    Pope Francis: No Place for a ‘Catholic Party’ in Politics Pope Francis called on Catholics to embrace political pluralism Monday, insisting that there is no longer any place for a “Catholic party.” “I invite you to live your faith with great freedom, never believing that there is a single form of political commitment for Catholics: a Catholic party,” the pope told a delegation of young Latin Americans from the Academy of Catholic Leaders Monday. “A Catholic party no longer works.”

    Guest Article: "Francis and the Joint Declaration on Human Fraternity: A Public Repudiation of the Catholic Faith" Dr. John Lamont On February 4th 2019, Pope Francis and Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Mosque, signed a 'Document on Human Fraternity'. The document and its signing were public acts. It contains the following passage: 'Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine...

    The Age of Religious Relativism Pope Francis is contributing to it Pope Francis is making his flirtations with religious relativism more and more explicit. During his trip to the United Arab Emirates this week, Pope Francis signed a joint declaration with his Islamic hosts on "human fraternity." It contained a statement his predecessors would have found shocking: "The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings." His predecessors would have called that an endorsement of false religions, an endorsement made worse by enlisting God's...

    St. Francis and the Sultan: What really happened in 1219 in Catholic Muslim dialogue? Posted on 6 February 2019 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf The Islamic/Catholic Fraternity document has caused a stir.  I wrote about a neuralgic point in it, yesterday, and some people had a spittle-flecked nutty.There is more to say about that document.  I’ll get to it again, soon. I suspect more spittle-flecked nutties will result.Meanwhile, Francis held a Wednesday General Audience today.   Text HERE. During that audience he offered a couple points that deserve attention.Francis said that, during his time in the UAE, he often thought about the...

    Pope seems to ‘overturn’ Gospel in statement with Grand Imam: Church historian ROME, February 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis’s statement in Abu Dhabi on religious pluralism being “willed by God” — and his call to Christians and Muslims to enter the “ark of fraternity” — seem not only to “overturn the doctrine of the Gospel” but also to align with the ideas of Freemasonry, a respected Italian historian has said. In comments to LifeSite (see full text below), Professor Roberto de Mattei, Founder and President of the Rome-based Lepanto Foundation, also said the Pope’s recent statements appear to...

    Rorate Caeli ^ | February 5, 2019 | Pope Francis / Pope Pius IX
    No, Francis, God did not "will a plurality and diversity of religions": saying so is "altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion." Point: The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. Document co-signed by Francis and the "Grand Imam of Al-Azhar" Ahmad Al-Tayyeb Counterpoint: Never perhaps in the past have we seen, as we see in these our own times, the minds of men so occupied by the desire both of strengthening and of extending to the common welfare of human society that...

    Bergoglians are the party of Apostasy, and no one can deny it NOW! Today, if not beforehand, Jorge Mario Bergoglio publicly and manifestly apostatized from the Catholic Faith, when he signed the “Human Fraternity Document” which professes all religions to be “willed by God in His wisdom.”According to The National, Bergoglio signed the “Human Fraternity Document” in Abu-dhabi today (see link for more photos).The Human Fraternity Meeting official website gives the text of the document: the outrageous affirmation is found under the second bullet point, which reads: Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief,...

    In an interview with the Tunisian Al-Wataniya TV channel, Professor Amel Grami said that in the days of early Islam, "society was more aware of its diversity and more pluralistic, while today we are more rigid and unaccepting of the other." According to Grami, a professor of Arabic studies at the University of Manouba, Tunisia, and an authority on gender studies, "many judges talked openly about their passion for boys, and said that they have their own boy, whom they meet intimately, and so on. Many jurisprudents had such relations." The interview aired on December 20, 2015. Video at link

    The Week ^ | 07-11-2015 | Damon Linker
    At the risk of sounding like Paul Krugman — who returns to a handful of cherished topics over and over again in his New York Times column — I want to revisit one of my hobby horses, which I most recently raised in my discussion of Hobby Lobby. My own cherished topic is this: Liberalism's decline from a political philosophy of pluralism into a rigidly intolerant dogma. The decline is especially pronounced on a range of issues wrapped up with religion and sex. For a time, electoral self-interest kept these intolerant tendencies in check, since the strongly liberal position on...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | May 7, 2014 | James Kalb
    With few exceptions, American Catholics have given up on the dream of a Catholic society. Instead, they have come to aspire to a seat at the table: a respected position in public life that lets them bring their insights and values into public discussion within a pluralistic system.At first glance the aspiration seems sensible. A Catholic social order can’t function if there is no consensus in favor of Catholicism among people who run things. We are a long way from such a situation, so the best we can hope for today is to be able to propose our views...

    Secretary of State John Kerry has announced the creation of the Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives, whose mission, he said, is “to engage more closely with faith communities around the world, with the belief that we need to partner with them to solve global challenges.” “There is common ground between the Abrahamic faiths, and, in fact, between the Abrahamic faiths and all religions and philosophies, whether you’re talking about Hindu or Confucianism or any other of the many of the world’s different approaches to our existence here on the planet and to our relationship with a supreme being,” said Kerry....

    The Aquila Report ^ | 3-15-13 | David Murray
    Of course, for too long successive governments have enacted and tolerated laws that are evil (such as the legalizing of abortion). What’s new in our day is that laws are being proposed and enacted that attempt to force Christians to give up core Christian doctrines (e.g. Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation) and ethics (e.g. biblical definition of marriage). When the Government does this, it is crossing the line from being God’s servant to being God itself. When that happens, what should we do? Although Christians ought to be the most loyal citizens in any nation, we are...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/20/2012 | Ethel C. Fenig
    The great minds at Harvard University just can't seem to get this diversity, pluralism and multi culti thing right. Not to mention inclusiveness. And when combined with something as difficult as food--well, Harvard just seems to collapse. Recently, Harvard succumbed after an Arab student went on a hate filled rant, complaining that hummus wasn't Israeli but Arab, or at least Mediterranean; labeling it Israeli was another sign of Israeli domination. Then Harvard University Dining Service (HUDS) decided that because kosher food is more expensive than non kosher food--and it is--only Jews should be allowed to eat in the Harvard Hillel...

We need to quit worshipping at the altar of pluralism and multiculturalism.

    ...Now, here is the issue and it is the same issue as with the popular versions of syncretism, relativism, inclusivism and pluralism of all sorts and kinds: the fact is that we are all exclusivists. This is very simply proved: if you disagree with the statement “we are all exclusivists” then you have just proved the point as you have excluded the statement from the realm of truth. Consider this: all religions do not claim that all religions have the answer. All claim to have the answer. All claim some sort of exclusivity; or else they would not be distinct...
