Letter to Elton John: Jesus Supports Traditional Marriage
LifeSite News Reports:
First of all, my apologies for not calling you 'sir,' but I'm an American and we don't really go in for all that nobility stuff over on this side of the pond. Don't fret, however; we still worship celebrities, which is why every single news site I read breathlessly reported your comments regarding Jesus, the Pope and the Catholic Church this week.
Let's start with this statement: "If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was. He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that is what the church should be about."
That leads me to my next point, which is that while I'm glad you think Pope Francis is "wonderful," I've a feeling you haven't the first clue who the pope is and what he actually believes. So here's a tip: If you want to know what Pope Francis believes, check out the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It's all in there. Once you've read that, tell us all again how "wonderful" Francis is & because that's what he believes - every word of it. Until you understand that, you don't understand the Papacy.
Bottom line, Elton: You're embarrassing yourself. Please leave the theology to the trained professionals. Pope Francis wouldn't presume to tell you how to write and perform music, so stop telling him how to run his Church.
