Don’t turn a blind eye to evil, either. IMHO, permitting by silent assent a pope to be used to advance the devil’s agenda (misleading people about Fatima’s message) is worse than of what you speak.
The scriptural passages you quote were used by the “non-judgmental” generation to wreak havoc upon children raised during that period and it’s still going on today. That’s why, for example, gay coupling is seen as a fairness issue and not a moral issue by most of the young. They were told “Don’t be judgmental”, because there isn’t any such thing as absolute morality anyway.
I don’t know if I really believe that Pope Benedict lied, or it was more a matter of being used as a “tool”. Thus I really can’t judge the matter anyway. But I have no compunction about condemning the clearly evil forces in our world and neither should you.
“IMHO, permitting by silent assent a pope to be used to advance the devils agenda (misleading people about Fatimas message) is worse than of what you speak.”
To claim that Papa Benedict is “advancing the devil’s agenda” is no “humble” opinion. It is an outright attack on another human, one chosen by God to serve the Church (which he continues to do.)
“The scriptural passages you quote were used by the ....”
It matters not at all who has “used” these scriptures or for what. We are to take them and apply them to ourselves...honestly.
“I dont know if I really believe that Pope Benedict lied,...”
Then you should not say that he did.
I understand your hatred of evil. However, we should focus on the evil in our own hearts and pray for the rest. In particular, one should not attack those in authority in the Church. If you have a problem with a particular Church official...take it to that person personally with a humble heart and leave the rest to God.
As for the outright evil in the world (think abortion, gay “marriage,” human trafficking, pornography, terrorism, etc.) we, should definitely have no compunction about speaking and working against such. We should also seek God’s wisdom and assistance in so doing.
Overall, we should spend more time in prayer than simply talking about the state of the world at this point. We could ask ourselves, “Do I pray the rosary daily”?; “Do I converse with God daily and listen to Him”? “Do I take advantage of the Liturgy of the Hours daily?” ; “Do I go to Confession at least once a month”?; “Do I pray for the clergy at least on a weekly basis?” ; Am I advancing in my intimate relationship with the Lord”?; Am I serving the Church in some concrete, active way in my parish?” What am I doing to help and evangelize the less fortunate as God leads”?...and so on.
At this stage of history, it is critical that we all respond honestly to such questions, repent where we have not done what we are called to do and begin again with HIS merciful grace.
