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.
