Sandro Magister, a credible and well respected journalist known to lock horns with “Pope” Francis now and again, relates on his blog that an anonymous group of laymen who identify themselves by the acronym OARCPF (Osservatorio per l’Attuazione della Riforma della Chiesa di Papa Francesco, “Observatory for the Implementation of the Church Reform of Pope Francis”) has been sending out official-sounding emails issuing veiled threats against faculty members at academic institutions in Rome if they do not teach the revolutionary doctrines of Amoris Laetitia that undermine Catholic morality. What they teach in their classrooms, the emails make clear, is being “monitored”.
Magister has reproduced all the emails received by professors at the so-called “Pontifical Institute of John Paul II for Studies on Marriage and the Family” in his blog post. Here is an English translation of the text by Rorate Caeli:
Incredible - Sandro Magister reveals: A Banana-Republic Gestapo for Francis: Either Defend Amoris Laetitia, or You're In Trouble
You will not believe the ridiculousness of it all, but Bergoglioland has finally reached full Banana Republic status. Pope Francis, the Anastasio Somoza of Adultery, the of Sinful Cohabitation, has under him now a Secret "Police", the (OARCPF - Observatory for the Implementation of the Church Reform of Pope Francis) sending our e-mail letters of official tone to professors in Roman institutions demanding them to teach Amoris Laetitia according to the mind of the Pope (that is, Holy Communion to public adulterers and fornicators) -- or (the threat is obviously implied) to face expulsion.
Sandro Magister reveals it today in his , and calls it a "", in reference to the "" (SP) St. Pius X supposedly established as an underground network to find Modernists infiltrated in the Church. The main difference, of course, is that the supposed "SP" tried to do a good thing (that is, avoid the spread of errors and novelties that attempted against the Faith and Morals the Church has always professed), while the Pope's new Banana-Gestapo (like the actual Gestapo or the KGB) tries to do a bad thing: expel from Catholic institutions those who simply want to teach Catholic Faith and Morals as the Church has always taught them -- and warns all that they are being in order to toe the new pro-adultery and pro-cohabitation line.
Magister transcribes the letter received by faculty in the Pontifical Institute John Paul II for Studies on Marriage and the Family (linked to the Lateran University). The threats contained in it are not hollow, because to completely subject the board of the Institute to HIS new view of marriage (as opposed to Jesus Christ's and John Paul II's), putting strong henchmen in their place. Men who would not mind following orders, even if absurd.
Subject: Monitoring of studies and teaching in the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
Dear Mr/Ms Professor
Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
Pontifical Lateran University
As has already happened and is happening for other pastoral, academic, and cultural Catholic institutions, our (OARCPF) – an initiative of a group of Catholuc lay people in support of the pontificate of Pope Francis – has begun in the current academic year the monitoring of the contents of publications of faculty and the teachings imparted [in class] in the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in order to make clear the adaptations or eventual disagreements regarding the address made by Pope Francis on the occasion of the opening of the new academic year of your Institute (Sala Clementina, October 28, 2016), in which you were called "to support the necessary opening of the intelligence of the faith in the service of the pastoral solicitude of the Successor of Peter."
In particular, the contents of published works and the imparted classes will be taken into consideration in reference to what is expressed in the apostolic Exhortation "Amoris laetitia", according to the image "of the Church that is, not of a Church thought in one's own image and likeness," orienting research and teaching not anymore towards "a too abstract theological ideal of matrimony, almost artificially built, far from the concrete situation and from the effective possibilities of families as they are" (Pope Francis, mentioned address, October 28, 2016).
To this end, we will make use of the analytical and critical reading of the studies published by the faculty, of the theses of graduation and doctorate approved by the Institute, of the syllabus of classes of of their bibliographies, as well as interviews of students made after classes, in the square in front of the Lateran University.
Certain that we are doing a useful task to improve the service that you perform with dedication to the Church and to the Holy Father, we keep you up to date on the results of our observational study.
Of course, it may be something limited to the Lateran University -- but if one professor is affected in the content of the classes out of fear of spreading the truth, the Bergoglian forces will have already triumphed.
That is true, and that is what is happening now!
