A release date has not yet been set for Mel Gibson’s upcoming “Resurrection,” the sequel to 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ.” Gibson, like his father, is an ultra-Catholic “sedevacantist,” meaning he believes the Catholic church was led into apostasy at the Second Vatican Council and that all of the popes who followed after the death of Pius XII in 1958 are imposters. I would not wish that anyone get their theology from Gibson.
- Bishop Schneider: ‘Discernment’ now means to ‘allow to sin’
- Meet the conservative blogger priest who says it’s okay for Catholics to pray for pope Francis to die
Conservative Catholics continue to rattle their sabers in response to pope Francis’s lifting of the ban on communion for remarried divorcees. It’s quite notable that the conservative blogger priest mentioned in the second article has advised his readers that praying for the end of Francis’s reign – by one way or another – is absolutely fine.
Compromising Judases are all over the world.
Since Francis has lifted the ban on communion for remarried divorcees, one could argue that Catholicism’s convoluted marriage annulment and convalidation processes are now obsolete and unnecessary.
When a Christian school steps away (or slinks away) from Biblical inerrancy, it’s time to shutter the windows and padlock the doors.
In this article, Francis reminds Catholics they’re going to die, but the best he can offer them is to hope that they can possibly merit Heaven. That won’t work. Bible Christians who mistakenly believe Catholicism is Christian should read the article, “Pope: Conversion is for believers and non-believers alike,” in which Francis declared “No one can say…I am already saved.” See here.
Conservative Catholics are balking at the determined efforts of church liberals to recognize and condone same-sex relationships, but liberal Catholic theologians are now arguing that Francis’s lifting of the ban on communion for heterosexual couples in “irregular situations” (i.e., remarried divorcees and unmarried cohabitors) should also apply to same-sex couples.
Poland is the last bastion of fervent Romanism in Europe, but young Polish Catholics are increasingly alienated by their church’s symbiotic relationship with the Polish government, which is controlled by the ultra-conservative, ultra-Catholic, populist Prawo i Sprawiedliwość (Law and Justice) party.
While this is a comical satire piece, it’s not all that far-fetched in today’s world.
