18 Heroes & Renowned Theologian Nichols’s: “Heretical Papacy may not be Tolerated” is Warning to Cdl. Burke & 20% Non-heretical Bishops that Hell awaits Cowards
Internationally renowned theologian Fr. Aidan Nichols, O.P., one of the most prolific Catholic scholarly writers in the English language according to Sophia Institute Press was joined by 18 “academics and clergy calling on the world’s bishops to admonish the Pope and publicly reject heresy or face losing the papacy” stating:
“A heretical papacy may not be tolerated.”

The 18 Catholic heroes and Dominican Fr. Nichols Open Letter Statement is not for Francis.
It is for Cardinal Raymond Burke and the apparently fairly small percentage of Catholic cardinals and bishops who still believe the Revelation of Jesus Christ to his Church and who are not heretics or compromised.
Cardinal John Henry Newman said that during the Arian Heresy Crisis 80% of the bishops were heretics which is probably similar to the number of bishops who have fallen into heresy today in the Francis Heresy Crisis.
The Francis Heresy Open Letter is not just a call to action for Cardinal Burke and the probably 20% of non-heretical bishops, but, also, a warning.
But, before we get to the warnings, the cardinals and bishops must remember that the 19 Catholic heroes are moderate orthodox mainstream scholars and clergy.
The renowned Fr. Nichols is probably the most moderate mainstream theologian of the 19 Catholic heroes whose “books include important studies of St. Thomas Aquinas; modern thinkers, including Hans von Balthasar; and the theology Pope Benedict XVI.” In fact, before Vatican II he would have been considered a moderate to extreme liberal.

Now for the warnings from heaven for Cardinal Burke and the remnant faithful Catholic bishops:
“The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”
Archbishop Fulton Sheen warned:
“Cowards go to hell. Never forget that. No matter what happens in your life never forget that basic truth.”

Pray an Our Father now for Cardinal Burke and the remnant faithful Catholic bishops to correct and admonish Pope Francis to publicly reject heresy or face losing the papacy.
