“It is […] important to continue the effort to immunize the general population as much as possible. This calls for a manifold commitment on the personal, political and international levels. First, on the personal level. Each of us has a responsibility to care for ourself and our health, and this translates into respect for the health of those around us. Health care is a moral obligation. Sadly, we are finding increasingly that we live in a world of strong ideological divides. Frequently people let themselves be influenced by the ideology of the moment, often bolstered by baseless information or poorly documented facts. Every ideological statement severs the bond of human reason with the objective reality of things. The pandemic, on the other hand, urges us to adopt a sort of “reality therapy” that makes us confront the problem head on and adopt suitable remedies to resolve it. Vaccines are not a magical means of healing, yet surely they represent, in addition to other treatments that need to be developed, the most reasonable solution for the prevention of the disease.”
- [[My comment: Francis’ “reality” is that he is happy to murder the baby in the womb to research and develop and test “vaccines” upon their organs ripped from them. He pretends that he is the big-man, clever, the one who has it all figured out, that murder of the least of the brethren is the way to go and that he’s just condescending enough to lead the way for us. I reject that.]]
[…] “Agendas are increasingly dictated by a mindset that rejects the natural foundations of humanity and the cultural roots that constitute the identity of many peoples. As I have stated on other occasions, I consider this a form of ideological colonization, one that leaves no room for freedom of expression and is now taking the form of the “cancel culture” invading many circles and public institutions. Under the guise of defending diversity, it ends up cancelling all sense of identity, with the risk of silencing positions that defend a respectful and balanced understanding of various sensibilities. A kind of dangerous “one-track thinking” [pensée unique] is taking shape, one constrained to deny history or, worse yet, to rewrite it in terms of present-day categories, whereas any historical situation must be interpreted in the light of a hermeneutics of that particular time, not that of today.”
- [[My comment: Francis cancelling people who want to worship God with the Ancient Rite is not consistent with his words here. He’s trolling, gaslighting. He’s monstrously tyrannical.]]
“Multilateral diplomacy is thus called to be truly inclusive, not canceling but cherishing the differences and sensibilities that have historically marked various peoples. In this way, it will regain credibility and effectiveness in facing the challenges to come, which will require humanity to join together as one great family that, starting from different viewpoints, should prove capable of finding common solutions for the good of all. This calls for reciprocal trust and willingness to dialogue; it entails “listening to one another, sharing different views, coming to agreement and walking together”.  Indeed, “dialogue is the best way to realize what ought always to be affirmed and respected apart from any ephemeral consensus”.  Nor should we overlook “the existence of certain enduring values”.  Those are not always easy to discern, but their acceptance “makes for a robust and solid social ethics. Once those fundamental values are adopted through dialogue and consensus, we realize that they rise above consensus”.  Here I wish to mention in particular the right to life, from conception to its natural end, and the right to religious freedom.”
- [[My comment: the hypocrisy here is stunning: Francis insists on murdering babies in the womb for his abortion-tainted “vaccines.” Francis insists on making hateful prejudicial remarks against those who follow Jesus, the Living-and-Absolute-Truth. Francis insists on “values”, which puts morality on the level of the perception of the subject: “I value this or that…” you know, from the perspective of a fallen human nature. “Values” are the fastest way to guillotine the Catholic Church. I reject this.]]
One response to “Pope Francis to Diplomats (Jan 10 2022)”
#1 and #4 sound awful to me. Sounds like he is willing to bend and shape the Faith to whatever the times and “modern” people call for.
