Trump Not About to Cede Moral Authority to Pope

Proving conclusively that there is no cow too sacred for criticism, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said Thursday that Pope Francis was wrong on the subject of illegal immigration. “I think that the Pope is a very political person,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network. “I think he doesn’t understand the problems that our country has.”

Trump made his remarks in advance of Francis’s trip to Mexico on February 12th, where he intends to spend six days in some of the country’s most embattled cities. While the primary focus of his trip will be to preach against the violence and corruption that the drug cartels have brought to cities like Juarez, the pontiff also reportedly plans to stand with migrants at the border in a symbolic condemnation of America’s immigration laws.

Francis has never shrouded his feelings on the subject. In July 2014, he released a statement that said: “Many people forced to emigrate suffer, and often die tragically; many of their rights are violated, they are obliged to separate from their families and, unfortunately, continue to be the subject of racist and xenophobic attitudes.”

Last summer, Francis said that Americans opposed to illegal immigration needed prayer. “I invite you all to ask forgiveness for the persons and the institutions who close the door to these people who are seeking a family, who are seeking to be protected.”

Trump’s not on board. “I don’t think he understands the danger of the open border that we have with Mexico,” he said. “I think Mexico got him to do it because they want to keep the border just the way it is. They’re making a fortune and we’re losing.”

It comes down to this: Why aren’t thousands of Americans desperately trying to emigrate to Mexico? Is there something so magical about U.S. geology that makes us the preferred place to live? Of course not. We are the land of opportunity because of our unique system of government, our unique cultural tapestry, and our incomparable free market economy. Our military has grown to such power that we are virtually immune to invasion.

But a hostile war is not the only way to destroy a great republic. Great empires of the past have decayed gradually, their dominance undermined by corruption, interior revolution, and cultural degradation. The United States may have little to fear from an outside military threat, but we will certainly not survive if these factors overwhelm our constitutional foundation.

A wise man once said that you could take all the money from the top 1%, give it to the bottom 1%, and within a short period of time, the original rich folks would have it all back. The same might indeed be true of America. If everyone in Mexico and everyone in the U.S. switched places overnight, how long would it take Mexico to become the world’s greatest empire? How long until the U.S. was wrecked with poverty and violence? A country is its people, its values, its history, its traditions, and its laws. There’s nothing sinful about wanting to keep our country the way it is.

  1. Trump is right ! Load up a few thousand mexicans and dump them in the Vatican ! Pope will sing a different tune real quick !

  2. THE POPE IS NOT LOOKING AT WHAT SOME OF THESE IMAGRATES ARE THERE A LOT OF BAD ONES WE SHOULD SEND THEM TO HIS VADICAN TO LIVE

  3. It is hard to believe that the Pope can be so blind or ignorant to the problem unfettered immigration has created in numerous European countries. Even Italy has been affected and it will only get worse there eventually at the rate they are going.

    • This pope seems out of touch. They say he will be the last pope I can see why

      • The Bible clearly states there will be a world government led by one man, the Man of Chaos another man that God says is a False Prophet these two according to Scriptures will perform miracles and the majority of people will follow them. Checkout the “Interfaith Movement” this could be the formation of the One World Religion. The world man is known to the world as the Antichrist but the Bible uses at least three names: “The Son or Man of Perdition” “The Lawless One” “The Man of Sin” the man of sin can be translated man of Chaos, interestingly Chaos is what will be needed to bring about the coming world government.

    • Since most countries don’t make a move without consulting the Vatican, it’s make sense that the Vatican is behind this mad immigration into Europe. If you believe the Scriptures and believe what the God of the Bible said to Abraham and what He commanded His prophets to write then what we see happening worldwide is the formation of a One World Government and a One World Religion. The coming “Great Tribulation” will bring in the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Worldwide Chaos is needed to bring this about, interestingly one of the three names, one who the world knows as the Antichrist can be translated as The Man of Chaos instead of “The Man of Sin” the other two names are: :The Lawless One and “The Son of or Man of Perdition” Checkout the :Interfaith Movement” they are in every state in America and they lobby for more Muslims to come here, they get millions of dollars from our tax dollars, which is disgusting to me.

