Francis: The “Gay”- Friendly Pope…

Francis: The “Gay”- Friendly Pope…

Does [Pope Francis] Lead us to Gay Church?
BY Jean-Pierre Dickès, 8/14/17
[Excellent Google Translation]

The case began with the famous “Who am I to judge? ” about homosexuality. The curious reflection of a pope whose role is precisely to transmit the spiritual and moral heritage of the Church. Teaching itself dating back to the sixth commandment given by God to Moses. The justification of this practical relativism was the famous word “mercy” aimed at validating “concrete situations” in order to “accompany and integrate”. Things could have stopped there. Now we find ourselves faced with a new form of ethics which was to materialize by an avalanche of precise facts which ultimately lead to a new Church which can be called homosexual; It is a veritable apocalyptic avalanche aimed at transforming the Church and subjecting it to gender, the necessary passage of transhumanism, this ideology wanting to create a new man. It is a frontal and programmed attack against the natural order willed by God in his creation.

* We have already forgotten the famous text known as Relatio of mid-term at the synod on the family in 2014. It had been massively rejected in a resounding way. “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community: are we able to welcome these people, by guaranteeing them a fraternal space in our communities? … Can our communities be able to provide this, accept and value their sexual orientation without compromising the Catholic doctrine on family and marriage? “It is therefore a question of “valuing sexual orientation” in this case sodomy. It was indeed [Pope Francis] who wanted to insert this abominable text in the final document of the synod.

* At the beginning of his pontificate, [Pope Francis] named a notorious homosexual, Mgr. Battista Ricca, as prelate of his own papal house and at the head of the Vatican bank.

* The famous “Who am I to judge” referred to an active homosexual for whom it is undoubtedly demonstrated that he was involved in many sodomite relationships, including a young man with whom he was caught in a blocked elevator.

* In an interview with America magazine in September 2013, Pope [Francis] laughed at the very idea of ​​disapproving homosexual conduct: “One person once asked me provocatively if I had approved of homosexuality. I answered with another question, “Tell me, when God looks at a gay person, does he support the existence of that person with love or refuse and condemn this person? ”

* [Pope Francis] has since made a great show by meeting personally and physically embracing an assortment of homosexuals and transgenders, even accepting the “marriage” of a woman claiming to be a man who “married” another woman.

* The Pope ostensibly embraced the hand and concelebrated the Mass with a Don Michele de Paolis, a notorious pro-homosexual militant priest and animator of a gay site. This is a public sacrilege. Then [Pope Francis] invited him to dinner. At the moment of the priest’s departure he had an ambiguous sentence: “Everything is possible!”  A warning quickly forgotten by all. And yet …

* [Pope Francis] refused to rule against the legalization of “homosexual unions,” “gay marriages,” or even “gay adoption” in Italy, Ireland, the United States and Malta. His excuse was that “the Pope does not place himself in the concrete policy of a country.”  But he is the first to defend immigration and to invest in the issue of “climate change.”  Eminently political issues.

* One of the rare and frank episcopal opponents of the emerging “Gay Church” is Charles Chaput, appointed Archbishop by Pope Benedict XVI. During the synod of which he was a member, he had presented guidelines prohibiting the giving of Holy Communion to same-sex couples or remarried divorcees. In the hierarchical order, being archbishop of Philadelphia, he should have been named cardinal. From consistory to consistory, [Pope Francis] challenged him. Bishop Chaput was strongly criticized by Father Thomas Rosica, attaché of the Vatican Press Office during the Synod. This priest is nicknamed the “attack dog” of the LGBT.

* The Jesuit James Martin, is a fervent defender of the gay priesthood and a fortiori unions of this nature. Normally he should have been “crossed” by the Pope. On the contrary, [Pope Francis] appointed him consultant of the Secretariat of Social Communications of the Vatican. He is the author of a book entitled “Building a Bridge”. This bridge must connect the Church to the LGBT. The teaching of the catechism is rejected; Sodomy can not be a sin. It is God who created homosexuals, so their morals can not be condemned.

