Bergoglio refuses to dialogue and he doesn't listen why scientist disagree about global warming.

Written by  Elizabeth Yore  | The Remnant 

The Pope of Dialogue has thus far slammed the bronze doors of St. Peter’s on any dialogue on the issue of global warming. (Many Catholics argue that everything else is up for dialogue with this Pope, though). 

Despite his incessant rantings about the need to dialogue, climate change is off limits. In the words of his global warming maestro, Bishop Sanchez Sorondo, climate change is elevated to “magisterium,” deserving of an apostolic exhortation and papal endorsement of the globalists’ precious Paris Climate Treaty. Francis joined the globalist cop-out chorus of the “science is settled.” His global warming architect, Bishop Sorondo scolds the global warming doubters “saying that we need to rely on coal and oil is like saying that the earth is not round. It is an absurdity dictated by the need to make money.” Sorondo also repeats the lame classic globalist slam that the deniers are funded by the oil industry.  

Wake up, there is simply no dialogue with this Vatican on any issue, not endorsed by the United Nations’ globalists and its bureaucrats.

In April 2015, the Heartland Institute, a free-market think tank located in Chicago, which refutes the political agenda of human-caused global warming, sent a delegation of experts to the Vatican to try to present the Pope with the other more scientific view on climate change. As a member of that delegation,  I saw first hand and learned that this Pope had no interest in dialoguing about man caused global warming. Francis and his Vatican had no time for the highly credentialed Heartland experts, who ranged from NASA scientists who put men on the moon to MIT scientists, climatologists and global climate science experts. 

Nevertheless, Francis chose not to dialogue.

After all, Francis would rather listen to a globalist political hack, like UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Despite his pontificating about the importance of dialogue, the pontiff’s mind was already decided having listened to population control/global warming proponents, as non scientist Jeffrey Sachs, non scientist Naomi Klein and Hans “the population of the world should be only 1 billion people” Schellnhuber, to name just a few.  Creepily, the Vatican dialogue doors were only open to population control greenies.

One of the Heartland Delegation members, E. Calvin Beisner, founder of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation also launched an Open Letter to Pope Francis endorsed by over 100 scientists and theologians. The Letter urged the Pope that climate change models “provide no rational basis to forecast dangerous human-induced global warming, and therefore no rational basis for efforts to reduce warming by restricting the use of fossil fuels or any other means.” 

Nevertheless, Francis chose again not to dialogue.

A few months later, along came his rambling eco encyclical, Laudato Si, which called Catholics to a new environmental conversion and environmental spiritualism. The 191 page apostolic exhortation included a collective mish-mash of new age sentimentality, polluted with an anti capitalism rant, and faux Ehrlichian predictive catastrophes (LS#24). Francis managed to sink to an all-time theological low by calling for the reduction of air conditioners in a papal encyclical. (LS#55) You just can’t make this stuff up!

Since the 2015 Heartland Delegation, the Pope has gone on his merry way issuing his Laudato Si, speaking at the UN in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the ParisClimate Treaty. Francis and Barack Obama hugged the same global warming tree and to the Pope’s delight Obama signed the Paris Climate Treaty. 

End of the climate change debate? Hardly....

Along comes out of the deep blue sky, Donald Trump who doesn’t share the Pope’s view on climate change and nullifies the Paris Climate Change Treaty obligations of the U.S. 

The Pope is not pleased that his newly fashioned moral doctrine of man caused global warming is not shared by the most powerful man in the world. In fact, Francis seems downright irritated that his best laid plans hatched with the elite Population Control elites at the UN were stymied by this upstart global warming sceptic, Donald Trump. 

