After Years Of Wooing LGBTQ+, Pope Francis Suddenly Reverses Course Causing Revolt Among Catholic Priests Demanding Same-Sex Union Blessing

The Vatican said on Monday that priests cannot bless same-sex unions and that such blessings are not valid, in a ruling that disappointed gay Catholics who had hoped their Church was becoming more welcoming under Pope Francis. In some countries, parishes and ministers have begun blessing same-sex unions in lieu of marriage, and there have been calls for bishops to institutionalize de facto such blessings. Conservatives in the 1.3 billion-member Roman Catholic Church have expressed alarm over such practices.

A dissident band of Roman Catholic priests leading a disobedience campaign against the Vatican said on Tuesday they would carry on blessing same-sex couples in defiance of Church orders.

For years now, the roman pontifex maximus has be ardently wooing the LGBTQ+ people with such affirming statements like “who am I to judge gay people?”, “God loves the LGBTQ+ just the way they are” and his effusive support for transgenders. So imagine their shock and surprise when today the Vatican suddenly switches gears and says no-go to blessing same-sex unions. The Bergoglio giveth, and the Bergoglio taketh away. But, prophecy watchers, don’t lose heart, it’s just misdirection, the pope has not changed his support of the LGBTQ+.

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.” Revelation 13:5,6 (KJB)

Pope Francis is doing this merely to pacify his conservative base as he angles for the larger prize of Chrislam with the Muslims and the Jews. Compared to that, the LGBQ+ is merely ‘small potatoes’, not worth trifling with. For those of you who believe the bible, just think about how ludicrous it is demand a ‘blessing’ for something that God has already condemned. Pure nonsense. If you’re a Catholic, and don’t want to burn in Hell, then right now would be a great time to get saved.

Rebel priests defy Vatican, vow to bless same-sex couples

FROM REUTERS: The Vatican said on Monday that priests cannot bless same-sex unions and that such blessings are not valid, in a ruling that disappointed gay Catholics who had hoped their Church was becoming more welcoming under Pope Francis.

In some countries, parishes and ministers have begun blessing same-sex unions in lieu of marriage, and there have been calls for bishops to institutionalize de facto such blessings. Conservatives in the 1.3 billion-member Roman Catholic Church have expressed alarm over such practices.

“We members of the Parish Priests Initiative are deeply appalled by the new Roman decree that seeks to prohibit the blessing of same-sex loving couples. This is a relapse into times that we had hoped to have overcome with Pope Francis,” the Austrian-based group said in a statement.

“We will — in solidarity with so many — not reject any loving couple in the future who ask to celebrate God’s blessing, which they experience every day, also in a worship service.”

The Parish Priests Initiative led by Father Helmut Schueller has long been a thorn in the side of the Vatican. The group wants Church rules changed so that priests can marry and women can become priests. It has said it will break Church rules by giving communion to Protestants and divorced Catholics who remarry.

Founded in 2006 by nine priests, the initiative says it now has around 350 members from the ranks of the official Church and more than 3,000 lay supporters. The Vatican in 2012 cracked down on Schueller, stripping him of the right to use the title monsignor and saying he was also no longer a “Chaplain of His Holiness”.

Schueller, a former deputy to Vienna archbishop Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, had been given the honorary title in his capacity as head of the Austrian branch of the Catholic charity group Caritas. READ MORE

All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
