New Pope: Same-Sex Marriage ´A
Machination of the Father of Lies´

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/13/2013 10:01:43 PM

New Pope Francis I is an ardent opponent of same-sex marriage, in coincidence with traditional Catholic belief. In 2010, he wrote, “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.” The media remains aghast at the fact that Francis I is a Catholic. They should get used to it.

Comments:
I guess he won´t be be taking orders from 0bama either. Heavy s/o The leftists all over the world must be apoplectic. How´s old Pelosi feeling right now? This is the entire article.

I hope the new Pope directs the Catholic hospitals to shut down rather than submit to Obamacare. And does so very publicly. It would be nice if he perhaps threw in a few comparisons of Obama to the leftists thugs who have ruled over much of South America.

This is not germane to the article, but 5 is correct. Breitbart has done the "Francis I" thing twice today. Liberals just love that kind of stuff so they can attack the messenger as :illiterate" or "stupid." LoFo voters wn´t get it, but the snots will. Careful w/things we can easily control. We always have to be a step above,

Hope he directs the bishops, cardinals, or whomever to call in all the Democrap leaders who are Catholic for an informal chat about their ideas on abortion and same sex marriage. I also hope that it is made clear that if they don´t get in line with the Church, then they will be publicly excommunicated. That would be so SWEET! Doubt that it will happen, but I can dream. lol

It´s wonderful listening to all the talking heads like Cokie Roberts, Diane Sawyer, Charlie Rose, etc., saying what Pope Francis must do to lead the Church.

Essentially, they want the Church to not be the Catholic Church anymore.

The new pope also has a view on his version of social justice which involves the spiritual awakening by people,not making demands of others for government enforced charity.In other words people can be materialistic poor but have the spirit to pursue what really matter in life.

Millions of kids are being born into deplorable situations not because of poverty on it´s face but the lack of opportunity on self empowerment. People that support self empowerment are jailed by corrupt world leaders and it´ a fight headed this way. The war on homeschooling in a minor part.The same with the war on boy scouts.


The main catalyst of left wing empowerment is the collective and the participants adhering to every aspect of it.Education has nothing to do with a job leading to self sufficiency unless you land a government job.

I was terrified when Benedict left as Benedict was an excellent pope despite the bad press---he was not a progressive and fought valiantly but his stamina wasnt up to it. A telling act for me was his commitment to have the Tridentine mass celebrated and available as is the regrettable liturgical rite of Novus ordo --- that was monumental. And it has had ripple effects out here----liberal parishes are being held to account, and being nudged into Latin Mass again.

Count me as another non-Catholic who is grateful for the strong, clear, wise words of this new pope.

In one simple sentence the new Pope explained why believers can not go against God´s plan.

We can accept that some people do not accept God´s plan for their lives; that is called tolerance, not marriage.

Thank you Holy Spirit! As a Catholic, I´m thrilled.

Lets not forget that our official representative for the installation is not only pro-abortion Biden, but also pro-gay marriage Biden who opened the door for zippy to "evolve" and get the ball rolling to force gay marriage down our throats. ( pun intended ).

I would like nothing better than for Biden to be refused communion in front of the whole world. Barring that, I hope that the Vatican will tell Biden to not even think about coming forward for communion and to stay in his seat lest he be embarrassed in front of the whole world.

I am not Catholic, in fact, if the Catholic Church were to follow its proscriptions to the leeter none of my family can be admitted to the Church. Although my wife and I were married in the Catholic Church, and our daughter was as well, but my surname is one of the 77 that were subject to the Great Cursing of Arch Bishop Gavin Dunbar in October of 1525. There have been many Papal Petition to restore those names in the past 588 years, but all have been declined. Yet, as i said there are immediate members of my family who are practing Catholics despite the long-standing injunction against us and others.

So while I admire what Pope Francis has declared, I wouldn´t look for any substantive action against the Cafeteria Catholics.

Liberals don´t want to step up to the plate and bring their game face. They would rather everybody else come down to their level(usually the filth).

I applauded the selection of this Pope and his statements yesterday. I just hope this guy follows through. If he denies Biden the Communion, then I might start taking him seriously. I have a glimmer of hope in my heart right now that I would like to see erupt into a flame. I am not a Catholic, but I would like to see a Pope stand up to the liberal Catholics in America.

I love the fact that he considers the main duty of the Church to be outreach, not doctrinal debates. To me, that means he is saying "doctrine has been settled". There is no debate on marriage, abortion, and contraception, the Church has settled that. Now on to the important work of helping the poor and sick, and bringing as many as possible to His glory. Francis was an absolute perfect choice for Pope and he chose a totally fitting name. Viva il Papa!!!

