    [Catholic Caucus] Gays in the seminary, pope eats his wordsAfter the remark on ‘faggotry’ in the priesthood, a sensational turn by Pope Francis: he encourages an aspiring gay seminarian not to give up. An inconceivable contradiction, which turns into a victory for the LGBT lobby.By now it can't even be called a surprise. After the uproar caused by the remark about the ‘atmosphere of faggotry’ in seminaries and among priests, obviously, the gay lobby could not sit idly by. So first a BBC report broke on a young Sicilian gay man who claims he was subjected to reparative therapies resembling...

    [Catholic Caucus] The pope, the chatter, the corruptionWe know that Pope Bergoglio is obsessed with the idea of ​​chatter. Every time he meets priests and nuns he brings up this concept. He did it countless times and, punctually, he did it again in the house of the Pious Disciples of the Divine Master nuns, where on Wednesday he met seventy-two priests from the diocese of Rome (more than one hundred and fifty had been invited) ordained in the last ten years . It is not difficult to imagine the multiple problems of these priests in a metropolis like Rome. Yet...

    [Catholic Caucus] Hypocrisy and same-sex blessingsBlessing couples in irregular situations and same-sex couples is not analogous to blessing an individual businessman who may exploit people.Today I saw the headline, “Pope denounces ‘hypocrisy’ of those who criticise LGBT blessings.” I found that disconcerting, because I have been critical of LGBT blessings. It grieves me to be regarded as a hypocrite by the Holy Father.Why does Pope Francis call such criticism hypocrisy? He explains: “Nobody gets scandalised if I give my blessings to a businessman who perhaps exploits people, and this is a very grave sin. But they get scandalised if I...

The new “Dubia Brothers” include two of the original four (the other two now deceased), plus the modern confessor Cardinal Zen, the contemplative Cardinal Sarah, and Mexican stalwart Cardinal Íñiguez.Editor’s note: as the subject of doctrinal development is at the heart of the new Dubia, and indeed, the whole question of Modernism and neo-Modernism, we present again the work of theologian Fr. Brian Harrison with his logical analysis of the death penalty controversy. This analysis can be applied to evaluate all the alleged “developments” now...

    Pope: Church courts must never manipulate facts for a desired endVATICAN CITY (CNS) — The promotion of justice, including in marriage tribunals, requires a “synodal spirit” of pastoral accompaniment, heartfelt listening and using “the right reasoning” in discernment, Pope Francis said.This attitude of synodality, he said, “allows for bringing out the essential characteristics” of the judicial process, which is to be at the service of a justice that is inextricably linked to truth and the salvation of souls.In fact, “any deliberate alteration or manipulation of the facts, aimed at obtaining a pragmatically desired result, is not permissible,” he said. This...

    Religious persecution an ‘insane’ act, pope saysTo discriminate against or persecute those who profess their faith is an intolerable act that threatens the fraternal bonds shared by humanity, Pope Francis said.“How can we allow that in this society — which is so civilized — there are people who are persecuted simply because they publicly profess their faith? Not only is it unacceptable; it’s inhuman, it’s insane,” the pope said.In a video message released by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network Jan. 3, the pope offered his prayer intention for the month of January, which he dedicated to people who suffer from...

    Hungary-Slovakia: Don't Wonder About What the Pope Says Returning from his trip to Hungary and Slovakia from September 12 to 15, 2021, Pope Francis answered questions from journalists on the plane. Several of his responses drew harsh comments in Italy.Thus, on Aldo Maria Valli’s blog of September 16, a “young priest” had this to say on the subject of “marriage for all”: “The Pope, after having correctly reiterated that the Church is against same-sex marriage because it does not have the power to change the sacraments… Only to say an outrageous remark as if it were taken for granted,...
