Was Scalfari right when quoted as saying, “Pope has De Facto Abolished Sin with Evangelii Gaudium“?


Scalfari: “Pope has De Facto Abolished Sin With Evangelii Gaudium”
Source: “Pope Francis Just Abolished Sin” — Scalfari’s New Christendom, Where God is Replaced by I, Monday, December 30, 2013 | The Eponymous Flower.

Vatican responded: cf. It’s official: Pope has not abolished sin, says Vatican, Tue Dec 31, 2013 5:29am EST | Reuters.

It appears that this is the case from 2014 Synod’s “Relatio post disceptationem”

cf. Erdö’s Relatio cancels sin and the natural law in an instant, October 15, 2014, Il Foglio | Roberto de Mattei – Source: De Mattei on the Synod Relatio: “The Need to Resist Heretical Tendencies” | RORATE CÆLI.

Sin abolished by: “gradualness of law” vs. “law of gradualness”.

And mostly it would dispense of the need to observe the commandments, a power that no one on earth has. – RORATE CÆLI: Socci: The Pope Who Wants to Put Himself in God’s Place

In the incriminating article, Seifert, asked Pope Francis to retract an affirmation in Amoris laetitia from which, on the basis of convincing logic, would result in the  dissolution  of  Catholic moral teaching in its entirety. **

Seifert cites the sentence in Amoris laetitia according to which the conscience of adulterous couples, otherwise known as “irregular couples” can do more than recognize that a given situation does not correspond objectively to the overall demands of the Gospel.  It can also recognize with sincerity and honesty what for now is the most generous response which can be given to God, and come to see with a certain moral security that it is what God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits, while yet not fully the objective ideal (AL, no. 303). 
In other words, Seifert comments, besides defining the objective state of grave mortal sin “not yet fully the objective ideal”, Amoris laetitia affirms that we can know with a certain moral security that God Himself asks us to commit intrinsically wicked acts, like adultery and active homosexuality. 
The Austrian philosopher at this point poses his question:” I ask: Can pure Logic fail to ask us under this assumption: If only one case of an intrinsically immoral act can be permitted and even willed by God, must this not apply to all acts considered ‘intrinsically wrong’? If it is true that God can want an adulterous couple to live in adultery, should then not also the commandment ‘Do not commit adultery!’ be reformulated?  […] Must then not also the other 9 commandments, Humanae VitaeEvangelium Vitae, and all past and present or future Church documents, dogmas, or councils that teach the existence of intrinsically wrong acts, fall? […]Must then not from pure logic euthanasia, suicide, or assistance to it, lies, thefts, perjuries, negations or betrayals of Christ, like that of St. Peter, or murder, under some circumstances and after proper “discernment,” be good and praiseworthy because of the complexity of a concrete situation.”

#PopeFrancis: ‘I am a son of the church.’

After his election to the papacy, Pope Francis described himself as “a faithful son of the Church.” – Cf. Pope Francis in Conciliar Context by Howard Kainz, Wednesday, September 7, 2016 | The Catholic Thing

Another variation: ‘loyal son of the Church.’

That is how people have taken or understood what pope Francis actually said:

“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. – Cf. Vatican website: Francis > Speeches > 2013 September > Interview with Pope Francis by Fr Antonio Spadaro

One may be a son of the Church but not necessarily a true, loyal or faithful son of the Church.

Tell me @FMShyanguya, are you a [loyal] son of the Church?

“If I am not, please God make me, if I am, please God so keep me and Gratias![1]

By your command,
Their person and office I honor.[2]
But these voices I follow not,[3]
Of hirelings that care not.
Robbers at hand,
Of God’s glory denying him honour
To the simple flock,
A revelation of horror!

[1] cf. The Maid of Orleans

[2] 4th Honor your father and your mother.

[3] Jn 10:5: ‘they never follow a stranger but run away from him: they do not recognize the voice of strangers.’

Come! Let me show you a new path, a new way, suited/designed/tailored only for you:

It is the way to the #Abyss,

The Downward spiral

To the #BottomlessPit

And it is:

Q. “At half a century from Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae, can the Church take up again the theme of birth control? Cardinal Martini, your confrere, thought that the moment had come.

PF. All of this depends on how Humanae Vitae is interpreted. Paul VI himself, at the end, recommended to confessors much mercy and attention to concrete situations. But his genius was prophetic: He had the courage to place himself against the majority, defending the moral discipline, exercising a culture brake, opposing present and future neo-Malthusianism. The question is not that of changing the doctrine, but of going #deeper and making pastoral (ministry) take into account the situations and that which it is possible for people to do. Also of this we will speak in the path of the synod.

Pope’s Mass: A hypocrite doesn’t need the Lord, he disguises himself as a saint

A distraction/diversion from:

Gravity of the Situation
2. That We make no delay in this matter is rendered necessary especially by the fact that the partisans of error are to be sought not only among the Church’s open enemies; they lie hid, a thing to be deeply deplored and feared, in her very bosom and heart, and are the more mischievous, the less conspicuously they appear. We allude, Venerable Brethren, to many who belong to the Catholic laity, nay, and this is far more lamentable, to the ranks of the priesthood itself, who, feigning a love for the Church, lacking the firm protection of philosophy and theology, nay more, thoroughly imbued with the poisonous doctrines taught by the enemies of the Church, and lost to all sense of modesty, vaunt themselves as reformers of the Church; and, forming more boldly into line of attack, assail all that is most sacred in the work of Christ, not sparing even the person of the Divine Redeemer, whom, with sacrilegious daring, they reduce to a simple, mere man.


Maybe Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, you posed Are #Christians the New #Jews? in a prophetic spirit. The answer to which may soon appear. Listen to the drumbeat: the saints!
