Petrus Romanus Stands His Ground As Heresy Debate Divides Church And Threatens Schism

Pope Francis on Saturday reaffirmed the “primacy” of using one’s conscience to navigate tough moral questions in his first comments since he was publicly accused of spreading heresy and badly dividing the Catholic Church, with some commentators warning that it risked creating a schism given its opening to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics. Conservatives accused the pope of sowing confusion and undermining the church’s teaching on the indissolubility of marriage.

More recently, a group of traditionalist and conservative priests and scholars formally accused Francis of spreading heresy.
