Canon Law violated by the Father Sabino Ardito SDB, Commissar for the Franciscans of the Immaculate

There are three canonists appointed by Pope Francis to oversee the Franciscans of the Immaculate. 
According to Canon Law  the new Salesian Commissioner Fr.Sabino  Ardito SDB is a juridical person and is  expected to affirm all the teachings of the Catholic Church.Otherwise he cannot be appointed a Commissioner or religious Superior.
 1.According to the Nicene Creed there is one baptism for the forgiveness of sin, the baptism of water.
Failed canonically: 
The Commissioner believes  there are three baptisms, water, desire and blood.
He also believes being saved in imperfect communion with the Church (UR 3), seeds of the Word(AG11) etc are 'baptisms' which exclude the baptism of water.
He rejects the Nicene Creed.
This rejection and change of the Nicene Creed is a common practise among the Franciscans, Dominicans, Carmelites etc.

2.Vatican Council II /AG 7, LG 14) says all need faith and baptism for salvation.All includes Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims etc.
Failed canonically: 
According to the Commissioner for the Franciscans of the Immaculate all do not need to convert into the Catholic Church in 2015  with 'faith and baptism'(AG 7,LG 14) to go to Heaven and avoid Hell.Since for the Salesian Commissioner  LG 16,LG 8, UR 3, NA 2 etc  in Vatican Council II  refer to explicit, visible cases. So they are objective  exceptions  to AG 7, LG 14, the dogma EENS  and the Nicene Creed ( I believe in one baptism for the forgiveness of sin).
Vatican Council II (AG 7, LG 14) , the Nicene Creed and the defined dogma EENS ( Cantate Dominio, Council of Florence 1441) are rejected.
LG 16 ( being saved in invincible ignorance), LG 8 ( being saved with elements of sanctification and truth) are hypothetical cases which cannot be known in 2015.
According to Canon Law the Commissar for the Franciscans of the Immaculate needs to affirm the teachings of the Catholic Church but he does not. It can be seen with reference to the two points above.

1. As a lay Catholic I affirm the Nicene Creed.There is only one baptism for me.It is the baptism of water.
I accept being saved with implicit desire, martyrdom or 
invincible ignorance as  theoretical possibilities only and not as concrete known cases in the present times. Also these theoretical, hypothetical cases would be followed with the baptism of water since this is the EENS teaching.
Anyone who considers these cases as explicit is irrational. 
The Americans in Baltimore (1885)considered these cases explicit and objective for us human beings.So their Catechism supports implicit desire and martyrdom as 'baptisms' similar to the baptism of water.So there emerged three baptisms in the Church.
The baptism of desire and blood not being explicit and known to us cannot be an exception to EENS.
2. I affirm Vatican Council II (AG 7,LG 14) in agreement with the dogma EENS.Since for me LG 16,LG 8, UR 3, NA 2 etc are always implicit, invisible and known only to God.So they are not exceptions to AG 7 and LG 14.They are hypothetical cases and so cannot be explicit exceptions to EENS  in 2015. They are not exceptions to all needing to convert into the Catholic Church.They do not contradict the Nicene Creed or the dogma EENS, defined by three Church Councils and which did not mention any exceptions.
The Commissar of the Franciscans of the Immaculate violates Canon Law and rejects fundamental teachings of the Catholic Faith.He will expect the Franciscans of the Immaculate to do the same.
The Commandments tell us not to lie. It is a lie to allege that there are three known baptisms  or that there are known exceptions to the Nicene Creed, the dogma EENS and Vatican Council II (AG 7,Lg 14).
How can the Novus Ordo Mass be offered by canonist-priests, overseeing the Franciscans of the Immaculate,who have changed the Nicene Creed, interpret EENS with exceptions which do  not exist and interpret Vatican Council II as a break with EENS and the Nicene Creed.All this is done by assuming  being saved in invincible ignorance(LG 16 ) etc  refer to explicit , seen in the flesh cases in the present times. It is with this irrationality that the Nicene Creed  is rejected with the three known baptisms instead of one.EENS has exceptions in 2015 and Vatican Council II (AG 7,LG 14)  also has alleged known exceptions i.e all do not need 'faith and baptism' for salvation.-Lionel Andrades

The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate will have to accept this irrationalilty and contemporary heresy, to be able to offer the Traditional Latin Mass.This is how Fr.Ardito offers Holy Mass in Italian

