Human rights activist and author, comrade Paul Njoku, has urged African Catholic communities to ignore Pope Francis after he formally mandated priests to bless same-sex unions.

Recall that a new document on Monday, explained a radical change in Vatican policy by insisting that people seeking God’s love and mercy shouldn’t be subject to “an exhaustive moral analysis” to receive it.

Though, the latest development represents a significant departure from previous church teaching, which argued against blessing same-sex unions. When it comes to blessing same-sex relationships, the Pope believes priests should be flexible.

The document from the Vatican’s doctrine office elaborates on a letter Francis sent to two conservative cardinals that was published in October. In that preliminary response, Francis suggested such blessings could be offered under some circumstances if they didn’t confuse the ritual with the sacrament of marriage.

The Vatican said the church must shy away from “doctrinal or disciplinary schemes, especially when they lead to a narcissistic and authoritarian elitism whereby instead of evangelizing, one analyzes and classifies others, and instead of opening the door to grace, one exhausts his or her energies in inspecting and verifying.”

But speaking on this new church policy, activist Paul in a statement he made available to NewsBand Newspaper, said Pope Francis is nothing but an anti-christ.

He said since Pope Francis was elected in 2013, he has made concerted effort to persuade over 1.35 billion members of the Catholic fold to embrace LGBT people without considering moral doctrine.

While calling for the resignation of Pope Francis, Mr Paul urged African Catholic communities to ignore his same-sex marriage rhetoric.

Part of the statement reads, “Pope Francis is obviously a product of anti-christ for repeatedly promoting same sex blessings. He should be told that animals don’t even practice or promote gay practice. Since his election in 2013, he has recklessly tried to make the more than 1.35billion – member church more welcoming to LGBT people without considering moral doctrine

“He should resign as a Pope, confess to God with penance and repent. African Catholic communities should ignore his shameless philosophy and technicality on same sex practice as President Joe Biden has deeply influenced him without reservation.

“Jesus Christ did not bless and promote sin. If he did, Sodom won’t have been burnt up for this same issue. The Pope has demonstrated spiritual and physical weakness and it is unfortunate some healthy beings are standing in defense of this obvious abomination and blunder ignorantly promoted by the Pope.

“I see emerging of protestant catholic in coming days if actually they still want to answer church of God and not the other way round.”
