In 1886 a Spanish Catholic priest by the name of Father Felix Sarda Y Salvany published a controversial book titled (in English), Liberalism is a Sin. In his work, Fr. Felix clearly and succinctly lays out the errors of liberalism. He rightly labels it a sin, but not just any sin. After proving liberalism to be a grave sin against faith–the taproot of all virtues–Fr. Felix writes thus: “Liberalism, then, which is heresy, and all the works of liberalism, which are heretical works, are the gravest sins known in the code of the Christian law.”
It is this writer’s contention that the Pope of the Novus Ordo Church, Francis the liberal, is guilty of the “gravest sins known in the code of the Christian law.”
To justify such a stupendous claim, we must first define what is liberalism. Fr. Felix writes, “Liberalism is the dogmatic affirmation of the absolute independence of the individual and of the social reason.” Such an error is the natural result of Protestantism, which states that, “…one creed is as good as another…Belief is not imposed by a legitimately and divinely constituted authority, but springs directly and freely from the unrestricted exercise of the individual’s reason or caprice upon the subject-matter of Revelation.”
How does this apply to Francis? The man fits Fr. Felix’s description to a T. Almost every action of Francis’ nascent reign is intended to uplift the individual’s rights at the expense of God’s rights.
Just look at his most famous statement, “Who am I to judge?” In a way, this statement sums up Francis’ entire mission. He does not view himself as the visible head of the One True Church established by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, or else he would be using the lawful authority of the papacy to do just that–judge! Instead, Francis consistently preaches the absolute independence of the individual. If one wishes to go against Christ’s divine commands, well, that individual knows what’s best for himself. Or so Francis the liberal would have us believe.
It is no coincidence that Fr. Felix rightly identifies liberalism as the natural result of Protestantism. Francis the liberal is an avid admirer of Protestantism. He has spoken time and again of his love for “good Lutherans.” How ironic that the man who is supposed to be the visible head of the Catholic Church expresses more love for Lutheranism than for Catholicism.
The manifestations of Francis’ liberalism are legion, and several of these will be discussed. But for now it suffices to say that the man is through and through a liberal. No judging is necessary here–his liberal actions speak for his liberal self.
