    Francis On Homosexuals: “The Lord Will Save Everyone” (Video)Francis claimed that everyone will be saved during his September 15 in-flight press conference thus qualifying Christ's death as superfluous.The blasphemy went unnoticed until NovusOrdoWatch.org (January 3) paid attention to it. While taking about the vice of homosexuality, Francis said,“Respect everyone. The Lord is good and will save everyone — do not say this aloud [laughs] — but the Lord wants to save everyone. Please do not make the Church deny her truth. Many, many people of homosexual orientation approach the Sacrament of Penance, they approach to ask priests for advice, the...

    LGBTQ lobby has already triumphed at the SynodThe wrestling match over a link to an American LGBTQ organisation on the Synod website - put, removed, put back - reveals just how influential the gay lobby is today at the top of the Church. It amounts to the official recognition of a group disavowed by the American bishops, condemned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith 22 years ago, but now promoted by Pope Francis.A link is worth more than a hundred theological and magisterial documents. This is the lesson that was taught recently by the Synod on Synodality,...

    [Catholic Caucus] It Really Is A Sin-Nod In The Worst Way Some took umbrage with me for calling those papal gabfest sessions "sin-nods" as opposed to synods. Well, let's just say there are some occasions where I wished I was in error, for that is literally what happened a few days ago with this "synod of bishops". Earlier this month, the sin-nod removed a link to New Ways Ministries from its website. How it got there in the first place will remain a mystery for now. Anyway, the bishops restored the link earlier this week and APOLOGIZED to the...

    Yesterday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it is rescinding waivers of non-discrimination requirements issued during the Trump Administration to South Carolina, Texas and Michigan, along with certain child welfare agencies in those states. The waivers allowed faith-based foster care placement agencies to receive federal funds even though they select foster parents on the basis of religion. (See prior posting.) In its release yesterday, HHS summarized the background for its action: Through these waivers, States and child welfare agencies – including States and organizations that did not make such requests - were granted exemptions from program nondiscrimination...

    National Catholic Reporter ^ | October 13, 2021 | Daniel P. Horan
    Why Catholics should use preferred gender pronouns and namesNames play an important role in the Catholic tradition. At the celebration of baptism, the first question posed to the parents is "What name do you give this child?" At confirmation, it is customary for the confirmation candidate to select and embrace the name of a patron saint. Many members of religious congregations adopt a new name as part of their religious profession, even when their "legal" names (on government documents like birth certificates) do not reflect it. Clergy and religious alike take on new titles and appellations such as "Father," "Sister,"...