* Cardinal Walter Kasper, is an arch-progressive German prelate. He headed the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity. He is the favorite theologian of [Pope Francis]. He defended the legalization of homo marriage in Ireland. For him, if the majority of the people agree with laws of this nature, it is legitimate to “recognize their rights”. In other words, it is the people who define what is true and good. The Church must align with the politically correct. Curious approach. Jesus told us that “you are in the world, but you are not of the world” (John 17: 14-18).

* Another case is that of the well-named Cardinal Reinhard Marx. Concerning “gay marriage” he said: “The Christian position is one thing. It is another thing to ask if I can respect all the laws on Christian moral concepts. Anyone who does not understand that one does not automatically lead to the other, has not understood the very essence of modern society “. A convoluted way to say that the Church does not have to defend its morality in the face of the present world.

* Cardinal Christoph Schönborn was the Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. He said, “We can and must respect the decision to form a same-sex union, [and] look for ways in civil law to protect their lives with the laws to ensure such protection.” However, he is considered a conservative. He was the one who carried the project of Amoris Laetitia on the question of remarried divorcees. The Pope considers him a “great theologian.” Who presented in his own cathedral of Vienna a gay couple who had adopted a child of black race. This couple has ordered a three-year-old girl in South Africa.

* With Bishop Vincenzo Paglia we reach the height. According to the newspaper La Croix on 17 June, he was charged with criminal conspiracy, obstructing the investigation, fraud against the town of Narni (Umbria, central Italy), misuse of credit and misappropriation Of funds. The accusation is carried by the prosecutor of Terni, Elisabetta Massini. Notwithstanding this situation, [Pope Francis] placed him at the head of the Academy for Life and the Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family. He has exploded these two institutions by introducing supporters of euthanasia and abortion. He wears sunglasses whose frame is rainbow LGBT. But above all he made a gigantic fresco of “homoerotic” inspiration in the choir of his cathedral in Terni. Pushing vice up to represent itself with the episcopal cap. This fresco was made by a notorious homosexual artist.

* The American Cardinal Blase Cupich, is an LGBT actively supported by [Pope Francis]; He announced that he was for the reception of Holy Communion by “homosexual couples;” this during his installation as archbishop of Chicago. It is based on the pretext of the “inviolable conscience.” We are in full Protestantism. For him, heterosexual adulteresses can also communicate.

* Another case is that of Cardinal Dolan. His archdiocese is full of homosexual priests. A professional player named Michael Sam publicly revealed his homosexuality in 2014. The Archbishop said on national television: “Good for him. I would have no sense of judgment on him. God bless him … The same Bible that tells us that we teach the virtues of chastity and the virtue of fidelity and marriage also tells us not to judge people. So I would say, “Well done!” For Saint Patrick, the Irish are traditionally a parade, a kind of folk parade. Dolan was named “Grand Marshall” of this parade despite the presence of a group of “gay pride” with its banners.

* Cardinal Joseph Tobin, named Cardinal by [Pope Francis] and head of the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey (New York suburb), gave his blessing in July to a gay pilgrimage that ended with a Sacrilegious Mass at the Cathedral. One of the militant homosexuals who participated in the demonstration called the cardinal’s blessing a “miracle.” The New York Times greeted the event with the title: “As the Church changes, a cardinal welcomes gays; They embrace a “miracle.” Tobin is a very active supporter of Father Martin named above. The same is true of Bishop Robert McElroy, Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego. This bishop is one of the recruits of the expanding corps of gay shock troops that [Pope Francis] settles in the key dioceses; He praised Martin’s book and proclaimed beyond the teaching of the catechism that homosexuality is “intrinsically disordered.” He believes that homosexuals can communicate.

* We will not return to the case of Bishop Cocopalmerio, President of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts. In what is surely only the tip of a very large iceberg, his private secretary Luigi Capozzi, was arrested amidst a homosexual orgy whose participants were drugged. Capozzi completely “shot” was hospitalized by the gendarmerie. When one looks at Saint Peter of Rome, one sees a building on the left, seat of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It was here that these great deeds unfolded. Capozzi at the request of his boss was proposed to the episcopate.

