I don't know what that portends, but I'm glad SOME representative of the Holy Triune God is standing up for the truth.
Compare that to the language of Pope Francis
on gay marriage. I used to pimp Card. Bergoglio's quote about gay marriage ("Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God"), but since becoming Pope, he's been more "diplomatic" on the topic:
In his remarks to Welby, Francis said he hoped they could collaborate in promoting the sacredness of life "and the stability of families founded on marriage." ...
Significantly, though, Francis didn't specify that marriage should be based on a union between a man and woman, which is how Benedict XVI and John Paul II routinely defined it in a way that made clear their opposition to same-sex marriage.
Vatican officials said Francis' phrasing was a diplomatic attempt to make his point without making a provocative pronouncement....
which the pro-gay article I linked above points out:
A diplomatic way of being against gay marriage? Wow. Once politicians start doing that -- such as when Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both stopped defining marriage as "between a man and woman" a few years back -- they eventually support same-sex marriage. I'm not saying Francis is anywhere near there (though he did reportedly support civil unions, as I noted in a post a couple of months back). But having harshly railed against gay marriage back when he was in Argentina, only to lose that battle, he may be seeing that the handwriting is on the wall and that he's got better things to do with his time. And that can only be seen as a loss for Maggie Gallagher and other anti-equality advocates who hoped the pope would loudly lead their crusade.
I sure hope Pope Francis starts sounding a bit more truthful
like the RO's Krillin. Seriously. Conciliar or not, you can't have 'Church' in the name and not denounce evil.
And why is the Vatican always "correcting" what the Pope reportedly said? This isn't the only time "the Vatican" has re-worded, or denied, what Pope Francis said.
