The conclusion of our stripped down look at Amoris Laetitia with some commentary by PopeWatch:
301. People living in shack ups, the Pope refers to them as “irregular unions”, can’t simply be considered to be living in mortal sin because of possible mitigating factors. (When it comes to sin the human mind can come up with infinite excuses for such conduct. The Church never bought into that, except as a possible lessening of the penance imposed in the confessional. Pope Francis takes this aspect of the priest-penitent relationship and uses it to argue that mortal sin is not mortal sin. He clearly indicates that he is not referencing as a mitigating factor ignorance that what is being done is sinful, which would be the only legitimate factor which would cause someone not to be in a state of sin in such an adulterous marriage.)
302. More of this rubbish.
303. Personal conscience uber alles.
304. Rules are sometimes not rules for the individuals involved. (A rather confused paragraph. Arguing that white is really black tends to be a fairly complicated exercise.)
305. “For this reason, a pastor cannot feel that it is enough simply to apply moral laws to those living in “irregular” situations, as if they were stones to throw at people’s lives. This would be speak the closed heart of one used to hiding behind the Church’s teachings, “sitting on the chair of Moses and judging at times with superiority and superficiality difficult cases and wounded families.” (Note the scare quotes around irregular when referring to people in adulterous unions. The Pope argues like a juvenile in many cases. This passage obviously tells priests that if they fail to give communion to people living in shack ups in mortal sin, they do so at their jeopardy. This Pope will make the priests of our Church co-conspirators with him in ignoring the clear command of Christ.)
306. The paragraph with the infamous footnote 351, the same footnote that the Pope claims to have forgotten about, which clearly allows the granting of communion to people living in mortal sin.
307. The Pope claims not to be doing what he is clearly doing.
308. Ignore paragraph 307-Mercy uber alles is the order of the day.
309. Year of Mercy. (I think future Church historians may have other terms for this wretched year.)
310. If you don’t buy into all this you probably aren’t a child of God. (More juvenile bullying by the Pope.)
311. People who don’t buy into this are probably heretics.
312. Priests-you got the message didn’t you?
