Pope Francis softens the Church's stance on homosexuality. Read more:

The future of the Catholic Church has been fixed and is described Jude 4 to 7:

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

At the end of last year we had 2013 Dec 28 – The Catholic Church – the community of gays and today there are reports that indicate that the next step is taken.

Last year the leadership of the Catholic Church was taken over by the homosexuals and this year this new leadership is transforming the entire organization into a homosexual community.

I now bring extracts from reports:

 

Catholic Synod: Cardinal 'demoted' by Pope Francis

A leading American cardinal has told BuzzFeed that he is to be demoted from his position running the Catholic Church justice system.

Cardinal Raymond Burke is a staunch critic of Pope Francis' moves to soften the Church's stance on homosexuality.

Pope Francis is said to be more relaxed about homosexuality than his predecessors

The report, which was written by more than 200 bishops, said homosexuals had "gifts and qualities to offer", and used more welcoming language when discussing homosexuality and its place in the Church.

Although it does not challenge the Church's stance on gay marriage, the document was praised by liberal clergymen and activists.

However, it was also criticised by more traditional and conservative Church figures who rejected it.

Cardinal Burke was among the most publicly critical of the bishops involved in the discussions.

For weeks, there had been rumours that the Pope would demote him.

 

The English-speaking working groups were among the most critical. The one headed by Cardinal Wilfred Fox Napier of South Africa complained about the translation of the draft report and used the new "providing for" homosexuals language of the revised English translation, suggesting that he or someone in his group might have requested the change.

On Thursday, Francis added Napier, as well as an Australian bishop, to the drafting committee that will compose the final document. It was widely noticed that Francis' initial appointees were largely progressives whom he named after conservatives were elected to head the working groups proposing the amendments.

African bishops, who are among the most conservative on family issues, were not included in his initial picks.

 

The area of the subject homosexuality seems particularly controversial, which Joseph Ratzinger still denounced as "anomaly". Now the synod gives a more conciliatory keynote: gays and lesbians can enrich the church. Almost a complete page the Corriere della Sera devotes to an interview with Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who reports appreciatively about a homosexual pair in Vienna whose mutual help with sickness has been "sacrificing and Christian". "Those are things deserving recognition."

The front of the conservatives most of all take offence with sections 50 to 52 in the report, which support an opening with homosexuals. It is led by five cardinals, who had published a book with the clear title Remaining in the Truth of Christ a few days before the synod. In opposition to the pope they hold the opinion that the church "is only indebted to the truth of God. "

The synod is just thought to be a preparation for a still larger gathering in autumn 2015.But also then the ultra-conservative minority will resist in vain the shown way by the pope.
