"The Holy See is the universal government of the Catholic Church and operates from Vatican City State, a sovereign, independent territory. The Pope is the ruler of both Vatican City State and the Holy See. The Holy See, as the supreme body of government of the Catholic Church, is a sovereign juridical entity under international law. The United States and the Holy See consult and cooperate on international issues of mutual interest, including human rights, peace and conflict prevention, poverty eradication and development, environmental protection, and inter-religious understanding. Since his inauguration, Pope Francis has acted as a global advocate for human dignity and justice, placing particular emphasis on the moral imperative of caring for the poor and marginalized. The United States and the Holy See enjoy a positive relationship that serves to amplify a global message of peace, freedom, and justice. The United States and the Holy See work together on shared priorities, such as promoting religious freedom and combating human trafficking." (state.gov/u-s-relations)
"The last of the five points of Calvinism teaches that God preserves His people so they can never be lost. To put it simply, it means this: "Once you are saved, you are always saved."
God's Word is full of proof for this beautiful truth. And though many deny it, and tell you that you can be lost and saved many, many times, and therefore can never be sure of your salvation, the Bible says otherwise. Talking about His elect sheep, Jesus said: "And I give them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand" (John 10:28). See John 6:39, 17:2, 11,12; Romans 8:37-39; II Tim. 1:12; 4:18, etc. etc.
Some object to this doctrine because it supposedly makes men "carnally secure" in their salvation. That is, if I know nothing can make me go to hell once God has saved me, I will "live like the devil." There have been some who have used this beautiful truth as an excuse to live like the devil. But they are not Christians. Nor do they understand this truth. Because this truth also implies "PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS." Those who never fall away are saints. They are holy. And they are given power to live holy lives." (prca.org)

John; That means the Vatican is in control of the Supreme Court.
""Despite what certain activists would have people believe, legalising the self-identification of gender would have brought with it a swathe of problems...""
It is ridiculous that when the chemical, metabolic and scientific facts (existential)? show it is impossible; - That the so called "Legal" position can be changed. Are we now going to stick to reality???

Sadly the problem in the United Kingdom of Sodom and Gomorrah is that there is NO free speech nor freedom of religion in this satanic country.
Christians will be persecuted by the Reprobate bureaucracy of this nation, and as we have seen are indeed being persecuted for having normal moral standards.
OFSTED the civil servant run government agency for education is brain washing children in the abomination and compliance with its corruption of children and society.
GOD has taught:- Jude :7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them!"
‚Äú‚ÄĚauthorities who watch for ‚Äúreactionary thoughts‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúimproper remarks,‚ÄĚ ensuring students are not taught about democracy, religion, or exposed to any criticism of the regime. Schools in China are government-controlled, and therefore communist in ideology. ...‚Äú‚ÄĚ
Communism demonstrating its stalinesqe fear of freedom of speech, thinking and religion.
BIG BROTHER is alive and living in China.
They are an oppressed people living in a satanic despotic state.

Matt 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."

But John; In your next post you said quote:- "Francis is a total lunatic. I have no use for Francis"
Now you surely don't want a judge who is led by a "total lunatic" do you?
The choice of kamala Harris proved that the Democrat party are 'dead-icated' baby killers.
So this Supreme Justice choice will be all politics and no justice. All abortion and no ethics!!
For moral standards I hope they get a right wing judge.
By the Grace of God.
Psalm 74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily. 23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually."
"Barrett is a practicing Roman Catholic, meaning if appointed and confirmed to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat, six of the court's nine members will be observant Catholics. While a full-time faculty member at Notre Dame, Barrett was affiliated with Faculty for Life, a pro-life group at the school."

Of course it does!!

In Roman Catholic theology repentance is part of the larger theological concept of penance
Perhaps Francis just want to make friends and influence people instead of all this theological gibberish which is so confusing to the Vatican team.
Quote:- "Contrition is not only a moral virtue, but the Council of Trent defined that it is a "part", and even more, quasi materia, in the Sacrament of Penance. "The (quasi) matter of this sacrament consists of the acts of the penitent himself, namely, contrition, confession, and satisfaction. These, inasmuch as they are by God's institution required in the penitent for the integrity of the sacrament and for the full and perfect remission of sin, are for this reason called parts of penance." In consequence of this decree of Trent theologians teach that sorrow for sin must be in some sense sacramental." (Wiki)
But if you want to be a 'popular' pope - then you just ditch all this jargon and be "NICE" to UNpenitent sinners.
