Fake-Pope Francis invites satanist Katy Perry to promote Transcendental Meditation at Vatican

Pop singer Katy Perry is a self-professed satanist.

In an interview with a woman wearing a pair of upside-down cross earrings, Perry said she had sold her soul to the Devil. She said:

“I released a record when I was 16, because I grew up in a household where all I ever did was sing gospel music and my parents were both traveling ministers, I kind of sing about what was going on in my life at 15. That’s how I got introduced to the music industry. I swear I wanted to be like the Amy Grant* of music. It didn’t work out, so I sold my soul to the Devil.”

*Amy Grant is called the Queen of Christian Pop.

If you think that interview was a fluke or that Perry was joking, here she is some years later, saying the same thing:

“When I was 15, because I grew up in a household where all I ever did was listen to gospel music and my parents were both traveling ministers, so I kind of sang about what was going on in my life at 15 and that’s how I got introduced to the music industry. I swear I wanted to be like the Amy Grant of music. Yeah. But it didn’t work out, and so I sold my soul to the devil.”

Katy Perry is also a vocal LGBT advocate and a promoter of cannibalism.

But fake pope Francis saw fit to invite this admitted satanist to the Vatican to speak on Transcendental Meditation (TM) at a New Age-y conference on April 26-28, “Unite to Cure — How Science, Technology and the 21st Century Will Impact Culture and Society”.

The conference has the imprimatur of the Vatican: it was co-sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Culture and the CURA Foundation, a tax-exempt global health movement; conference collaborators included the Vatican Secretariat of State, the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, and the Pontifical Academy for Life.

LifeSiteNews reports that among the conference speakers were New Age guru and alternative medicine mogul Deepak Chopra, motivational and self-help life coach Tony Robbins, and pedophile former-VP Joe Biden.

On day three of the Vatican conference, Perry joined a discussion on “Impacting Children’s Health Through (Transcendental) Meditation Globally” with her mentor, Bob Roth — CEO of the David Lynch Foundation and a TM mentor to Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Oz.

Roth’s organization distributed a gift pack to participants at the beginning of the conference, which contained a one-eye “meditating” charm bangle and a book promoting TM.

A Vatican official said: “They did manage to distribute these gifts through (at least) one hotel where some conference participants were staying. Many other guests distributed their own materials to fellow attendees, as is the nature of these events.”

A source close to the Vatican told LifeSiteNews:

“For Katy Perry to speak about Transcendental Meditation from the same seat used by the Pope during major Church meetings is symbolic of the chaos, disorientation and scandal that marks this pontificate. It would be one thing to have her presence moderated by a Church leader, but to have the podium given over to celebrity TM proponents with no Church voice to counter them is unconscionable.”

Perry and her boyfriend, paddling-a-canoe-while-nude actor Orlando Bloom, were later treated to a royal tour of the Vatican by Archbishop Paul Tighe, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Culture, and an audience with fake-Pope Francis.

The Catholic Church has long regarded Transcendental Meditation to be an occult practice:

  • In 1989 in a letter to bishops issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (who became Pope Benedict XVI) warned against TM: “it can degenerate into a cult of the body and can lead surreptitiously to considering all bodily sensations as spiritual experiences.”
  • In 2003, the Pontifical Council for Culture issued this warning about TM: “Many people are convinced that there is no harm in ‘borrowing’ from the wisdom of the East, but the example of Transcendental Meditation (TM) should make Christians cautious about the prospect of committing themselves unknowingly to another religion (in this case, Hinduism), despite what TM’s promoters claim about its religious neutrality.”

LifeSiteNews contacted the Pontifical Council for Culture to ask why Perry was an invited speaker, but has received no response.

Meanwhile, the body of Catholic clergy of cardinals, archbishops, bishops and priests continue their silence about this imposter pope in Rome.

