Francis poses with group that promotes homosexual fornication and same-sex "marriage"


Gloria TV reports:

"After the Ash Wednesday General Audience, Pope Francis posed with the homosexual English LGBT+Catholics Westminster.

The groups’ leader, Martin Pendergast, called the meeting 'one more evidence' that Francis is pro-gay, IndCatholicNews.com (March 11) writes.

Westminster Cardinal Vincent Nichols is close to “LGBT+ Catholics Westminster” although they promote homosexual fornication, gay pseudo-marriage and gay marches.

The Catechism states that homosexual acts are of 'grave depravity' and 'intrinsically disordered'.

As the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has stated:

"Moral conscience requires that, in every occasion, Christians give witness to the whole moral truth, which is contradicted both by approval of homosexual acts and unjust discrimination against homosexual persons. Therefore, discreet and prudent actions can be effective; these might involve: unmasking the way in which such tolerance might be exploited or used in the service of ideology; stating clearly the immoral nature of these unions; reminding the government of the need to contain the phenomenon within certain limits so as to safeguard public morality and, above all, to avoid exposing young people to erroneous ideas about sexuality and marriage that would deprive them of their necessary defences and contribute to the spread of the phenomenon. Those who would move from tolerance to the legitimization of specific rights for cohabiting homosexual persons need to be reminded that the approval or legalization of evil is something far different from the toleration of evil.

In those situations where homosexual unions have been legally recognized or have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty. One must refrain from any kind of formal cooperation in the enactment or application of such gravely unjust laws and, as far as possible, from material cooperation on the level of their application. In this area, everyone can exercise the right to conscientious objection."

The CDF has also taught clearly that, "All support should be withdrawn from any organizations which seek to undermine the teaching of the Church, which are ambiguous about it, or which neglect it entirely. Such support, or even the semblance of such support, can be gravely msinterpreted...Special attention should be given to the...use of Church buildings by these groups, including the facilities of Catholic schools and colleges. To some, such permission to use Church property may seem only just and charitable; but in reality it is contradictory to the purpose for which these institutions were founded, it is misleading and often scandalous." (Letter to Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons).

Birds of a feather flock together. How much evidence do we need? He has welcomed abortionist, atheists, communists, heretics, and especially sodomites and homosexuals. He covers for sodomites and those friendly to the sin and promotes them and has them near him all the time. What does that say? Connect the dots.

He's made it obvious all along in so many ways. At this point it's ridiculous to deny it. All part of the plan. This is why sodomites elected him, to advance the cause.

The image reminds me of Jesus when he ate with sinners. Jesus welcomed the prostitute, the sinners.

THE PRESENT SODOM AND GOMORRAH

Though I am the Light
you walk in the darkness
Though I am the Might
you follow the barkless

Though I am the Truth
you prefer the lier’s booth
Though I am the Way
you say it’s ok to be gay

Though I am the Life
you choose eternal death
Where weeping and gnashing is rife
and for sure there won’t be any Meth

Oh you stubborn generation
stop this horrific aberration
You keep flirting with the seducer
so don’t blame Me, blame the abuser

Though I am the utter Merciful 
I’m also the eternal Just
Your behavior is extremely hurtful
My patience you finally bust.

Wake up and smell the coffee or it will be too late.
Lord, please, hasten Your Coming

Jesus also admonished the prostitute to "go and sin no more" (John 8:11). He never endorsed a sinful lifestyle.

THE CHURCH IN AGONY



Penance Penance Penance

to avoid Divine vengeance

for not showing any remorse

and trying our will to enforce



The reign of the Impostor has arrived

the Church, of TRUTH is being deprived

the whole world hangs on his lips

while being readied for a total eclipse



The true followers of Christ

trying to pull off the heist

are persecuted for non-compliance

and being countered with defiance




When it will seem that all is lost

everything sacred has been tossed

God will deliver us from our agony

and reign forever in all His Majesty



SO LET IT BE WRITTEN, SO LET IT BE DONE

A M E N

Catholic Investor: There was quite a significant difference in what Jesus did and what Francis is doing. Jesus imparted the true faith and admonished the sinner.....Francis gives the sinner the green light and says: 'Who am I to judge?' and ....'You were born that way, and Jesus loves you the way you are...no need to change.' QUITE a different message. The opposite of Jesus' message.

Well said TLM!

There are some - even many Catholics, poorly instructed in their faith, who believe that all judging is wrong. These Catholics apparently believe that love of enemies means condoning vice and sin. In the words of Dr. Germain Grisez, one of the finest moral theologians of our time, "It might seem to follow that love must accept everyone, even enemies, just as they are, and to affirm them even in the error or sin which is present in them. But the law of lovedoes not require indiscriminate affirmation of everything about other persons (see Saint Thomas Aquinas, S.t., 2-2, q.34, a.3). One's love must be like Jesus'. He loves sinners and brings them into communion with himself in order to overcome their error and sin. When the scribes and pharisees bring a woman caught in adultery to Jesus, he not only saves her from being stoned to death but warns her not to sin again (see John 8:3-11). In a true sense, Jesus is not judgmental, he sets aside the legalistic mentality, readily forgives sinners, does not condemn the world, and points out that those who refuse to acknowledge their sinfulness are self-condemned by the truth they violate (see John 3:16-21). But he realistically recognizes sinners as sinners and never accepts error as truth...Similarly, if Christians' love of neighbor is genuine, it not only permits but REQUIRES THEM both to 'hold fast to what is good' and to 'hate what is evil' (Romans 12:9)."

And again, according to Dr. Grisez, "Vatican II neatly formulates the prohibition against judging others" 'God alone is the judge and searcher of hearts; for that reason, he forbids us to make judgments about the internal guiltof anyone' (Gaudium et Spes, No. 28). This norm, however, does not preclude JUDGMENTS necessary for determining that one should try to dissuade others from committing sins or to encourage them to repent if they have sinned."

Very often, the poorly instructed Catholic will be heard to remark "I don't like the word 'judge,' or to those of us who defend the Church's authentic Magisterial teaching while exposing error they will say: "You're judging."

What if we are? Judging isn't always sinful. It is only sinful when we judge another's interior dispositions, when we judge their soul. But we are entirely free to judge words, ideas and actions which fail to hold up when placed in the Lumen Christi (Light of Christ). Sacred Scripture (which these confused souls obviously don't spend much time with) makes this abundantly clear: "should you not judge those inside the Church"? (1 Corinthians 5:12), and again: "the saints will judge the world and angels" (1 Corinthians 6:2-3), and again: "the spiritual man judges all things" (1 Corinthians 2:15), and again: "Let prophets speak and the others judge" (1 Corinthians 14:29).

Not all judging is sinful. This is just common sense. Our legal system is structured in such a way that when a person commits a crime, he or she is tried before a judge and sentenced (judged) if found guilty. Likewise, it is our right (and duty) to judge words, ideas and actions which are not in conformity with the Gospels or which fail to conform to the Magisterial teaching of Christ's Church and to expose these as fallacious and/or sinful. In so doing, we are not rendering a judgment against a person. We are following the teaching of the great Saint Augustine (Bishop, Father and Doctor of the Church), who said: "Interficere errorem, diligere errantem" - kill the error, love the one who errs. This killing of what is sinful or erroneous is necessary if our charity - our love of neighbor - is to be genuine. Otherwise, our love is counterfeit. It is a fraud.
