In another vain attempt to win the favor of political-religious liberals, Pope Francis’ spokesperson, the Reverend Federico Lombardi, gave a press release that has given the enemies of The Church enough fodder in order to burn Kim Davis (and natural marriage) to the stake.
In political fashion, Lombardi spun the Davis-Francis encounter by purposely not mentioning the private meeting that occurred between the two and by claiming that the said meeting was not an explicit approval of the intricacies involving Kim Davis’ struggles in defense of Natural Marriage.
“The pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular and complex aspects,”
This is a very cautious, but badly planned political statement that was designed to quell the accusatory voices against Pope Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis.
- The Pope is neither supporting nor denying the PRIVATE meeting with Kim Davis.
- The Pope is not taking a political stance against Kim Davis.
- The Pope is not saying that he is against the “particular and complex aspects” of the Kim Davis legal case.
- The Pope has publicly spoken in favor of “conscientious objection.”
We are compelled to remind Christians that mainstream media is mainly governed by liberal forces that will attempt to mold the perception of the masses in accordance to their anti-Christian agendas. It is also important to remember that Vatican City is a STATE- and that as such, it is important for them to steer clear from agendas that might interfere with their interests.
Regardless of what the Pope seems to say or not say…it is important to remember that the Roman Pontiff does not have the power to unilaterally change CATHOLIC DOCTRINE. The Roman Catholic Catechism states about Homosexuality the following:
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
No matter what the Pope personally believes- he must abide and defend what has been taught and believed everywhere, always and by all.
