    101 Heresies of Anti-Pope John Paul II
    by Patrick John Pollock

    "If anyone holds to one single one of these (heresies) he is not a Catholic."
    -- Pope Leo XIII (from Encyclical Satis Cognitum:28)


    What is Heresy?
    "Heresy consists in a stubborn denial of truths which have been defined an proposed by the Church as divinely revealed doctrines." (Canon 1324-1325 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law).

    What must we believe?
    "By the divine and Catholic Faith, all those things must be believed which are contained in the written Word of God and in tradition, and those which are proposed by the Church, either in a solemn pronouncement or in her ordinary and universal magisterium, to be believed as divinely revealed." (Vatican Council I, Denzinger 1792)

    Who does not believe all those things taught by the Magisterium of the Church?
    "Any baptized person who … obstinately denies or doubts any of the truths proposed for belief by divine and Catholic faith, is a heretic." (C. 1325)

    Can a heretic be a valid Pope of the Roman Catholic Church?

    No. The Papal Bull Cum ex apostolatus officio of Pope Paul IV teaches that: if anyone was a heretic before the Papal election, he could not be a valid pope, even if he is elected unanimously by the Cardinals. Canon 188.4 (1917 Code of Canon Law) teachers that : if a cleric (pope, bishop, etc.) becomes a heretic, he loses his office without any declaration by operation of law. St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Antonius, St. Francis deSales, St. Alphonsus Liguori, and many other tehologians all teach that a heretic cannot be a pope: "If however, God were to permit a pope to become a notoriously and contumacious heretic he would by such fact cease to be pope, and the apostolic chair would be vacant." -- St. Alphonsus Liguori, Church Doctor: Verita bella Fede. Pt. iii, Ch.viii, 9-10.

    Ah, the good old True Catholic Church. Apparently according to them the Pope isn't a Catholic after all but in fact the antichrist, as have all Popes been since 1958.But fear not, for "the True Catholic Church" has filled this 47 year gap by electing Pope Pius XIII in 1998. His Holy See is in Springdale, Washington, and this is his homepage. The Church refuses to give membership stats, but as it has one cardinal and one priest, one assumes the papal election was a brief affair.

    Maybe this is why most folks must normally wait 300 years to get beatified--nobody left alive to protest.

    How does one identify a False Catholic Church?

    Hocus Pocus comes in many flavors.

    Listening to you all (reading), not understanding anything, this must be not only Babylon the fallen, but Babel the confusion of tongues. Yag, come out of her, she smells!
