Related to this attempt to undermine the Faith is his call for us to "obey the United Nations". The Gloria article outlines nicely how antithetical to Jesus's teachings this is. See the video below and go to the 27:27 mark for the exact quote from the pope's Sept 10th plane conference.
On Friday I posted the call to prayer and fasting that was issued by Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider. They also issued a document listing several areas in which the direction of the synod would lead the Church to massive theological departures from Sacred Tradition, maybe departures so severe that they would lead to schism. I believe the pope realizes that too. That is why I believe he went into preemptive damage control - to shift blame on us who would simply be pointing out the havoc that he is wreaking.
The pope himself seems unafraid of schism. That is what he claims, and I believe that he is being quite frank. Archbishop Vigano gave an interview last month in which he stated that next month's synod could be the culmination of a centuries-old plan by Freemasons to desconstruct the Church and to bring on a "new church".
Zenit has published the transcript of the Sept 10th interview. Here it is.
Recall Matt's words that the possible schism. If the Amazon sin-nod doesn't do that, this May 14, 2020 gabfest just might well do it.
Just to reiterate the progressives' desire for a "new church", let me call from your long-suppressed nightmares the farce from 10 years ago from Call to Action..
