Pope Francis' Decision.

A decision that will have an adverse effect on many people.

This Pope Francis is no Pope. He is out to ruin the Catholic Church, since he knows that if he allows homosexuals to be recognized in anyway, then, according to him, there is no sin.

The Holy Bible, on which Catholic doctrine is based, clearly states that homosexuality is a sin, and therefore the conclusion of the 2014 Catholic Synod contravenes a very important commandment of Christianity.

Those people (homosexuals) are not even gay. They are homosexuals, and they have managed to corrupt the word "gay" to equate their lifestyle(s). That alone is dishonest and thievery in the real world.

Also, any homosexual, who thinks that he/she is a Christian is deceiving himself or herself; and unless they repent from their behavior, they can never be saved, since there is no evidence that Jesus, Our Lord, ever accepted them. (That includes lesbians, bisexuals, etc.).

This Pope Francis is a fraud in many people's view, and as a result, a lot of members will leave the Catholic Church, for changing the Church's teachings in a negative manner, as he has now helped the Synod to do, will have bad repercussions on the whole faith of Christianity.

Sin is sin, and there is no gainsaying about it or there must not be two ways around it; and that is what any Synod's resolution must reflect and/or resonate, particularly, in this day and age, when a majority of people are losing interest in organized religion.

In other words, the world is becoming more and more anti-religion, and Christianity seems to disown its influence in many countries.

Not the United States of America, Britain and most countries can call themselves as Christian nations anymore, owing to the fact that the Christian religion seems to have become lukewarm and unenthusiastic.

Pope Francis has to know the effect that this decision will have on both believers and unbelievers alike; and Atheists will have a field day with it (decision). However, if there is a way to overturn it, some Arch bishops and bishops must get together and do exactly that, before a division ensued in the Catholic Church.

Thank God, I, myself, am not a Catholic; but I am a devout Christian; and so I sympathize with many Catholics, because I think their leader is leading them straight to HELL.

Where is the "decision" found?

The "decision" was in the news all day yesterday, that homosexuals can make a "positive" contribution in society, and therefore the Catholic Church Synod will be finding a way to fit them and their lifestyle into Church proceedings or activities. Pandering to homosexuals was in itself a sin, in my opinion. (...and forgive me, but I had to paragraph the story). (...and also, there shouldn't be any offence, but I had to give the Synod a piece of my mind).

Thank you for that clarification -- some days I just do not do news. Personally I have always had trouble with the difference between condoning activity and loving the person engaged in it. Sin is sin. But we would have awfully small congregation if sinners were barred. But we do not celebrate adultery. Should we celebrate any other sinful conduct?

You are right, Eric. And thanks for your response; however, no one is being barred, if one is ready to change one's ways. That is called repentance; and the Holy Bible teaches that. Life is not a mirror; and when you step away, after looking into it, does your image stay behind? No, it goes with you. The change is observing that everything about you is in place, where you want it, and that helps you to maintain your self assurance for your own good. I hope you catch my drift.

Celibacy prior to marriage. Seems the only really proper approach to fornication. In that some "marriages" are not recognized -- well then.....

Amen on repentance.

Fornication is "sin", in biblical terms; but it is a whole different from sodomy, with reference to homosexuality. The Holy Bible, which many believe is the word of God, does not change; and so, why must a Pope or Arch Bishop or bishop or priest translate it in any other way? It will be like paraphrasing the Bible; and that is what is happening here with Pope Francis' 2014 Synod decision.

(P.S. "Sodomy" may be going too far; but, no offence. I just need to be frank).

Yes I should not have used that term. Let us say sexual activity should not be extra marital. I heard the Synod statements through our sacred heart radio. It was clearly a politico pandering to the LGBT community. But I am not so sure it went too far. Being inclusive does not mean being condoning. They allow adulterers to be included.

Well, did the 2014 Catholic Synod consider traditional marriage as being the basis of Christian family? Of course it did. But would its members close their eyes to any other form of marriage (same-sex marriage) that was being introduced into society? Of course, they wouldn't. Why not? ...and a little child could tell us the answer that the Church wouldn't give it (same-sex marriage) its blessing. So, it would be a waste of time for everyone concerned, as favoring Homosexuals and Lesbians with any form of recognition would just be like dangling a piece of carrot in front of a Donkey, for it (Donkey) would never reach it. They (members) knew what they were doing to be deceitful; but they went ahead and did it; with the approval of the Head of the Catholic Church. What would that do to Christianity as a whole? There were too many questions to be answered on the issue by the 2014 Catholic Synod and its members; and until they did that, its members were not being honest with themselves. Unless some of them were homosexuals themselves, looking to impose their deviant lifestyle on the Church; and that would be wrong and unacceptable. Eric, one could go on and on.

You make excellent points and I will now watch this more closely. Thank you for your time in explaining the situation and the hazards. At this point I must error on the side of love and inclusion. But at least now I do it with my eyes wide open to the pitfalls in this matter.

Thank you for your time too, Dr. Eric; PhD.
