The Catholic Church has always been abundantly clear about what it takes to be a member of its Church and to lose membership. In his Encyclical, Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943, Pope Pius XII declared:

“Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed….For not every sin, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy.”

Pope Leo XIII declared in his Encyclical, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896:

“5 So the Christian is a Catholic as long as he lives in the body: cut off from it he becomes a heretic – the life of the spirit follows not the amputated member…The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium….St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. “No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic” (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88)…In this wise, all cause for doubting being removed, can it be lawful for anyone to reject any one of those truths without by the very fact falling into heresy? without separating himself from the Church? – without repudiating in one sweeping act the whole of Christian teaching? For such is the nature of faith that nothing can be more absurd than to accept some things and reject others…”

Pope Pius IX emphasizes the dogma of the plenary power of the pope on giving assent and obedience to those judgments and decrees of the Apostolic See, whose object is declared to relate to the general good of the Church and its rights and discipline, even those that don’t touch upon dogmas of faith or morals. [1]

Anything else is a loss of the Catholic profession of faith.

The first mark of the Church, which identifies the true religion of Jesus Christ, is the dogma that the Church is one in faith. As Pope Leo XIII declared, “For such is the nature of faith that nothing can be more absurd than to accept some things and reject others.”

Not only do all the members of the Vatican 2 religion of Bergoglio not profess the same faith, many of the staunchest defenders of Bergoglio being a true pope don’t even claim that it’s necessary to be a member. They prove it each time they recognize as members those who knowingly reject Catholic dogma. They actually hold and DEFEND the very absurdity Pope Leo XIII speaks of.

Bergoglio praises liberals like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi who openly say abortion is a good and an intrinsic right of the human person. [2] You’ll find liberals openly reject the Real Presence, Purgatory, and many other dogmas. The religion that recognizes Bergoglio as pope has bishops and priests such as “Bp” John Stowe of Lexington, KY, and “Fr.” James Martin who promote the LGBTQ lifestyle. Bergoglio appoints and praises them, too. [3] The same religion also has members on the conservative side that reject and condemn Vatican 2, papal encyclicals, apostolic exhortations, etc, and think their pope is a manifest heretic, but pope nonetheless.

In 2017, the question was posed to John Salza and Robert Siscoe whether Bergoglio professes the Catholic Faith. Their response was, “YES, Pope Francis “professes the faith” sufficiently enough to retain his membership in the Church.” [4]

Salza and Siscoe’s response implies there’s a percentage of Catholicism that must be professed to retain membership in the Church. In other words, you don’t have to profess everything the Church professes. However, they know very well their pope doesn’t profess the Catholic faith. They admit (as private individuals) that he’s a heretic, which they can’t do if they also say he professes the Catholic faith. [5]

If you press Salza and Siscoe further, they would be forced to tell you that no Catholic teaching is required for membership as long as you claim to be Catholic and recognize Bergoglio as pope. They insist that warnings and declarations of excommunication, etc. are needed before one loses membership in the Church. This is how they avoid sedevacantism.

When I asked Robert Siscoe whether Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are Catholics and members of the Church, he said yes. They have not been declared excommunicated. Michael Voris of Church Militant calls Biden and Pelosi fake Catholics for not professing the faith, but won’t apply the same logic to his pope.

It’s a believe-whatever-you-want religion. As long as you’re not excommunicated, you may believe whatever you want and this especially includes their pope (if you’re with Church Militant). I used Salza and Siscoe as examples, but you’ll find the same thing with anyone who argues against the position of sedevacantism. 

Over a decade ago, I asked my anything-but-sedevacantist brother, “if Rev. Richard McBrien were elected pope, would you accept him as pope?” The late McBrien was head of the theological department of Notre Dame and publicly denied the existence of the devil in 1991 on the ABC TV program “Nightline” with Ted Koppel. Not to mention, McBrien publicly promoted birth control.

My brother answered, “No. Because he pertinaciously denies the Catholic faith. But, I don’t believe we’ve had a man anything close to him elected to office.” When he realized his answer clearly proved sedevacantism was right in principle, he later changed his response to, “If he were like Fr. McBrian, I would question his orthodoxy and papal election. But, would still prefer to have someone with authority call a council so that the whole world would question it, and, make it know publicly, even if that weren’t necessary. Still, I couldn’t depose him. God Himself would have to. Not a sedevacantist.”

My brother is ultimately saying that a pope doesn’t have to believe in the existence of the devil, because if no council is held or nothing at all is done about it, a dogma denying individual like McBrien could legitimately hold the Chair of Peter. Yet, that’s precisely what’s happened for the past 60 plus years with the Vatican 2 popes, who’ve openly professed heresy. All of them profess the heresy of religious liberty [6], John Paul II denied the dogma of Christ’s literal descent into hell [7], and the list goes on.  

