Pledge of Fidelity signatories reject de fide teachings of the Catholic Church and support a new irrational theology
Pledge of Fidelity
FAITHFUL TO TRUE DOCTRINE, NOT ERRING PASTORS
The number of innocent children killed by abortion during the last century is greater than that of all the human beings who have died in all the wars in recorded history. The last fifty years have witnessed a continual escalation in attacks on the structure of the family as designed and willed by God, which provides the best environment for human flourishing, and, especially, for the education and formation of children. Divorce, contraception, acceptance of homosexual acts and unions, and the spread of “gender ideology” have all done immeasurable damage to the family, and its most vulnerable members.
Over the last fifty years the pro-life and pro-family movement has grown in both size and scope in order to confront these grave evils, which threaten both the temporal and eternal good of mankind. Our movement comprises men and women of good will from a wide variety of religious backgrounds. We are brought together in our defence of the family, and of the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters, through obedience to the natural law, which is written on all our hearts (cf. Rm 2:15). However, throughout this last half century the pro-life and pro-family movement has relied in a particular way on the immutable teaching of the Catholic Church, which affirms the moral law with the greatest clarity.
It is therefore with great sorrow that during recent years we have witnessed doctrinal and moral clarity, on issues relating to the protection of human life and the family, increasingly being replaced by ambiguity, and even by doctrines directly contrary to the teaching of Christ and the precepts of the natural law.
Lionel : The signatories in general have made an error.They have made a major error in theology and doctrine. For example invisible cases of the baptism of desire(BOD), baptism of blood(BOB) and being saved in invincible ignorance(I.I) are visible exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS).So they will not affirm Feeneyite EENS.
Without Feeneyite EENS Vatican Council II becomes a rupture with Tradition.Since when BOD, BOB and I.I are considered exceptions to Feeneyite EENS, then it means that BOD, BOB and I.I refer to known people saved outside the Church. These are known cases of BOD, BOB and I.I for them to be exceptions.Invisible people cannot be exceptions to all needing to be incorporated into the Church with no known exception for salvation in the present times(2017).
With Feeneyite EENS it would mean that the signatories do not consider BOD, BOB and I.I as being exceptions to EENS. They are not exceptions since obviously they refer to hypothetical cases.They cannot be known people saved outside the Church.So if the signatories affirmed Feeneyite EENS then they would be saying that Vatican Council II is not a rupture with the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Church.
But they do not affirm Feeneyite EENS. While I do so as a Catholic.
So they are not faithful to the dogma EENS as it was know to the missionaries and magisterium of the 16th century, they use a new and irrational theology(Cushingism) and they interpret Vatican Council II as a rupture with the past ecclesiology when for me it is not a rupture.
So they are not faithful to the past teachings of the Church and have created new doctrines in salvation theology and the present two popes do the same.
So they are not affirming Feeneyite EENS and they are correcting Pope Francis and the Vatican Curia on doctrine.
A Filial Appeal, delivered to Pope Francis in September 2015, was signed by around 900,000 people from all over the world and a “Declaration of fidelity to the unchangeable teaching of the Church on matrimony” was presented in 2016. On 19 September 2016 four cardinals submitted five dubia to Pope Francis, and to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, asking for the clarification of certain points of doctrine in the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia. In June 2017, the cardinals made public their request for an audience, which had been presented to the Pope by Cardinal Carlo Caffarra on 25 April 2017, but which, like the dubia, had received no response. On 23 September 2017 a Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis was issued by 62 Catholic theologians and academics “on account of the propagation of heresies effected by the apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia and by other words, deeds and omissions” of Pope Francis. By 4 November 2017, 250 theologians, priests, professors and scholars of all nationalities had pledged their support to the Correctio. Lionel:None of them affirm Feeneyite EENS.So they support the new ecclesiology. They affirm the new theology based on visible for them BOD, BOB and I.I.
