Pope Benedict XVI, who stepped down from the papacy in 2013, is making his opinions known about the LGBT agenda.
“A century ago, anyone would have thought it absurd to talk about homosexual marriage. Today those who oppose it are excommunicated from society,” Benedict XVI said.
“It’s the same thing with abortion and creating human life in the laboratory,” he said while adding that it is “only natural” for Catholics to “fear the spiritual power of the Antichrist.”
Benedict is making his voice heard through an authorized biography that was published today in his native Germany. The book, “Benedict XVI – A Life,” also claims that a “malignant distortion of reality” has been at work against his teachings in recent years by Catholic officials desperate to subvert the faith.
“The spectacle of reactions coming from German theology is so misguided and ill-willed that I would prefer not to speak of it,” Benedict said.
“I would rather not analyse the actual reasons why people want to silence my voice,” he added.
The German branch of the Catholic Church has accepted the liberalization of church doctrine in line with Benedict’s successor Pope Francis. Although Benedict maintains that his “personal friendship with Pope Francis has not only endured, but grown,” the two men have major differences in their approach to Catholic theology.
Pope Francis has been extremely pro-gay, and even told an individual who was raped by a pedophile priest that God made him to be homosexual.
Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean man who was raped by a homosexual predator priest, said that during their April 2018 meeting Pope Francis told him: “You know Juan Carlos, that does not matter. God made you like this. God loves you like this. The Pope loves you like this and you should love yourself and not worry about what people say.”
Pope Francis has waged war against conservative Catholics (ie. Catholics who actually believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ) throughout his reign as pontiff:
Pope Francis delivered a Christmas message at Paul VI Hall in Vatican City on Saturday in which he blamed conservative Catholics for the church becoming less relevant in the West.
“Today we are no longer the only ones that produce culture, no longer the first nor the most listened to,” said Francis, who has resided over financial and moral scandals that have shaken the church to its core.
“The faith in Europe and in much of the West is no longer an obvious presumption but is often denied, derided, marginalized and ridiculed,” he added.
Francis said that conservative Catholics need to get with the times, and those who believed in tradition are getting in the way of the “common good.” Francis has used his position of authority within the church to argue for gun control, a world government to combat climate change, and porous migration policies.
“Rigidity that is born from fear of change and ends up disseminating stakes and obstacles in the ground of the common good, turning it into a minefield of misunderstanding and hatred,” Francis said.
Although Benedict will not criticize Francis specifically, it is clear that he is opposing Francis’ moves to lead the Catholic Church astray.
Upcoming Book Shows the Heroism of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Who Exposed Defrocked Sex Abuse Cardinal
Viganò would make a great candidate for saint.
An upcoming book, Finding Viganò: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World, profiles the courage and strength of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a whistleblower who exposed how a pedophile priest was being harbored by marxist apostate Pope Francis.
LifeSiteNews explains that book author Dr. Robert Moynihan was able to spend a few days with Viganò in July 2019, a rarity considering his reclusion since 2018. Viganò continues to stay in touch with a close circle of family members and friends while worshipping the Lord out of the public eye.
Viganò showed himself in public in January 2020 to pray and protest against the German Episcopal Conference and its President Cardinal Marx, who are pushing for Christian acceptance of homosexuality and other forms of sexual deviancy. However, Viganò has largely been in hiding since he published his iconic report regarding the rehabilitation of pedophile Cardinal Theodore McCarrick by Pope Francis after the Vatican fully understood that he preyed upon innocent children.
Big League Politics reported on McCarrick’s defrocking by the Catholic Church last year in the aftermath of Viganò’s shocking allegations:
A former Roman Catholic Cardinal who was forced to resign from his office for sexual abuse last summer was dismissed from the clerical state in a Vatican trial on Friday.
Theodore McCarrick, 88, is the most senior member of the Catholic clergy to be defrocked in modern times. McCarrick was officially removed from the clergy on charges of soliciting sex while hearing confessions.
McCarrick had been first busted in July when a former altar boy went public with a story that involved McCarrick unzipping his pants and groping him in New York 1972. Another adult man then came public with his account of being abused by McCarrick as a boy, beginning when he was 11.
The sexual abuse accusations against the Cardinal led to several former Catholic seminarians stepping forward with accounts of McCarrick’s gay relationships with them. McCarrick had gained a reputation for abusive solicitation of men studying at seminaries to become Catholic priests.
The church judicial proceedings in regards to the abuse attributed to McCarrick revealed what many saw as a lack of will to confront allegations against the Archbishop of Washington among senior Vatican officials.
An Italian bishop, Carlo Maria Vigano, has accused Pope Francis of having prior knowledge of the accusations against McCarrick before they surfaced publicly. Vigano even took the almost entirely unprecedented step of calling for the Pope’s resignation over his handling of the now-disgraced former Cardinal.
Church authorities in the United States may have been secretly aware of the accusations against McCarrick, sweeping the reports under the rug.
Moynihan describes Viganò as “arguably one of the loneliest men in the world” while being forced into hiding to protect his own safety. Viganò is paying the price for having integrity and character in a world that is increasingly dominated by the Beast.
Despite the hurdles, Viganò does not regret exposing the Vatican’s protection of McCarrick and demanding the resignation of McCarrick’s enabler Pope Francis.
“Having clearly covered for McCarrick, it was only right that he first did what he asked the Chilean bishops to do,” Viganò told Moynihan about why it was right to demand Pope Francis’ resignation,
“It was something I had to do.” he explained. “I think that I have been a witness to the truth.”
He added that “my conscience is telling me to protect the Church. I see that the devil has been entering into the Church, on the top of it, and so that I have to stand up.”
If righteous Catholics can ultimately rise up and defeat the “deep church,” as Viganò refers to it, he will likely be remembered as one of the greatest followers of Christ ever to live and be a prime candidate for sainthood. Finding Viganò will be available for sale in November.