The characteristic of all these prelates is that they were promoted by [Pope Francis] with the exception of course of Bishop Chaput. There are, of course, others like Bishop Robert Barron, an American theologian who denounces the Church for condemning homosexuality.

The only conclusion to be drawn is that [Pope Francis] is preparing the advent of the Gay Church at full speed. Notably by eliminating the most conservative elements opposing him in one way or another.   Jean-Pierre Dickès


As readers will note, I’ve had to change “Bergoglio” to [Pope Francis] umpteen times in the above article.  It strikes me that those who insist on using the Pope’s family surname, not only show lack of respect for the papal office but they minimise the gravity of what this Pope is saying and doing.  If only it were “Bergoglio” saying and doing all these awful things, that would be bad enough – bad enough that any Catholic would promote homosexuality – but not as grave as these words and actions falling from the lips of a reigning pope.  Why can’t Catholics, who are rightly outraged at Pope Francis, see that they are letting him off the hook by minimising the damage he is doing to the Church as pontiff… Who cares about “Bergoglio”? 

Anyway, comments invited.  Do you agree with the author that Pope Francis is “preparing the advent of the ‘Gay  Church’ at full speed” or is there another explanation for the facts detailed in the above article?  But please – it was irritating enough having to keep deleting “Bergoglio” and typing [Pope Francis] in the article, do not make extra work for me by using the Pope’s family surname in your comments.  Please and thank you!

    There really is nothing to add to the above Article. As far as I see US as in the Laity are just keeping these Homosexuals in the grand way that there accustomed to . From Martin all through the Queer Bishops and Cardinals their having their cake and eating it . As for Our Pope Well he just keeps getting better and better as far as The Homosexuals are concerned. Men of God never. I posted on Church Militant earlier on about the Teachings of Jesus Christ. Not once in all the readings throughout the Bible to my own favourite The Imatation of Christ have I seen anything on saving Polar Bears or Global Warming. Thermostatically Controlled Earth or Planting Trees . These Men are just Wolves among Sheep. Feathering their own nests and God knows what else they get up to .

    I don’t know if you have that organization called “Quest” north of Hadrian’s Wall, but they seem to have become much more active and assertive with the advent of this papacy too. They are an organization of self-styled “LGBT Catholics” who think that the Church should not only tolerate, but embrace and celebrate their disordered attractions.

    Bishops and Archbishops are now making time for them in their diaries whereas a few years ago they were kept at arms length.

    Its amazing what damage and corruption can be wrought by a little ambiguity from those in high places. Its like they don’t even realize that speaking ambiguously so as to mislead is in itslef a grave sin against the 8th Commandment.

    Yes, Pope Francis it seems is dismantling the moral teaching of the Church and not just to open the way for active homosexuals, he is also clearing the way for the divorced and remarried, for abortionists and for those who favour euthanasia.

    But where are all the Catholic prelates while the Pope is making his agenda perfectly clear to the fallen world whose standard he bears? Not a single word out of any of them! Cowards all!

    Diplomatically worded opposition to a Pope like Francis is not remotely acceptable as a means of protecting the souls under their care. It may be a way they can protect their high office with all the trappings and avoid persecution, but it does nothing for the truth that Our Lord expects His consecrated souls to publicly uphold regardless of consequences and regardless of the lofty position of the one their duty obliges them to correct. Perhaps Cardinal Burke, Archbishop Tartaglia et al will take note of this reality and finally stop being “Wishy-Washy” in their opposition to Pope Francis’ errors.

    I doubt if they will, however, if the sermon I heard from our SSPX priest this morning is a true reflection of the hierarchy of truths, which I have no reason to doubt.

    Father explained first of all how he used to translate the very lengthy writings of Pope John Paul II from Latin to English for publication in the Angelus. One such writing he recalls asserted that the Holy Ghost does not proceed from both the Father and the Son (Divine Revelation), but that He proceeds only from the Father (heresy). It is Father’s contention that we have seen many such erroneous writings from the hands of the Modernist Popes since Vatican II. I would remind all at this point that Benedict XVI has always championed the condemned principle of separation of Church and State.

