Francis and the Pharisees: At Jews’ behest, Vatican Conference re-evaluates Christ’s Enemies
Don’t you hate it when that happens? Day in and day out you try to excoriate the last remaining people attempting to be Catholic in your Modernist sect by deriding them as rigid Pharisees who know nothing of the mercy of God, and then the real Pharisees complain that this makes them look bad.
That is the situation Jorge Bergoglio — “Pope” Francis — has gotten himself into after years of preaching against conservatives in his sect, accusing them of being hypocrites like the Pharisees:
- “Jewish leaders warn Pope off anti-Semitic ‘Pharisee’ stereotype”
- “Pope at Santa Marta: There are Pharisees in the Church today like in the time of Jesus”
With regard to the question of adultery in particular, Francis has tried to paint those who insist on its absolute prohibition (like Jesus Christ, we might add; see Mt 5:27-28; 19:3-9) as legalistic Pharisees who rigidly attach themselves to “rules” and “laws”, as though we were talking about a mere ceremonial law or human convention and not the Divine Law revealed to man (see Ex 20:14; Deut 5:18; Mk 10:19).
