CATHOLIC CANCEL CULTURE: Conservative Texas Bishop is Removed Over Criticism of Pope Francis
A popular Texas Bishop has been removed from his post by the Catholic Church for being outspoken against the leftist direction of the church under the stewardship of Pope Francis.
Bishop Joseph Strickland, who led the diocese at Tyler, Texas, was removed from his position on Nov. 11. He had previously been under investigation over social media posts that slammed Pope Francis.
“The blasphemy is that this holy priest is canceled while an evil president promotes the denial of truth and the murder of the unborn at every turn, Vatican officials promote immorality and denial of the deposit of faith and priests promote gender confusion devastating lives…evil,” Strickland wrote in a Twitter post after anti-abortion activist and former priest Frank Pavone was defrocked last year.
Bishop Strickland had been undeniably successful in Tyler Texas. According to the National Catholic Register, 21 men are being trained to be priest in an area of 119,168 Catholics and the diocese is expected to match 99 percent of its 2.3 million fundraising goal six months ahead of the plans.
Despite growing the church and inspiring Catholics, Strickland is being punished because of his unwillingness to bow to the Francis regime where the truth of Christ is replaced with the false idol of globalism.
Pope Francis has made his liberal agenda clear at every turn, as Big League Politics has reported:
“Pope Francis, the protector of pedophile priests, is launching new attacks against the traditional Latin mass.
Francis announced on Friday that he is cracking down against the celebration of certain sacraments in the Latin mass that he has deemed divisive toward his agenda of subverting the Catholic Church with his Marxist agenda.
“As pastors we must not lend ourselves to sterile polemics, capable only of creating division, in which the ritual itself is often exploited by ideological viewpoints,” said the prefect of the Vatican’s liturgy office, Archbishop Arthur Roche, in his address to the world’s bishops.
The new rules from Francis will make it more difficult for traditionalists to perform the sacraments of Baptism, Marriage and Anointing of the Sick according to the old rites of passage. It is no coincidence that Francis is doing this during the Christmas season, according to his critics within the church.
“Benedict XVI had brought peace to the church. An end to the liturgical wars,” the traditionalist blog, Rorate Caeli, told The Associated Press. “The current pope has chosen to reignite them. There is no logical reason for that. Just an underlying desire for division and violence.”
Joseph Shaw, who leads the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales, said that the celebration of the traditional Latin mass “will become extremely difficult” under Francis’ new regime.
“This would drastically reduce the number of celebrations, and cause great pastoral harm,” he said.”
Recent news that Pope Francis is mainstreaming transgenders in the Catholic Church shows that this man is a heretic and an antichrist. He is one of the many demonic architects of the New World Order.
