Bergoglio rattles the cage again…
In Message to ‘LGBTQ Catholics’,
Francis confirms Aberrosexuals in their ‘Identity’
On May 1, 2022, the Jesuit hellboy Rev. James Martin launched a new web site called “Outreach”. It is to serve as a resource for so-called “LGBTQ Catholics”, where each letter in the acronym stands for a different kind of sexual aberration. It’s the alphabetical version of the perverts’ rainbow, one might say.
As the adherents of this infernal ideology seek to gain social acceptance for ever more perversions, the alphabet string increases accordingly, which is why what started out as LGBT has since expanded to at least LGBTQi+ and who knows what else at this point — this is not the type of thing you want to look up.
Today, May 9, “Fr.” Martin excitedly announced that his boss, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”), responded to three questions he had been sent regarding those mythical “LGBTQ Catholics”, as follows:
Outreach: What would you say is the most important thing for LGBT people to know about God?
Pope Francis: God is Father and he does not disown any of his children. And “the style” of God is “closeness, mercy and tenderness.” Along this path you will find God.
Outreach: What would you like LGBT people to know about the church?
Pope Francis: I would like for them to read the book of the Acts of the Apostles. There they will find the image of the living church.
Outreach: What do you say to an LGBT Catholic who has experienced rejection from the church?
Pope Francis: I would have them recognize it not as “the rejection of the church,” but instead of “people in the church.” The church is a mother and calls together all her children. Take for example the parable of those invited to the feast: “the just, the sinners, the rich and the poor, etc.” [Matthew 22:1-15; Luke 14:15-24]. A “selective” church, one of “pure blood,” is not Holy Mother Church, but rather a sect.

The complete text of Francis’ actual letter, in Spanish and English, along with a scanned copy of his chicken scratch, can be found at the Outreach site. Not surprisingly, Vatican News has already published a post celebrating this latest “papal” contribution.
Let’s go ahead now and take Bergoglio’s misleading remarks apart.
So Francis says: “God is Father and he does not disown any of his children.” That is true if we understand “his children” to mean His adopted sons in Jesus Christ. After all, St. Paul says: “And if sons, heirs also; heirs indeed of God, and joint heirs with Christ” (Rom 8:17a). However, the same Apostle adds: “Yet so, if we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him” (Rom 8:17b).
There is a condition, then, to remaining a child of God, and that is that we be in the state of sanctifying grace, for it is this grace that makes us His adopted children. If we want to go to Heaven, therefore, and receive the promised inheritance of eternal life, we must persevere unto the end in that state of grace: “But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved” (Mt 24:13). This St. Paul affirms also in one of his letters to St. Timothy: “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us” (2 Tim 2:12).
In short: As long as we are children of God, God will not disown us. However, since this divine adoption is essentially tied to the state of sanctifying grace, we can very easily cease to be His children, namely, by a single mortal sin. If we are so unhappy as to lose the state of grace, we are no longer children of God and return to what we were before justification, namely, “children of wrath, even as the rest” (Eph 2:3). This is the part Francis doesn’t say. He is a Naturalist, and so for him anyone is a child of God by nature alone, apart from God’s grace. Thus his remarks to souls who are steeped in the vilest sins of the flesh is doubly misleading and doubly harmful to them: First he assures them, falsely, that they are the children of God, when in fact they are in mortal sin; secondly, he assures them, likewise falsely, that this divine adoption cannot ever be lost.
Francis’ claim that God loves sexual perverts as they are isn’t new. He said it back in 2020, and in 2018 he had told Juan Carlos Crux, a prominent clergy sex abuse victim who had become a sodomite: “Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like that and he loves you like that and I do not care. The Pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are” (source).
Blasphemy on top of heresy, that is Francis’ style!
The false pope continues: “And ‘the style’ of God is ‘closeness, mercy and tenderness’.” Without making clear exactly what he means, closeness and tenderness are not concepts people steeped in impurity should be encouraged to focus on. While it is perfectly fine to assure sinners of God’s mercy, this mercy comes at a price, and that price is supernatural contrition and the willingness to abandon sin — with God’s help, of course. Clearly, Francis saw no need to spell out such “minor details.”
