Catholic website calls anyone who questions military intervention to oust Pope Francis ‘out of line’

Three days ago on January 25, I published a post on a poll on a traditional Catholic website, From Rome, on whether there should be a military intervention at the Vatican to oust Pope Francis (real name Jorge Bergoglio) and restore 92-year-old Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to the papacy.

From Rome‘s editor is a Franciscan monk, Br. Alexis Bugnolo.

I explained that the poll was prompted by frustration about Pope Francis and the conviction that Benedict XVI had not “really” resigned as pope, but only from the active ministry as pope — which, of course, is exactly what the title “Pope Emeritus” means, just as the title “Professor Emeritus” refers to a professor who has retired from teaching at his/her university (“emeritus”), but nevertheless retains the title “professor”.

About the poll, a From Rome reader StMA posted this comment:

Which military does From Rome imagine would “intervene” at the Vatican to oust fake pope Bergoglio? If the Church’s clergy — from cardinals to priests — would do their job, no military intervention would be needed.

To which From Rome responded defensively and disingenuously:

“We do not imagine anything. We are just taking a poll.”

Today, From Rome published the final results of the poll, crowing that “Catholics overwhelmingly support military intervention at the Vatican”.

From the post:

The Poll Results are in, and they speak for themselves:

The same reader posted a comment about the results of the poll:

Once again, I must ask this blog and its 159 readers who voted “Yes” in this poll:

Which country/government do you imagine would risk the lives of their soldiers to launch a military intervention against the Vatican, a sovereign state, when this is a matter solely for the Catholic Church to resolve?

From Rome responded by calling the commenter “out of line”:

The Catholic Faithful have appealed to Kings and princes hundreds of times throughout the Centuries to clean up the Church by means of military intervention, whether or at Rome or elsewhere. It is their God given right to appeal to Christ the King, either through their superiors in the Church or through their superiors in the Temporal Powers, since Christ is Lord of them both. So you [sic] comment is way out of line. — As for risking the lives of their soldiers, you got to be kidding…

The dictionary defines “out of line” as:

Not in agreement or accordance with generally accepted or established limits.

Contrary to or in violation of acceptable rules, conventions, or standards; improper or inappropriate.

One wonders what rule, convention, or standard reader StMA had violated?

Also, by asserting “The Catholic Faithful have appealed to Kings and princes hundreds of times throughout the Centuries to clean up the Church by means of military intervention, whether or at Rome or elsewhere” in its dismissive and abusive response to the reader, From Rome‘s editor in effect belies his previous disingenuous denial that he was not advocating a military intervention but “just taking a poll.”

Frankly, From Rome‘s speech and behavior do no credit to the cause of traditional Catholics who are, with good reasons, unhappy with Pope Francis.

I now repeat what I had written in the January 25 post:

As an American, I do not want a U.S. military intervention at the Vatican for any reason. And if the U.S. were to intervene and oust Jorge Bergoglio from the papacy, then what? Should the U.S. military occupy Vatican City until Benedict XVI is restored to St. Peter’s? Benedict is 92 years old and frail. Should the U.S. military then force a papal conclave to elect a new pope? And if another Bergoglio is elected, then what?

The Catholic Church’s cardinals created this mess. The Catholic Church, and no one else, should resolve their own problems.

Benedict resigned the ministry, not the office of pope. Despite his insistence that he did not resign under duress etc., Benedict has strangely never said that he did in fact intend to resign the office, even though he surely knows that doing so could help clarify the matter.
Why won’t Benedict say he intended to resign the office?
It would seem because he didn’t intend to do so.

If The Church will not expel him then ousting him will not save it. When you become Pope you are Pope until you die. The True Pope must return and accept his whippings before The Church can be redeemed. And time is running out.

159 people hardly represents a consensus among Catholics. Catholics should begin to ignore any and all Papal decrees issuing from Frankenpope; they have no legitimacy and he has no legitimacy, any more than did the Popes of Luther’s time. Catholics should demand a new reformation, insisting that God’s truth is to be found in scripture, not dispensed from the Vatican. But military intervention? That strikes me as around the bend

Military intervention? Rome and the Papacy are not a government form, it is a clergy running a church, there’s not an armed revolt overthrowing a government but a bunch of corrupt leaders pushing for a reform to one of the oldest worldwide religious institutions established in a modern world, it is a power struggle between them and us, The Church. Slowly and surely many changes have been occurring for the last fifty years and we have been bowing and accepting these changes, all done to conform to the modern times. Come as you are, you don’t need to cover your… Read more »

Believe me, I am all in favor of seeing the anti-pope removed, even forcibly, if need be. The question is, who does it, what would be the rationale and justification, and how to do it without it being an act of war? Whatever intelligence agency would assess the current situation would have to, in all honesty, have to trace the history of Church politics and history since the election of Roncalli in 1958. For the truth is, Holy Mother Church was infiltrated and taken over by Masonic forces. (Roncalli and Wojtiya were Masons). So who would do it and risk… Read more »

IMHO this pope is a demon possessed heretic, how any practicing Catholic can follow his teachings in mind boggling.
He spends far more time pushing his radical politics than he does the gospel.
When he does take the time to speak to religious teachings he is always looking for ways to rewrite prayers and past teaching.
He has praised the Muslim religion at the same time they are murdering Christians
I believe he has a special place in hell reserved for himself

The Order of the Jesuits, the dominants of the Church are in control, have been and always will be, till then I oppose anything and all their PRONOUNCEMENTS that go against I was taught. Pope Frankstein is a staunch Jesuit hiding under the cassock and whipping his scepter. I defend my Church against the evil within.

Perhaps a coup by the palace guards?

Socialist dogma and Christianity are completely incompatible…as is Islam.

To Arms!

Very well put, whose military do they think is going to be put in harm’s way to accomplish this. The only solution I can imagine is — withhold monies from the church, although that may not be popular with some.
