Skip to comments.Pope Francis Doubles Down: Bishops’ Accusers Are Like Satan, ‘the Great Accuser’

Pope Francis has doubled down in his insistence that accusations and cries for justice and accountability are fruit of a diabolical spirit, saying Thursday that the only legitimate accusation is against oneself.
Before his meeting with the leadership of the U.S. Bishops Conference Thursday to discuss recent allegations of serious mishandling of clerical sex abuse reaching up to the pontiff himself, the pope used his homily at morning Mass to once again condemn accusers as allies of the devil.
Not accusing others goes against the spirit of the world, the pope told his small congregation in the chapel of his Santa Marta residence. Among us is the great accuser, who always goes to accuse us before God, in order to destroy us. Satan: He is the great accuser.
When I enter into this logic of accusing, cursing, trying to hurt the other, I enter into the logic of the great accuser who is destructive, he said, who does not know the word mercy. He does not know it and has never lived it.
The Christian path always presents a crossroads, Francis said. On the one hand there us the invitation of the Lord to be merciful, an invitation that is a grace, a grace of sonship, to resemble the father. On the other hand, there is the great accuser, Satan, who urges us to accuse others, to destroy them.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Hes the Obama of popes.
Doesn’t sound like pope pedo is going to step down voluntarily. Can he be overthrown?
I never usec to think about the anti-Pope at all. But now the thought passes by weekly.
Papa Franciscus makes ANOTHER ridiculous statement! What will he say tomorrow?
ALWAYS think truth—it is ALL that we have, now.
Lies, and LIARS do not live in the light. They never did.
And how many accusations has this pope made against others whose politics he personally does not agree with?
He needs to go. Period. The victims deserve justice, not denial.
You mean like the vicious comments you've made against traditional Catholics, Holiness?
The point is stop future abuse by recognising who the abusers are and making everyone realize they cant get away with it. On the other hand Satan accuses out of spite, not in order to save children from abuse.
I used to think this guy was a diabolical socialist. Now, I am fully convinced he is a simpleton.
My new prediction, it looks more likely he will be removed.
You give him too much credit.
He is so un-holy, I refuse to give him capitalization...he is a pope.
And he is pretty much the reason I have left the Church.
Now is a time for justice.
This disgusting, evil, vile villain must go.
Somebody needs to loosen the screws that hold up his balcony.
I figured I didn’t need a sarcasm tag.
BTW, come back. Don’t leave because Judas sits (temporarily) in Peter’s seat.
Worst Pope ever. Besides Jesuits can’t be Pope. Jesuits aren’t even Catholic. This South American SJW moron is not the Pope. He can keep pretending.