  4. The Pope is dealing with people issues far different from secular individuals. But border issues are human issues. Our southern border situation is a mess. It is under attack by desperate poor people and dangerous drug cartels. Our objective is not to kill anyone entering the us but to secure our border such that we control who comes or goes with what.

    • Right but if these so-called progressives have their way there wont be a Republic to migrate to, America will become just another Hell-Hole that people will be migrating From, with no America there wouldn’t be anywhere to migrate to, the whole world would be one giant sewer.

      • Apolloone,
        I believe we are all headed for a sewer life if we do not change direction. At 78, I don’t think I will see it but my grandkids will and that concerns me a lot. I notice that Europe is getting fed up with refugees. I think it is our turn. We have a whole lot we need to do to improve our own population, especially in large metro areas. We brought that on ourselves so we have no one else to blame. And I notice that progressive welfare is not working very well. We need to restore some dignity to our own people.

  5. Let the pope take them back to the Vatican and give them jobs in his city. God knows they’ve been holding on to money for years.

  6. I, for one couldn’t give a rat’s a-s what the pope thinks. He is not God, even though he thinks he is. In my opinion he is nothing more than a glorified communist and has no say in what we do or say in our country. Go back and to Italy and live in your glass house pope. I’m pretty sure I will get lots of hate mail for my stand here, but, guess what, I couldn’t care less.

  7. Trump is right, once again. Consider:
    Does the Vatican City allow for anyone to enter and set up house keeping?
    Many non-Catholics do not recognize the Pope’s authority or even believe that he is the authority on morality.
    Was it not the Catholic Church that began offering sanctuary to illegals?
    Has the Vatican ever given away their vast treasures to the people. Or do they still take “donations” from their followers?
    Has not the Church spent years covering up the violation of young boys, which is a human rights violation?
    Neither the Pope nor any man has a divine authority to speak for God or even to decide what God would want done.
    The Pope should restrict his messages to religious ones and stay out of political issues.

    • You are right you should see the Vatican and the billions poor people have given for them to set up thrones to themselves.
      The pope should go home and clean His house before he tries to tell us what to do with our borders.
      Maybe take the billions $ they have and take care of some of the poor.

  8. clinton’s and this pope’s communist past is well documented, obama just sealed all his records!
    obama and clinton AND NOW THIS POPE believe in the destruction of America:
    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.”
    Thus they will:

    NOT defend America’s national security,
    this pope is ok with 200,000 muslim “refugees” invading America,
    dividing Americans and just giving iran nuclear weapons with ICBMs,
    this pope is ok with Americans being nuked,
    like hitler, they don’t care about killing Americans by the millions,
    after all, the ends justify the means.

    NOT defend America’s moral values,
    why should we care, if this pope doesn’t care about America’s morals,
    dividing Americans, and destroying health care, education, the economy, and race relations (they are both racists).

    NOT defend God,
    why should we care, when obama’s but buddy pope doesn’t defend God in America,
    this pope doesn’t even care about the 10 commandments, so start with killing them all.

    once America is totally divided, it dies from within, with the aid of this pope!!!

  9. I agree with Trump that the Pope is very political and a liberal. Of course he doesn’t pay taxes or be responsible for anyone but himself. It is easy to sit on his throne and tell other countries how they should run their business. I don’t know how he got to be Pope. He really doesn’t fit the description of a Pope.

    • By Throne(?) do you mean the ‘Crapper’ ! (Ha)

    • That is the reason for separation of Church and State. Otherwise we would be a Theocracy like the Muslims.

      • What is now called the “Dark Ages” is proof of what the world would be like under Papal Rule. This pope also is pro Islam as John Paul 11 kissed the Qur’an the “Interfaith Movement’s goal seems to be the creation of a one world religion. That’s the religion that will be headed up by who the Scriptures call the “False Prophet” Islam is clearly a anti-Christ religion the Qur’an has many similar verses like this one :They say a most monstrous thing when they say God has a son” I agree with them that Allah has no son, because he is just one of over 300 wooden and stone idols they chose as their god, he was the moon god before Muhammad the madman chose that particular idol.

