As Usual the Proggies Have It Wrong…. What the Pope Is Actually Saying!

The Proggies think they understand everything.  How can an anti-religious political ideology understand any religion, their teachings and their origins especially when the proggies cherry-pick passages from the Bible to prove their pathetic points.

Fay Voshell says it all…

HuffPo and other liberal publications can stop rejoicing. The Pope has not turned into a radical progressive.

On the contrary, he is merely affirming what every pope before him has said.

The Holy Father is merely making the proper distinction between the pastoral role of the church and the church as the Christian counterculture confronting the evils of society. He is advising the faithful not to forget the two aims of the Church, one of which is loving evangelization and discipleship; the other of which is firm confrontation of the distorted standards of the world.

The pastoral role of the Church is basically as follows: All sinners — that’s all of us — are invited to accept the forgiveness of God freely offered through the gospel of grace. Each is invited to travel on the Christian journey of sanctification, seeking every day to become more like Jesus Christ.

The countercultural role of the Church means that at the same time the Church has a pastoral and evangelistic ministry that includes anyone who is a seeker of The Way, the Church takes a radically prophetic stand against the contemporary assaults on a transcendent God, his character and his commands. The Church retains its unyielding ideals and clear, unchanging directives concerning sexual behavior, marriage, and the sacredness of life. Such ideals remain bedrock foundations.

Progressives should not, then, expect the pope to endorse their agenda in any respect. Such matters as gay marriage, eradication of the distinctions between the sexes, and abortion on demand will not soon be endorsed by the leader of the Catholic Church.

The Left should expect to be deeply disappointed in this Pope.

Thank God.

    the pope is saying that SIN is SIN is SIN, murder, sodomy, theft are ALL sin and if we continue we will be destroyed.

    More important than liberal idiots is the comments I’ve seen from regular folks…now, some of these people are likely misunderstanding, themselves, what the Pope is on about…but the thing the Pope is doing is inviting people back to Church who left (or never even considered it) because of what the MSM said the Church is about. The MSM says the Church is anti-gay, ill-informed people (ie, those who also re-elected Obama) buy it and so either drift away from the Church or won’t even consider it as a possibility. Here comes the Pope just stating unmistakably what the Church actually says … and he’s clever enough to say it in a manner which the MSM will broadcast because the MSMers – being both ignorant and stupid – will THINK its change when it is nothing of the kind. The Pope just showed all of us how to communicate non-liberal ideas in a liberal MSM.

    says the Church is anti-gay,
    anti sodomy (sin) it is, anti NON practicing (repentant) homosexuality it is NOT. There IS a big difference.
