VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis met today with a large delegation from pro-LGBT accounting and professional services group Deloitte, urging them to promote “diversity” and “inclusion” in all areas of life, as the world proceeds along a new “emerging paradigm.”
Addressing the large group, which included the company’s CEO Punit Renjen, in the Vatican’s Paul VI audience hall, Pope Francis urged those assembled to work for “a more humane, just and fraternal world.”
A key aspect of this would be to “enhance diversity,” said Francis, employing economical phraseology to argue for “economic ‘ecosystems’.”
In completely avoiding any mention of Christianity, or of God, as noted by Vatican journalist Ed Pentin, Pope Francis also managed to avoid any condemnation of the company’s promotion of the LGBT movement.
Pope Francis wants to “reorient our way of living” toward an inclusive, pro-LGBT, pro-abortionist church.
We will not follow. We will stay with our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Instead, referencing economic crises, the “effects of climate change” and the need to care for “our common home,” Francis urged the pro-LGBT group to play a role in forging a new order in society. Drawing from language commonly employed by LGBT advocates, Francis said that this would be based on “inclusion, moderation, care and wellbeing.”
My hope is that you can assist organizations to respond to this call. You have the right skills to cooperate in building that necessary bridge between the current economic paradigm – based on excessive consumption and which is experiencing its final phase – and the emerging paradigm centered on inclusion, moderation, care and wellbeing.
The delegates were told to “cooperate in reorienting our way of living on this our planet, which we have damaged in terms of both the climate and inequality.”
Deloitte makes no secret about its prominent promotion of LGBT ideology. “Pride is not something we show just once a year at Deloitte – it’s part of our culture, allowing everyone to bring their whole selves to work every day,” the company states.
In a special section of the company website, Deloitte states “For our LGBT+ colleagues it means knowing that they will be seen and heard as their true authentic selves—valued, and appreciated for all that they are and what they contribute to Deloitte’s Purpose to make an impact that matters.”
The company is currently conducting a social media campaign entitled “#QueerAllYear” which it says is in response to its perceived lack of requisite attention on the LGBT movement outside of “Pride month.” The campaign notes:
But what about the rest of the year? When the confetti is swept up and flags put away – how do we keep the spotlight on helping LGBT+ friends, family, and colleagues feel seen, valued and included?
***MAJOR UPDATE, November 10, 2022*** LifeSiteNews reported the bombshell statement issued by Archbishop Viganò, declaring that members of the “Bergoglian church” are no longer in union with the Church of Christ.
According to Archbishop Viganò:
the visible church, to which the world gives the name of Catholic Church and of which it considers Bergoglio as Pope, is no longer Church...
This statement was long overdue, and Archbishop Viganò is finally sounding the alarm — Pope Francis is leading the Church into something radically different than the Church established by Christ. Pope Francis cannot continue betraying the faithful by abdicating his duty as Universal Shepherd.
The time to redouble our efforts and fervently request that Pope Francis repent and be reconciled with the Church is NOW.
SIGN and SHARE. Defend the Church and demand that Pope Francis faithfully uphold the authentic Catholic faith!
Bishops from across the world have raised concern over Pope Francis' unfaithfulness to the 2,000+ years of Catholic teaching, and the recent statement by Archbishop Viganò is truly the breaking point into a new era for faithful Catholics.
READ THE FULL STATEMENT FROM LIFESITENEWS AND SIGN THIS PETITION TO DEFEND THE CHURCH NOW.
Bishop Joseph Strickland, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Fr. James Altman, and two dozen more faithful Catholic priests & scholars are publicly calling out Pope Francis for his outrageous, dangerous, and heretical teaching concerning reception of Holy Communion.
Pope Francis stated that "faith" is the only requirement for those who wish to receive Holy Communion in his June 29 Apostolic Letter on the liturgy, Desiderio desideravi.
This statement is dangerous because:
- The Council of Trent explicitly anathematized those who make this claim calling it 'heresy'
- Pope Francis omitted the essential step of repentance for sin to worthily receive the Eucharist.
- Pope Francis is thereby allowing the faithful to eat and drink condemnation on themselves, should they receive Holy Communion unworthily
- Pope Francis is supporting moral relativism, eradicating the clear distinction between good and evil
- Pope Francis is eradicating the need for the Sacrament of Confession
- Pope Francis is damaging the teaching office of the Church by sowing doubt and division among faithful Catholics
But there is a way to stop Pope Francis' modernist attack and defend the true Catholic teaching on Holy Communion.
Catholics everywhere must renounce Pope Francis' heresy and uphold the truth: only Baptized Catholics in the state of grace, and therefore free of mortal sin, can receive Holy Communion*.
For those in mortal sin, repentance and absolution must first be sought in the Sacrament of Confession before receiving the Eucharist*.
Pope Francis' statement would mislead many souls, which is why we need your help today to stand with Bishop Strickland, Fr. Altman, Bishop Schneider, and more.
TELL POPE FRANCIS: HOLY COMMUNION CAN ONLY BE RECEIVED IN THE STATE OF GRACE!
The growing list of faithful Catholics who are standing for the truth and bravely resisting Pope Francis' attempt to dilute the Church's moral authority is only growing. This is great news, but the news can't simply stop with you.
You must join the growing list of supporters to but a STOP to Pope Francis' heresy.
WATCH: LifeSiteNews' co-CEO and Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen, fully breaks down the growing list of faithful Catholics choosing to resist Pope Francis' attack on the faith.
Stand with these faithful Catholics: Bishop Joseph E. Strickland, Bishop André Gracida, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Bishop Robert Mutsaerts, Father Gerald E. Murray, Father James Altman, Father John Lovell, Professor Claudio Pierantoni, Dr. John Lamont, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, Professor Anna Silvas, Dr. Anthony Esolen, Professor John Rist, Professor Paolo Pasqualucci, Julia Meloni, George Neumayr, and LifeSite’s John-Henry Westen.
*However, if a Catholic is unable to attend Confession but has a grave reason for receiving the Eucharist (such as a priest who may be required to celebrate Mass at a given time but who is unable to go to Confession), such a person must be confident to the best of his ability that he have perfect contrition for any mortal sins that he may have committed before receiving Holy Communion in an exceptional situation.
Deloitte has also signed a number of high-level, international business agreements aimed at promoting LGBT ideology, including
- The “UN Standards of Conduct for Business in Tackling Discrimination against LGBTI people (the LGBTI Standards).”
- The “Partnership for Global LGBTI Equality”
- The Brunswick Group’s coalition “Open for Business”
While Pope Francis made no mention of Catholic teaching (or religion) when addressing the Deloitte delegation, the Church firmly condemns LGBT ideology.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church #2357 teaches that: “‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.’ They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.”
Recently, Bishop Donald DeGrood of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, warned against promotion of LGBT ideology. Arguing against supporting individuals in transgender beliefs, DeGrood wrote “when a person experiences same-sex attraction or some form of gender dysphoria, such struggles do not change the biological fact of how God created that person, and it would be untruthful for the Catholic Church or our Catholic schools to pretend otherwise.”
Earlier this year, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), told EWTN that LGBT ideology and same-sex ‘marriage’ are “not in accordance with the Word of God.”
However, since the CDF’s March 2021 responsum condemning same-sex “blessings,” Pope Francis has made numerous public statements praising and supporting advocates of LGBT ideology and same-sex civil unions.