Sunday Devotional: ‘I am the gate’

John 10:9, 11-15, 17, 18

“I am the gate.
Whoever enters through me will be saved,
and will come in and go out and find pasture.
I am the good shepherd.
A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
A hired man, who is not a shepherd
and whose sheep are not his own,
sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away,
and the wolf catches and scatters them.
This is because he works for pay
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd,
and I know mine and mine know me,
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father;
and I will lay down my life for the sheep.
I lay it down on my own.
I have power to lay it down,
and power to take it up again.”

And to the deists and those, like fake pope Francis, who say there’s no need to evangelize Jews and Muslims because they worship the same God as Christians, this is what Jesus the Christ said in John 14:6:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

So, we only have two choices. Either Jesus was a mad man — but He displayed no evidence of insanity or irrationality — or He spoke the truth.

As St. Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said in Acts 4:11-12:

“He is the stone rejected by you, the builders,
which has become the cornerstone.
There is no salvation through anyone else,
nor is there any other name under heaven
given to the human race by which we are to be saved.”

May the love and peace of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Israel’s chief rabbi calls black Americans ‘monkeys’

In a sermon aired by the Israeli news site Ynet, one of Israel’s most senior religious leaders, Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, called black Americans “strange creatures” and “monkeys”.

See “Pope Francis is ashamed of the Cross, knows better than the Gospels”.

Ynet reports that Rabbi Yosef made the remark on Sabbath night, March 17, 2018, which marked the beginning of the month of Nissan, the first month in the Hebrew calendar.

A customary ritual during the month of Nissan is the blessing of trees. Addressing the halachic (Halakha is the collective body of Jewish religious laws) question whether to bless one or two trees, Rabbi Yosef offers examples of other blessings, such as the blessing of “strange creatures” that evoke attention or repulsion, rather than aesthetic pleasure. He says:

“Someone who sees strange creatures blesses them. You see a negro, bless him as an exceptional creature. Which negro? When his father and mother are white and he comes out black.”

In other words, “not every negro needs to be blessed”; only a black person who was born to white parents should be blessed. Yosef continues:

You go around in the streets of America, every five minutes you will see a negro. Do you bless him as an ‘exceptional creature?’ However, he should be a negro whose father and mother are white. We don’t say a blessing for every negro … He needs to be a negro whose father and mother are white … if you know, they had a monkey for a son, they had a son like that.”

A statement issued on Rabbi Yosef’s behalf reads:

“The words of the rabbi are quoted from the Babylonian Talmud in Berakhot. R. Joshua b. Levi said: ‘On seeing pockmarked persons one says: Blessed be He who makes strange creatures. An objection was raised: If one sees a negro … he says: Blessed be He who makes strange creatures…. Our Rabbis taught: On seeing an elephant, an ape, or a long-tailed ape, one says: Blessed is He who makes strange creatures.’”

According to Callum Paton of Newsweek, Yosef is the most senior representative of the Sephardic Jews, who trace their origins to the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa and the Middle East. Ashkenazi Jews, originally from Europe, are led by Chief Rabbi David Lau.

It is not the first time Yosef has caused controversy with his sermons:

  • In May 2017, Yosef compared secular women to animals because they dressed immodestly.
  • In March 2016, Yosef was forced to retract a comment that non-Jews should not live in Israel. He said he was speaking theoretically and in practice non-Jews could live in Israel if they kept religious laws such as not committing idolatry and not eating the limbs from a live animal. He also said non-Jews in Israel should serve Jews.

Actually, it’s not just blacks who are monkeys. According to the Talmud, aka Babylonian Talmud, which supercedes the Torah (or the Old Testament) in authority for Jews:

“All children of the ‘goyim’ (Gentiles or non-Jews) are animals.” -Yebamoth 98a

The Talmud is a collection of books written in Hebrew between the 3rd and 6th centuries as a codification of the oral law that Jewish rabbis claim had been handed down from Moses. The Talmud is blasphemous (Jesus is called a fool, bastard, trickster, who is boiling in excrement in Hell; his mother Mary is called a whore and bestialist), Jewish supremacist, racist (all Christians and non-Jews are sub-human animals), hateful, and many times worse than the Koran.

