Pope Francis Tells Chilean Man Who Was Raped By Catholic Priest That ‘It’s OK To Be Gay’ In Private Vatican Meeting

God loves gay people and it is fine to be homosexual, Pope Francis has reportedly said. The Pope made the remarks, which went significantly beyond his previous tolerance for homosexuality, during a meeting three weeks ago with a Chilean man who had been sexually abused by Catholic priests.

Pope Francis tells man who was sexually assaulted by Catholic priest that ‘God loves gay people and it is fine to be homosexual’ in closed-door meeting with Juan Carlos Cruz in the Vatican

EDITOR’S NOTE: Hoo boy, where oh where do I even start with this story? In the 1980’s in Chile, Juan Carlos Cruz was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted by his Catholic priest  the Rev. Fernando Karadima. Cruz was by far not the only victim of the pedophile priests at the parish of El Bosque in Santiago, and the assaults were covered up by Bishop Juan Barros, who witnessed it all. Flash-forward to 2015 when Cruz writes a letter to the pope, begging for help, and the pope does nothing. In fact, when asked about it on his trip to Chile back in February, Pope Francis denied ever receiving such a letter, and when an uproar resulted from the Chilean victims,  Francis was forced to confess that ‘grave errors’ were made by the Vatican. Hmm…but it amazingly doesn’t end there. Flash-forward to May 2018, and the Catholic priest rape victim who became homosexual after being raped, had a private meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican where Francis told him that ‘being gay is OK’, and that ‘God made you that way’. These are the words of a man who claims to be the ‘vicar of Christ‘, who believes he sits in the place of God on this Earth, according to the official Catholic catechism

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJB)

The Pope made the remarks, which went significantly beyond his previous tolerance for homosexuality, during a meeting three weeks ago with a Chilean man who had been sexually abused by Catholic priests.

Pope Francis offered a heartfelt apology to Juan Carlos Cruz, who was a victim of Chile’s most notorious abusive priest, Fernando Karadima.  Mr Cruz, who is gay, said the conversation moved on from the abuse crisis to the nature of homosexuality.

“He told me ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like that and he loves you like that and I do not care.

“The Pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are,’” Mr Cruz told El Pais, the Spanish newspaper.  The Pope’s words appeared to go further in terms of tolerance than remarks he made in 2013, when he said of homosexuals “Who am I to judge?”

Speaking to the Vatican press corps on his return to Rome from a trip to Brazil, he said gay people should not be marginalised but rather integrated into society. He was responding to questions about claims of an alleged “gay lobby” of clerics working in the heart of the Vatican.

“If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?” Pope Francis replied.

The Roman Catholic Church insists that while homosexual orientation is not sinful in itself, homosexual acts certainly are because they are “against natural law”. The Pope is not changing official Church teaching, but he is at least signalling a much more open and inclusive approach, which will upset many conservative Catholics.

The Vatican neither confirmed nor denied the comments that Francis reportedly made to Mr Cruz.

“This is not a shift in theological teaching or dogma,” said Robert Mickens, a Vatican expert and the editor of La Croix International, a Catholic publication.

“It was a pastoral response to an individual. The Pope always likes to deal with the individual.” The Pope elaborated on his ‘who am I to judge?’ comment in a recent book by an Italian expert on the Vatican.

Pope Francis accused the victims of the Chilean Catholic priests of ‘slander’ and refused to hear their complaints

The pontiff told him: “I was paraphrasing by heart the catechism of the Catholic Church where it says that these people should be treated with delicacy and not be marginalised.”

He added: “Let us not forget that God loves all his creatures and we are destined to receive his infinite love.”

Mr Cruz was one of three former sex abuse victims from Chile who came to Rome to receive an apology from Pope Francis for the years of abuse that they endured. The victims described clerical sexual abuse as “an epidemic that has destroyed thousands of lives.”

Pope Francis had initially been slow to realise the gravity of the crisis in Chile and even came to the defence of a controversial bishop linked to Father Karadima, the abusive priest.

But he performed an about-turn after Vatican investigators presented him with a 2,300-page dossier showing that sexual abuse of minors had been covered up in Chile for decades, in a pattern that has been repeated in many other countries, notably Ireland.

On Friday, Chile’s 34 bishops offered to resign en masse over the abuse scandal, an act without precedent in the history of the Catholic Church. source

Our brand new NTEB ‘Wall Witness’ Poster Series will get your end times motor running with these sure-fire conversation starters!

When our Mudflower team produced the original ‘days of Noah’ graphic for use in the bookstore as a display background for our ‘Angels & Aliens’ collection from end times author Jeffrey Mardis, people immediately started asking if we could make it available as a poster. Now that was a great idea, and hey, why stop with just one? Presenting the NTEB Wall Witness Poster Series that will remind you and your born again friends of the precious promises of God, and get the lost people in your life thinking about what’s coming to pass shortly.

“For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:22 (KJB)

We designed three posters that we are selling individually, and as a set with a discount. The first is the classic OG NTEB chaotic end times depiction from our Street Preacher gospel tracts, a design recognized around the world. The second is Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines, our ‘blessed hope’ of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. And the third one is the menacing Days of Noah giant in a boiling sea as UFOs swirl all around. Total visual impact. We are excited to present them to you, and dearly hope you will use them to witness in your home, at work, or wherever you can hang a poster.

