It seems ever since the Church elected this no-nothing to be their Pope, he has done everything he could in his public pronouncements to make the faith as anti-God's teachings as possible and treat the Vatican like a nation that needs to embrace secular (lack of) values
Then we read this morning Francis gives priests infinite power to absolves sinful women who had abortions of their moral crime
According to the Washington Times, "Francis wrote in the Apostolic Letter made public by the Vatican on Monday that “there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled” with God. But he also wrote: “I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life.”"
Talk about having your communion wafer and eating it too...
As much as we in this very sinful, secular society want to bend and twist all laws and edicts to conform with the will of the masses, it is hard to ever believe the Lord would ever forgive a woman for taking life based on needing to keep her man, her job or just for convenience as are the reasons most abortions occur
Sorry to shock and upset some people but Pope Francis is nothing special..
He is a man; a person like you and we.. He eats, he sleeps, he urinates and deficates and farts and picks boogies out of his nose with a tissue like we all do.
So many people do not understand how a religion works.. They demand it conform to them instead of how it is Supposed to be.. they either conform to IT and make the sincere effort it takes to be part of it or don't lie to yourself and others by saying you are 'Catholic'
This goes for All people of All faiths, not just Catholics
Not likely.. Those who want to kill their babies on demand will cheer and those who know how vile it is, will hate this worthless piece of shit Pope even more
It is interesting though how society has gotten so secular and progressive that virtually none of the Ten Commandments holds any meaning on a nation-level and certainly not in the hearts n' minds of most people..
Let's take a few moments to look at each Commandment and analyze how they are twisted, manipulated or outright ignored.. We'll present each Commandment in plain English rather than 'Thall shalt not'
Well in literal term, by tolerating people with beliefs outside of Judeo-Christian teachings, especially the cult belief system known as Islam, we are pretty much all breaking this one
There either is the God of the Ten Commandments or there is not.. The notion that everyone just believe what they want as long as not hurting anyone is a secular concept meant to keep the peace
This is extremely important to understand..
Historically this gets in the way of commerce which is the true 'God' to most people.. money
You believe in God or you don't..
If you do, you accept His teachings and His word Trumps (no pun meant) anything the State says or does.. Or you pledge your allegiance to your nation's flag first in which case you are as much an outsider to religion as the Atheist
2) No graven images or likenesses
This means if you believe Jesus is the son of God and the two are One, then there should be no artwork of Jesus on your wall and this includes Churches
And all those visual interpretations of God wearing a white robe sitting on his throne in the clouds you see in art and TV/Movies.. That is going against the 2nd Commandment
Some will read this and think we are ridiculous but remember there's no 11th Commandment that says 'These previous 10 Commandments are very flexible based on the individual's personal desire and is free to respect or ignore as few or many as one wishes.. totally up to you'
A person either respects and tries to abide by All 10 or don't bother
Religion is not a buffet
We all say God-Damn it at one time or another..
Some feel regret afterward.. Some don't even think twice..
In America, you can go to jail for telling your neighbor you're going to kill them (making a terroristic threat) or outwardly wishing the President permanent harm...
But curse out God and.. ehh.. ~shrugs
Just shows how secular government and society rank things..
For Jewish people, this is Saturday and for Christians, this is Sunday
And for Americans of both persuasions, this is football weekend.
Blue laws are a thing of the past in this country.. Now we're all free to spend our Sabbath time shopping, watching TV, going to the fitness center and mowing the lawn or raking leaves
You want to attend services.. You don't.. No one cares.. No peer pressure.. Do what you want.. Ehh. Free Country.. Ehh..
Most people love their parents so its not too hard to honor them... Just send Ma a card in May and Pa gets one in June.. Done
Of course if Mom and Dad prefer their child not drink, smoke pot, engage in experimental same-sex relationships, get tattoos or piercings or most anything else the son or daughter wants to do, it usually is ignored and the parents are forced to accept it
Asian culture respects their elders.. American culture.. not so much
Yes do not kill.. Unless its an unborn baby then according to Prick-Pope Francis, you are absolved of all sin and guilt so plunge away...
And It is OK to kill if wearing a uniform and your superior yells 'Fire!'.. Just do not dare shoot before the order is given or after commanded to cease fire.. Then you will be in trouble
And its OK if you kill to protect yourself as long as a secular court with a jury of 12 nincompoops decide your were legally justified
You can also kill animals with a proper license.. Just can't kill a domesticated house pet because the life of a dog has more value than the life of his canine kin, the wolf
Secular law could not give a damn who you put your penis inside or who you let inside you..
Drive 5 miles over the speed limit and you get punished with a ticket and fine.. Lie to the court under oath and to jail you go..
Do something sinful which breaks up marriage and one's family, which increases the chances of divorce along with spreading of STDs or HIV and the government says a big Ehh.. ~shrugs..
Tell your priest you committed adultery and you are 'punished' with 5 'Art fathers' and 3 'Hail Mary's'.. or is that football lingo.. lol
Secular society cares about this because you can not have an economy or functioning society if private property is not respected
Of course if one steals for need, it is not judged as harshly as for greed
I don't see in the 8th Commandment where that distinction is made
This means to not lie about another for your own benefit
Not only does secular government not care if this is broken but actively encourages it with coercing suspects to give up others, even parents or their children for their own benefit or doing less or no time behind bars
Also we encourage neighbors to report anything suspicious about each other even if not factually sure its true
If secular government really tried to enforce this one, the entire global economy would be kaput because most purchases one makes is not based on need or gifts for others..
It is about looking, feeling or being better outwardly than your neighbor, coworker or society at large..
Most watches cost between $20 and $150.. So why does someone need a Rolex?
Most vehicles cost between $15k and $60k.. So why does someone need a Ferrari?
You know the reason..
Or those who cheer and support his dictum?
