The Vatican landed in hot water after a Pope confidant made this outrageous claim about Jesus

125

The Pope has been facing a lifetime’s worth of criticism for the way the Vatican has been dealing with issues like the sexual abuse claims against the Catholic Church.

But now the Vatican is receiving backlash like never before.

That’s because someone close to the Pope just made a claim that will leave you furious.

Austen Ivereigh, biographer for Pope Francis and founder of the Catholic organization “Catholic Voices,” recently took to Twitter to argue that gay priests having to “hide who they are” is an issue in the Vatican.

A Twitter user then replied to Ivereigh saying that Christ didn’t have homosexual tendencies so priests shouldn’t exhibit that either.

The Pope’s biographer then asked “Why do you say that our Lord did not have homosexual tendencies?” implying that Jesus did in fact have homosexual tendencies.

The Daily Wire reports:

According to LifeSiteNews, Ivereigh made his comments about the sexuality of Jesus on Twitter when discussing gay priests working in the Vatican. Ivereigh claimed that the Catholic Church refusing to allow these men to live openly with their identity makes the vow of chastity harder for them.

“The issue, as the priests make clear, isn’t celibacy and chastity, but having to hide who they are,” said Ivereigh. “The denial makes it impossible to live the vow in freedom. That’s what they’re saying.”

A Twitter user then replied to Ivereigh in Spanish, saying a priest should be heterosexual because he operates in “personal Christ” (in the persona of Christ). “They must serve God and his people without the entanglement of manifesting or hiding a hidden tendency,” said the Twitter user. “The priests, I believe, must be heterosexual. They act in persona Christi. And I do not think our Lord had homosexual tendencies.”

Ivereigh then questioned openly if the critic of his position is so sure that Jesus did not have homosexual tendencies. “Why do you say that our Lord did not have homosexual tendencies? From what signs or sayings or gestures do you deduce this?” asked Ivereigh.

This couldn’t have come at a worse time.

All eyes have been on the Pope and the Vatican as he recently invited 100 bishops to attend a summit to address the issue of sexual abuse.

Homosexual priests that commit sexual abuse have been an issue for the Catholic Church for decades.

So controversy on homosexuality in the Church isn’t what the Pope needed at this time.

The truth is that homosexuality has no place in true Catholicism.

But so-called “progressives” have been injecting their agenda into the Catholic church for decades now.

And trying to imply that Jesus had “homosexual tendencies” is disingenuous and blasphemous.

Christians of all backgrounds agree that Jesus did not have “homosexual tendencies.”

That claim only serves the purpose of trying to normalize homosexuality within the church.

Do you think Jesus had “homosexual tendencies?”

    • What is the matter with these people, that question should not even be asked, that is what is really wrong in this world today, questioning the Sanctity of the Lord and Christianity.

    • Well if you read the entire article you would know it was the Popes Biographer and he claims that Jesus has these tendencies and on top of that hes the “Popes” Biographer so its like he is saying its the position of the Vatican……The Pope is EVIL!!!

    • THE VERY QUESTION IS OFFENSIVE. OUR LORD JESUS IS GOD, WHOM DOES ANYONE THINK GOD IS? JESUS ID TRUE MAN AND TRUE GOD! HE IS COMPLETE, HE DOES NOT NEED SEX OF ANY KIND. PLEASE STOP OFFENDING OUR CREATOR AND OUR REDEEMER. REMEMBER THAT WE HAVE BEEN CREATED AT GOD’;S IMAGE, HENCE, PLEASE, STOP CREATING GOD AT HUMAN’S IMAGE!! ANYONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GOD, SHOULD LEAVE HIM ALONE AND NOT INSULT, NOR OFFEND HIM .IS THERE ANYTHING SACRED ANYMORE?

    • Ignore them, they want us Catholics to think that it’s okay to be a homosexual, lesbian, transgender ,bisexual and infulidity sexual…They’re trying to protect the priest, monks and friars..What do we know, about Pope Francis real reason why he joined the priesthood..Someone, is looking for trouble to aggravate the Roman Catholics…Don’t even read to listen to their crap..

      • I am in total agreement with you Dawn. i can’t even believe that something like this ever raised it’s ugly head. We were taught in grade school that the Pope is infallible in matters concerning Catholic teachings but I must admit that I have my doubts about Pope Francis and his liberal ways.

