Q&A: Ann, if Pope Benedict is still the Pope, why does it even matter?

Q&A: Ann, if Pope Benedict is still the Pope, why does it even matter?
Q: Ann, even if Pope Benedict is still the Pope, why does it even matter?
A: If Pope Benedict is the one and only living Pope (which he is), that means that Jorge Bergoglio is NOT the Pope, and never has been. Every heretical utterance and act that Antipope Bergoglio has made is completely outside the domain of the Papacy, and leaves no stain of scandal on the Papacy, and Antipope Bergoglio has zero participation in the Magisterium. The words, “Well, Pope Francis said…” can never be uttered and used as a cudgel against Christ and His Church for all eternity, because there is no “Pope Francis”, only the usurper fraud Antipope Bergoglio.
“Pope Francis” is not real. “Pope Francis” is a lie. The REAL matters. The Truth matters. Who the Pope is, and who the Pope isn’t matters. If the identity of the Pope were irrelevant, then the Papacy itself would be irrelevant, because it would be invisible. The Pope is the Vicar of Christ, and therefore the visible head and nexus of unity of the Church Militant. Unity with the Pope is the standard of schism. Therefore, who the Pope is matters.
Because the Pope has the authority that Christ has directly given to him, the very Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, the very power to bind and loose, that authority can never, ever be ascribed to a man who does not actually possess it, and does not therefore enjoy the supernatural protection guaranteed by Christ to Peter and all of Peter’s successors. To falsely ascribe Petrine authority to a man who is not the Pope is to hand Satan the ability to cause total chaos, and to cause countless souls to be deceived and scandalized unto eternal damnation.
The greatest act of violence that can be done to the Papacy is not to deny that the Papacy exists, but rather to call a man who is not Peter, “Peter”.
The Truth matters, and it matters because the Truth is a Person, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To deny that the Truth matters is to deny that God matters. Our Lord is the Way, the TRUTH and the Life, and ONLY through Him, with Him and in Him can we see the Father. There is no lie in God. There is no error in God. There is no unreality in God, who is reality. “I AM WHO AM. Before Abraham was, I AM.”
To love God is to love Truth. To love Truth is to love God.
Indifference to Truth is indifference to God.
Indifference to God is indifference to Truth.
The Third Glorious Mystery of the Rosary is the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles and Mary at Pentecost. The fruit of this Mystery is love of God, zeal, which illuminates this question.
I hope this helps.

Ultraviolet Q&A: Is there one or two popes shown in the picture below?
So. You're one of those people. I should have guessed. A: How many presidents do you see in this photo, Rafal? Choose your answer carefully

since the man closest to the camera is Richard Nixon who resigned while serving in office.
Ultraviolet do you know the distinction between a pope and a president?
@Rafał_Ovile Q: Do you know what the term "analogy" means?
Ultraviolet similarities are not identicals. Respond if you know the answer. If not don't waste our time.
@Rafał_Ovile Go look up the definition of "analogy". It is based on the very similarities you mention, not identicals. You already choose to waste your own time with these frivolous attempts to argue about Pope Benedict XVI's resignation because Canon law contradicts you.

Pictures of Benedict and Francis sitting next to each other is not Canon law. The law provides a means for a Pope to resign. …More

Pictures of Benedict and Francis sitting next to each other is not Canon law. The law provides a means for a Pope to resign. Francis did so following the law. A new Pope was elected. The end.

Everything else from you is just noise.... the unhappy braying of a stubborn donkey who doesn't like the flavor of the new brand of oats he must eat.

How many popes you ask? How many presidents I ask.

"Respond if you know the answer" Rafal.

If you can't, then don't complain like an old woman about your time getting wasted. You waste enough of your time already just because Benedict XVI did something without your personal approval.
Ultraviolet what is the purpose of Catholic dialogue?
@Rafał_Ovile Do you genuinely believe your whining about Benedict XVI's resignation is a valid form of dialogue? Catholic or otherwise?

A dialogue in this context implies a conversation aimed at solving a problem. First, there isn't any "problem" to solve. Benedict XVI resigned according to Church law. Francis was elected to replace him.

Second and more importantly, you're not interested in a conversation or a dialogue.

All you want to do is argue with anyone who disagrees with your foolish, invalid interpretation of Canon law.

Now the funny part is how you're going about trying to do that. Especially doing that with me. You waved your school debating-club Latin at me and discovered that was a bad mistake. You ran like a frightened child when I offered exactly the kind of formal debate you supposedly wanted.

You're a third-rate debator. I'm surprised because usually Europeans are better-educated than Americans and offer some very insightful arguments. They don't make the sloppy mistakes you do.

So now it's "count the people in the picture by their profession". And you lost again! :D

Now it's a vague discussion about "the purpose of Catholic dialogue". Whatever you think the purpose of Catholic dialogue is, it will not change the fact Benedict XVI willingly chose to resign and followed the requirements stipulated by Canon law governing the Catholic Church.

No amount of your "dialogue" or your publicity pictures will ever change that.
Ultraviolet problem solving is not the purpose of Catholic dialogue. For this reason you are overwhelmed by accidentals... and unable to find your way out.
It is clear you do not know the definition of "dialogue" as the word is used in English Rafał_Ovile Out of Christian charity, here is a link.
www.grammar.com/dialogue_vs._dialog

But I can see you would rather discuss "dialogue" instead of how many US Presidents are in the picture, since one of them resigned in office. Good luck with your English studies!
Benedict isn't the pope anymore, no matter how dearly so many of us wish he still were. He resigned and has even defended his resignation.
