After a 7-month hiatus, we finally have a new episode of the 1P5 minute to share with you!
Today we talk about where we’ve been, and the Joint Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together Pope Francis just signed, saying that God willed the “pluralism and the diversity of religions.”
We hope you enjoy it!
I’m Steve Skojec and THIS is the One Peter Five Minute
Today is Tuesday, February 5th, and I’d like to welcome you all back to the show.
It’s been a whopping SEVEN MONTHS since the last One Peter Five minute.
The reason for that is that we’ve had no place to set up a studio.
We’re finally getting setted into our new digs, but space is tighter than we’d like, so bringing back this old set may only be temporary.
I’m basically trapped in my office right now. That’s the way out.
So just be warned, we’ll probably be experimenting a bit with setup and format to make production setup less of a hassle.
Because if it’s less of a hassle…you know. More shows.
Now, let’s talk about news.
The big story right now comes out of the pope’s trip to the United Arab Emirates to sign a joint document with Muslims on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.
That’s actually the title of the document. It’s not a John Lennon song.
There’s a paragraph in the document that has people in an uproar, and I’m going to read it to you right now, so you can be in an uproar too:
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept…
Clearly, this is different than Church teaching in a number of places, but also divine revelation.
There was this guy named Jesus.
You might have heard of him?
He said, “”I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
We’ve talked before about the religious indifferentism of Pope Francis, as well as his penchant for Heresy.
So none of this should come as any surprise.
What IS a little surprising is that there are still some Catholic commentators out there trying to spin this one into an orthodox context. Indiana Jones didn’t look as hard for the holy grail as these guys look for a way to explain Francis away.
And in the end, THEY HAVE CHOSEN…POORLY.
There’s bound to be a lot more cringeworthy moments out of the UAE trip, so stay tuned to 1P5 for coverage of any doozies.
Until next time, I’m Steve Skojec, thanks for watching.
Thanks for watching the 1P5 Minute. We’ll see you next time.