      • There is no such thing as separation of church and state. The clause is the government can not mandate a religion nor attack (interfere ) with those who peacefully worship Father God creator of the universe. In other words they can not stop you from praying or speaking in any public place. #1 Amendment free speech is also a part of that. You will notice it doesn’t give anyone the right to harm other people or property in their expression of praise. God Bless your way. Amen

        • The 1st Amendment does not cover hate speech intended to induce violence.

          • That’s right aklady, it doesn’t cover specify what is “hate-speech intended…”, so we will protect your right to your brand of hate speech, unlike “progressive” sites that you seem to avoid.

          • What do you mean ? I live for my Father God. He is my best friend and guide to peace and love for my neighbor. What is hate speech about wanting to live in peace and honor my neighbor ?

          • AKLady, The ist amendment covers all speech, even treasonous speech. The consequences or reactions to the speech can be shame, pride, worry, defiance,hatred,paralyzing fear, or elation, or any number of other emotions. Violence of any kind is generally committed by people who have very little emotional control, in which case, just about anything can set them off. They are a walking time bomb.

      • DollyT, There is no “Separation of Church and State”. There never has been. The first Amendment says there will be NO OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION. Such as the Church of England; The Holy Roman Catholic in Italy, The Greek Orthodox in Russia. (as examples) This nation was to be a place where everyone could practice their religion without interference from or with the government. Religion was not going to interfere with the laws nor could the laws interfere with religion. Unfortunately, the law is interfering with religion, which is unconstitutional. That is the real reason everyone is pushing for a Constitutional Convention.

        • Just how is the law interfering with religion?
          .
          Please tell us.
          Please be exact.

          • I would prefer you study on the Constitution, it is a wonderful document to organize and LIMIT the federal government beyond those 18 items in Art 1 sect 8, not the people it serves nor the States.

          • AKLady. All true Christians have very closely held beliefs ( ie The 10 Commandments) . As long as we hold true to them we are ‘protected by the blood of Christ.When we betray those beliefs we start ‘falling away’. We have set our feet on the wrong path. The more we indulge in ‘worldly habits the easier it becomes to completely abandon our faith. The Government has said we cannot discriminate against same sex marriage. So we are forced to betray our beliefs to accommodate something which we consider a sin.That is how the government is interfering with religion. The fact is this. The LGBT people do not go to Muslim bakeries (although they are very fine bakers and make some fabulous treats) because they know they would be refused. They do not go to atheist bakeries either. They go to Christian bakeries, florists, wedding planners, caterers, printers and venue owners, and bridal shops, KNOWING they will be turned down. Then they call the press and lawyer up and Christians are forced to pay exorbitant fines or close down their business . That is how the government has interfered with religion.

        • “Unfortunately, the law is interfering with religion, which is unconstitutional.”
          come on Joyce.
          lets stop making up crap.
          people doing business in the “public square” using the “public services”, are using religion to discriminate, is AGAINST the LAW.

          • realitycheck: Please go back and read our Constitution, it is the limits of the laws of Federal Government, NOT

            of a free people, or a free state, regardless of what you would prefer it to say.

          • the Constitution allows for the Fed to regulate interstate commerce and the welfare of the people.
            discrimination would be taking care of the welfare of the people.

      • Actually, the term “separation of church and state” is not in our Constitution. It was part of a statement made by Jefferson. It was stated not to keep the church out of the state, but to keep the state out of the church or in other words, from forming or favoring their own religion over another.
        Every government building in DC is covered in Biblical verses and references. The Christian religion is our country’s foundation.
        As George Washington stated on 9/26/1796…..
        “Christianity and Morality are the pillars this country is built on. No man can claim to be a patriot if he tries to subvert these great pillars.”

        • Franklin said that the Constitution was for a “moral people.” We now see what happens when morals and religion are taken out of a society. Complete cultural, political, and ethical rot.

          • My sentiments, exactly.

          • Oh, and who defines “morality”? Your religion or mine? How about society at large, do they get a voice in the matter?

