I think he is barking up the wrong tree. The embrace of a more conservative, less Vatican II, papacy has been very popular except among the left and those that despise the church, always have and always will.

People look to the church for moral stability, not revolution theology, not trendy cultural fashion, nor internationalism outside of their faith.

Thus the papacy should call for greater charity from the wealthy, not higher taxes on the wealthy to supposedly benefit the poor; they should call for governments to reform and embrace the faith, and by doing so to invite prosperity, not for refugees to flee their homes and emigrate to other lands; and the papacy should have long ago learned that socialism is a dead end that causes suffering, not liberation.

People need to look to Jesus and the Scriptures, nobody else.

The Catholic Church cant re write the Bible, though I am sure they would if they thought they could get away with it,

Jehovah`s Witness have to re write their Bible on a regular basis to keep up with the errors pointed out to them.

This idea that people might come to Christ if we would only say their sin is not sin??? Ridiculous

I am a sinner saved by Grace, The Pope is going the same way as Joel Osteen, he wont say that sin is sin.

Pressed by Larry King about 5 times, finally on the question of... is homosexuality a sin?? Joel finally can only say,,,”well it`s not God`s best”

Oprah Winfrey enjoys Joel Osteen because he wont say that her relationship with her live in boyfriend is sin.

The Bible says in the end times people will make it all up as they go along.

Listening to Father Jonathon on Fox News today was pretty pathetic.

The Bible does not play down sin, there is no reason that anybody should.

People cant be forgiven for their sins if they say their sin is not sin. And to say their sin is not sin, is to call God a liar
