The Rhine Flows Into the Amazon - The pope’s silly synod is an attempt by German heretics to turn the Church into an annex of the UN.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller
Spectator : Pope Francis spent a brief period of
his Jesuit formation in Germany.
He was sent there to get a doctorate in
theology, but, finding the work tedious and feeling homesick, he
returned to Buenos Aires. He once told a fellow Jesuit that studying
“fundamental theology” is “boring” — a bizarre attitude for a churchman
that explains his intellectually slipshod pronouncements.
Not that Francis doesn’t revere German theologians. He does,
exceedingly so, particularly heretical ones. During the conclave that
elected him, he stayed in a room across from Walter Kasper, the German
cardinal famous for his project to liberalize and Protestantize the
Church from top to bottom. Jorge Bergoglio said Kasper handed him his
book on mercy — an absurdly heretical tract about how the Church needs
to adopt the world’s version of morality on LGBT issues and the like.
Bergoglio said Kasper’s book provided him with some delightful reading
before he fell asleep. Shortly after he became pope, he singled out
Kasper as one of his “favorite” theologians.
Francis is also close with Cardinal Cláudio Hummes of Brazil, who is the chief organizer of the Pan-Amazon Synod.
Hummes, an outspoken socialist and opponent of traditional teaching, is
the son of a German-Brazilian father and a German mother. He is one of
the architects of the Latin American–German alliance to revolutionize
the Church — what Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former head of the
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, calls the “wrecking ball”
the synod will release upon the faithful, as reported by LifeSiteNews.
That’s no exaggeration. Look at all the new bishops and cardinals,
preening at the synod under the pope’s supportive gaze, who now say
openly that they favor LGBT rights, divorce and remarriage, female
deacons, even female priests — the same cardinals who shrugged at the
news this week that nuns are hearing confessions and presiding at
weddings in South America, the same cardinals who consider it a mere
trifle that the pope would tell his Boswell, the doddering Eugenio
Scalfari, that Jesus was just an “exceptional” man. (The Vatican still
hasn’t issued a convincing clarification about that astounding part of
the Scalfari interview.)
