"Catholics would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present themselves for Holy Communion, if they were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stance on abortion or euthanasia."
Quotes From Your New Pope...
"When a Catholic does not share a candidate's stand in favor of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons."
"In Levitic 18, 22 and 20, 13, when it is indicated what the necessary conditions to belong to the elected people are, the author leaves out from the people of God those who have a homosexual behaviour."
"In some nations a real attempt to manipulate the Church is taking place in order to get the support of the priests and to change the rules of the legislation. The purpose of this action is to conform legislation to these groups' conception according to which homosexuality is a perfectly harmless reality, if not totally good. Although the practice of homosexuality is seriously threatening the life and the welfare of a big numner of people, the authors of this tendency don't give up and refuse to take into consideration the huge risk that is implied with it".
"The Bishops will have by any means to support the development of specialized forms of pastoral cure for homosexual people. This might include the collaboration of psychology, sociology and medicine, always remaining faithful to the doctrine of the Church".
“Every outlook which presents itself as a conflict between the sexes is only an illusion and a danger: it would end in segregation and competition between men and women, and would promote a solipsism nourished by a false conception of freedom.”
And this is just scratching the surface.... I'm sure others will chime in soon enough. My flesh is crawling.
