It seems to me that something of a rockstar mentality is on display by the Pope's many unscripted remarks.
You Gotta just love God! Spit! No mincing words with Him!
There the Lord goes again, being politically incorrect and insensitive, saying that Christian disciples who aren't salty, aren't even worthy of inhabiting a manure pile.
I for one, will faithfully represent the authentic teachings of our faith and not muddy the waters with honeyed kisses that obscure the expectations of so great a God as we have. The Pope and the Church should be concerned for the souls of all and especially those who sin, rather than comforting them in their sinfulness. In conclusion, I have no interest in his Holiness' personal opinion. What I am interested in is hearing the opinion of Christ, the authentic voice of the Church. I am interested in hearing proclaimed aloud, the authentic teaching of the true religion, the fullness of truth which has power to save and to change even the hardened sinner. That is the call and responsibility of all of our priests and most especially the hierarchy of God's Church on earth. Pope Francis must first earn my human admiration and trust if he wishes for me to admire his human opinion and that he has not done.
