The current pope is part of the re=packaging of Christianity, and it is bad news because the Catholic Church had been a bastion of tradition for a couple of thousand years. Even when activists wrested control fifty years ago, the popes themselves (for the most part) clung to tradition: No abortion, divorce, homosexuality, female clergy - all clearly laid out in Scripture.

Red Frankie is doing his damnedest to change that in his last few years before his judgment.

Actually, those *activists* have been in control of the Vatican for FAR longer than 50 years.

Like over 1,000.

They are just no longer making a secret about it.

I’m Catholic, and you are not wrong.

Our Protestant brothers and sisters have many sincere and profound disagreements with us over certain things. But as the largest single Christian denomination the Catholic Church played an important role as a bulwark against social decay.

It’s deconstruction by Pope Frankie is not a good thing for any other Christians.

It is the distinctive Catholic tradition that are not manifest in the only wholly inspired substantive authoritative record of what the NT church believed (including how they understood the OT and gospels, which is Scripture, especially Acts thru Revelation) which is a problem.

No abortion, divorce, homosexuality, female clergy - all clearly laid out in Scripture.

But what a person or church does and fosters is the basis for determining what they believe, and you all were in worse moral condition at times in the past.

Cardinal Ratzinger observed,

"For nearly half a century, the Church was split into two or three obediences that excommunicated one another, so that every Catholic lived under excommunication by one pope or another, and, in the last analysis, no one could say with certainty which of the contenders had right on his side. The Church no longer offered certainty of salvation; she had become questionable in her whole objective form--the true Church, the true pledge of salvation, had to be sought outside the institution.“

"It is against this background of a profoundly shaken ecclesial consciousness that we are to understand that Luther, in the conflict between his search for salvation and the tradition of the Church, ultimately came to experience the Church, not as the guarantor, but as the adversary of salvation. (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, head of the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith for the Church of Rome, “Principles of Catholic Theology,” trans. by Sister Mary Frances McCarthy, S.N.D. (San Francisco: Ignatius, 1989) p.196). http://www.whitehorseinn.org/blog/2012/06/13/whos-in-charge-here-the-illusions-of-church-infallibility/)
