I’m so done with this Pope. We could always depend on the Catholic. Church to defend the Sanctity of life. Now it’s considered small minded. He can welcome his new flock if he chooses — I’m out. Sadly.
When Pope Francis explicitly defends the Sanctity of Life, does it get covered in the news?
This is absolutely worth the less-than-a-minute it will take to get the gist and read the comments too.
Oh for pete’s sake. There is nothing that he has said that is any different from anything the Church has taught since the beginning. The problem of many people here, however, is that with the miserable instruction they have received since Vatican II, they don’t really know what the Church has been teaching all along and the Pope’s statements on it come as a complete surprise to them.
However, that said, he gave a long talk to a group of medical professionals yesterday on the sanctity of life, how it was the duty of the medical profession to defend life at all times, how it was the essential right, how the lives of everyone, even the most socially marginalized (unborn, handicapped, elderly), must be defended at all costs, etc.
Exactly what else is it that you wish him to say?
Come home to the truely Reformed churches. We value life.