Francis is turning up his rhetorical heat about the climate deniers, using hardly papal persuasion or propriety. In his most recent infamously morally treacherous 30,000 feet airplane press conferences, the Pope sounding like Paul Ehrlich, the disproved Population Bomb predictor:

To the North Pole, you could go. It’s very, very clear. When that news came from a university, I don’t remember from where, another came out that said, ‘We only have three years to turn back, otherwise the consequences will be terrible.’ I don’t know if three years is true or not, but if we don’t turn back we’re going down, that’s true.”
Unfortunately for the Pope, the Heartland Institute is persistent and fearless about defending the truth and still wants to engage the Pope in a dialogue about the science of global warming. The Heartland Institute’s new President Tim Huelskamp, former Congressman from Kansas, is not one to shy away from a controversial issue. Tim is used to battling for conservative causes in Congress, so he does not take lightly the scathing papal attack on scientists who doubt man caused global warming.  Huelskamp, a faithful Catholic immediately responded on twitter to the papal comments:  
surprisetruth about climate changedialogue and respect
Francis no longer enjoys a climate change free ride with Donald Trump in the White House and Tim Huelskamp at the Heartland Institute.  Tim wisely decided to challenge the Pope’s unrelenting boast to “dialogue.”  In a most powerful and persuasive request to the Pope, Huelskamp writes to Francis: 
“As a fellow Catholic, it is disappointing to hear you, once again promote the unfounded claims of climate alarmists, like Al Gore and put the enormous moral weight of your position behind bad science. This only sows confusion among many in your flock who might find it morally challenging to question the Holy Father in any matter. Since this is a question of science, not faith and morals, it is only right to offer a respectful challenge.”

Don’t hold your breath for an answer. Francis will respond to your offer to dialogue, as he did to the Dubia with utter silence and disdain. 

Finally, Francis mused on the plane press conference about how history will judge the science of climate change:  

I would say: everyone has their own moral responsibility, first. Second, if one is a bit doubtful that this is not so true, let them ask the scientists. They are very clear. They are not opinions on the air, they are very clear. And then let them decide, and history will judge their decisions.”

Of this, Francis is correct. History and God will judge his decisions. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and learn from some real scientists about the truth of climate change: 

Bergoglio welcomes to Vatican the head of Muslim group tied to financing of jihad terror

“Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa…expressed the appreciation of the Muslim world for the pope’s ‘fair positions’ regarding ‘the false claims that link extremism and violence to Islam,’ as well as for his insistence that extremism is not distinctive of Islam but is found among followers of all religions.”
In other words, he thanked the Pope for dissembling about the motivating ideology of jihad terror, which his group has been accused of financing, and for defaming other religions in an effort to whitewash Islam.

“Despite the group’s official opposition to violence and terrorism and its pursuit of intercultural dialogue, it has been the subject of several ongoing counterterrorism investigations in the U.S. related to Hamas, al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.”

Has the Pope met with any of the survivors of the Muslim persecution of Christians?
Let me be clear: I don’t object to the Pope’s meeting this man. After all, Jesus was a friend of tax collectors and sinners. But the meeting appears to have been a pointless feelgood session, probably featuring some sly dawah from al-Issa: “the two men reportedly exchanged views on a number of ‘issues of common interest’ including peace and global harmony, and discussed cooperation on issues of peaceful coexistence and the spread of love.”
The spread of love. Yes, that’s what the Muslim World League is all about.
“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

Pope Francis Welcomes Leader of Muslim World League to Vatican,” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, September 21, 2017:

Pope Francis met with the secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL) in the Vatican Wednesday, a group that has been tied to Saudi financing of jihadist terrorism and the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, who served for several years as Saudi minister of justice in Riyadh and is now secretary general of the MWL, expressed the appreciation of the Muslim world for the pope’s “fair positions” regarding “the false claims that link extremism and violence to Islam,” as well as for his insistence that extremism is not distinctive of Islam but is found among followers of all religions.
The Muslim World League is a Saudi Government-funded Islamic non-governmental organization, founded on May 18, 1962 in Mecca for the propagation of Islamic teachings. Despite the group’s official opposition to violence and terrorism and its pursuit of intercultural dialogue, it has been the subject of several ongoing counterterrorism investigations in the U.S. related to Hamas, al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
Two months after the 9/11 jihadist attacks on U.S. soil, Newsweek writer Evan Thomas reported that the Muslim World League was one of “two interrelated global charities” directly funded by the Saudi government that were used by Osama bin Laden to finance his operations. The organizations were left off the list of groups sanctioned by the United States “in order to avoid embarrassing the Saudi government,” Thomas wrote.
In 2004, Harper’s Magazine declared that the Muslim World League had been “long known to have funneled money to Al Qaeda” and is financed directly by the Saudi government. “MWL is an evangelical organization that was created to help spread Wahhabism, the Saudi brand of Islamic fundamentalism,” the article stated.
According to the New York Times, an internal, top-secret report from the Treasury Department obtained through the Freedom of Information Act stated that the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), “an offshoot of the Muslim World League,” supported terrorist organizations beginning in the early 1990s “through to at least the first half of 2006.”
The MWL has also come under fire for its alleged anti-Semitism and the Anti-Defamation League claims that the MWL has frequently been a platform for anti-Israeli rhetoric. It has also been accused of using its English-language “Journal” to spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
At their first International Islamic Conference on Dialogue in Mecca in 2008, the MWL invited Yusuf al-Qaradawi to speak. During his speech, he said he would “never sit with Jews on one platform and never hold dialogue with those Jews who have committed injustice against us and support Israel.”
On Tuesday, Al-Issa spoke at an international conference in Rome on “Tolerance in Islam” along with Joseph Levi, the former chief rabbi in Florence, and Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.
For his audience with the Pope, Al-Issa was accompanied by a delegation of seven people. The Vatican released a series of photographs of the encounter, during which the two men reportedly exchanged views on a number of “issues of common interest” including peace and global harmony, and discussed cooperation on issues of peaceful coexistence and the spread of love….

