為何新教徒不應該支持教宗?

原刊於Patheos

The Pope has been widely lauded for his seemingly revolutionary statements, such as:

“Who am I to judge?”

“there is no Catholic God”

“when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person? We must always consider the person.”

“How I would like a church that is poor and for the poor”

“Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.”

But these missives are little more than symbolic gestures entirely devoid of meaningful and substantive change. They’re reminiscent of a slick politician who promises hope and change in order to please his constituency, but behind the scenes continues to conduct business as usual.

And the Catholic Church is a business, one with enormous power. In America, the Catholic Church has 74 million members, employs 1 million people and spends $170 billion yearly. And that’s just in the United States. World-wide there are some 1.2 billion Catholics and vast financial resources.
