The Pope says Brazilian Catholic youth are fully informed about church teachings

Excerpt from the transcript
of the Pope’s airborne press conference,
on the plane back to Rome, from WYD 2013 in Brazil:

Patricia Zorzan: [a journalist]

“Speaking on behalf of the Brazilians. Society has changed, young people have changed and you see so many young people in Brazil. You did not mention abortion, marriage between persons of the same sex. In Brazil, a law was passed that extends the right to abortion and allowed marriage 
between persons of the same sex. Why did you not talk about this?”

Papa Francesco:

“The Church has already expressed this perfectly. It was not necessary to go back, as I have not even talked about fraud, deceit or other things on which the Church has a clear doctrine!”

Patricia Zorzan:

“But it is a topic that interests the young …”

Papa Francesco:

“Yes, but there was no need to talk about this, but the positive things that open the way to the boys. Is it not? In addition, young people know exactly what is the position of the Church!”

Editor’s note: True or false: “…young people know exactly what is the position of the Church!”

  1. “True or false: ‘…young people know exactly what is the position of the Church!'”

    True or false: Anybody can tell exactly what are the positions of the Church. (After all, the positions on the things that really matter never change, do they?).

    • Talk about Confusion…..How would any young Brazilian Catholic know FULLY the Church Teachings?
      What is the Actual Attendence Rate, of these Faithful Followers?
      How would they statistically KNOW? Does God tell the Bishops?
