Vatican Finally Had Courage For Ideological Struggle: No Bless For Same-Sex Marriages

Pope Francis

The Vatican proclaimed that the Roman Catholic Church will not bless same-sex marriages. Pope Francis, who has been previously viewed with optimism by LGBTQ groups due to his support to their members, has apparently changed his point of view and approved the note which says that God “does not and cannot bless sin.”

“The blessing of homosexual unions cannot be considered licit,” the Vatican’s top doctrinal office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, wrote in the statement.

The Vatican pointed out that marriage is an inseparable union of a man and a woman that is aimed at the birth of a new life. Therefore, it is not licit to bless a relationship that involves sexual activity outstanding of the definition of marriage.

At the same time, it was noted that such a decision is equal to discrimination of LGBTQ groups, and gays, lesbians, queers etc may receive a blessing if they follow Church teaching. The rejection of same-sex marriages was presented as a reminder of the main essence of warship.

It proves that the Roman Catholic Church is now between the rock and hard place due to many-years dispute on the position of the Church towards LGBT. The judgment came in response to numerous questions raised by pastors and parishes that sought to make the catholic religion more inclusive of gay couples.

On the one hand, Pope Francis, in his effort to make the Catholic Church more inclusive, claimed that same-sex and other nontraditional couples need a “civil union law”. On the other hand, such a claim was lately classified as his personal opinion but not an official position of the Church.

It seems that for the first first time in recent years, the Roman Catholic Church has made a move in order to preserve some traditional values against the growing neo-liberal ideological threat. Probably, in near future it could take a role of an outpost for at least basic conservative social norms in the Catholic world.

Meanwhile, the Russian Orthodox Church has clearly defined its position: it does not and will never recognize same-sex marriages. The LGBTQ representatives as well as heretics can not be blessed. The Orthodox Church remains completely independent of any social movements and changes. Its allegiance to doctrinal beliefs and basic social pillars make it the last hope of ideological rescue for millions of adepts.

This is going to piss off Cardinal Reinhard Marx and other liberals in the Catholic church. There is a war being waged for the soul of the church. I predict Francis will suffer for changing his mind.

Thanks I hate the pope

Not Vatican.. Statement was made by the “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith”
You can bet that if it was up to a pope – there would be no such statement..

It looks as another peace of puzzle in the struggle that have started inside catholic church (at least visibly) in 2013 by stepping down by Benedict XIV and electing Francis..

[26] The fairies are not to be seized on, and brought to answer for the hurt they do. So also the ecclesiastics vanish away from the tribunals of civil justice.

[27] The ecclesiastics take from young men the use of reason, by certain charms compounded of metaphysics, and miracles, and traditions, and abused Scripture, whereby they are good for nothing else but to execute what they command them. The fairies likewise are said to take young children out of their cradles, and to change them into natural fools, which common people do therefore call elves, and are apt to mischief.

[29] When the fairies are displeased with anybody, they are said to send their elves to pinch them. The ecclesiastics, when they are displeased with any civil state, make also their elves, that is, superstitious, enchanted subjects, to pinch their princes, by preaching sedition; or one prince, enchanted with promises, to pinch another.

[30] The fairies marry not; but there be amongst them incubi that have copulation with flesh and blood. The priests also marry not.

This Argentinian is the true black pope. He took part in the complot to remove the German pope and destruct the Catholic Church from inside. Behind this Argentinian are the jews and mafia that run the world.

Muhammed and some Pope invented windows, so they could look in and check up and maybe check in.

They always do the naughty stuff with no light on, so none can see who is with who too. comment image comment image

Catholicism is dying, deservedly so, and if this leads to more people turning away from the Catholic Church, I see nothing wrong with that.
