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.”

Cardinal Schönborn proposes “rethinking” this obligation for the Catholic clergy. And so do other bishops. Benedict XVI, however, wants to strengthen it. In support he has the whole history of the Church, since the time of the apostles

The Faithful or the Unfaithful Slave

41 Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?” 42 And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44 Truly, I tell you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45 But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish[f] him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more. [Lk 12:41-48 (RSVCE)]

Pope Francis’ Martians

Recall:

Just as if, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came … green, with long noses and big ears, just like children draw them … and one were to say, ‘I want to be baptized!’. What would happen? | We are all ostiaries (12 May 2014) | Morning Meditation in the Chapel of the Domus Santae Marthae | Pope Francis

Pope Francis’ Martians are  “people living in such unions [same sex] request[ing] a child’s baptism” cf. Instrumentum Laboris 2014 No. 120.



[Update 4/26/2015]:

In Baptism, join new faithful to the People of God. Do not ever refuse Baptism to anyone who asks! With the Sacrament of Penance, forgive sins in the name of Christ and the Church. And I, in the name of Jesus Christ, the Lord, and his Bride, the Holy Church, I ask you not to grow weary of being merciful. In the confessional, you are to going to forgive, not to condemn! Imitate the Father who never gets tired of forgiving. With holy oil, you will give relief to sick. Celebrating the sacred rites and raising at various times of day prayers of praise and supplication, you will make the voice of the People of God and of all humanity. – Pope Francis, Pope’s Homily to New Priests on 52nd World Day of Prayer for Vocations | ZENIT.