Vatican Slouching toward Wickedness!

By Judie Brown September 15, 2017

Is the Vatican Slouching toward Wickedness? 

The situation in Vatican City continues to deteriorate, as news abounds of alliances not quite in harmony with Church teaching.
Most recently we learned that “Chile’s president Michelle Bachelet, who sponsored a bid to allow legal abortion, will be one of the speakers at a November conference organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.” At the same time, we are learning more about the newly appointed members of the Pontifical Academy for Life. One of them is a defender of remarried Catholic divorcees living in adultery. Her name is Professor Anne-Marie Pelletier, a biblical theologian who also defends homosexual marriages. Pope Francis honored Pelletier by asking her write the Good Friday meditations even though she is a known public dissenter from Catholic teaching.
Sadly, Pelletier is not the only problematic appointee. New appointee Professor Nigel Biggar has said publicly that he supports abortion up to 18 weeks. And Vatican reporter Edward Pentin has mentioned several additional appointees to the Pontifical Academy for Life who dissent from the encyclical Humanae Vitae. At least one of them supports contraceptive use in some cases for Catholics.
These facts have led to, at least in my opinion, emulations of such confusing activity right here in the United States, with just one example recently happening in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Congresswoman Judy Chu, who has a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record and endorsements from both Planned Parenthood and NARAL, recently spoke at an event located at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Plaza. Though the event was not sponsored by the Church, its allowance of such a speaker on Church grounds confuses people and seems to give tacit approval. Several Catholic pro-life organizations protested, but to no avail. And as far as we could discern, Archbishop Jose Gomez had no response. Naturally Catholics are concerned and confused.
When official Vatican entities become platforms for debate and discussion of differences rather than defenders of fundamental moral teachings of the Church, we should not be surprised that things can go sideways in any diocese or Catholic university—or anywhere. It underscores the point Archbishop Charles Chaput made when he said, after a recent Synod of Bishops, that “Confusion is of the devil.”
And while the faithful have to cope with this scenario, we surely do not have to remain quiet about it. All these matters are in God’s hands, but we can take action in our own little corners of the world.
When interacting with our family and friends, many of whom are disturbed by these ebbs and flows in the Church, we can shine light in the darkness by praying. Remember the words spoken by Christ to His disciples: “For where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them.”
Furthermore, we are also called to be watchmen, like those the prophet Ezekiel mentioned in chapter 33. This means we must reassure our brothers and sisters that we find our refuge in Christ during these troubling times.
As my dear friend Christine Vollmer recently stated:
We are headed for very rough waters and we must not lose heart. Our Lord is alive and we must be faithful to Him and His teaching during this time of trial. Young priests and laity, and the many faithful movements, must hold firmly to the Truth, united in prayer and action until this storm is calmed. Jesus, I trust in You!
Trusting in Christ, we can speak the truth with love and charity, and we can make sure our children are educated in the ways of the Lord according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the great teaching of heroic popes like St. John Paul II. We can become individual lighthouses where others can come for reassurance that nothing is lost except that which we choose to surrender.
And surrender is not in our vocabulary.
At a time like this, we must remember the words of Pope Benedict XVI: “To defend the truth, to articulate it with humility and conviction, and to bear witness to it in life are therefore exacting and indispensable forms of charity.”
Perhaps the Vatican is slouching toward wickedness, but we are dashing toward Christ and clinging to His truth as we share it with our family and friends. We will not allow this confusion to reign.

