The Catholic president signed the Cirinnà bill into law

ROME ( - On Friday, Sergio Matarella, president of the Italian Republic,signed the gay civil unions bill, giving legal recognition to same-sex couples for the first time in Italy's history. The Cirinnà bill, named after it sponsor Sen. Monica Cirinnà, grants gay couples certain rights similar to married couples, short of allowing them to adopt children.
Even though it seemed quite unlikely, the opposition had counted on the hope that the president would veto the Cirinnà bill owing to its unconstitutional flaws, and that it would return to the Chambers for further deliberation. Mario Adinolfi, distinguishable figure from Catholic committee Difendiamo i nostri figli ("Let's Defend Our Children") and now a candidate in Rome's mayoral elections through his own party, People for the Familyhad made a heartfelt appeal to the Catholic president: 
We pledge with our president to act as wisely as King Baudouin of Belgium, who chose to abdicate his throne in 1990 because of his refusal to sign a law that would contradict his principles, the law approving abortion in his country. Mattarella is an eminent jurist who has also been a member of the Constitutional Court, and, above all, he's a Catholic. He cannot allow himself a superficial reading of this law.
President Sergio Mattarella is just another one among so many progressive Catholics in Italian politics who have supported the gay unions bill even though Catholics themselves made clear where they stood. A close friend to several bishops and cardinals, his house frequently received the visits of Cdl. Giovanni Battista Montini (later Pope Paul VI) when he was a boy.

Even though Mattarella is extremely well connected with Church hierarchy, Catholic newspapers were not reluctant to expose their diffidence when he was elected president in February 2015. La Bussola Quotidianaeven before the Parliament announced the name of whom they had elected, published an article asking for a non-Catholic president "because we live in a time where 'Catholic' is not an indicator of anything, especially for Catholics."
In a piece called "Mattarella in Presidency, to Finish off Catholics," the Italian paper Corrispondenza Romana analyzed Mattarella's political history as a typical left-wing "Democratic Catholic": 
The goal of all trends of the Catholic Left was to operate its own extinction and lose any Catholic connotation in order to fully accept the complete secularism of politics, where everything is simple mediation. Mattarella belongs to this history and this culture, and it is quite significant that he emerges to the maximum levels when his history and his culture are considered dead, so diluted they are in today's general secularism.
Already predicting what would come, the article expressed displeasure with the fact that many immoral bills moving through the senate — the Cirinnà bill included — would be approved with the signature of a Catholic president. 
The Chamber of Deputies had approved the Cirinnà bill in early May by an overwhelming margin of 372–51, with 99 abstentions. The vote was harshly criticized for making use of the "vote of trust," an instrument of Italian democracy in which the parliament agrees to vote for a law without discussing its details, accepting the text as originally presented, rubberstamping the measure. It's a motion commonly applied to save time or, more likely in this case, to circumvent obstructions from the opposition.
The "vote of trust" was approved in the afternoon (369–193), and by evening the Chamber had approved the Cirinnà bill. The bill had been discussed when voted by the senate, and a few modifications (like the removal of the clause that granted adoption rights to homosexual couples) were made during negotiations with the opposition, but these amendments were only made to manoeuver center-right politicians, as the real concerns of the Italian people were never addressed.
Massimo Gandolfini, president of Let's Defend Our Childrenstated that Prime Minister Matteo Renzi "needs to be stopped before Italy becomes his monarchy. He's not a Prime Minister for Italians, he represents a small lobby, and his government is the most antidemocratic in the history of the Italian Republic. He writes laws with his allies during the night and have them voted in the morning."
On the Cirinnà bill and the "vote of trust," Gandolfini declared:
This is an anti-constitutional law that has never been submitted to real democratic opposition. ... Today [there was] a vote of trust in the Chamber and no discussions on such a delicate matter, something that alters the ontological status of the family in Italy — a real act of political arrogance and incivility against democracy. ... This law is a simulacrum of matrimony. 
Immediately after the Chamber of Deputies vote, all the members of the Democratic Party went to celebrate in front of the iconic Trevi Fountain, illuminated with rainbow colors in celebration of the gay agenda. The same fountain would be illuminated red in April to pay homage to the blood of Christian martyrs shed around the world.
Prime Minister Renzi, when asked about the reaction from the Catholic world, replied: "The negative response from the Church was largely expected. I am a Catholic, but I have sworn on the Constitution, not on the Gospel. If one should lose votes in the name of a fair battle, so be it."
He also revealed his government has no intention of giving up on a law that allows homosexual couples to adopt. "If I could have crafted a law approving adoption [for homosexuals] in this legislature, I would have done it. We'll try to get this done by 2018." 
The political opposition is reacting to the vote. Matteo Salvini, leader of the Northern League, called all mayors from his party to civil disobedience, and on the following day representatives of the main center-right parties summoned a press meeting to declare they are going to request a popular referendum to stop the law from taking effect — to which Sen. Cirinnà responded, "We'll warmly welcome that. It'll only push us closer to same-sex marriage. Italy will turn its back on conservatism, bigotism, and the Middle Ages."
The senator exulted over the president's decision Friday. "Mattarella's signing of the civil unions law means a historic turning point for civil rights in Italy." She observed that in order to proceed with the celebration of gay unions, state officials need to wait for a decree issued by the Council of Ministers "which I am sure they will provide very quickly," she predicted, "writing one of the most beautiful pages in the history of rights in Italy.

