POPE FRANCIS CONDEMNS RACISM AND DECLARES THAT
“ALL RELIGIONS ARE TRUE” AT HISTORIC THIRD VATICAN COUNCIL


The Third Vatican Council concluded today with Pope Francis announcing that Catholicism is now a “modern and reasonable religion, which has undergone evolutionary changes. The time has come to abandon all intolerance. We must recognize that religious truth evolves and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine. Through acts of love and charity the atheist acknowledges God as well, and redeems his own soul, becoming an active participant in the redemption of humanity.”


“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God” Pope Francis declared.

In a speech that shocked many, the Pope claimed “All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

In a announcement that shocked many people, Pope Francis warned that “those who seek to deny a home to the migrant, to the African and the Muslim, risk their membership in the church. We will consider excommunication for those whose souls willingly dwell in the darkness and evil of intolerance and racism. Satan himself is a metaphor or a personification, for the collective evils of mankind. Today, these evils manifest foremost as racism, intolerance, religious persecution and bigotries of all kinds.”

13. thanks

I'm usually more careful about sources.. this was too good.
I should have suspected it was satire because nobody on
DU was talking about it.

2. This is NOT real.

It would be really nice if it were, but it is not.

It's been floating around facebook and repeatedly pointed out that there has been NO Third Vatican Council.

18. I know. I read it on facebook

and it actually moved me enough to make me cry.

Then I found out it was 'satire' and I was kind of pissed at the person who wrote it.

22. It's not so far from statements he's already made

except maybe the Vatican 3 part. Which reminds me of the back cover of a 1972 novel by the late great Brian Moore:


In the not-too-distant future, the Fourth Vatican Council has abolished private confession, clerical dress, and the Latin Mass, and opened discussions about a merger with Buddhism. Authorities in Rome are embarrassed by publicity surrounding a group of monks who stubbornly celebrate the old Mass in their island abbey off the coast of Ireland. The clever, assured Father James Kinsella is dispatched to set things right. At Muck Abbey he meets Abbot Tomás, a man plagued by doubt who nevertheless leads his monks in the old ways. In the hands of the masterly Brian Moore, their confrontation becomes a subtle, provocative parable of doubt and faith.

. . . okay now back to wrapping which I really hate . . .

24. yes exactly, it is not too far of a stretch

at least when I first read it -- but shortly after posting I
started thinking about certain parts and getting a funny
feeling it wasn't true.. for example, "the myth of Adam and Eve"
and women being ordainable.

If you ask me, the author has something of an agenda.
