Reports: Pope blesses lesbian authors for their “excellent Christian values”

Pope Francis has reportedly pronounced two “married” women  fruitful, with excellent Christian values.

Lesbian author Francesca Pardi, who writes and publishes books such as “Why you have two mummies“, wrote to Pope Francis after the publishing company she runs with her wife came under fire from Christian groups.

Now she is getting a Papal blessing and well wishes.  Should she also maybe get the Gospel message? And the truth about what the Bible says about sin?

Pope Francis has sent his blessing to a lesbian author of children’s books dealing with same-sex families, wishing her and her wife well in their work, it emerged on Friday.

As Vatican officials scrambled to clarify that the message was simply a standard courtesy which did not signal any change in Church teaching on the subject, the author told AFP she had been pleasantly surprised to have received such a positive response.

Francesca Pardi, who writes and publishes books such as “Why you have two mummies”, wrote to Francis in June after the publishing company she runs with her wife came under fire from Christian groups.

She included examples of her works, some of which have recently been controversially withdrawn from nurseries and primary schools by a new mayor in Venice.

“My books present different types of families without setting any of them up as a model,” Pardi told AFP, praising the pope for having responded in a manner that showed “respect and dignity” towards her, her wife and their four children.

“It was not important for me that it was the pope who said it, I am not a Catholic. But it is important to see that we are not up against a wall. A dialogue is possible,” she added.

“Books are to be opened, to be read and to be criticised. What you don’t do is ban them.”

In his message, the pope wished the two women “ever more fruitful work in the service of young generations and in spreading authentic human and Christian values.”

Francis has signalled that he wants the Church to adopt a more pragmatic and understanding approach to the situation of believers living in gay relationships, an attitude reflected in his famous “who am I to judge” remark on the subject.

But proposals to integrate a shift to a more welcoming tone into the conclusions of an ongoing Church review of its teaching on the family have been opposed by conservatives.

Bishops from around the world will return to the subject at a Vatican synod in October which will seek to find a compromise on that and other divisive issues.

Pardi and her partner got married in Spain. Italy is the only major western European country that has no provision for same sex couples to have their unions legally recognised. The centre-left government has pledged to enact legislation introducing the possibility of civil unions by the end of this year but there are no plans to legalise gay marriage.

    There is no surprise in the popes message to these women. The Catholic religion has long shown itself to be blasphemous. Even the catechism says that Jesus came to make them gods. It can only go down hill from there.
    What they need is deliverance from the doctrines of devils that binds them to the whore.

    There is nothing Christian about the Catholic Church, that is why this is no surprise. In fact it goes right along with their agenda for the one world religion under the banner of their rainbow flag. You don’t have ‘Christian’ values while you deny the faith in word or deed in such an obvious way.

    This Pope is an evil demonic person and knows nothing of the scripture, he is the false prophet spoken of in the scripture and he is not welcome in my country, we don’t want you here so stay in the Vatican.

    This clown is no Pope !

    Pope is a fraud and a NWO stooge.

    The Pope IS Catholic. Catholics are not Christians. Though they ripped it off when they saw it could control people.

    Pope Francis will have to answer to God for each soul he has led astray in his efforts to be all-inclusive. Until that time, we need to pray for him and all who are following him.

    This marxist, anti-capitalist, liberal, relativistic pope causes many Catholics much anguish. I am ashamed that he is the leader of the church I was born into and raised in then, in which I subsequently raised my own children. Since he said he expects only 2-3 more years of life, my wish is that he has enough time and prayers from believers that he will see the folly of his ways and ultimately does what God expects of him, rather than twisting the Word in his own imagination and trying to fundamentally change Catholicism. As for Vatican officials who are running interference for him and trying to explain away his blasphemy, they are just as much at fault. Let us follow men like the Tyler, TX bishop:

    Roman Catholic do not take the Holy Bible literally. They do not believe that the pages from Genesis through Revelation is the Word of God. Since they do not know the Word of God they would something that is not Christian. There is no such thing as a Homosexual or Lesbian Christian, period!. Read 1 Corinthians 6:9 where God says anyone involved with the sin of homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God – heaven.

    Pope Francis is a huge embsrassment to the catholic in africa.
    many of them have rejected this man as pope, a good chunk converting to Pentecostal churches.
    Ugandans, we pray for gays may God shower His graces.
    To go gay, upon our corpses.