Polish priest wishes Pope Francis a quick death for open door policy to Muslims

Pope Francis, real name Jorge Bergoglio, has called on Christians in Europe and the U.S. to open their doors to Muslim refugees and migrants. Last August, he went so far as to pontificate that refugees’ wellbeing trumps national security., while he himself is safely ensconced behind the Vatican’s 40 ft. tall walls.

Wall that surrounds the Vatican

Bergoglio’s stance on Muslim refugees and on other issues has so alienated some Catholic clergy that a former high-ranking member of the Roman Curia, the administrative apparatus of the Holy See, penned an open letter. Addressed to Pope Francis, the anonymous cleric lays out the “difficulties” he and “many others have with the way you talk and act.”

Speaking through various mouthpieces, Bergoglio’s response is to threaten his critics, both laity and priests, with excommunication, like Italian priest Alessandro Minutella.

All of which has resulted in what a cardinal calls a “pervading sense of fear” within the Curia, a church in schism, and conservative Catholics “in rebellion”. The editor of the reputable religious journal, First Things, went so far as to declare Francis’ papacy a failure.

The latest development is another, shocking indicator of church schism.

A senior conservative priest in Poland publicly said he wishes Pope Francis a quick death if he continues to refuse to listen to criticisms.

CBS13 Sacramento reports that on February 25, 2018, in a church speech in Krakow, Poland, prominent theologian and former seminar rector Monsignor Edward Staniek said Pope Francis has departed from the teaching of Jesus, and wrongly interprets mercy as opening up to Muslims and allowing communion for divorced Catholics.

Note: According to the Catholic Church’s longstanding teaching, Catholics who had divorced (not annulled) and remarried (outside of the Church) live in mortal sin and are not allowed Holy Communion.

Calling Pope Francis an “alien body” in the church, Msgr. Staniek said the pope’s words are used by secular media that are hostile to the church. Staniek said he’s praying for wisdom for Francis and a “heart open to the Holy Spirit, and if he does not do that, for a quick passage to the House of the Father” — meaning death.

Poland’s leading archbishop, Krakow Archbishop Marek Jedraszewski, said he “deplores” Staniek’s remarks with “great pain and regret”. Jedraszewski said he has discussed them face-to-face with Staniek, and that the Krakow diocese is praying ardently every day with only the best intentions for Francis.

Krakow was the seat of Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, the late Pope St. John Paul II. Poland’s church remains attached to John Paul’s orthodox stance, with a majority of bishops seeing their mission as preserving the traditional Catholic values from secularization.

Fake News: Vatican distorted Pope Benedict XVI’s letter praising Pope Francis

Section 1, Chapter 1, Article 8, No. 1853 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

Sins can be distinguished according to their objects, as can every human act; or according to the virtues they oppose, by excess or defect; or according to the commandments they violate. They can also be classed according to whether they concern God, neighbor, or oneself; they can be divided into spiritual and carnal sins, or again as sins in thought, word, deed, or omission.

Four days ago came news from the Vatican that in a letter Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI praised his successor, Pope Francis, as a “man of profound philosophical and theological formation,” and that there is an “inner continuity” between his pontificate and that of Pope Francis.

Benedict had written the letter in thanks for having received an advance copy of a series of books on the theology of Pope Francis, released on the eve of Francis’ 5-year anniversary as pope.

The Vatican, in the person of Msgr. Dario Edoardo Viganò, prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communication, released this photo (see below) of Benedict’s letter, next to the stacked series of 11 books on Francis’ theology. Note that only the first page of the letter is visible.

In the portion of Benedict’s letter made public by the Vatican Press Office we read the following:

“I applaud this initiative that seeks to oppose and react to the foolish prejudice according to which Pope Francis would only be a practical man devoid of particular theological or philosophical formation, while I would have been only a theoretician of theology that understood little of the concrete life of a Christian today.

