Skip to comments.The New Pope Believes He Is The Authority On How Children Should Be Raised And Educated
Posted on 03/13/2013 2:05:41 PM PDT by Maelstorm
The white smoke had come and gone and a new pope is among us. The Vatican has chosen Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina. And although hes not in favor of Kills the Gays legislation like a contender (points!), he is predictably in line with the whole children need a mother and a father line of thought. Not a big shocker by any means.
The Guardian describes the archbishop turned pope as a Jesuit intellectual who has a very deep compassion for the poor (but not the gays!). Upon being made cardinal in 2001, Bergoglio reportedly told hundreds of Argentinians to not throw away money on a plane ticket to Rome to celebrate with him. He encouraged his supporters to give that plane ticket cash to the poor. The man has a heart .but not for the gays or their children:
He was a fierce opponent of Argentinas decision to legalise gay marriage in 2010, arguing children need to have the right to be raised and educated by a father and a mother.
So nothing to really new to see here, folks, but thanks for coming out. Much like Pope Benedict XVI, I fully expect to see our new pope getting up every Christmas to rail against the evils of same-sex marriage and how its destroying our children one gay marriage license at a time. As opposed to, you know, not having access to health insurance via their parents relationship status.

“children need a mother and a father”
An unarguable truth since the beginning of time. And yet that’s supposed to be a bad thing. Disgusting, indeed.
Could be he opposes the rich Obamunist banksters, which I don't have any opinion on unless you twist my arm WAY back. And then I'll say, "I'm agin' gangsters and banksters."
It's not something that comes up "de fide," anyhow. Meaning if it's not a doctrine on faith and morals, it's "prudential judgment," and therefore not a question on which he can speak with authority.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not covet.
Whatevery you did unto the least of My brethren, you did unto Me.
Those are the authoritative statements.
We live in the most unequal part of the world, which has grown the most yet reduced misery the least, Bergoglio told Latin American bishops in 2007, according a recent profile in the National Catholic Reporter. The unjust distribution of goods persists, creating a situation of social sin that cries out to Heaven and limits the possibilities of a fuller life for so many of our brothers. --Cardinal Bergoglio
Well, that IS a pity.
Thank YOU mlizzy. We’ve prayed and cried today and now I feel joyful.
There is nothing wrong with the church promoting social justice as long as they use their ministries and own money to do it. The problem is when it enmeshes itself with what government ought to do.
Exactly and the idea that there is something wrong with disagreeing with biologically and theologically incorrect sex and relationships shouldn’t be used as a measure of compassion. I have compassion for many people especially those who are trapped in negative situations and lifestyles but please forgive me if I don’t praise and enable them to their own demise.
Keep in mind that the “authority” he claims, is the authority to say what God says via Natural Law: that children have a natural right to the love and care of their father and mother, and parents have, in the light of that right, a natural authority and obligation to direct the education of their own children.
That’s Catholic doctrine.
And Natural Law.
And this pope is — surprise! and against all Enemedia speculations-— a Catholic.
And he’s right. Parents everywhere have abdicated their responsibilties to publik government skools, and even the medical liberal establishment.
I cannot tell you how they are beating us over the head wtih the idea that we have to ask parents to leave the room when we counsel adolescents ....young people at a very vulnerable time in life ...and yet we simply are asking that WE, and not their parents, give them guidance on important isssues. Why do we have to speak to these children alone without their parents? What is there to hide?
Many parents are simply drunk, on drugs, or just plain GONE out of their children’s lives ...or one parent is gone ... or the other is more interested in watching whatever sports game is one, or what time American Idol comes on ...or how much money they made in the markets that day ...or on the golf course ...or wherever.
It’s what’s wrong with our entire world ....horrible parenting, lack of family ... look what it leads to!
Parents have the authority ....they need to reclaim it and stand up to this overbearing nanny-State crap.
And I, not even Catholic!!!
But you can be. We’d love to have you. :)
It’s good if you’re rich to give to the poor; it’s the “forced” giving that isn’t right. I like this pope very much so far... :)
I’m not a Catholic and have my own issues with the doctrine. However, I admire a leader who speaks up for that doctrine.
Weve prayed and cried today and now I feel joyful.Yes, us too!! :) We've got another great pope!
I think we were all tense about this, what with all the prophecies and all. Third one in a row that is not an Italian!
Oh, but he is Italian, although his citizenship is from Argentina.
How is it a pity?
I would argue that such an unjust distribution exists in socialist societies, or in tyrannies like those of Hugo Chavez.
I would look at the man’s track record before impulsively jumping (though I wish more of the elders in the Vatican would catch on to what passes nowadays as Liberal Lingo).
Oh, I had missed that, although his name could have given me a clue. I think I was glad he was ‘distant’ from the ‘old school’ of the Vatican. At any rate, I’m happy with the choice although I wish he were a younger man.
Well is the Guardian doesn’t like him, that is a point in his favor.
So he's not swayed by modern lunacy? /clap
