VICIOUS BEAR ATTACK!

"If you had been of the world, the world would love its own."


Worldling. Traitor. Quisling. Enemy.

Fan Mail From Some Flounder?

A faithful reader has asked the Bear's opinion on a piece by a popular, if angry-sounding, ephemerist, regarding Pope Francis. While the Bear has never considered consulting a human's opinion (finding woodland creatures to be far more sensible) he granted the reader's request in his benevolence.

The Answer in 32 Points

The piece explains why Pope Francis is not the Pope, and why Pope Benedict still is, and, moreover, the worst Pope in history. In summary, we have to wait for the real Pope (Benedict) to die, then elect his successor, which would completely bypass Francis.

It consists of 32 points, and readers are invited to spread it far and wide.

Now, the Bear has on his own pondered the implications of Benedict's sort-of resignation, and has opined (to much criticism; well-deserved for all he knows) that it is not crazy to wonder if his resignation was legitimate. The Bear believes it is odd enough to raise questions.

The Evil Pact that Elevated Benedict, and Forced Him to Sort of Resign

The world loves its own.
However, the author of the piece in question states it as a fact, and attributes it to an evil pact between homosexuals in the Church and Benedict. He could be pope for a few years, but would have to resign, or face repercussions - possibly blackmail involving something to do with homosexuals. So Pope Benedict resigned for "fear of the wolves," but didn't.

This doesn't sound like a very well-thought out evil pact to the Bear.

The Bear supposes that is possible, but would need a whole lot of convincing evidence to accept it as a fact. Obviously, the author believes her evidence is irrefutable. Anyway, the answer is Benedict is still Pope, because he resigned in accordance with some evil pact, so Francis was never elected, and is not pope.

The Bear Calmly and Reasonably States His Position

The world loves its own.
This is what the Bear thinks.

These are very strange and troubling times. The man currently occupying the Vatican causes any thinking, faithful Catholic to suffer, and is doing real damage. The Bear has no qualms whatsoever in saying no pontificate, no period, has been more destructive and dangerous to the Faith. This pontificate is the perfect storm, and the windswept house is -  impossibly - blowing away before our eyes.

Hardly a day goes by without Francis attempting to destroy the Faith. The Bear is not going to extend this article with examples. You know as well as he does. He has surrounded himself with apostles of evil. He does not like the Catholic Church, or Catholics, the real ones, anyway, whom he constantly abuses. He loves Lutherans. Muslims. Evangelicals. After all, the Pope hardly gets press for palling around with Catholics!

Francis has sewn his false white garment to the coat tails of the Lord of the World, and is loved by the World. We all know what Jesus said about that. "Hey, climate change? I'm on it. Oh, yeah, I can feel the love!" Mr. Humble loves the world, and loves attention, and pushes his face into media to (1) gratify his massive ego, and (2) advance his infernal objectives.

"If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you." John 15:19.

Whatever Gets You Through the Night

The world loves its own.
Where honest Catholics go from there is not for the Bear to judge. In some ways, we are like hikers lost in a dark wood, infested by vicious Bears. We can holler back and forth, but we are each on our own. The Bear would counsel, worry about the Bears. Don't argue whether they are legitimately in these woods, or whether you should throw stones or kneel before them. (Believe the Bear, it doesn't matter.)

Some say we are getting our just desserts from God. (Not the Bear.) Others solve the problem by simply crossing Francis out - he's not the Pope. (The Bear has never said that, nor does he maintain he is, either.) If someone thinks an evil pact with homosexuals elevated Benedict, then caused him to resign, but not, then who is the Bear to dispute that?

The Bear does not tell you whether Bergoglio is pope or not. He lacks the facts, and he is not an expert in these matters. Legal specialties are seldom as simple as non-specialists imagine.

Whatever He Is, the Evil Rat-Bastard Has Declared War On Catholicism

The world loves its own.

Sorry, but these are not normal times. Things that would normally be unthinkable must be considered. The Pope is the symbolic focus of Catholicism. It is no small thing to attack the Pope. But he leaves us no choice.

What the Bear says is that we have an arsonist in the Vatican. He should be resisted with every tool at our disposal. If the Bear can write something, that causes people to lose respect for Bergoglio, then the Bear is doing the Lord's work. We do not want people to respect Bergoglio! We want to expose him for the danger he is! That is why the Bear does not take a "respectful tone." Mockery, satire, invective, criticism, agitprop, it's all good to a Bear.

