|Got That Francis?
"Pope" Francis has dropped another bombshell: “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told journalists, as he flew from Rio de Janeiro to Rome. “The tendency [to homosexuality] is not the problem…They’re our brothers.” He said this in response to queries about sodomite "priests."
Modernists are sly and wicked. Frankie can quickly give the appearance of being orthodox by saying that the tendency to homosexuality is not a sin and homosexuals should not be victimized. Remember, however, he said this in the context of the priesthood. There are several pertinent problems with his statement.
- If someone is a homosexual and searches for the Lord and has good will, then he will know that God wills for him to be celibate. Homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and sinful. They are one of the Four Sins That Cry To Heaven For Vengeance.
- "Who am I to judge"? Ah, aren't you supposed to be the Vicar of Christ on Earth? A "vicar" is one who takes the place of another. Christ is the judge of the universe. Therefore, Frankie should judge homosexual acts as wrong and those who commit them as sinners who need to repent. Then again Frankie doesn't like to be called "pope" (apropos since he's not), he calls himself "Bishop of Rome"; a kind of "first among equals" heresy espoused by the Eastern Orthodox.
- Homosexuality is a personality disorder, and renders the man UNFIT for the priesthood. The Vatican II sect has long abandoned the traditional concept of "occasion of sin." Putting a man with a sexual disorder around other men and children (sodomites are disproportionate child molesters) is an occasion of sin much akin to placing a normal man in the company of women when he has a vow of chastity.
- Even our brothers receive "fraternal correction" (from the Latin "frater" meaning "brother"). He commits a logical fallacy. Frankie claims he shouldn't judge. So that means IN HIS JUDGMENT, it's wrong to judge! Can anyone say, "self-refuting"?
Frankie went on to say, when someone sins and confesses, God both forgives and forgets. “We don’t have the right to not forget.” Not exactly.
- When someone sins and confesses God does indeed forgive IF the penitent is (a) truly sorry for his sins and (b) has a firm resolve to avoid them in the future. Someone who doesn't recognize a sin for what it is when he has been informed of Church teaching and/or refuses to seriously stop his sinful life can't be forgiven.
- The priests' vow makes such sins especially egregious and the disordered person has an unusually hard time stopping, which is one of the reasons such men are per se unfit to be priests.
- God, being omniscient, can't literally forget. He simply refuses to hold anything against us as if it never happened and there's nothing to remember.
- As far as humans are concerned, although forgiveness must be given when sought by one who offends us, "Ordinary friends are not obliged to unite the ties of severed friendship" (See Davis, Henry Moral and Pastoral Theology, Volume I, pg. 317, Sheed & Ward !935). If what happened to sever those ties is serious and you can't trust him, you must forgive and have no ill will, but need not take him back as your friend because you want to protect yourself against the wrong done which you must necessarily remember.
- They fail to take His Words in context. The rest of the passage has Our Lord saying, "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."
- Notice Jesus is not telling us not to judge--He's telling us how to judge. He commands us to take the speck out of our brother's eye (which requires a judgment), but also commands us to stop committing even bigger sins so we can better help him. In other words, do not judge hypocritically.
- Jesus Christ actually commands us to judge in St. John 7:24, " Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.”
With all the crimes committed by his sodomite clerics against children, and the "gay mafia" running the Vatican, Frankie tells us "we don't have the right not to forget'? In reality, we have a duty to remember lest we allow the damning behaviors of the past to continue.
