What are your thoughts on Pope Francis’ latest comments?

Pope Francis has been in the news a lot lately for his comments. The media seems to be taking them as a progressive move for the Catholic Church. Others say that the Pope is being taken out of context.

I’m not Catholic, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on his comments.

Here are some of the most recent:

We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.

 

And then the next day he said this:

“In all its phases and at every age, human life is always sacred and always of quality. And not as a matter of faith, but of reason and science!”

Pope Francis characterized abortion as a product of a “widespread mentality of profit, the ‘throwaway culture,’ which has today enslaved the hearts and minds of so many.”

So what are your thoughts on these or other comments from the Pope?

  1. As long as you have the context, there really is nothing more to say.

    Of course, the media, desperate to sensationalize, and support the Profligate Worldview, will take his comments out of context and twist them beyond recognition.

    He is nothing more than a sinner saved by grace, and he seems to recognize that, which is a rare thing in a pope (his first comment to the cardinals after being elected was, “May God forgive you for what you have done!”).

    I like him.

  2. If it were true, what the liberal media were saying, I would thank God.

  3. He is not denying the teaching of the scriptures, I think he is trying to put things in “neutral” to be able to have real dialogue with people outside the church who want to just religion- bash over these very challenging issues. Let’s remember, God is clear in His word as to what is sin, which includes abortion and homosexuality… And lying, cheating, adultery, stealing covet ness, murder….etc etc. None of us are worthy…We ALL need a Saviour. The Pope knows that too. John3:16
