Pope Francis: Card-Carrying Democrat

It’s hard to find an issue that doesn’t divide Republicans in 2015, and Pope Francis’s visit to Congress was no exception. This pontiff has been almost radical in his approach to Catholic doctrine, easing the church’s tone on gay marriage, abortion, and several other issues, winning over lapsed Christians who wanted religion without all the messy morality. This led Republicans to fear that Francis would use his speech to oppose the GOP agenda.

Others insisted there was no cause for concern. Francis wasn’t going to step into a political minefield, courting controversy for no good reason. He would preach a message of love and hope, leaving it up to each listener how they might apply that message to their politics.

Not only were the optimistic Republicans wrong, even the wary conservatives couldn’t have predicted just how lopsided the Pope’s speech would be. Were it not for his thick accent and white robes, you could have easily mistaken him for a card-carrying member of the Democratic Party. Hell, there are probably a handful of actual Democratic congressmen whose policies are to the right of the Pope’s. After all, there aren’t many Democrats actively calling for the end of capitalism.

Francis jumped into it right away, setting the tone without preamble. “Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred and brutal atrocities, committed even in the name of God and of religion,” he said.

But instead of building on that with some pointed remarks about Islamic terrorism, Francis instead took a page out of Obama’s playbook. “We know that no religion is immune from forms of individual delusion or ideological extremism. This means that we must be especially attentive to every type of fundamentalism, whether religious or of any other kind.”

Yes, ISIS is bad, folks. But hey, Christianity…boy, some stuff happened hundreds of years ago that you wouldn’t believe. So even though Islamic radicals are killing innocents by the truckload, let’s pretend like every religion is equally dangerous. Good stuff.

If Republicans were shifting uncomfortably in their seats already, Francis was only getting started. For the next hour, the pontiff gave his thoughts on:

Capitalism:
Politics is an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life.

Illegal Immigration:
On this continent, thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a better life for themselves and for their loved ones, in search of greater opportunities. Is this not what we want for our own children?

Abortion?
The Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development…

Nope:
This conviction has led me, from the beginning of my ministry, to advocate at different levels for the global abolition of the death penalty.

Climate Change:
I call for a courageous and responsible effort to redirect our steps and to avert the most serious effects of the environmental deterioration caused by human activity.

What a mouthful. If Hillary Clinton is forced out of the race (or taken away in handcuffs), maybe Democrats can persuade Francis to run in her place. That’ll be tricky when it comes to the whole citizenship thing, but hey, where there’s a will there’s a way.

  1. Pretty funny that the Pope pretty much endorsed the Democratic party’s platform.

    and on top of that, he shamed the right for many of your positions, especially climate change.

    you think the average American thinks the Pope is part of the “liberal Media” and a grand “conspiracy” to dupe the world?
    you cons really going to go there?
    It’s bad enough Trump insulted the Hispanics beyond repair, but now your going to attack the Pope?

    The pope and Bernie agree a great deal.

    ON POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT

    1. Pope Francis: “I ask you to be builders of the
    world, to work for a better world. Dear young people, please, don’t be
    observers of life, but get involved.” (July 27, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “We have to be engaged. We have to get
    involved… And millions of our friends and neighbors who don’t vote,
    who have given up on the political process, they have got to get
    involved.” (Seabrook, N.H., Sept. 20, 2015)

    2. Pope Francis: “We must say, ‘We want a just system! A
    system that enables everyone to get on.’ We must say: ‘We don’t want
    this globalized economic system which does us so much harm!’” (Sept. 22, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “The American people are saying,
    “Enough is enough. We need to create an economy that works for all of us
    and not just a handful of billionaires.” (Cochran, New Hampshire on ABC News’ ‘This Week,’ June 28, 2015)

    ON WAGES

    3. Pope Francis: “A just wage enables them to have adequate access to all the other goods, which are destined for our common use.” (Nov. 24, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “The federal minimum wage,
    it’s a starvation wage. You do the arithmetic. People can’t live on it.
    We have got to raise the minimum wage over a period of years to a
    living wage.” (Johnston, Iowa, Sept. 3, 2015)

    ON FAMILY

    4. Pope Francis: “Over and over again we see that
    family bonds are essential for the stability of relationships in
    society, for the work of education and for integral human development.” (June 20, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “What is most important is the need for
    mothers and fathers to bond with the baby they have brought to life.
    What kind of family value is it when you tell a woman who has just had a
    baby that she can’t spend time with that child, but that she has to go
    back to work?” (Washington, D.C., June 11, 2015)

    ON UNEMPLOYMENT

    5. Pope Francis: “The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old.” (Oct. 1, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “In my view there is no justice in our country when youth unemployment exists at tragically high levels.” (Liberty University, Sept. 14, 2015)

    ON WAR

    6. Pope Francis: “We want in our society, torn apart by
    divisions and conflict, that peace break out! War never again! Never
    again war! Peace is a precious gift, which must be promoted and
    protected.” (Sept. 1, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “It is my firm belief that the test of a
    great nation with the most powerful military on earth is not how many
    wars it can engage in, but how it can use our strength and our
    capabilities to resolve international conflicts in a peaceful way.” (Washington, D.C., Sept. 9, 2015)

    ON CLIMATE CHANGE

    7. Pope Francis: “The vocation of being a ‘protector,’
    however, is not just something involving us Christians alone; it also
    has a prior dimension which is simply human, involving everyone. It
    means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world… It means
    respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in
    which we live.” (March 19, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “When we talk about our
    responsibilities as human beings and as parents, there is nothing more
    important than leaving our planet healthy and habitable for our kids and
    our grandkids.” (Los Angeles, Aug. 10, 2015)

    ON HEALTH CARE

    8. Pope Francis: “It is vital that government leaders
    and financial leaders take heed and broaden their horizons, working to
    ensure that all citizens have dignified work, education and health
    care.” (Nov. 24, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “Health care is a right of all people,
    not a privilege. Most Americans do believe that all of us should have
    health care coverage, and that nobody should be left out of the system.”
    (Op-ed, Huffington Post, July 9, 2009)

    ON INEQUALITY

    9. Pope Francis: “It is a well-known fact that current
    levels of production are sufficient, yet millions of people are still
    suffering and dying of starvation.” (June 20, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “Despite exploding technology and
    increased worker productivity, median family income is almost $5,000
    less than it was in 1999.” (Twitter, June 15, 2015)

    10. Pope Francis: “While the earnings of a minority are
    growing exponentially, so too is the gap separating the majority from
    the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few.” (Nov. 24, 2013)

    Bernie Sanders: “There is something profoundly wrong
    when we are seeing a proliferation of billionaires at the same time as
    millions of Americans are working longer hours for lower wages and we
    have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country.” (Portland, Maine, July 6, 2015)

    all Good Christians need to follow the bible and vote for Bernie.

    (and send him money first thing.

          You can force all of the religious out and try to decide how to replace the 40% of hospitals that religion run and all of the free clinics and food banks.
          By the way you incredibly asinine fool, you have more peopel living in Taylor Home in Chicago, than most of the red states.
          and Los Angeles County spen 600 million on welfare just for th criminal aliens.
          i compute it will take about 4 years before you scum are in the streets rioting and buning because you are hungry.
          By the way, our borders will be hard and tight and we will shoot anything crossing illegally.

          • The border is all yours. We will keep all the hard working mexicans that do the work that your rednecks refuse to do and would prefer to sit around and complain that “they took our jobs” We’ll do fine with the corporate tax rates right where they are, we’ve been supporting your cracker asses for too long. Take your lousy schools and your bibles and git

          • Nah, liberal dem bloodsucker, More Lefty Manifesto crap.
            You liberal garbage think that you can lie to the future and it will listen.
            You talk a good game,
            However at the end of the day, there you liberal dem scum are, on public forums, whining and begging for handouts and trying to raise taxes on someone else to pay for them.
            You won’t be fine with taxes where they are you fing parasites always want more freebies.
            You won’t be able to stop, the liberals dems have been elected to office for 50 years, promising you the same thing,. more freebies.
            The USA has lost an average of 307 businesses a day, since the day, that the inept lying outlaw in the white house took office.
            The Federal register tells us that the number of the rich, ceding their citizenship and leaving the USA is up 743% since 2009.
            Last tear was the first time in the history of the USA, that the country lost more businesses, than it created.
            The labor participation rate, overall, is the lowest it has been in 36 years, for men only, it is the lowest in the history of the USA.
            3 major cities in Ca, bankrupt. Detroit, bankrupt Chicago, NYC and La all headed for bankrupt.
            Know what they have in common?
            Long time, liberal dem parasite, governments.
            Post your name and address, parasite, I’ll send you a red top hat, watching riots on tv is a lot more fun when you know some one

          • HAHAHAHA You’re a fucking moron. NYC headed for bankruptcy?? That’s hilarious. NYC is going like gangbusters. In fact after Bush threw the entire economy into the shitter, NYC dipped the least and came back faster than anywhere else in the country. Clearly you’ve never ventured far from your little hick town. Look it up, Blue states contribute far more to the fed government in tax dollars then they get back in services, while red states suck the entitlement tit dry. Please leave the US, we’d LOVE to see you go. All you barefoot, illiterate, critters are free to go

          • We aren’t leaving liberal dem bloodsucker.
            We are going to stay right here we are
            We will simply quit dealing with you liberal dem bloodsucking parasites.
            You stupid turds simply aren’t ;listening are you?
            Every one of the states that you inept lying scrubs have majority in is losing tax paying citizens and business.
            Not to worry though, NYC, LA, SF, Chicago, every year you get enough of the criminal aliens on welfare to keep the population up, up and welfare and food stamps costs to go up.
            Be fun watching you rioting an burning.
            probably we will award bonuses to the shooters on our borders that shoot some one burning

          • It’s clear you don’t get out of your liberal clique judging by the ignorance of your posts.Your posts are extremely ignorant about many parts of this nation.

          • There are 8 states that I have never been to, and they are scattered around this country. I have seen a good portion of this country and I know the balance of there the tax dollars come from and where they go, and the red states are net takers, while the states that give far more than they take, are Blue

          • Go for it RWNJ. I would love it for all you and your white trash relatives and friends to secede. You can raise the Confederate flag and wear white hoods. And if all the liberals move north I’ll be at the gate (we’ll call it the Freedom Gate) to welcome them. Send us your blacks, your illegals, your gays, we’ll deal with it and make it work. Why? Because we want to make this country work for everyone, not just straight, white, Christian men.
            I must say though, I will miss the beaches…..but I’ll get over it.

          • Hilarious, you liberal dem bloodsucking parasites, really, don’t have a clue, do you?
            have you looked at a political map, lately you asinine fool.?
            We aren’t talking about the south, you incredibly ignorant pi$$ant
            .
            If the states separate by political inclination, today, you stupid ersatz life forms, would have Ca., Washington, and Or, Illinois, Minnesota, NY and 7 other NE states.
            The only way you could even feed yourself, if decide how to get all of the CA. produce to you.
            That is now, after you get another 12 or 13 million welfare garbage and food stamp scum, you have no chance.
            But hey, if you like it that way, we are good to go.
            Post your name and address, I will send you a red top hat, hunger riots are a lot more fun to watch, when you know someone

          • The demo have won 5 out of 6 of the last presidential elections by popular vote. (Gore beat Bush but lost in electoral votes) so I’m not worried. Buh-bye. Oh and don’t forget, half the Gulf Coast will go bankrupt without northern and western tourism.

          • Still don’t get it do you liberal dem bloodsucking parasite?
            We are through with you, no matter what happens in the election.

        • Jimmy King you are the ASS AND AN ignorant ONE TO BOOT.

        • Texans like to claim California is a state of takers while they are a state of producers. They should learn to read and understand what they read. For every $2 Texas sends to Washington they get $3 back. For every three dollars California sends to Washington they get .80 cents back. Connecticut sends more and receives less than any other state. When I went to school those who received more than they gave were the takers. All the red states have higher rates of poverty, higher rates of teen pregnancy and lower rates of literacy. I fail to understand how they have the best policies.

        • You can shove your money up your ass for all I care. We don’t need nor want a damn thing from you!

    • Good ole R Check. You can always count on a truck load of BS from him.

    • Hey Reality Check, how about all of us self reliant, responsible, law abiding, WORKING people stop working. Than where are you blood sucking COMMUNISTS going to get your support ?? How about we ALL rely on the GOVERNMENT ? Oh but wait a minute, what about Obama and the rest of the RICH DEMS. They can’t be EVIL rich people and us be poor so THEY need to be the FIRST ones to give ALL there money to the CAUSE don’t ya think ?? If EVERYBODY needs to be the same, than EVERYBODY needs to be the same. Including you and all the other COMMUNIST. I mean it’s only FARE, DON’T YA THINK ?? YOU FREAKING IDIOT.

    • Send him your money. I choose to keep mine. Are you and Bernie willing to kill me for my money if I refuse to give it to you?

    • I’m sure the pope never heard the saying: leaving the door open to the hen house gets you a lot of feathers, but at least the wolfs are satisfied!

    • communism has killed many good people and infected the remaining cowards with the concept of steal and steal and when there is nothing left kill them and move on, probably to another country to denude it of anything of value or alive…

  2. The conservatives have repeatedly said that this was a Christian nation and that our principles should be based on Christian values. Any person who opposed them was godless. Well, the Pope turned their world upside down. He said that Republicans don’t have a lock on Christianity. That there is another viewpoint. He took Christianity away from them and gave it back to the people. I can be a Christian and support climate control. I can be a Christian and can still support same sex marriage. I can be a Christian and still support a woman’s rights. I can be a Christian and can still support gun control. The Republicans tried to paint Democratic, particularly President Obama as non-Christians. Well they lost. “Free at last, free at last. Thanks God almighty I am free at last.”

    • No one said this is a strictly Christian nation. However, this nation was originally founded with some Christian-Judaism roots or influences. To deny that, is to deny history, which is wrong. But the left doesn’t mind “changing” history, if it fits their agenda, do they?

    • You tell God that! Not Allah because that is not God in any way shape or form.

    • Actually Obama admitted in his books, by his record as senator, and even as President that he ‘was’ a Muslim. So the Republicans didn’t have ‘to paint him as anything.”
      So the only people who lost in the ‘lying market’ are Democrats who are now oppressing the rights of Christians and Jews, while saying Gays and Muslims are now above the law.
      For examples ask yourself why the Democrat County Clerk in Kentucky was jailed for six days for staying true to ‘her’ convictions. … and had her life threatened by “Gays, Democrats” etc… Yet here we have a Openly Gay Democrat County Judge in Texas who has been refusing to do ‘her job’ (also in violation of the law) for three years running … and yet is hailed on liberal media for her ‘courage’, following ‘the strength of her convictions’. And she never had to face jail time, or being in contempt of the court for breaking the law (refusing to perform ‘straight’ marriages – which she was required to do).
      Must be nice for Liberals to pick and choose who does and doesn’t have to follow the law … or for that matter is and is not ‘protected’ under that law … ((via the hate crimes law) where whites, conservatives and Christians are excluded from protections – while Gays and Muslims ‘are’).
      Don’t you just love those double standards?

      • If the liberals ever get their way completely their idea of equality is for everybody’s paycheck to be deposited automatically into the treasury. We already have mandated direct deposit by government and many banks. It’s incredibly easy to switch the destination of the deposits. The government or rather the dictators staff will decide how much you need to survive and that’s how much will be credited to your “check card”. Cash is already being slowly phased out. What you earn beyond that gets distributed to others who don’t make enough or who don’t work at all. All of the recent banking mandates and electronic financial controls by government are in preparation for the “Takings” that are part of the NWO Progressive movement. Obama’s very existence in politics was planned and executed by the NWO movement because they found themselves behind schedule and Obama was needed to accelerate the schedule. One more 4 year term of a democrat president is all that is required.

      • So what if Obama was a Muslim? Who give’s a sh*t! The constitution allows for that.

    • Gullible as hell, too!

    • NO the POOP did not turn this “world up side down” he just proved that he is a liberal moron from South America and no religious figure at all.

    • Screw the Pope!