U.S Army kicking out decorated Green Beret who stood up for Afghan rape victim

Army kicking out decorated Green Beret who stood up for Afghan rape victim

MartlandIs there no end to the degradation that the Obama Administration will inflict upon us? Is there no end to what it will do in order to weaken our military and embolden its enemies?
“Army kicking out decorated Green Beret who stood up for Afghan rape victim,” Fox News, August 21, 2015 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
EXCLUSIVE: The U.S. Army is kicking out a decorated Green Beret after an 11-year Special Forces career, after he got in trouble for shoving an Afghan police commander accused of raping a boy and beating up his mother when she reported the incident.
The case of Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland now has the attention of Congress, with Rep. Duncan Hunter writing to Defense Secretary Ash Carter challenging the decision.
“I am once again dismayed by the Army’s actions in this case,” Hunter, R-Calif., wrote in a letter to Carter.
Martland is described by many of his teammates as the finest soldier they have ever served alongside.
But his Army career changed course during his second deployment to Afghanistan in 2011. After learning an Afghan boy was raped and his mother beaten, Martland and his team leader confronted a local police commander they had trained, armed and paid with U.S. taxpayer dollars. When the man laughed off the incident, they physically confronted him.
They were punished by the Army at the time — but why exactly Martland is now being discharged is a matter of dispute. Army sources cited his accolades, including being named runner-up for 2014 Special Warfare Training Group Instructor of the Year from a pool of 400 senior leaders in Special Forces, in questioning the decision.
As for the incident in 2011, Hunter told Carter: “To intervene was a moral decision, and SFC Martland and his Special Forces team felt they had no choice but to respond.”
Casey, a former Green Beret teammate who would only use his first name since he is now a member of a federal counterterrorism team, told Fox News, “If I was a commander, I would have given him an award. They saved that kid’s life.”
Martland grew up south of Boston, in Milton, Mass. An all-state football player in high school, he set his sights on playing college football after graduating in 2001. Martland went for the Florida State University team, which just finished a season ranked #4 in the nation.
He made the team, impressing legendary head coach Bobby Bowdon and famed defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews. Still, he often remained on the sidelines. When Pat Tillman, a former NFL football player who volunteered for the Army Rangers, was killed in Afghanistan in 2004, he saw Tillman’s sacrifice as motivation to apply for another elite program. Martland dropped out of college and graduated in 2006 from Special Forces Qualification Course, one of the U.S. military’s toughest training programs. Over the years he became a jumpmaster, combat diver and sniper.
After a deployment to Iraq in 2008, he deployed to Afghanistan in January 2010 as part of a 12-man unit. He and his team found themselves fighting large numbers of Taliban militants in volatile Kunduz Province.
On one mission, one of their vehicles was struck by an IED, setting off a Taliban ambush. Fox News is told Martland rushed to the scene. He jumped in the turret of a damaged Humvee, exposing himself to enemy bullets while returning fire to help his teammates gather sensitive equipment.
“I thought he was gone, then he comes out of nowhere to save us,” said an active-duty Green Beret who requested anonymity.
Martland was awarded a Bronze Star with Valor for his actions. According to one evaluation, he also was “praised” by Gen. David Petraeus, then commander of U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan.
But very quickly, the Green Berets realized they had a problem with many of the Afghans they were training to become local police officers.
“We had been hearing for months about raping in our province, not just in Afghanistan,” said Daniel Quinn, a West Point graduate and the team leader of the detachment sent to Kunduz.
One day in early September 2011 at their remote outpost, a young Afghan boy and his Afghan-Uzbek mother showed up at camp. The 12-year-old showed the Green Berets where his hands had been tied. A medic took him to a back room for an examination with an interpreter, who told them the boy had been raped by another commander by the name of Abdul Rahman.
After learning of the meeting, Rahman allegedly beat the boy’s mother for reporting the crime. It was at this point, the Green Berets had had enough. Quinn and Martland went to confront Rahman.
“He confessed to the crime and laughed about it, and said it wasn’t a big deal. Even when we patiently explained how serious the charge was, he kept laughing,” Quinn said.
According to reports of the incident, Quinn and Martland shoved Abdul Rahman to the ground. It was the only way to get their point across, according to Quinn. “As a man, as a father of a young boy myself at the time, I felt obliged to step in to prevent further repeat occurrences,” Quinn said.
Rahman walked away bruised from getting shoved and thrown to the ground, but otherwise okay, according to teammates. But Rahman quickly reported the incident to another Army unit in a nearby village. The next day a U.S. Army helicopter landed and took Quinn and Martland away, ending their work in Kunduz Province.
For the next few weeks, both soldiers remained in Afghanistan but were not allowed to continue their mission. They were given temporary jobs in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan and later in Herat. Pending the outcome of the investigation, both men were relieved from their positions and sent home. Their war was over.
Quinn has since left the Army and started a job on Wall Street.
Martland, though, has been fighting to stay in the Army. In February 2015, the Army conducted a “Qualitative Management Program” review board. His supporters suspect because Martland had a “relief for cause” evaluation in his service record, the U.S. Army ordered Martland to be “involuntary discharged” from the Army by Nov. 1, 2015.
The U.S. Army could not confirm the specifics of Martland’s separation from service due to privacy reasons, according to Wayne Hall, an Army spokesman.
Critics point to the Army drawdown as a reason. One former Green Beret said any negative mark on a soldier’s record can get them kicked out, given the drawdown.
Martland still has received the highest scores in evaluations since the incident…

