Pontiff revolutionary? Speech by Pope Francis at the General Assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Life

28
What is happening in our world today is so controversial that for many people this world becomes initially hostile. Hostile almost from the moment of birth. Yes, and the strangeness of this world begins for a person not even from birth, but from conception. He is unable to be born independently at the very moment when conceived! It is necessary to follow him. It is necessary to "feed" drugs. Yes, and the moment of birth must either stimulate or help the baby surgically.




And such an inability to live for the majority becomes the norm in the future. What happens when electricity suddenly disappears in a big city? And if today someone will turn off the heating? Even the repair of a bridge on the road, on which a person is used to driving to work, becomes a tragedy for many. We build cities where life becomes uncomfortable. Where at least two categories of people are not needed. The cities are simply not designed for them. Children and old people. I sometimes think about a simple question: would I like my childhood to be like the childhood of my grandchildren? To the yard was a great playground for kids, but there was no park, basements, attics. So that I buy worms for fishing, and not dig them somewhere in the sawmill ...

But the worst thing that happened in the modern world is “unisex”. We have become less and less even outwardly to be men and women. We are unisex! In the same jackets, jeans, boots. Even sometimes the same makeup. Job? And what is the difference between the work of women and men today? A woman walking along the avenue with a cigarette in her teeth is a big hit today? Rather, a man with flowers is a big hit.

Humanity is so arranged that it is very dependent on the opinion of the majority. And humanity depends on man! Not an abstract "average person", but from Man. No wonder we are called a flock. We are the ones that just need to graze. Graze the many shepherds. From the boy-instigators in the children's sandbox, to kings, emperors, presidents. Offensively? By no means. We ourselves have come up with an excellent formulation of this phenomenon. I'm a simple person! So, there is not simple!

There are people who manage a team by virtue of their position. How often do we talk about supervisors-boobies. There are people who become leaders in difficult circumstances. People who are initially able to take responsibility for themselves, but for various reasons are not able to become a leader. There are people who become leaders because of their genius. A genius is always pulled by a train of assistants who will translate his ideas into concrete products.

And there are people whose word can induce millions to act. Word! These are those who preach faith. Those who help a person to heal the soul. Those who give a person inner confidence in the correctness of their actions. There are few such people. But they remain with humanity even after their departure into another world.

Congenital curiosity sometimes plays with me not only bad, but good jokes. It happened this time. I, an Orthodox person. But the shepherd of another branch of Christianity is also interesting for me. I'm about the pope. It is interesting only because it belongs to the category of people who are able to manage millions with their own words.

Few know that the Pontifical Academy of Life exists in the Vatican. An organization that is called upon to respond promptly to changes in our life, to new ideas, new trends, as it is fashionable today to write. And this academy gathers enough serious theologians, scientists, philosophers within its walls.

5 and 6 in October, the XXIII General Assembly of the members of the Pontifical Academy of Life was held in the Vatican. Naturally, the pontiff expressed his opinion on the problems of our time. The main idea of ​​the speech of Pope Francis was the long-standing problem of the "middle sex". And, accordingly, all the resulting problems. "It is necessary to resist interpretations of gender differences on the part of those who want to destroy these differences."

From the point of view of the ordinary man in the street, which we are, everything is simple. God (nature) created us as we are. And our destiny is predetermined initially. The man “moves the progress”, the woman keeps everything positive, to which the man “got”. Nothing new can come up with. Any biologist will tell you that mutations in living organisms initially occur in males. And only after several generations, if the mutation is positive, female individuals appear with the same signs. But there is one "snag." We are people. Thinking beings.

Try today to "drive" a woman into the same framework of life, in which she was still a hundred years ago. I doubt that it will work out. Today, women occupy at least an equal position with men, and in some areas of life even more privileged. From here came, as it seems to me, all these ideas about the average field of a person. Ideas about the full "equality" of the sexes. In all.