    Anyway, what Father declares is that the Church first has her divine doctrine from which her moral teaching proceeds. They are the two unchanging and indestructible pillars upon which the Church stands (Faith and Morals). From these and upon these the customs of the people are formed. It is no surprise then that having already compromised doctrine under the previous Pontificates, a Pope emerges who now wishes to undermine the moral teaching. We can already see the effects these attacks on the pillars of divinely revealed truth are having on the customs of the people.

    And I’m not just talking about the Catholic faithful, I’m talking about the secular world as well. The Catholic Church, whether they admit it or not, kept the immoral at bay and kept the world sane. Once upon a time, right up to Vatican II in fact, the Church was so strong in her moral voice that even the most militant of secularists hesitated before raising her indignation. One word from the Pope and any semblance of immorality in law or in practice was immediately put down, such was the spiritual power of the Church and the respect that even non-Catholics and non-Christians had for her.

    It has only been with the advent of these doctrinally, now morally, dissenting Modernist Popes that the bold of this world have seized their opportunity and are spreading evil everywhere under the banner of their master Lucifer, the banner of “Pride”, calling it good. How true, then, is the adage that evil abounds because good men do nothing. Evil people are rejoicing over the Conciliar Popes, especially Pope Francis, because he has left the field clear for them to finally eradicate Christ and His divine law from the face of the earth. And the prelates who remain disapprovingly silent need not comfort themselves by their disapproval. Those who remain silent in the face of evil assist evil and are therefore as culpable as the perpetrators of evil. It’s one of the ways in which a Catholic can, says the Church’s teaching, participate in the sin(s) of another, by silent consent.

    What a mess! The only people who seem to be making their voices heard right now are lay Catholics who have no high office and privileged lifestyle to protect. But this has always been the case throughout history. Most, if not all, heresies that have attacked the Church throughout her 2000-year history have been instigated and spread by clerics and prelates. Only a handful of prelates and clerics ever openly opposed said heresies, a very small number in comparison with the numbers of lay faithful who recognised and resisted the evil. And so it is again today.

    In these times of Pope Francis’ moral relativism too many hanker for a return to the moral soundness of John Paul II and Benedict XVI. But these people forget, or rather choose to ignore, that it was under these Pontificates that the way was cleared for a morally relativist Pope. These former Pontiffs were doctrinal relativists, Popes who believed and taught doctrines opposed to the teaching Magisterium of the Church. Hardly a surprise then that the Faith, thus doctrinally compromised, has lead naturally to a Pope who compromises the moral teaching of the Church.

    We have seen for decades how the Catholic Faith has been transformed by post-Vatican II “Reformer” clergy into a strong semblance of Protestantism at parish and diocesan level. The Mass, Sacraments, teaching on sin, Heaven, Hell, etc. all having been watered down so that today two entire generations have no real knowledge of the Catholic Faith. So now the time is ripe for a Pope to introduce moral confusion into the mix and to propose, in his own populist way, that active homosexuals, the divorced and remarried, those living together in sinful unions, etc., be made part of the community of the faithful with all the rights that the others enjoy.

    It is the prophetic lament come true that Pius XII wrote of in relation to the Third Secret of Fatima when, speaking of the Church and those who seek to undermine her from within, he wrote: “…and that which is a divine thing will be turned into a human Church”.

    In the absence of any real challenge to this by the legitimate authorities in the Church who also see the decline, I hope this reflection of Fr. Frederick Faber, given at the London Oratory in 1861, might help to spur them into some real Catholic Militant action:

    “We must remember that if all the manifestly good men were on one side and all the manifestly bad men were on the other, there would be no danger of anyone, least of all the elect, being deceived by lying wonders. It is the good men, once good, we must hope good still, who are to do the work of Anti-Christ and so sadly to crucify the Lord afresh … Bear in mind this feature of the last days, that this deceitfulness arise from good men being on the wrong side.” (The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World by Father Denis Fahey, Regina Publications, Dublin, first printed in 1935, p. xi.)

