Pope Francis’ misguided sympathy for Judas Iscariot

Bergoglio earlier this week delivered a sermon at Casa Santa Marta in which he called Judas Iscariot a poor, repentant man, victimized and driven to suicide by unmerciful lovers of the law. This stunning attempt to rehabilitate Judas Iscariot, the greatest, most wicked traitor in history and despairing self-murderer, is beyond unprecedented. It reeks of supernatural evil.

They don’t know any better.

Typical Doug Wilson bullshit. Excuse women; blame men

Dalrock

Doug Wilson explains why the pro life movement objects to passing laws which would punish mothers who abort their children along with the abortionists who assist them in doing so.  His claim is that women who get abortions don’t know that abortion involves killing an unborn child, but abortionists do:

We are dealing with millions of cases. It is the view of politically active pro-lifers that the penalties should fall on those who know what they are doing. Medically trained doctors know exactly what they are doing. The ghouls at Planned Parenthood know exactly what they have been selling.

And the view about the mothers, taken as a class, is that they have been fraudulently manipulated into a form of negligent manslaughter. That kind of problem is best answered with information — ultrasounds and more. This is why pro-lifers for decades have offered support, information, care, and medical services…

The Onion on a closed canon. Wait, what?

Coffee & Mustard

Somehow, The Onion (!!!) has a better grasp on the sufficiency of Scripture and a closed cannon better than 95% of mainline Protestantism, including many in Calvinistic circles.

Says them, emphasis mine:

“God has granted no interviews, made no public appearances, and kept entirely to Himself for what seems like ages, and yet it’s fair to say that no other author has been quite so influential,” said noted critic and conference attendee James Wood, observing that while the fiercely private immortal being has only one book to His credit, He remains among the world’s most respected and quoted writers. “For many readers, God’s writing had a transformative impact on their lives, and countless people list His book among their favorite titles. But for reasons that we can only speculate about, God has chosen to stay out of the limelight and let His words speak for themselves. Perhaps it is God’s…

To Christians who whine about Trump’s moral character and lack of real faith

So what?

Moses was a murderer; David was an adulterer; Samson was a fornicator.

But God saw fit to use such unworthy vessels for His holy purposes: to lead His people Israel.

By contrast, this here is just a temporal, secular office, the United States presidency. It is not a holy calling.

And so if God can choose men who have lived ungodly, unworthy lives for holy purposes, how much more can a mixed group of Christians and unbelievers together decide, if they please, to choose a man who has lived an ungodly, unworthy life for a secular, temporal endeavour, the United States presidency?

Stop throwing pissy, sissy, hissy fits.

Pope Francis’ First Social Media Prayer Focuses on ‘Interfaith Unity’ With Buddhists, Muslims

{Sigh}

Pope Francis shared his first monthly prayer intention on social media Wednesday, with the focus of the prayer being on “interfaith unity.”

The pope began his brief video, which was broadcast on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, by suggesting that because the majority of the world’s inhabitants identify with some religion, this “should lead to a dialogue among religions. We should not stop praying for it and collaborating with those who think differently.”

“Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God,” Pope Francis continued in his minute-and-a-half video.

No.