Pope Francis speaks directly about the rejection of the relations between the sexes that existed until now. He demands to completely abandon "the forms of submission, which, unfortunately, women experienced during stories"If we go further, Francis proposes to destroy the existing world order." ... In the ethos of peoples, a new beginning should be designated, and an updated culture of identity and differences can do that. "

I understand that for many readers some psychological shock has come. We are accustomed to the fact that the church organization is conservative. Existing for centuries and having centuries-old traditions of faith. Then you should read the following quote from the pontiff:

"... thus, on the horizon of the history of this time stands the real cultural revolution. And the church should play its role first. In this perspective, it is necessary first of all to honestly recognize the shortcomings and delays."

Dad is a revolutionary? To some extent, yes. And this revolutionism is caused not so much by the personal attitude of Pope Francis to the problem, but by completely prosaic, but by the most important things for humanity. Sorry for a rough comparison, but the number of lambs of God in the flock of the pontiff decreases dramatically. No, faith is preserved, but physical carriers of this very faith are not added. The society is quiet, but with the constancy of the express train, is declining.

"... procreation between a man and a woman is the key to the global humanism of men and women, not a disadvantage. Our history will not be renewed if we give up this truth." "... because life is accepted as a gift, it transcends itself in the gift: by giving birth to it, we are reborn, living it, we are enriched. It is necessary to accept a challenge in the face of a threat to the continuation of human life, as if it were a matter of humiliating a woman and general welfare. "

For many years now, Western society has cultivated ideas of gender equality. Us Russians. often blamed for radicalism in this matter. Read the Western press about the unfortunate Chechen girls who are not allowed to get an education, about the obstacles for women in Central Russia that prevent them from entering certain universities. about the Russian army, where women can not serve in some positions. There are many such examples. Russia is a barbaric, wild country in the eyes of the average European or American.

But, as it turned out, our radicalism in matters of women's equality is true. Russian women are more likely protected by our traditions in their freedom than limited. Protected by tradition, not laws. Protected by exactly what the pontiff Francis calls for.

"Biological and psychological manipulation of gender differences, which is now provided for by biological and medical technologies, implies that they are a sphere of free choice (while it is not), this carries the risk of destroying the source of energy that fuels the union between man and woman making it creative and fruitful. "

In fact, Pope Francis stands for restricting freedom of choice! Against one of the fundamental freedoms of a "democratic society". Can you imagine what will begin in the "democratic" press? I think that there will be "experts" who in the Bible will find an excuse for the techniques and practices of changing the sex of a person. Only where it can lead humanity further? Can you imagine a family in 100 years? "Honey, let's be a man in even months, and I am on odd ... And we will take turns cloning the children" ...

Is it really not clear that a clone will always remain a clone! Nature created man bisexual not on a whim. This is a vital necessity. Two different organisms give birth to the third. Better, more adapted to life. The child absorbs the qualities of both parents. And moms and dads. In children, the continuation of humanity! We are eternal, while we have descendants.

But this is not all the revolutionary ideas of Pope Francis. Only the part that is most interesting. Honestly, I read the speech and marvel at his courage and mind. The pope calls to condemn "worship before the ego" "unlimited materialism" of the "union of economies and technologies"! It seems nothing terrible for "democracy". Scary on. This same admiration and materialism spread the idea of ​​"life as a resource that needs to be spent or discounted, depending on the priorities of power and profit"! This is a literal quote from the speech of the pontiff! Comrade Che welcomes comrade Fra!

And further more. The idea of ​​"well-being that supposedly automatically spreads with the expansion of the market" is accompanied by an increase in the "areas of poverty and conflict, abandonment and abandonment"!

Human society, "in which all this can only be bought and sold, bureaucratically verified and technically predisposed, is a society that has lost the meaning of life. It will not pass it on to its young children and does not recognize it in its elderly parents. That is why, almost without giving away to ourselves in this report, we are building cities, more and more hostile towards children, and communities, more and more unfriendly towards older people, from walls with no windows or doors; they are meant to protect, but in reality people are choking " .

