Francis vs. Jesus Christ


Logical contradiction between Christ and pope Francis

A Very Serious Matter of



is the Servant greater than his Master?



I wish to invoke several absolutely vital, indeed, indispensable, passages from Holy Scripture — words of Our Blessed Lord Himself, and of His Apostles.

I then wish to present the words of Francis.

Sacred Scripture is clear about the matter at hand, and Francis’s words are equally clear and unambiguous.

However, a reading of the two, both in conjunction and contraposition — apart from the profoundly questionable theological adaptation of the German philosopher Martin Heidegger’s “hermeneutics” and the German “Emeritus” Benedict’s adjunct “of continuity” — reveals not simply a disjunction (semiotic or otherwise) but much more importantly a contradiction.

We are well aware of the Scriptural references adduced, but perhaps less aware of Francis’s repudiation of them.

I think it important to make them clear, and to allow the Catholic reader to make the necessary inferences — even deductions — entailed, completely explicit — to such a point that even the most disinterested reader will arrive at an ineluctable conclusion at which he will recognize either correspondence or contradiction. The conclusion is of the utmost importance, involving as it does, the raison d'etre and concomitantly the primary mission of the Catholic Church: Salus Animarum, or the Salvation of Souls.



“Peter and John replied: Do you think that God wants us to obey You — or Him?” (Acts of the Apostles 4.19)

Jesus Christ uttered the following:

  • “Go therefore, and teach all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teach them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” (Saint Matthew 28.19-20)

  • “Go into the whole world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.” (Saint Mark 16.15-16)

Francis, contradicting Christ, uttered the following:

  • “Do you need to convince the other to become Catholic?  No! No! No!  Go out and meet him. He is your brother. This is enough.

  • Proselytism is solemn nonsense. It makes no sense!

  • We [just] need to get to know each other.”

What is more:

The Apostle Saint Paul argued the following:

  • How then shall they call on Him, in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe him, of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they be sent ...?  (Romans 10.14-16)

  • Woe is unto me if I preach not the Gospel. (I Corinthians 9.16)


God or Francis: but not Both

The obvious question is “How do we reconcile these quite disparate and apparently contradictory utterances?”

The answer is equally clear: we cannot. They are contradictory. What Christ, Saint John, and Saint Paul teach is not simply incompatible with what Francis teaches — but, much more seriously — irreconcilable.

Three are wrong, or one is wrong.

Not all can be wrong, but not all can be right.

It is a matter of Freshman Logic 101: The Principle of Non-Contradiction which holds that “contradictory propositions cannot both be true, e. g. the two propositions “A is B” and “A is not B” are mutually exclusive. Formally, this is expressed as the tautology ~(p & ~p)” and The Law of the Excluded Middle which “states that for any proposition, either that proposition is true, or its negation is.”

The Frightening Conclusion? Francis is either a heretic — or non compos mentis (not of a sound mind).

He can be both. But he cannot be neither.