    You are so right when you lament the silence of the hierarchy in response to questions of morality. I well remember the days when we regularly saw Cardinal Heenan on the news giving the Catholic position on questions of the day, and even Cardinal Hume had a respected voice. Then with Card. Murphy O’Connor we saw a man who appeared rather like a rabbit caught in the headlights! With the advent of Vincent Nichols, although I never liked him, I thought that at least we had a good communicator who was confident and able before the media. But guess what? The man seems to have nothing to say at all!! I cannot recall the last time any of our current hierarchy stood up for anything. Deafening silence on gay marriage, gender confusion etc etc.
    Now it is probably also true that the BBC no longer invite them to comment, after all any religious broadcasting is now very much diminished, but I am sure that these prelates have activepress spokesmen who would see to it that if they wanted to say anything then it would be heard. So have they just sunk into a comfortable apathy or is the truth that none of them care very much about truth and morality at all? Where is the role of the Shepherd? I think he has gone wandering off seduced by the wolves!

    This isn’t directed linked to Pope Francis, but o was livid when I saw this yesterday:

    These Celtic fans, the majority who whom will be Catholic, don’t have a clue! As a Celtic fan, I am disgusted. If you scroll down, it is shocking to see so many children at the event. To think people think nothing of exposing children to that filth! Shocking!

      That is shocking. I know loads of Celtic supporters, in my family and among friends. I wonder what they’ll think of this.

      I would disagree with you that this is not linked to Pope Francis. I think the LGBT + people have come out in the open so suddenly and spreading so fast, because even the Pope is not bothered, it’s all okay now. Even if it’s subconscious, I think he is to blame for this behaviour now being seen as a good thing.

        I’ve read your excellent comment over at the Evening Times, and posted one myself. Well, two actually, The first one went up under a username which I didn’t even know I had! Must have posted something years ago, but now they don’t allow usernames so that may be deleted. Anyway, I updated my details and re-posted under my own name, plus threw in another cheeky one for good measure.

        Tragic about Celtic, not that I’m a fan, I know nothing about football, but it does have Catholic roots, and is associated with Catholicism, so this is yet another scandal to add to the list.

        It would be good if the Bishops would at least speak out about this – but (you got it) don’t hold your breath.

        I have likewise been posting numerous comments at the Evening News. It will be interesting to see if they’re allowed to stand. Here’s an ideal opportunity for Archbishop Tartaglia to be a public example to all those “wishy-washy” Catholics he rightly talked about. Will His Grace do his duty, I wonder?

      I had not seen that article before, Petrus, but it is indeed dismaying. What would Brother Walfrid make of it? The tentacles of the LGBT lobby invade everywhere and I agree with you regarding the sight of innocent children being dragged along to the obnoxious “Pride” parade.

      Of course, while most Celtic fans may be Catholic they are only really culturally so. Very few are sincere Catholics – luckily, one of the sincere ones is my daughter’s Godfather – and it is certain that socialism is a far greater influence among the support than is Catholicism.

      PS – by the grace of God, I am an Aberdeen fan (a child of the 80s) and am quietly confident about ending Celtic’s unbeaten domestic record this year, especially when they have all those tiring Champions league fixtures to play 😉

    I think it is very interesting that the Passion of the Church is being accomplished through the promotion of a false version of charity – “mercy” – which is then applied in support of a complete perversion of charity, i.e. homosexual eros. There’s no question that Francis has surrounded himself with homosexuals; perhaps a reflection of the nature of the Jesuits, which, I suspect, has become little more than a private, leftist homosexual club.

    I’m not sure why God has allowed the the destruction of the Church to conclude in this particular manner, but perhaps it is a sign of the depth and breadth of His wrath.

    Pilate asked Our Lord, “What is truth?’ since he apparently did not know. I’d say Francis is in the same boat as Pilate, but even worse, since he doesn’t know what love is either.

      RCA Victor,

      You are right about Francis being like Pilate – I totally agree. This pope doesn’t know what the truth is, just like Pilate. I keep asking myself how this is ever going to be put right. Right now, it looks impossible.

