President Obama will apparently test just how far Pope Francis’ notorious tolerance will go by inviting a rogue’s gallery of people opposed to Catholic teaching to greet the pontiff at the White House during his visit next week.In a stunning show of political indecorum, Obama has invited a series of individuals who publicly flout Catholic teaching, including a pro-abortion religious sister, a transgender woman and the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, along with at least two Catholic gay activists.http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/09/16/white-house-invites-trio-catholic-dissenters-greet-pope-francis/
Obama s run just keeps getting richer and richer. Not that I am a fan of this Pope but it seems as if this Government is intentionally trying to provoke God anyway possible.
I too, am no fan of Rome. Though, if anyone is paying attention to what is happening in Rome, I think these are the exactly the people that this Pope wants to meet. I believe he and the President are on the same page.He has been giving hints:http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/03/05/pope-civil-unions/6079507/https://www.care2.com/causes/pope-says-american-nuns-too-focused-on-poor-not-enough-on-gay-bashing.htmlhttp://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/16/opinion/parsing-pope-francis-words-on-abortion.html?_r=0http://www.lifenews.com/2015/09/16/obama-invites-pro-abortion-nun-to-greet-pro-life-pope-francis-during-his-visit/Interesting times we are living in.
Hope Obama included a Christian in his line-up - someone who could articulate the real gospel to the Pope!
I have not heard of that and am not convinced his interests lay in that area. With this Pope, we are seeing a closer convergence with the President, not a distancing.
To believe the Pope was not complicit in the meeting at the WH with these folks would be incredibly naive. The RC church is wayyyy too powerful to be caught by surprise by such a thing, or to not agree to it beforehand. In other words if the Vatican did not want it to happen it would not happen.
Yes, they are closer than many people think plus the Jesuits are ever present. Should not be naive about them, either.
Matthew Henry believed the papacy system was/is the Beast and I am beginning to think he may have been correct.
The Papacy and the entire worldwide "religious system" that stands against the true gospel of grace and Jesus Christ.
