Traditional Catholic website wants military intervention to oust Pope Francis

On February 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI shocked the world when he resigned as “Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter”. In a brief statement in Latin announcing his resignation, he cited his deteriorating strength and the physical and mental demands of the papacy, but declared that he would continue to serve the church “through a life dedicated to prayer”. In so doing, he became the first pope in 600 years to retire rather than die in office

After two weeks of ceremonial farewells, the Pope left office at the appointed time. A month later, on March 13, 2013, the papal conclave elected an Argentinian cardinal, Jorge Bergoglio, to be pope. Meanwhile, in retirement Benedict retained his papal name rather than revert to his birth name, Joseph Ratizinger. And so the Catholic Church found itself in the unprecedented situation of having two popes: Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. 

Ever since his resignation, there are persistent whispers that Benedict’s resignation had been coerced and that he is imprisoned “in a certain sort of way,”  with fingers pointing to a shadowy cabal of high-ranking leftist homosexual clerics dubbed the St. Gallen Mafia.

See also “The Illegitimate Pope: Election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis was contaminated by lobbying in violation of papal laws

But on the eve of the first anniversary of his resignation, in a letter to a Vatican correspondent of La Stampa newspaper, Benedict denied he had been forced to step down:

“There isn’t the slightest doubt about the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry. The only condition for the validity is the full freedom of the decision. Speculation about its invalidity is simply absurd.”

About the video: Pope Francis angrily slaps hand of woman who said ‘Help me!’

Notwithstanding Benedict’s denial, Catholics unhappy with Pope Francis continue to insist that Benedict XVI had been coerced to resign. Some say that in his statement of resignation, Benedict never said he was resigning from the papacy, but merely that he was resigning from the ministry, that is, the active exercise of being a pope.

Note: But doesn’t the title “Pope Emeritus” mean precisely that? — that Benedict retains the title of “Pope” but is retired and no longer active as pope, thus “Emeritus”. Just as the title “Professor Emeritus” refers to a professor who has retired from his/her university (emeritus), but nevertheless retains the title “professor”.

Increasingly frustrated by Pope Francis’ speech and behavior, some traditional Catholics are becoming unglued, notably the traditional Catholic website From Rome.

On January 18, 2020, From Rome initiated a WhiteHouse.gov petition asking President Trump issue a tweet that he’s “concerned” about Pope Benedict XVI:

“I am concerned for the welfare of all the elderly and that they not be abused or manipulated, including Pope Benedict XVI. I urge all to take effective steps for their care!”

The petition requires 100,000 signatures for the White House to act. A week after the petition was begun, only 579 people have signed.

From Rome‘s latest act of desperation is a poll on whether there should be a military intervention at the Vatican.

On January 19, 2020, a day after the petition to the White House, From Rome published a poll asking its readers if an armed intervention is needed to restore Benedict XVI as pope:

In view of the Massive public interest in the welfare of Pope Benedict, the growing and soon to explode public consensus that He is still the true and only Pope and that Bergoglio is an uncanonical anomaly, From Rome wants to take the pulse of Christendom with a poll asking a very very impolitic question. Please share this on all social media, so we can get the best response:

As of this morning, here are the poll results:

A reader commented:

“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.”

After which, the website posted this disclaimer:

Disclaimer: The taking of this poll in no way implies any action, support or condoning of private military or armed action against the Vatican City State or anyone in its territories. It is merely a journalistic appeal to know what people are thinking and how strongly they feel it. Whether the USA or an Italian government in the future might take this action or not, is neither foreseen nor solicited by FromRome.info

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.

None of these clowns have to RESIGN, since they were never validly ELECTED in the first place. READ IT AND WEEP. THERE ARE THINGS YOU DON’T KNOW! The papal conclave was invalidated by B’nai Brith, who had taken over the Vatican, and still have offices there. It was B’nai Brith who FORCED the resignation of Pope Gregory XVII (Cardinal Guiseppe Siri), who was then sent into forced exile in France,in October 1958, and threatened his life and that of his family, if he ever spoke of it or ever tried to reclaim the papal throne. True to their word, B’nai… Read more »

OUST HIM!!! HE IS AN IMPOSTOR! I’ve maintained from the very beginning that Pope Frankie is evil, the need to remove him from the Holy See is imminent, he is not PETER and never will be, he is the worldwide NWO ambassador to bring about the Anti-Christ, PROMOTER OF EVIL, sacrilegious, he’s been paving the way to have the CHURCH, US, sway from our catholic roots. Frankie is the personification of Satan, he is evil. He will not prevail in his wishes. Let’s restore our Catholic Church.

Crappy article. Shame. No traditional catholic would imagine military intervention against Pope Francis. The site is either a joke, or some kind of whack psyop garbage.

Lots of Catholics are unhappy with Pope Francis, but few imagine removing him in any way whatsoever. Traditional Catholics are generally educated enough to know that this is a very sticky situation, as much as they’d like him gone.

