Saying nothing about abortion soon becomes tacit approval.
When the actual comments of Francis are looked at, it actually seems of concern that he adopted the term “gay” (he was speaking in Italian and that language does have a cognate word for homosexual so there was no need to import “gay” which is a sin-coined, sugar coated misnomer for rejoicing in iniquity). But that might be a one time slip up. Also no he didn’t say it was acceptable for a ministering member of clergy to be in homosexual sin. It sounds a lot here like he is in fact accepting the truth of the gospel promise to cleanse from sin.
Here’s another article just posted about the Pope’s comments. In the first sentence, it links to a Daily Mail article with more information.
The Pope may be light in the loafers, just sayin’.
...pro-life groups will have a hard time to explain about the urgency and importance of the pro-abortion bill...[and]...the Catholic National Conference of Bishops of Brazil will have innocent blood in its hands.as you posted last week
The pope is not going to embarass the leader welcoming him into the country and make political hay - that will make no one reverse course or listen to his sincere input.
The pope would counsel her privately and not even bring up the issue, so she could steep in his guidence with as little political threat as possible.
Then he said to the youth....go into the streets, create a mess, freak out your diocese, start a revolution. He told bishops and priests - get out of your churches and get into the streets.
Yea, he missed a moment? I don’t think so. The Brazilians must take this fight to their own leadership....if the leadership forces it on them.
We in the US never in large enough numbers made a mess and took to the streets. We waited for our bishops and priests to martyr themselves, while they were busy counseling the post-abortive in the pews and still are.
He’s not on the same page as God, Who calls homosexuality an “abomination.” Leviticus 18:22, 20:13.
I note that your "recommended reading" links point to your blog.
You are either the world's foremost authority.. or a pimp seeking hits.
Did he say “gay” or “people with same sex attraction”.
So the Pope is all right with gay priests. Seems like he has sold out on his beliefs.
