It gives us all a special feeling to come to terms with the reality that Pope Francis thinks the "theology" of Cardinal Marx is the path to salvation.
The president of the German Bishops’ Conference has declared that, in his view, Catholic priests can conduct blessing ceremonies for homosexual couples.
Cardinal Reinhard Marx told the Bavarian State Broadcasting’s radio service that “there can be no rules” about this question. Rather, the decision of whether a homosexual union should receive the Church’s blessing should be up to “a priest or pastoral worker” and made in each individual case, the German prelate stated.
Why single out one? Why not develop a whole set of rituals to "bless" breaking the Sixth Commandment?
Shouldn't the Church have a ritual to 'bless' extramarital affairs?
What about a 'blessing' for masturbation?
It's hard to believe the Church would enable such a spiritual predator, but this is our reality. And of course he credits his enabler:
Describing this as a “fundamental orientation” emphasized by Pope Francis, Marx called for the Church to take “the situation of the individual, ... their life-story, their biography, ... their relationships” more seriously and accompany them, as individuals accordingly.
What would stop a person who would enable the destruction of tens of thousands of immortal souls from enabling a pedophile? As destructive and horrifying as enabling a pedophile, from the mystical perspective, the latter is much less of a crime against human persons. As Christ warned us, people who do things to our bodies are not to be feared - a destroyer of immortal souls is far more dangerous.
It is surreal the counterfeit church has risen to the Chair of Peter.
I wish somebody would put a private detective on Marx and get to the root of his poisonous fruit. I really do.
O Lord, watch over your household with constant loving care. Let your protection forever shield those who place their trust solely upon the hope of your heavenly grace. Through our Lord.
