Hi, guys —
I am having a very difficult time understanding Pope Francis stance with most modern day issues.
I always tell my grandchildren that man may change his laws, but God's laws never change. Pope Francis seems to steer away from the Word that Jesus taught us and what is in the Bible and is accepting of these modern day ways which aren't supported by our faith.
Now in his book he supports Black Lives Matter and comes down on the people who peacefully protest their constitutional rights, especially:
- the ability to work
- keep their business from going under and supporting their families to have sufficient food on the table, and
- the ability to pay their bills.
I, and so many others, find his behavior very concerning. I will never accept anything different than the Word and what Jesus has taught us. We can be kind and loving to all people, but not agree with their way of life, because that is between them and God. I do agree there are bad policemen, but I do believe the majority of them are good and caring. I see it every day.
Unfortunately, there are bad apples in every aspect and vocation of life, including the priesthood. I'm taught to pray for these people, because we are all human. I could go on, but I believe you know where I am coming from with my comments. The bottom line is:
- How can the Leader of our Church act as he does?
