For All the New/Novel Doctrine in Amoris Laetitia, Let Pope Francis be Accursed.
(What does this translate to canonically? That’s the question; and now, that should be the only question)
That Pope Francis Didn’t Change Doctrine is a red herring. The pope has taught new/novel doctrine. So says Card. Schönborn and Fr. Lombardi, and now, Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernández, the alleged ghostwriter of Amoris Laetitia:
After several months of intense activity by sectors that oppose the novelties of the eighth chapter of Amoris Laetitia – minorities, but hyperactive ones – or of strong attempts to disguise them, the war seems to have reached a stalemate. It is now worth pausing to acknowledge that which is concretely what Francis leaves to us as an irreversible novelty. (My emphases)
There Is No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel—[a] 7 not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.
10 Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant[b] of Christ.[c] – Gal 1:6-10 (RSVCE)
a. After the greeting there is no commendation, as was usual, but rather strong rebuke.
b. Galatians 1:10 Or slave
c. No doubt Paul was accused of exempting Gentile converts from the law of Moses in order to curry favor.

And Canonist Dr. Edward Peters is in disbelief!

I don’t think the import of AL fn. 329 has quite sunk in yet.
[It’s spectacular misuse of GS 51 sure has, at least with me and those who are paying attention. …]
That those in supposedly ‘sanctifying’ ‘irregular situations’ who are admitted to the Eucharist include the divorced and civilly remarried who do not intend to abrogate their sexual relationship, is flagged in #298, where in footnote 329, a passage in G&S 51 which discusses the question of temporary continence within marriage, as taught by St Paul, is outrageously transposed to those not in a Christian marriage, i.e. in ‘irregular situations’, as an argument that they should not have to live as brother and sister. The intention, prefaced by a misrepresentation of St John Paul and a bare-faced lie about the meaning of G&S 51 is clear. So where is the difficulty in understanding what the Pope intends?