The little volumes rightly show that Pope Francis is a man of profound philosophical and theological formation and they help therefore to see the internal continuity between the two pontificates, even with all the differences of style and temperament.”

Nicole Winfield reports for the Associated Press that on March 14, 2018, the Vatican admitted that it had altered the photo of Pope Benedict XVI’s letter about Pope Francis, which changed the meaning of the image in a way that violated photojournalist industry standards.

Most independent news media, including The Associated Press, follow strict standards that forbid digital manipulation of photos. The AP norms, considered to be the industry standard among news agencies, states that “No element should be digitally added to or subtracted from any photograph.”

The Vatican admitted it had blurred the two final lines of the first page of Pope Benedict’s letter where he begins to explain that he had not actually read the books in question, and therefore cannot contribute a theological assessment of Francis as requested by Msgr. Vigano because he has other projects to do.

According to the AP, Msgr. Vigano read only parts of Benedict’s letter during a press conference launching the series of 11 books on Francis’ theology, including the lines that were blurred out. But Vigano didn’t read the whole letter. The Vatican didn’t respond to a request to see the full text.

Remember the sin of omission?

This is what Pope Benedict XVI, age 90, actually wrote in his letter, which is concealed by the Vatican (source: The Remnant):

“However, I don’t feel I can write a brief and dense theological passage on them because throughout my life it has always been clear that I should write and express myself only on books I had really read. Unfortunately, if only for physical reasons, I am unable to read the eleven volumes in the near future, especially as other commitments await me that I have already assumed.

[Tuttavia non mi sento di scrivere su di essi una breve e densa pagina teologica perché in tutta la mia vita è sempre stato chiaro che avrei scritto e mi sarei espresso soltanto su libri che avevo anche veramente letto. Purtroppo, anche solo per ragioni fisiche, non sono in grado di leggere gli undici volumetti nel prossimo futuro, tanto più che mi attendono altri impegni che ho già assunti.]”

In other words, Pope Benedict XVI is saying:

  1. He has not read the series of 11 slim volumes on Pope Francis’ theology.
  2. Consequently, he cannot comment on Pope Francis’ theology, as Mgsr. Vigano requested.
  3. Furthermore, Pope Benedict XVI has no intention to read the series because he has other things to do.

That being said, Pope Benedict XVI did send mixed messages in his letter. As Christopher A. Ferrara of The Remnant points out:

The fact remains, however, that Benedict has lent his name and signature to the fraudulent claim that Bergoglio [Pope Francis’ real name] exhibits a profound philosophical and theological formation, even though he has spent the past five years engaged in shallow mockery of “the theologians,” whom he would consign to a desert island, while shamefully misrepresenting the teaching of Saint Thomas as supportive of his campaign to admit public adulterers to Holy Communion. […]

Despite its contrary signaling, therefore, Benedict’s letter to Vigano must be seen as cooperation in a scheme to rescue Bergoglio’s imploding papacy from itself, no matter what Benedict’s subjective intention may have been in going along with the ruse. The letter’s claim of an “internal continuity” between his pontificate and Bergoglio’s is a transparent evasion of the truth. “Internal continuity” is just another way of saying “apparent lack of continuity.” Nor can the apparent lack of continuity be reduced to “differences of style and temperament.” There is not an even arguable continuity between the two Popes regarding the dominant theme of Bergoglio’s pontificate: an absolutely unparalleled attack on the Sixth Commandment and even the natural law, far more dramatic than Bergoglio merely trudging along the path of “ecumenism,” “dialogue” and “liturgical renewal” established at Vatican II. […]

Benedict would have to know in particular that Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia reduces the Sixth Commandment, an exceptionless precept of the divine and natural law, to a mere “rule” and an “ideal” that does not bind strictly in certain “complex circumstances,” thereby smuggling into the life of the Church, under the guise of “authentic Magisterium,” precisely the evil of situation ethics that John Paul II condemned. […]

The unprecedented and untenable division of the Church into traditionalist, “conservative” and liberal branches, with Bergoglio now clumsily attempting to saw off the first two branches, signals an historical turning point at which it seems only divine intervention of the most dramatic sort will be able to restore the Church [….]

