Cardinal Accuses Bishops of Error

The homosex "blessing" made up by the Belgian bishops is wrongheaded, Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze, former Liturgy Prefect, told InsideTheVatican.com (September 26).

He called this error "an error" on the part of the bishops. Arinze reminds that Scripture identifies homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity (Gen 19:1-29; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10), and quotes the Catechism that Tradition “has always declared that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”

Bishops should bless properly married unions of one man and one woman, "not homosexual couples."

“Human beings have no power to change the order established by God the Creator,” he stressed adding that the Church’s mission “includes calling people to repentance, sacrifice, chastity and perfection.”

God is in control and He is allowing this circus to continue to separate the chaff from the wheat. Those that think they are "winning" are really losing. Losing their souls. Pray for them.

But that goes for all of us. Separating the sheep from the goats and the wheat from the chaff.

An error? I'd call it spitting into the Face of God

In a interview once, he spoke of how he was suppose to be the Pope. I guess the good Cardinals wanted him. And the evil as they usually did, destroyed that idea. Someone said, it was twice he was suppose to be Pope. What does that mean? I guess more suppressing of the good.

Cheers for Cardinal Arinze. UNfortunatly, he is another Cardinal very aged. Younger Bishops/Cardinals might be willing to brush off his comments as those of an old man. CArdinal Eijk is not old, and has come out condemning the Beligian bishops. I wish the Polish bishops, Italians and others, and in the USA would do likewise.