I already wrote that I am not often interested in church affairs. Even ours, Russian. Like most Russians, I’m more likely a "near believer." Sometimes I go to church. But more often I am busy with my own problems and find a bunch of reasons not to do it. At the same time, I respect all religions and those for whom it is more important than for me.

Those thoughts and ideas that a person expressed, whose word is sacred to millions of Catholics, are really interesting. And the fact that they are expressed not at some closed "small party game", but at the General Assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Life, says that the church is beginning to return to secular life. It is impossible to be "because there is". The problems of modern man are a bit more complicated than those encountered by our ancestors. And the solution to these problems should be sought not only by scientists, politicians, journalists ... For the vast part of the world's population, the words of the shepherd remain important. The church must return to the thick of things. It is for the further development of mankind. To save humanity.

      There are many simple methods for determining evil.

      Market economy, competition are based on selfishness. A market economy is the absorption of public resources by successful units.

      EVIL is all that harms the harmony of society.

      It is hoped that an energy standard tied to the gold standard and a basket of currencies will ultimately kill the market and competition.

      The era of planned economy will come.

          If the rules and laws of society do not suit you, solve your problem in accessible ways.

          But if your behavior will harm society, then society will be very ugly to such.

          And leave for yourself the tales of "herd thinking."

    “Therefore, by their fruits you will know them” (Matthew 7.20). These magnificent statements by Pope Francis somehow do not fit well with his words about homosexuality and pedophilia in the ranks of the clergy of the Catholic Church. Not verbatim, but the meaning is as follows: it is not for us to JUDGE about their actions, it is the work of the Almighty. It turns out that the "free" to sin on earth, and God will deal with you in heaven. By the way, during the heyday of the "Borgia family" - the Vatican was a natural den. So Nietzsche curses Luther, who, with his reforms, prevented the collapse of the papacy. I don’t know the details of this, but there is reason to trust him in the content of the literature describing the life history of that era.

      No offense. I am not a special expert in theology, but ... No matter how you relate to the Vatican, this is the center of one of the world religions! A man, even seven spans in his forehead, is just a man. And therefore, nothing human is alien to him. Talking about people and associating their actions with millions of people who believe, I think is stupid.
      I am sure that exactly the same problems concern the heads of other world religions today ...

        A man is just a man. But a system is a group of people subordinate to a hierarchy.

        And the issue of pederasty in Catholicism is precisely the problem of the system when the percentage of pedophiles among priests is greater than among ordinary people, and their system covers all over the world. And when I say “system covers” I am talking about Cardinal (!!!) Bernard Francis Lowe who proved to know about pedophiles in robes and proved to cover them by transferring from parish to parish so that they would rap as many children as possible. What happened to him after? Pope John Paul II appointed him to the Roman Curia, after he served one of the funeral masses for the same Pope, and after that he was a cardinal elector and chose a new one, that is, according to the results of Benedict XVI. This I understand the reward for his "merit."

        So yes, these actions can be safely connected with millions of people who believe that affects their behavior, which makes children from Catholic families trusting Catholic priests, and makes their parents not notice everything that is happening.

    "A pontiff revolutionary?"
    No. Pontiff Jesuit. A Jesuit is ordered to say what they want to hear from him, and to do what the order requires.
    Staver, which "church is beginning to return to worldly life"? What are you talking about? Have you forgotten that dad is the head of state? The Vatican Bank is one of the most influential and significant in the global economy and politics, in a fierce struggle for world power. The Vatican has been a thousand years old, head over heels in worldly life. Where more?
    Read the "Sovereign" Machiavelli. Everything from the crust to the crust of the popes and their Jesuitism ...
    "The end justifies the means" Ignatius Loyola. Dad of all the Jesuits.

