At Hell’s Bible we find an editorial:
Pope Francis Walks the Talk
Vatican Signals on Gays and Remarriage Are a Hopeful Beginning
A half-century after the historic changes of the Second Vatican Council, Pope Francis is showing his intent to drive a comparably ambitious agenda for the Roman Catholic Church in the 21st century.
The current synod of bishops in Rome, called by Francis to encourage reform and modernization, [ahhh… that’s why he called it!] set a ringing tone of compassion this week with an opening call for a more welcoming attitude toward gay people, unmarried couples, divorced Catholics who remarry, and children in these unions. [See my earlier post about what the MSM was going to do next. HERE Did I call it?]
The bishops’ report on their first week of private discussions did not immediately change church doctrine. [Not immediately… but there’s hope! As long as Francis the Hopepful, the most wonderfullest Pope evhur, the first Pope ever to smile or kiss a baby can fend off those hate-filled, close-minded mouth-breathing conservatives!] But it signaled the pope’s determination to have the church look anew at the realities of the modern world, [How revolutionary. John Paul and Benedict never considered the modern world as it is. Nope. Never. What was that phrase, again? “Dictatorship of Relativism”?] including what the bishops [No! Archbp. Forte, not “the bishops”] were moved to call the “positive aspects of civil unions and cohabitation” — a formulation unthinkable in an era when the church denounced such Catholics as “living in sin.” [But doesn’t now. So, you would think that now the NYT is a fan of the Church. Right?]
The synod’s summary language about gays and lesbians was even more remarkable.
Moderation is ON.
