“Pope” Francis: ‘Dialogue means Renouncing the Claim that our Ideas and Traditions Alone are Valid or Absolute’
When someone like Jorge Bergoglio presumes to instruct others on how and what to communicate, it is a given that disaster will result.
And so it has. On Jan. 23, 2014, “Pope” Francis issued his annual Message for World Communications Day. Of course, he was promoting his essentially meaningless but feel-good pet theme of a “culture of encounter”, but the penultimate paragraph in his document was rather meaningful indeed:
Effective Christian witness is not about bombarding people with religious messages, but about our willingness to be available to others “by patiently and respectfully engaging their questions and their doubts as they advance in their search for the truth and the meaning of human existence” (BENEDICT XVI, Message for the 47th World Communications Day, 2013).