Fake Anti-Semitism: Dual US-Israeli citizen Michael Kadar indicted for anti-Semitic hate crimes

More fake anti-Semitic hate crimes.

The Guardian‘s Peter Beaumont reported in April 2017 that Israeli police arrested a dual US-Israeli citizen, Michael Ron David Kadar, 18, for:

  • Making bomb threats against Jewish centers in the U.S. for “financial gain”;
  • Using sophisticated technology to mask his voice and IP address to make thousands of hoax calls worldwide, including against airlines and police stations;
  • Money laundering; and
  • The attempted blackmail of Ernesto Lopez, a Republican Delaware state senator.

See my post, “Fake Anti-Semitism: Dual US-Israeli citizens made bomb threats against Jewish groups“.

At the time, it was reported that “Israel would probably oppose his extradition to the US, where many of the crimes were allegedly committed.”

Yesterday, February 28, 2018, the Department of Justice’s Office of Public Affairs issued this press release:

The Department of Justice today announced the indictment of Michael Ron David Kadar, 19, who holds dual United States and Israeli citizenship, in three jurisdictions for hate crimes and other offenses.

The indictment from Florida charges Kadar with hate crimes as a result of threatening calls he made to Jewish Community Centers in the state. In addition, the indictment from the District of Columbia charges Kadar with threatening the Israeli Embassy and the Anti-Defamation League in Washington, D.C. The third indictment charges Kadar with cyberstalking and conveying false information to police dispatch regarding harm to private residents in Georgia.

An investigation into numerous threats made to individuals and organizations throughout the United States in 2016 and early 2017 led to Kadar being charged initially in criminal complaints on April 21, 2017 in Florida and Georgia following his arrest in Israel. Kadar remains in custody in Israel where he also faces charges.

The indictment from the Middle District of Florida charges that beginning on or about Jan. 4, 2017, and continuing until Feb. 27, 2017, Kadar made multiple threatening calls involving bomb threats and active shooter threats to numerous Jewish Community Centers throughout Florida. Additionally, the indictment charges Kadar with attempting to obstruct the free exercise of religion at the Jewish Community Centers when he made the bomb threats and active shooter threats. Finally, the indictment charges that Kadar made bomb threats to the Orlando International Airport and a middle school in the Middle District of Florida. Although no actual explosives were found, many of the calls resulted in the temporary closure and evacuation or lockdown of the targeted facilities, and required law enforcement and emergency personnel to respond to and clear the area.

The indictment from the District of Columbia charges that on or about March 7, 2017, Kadar made a threatening call to the Anti-Defamation League involving a bomb threat. Additionally, the indictment alleges that on or about March 9, 2017, Kadar sent a threatening email to the Israeli Embassy involving a bomb threat.

The indictment from the Middle District of Georgia charges that on or about Jan. 3, 2017, Kadar made a phone call to a police department conveying false information about an alleged hostage situation in progress at a private residence in Athens, Georgia, which included a threat to kill responding police officers. Police and emergency personnel responded to the scene, only to learn that there was no emergency.

The hate crime charges each carry a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment, the bomb threats charges each carry a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, and the interstate threats charge, the hoax charge, and the cyberstalking charge each carry a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment. If convicted, Kadar could also be subject to court ordered restitution. […]

This case was investigated by the FBI Tampa Division, FBI Washington Field Office, and FBI Atlanta Division; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida; the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia; U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Georgia; the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; and the Criminal Section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs provided significant assistance in this case. Federal authorities also acknowledge and appreciate the assistance and the investigative efforts of the Israeli National Police.

Meanwhile, here’s an example of a real “hate crime” — by Jews against non-Jews.

