Pope Francis says God changed, he now loves Gays and Divorces

“I the LORD do not change!” said God as quoted from the Bible, Malachi 3:6, yet Pope Satan, oops Pope Francis says “God is not afraid of new things. The Catholic Church should not fear change.” And God said not once but many times in the Bible that Homosexuality is an “ABOMINATION” punishable by the death penalty: Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, Genesis 19:1-11, Corinthians 6:9-11, 1 Timothy 1:8-10, Jude 7, Romans 1:18-32, etc

The Pope yesterday accused both traditionalists and liberals in the Roman Catholic Church of falling prey to temptation.

Pope Francis spoke of the failings of opposing wings of the Church following the end of the Rome synod on family life which left supporters of gay rights and divorcees disappointed.

In a speech delivered at the close of the gathering of 200 bishops he spoke of ‘moments of desolation, of tensions and temptations’ over the course of the two-week meeting.

The Pope’s hint of anger followed the failure of the synod to agree to acknowledge the ‘positive aspects’ of gay relationships or that homosexuals have ‘gifts and qualities’ to offer to Christians.

Liberal reforms to church doctrine which fell short of the two thirds majority needed for success in the meeting would also have opened the way for Catholics who are divorced and remarried to receive communion, the central sacrament of the church.

Traditionalists, the Pope said, risk a temptation of ‘hostile inflexibility’.

This meant ‘wanting to close oneself within the written word, and not allowing oneself to be surprised by God, by the God of surprises; within the law, within the certitude of what we know and not what we still need to learn and to achieve.

‘From the time of Christ, it is the temptation of the zealous, of the scrupulous, of the solicitous and of the so-called today traditionalists and also of intellectuals.’

But liberals, Pope Francis said, could fall into a temptation of a ‘destructive tendency to goodness’.

He said this ‘in the name of a deceptive mercy binds the wounds without first curing them and treating them; that treats the symptoms and not the causes and the roots.

‘It is the temptation of the do-gooders, of the fearful, and also of the so-called progressives and liberals.’

The Pope said the church must not be discouraged by temptation, adding: ‘Personally, I would be very worried and saddened if it were not for these temptations and these animated discussions.’

The attempt at liberal reform of the church’s teachings are part of Pope Francis’s attempt to steer the Vatican towards new thinking on gay rights and doctrine on marriage and the family.

Francis first made his direction clear in July, when he said that the church should regard homosexuals as ‘brothers’ and added: ‘If a person is gay and seeks God and has goodwill, who am I to judge him?’

A draft document produced by the synod said the church should ‘accept and value’ homosexuals. But this language disappeared from the final document approved by the bishops.

Instead, it said: ‘Men and women with homosexual tendencies should be accepted with respect and sensitivity. Any sign of unjust discrimination in their regard is to be avoided.’

The final paper also emphasised strongly that there was no change in the church’s attitude to gay relationships.

‘No grounds whatsoever exist for assimilating or drawing analogies, however remote, between homosexual unions and God’s design for matrimony and the family,’ it said.

Divorced and remarried Catholics were denied hopes of a reform that would approve their taking communion without any annulment of their first marriage.

The synod said ‘greater theological study’ and ‘further consideration’ were required.

The church does not recognise divorce so remarried Catholics are regarded as adulterers.

The route to approval of a remarriage is through annulment of the first, but the church’s procedures for allowing an annulment can be slow and complicated.

The bishops are to gather again at the Vatican next year to renew their deliberations. Pope Francis said the next synod would try ‘to find concrete solutions to so may difficulties and innumerable challenges that families must confront.’

    What God joins together, man shouldn’t separate. What man joins together must be separated. God doesn’t change and has never changed. From the beginning, He created man, male and female for the purpose of joining together husband and wife as one. He has always loved sinners, even gay sinners but He’s always called sinners to repentance, even straight sinners who engage is immoral sexual relationships.

    This maybe the downfall of the church; how could he say such things? =))

      Assuming that you are Catholic, you know the difference between a venial sin and a mortal sin. Well, eating meat on Friday was once a mortal sin and you know what that means to a dead man who couldn’t get to the confessional in time. But …… someone changed the rule, and the downfall of the church didn’t come about. :D

    Either there is no “biblical” God or the Pope is a misrepresentation of Him. I am voting for both. :)

  • I have nothing against gays or the divorced but I fail to see how God can change his mind over something. What is written in the Bible is written and we can’t go changing what is written regardless of what opinions we may hold. All we can hope to achieve is a change in the interpretation of what is written

      “All we can hope to achieve is a change in the interpretation of what is written”

      – It would be much easier to convert to Judaism and seek the wisdom of the Talmud, where such practice is not only a right – but a duty.

        Easiest would be to believe on Christ who is the Wisdom of God. Those who seek Him, find Him and those who believe in Him, are translated to His Faith.

        • F-EW

          “Christ ….. Those who seek Him, find Him”

          Not a single case of it happening in the history of mankind. There have been many serial killers who claim to “hear voices”. Is that what you mean?

      It is written, both Jew and Gentile disciples were taught to abstain from fornication. Fornication has never been an acceptable practice, not before the Hebrew Law, not according to the Hebrew Law, and not since the preaching of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The Truth never changes.

  • Veda

    What is wrong with the Pope? God never changes!!! Did he forget what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah?? We must pray that the Pope get some light because he is teaching the very opposite of what Jesus taught on everything.

    • B0MB3RM4N

      probably because he is the false prophet and a pedophile?

  • Damien

    Why can’t God change his mind? He is learning just as we do. He’s learning to love butt fuckers, after all, he’s the one that made butt fuckable. I’d like to believe that God too can change his mind and adopt love instead of hate. IF there’s someone to blame for all the butfucking that’s going around, he deserves some of it too. He should have known, anything that’s physically doable, humans will try.

    To the last posting with the foul mouth. You can tell that he is full of the devil. He has a mouth full of vile and venom just like him. Cleanse yourself before you die. God never changes and he is not learning like we are. He knows all already. Study the Bible and stop with your vile cursing and ask God for forgiveness.

    • F-EW

      Do not worry about his “foul mouth”. He may go to hell today, but he is young. There is time enough for God to change the rule about going to hell before he dies.

    This is exactly how all previous religions were deviated and new ones came to correct. People always tailor and misinterpret to satisfy their own needs. Don’t be amazed.. that’s why Christianity came after Judaism was deviated; and that’s why Islam came after Christianity was deviated. I can’t talk about what believes did Christianity correct that was deviated in Judaism…but for Islam, it’s very simple. The fact that Jesus Christ is just a Prophit of God was deviated to be Son of God and then God Himself (God Forbid)… This is human nature. But sticking to the correct believes protects you from all these deviations. Just read history!