We all have our own opinions on various things, but we all agree that Bergoglio is the enemy of the Faith, be he Pope or pretender. The Bear is happy to let smarter ephemerists than he argue about the man's status. The Bear does not need to resolve that question to know what to do.

The world loves its own.
Bergoglio is the enemy! This is what the ursine 450 gram brain knows. It doesn't have room for endless arguments about footnotes, and conspiracies, and legal niceties. A traitor. A quisling. A man who shakes hands with demons from Hell. In short: dinner.

Our blogging is probably doing more to undermine this idiot than you imagine. He does seem obsessed with his enemies, and stone-throwers. Oh, Hell yes. Give the Bear a big stone and he will pound Bergoglio in the head with it. (Bears being not very accurate throwers, but can run very fast.)

We know what Catholicism is. Let's not get lost in the weeds about conspiracy theories. Pick up stones. Don't hide them! Throw them while laughing maniacally. One after another until we win, and Bergoglio is buried under a pile of stones as big as Mt. Etna. When they are more afraid of us than eager to tear down the Church, we win. There may even come a time for propagande par le fait. What has to happen before you fight? What dogmas have to be discarded in the name of "mercy?" What percentage of the Church are you willing to see destroyed? How many souls are you happy to see damned?

It's the oldest decision in the world: fight or flight. Can you eat me, or can I eat you? The Bear says, "I can eat you, evil rat-bastard," and the Bear will fight, and it isn't going to be pretty, but it will be true.

  1. So you have read Ann Barnhardt. I thought I was a right wing traditionalist fanatic. But I don't even compare to our beloved would-be St Joan of Arc.

    1. In the interest of my beloved woodland creatures, I will, should they request, snuffle around a bit in unfamiliar territory. I am not interested in dissing another ephemerist, but let's just say she's not going to be on my select blog links. But hey, whatever else she's doing, she's on Bergoglio like a rabid terrier. Kinda intense for the Bear, who prefers delivering his propaganda while riding a bicycle around the center ring.

    2. Owl likes the Bear's propaganda to the point that Owl refers to him as Great Bear (also he is oh so much bigger than Owl).

      Ann is often read by Owl and she gets a lot of credit, but Owl thinks her frustration with Pope Francis got the better of her and she is trying to not become all out schismatic by making the case the Pope Benedict XVI is still the real Pope. Her argument, as good as it is, boils down to simple begging the question / proving the premise from the conclusion.

      We all want Pope Francis to go away. HOWEVER pretending that he isn't Pope, neither makes him go away nor does anything about the problem.

    3. As I have said, the Bear does not read her, and won't link to her, for reasons sufficient for his purposes. Not going to pronounce a fatwah against her though. Grownups can make their own decisions by looking at writings and puctures and exercising discernment. But Bear's gut says... um, no.

    4. Barnhardt's notions of course could be right, but they just reek of effeminacy and weakness and a lack of understanding of just HOW BAD Popes have been in the past and how bizarre have been some of the elections. She's not known for being lady-like, but her assessment of things uncovers a girlish inability to handle the heavy lifting of SIN that has at times befallen the papacy. She is looking for an easy out, and she found one in "Bergoglio is an anti-Pope".

      Yeah, we are in REALLY bad times, but whether the Pope is the Pope or not, well, if it makes her feel better, and that really is what I think this is about for her, then maybe it serves some purpose.

      Having said all that, sure, it is possible Bergoglio might be a fraud, but the same could be said in retrospect of other Popes if nice and neat and clean conclaves are your thing.

      The one technical detail i would bring up that sort of sinks her ship is that even tho there is indeed a law condemning the lobbying for popes, it doesn't say that the subsequent election of such a lobbied-for pope is invalid.

      I think the Bear, being a lawyer and all that, probably sees the point.

    7. Vlademar...Is it not the tendency to look for the easy out when in a difficult position? We must all resit that temptation.

      There is so much sin woven through this mess that it can hardly be sorted out.

  2. Wherein Owl Makes Three Harsh Comments

    1. If one happens to go to Mass and the local bishop and Pope Francis are not prayed for specifically during the Eucharistic Prayers, one is engaging in FORMAL PUBLIC SCHISM. This is very dire for the clerics involved.

