(Pope Francis) while acknowledging that (the Archbishop of Parish [Archbishop]) Aupetit may have partially violated the sixth commandment (regarding sexual morality), Francis also insisted that “the sins of the flesh aren’t the most serious sins” and underlined that we’re all sinners, including St. Peter, the first pope.
Where do we start? Well, as I have often mention, I could not fathom how so many bishops cut so much slack to priests who not only were unfaithful to the 6th Commandment (but also a promise made before God and the Church) but even worse, in perverted, abusive ways toward minors whom they corrupted, and yet showed more compassion to the priests than their victims or possible future victims. There is a callousness about the seriousness of mortal sins, even those in the wrong opinion of bishops, to include this pope, includes sins of the flesh.
And there you have it. This mentality is of "coloring book, social warrior Catholics" of the 1960's and 70's who see sins of the flesh as nothing compared to the mistreatment of the poor and marginalized, those on the peripheries of society and the Church. Never mind, that sexual exploitation and the corruption of minors is very much a sin against social and personal morality!
Pope Francis' off the cuff remarks have consistently been muddled and confusing, making many to wonder if there aren't some cognitive or intellectual disorders going on. Could it be dementia?
Even his written documents create the same concerns, especially is most recent document undoing the liturgical papacy of his predecessor, Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI. Did Pope Francis even think about the ramifications for papal magisteriums for one pope to undo what another pope instituted.
And even more stunning is that bishops are implementing Pope Francis' motu proprio with gusto whereas with Pope Benedict's there was little or no concern for promoting it or supervising it!
