Pope Francis is not being genuine when he is BLAMING the synod bishops for their opposition to ‘opening the doors’ for gays.
Despite his confounding ‘why am I to judge’ remark, Pope Francis, a conservative at heart, has a well documented 100% track-record of opposing anything to do with LGBT inclusion. He even refused to allow the French to send a gay Ambassador to the Vatican.
IF the Synod bishops had opened the doors to gays the pope would have NIXED IT!
He is being very disingenuous even by his standards!
The pope does NOT need synodical approval to do whatever he wants. He issued his edicts on the new Catholic marriage annulment standards without any consultations with a synod, cardinals or bishops. That is the beauty of being a pope as opposed to a President or Prime Minister. Absolute, unfettered, dictatorial, autocratic powers. Plus he can’t be voted out of office, impeached or does he have term-limits.
Pope Francis can just thumb his nose at this synod on families.
But he will NOT. Despite his posturing this is what he too wanted.
He can prove me wrong. He can go against the bishops. Other popes have.
