Response to Card. Müller’s “Manifesto of Faith”

11 February 2019

Your Eminence,

in Your Manifesto You have quoted the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC). The Catechism forbids the Eucharist to the divorced and remarried (1457). It does not allow the ordination of women (1577). If anyone refuses to repent until death, he will be eternally condemned (1035)…

A sincere Catholic must agree with Your Manifesto and Your quotes from the Catechism which has been used in the Church since 1992. The reality, however, is that all Catholic schools teach the heresies of syncretism with paganism and the modernism of the historical-critical method based on atheistic philosophy. A certain professor at the Lateran University in Rome said: “The Catechism does not bind me; Vatican II is my standard.” But Vatican II opened the door to the heresies of neo-modernism and syncretism. According to the Romans 1:25f, the fruit then is a homosexual network in the Church. This network refers to the Catechism, which already has the homosexual slogan of antidiscrimination, homophobia and anti-discrimination laws encoded in it. This heretical position of the Catechism contradicts both the Word of God and Tradition. Quote from the Catechism 2358: “Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided…” and: “They (homosexuals or sodomites) must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity…”. The next quote (2359): “By the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer … they (sodomites) should approach Christian perfection.”

However, this “friendship”, “respect”, “compassion”, “sensitivity”, antidiscrimination dispose one to receive this unclean spirit! Preventing infection requires adequate means. The Catechism here does quite the opposite. Now, after 26 years, we are reaping the fruits of its ambiguous terms in the Church.

Your Eminence, a radical step towards rectification has been proposed by Archbp. C. M. Viganò, who speaks of the necessity of the restoration of the Church, specifically by the elimination of a homosexual network in the Church and by the abdication of Francis. You did not provide moral support to C. M. Viganò in this stance. The believers ask You: If You were Pope, would You stagnate at the evasive quotes from the Catechism? Are You willing to condemn heresies and the spirit of Vatican II and thus to begin a true reform of the Church?

“For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.”
