Many have heard that false traditionalists, desperate to pump life into the non-Catholic Vatican II sect (i.e. the Whore of Babylon), are making a big deal about the fact that a few ‘cardinals’ of the Vatican II sect, including the apostate Raymond Burke, recently questioned Antipope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia in a formal manner. It’s actually disgusting to see such bad-willed false traditionalists still place their hope in the Vatican II sect and people such as Burke. Apparently it doesn’t matter to them that Burke is a notorious heretic who accepts the New Mass and all the heresies of Vatican II, doesn’t condemn the adherents of false ecumenism, believes in salvation outside the Church, and much more. The aforementioned ‘cardinals’ have also indicated that if Antipope Francis doesn’t respond appropriately to their request for a clarification, they will issue a ‘formal correction’. Wow, they are such bastions of orthodoxy – not. Their little action has gotten pathetic and faithless adherents of the Vatican II sect all excited. In their bad will, the false traditionalists cling to false voices and false solutions while eschewing the true ones. They are desperate to find any reason to continue believing in the Whore of Babylon. Well, on December 19, The Catholic World Report published an interview with Raymond Burke. Burke was asked if he is accusing Francis of heresy. He emphatically denied it:
CWR: Some critics say you are implicitly accusing the Pope of heresy.
Cardinal Burke: No, that’s not what we have implied at all. We have simply asked him, as the Supreme Pastor of the Church, to clarify these five points that are confused; these five, very serious and fundamental points. We’re not accusing him of heresy, but just asking him to answer these questions for us as the Supreme Pastor of the Church. (Interview)
This proves, again, that Burke is a notorious heretic; for Francis is of course a notorious heretic and an apostate. The man says that Luther “was not mistaken” on Justification – among countless other professions of heresy! Amoris Laetitia itself contains notorious heresy, as our material documents. Burke was then asked again if he’s accusing Francis of heresy. He responded by stating that he’s never said Francis is even close to heresy!
CWR: Just to clarify again, are you saying that Pope Francis is in heresy or is close to it?
Cardinal Burke: No, I am not saying that Pope Francis is in heresy. I have never said that. Neither have I stated that he is close to being in heresy.
These responses from Burke confirm what we already knew: he is wicked, faithless, and pathetic. That’s why he is a ‘cardinal’ in the Vatican II sect under Antipope Francis. Sadly, however, the adjectives wicked, faithless, and pathetic apply to all who obstinately place their hope in the pro-Vatican II apostates under Antipope Francis. If they’ve seen the evidence against Antipope Francis (such as what we’ve published about him), and they still accept him as the pope and place their hope in heretics such as Burke, they are people God abominates. They have no faith, and they value externals only. They think that the Catholic Church is a building, and that whoever happens to be in it and dressed in the appropriate robes (such as Burke), no matter what that person professes, is ‘with the Church’. The truth, however, is that the Catholic Church is comprised of the people who actually believe and profess the true Catholic faith, not heretics who occupy buildings that belonged to the Church. False traditionalists who place their hope in non-Catholics such as Burke don’t have any idea who or what constitutes the Catholic Church.
Burke accepts all the heresies of Vatican II; he accepts Antipope John Paul II as a ‘saint’; he denies the dogma Outside The Church There Is No Salvation; and much more. He’s not remotely Catholic. He’s an apostate. None of the ‘bishops’ and ‘cardinals’ who adhere to the Vatican II sect and the New Mass are Catholic. If they were orthodox even on the matter of who may lawfully receive Communion, they would condemn Vatican II, the New Code of Canon Law, and the New Catechism for teaching that Protestants and Eastern schismatics may receive Holy Communion! In fact, false traditionalists who are outraged over Amoris Laetitia, yet ignore worse things in Antipope John Paul II’s New Catechism, value externals over substance. It offends their sense of external ‘piety’ to think that public adulterers may approach the ‘Communion’ rail right next to them; but they don’t care about the substance of the truth involved. If they did, then they would be just as outraged by Vatican II’s official teaching that heretics may receive Communion. As stated above, God abominates such people.
Despite the fact that he’s a pathetic apostate who gives false hope to members of the end-times Counter Church, Burke did say something true in his interview. He was asked what would happen if a pope “formally professed heresy”. He responded by correctly stating that the person would automatically cease to be the pope. This contradicts the false traditionalists who wrongly (and heretically) teach that a pope would need to be judged and declared guilty of heresy before he would cease to be the pope. (The Vatican II antipopes were of course not validly elected. Therefore they never held the papal office.)
CWR: Some people are saying that the pope could separate himself from communion with the Church. Can the pope legitimately be declared in schism or heresy?
Cardinal Burke: If a Pope would formally profess heresy he would cease, by that act, to be the Pope. It’s automatic. And so, that could happen.
CWR: That could happen.
Cardinal Burke: Yes.
CWR: That’s a scary thought.
Cardinal Burke: It is a scary thought, and I hope we won’t be witnessing that at any time soon.
Obviously, the unbeliever Burke doesn’t consider Antipope Francis’ agreement with Luther on Justification, not to mention his countless other notorious heresies, to constitute “formally professing heresy”. That’s because, just like Antipope Francis, Burke is an apostate.
