Thy Word Our Law?

The Pope has endorsed same-sex civil unions.
Okay, now, on one level, at least he didn’t endorse same-sex “weddings”.  But you Papists:  show me any support, or even tolerance,  in the Bible—any at all—for homosexuality.
Take your time.

  1. And I get attacked for saying the Reformation was a good thing.

    You Catholics still think the Pope is infallible?

    Your Pope is being run by Satan. And support of him is support of Satan.

  2. Has somebody told the Pope that homosexuals do not beget more followers of the Church?  Homosexuality is like, you know, birth control – and not the Vatican roulette kind, either.

  3. Actually, let’s be totally honest. Most Catholics, when you really, really press them, will be forced to admit that non Catholics are not really Christians. My Marriage to my wife does not count because it was not performed by one of their priests in front of an alter with a bit of the body of a dead saint in it.

    The Catholic Church is lost, like every other institution leftists take over. It cannot be saved be anything other than God himself, and frankly, God does not appear to be in the saving us from the Left sort of mood this century.

  4. Ann Barnhardt is correct. Per canon law, Jorge Mario Bergolio is not the legitimate Pope. The title still rightly belongs to Benedict XVI, who did not tender a valid resignation.

    In addition, papal infallibility applies only to situations when the Pope is speaking ex cathedra on matters of church doctrine.

    Also, note this:

    “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.” — Matthew 16:18-19

    The Catholic Church is not lost, for it has survived bad popes and even antipopes before, and will do so now.

    I keep hearing Catholics use this as a dodge. Let’s say he stands up there and says this? What is to stop him?

    I can easily interpret that as the Christian Church. It does not have to be the Catholic one itself. Saying so really means you don’t think non-Catholics are really Christian. It always comes down to that.

    The Catholic Church is as lost as almost every University in the world. The Left wins, it always wins, does nothing but win, and is never, ever pushed back.

    God is nowhere to be found in saving us from the Left. THEY WILL WIN FOREVER AND EVER.

  6. “It is believable because the current Pope is a Leftist Commie. I am sure he believes it”

    And you are the latest entry in the “Media Sucker” column.  Thanks for playing!  Make sure you denounce Trump the next time CNN says so, because it must be true–the Media said so.

    The Pope did not endorse civil unions.  Once again, the Media is lying about the Church and Christianity in general.

    Who said the Pope is infallible?

    Pius IX. .

    Damn, and I’m not even Catholic.  Do your research.  Assume the Media lies about EVERYTHING, most especially CHRISTIANITY.

    What is your point?
    I’m not Catholic either.   We Prots don’t have one infallible leader.  My point was, what’s the point of having one if he’s not gonna cleave unto the Scriptures?

    I don’t care if he said it or not. The Pope is a commie.

    Yes and this was the reason for priestly celibacy.  The church didn’t  want any heirs of the body  laying claim to what those sons of the nobility who had entered the priesthood would inherit, or amass.

    Your link doesn’t convince me the Pope didn’t endorse civil unions.  If in fact he didn’t, great!  Because I have never been able to get over my apocalyptic fears. But specifically why do you say he didn’t?

    Going from memory, but in the Church before 1054, matters of doctrine and dogma were confirmed by Ecumenical Councils, where the bishops and other representatives of the ancient Patriarchies gathered to work out doctrines such as the nature of Christ, the Holy Spirit, etc., and to strike down heresies (Arianism, Nestorianism, etc,). Which seems a much more reliable way of determining doctrines, at least to me (since man is fallible).

    I don’t let the fallibility of man keep me from Christ’s original church. I can love the Church and have reverence for the seat of Peter without loving this particular imposter of a Pope.

    thats what my BMD says—and he’s a Jew.

    So you mean only if he issues a bull?  We went through this before with the “lead us not into temptation” kerfluffle.

    Also, note this:

    There’s sump’n to that.  I read  Gary  Willis’ Papal Sin.

  14. There’s your helper.  The rest is up to you.

    Be sure to leave links to the equivalent vitriol posting for the Baptists’ recent adoption Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as a tool within the church, and the ones that flambe the various Protestant denominations that now allow both women and homosexuals as clergy.  Include the posts that lash the denominations that poo-poo or outright accept abortions and unwed motherhood and serial marriages via divorce.  Do proclaim how the headless Reformation churches are so superior to whatever you choose to target.

    I didn’t expect this level of Anti-Catholic, or really any level of anti-Christian denominational hate, from this site.  You should also research the Gell-Mann Effect.  It might be of some value to you in the future when spinning up over a story in the Media.

  15. “hey i have all sorts of anti protestant hate from Catholics, so we are even.”

    Nice attempt on that Golden Rule application.  “I give it a ’16’, Dick.  You can’t dance to it.”

  16. What amazes me about this is you folks clearly don’t have enough enemies.  There are so few people beleaguering you in the modern world in the social and political arenas that you decide that you need to foment internecine conflict among Christian denominations to open up a new set of fronts in the religious arena.  Not enough conflict with anti-Christian bias and hate from the Media and other secular outlets, as well as from other religions, you decide you need as many Christian enemies as you can make.

    Strong work.

    —okay, thanks.  Maybe he didn’t mean civil unions by “right to be legally covered”. Maybe he meant weddings?

    no I agree, mainline Protestantism has also gone round the bend.  The Christian Left is insane.  I’m not even religious.  I’m talkin’ ‘bout the Bible. He may read it who runs.

    The only times a pope spoke an ex catherda decree were to declare the Immaculate Conception of Mary and the Bodily Assumption of Mary after her repose as articles of faith.

    For what it’s worth, I was brought up in the Southern Baptist Church and drank in anti-Papism as mother’s milk. As an adult I was led to the the Ancient Faith and the Orthodox Church. I kinda see both sides here.