          • My Bible define morality. They only have a voice if they accept God’s Son jesus as their savior.
            I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
            And die to find out there isn’t,
            Than live my life as if there isn’t,
            And die to find out there is.

          • Yes, and you are free to choose which religion to follow.
            .
            However, you are not free to force that religion on other people.

          • And neither are other religions free to force their beliefs on us; such as the Muslims who behead Christians in Egypt because they refuse to worship Allah.

            Allah is the muslim word for God – their God, not our Christian God. However our Christian Bible does tell us to commune and spread the word of God. Allah’s Quoran says to KILL INFIDELS who refuse to worship and believe in Allah.

            My question to you is how can anyone worship a prophet that kills, maims, abuses, keeps small children as sex toys, and keeps women captives to raoe along his travels? There is absolutely nothing good or redeeming in Islam’s Mohammed – just plain sadistic evil. Hey, everyone to their own evils.

            And you wonder why so many Christians refuse to have anything to do with muslims and their culture – all archaic, violent and unyielding…a dying culture at its best especially in a world of Feminists who will never obey any Muslim man’s wishes. Or a Gay world that is considered “unnatural” to Muslims and if caught comes with a death sentence.
            Yes, the World marches on while Islam still tries to hold on to its threadbare violent history. They need to return to their desert caves where they came from and worship Allah in peace…no one bothering them, Shariah Laws intact. It’s the smartest thing for Muslim radicals to do.

            If Trump is elected (HUGE possibility), there will be no more muslim refugees until a successful manner of vetting them is acquired. For America to be solvent again with a stronger military presence, the only candidate that could pull this off IS TRUMP– you know it, I know it and the millions of Americans just squeaking by know it stronger than all of us and have learned never to trust a Liberal again because they make empty worthless promises and they LIE.

            MOST Libs are pathological liars — they can no longer tell the difference between truths and fallacies. Look at obama – look at Clinton – prime examples of Pathological Liars. Too bad they don’t have the Pinochio Syndrome because their noses would give them away every time they opened their mouths!

            The funny thing is that obama already has attached puppet strings to complete his role as puppet while soros, the PupoetMasterñ moves the obama pinnochio puppet with great ease – but the constant growing wooden nose is become a detriment and is always getting in the way!!

          • Which, in my opinion, Justice Scalia was murdered by either / both Obama and Clinton. He was a champion for America and Americans, refusing to recognize other laws that would make our constitution subservient. So they murdered him – and NO autopsy? We are entering the death throws of a once magnificent experiment killed by leftists who hate this country and our freedoms.

          • There is nothing the Left wouldn’t do to keep their control of the ignorant masses of Americans. But what those fools don’t get is that their lies and corruption are going to catch up with them – like it is happening to hillary. The GOOD in America is finally going after the BAD! I pray she is wearing prison jumpsuits soon!

            As for bho, his arrogance has him blinded to the amount of Americans that hate him and wish him gone. If he doesn’t leave the U.S. immediately after leaving the White House, some P.O.d citizen may go after bho’s butt!

            Personally, I think he’s going split to another country and hide so no one knows who he is. Obama is a yellow bellied coward who is afraid of his shadow. No one would miss that snake if he just disappeared forever…no one.

          • He killed himself with his knife, fork and spoon.

          • And You are a bible thumping left wing (isn’t THAT an oxymoron?) ass! Since YOU love to quote scripture, bible thumper, back at you. “Let him without sin cast the first stone”.

            And anyone calling herself a lady generally isn’t.

          • On the national network news tonight, more information from Scalia’s doctor was made available. His own doctor characterized him as obese, with diabetes and coronary artery disease. Just how in the world could a person with those conditions have died in his bed? I smell a rat!. Surely there was some kind of sinister plot involved! Er, wait–“obese+ with diabetes” + “coronary artery disease”??!! Yep, he WAS MURDERED! HIS OWN BODY was the villain who laid him low.

          • Egypt is not the United States. Our laws are not their laws.

            Islam, Judaism and Christianity all worship the God of Abraham. The God of the Old Testament.

            Religious hate is unAmerican. Relgious hate is wrong.

