THE WORLD (Naked Departure) HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! That White Man up there in Rome, in his divine powers that only he and he alone possesses, has decided that if you aborted a baby, you shall be forgiven. So, if you’ve had regrets or nightmares since having that abortion, you can now rest assured — you are forgiven! Your right to have feelings or trepidations about those abortions you had or will have is now absolved. Come back to the church, dear ones, with your offerings (which have been really down recently)!
Next, according to my crystal ball, he will be forgiving all the priests who bulled or will bull the young altar boys.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Boomshakalaka! Naked Departure
THE STORY via CNN: Pope Francis has extended indefinitely the power of Catholic priests to forgive abortions, making the announcement in an apostolic letter released Monday. It continues a special dispensation granted last year for the duration of the Year of Mercy — which finished Sunday — which gave all priests, rather than just bishops, the power to absolve the sin of abortion. The announcement reiterates that the Church’s stance on abortion has not changed — it is still viewed as a “grave sin.” But it makes it easier for women who have had abortions to be absolved for their actions, and rejoin the Church. “I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life,” the Pope’s letter states. “In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father.” The letter continues: “May every priest, therefore, be a guide, support and comfort to penitents on this journey of special reconciliation. “I henceforth grant to all priests, in virtue of their ministry, the faculty to absolve those who have committed the sin of procured abortion.”
