Pope Francis Takes Surprising Stance on Gay Priests, Prompting Rebuke from World

Again, this is a case of Pope Francis skirting the reality of the situation, in which the Catholic Church is either fostering pedophiles or creating them.

Pope Francis

The Catholic Church is in trouble, and no amount of softball answers from Pope Francis is going to right the ship.

For decades, perhaps longer, there have been whispers of a horrid culture lurking beneath the surface of the church.  Systemic sexual child abuse seems to be an implied trait of the higher rungs of Catholicism as of late, thanks in no small part to the newly digitized world.  You see, we, as concerned people of faith, are able to share information at the same speed that the church can.  In the pre-internet days, this wasn’t possible, allowing the Catholic bigwigs to get out in front of such stories, pressuring local law enforcement and journalistic establishments into squashing or underreporting the damage.

Now, with Twitter and Facebook, it’s far more difficult for Catholic head honchos to keep their secrets.

Pope Francis, for what it’s worth, has been an abysmal failure in dealing with the ongoing issue, even going so far as to compare the victims of these attacks to the unholy entities below.

Now, in a shockingly archaic and perhaps bigotry-adjacent statement, the Pope is now delegitimizing the idea of gay priests in the Catholic religion.

After months of seemingly avoiding the issue following the Pennsylvania grand jury report that alleged 300 predator priests molested (mostly male) victims over a 75-year period while church hierarchy covered it up, Pope Francis has given perhaps the harshest denunciation of his pontificate regarding homosexuality in the priesthood.

According to the New York Post, Pope Francis “unequivocally” stated over the weekend that “homosexual men should not be admitted into the Catholic clergy and gay priests should practice celibacy or leave the church.”

“There’s no room for that kind of affection,” Pope Francis said regarding same-sex attracted men in the priesthood.

Pope Francis made his remarks during an interview with Spanish priest Fernando Prado in which he referred to homosexuality in the priesthood as a “serious issue.”

Pope Francis’ take on the issue is remarkable in that he has often been seen as a socially accepting Pope, whose stances on certain subjects are bordering on those of the “social justice” trope.

Pedophilia in the church is an abomination of trust and faith, (not to mention the law),  and it is simply unacceptable to equate that wicked practice with homosexuality as a whole…especially in America where all are “created equal”.

Again, this is a case of Pope Francis skirting the reality of the situation, in which the Catholic Church is either fostering pedophiles or creating them.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…

This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision

When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.

Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long. Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru. Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages. “At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said. Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1910950709034153 “The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.” Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking. “There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.” His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick…