          • Then why is it that only allah calls for the death of ALL unbelievers? I know of NO other religion that does so. And they call it a religion of peace.( a bold faced lie) Their actions tell everyone what they are capable of doing in Allah’s name The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob does not endorse any such thing. The Koran also says that lying is ok and to deceive the enemies of Islam. God says lying is wrong and a sin. God says that He is the ultimate judge since He is the only One who can send someone to hell The two are very different. Read the Koran, and compare it with what the Bible says.

          • You seem to have very limited information sources.

            Throughout history religion has been used as an excuse, or driving force, for some of the worst atrocities imaginable.

            In the Central African Republic, Christians are murdering people who will not convert. In the U.S.. Christian bomb medical clinics and murder doctors.

            You need to go back and read your Bible a bit more. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob does condone and encourage killing.

          • Have you read it, and at least try to understand it? Compare it with the Koran and see which one calls for killing ALL unbelievers. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob does say to wipe out the enemies of Israel in several places in the Old Testament. Back in the day it was a common practice used by many other peoples as well. It was a way to permanently getting rid of deadly enemies who want only to harass and kill for their own pleasure.
            However, nowhere in the New Testament does it say any such thing. It does say to turn the other cheek and not respond to abuse with violence, or more verbal abuse in return. For many people, doing so is hard to do sometimes. After all we are mortal, and fallible too.
            That does not mean killing in the name of God is a requirement. Christianity calls on people to voluntarily choose to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, not by force. Being under duress to say something is not a voluntary choice In the name of Christianity, they use God as an EXCUSE to commit murder. God does not call on people to murder, or make war indiscriminately Their actions are no more Christian than Islam is. They are guilty in God’s eyes of the murders they commit. I *humbly* ask, that you please don’t condemn all Christianity because some people commit the most grievous of sins.
            Remember, there are places in Africa where Islamists have basically declared war on everything not Islamic, including people. Some people choose to defend themselves and their culture against an enemy who wishes only to kill them Its not fair to lump all Christians into the same boat because a group voluntarily commits a war crime
            Islam, however basically says to go and kill, kill, kill all unbelievers and run wild with cockamamie, backwards and upside down thinking that is *completely* incompatible with the cultures of western societies.
            By comparing the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, with the attributes of their allah, you can see two very different personalities.

          • RELIGIOUS HATE IS WRONG.
            AMERICA IS NOT 1930s- 1940s GERMANY.
            .
            THE US CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

          • RELIGIOUS HATE IS WRONG.
            Tell that to a jihadist.

          • The Jews, especially in Israel, would disagree vehemently, and with anger, at even the mention they worship the same God as Christians or Islamists do.

          • You are sadly misinformed.

          • See my recent post below. Just because someone refers to god, does not automatically mean they are the one and same god/God All foreign languages have a word meaning god. Saying it in different languages only indicates they have word for it.

          • Judaism, Islam and Christianity are Abrahamic religions. They have the same roots.

            The differences in the Middle-East are not religion based. They rather land-based, i.e. territory disputes .

            I suggest you study some history – begining about 1944. The State of Isreal did not exist prior to WW II.

            The State of Palestine did not exist prior to 1988.

          • If you are not Christian, Jew or Muslim then just who are you to tell others who are, who they worship? Try telling a muslim that he worships the same god as Christians and/or Jews. The muslim would probably want to behead you instead.

          • Please increase your reading conprehension.
            I made no statement concerning my personal religious beliefs.

          • IGNORAMUS !!!
            I’m not talking about YOUR beliefs.!!! RE READ MY QUESTION AND AT LEAST TRY TO COMPREHEND IT.
            I SAID *** “IF” *** NOT THAT YOU ARE. ITS CALLED READING COMPREHENTION !!!
            ARROGANCE IS LIKE DUNG. WHEN YOU SPEW IT, NOBODY WANTS TO BE NEAR IT.

          • Arrogance is something that you CHOOSE to perceive.

            “If you are not Christian, Jew or Muslim” …. assume, assume, assume ..

            Islam is an Abrahamic religion. Muslims worship the Old Testament God of Abraham.

