Muslims have their writings and their teachings, but no trace of priests. But beware: the different Muslim sects have teachers who interpret the Koran, but also oppressive laws, because they have named the infidel an enemy. Potentially, these are theocracies, sometimes direct, as in Iran, sometimes indirect, so that the temptation of fundamentalism is strong and often destructive. And not otherwise, although they are Christians, in the various Protestant denominations, where there is no priest, but pastors. [...] "
Scalfari's "Homework" for the Pope II: abolish the personal God
The second point Scalfari asks is for "contact to modern culture, which has its roots in the Enlightenment. This intellectual movement that had its greatest development in England and France in the 18th century and in Diderot, Voltaire, Hume, and Kant found its highest representatives, did not believe in absolute truth, but a relative, which excluded the existence of God or saw him as a motor of the creation of life, who is the means of an autonomous evolution and determined by autonomous laws.
The God of theists did not have any attribute that is similar to the Christian God: he was neither merciful nor vindictive, neither generous nor did he intervene in history and destiny, he did not interpose in the question of good and evil. He was a motor, a cosmic force that had kindled the light of life in some places of the universe and then withdrew, is asleep or busy with the creation of another life.
If an atheist Masonic coincides with the Pope - which in any case he claims
"Europe has the Enlightenment as the basis of the modern age. The theme of the Second Vatican Council, that Pope Francis has close to his heart, is that, to understand its wavelength, which can be spoken of with a Europe that is becoming de-Christianized and therefore the mission area (Including North America). It is very likely that the Holy Year desired by Francis will be the beginning of this missionary action, with all its implications, terribly current storm of terrorism, wars and local conflicts, increasing violence, family breakdown and desperate children and the worst of all sins, overlooking inequality, poverty, the supremacy of power and war instead of love and peace. The theme of mercy is therefore not only religious, but also socially and economically appropriate in order to regain the peace, love and hope in the face of power, war and despair. "
