Tender and transgender…
“God is Father and Mother”:
There are probably a number of people in the Vatican now who are desperately looking to see if Francis doesn’t have an OFF switch somewhere… Well, he doesn’t. On December 2nd, yet another interview was published, this time in an Italian magazine called Credere, which is the official magazine of the “Jubilee Year of Mercy” that is about to kick off in Vatican City and Novus Ordo dioceses and eparchies throughout the globe.
In this latest (but most certainly not last!) “papal” interview, Jorge Bergoglio’s “god of surprises” makes another appearance, letting the world know through its Argentinian oracle that not only is it — this “god” — three persons without being one, and not only is it identical to the Muslim Allah and the Talmudic Shekinah, it is now also a father and a mother, all at the same time!
Bergoglio announces his bizarre transgender deity and promotes some of his favorite pseudo-theological concepts, such as “inclusion”, “tenderness”, and sinners as victims (“wounded”), in the following parts of the interview (underlining added for emphasis):
–Pope Francis: …The world is in need of discovering that God is Father, that there is mercy, that cruelty isn’t the way, that condemnation isn’t the way, because the Church herself sometimes follows a hard line, she falls into the temptation of following a hard line, into the temptation of stressing only the moral rules, many people are excluded.
There, came to my mind that image of the Church as a field hospital after a battle; it’s true, how many people are wounded and destroyed! The wounded are taken care of, helped and healed, not subjected to analyses for cholesterol. I believe this is the moment of mercy. We are all sinners, we all bear interior burdens. I felt that Jesus wishes to open the door of His heart, that the Father wishes to show his deepest mercy, and therefore sends us the Spirit: to move us and to deter us. It is the year of forgiveness, the year of reconciliation. On one had we see the arms trade, the production of arms that kill, the murder of innocents in the most cruel possible way, the exploitation of persons, minors, children: a sacrilege – permit me the term – is being carried out against humanity, because man is sacred, he is the image of the living God. See, the Father says: stop and come to me.” This is what I see in the world.
–Q: According to the Bible, the place where God’s mercy dwells is the womb, the maternal insides of God, which are moved to the point of forgiving sin. Can the Jubilee of Mercy be an occasion to rediscover God’s ”maternity”? Is there also a more “feminine” aspect of the Church to appreciate?
–Pope Francis: Yes, He himself affirms it when He says in Isaiah that perhaps a mother can forget her child, a mother can also forget her child … “I, instead, will never forget you.” Here God’s maternal dimension is seen. Not everyone understands when there is talk of “God’s maternity,” it’s not a popular language – in the good sense of the word – it seems a language that is somewhat chosen. Therefore, I prefer to use [the word] tenderness, proper to a mother, the tenderness of God, tenderness born from the paternal insides. God is Father and Mother.

Ah, so God is Father and Mother, didn’t you know? Looks like Mr. Bergoglio has spent a little too much time chatting with transgender people at the Casa Santa Marta lately…
The idea of God as “mother” is by no means peculiar to Francis. His predecessor Albino Luciani, John Paul I, managed to promote the same blasphemy in his short tenure as “Pope” in the summer of 1978:
And [Israeli] Premier Begin recalls that the Jewish people once passed difficult moments and addressed the Lord complaining and saying: “You have forsaken us, you have forgotten us!” “No!”—He replied through Isaiah the Prophet—”can a mother forget her own child? But even if it should happen, God will never forget his people”.
Also we who are here have the same sentiments; we are the objects of undying love on the part of God. We know: he has always his eyes open on us, even when it seems to be dark. He is our father; even more he is our mother. He does not want to hurt us, He wants only to do good to us, to all of us. If children are ill, they have additional claim to be loved by their mother. And we too, if by chance we are sick with badness, on the wrong track, have yet another claim to be loved by the Lord.
(John Paul I, Angelus Address, Sep. 10, 1978; underlining added.)
Although it is true that Almighty God loves us and takes care of us in a way that is like to a mother (see Is 49:15; Mt 23:37), it is complete nonsense to say not only that God is our mother, but even that He is our mother more so than He is our Father. The Most Holy Trinity has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (see Mt 28:19). Our Lord Jesus Christ referred to the First Person of the Blessed Trinity as “Father”, not “Mother” (see Mk 14:36), and taught us to do the same (see Mt 6:9). And as far as mother goes, our Lord gave His own Mother — the Blessed Virgin Mary — to us to be our spiritual mother (see Jn 19:26-27).
The “feminine god”, a concept promoted by the arch-liberal “theologian” Leonardo Boff, who enjoys Francis’ admiration, is ultimately rooted in Talmudic Judaism. In fact, as sickening and bizarre as it may sound, Talmudists publicly engage in a symbolic rite of copulation with this false deity at the so-called Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. This is also attested to by Brother Nathanel, a former Jew who is now an adherent of the Eastern Orthodox sect (see video here).
As far as “tenderness” goes, Bergoglio has been promoting this bunk for a while. As the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, when a blasphemous-sacrilegious exhibition came to town in late 2004, he instructed his people to respond not with righteous anger or outrage but instead with “tenderness”, as we reported here. Against this background, it will not come as a surprise that shortly after his election as “Pope” in 2013, Francis made his Argentine buddy Victor Manuel Fernandez an “archbishop” and chose him as a theological advisor and ghost-writer for his documents. A few years back, Fernandez wrote a book entitled Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing. Clearly, this man has what it takes to write Francis’ “encyclicals” and “exhortations”! You can’t make this stuff up.
The full text of Francis’ interview in Credere is available in the original Italian at the Vatican web site, and in English translation at Zenit.org. Take a look and read it in full, and count the number of times the verb “feel” is used in its various forms. This is significant because it is a typical manifestation of Modernism — modern man no longer thinks or reasons, he feels instead, another trait associated with femininity rather than masculinity. As Pope St. Pius X remarked about the Modernists, “everything in their system is explained by inner impulses or necessities” (Encyclical Pascendi, n. 21).
The Most Holy Trinity, the only true God, is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — no one and nothing else (cf. Ex 20:2-3; Deut 6:14-15; Jos 24:15; Is 45:18; Jn 17:3; 1 Thess 1:9; 1 Jn 5:20). If Francis wants to adore a creature that claims to be divine and is female or both male and female, he needs to look no further than the Satanic Baphomet, the Talmudic Shekinah, the Greek god Hermaphroditus, the Shinto goddess Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto, or any number pagan of idols the wickedness of man, under the influence of the devil, has dreamed up since the fall of Adam and Eve.
