Gay couples canít make real families; abortions are like the Holocaust ∑ PinkNews Reports on Francis

(Note that this is from the point of view of a LGBT publication in the U.K.)


Pope Francis has condemned same-sex parents and abortion in a series of scathing comments.

It had been hoped that the Pope was in the process of softening the Catholic Church’s position on LGBT rights, particularly as it was just last month that he told Juan Carlos Cruz, a gay survivor of sexual abuse by a prominent Chilean priest: “God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care.”

However, during unscripted remarks at Forum delle Famiglie, an Italian group for Catholic families, he closed the door on the idea of same-sex couples forming a family within the Church.

“It is painful to say this today: People speak of varied families, of various kinds of family,” but “the family [as] man and woman in the image of God is the only one,” he said, according to ANSA News Agency.

The leader of the Catholic Church also compared abortion of seriously ill foetuses to the Holocaust, saying: “In the last century, the entire world was scandalised by what the Nazis did to ensure the purity of the race.

“Today we do the same, but with white gloves.” Pope Francis addresses the crowd on the portico of the Mary Theotokos Shrine during a pastoral visit in Loppiano, on May 10, 2018 near Grosseto, Tuscany.

The Pope also praised spouses who stay with unfaithful partners, hoping for them to stop cheating on them instead of asking for a divorce.

“Many women – but even men sometimes do it [with wives] – wait in silence, looking the other way, waiting for their husband to become faithful again,” he said.

This, he added, was “the sanctity that forgives all out of love.”

Conspiracy theorist and alt-right host Alex Jones, whose InfoWars YouTube channel has 2.3 million subscribers, went on an alarming rant after the Pope’s more accepting comments last month, in which he said that the pontiff was a “piranha,” “paedophile” and “creepazoid.”

Jones then told his followers that the pontiff was “as close as you’re gonna get to Satan in the flesh”

Olympic medallist Adam Rippon praised the Pope after those remarks, lending to the idea that the Catholic head was on the right path, with the winner of Dancing with the Stars calling his stance “so awesome.”

But the Pope gave notice that he wasn’t upturning thousands of years of Church doctrine just days after speaking to Cruz, when he reportedly used a private meeting to warn bishops in Italy that they should reject any applicants to the priesthood who they suspect might be gay.

This was unsurprising to those following closely, seeing as in 2016, the Vatican reaffirmed its ban on gay priests that has been in place since 2005, stating that if you “practice homosexuality” you will not be welcome as a priest.

The statement said: “The Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practice homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called ‘gay culture.’

“Such persons, in fact, find themselves in a situation that gravely hinders them from relating correctly to men and women.

“One must in no way overlook the negative consequences that can derive from the ordination of persons with deep-seated homosexual tendencies.”

I know. It's maddening.

Why does he even bother?

Are there actually two of them: Good Francis and Bad Francis?

Multiple Personality Disorder? Mentally unhinged?

He has a history, going back to Argentina, of saying one thing to one person and the opposite to another, of saying one thing to someone in the morning, and the opposite to a group in the afternoon.

Bottom line: he tells you what he thinks you want to hear.

The guy is demented. Seriously. He should be removed before he does any more damage.

Yes, I agree with these statements. But how long will it be before he completely contradicts himself? He needs to go. Now.

Sure seems like it Or is it more likely that he realizes that Catholic churches are losing people every time he speaks his liberal nonsense? Whatever the answer is he has already done great damage and should abdicate.

He want to please people. I notice that the Jesuits in Argentina thought he was too conservative - not radical and socially engaged enough. That could have wounded him, so maybe now he's trying to please both sides.

To the libs who say, “God makes you gay” so it’s ok,
I ask, if it were discovered to be genetic would aborting a gay fetus be OK?

Believe it or not, that very point has been made by a gay prolife group called PLAGAL (Pro Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians.)

They say if "gay" turns out to be genetic, and abortion is legal, there'll be no way to prevent women from having the baby prenatally diagnosed and then killed if they didn't want a gay son or daughter.

They consider that legal abortion contains the potentiality of genocide of "pre-gay" unborn babies.

A paradox, hey?

If Francis cared about protecting preborn babies he would have spent the month before the vote in Ireland, speaking at every venue on the island, staking the very existence of the church on the need to keep the most innocent members of it safe.

“Gay couples can’t make real families”

They cant. That’s why they adopt...to rape and molest children. Faggots make me sick.

Irish popular vote to legalize abortion: May 25, 2018.
Argentine legislature votes to legalize abortion: June 14, 2018.
Pope Francis speaks out passionately against abortion: June 17, 2018.

Based on that timeline, it sounds to me like the Pope Francis is really pro-abortion (pro-infanticide), and he spoke out on June 17th so that he could pretend otherwise. He is a con-man. Had he really been ‘passionately’ pro-Life, he would have spoken out when it could have mattered. I.e., prior to May 25th.

Francis was sleeping in the Vatican when an intruder startled him awake. The intruder made Francis an offer he could not refuse. Francis asked if he was a Godfather. No, I am God, replied the intruder.

I’m ecstatic Pope Francis is speaking out against same-sex mirage.
The Vatican said Pope Francis didn’t tell that abused young man that he was born homosexual.
Why are you saying why did Pope Francis speak against abortion? Because he spoke 3 days after the vote?
BTW, DID (dissociative identity disorder, formerly multiple personality disorder) is caused by severe childhood sexual abuse. Any clues that Pope Francis was?

I've said this before. He is a Modernist. Here is what Pius X said about the heretic Modernists:

This will appear more clearly to anybody who studies the conduct of Modernists, which is in perfect harmony with their teachings. In their writings and addresses they seem not unfrequently to advocate doctrines which are contrary one to the other, so that one would be disposed to regard their attitude as double and doubtful.

Contradictions are par for the course.
