Pope Apologizes for "Catholics who Obstructed Pentecostal Growth"
Rorate Caeli ^ | 8/01/14 | New Catholic

Posted on 08/01/2014 3:21:10 PM PDT by ebb tide

We interrupt this Sandro Magister column for an important announcement: "The Temple of Solomon has reopened!"

No, not the original Temple, of course: all over the news (cf. reports at the Times and in Forbes magazine), one can see the announcement of a bizarre gaudy 300-million-dollar supposed replica built by a Pentecostal sect in the largest Brazilian city, Sao Paulo. We wish to offer our readers a glimpse of how much the Catholic Church has "obstructed the growth" (in the Pope's words) of these Pentecostal communities in Latin America.

That "Holy Spirit" thing that happens to people when they come to a real faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, instead of faith in a corrupt church, a gay priest or a lady named Mary, is certainly a scary thing. Those who lust for control are left in despair.

That’s for the mothership to land on.

Pope Francis’ Apology Tour is wearing thin. Everyone who hates the Catholic Church loves this man.

Encounters with the Devil are also a scary things.

The Pope believes in the freedom of choice in religion. Don’t you?

Our Constitution backs him up.

I wonder if Frank and Barry learned to apologize from the same Imam?

"Our Constitution"? Are you serious? Is that your go-to Bible?

Pope Apologizes for “Catholics who Obstructed Pentecostal Growth”

That’s really sad as well as absurd. He might as well volunteer to recruit for these faux victims while he’s at it. Or maybe he’d like to officially join them. After all, he has repeatedly shown disdain toward faithful Catholics.

If such behavior (by a pope, no less!!!) is not the epitome of religious indifferentism, then what is?

Agree. These apologies must be stopped. And why apologize to heretics.

Or a corrupt faith assembly, or a gay minister.

Or a gay doctor.

Yep, and the words are interesting, "I'll be danged, they finally got them a Pope who realizes that he, and all members of this particular religion are merely flawed humans who make mistakes. About damn time."

And religious indifferentism is heresy. Here we have multiple examples of public displays of such.

If you don’t think that Catholics are VERY aware that we humans are sinners, you are terribly mistaken. Read what the majority of popes have written about the great MERCY of God and how they give glory to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ for the salvation and redemption he bestows on those who respond to Him.
