Bergoglio Gives Powerful Office to
“Heal Me with Your Mouth”

Catechism for Youth …
In a not-surprising move that has startled
even the usually supportive gallery of Bergoglio’s choir, Jorge has
appointed Archbishop Victor Fernández of Argentina to the powerful post
of head of the (now-called) Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith.
It is a puzzling move given Fernández’ lackluster theological credentials
for this historically intellectually high-caliber position — but, we
must emphasize, not given his admittedly “progressive” theological vision
which, he says, exceeds even that of Bergoglio’s! This does not bode
well for the Church.
At first glimpse, what shall we say of our new man in office? Let us
Perhaps it was simply “a night out on the town … with the boys,” but
this photo reveals nothing of the gravitas that we would expect of a
man to be appointed to one of the highest and authoritative offices
in the Roman Curia.
A man who has even once dressed and posed in this effeminate
manner, and, even more troubling still, who, had written a book salaciously
titled “Heal Me with Your Mouth” The Art of Kissing, should —
if only for the sake of avoiding compound scandal — be excluded from

But not — not, if that person was Bergoglio’s ghost-writer for
his own deeply defective and scandalous Apostolic Exhortation Amoris

look at a few lines to see if our skepticism is warranted:

Your lips murder.
Your eyes don’t notice,
the wandering eyes that are preoccupied
before the divine flesh
of your mouth.
And you pensively miss
with that open mouth,
while you remain
the raving lunatics.
Come on down, my dear,
before you awaken
with a terrible hickey.
How was God so cruel
as to give you that mouth…

This is not poetry. It is prurience.
Even the title is strangely evocative of his/Bergoglio’s The Joy
of Love …
Bergoglio may yet come to regret this “in-your-face”-choice-because-I-can-make-it!
appointment. Except for the down-payment I would say that the devil
is yet to be paid.
But then, pay-back has always been a
