Dr. Taylor Marshall: I would be thrilled if Bergoglio … was not validly elected

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Dr. Taylor Marshall speaks with Mr. John Henry Westen on the invalidity of Benedict’s renunication and Bergoglio’s election.  The converation begins at 51:14 in yesterday’s podcast by Dr. Marshall.

In response to Dr. Marshall’s question on the question of the validity of Benedict’s renunciation and Bergoglio’s election, Mr. Weston says:  I know these discussions are going on among the hierarchy.

However, Fred Martinez at Catholic Monitor Blog, remarks correctly:

Question for Westen:

If lay people are not allowed an opinion, how can he, a layman, affirm Francis is the pope?

At LifeSiteNews, only lay people who question Francis’s validity are not allowed to have opinions. Everybody else is.

My Comments

I think that they speak of this in public, shows that their narrative control is bleeding on all sides.

Their position is emotional politics, not rational, dogmatic, canonical.

They are not thinking about the problem, they are thinking AROUND the problem. But a Catholic is called by Christ to confront the elephant in the room. The Faithful do not need media leadership which can not handle that level of reality.

  1. Michael,

    To answer your rhetorical question: No where. Unfortunately, Westen being an ex-atheist, is still a liberal who thinks the thoughts of the masses must be controlled by those who “know better”. I think the public needs to start questioning the political agenda of a man who wrote an article for the Huffington Post when he first launched LifeSite News under the Obama era. He has been anointed by the elites.

  2. He’s literate & can read the Canons like everyone else. If he gave the time to do this there is only one conclusion he can arrive at.

    LSN is Opus Dei in practice. The bulk of their income comes from that source & they are quite indifferent in knocking off commenters who do not agree with their opinions. Now, of course, things are getting really tight financially, not only with LSN but with nearly all the elite Trad Inc. members & they are scrounging around for donations from the very people who tired of their antics long ago – no shame, no repentance but the continued verbiage of how fantastic a job they are doing.

  3. Ana–Opus Dei is a strong supporter of Vatican II as indicated by my former experience with them. Vatican II has been a catastrophe for the Church. This alone makes them suspect as the controlled opposition.

  4. Where is it written in Catholic doctrine that lay people cannot have an opinion on the validity of Bergoglio?

    Michael, Galatians 1:6-9 contains the Church’s esrliest surviving and known to be authoritative written anathema from about 50AD, repeated for emphasis.

    “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are confusing you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel [messenger] from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! As we have said before, so now I repeat, if anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that one be accursed!”

    This is not addressed to one or more bishops, but “to the churches of Galatia” (v2b).

    Bergoglio is no angel from heaven or St Paul, but even if he were, by his persistent false teachings he anathematised himself.

  5. Sorry, but I could not even watch five minutes of these two, two-faced, superficial, imbecils. They don’t deserve a single minute of anyone’s attention for having deliberately blocked the Truth about Our Holy Father Benedict XVI, all in the name of Mammon.

  6. When TM seemed to burst onto the Catholic blogosphere last year [to me at least], something in the presentation seemed unreal to me. Even the TM logo on his website put me off (plus I don’t know any Catholics that say stay salty?) I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but his site looks like commercial to me. Since the recent comments regarding the Pope question from Chris Ferrra have come out, I’m even more cautious of any of them. TM reminds me more of my classmates from business school. In any event, I trust place my trust in Jesus and His Blessed Mother, and keep reminding myself, in the end, “Her Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
