Leading Dutch Catholics are petitioning their bishops to warn Pope Francis about his "destructive" teachings and urge him to not commit "serious errors" against the Faith, reported Radio Maria Nederland as translated by Catholic news agency on April 9.

As the news agency stated, "[P]rominent Dutch Catholics issued a petition to their bishops against the "destructive polities' of Pope Francis. Intellectuals and priests have signed the petition, among them the famous psychologist Gerard Aardweg and [Physics] Professor Wilhelmus Witteman of the Technical University of Twente."

The petition reportedly list some of the scandalous actions of Pope Francis, including his publication Amoris Laetitia, which allows for couples living in adultery to receive Communion at Mass; his support for "the pro-death politicians Emma Bonino and Lilianne Ploumen"; his support for female deacons, married priests, and contraception; his praise for Martin Luther; and his deal-making with the Communist Chinese to recognize the fasle church there, the Catholic Patriotic Association

"The petition asks the Dutch bishops to warn Francis in this 'moment of confusion and uncertainty' not to commit 'serious errors' against the Faith," reported
