Pope Benedict XVI signals His blessing for efforts to restore Him to the Apostolic Throne

Rome, Nov. 14, 2019 — In another massive blow to the Bergoglian regime, there was published today, a letter written by His Holiness Pope Benedict …

If that's BXVI's idea of a signal, we'll see Christ Himself sitting on the Apostolic Throne in Rome before we'll see Benedict.
Imagine yourself in the house of a Mafia don who kidnapped you, being interviewed by a journalist about why you are there, and then I think you will reconsider your words the next time you are tempted to say something so obviously lacking consideration of all the facts.

But the facts are none of those conditions apply to Benedict. o.O One thing's for certain, I know exactly who I'm going to hire to write the script for my next low-budget thriller. ;-)
If you do not realize that Bergoglio is the Don of the International Ecclesiastical Mafia you probably have not read but one or two articles at Gloria.TV of if you have, you do not understand what you read.

Your Fallacy Is: Bifurcation, aka "Black and White". There are other possibilities, the obvious one being you're wrong. Benedict retired and did so while he was still healthy. All the wishful thinking in the world isn't going to change that. Trying to misinterpret the words of an increasingly frail, dying man is beneath you. Truly, it is.

Your Fallacy Is: Bifurcation, aka "Black and White". There are other possibilities, the obvious one being you're wrong. Benedict retired and did so while he was still healthy. All the wishful thinking in the world isn't going to change that. Trying to misinterpret the words of an increasingly frail, dying man is beneath you. Truly, it is. I say that out of respect for your intelligence and admiration for your wit. Benedict isn't coming back and I don't think he even wants to. Breaks my heart saying it, but he's done. Did you see those latest photos of him? He's getting to that cadaverous state at the very end.

The Chruch is stuck with his successor.

To use a "mafia" parallel, think back to the first Godfather film. Vito Corleone retired and Michael assumed the role of Don. Interestingly, the same thing happened. Many continued to see Vito as "the real Don" and Michael as a figurehead.
Ultra, you comments continue to assert things which have no canonical reality. I would like to discuss the matter with you but you do not seem to care about Church law or Christ's promise to uphold it. Your insensitivity to the notion that mafia can coerce people to do and say things, it just mind boggling to me as a Sicilian, and very offensive.

I've read your canonical arguments and I've read plenty to the contrary. Your opinon on that subject counts as much as any other lawyer's (would be or otherwise).

"Canonical reality," however, is whatever the judges decide it is, same as with secular law. In this case the bench is packed with Francis' Curia. Hey, I don't like it either.

Christ promised to uphold The Church. Nowhere did He say He would uphold every sub-clause written ex post facto in the millenia following the Ascension.

Why does God allow a coarse, grinning, vulgar Marxist Pope? Why did He allow the Medici Popes or the Borgia Popes? Why does God allow pederast priests and corrupt bishops? Why does God allow evil in the world? To allow us free will, mostly.

I've read various conspiracy theories about why Benedict "really" resigned. You're welcome to them. I find the notion... improbable and that's putting it politely.

I was under the impression the mafia was opposed to marxism since it was bad for business... but that's another matter.
If you do not believe that Christ upholds in Heaven the laws of the Church, then I see no need to debate with you, because I am a Catholic and the Church teaches this. Only someone who doubts that the Church as institution was founded by God could possibly admit that this is not the case.

The Church also teaches that The Pope is the temporal head of the Church. Despite all your explanations and hopes to the contrary, that's currently Jorge Bergoglio. "The Chruch teaches this" as well. That is what Catholics believe. You -choose- to believe otherwise, which is certainly your right and with ample reason. Give others that same courtesy. Please refrain from casting aspersions on …More

Please refrain from casting aspersions on the faith of others, particularly under these trying times.

...because very soon, you won't have a frail, obviously dying man to hold up as "the real Pope" anymore. Then you're going to have to acknowledge it's Bergoglio or no one.

"Only someone who doubts that..etc.".
Your Fallacy Is: No True Scotsman.
