Hypocrisy Pure: Cardinal Promotes Practised Homosexuality
He wants the Church to proclaim the "fullness of its teaching" while giving a "witness of sustained inclusion in its pastoral practice” [= denying the fullness of doctrine].
McElroy contradicts the fact that all sexual acts outside of marriage are grave sin by suggesting that the Church has "a hierarchy of truths" and that sexual acts do "not lie at the heart of this hierarchy." But they do.
Contrary to the truth, McElroy complains that in "pastoral practice" we have placed mortal sin "at the centre of our structures of exclusion from the Eucharist." In reality, the exclusion of mortal sinners is not a "pastoral practice" but is based on revelation. McElroy ignores this, even though he is a "cardinal".
Speaking like the devil, he calls it “a demonic mystery” why "people" [= the Bible] have “a profound and visceral animus” toward homosexual immorality while the Church’s primary witness in the face of "this bigotry" [sic!] must be "one of embrace.”
McElroy doesn’t accept the distinction between orientation [= temptation] and activity [= fornication] and doesn't like the fact that this distinction divides the homosex "community" into those who abstain from sin and those who do not. For him, sinning and not sinning is therefore the same thing.
"The loving outreach of God, must be the heart, soul, face and substance of the church’s stance and pastoral action” - he insists while the Francis Group instantly eliminates anyone who does not unconditionally toe their party line.
