Popes contradict each other on animals going to Heaven.

“Paradise is open to all God’s creatures.” - Bergoglio

“Paradise is open to all God’s creatures.” – Bergoglio

Pope Francis has once again made people smile and received many “likes” when he declared last week in St. Peter’s Square that all animals go to heaven.

Animal lovers who have lost a beloved pet have been consoled and appreciative.

The Pope made the remarks after he received two donkeys as early Christmas presents.

In making his remarks, the Pope said “Paradise is open to all God’s creatures.”

It’s a point of debate in religious doctrine and within people’s own hearts and minds.

According to Express, Pope Francis’ beliefs are contradictory to Pope Benedict XVI’s beliefs, who reportedly said animals “are not called to the eternal life.”

Prior to this declaration by the Pope, in 2012, the online magazine, Christianity Today posed the question “Do Pets Go to Heaven?”to an author, a professor and an animal advocate.

In the article they cited different reasons for their beliefs, including the scripture from Isaiah 11:6, which speaks of heaven:  “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.”

Pope Francis Berates Europe Over Treatment of Immigrants!

Bishop of Rome Berates Europe Over Treatment of Immigrants…

LONDON: Pope Francis Tuesday said the European Union (EU) has aged and grown tired and criticized Europe over its treatment of immigrants.

In the first papal address to the European parliament in a quarter of a century, the 77-year-old pontiff berated Europe for its treatment of immigrants, for the hordes of young unemployed, for its treatment of older people and for its failure to see clearly, the Guardian reported.

The first non-European pontiff in 1,200 years delivered a sombre and thoughtful message to more than 700 MEPs gathered in the parliament’s hemicycle in Strasbourg on France’s border with Germany.

Francis, in a speech devoted to the centrality of human dignity, declared that the EU had lost its bearings. It had become “elderly and haggard”, hostage to a uniform economic model that undermined democracy while the centrality of human rights was becoming confused with and supplanted by individualistic narcissism.

The rest of the world viewed Europe with “aloofness, mistrust and suspicion”, the pontiff said.

“We cannot allow the Mediterranean to become a vast graveyard,” Pope Francis said, in reference to the thousands of migrants who drown every year as they seek to reach southern Europe from north Africa and the Middle East.

The EU had to deal with the problem of immigration by drafting laws that protected both EU citizens and the rights of migrants. Instead, it was pursuing “policies of self-interest” that only fed the conflicts the migrants were fleeing.

“Unity does not mean uniformity,” said Francis, as he decried “uniform systems of economic power in the service of unseen empires”.

The last pope to address the European parliament was John Paul II 26 years ago who called the EU a “beacon of civilization”, the contrast on Tuesday was striking, the Guardian added.

Bergoglio Calls For ‘Structured Training’ On Engaging Muslims!

Heretic Pope Francis Calls For ‘Structured Seminary Training’ On Muslim Dialogue?!!!

“…we must work together to outlaw all forms of discrimination, intolerance and sectarian fundamentalism!??”

In a meeting with African clergy Monday, Pope Francis proposed implementing “structured training” in seminaries to help clergy more effectively engage with Muslims, particularly in countries with Muslim majorities, to “work together to outlaw all forms of discrimination, intolerance, and sectarian fundamentalism.”

Breitbart News reports:

“I think it is important that the clergy receive a more structured training in the seminary in order to carry out a constructive dialogue with Muslims, a dialogue ever more necessary to live a peaceful coexistence with them,” he said.

The Pope noted that Africa presents a special situation for Christians because Islam is “strongly majoritarian” in many places. He added that there are great differences from place to place in the “conditions of reciprocal relations” with Islam.

The Pope added that if all of us who believe in God want to serve reconciliation, justice, and peace, “we must work together to outlaw all forms of discrimination, intolerance and sectarian fundamentalism.” On the Church’s part, he said, she “must constantly bear witness to the love of God, the Creator of all men, making no distinction among religions in her social action.”

Francis concluded by commending the African bishops, many of whose churches are “small and fragile,” for remaining “brave and generous in announcing the faith.”

“Of course, there are challenges,” he said in closing, “but I encourage you to go resolutely forward, confident that the Spirit of Jesus guides you, because He ‘helps us in our weakness.’”


Justin Bieber ‘told off’ during visit to Vatican!!

Justin Bieber (PA)

The pop star Justin Bieber was reportedly reprimanded for kicking a football around the Vatican last week.

The “One Time” singer paid £16,000 for a private tour of Vatican City, taking in the Vatican museum and the papal apartments, which are not occupied by Pope Francis. But it is understood that he irritated staff when he began to kick a ball around the corridors.

The 20-year-old previously embarrassed himself on The Late Show with David Letterman when he referred to the Sistine Chapel as the “Sixteenth Chapel”.

The singer was born in Canada and raised a Christian. In the past he has said that Jesus is the “reason I am here”.

His mother, Pattie Mallette, was baptized and raised a Catholic, and her son attended a Catholic school.





This is a critical issue folks!  The 2nd nurse diagnosed yesterday with Ebola was traveling on Frontier Flight number 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas / Fort Worth International (DFW) on Monday, October 13.  Just one day before being diagnosed with Ebola.   Her flight landed at 8:16 pm Dallas time.  The nurse had flown from Dallas Fort Worth to Cleveland on Frontier flight 1142 on October 10th.  The CDC is asking all 132 passengers who flew on that flight or on the October 10th flight to call 1-800-232-4636.

October 14th travel for this airplane is not discussed.

