Panic! Pope Francis Calls Synod To Discuss Church Teachings on the Family

This morning the Vatican announced that Pope Francis is calling the third “Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops”, which will convene a year from now, in order to discuss ““The pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelisation”.  “Why should we panic?”, do you ask?  The answer is simple.  Pope Francis has made more liberal statements in the past few weeks than any pope in history, and has displayed numerous ideas that are questionable–to put it kindly, among them the recent comment in which he said that the Church should stop focusing on social issues.  There is clear cause for alarm here.  Pope Francis is the epitome of the “Spirit of Vatican II”, which is obsessed with not offending anybody (losing tens of thousands of souls in the process).  Word from Rome is that the synod will focus on the church’s position on divorce and the eligibility of remarried couples to receive communion.  What could possibly go wrong?

  1. >”Just recently, when discussing the sodomites, Pope Francis asked, “Who am I to judge?”.

    Interesting, I presume he is okay with judging who can have the sacraments etc. . And it is scheduled for a year from now., Does that give any signal about the importance/priority? Well.

    • I just meant that a lot happens in a year, (i.e. the speed at which this lunacy has taken off — in public opinion) And is that part of the strategy? (rhetorical)

  2. Well, it does take some time to plan such an event. And the fact that it is happening so early in the pontificate signals that this is high on Pope Heretic The Firsts’s “To-Do” List
