IT’S V-G DAY! Pope Francis proclaims it’s ok for government employees to say no to pseudo-sodo-marriages!

A little late, one might think. While he had numerous golden opportunities and the most high-profile platforms available, Pope Francis said little or nothing about pseudo-sodo-marriage or the rising persecution in this country, save for some bland, nebulous statements regarding religious liberty (which could have been the erroneous secular understanding of same, for all we know). But on the flight back from North America to Rome sweet Rome, Pope Francis finally gave a sterling, powerful, full-throated defense of those who, in conscience, simply cannot go along with the sexular pagan agenda and specifically, perform government functions that require them to pretend that two people of the same sex can be married. Hallelujah! We’re saved:
On the flight back to Rome, he was asked if he supported individuals, including government officials, who refuse to abide by some laws, such as issuing marriage licenses to gays.
“Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right,” Francis said…..
“I can’t have in mind all cases that can exist about conscientious objection but, yes, I can say that conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right,” he said, speaking in Italian.
“And if someone does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right,” he added.
Francis said conscientious objection had to be respected in legal structures. “Otherwise we would end up in a situation where we select what is a right, saying: ‘This right has merit, this one does not.'”
WOW! Couldn’t be clearer, could it?!? In fact, I’m quite certain this is the first whopping step that will see the steady roll back – nay, complete crushing – of the forces of sodomy in the world at large! I mean what possible rejoinder could there be to “Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure” and “And if someone does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right.” I understand ARCUS and New Ways Ministry are considering shutting down after this clear, unequivocal condemnation of sodomy and bold assertion of the Truth and rights of the Church as revealed by God Almighty. Heck, they’ve probably closed up shop already.
The Pope just utterly blew away the moral relativism of the satanic left by pointing it out to them in the last sentence. I’m sure they are even now in sackcloth and ashes, bewailing the fact that their “might makes right” modus operandi has now been exposed for all the world to see.
OK……I’m being a bit smart. But sorry, this is way too little and way too late. Instead of pointing to conscientious objection, Pope Francis could have just as easily, and much more powerfully, said that objection to pseudo-sodo-marriage and all the rest is an absolute right because it is founded in the Truth, while this fake marriage and all the other atrocities are evil and morally wrong. But instead he basically begged permission for some to be excused from the sexular pagan zeitgeist. It is rather nice that he at least recognizes that what the sexular left proposes is a structure entirely based on marxist power dynamics (power = right/morality), but his language is again so nebulous and weak that a) the point evades most people and b) it fails to condemn it in the stark terms demanded by the severity of the situation.
Context also comes into play. The same words said in front of Congress would have had a lot more impact than on the flight home to Rome, almost while running away, as it were. Throughout the 10 day visit to both the US and Cuba, Pope Francis had any number of golden opportunities to really strike blows in favor of the Church, the Truth, and the good of souls, but, a few relatively innocuous exceptions aside, singularly failed to do so. He seemed much more interested in stressing his political program (which happens to align with the desires of the self-anointed, false* elite in both countries) and in not making any serious waves against the global powers that be. It was quite the opposite of visits from PBXVI and PSJPII, both of whom, at least periodically, would afflict the powerful of the world. But I don’t think too many are surprised by this at this point.
And, if you really didn’t get it V-G = Victory over Gay, like V-J for Victory over Japan
* – I have no animus against an elite in any society, properly understood and construed. I wouldn’t say I’m a monarchist or a devotee of an aristocratic system, per se’, but I do believe there is a proper role for an elite in any society, be it the Church, a locality, a nation, or the world. But such elites must be dedicated, and this is critical, to the assertion of the common good, which can only be rightly done in concert with revealed Truth, that is, the Doctrine of the Faith. The vast majority of self-anointed elites today – and they do anoint themselves, whether it be by riches, media presence, media stardom, or academic credentials – not only do very little for the common good (their self-promoting PR stunts aside), but work for the positive derangement of the moral order and the promotion of what is best for souls. They are, by and large, thoroughgoing promoters of the lies of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and are not at all deserving of our respect or admiration, nor their self-anointed roles as society’s “betters” and arbiters of cultural standards.