How much worse can it get for the Vatican 2 religion when their pope now is teaching that the death penalty attacks the inviolability and the dignity of the person, God permissively willed the diversity of the human sex, appoints openly pro-LGBTQ bishops and priests, and recently requested the world’s leaders and media to censor anyone who questions the covid scamdemic and dangers of the vaccines?

As I’ve said in the past, if Bergoglio has fulfilled the First Vatican Council’s definition of pope, why would a council need to be called to depose him? After all, these so-called Catholics must believe “Pope” Francis has kept the Catholic religion unsullied and teaching holy, remained unimpaired by any error, have unfailing faith from Christ’s prayer, strengthen his brethren with the Catholic Faith, turned the poisonous food of error away from the flock of Christ, nourished the Catholic flock with heavenly doctrine, removed all occasion of schism that the Church might be saved as one, and stayed firm against the gates of hell.

But when you’re in a believe-whatever-you-want religion, it doesn’t matter what the First Vatican Council has taught, what Pope Leo XIII taught, what Pope Pius XII taught, what canon law teaches, or what God has told us in Scripture. You may believe-whatever-you-want in the religion of Bergoglio to be a member.

To prove my point once again, anti-sedevacantists always use arguments from authorities from the past such as John of St. Thomas against sedevacantism. Yet, these same anti-sedes don’t even follow their own pope or Vatican 2 council on issues. How do they think John of St. Thomas’ opinion carries more theological weight than a pope or council? For them, citing an authority about something authoritative is a self-refuting way of arguing, but that’s what you get with someone in a believe-whatever-you-want religion.

Sometimes, they’ll even try to accuse past popes of heresy as an example to prove popes can be heretical. Problem is that’s another self-condemning argument, because it’s an argument on behalf of the Eastern Orthodox and Protestants. The Church is one in faith. If a pope professes heresy and remains pope, the Church ceases to be one in faith. Again, Pope Leo XIII declared,For such is the nature of faith that nothing can be more absurd than to accept some things and reject others…”

The religion of Bergoglio is a prime of example of the absurdity, which Pope Leo speaks about. Despite themselves, the members of this believe-whatever-you-want religion are witnessing against their own religion when they argue against sedevacantism.  




[1] And, we cannot pass over in silence the boldness of those who “not enduring sound doctrine” [II Tim. 4:3], contend that “without sin and with no loss of Catholic profession, one can withhold assent and obedience to those judgments and decrees of the Apostolic See, whose object is declared to relate to the general good of the Church and its rights and discipline, provided it does not touch dogmas of faith or morals.” There is no one who does not see and understand clearly and openly how opposed this is to the Catholic dogma of the plenary power divinely bestowed on the Roman Pontiff by Christ the Lord Himself of feeding, ruling, and governing the universal Church.

In such great perversity of evil opinions, therefore, We, truly mindful of Our Apostolic duty, and especially solicitous about our most holy religion, about sound doctrine and the salvation of souls divinely entrusted to Us, and about the good of human society itself, have decided to lift Our Apostolic voice again. And so all and each evil opinion and doctrine individually mentioned in this letter, by Our Apostolic authority We reject, proscribe, and condemn; and We wish and command that they be considered as absolutely rejected, proscribed, and condemned by all the sons of the Catholic Church. (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, Dec 8, 1864.)

[5] Professing the faith and professing heresy are mutually exclusive. Profession means your mind must be in inconformity with the mind of the Church. A Catholic willing to submit to whatever the Church teaches even though the individual Catholic is mistaken about something, still professes the Faith. That’s why we can’t write off everyone as non-Catholic if they mistakenly think Bergoglio is pope. See also

Major Government Report Proves Covid Vaccines are Bioweapons

Dr. Shows Horrifying Images Of Magnified COVID Vaccines

Dr. Carrie Madej joins Stew to reveal her findings after examining the Moderna and J&J vials. What she found will absolutely make your skin crawl!

Many respected doctors, (from a Nobel Peace Prize nominated doctor to whole groups of virologists, ER, and other medical doctors) have predicted that most people will die from the so-called vaccination. [1] I don’t know how accurate these predictions are, but I personally know several people who’ve already died after taking the jab. A majority of American doctors are not even getting the “vaccine.” [2]

I have an idea. How about we encourage our family and friends to get a short term life insurance policy for those who got or will get “vaccinated”, especially military personnel, who don’t have a choice if they want to say in the military. Offer to pay for a policy if they don’t want to bother with it.

Imagine if everyone who got the “vaccine” took out a short term life insurance policy. Insurance companies will eventually have to stop accepting policies from those vaccinated. It might make headline news and expose the evils surrounding the vaccines and those pushing it.

Just an idea. What do you think?

