Francis says Church Must Apologize to and Beg Forgiveness of “Gays” June 27, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, asshatery, disaster, episcopate, error, General Catholic, horror, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, the struggle for the Church, unbelievable BS.
I haven’t time to write now, so a link to Steve Skojec’s piece at One Peter Five. Once again, Francis turns Scripture and Tradition on its head, literally inverting good and evil, in what has become a nonstop full-frontal attack on the entire doctrinal edifice of the Church, the entire moral order, and even the natural law. Incredible. The key quotes, from his in-flight press conference when traveling from Armenia back to Rome:
The problem is a person that has a condition, that has good will and who seeks God, who are we to judge…….
……One can condemn, but not for theological reasons, but for reasons of political behavior [so Francis finds political behavior more offensive than actual sin. Gotcha]
…….I think that the Church must not only ask forgiveness – like that “Marxist Cardinal” said (laughs) – must not only ask forgiveness to the gay person who is offended. But she must ask forgiveness to the poor too, to women who are exploited, to children who are exploited for labor. She must ask forgiveness for having blessed so many weapons. The Church must ask forgiveness for not behaving many times – when I say the Church, I mean Christians!……
………..I remember from my childhood the culture in Buenos Aires, the closed Catholic culture. I go over there, eh! A divorced family couldn’t enter the house, and I’m speaking of 80 years ago. The culture has changed, thanks be to God. Christians must ask forgiveness for many things, not just these. Forgiveness, not just apologies. Forgive, Lord.
Skojec has a lot of good analysis. I hope to update this or write another post tomorrow.
At this point, I’m at a loss. Virtually everything this man thinks is a sin, really isn’t, and that which he thinks isn’t, actually is. That’s what I mean by turning the entire moral order on its head. Sodomites now occupy the commanding heights of virtue while pious souls must beg their forgiveness?!?
And that’s not all. On the same flight, Francis also declared that Lutheran Doctrine on Justification is correct and the Church shares it, which is also incredibly problematic, to say the least, in spite of the disastrous 1999 “joint declaration” that said the same.
You get the impression things are spinning out of control. Maybe I need to go back and update the post below, reaching a different conclusion. Sheesh. It just never freaking ends with this guy! And EVEN STILL the apologists are out there finding
“gold” fool’s gold in this giant pile of manure. Oh, he didn’t mean that, and look at this other thing he said, and SQUIRREL!
These apologists are greasing the skids to hell for far, far more souls than even the most spittle-flecked trad or sede vacantist. And yet we’re the bad guys, for pointing out the plain truth. What a crock.
