At this point, I don't understand how anyone can continue to hold the delusion that Pope Francis is being "taken out of context" by the Main Stream Media. We've had multiple interviews with Eugenio Scalfari, the most recent of which caused an uproar when it was reported that Francis denied the existence of Hell - a basic dogma of the Church, one that must be believed in order to be saved.
Today, faithful Catholics all throughout the world recoiled in horror at yet another interview being released where the Pope goes completely off the rails, blurring distinctions, and (as far as the public is concerned) going as far as condoning the homosexual lifestyle.
In the Times' article, Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse, is reported to have spoken with the pope about his homosexuality:
"He told me: 'Juan Carlos, I don't care about you being gay. God made you that way and loves you as you are and I don't mind. The pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are.' "
When asked for a comment, the Vatican Press Office stated:
"We don't normally comment on the pope's private conversations."
Despite the fact, that Francis has been presented with the Correctio Filialis which essentially states that the Pope has at least allowed heresy to spread like a cancer throughout the Church, and despite the famous statement in 2013 in regards to homosexuality "who am I to judge?" it seems clear that the Pope is using these private interactions with people in an effort to move the Church in a more progressive direction, without the need for Synods, Encyclicals, or Ex-Cathedra Pronouncements.
For those of you, who still believe that the pope has been mis-quoted, I give you some words of wisdom from Steve Skojec from 1Peter5.com
It amazes me how many people are like, "WELL ACKSHUALLY, WE DON'T KNOW FRANCIS SAID GOD MADE THAT GUY GAY..."— Steve Skojec (@SteveSkojec) May 22, 2018
