God bless ya. I don't think, look, the same Bible that tells us, that teaches us well about the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, 'Bravo.'

The Magisterium (esp Papal)
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
Mt 16:18-19
So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.
Jn 21:15-17
Pope Francis warned that the Catholic Church had become so focused on abortion, gay marriage and other social issues that it risks overshadowing its pastoral mission, threatening to bring down the church "like a house of cards.
Reasons for Concern
If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. “But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. “He who hates Me hates My Father also.
Jn 15:18-20
Traditional Enemies
Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.
Jn 12:42-43
Reasons for Concern
Major Concerns
not questionable aberrations...
Who am I to judge?
But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.

Concern of Faithful
We can do so because:
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For prior to the coming of certain men from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, fearing the party of the circumcision. The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy. But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in the presence of all, “If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?
Gal 2:11-14
Concern of Faithful
We can do so because:
John XXII taught that the blessed do not see God until after the General Judgement. He was opposed by theologians of University of Paris, cardinals, bishop and kings.
1983 Code of Canon Law: "according to the knowledge, competence, and prestige which they possess...
have the right and even
at times the

to the sacred pastors their opinion
on matters which pertain to the
good of the Church
and to make their

to the rest of the
Christian faithful
..." (CCC 212:3)
Catholics love him,
pray for him
& look to him for leadership

The Gospel is handed on in two ways
The Pope
Orally (Sacred Tradition)
Writing (Sacred Scripture)
continued in the apostolic succession (Magisterium). CCC §§76-77
A. Sacred Scripture is the speech of God as it is put down in writing under the breath of the Holy Spirit. CCC §81
B. Tradition transmits in its entirety the Word of God which has been entrusted to the apostles by Christ the Lord and the Holy Spirit. It transmits it to the successors of the apostles so that, enlightened by the Spirit of truth, they may faithfully preserve, expound, and spread it abroad by their preaching. CCC §81
C. The Magisterium or Teaching Office
i. The task of giving an authentic interpretation of the Word of God, whether in its written form or in the form of Tradition, has been entrusted to the living, teaching office of the Church alone. Its authority in this matter is exercised in the name of Jesus Christ. This means that the task of interpretation has been entrusted to the bishops in communion with the successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome. CCC §85
ii. Yet this Magisterium is not superior to the Word of God, but is its servant. It teaches only what has been handed on to it. At the divine command and with the help of the Holy Spirit, it listens to this devotedly, guards it with dedication, and expounds it faithfully. All that it proposes for belief as being divinely revealed is drawn from this single deposit of faith. CCC §86
C. The Magisterium or Teaching Office
iii. The Church’s Magisterium exercises the authority it holds from Christ to the fullest extent when it defines dogmas, that is, when it proposes, in a form obliging the Christian people to an irrevocable adherence of faith, truths contained in divine Revelation or also when it proposes, in a definitive way, truths having a necessary connection with these. CCC §88
C. The Magisterium or Teaching Office:
We now have Cardinals openly opposing Cardinals, Bishops openly opposing Bishops.
All the leading priests and the people likewise were exceedingly unfaithful, following all the abominations of the nations; and they polluted the house of the Lord which he had hallowed in Jerusalem...
2 Chron 36:14-17
Because of our faith in and love for Christ and His Church, we ask with St Peter: Lord, to whom shall we go?
The Francis Effect is to disarm us, so we must stay in the Church and stay armed. If our shepherds have come down like Aaron to join in the Bacchanalia, then we need to be the Levites.
We must study.
We must know our Faith! We must be familiar with the Scriptures, know the constant teaching of the Church, and understand the principles of moral theology.
Third, we must transmit the Faith
Third, we must transmit the Faith by teaching and sharing within the family, by practising and praying together as a family
Authentic Catholic Voice
Fourth, we must support true and authentic Catholic speakers and Organisations
Prepare ourselves for martyrdom
We must prepare ourselves for martyrdom. In the Nobis quoque of the Roman Canon we pray: To us, also, your servants, who, though sinners, hope in your abundant mercies, graciously grant some share and fellowship with your holy Apostles and Martyrs: with John the Baptist, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas... and all your Saints; admit us, we beseech you, into their company, not weighing our merits, but granting us your pardon, through Christ our Lord
What should we do?
First, we must pray. The battle is the Lord’s.
But watch at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of man.
