Pope Francis’ support for same-sex unions is being openly criticized by several Roman Catholic leaders in America– who say his recently revealed pro-gay remarks cause “confusion and error” and fly in the face of church teachings.

Cardinal Raymond Burke, a frequent critic of Francis, said the pope’s comments should be “rightly interpreted as simple private opinions of the person who made them.”

“Such declarations generate great bewilderment and cause confusion and error among Catholic faithful,” Burke, a member of the Vatican’s highest court, said in a statement Thursday on his website.

He added that Francis’ views were contrary to Catholic teachings.

Vatican Renews Secret Accord With Beijing Regarding Bishops Despite China’s Religious Persecution

(CNSNews.com) – Weeks after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appealed to the Vatican to speak out against religious persecution in China, the Holy See on Thursday announced a two-year extension of its controversial secret 2018 agreement with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) dealing with how Catholic bishops serving there are appointed.

Pompeo warned last month that if the Vatican renews the deal it “endangers its moral authority.”

Defending the decision in the face of criticism from those who view the accord as a sellout of faithful “underground” Catholics, the official Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano said the agreement is a “pastoral” one.

It quoted Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin as having said in a speech early this month that some “misunderstandings” had arisen about the nature of the agreement, with some attributing to it links with unrelated “political issues.”:snip:
