Pope warns Catholic Church may fall ‘like a house of cards’ if it continues its obsession with abortion, gay marriage and contraception

The Catholic Church could fall ‘like a house of cards’ if it continues in its obsession with abortion, gay marriage and contraception, the pope has warned.

In a remarkable 12,000 word interview to mark six months in the church’s top job, Francis said he

was resolved to reform the church, which had a tendency to get caught up in ‘small minded things ‘.

He said: ‘We need to find a new balance otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall into a house of cards.’

‘It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time,’ he said.

‘We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.’

  1. Good on you Frankie you know. All religions that lose touch with the people that are mere buildings and real estate that fail to put people in touch with a relation ship with Jesus deserve to crumble.

    Religiosity is no substitute for deep conversion and spirituality and being in touch with a faith community. Nit picking and sniping one another over peccadilloes deserve this fate. By your fruits you will know them says Jesus.

    It takes a fearless leader to say it as it is. Good on you Frankie (Pope Francis)