  3. He’s definitely a Democrat!

  4. It is good to be cynical and skeptical about those for whom redefinition of morality and ethics is a means of justification for the human condition which posits that discipline is an antidote to selfishness. What liberals need to realize is that transaction, any transaction, is unnecessary. That will eliminate any “equal value” concept and the idea of payment for goods and services or debts, all debts. After all, the accumulation of debt is the negative which informs us of the cost of that for which we do not have the means to pay. If we simply eliminate the need to pay for something, like the American, black folk hero, Michael Brown, we will truly establish equal justice. Where there is a need, there is a gift. Just take it and go. Think of the crime that will be eliminated by such a policy! Think of the violence that will be avoided by simply giving anything to anybody who wants something! What a revolutionary idea! It will revive the need for American manufacturing in every conceivable area, just to keep up with the insatiable demand for goods. Supply and demand, after all, is the basis for the free enterprise system, especially the free-enterprise system where EVERYTHING is free. We could eliminate government because who needs government regulation when everybody is a world citizen and everybody has access to anything. Truly the achievement of the utopian, socialist vision of those who have the equality of all as a goal.
    The biggest hurdle will be the adoption of a single language for the entire world. Then, the elimination of all religious creeds to avoid competition between gods and their human agents. Discipline will be a problem for a while, since some learning tasks require a lot of discipline. But if we set up death camps for those whose mental capacities is insufficient to learn a new language without the help of a “god,” “we will kill two birds with one stone.”
    All of this is quite “tongue in cheek,” but it does illustrate the monstrous difficulty that liberal leaders face in a
    world of obstacles to the satisfaction of all human needs. Perhaps, they need to give up on sex, or, at least, adopt a kind of morality that eliminates the problems caused by their behaviors. It really is that simple and that complicated. Unfortunately, it is the whore of politics to which politicians are addicted that keep these issues from being considered from the perspective of morality and ethics. I doubt that morality and ethics are going to go away quietly.

    • Very interesting post. Equality and everything people want for free sounds like the Utopian ideal. “The biggest hurdle will be the adoption of a single language for the entire world”. This is definitely NOT the biggest hurdle. The biggest hurdle is getting everybody to provide the equal amount of labor to allow all of industry to perform at the levels required. No money is required because everything is free? However, everything is not free because in order to run the industrial engine that creates everything each individuals “payment” is made in the work they perform. And as we see all over the country and world everybody does not contribute their fair share of the required labor. So the problem that existed as far back as colonial times still exists in Utopia. Certain colonial villages were lived as communes (communism). Everything to everybody according to his needs. Except the needs of some were greater than the needs of others. Likewise, everyone’s contribution was not equal. Therefore disharmony arose, as it does in any society were the burdens are not shared equally and the communes soon were disbanded. Utopia and socialism failed in it’s infancy and has failed all through history. Some Scandinavian countries have existed with socialistic qualities, however not all phases of these countries run according to pure socialism. China, the largest communist experiment in the world has in recent decades lost out to the lure of “evil capitalism” because human beings still have a deep desire to be free. If China had not been forced to allow a certain amount of capitalism, there certainly would have been a full blown revolt.

  5. I would say that the Pope is a card carrying commie. He has been corrupted by the likes of Georgie Soros and his UN and EU elite minions.

    • Based on everything he said earlier and while in the US I must totally agree with you. Communists are atheists so I wonder how he manages to reconcile that. But he has managed to reconcile his opinions on forgiveness for abortions (which is killing a human being and contrary to the 5th Commandment) and homosexuality (technically an affront to the 6th Commandment). So he seems really good at picking and choosing the Commandments he will enforce like Obama picks and chooses the laws he will enforce.

      • You so called Christians are full of BS.

        • Candice- Yes they are full of it! They play the victim card so well, but blame others who are truly being persecuted and oppressed as playing the victim card. Go figure!

          • You seriously need to spend some time in the Middle East and actually TALK to the Christians AND Muslims who ARE being persecuted. You are so uninformed it isn’t funny.

          • More moronic spew from the left winger moron who gets his brains from the local manure pile.

          • Better than listening to the voices in your head. I find it interesting that you are proving your critics are correct. You apparently are unable to create a logical and rational rebuttal, but just continue to throw insults. Why not try debating?

        • Speaking of BS, How did you crawl out of the Pasture? OR was it a Pig Sty?

      • candice must be the azz wipe for the bs….she may have just converted from dumb schit to rag head..I should not say anything she will have the ho clintoney’s “ho squad” looking for me

      • Dear God”

        , hope you got the letter, and…
        I pray you can make it better down here.
        I don’t mean a big reduction in the price of beer
        but all the people that you made in your image, see
        them starving on their feet ’cause they don’t get
        enough to eat from God, I can’t believe in you

        Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but… I feel that I should be heard
        loud and clear. We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
        and all the people that you made in your image, see them fighting
        in the street ’cause they can’t make opinions meet about God,
        I can’t believe in you

        Did you make disease, and the diamond blue? Did you make
        mankind after we made you? And the devil too!

        , don’t know if you noticed, but… your name is on
        a lot of quotes in this book, and us crazy humans wrote it, you
        should take a look, and all the people that you made in your
        image still believing that junk is true. Well I know it ain’t, and
        so do you, dear God, I can’t believe in I don’t believe in

        I won’t believe in heaven and hell. No saints, no sinners, no
        devil as well. No pearly gates, no thorny crown. You’re always
        letting us humans down. The wars you bring, the babes you
        drown. Those lost at sea and never found, and it’s the same the
        whole world ’round. The hurt I see helps to compound that
        Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody’s unholy hoax,
        and if you’re up there you’d perceive that my heart’s here upon
        my sleeve. If there’s one thing I don’t believe in

        it’s you….

        • wow. You are one bitter lady. I truly pity you.

          First of all, God gave EVERYONE on the Earth FREE WILL. That means that God does not get involved in our day to day lives.

          i.e., He does NOT make bad things happen, but he knows there are bad people in the world;

          i.e., he does NOT cause war, although he knows war has existed since the dawn of time;

          i.e., he did NOT create racism, but he knows it exists;

          i.e., you really need to read the book “90 Minutes In Heaven.” It is a true story, and I know the author personally.
          I attend church with some pretty radical Democrats, but they are ALL God-loving people.,
          And, finally, the Holy Bible was written by 40 PROPHETS over 1500 YEARS. The story was passed down and told EXACTLY the SAME WAY until it could be WRITTEN down. Sort of like Alex Haley’s ROOTS.

          • Little bit incorrect here. I take it you are Christian, so read your Old Testament where God orders the genocide of those people living in the land of Canaan, and that includes everyone – men, women, children and babies. The Israelites had a book, now lost, whose title was the Wars of Yahweh. Also, according to the Prophets and the beginning of the book of Judges, when the Israelites started worshiping other gods, along with Yahweh, Yahweh would raise up a foreign nation so that it could attack the Israelites. So, God is the cause of a good number of wars.
            Now you can point out that God teaches us to love our enemies and turn the other cheek, but he doesn’t.
            By the way, the Holy Bible was not written by 40 prophets. For a good deal of the Bible, we don’t know who are the authors are. Including the New Testament, most of the writings are anonymous or pseudonymous. For what is in the Hebrew Bible (some Christian Old Testaments have more writings), we are dealing with a range of composition from the end of Solomon’s reign in the 10th century b.c.e. to the second century B.C.E., with the oldest independent composition being the Song of Deborah in Judges 5 and the youngest being Psalm 2. With the New Testament we have range of composition from 48 C.E. (1 Thessalonians) to 135 C.E. (2nd Peter).

        • More asinine stupidity from a liberal moron .

      • You know, you are assuming that God will not forgive those who break his Commandments, when the truth is that GOD FORGIVES.

        This God is SO loving that, NOT ONLY did he send his Son — who was himself sinless — to die for OUR sins, but that the ONLY unforgivable sin is UNBELIEF.

        We can accept Christ at the moment of our death and be forgiven for whatever sin we have committed.

        I watched my late husband accept Christ TWO HOURS before he went home to heaven. The look of peace on his face after he died was one I will never forget.

        • NO STUPID; YOU CANNOT do That. The ONLY “Unforgivable Sin” is that committed by Adam and Eve by eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge. The PAYMENT for that sin IS death.
          TO be forgiven, according to the Bible,; You have to HEAR, Believe, Confess your sins , Ask for forgiveness from GOD and BE Baptised and then live the rest of your life according to GOD’S HOLY word.

