- Communion to divorce and remarried (a violation of Church Teaching about the immorality of sex outside of marriage & a sacrilige against the Eucharist) This is back by Cardinal Gerhard Müller's article in the L'Osservatore Romano.
- Pacifism (Teaching against Just War Doctrine a doctrine endorsed by Jesus himself (Luke 22:38)
- Universalism (in regard to Pentecostals: )
Some have stated that the tally for the election of Francis was not close enough to the majority to even elect him. One tally was:
26 Bergolio (Francis)
This tally should mean that Bertone should have been elected. However, there is one more wrinkle in this plan: Pope Benedict XVI is still the patriarch of Rome. No pope has ever been partriach of Rome without being pope.
Another factor is that Pope Benedict is still the bishop of Rome. The pope is, de facto, the bishop of Rome. So much so that anyone elected and installed as bishop of Rome is treated and named pope.
This leaves me to wonder, with the attack on the Sacrament of Marriage during the so-called synod on the Family, whether Francis is pope or not. In fact, all the cardinals and bishops in attendance rebelled against Francis and the Synod agenda of allowing Communion for the divorced and remarried (without annulments).
One wonders when the so-called papal administration will admit his lack of election or not.
There have been several anti-popes in the past, including three anti-popes opposing one pope at one period in history.
Gregory XII's Antipope Opponents:
- Pedro de Luna ("Benedict XIII") (1394-1417), antipope
- Baldassare Cossa ("John XXIII") (1400-1415), antipope
- Pietro Philarghi ("Alexander V")(1409-1410), antipope
As a final note, no pope has ever been found guilt of heresy except several antipopes, including Pedro de Luna.