"Rome Will Lose The Faith and Become the Seat of Anti-Christ" 

‘Official persecution’ of faithful Catholics under Bergoglio dictatorship has begun: scholar

CHILE, September 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- An “official persecution of faithful Catholics has now begun under the Francis pontificate, wrote a Catholic scholar in a recently published article. 

“The official punishment of a Catholic thinker for the sole crime of defending an orthodox doctrine,” wrote Professor Claudio Pierantoni, signifies the “beginning of the official persecution of orthodoxy within the Church.”
Pierantoni is a scholar of patristics and professor of medieval philosophy at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago. 
He wrote in defense of Dr. Josef Seifert, who earlier this month was removed from a Catholic university in Spain by Archbishop Javier Martínez Fernández after raising some questions about the Pope’s 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia
The article was published Sept. 9 in the German magazine of philosophy and theology Aemaet.
Pierantoni said Seifert was removed from the university after highlighting a single sentence in the Pope’s Exhortation that, explained Pierantoni, Seifert saw as a “potential source of the destruction of the whole moral teaching of the Church and even of all natural Law.”
Seifert had argued in his article that if Pope Francis believes that adultery — to quote the exhortation — “is what God himself is asking” of couples in “irregular” situations, then there is nothing stopping any other intrinsically evil act, such as contraception and homosexuality, from eventually being justified.
It was because of this one statement that Seifert wondered if the Exhortation was not a ticking “theological atomic bomb” that had the capacity to destroy all Catholic moral teaching. 

In his removal of Seifert, Archbishop Martínez stated that the article “damages the communion of the Church, confuses the faith of the faithful, and sows distrust in the successor of Peter, which, in the end, does not serve the truth of faith, but, rather, the interests of the world.”

