So, Pope Francis gave another long interview, this time to Reuters.
Below I include the bit about the Supreme Courts overturning of Roe v Wade and Nancy Pelosi receiving Holy Communion.
Pope Francis claims ignorance of the law and so can’t comment on that, but does say that abortion is like hiring a sicario, a hit man. But then, establishing that abortion is so very evil, he condemns anyone who would say that pro-abortion politicians like Nancy Pelosi should be denied Holy Communion, with that condemnation carrying the moniker of “non-pastoral”, which, by the way, is enough to have someone removed from ministry. That puts all priests and bishops on notice, and it’s a green light to all sinners to F*** sacramental Confession and just go to Holy Communion in mortal sin, eating and drinking their own condemnation, as Saint Paul warns, thus mocking themselves, mocking the least of the brethren in the womb, and mocking Christ Jesus.
- “Asked about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling establishing a woman’s right to have an abortion, Francis said he respected the decision but did not have enough information to speak about it from a juridical point of view. But he strongly condemned abortion, comparing it to “hiring a hit man”. The Catholic Church teaches that life begins at the moment of conception. “I ask: Is it legitimate, is it right, to eliminate a human life to resolve a problem?”
- Francis was asked about a debate in the United States over whether a Catholic politician who is personally opposed to abortion but supports others’ right to choose should be allowed to receive the sacrament of communion. House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi, for example, has been barred by the conservative archbishop of her home diocese of San Francisco from receiving it there, but is regularly given communion at a parish in Washington, D.C. Last week, she received the sacrament at a papal Mass in the Vatican. “When the Church loses its pastoral nature, when a bishop loses his pastoral nature, it causes a political problem,” the pope said. “That’s all I can say.”
That’s all you can say, is it? I wonder how that’s going to work out before Him who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. We pray for conversion: Hail Mary…

Pope Francis knows Church teaching and regurgitates it but instead of following through and calling participants in and supporters of abortion to repentance he gives “a green light to all sinners to (forget) sacramental Confession and just go to Holy Communion in mortal sin, eating and drinking their own condemnation”. Clearly, he doesn’t believe the Church’s teaching (he knows better?!), is indifferent to what happens to the flock with which he has been entrusted (he only loves himself?!) and / or hates and strives to harm the Church (he has an anti-Christ mentality?!). Whatever, it is undeniable that he pays lip service to Church teaching (he has to to remain looking like a legitimate Pope) and then surreptitiously knocks it down by rejecting its application as non-pastoral. As 007 stated a few posts back (“Papal Mass today: Pelosi …”) Pope Francis “likes to describe the Eucharist as a ‘medicine,’ but the medicine needed is Confession”. As horrible as it sounds, this Pope is playing with words to conform the Church to the world and bask in its applause while sending souls to hell.
I read somewhere that some bishops are categorized as liberal or progressive, while others are thought of as traditional or conservative. Not in a political sense, but in the manner which they guide their diocese. Which group does the bishop of San Francisco fit, and the same for the bishop of Washington DC? I wonder if that line of thought is considered when they are given their assignment.
Pope Francis might want to rethink his position since he is close to being asked a few questions by Jesus. We all know what Jesus thinks about lukewarm….
