Do Pope John Paul II's Teachings say Francis "Rejects Redemption"?

- Updated December 12, 2019 Why is everyone surprised? Why would Francis believe Mary is the co-redemptrix if he according to Pope John Paul II apparently "rejects Redemption"? Francis's Amoris  Laetitia theology of conscience as the supreme tribunal  can, to some extent, be summed up as promoting  "the person who claims to have a 'right' to persist in evil-in any sin at all-and who thus rejects Redemption ... as it were an impenetrability of conscience." Many who follow  Amoris Laetitia may apparently be rejecting Redemption. Catholics who are open to the redefinition of “mercy” to mean the conscience is the supreme tribunal may cease to be Christians because they deny that the Incarnate God-man Jesus Christ died to save us from our sin. The conscience as supreme tribunal denies mercy because if there is no objective sin to be forgiven and one doesn’t have by grace the power to overcome sin then the cross of Christ is emptied of its power.
