Pope Francis Eases Catholic Doctrine

Pope Francis eases Catholic Doctrine

Pope Francis is easing Catholic doctrine, saying it’s too strict.

The Catholic church’s harsh doctrine involving divorce, gay marriage, contraception, and abortion are about to be eased up as Pope Francis is taking the route of separation between the sin and the sinner. In short, he believes that what you have done does not define what you are to a point.

The Pope is hoping to see a dramatic shift in the church, as a less strict doctrine will allow people to change with the times and remember humanity over practice. Discrimination is a principle he feels needs to stop because it’s driving people away for reasons that make little sense.

In an interview, the Argentine Pope Francis eased Catholic doctrine as he said, “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that.”

Pope Francis further explained that morals and dogma involved in the church are not the same. A balance is being sought which will show mercy to the people and avoid the church falling “like a house of cards.” He hopes to bring an air of freshness to the doctrine so it doesn’t grow stale and die in the hearts of its people, especially as the Atheist church grows so rapidly as previously reported by The Inquisitr.

The Pope stresses that the church’s position is not changing, but the idea is to keep the person in mind instead of their actions, such as contraception, abortion, and divorce. The Catholic doctrine still views those things as murder, but the people who consent to it shouldn’t be so looked down upon and practically cast out.

The easing of Catholic doctrine by Pope Francis is yet another step toward what may be a revolutionary change in what has been itself seen in a negative light for its discrimination. The people are more important to him than their homosexuality or birth control decisions, and, for that, Pope Francis is easing Catholic doctrine.

    This Pope is basically a Humanist . He doesn't even believe that homosexuality is sin. He seems to want to near mock the element of his church that have been the most faithful and supportive by portraying them as "small – minded" . They should "de-fund" this poseur.

    To easily illustrate this man's deep humanism – let me use his own statement:

    “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge him?”

    Can he judge men/women who practice bestiality and sex with family members etc. ? Because scripturally, homosexuality is actually even more condemned than sex with animals or in-laws.

    So would the Pope say … "If a person has sex with him mom and his puppy and seeks the Lord and has good will , who am I to judge him?"

    I feel Very Sorry for the faithful of that Church !

    I think that this Pope has pounded the last nails into the coffin of Catholicism for any person who was seriously considering seeking God through Catholicism.
