Francis’ resignation and his false prophet Schneider

June 22, 2019

Auxiliary Bishop Schneider wrote a treatise on March 20, 2019, entitled “On the question of a heretical pope”. It is based on the absurd assumption that a heretical pope can in no case be deprived of his office. Moreover, he claims that even if a pope committed the gravest heresies or monstrous moral crimes, he must – in his view – remain in office. This Schneider’s view is against Holy Scripture, Gal 1:8-9, against the Bull of Paul IV as well as against the words of many saints. To confirm his theory, he uses a manipulative comparison.

Quote by Schneider: “One can disinherit children of a family. Yet one cannot disinherit the father of a family, however guilty or monstrously he behaves himself… The same is applicable to the pope…”

Response: This comparison is demagogic and manipulative. It aims to confirm that the current monstrous behavior of the Pope is to be accepted by Catholics as a norm. They should be convinced that he must remain the Pope, even if, being a heretic with the spirit of antichrist, he will mass-destroy the Church. Schneider has become an apologist for the destroyers of the Church.

Quote by Schneider: “In the case of a criminal or monstrous father … (the children) cannot say, ‘We will elect a new and good father of our family.’”

Response: The earthly father gives the child a physical life. Spiritually, God is our Father. The pope merely represents God, if he defends the Gospel and is in unity with His Spirit. If a pope is a heretic, like Francis, he is ipso facto under God’s anathema according to Gal 1:8. From then on, he represents another father, the devil. The words of Jesus apply to Francis and those who are in unity with him: “Your father is the devil who is a liar and a murderer.” (Jn 8)

Quote by Schneider: “There could be a truly extravagant situation of a pope who practices sexual abuse of minors or subordinates in the Vatican. What should the Church do in such a situation? Should the Church tolerate a Papal sexual predator of minors or subordinates? For how long should the Church tolerate such a pope? Should he lose the papacy ipso facto because of sexual abuse of minors or subordinates?”

Response: Everyone is horrified and calls for the immediate deposition of such a mass criminal and a spiritual murderer. Schneider, however, zigzags toward the conclusion that not even such a perverted pope can be deposed. This is contrary to Scripture, to the Bull and to the Tradition of the Church.

St. Basil says about people like Schneider: “The defender of sin must be punished more than its perpetrator.” Why? Because he normalizes sin and crime.

Quote by Schneider: “The pope gets his authority directly from God and not from the Church; therefore, the Church cannot depose him, for any reason whatsoever.”

Response: A heretical pope is anathematized by God Himself; therefore, the Church obedient to God must depose him.

Quote by Schneider: “If a pope spreads doctrinal errors or heresies, the Divine structure of the Church already provides an antidote…”

Response: The antidote today is Archbp. C. M. Viganò and those who are in unity with him in the pursuit of true restoration of the Church. Schneider, however, tries to paralyze this very antidote with his manipulative theories and religious phrases.

Quote by Schneider: “Even if a pope (today Francis) is spreading theological errors and heresies, the Faith of the Church as a whole will remain intact…”

Response: Today, the reality is mass apostasy from the Church. The faith will remain intact only with those who will separate from the heretic and preserve orthodox doctrine. Those who submit to false authority will lose the saving faith and participate in the curse – anathema – which the heretical Pope has brought on himself.

Quote by Schneider: “The opinion, which says that a heretical pope ipso facto loses his office, became a common opinion starting with the High Middle Ages until the twentieth century. …no Ecumenical Council and no pope has supported such an opinion explicitly.”

Response: Schneider lies because Pope Paul IV writes in his Bull, “Those (heretical prelates or a heretical pope) shall be deprived ipso facto (automatically), and without need for any further declaration, of all dignity, position, honor, title, authority, office and power.”

This declaration of the Bull is in full accord with the Word of God (Gal 1:8-9): “If anyone, even an angel from heaven, preaches any other gospel, let him be accursed – anathema sit.”

The Bull of Paul IV also states: “If ever at any time it shall appear that any Bishop, … or any Cardinal of the Roman Church, or even the Roman Pontiff, prior to his promotion or his elevation as Cardinal or Roman Pontiff, has deviated from the Catholic Faith or fallen into some heresy: the promotion or elevation, even if it shall have been uncontested and by the unanimous assent of all the Cardinals, shall be null, void and worthless…”

At the end of his Bull, Paul IV declares: No one at all, therefore, may infringe this document of our approbation or by rash presumption contradict it. If anyone, however, should presume to attempt this, let him know that he is destined to incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles, Peter and Paul.” (February 15, 1559)

Quote by Schneider: “Formal schism … will be an inevitable consequence of a deposition of a pope.”

Response: If, in this extraordinary situation, a new pope is chosen by only a few bishops, and the heretic Francis will not resign, the blame for schism falls on Francis and on the heretical stream which is in unity with him. In fact, it will be no schism but an external separation and a purge of heretics who refuse to repent and have already excluded themselves from the Mystical Body of Christ by heresies. Their so-called Church will not be the Church of Christ but it will be the New Age Church with the spirit of antichrist.

Quote by Schneider: The extremely rare case of a heretical or of a semi-heretical pope must ultimately be endured and suffered in the light of the faith in the Divine character and in the indestructibility of the Church and of the Petrine office.

Response: The heretical Pope Francis is hyperactive in promoting heresies in the Church. Unless we effectively press for his immediate resignation, the infection will affect the whole organism and then the treatment will be ineffective. To appeal hypocritically to the Divine character of the Church, and thus to deceive the public with the aim of keeping a heretic in office, is a crime of manipulation and a sin against the Holy Spirit.

Quote by Schneider: The attempt to depose a heretical pope at any cost is a sign of all too human behavior, which ultimately reflects an unwillingness to bear the temporal cross of a heretical pope.

Response: The attempt to depose a heretical pope is the primary duty of every bishop. It is a sign of true faith, obedience to God’s Word (Gal 1:8-9) and to the Magisterium (the Dogmatic Bull Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio). The believers are also obliged to exert effective pressure to depose a heretic.

The heretic and his followers will persecute them for the fulfillment of this will of God. Such persecution is a true cross which is already being borne by Archbp. C. M. Viganò and by those who are in unity with him. Schneider, however, avoids the true cross and urges people to bear a false cross, namely, to protect the heretical Pope in office.

Schneider has a special method of winning the sympathy and trust of the orthodox Catholic believers to prevent any attempt to depose a heretic. He first calls things by their proper names and even persuasively expresses the truth. Thus he wins the trust of the heretic’s opponents and then instills in them a false attitude: a heretic must not be deposed!

An example of Schneider’s assertive expression of truth: “… admitting sexually active adulterers to Holy Communion … signifies a denial in practice of the Divine truth of the absolute indissolubility of a valid and consummated sacramental marriage…”

Another example from the doctrinal field: “… the approval of Pope Francis of the phrase in the Interreligious document of Abu Dhabi of February 4, 2019, which states that the diversity of the sexes together with the diversity of races and the diversity of religions corresponds to the wise will of God… evidently contradicts the First Commandment of the Decalogue and the unmistakable and explicit teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ, hence contradicting Divine Revelation.”

Response: This indeed is a prophetic word in the given situation and a thorough conviction of heresy. But what purpose does Schneider have in view as a false prophet? Always the same false conclusion: a heretical pope can by no means be deprived of office!

It is as if a physician makes a true diagnosis and can save the patient, but he draws the following conclusion instead: the operation must not be performed! The consequence? The patient will die! This is the fruit of the false prophet Schneider!