Witnesses To The Massive 7.8 Earthquake In Turkey Remarked That ‘It Was Like The Apocalypse’ As Death Toll Now Passes 3,700 Souls And Rising

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A huge earthquake in Turkey and Syria registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale has already killed 3,700 souls, injuring countless thousands more, was like ‘watching the apocalypse’.

This week is off to a gangbusters start from a prophecy perspective, with a once in a generation earthquake rocking Turkey and Syria, open worship of Satan at the Grammys sponsored by Pfizer, as well as minor earthquakes in New York and Georgia. Russia is preparing to unleash a 500,000 soldier contingent on Ukraine, and Chinese spy balloons fly over America with impunity. Things get much hotter and it might be time for a little ’23 skidoo’, and wouldn’t that be great? In the meantime, here we are at the beginning of sorrows.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 (KJB)

One of the missionaries on our prayer list is LuAnn from Sarasota who ministers to the Muslims in Turkey. She reported this morning that “Yes thank God I’m all right.  I’m living in Istanbul and this horrendous earthquake happened in the southeast of Turkey a few hours away from me. But it is turning into quite a disaster for the nation.  Thank you for your prayers and your concern. We have been told to restock our “earthquake bag” in case we too become affected. We just learned Pastor Hakan and his wife in Anitoch went to be with the Lord , leaving behind a young son. We have so few Turkish Pastors. Tragic” Please continue to pray for LuAnn and her efforts in Turkey, that the Lord would continue to keep her safe and give her and her team much fruit for His Kingdom. And pray for the untold tens of thousands of souls devastated by this earthquake.

Major earthquake kills 3,700 in Turkey and Syria, weather hits survivors

FROM YAHOO NEWS: A huge earthquake killed more than 3,700 people across a swathe of Turkey and northwest Syria on Monday, with freezing winter weather adding to the plight of the thousands left injured or homeless and hampering efforts to find survivors.

The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians displaced by years of war. It struck before sunrise in harsh weather and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake.

In Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey, a woman speaking next to the wreckage of the seven-storey block where she lived said: “We were shaken like a cradle. There were nine of us at home. Two sons of mine are still in the rubble, I’m waiting for them.” She was nursing a broken arm and had injuries to her face.

“It was like the apocalypse,” said Abdul Salam al-Mahmoud, a Syrian in the northern town of Atareb. “It’s bitterly cold and there’s heavy rain, and people need saving.”

The earthquake was the biggest recorded worldwide by the U.S. Geological Survey since a tremor in the remote South Atlantic in August 2021.

In Turkey, the death toll stood at 2,316, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said, making it the country’s deadliest earthquake since a tremor of similar magnitude in 1999 devastated the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 2,300 people in Turkey and Syria early Monday morning. The ‘apocalypse’ quake occurred early in the morning when most people were sleeping or indoors.

The 2023 Grammys Call On Satan During Performance Of ‘Unholy’ Then Immediately Cut To A ‘Brought To You By Pfizer’ Promo, Awake Yet?

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Last night, the 2023 Grammys in 5 minutes showed you graphically how close to the end we truly are. Satan, brought to you by Pfizer. Just like we’ve been telling you.

If you were looking for a theme song wrapped in an iconic moment to truly symbolize what it means to be here on Day 1,057 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, the 2023 Grammys last night was just the ticket. You had LGBTQ+ transgenders, Satan, women in cages being beaten with whips, all while singing a song called ‘Unholy’. And if that wasn’t enough, the moment this demonic mess was done, they cut to a ‘brought to you by Pfizer’ promo, tying the two in nice and neatly together. There is nothing more you need to know about the Great Reset, the pandemic, gain of function and all the rest of that junk than that. But don’t take my word for it, watch the video below and see for yourself.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (KJB)

In 5 minutes last night, the Grammys showed you a visual production of just about everything we’ve been warning you about since it all began. How many times have you heard me tell you on the Podcast about the ‘rising spirit of Antichrist’? It rose over the Grammys last night, and broadcast to a hundred million people. How many times have you heard me expose the evils of Pfizer and Big Pharma? Pfizer sponsored that satanic moment. People, if you can’t see where we are on the end times timeline by now, if you can’t see that everything we’ve been warning you about is happening right in front of your face, then I don’t know what to tell you. Obviously we will be discussing this in detail on the Podcast today so please join us. Like we’ve always said NTEB’ers are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth regarding the end times, and last night the 2023 Grammys proved that…TO THE FIGHT!!!

2023 Grammys Go ‘Full Satan’ With Performance Of ‘Unholy’

FROM VARIETY: Sam Smith just outdid their recent “Saturday Night Live” performance with “Unholy” collaborator Kim Petras in a horror movie-inspired performance of the smash hit. Smith started the song in red leather, surround a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from “The Ring,” before cutting to Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.

Smith and Petras won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance earlier in the evening, and Petras gave an emotional speech.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” she said, to cheers and many of the musicians in the crowd giving her a standing ovation. “I just wan to thank all of the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight. Sophie, my friend who passed away two years ago, who told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for you inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”

When asked about the fiery performance backstage, Petras said it was inspired by not feeling accepted by religion.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” she said. “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.” READ MORE
