Francis Changes Catechism - Believes That The Church Was Wrong Until He Came

Pope Francis has attempted to "change" the Catechism to definitively oppose the death penalty.

Vatican.va (August 2) published a new text declaring that “the Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel” that the death penalty is “inadmissible” in all cases. There is no evidence that the Gospel deems the death penalty to be inadmissible as such.

Rom 13,1-7 definitely recognises the power of the government to institute capital punishment where appropriate.

Francis contradicts the teaching of the Bible and the Church that the death penalty is in itself morally legitimate, independently from the question of whether, in a concrete situation, it is practically opportune to perform it.

In an explanatory letter, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, calls the wrong teaching an “authentic development" of doctrine that is allegedly "not in contradiction with the prior teachings of the Magisterium.”

This is another example of why Francis pontificate cannot be taken seriously.

He does not contradict the Church as the Church now says something new and better in light of a better understanding of Love and of the dignity of the human person.
DefendTruth efectivamente hermano los bergoglianos están tratando de cambiar el foco de atención porque ha quedado en evidencia la existencia de una red de pedófilos infiltrada en la Iglesia que están organizados como una mafia parasita a la cual debemos combatir para que no siga impunemente violando a nuestros niños católicos y jóvenes seminaristas.

El bergoglianismo produce obstinación en la herejía y fanatismo por el heresiarca Jorge Mario Bergoglio y rechazo a la fe católica. Los bergoglianos niegan la realidad y la VERDAD absoluta divinamente revelada por eso su pecado es de Malicia y de blasfemia contra el Espiritu Santo al impugnar la verdad divinamente revelada por Dios a la Iglesia. Esta gente no es que no vean la realidad … More

Mr. Bergoglio then start by setting an example and, being so hypocritical, stop protecting your life with snipers and bodyguards who are willing to kill anyone to protect you life.
The verbiage of these liberals are characterized by hypocrisy:

Bergoglio is a disobedient who believes he is ABOVE God. . And those who obey the one who disobeys God also disobey God and rebel against God. It is not surprising that he gave the title to his heretical book: "ON HEAVEN and the earth" Because he has not only disobeyed Saint Ignatius of Loyola and Saint Thomas Aquinas in the end to all the doctors of the Church and to all the Saints, but he has … More

Nb: Schoenborn was not the author of the catechism--he did not write one word. He was the editorial secretary, a cut and paste man.
Lisi Sterndorfer: it seems to me that this move, besides of being of the liking of current colegues at the communist party, is aimed at further "developments" in other areas, in the future: HOMOSEXUALS, baby

What doctrinal authority does the 1992 Catechism have? It reflects the thought, essentially, of its author Schoenborn under the direction of Ratzinger. It is not authorative, just a useful compendium of Catholic doctrine
Whenever this deceitful king of the filthy homos opens his mouth, his followers are inflicted with a death penalty.
Jesus Is Truth, Purity.
If anyone says that it is possible that at some time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the Church which is different from that which the Church has understood and understands: let him be Anathema.

Ladaria insults our intelligence by insisting the pope's change of doctrine on capital punishment, contradicting his predecessors, is "development".

Remember folks, if Pope Francis has altered the Catechism it is because he didn't accept the Catechism as it was. We usually call these people heretics.

As almost unbelievable sex abuse scandals close in on the Vatican, it could really do with some good publicity. How about an eye-catching initiative by Pope Francis?

Notice this headline. Francis does not have the power to formally change the doctrines of the Church.

Ranjith recently said he does not think the State should bring back the death penalty, but he did not entirely dismiss it, in line with what the Catechism used to teach. He gave current example of criminals peddling drugs from prison, killing young lives