I´m not a Catholic, but glad to hear the new Pope speak the truth. The Bible precepts, laws, etc. are for the betterment of society in general and are an accumulation of wisdom. No lies, no stealing, value Life, value love of our neighbors by recognizing that "Love" itself is the highest value in life. Civilization above the animal level requires higher values which our country has lost its way on recently. It led Rome to destruction.

Benedict made some very unfortunate statements that repeatedly sympathized with the Left (on environmentalism and anti-capitalism). As much as the Left despises the Church for its stand against abortion, a Church that has socialist sympathies will be considered a useful ally nonetheless. If Francis uses his concern for "the poor" to justify socialist intervention, his good qualities will sadly be all in vain. We´ll see.

Blessings for Pope Francis and the catholic church! It is a miracle to me that the leaders of the church chose a "reformer", someone who wants to lead the church back to "basics" with love and compassion. Isn´t it interesting how CINO´s(catholics in name only) in the US political class have twisted and tried to "legislate"their religion in a "politically correct" mess?

Not a Catholic, I´m very glad for this choice; he draws the line in the sand from the outset and that is an excellent sign. He doesn´t affect me in any way, but perhaps those who call themselves Catholic but don´t pay attn to their own church, will take notice. Amoral, relativistic living does nothing but undermine family units and destroy society & culture. Just look around.

I, too, am a Catholic and very happy with the choice of Francis as our Pope. It´s nice to read all the above comments from those who are not Catholic or were at one time, supporting this man. I am concerned with the title "social justice" which I see in our Sunday bulletin. It rankles me and it reminds me constantly of what the pseudo-Pres. of the US wants as well. Only his desire is to make the wealthy suffer. Will this Pope resort to socialism? I am waiting.

Please learn a few more facts before you condemn him as a "Leftist Jesuit." In fact, he fought for reform of the Jesuits and the liberation theology in his country for years. That is what he is known for.

And for all you non-Catholics, what is stopping you? If you can see the Church´s authority and beauty in this, if you can feel the reality of the successor of Peter, then there is not a moment to lose. You must become Catholic. Your soul is calling you to the truth. I myself was drawn up to the Church with the arms of Benedict XVI. You can be too.

Such a lefty he was that the order farmed him out to some remote high school to teach chemistry.... until JPII found him and put him on track. Certainly not the Jesuit of the post VII era.

Once we establish the same sex marriage racket for what it is, another effort to remove spiritual influences from daily life--- replacing faith and religion as the foundations of individuals with totalitarianism and a secular state, gay marriage as marriage will go away and domestic unions will remain. But this is an attack on the faithful, make no mistake.

Yeah, because gay marriage is so much more offensive and detrimental than say, protecting pedophile priests. At least the gays are consenting adults. Now go sell some of that Vatican gold and feed some starving children.

From the little I have heard about Francis I, I seriously doubt he will cowtow to any of the Lib´s agendas...in fact he may squash them and force the members of the clergy to stop being little commies and Alinskyites by pushing for this Social Justice BS.

Clergy around the world has long been heavily involved in ´Social Issues´. As it pertains to religion and souls, fine, but when it crosses the line into political action and agenda´s as Alinsky organizations are, I feel this Pope will rein in those ´useful idiots´.

The Vatican is clinging to a very conservative code of sexual behavior. When priests are having sex with young parishioners it shows that this
orthodoxy has lost a lot of credibility.
And Massachusetts is a rather Catholic state, but gay marriage is well established there. Also Spain and Argentina have recognized marriage equality.

The more I hear, see and read about Pope Francis, the more I love him!
Those (media and others) who want the Church to change are victims of the horrible cultural shift to the dark side. Do not put your ideas onto the Church - it stands immutable on life, death and all behavior in between.
Thanks to the non-Catholics here who are rejoicing with us! Thank God for those Cardinals who heard the Voice of the Holy Spirit!

#66 The Catholic Church isn´t simply ´clinging to´ its orthodoxy. It is protecting the teachings of the Natural Law. It has no more authority to alter its teachings on sexuality than it does in calling a blue sky purple. A blue sky is what it is. Furthermore, its orthodoxy has nothing to do with sexual abuse. The sexual abuse arose as INDIVIDUAL CLERGY decided NOT to live by the orthodox teachings of the RCC.

Sorry for the double post!

VIVA IL PAPA~!

Pope Francis may God Bless you and may he keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you. We are STARVED for real leadership that has a moral God based virtuous core.

Let me say how deeply proud I am to read the posts on Lucianne offering support to Pope Francis and Catholics around the world. It makes me proud to be an LDotter!