          • No, ma’am. I am NOT “stupid.” I am a very devout AND BAPTIZED Christian woman who has spent YEARS studying the Holy Bible.

            And, if God doesn’t forgive our sins, then WHY did he give us the Lord’s Prayer which Jesus taught us to pray — to ask DAILY for forgiveness of sins. WHY is it the ONLY prayer the Amish ever pray?

            It is impossible to “live the rest of your life according to God’s Holy word” without committing ANY sin. That is WHY Jesus was sent to die on the cross — a horrible death — for OUR SINS.

            And YES, you CAN be forgiven of your sins at the end of your life and go to Heaven.

            I have seen it for myself. I have met and spoken with my guardian angel (you would never believe it, but it is a true story), my son saw angels take my dad’s spirit from the room the moment he passed.

          • You take the comments out of context, you lie about what you ‘say’ the other person posts,; then you play victim when you’re called out on your BS.
            The fact is you have shown yourself to be completely without one shred of credibility. So ‘yes’, you ‘are’ as the poster described you to be.

          • There is NO self-righteousness (human effort) involved in salvation. It is the gift of God. You see, we have no righteousness of our own to offer God. No amount of good can undo the bad we’ve done. Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. Salvation is receiving, not giving. We are sinners and Jesus is the Savior. Jesus is precious! We are saved by trusting, not by trying.

            Unbelief is the only sin which can keep a sinner out of Heaven.

            Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

            Trusting Jesus is meaningless without the cross. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 teaches that the Gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    • He is so far to the left he would have to move hard right to even become a democrat.

    • Its so funny how you clowns can’t admit global warming exists and is caused by man. It’s not enough that 97% of the worlds climate scientist say its a fact, when the Pope says it, its because he’s a commie and on the take from soros. HAHAHAHA Next week you’ll be calling him a Muslim and questioning where he was born. Its so funny to watch you loons go

      • I am Pope Francis, “I just don’t believe in God, I question his existence?” I’m a part of the Soros experiment!

      • it is really funny that YOU clowns think that humans caused climate change and it is even funnier that YOU clowns think that by stealing more of the 50% of Real Americans (those who pay taxes)money at gunpoint to “distribute” it to the lazy slobs in other countries so the lazy slobs can do what with that money??..first YOU clowns tried to scare everyone with the “oh schit we are all going to freeze to death” then YOU clowns decided that we were all going burn up with the lie of global warming (miniscule temperature increase in the last 16 years) and YOUR clown butt buddies in England were revealed as to their “creative” efforts at demonstrating the non-existence of temperatures beyond the ordinary. Now it has gotten to the extreme as YOU clowns are blaming anything on cows farting, and CO2, and George W. Bush…why not move to some place perfect, say for instance where kenyan boyo was born…there have to be some perfect spots where no animals breathe and no companies are manufacturing things that make our lives better…of course you have to be very wary of the spears…

        • Kent, there is no need for me to reply. Your post shows how stupid you are all by itself

          • So do yours, Mr. King. I WAS going to answer your insult on the blog about the state fair and your continual insults to me and your perversion of my screen name, and YOU KNOW what it means because I have told you several times.

            1. You are a LIAR — you got all insulted because I told you all about your various screen names — J.K., J King, Jimmy Quick, and Jimmy King.

            2. You INSISTED that your ONLY screen name was “Jimmy Quick,” yet you got all insulted when I PEGGED all of your posts under different screen names as YOU.

            3. You are the ONLY ONE on ANY of these threads who has so perverted my screen name into something I will NOT repeat.

            4. My dad had a name for people like you — trash, i.e., people who continually LIE to make a point and then resort to name-calling when they are found out and proven wrong.

          • wimmy is a member of a very large group..”The World Dimwit, Man made Climate Change, Socialism/Communism is the Answer Association and Rags for awla”..these goof offs are only successful when that have either convinced hard working folks to “support them and their buddies” or in the case of the commies and the rags they just steal what they want and waste you if you complain or have not escaped…

          • You are absolutely right.

          • Crazy Whore, its time to take your meds. This is the ONLY screename I have. Believe what you may, it doesn’t matter to me You’re a loon and inconsequential

          • You know, you SWORE to me that YOUR ONLY screen name was “Jimmy Quick” on the blog about weapons the other day.

            I called you out, YOU cannot handle it that someone FINALLY knows THE TRUTH about you, so admit it.

            YOU are a VERY BAD LIAR!

            You are ALSO nothing but TRASH.

          • Damm you’re stupid. Jimmy Quick might have sworn something to you, I have no idea who that is. I have one screen name and one only, How about two different people, each with one screen name. Come on Crazy Whore, you’re losing it

          • What a load of total CRAP, Mr. TRASH!!!

            Your writing style is EXACTLY the same on EVERY Post, and equally amazing is that BOTH of those names come from the SAME IP ADDRESS. I looked it up.

            I am FAR from stupid and FAR from uninformed, Mr. Trash.

            My IQ is in the 140-150 range, and I am MUCH MORE intelligent than you are.
            YOU just cannot handle it that somebody is finally standing up to your insults, name-calling, and outright lies.
            Just as stupid is as stupid does, which I am NOT, TRASH

          • Crazy Whore, you really are stupid aren’t you? You can barely find your home address never mind my IP address. I have 1 name and 1 only. Like you Crazy Whore

          • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!
            Wow, Mr. Trash.

            Your insulting attitude toward women makes me wonder if you treat your WIFE (or HUSBAND, or SIGNIFICANT OTHER) with the SAME disdain and abusive attitude?

            OR, do you treat EVERYBODY in your personal Circle of Friends with the SAME disdain and abusive attitude?

            You have a Holier-Than-Thou attitude, which means that you think you are BETTER than everyone else.

            So, GIVE IT UP, Mr. TRASH. You will NEVER get under my skin!!!

          • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

            Wow, Mr. Trash.

            Your insulting attitude toward women makes me wonder if you treat your WIFE (or HUSBAND, or SIGNIFICANT OTHER) with the SAME disdain, Holier-Than-Thou, and ABUSIVE attitude toward everyone you come into contact with.

            Do you BATTER your wife, husband, or Significant Other?

            If so, you are lower than the lowest place on earth and probably reside under a snake’s belly.

          • Crazy Whore, I’m not Holier than thou, I’m just a hell of a lot smarter than you are and I get frustrated sometimes when you say the same stupid stuff over and over again

            Next time, Shut up, listen and learn

          • The Industrialists who are destroying our planet have all of your pathetic politicians in their pockets. Do you think that clown McConnell isn’t just a shil for the coal industry?

            You people are so fucking stupid it’s laughable. Yes every major developed country, NASA and the fucking POPE are all on the take right??? Idiots

          • Tell me how the ice age ended thousands of years ago when there were few people and no industries and pollution. How did three miles of ice that covered half of North America melt? If you tell me that then I might believe in man made climate change.

          • wimmy does not know about those events, he was paying attention in school when the communist that was disguised as an American teacher demonstrated how to put a rubber on a cucumber and during the revised history and civics class…in addition he passed the “new” economics course with a D+, suggesting that he may have offered the teacher some “extra curricular” activities not condoned by the school..oh wait a minute, he may have gone to one of those leading edge institutions…

          • well you idiots have got plenty of “virgin” land down in the Amazon and in Siberia, and in the Australian outback….moving there and building a real showplace would impress all of us…be sure to collect plenty of leaves to wipe your face when poop all of the wonderful things that are there waiting for you to simply pick and eat….just think you can walk where you need to go and not be inconvenienced by buildings, phones, stores, cars, trains, ships, television, radio, mortgages, and pay day loans….oh do not let the door hit you in the azz crybaby…

      • It’s SO funny how you morons can accept all the BULLSHYTE Global Warming claims ignoring that they have changed and keep on changing all the Data they use to “prove” those claims and even then they FAIL to be able to state the truth.

        • A head enema? ROFLMAO! Best comment I have heard in a while!!

        • Pam it is probably colon mucus that has blinded those who claim to be the EARTH SAVERS. With Winter coming their rants will change to GLOBAL COOLING…..and to watch out for falling polar bears from the sky.

      • Apparently you have not received the message calling it climate change now.

    • Mostly from being schooled in Argentina….let us pray he resigns or retires immediately.

    • Yea, that’s it….stoooooooooooooooooopid!

