Cardinal Kasper fine tuned his practice of deception.
Here's the audio of Cardinal Kasper saying it.
Grandpa...what big teeth you have!
Before I get to the dust up over Pope Francis attempt to bury the evidence that discloses what he is doing to Christ's Church and His people, I wanted to point out Cardinal Shonborn's revelation of what Pope Francis thinks.
He said what Pope Francis is doing at the synod a bit like the tension between Mommies and Daddies.
While Mommies will tell you its too dangerous when you shack up with your sexual lover, Daddies will tell you to go ahead, be not afraid.
When you want to have sex outside of marriage, the role of Christ's Church is to say positive things to encourage you on your sojourn.
If we knew this was Pope Francis theme on the role of the Church to help Catholic families, packages of condoms with positive messages would have made fun chachkies.
"If you like your lover, you can keep your lover"
"Don't make a judgment about what you're doing - Be not afraid"
"Be careful. Condoms for Saints. Full stop."
Think of the positives. Condoms will help the world fight Ebola.
Speaking of which, while the rest of the world googles 'Ebola' every few hours, we are googling "synod"!
I can pretty much come up with a positive side of everything.
If we steal a car, we'll have wheels to go to beautiful places.
If we kill our unborn children, we'll save a boatload of money -- why, we can even give to the Cardinal's appeal.
If we give free crack to the junior high kids, maybe they won't shoot heroin.
Give us a break.
Pope Francis sat through the synod session, once again looking like an innocent bystander. Until Cardinal Baldisseri announced Pope Francis decision that small group summaries would be buried.
A big scuffle ensued.
The Secretary of the Synod, Card. Balidisseri, was watching the Pope, as if in search of advice and lights, and the Pope remained silent and very serious...
This in full view of the Pope, who seems not to have shown his hand, but also who seems not to have been pleased at what was going on....
Apparently, Card. Pell was the first one to rise up against Card. Baldisseri. When Baldisseri made the announcement, Card. Pell took the floor and said that the reports had to be published and that they were tired of the manipulation.
From that point, the bishops also rose up. When Baldisseri repeated his position, he was effectively shouted down.
At that point, Card. Baldisseri turned to the Pope and got the nod to publish.
I am still flabbergasted that a Pope would misuse his authority to recruit heretics to filibuster Church teaching and take a vote on producing a document with talking points on how to turn the mission of Christ's Church into a institution that teaches cohabitation, contraception homosexual sex is positive and good.
I just can't get over how absolutely insidious it all is, how quiet he was about his intention to present and vote on distributing these perverted convictions to Christ's lambs.

Cardinal Burke's group, as expected, straightened the crooked paths.
For example, where the Relatio appeared to be suggesting that sex outside of marriage may be permissible, or that cohabitation may be permissible, we have attempted to show why such lifestyles do not lead to human fulfillment. At the same time, we want to acknowledge that there are seeds of truth and goodness found in the persons involved, and through dedicated pastoral care these can be appreciated and developed. We believe that if we imply that certain life-styles are acceptable, then concerned and worried parents could very easily say “Why are we trying so hard to encourage our sons and daughters to live the Gospel and embrace Church teaching?”
A number of parents will respond by deciding the Pope has robbed the teachings of the Church of their moral authority and consequently nothing they say would have any effect. When their children tell them they want to move in with their girlfriend - last month, they would have defended Church teaching, this month, the children will move in without the opportunity to hear what every Catholic parent would tell them.
But I actually think the consequences of this are much, much worse.
Priests will not bother to contradict the Pope's contradictions of Church teaching. The Pope has robbed them of any efficacy.
I believe the most damaging consequence will happen - and has already happened - in families like ours.
Parents who will encourage our sons and daughters to embrace Church teaching even when the Pope contradicts it. In families like ours, our children stood a chance of resisting the temptation. Their peers and the community had a witness on how two young people faithfully fulfill God's Covenant. We'll never give up - but last month, our children would followed Church teaching, this month, the children will inform us of Pope Francis index of positives in shacking up - and go right ahead and do it.
He's robbed us all. It is Grand larceny.
