Such was the gist of his "intervention" this past Wednesday. To complete the heretical slop, he also stated that contraception within marriage should be liberalized "to make more room for conscience". In other words, the clear teachings of Jesus Christ are to be subordinated to the demands of warped consciences. I saw this news on Church Militant's site and left the following comment. It is self-explanatory, but knowing CM's reluctance to criticize the doings and sayings of Pope Francis, here's hoping that the comment remains and that they start acknowledging the proverbial "elephant in the living room". The comment is "If Marx is allowed to remain in his various Church-related roles after this proposal of immorality and heresy, we need to acknowledge that Pope Francis approves of Marx's antics and perhaps even is applauding them. Let us cease this fear of stating these simple truths, shall we?"
Meanwhile, the bishops from Poland and Africa are having nothing to do with Marx's antics. Toronto Catholic Witness relates that Archbishop Gadecki refutes the idea of "being pastoral" and he has spoken in the name of all the Polish bishops. Michael Hichborn of Lepanto Institute asks why such matters of settled doctrine are even being discussed and then answers the question; they are being discussed because Marx et al want to unsettle these doctrines.
We've had de facto schism for some time now. This sin-nod may well formalize that reality.