Archbishop Martínez Fernández | Dr. Josef Seifert
Vatican expert Sandro Magister commented that the removal of Seifert from his teaching post might go down in history as “perhaps the most dramatic legacy of Amoris Laetitia.”
Pierantoni criticized the Archbishop for his statement which he said “displays a truly surprising naiveté…of the present situation of the Church.”
“First of all, in order to affirm that someone is 'damaging the communion of the Church' in some matter, one must previously assume that some kind of communion, regarding the subject we are discussing, actually exists in the Church,” he said. 
“Now, what bishop, what priest, what educated and informed person in the Catholic Church today is unaware that there exists no subject at present more disputed and submerged in such horrifying confusion as this one?” he added.
Pierantoni said that while confusion within the Church already existed prior to the release of the Exhortation, with its publication “relativistic currents of thought and ‘situation ethics,’ which the previous three Popes had tried hard to stop, have now surreptitiously entered the pages of an official papal document.”
“Things have thus reached the point that one of the most outstanding and lucid defenders of the previous Magisterium during more than three decades, personally supported and encouraged in his philosophical enterprise by St. John Paul II as one of his most precious allies in the defence of the infallible moral doctrine of the Church, Josef Seifert, is now dismissed and treated as an enemy of the communion of the same Church,” he said. 
Pierantoni also criticized the Archbishop’s claim that Seifert’s article “sows distrust toward the successor of Peter.”
“Archbishop Martínez seems to be unaware…[that] by allowing into an official document affirmations that are contradictory to essential points of the previous Magisterium, and of the millenary doctrine of the Church, Pope Francis has directly thrown upon himself the utter distrust of an immense number of faithful Catholics. The disastrous consequence is that distrust is thereby thrown, in the minds of many, upon the Papacy itself,” he said. 
“So, what is the real cause of this distrust? Can it really be Josef Seifert’s solid and consistent effort to oppose the error of situation ethics, a commitment to which he has devoted almost his entire life and that of the institution he founded, in faithful service to the Church and to the Word of God? Or must it not be due to the fact that this very error, contrary to the whole Christian tradition (a tradition so recently reaffirmed in an Encyclical as solemn and important as [Pope St. John Paul II’s] Veritatis Splendor) has now been allowed to creep into a papal document?” he added.
Following the lead of Cardinal Raymond Burke, Pierantoni argued that Amoris Laetitia (AL) does not require assent from Catholics because it “can in no way be considered true Magisterium.”
Pope Francis, he said, states clearly in the opening of his Exhortation that there are — to quote the Exhortation — “various ways of interpreting some aspects” of the teaching and “drawing certain consequences from it” (AL 3).
“Now, this is of course very different from anything that could be considered a ‘magisterial teaching’: not only does a statement like this preclude any attempt to considering AL’s doctrine an infallible teaching, but it also precludes considering it even as authentic magisterium, at least in those parts that present novelties or even contradictions to the previous Magisterium,” he said. 
Pierantoni argued that it is because the Pope knows that his Exhortation is not magisterial teaching that he has refused to correct various bishops groups around the world who have interpreted his work in contradictory ways. For instance, the bishops in Germany allow communion for adulterers based on their interpretation of the Exhortation, while the bishops across the boarder in Poland do not – based on their interpretation.
Pierantoni said that Archbishop Martínez is “officially persecuting a most orthodox Catholic thinker” on the “false” assumption that the Exhortation is magisterial teaching when the Pope’s own words suggest otherwise. 
He said Seifert’s removal was not simply “discrimination,” but an “official persecution based on a papal document.”
“It would be hard, in modern Church history, to find another example of this. We would have rather to go back to the ancient christological controversies, when entire and vital sections of the Church – sometimes including the Papacy – were captured by heresy and thus persecuted the orthodox,” he said. 
“By officially punishing a Catholic thinker for the sole crime of being orthodox, he unwittingly confirms, and throws into clear relief, the practical schism we are suffering from in the Catholic Church, because of grave errors that have managed to creep into a papal document,” he added.
Pierantoni concluded that a “faithful defender of orthodoxy” such as Seifert could not be punished as if he were a “menace to ecclesiastical communion and an enemy of the Pope” without Pope Francis himself “actively contributing to the confusion between the Magisterium and his private opinions.”
“In the light of this, it is all the more necessary and urgent that some kind of ‘formal,’ or, maybe better, filial’ correction to the Pope, finally appear. And may God grant the Holy Father an open heart to hear it,” he concluded. 


Fired Catholic philosopher: Pope Francis’ teaching could ‘lead many souls…to hell’​
Archbishop fires renowned Catholic philosopher for questioning Pope Francis​
Amoris Laetitia is a ticking ‘atomic bomb’ set to obliterate all Catholic morality: philosopher​


Bishop Schneider Accuses: “Francis Is Tolerating Obvious Errors” The validity of the commandments and of the entire moral law is at stake in the Church according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

Talking to he asserted that “the Pope is himself tolerating a wide dissemination of obvious errors of faith and of grave abuses of the sacraments (like the admittance of unrepentant adulterers to the sacraments).

Schneider compares this to a ship in a stormy sea, in which the captain ignores the obvious dangers, while the majority of his officers wrap themselves in silence, saying: “All is just fine on the sinking ship”. The few officers, who raise their voices, are grotesquely and unjustly criticized by their colleagues.

Schneider names the four Dubia-Cardinals and the Austrian philosopher Josef Seifert who was sacked for his criticism on the controversial Amoris Laetitia.

Seifert's dismissal by Granada Archbishop Javier Martínez Fernández is according to Schneider “not only unjust, but represents ultimately an escape from truth, a refusal of an objective debate and of dialogue”.

Schneider recalls that freedom of theological speech has been proclaimed for decades in the Church, but is denied to those who raise their voices in defense of the truth. This situation reminds him of his youth in the Soviet Union.

