Are Pope Francis & Cupich Catholics or Dung Covered with Snow Lutherans?

Slideshow Cardinal Blase Cupich, in his latest column wrote: " The Holy Father’s core conviction about the resurrection of Jesus also helps us make sense of his urging not to judge others or become an obstacle by denying God’s grace to those whose lives are imperfect. The pope rightly believes that, as one who has broken down the barrier between time and eternity through his resurrection, Christ loves without limit or condition." "... For instance, like Pope Francis, he advocated for “the law of gradualness” when it comes to judgment in particular cases.

The Vatican spokesperson for the Pope, Greg Burke in a statement asserted that Pope Francis has been "in detail" informed about everything happening in China directly by the Secretariat of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin. The January 30 statement said: "[T]he Pope is in constant contact with his collaborators, in particular in the Secretariat of State, on Chinese issues, and is informed by them faithfully and in detail on the situation of the Catholic Church in China.” [ ] Is the Francis/Parolin action a sc