    • reagangs, everyone must remember the country of birth of the Pope, therefore, they must remember that he is truly a socialist. His words are proof of his upbringing. He has NOT changed the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church on abortion, marriage, the death penalty, etc.. They will never change because they are not manmade but based on God’s Word. Life must be respected at every level. Marriage is between one man and one woman. The Federal government never gave the definition of marriage; God did. Thus the SCOTUS had no right to make law – that is not in their purview. They are to interpret existing law, not write law. The Congress makes the laws and that begins in the House, then the bill travels to the Senate. All the Pope has done has asked everyone to love the sinners and that includes the homosexuals. He has not said that we are to change our way and our beliefs and condone their homosexual activities, but rather just love the sinners. He proved that he is the Vicar of Christ while dining at the WH. This POTUS invited to dine with the Pope: transvestites, homosexuals, gay activists, transgenders, etc.., seeking to make a mockery of the Pope thinking that he would make a chess game of it – should the Pope refuse to dine with sinners, it would have been “check”, but this Pope outsmarted the slithering POTUS and dined with the sinners including this POTUS, just as Jesus would have done – Jesus dined with sinners and this Pope did, too. Checkmate and match! The liberal media is selling headlines and causing consternation. As for immigration, if he wants immigrants, let him take them into Vatican City – which has its own government.

  6. The pope should go home and keep his noise out of our lives. We can screw it up all by our self. POPE GO HOME.

    • yep lives in a walled city; lets no one in; and climate change ba humbug since when did he become an expert
      oh where did he spk of christians slaughtered by isis or the imprisonment of 4 americans no where

      • His response to ‘that’ was that “the Bible and Qur’an are the same.”
        He also said “to watch out for religious extremist” …. meaning Jews and Christians who support the religious freedom of Jews and Christians.

        • As a PROTESTant, I must disagree with the pope. The word of GOD(the KJV bible)instructs us to be as much like JESUS as we can—- and I am sure that he would meet the definition of a “religious extremist”.

          • The word of God is not the KJV of the Bible. To begin with, not a very good translation and some intentional mistranslations to back certain Christian beliefs. But, if you want to read God’s words, then you better read the Bible in its actual languages and that is Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Anything thing else is nothing more than a translation and translations are more often than not interpretations.

        • Anyone who thinks that the Bible and the Koran are even close is an uninformed fool, which would qualify them to be a democrat!

          • I thought it was the Babble and the Korean?

          • And your mother “thought” you had a brain; LOOK how badly she got fooled.

          • She surely DID, and the Proud Liberal will have her time before God for blasphemy, it may be sooner than she thinks, too!!!!

          • She or he may call them selves proud liberals but most of them are in fact not liberals, they are socialists and Bolsheviks and there is a big difference ! Most of them are boobs and lack communication skills and never asked their teachers questions or doubted the hogwash their teachers taught them!

          • Bolsheviks? Really? As for the US, we are a mixture of capitalism and socialism, just like all of the major industrial nations. I take it you then want to get rid of Social Security and Medicare? Both programs based on socialist programs in Europe. Reagan claimed that Medicare would bring an end to all of our freedoms because it was socialist. So, I guess we should get rid of Medicare and any supplemental programs that people have bought.

          • Right on Roger!! Love it.

          • Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr.

            The
            Bible and the Koran are light years apart. And if He can’t see that,
            He needs to be thrown out of office, or whatever they do to brain
            dead Popes. He is one of the biggest hypocrites I’ve seen in a long
            time. He sits on a mountain of wealth, which He’s not willing to
            part with, that He wants others to do so. They should do is rent the
            movie, The Shoes of the Fisherman with Anthony Quinn. Maybe that will
            reset His moral compass.

          • I take it that you haven’t read the Qur’an or taken a course in it?

          • Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr.

            My God doesn’t tell me to lie, and murder people. goes yours? Does your god tell you ,your wife is property, too beat, and to do what ever you say. ie honor killings. sex with children. show me where they are the same.!

          • Clearly you have skipped over sections of the Hebrew Bible or didn’t read it at all.

            Numbers 21:2 Then Israel made a vow to the LORD and said, “If you will indeed give this people into our hands, then we will utterly destroy their towns.”21:3 The LORD listened to the voice of Israel, and handed over the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their towns; so the place was called Hormah.

            Deuteronomy 20:17 You shall annihilate them–the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites–just as the LORD your God has commanded,

            Joshua 6:17 The city and all that is in it shall be devoted to the LORD for destruction. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall live because she hid the messengers we sent.

            Joshua 6:21 Then they devoted to destruction by the edge of the sword all in the city, both men and women, young and old, oxen, sheep, and donkeys.

            Exodus 17:14 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this as a reminder in a book and recite it in the hearing of Joshua: I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.”

            Now you do get rationalizations – that all of these people were evil by performing human sacrifice (of which there is some evidence but not for all). No distinctions are to be made between those who are innocent and those not.

            When it comes to the Hebrew Bible, women are the property of their fathers and then their husbands. Read Deuteronomy 22 where we learn that if a non engaged virgin woman is raped then the rapist is to pay her father 50 shekels of silver and she will have to marry her rapist.
            If a virgin who is engaged is raped in a town and did not cry out for help – both she and her rapist are to be killed.
            But if it took place in the open country, then only her rapist is to be killed.
            What is the foundation of these laws – women are property and women who are raped are damaged property.
            By the way, there are extremist Calvinist churches that do preach that a husband has a right to beat his wife and children. I met on about 12 years ago
            Let’s not forget Lot in Genesis. When the men of Sodom want to rape and torture the two men in his house, Lot offers his two virgin daughters as substitutes. Something that he had to do because he had offered hospitality to the two strangers.

            As for lying – There are numerous prohibitions against lying in the Qur’an and the Hadiths. But, lying is permissible if it is the only way to protect yourself. Just like Abraham in Genesis, where he lies twice that his wife Sarah is his sister so that he won’t be killed because of Sarah’s beauty. He feared they would kill him and then take her away.

          • But, Morgan, we don’t do those things anymore we became more civilized and our religion does not allow fathers to kill their daughters for kissing a boy, they can beat their wives there was even a video telling them how to do so, we do not behead people because they do not follow Islam but Muslims still live in the seventh century where it is okay to throw homosexuals from rooftops, stone women who disobey, don’t let their women leave the house without a male member of their family accompanying them. They refuse to catch up with us in the twenty-first century and become civilized.

          • But those practices don’t come from Islam but from the customs of that particular country. For example, in a number of African countries, there is what is called female circumcision, which is mutilation. Those who practice this are Muslims, but the practice doesn’t come from Islam, but from north African tribal customs and it gets carried over.
            But if you go back forty years in this country, men who murdered their wives because they cheated on them and they killed them, rarely got convicted. Now, that is a male chauvinistic attitude that the wives got what they deserved and the husband has a right to shoot her, but we don’t put that on Christianity since that is the dominant religion here.

            For backwardness you do have Muslims who argue that if scientific research does go along withe Qur’an, that research should be rejected. That is is something that you get from fundamentalist Muslims and that is straight out of say, the 9th century, but you also have that with ultro Orthodox Jews and fundamentalist Christians, straight out of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

          • As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, ‘does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honoured with equal sentiments of devotion and reverence.’ [DV 9.]–Catechism of the Catholic Church, (C) 1994/1997 United States Catholic Conference, Inc.As Roman Catholic apologists like to point out, the RCC is not guided only by the Sacred Scriptures, but also by Holy Tradition. Like so many other aspects of the Catholic cult, this unwillingness to accept God’s Word as sufficient shares many characteristics with those other religions and cults which the Roman church absorbed in order to gain control over their devotees.

          • Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr.

            I
            knew you would go back that far. You’re a good spinmeister. I live by
            the new covenant. All I can say is spin to your hearts content if
            that’s what makes you happy deceiving people.

          • Where’s the deception? When the Israelites conceived of their god, he was a warrior god, often described carrying a sword, helmet, etc. When the Israelite religion evolved into Judaism this god also evolved into the kind and loving father.
            But getting back to these passages, they are used by some Christian groups who support the genocide of today’s Palestinians. To be sure fringe groups, but one of their leaders supported McCain until McCain discovered his positions.

