Pro-life leaders from 13 countries accuse Pope Francis of failing to uphold Church teaching

This, my friends, is deeply troubling. Do we have a Pope who refuses to uphold Catholic teaching? Or worse; one who teaches heresy? If that is so, the repercussions of this are, and will be, of enormous, unimaginable damage to the Church.

Leaders of pro-life organisations from across the world have signed a letter accusing Church leaders, including Pope Francis, of undermining their movement through ambiguous statements and actions contrary to Catholic teaching.

The letter says that over the past 50 years the pro-life movement has “relied in a particular way on the immutable teaching of the Catholic Church, which affirms the moral law with the greatest clarity.”

However, the signatories say that in recent years that teaching has increasingly been replaced by “ambiguity, and even by doctrines directly contrary to the teaching of Christ and the precepts of the natural law”.

The letter then lists the concerns of several documents and letters to Pope Francis over the past couple of years, including the Filial Appeal in September 2015, the ‘Dubia’, the Filial Correction earlier this year, and Fr Thomas Weinandy’s letter last month.

On top of these, the signatories accuse the Pope of statements and actions which “contradict the Church’s teaching on the intrinsic evil of contraceptive acts”, “contradict the Church’s teaching on the nature of marriage and the intrinsic evil of sexual acts outside the union of marriage”.

  1. After reading the well-researched and well-documented book, “The Dictator Pope,” I feel afraid for the Catholic Herald and for its anonymous “Staff Reporter.”

    In the past, in Argentina and in the Vatican, this pope has done all he could to suppress and even destroy anyone who opposes him, anyone naive enough to believe his words about “dialogue” and “speaking freely” and “mercy.”

    With this pope’s habitual behavior in mind, I believe that the Catholic Herald has been very brave in daring to publish this letter. Its signatories were even more courageous to have written it in the first place.

    Thanks for sharing this. Troubling times for the Church for sure. As far as myself, I just hang onto what the Church truly teaches. It is not that I do not care what is going on in the Church, I do and pray for it all the time. This is one of the times I feel as if the “gates of hell are prevailing against it.”

    I hold onto the promise of Jesus, that they will not win out. Even though this is all happening the Church still holds so much beauty within it. That is what I try and focus on. God Bless, SR
