He says that blessing gay marriages is no different than blessing crooked businessmen.

Seems to me like he's just making things worse with that line of reasoning.

quote:

Pope Francis defended his decision to allow priests to bless same-sex couples, calling criticism of the move “hypocrisy.”

He argued that blessing a homosexual is no different from blessing a businessman who exploits people and has emphasized that the blessings do not constitute formal Church approval for same-sex unions.

The current Pope is the epitome of hypocrisy and has totally sold out the Catholic religion.

I know many devout Catholics, I am not one, who despise this current pope.
Several are seriously considering leaving the Catholic church for an alternative.

Yup, you don’t “bless SIN”, on either part, the businessman or the LGBTQ+++.

He should read the Summa's discussion on public and occult sinners.

You cannot necessarily tell a crooked person by looking at them. Cannot say the same for the mentally challenged weirdo’s

Here's the thing though, and this is where Pope Francis really needs to clarify, the priest is not blessing the actions of the businessman. He's blessing the businessman. Is the priest blessing the relationship or is he simply blessing the people in the relationship?

There's a difference and he's not helped matters with his supposed "clarifications."

I do not understand Gods plan for this new Pope but I trust Gods plan.

I know for sure that this new progressivism and push by the left to further interject anti morality into human life is satans plan to separate Gods people from His grace and love.

I have criticized the Catholic Church and still don’t understand why certain things are the way they are. But I do know it’s all Gods plan and that’s never wrong. Does it mean God has evolved and changed his opinion about homosexuality and other deviant lifestyle? Absolutely not. But what it has done is cause a lot of people especially Christians to seek Gods truth on the subject and reinforcing their faith.

So even though I can be confused about some things in the Church and maybe not agree with them to my understanding. I can return to one Apostolic Catholic Church and serve God and be in communion with Him.

All things work for the Glory of God and all things will be made right.
