 And many wonder if the Church has entered that twilight zone too! Here’s a bit a cool satire:

The video in question appeared on a site that mocks, as well as makes horrible claims about Pope Francis.

Example: From that site's Youtube channel:

"How can Bergoglio express sorrow for people who lost their jobs due to COVID and on the same day mandate the abortion-tainted experimental gene therapy for Vatican employees with the threat of the loss of their income if they fail to comply?"

"‘Doctor Bergoglio’ Calls For Worldwide Deployment of Abortion-Tainted Experimental Gene Therapy Inoculations."

-- That site lists Pope Francis among bishops who covered supposedly for priests who abused others sexually.

-- The site also promotes Father Altman.

-- The site promotes LifeSite News' attacks against Pope Francis.

The title, Bergoglio's Twilight Zone, informed me immediately that the video was an attack against the Vicar of Christ.

It is a shame that the site in question delights in mocking Pope Francis.

God's way is to love, and obey, Pope promote, and cherish, Pope Francis' awesome authority to teach, govern, and sanctify us.

Satan's way is to mock, and attack, Pope Francis.

Mark, it is the same tactic being used by the adherents of The Big Lie to call into question any election result with which the are displeased. "Death by a thousand cuts."

It is destructive and will leave an impact that will take generations to recover from.

Fr K,

LOL - I wondered when you would emerge. You must be in mourning for your Party now that it’s sacrament of abortion will no longer hold sway in many states if the terrorists in the Democratic Party prove unsuccessful in frightening the Justices to uphold Roe v Wade. Also only 30% of OF attendees believe in the Real Presence. Should it be suppressed?

The guy who is supporting you is the guy who votes for this Party:

"Some 63 million American babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade. Almost 40% were black even though blacks comprise only about 13% of the population. The black abortion rate is nearly five times the white rate.

Justice Clarence Thomas observed in a Supreme Court case a few years ago that in New York City a black baby is more likely to be aborted than to be born."

Think About It!

Father Kavanaugh, thank you for your comment.


I did more research this afternoon on the site in question that has mocked Pope Francis via the Twilight Zone video.

The folks in question despise the love, concern, and care that Pope Francis has for immigrants.

Therefore, the folks in question called for the Faithful to boycott Peter's Pence...stick it Pope Francis.

Again, I knew immediately that the video in this thread was promoted by vicious anti-Pope Francis folks.

The Holy Ghost does not inspire the mockery of, and attacks against, the Vicar of Christ.

The Big Lie, though it continues to be repeated here and elsewhere, is collapsing.

"MAY 10, 2022
One America News Admits “No Widespread Voter Fraud” by Georgia Election Workers
The acknowledgment came after the network settled a defamation suit filed by two election workers."

"One America News, the right-wing cable network, aired a 30-second segment yesterday essentially admitting the falsity of its previous “reporting” on supposed voter fraud by two Georgia election workers. The prerecorded statement aired shortly after OAN settled a defamation suit brought by Fulton County election workers Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, whom the network had falsely accused of participating in a conspiracy to steal the 2020 election.

“The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct,” a narrator states in the segment. “A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.”

How many illegal aliens are living at the Vatican? Has the Pope voiced his support for overturning Roe V Wade, aka Black genocide? Has he condemned the Democrat Senators, who yesterday voted to make abortion available up until the moment of birth? Or are you going to avoid inconvenient facts like your little buddy does?

TJM said...


The Holy Ghost also does not go for this:

"Abortion, which is the killing of a human life, has been since its beginning inextricably linked to eugenics. That hasn't escaped thoughtful black observers such as Fox Business's Charles Payne, nor the GOP's Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina who have effectively called out this appalling fact, much to the benefit of everyone.

Abortion, which involves targeting the most helpless, is never otherwise. We all know how black lives don't matter to the newspapers and networks in crime-infested blue cities -- it's even more of a problem with abortion targeting the even more helpless who are black babies in the womb. After all, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger famously promoted abortion as a means of getting rid of black people. The Bolsheviks introduced abortion in 1920 explicitly to break up families in order to make the survivors loyal only to the state. Prior to that, abortion was unthinkable. The left now tries to hide that sordid past, but even today, the ugly truth slips out.

Which brings us to Joe Biden's Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, who, rather than get into the "my body, my choice" weeds of the street screamers baying outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, put out her own dry economic analysis on the value of abortions to society:"

TJM said...


Do you think the Holy Ghost would agree with this?

"The astonishing Democrat tone-deafness regarding items of actual interest to Americans, coupled with the party’s utter disregard for human life’s value, reached a new high, or low if you prefer, on Wednesday. This transpired when Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA), having freshly scolded her colleagues’ inability to recognize inflation’s devastating effect on their constituents, stated that inflation is abortion justification."

If we did not have corrupt bishops and priests, maybe the Democrat Party would not be so fixated on abortion as what they perceive as a winning issue? This woman would have fit in nicely in the Third Reich.

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

While the organization which produced this satire might be questionable and it is, they present the truth of what the pope said that day, which is completely orthodox and then what the Vatican did later in the day that exacerbates the pain of those suffering because of the Covid catastrophe. Even Mussolini got the Italian trains to run on time and Italians still thank him for that today.

I find it interesting that the more erudite commenters here did not comment on the disconnect between the pope's words and what he evidently approved.

Fr. Michael J. Kavanaugh said...

Fr. ALLAN McDonald - What you seem not to consider is that many of the erudite folks who comment here do not share your peculiar views regarding the Holy Father's words.

There is no "disconnect" between praying for and encouraging compassion for those who CAN'T find work and those, who, by their own foolish and selfish choice not to be vaccinated, aren't working in jobs they CAN have.

I find it telling, not interesting, that you don't understand the difference.

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

Cue the twilight zone music on that comment!

Fr. Michael J. Kavanaugh said...

Yeah, the Twilight Zone music would accompany the satirical video perfectly . . .

Biden's leftwing policies have triggered terrible inflation and painfully high gasoline and good prices. And who gets hurt? Not the Hollywood elites, but the working classes, the people the Party of Intrinsic Evil claims to be fighting for. Trump's policies resulted in low inflation and better paying jobs, particularly, for minorities. And his policies created over 500,000 manufacturing jobs Obama claimed were NEVER coming back. It must pain you to see all of this incompetence and pain generated by YOUR Party! I could also toss in no new hot wars during the Trump years, but that would be overkill.

We are living in the Democrat Twilight Zone!

TJM said...

Since Father K likes to gratuitously bring up sex scandals involving politicians (if they are Republicans), well here is one involving a Democrat. Now in Father K's defense he may have missed it since the MSM has done its best to hide it because it involves, drum roll, please, a Democrat:

TJM said...

This is what bishops and priests are voting for if they continue to vote Democrat:

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issuing a press release Monday stating the party would “fight relentlessly to enshrine Roe v. Wade as the law of the land.” FYI she has a 100% NARAL voting record!

You can run, but you can't hide, boys. And a Catholic voting for the Democrats is akin to a Jew voting for Hitler.

Mark said...

“If we did not have corrupt bishops and priests, maybe the Democrat Party would not be so fixated on abortion as what they perceive as a winning issue?”

As if the Republican Party (and the Religious Right, especially politically ambitious Evangelicals) have not perceived abortion and used abortion, in many cases very cynically, as a “winning issue” for decades.

TJM should be disgusted with both parties and their corruption of our political conversation. But he isn’t. I wonder why.
