Huff Post On The Pope’s Visit: Bisexual God And Abortion

I’d ask if you were shocked by that headline, but, if you have paid attention to the Huffington Post for any amount of time, you are probably not even surprised, much less shocked

Pope Should Start “Spiritual Renewal” with Bisexual God

On Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI asked the crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square to pray that his first visit to the United States as pontiff this week would “be a time of spiritual renewal for all Americans.” Surely spiritual renewal would be beneficial to all of us — not least the pope and his Church.

Benedict’s visit is an appropriate time for American Catholics to call upon him to recognize that spiritual renewal, like charity, begins at home. The pope must take action to revive a Church in desperate need of revolutionary renewal by pushing significant reform in the area of its largest failings: policies concerning women and sex.

I should mention that I am not Catholic, but, I know plenty, and the Church has made great strides, according to what I have read and what my friends have told me, in the treatment of women, and continue to do so.

Funny how those on the Left who tee off on the Catholic church for this, and, quite frankly, just because they are anti-Christianity/Catholocism/Judeism, have no problem with the way women are treated by Islam.

 Perhaps even more disturbing is the homily Cardinal Ratzinger gave on the day before the convening of the conclave that selected him as pope. He denounced a “dictatorship of relativism” that, he contended, threatens to undermine the fundamental teachings of Christianity. What Benedict XVI and other anti-progressive Catholics fail to realize is that the current teachings of the Church on a host of interrelated issues — women priests, clerical celibacy, birth control, abortion, homosexuality, and, most basic of all, the sex of God — are themselves the result of the Church at various times in the past having been, in Ratzinger’s words the day before he became pope, “tossed and swept along by every wind of teaching” to conform to the practices and prejudices of societies now long gone.

I think it is laid out in the Bible that way.

….The ban on women priests also emanates from Paul’s reliance on Genesis and from the Early Church Fathers’ rejection of the role of women around Jesus and particularly the centrality of Mary Magdalene as one equal to St. Peter.

For those secular lefties out there who know nothing of the Bible, Genesis happens to be the first book of the Bible. I reckon that what it says is rather important to those who follow it.

The Church’s opposition to birth control and to abortion even early in pregnancy is largely an outgrowth of its all-male composition and those males’ attempts to degrade women’s physical powers by asserting that women and the intercourse into which they putatively tempt men are necessary evils (“It is well for a man not to touch a woman,” Paul instructed the Christians of Corinth), the only purpose of which is procreation. The condemnation of homosexuals is based entirely on Old Testament rules established by men who feared anything that placed in question their insistence on the polarity of the sexes.

As to the first, they have to do with the sanctity of life, as laid out in the bible, not any desire to control women. Robert S. McElvaine should really take some sort of meds to lower his estrogen levels. As to the second, perhaps Robert should read the Koran, and maybe do a google search with the terms “gay homosexual hang” and see what that garners him before he goes to buy a new purse.

During the second week of his papacy in 1978, John Paul I sensibly declared that God “is a Mother as well as a Father.” Eighteen days later John Paul I was dead, only 33 days after his election. Despite that unfortunate example and his own stance against desperately needed reform, Benedict XVI owes it to Catholics to take the bold steps needed to break the hold on the Church of earlier flings with relativism and to bring the institution he heads into line both with the needs of the modern world and with the teachings of Jesus.

God is God. Period. I am not surprised that a secular progressive doesn’t get what John Paul I said. Will McElvaine comment on Islam being still stuck in 632? I’ll be awaiting his  post, or heck, anyone’s post at the Huffington Post on the evils of Islam.

    funny how some on the right…….
    have to constantly demonize others in order to make themselves appear acceptable.
    Teach do you believe that the Bible is the Word of God and that everything in it is true ?
    How old do you think the Earth is ? More than or less than say 10,000 years ?

    No, I am not surprised. I don’t even read the Huffington whatever. I don’t like to clutter my mind with negativity. lol. Why do they ask these questions when they don’t even believe in God? They certainly do not know Him. Not that I know Him better! Not at all. I Do, however, know what He is NOT! Thanks for the post. 😉

  3. Report from Iraq – American Style…

    Michael Yon has an article published in the WSJ’s Opinion Journal. If we had an American media interested in winning this global war, he would seem to be just another reporter. Not so…They can’t hold a candle to his reporting ……

    “I love you Rosemary!”
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 reads “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”
    In Comrade Ryan’s socialist mind, liberals, defeatocrats and left-wing moonbats are never wrong! The Clintons and Obamas think the SAME way, eh?
