Cardinal Marx, The Multi-Faith Guy
Cardinal Marx asks God to listen to the prayers of Infidels.
One wonders how far Catholicism is from the mind of these people. The first thing that a Cardinal – or any Christian – should ask concerning Muslims is that God may give them the grace of conversion. The second, third and fourth too.
The idea that an infidel should pray and a Catholic – a Cardinal at that – should ask God to listen to those who deny the Son and the Holy Ghost (thus also clearly disfiguring the Father) would be ridiculous if it wasn't deeply offensive to Christian thinking.
The Cardinal is here simply saying that God should listen to infidels irrespective of their infidelity. At this point, why not ask God to listen to atheists? At this point, what value does it have to believe in Christ? At this point, what prevents this man from asking Luther's intercession – he certainly believes him in heaven – for whatever pet project Catdinal Marx has?
The entire meaning of being a Christian, and more specifically a Catholic, is being reneged. The problem of not being it is being willingly ignored. One is clearly proposed an image of the world in which what is important is to believe in something wordly like peace, social justice, and the like; a world in which salvation is a recompense for fuzzy feelings. One who talks in this way is not even Christian anymore: he is a multi-faith guy supporting any religious feeling – nay, any allegedly good intention – whatsoever.
Who made this man a bishop and a Cardinal? Oh wait, it wasn't Francis!
The rot has been growing for a long time before Francis. It nourished itself on rubbish like Assisi, and an overdose of fuzzy feelings. It was multi faith propaganda way before Francis appeared on the balcony in St Peter.
We are now only witnessing the explosion of the bubo.
