Francis: European Union On Christmas "Like In National-Socialist Dictatorship"

We cannot condemn Paris Archbishop Aupetit, Francis said at the December 6 presser during his flight from Athens to Rome.

On Thursday, Francis accepted Aupetit's resignation following reports of an “ambiguous” relationship with a woman. Now he asked, “What did Aupetit do that was so bad in order to give his resignation? Answer me.”

Francis commented that he didn't accepted Aupetit’s resignation “on the altar of truth, but on the altar of hypocrisy,” adding that “If we do not know, we cannot condemn. Who knows? Ugly, no?”

There was a violation of the sixth commandment yet “not totally,” he said, explaining that the accusations were about “small caresses and massages.” Francis added that "this is a sin, but it’s not among the most serious, isn't it?” and that the scandal destroyed Aupetit’s reputation, “He will no longer be able to govern.”

Francis further said that he will receive an official invitation from the Russian-Orthodox for a second meeting with Patriarch Kirill. Their first encounter was in Havana, Cuba, in 2016.

He then called a recent EU document trying to cancel Christmas and to impose more homosex ideology “anachronistic,” saying that “in history many, many dictatorships, have tried to do this; think of Napoleon, think of the Nazi dictatorship, the communist dictatorship - it's a fashion of a watered-down secularism.”

Further, Francis repeated the myth that the March 22, 2016 suicide bomb attacks in Brussels, Belgium, were prepared by "children of ghettoised migrants, not integrated." In reality, one of them went to a Catholic High School, another appeared in a Swedish documentary on the successful integration of migrants into society.

Except that more Churches were built during NS Germany than EU, whose reign has seen the destruction of countless Churches.

He is right with nazis, but when I compare his other "statements"then I should say: he is a hypocrite.

@Deacon Nick Donnelly "What affect do you think Pope Francis saying sexual sins are not the most serious have on clergy who are breaking their promises of celibacy? Especially those caught up in the James Martin lifestyle? - (pope) Bergoglio is not a pastor and does not show the mercy of Christ"

Francis effectively said is that it's no big thing if a Bishop touches a woman up. Incredible.

That's usually where he celebrates Mass... the place where his "bad back" bothers him so much he can't kneel before God but never bothers him when he's crawling around the ground kissing the shoes of African warlords or hunched over, washing the feet of criminals.

There was a violation of the sixth commandment yet "not totally," he said, explaining that the accusations were about "small caresses and massages."

Whatta slime. Not totally... Get out :P Go as Aupetit where those "small caresses and massages" were and what resulted from them. If he answers truthfully, somebody really had to wash their hands afterwards.

...and that the scandal destroyed Aupetit’s reputation, "He will no longer be able to govern."

That never bothered Francis when it happened to Cardinal Pell who was, in fact, wrongly accused and innocent.

The same Francis who constantly condemns rules and precepts, and also condemns excluding people, issued a mandate for Vatican City that only people with a so-called “Green Pass” may enter. Got it.

When a cleric commits a sin against the sixth commandment, he is also committing one against the second commandment, due to the promise he made. When it becomes publicly known, it (used to, perhaps) brings scandal, which is a species of sin against the fifth commandment. All of this sounds serious to me.
