Pope Francis Criticizes Bishops who are Against Sodomy (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 236)

Pope Francis criticizes bishops who favor laws against sodomy in Africa, saying these bishops need to be converted. Sodomy is a grievous sin and is unnatural and perverse. There is no way it can be accepted or justified. As to anti-sodomy laws, they are there for the protection of society.


The Pope, who favors LGBT, is in effect favoring sodomy as well. He says God loves us as we are. Yes, but God does not condone willful sinful behavior. God wants us to repent and change, to be not who we are now but who God intends for us to be. The Pope also talks about each one’s dignity. Yes, but there is nothing dignified about the perverse and unnatural act of sodomy.


Conversion? It is you, Pope Francis, who needs it.


Pope Francis is the one who needs to convert and recognize the good that comes from anti-sodomy laws


A theologian told LifeSite that 'while not all sins should be made into crimes, Christian nations have generally treated homosexual activity as something harmful to society, which therefore needed to be declared illegal.'

In a new interview conducted with the Associated Press, Pope Francis has criticized bishops who seek to maintain laws against sodomy in countries of Africa. “These bishops have to have a process of conversion,” Francis declared, calling for “tenderness, please, as God has for each one of us.”


Going further, the 86-year-old former Archbishop of Buenos Aires called any laws which criminalize sodomy “unjust,” adding that the Catholic Church must be involved in ending such laws. “It must do this. It must do this,” he stated.


It is clear from his remarks Francis was referring to acts of sodomy rather than the inclination towards such acts. The Church has always taught that while homosexual sexual acts are gravely sinful, the inclination of same-sex attraction is not sinful. It is an objectively disordered inclination of course, but not sinful unless acted upon.


Yet Francis seems confused about this reality as he said to AP: “Being homosexual is not a crime. It’s not a crime. Yes, but it’s a sin. Fine, but first let’s distinguish between a sin and a crime.”


Being homosexual – in the sense that you experience same-sex attraction is not a sin! Acting on that inclination, by engaging in homosexual sexual relations, is a sin, and in some countries it is indeed a crime.