            Jews and Christians worship the Old Testament God of Abraham.

            Truth and fact are just that — truth and fact.

          • Cognitive dissonance is not a good character trait

          • Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

            Frederick Douglass

          • Allah is the ARABIC word for God. The Old Testament God of Abraham. The same God worshiped the world over by all Abrahamic religions — including Christians.
            .
            Islam is the world’s second largest religion.
            It is far from dying.

          • And that quote comes from Allah, the god of Islam…not the God of Christians. Muslim’s god has not changed but remains a violent nasty god. Our Christian God has evolved realizing hate, anger, violence, and murder wasn’t a good way to grow our population…at best it was antiquated and archaic. So God changed His demeanor and sent Christ to fix what He had done…bring Peace, Love and Compassion to a violent out of control civilization.

            Our World is full of many religions – all off shoots of the first God. Just like we have many different denominations here in the U.S. like Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Baptist, Methodist, 7th Day Adventist, Jehovahs Witness, etc. All of these have different prophets and different origins, but they all believe in one Supreme God, most of them believe in Christ as our Prophet. So to say that “Allah” is the original name for any God, I get it. But that is where the ball stops.

            When it comes to prophets, Islam’s prophet is violent, twisted, abusive, murderous, and a PEDAPHILE. HE IS WHO THEY WORSHIP TO GET TO ALLAH. His testimonies preach everything vile and evil, so his followers do everything vile and evil. He preaches that muslims must conquer the World and those that refuse to accept Islam’s Allah’s teachings, THEY MUST DIE. Why do you think all these muslim jihadists are killing Christians and other religious believers? BECAUSE THE QUORAN, THE ISLAMIC HOLY BOOK, TELLS THEM THAT IS HOW THEY WILL GET IN HEAVEN.
            So, yes, Allah means God in name only. Each religious group follows their own Prophets (Christ, Jesus for Christians; Mohammed for Muslims, etc.) that interpret “their” own interpretations of the God they choose to represent. Islam’s prophet choose violence, murder, pedaphilia as his route to heaven…thus his followers have chosen the same route. Christ is a Peaceful, loving, caring prophet that preaches to love one another. Two entirely Different prophets preaching two exact opposite lifestyles.

            As much as you “want” these two different lifestyles to be able to live together…they won’t, atleast not this milennia.

            Allowing muslims (even the quiet nonviolent ones) to live next to Christians is encouraging blood baths for Christians. Since our United States was founded on a Christian background, allowing any violent misguided group of muslims to live inside our country is just plain foolish and dangerous…even for you AKLady.

            One day in the far future this may be achieved, but not during a time when radical jihadists keep killing and maiming our Christians in the name of their own sadistic prophet mohammed and their god Allah.

          • Remember too. Our Christian Bible is composed of writings that were interpreted from humans. They are like stories that those individuals experienced and put down on parchment. The Bible is where we learn our teachings about Christ and His way of life, which we try to emulate by reading those individual’s writings…and they are wonderful! This is a good thing!

            But when it comes to believing in a religion, if you don’t have a faith that is so strong it can sustain you through anything and you have to continually quote passages from the Bible to sustain your faith, you may need to stop and look in the mirror and ask yourself: “Do I truly believe God loves me to sustain my life for eternity?” If you can answer “Yes”, you truly have Faith and God is your constant Companion each minute of your life! Once you know God truly is in your heart and every cell of your body, life changes and you look at things differently because God is directing your life!

            Right now God is directing me to try to save His Christian children’s lives by keeping those who would hurt them far away. Notice I didn’t say “kill” or “hurt” the violent ones, but put a distance between those that are violent and those that are Peaceful. This is acceptable to God and protects the “His” innocents from harm.

            If you are at that point with God, I congratulate you because that is where He wants us all to be – to be in constant contact with Him 24/7 and feel His presence! God Bless!

          • That quote is streight out of the Holy Bible.
            .
            Your ignorance is beyond comprehension.
            It is an embarassment to all of America.
            .
            Next time, look up facts before making a fool of yourself.
            Oh, and ignorant one, Allah is simply the word for God in the Arabic langiage.