So Cardinal Walter Kasper said before the Synod in an interview that if the Church could accept the new ecclesiology then they could also accept Holy Communion being given at Mass to the divorced and remarried.
I have been writing about this since 2015 and none of the signatories to the various appeals or the dubbia cardinals have responded. Since they do not want to affirm Feeneyite EENS.
The disorder within the Church is increasing, as witnessed by a letter recently sent to Pope Francis by a prominent theologian, which, the author stated, was prompted by “turmoil within the Church today, a chaos and an uncertainty that I felt Pope Francis had himself caused.” 1
Lionel: Pope Francis too wants to remain politically correct with the Left,like the signatories and dubbia cardinals, and so he will not affirm Feeneyite EENS. Invisible cases of the BOD, BOB and I.I are visible exceptions to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma EENS. So EENs for him, and Pope Benedict is no more like it was for the missionaries in the 16th century.Pope Benedict confirmed this in March 2016(Avvenire) and none of the signatories objected.
As Catholic pro-life and pro-family leaders, we are obliged to highlight numerous additional statements and actions, which have had a particularly damaging impact on our work for the protection of unborn children and the family in recent years. Representative examples include:
statements and actions which contradict the Church’s teaching on the intrinsic evil of contraceptive acts 2;
statements and actions which contradict the Church’s teaching on the nature of marriage and the intrinsic evil of sexual acts outside the union of marriage 3;
the approval of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which effectively call for member states to achieve universal access to abortion, contraception and sex education by 2030 4;
the approach adopted towards sex education, particularly in chapter 7 of Amoris Laetitia and in The Meeting Point programme produced by the Pontifical Council for the Family 5.
As leaders within the pro-life and pro-family movement, or leaders of lay movements concerned with the defence and diffusion of Catholic moral and social teaching, we have witnessed first-hand the harm and confusion caused by such teaching and actions. In order to fulfil our responsibilities to those whom we have pledged to protect, in particular unborn children and those made especially vulnerable by the breakdown of the family, we must provide clarity on our position on these issues. We must also provide leadership to those within our movement who look to us for guidance and advice.
Lionel: The Director of the Human Life International, Rome,Fr. Francesco Giordano will not affirm Feeneyite EENS in public probably he fears he he could be suspended as a priest. So he teaches a semester at the University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), Rome in which invisible for him cases of the BOD, BOB and I.I are visible exceptions to the dogma EENS as it was known over the centuries. He probaby has to do this to keep his teaching career. What he teaches is false.It is objectively wrong. It is a deception.Yet his personal interests over ride speaking the truth of the faith and affirming traditional doctrines and theology. If he can violate the Principle of Non Contradiction, then why should he expect mothers not to abort or use contraceptives?. Even they could rationalize.He is not a signatory here.
Similarly the Editor and Co founder ofLifesitesNews, John Henry Weston,one of the signatories here will not affirm Feeneyite EENS.Since it will financially affect his business and earnings. Lifesites could be accused of being anti-Semitic, racist etc. So why are the same allowances also not made for Pope Francis ? He could be doing what he does to protect himself and the Vatican ?
For this reason, we wish to make clear our unchanging adherence to the fundamental moral positions outlined below:
there exist certain acts which are intrinsically evil and which it is always forbidden to commit 6;
the direct killing of an innocent human being is always gravely immoral; consequently, abortion, euthanasia and assisted suicide are intrinsically evil acts 7;
marriage is the exclusive and indissoluble union of one man and one woman; all sexual acts outside of marriage, including in all forms of non-marital union, are intrinsically evil and gravely injurious to individuals and to society 8;
adultery is a grave sin, and those who live in adultery cannot be admitted to the sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion, until such time as they repent and amend their lives 9;
parents are the primary educators of their children, and the provision of sex education must be undertaken by parents or, in certain circumstances, “in educational centres chosen and controlled by them”10;
the separation of the procreative and unitive ends of the sexual act by contraceptive methods is intrinsically evil and has devastating consequences for the family, for society and for the Church 11;
methods of artificial reproduction are gravely immoral as they separate procreation from the sexual act and, in the great majority of cases, lead directly to the destruction of human life in its earliest stages 12;
there are only two sexes, male and female, each of which possesses the complementary characteristics and differences that are proper to them 13;
homosexual acts are intrinsically evil, and no form of union between persons of the same sex can be approved in any way 14.
