Some Catholics are ticked off now due to the many concerned and even negative responses to "Aemoris Laetitia", Pope Francis' latest work on love and family. They claim that the whole text should be read and that there are some good points in it too. Well, my brothers and sisters in the faith, the thing is that in such a writing each paragraph needs to be able to stand alone, to explain itself and not need any further details. If people must read the whole text in order to get it, you did a very bad job as a writer. Furthermore, you cannot ask every Catholic to read the whole thing. Even if you do, however, it does not get any better. If you have a big pot of soup which tastes excellent and you put a spoonful of gasoline into it, you can pour it all away. The danger in erroneous teaching and heresy is that there is some truth to it. Like that, it runs under our radar and remains unrecognized as such. I rest my case: There are heretical teachings in this work and nobody has to or even should obey a Pope that leads you astray. Pope Francis needs to step back to prevent further damage for the Catholic Church.
