If only the orientation is present, and not the behavior or the self-advertising, then there is nothing to be observed, judged, or objected to.
I like this pope a lot.
Methinks the MSM had best wait a bit and see what this Pope has to say about gay priests that choose to pack fudge...especially with children.
We all should not judge...but when one is holding the badge of an organization, one either fulfills the obligations of that badge...or one leaves. And I fully believe that this pope thinks this way also.
Praying your bf isn’t HIV positive or has full blown AIDS don’t count!
Pope Francis the Fondler. Homosexuals have infiltrated
the Catholic church and taken over. Boy Scouts, The Catholic
church, AMA and the federal government are now controlled by
the homosexuals and their agenda.
Homos are the minions of satan.
If a person decides to live his or her life contrary to God and His law, how can that person be said to be "seeking the Lord in good faith?" How can this statement be reconciled?
It's sad to see evidence that the Pope is seemingly "unaware" of passages in the Holy Bible concerning judging others, particularly where biblically condemned same-sex sexual relationships are concerned. More spefically, reflecting on Jesus' words concerning unrepentant sinners in Matthew 18:15-17, Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 that church members are expected judge other church members.
Well,. there goes any hope this Roman Catholic had of this Pope cleaning out the Church. It is evidently SO infected with homosexuals and deviants that to reform it in any way is seen as suicidal.
I’d rather have TWO-TWO Roman Catholic priests on the planet who LIVED their vows, than the thousands of illegitimate ‘priests’ we have now. I do not-and will never- consider homosexual priests as legitimate priests. Pedophilia aside, I don’t want priest having sex with other adults or each other either! Can’t adhere to the vows=don’t take them. Break them and you are NOT a priest.
Except for the fact that in Biblical Chrsitianity no one seeks God, he has a point. < /sarc>
This pope is a Jesuit and he’s living up to their liberal reputation.
I thought the reason Benedict resigned was to put in someone younger with the strength to fight off the liberal tendencies that were besetting the church. They blew it by a mile.
He’s a socialist
He likes Muslims
And now the gay lifestyle
They might as well have installed Rowan Williams (former Archbishop of Canterbury)!
And what’s this about not judging - that’s what we do a thousand times a day!
One cannot be honestly seeking the Lord if he is proudly bathed in sin. Not possible. He must renounce the evil he has done, and approach the throne of God with humbleness.
Pope Francis on Gays: Who Am I to Judge Them If Theyre Seeking the Lord in Good Faith?
Perhaps the Pope can share with us how a person that is deliberately living a life of sin and demands that everyone else accepts that lifestyle, is seeking the Lord in good faith?
So priests can have sex with men but not with women? Or can they have sex with both, just not be married? Pope Francis doesn’t want to judge... sounds good on the surface.
How about serial killer priest? Or priests who steal from the Catholic Church? Does the ‘don’t want to judge’ thing still apply? I might not be understanding something here...
He even asked the journalists to refer back to the Cathechism for the clear and complete teachings of the Catholic Church on this matter.
Earlier today, I red on a Brazilian paper that the US media have been extremely negative on the Pope's visit to Brazil, highlighting minor mishaps and misquoting the Pope.
I tend to agree with that sentiment.
gays are not asking for forgiveness, they are demanding approval and forcing their views on the rest of us. that is not asking for forgiveness.
if you demand acceptqnce and approval for your sin, and keep sinning, that ain’t forgivenesss and it ain’t repentance ie - go and sin no more.
No wonder the Pope doesn’t grant interviews. Everything gets twisted into untruths.
Didn’t think this pope would jump the shark this quick. Just one more step in the faggotization of society in general
Kingdom of God is exclusive... none of us deserve it.. but thank God He made a way.... and that Way, Truth and Life said go and sin no more.... knowing what is sin and abominations to God is a good start for all.. Gods word is our law book.. and we are guilty... all of us. Can’t plead innocence or ignorance.. our next step is to repent and stop doing what we were doing before we knew what price our sins cost The Eternal Father- His only Son... kind of humbling for those who can be humbled... pride gets in the way of that humbling.... gay pride, murderer pride, adulterer pride, thief pride, liars pride, coveters pride..... we all could join most of those parades on earth.... but in paradise it is all about Him...
