Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

I guess the Holy Father is not woke enough this week. Actually that is not the problem. The problem is the confused, inconsistent and sometimes incoherent ramblings coming out of the Vatican have everyone wondering just what the Church’s teaching is on faith and morals. No one is served by this. Not the faithful and not those these wishy washy, half baked, heterodox teachings where the over weaning motivation is to not give offense to the offenders rather than offer them salvation. Pope Francis does not like to be on the outs with the secular elites in show business and politics so it will be interesting, not to mention disappointing to see how he reacts to this criticism.

SIGN UP Iconic singer-songwriter Elton John blasted the Vatican for its headline-grabbing decree, approved by Pope Francis, that it will not bless same-sex unions since God “does not and cannot bless sin.” POLL: What scares you the most? But John also called out the Vatican for a hypocritical stance: How can the Vatican refuse to bless gay marriages because they “are sin”, yet happily make a profit from investing… https://t.co/8YlbVZrhaR — Elton John (@Elton John)1615824027.0 “How can the Vatican refuse to bless gay marriages because they ‘are sin,’ yet happily make a profit from investing millions in ‘Rocketman’ — a film which celebrates my finding happiness from my marriage to David [Furnish]??” John said in a Monday tweet that included a screenshot of a 2019 Daily Beast story, “How the Vatican Spent Millions on Elton John’s Biopic.” The outlet’s story said a financier connected to the Vatican spent $4.5 million on “Men in Black: International” and “Rocketman,” the latter of which was “the first studio movie to portray gay sex between men in an authentic way.” “While investing in mainstream entertainment is hardly sinful, the great contradiction is that the Catholic Church preaches to the devout that homosexuality is a sin,” the Daily Beast said. The Vatican at the time told the outlet that the expenditures were being investigated.