            Stop embarassing America with your ignriance and bigotry.

          • You are so HILARIOUS with your trite pitdowns and numerous misspellings…totally HILARIOUS. Someone would see I hit a sore spot on you…your relationship with God. It’s okay. He said you are frightened of His word and must kerp repeating it to reassure your Faith in Him. He understands and is compassionate about your worry. He still loves you, even if you have lost.your real Faith in Him. He said you will find your way home…one day.

            Relax AKDamsel in distress. God is close, closer than you know and He knows who we all are, especially you. You can’t hide anything from Him…nothong. He knows what is truly in your heart and right now, you are afraid, fearful…don’t be. Just open your heart and let God’s love in. It will truly take away the fear you have.

            Question for you: what would you do if God came to Earth tonight? What would you say to Him? Would you give up all your worldly goods if He asked you? Would you fall to your knees and ask for forgiveness? Could you take communion with God in good conscience knowing you are so arrogant and condescending to those who want to help you? Could you look Christ in the eye and tell Him you are a “good” Christian knowing that is a lie?

            We don’t know when Christ will be returning, but you AKDamsel have a lot of Soul searching to do before you go before God. If I were you, I’d start now before it is too late.

            P.S. Christ knows all the Bible, he lived it. Quoting scripture is a nice touch, but it doesn’t mean you are any closer to God than anyone else.

          • Muslims gonna force their “religion” on you skank – or separate that lump on your shoulders from the rest of your worthless body 🙂

          • Religious bigotry is wrong. It is also unAmerican. Your ignorance is an embarassment to America. Islam is the world’s second largest religion. If they were as you say, you would already be headless — a long time ago.

          • No way I can match Barrack at embarrassing America ! Not even close 🙂

          • Islam is bigoted. It doesn’t t allow worship of any god but allah. The situation is very different in non-Islamic cultures.

          • Allah is not a foreign “god”.
            Allah is the Arabic word for God — the God of Abraham — the same God worshipped by Jews and Christians.

          • Compare the attributes of allah to those of Jesus Christ. The two have very different characteristics. They are not the same. One calls on islam to be the dominate and ONLY lawful religion, and to kill ALL those who will not submit. In the New Testament, Jesus NEVER proclaims any such thing. He calls on people to simply turn the other check. For me, that means to let God deal with their sin. Its not up to me to pronounce guilt and declare punishment.
            I cannot believe the two are the same when they show *very* different

          • Here in America, we capitalize proper nouns.

            Allah is the Arabic word for God. The God of the Old Testament. It is not a false diety.

            Jesus is not God the Father. He is the Son.

            That belief violates the First Comandment in the eyes of many faithful people.

            Your ignorance, and bigotry, emabrass America.
            Please educate yourself better.

          • I don’t capitalize it on purpose because I firmly believe their god, allah is not the same as the God of the Bible. For people who don’t believe the Bible, and don’t understand its spiritual principles, why is it that some just proclaim to believers that they are? What difference does it make to a non-believer? None. It doesn’t affect them one way or another. If they don’t want God or the Bible in their lives, then fine. Live and let live.

            Yes, allah is the Arabic word for god. It does not automatically mean that their god is the same God of the Bible. As I’ve said several times above, the two have very different characteristics, which indicates two different persons. That is unless God is schizophrenic, and I don’t believe He is.

            BTW, your ignorance, and lack of understanding of Biblical scriptural principles is an embarrassment to those who do. Its best that you educate yourself better if you want to be more credible
            Parameters reset. Stasis initiated. End communication.

          • Allah is the Arabic word for God. Arabic is spoken by people of many religions, including Christians and Jews.

            Hence, in your bigotry and ignorance you insult the very people you wish to support.

          • If you are not Christian, Jew or Muslim, then who are you to tell those who are who they worship? Your lack of understanding on this is showing, and no amount of discussion or debate is going to educate you. You refuse to listen to or even consider other beliefs, you simply declare and proclaim
            Its been a colossal waste of time arguing with someone who declares to others who they worship.

