Pope Francis Attacks ‘Ideological Christians’ As ‘A Serious Illness’ For the Church

Post image for Pope Francis Attacks ‘Ideological Christians’ As ‘A Serious Illness’ For the Church

At a daily mass last week, Pope Francis I told Bishops and those who came to pray that the Church is suffering from a serious illness: “ideological Christians.” The 76-year old former Archbishop of Buenos Aires has been creating problems for many of America’s faithful, who are now being effectively castigated for their anti-Christian views, including their war on homosexuality.

At last Thursday’s mass, the Pope said that “when a Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost the faith: he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a disciple of this attitude of thought… For this reason Jesus said to them: ‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’ The knowledge of Jesus is transformed into an ideological and also moralistic knowledge, because these close the door with many requirements.”

“The faith becomes ideology and ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people, distances, distances the people and distances of the Church of the people,” Pope Francis I said. “But it is a serious illness, this of ideological Christians. It is an illness, but it is not new, eh?”

"The 76-year old former Archbishop of Buenos Aires has been creating problems for many of America’s faithful . . . ."

Actually, if we're to believe the polls (which have been pretty consistent over time), the pope is creating problems for the American bishops, not the laity — they don't listen to the bishops anyway.
