We have already written about the diabolical logic (or sophism). We explained how the modernists do not use logic, but sophism (cunning fabrication) and based on false premises, they reach false conclusions in order to deceive people. That is why sophism can rightly be called diabolical logic.
Declaration Fiducia supplicans, published on 18 December 2023 right before Christmas, in which the possibility of blessing same-sex couples and couples in irregular relationships is opened, is another example of sophism. Of course, many recognized it immediately, and it is no wonder that it caused a real storm among the faithful and discord among the bishops. Just a few days after the Declaration had been published, the bishops of the Archdiocese of St. Mary in Astana (Kazakhstan), the bishops’ conference of Benin, Ghana, Cameroon, Madagascar, Hungary, Malawi, Nigeria, Poland, Rwanda, Togo, Ukraine and Zambia, rejected this declaration completely. The British Brotherhood of Catholic Clergy, which has over 500 members, signed a statement saying, among other things: “We believe that genuine charity always follows true doctrine and that such blessings would work against the legitimate care a priest owes to his flock… such blessings are pastorally and practically inadmissible.”
After the publication of the Declaration, many claimed that it did not allow the blessing of same-sex couples but of same-sex persons. Therefore, first we need to see what exactly is written in the Declaration. In paragraph 31 it is explicitly stated: “Within the horizon outlined here appears the possibility of blessing for couples in irregular situations and for couples of the same sex.” Therefore, a COUPLE of the same sex is blessed, not a person of the same sex. It’s clear to everyone, even to a grandma who doesn’t even have four grades of elementary school, what the word “couple” in this context means. Everyone knows that “couple” is a term for a pseudo-marriage, i.e. a union in which an unmarried man and woman, or in the case of people of the same sex, two men, have sexual relations. Therefore, the same-sex pseudo-marriage is blessed, not the same-sex person.
