"You're a heretic!" Greek Orthodox bishops call out Pope Francis

Unafraid to call out the most powerful religious leader in the world, two Greek Orthodox Metropolitan Bishops have had the audacity to say openly what many Catholics -- not just traditionalists -- are thinking. Pope Francis is a heretic!

Who, you may ask, are these non-Catholics to say so? Understand, please, that the Greek Orthodox Church is formally schismatic because they do not accept the decree of Vatican I (the Council of 1870) on the papacy. However, the Greek Orthodox Church is part of the catholic and apostolic Church and is not heretical.

His Eminence, the Metropolitan of Piraeus, Seraphim, and His Eminence, the Metropolitan of Dryinoupolis, Andrew, both of the Church of Greece, declared the Pope (or co-Pope or whatever he is) a heretic because of his false teaching -- neither catholic nor apostolic -- during his first year in office. They wrote a harsh 89-page letter dated 10 April 2014 to the "Head of State of the Vatican City," asking Francis to renounce his "Satanic pride" in teaching and/or supporting five serious heresies:

Syncretism -- the false teaching traditionally condemned by the Catholic and Apostolic Church, that "we all worship the same god, all gods are equal," which the Second Vatican Council repackaged as interfaith "ecumenism". See footnote for comment on Francis' syncretistic sin, committed on Pentecost Sunday.

Homophilia -- a refusal to denounce homosexual acts, which are condemned in the Bible as one of the Four Sins that Cry to Heaven for retribution.

Judaizing -- false teaching on the Jews that departs from the Bible.

Sexual immorality -- Francis' failure to take firm and public action against his clergy's perpetrating grave sins such as paedophilia, likewise condemned in the Bible.

Modernism -- his wholehearted embrace of the Modernist errors of Vatican II, condemned in 1907 by Pope St. Pius X in his encyclical Pascendi.

The letter is addressed to Pope Francis with "sincere love", motivated by the need to remind heretics to return to the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. Let us add our prayers to those of the two Metropolitans.

Footnote on the Pope's syncretistic sin: On June 8th, Pentecost Sunday ("the Birthday of the Church"), the Pope astonished and scandalized true Catholics by, for the first time in history, presiding over Muslim prayers and readings from the Qu'ran, in the presence of Muslim (and Jewish) unbelievers, in the Vatican itself! Immediately after so doing, Francis was stricken ill, and had to cancel all meetings scheduled for the following day.

Can we doubt that God is trying to teach the Holy Father that the heresy of syncretism will not go unpunished? Syncretism is a grave sin, condemned by the Catholic Church right up until Vatican II, which repackaged it as "ecumenism". This heresy, which Francis now embraces and promotes, holds that we all worship the same god, and all gods are equal. This is contrary to dogma -- that which the Church has always taught and proclaims to be forever true -- for which the Pope should beg forgiveness of the One True God, whose One True Church which Francis so misleads.