Next, Bergoglio’s remark that “Along this path you will find God” isn’t terribly meaningful. In fact, he hasn’t really said anything concrete they are to do or stop doing. Ask ten sodomites about what these words mean, and chances are you will get as many answers, perhaps even more. That’s how Francis likes it.
Next, Francis says that he wants “LGBTQ people” to read the Acts of the Apostles. There is nothing wrong with that, but it’s also not clear why they should focus on that book in particular. Certainly, he says that in it “they will find the image of the living church”, but how are they to understand the divine text? For, as the Ethiopian eunuch said to St. Philip in these very Acts, reading the Scriptures is one thing, understanding them is another: “And Philip, as he ran up, heard him reading the prophet Isaias, and asked, Canst thou understand what thou art reading? How could I, said he, without someone to guide me? And he entreated Philip to come up and sit beside him” (Acts 8:30-31; Knox translation). Perhaps St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians would have been a better recommendation for those living in habitual mortal sin.
Lest anyone mistake his oh-so “merciful” approach for a call to conversion, Francis then doubles down: “The church is a mother and calls together all her children. Take for example the parable of those invited to the feast: ‘the just, the sinners, the rich and the poor, etc.’ [Matthew 22:1-15; Luke 14:15-24].”
Now Francis himself did not add these Scripture references — James Martin, the editor, did that, as is evident from the full transcript and scan of the original letter, as published. This is significant because of course it turns out that whereas Francis only mentions that not merely “the just” but also “the sinners” are invited to the wedding feast, the full parable told by our Lord contains a message that is entirely at odds with what the fake pope is trying to communicate here, namely:
And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests. And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment. And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent. Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
What do you know! Francis says the Church “calls together all her children”, and that includes the sinners as much as the saints. Indeed she does. Being in mortal sin, per se, does not expel one from the Catholic Church, after all. However, everyone in the Church, the greatest saint as much as the greatest sinner, has the divinely-given mandate to become holy. Each and every one must sanctify his soul, and that means for the sinner that he must repent of his sins and attain to the wedding garment of sanctifying grace (see Acts 2:38). And it means for the saint that he must take care not to lose this wedding garment (see 1 Cor 10:12) and persevere to the end (see Mt 25:1-13). All Catholics, therefore, are called to the same holiness (not to the same degree but to the same kind), and we must “with fear and trembling work out [our] salvation” (Phil 2:12).
Francis goes on: “A ‘selective’ church, one of ‘pure blood,’ is not Holy Mother Church, but rather a sect.” This would be the first time that Francis is worried about “sects.” Usually he calls them “Christian churches or other ecclesial communities not in full communion with the Catholic Church” and has no problem with them. In fact, he declares them to be part of the one and only Mystical Body of Christ, sends them greetings, and has no problem even visiting their churches:
- Francis: Catholics and Lutherans are “the Faithful People of God” (2022)
- Francis: Lutherans are “Members of one and the same Mystical Body of Christ” as Catholics (2020)
- Address of Francis on Visit to Waldensian Temple (2015)
- Message of Francis to Methodist and Waldensian Churches for Synod Opening (2019)
Francis may demagogically and condescendingly speak of a “selective church of pure blood” that he rejects, but the fact remains that the Church is a “holy nation” (1 Pet 2:9), the Immaculate Bride of Christ, “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy, and without blemish” (Eph 5:27). Of course that does not mean that the Church is not a Church for sinners — it is, but it is for sinners who are, or wish to be, repentant, so that with God’s help they might become saints. Christ founded His holy Church in order that she would sanctify all of her members and lead them safely to salvation, and this she does chiefly through the Faith she proclaims and the sacraments she dispenses:
Certainly the loving Mother is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity, she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.
(Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis, n. 66)
Trying to shame those who are not inclined to go along with him, Francis clearly wants to establish an LGBTQ-friendly environment, where a blind eye is turned to every sexual perversion on the specious grounds of mercy and charity, to be filed away under the label “we are all sinners.”
Yes, we are all sinners, but we must have the intention of giving up our sins and conform ourselves to Christ using the royal road of the Cross (cf. Lk 14:27; Mt 11:29; Mt 5:48), and not put our sins and sinful inclinations on display and have everyone else approve of and reverence them. God’s infinite mercy is real, but it is a mercy for the repentant, not for the obstinate: “I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted” (Lk 18:14). So much for “gay pride.”
Therefore, although Francis’ pro-LGBTQXYZ approach is usually marketed as a compassionate outreach to troubled souls, we can see that the reality is quite different: This false pope is effectively confirming poor sinners in their mortal sins, and he does so under a deceptive veneer of compassion.
Not convinced? The Jesuit apostate Bergoglio has a long and troublesome history of pandering to the sodomite cause, sometimes more, sometimes less directly. His track record on this is unmistakable, and it speaks volumes. Here is a small selection:
- Francis tells Sodomite: “It does not matter … how you live your life, you do not lose your dignity”!
- Francis calls for Sodomite Civil Unions, wants Homo Couples to raise Children in Church
- Francis endorses controversial “New Ways Ministry”
- Francis tells Gay Abuse Victim: “God made you like that”
- Francis says Church must ask Forgiveness of Homosexuals
- Francis Receives Sex-Changed Woman and her “Fiancee”
- Francis and Homosexuality: A Review of Disturbing Facts
- Francis facilitates Sodomite Pseudo-Family’s Acceptance in Novus Ordo Parish
- Francis praises Nun for Building Homes for Transgenders
- Francis says he supports public Benefits for Sodomite Couples
Quite a clear picture emerges here, especially when combined with other “indiscretions” by Francis, such as his frequent and completely inappropriate use of a term that refers to a practice so vile that only those connected to the sodomite underworld would even know what it means. Likewise, his repeated and uncalled-for public use of the term “sadomasochism” (don’t look it up!) — once he managed to add it into a reflection on the Gospel passage of the Transfiguration — is as disgusting as it is revealing. Furthermore, the fact that Francis’ vestments during World Youth Day 2019 in Panama included a conspicuous pattern that is practically identical to the logo the FBI has identified as belonging to the pedophile underground, doesn’t exactly help things.
Besides, the common belief in the Vatican seems to be that homosexuality isn’t “something that really predisposes to sin”. Who knew? The truth is, of course, that, on account of the effects of original sin, even the proper sexual inclination predisposes us to sin; hence our Lord’s stern warning: “But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mt 5:28). Bergoglio isn’t terribly troubled by that, of course. After all, he is on record stating: “The least serious sins are the sins of the flesh”! Yes, he actually said that, and he didn’t even say it off the cuff; he said it during an interview that was published as a book.
What is a serious sin for him, by contrast? Why, trying to convert an Eastern Orthodox to Catholicism, for example! Now that is a “great sin against ecumenism”! Furthermore, just recently he said: “Not taking care of the climate is a sin against the gift of God that is creation”, indeed “paganism”, he asserts! Similarly, he has recently discovered “the odor of the devil”, though not in the gargantuan proliferation of Sodom and Gomorrah, but rather in… well, just guess.
From all the foregoing, we can see where “Pope” Francis’ priorities lie, and it’s clearly not with the salvation of souls. In fact, he appears to do everything in his power to ensure as many souls are harmed as possible.
On Feb. 20, 1949, Pope Pius XII explained:
The Pope has the divine promises; even in his human weaknesses, he is invincible and unshakable; he is the messenger of truth and justice, the principle of the unity of the Church; his voice denounces errors, idolatries, superstitions; he condemns iniquities; he makes charity and virtue loved.
(Pope Pius XII, Address Ancora Una Volta)
There is only one reason why that definition doesn’t fit Jorge Bergoglio: He is not, in fact, the Pope.
