The stuff people will believe that this Pope has said is astounding.

Someone posted this heresy on FB and the comments following ranged from "Finally a Pope I can believe in!" to "I love this Pope!" to "I am pleased with the direction he is going" to "He is special!"

"We" are fully adrift now. "We" cannot be trusted to recognize what is true and distinguish it from damnable falsehood anymore.

Pathetic!!!

Its message is taken from this rubbish piece circulated by the Diversity Chronicle ...

While some traditionalists and conservative reactionaries on the far right have decried these efforts, they have delighted progressives around the world.

The Third Vatican Council concluded today with Pope Francis announcing that Catholicism is now a “modern and reasonable religion, which has undergone evolutionary changes. The time has come to abandon all intolerance. We must recognize that religious truth evolves and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine. Through acts of love and charity the atheist acknowledges God as well, and redeems his own soul, becoming an active participant in the redemption of humanity.”

“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God” Pope Francis declared.

In a speech that shocked many, the Pope claimed “All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

@ThirstyMan

Has there ever been a Third Vatican Council ??? Sounds like a figment of someone's imagination.

Sounded fishy to me, but I'm not Catholic and don't know. I can't help but notice how frivolously this Pope's identity is being compromised by the gender change community.