In 1921, Theologian Fr. E. Sylvester Berry wrote about the future of the Catholic Church using St. John’s Apocalypse. He writes about an interregnum unlike any in history:

It shall be war unto death between the Church and the powers of darkness in a final effort of Satan to destroy the Church and thus prevent the universal reign of Christ on earth…

The Papacy will be attacked by all the powers of hell. In consequence the Church will suffer great trials and afflictions in securing a successor upon the throne of Peter…

The dragon is seen in heaven which is here a symbol of the Church, the kingdom of heaven on earth. This indicates that the first troubles of those days will be inaugurated within the Church by apostate bishops, priests, and peoples,–the stars dragged down by the tail of the dragon.

The tail of the dragon represents the cunning hypocrisy with which he succeeds in deceiving a large number of people and pastors — a third part of the stars. Arianism led away many bishops, priests, and peoples. The pretended [Protestant] Reformation of the sixteenth century claimed still larger numbers but these cannot be compared to the numbers seduced by Satan in the days of Antichrist.

The dragon stands before the woman ready to devour the child that is brought forth. In other words, the powers of hell seek by all means to destroy the Pope elected in those days…

Scarcely has the newly elected Pope been enthroned when he is snatched away by martyrdom. The “mystery of iniquity” gradually developing through the centuries, cannot be fully consummated while the power of the Papacy endures, but now he that “withholdeth is taken out of the way.” During the interregnum “that wicked one shall be revealed” in his fury against the Church.

It is a matter of history that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal throne was vacant, or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate head of the Church. Thus also shall it be in those evil days to come.

The Church deprived of her chief pastor must seek sanctuary in solitude there to be guided by God Himself during those trying days. 

(Rev. E. Sylvester Berry, The Apocalypse of St. John [Columbus, OH: John W. Winterich, 1921], pp. 120-127)

Electronic version (free): The Apocalypse of St. John by Fr. E. Sylvester Berry (1921)



On August 17, 2021, the employees at the Catholic Center of the Diocese of Lexington were instructed by Bishop John Stowe to be vaccinated by Sept. 1 as a condition for employment. He announced that he’ll support his priests who implement the same policy. Stowe also requires masks to be worn as a condition of employment.

Stowe explained: “This is an urgent matter of public health and safety. There is no religious exemption for Catholics to being vaccinated, and Pope Francis has repeatedly called this a moral obligation. The health care system is now overwhelmed by a crisis caused primarily by those who refuse to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated. This is unacceptable, and our diocese now joins those employers who have already made this basic commitment to the common good a requirement.”[1]

The implications of Bishop Stowe’s statement are:

  •  It’s morally obligatory to get vaccinated because the unvaccinated are the primary cause of the crisis.
  •  It’s immoral to refuse to be vaccinated.

Why would the rest of diocese be exempt from the requirement of getting vaccinated if the morality and the end of the crisis depend on getting vaccinated?

Perhaps Stowe can make a mandate by threatening a few jobs, which can be easily filled by others, but he can’t mandate the whole diocese without the threat of losing half the members of the diocese, thus losing half of the diocesan income. Therefore, you won’t see a diocesan wide vaccine mandate.

The bottom line here is morality and public health take a backseat to money with Bishop Stowe, who just proved it with his hypocritical mandate.

All that’s needed to stop the bishop’s tyranny is for enough members to stop giving money to their diocese.

As for claiming religious exemption, not only do Catholics have a right, but a duty to stand in their religious convictions against so-called vaccines known to be very dangerous. [2] There are other options, which are a much safer and more effective means against the sickness. Stowe is contradicting his own religion on religious liberty against his own flock. 

Bishop Stowe’s tyrannical mandate is not about morality and public health. It’s about control. Stowe is just another authoritarian on a mission to usher in antichrist against God-fearing people who love freedom.

The so-called crisis depends on the flow of money, which is the god of this world.

Dr. David Martin w/ Stew Peters: There Is No Virus. This Is Organized Crime. – Truth Comes to Light

The first damned souls Dante writes about in his Inferno are the cowards who are being tortured by stinging flies and wasps.

In the Apocalypse, St. John lists cowards first among the unbelievers, sodomites, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters, and liars and thieves who will go to hell. [1]

Cowards are never the heroes. They are the forgotten losers of history.

Cowardice springs from the cardinal sin of sloth, because the coward neglects his duty to God and neighbor. There are different degrees of the sin of cowardice, but the most severe degree is despair and suicide, which is a blasphemy of the Holy Ghost that’s never forgiven (Matt. 12:31-32).

Cowardice is a sin opposed to fortitude.

Fortitude is one of the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost, which is given to strengthen us to do the will of God in all things. Fortitude is also one of the four cardinal virtues, which the whole moral life hinges on. It helps man conquer fear by standing firm against evil. It may cost him his reputation, freedom, or life in the process. Fortitude enables man to endure and/or overcome trials, persecution, and martyrdom for love of God and neighbor.

