February 3, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – We truly live in a world where good is considered evil and evil, good. Where everything is upside down and backwards. Where Black Lives Matter gets nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and John Kerry, who, with his wife owns multiple estates, cars, SUVs and a jet, is now the Biden administration’s climate czar urging Americans to take public transit to save the planet.
But nothing is so bizarre as Pope Francis’ latest comments using scatological terms to describe the media and bashing Catholic ‘fundamentalists’. Coming in a close second this week, is San Diego Bishop McElroy who commented on Holy Communion for President Biden. But at least Archbishop Vigano has a very Catholic message for the Feast of the Purification of Mary, also known as the Feast of the Presentation, which we celebrated yesterday.
In shocking comments made in an interview with the US
Bishops’ news agency Catholic News Service Monday, Pope Francis used the term “coprophilia” – which, according to Wikipedia, refers to “sexual arousal and pleasure from feces.”
It’s not the first time the Pope has used the term to the consternation of Catholics. He made similar remarks in 2016 using the same scatological term.
The Pope’s comments came as he described the four main sins of journalists who are “always wanting to communicate scandal, to communicate ugly things, even though they may be true.”
The Pope went after what he called “traditionalists” in the United States, suggesting that they need healing. “The Church [in the U.S.] is very alive, very, very alive. There are perhaps traditionalist groups, but we have those here in the Vatican too. This can be healed,” he said.
