Cardinal Jose Luiz Lacunza Maestrojuan, the president of the Panamanian Bishops’ Conference, and Rapporteur at the Synod of the Family suggested on October 5, 2015, during his alloted three minute speech, that the Law of Christ be overturned and the Church adapt a position on divorce following Moses. The Cardinal was quoted by Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki (translated by Toronto Catholic Witness) as saying:
“Moses drew near to the people and gave way. Likewise today, the ‘hardness of hearts’ opposes God’s plan. Could Peter not be merciful like Moses”?
And then these blind guides and Pharisees (the real ones not the fake ones identified in current times) wonder why no one takes them seriously.
I can tell you, quite frankly and sadly, that episcopal “teaching” like this stops at my front door. And does not and will not enter. Whether priest, prophet, or Pope — it matters not to me. If it’s against the clear teaching of Jesus, then I don’t give a damn who you are or what colour of robe you wear.