          • “When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of freedom to Americans…” “And so a lot of people say there’s too much personal freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it. That’s what we did in the announcement I made last weekend on the Housing Projects, about how we’re going to have weapon sweeps and more things like that to try to make the people feel safer in their communities” —President Bill Clinton, March 22, 1994, MTV’s “Enough is Enough.”

          • The Pope does not own the wealth of the Church.

          • Over all messages not that much difference. Kill the infidels in the Qur’an is about those Arabs who attacked Muhammad, then is used by extremists to apply to nonMuslims.. Kill all the Canaanites, etc. in the Old Testament, for some Christian organizations, like Christians United for Israel, interpret that as kill all the Palestinians.
            Islam has ISIS and al-Qaeda as their extremists.
            Christianity has a number of Christian white supremacy churches and organizations.

        • Jesuits are out spoken communists and this pope is too;

          • Francis sure is not CATHOLIC and hopefully will resign or retire immediately if not sooner!

          • Actually, he is more Catholic and Christian than some recent popes.

          • The Word of God condemns any religion which follows the traditions of men, rather than the commandments of God, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men … And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition … Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” -(Mark 7:7,9,13).

          • So Judaism, Jesus’ own religion, is a false religion. Nice, taking this all of context in which Jesus is debating some Pharisees about the purity laws. And by the way, Christianity was created by human beings.

          • Even children’s shows have been saturated with New Age occultism, all conditioning the masses to receive the coming antichrist. This stuff is real folks! It’s actually very simple, and nothing to be scared about if you’re a born again Christian. 1st John 4:4 states, “Greater is He (Jesus) that is in you than he that is in the world.” The god of this world is no match for the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. That’s why the church will be removed from the world before the Tribulation period (i.e., a Pretribulation rapture), because we’ll expose the antichrist on the spot if we’re still here.

            “The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.”-Proverb 4:19

          • No they are not. No more than all Lutherans are Nazis. Jesuits are noted as scholars, and as missionaries.

      • You are aware that ISIS is slaughtering many more Muslims than Christians aren’t you

        • Good! Killemall! All the muslims that is!

        • Sure thing John, and the majority of them are little 4 1/2 yo girls, right after the bastards rape them!!!

        • John, I’d wager they won’t believe you, despite it being the truth. They think Christians are actually being persecuted, such as Ms. Davis. Why do you suppose it is they act like such victims?

          • The poop wouldn’t know the TRUTH if he got hit in the face with a shovel full; He’s as big a moron as you apparently are.

          • You’re one ugly person, both inside & out.
            Calling the Pope a moron? What the hell is wrong with you?

          • Debate and compromise are the essence of democracy. Without opposing views debated and compromised democracy cannot exist. That’s why the tea party just like the Nazi’s in pre war Germany recruit only people who are unable to or refuse to think. They make obedient followers and can be counted on not to research anything; just obediently follow the party line. They will however shout to the world how patriotic and independent they are.

          • According to ‘credible sources’ the Nazis were in fact Socialist… and believed in the redistribution of wealth…. kind of like the Democrats of today.

            I’m still waiting on your links from ‘credible sources’ (other than occupy democrats or the coffee party… etc). That the Tea Party is what you ‘say’ it is as you keep lying about ‘your’ patriotism!

          • The Nazi’s supported corporations and destroyed the workers right to bargain. I have no idea of how much you remember about WWII but I remember quite a bit. The Nazi’s and the Communists were bitter enemies as the communists were products of the radical left and the Nazi’s were products of the radical right. Hitler in 1927 stated that they were a Christian movement just as the whackos from the right are doing today. Anybody with a functioning brain knows that radicalism in any form, whether from the right or the left, is dangerous to freedom and democracy. I am an American, meaning I am not a liberal or a conservative. Generally I am conservative on fiscal issues because I believe in frugality where money is concerned and liberal on social issues because I believe in individual freedom and liberty. I would never declare myself liberal or conservative on all issues because that would be an admission that i cannot think for myself. Even someone with a single digit IQ understands that all issues must be evaluated according to the facts and conditions surrounding it and after a decision is reached, if it is necessary, can evaluate whether it fell to the left or right of center. As far as questioning my patriotism, I will only say this, I did not run and hide when I was drafted and would never question someones patriotism without knowing anything about them. Intelligent people know that without disagreement and discussion you have a dictatorship, not a democracy.

          • You can disagree with a person, in this case the Pope, w/o making disparaging remarks.
            Dementia setting in?

          • You are right on that. If the pope agreed with them, for example, they would love and praise him and he should stick his nose in. But typically with the uninformed, they don’t know that the present pope has a masters in chemistry. So, he can speak on scientific matters although ecology should also be seen as a theological/religious concern as well.

        • SO WHAT does THAT “prove” you moron.

          • The fact that Muslim extremists are killing Muslims who oppose them. That not all Muslims are terrorists, no more than all Christians are members of the KKK and other domestic terrorist groups.

      • He actually is a scientist.

    • Conservative christians who don’t think like me should all immolate themselves.

      • Since your head is all ready well inserted between your nether cheeks, why not just go ahead and crawl right on up and disappear.

        • How old are you? Four? You can’t carry on any rational and logical conversation; just name calling. Must be god awful being you.

  7. He definitely comes from the Rules for Radicals By Saul Alinsky play book. Read this and then compare before you comment or just show your stupidity.

  8. Raymond J Ambrozaitis

    LMBO The democrats will take Him with a smile while you gorge yourselves on the hatred and bigotry by the likes of Trump, Fiorina and Carson.

  9. .
    I would say the way to address the man would be comrade Francis not pope Francis.

  10. His own doctrine papal infallibility only applies to matters of religion and in no way extends to politics. He’s out of his element when he talks politics.

  11. I even heard yesterday that he believes atheists can go to heaven as if they care about going “upstairs” when they die.

  12. You have to remember that Francis lobbied for the job. He was the runner up in the previous conclave. There is even reason to believe that his lobby group pushed out Benedict. There is also no doubt of the influence of the “gay lobby” which has been documented within the hierarchy. There is also the evidence of CIA “footprints” all over the proceedings. So much for the belief that this was all done by the Holy Spirit.

    • The Catholic Church has been “hiding” and “transferring” homosexuals and pedophiles from parish to parish for decades instead of throwing them out of the church. There is no doubt that many are within the church hierarchy yet today. Benedict retired because there was evidence of his complicity in the “hiding” process. I believe he was also accused of being complicit with other socialist political organizations directly in conflict with Christianity. It was called retirement but he was definitely transferred away to quell the growing outrage. The church is still involved in cover ups of illicit activities. This is definitely “not your grand fathers Catholic church”.

      • The difference is that Francis is changing the rules. Benedict knew that it was wrong. Cardinal Law went into Boston to seek penitence and offer forgiveness. This was the wrong path. Benedict did not know what to do. Francis jumped up and wanted the football. He is moving toward accepting gay relationships. This is what the lobbying from Cardinal Kasper is all about. This is too broad a response. This is not about all gays fit the same pigeon hole. Gays are not born that way. There is no gay gene. The “genes” are put on one leg at a time. The proper response is to conduct deep research into the issue and not taking the view of the gay lobby which has taken over the Church in the form of Cardinals Kasper and Marx. According to Raymond Arroyo of EWTN, the compassion for the divorced is really a masking for the acceptance of gay relationships.

  13. This so called POPE is a plant, a phony and a COMMUNIST. Ever wonder why Pope Benidict quit ? A Pope has not done that in over 600 years. I think he was forced out to put this PHONY in. This is ALL to convienent for the COMMUNIST CAUSE. I am Catholic and I feel my church has been taken over by the very thing they have fought so hard against for years. GOD HELP US ALL.

  14. So, other than the blind faithful, who cares what this mislead Argentine Pope thinks? No wonder this religion has so many pedophiles. Sounds like this one in particular can make deals with the devil. He does come out like the poster child for the dem wit dems. And he is selective about what he wants enforced and not enforced, just like our current resident arrogant narcissistic sociopath prez.

  15. The American public has become so accustomed to religion being a massive con game that they can’t recognize a spiritual person when they hear one. Let’s hope he reforms the catholic church guiding it to the teachings of Jesus Christ which contained hatred for no one. It appears there are even many people who actually think that a spiritual person would involve himself in politics. To try to classify a spiritual person as a liberal or a conservative is nothing more than the machinations of a con artist involved in deception. Once enough Americans are convinced to believe that the creator is steeped in hatred and revenge, and connect those who do not preach hate and revenge with enemies of the state, then indeed that nation is in decline and shall keep the history of all super powers destroying themselves alive. If the Pope is a Marxist for preaching the teachings of Jesus Christ then why are there so many people who say they believe in Jesus Christ?