    2. I have yet to see a "Traditionalist" throw Vatican II at Pope Francis. Vatican II can be a dull weapon in an apologist's arsenal, but it is not so dull as many think.

    3. If Pope Francis is acknowledged Pope, then those who don't like him have recourse. The laity have rights and they can make claims and demands before other clerics and the Just Judge of the World....but only so long as they consider Pope Francis Pope. What obligation does a pretender to the thrown have towards the kingdoms subjects? None. However, the laity can make a claim against Pope Francis (because he is Pope). Make the claim and demand of our fathers and Our Father that Pope Francis does his job.

    Furthermore, I consider that one should nail their local priest's foot to the floor.

    1. I am going along with Francis as Pope as a matter of policy and convenience, and I am not persuaded by conspiracy theories. (Lawyer mind at work.) I have also fukly embraced the "have your pope and beat him, too" policy. I am Bearish not because I am angry, but because I believe the only thing that Francis will pay attention to is a sharp backlash that hits him where he lives: his ego. I also believe every point on the credibility meter we can dial down on this horrible pope is a win. Typical Bear logic. But the Bear would burst the bubble of superultramontanism that seems to have infected the laity since the first "media superstar pope," St. John Paul II. The Bear can only do so much in his tiny woodland kingdom, though. Isaiah walked around butt naked for three years. Sometimes ya gotta be outrageous to make God's point. I foresee open warfare ahead. And I din't think it is going to be all metaphorical.

    2. Ha, "fully embraced" although the tone on the typo might be not far from the truth.

      Delete
    3. Nailing their foot to the floor is one option. Being a Bear, he sometimes imagines nailing other parts there, but it gets pretty horrific.

      Delete
    4. I don't know anything, but the "false versus true pope" argument leaves me cold, because I'm not sure anything would be done about it even if BXVI came out and said he was being held prisoner in the Vatican and took back the whole retirement thing. We have not one Cardinal willing to really go out on the limb and really warn the faithful in direct and uncomplicated speech. Not one. How many would it take to call a conclave or denounce PF as a false pope? Whatever it is, we don't have enough.

      Delete
    5. Bingo. But the point of my piece is we are all having to feel our way through an unprecedented. situation, and we will each deal with it in our own way. Some ways may seem wacky, but that's beside the point. The simple solution is to agree - out loud - that Francis is horrible. We can all agree on that. The reason I called him a "rat-bastard" was not gratuitous. His power is in perception. The "don't criticize the Pope!" people are just sitting this one out and the Bear has a low opinion of them. Whatever. We need to burst his bubble. Show respect. Oh, Hell no. That is the last thing the Bear will ever do. Enemy. Traitor. Danger to beloved woodland creatures. Bear could give a crap if he's the Pope, or Joe Blow from Kokomo. Throw rocks at him. Don't get lost in the weeds in conspiracy theories, unless that's how you resolve your cognitive dissonance. You get all this, Kathleen, I know, and you're spot on. Her scenario is never going anywhere (which I think she admits). At the bottom of all of this is a Catholic superstitious dread of The Pope. Bear's program is superior than human's. Don't care. Enemy. Rip his jawbone off. Bears tend to get right to the heart of an issue - usually through the rib cage.

    6. Yes Great Bear. Owl has things to hoot. Owl also doesn't have the luxury of anything other than the local parish. His other option is to stay home. So Owl flaps around for the sake of others contemplating staying home. Don't.

      Conspiracy theories are a waste of time. One will argue themselves into a bad place. Mysticism is good but superstition is bad.

    7. Please don't think I was referring to your writings, because the valid versus invalid pope is still interesting on some level, but it doesn't move me. We aren't likely to get any traction on that no matter what happens. It would have been like finding out Obama was born in Syria, it's not going to make any difference. He was in power and had a billion zombies around him. Same thing here.
      No, I NEED your musings on this pope, Bear. I am out here in Novus Ordo Land, and it is a grand relief to read what you write, be it humorous or as serious as a giant bear claw, and I don't mean the donut.
      I know you did worry about what was okay to write about a pope. This is all new. It is Cognitive Dissonance, it deserves caps. Very strange, and unsettling, even knowing how absolutely bad he is. If he isn't as bad as we think, then we got everything wrong. Gosh darn these blankety blank men who have screwed us up so royally!

