Well, this is unsurprising:
An Argentinian religious sister acclaimed for her work against the trafficking and exploitation of children has said Pope Francis told her responsible parenthood requires contraceptives in some cases.
This, despite the Church’s constant teaching that the use of artificial contraception is always intrinsically evil.
In an interview on Tuesday with the Argentinian radio program Crónica Anunciada, Carmelite missionary sister Martha Pelloni said Pope Francis “told me three words” about the need for responsible parenthood among poor rural women: “condoms, transitory, and reversible.”
The radio interview covered poverty rates, drug trafficking and the decriminalization of abortion in Argentina.
Sr. Pelloni, who is opposed to abortion, said the Pope told her various forms of contraception could be permissible to prevent poor women from choosing abortion. She included condoms, “a diaphragm, and as a last resort, which is what we advise for rural women that we serve, because I have a foundation for the peasantry, tubal ligation.”
Go here to read the rest. PopeWatch begins to suspect that either Pope Francis has a terrible problem with being misquoted, or he is simply a heretic. Useless Cardinals, where art thou?