And so I will continue with the last post I wrote to explain that many of us may not be Catholic but we honor you with our prayers and happiness and wishes for success and leadership out of the Vatican.

Again, I am Christian/Pagan and begin my prayers each morning with "Thank you Father Great Creator of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen..."

That is who we sorts pray to. I speak only for myself of course..

He´s refused to allow the Tridentine Mass in Argentina. Forbids it.. He has also received "communion" from a Protestant pastor, and has allowed the ecumenical model. He may not deal with errant bishops well, as Ratzinger did. He may be a " common man" pope to many, but remember this Church as been infiltrated, at the very least, with much Marxist teaching since the late sixties.

This Catholic will wait to see....

The Catholic church has been blessed with, now, three outstanding Popes. Blessed John Paul. II, Benedict XVI and now Francis. It must be apparent to all that the Holy Spirit has given us these wonderful men. John Paul II and Benedict clarified Vatican II. Now Francis will evangelize the faith to the world. Seriously needed. I love this new Pope Francis. Thank you Holy Spirit, and thank you Cardinals for listening and accepting the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Nobody should expect anything different from the new Pope. Popes´ views are set in the concrete of doctrine. Popes are enablers of doctrine. Doctrine rules. Doctrine is number 1.

The Pope also said that gays are to be treated respectfully. That Catholics do not recognize the union of gays as a traditional marriage does not mean that Catholics shun gays. It simply means that we believe the definition of marriage is the union of a man and woman. Same sex marriage does not fit that definition. True Religion does not bend to fleeting,ever-changing contemporary politics. Rather, it is politics that should seek to conform to bedrock moral principles.

Actually the Catholic Church has much changed over the centuries. It has given up on burning heretics at the stake. Pope Innocent X denounced the Peace of Westphalia of 1648 as immoral because it gave recognition to Protestantism, yet today very few people question that Protestantism is here to stay. Supposedly eternal truths have proved to be transitory.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $98,169 in taxes on $481,098 income last year, according to tax returns the White House released Friday. They paid an effective federal income tax rate of 20.4 percent. The couple´s 2013 federal income tax return was posted on the White House website four days before the tax filing deadline. The 42-page document shows the Obamas reported donating $59,251 to 32 charities. That works out to 12.3 percent of their adjusted gross income. Their largest charitable gift, $8,751, went to the Fisher House Foundation, which supports military families. The Obamas also released their

Joining MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Friday, senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett was asked if the resignation of Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius signaled that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act would be smooth going forward. Jarrett said that neither she nor the president could guarantee that the implementation of the ACA would be perfect, but that it was an important task to improve Americans’ access to health insurance. “Going forward, do you think your past all of the bumps on health care on the rollout and that from now going forward you can change the dynamic?”

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Cable news and the Internet have many things in common, one of which is that they are both populated by lots of shameless attention-seekers. Perhaps it’s time to count the supposed Democratic House “candidate” Mike Dickinson — he of “war on Fox News” fame — as one of them? Dickinson has made a bit of a name for himself this year by claiming that, if elected to Eric Cantor‘s House seat, he will wage war on the NRA, the tea party, and Fox News. Since then, he’s been in multiple Twitter wars and has appeared on Fox for confrontations with

WASHINGTON -- A still-secret Senate Intelligence Committee report calls into question the legal foundation of the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists, a finding that challenges the key defense on which the agency and the Bush administration relied in arguing that the methods didn’t constitute torture. The report also found that the spy agency failed to keep an accurate account of the number of individuals it held, and that it issued erroneous claims about how many it detained and subjected to the controversial interrogation methods. The CIA has said that about 30 detainees underwent

What do you get when the state of Oregon, Planned Parenthood, and pharmaceutical companies that produce contraceptives get in bed together? The Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC). Marketed under the pretense of trying to prevent youth pregnancy and STD transmission, the conference, which took place earlier this week, is actually a platform for promoting a disturbing sexual agenda that has little to do with either.

Last month, team owner Dan Snyder said he was creating a foundation to assist American Indian tribes but gave no indication he had plans to change the name, which he says honors Native Americans.

A federal judge criticized Attorney General Eric Holder for directing prosecutors to pursue shorter prison sentences for drug crimes before new guidelines for sentencing had been approved. The U.S. Sentencing Commission approved the reduced sentences for federal drug trafficking offenses on Thursday. Holder endorsed the move last month, and the Justice Department instructed prosecutors not to object if defendants sought the newly-proposed guidelines during sentencing. The Justice Department’s eagerness to apply more lenient sentencing before it had been approved through the appropriate channels frustrated commission member Judge William H. Pryor Jr., despite his support for the reform. “I regret that, before we voted

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