Theologian predicts how Bergoglio’ teaching could be used to allow contraception

ROME, September 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- Re-interpreting the Church’s teaching against contraception in light of Pope Francis’s teaching on marriage and family “would cause massive doctrinal and pastoral damage” to the Church, a moral theologian in Rome is warning. 
Father George Woodall, who teaches moral theology at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, outlined what he called “grave” concerns about a papal commission recently set up by Pope Francis that will, he says, “re-examine Humanae vitae (HV) in the light of Amoris laetitia.” The article was published on the National Catholic Register September 12. 
Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae taught that “each and every marriage act must remain open to the transmission of human life,” calling the use of contraception (including the pill, condom, withdrawal, and other methods) “intrinsically wrong.” The encyclical celebrates its 50th anniversary next year. 
Woodall listed the “precise points of doctrine” in the encyclical that he suspects the commission will re-examine. These include: 
  • “The principle of the inseparability of the unitive and procreative meanings of the conjugal act (HV, n. 12), stated by Paul VI to be the basis for the condemnation of contraception (HV, n. 14).”
  • “The teaching that each and every conjugal act must remain open to procreation (HV, n. 11).”
  • “The condemnation of contraception as intrinsically morally disordered and hence incapable of being justified even for a good intention in pressing circumstances on the basis either that it might be the lesser evil or that it might partake of the goodness of those conjugal acts before and/ or after, during the whole of the married life, which had been or would be open to procreation, the reason being that what is intrinsically immoral may never be done even for a good intention (HV, n. 14).”
  • “The fact that this teaching, as the constant teaching of the Magisterium on this matter, is unchanged and unchangeable because the Magisterium has no power to decide what should be true, but only to proclaim what is true (HV, nn. 6, 18).”
Woodall predicted that if the commission were to use the moral principles and language found in Pope Francis 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, it would recommend that Humanae vitae “should be rejected or, more likely, should not be interpreted legalistically.”
The commission would likely say, he said, that the encyclical should not be “imposed as burdens on couples unable to bear them by those wishing to cast stones at people in difficulties, but should be presented to them as mere 'ideals', which married couples should seek to fulfill, but which they might not be able always to fulfill in pressing circumstances and which, for a good intention — and perhaps through discernment, assisted by a pastor in the light of their unique circumstances — they might violate, set aside, or interpret creatively,” he said. 
Just as the “pastoral approach” in Amoris Laetitia was used to suggest that the 6th commandment against adultery does not apply to some couples in “irregular” situations, so too in this case, said Woodall, a similar approach would be used to suggest that Humanae vitae does not “really apply to some couples because, in their circumstances they could not be expected to abide by them.”
Woodall said that if such an outcome from the commission were to be “incorporated in a formal magisterial teaching,” a “new pastoral crisis” would be unleashed.
“Such an outcome of the commission, were it to be endorsed and enacted in formal magisterial teaching…would cause massive doctrinal and pastoral damage because the Pope would be contradicting previous popes and “centuries-old tradition of Catholic moral doctrine of moral theology,” he said. 
“Were any decision, as a result of the commission, to call [the Church’s teaching against contraceptive use] into question expressly or implicitly, in my view, it would do untold damage to the Church's magisterium, to respect for that Magisterium by Catholics and by others, to the capacity of the magisterium to teach effectively, to the Church's moral doctrine in general, and to the mission of the Church to combat the moral relativism that is the plague of the contemporary world,” he said. 
Woodall said that the Magisterium “cannot invent moral truth” but is “bound by, the gospel of Christ, revelation, dogmatically defined truths and constantly taught doctrines which have been proposed definitively or as exception-less for the universal Church.”
Woodall’s concerns echo those of Catholic philosopher Dr. Josef Seifert. In an article published last month, Seifert argued that if Pope Francis is right in Amoris Laetitia that committing the intrinsically evil act of adultery is  — to quote the exhortation — “what God himself is asking” of couples in “irregular” situations, then there is nothing stopping any other intrinsically evil act, such as contraception, from being justified.
Woodall’s concerns are also shared by Cardinal Raymond Burke, who told The Wanderer last month that no matter what the Papal commission determines, the teaching found in Humanae Vitae cannot be changed. 
“It is the infallible teaching of the Church that contraception is intrinsically disordered, that to separate the unitive and procreative aspects of the marital act is always and everywhere wrong,” he said at that time. 
“If this teaching is not upheld, not only is there a violation of the conjugal act in its essence, but there would then be an opening for all kinds of immoral activity involving our sexual faculties while people would justify sinful genital acts,” he added.