On August 18, 2010, a group of rabbis gathered in Israel to defend the publication of Torat Ha’Melech (King’s Torah), a rabbinical guidebook for killing non-Jews, including innocent children.

Writing for AlterNet, Max Blumenthal quotes the book’s author, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira:

Non-Jews are ‘uncompassionate by nature’ and should be killed in order to ‘curb their evil inclinations.’ If we kill a gentile who has violated one of the seven commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder. There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”

Blumenthal describes what happened at the gathering on August 18, 2010:

Before an audience of 250 supporters including the far-right Israeli Knesset member Michael Ben-Ari, the rabbis declared in the name of the Holy Torah they would not submit to any attempt by the government to regulate their political activities — even and especially if those activities included inciting terrorist attacks against non-Jews. As one wizened rabbi after another rose up to inveigh against the government’s investigation of Torat Ha’Melech until his voice grew hoarse, the gathering degenerated into calls for murdering not just non-Jews, but secular Jews as well.

But Pope Francis conceals the cross by stuffing it inside his waist sash, so as not to offend the delicate sensibilities of Israeli rabbis.

As a matter of fact, in December 2015, the pope’s Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews issued a major new document pronouncing that God had never annulled his covenant with the Jewish people, and so Catholics should not try to convert Jews. In so doing, of course, Francis and the Vatican directly contravene what Jesus and St. Paul had said:

“This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my Blood, which will be shed for you.” -Luke 22:20

“In speaking of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete.” -Hebrews 8:13

Francis: The pope who refuses to genuflect at the consecration

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal is the Catholic Church’s instructions governing the celebration of Mass.

N. 274 of the Roman Missal specifies that:

“During Mass three genuflections are made by the priest celebrant: namely, after the showing of host, after the showing of the chalice and before Communion.”

Ann Barnhardt was the first to notice this — that on March 14, 2013, when Jorge Bergoglio said his first Mass as Pope Francis, he did not genuflect in accordance with the Roman Missal‘s instructions.

In the video of that Mass below, the consecration of the host into the Body of Christ happens at the 51:47 mark, and the consecration of the chalice or wine into the Blood of Christ at the 52:32 mark — but Pope Francis did not genuflect.

While the Church makes exemptions for priests whose health makes genuflecting or kneeling difficult or impossible, that is not the case with Pope Francis who often has been seen kneeling.

Indeed, if you do a “google” search for images of Pope Francis kneeling, you’ll find plenty. Here are two:

Pope Francis kneelsPope Francis kneels1

Here’s Pope Francis not genuflecting in another Mass — the Christmas Midnight Mass, December 24, 2016.

The consecration of the host into the Body of Christ begins at the 1:18:57 mark. Note how the Vatican’s camera cuts to a nun dressed in blue in the congregation (11:19:25), to avoid capturing the Pope’s refusal to genuflect.

Then comes the consecration of the wine into the Blood of Christ (1:20:20). Once again, the camera cuts to and lingers on another blue-garbed nun in the congregation (1:20:36 to 1:20:42), instead of showing the Pope not genuflecting.

To this day, an official explanation as to why Pope Francis does not genuflect at the consecration of host and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ has not been offered.

From the Italian-language GloriaTV, February 21, 2018 (Google Translation):

Francis still refuses to kneel before the Eucharistic adoration.

Vatican News (21 February) published photographs of a Eucharistic adoration that took place during the retreat of the Roman Curia in progress in Ariccia, near Rome.

The participants in the retreat knelt before the monstrance, except Francesco.

The rumors that Francis had problems with his knees proved to be false as he knelt on several occasions before the refugees on Holy Thursday or while visiting an Anglican shrine in Uganda in November 2015.

Update (April 20, 2018):

Here’s a video showing how the Vatican PR team uses “creative” camera angles to conceal the fact that Pope Francis refused to kneel before the Body and Blood of Christ our Lord:
