VATICAN CITY, VATICAN - SEPTEMBER 10: Pope Francis greets the pilgrims during his weekly general audience in St Peter's square at the Vatican on September 10, 2014.

Assessment: During the same meeting, Pope Francis said that homosexual couples deserve pastoral support which is affirming of relationships based on sodomy. 

Pope Francis harshly criticized U.S. Catholic network EWTN and other like-minded Catholic news outlets who have raised concerns about his pontificate, declaring that their criticism is “the work of the devil.”

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s. clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15

The Pontiff voiced his disparaging remarks against the network founded by Mother Angelica during a meeting with fellow Jesuits in Slovakia last week.     

During the same meeting, the Pontiff said that while gender ideology is dangerous, homosexual couples deserve pastoral support which is affirming of relationships based on sodomy.

Gender ideology, the Pope said, “is abstract with respect to the concrete life of a person, as if a person could decide abstractly at will if and when to be a man or a woman.”

“Abstraction is always a problem for me. This has nothing to do with the homosexual issue, though,” he told the room full of Jesuits. “If there is a homosexual couple, we can do pastoral work with them, move forward in our encounter with Christ.” He made no mention of the gravely sinful nature of homosexuality.

Pope Francis says criticisms of him are diabolical ‘attacks’ on the Church
