Michael Voris: Rogue's Gallery



Michael Voris' Vortex today features the first 10 of 20 of the men who did the most damage to the Church in our time. It's a good survey to remind us of how we got to where we are. Viewers are encouraged to rank the 10. The Bear doesn't see the point in that. They're all Satan's sock puppets.

Of course, one name will be conspicuously absent.

  1. I think Father Guido Sarducci ought rank number 1. His 'pope soap on a rope' was too much.

  2. How about Pope Montini, Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini, S.J., Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, C.M. and the 'Black Pope' Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Archbishop Rembert Weakland, O.S.B., Archbishop Raymond Gerhardt Hunthausen, Rev. Richard Peter McBrien?

    Just strolling down memory lane.

    1. I think Arrupe and Mcbrien made the list. "Pope Montini" is a saint, which is an exercise of the Church's infallibility. Bugnini may make into the second 10 tomorrow. As a dark horse, Patriarch Maximos IV Sayegh who played such a poisonous role at Vatican II. And let us not forget St. Pope John XXIII. It doesn't say malice must be involved. Saints can make mistakes. Vatican II was a huge one.

    2. "Pope Montini" = Bl Paul VI? If yes, not yet a saint. Beatifications are not infallible.

  3. Last vote from me. I'm having too much fun with this topic.

    Let us not forget what the Penguin did to poor Jake and Elwood Blues!

    1. The Bear exists to serve. And entertain. But you seem to be doing a pretty good job on the latter yourself, Your Honor.

  4. Perhaps we all should appear on that list, mindful that our sins wound the Body of Christ

  5. Church Militant's decision to avoid criticism of Pope Francis made no sense to me. But maybe they were right about that decision. It now appears that most Catholics are not paying attention to what is going on in the church, or if they are, most seem to not care and many approve of it. That is the conclusion I have come to after significant research and study, which consists of reading and commenting on Catholic blogs. So perhaps CM knew which way the wind really was blowing and they decided they did not want to take on a hurricane. I'm always wondering about the numbers or majority and which side they are on, and I am beginning to feel strongly we are entirely a minority. Or does that make us a remnant. I would like to see something that speaks to this question, but never do.

    1. Bear just happened to write about the remnant, in Vatican I vs. New Teaching on Jews.

    2. I believe we are in the less than one percent group. 99% of Catholics see Pope Francis in a favorable light. Why? All loving, all welcoming, peace everywhere, heaven for all.

      Madison Avenue could not do any better.

  6. Voris left of one of my fellow parishioners---Dr. Daniel Dombrowski, philosophy prof at Jesuit Seattle U. He wrote the book A Brief Liberal Catholic Defense of Abortion in which he compared abortion to mowing grass.

  7. I'd actually vote for two non-persons as having done the most damage: 1) the phrases "subsists in" in Vatican II, which confused everyone as to whether the Catholic Church was actually the Church Jesus founded, or is coextensive with it, and 2) Nostra Aetata, which made the former sin of indifferentism a new dogma.

  8. Has the Bear seen the new video from the Pope?:

    1. Thanks, I have now. Pretty bland. Somehow "consumerism" is liked to environmental problems on the planet, so we shouldn't practice it. Hard to argue against consumerism from a Christian standpoint. The big message is that we can look forward to these slick videos on a regular basis.

    2. Though bland, perhaps it is still very poisonous, just like last month's: http://www.onepeterfive.com/gaia-church-love-the-earth-heaven-can-wait/

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts.