    • I don’t subscribe to any social media, but I still must respond to this latest blaspheme of the Catholic Church, the Harlot in the book of Revelation. There are at least two Scriptures in the Holy Bible indicating that homosexuality is absolutely forbidden by Almighty God, God not only being God the Father, but also God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The grievous misunderstandings of the Catholic Church and the Pope is founded in that THEY KNOW NOT THE HOLY BIBLE. THEY PROFESS THEIR TRADITIONS OVER AND ABOVE GOD’S HOLY WORD.

  1. No, Jesus DID NOT HAVE HOMOSEXUAL tendencies, the people that say Jesus did are only trying to support a sin stated in Holy Scripture.

    • Leviticus 20:13 New Living Translation (NLT)
      13 “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.

      Jesus is the Son of God. Do you think this scripture would condemn homosexuality if Jesus has gay tendencies? NO, Of course not!

    • Jesus was and is perfect. The Bible says homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
      Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

      • Again Satan’s LBGTQ has supporters and people like Austen Ivereigh to interject in the summit the sinful thoughts about Jesus. He should had been kicked out of the summit. Homosexuals, pedophiles and lesbians would love to have the Catholic church to accept their sinful behavior while serving in the church. The Bible is very clear of the sinful of the LGBTQ then and today.
        Gen. 9:1 & 7
        God instructs those who love Him to be holy, for He is holy (Lev. 20:7)
        Homosexuality, like all sin, separates people from God (Rom. 1: 26-27)
        Deuteronomy 23:2
        No one born of a forbidden marriage nor any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, even down to the tenth generation
        1 Corinthians 6:9 (King James Version)
        9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
        1 Corinthians 6:9 (New King James Version)
        9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,] nor sodomites

  2. Jesus had a very short time on earth and a lot to do within that time frame in a lot of places throughout the world (even American Indians have stories about his visit to them) – so, no, I do not think he was a homosexual. And at the same time, I do not think he was a heterosexual. I think he was something none of us on earth will ever fully understand as long as we’re alive.

    • The Lord said only the “half has been told”, I guess we don’t get the full story until we reach the other side.
      Please read the Bible. The Lord was against “sodomy”. In the beginning, He created man & woman and they were to procreate. He put two animals of each kind on the Ark, male & female. Why didn’t he put just male or female? Think about it. Come on, it doesn’t take a “rocket scientist”. HE gave all the answers in HIS Word but so many don’t read it and, if they do, don’t believe it. What more can I say?

    • Perhaps the one person now being held accountable for those blasfamous statements is not Christian or truly Catholic. But the remaining Catholics are, certainly, Christian!!!!!!!

    • Don, even though I am Catholic, I am starting to agree with you. It is becoming harder each day to stomach the Catholic Church from Rome and the “priests” and “nuns” that appear as perverts. Also, those in politics that state they “are Catholics” make me sick. I may be throwing my eternal life away, but each day I just ask God that when I die please send me in the opposite direction of some of these Catholics. Those that support killing of a baby in the womb, and now out of the womb. How can they be the true people in this world. If they are, then I am screwed.

    • Don that’s stupid. Catholics were the first Christians- the rest of you are not real Christians because you tend to be rednecks, liars, thieves and immoral people.

      • New Testament Christians were not Catholics. Catholic unique dogma began with the Emperor Constanine and Athanasius: Educate yourself

        TinyURL.com/EarlyChristianityVideo

        Even Constantine’s son, Constantine II believed in a tripartite Godhead and rejected the “consubstantial” Trinity.

      • Sorry DUDE, The REAL first Christians were not Christians, but HIS Followers and Disciples. Rome and the Romans coined the term “Christian”,
        Jesus asked for Followers, not Christians.

        If you are defending a church and four walls, a man “god on earth” a Bible a Doctrine put together and consecrated by religious rituals, you are doing it wrong.

        You should be defending the Faith, the Word, HIS Testament. Modern-day so-called Christians have become the new Pharisees.

    • Don, Catholicism IS Christian. Don’t deny the faith just because many have abused it. Many teachers have been found guilty of abusing children, but this does not mean we should not teach our children, or deny good teachers. Many of the hierarchy in the catholic church have tried for millennia to ‘change’ the church to their own liking. They are at fault, not the church or the faith.

  3. Of course, Jesus LOVED everyone, but the Bible states that “man shall not lay with man.” [or words to the same end.] and I believe that our Lord was NOT homosexual.
    This is one of the many falsehoods put forth by those with evil intentions – those that must be fought! Christians, of which Catholics are a part, MUST remain steadfast in their/our faith. SPEAK UP & SPEAK OUT in support of your/our faith. Be not Afraid!

    • No, Jesus, God, does not love everyone. John 10:11,14, 26-30. Ps 5:5 God says that He hates the workers of iniquity, but before the foundation (Eph. first chapter) of the world, He chose out a people (some Jews, Some gentiles) for Himself. He is the Creator, and has every right to do what He wills with His creation (Roman 9).I know that this is going to cause a lot flack, but this is the truth of God’s word. I could go on and on but, I do better talking to people, than writing.
      ,

      • For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that WHOSOEVER believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
        John 3:16

  4. This was not an issue ever addressed in the New Testament. I think Priests should marry to help get rid of this problem. No matter what your sexual orientation, you should not bother others with it, especially not children.
    Unfortunately these problems exist in and are heard from occasionally in all churches.

  5. Tengan un poco de respeto por la Iglesia Católica, o estarán Uds. cayendo en los mismos patrones de toda la prensa sensacionalista. El problema lo está enfrentando el Papa, como debe ser de frente y con el consejo de todos los cardenales. No me obliguen a bloquear este espacio. Saludos.

  6. I know many Catholics who are very displeased with this Pope and after these comments from his biographer, which were made with complete arrogance, I can see the universal church starting to crumble. The only thing that will save the church is for this pope to resign and they get a new one, who is truly conservative and a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
    What scares me most about this Pope is the company he has been keeping the the alignment he is forming with non-christian religions in an attempt to be “tolerant and accepting”. The one world order is designed for one religion and it would appear that is what he is attempting to organize.

    • I agree with the opinion that this pope needs to resign and a new pope be elected. This pope has done more harm to the Catholic Church than anti Catholics. The idea that Jesus had homosexual tendencies is ludicrous and sacriligious This is what the hierarchy of the church believes? Where is the scripture to support it. It is trying to justify the sins of some gay priests by making this implication. They will stand in judgment for this. This pope is way to liberal for me.

    • The Catholic Church was established by Jesus Christ when He told Peter that he was rock and upon this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. The Catholic Church has been around for over 2000 years and was created by Jesus. All other churches are man made.

  7. They are allowed to do whatever they want. Just don’t become a priest or nun if you want to marry. But that wouldn’t solve anything if they think they are homosexuals. Just be pushing their garbage on to some innocent man or woman. Just leave the Church….enough problems in this world without this junk.

  8. Just because his Apostles all claimed to be celebrated and completely heterosexual does not anyone find it very peculiar that you had a bunch of men always traveling together with rarely any women present?

    • Crain Vandertie— celebrated? How freakin dumb are you? It’s celibate and the Apostles didn’t have to claim they were because they were married. The church decided to make up that rule for the reason I stated earlier.
      It was all about money- as usual.

    • Jesus Christ gave the esoteric aspects of Christianity to the twelve Apostles and seven women during the forty days following his Resurrection:
      TinyURL.com/EarlyChristianityVideo
      Women were a valued part of New Testament Christianity. They had administrative responsibilities in these ordinances equal to men.

  9. Christ was sinless so neither homosexual or heterosexual the perfect sacrifice, he loves all sinners but sin is sin. That’s the problem with religion they push their agenda.

  10. First they suggest that Mary is His lover. Then Mormon’s suggest she was one of his wives. Now they hint He had homosexual desires. I can only guess where they will go next. Gluttons called his a gluttons man and a winebibber. Some called Him a Samaritan. Some said he had a demon. It is true he was made like unto men but that is not to say that he had the weakness of all men. Anything to lower Him to our standard so that we can excuse ourselves. Next they will say He had pedophile desires or that he did not know for sure what gender he was. These suspicions say more about the blasphemers than it does about our precious Lord.

