February 9, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One of Pope Francis’ closest advisors, and the leader of one of the most “liberal” Catholic hierarchies in the world, has denounced “traditional” young people for wanting “to be clear in their positions,” warning that it is a path to “terrorism.” In a related interview with the Jesuit magazine America, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the head of the German Bishops’ conference, applauded people in homosexual partnerships who want a “lifelong” relationship.

“I am astonished that most of our young people, and also Catholic homosexuals who are practicing, want a relationship that lasts forever,” Marx told America. “We must begin with the main points of the doctrine, to see the dream: the dream is to have a person say, a man and woman say, ‘You and you, forever. You and you, forever.’ And we as church say, ‘Yes, that’s absolutely OK. Your vision is right!’

“So we find the way. Then perhaps there is failure. They find the person, and it is not a great success. But life-long fidelity is right and good.”

He added, “The church says that a gay relationship is not on the same level as a relationship between a man and a woman. That is clear. But when they are faithful, when they are engaged for the poor, when they are working, it is not possible to say, ‘Everything you do, because you are a homosexual, is negative.’”

In his Stanford lecture, Cardinal Marx said, “I had a discussion with some of the students,” before the lecture, who asked him, “‘Cardinal is it true that the younger people are more traditional?’ And that’s true.”

“But that is not dangerous,” he said. “I have no problem with tradition. But we have also the tendencies that the people want to be clear in their positions. Black and white populism is growing in Europe. And that is the beginning, perhaps, of populism, of terrorism, that’s clear.”

“This whole pontificate has opened new paths. You can feel it. Here in the United States everybody is speaking about Francis, even people not belonging to the Catholic Church. I have to say: The pope is not the church. The church is more than the pope. But there is a new atmosphere,” the cardinal said.

  1. “The church says that a gay relationship is not on the same level as a relationship between a man and a woman.’

    What rubbish!
    A homosexual “relationship” is viewed by the church is inherently sinful. It is, in fact, called by Scripture an abomination.
    To look at it as being on a different level is a pathetic and disordered attempt to try and claim some sort of legitimacy for it.

    People like this cardinal are a disgrace and are Satan’s wolves in sheep’s clothing within the Church.

  2. “But we have also the tendencies that the people want to be clear in their positions….
    …..that is the beginning, perhaps, of populism, of terrorism, that’s clear.”

    Again, what rubbish!
    How dare this pathetic man equate the violent, brutal acts of a group like ISIS with the holy and devout prayerful life of young Catholics following their Faith.

    Cardinal Marx, you are a disgrace to the high office you hold. You are a wolf pretending to be a shepherd. You are an enemy of the Catholic Faith.

  3. To put it bluntly, Marx is a moronic idiot. Like most of his ilk !

  4. He attacks our children for their adherence to tradition while hiding behind his traditional Roman Catholic attire. Reinhard, you are the terrorist. You are the one seeking destruction. We see through your mask.
    A wolf in sheep’s clothing here.

  5. Shoot the bastard.

    Enough!

  6. St. Paul will answer this nincompoop with the following from II Thessalonians, Chapter 2, verse 14: “Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle”. Where do we get these jackasses?