The precept of fortitude is always obligatory. Therefore, it’s never lawful to be cowardly.

On Pentecost, the Holy Ghost fell upon the Apostles and gave them the courage to preach the Gospel until their deaths, most of them by martyrdom. When we receive the sacrament of Confirmation, we’ve been given the strength of the Holy Ghost. We, too, must be faithful till the end as brave soldiers of Christ in the fight against the devil, flesh, and the world.

We are the Church Militant. Cowardice is the opposite of militant.

The North American Martyrs were some of the bravest men the Church has ever known. In order to save souls, they braved crossing of the ocean where 1 in 7 ships sank in the treacherous waters. Once they reached America, they braved the elements and the savage dealings from the ones they were trying to save. They knew that each and every day might be their very last, but they did it for love of God and Church.

We see stories of brave Catholics all throughout history. I immediately think of the 26 Martyrs of Nagasaki, Japan, but every nation has its martyrs. [2] Just read the stories of these great black Catholics I posted several years ago.  

Cowardice is the opposite of these saints and the Church’s mission in saving souls. When Catholics are brave in their faith, the Church is made richer and stronger in faith. When Catholics are cowardly, the Church becomes weaker. This is no more apparent than with the Second Vatican Council and great apostasy, where, according to Archbishop Lefebvre, 250 bishops believed the council was filled with error, but were too cowardly to come forward and make a stand against the modernists. [3]

Fortunately, priests, such as Fr. Joaquín Sáenz y Arriaga – Catholic Champion of the Late 20th Century had the courage to stand against them all. He documented the heresies of Paul VI and was “excommunicated” by the apostate. Because of his courage, he helped save the Catholic Church from cowardly bishops, who would have destroyed it, if not for Christ’s will to save it.

Satan used pride to bring about the fall of man and now uses cowardice to finish us.

Unfortunately, all of us have succumbed to cowardice at some point in our lives. I remember one particular time when in 1988, I took off my Brown Scapular in boot camp by a direct order from a superior. To repair this sin, because we must make restitution, I promote the Brown Scapular, give it away often, and have worn it every day since boot camp vowing never to remove it again.

Some people live in cowardice habitually.

Fr. Shouppe tells a story in his book “Hell” where a young man withheld one mortal sin in confession because he was too ashamed. After death, he appeared to the religious community he belonged to tell them he was in hell for refusing to confess one mortal sin.

I know many examples, but one particularly striking example is a lady I know, who believes in the truth of sedevacantism, but will only attend a Vatican 2 mass in fear of losing her marriage. The whole purpose of marriage is to help our spouse get to heaven and bring up children to do the same. In this case, the wife is actually encouraging her husband to remain in his sin. She is helping him lose his salvation rather than helping him gain it. If they had children, she would be setting a bad example and bringing them up in a false religion, where they may end up losing their salvation as well. Her cowardice could cost her and her entire family their very souls.

A common example today is found with the so-called pandemic, where many people have participated in the lie of wearing masks and getting “vaccinated” out of fear of what people will think of them. Not only has scientific truth taken a back seat, but moral truth is disregarded out of fear. Government tyranny depends on the cowardice of the people. It sickens me to no end to see so many people giving in to such nonsense, both scientific and moral. The end result will be the loss of what little freedom is left in the world. America has become a land of the slave and home of the coward. Few are willing to sacrifice a little comfort, much less, their livelihoods or their lives. We are doomed as a nation because of cowardice.   

People fear being taken out of their comfort zone and therefore, cowardice is the way for many.

Jesus counters cowardice in several examples: 22 And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall persevere unto the end, he shall be saved. 23 And when they shall persecute you in this city, flee into another. Amen I say to you, you shall not finish all the cities of Israel, till the Son of man come. 24 The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the goodman of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household? 26 Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known. 27 That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not therefore: better are you than many sparrows. 32 Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven. 34 Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. 35 For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s enemies shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. (Matthew 10: 28-39)

We may fear losing affection from our loved ones, of being persecuted, of suffering of all types, but God tells us to love Him above all and through our love for Him, we shall overcome and gain salvation. If not, we will lose our salvation. It’s that simple.

No one wants a coward on their side, especially Our Lord! The bottom line is the coward loves not the Lord or his neighbor, which is why he can’t go to heaven as one.




[1] But the fearful [coward], and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (1899 Douay Rheims – Apocalypse 21:8)

Knox translation: But not the cowards, not those who refuse belief, not those whose lives are abominable; not the murderers, the fornicators, the sorcerers, the idolaters, not those who are false in any of their dealings. Their lot awaits them in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, and it is the second death.