When Pope Benedict 'breaks his silence' it usually is to please the Masons?

When Pope Benedict 'breaks his silence' it seems as if he has to say something to please the Masons, liberals and disssenters.He does not 'break his silence' to affirm traditional teachings of the Church. He did not 'break his silence' to say that Amoris Laetitia contradicts Veritatis Splendor of Pope John Paul II which he approved as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
He has said that the Message of Fatima was complete (May21,2016) even though the magisterium officially recognises that Our Lady said that 'the dogma of the faith will be lost' ( in future) 'except in Portugal'.This indicates that there will be an apostasy in the Church and the apostasy will extend to even the pope.
Then a few months back he said that the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus (EENS) is no more like it was in the 16th century. In other words it has been changed.He means that when he assumes hypothetical cases mentioned in Vatican Council II,are objectively known in 2016 , the dogma EENS can be changed.The dogma EENS would have 'practical exceptions'. He calls this change 'a development'.
When he breaks his silence he is politically correct with the Left, who represent Satan.In both cases here, extra ecclesiam nulla salus and Fatima, there  seems something wrong or there is a false hood.
Our Lady said the dogma of the faith will be lost. We know the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus has been lost. Pope Benedict in the Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to extra ecclesiam nulla salus as an aphorism (846) even though it is a dogma defined by three Church Councils.Now Pope Benedict officially and in public 'breaks his silence' to tell us that the dogma has been lost as it was known over the centuries.It has also been lost by assuming what is invisible is visible and mixing up what is implicit as being explicit.This is the irrational reasoning used to get rid of the dogma and this is a dogma  which is at the centre of the Church's de fide teachings on other religions, ecumenism, religious liberty, liturgy etc.
Then the first part of the Fatima message  indicates that since the dogma of the faith will be lost there will a world wide apostasy which will be approved by the pope.How could the dogma of the faith, or an aspect of the faith be lost, if the pope does not allow it ? It is because the pope will permit the dogma of the faith ,or some aspect of the faith to be lost, that it will be lost in the Church.This deduction has to be made since the message seems  missing in the Fatima message made public.It was incomplete.
So the message of Fatima which we have been given by a pope who says Jews do not need to convert in the present times,contradiciting Jesus,  is incomplete.This is obvious through simple deduction.
This incompleteness of the Fatima message approved by the Vatican is made clear by Our Lady in her messages ( locutions) to Fr. Stefano Gobbi of the Marian Movement of Priests. She speaks to Fr. Gobbi extensively and in great detail about the Fatima message and the condition of the Church in general.At Fatima she was terse as compared to the messages to Fr. Gobbi in which she was elaborate.
She also tells Fr.Gobbi that the Masons and all the enemies of the church will unite and the Church will be attacked from within with error and there will be an apostasy.In the end her Immaculate Heart will Triumph.
So when Pope Benedict 'breaks his silence', it usually is to make a statement which will please the enemies of the Church and create confusion.

Instead he could have announced that the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus has not developed since there are no known exceptions in Vatican Council II to the dogma. He did not say this. If he did there would be an uproar from the Jewish Left.

He did not say that apostasy and heresy has entered the Church and so the dogma of the faith, extra ecclesiam nulla salus, has been officialy rejected by the magisterium.

He did not say that the Fatima message made public was incomplete since it does not mention what specific dogma would be lost and in what way was the faith lost or will be lost.This has to be deduced from what is already approved by the Vatican.

He did not say that the magisterium is interpreting Vatican Council II, with an irrationality; with the new theology approved by Ratzinger-Rahner, which makes Vatican Council II a break with the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. So the Council becomes non traditional and heretical.The fault is there not with the Council but with the irrational premise and conclusion used to interpret the Council officially.So in this sense the German priest Fr. Ingo Dollinger is correct when he suggests that Vatican Council II indicates a loss of faith.This is something obvious for those who are aware of the irrational premise and conclusion used by the contemporary magisterium.

With the irrational premise and conclusion the ecclesiology of the Church has been changed and so there is a new ecclesiology which is non traditional and heretical. This is the new ecclesiology of the Novus Ordo Mass. It is also the new ecclesiology with which the Tradtiional Latin Mass is offered today with the approval of the present magisterium. The fault is not there with the Mass but with the ecclesiology. So in this sense too Fr.Ingo Dollinger was correct.

Pope Benedict refuses to break his silence and say that without the irrational premise and conclusion, without the new ecclesiology, Vatican Council II and the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus are not a break with Tradition.He wants to maintain the lie.He refuses to break his silence and say that the old and new Mass can be offered with the old ecclesiology.He maintains the deception. If  we do not use the Rahner-Ratzinger new theology, which is based upon an irrational observation, then the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus is still the same as it was in the 16th century.He is not going to announce this.-Lionel Andrades
