Skip to comments.Finally, An Orthodox Pope?
Posted on 04/01/2014 5:50:25 AM PDT by BlatherNaut
I have been a vocal critic of this Pontiff whenever I thought it was necessary, but I must say perhaps (just perhaps) we are seeing the end of the tunnel here.
In yesterdays homily, the Pontiff has invited the present to
eliminate our non-Christian ways of acting: sodomy, abortion, adultery, fornication, because they can lead us straight to hell, no?
I am not sure about the constant use of those rhetorical questions (it must be an Argentinian thing), but I do approve of every word. It is to my knowledge the first time the Pope condemns abortion and fornication openly and unmistakably, and the reference to adultery is a very good sign concerning the Extraordinary Synod in October.

AFAIK it’s for real.
One would think the Holy Father’s use of the word “sodomy” would cause a fire storm and end the world’s love affair with him. I think the Pope’s supposed lack of orthodoxy is way overdone. He’s gotten in trouble a couple of times for using his words in a way the world could twist but I don’t really think he’s a radical departure from John Paul or Benedict as those with an agenda would have people believe.
I can’t seem to find this quote anywhere other than this source. I’m not buying it. And even if he did say it? He’s still a Modernist. They are known for saying both orthodox and heterodox things. It doesn’t make me feel any better.
Here is the report about Francis’homily yesterday:
I don’t see the aforementioned quote or topic in this homily at all.
I hear you. His praise of Kasper's theology is particularly ominous. Impossible to know which end is up at this point. We better double down on the pelagian Rosary novenas. :)
It must be an April Fool’s joke. Should have known, it sounded so out of character. So much for wishful thinking.
I bet mundabor will update tomorrow.
You’re right, and so are the other commenters who thought this post was Mundabor’s for April Fool’s Day. His latest post, http://mundabor.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/aprils-fool-2/, states:
Yes, of course it was an April’s fool!
Or do you think that you would be informed that the Bishop of Rome, the most Modernist tool in the land east of the Pampas, would put himself on his way to conversion on April 1!? Really?
What shall I say: I commend the innocence of those who have believed it. Albeit hooks and sinks also come to mind
I must admit: it was fun. My apologies to all those whose comments I had to hold back, lest they spoil the party too soon
Still, even this little joke tell us something, in fact, rather serious, and to be reflected upon with due sadness.
We live in such disgraceful times, that a Pope expressing himself as he should is, in fact, an April’s fool joke.
