Pope Francis reiterated the Churchs belief that having a homosexual orientation is not sinful but engaging in homosexual acts is.
Folks, by now most of you should recognize how the mainstream media works: ask a question, grab a response, ignore any context to doctrine, and run with it. Since earlier today, the thread "Pope Says He Won't Judge Gay Priests" has held the #1 position under Breaking News. There is nothing new, much less "breaking" in what the pope said, nor is there anything different in how the media is spinning it. You are intelligent individuals .. you must be or you would not be on FR. Use your common sense, recognize what is going on here and then laugh. You have all been taken in by the mainstream media.
Not to nit pick, but exactly how does one attain a “homosexual orientation” without engaging in the very act that defines it?
I’m not taken in by anyone. I know the name of the game. BUT I also know if the Pope defrocked ALL practicing homosexuals and pedophiles in the clergy there is NO way the media would ignore it- nor could they spin it. THAT is what needs to be done. Anything short of that is allowing evil to masquerade as clergy-and NO ‘priest’ who breaks his vows is a legitimate priest. If a priest is found to have a girlfriend/heterosexual relationship he is drummed out pretty quickly-but priests sodomizing other priests/adult men/boys are to be understood and tolerated. Hell no.
The longer this goes on, and the worse that it gets, only confirms my belief that the Vatican is crawling with homosexuals and pedophiles-yes right up to the College of Cardinals; and they will see the Church destroyed before they leave it.
Nyer, the following critiques are directed at what the Pope allegedly said and not you.
Where did the term "homosexual orientation" come from? I think that "temptation" is a more appropriate biblical term.
While damage control is of course needed in response to his statements, it won’t erase this positioning and it’s effects.
The left has reason to feel just a touch better today while we aren’t pleased at all.
Can you say that you are happy with his comments, pleased, feel a little better for them, than before them?
Coveting thy neighbor's wife is a sin. How is coveting thy neighbor's husband, brother, father, et al, not one?
“Pope Francis reiterated the Churchs belief that having a homosexual orientation is not sinful but engaging in homosexual acts is.”
BS. Homosexual orientation? As long as a frog doesn’t act
like a frog he can be a toad. Sounds like a backtrack to me.
So it’s ok to be a homo and enter the kingdom of heaven as
long as you don’t blow the prophets? It’s not the church
I’m mad about, it’s the homo’s and their agenda.
Ultimate oxymoron, “homosexual priest”. Francis the Pope
just condoned homosexual priesthood. That’s it in a
