ROME, May 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Pope Francis has appointed radically liberal, pro-homosexual Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe as a consultor for the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
The Holy Father made the appointment on Saturday, according to Vatican Radio.
Father Radcliffe, an Englishman, author and speaker, was Master of the Dominican order from 1992 to 2001, and is an outspoken proponent of homosexuality.
"We must accompany [gay people] as they discern what this means, letting our images be stretched open, he said in a 2006 religious education lecture in Los Angeles. This means watching 'Brokeback Mountain,' reading gay novels, living with our gay friends and listening with them as they listen to the Lord."
In 2005, as the Vatican deliberated the admission of men with homosexual tendencies to study for the priesthood in the wake of the Church sex abuse scandal, Father Radcliffe said that homosexuality should not bar men from the priesthood, and rather, those who oppose it should be banned. ...

So I won't
Why didn’t JP2 clean up this mess when he had the chance?
Unless Catholics admit this has become a cult to them there's no
choice at this point. This homo sickness has gone to far, but it's only just begun.
Also in the article:
It is true that Radcliffe has opposed gay marriage, the post said, but his farcical opposition rests on grounds entirely contrary to those of the Church: Radcliffe opposes it because, in his words: gay marriage ultimately, we believe, demeans gay people by forcing them to conform to the straight world.”
I’ll say it - Timmy the pervert is a heretic and needs excommunication post haste.
If this perv-acceptance-embracing trend is not reversed the Catholic Church is in deep doo doo. Not with me, but with God.
So to be a good Catholic according to this priest is to watch ‘Brokeback Mountain.’ I think I will pass.
I’ve always said, this Pope is either very right or very wrong.
I’m leaning to the latter these days.
Satan’s smoke is in the Vatican, the wicked cabal climbs to the top. I pray for the faithful traditionalist forces.
The corruption and sinfulness of the world can’t continue much longer. Prepare for chastisement, and trust in God.
Salvation, Does the Pope speak for Jesus on this topic?
I think that the corrupt “liberal” clique took advantage of his ill health in the last years of his life.
Benedict XVI might have resigned for that very reason, he feared a massive power grab if he became senile and sickly.
Amen- to your words, but it begs a question-
appoint this person?-
Why doesn’t Rome DE-FROCK him?
Is satan in control??- I can only pray that this is temporary
I have to agree - I left a protestant church b/c the leadership was allowing and covering up child abuse in the church. If you know what is wrong and condone it the guilt lies on you as well. They say it’s for the “good” of the whole church to pay hush money and allow the perverts to remain deacons, etc. - no that’s serving Satan and feeding your own pride. No different to condone queerdom and spread the devilish lie that it does not displease the Lord.
I wish Benedict would come back. He made a big mistake by resigning as the Pope.
“Why doesnt Rome DE-FROCK him?”
Francis just gave him a lot of power. Doesn’t sound like Francis has any intention to defrock him.
Who listens to those guys when it’s public knowledge that a large percentage of Priests are faggots and pedophiles?
He has his minions, but they will not reign forever. IMO a great purification is on the horizon. The gift of Fatima may be finally opened.
Before this however, the debauchery that currently infests the world must be cleansed. All Christians should keep praying and keep the faith for whatever trials may come.
“Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
(The Bible, New Testament, Romans 1:26,27)
He’s just being misunderstood.