    This claim is NOT true and is a fabrication of the truth

    The above is just one place where this has been addresses.

    The Catholic Church and Pope teach “Love the sinner, hate the sin”

    Gay marriage and homosexual activities will NEVER be accepted by the Catholic Church.

    Additionally, many of the comments here very unchristian and it is extremely unchristian to say that Catholics, who believe in the Trinity, The Bible, and most importantly worship Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior.

    May The Lord grant us all wisdom and understanding. Amen.

      Catholic doctrine is unChristian.
      Pray to the dead.
      Worship Mray as a coredeemer with Christ.
      Forbidding to marry.
      Works salvation mixed with “faith”.
      Belief that Jesus came to make us gods.
      The list goes on and on. You must repent of your idolatries or be damned forever.

        With all due respect everything you just said is not true.

        We communicate with the dead saints in heaven only to Aspen for us to pray for us just us to choose their deceased that the police were in heaven to pray for them. Do orthodox also ask suites in heaven to pray for them because Jesus is not God is dead he’s the king of the living and everyone who has died in Christ is part of that is still living as part of the body of Christ.

        In regards to Mary’s role as a coredemtrix it’s a misunderstanding to believe that she has the same power as Christ or responsibility as Christ. Mary was a person, she is a creature, is not God. There is no fourth person of the Trinity. However, because Jesus loves his mother, and honors his mother – following the The Ten Commandments – Jesus often listens to his mother prayers. And sometimes He grants her prayers, which are never in conflict with the Father because Mary is in Heaven and part of beautific vision.

        The Catholic Church has many married priests. Of the several Rites of the Catholic Church, only the Roman Rite of the Latin Church has a DISCIPLINE (not dogma nor doctrine) of requiring celibate priests. All the other Catholic Rites allow married men to become priests. However, just like the Eastern Orthodox, Oriential Orthodox, and Church of the East; once ordained, an unmarried Priest cannot marry. This is because a priest must be totally dedicated to his sheep. A married man must split his time between family and flock, family being most important. But a unmarried priest may dedicate all of his time to sheep. The discipline was taught to us by Saint Paul himself. It follows St Paul’s example and St Paul even mentions the advantages for celibacy in the Bible. Finally, it’s the example Christ gave. Jesus could have married if He wished, but He didn’t. Jesus was dedicated to His sheep and willing to lay down His life for us. A good priest also must be willing to lay down his life for his flock, like St Maximilian Kolbe did for a Jewish man at Auschwitz during WW2.

        The Catholic Church believes that we are saved by sanctifying Grace from our Lord. We believe, as The Bible teaches, that faith without works is dead. As the Bible teaches, the devil has Faith in Christ and so do the demons. In order to be saved we must cooperate with the Graces God gives us. We must live our Faith, as St James teaches us in the Bible.

        “Belief that Jesus came to us from the gods”????? I have no idea where you got this one. This is totally ridiculous. Jesus Christ is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. The only Son of God, incarnate of the Virgin Mary, fully man and fully God.

        If I’m guilty of Idolatry, then so where the Apostles. When I read the liturgies from the 60s AD (30 years after Christ’s Sacrifice on Calvary, they look pretty Catholic to me

        If you are going to attempt to convert faithful Catholics who actually know their Faith and The Bible, then you will need to do your homework, because these claims are bogus.

        May Father, please grant us wisdom and understanding so we may all become part of the Body of Christ. We pray this in the name of Your son Jesus Christ, with the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

          Your first statement was “everything you just said is not true”. The very next thing you said is “We COMMUNICATE with the dead saints…” Which is by definition praying to the dead. A practice forbidden by God in Duet.18:9-12. God calls what you Catholics practice an abomination. But you call it “church”.
          I believe I will trust God and reject your Catholic idolatries. You should do the same before it is too late.

        • edwitness September 5, 2015 at 3:15 am #

          In regard to your statement about Mary not being God, I thought I would help you with that one too. Accoording to the Catholic Catechism #460 “Jesus came to make men gods”.
          Look it up yourself.

          Phil I implore you..please see mark of the beast and antichrist…worshipping statues and trusting a man as the so-called christian leader??? He is a liar and deceiver. They do not believe in marriage, yet The Lord says, a man will cleave to his wife….they say mary had no other children, yet the bible clearly states, they had multiple kids….please pray for wisdom to Jesus Christ and not dead men…