  11. This article is a poor one indeed for it comments:- “So controversy on homosexuality in the Church isn’t what the Pope needed at this time” when in actual fact THIS IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR HOMOSEXUALITY TO BE AIRED IN THE CHURCH.
    While the Bishops are pondering on the awful catastrophe of sexual abuse in The Church of Christ, one of the realities of the problem – homosexuality – might be ignored when it is the crux of the problem and needs to be totally considered and powerful action taken.
    This is deceptive in that it tries to undermine Pope Francis in the eyes of the reader when it should be promoting his efforts to rid The Church of sexual abuse.
    And to raise the possibility that Jesus may be pro-homosexual is quite irrelevant and injurious to the hopes of everyone that The Church firmly rejects sexual abuse of any kind especially that arising because of homosexuality in the Priesthood.

  12. Jesus was not a homosexual. But he does forgive those who are. He won’t forgive blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. In easy terms, he won’t forgive non believers in the Holy Spirit. Matthew 12:31,32

  13. The Catholic church is a vehicle to salvation filled with Christians and non-Christians. All denominations have
    poorly informed members that don’t know or read their Bible and that leads to ignorance of the word of God.
    Catholics say the Nicene creed at every mass that professes Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and that he is the Son of God. After professing this belief thousands of times all Catholics should know the word of God and believe it but many don’t even take what they are professing to and receive it in their heart. This is the seed that falls on shallow ground.

  14. We know Jesus was without sin and was pure the bible does not give us the right to condemn and or judge. Everyone will stand before God to answer for all of our sins. There are many bible verses to give us guidance here are 7 out of many. remember do not add or subtract from the words in the bible.

    1 Corinthians 7:2 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.
    1 Corinthians 6: 9 – 11 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neitherfornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind
    1 Corinthians 6:17-20 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
    18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.
    19Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
    20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

    1 Timothy 1:8-11 8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

    Jude 1:5-8 5 Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe.
    6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire

  15. I do believe the BIBLE has something to say about that, READ IT. Why was Sodom destroyed, because of the evil including homosexuality. God says it is against his laws. He made man and woman and were to procreate, same sexes can’t do that. They can adopt or have a woman have a child for them or other methods that are available. Why would Jesus go against the Fathers will? He wouldn’t, therefore it is foolish to think or believe such a statement.

  16. Disputing the unknowable…there are better things to do
    than to waste time on this folly. There are better and more
    valuable activities in life.

  17. Jesus was and is perfect. The Bible says homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
    Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

  18. I have been reading these comments about the Catholic Church. Those of you who are participating seem to know more about the Catholic church than I do. I’m 72. I’m a non-denominational, born-again, Bible believing Christian. I have never considered Catholics to be saved Christians. Why? Because they bow down to Mary (we’re not to do that), rosary beads and hail Mary’s when we pray or sin are not mentioned in my Bible. Nothing will ever convince me that any Pope is “God on earth.” They baptize babies who are too young to even know what it’s all about (I don’t find that in my Bible). They “cross themselves” with their hands (I’ve not read of that in my Bible), I’m unsure why a person would confess their sins to a priest when they can go directly to God to repent and receive forgiveness. The Catholic Church has much mystery and many secrets (my Bible says to share the good news). I am very perplexed to understand how a Catholic is saved? I’m old. I have Dementia. I mean to cause NO dissent or nasty remarks. I believe I have been quite honest and polite. But I would like to know how/why Catholics feel they are saved Christians. Thank you for listening.

  19. Are you forgetting that God himself in a human image, Jesus, came as human to save us from just that kind of blasphemy. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost! Get it. One God, the trinity. Stop the crap, we have a big enough problem without idiots trying to make excuses and manufacturing absurd theories. Bless of father in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit

  20. Man, This so-called Biographer is a real evil person if he thinks that our Lord and Saviour is a homo. Way back in Jesus days when they would call someone GAY meant that they were HAPPY and that’s all. These very sick evil people of today are twisting the Bibles words around to fit their homosexual agendas. That is and has been what is going on today. Christ was not homosexual because he is the sone of God and he knew very well that it is against his father’s Commandments and it is evil.

  21. I’m not a Catholic, but it’s sad the Pope has to suffer this sort of blasphemy. He has enough problems as it is. As for Jesus having gay tendencies …well fully Man AND fully God certainly defies such ridiculous prattle.

