Bernie Sanders and the two moderates, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar as a matter of fact are not moderate in any way, shape, or form when it comes to the issue of abortion. They all support abortions up to birth, they all support forcing Americans to pay for abortions with their taxpayer dollars, and they all have refused to condemn Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for supporting infanticide.

The two questions we have waited to find what Francis would decree are (1) the ordination of married men, and (2) the ordination of female 'deaconesses' Francis did what was expected of him. He did not address the questions head on in his exhortation. As is his way, he left open the possibility through some ambiguous, tortured, and roundabout way. This is what he has done throughout his pontificate, most notably in Amoris Laetitia on the question of communion for divorced & remarried Catholics. Team Francis seems to agree. Ivereigh tweeted the exhortation closes off nothing, as have others. So, while the exhortation does not affirm that respected married men (viri probati) could or should be ordained as priests, for example, it does not reject the idea. Instead, at the outset of the apostolic exhortation Pope Francis "officially presents" the Amazon Synod's final document without quoting it in detail. By "officially presenting" the Synod's final document he promulgates its content which provides for the ordination of "viri probabti". Sneaky !!! Sneaky !!!

As John Paul II saw it, “If there is no ultimate truth to guide and direct political activity, then ideas and convictions can be easily manipulated for reasons of power.” As moral truths are ruled out, judgment turns on acts of brute will or the flexing of power.
