Homosexualist Synod Chief: “Francis In Full Agreement”

He knows he is "in full agreement" with Francis, Luxembourg Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich SJ told US Catholic activist Richard Smaglick (LifeSiteNews.com, August 6).

Asked if homosexual acts might no longer be considered a grave sin by the Synod, Hollerich was evasive: "I don't know what the Synod will bring." He said he wanted to listen to "the people of the world, what they express." No one knows what the phrase "the people of the world" means in this context. In Australia, participation in the Synod was less than 0.05% of Catholics.

Smaglick countered that Scripture and Catholic tradition have taught for 2,000 years that "sodomy is a sin and abomination that cries out to heaven." Hollerich ridicules himself by trying to ridicule the Bible, claiming that it says that "the sun revolves around the earth" and that we must therefore "interpret the Bible."

However, the Bible only says - like modern languages - that "the sun rises" and "the sun sets" (e.g. Ecclesiastes 1:4). If Hollerich's pseudo-argument were true, then it could be used to ridicule any statement in the Bible.

For Smaglick it is obvious, that Hollerich and Francis want to use the synod to contradict the Bible and canonise homosexual acts. Hollerich is already receiving the first diocesan reports and will produce a draft in September.

Stop putting words into these holy humble Francis followers he was so deep in prayer that he was not clear he meant to say that holy Humble Francis and himself smell sheep and are very caring about the poor as they sometimes can see poor people pass their windows, so stop criticising and being so rigid these holy prelates would never say these things, these films have clearly been dubbed as like …More
Stop putting words into these holy humble Francis followers he was so deep in prayer that he was not clear he meant to say that holy Humble Francis and himself smell sheep and are very caring about the poor as they sometimes can see poor people pass their windows, so stop criticising and being so rigid these holy prelates would never say these things, these films have clearly been dubbed as like Francis they are so steeped in humbleness and holiness and only have the sheeps best interests at heart and this springtime that Francis has exposed in the church is blossoming for all those with eyes to see and tea with Jimmy Martin is so humble and holy that is just what Francis does as he is synodal as well. Stop snipping at the sidelines and just do as Francis says and stop being so rigid and not nice.

Sounds like the Cardinal is waiting for the poll results to come in. Then he shall be able to adjudicate whether sodomy is a sin or not. At this moment, he does not know. When the Cardinal says love cannot be separated from sexuality, it is a dangerous road and has already been taken. It means the sex act cannot be separated from love and therefore the act (however done) is defined as an …More

When the Cardinal says love cannot be separated from sexuality, it is a dangerous road and has already been taken. It means the sex act cannot be separated from love and therefore the act (however done) is defined as an expression of Christian love, and cannot therefore be mortal sin. Looks like Cupich is refereeing via bilocation.

Certain prelates in positions of power have already made up their minds, the fix is in so to speak.... They are just deciding how to drop the hammer on this issue, and when they do, I would hate to be in their shoes. Oh Heavenly Father, have mercy on us 🙏 🙏 🙏

Wow. This guy has some guts. He asked Cardinal Hollerich if sodomy is still a sin in the Francis' Church.

When the Bible says the sun turns around the earth, it is a reference to the small sun, the full moon of the night that goes around the earth. So the Bible is right. In the translation, the words "night light" was translated to mean sun instead of moon.

Interesting... it seems he wanted to avoid the question.
And the lack of laity participation makes pushing change more difficult, especially when it is noted in several reports.
Most importantly, the media isn't hyping this.
Changing doctrine (impossible) even in the eyes of the world (definitely possible) will be more difficult now.More

1) OK - so he supports s****y and obviously doesn't believe what the Bible says. Sadly for him, that might be his own funeral, but he presumable doesn't care either about all those for whose damnation he may well be responsible. 2) I was under the impression (maybe erroneously) that the death penalty for adulterers reflected the fact that it is a grave sin which results in spiritual death (hell) …More

I'm pretty sure such laws etc were abrogated by the New Law. If I'm wrong on this, I'd be grateful for more info.. 3) I'm not sure how natural laws as described in the Bible have anything to do with sin, grave or otherwise, so that's like catching at straws. 4) I'd love to know which bit of the Bible he's interpreting as saying such behaviour is fine and God's fine with it too. How much clearer could the Bible be on the subject?

This "Cardinal" and Francis probably both are gay themselves.
