Below what I now write is a video from the Remnant's Michael Matt, commenting on the Profession Of The Immutable Truths About Sacramental Marriage. When I first posted about this on January 2, only the three bishops from Kazakhstan, the authors, had signed it. Now the number of signers is seven, including one cardinal.
Matt points out that this statement is not one asking for "clarification", as was the dubia. Rather, this statement directly contradicts and rebukes the errors of Amoris Laetitia. Some ambiguity remains, though. Pope Francis is not merely erroneous in how he interpreted Amoris Laetitia, but the pope's more egregious error lies in how he wrote Amoris Laetitia. His interpretation is not erroneous; it's the document itself that is inherently heretical.
The dubia have been answered. They may not have been answered according to protocol, but let's be real. If the pope holds God's immutable truths in disdain (and he does!), why on earth would we think that he'd give a rat's ass about the protocols of the dubia? We have the answers; we have the clarity. It's just not a clear answer that we might wish, but it is what it is. The progressives who wrote Amoris Laetitia (that includes the pope!) will not stop with Communion for unrepentant adulterers. They seek to undermine Humanae Vitae and other cornerstones of Catholic moral teaching.
So what are we faithful Catholics going to do about it? As Matt says, we must resist. No one gets to sit quietly on the sidelines. We are all members of the Church Militant and we must pray and act like it.
