I am puzzled by practicing Catholics who are saying the final document affirmed Church teaching.
I have no idea what they are talking about.
The document clearly gives pastors the erroneous notion they can acknowledge repetitious mortal sin and obstruct them from absolution and salvation--and give witness to children that Church teaching is subject to their own personal judgments.
I further observed the Pope telling us his use of heretics, his sneakiness and deception, his institution of. 30 day annulment, and the farce of this final document obstructing our people from salvation was his action to strengthen the indissolubility of the Sacrament of Marriage.
It is the biggest bold-faced lie I have ever experienced from an ordained man.
Claiming this insidious deception was the victorious affirmation of Church teaching is like Charlie Sheen holding a crack pipe between his teeth and his arms around two whores and saying "winning!!"
I have not checked news this morning, but I certainly hope faithful bishops have the spinal fortitude to call out the lie and liars.
Worthy is the Lamb.
