CNN Hammers Catholic Church to Change Teaching on Gay Marriage, Birth Control
Media Research Center ^ | 2/13/2013 8:31 AM ET | By Matt Hadro

Posted on 02/13/2013 6:36:24 AM PST by ExxonPatrolUs

On Monday night, CNN's Erin Burnett badgered the Catholic church to change its doctrine and accept birth control, gay marriage, and women priests. All day long on Monday, CNN asked if the church was going to change with the times but Burnett was blatant in her push for liberalization of doctrine.

"Isn't it time for the church, which is supposed to be an inclusive, generous, giving organization, to move ahead on gay rights?" she asked her guest a loaded question. When he answered no, she hit back, "Even if they [gay people] love each other, isn't the Catholic Church supposed to be about love?"

I think that in their “perfect” world, both the constitution and Bible would be re-written.

Erin Burnett has a rock-hard body but a brain made of brie.

This should be a no-brainer, even for her.

isn't the Catholic Church supposed to be about love?"

No, it's about God and Him expressing His love for us by providing a way back into fellowship with Him and out of the punishment for our inherent sin.

When CNN starts setting Church Doctrine the end times are here. Plan for a long trip.

Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

In no way is it an act of love to encourage folks to commit themselves, shamelessly and unrepentantly, to a life of sin.

Yes Erin is a cute little cup cake - white frosting, but maybe a bit of devil’s food inside. Maybe she’ll apologize for this like after her calling George Bush a monkey?

Well, I guess if my niece “loves” a dreg of society who’s been in jail, gets drunk all the time, has 2 bastard children already, we should be all about love and let them have at it.

As well, since homos are all about freedom in marriage, all cousins and siblings should be allowed to marry when that’s what they feel.

I think I may love Erin. Do I need her permission to be married to her? It’s all about the love, right?

Next week, CNN will take on the role of reforming Islam regardng its treatment of women, children, and homosexuals

Erin will be joined by an unveiled lesbian imam-wannabe and they both will be joined by CNN bodyguards assigned to prevent them from being decapitated when they leave the studio

"Isn't it time for the church, which is supposed to be an inclusive, generous, giving organization, to move ahead on gay rights?"

This person should start their own Church or attend one that adheres to the acceptance of anal sex, oral sex (With the male "finishing"), synthetic phallic/female orifice sex etc. as equal to male-female consummation in the eyes of their god.

The Biblical God says He created man and woman to sexually please eachother and produce offspring. Then He suggested that society functions more smoothly if a man and woman stay in a monogamous relationship until one partner dies. Next, He sees male pole smokers and anal abusers as offensive. Does Erin want a Church that worships this God to enter into the realm of convoluted hypocrites? Just how idiotic can one person be? Apparently CNN is filled to the brim with idiocy and moral decay.

Shows how stupid they are. The Church preaches the natural law, which is the will of the creator embedded in human nature. The natural law can not be voted on. The Church can not change it. No pope can make a pronouncement to change it.

The Church can change things like laws about priests marrying, but it can not allow gay “marriage.”

The natural law can not be voted on. The Church can not change it.

Exactly. Every time a new Pope comes in we will always get this, "I hope this time we get a Pope who will change X, Y, and Z". - Well, he can't and won't.

The Catholic Church is based on universal truths. What was true in the beginning of time, will be true at the end.

The problem is that most liberal morality is conditional or temporal. The concept of a universal truth is beyond them.

“The natural law can not be voted on.”
Correct, But some do so anyway.

“Isn’t it time for the church, which is supposed to be an inclusive, generous, giving organization, to move ahead on gay rights?”
You don’t compromise with the devil.

” change its doctrine and accept birth control, gay marriage, and women priests”

There’s a name for a church that makes these changes: Episcopalian.

All....Does anybody remember what the Democrats did at their convention ??? First they eliminated any mention of the word GOD...and when they thought twice about doing that they reintroduced the resolution what happened ? They booed God....That resolution was rammed through just like the Affordable Health Care Act ...
Was that fact used in any of the material Rove’s RINOS spewed forth during the 2012 Romney or US senate races his group of GOPES (Government Ofthe People Elite Snobs) used on their hit list ? I like using that acronym because it rhymes with dopes.

Noooo ! They could have used that episode to point out how far to the left the democrat party has hyphenated into; Demo-Coms ...Instead well we don’t like Aikin ...He said what ? OMG OMG he’s unqualified ...If there was a chance he would have been burned at the stake by Rove’s RINOS and the so called “conservative “ talkies spouting Rove’s tripe.

WHAT YOU DIDN’T HEAR WAS THIS ....Well at least he believes in something like the ten commandments. Including Thou shalt not steal and doesn’t believe that getting elected to office doesn’t give you a license to do steal ... Which his opponent seems to have done rather well since being in office. The same thing with Mourdock.

Now his bunch seems to be saying if you hold a religious view don’t run for office... We’re gonna save the Republican party ....to be finished off by Obama and the hypenated democrats..
Roves RINOS wrong for America and wrong for the Republican party...

Democrats and ROVE’S RINOS
GOD DENIERS AND CONGENITAL LIARS
ARE REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH INCITERS/
FOR FIRST YOUR MONEY THEN YOUR GUNS
AND BE DEFENSELESS WHEN CROOKS COME

It’s time to get government out of Our face Our religion and and Our pocketbook

On the face (REVERSE SIDE)or below the slogan you can put the name of the candidate you favor and the election dates...EXCELLENT FOR SLIPPING UNDER WINDSHIELD WIPERS ON CARS PARKED IN KEY PARKING LOTS CHURCHES, RALLY SITES....

“any two people in LOVE” is a left wing talking point.

This was pushed by a professor by the name of Lackoff who advocated the any two language as a means to propaganda the homosexual marriage debate.

This just shows CNN is part and parcel of the left.

This is nothing more than a replay of their 2005 campaign. It's all predictable and unworthy of space on FR.