    8. Hey! I just noticed your original artwork! Sweet! Now we see where your baby gets her talent! uh oh, where's Red Death...lol

    9. Better be more worried about Bear's daughter after that display of fourth grade scribbling. But it is hard holding my computer pen in Bear paw! As for conspiracy theories, for all I know Obama was born in Kenya. I think this is about the same level, I.e. (love the way a/c will NOT allow me a proper I.e.) just possible, but useless. But again, Bear does not care. He is talking a sledgehammer to the Pieta. Not going to wonder about why, and if he bought a ticket. Also not gonna make fun of anyone's solution to cognitive dissonance first aid, as I saw one big trad blog doing today, and have even experienced myself, from big names that think "the Bear thing" is stupid, or whatever. Yeah, ell, my ephemeris is a welcoming place where readers don't get shaken down for money before they can read one sentence. Bear is happy for all those bloggers out there who have everything figured out and can make fun of others trying to bear with it. Bear can also catch their scent through the internet.

      P.S. email?

    10. Those money shakedown popups sure are annoying. At least those trying to reconcile their cognitive dissonance by whatever means necessary, recognize the threat. The superstitious papalotrists drive me crazy. Speaking of Bear's daughter, she sure is attractive. Must take after her mother, rather than the hairy ursine with 450 gram brain.

  5. The moment I heard Bergoglio speak his first heresy, I knew something was off about this so-called pope.

    It brought me back to what St. Francis had warned about a future illigitimate election of non-canonically selected pope.

  6. Two anonomous posts, one excoriating the Bear and second "Boycott American Women" rant. Both curiously similar. The Bear is. Ot sure if he was shooting at Bear or someone else, which is an interesting thought.

  7. I agree with you Bear, it is epistimically uncertain whether Benedict's resignation was invalid. Perhaps Barnhardt is too certain. There could be a flaw in her argument. But it is quite possible. But what is certain is that the Church will sort it out in time, and it will eventually be made clear.

    1. I am certain that it was valid because I trust Pope Benedict XVI. His ecclesiology is outstanding, he would do things half-measures, nor is his characters one were you couldn't trust in what he had to say. But if you look at the actual abdication, it is valid. Invalidity is a rather high bar to prove in the cases of abdication.

      Delete
  8. We're just all screwed. Get used to being part of a remnant. We're stuck with Pope Francis until he dies and even when he does, it was Vatican II that got the destruction of the Church up and running in the first place and eventually paved the way for a Bergoglio.

    1. Bears do the screwing around here. They do not get screwed. Bear will dance on Bergoglio's grave, God willing. This will eventually work out, but it will take much longer if your average conservative hand-wringer doesn't take a real-world stand. Bears know problems are hard, and they're not very good at solving them. But people are soft, except for the crunchy parts inside. This will only be resolved by solving people. Then everything will sort out. It is going to get very messy, God willing!

    2. Yes, however, while here came from Vatican II , it is not correct to say that VII is the primary cause of today. VII is the result of what came before it. VII is no robber Council...the Church of the mid 20th century gave birth to it.

      Delete
  9. Absolutely agree. And after this stunt with the Knights of Malta, I think we've got to move fast. He is drunk with power and now that he knows he can get away with it, he is not beyond simply throwing out all his "enemies" - removing their red hats, their bishoprics, their parishes and even excommunicating them. And he's going to find some way to strike at the laity soon, too.

    I agree that Benedict's resignation was probably not valid, although I have a different conspiracy theory - but be that as it may, Benedict can be of no help to us now, whether because he doesn't want to be or because he's drugged out of his mind in his little prison in the Vatican. The reason it would be good for Benedict to retract his resignation is that would render all of Frankie's "papal" acts invalid and null, since he was never actually the pope. But Benedict is not going to do anything and we shouldn't be waiting for it.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I don't doubt anymore that Benedict was blackmailed into leaving. I wish he'd been steadfast enough to refuse the papacy in the first place but he was old and frail and apparently didn't have anyone strong on his side.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well,I'm not Catholic,but I am stunned at the way Frankie handled Fra Matthew and the Knights of Malta like some kind of Mafia capo...."That's a nice little knighthood order you got there,pal....sure would be a shame to see anything happen to it"
