Jimmy Akin unspins the media spin on F1's "support" for same-sex civil unions. . .
Now that he’s been elected pope, some are trying to spin this as evidence of him being “flexible” on the issue and open to “dialogue” on the subject and as “seeking compromise” and “reach[ing] out across the ideological spectrum”–all ostensibly being signs that he may propose the same thing as pope, presumably on a global scale.
[Of course, "open to dialogue," "flexible on the issue," etc. just means, "The failure to abandon your principles and embrace our leftist social engineering agenda means that you are closed to dialogue and inflexible, etc." This is a rhetorical move that plants support for marriage on the fringes of polite society. F1 is too smart to fall for that slimy move.]
The same voices have also been contrasting this approach with the inflexible approach of Pope Benedict.
[Another slimy, perfidious rhetorical move designed to pressure F1 into cashing in on the "reformist spirit" currently possessing the Church in order to radically upend the natural law. IOW, the message is: "Pope Francis, use the excitement behind the push for curial reform to bring about some doctrinal reform as well! If you don't, we will portray you as a right-wing nut the way we did BXVI."______________