Pakistan's central prison denies Christian prisoners the right to a Mass

Faisalabad’s central prison denies Christian prisoners the right to a Mass
by Shafique Khokhar
Christian activists take the case to court, which dismisses the prison’s argument for cancelling Sunday Masses, i.e. security concerns. For critics, the ban on Masses violates Article 20 of Pakistan’s constitution and Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The lack of religious freedom increases violence in society.

Faisalabad (AsiaNews) – Hashmat Barkat, a Christian lawyer and director of the Peace for Nation International (PNI) non-governmental organisation, spoke to AsiaNewsabout the decision taken by Faisalabad’s central prison (Punjab) to end Sunday Mass for Christian prisoners.
"Restricting the right of Christian prisoners to profess freely their own religious faith is a clear violation of Article 20 of the Constitution of Pakistan,” he said.
The latter states that “(a) every citizen shall have the right to profess, practise and propagate his religion; and (b) every religious denomination and every sect thereof shall have the right to establish, maintain and manage its religious institutions.’”
He is not alone in his opposition to the prison’s decision. Indeed, some rights organisations filed a case with the Sessions Court of Faisalabad, demanding that prisons respect the principle of freedom of religion guaranteed by the country’s fundamental charter.
This prison’s decision comes as conditions in penitentiaries become more repressive after the end of a moratorium on the death penalty following a Taliban attack on a military school in Peshawar in December 2014.
The Faisalabad prison superintendent justified the decision citing security concerns and drug smuggling among prisoners. The Sessions judge however rejected his argument.
In view of the situation, prison authorities said they would allow the church service if it is officially authorised by the Inspector General (I.G.) of Prisons or the Home Secretary.
The judge thus directed the parties to approach the two offices for a decision in the matter. As of today, the case is still pending.
For Suneel Malik, an activist and director of the Peace and Human Development (PHD) Foundation, "Pakistan has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of the United Nations.* Therefore, it is under the obligation to protect the religious freedom of its citizens since Article 18 of the Covenant provides that' Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.’”
Malik added that Pakistan is also a party to the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) since 2013, which guarantees tax exemptions in trade if the country respects its conventions and recommendations. These include the obligation to respect freedom of worship without restrictions or discrimination.
"The PHD Foundation sent a series of letters to Punjab authorities but we have not received any answer. This situation is distressing,” he said.
Fr Khalid Rashid Asi shares that view. "Religious freedom is frequently violated and discrimination based on faith prevents individuals from fully enjoying their human rights,” he explained.
“When the government denies freedom of worship, the most obvious consequence is more complaints from the groups that suffer limitations. The lack of religious freedom can also result in social, economic and residential conditions that contribute to higher levels of violence."
"The government has to foster a climate of tolerance and respect for minorities and ensure the protection of minority rights through the law. The government must allow Christian prisoners to celebrate their Mass," he said.
Lastly, "This example of freedom denied to Christian prisoners increases the sense of fear, deprivation, pessimism, and insecurity among minorities, particularly Christians,” said Hashmat Barkat. Hence, “I will fight for the rights of Christian prisoners in Faisalabad’s central prison until justice is done."
