Debate Over. Amoris Laetitia Is Heresy

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.


  1. Indeed, the Dubia has been answered. As you say, not the way we wish it to be, but it is what it is. The Pope cannot come out and answer the Dubia formally as a matter of 'clarifying' doctrine, because he would be accused and guilty of formal heresy. He did it by answering the Argentine Bishops and making that part of his 'magisterium'. Which is heresy, through the back door. No question, and NO CONFUSION any longer. I'm getting impatient with the prelates that are still labeling this crisis as 'CONFUSION' in the Church. There is nothing any longer that is 'confusing' about A.L. It's heresy plain and simple, and it contradicts the teaching of the Church.

  2. J.M.J.

    When will bishops publicly entertain the possibility that Bergoglio is not Pope,
    but rather that Benedict XVI has been all along? That acknowledgement would go far in clearing the confusion.
