The other day I posted my thoughts about the dreadfully confusing and anxiogenic remarks on video made by Francis in which he obviously condoned same-sex civil unions, as he has done in the past. HERE
Some have tried to explain away the remarks. I get that. When possible even I have tried to do that because fairness requires that we look not only at the worst possible interpretation of statements that seem to contradict the Church’s teaching about important matters. This time, I can’t do that. Francis used the legal language used in Argentina about civil unions, “convivencia civil”. What he said wasn’t about everyone treating each other with respect or getting along. It was about civil unions.
In my previous remarks, I cited a footnote in the 2003 CDF document “Considerations regarding proposals to give legal recognition to unions between homosexual persons” was signed on 3 June, the Feast of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, slaughtered by a homosexual pederast king.
“It should not be forgotten that there is always “a danger that legislation which would make homosexuality a basis for entitlements could actually encourage a person with a homosexual orientation to declare his homosexuality or even to seek a partner in order to exploit the provisions of the law”.
Today I read in a tweet…
“On Thursday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro asked his country’s legislature to consider a same-sex marriage bill, citing words of #PopeFrancis
In the developing world, Maduro will not be the last politician to use that approach.”
