The time has come to question whether Pope Francis is a liberal Protestant, a noted Anglican theologian said in a recent essay.
Orthodox Anglicans and other Protestants hoping to resist “the apostasies of liberal Christianity” have for decades counted on Rome and the Catholic Church for moral and theological support, said Gerald McDermott.
“Most of us recognized that we were really fighting the sexual revolution, which had co-opted and corrupted the Episcopal Church and its parent across the pond,” he wrote. “First it was the sanctity of life and euthanasia. Then it was homosexual practice. Now it is gay marriage and transgender ideology.”
