Skip to comments.Pope Francis chooses pro-LGBT priest to guide Lent retreat who holds Jesus didn’t ‘establish rules’

Pope Francis has selected a Portuguese priest-poet to preach at his 2018 Lenten retreat who is an open promoter of the critical theology of a Spanish nun who defends the legalization of abortion and government recognition of homosexual marriage and adoptions.
Father José Tolentino Calaça de Mendonça, vice rector of the Catholic University of Lisbon, wrote the introduction to the Portuguese translation of Feminist Theology in History, by Teresa Forcades, whom the BBC calls Europes most radical nun.
When the Portuguese translation of the book was published in 2013 with Tolentino de Mendonças introduction, Forcades had well-established herself as an advocate for legalized abortion and the creation of homosexual marriage. In the same year she issued a video tribute to the Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, who was then dying of cancer.
Tolentino de Mendonça compares Forcades to Hildegard of Bingham, and says her theology is expressed in a form that is symbolic, open, and sensitive about addressing the real as opposed to the Churchs traditional way of speaking in clear, non-metaphorical terms, which he calls the triumphal univocal grammars that we know.

He’s not a Pope, he’s a poop.
Well, he’s consistent.
Why would a person not say that Francis has excommunicated himself latae sententiae, and is therefore no longer the pope?
I’ll ask again, is there any point at which the ImPopester will have gone too far?

Well, of course he did. What else do you expect?
As a side note, wouldn’t this be a great headline for tomorrow’s news: “Benedict says he’s feeling much better now, and so will resume his duties as Pope.”
Yes. We are seeing a popery run by a political action committee. The Pope himself seems to have abdicated the Seat of Peter, recklessly losing the poorly catechized to an imposter of the faith. Tragic time.
I am not Catholic, but I want to ask: shouldn’t a pope, or maybe a bishop somewhere down the line, discipline clergy and religious who advocate the exact opposite of Catholic teaching? I am figuring that would be normal, but we don’t seem to have a normal pope here and, from what I have read, there are plenty of bishops who are not what you would normally expect either.
If he is not the false prophet, he is very likely setting the stage for one.
Probably because: Prima Sedes a nemine judicatur.
Yeshua “didn’t establish rules”.
Everyone uses the cases where Yeshua showed sympathy and compassion to a sinner. Yet they ignore how they all ended, as when Yeshua said (in the case of the young woman caught in adultery (John 8 :3-11): “He told them that the one who was without sin should throw the first stone. One by one, the condemning crowd left. Then Jesus told the woman, Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.
Go and sin no more.
Yeshua’s Love, Compassion and Sympathy did not cause him to suggest: O.K. your still a good person, just keep doing what you’re doing. More than once Yeshua said he did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.
I think Fr. Guido Sarducci would be more authentically faithful to Catholic teaching than this Pope.
I seem to remember Jesus saying something about Him coming to fulfill the LAW.
Yeah, or whatever.
What they heck(not my first choice) is going on?
I yearn for John Paul so much these days!
Prayers up for Holy Mother Church.
Is it at Bohemian Grove?
It sure seems that the pope and the Catholic Church are going liberal more and more, doesn’t it?
And they seem particularly interested in being open to homosexuality.
It may be just a matter of time before the church officially recognizes and endorses homosexual marriage.
He wrote some of the best encyclicals in the entire history of the Church.
He knew his main responsibility was to feed the sheep of God.
He visited every continent, except Antarctica, more than any other pope and young people responded. Until Francis, men entering seminaries were on the upswing.
After the devastation created by the libs and their "spirit of Vatican II," John Paul cleaned things up and righted the ship.
We now have Hurricane Francis.
Think of it as if America had Hillary been forced upon us through an illegal election.
That is where we in the Church are right now.
We are just praying that the hurricane does not devastate us completely.
The Church is the Body of Christ.
Like when a cancer enters the body - at some point it will be excised.
