Here’s Why Every Argument Allowing Communion for ‘Remarried’ Utimately Fails

More on Francis' heresy. I had not realised to what subterfuges and outright lies the heretics in Rome would stopp to  in order to justify this blatant attempt by Francis to make Our Blessed and Lord out to be a liar!

From the article,
The admission of remarried divorcees to the sacraments in individual cases is based on the teaching of tradition, especially of Thomas Aquinas and the Trent Council.
It is not a novelty, but a renewal of an old tradition-Walter, Cardinal Kasper
I have seldom seen such blatant lies outside the realm of civil politics!

From Life Site News  (By the way, the title of the article, as now existing is the title I used above. The original title, as reflected in the URL was a bit more honest, 'Here's Why Every Argument Allowing Adulterers to Receive Communion...')

ROME, December 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – As “lovers of the papacy,” the critics of Amoris Laetitia wish to spare Pope Francis a fate worse than Honorius, the only pope to have been formally condemned for heresy. But those who close their eyes to the present situation are only “encouraging him down that path.” 

These remarks, by Italian philosopher and Church historian, Professor Claudio Pierantoni, have come in response to Rocco Buttiglione’s latest interview with Vatican Insider.

Rocco Buttiglione is an Italian philosopher and politician, and author of the recent book Risposte amichevoli ai critici di Amoris laetitia (Friendly Responses to Critics of Amoris Laetitia). 
In the interview with Vatican Insider’s Andrea Tornielli, one of Pope Francis’ closest media advisors, Buttiglione said there are some cases when divorced Catholics who have not obtained an annulment and are living in an sexually-active second union “can be considered to be in God’s grace” and so “deserve to receive the Sacraments.”
“It seems a shocking novelty,” Buttiglione acknowledged, “but it is a doctrine that is entirely, and I dare say rock-solidly, traditional.” 
In the interview, Buttiglione also accused critics of Amoris Laetitia of falling into “ethical objectivism” and said that those who have charged the Pope with permitting the spread of heresy, at least by omission, are guilty of “calumny, schism and heresy.”
Cardinal Walter Kasper echoed Buttiglione’s comments last Thursday in a commentary for Vatican Radio’s German edition, saying: “The admission of remarried divorcees to the sacraments in individual cases is based on the teaching of tradition, especially of Thomas Aquinas and the Trent Council.”
“It is not a novelty, but a renewal of an old tradition,” Cardinal Kasper said. The flaw in the critiques of Amoris Laetitia, he added, is “a unilateral moral objectivism that undervalues the importance of personal conscience in a moral act.” 
In his commentary, Kasper praised Pope Francis’ official endorsement of the Argentine bishops’ guidelines (by publishing them in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis) and said he hopes it will end the “tiresome” debate over Amoris Laetitia
Yet other high-ranking prelates, such as former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, have suggested Pope Francis appoint a group of cardinals to debate his critics in order to resolve the impasse.
Claudio Pierantoni, one of the lay scholars who helped shape the Filial Correction, has been a chief contributor to theological debate on the topic over the past year. Born in Rome, Pierantoni is currently a professor of Medieval Philosophy in the Philosophy Faculty of the University of Chile (Santiago). He has two PhDs: in the History of Christianity and in Philosophy. 

Here Prof. Pierantoni responds to Rocco Buttiglione’s latest interview in an exclusive report for LifeSiteNews.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (no I don't like him, but he is Pope!), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
