Pope Francis Endorses Iran Nuclear Deal

A man of G-d endorsing peace. What a surprise http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/pope-iran-nuclear-deal_55f856e6e4b0c2077efc3c6f

WASHINGTON -- The Vatican endorsed the Iran nuclear accord Monday as a positive step towards its broader goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.

“We hope that the full implementation of will ensure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme under the and will be a definitive step toward greater stability and security in the region,” Archbishop Paul Gallagher, the Vatican's foreign minister, said in a statement delivered at the International Atomic Energy Association in Vienna.

“The way to resolve disputes and difficulties should always be that of dialogue and negotiation,” he said, a possible allusion to opponents of the nuclear agreement who have called for military strikes to destroy Iran’s nuclear sites.

Pope Francis’ vote of confidence for the Iran nuclear deal comes the week before he is scheduled to visit Washington, where he will address a joint session of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

1. Then he's an idiot

You'd think the pope would want to avoid war. This "deal", if you can even call t that, makes it inevitable. I don't know about you, but I'd like to avoid a whole region of the world going up under mushroom clouds.

3. Yeah, that whole doctrine of Papal Infallibility only ...

 

holds true when he's spouting what the RW wants to hear.
I wonder if Jesus realized that the Vicar of Christ would no longer be worthy of respect, or even consideration, the first time one political party and a coterie of anonymous internet yahoos decided to disagree with his teachings.

5. It remains what it has always been.

 

If you are a Catholic, it is the infallible word of the Vicar of Christ. It was so when you agreed with him, and it remains so when you disagree.
And you, your cute little flag, and your ROFL smilie are less pertinent to the discussion than you can possibly imagine.
But by all means, carry on. Troll for hides while continuing to expose your vast ignorance of Catholic doctrine. Perhaps someone else will step in to reply to your next vacuous response. I, however, find you boring and uninformed, so I will take my leave.

9. Actually I was raised a Roman Catholic and have had respect for

all the popes except the traitor aligned with the Nazi's and this pope is not the vicar of Christ this is a socialist puppet.
The Vatican will not put up much longer with him as the rumblings are already growing,don't be surprised if he goes the way of that pope that died after like a week
Btw I rarely get hides last one probably 4 months ago or so.

6. Doesn't apply

This is not the Pope speaking Ex Cathedra...


So infallibility is not in play..

Who cares what a man rich as Croesus has to say anyway.

8. You attacked poor Dexter on his lack of knowledge of Catholic Dogma

And yet are throwing about specific terms that have very specific meanings, and doing it from a place of ignorance.

10. "Poor Dexter", will doubtless, without reading any portion ...

 

of your post, claim vindication. But what to make of this, from your own link?

Infallibility belongs in a special way to the pope as head of the bishops (Matt. 16:17–19; John 21:15–17). As Vatican II remarked, it is a charism the pope "enjoys in virtue of his office, when, as the supreme shepherd and teacher of all the faithful, who confirms his brethren in their faith (Luke 22:32), he proclaims by a definitive act some doctrine of faith or morals. Therefore his definitions, of themselves, and not from the consent of the Church, are justly held irreformable, for they are pronounced with the assistance of the Holy Spirit, an assistance promised to him in blessed Peter."

If you disagree, take it up with Saint Peter or the Holy Father. But for the love of God, leave "poor Dexter" out of it.

on edit: And if you wish to witness abject ignorance of Catholic dogma, scroll up to post #9. The Lord apparently not only walks among us, but also posts on DI; letting we mortals know which of St. Peter's successors are actually worthy of acknowledgement. If that's the garbage you wish to defend, I'll leave you to it.
Have a pleasant evening.

12. Again he must speak Ex Cathedra

Or on immutable matters of doctrine and faith, his support of man's treaties and wars, would not be one of those instances.

The Church recognizes il Papa is but a man, unless directly guided by the Spiritus Sancti to speak from the Chair, a message to all the faithful... It's all very well covered by the Church in catechism.

14. This pope seems more beneficial to humanity

than most who have recently held the office.

However, saying the right thing in a speech is a small portion of doing the right thing.

All the words are window dressing unless and until people like Bush and Santorum are facing consequences for their pursuit of policies that go against their faith.