    I’ll just add a little bit…perhaps as a way of saying that I do pop round to this site from time to time. I used to begin my daily petitions to Our Lord by pleading for a son of mine. I have had to move that petition down the list, as it were. I now begin by begging Our Lord to correct Pope Francis and to stop him from being the cause of so much division within the Church.
    I would like also to comment on reading above in what Athanasius writes, that I had no idea that Pope St. John Paul II wrote that he did not believe that the Holy Spirit proceeded from the Father and the Son. Rather, he claimed that the Holy Spirit proceeded only from the Father! That shocked me! It is the position taken by the Orthodox and they are indeed wrong in so doing. We proclaim in the Nicene Creed that we believe that the Holy Spirit proceeded from both the Father and the Son. I spent quite some time turning over in my prayers and in my reasoning how it is that there are three real distinct persons in the one Being that is God. My reasoning drove me to that conclusion that the Holy Spirit just has to proceed from the Father and the Son. I am not claiming any special revelation but I just had to get to the bottom of the mystery of The Holy Trinity in so far as my human mind could possibly understand it. In the end, I was satisfied!

    Seeing all that stuff about the Pope and homosexuals in one article was sobering. It’s just dreadful to know that he is so openly supporting the LGBT agenda. I can’t believe it, it’s so shocking. Yet when you speak to Catholics who are older and presumably not online, they don’t seem to know anything, they think Pope Francis is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Our Lady of Fatima will surely act at some point in her centenary year, to put an end to all these scandals caused by Pope Francis.

    To answer Jean-Pierre Dickes’ headline question, no, Pope Francis does not lead us to “gay” Church. That’s because the Church was already there when he was elevated: the clergy is infested with homosexuals at every level; the Novus Ordo liturgy is effeminate, wishy-washy and politically correct (i.e. spineless); the clergy have turned to social work instead of saving souls (which is a frequent career destination for homosexuals, it makes them feel better about themselves) and most Catholics are apparently either indifferent to this, or approve of it!

    The only thing Francis has done is to take the wraps off this sordid mess for everyone to see, bring it to prominence, and get the full smell of the sheep. Moreover, Francis is not a leader, he is a dictatorial panderer to the sick ways of the world, and the demonic agenda of the United Nations.

    It becomes difficult to criticize the secular Government and all of those institutions which now subscribe to the new immorality;MSM, universities, public bodies, local government, NHS, police, have all not merely acceded to political correctness but have shown themselves to be openly and vehemently supportive.
    This is not new. This is a process that started decades ago. Our Catholic bishops who should have been firm in their opposition, were not. They sat down to dinner with the agents of these changes and agreed accommodations.
    The most destructive betrayal was that involving Catholic schools. The Bishops did nothing to resist ther opening of Catholic schools to pupils of other denominations. The hijab is now more common in Catholic schools than the Cross.
    For an ordinary person to speak up against these things, is to invite prosecution. How would it be if a Bishop were asked to give evidence in such a case? I have little doubt that there is not one Bishop in Scotland prepared to defend orthodoxy from the witness box. The Protestants use the word “witness” in respect of professing faith. I suspect that the word is one that would send a Catholic Bishop into hiding.

      Well said – every word. You are spot on, and it gives me no pleasure to say so.

      Watching the awesome crowds in America at the sight of the eclipse yesterday, brought to mind the miracle of the sun at Fatima and I can’t help wondering if we are going to experience another visit from Heaven in this centenary of that October miracle. Wouldn’t be surprised.

      Andrew Paterson,

      I completely agree with you. The bishops are keeping silent when they should be speaking out. I believe Our Lady prophesied this would happen when she appeared to Mother Mariana at Quito and warned that marriage would be under attack “and the one who should speak out will fall silent” – something like that. It’s just astounding to see it all come true, three centuries later.

    This is an interesting article from the SSPX about Fr Aiden Nichols’ suggestion that Canon Law now incorporate a procedure for calling to order a pope who perpetrates error. I’m glad to see the Society express a “reservation” about this, since it could be used by dissenters every time a pontiff re-affirms Catholic teaching on morality. However, some such change to Canon Law, to ensure proper teaching about the limits of papal authority, is definitely necessary, in my opinion.
