LifeSiteNews: Since the extraordinary synod on the family, we have entered a period of uncertainty and confusion over several “hot-button” issues: communion for divorced and “remarried” couples, a change of attitude towards homosexual unions and an apparent relaxing of attitudes towards non-married couples. Does your Eminence think that this confusion is already producing adverse effects among Catholics?
Cardinal Burke: Most certainly, it is. I hear it myself: I hear it from Catholics, I hear it from bishops. People are claiming now, for instance, that the Church has changed her teaching with regard to sexual relations outside of marriage, with regard to the intrinsic evil of homosexual acts. Or people who are within irregular matrimonial unions are demanding to receive Holy Communion, claiming that this is the will of the Holy Father. And we have astounding situations, like the declarations of the bishop of Antwerp with regard to homosexual acts, which go undisciplined, and so we can see that this confusion is spreading, really, in an alarming way. Read the rest....And pay special attention to this statement:
"Living in a state of grave sin is simply contrary to what the Church has always and everywhere taught."
Those living in adulterous or fornicating relationships or in same-sex situations are "living in as state of grave sin." No matter what good they do, they are in mortal sin and if they die in that unrepentant state THEY WILL GO TO HELL! They need to hear the truth. Jesus wants all to be saved, but he will not save us without our cooperation. If we will to reject him, he will accept our will in the matter. Pray for sinners. Fast for sinners. Sacrifice for sinners. Don't let anyone go to hell without having to wrench themselves away from your intercession.
