    Evangelist Franklin Graham and leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention have responded to Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions, calling it “unthinkable in light of the Word of God” and explaining that no pope or priest gets to “define sexuality or the family.”

    “For Pope Francis to attempt to normalize homosexuality is to say that Holy Scriptures are false, that our sins really don’t matter, and that we can continue living in them,” Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote on Facebook.

    “If that were true, then Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection wouldn’t have been needed. The cross would have been for nothing. No one has the right or the authority to trivialize Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf,” Graham added.

    In a documentary, called “Francesco,” that premiered Wednesday in Rome, the pope says, “Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it,” the Catholic News Agency reported.

    And the Southern Baptist Convention's response matters to the Catholic Church because.... why?

    Don't they also argue that Baptism REQUIRES a confession of faith by the one being baptized, followed by FULL IMMERSION?

    Should the Catholic church agree with that too?
    Should I, as a Catholic, agree with that?

    Do you, as a Catholic, believe the Southern Baptist Convention is correct in their assessment of the Baptism requirement?

    Not sure why as I Catholic I'm being asked by anyone, especially another Catholic, to pay any attention to what the Southern Baptist convention says about my church?

    Oh please. What the pope says and does effects the whole of Christendom. Our witness is important. You obviously care because you took the time to comment. The Catholic Church does not live inside a bubble.

    No it doesn't exist in a Bubble.
    But to suggest that Catholics should look to the Southern Baptist Convention as authoritative in any way to the formulation or veracity of Catholic Doctrine, practice and beliefs, is a non starter (for this Catholic anyway).

    Nobody said this was authoritative. It’s authoritative the way you all talk about what the pope said from secular sources in other forums but it is a Christian pov so worth posting when you consider the witness of the pope.
