A very strange interview in which he also says it doesn't pose a threat to the faith and he doesn't like the idea of asking the Pope what in God's Name he is talking about.
He's got to be pulling our leg.
Even if he doesn't have the backbone to publicly admit the process was hijacked and manipulated, the exhortation was intentionally muddled so the Holy Father could grant license to the beloved heresies he surrounded the circus with, it is simply not possible to take the position there is faithfulness and clarity in Amoris Laetitia.
The man is in charge of the CDF and therefore knows how the perverted instrument has been declared as changing in practice withholding reception of the Eucharist when the communicant is living a life of unrepentant adultery.
The Holy Father was asked directly whether Amoris Laetitia changed practice and he said "yes and no", which is precisely what is happening. Yes, some bishops changed practice and no, other bishops did not change practice.
The document was intentionally written so that some bishops could say yes to change practice while others would continue to say no. That was the the goal. People who in good faith have produced something that is being misinterpreted , and those interpretations are being used to lead people into believing mortal sin is approved under some circumstances would immediately correct those misinterpretations. We would not have to beg him to do so and he would not respond to our petitions with silence and slander.
It stands to reason, not to mention common sense, that if the Holy Father's intentions were to uphold Church teaching and practice, the documents and practice were already endowed to the Deposit of Faith by 2000 years of theologians and Popes that preceded him. That is what we were doing.
Consequently, Pope Francis wouldn't need to call upon the heretics and organized a poop show calling for changes.
Pope Francis would not have expressed his support for Kasper's proposal, called it good theology and asked his see assembled at the Synod to digest virtuous sodomy and adultery as updated practices in the family.
The Holy Father would not have deliberately instructed rejected paragraphs 52, 53 and 55 be inserted in the Relatio.
The German Cardinals would not have revealed the Pope worked with them behind the scenes to bring about these changes to practice which they have already implemented.
Pope Francis would not have written his letter to Argentine Bishops praising their guidelines for implementing acceptance of sexually active unmarried couples to the Holy Eucharist and said there "could be no other interpretation" of his motives and intentions.
We would have missed out on the Holy Father's asshattery on every interview on a plane ride.
We would not have Pope Francis compendium of insults to Catholics who tried to teach their children the fiat of living every day in a state of Grace while living in a see of heretical priests who spent their vocations persuading them the Deposit of Faith is outdated and a false witness to the unconditional love of Christ.
I would not have had the pleasure of hearing a homily a few weeks back, telling us of the new paradigm shift, how free we are to commit sins without remorse or guilt and how the absolution of sin in the Sacrament of Confession is a thing of the past.
My family would not have come across a "Mr & Mr" picture frame being sold at a Catholic Shrine and hear one of my own children explain Pope Francis approves of gay marriage.
We all would have missed out on the venomous accusation that our outreach to the Holy Father, to ask him to clarify the confusion HE is sowing, is received by him as diabolical.
We are now treated to the head of the CDF saying the Pope is doctrinally clear, there is no threat to salvation and he "doesn't like" efforts asking the Pope to undo the damage he is doing and confirm doctrine?
Dear Cardinal Muller:
What is his burden in this request?
Isn't this his job?
Do you expect us to believe that as head of the CDF, you are ignorant of the catastrophic confusion being sown by malformed Cardinals and priests and the damage it is doing to PEOPLE we love?
Forgive me, but I find that hard to believe.
This is the trial balloon for "pastoral edicts" that tell pastors the Deposit of Faith can be disconnected from every parish as they wish. He is fracturing the Church into Congregationalism. His hand-picked spokesperson for the Synod, Cardinal Kasper, said this was the beginning of the end of a Church as the arbiter of Truth. They are decapitating the Head of Christ as the arbiter of Truth and replacing it with malformed consciences in a state of mortal sin.
Listen, you can all pretend you have no idea what we are talking about but I am here to remind you that we were safer when you were all pretending you couldn't see the pedophiles.
Stop lying to us.
Put a lid on it.
Get over yourselves and answer the dubia.
You are not in a contest with a handful of faithful Cardinals. You have waged war against the hand that rocks the cradle. You are on the losing team because you do not have the truth on your side.
Good day to you sirs!
