He makes Martie look like a good Catholic!

We are surely living in very evil times. I despair. At least I live in a country where I can buy a gun and lots of ammo.

We are sinful. However, I assume that God prefers for us to resist those temptations rather than celebrating sin, wallowing in it, and announcing our “Pride” in parades with banners flaunting our sins.

You have to do it, Miss M, if you haven't yet.

And we ought to try to get you west, as well, away from the urban plague.

You can go back and run for mayor after the war is won.

I will dare say that he has more in common with Vickie Gene Robinson than Martin Luther. When is he going to fly the abomination Rainbow Flag at the Vatican.

This Southern Baptist misses Benedict XVI.

I am a Catholic and I’m getting fed up with this commie/Islamist loving Pope. He should go back to Argentina

Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Mt. 5:48

For this mistake that is diametrically opposed to His word and other similar pronouncements and actions from this "Pope" Francis, I shake the dust off my feet at his door.

“God prefers us weak, Pope Francis says off-the-cuff to youth Krakow, Poland, Jul 30, 2016 / 09:28 am “

Stupidest remark by any pope, ever.

One can only wonder what this counterfeit does at night when the lights are down low.

The weaker we are, the more God's mercy can transform our lives.

Which, actually is the point. Not that you be weak, but that you be transformed. Sinful and weak is where you were before you were transformed. Transformed is the goal and purpose.

The Pope should read Romans again (if he ever has): “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, thay grace may abound? God forbid.” (Romans 6:1, 2)

It seems like the pope has never read Hebrews 5:12-13 and 10:26-27.

Galatians 1:8-9 comes to mind with this worldly pope.

The problem is the “off-the-cuff” nature of the remarks. Not well thought out, apparently.

If he had said something to the effect that God loves us when we are weak, and down and out, because He wants to pour out His mercy on us when we come to Him in our weakness and extreme need, well that’s okay. Of course, contrition and purpose of amendment need to be there to receive this Divine healing.

But to simply say God “prefers” us in our sins and weakness is at best very awkward, and at worst seems like heresy.

The Pope speaking “off-the-cuff” is only a problem if he really can’t remember what Catholic Doctrine is and has been for a long time.
