No kidding. Can you believe this really news?
I wonder if the coven is still 'studying' whether women can be ordained as deacons?
One charade after another. Such a colossal waste of time.
Instead of handing out Church teaching on why women can never be ordained, and explaining that the diaconate requires an ordination, and therefore women will never be deacons, the Holy Father makes believe the question is open, convenes a committee of buffoons willing to give up years of precious time loving family and friends to play a game of rope-a-dope with people who are deceiving them. That is my idea of hell.
I don't see good will in their endless game of stringing people along. I came across a heartbreaking thread on Facebook yesterday discussing the latest "God made you gay" sophistry. A gay man was convinced Pope Francis believes God is the creator of homosexuality and therefore the disordered use of God's gift of human sexuality doesn't lead to hell. Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur.
Deception cripples the brain. The idea that there are people out there who cannot process the diaconate requires ordination and therefore women will never be ordained, is astonishing. Their brain deliberately puts the brakes on to prevent it from crashing into truth. They can't see beyond the deception.
I've always been a person who uses my brain to think. That's what saved me from being sucked into the rabbit hole.
For the life of me, I cannot fathom why a person wouldn't carry the thought through, that if the Pope is suggesting God creates disordered use of sexuality, then he created the victims pedophile, and his words are applicable to pedophilia: "You have to be happy with who you are. God made you this way and loves you this way, and the pope loves you this way.”
The same flaw in critical thinking would be applicable to liars, mass murderers and serial rapists.
Ergo, coming full circle with your brain, it is not possible for God to be the creator of homosexuality. That would be vicious. God endowed us with free will. Our transgressions against Divine Law are our own creation.
Of course God loves us all, in spite of the things we do and say that violate and harm other people. He loves us in the same way a parent loves a child, even when that child is unruly and undisciplined.
Just as parental love is incapable of saving their children from the consequences of committing a crime, God's love doesn't absolve us from the consequences of committing mortal sin.
God's love made only forgiveness available. Forgiveness requires contrition, a promise to avoid not only the sin, but anything and anyone who would cause us to sin, and the Sacramental absolution of Reconciliation.
If Mr. Cruz is giving an accurate depiction of what the Holy Father said and did not say to convey the idea that God loves and created his sexual disorder with the intention that its a gift he should act upon, he's been lied to, by commission and omission.
Nothing the pope says or doesn't say, does or doesn't do changes that reality.
