PopeWatch: Adam and Eve

Pope Francis states the obvious and receives anger for doing so:

 

Pope Francis on Saturday denounced the use of the word “family” to refer to unions that do not consist of a man and a woman, sparking condemnation from homosexual activists, who noted the mixed signals that Francis has sent regarding LGBT issues during his pontificate.

In extemporaneous remarks to a delegation of Italy’s Forum of Family Associations, Francis said that it “hurts” to speak of the fact that the word “family” is being used apart from the definition of traditional marriage.

“Then today – it hurts to say this – we talk about ‘diversified’ families: different types of families,” said Francis.

“Yes, it is true that the word ‘family’ is an analogical word, because we speak of the ‘family’ of the stars, the ‘families’ of the trees, the ‘families’ of the animals … it is an analogical word. But the human family as an image of God, man and woman, is only one. It is only one,” the pontiff said.

 

Go here to read the rest.  What insane times in which we live when it is controversial for a Pope to say that the building blocks of a human family are a man and a woman.

  1. We just voted in SSM in Australia after a non-compulsory nation wide referendum. I still don’t understand how it got through. If you think the world has gone insane you are right. If you have young children and have watched Sesame Street lately, you will be schooled in “the different type of families there are…Mum and Dad, Dad and Dad, Mum and Mum, Mum on her own, Mum and Mum and gay friend Dad..Dad and dog.” I’m waiting for the day Mum and plant come under the definition of a “family”. Or even better Daddy Mohammad and his 4 wives and 35 kids, and unemployment benefits.

    Im happy Pope Francis stayed the obvious.

  2. St.Sr. Lucia- Included in her letter was this startling statement:

    The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.

    However, Sr. Lucia also offered words of encouragement to Cardinal Caffarra, who had just stepped into the front ranks of this battle, adding: Don’t be afraid, because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue.

    Yes. Game on Satan!
    You loose in the end so let’s get ready tooooo rummmmmmbbble. (Couldn’t help myself, after all, a little girl of 15 named Mary two thousand and some years ago said Yes to God and sealed the fate of Satan.)

    Let’s double our prayers and end this thing!

  3. God defines the first family: Father, Son and the Love between them. Infinite, without beginning and without end. God defined the first family of man, made in the image and likeness of God: Adam and Eve. God defined the first marriage and granted the power of procreation to man. Man is the glory of God: “Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
    God reinforced His truth in the Fourth and Sixth Commandments: Honor thy father and mother that thou shall be long lived upon the face of the earth. Thou shalt not commit adultery. What is adulterated is no longer what it is but it is what it is not. Adultery is a lie about marriage. It is a fraud.
    Sodomy is the abuse of human dignity. Even the sodomites know this. Satan knows this and this is the reason Satan uses sodomy to humiliate man. Sodomy is not freedom. Sodomy is the hell for sodomites. Sin is its own punishment.
    If there were no Satan, sodomy would still be the end of mankind. The sodomites usurp parenthood, marriage and love to impose atheism, the revolution against perfect Love. Sodomy is the revolution of pride over Justice that is, giving to God the worship of obedience in Justice. Sodomy is the revolution of the ugly over the Beatific Vision.

  4. It’s unthinkable that sodomy and love could be intertwined. Sodomy and lust.
    Sodomy and domination. Sodomy and self-hate. These are completely intertwined but love, never. Sodomy can not be love. It is only a virtual reality, wishful thinking at best for the sodomites who glory in their nightmare. A nightmarish landscape void of color or life. A living hell. Southern Decadence was halted years ago due to a hurricane. Nature is repulsed at sodomy. I’m predicting more storms on the horizon.

  5. Love is willing the good of the other. Author unknown. Helping one’s good buddy into hell is not love.
    One Consolata missionary I once knew, let us call him Father Mario was asked why he became a priest. Red cheeked and lovely, he responded” All of the women were so beautiful, I could not choose one. So, I became a priest

  6. “All of the women were so beautiful, I could not choose one. So, I became a priest.”

    Beautiful Mary.
    What a great realization.
    Thanks for sharing.
