The Holy Father further claims the Church doesn't have any binding teachings, just ideals.
Church teachings are just suggestions we should live to the extent we are able?
What exactly does 'able' mean?
If an individual sees some eye candy in the liquor store they are able to say to themselves "I'm not able to keep the Commandments today."?
If the woman conceives a child from the hook up, the Deposit of Faith that explains the Commandments is not a resource from which judgments should be made about the meaning of 'able'?
So much for the Magnificat.
I'm just going to leave this here:
"It would be a very serious error to conclude... that the Church's teaching is essentially only an 'ideal' which must then be adapted, proportioned, graduated to the so-called concrete possibilities of man, according to a 'balancing of the goods in question'...”
---Pope St. John Paul II, Encyclical Letter, Veritatis Splendor
The Holy Father then goes on to say that Catholics who use Church teaching for judgments are heretics.
Wouldn't you love to know why the Holy Father finds the fiat of the Holy Family so insidious?
Like Herod, he's passed out the swords and given orders to slay the children of Israel. As they wreak havoc in every home and family, he's sulking about the people who have fled to take shelter.
Seriously, this is completely out of control.