On October 15 at approx 1:00 am MT time Frontier Airlines was notified by the CDC that the nurse had been a traveling customer on their flight.  The flight did not leave the airport that evening (Oct 13) having completed its scheduled flights for the day.   Frontier states that the plane received a thorough cleaning “per our normal procedures which is consistent with CDC guidelines prior to returning to service the next day.”

The troubling part of that comment was that it was “normal procedures”.   They did not state per the recent guidelines given to assist in the protection against Ebola.  On October 9, airline cabin cleaners went on strike over fears that they were not properly equipped and protected.   Something tells me their cleaning plan is about as effective as the nursing care protection has been thus far.

Why was this nurse who directly cared for Thomas Duncan on a plane TWO DAYS after he died?    Certainly it does not take a rocket scientist to see that the people at the highest risk are those who were in the closest proximity to this man who was infected.  We allowed this woman to “self monitor” which was accompanied by very poor judgement on her part.

I have done a lot of travel on airplanes in my previous consulting career.  I began to think of every opportunity I would have to expose others to an illness.  Here is the litany.  The CDC is looking for the travelers on the plane.  But this is so much bigger…  Click here to read the rest of the story on Stepping Stones Living…




For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. Romans  1:26-27

You’ve all heard the story of the frog in boiling water. If you drop a frog into boiling water, it immediately jumps out. However, if you put a frog in a pot of room-temperature water, and then bring the water to a boil very, very slowly, the frog will stay in the water until it dies. Timing is everything.

Like a fox carefully waiting for exactly the right moment, Pope Francis has begun to take the steps necessary to incorporate a full acceptance of homosexuality into the Catholic church. After all, if you are planning on building the One World Church, you need a wide base.

First comes “tolerance”, followed closely by “acceptance”. Then comes domination and the driving out of all dissenting thought and opinion. This is exactly the pattern Barack Obama has used to propel the LGBT to a position of prominence in America. Isn’t it amazing how less than 8% of the world’s population can drive policy and change laws? Such is life in the last days…

Bergoglio Heretic

 Roman Catholic gay rights groups around the world hailed the paper as a breakthrough, but Church conservatives called it a betrayal of traditional family values.

In a dramatic shift in tone, a Vatican document said on Monday that homosexuals had “gifts and qualities to offer” and asked if Catholicism could accept gays and recognize positive aspects of same-sex couples.

The document, prepared after a week of discussions at an assembly of 200 bishops on the family, said the Church should challenge itself to find “a fraternal space” for homosexuals without compromising Catholic doctrine on family and matrimony.

 “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community: are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a further space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home,” said the document, known by its Latin name “relatio”.

“Are our communities capable of proving that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?” it asked.

 New Ways Ministry, a leading U.S. Catholic gay rights group, called it a “major step forward”, praising it for being devoid of the “major gloom and doom and apocalyptic horror” that accompanied past Vatican pronouncements on homosexuals.


“Catholics were among those who persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy!!,”

“I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil!?!”

Pope Francis-Bergoglio is our chastisement! Domine, miserere nobis.

CASERTA, Italy (RNS) Pope Francis sought forgiveness for decades of persecution of Italian Pentecostals when he met with around 300 evangelicals from the U.S., Argentina and Italy in the southern town of Caserta on Monday (July 28).

The pope made his second visit in as many days to the Mafia stronghold near Naples, this time to meet evangelical pastor Giovanni Traettino, whom he befriended while he was archbishop of Buenos Aires.

During the visit, Francis apologized for the persecution suffered by Pentecostals under Italy’s fascist regime in the 1920s and 1930s and urged Christians to celebrate their diversity and unity.

“Catholics were among those who persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy,” Francis said.

“I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil.”

Since his election last year, the pope has been reaching out to other faiths and has held talks with Protestant, Jewish and Muslim leaders. On Monday, he went even further by apologizing for what Catholics had done.

Luca Baratto, a pastor from the Italian Federation of Evangelical Churches, said the pope’s apology was unexpected and greatly appreciated.

“It is very important to remember the racial laws through which the Pentecostals were victims under fascism,” he told the Italian news agency, AdnKronos. “We really appreciate the opening of dialogue by this pope.”

Calling the pope “my beloved brother,” Traettino said the evangelical community was deeply grateful for the visit, which would have been unthinkable until recently.

Indeed, whereas now-retired Pope Benedict XVI channeled his energies into trying to reconcile with traditionalist Catholics, Francis has spent more time reaching out to conservative evangelical leaders; his recent three-hour meeting with American televangelists raised some eyebrows and resulted in what was dubbed the first-ever papal high-five.

“With a single gesture he has opened the door wider, overcoming any complications of protocol and going directly to the heart of human relations,” Traettino said of his meeting with Francis.

One participant said it was a very emotional moment when the pope asked forgiveness, and “everyone was in tears.”

The pope arrived in Caserta by helicopter and after a private conversation at Traettino’s home, he met with the community of the Evangelical  Church of Reconciliation at the site of their church, which is under construction.

A notable absentee was Bishop Tony Palmer, the charismatic preacher who used a cellphone camera to record Francis’ appeal for unity between Catholics and evangelicals. He was killed just over a week ago (July 20) in a motorcycle crash in the United Kingdom.

On Saturday, around 200,000 faithful gathered for the pope’s first stop in Caserta, a stronghold of the notorious Naples Mafia known as Camorra.

The pontiff did not mention the Camorra, which runs a vast organized crime empire including drug trafficking, money laundering and extortion, but spoke out against “corruption and lawlessness” during his address.