Lionel: Morally it is wrong not to affirm Feeneyite EENS and pretend that there are visible cases of non Catholics saved outside the Church. This is deception and a lie.The lie is being maintained even after the signatories know about it.
As Catholic pro-life and pro-family leaders we must remain faithful to Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has entrusted the deposit of faith to his Church.
Lionel: To assume unknown cases of BOD, BOB and I.I are known exceptions to Feeneyite EENS is not the deposit of the faith. It is an innovation in the Church. Where are the practical exceptions to EENS in 2017 for the signatories?
The signatories violate the Principle of Non Contradiction and remain politically correct on the salvation issue.Then they ask the pope not to remain politically correct with the Left on the moral issue.
We “are obliged to yield to God the revealer full submission of intellect and will by faith.”15 We fully assent to all those things “which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and Tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”16
Lionel: There is a rupture between faith and reason when it is assumed unknown cases of BOD, BOB and I.I are known exceptions to EENS, as it was interpreted by the missionaries and magisterium of the 16th century.
We pledge our full obedience to the hierarchy of the Catholic Church in the legitimate exercise of its authority.
Lionel:When the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, the present two popes, interpret hypothetical cases as being known examples of salvation outside the Church why is this not corrected ? The signatories and the liberal German bishops are on the same side on the salvation issue.
However, nothing will ever persuade us, or compel us, to abandon or contradict any article of the Catholic faith or any truth definitively established.
Lionel: I interpret all magisterial documents without the irrational premise i.e invisible people are visible.The signatories and the hierarchy do not do so.
I affirm EENS(Feeneyite) and the signatories affirm EENS (Cushingite)-
I affirm Vatican Council II without the false premise. The signatories interpret it with the false premise.
I interpret the Nicene Creed without the irrationality. For me there is no irrational premise so it remains, 'I believe in one baptism'.It is the baptism of water which is visible and repeatable.The signatories interpret the Nicene Creed with the irrational premise(' I believe in three or more known baptisms they are desire, blood and invincible ignorance and they exclude the baptism of water in the Catholic Church.)
For me the signatories in general are irrational, non traditional and heretical.If there are any exceptions among them they have have not expressed themself in public on this issue.None of them have been able to deny what I have written explaining themself with theology and doctrine.
Basically I am saying that invisible people cannot be visible at the same time. They disagree with me.Their theology is based upon this irrationality(people saved in Heaven are visible exceptions to the dogma EENS on earth).For me this cannot be the deposit of the faith.
If there is any conflict between the words and acts of any member of the hierarchy, even the pope, and the doctrine that the Church has always taught, we will remain faithful to the perennial teaching of the Church.
Lionel: The two popes reject Feeneyite EENs. They affirm EENS with visible for them BOD, BOB and I.I which I call Cushingite EENS.
The two popes reject Feeneyite Vatican Council II and accept the irrational Cushingite Vatican Council II.
In general they use the false premise to interpret magisterial documents and this is accepted by the signatories. Since they do the same.
If we were to depart from the Catholic faith, we would depart from Jesus Christ, to Whom we wish to be united for all eternity.
We, the undersigned, pledge that we will continue to teach and propagate the above moral principles, and every other authentic teaching of the Catholic Church, and will never, for any reason, depart from them.
Lionel: I affirm the moral principles which you support and I am waiting for you to do the same on the salvation principles of the Church which I affirm as a good Catholic.-Lionel Andrades
