“An Australian Archbishop indicated on social media on Sunday that he does not want or have Jesus as King in his life.
Responding to a tweet stating that ‘Most people want Jesus as a consultant rather than a King,’ Archbishop Mark Coleridge remarked, ‘Not too sure I want (or have) him as either.’
Archbishop Coleridge has shown himself to be an ardent supporter of Pope Francis’ agenda for the Church. He stated in 2015 that the Catholic saying ‘love the sinner, hate the sin’ with reference to homosexuality no longer holds since the distinction ‘no longer communicates’ ‘in the real world’ where sexuality is ‘part of [your] entire being.’
He has also argued that using the word ‘adultery’ for remarried divorcees needs to end. He criticized the four dubia Cardinals in 2016 for searching for what he called ‘false clarity’ amid ‘shades of gray.’ In 2016 Coleridge’s archdiocese defended the staging of a sexually charged, explicitly anti-Christian ballet and fashion show in a Catholic church.”
