Pope Francis has kicked conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and stripped him of his salary after he criticized the pontiff’s pro-LGBTQ+ stance.
By this point, it is obvious that the Roman Catholic Church, started by the Caesars during the time of the closing days of the Roman Empire, is taking a page from the book of Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known as Caligula, and transitioning into being LGBTQ+ affirming under the leadership of Pope Francis. US Cardinal Raymond Burke just found out the hard way that going against the pope’s affirming mandates comes at a cost.
“For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:17,18 (KJB)
The Roman Catholic Church is not part of the falling away, because it has been a counterfeit from its inception in 325 AD. They’ve never taught Bible doctrine so there is nothing for them to ‘fall away’ from. What they are doing right now is preparing themselves to be ruled over by the coming Antichrist, by gathering all religions into one in anticipation of his soon arrival.

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Francis has decided to punish Burke by revoking his right to a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary in the second such radical action against an American prelate this month, according to two sources. It is understood Francis told a meeting of the heads of Vatican offices last week that he was moving against Burke because he was a source of ‘disunity’ in the church, said one of the participants at the November 20 meeting.
Burke’s privileges of having a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary as a retired cardinal have been removed because he was using the benefits against the church, said another person who was subsequently briefed on the pope´s measures. Both insiders spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to reveal the details.
Burke has not received any notification of measures being taken, his secretary said in a text message Tuesday to The Associated Press.
Burke, a 75-year-old canon lawyer whom Francis had fired as the Vatican’s high court justice in 2014, has become one of the most outspoken critics of the pope, his outreach to LGBTQ+ Catholics and his reform project to make the church more responsive to the needs of ordinary faithful. Twice, Burke has joined other conservative cardinals in issuing formal questions to the pontiff, known as ‘dubia,’ asking him to clarify questions of doctrine that upset conservatives and traditionalists.
In the first, they asked Francis to clarify his outreach to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics, and Francis never replied. In the second, they asked whether same-sex couples could receive church blessings – and received a conditional maybe in response.
Then, on the eve of Francis´ big meeting of bishops last month, known as a synod, Burke presided over a counter-synod of sorts just steps away from St. Peter´s Square. There, Burke delivered a stinging rebuke of Francis´ vision of ‘synodality’ as well as his overall reform project for the church.
‘It´s unfortunately very clear that the invocation of the Holy Spirit by some has the aim of bringing forward an agenda that is more political and human than ecclesial and divine,’ Burke told the conference titled ‘The Synodal Babel.’
Burke has always defended his actions as being of service to the church and the papacy, saying it was his obligation as a cardinal and bishop to uphold church teaching and correct errors. READ MORE