    What is happening now, in general, resembles the implementation of a horror film about the accession of the Unclean. Everything that was considered a sin for thousands of years is now presented in the West as virtue, and what is inherent in man, as the supreme creation of the Lord, is recognized as completely unnecessary and eradicated by all means. Now we have the same way as they do and I look longingly for our pot-bellied priests, who have turned into managers for the provision of funeral services. And at the head of this is our Glavpop, who bathes in the resorts. This is instead of going somewhere to Solovki and fasting there in prayers for six months.

        Well, so there was no such "reconciliation." They rubbed eye-to-eye about something and fled. Evil tongues claim that the conversation was about what to do now that he was born and entered the world of Moshiach.

        these crosses do not say anything. You did not think that in the world of the total population the percentage of Christians is not so great. And somehow, everyone lives and prays for completely different idols. And for example, a thousand years ago, it was Christians with a gulkin nose, but people lived giving birth and died fighting and believed in something and also went into battle with something in the bosom ... The cross is simple about a fetish, the same as for example a custom to drink beer after the bathhouse ..

    The main book of Catholics is the Bible. They turn to her, quote her, the departure from the biblical canons will kill the Vatican. All the same, no one believes in God. Religion serves only to preserve the foundations, and what no culture. Destroying the foundations is like chopping the branch you are sitting on. From the article it’s generally not clear where the author is talking about, and what kind of place the Pope is a revolutionary. It is not for nothing that people from Europe flee to ISIS (the organization is prohibited in the Russian Federation) - this is an internal protest against the use of the digestive organs (rectum) as genitals. laughing

    Naturally, he is a Christian. And for him the gospel is the law, including the verses written below.

    42 Jesus said to them: if God were your Father, you would love me, because I came from God and came; for I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me.
    43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you cannot hear My word.
    44 Your father is the devil; and you want to fulfill the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and did not stand in the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks his own, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

    And your god is the father of lies, the devil. Therefore, the pope is not yours, even if he were yours laughing

    ... and ours, the Russian patriarch, for the same thing - their own chaplins, longins and ambrosia - almost curse, for "ecumenism"!
    And meanwhile: neither the world, nor the Christian church - do not stand still!
    Orthodoxy? Yes!!!
    ... but do not forget that it was not always there! Opponents of the upcoming Pan-Orthodox Council? But weren't they in предыдущих Cathedrals? Starting from Nicaea ...
    Roman Catholics do not recognize - to this day! - some cathedrals; and Protestants - not a single one! Maybe the situation will change? All the same - there is a possibility of bilateral influence ... or, as before - we will assume that is a good quarrel better than a bad world? A good quarrel with murders and destruction ...

    1. The fact that you the post is called delirium, however, for Jews this is the norm, an article about the Pope Christian Jewish opinion of Christianity as a dog fifth leg.
    Well, other topics ... but poke your snout here?
    So I pulled you with my charter in a strange monastery do not go.
    And you started trolling nonsense.
    2. Well, since I started to troll so skillfully.
    In ev from John specifically written, Jesus said this to the scribes and Pharisees of the modern rabbis that Abraham did not do this if you were the children of Abraham, then Abraham did things.
    Ale for those in the tank your father is not GOD, but your father is the devil.
    3. Also inserted an icon ... fool ... is it like this method of persuasion among Jews? Yes? fool
    And then everyone is to blame for the Jewish pogroms, and you are white and fluffy? Yes... .

    Once again, what does what you wrote to the phrase that your father is not God, but your father is the devil.
    man, don’t be insolent, go to other Troll branches, and now we will have a discussion about the lamentation wall of the destroyed Jewish temple (sorry not completely destroyed), you and others with the Israeli flag will begin to hysteria and knock me to the moderator, which was already hundreds of times and dozens from the moderator got a ban.

    We sit on a Russian site, write in Russian, communicate in moderation, who has how much free time. But we don’t go to the sites of Israel and do not post various nonsense and nastiness in Hebrew? we don’t need it but here is what you are doing here a riddle.