  16. more like a card carrying communist, who like obama and clinton love Stalin:

    Stalin: “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold:
    its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life.
    If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

    the pope accepts immorality, so god accepts immorality,
    so America’s morality and spiritual life is dead,
    marriages and families are dying with the absence of morality and spiritual life!

    the corrupt communist government has won, so America’s patriotism is dead,
    and America is no longer a nation under god,
    America is a nation under the global corrupt communist government!

    Americans have become just tax slaves of the global corrupt communist government, unlike Israel, America will never be nuked because the communist world needs America’s tax slaves!

    I pray history repeats itself!
    the only way America can be saved, is if the tax slaves…
    all 350 million tax slaves, unite and not pay the corrupt communist government, shut it down!
    what will the corrupt communist government do then?

    this is why the corrupt communist government is prepping for martial law,
    because as history has proven,
    slaves will revolt, unless slaves want to be slaves!

  17. Pope Francis, huh? With all due respect to Catholics, it’s more like Poop Francis!

  18. He didn’t preach the teachings of Christ. In fact, he didn’t mention Christ at all. This Pope is a false prophet. He talks about politics, immigration, climate change, etc, etc…. not one mention of Jesus. Not one peep uttered from this mans mouth regarding our Lord & Savior. Guys like Francis, Joel Osteen, and the list is a long one, all deviate from, and manipulate, and even omit bibles verses to meet their agenda. These folks, and make no mistake are clever manipulators. They are false prophets in the money game. The price was paid. You don’t buy or earn your way into heaven…., it’s called Grace. People have a difficult time understanding the perfection of grace embodied within Christ. The inheritance of eternity has been guaranteed by Jesus.

  19. Quite simply, he is the False Prophet who will usher in the Anti Christ – in my humble opinion! He was implanted by the NWO-ists just as the Muslim-Marxist jihadist in the “Outhouse” was also implanted! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION as these Satan worshipping communists are not going to cede their power that they have worked for decades to achieve!

  20. He’s a marxist – just like our president. What do you think the final pope and the president talked about in private? New World Order, perhaps. Every time you see an article with the word global in it, think NWO. Tick tock

  21. What did anyone expect of an Argentinian? I was surprised he did not call for the confiscation of all Americans’ savings accounts to be distributed to the illegal aliens invading the U.S. since they are probably 100% catholics and would have given most of it to Francis’ church! He is nothing but an ultra liberal marxist!

    • Don’t laugh now because what I’m about to tell you is the absolute truth, God strike me dead if I’m lying…
      As a disabled Vietnam vet I WAS living on $1379.00 a month.. Just a few months ago they cut it to (are you ready fir this) $1.33 mthly! No, that wasn’t a slip of my finger! $1.33 a month. The Head Terrorist Nigga In Charge is giving it all to what he calls, refugees. They’re actually his personal army for when he declare martial law and changes the flag atop the once white house!!!

  22. The poop has came from a total socliast enviroment in SA so he has no experiance in a true democracy just a hands up for free gifts from a screwed up gov.

  23. No surprise that the Pope leaned far to the left. He was raised and lived in a totalitarian state. That’s all he knows. But he is blind to the fact that dictators in his country stole the country’s wealth and imprisoned the population. Somehow he overlooks the policies of personal repression called for in his views. He ignores the facts that the world’s poorest people live in his liberal countries. The Pope is infallible in the teaching of the church. Doesn’t that make him a dictator? Good or bad, the Pope is still the authoritarian figure which is in direct conflict with freedom. Wow! Think about that. Isn’t that the reason many religions broke away from the church in the first place?

  24. The Pope is a card carrying Commie…

    Just like the Democrats.

  25. I respect the Catholic Church as one of the few churches with tradition. Modern thinking has eroded religious tradition in favor of something more instantly gratifying. If the church does not stand for tradition, has the church been wrong all these years and does religion change as fast as popular public opinion? If the 10 Commandments are absolute, why then does modern religious leaders treat religion as a lawsuit to be degraded by lawyers who constantly chip away at absolutes in favor of the legal community inspired gray area? Why do religious leaders bend the commandments of God to whet the desires of individuals who do not have the character to follow the dictates of God? Obviously, not all religious leaders ignore the teachings of God, but many now follow the money. Have the temples being built and the money they bring replaced the reason for their being built?

    • The problem is the “tradition” that the Catholic Church has all too often substituted for the clear and true teaching of holy scripture!

  26. Socialism is probably a perfect philology in his little bubble called the Vatican. Out here in the real world when one of those desired, forgiven murderer, rapist are violation one of the sheep, he’ll be safe in the Vatican surrounded by his imperial guards eating grapes and hand feed caviar by one of his special priest! I have a plan let Italy take the Muslim refugees and we’ll take the Christian; in a couple of years we’ll see who’s converted who?
    I’m sure the climate will have changed then also!

  27. As a catholic I was appalled by the popes socialitst opinions…in my opinion he is the False prophet !

  28. S. Salvatore (xtrudes)

    Fran01 you can take your “gun control” and stick it up your ass! You tried that one and lost Traitor. Free at last….Free at last..

  29. He’s the false Prophet uniting with the Antichrist

  30. LIberalism, progressivism, in any form: secular or spiritual is deaden to any nation, any area, church or state. It is evil. As Bill Buckley wrote years ago: one can be a liberal and one can be a Christian, but one cannot be a liberal Christian! Just so.

  31. The goody two shoes pope is best buddies with farakane and the porch monkey in the big house!!

  32. This Pope is has an Antichrist spirit that is obvious. People that worship him following after a wolf in sheep’s clothing. This man does not have an ounce of Christ in his Marxist life. Another one of Obama’s game plans to further the agenda for the U.N.. Wake up people, the time is here and happening right before our blinded eyes.

  33. The catholic church is nothing but the world’s largest cult. When Hitler was trying for a one world power the catholic church was shoulder deep up Hitler’s arse.

  34. It’s truly hilarious to watch the right bitch about the Pope not being conservative enough.

  35. The pope a demoncrat? I never would have guessed! Just kidding, of course!

  36. The Pope made a comment today that supported Kim Davis’ right to not issue marriage licenses to LGBT people. I am sorry I agree she has the right to not want to do those things but if she wants to keep her job she needs to do it. If she cannot perform or prevents others from legally performing those functions she needs to quit or go back to jail and for a long time. Time to shut this crap down. The Pope can shove it where the sun does not shine for his hateful speech. If Kim gets to use her religious beliefs to prevent others from receiving their legally entitled marriage licenses then Kim is shoving her religious views down the throats of others. The people she is preventing from getting their marriage licenses have religious and legal rights also. What about those. Believe those peoples rights trump Kim’s rights. She needs to quit her job and the Pope needs to shut up about things that do not concern him unless he is willing to begin paying taxes here in the USA.

  37. I can truly say as a protestant I don’t pay much attention to Popes!!! They are just people and if you read about papal history there were several that PROVE no MAN is infallible and this pope is VERY fallible!!

  38. Hummmmm… I’m not certain; but, someone told me that this pope had his poplane fill with hundreds of ‘illegal immigrants’ from the USA and took them with him to the golden city of ‘BATICAN’….! Yeah… Sure…!

  39. democrat = socialist

  40. Let’s see. The Pope was just following the teachings of the greatest socialist ever. And that would be Jesus Christ.

  41. Dems are so happy for Il Papa’s appearance but his agenda is not good for Christianity when one looks at it doctrinally but it sure rings well with leftist progressives who can blast the Pubs once again for being MEAN.

  42. I really hate to misinform the writer of this editorial, but we MUST guard against ALL kinds of religious extremism, and YES, this DOES INCLUDE CHRISTIANITY, as follows:

    1. White Supremacists, who claim that Jesus Christ and God, himself, hates ANYONE who isn’t white, or Aryan descent — and they are ready to carry out what they believe to be “God’s Will” and exterminate these people.

