Goodbye America, It was nice knowing you!
Welp, guess there’s not much point to the rest of the Bible either then...
“Some countries justify civil unions as a way to provide the same economic and legal rights to cohabitating couples as those who are married”
BS. Follow the money. If they accept them they can convince them to tithe and the government can tax them as a married couple.
You could also do that with any other sin from adultery to murder, but I'm not sure what it would really accomplish....
Have had my fingers hovering over the keyboard, trying to decide what to type. All I can come up with is ...
I wonder why the assumption is that civil partnership must involve people who have sex with one another? Why can’t legal protections sought in such partnerships apply to a caretaker and an a person under their care or to two very close friends?
Welcome to the "days of the Son of Man."
So I guess I don’t need to go to Church on Sundays or donate money either.
“’If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?’
It’s obvious to anyone who wants to understand what the Pope said. He does NOT say they can be married in the Catholic Church. He says if a gay person “seeks God” then he will not judge them. BIG difference in saying he approves of gays.
Just consider the graces which could be dispensed by God upon those who seek God’s will.
I will wait for a better source than the Daily Mail
There seems to be a push to report that the Catholic Church is giving any kind of validity to homosexual behavior. So far all of it has been denied.
This report may or may not involve incorrect quotes, interpretations, and inferences.
However, dark forces in the form of modernist and progressive cabals within the Vatican influenced the Church especially in the 60s and 70s.
Not all Catholics were compromised either inside or outside of Rome.
True Catholics, being true Christians, and sustaining the true Church, persist to this day and will until the end of time.
I believe this is BS! Typical media misinterpretation.
Who knows what’s in Dolan’s closet.
I ask myself, why? Why is it that there has been this seeming ongoing effort from the Vatican to loosen scriptural standards? Why is there nary an example of a Vatican message of increased structure or discipline that has gotten lost in translation?
There seems to be a whole lot of trial balloons being sent out with a clear sense of plausible deniability attached.
I have a bad feeling about all this. To be perfectly honest, I think the Catholic church is itching to fall away and allow modern culture to direct their beliefs. Of course all this will be couched in becoming more “modern” more “relevant” to millenials or to whomever.
We are in very dangerous territory, but it could be that the wheat is about to get separated from the chaff in a divine way. My confidence in the Catholic church at the moment is very thin.
“There will be many false teachers”
I, for one, still believe the Church should at least speak out against even-secular arrangements that institutionize and perpetuate such seriously anti-Biblical behavior.
But at the very, very least...I would urgently recommend that language such as “the Church will approve of...” be avoided, even if the Church decides not to speak against these things. There is a difference between not speaking against something... and openly stating or asserting Church “approval” of it.
The Church cannot “approve” of behavior that God condemns and still maintain its own legitimacy as His church, IMHO,
Take a look at this before you believe the hype please.
Argintina has had Gay Marriage for quite some time.
What did the College of Cardinals expect to happen?
is this more dolan’s interpretation of what he said,
or is it actually what he said?
the press doesn’t seem to do a great job translating what the guy actually says, but may spin it the way they want it to sound, ie more liberal, than what really was said.
Luther declared I now know of a certainty that the papacy is the kingdom of Babylon.
