That's what the author of this article claims and I couldn't agree more.
"...Ireland will be looking at a new church, humbled in the aftermath of revelations of child sex-abuse but determined to stay relevant by charting a new course, one that some say is modeled on Pope Francis’ efforts to revitalize worldwide Catholicism..."
There's a new marketing plan to damage control ordaining and protecting pedophiles: Shepherding Catholics to have same sex.
How the Catholic Church won friends and influenced people through evangelizing the virtue of clapping fornication.
Let's be honest. It has resulted in an awful lot of people liking Pope Francis and it certainly has his picture published on the cover of magazines at least as often as Bruce Jenner.
However, those of us who see and understand the consequences of this marketing plan keep responding with a valuable lesson we learned as children about deception - Gradmmmmmmaaaaa, what big teeth you have!!!
Here's a quote from a wolf that doesn't really capture the fragrance of Pope Francis' papacy:
“[Francis] is a man who speaks about ordinary things: about mercy, about love, fun, smiling. Not about condemning this or that."
But that is simply not true, is it.
The Holy Father condemns mothers who risk the environment with their openness to life. He condemns moral theology of the Church. He condemns right judgment. He condemns 2000 years of Popes before him. He condemned people who recite the Creed. He condemns Catholics who fled to Summorum Pontificum to protect their children from the disordered priests he refuses to rightly order and shepherd.
There's a mother list of condemnations.
With an entire country full of Irish people at risk of being led by the nose into an abyss, I kept refreshing my browser this week to see if Pope Francis would say something to "pastor" them into a rightly order conscience. The situation is an indictment of the scores of ordained homosexuals who have led his people into moral chaos and temptation.
With all the minutia he spends his time commenting upon, one would think an entire country full of souls and the generations that will follow would be worth at attempt to save.
But he and his administration focused on litter and smog.
A little fresh air while committing adultery will keep Catholics on the road to salvation, that's what I always say.
I will spare you my own sentiments about the Holy Father's silence as my people walk like zombies into a devil's trap, and my disgust with his priority of worldly intellectual debates about the nonexistent 'global warming'.
I also found the above quote interesting because it resonates with something Pope Francis said earlier this week which instructed bishops not to catechize Catholics, just be a 'pastor' to them.
Pope Francis has told bishops to act more like pastors than “pilots” telling the faithful what to do.
He seems to be confusing the role of a physician of souls with the jugglers and clowns at Barnum and Bailey's circus.
What good is a 'pastor' who won't show you the right path to salvation?
Pastors like that we will meet in hell.
At the time of writing of this post, the result of the referendum isn't in. Please continue to keep the ignorant, uncatechized and demoralized Catholics of Ireland in your prayers.
The referendum passed.
Thank you Pope Francis for the two years of instructing the woman at the well about smiling and smog while appointing Cardinal Marx and Cardinal Kasper to testify to her the allegation you perceive virtue in same sex and giving her the witness of Rev Timothy Radcliffe to blaspheme the Sacred Eucharist as sodomy.
That really helped us all out.
As you appoint heretics and the devil is misleads your people with unprecedented power, perhaps you could next pastor them into the ancient debate about the earth being flat.
The ridiculousness is a gift that keeps on giving.
All I can think of at this moment are words from Mother Teresa of Calcutta:
“We the willing,
led by the unknowing,
are doing the impossible for the ungrateful.
We have done so much,
with so little,
for so long,
we are now qualified to do anything, with nothing.”
