Pope Francis used the first papal visit to Congress to warn against a range of issues, including income inequality and climate change, but he did not directly address abortion two days after Democrats blocked a late-term ban in the U.S. Senate.
The pope‚Äôs remarks came as part of a six-day swing through the United States that will end at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia this weekend. VIPs, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and 2016 presidential candidates Ben Carson and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, were on hand to hear the pope‚Äôs speech before he stepped onto the Speaker‚Äôs Balcony to greet thousands gathered on the Capitol‚Äôs West Lawn....
We have a mediator, and it is not the pope. Our ONE AND only mediator is our Lord and SaviorJesus Christ. We need not to confess our sins to this pope. He, and every pope after him, is only a normal average human being who sins just like the rest of the human race. To say that this man can forgive us our sins is BLASPHEMY. The only one I and my family will bow before is our God who is in heaven. THIS MAN IS NOT FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS.. No man but "Joshua" (Jesus) is just to forgive any man his sin. This 'Pope' did not shed his blood on a cross. This 'Pope' is not part of the Holy Trinity. With all this fact and truth that comes from TRUE CHRISTIANITY, this pope should ask for forgiveness and repent from this wicked fake life style , labeled "the victor of Christ". We Christians love the sinner but hate the sin!!!!! I say this with all love from God... And thank you Jesus, for being my true gift giver. Who's blood was, is and always will be only worthy of shedding to forgive not some but all sin in man...
The "vicar of christ" needs the true gospel shared with him, Marty. All Popes have been precursors to the final Antichrist and are men of sin like the final Man of sin. Catholicism is NOT Christianity.
He also skirted the sodomy issue, being extremely vague. So vague that representatives from their community applauded his speech afterwards. Too bad. What a perfect opportunity to set the record straight, but the idea of Purgatory and confession makes everything much less urgent and not so important.

if there was any doubt whether the position of pope as unbiblical or not; I present exhibit A, Pope Francis. His speeches are social gospel gobbly gook. He is pulling a Tetzel and trying to raise membership in his "church". When the Progressive/ Anti-Christ world loves you, what does that mean?
The men God sends preach of Christ, hirelings give ‚Äėfair‚Äô speeches
‚ÄúI, (Paul) was made a minister, ‚Ä¶ (to) preach ‚Ä¶ the unsearchable riches of Christ; ... To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God‚ÄĚ Eph 3
‚ÄúI beseech ‚Ä¶ mark them which ‚Ä¶ cause offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they ‚Ä¶ serve not our Lord Jesus Christ,... and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple‚ÄĚ Rom 16:18-19

I guess then conservative news media can get worked up if His Unholiness doesn't say something about abortion in Philadelphia. One of his main purpose is for coming to the United States was to attend the meeting concerning family matters being held in Philadelphia.
