Most recently, Christ was dragged into whatever "scandalous, impure and threatening" designs Francis has on the family. There is no sin so foul that Christ cannot make fair by a miracle!
When Francis wants to erase heresy and pursue his pan-Christian fantasy, why he says it's really the Holy Spirit at work, not Francis.
And then of course, there's always the "God of Surprises" to cover whatever crackbrain ideas he wants to foist upon his poor, suffering sheep.
We are told to do God's will.
Pope Francis seems to have it backwards. God is always doing Francis' will.
Although it does not, perhaps, apply exactly, the Bear always thinks of this when Pope Francis pulls this trick:
Amen I say to you, that all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and the blasphemies wherewith they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, shall never have forgiveness, but shall be guilty of an everlasting sin. (Mark 3:28-29)Of course, you might say, well, he's the Pope, and when he says God is a God of Surprises, Christ changes moral law on a whim, and the Holy Spirit doesn't care about dogma anymore, then that's the way it is.
Except it isn't. The Catholic God (you know, the one Francis doesn't believe in), is not some mad horror from H.P. Lovecraft. He does not change. The Book of Hebrews says, "Jesus Christ, yesterday, and to day; and the same for ever."
We have a Pope, not an Oracle. The Bear is sorry to presume to teach Pope Francis how to be Pope, but the job description is not "utter frequent cryptic statements that can only alarm and discourage the faithful, while maintaining for yourself plausible deniability by refusing to communicate clearly."
God is not mocked. The Bear shudders every time Francis casually invokes God for one of his own novelties or horrors.