All you’ve done is thrown red meat to the sedevacantist crowd. Good Job.

If you are not a sede vacantist, you do not understand the problem. Vatican II was a Masonic Coup. Every pope since John XXIII was a Freemason, which entails automatic excommunication.
The matter is spiritual and best handled by prayer. This has long been prophesied.

Yes, John XXIII was a freemason. He was never a catholic, so no need to be excommunicated. So, too, all the following fake popes. All 6 of them. Present clown included.

Yes, traditional catholics would advocate military intervention to get this fake pope out of the Vatican. And the sooner the better.

Myself, being an advocate of free speech, I would never stand in the way of people leaving their opinion or just saying what it is they want to say. Even the people I don’t agree with. There is something I would like you to think about when you have some free time. The article is just a review and generalization based on factual, provable evidence.

Forgive me for my rudeness. I scanned DP’s comment, and it showed that he did not read mine with any attention. I referred to the From Rome site as a psyop garbage, not FOTM. And it is a pretty common tactic to state one’s support for free speech, then criticize a speaker because one does not agree with the speaker. I view it as a type of virtue signalling. Arguing at that level is a waste of time. Any site that is supporting military intervention against a pope is ridiculous, as you yourself pointed out. My issue was with the… Read more »

I’m not asking you to justify your posts. But you did nothing to attempt to disclaim the “trad” label from the crazies at From Rome. You reinforced it. You deleted my reply to your comment, just like WordPress deleted your blog. Because neither of you want to hear different opinions. That is a pretty poor indicator of how you operate. Thanks Dr. Eowyn. I’ve enjoyed your blog over the years, and even have commented from time to time. But now that I disagree with you things have changed wildly, haven’t they?

Rome is a kingdom within itself. The Vatican is a government on its own, they need no outside intervention less military; within their walls they have the dominant Jesuits whom determine what is to happen to the future of Rome, and the power to remove whoever is impeding the move forward. But, within those walls they too have militants, the power struggle has been ongoing from the very beginnings of the Church, remember? popes murdering popes for power. The anti-Christ is waiting in earnest, meanwhile is business as usual and Frankie’s future is pending. We shall see more changes coming.

From my reading of Ann Barnhart, it is clear to me that Benedict’s resignation was coerced and hence, invalid “by the law itself.” I am reminded of his plea at the beginning of his Pontificate, “Pray that I not flee for fear of the wolves.” Frankenpope, as I refer to him, IS NOT AND HAS NEVER BEEN THE POPE. He is an anti-pope, and, by that fact, occupies not an office but a criminal status. And from my reading, the man Bergoglio is a real criminal: He was credibly implicated in the deaths of four Argentinian nuns in 1978. He… Read more »

The Bible clearly states in the Revelation “No coward can enter the kingdom of Heaven” Jesus has said “you must pick up the cross if you wish to follow me. He has clearly proved himself to be a coward. Jesus also said. many will come on the basis of my name saying Did we not prophesy in your name and perform many powerful works in your name and expel demons in your name, yet then I will confess, I never knew you get away from me you workers of lawlessness. The Roman Catholic church has proved itself to be a… Read more »

There is something in all this discussion that misses the point of what really is going on in Vatican City. This is not a military, political, or factional war; it is a spiritual war. Catholics comprise 50 percent of all Christians word wide. And Christians in general comprise 16 percent of the world’s total population. Yes, there are real and significant issues with the current pope. There are puzzling questions about the prior pope. These things are not in dispute. But what is the response of Christians to these things? Christians, true Christians , those who truly believe in and… Read more »

Pope Francis should have been ousted a long time ago. He is a heretic. I was born and raised Catholic and had ten years of Catholic studies (Now a born again Christian) and almost everything coming out of this man’s mouth is blasphemy.

I suspect he is a Communist and either a Atheist or satanist.

One wonders if he indeed isn’t to antichrist what John the Baptist was to Jesus.

A military attack on the Vatican? Just imagine what kind of precedent that would set. We could find open warfare erupting again like happened between the Catholics and the Lutherans.

I certainly agree, this is up to those in the Catholic hierarchy to correct this mess. It is entirely inappropriate for anyone else to intervene.

I completely agree with Dr. Eowyn. This isn’t something any government can do, under these circumstances.

I heard that they were going to subpoena Benedict and get info about the Canadian Holocaust of indigenous children in Canada that the Catholic Church as well as the RCMP, Protestant Church and the Canadian government knew about.

I am not a Catholic, tho’ some members of my family, even my husband, were raised Catholic in their day. I was raised in PA in a Protestant jumble of 1700’s exiles from Europe that included Amish, Mennonite, Quaker, Lutheran, German Reformed, Dutch Reformed, finally branched out into mostly Brethren and Methodist (who later united) after breaking their vows of non-violence to fight in the Civil War for Union, and Emancipation of the slaves. IMHO, People of (any) faith , like my recent ancestors, should speak out against policies or utterances or practices spoken-for by their religious leaders if and… Read more »