    NOTE: That includes MOST of the people in the United States, by the way;

    2. The KKK — they were over one million strong in the sixties, and since that time have largely moved underground, hence the belief by many liberals that they have been eliminated;

    NOTE: The KKK was started BY DEMOCRATS;

    3. Aryan Brotherhood — largely a prison gang, but when these people get out, they group up and continue their vile activities largely under the radar;

    4. Westboro Baptist Church — who WON the right to stage vile protests at every funeral of every veteran, active duty, and police officer funeral, prompting the Patriot Guard Riders to attend every one of these funerals, forming a flag line to protect the family.

    5. ANYONE who repeatedly states that “God will punish America,” meaning that God will punish every American. This is simply not true and is yet another example of people taking the Bible out of context to garner any meaning they want — they then proceed to shove it down the throat of everyone who will listen.

    NOTE: Sadly, a lot of people ARE listening.

  43. The Poop needs to go sit on his throne and flush three or four times.

  44. Wasn’t Jesus, what would be considered now, a Liberal?
    Ah, yeah

  45. Genesis 8’22” God says there is no global warming or change. Gay marriage, both God in Genesis and Jesus in Matthew say marriage is between a man and a woman. He is a nice man but I doubt seriously he knows anything about the Baptism in the Holy Spirit or reads the Bible and accepts its complete authority on the above issues.

  46. Whenever they mention CHILDREN my BS METER GOES WILD!

    I notice lieberals and communist like to mention children a lot when they lie.

  47. Notice he he never mentions sin and hell?

  48. The thing that most Americans aren’t aware of is that the Crusades happened “Because” the Muslims were invading every country in Europe and the Middle East and conquering and converting by the sword!!! Finally the Christians rose up (there’s just so much a person/nation can take before they fight back. These barbarians were finally pushed back to where the came from. Now, they’re rising up again. This pope actually states in his latest book that, “the Muslims believe in the same God we do!” Really??? I don’t think so!!

  49. Two words to describe the Pope…. False Prophet….. Nuf said.

  50. The Pope’s comments in Philadelphia suggest that he may be a typical Argentine peronist personally, and has been more influenced by Latin American liberation theology than his two revered predecessors, but that his unabashed and embarrassing imitation of Unitarianism while in The Capital was due to the exploitation of his limited English and personal innocence by the criminal traitor regime. It is clear that our president-for-life wannabe has in mind a “patriotic” church like that created by his Chicom paymasters, whose role is to bless same-sex marriages, absolve abortionists of guilt and cheerlead for Marxism. People of faith must continue their principled opposition to a government that, despite fawning on this particular Pope, is really the church militant of atheism and even Satanism.

  51. The Pope – that Marxist from Argentina – is a socialist, a Marxist, a racist (of anti-white kind), pro illegal aliens, and said nothing about the Planned “Parenthood” baby parts selling factories.

  52. El Papa just another third world commie Marxist!

  53. I am a fallen away Catholic (since Vat II or the Reformation II) and find this Pope to be an unbridled Marxist posing as a religious leader of an institution that was once grounded in moral certitude! It’s interesting to me that he can equate an illegal act with noble aspirations. Also, wants the first world nations to bring the third world nation up to par with them! Sounds great, but tell me how is this going to be possible? If you look at the demographics, how can 1 or 2 billion uplift 4 or 5 billion? Better yet why don’t the liberals who are so concerned about over population take their mantra over to the 3rd world nations and educate them in having fewer children, so that they can at least raise them to maturity, fully clothed, fed and educated? It’s ironic their ‘message’ has been so effected in the affluent nations who can give their children everything that it takes to be successful and yet ignore the other!

  54. The pope is about as religious as al sharpton and jessie jackson. I would not go across the street to see that piece of steaming obama.

  55. Fr. Bergoglio [as he likes to call himself] is an imposter pope, in a pope’s suit.
    He’s not a Christian by any measure; an unbeliever and a false prophet who has infected the house of God.
    Francis is masquerading as a Catholic.
    The Pope is not an Oracle. He is the custodian of Divine Revelation
    which ended with the death of the last apostle. [St. John, the Apostle]
    Pope Francis is a humanist-progressive preaching salvation by the welfare state.

  56. Try card carrying communist is more like it, who supports the NWO for Obama and the Democrats

  57. Blasphemy!!! You cannot show me even one Scripture from the Word of God where we are told to trust in Mary, by reciting the Rosary to be saved. In fact, the word “Rosary” is NOT a Bible term. The Rosary is straight out of the pits of Hell. Jesus condemned vain repetition in Matthew 6:7. According to Our Lady of Fatima (whose teachings are officially sanctioned by the Vatican), a person can obtain eternal life through Mary by reciting the Rosary. In sharp contrast, Jesus Christ proclaimed in John 14:6… “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

  58. The pope is a DOPE

  59. Card carrying independent thinker … Someone has a problem with thinking independently?

  60. Why would anyone listen to this man’s political views? He isn’t a US citizen and probably never even read the constitution.

  61. I have no respect for that liberal scum people call the pope, he’s not a holy man but a showman for his own pleasures.

  62. “The citizenship thing.” Heck, Bathhouse Barry Soetoro got away with it, why not the Pope? The American people can be just as stupid twice. Seems like the majority are on Pelosi Stupid Pills.

  63. The Pope is a communist just like Ovomit, and no true man of God. But I am not a catholic and I can see he does not go with church teachings. He is pathetic.

  64. Take the billions $$ in shrines to themselves and feed the hungry. The Vatican and all its glory makes me sick at my stomach.

  65. The Pope was advised by radical left wing ecofascists. Not one proponent of other causes was allowed to submit information. And we all know how well the Church has been with scientific stuff. Remember Galileo?

  66. as a catholic I see this pope as the forewarned false prophet

  67. Dissapointment of the year that this Pope did not call out ISIS as evil and call upon the world to defeat them to the extent they would never pursue the same behavior again. That’s what the neighborhood kids used to do to the bully and what our country did to Germany and Japan. Go home Pope, we already have a leader that can’t prioritize problems.

  68. You forgot the all important word, PROGRESSIVE. Progressive Democrat Pope.

  69. He’s definitely a Socialist Left leaning Democrap

  70. In todays World, democrat = communist.

  71. I wonder if most Catholics follow his teachings, I would hope not. If they did it would not be Catholicism it would be (Socialist Catholic)

  72. It’s so interesting reading the posts. Most have no idea of what they’re talking about and most haven’t a clue of what being a Christian means. This pope is following the path that Jesus laid and if there is an attack on Christianity in America, the posters show how it is being done.

  73. Dr. Robert Schwartz

    This website invites all and every persuasion to speak out, and its lead commentator is listed as “admin,” virtually a confession that he is unwilling to identify himself in this shard of a piece of subjectively dizzying prejudice.

    I cannot begin to clarify the erroneous slants listed above, but I will state that the pope: a) is the spiritual leader of all Catholics and does not discount the attention others give to his words; b) the environment, whether the natural world or its human configurations, can, in man’s hands, be harmful to others, and, therefore, falls within the concerns of the Catholic faith, led by the pope ever since Peter; c) the pope has NOT been radical on matters of faith and morals. He has tempered his condemnation of abortion and homosexuality by a call for forgiveness, noting, as he did and does, that Christ came to bring light to the sinner, to help the hopeless and to show mercy and love towards all.

    This is the character of Catholicism that the pope is emphasizing, moving the pendulum of public discourse more toward those virtues that marked the life of Christ on earth, as well as all His followers, exemplified by the saints. His words form the vanguard of a renewed emphasis on helping “the other,” and that clearly includes relief for the sick and hungry, for the immigrant, the poor, the unemployed. These are the souls that look to heaven for assistance in their weakness. These are the persons that beg for food, for medicine, for shelter in their desperation.

    Pope Francis, like his namesake from Assisi, sees the global struggle and calls upon all nations to bend over to assist, even while serving up the cornucopia of abundance to those who already enjoy the food, the medicine and the shelter in their lives.

    There are some–some countries and some people–who were simply not blessed as much as others, a view on the world that we are all aware of. This pope is invoking the deepest pillars of wisdom of Christianity–and certainly of all good men–to bring about a better world for ALL good men, from the neediest among us.

    In conclusion, it is as human as it is Christian to consider these people. But for the will of God, the situation might be otherwise.