  22. THE big problem is HUMANITY it is prone to incredible foolishness as in LEFTIE THINK.
    The decades I have witnessed show the mess in the world created by LEFTIES, the church has not been IMMUNE!

  23. Since GOD set up marriage between a man and a woman as the natural order of things, did the Catholic Church not set its self up for problems when they let Pope Gregory decree Priest could not marry? Many scholars determined that Gregory himself was likely gay,which would given him vast possibilities within the church.

  24. Having homosexual tendencies is not a sin. Acting on them is. From all we know, Jesus was asexual; that is, He was neither hoko- or hetero- sexual. He was not a sexual being. The same should be true of our modern priests and other clericals. When they take vows of chastity, they vow to abstain from all sexual activity – both homo and hetero. Thus it does not matted what their orientation is..

  25. There is NOTHING HOLY about what they call the Holy Roman Catholic Church. There are many Catholics who are saved and many who are not. The ones believing ANOTHER Gospel of the Church saving anyone, who believe in praying to anyone other than God the Father and believe that the Pope is the vicar of Christ need real help. Those teaching are heretical, as that church shows they lost their first love.
    I was raised a Catholic, even had a Catholic Irish Bishop in our family tree.
    Jesus said – JESUS SAID: “To be BORN AGAIN”, despite what you were predisposed to in your mind, you must turn, repent and remove sin in the camp.
    Hell hath no fury like hiding as a Man of God and being a wolf.

  26. 2 Timothy
    Chapter 3
    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

  27. Starting with progressive Pope John XXIII, the leftist trend of the Catholic Church has made it much more difficult for the Church to recruit Godly candidates for the priesthood. So, in order to compensate, it seems the Church has very much relaxed necessary due diligence background checks on recruiting candidates for the priesthood. Meanwhile, seeing this lapse, homosexuals have, so to speak, flocked to become priests as one of the best circumstances for them to practice their pedophilia instincts in in a protected socio/religious environment without, at least until the recent “me to” victims’ coalition has begun, very limited chances of discovery and culpability. Promises Made – Promises Kept – GO TRUMP 2020!!!
    Semper Fi!

  28. It’s simple: the Catholic Church is corrupt, it’s always been corrupt–THAT’S why the PROTESTANT movement started: protesting the errors of Carholicism.

    Could there be ANY doubt anymore? Pedophile priests, now this! They want to normalize their own perversion.

  29. The Cardinals who elected Pope Francis must have had suicidal tendencies. Pope Francis has gone out of his way to damage the Church and little to help it grow or prosper. That the Church can survive this Pope is testimony to the strength and longevity of the Church.

  30. Maybe he was just being Jesuitical. Perhaps, he was not suggesting that Jesus was homosexual but only stating that the interlocutor’s statement had no foundation. Think about it. Jesus is the Son of God. How base it is of us to even think His Divinity had any sexual inclinations at all despite His assumption of a human body and life? I am one inclined to think that Christ’s mission was not to be concerned about human sexuality at least in the form of HIS DIVINE SELF.

  31. This forum does contain some valid presentations, but a high percentage are variously erroneous to completely absurd . Only ONE Church was established by Christ … The one and only ..Church .. with ancient and seamless apostolic authenticity is comprised of various Pariarchates Jerusalem , Alexandria , Constantinople etc.. these are Eastern Orthodox components. The Patriartchate of Rome- is more widely known as the Roman Catholic . Priestly celibacy is not a scriptual dictat ..but rather a policy of Rome that can be changed at the drop of a hat by the Pope . Such a policy does not exist in the Eastern Orthodox wings …nor Eastarn Uniat rites ( eg Maronite , Byzantine , etc.)
    The level of ignorance of some posters must be forgiven because they are simply misinformed .. The blind led by the blind …Pax Domino Vobiscum

  32. Why is it that Some Priest are allowed to marry? However, Roman Catholic Priests are not allowed to marry!
    Some of the APOSTLES WERE MARRIED.

    It is just like some people saying “There is no Catholic Divorce”.
    There always has been divorce, it is called ANNULMENT! Again, just another loophole in CONTROL and money.
    If the Vatican and Pope does not soon Wake up and do what is right, the Catholic Church will continue to destroy itself from within. By the way, before you jump all over me, I AM CATHOLIC!