          • Please learn the difference between fact and opinion.
            Please increase your level of reading comprehension.
            I made no statement regarding personal beliefs.

          • You have proclaimed that I worship the same god/God as Jews and Muslims. You say allah ( using the Arabic *WORD* for god) is the same one in all three religions. Just who are you to declare such a thing if you *are not* an ardent believer in any one of the three?!
            It is a very SIMPLE question. DON’T ANSWER, it would just be MORE nonsensical complete IGNORANCE.
            It doesn’t take a genius to understand my question. So WHAT is wrong with YOU!!!??? YOUR DISGUSTING ARROGANCE AND SNIDE COMMENTS INDICATE A PERSON WHO MANY OTHERS WOULD NOT WANT TO BE AROUND. YOU ARE TRULY A DISGUSTING LIBERAL WENCH
            I’m outta here. Trying to educate someone who OBVIOUSLY lacks Logic, spiritual understanding, and respect for others beliefs, is like spitting into the wind.

          • Find me a Muslim that does not worship the God of Abraham, Joseph and Isaac?

            Just one, stinky … just one.

            I declared nothing — simply provided a fact that you could have easily looked up for yourself.

          • You are one seriously demented blind, deaf, dumb and completely ignorant on this matter. You have failed, again, and again and again. You have not answered any of my questions, and are only interested in jabbing others from your self imposed cognitive confinement. I don’t expect you to accept my criticism. You are just too out of touch with reality. TROLL B

          • The human mind is a marvelous information filter, adept at blocking out those facts that contradict what we’d like to believe.

          • Amen and hallelujah

          • “However, you are not free to force that religion on other people.”

            This is one reason morality in society has fallen to new lows. No one is *forcing* you to listen or follow it. Free speech. It’s in the Constitution. BTW, there is *NO* right to not be offended. That concept does not exist in the Constitution.

          • Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?

            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          • Lie?! LOL!!! Some people wouldn’t recognize truth even if it were to jump up and slap them in the face. Some people are so gullible, that they are suckered into believing falsehood, despite information to the contrary.

          • Nobody’s forcing religion on you. That’s silly.

          • She’s no ‘lady’ Steve. She’s a troll.

          • Your comment is disagree for the sake of disagreement. Morality is well defined and you know it. If you choose to be immoral you will be judged like it or not, believe it or not. However my God forgives and his son died for the sins you committ and haven’t yet committed. Show some respect for God sakes. Your rights! Ha!

          • Why do you?

          • What lies?

          • You just used that comment. Go to comment 684 on down your troll list.

          • Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.

            Benjamin Franklin

        • Apparently, if the words don’t explicitly appear in the constitution then the idea they refer to isn’t constitutionally guaranteed.

          Over the past 200 years the Supreme Court has shaped the U.S. Cnstitution to contain a clear separation of church and state that protects every religion equally.

          • You are an idiot void of any form of intelligence! READ WHAT I AND SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE HAVE WRITTEN. The term “separation of church and state” was made by Thomas Jefferson in a speech. It was stated to keep the government from favoring or establishing their own religion. It was never stated to keep Christianity out of the government as it was Christianity that built this country. There is nothing Constitutional about that statement and no one stated that there was. The Supreme Court does not have the power to shape the U.S. Constitution or anything else. That is the job of Congress. Neither have done anything along that line. The phrase is mainly used by opposing lawyers, Atheists, ACLU, people like you, and others to try and topple and expel Christianity from the foundation of our government, but they are unable to do so because that is unconstitutional. It is a part of our GOD GIVEN RIGHTS!!!! YOU SEE, OUR GOVERNMENT DID NOT GIVE US THESE RIGHTS, THEY AFFIRMED THE FACT THAT THEY ARE OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS AND SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED ON BY YOU OR ANYONE ELSE!!!!!

          • Where in the Constiution is it stated that America is a Christian nation?
            .
            Which Founder’s political belief would have supported establishment of a theocracy?
            .
            The majority of the Founders were Diests, not Christians.
            .
            After the Civil War, there was an attack on the Constitution by religious estremists who wanted references to Jesus and Christianity added.
            .
            Oh, and by the way, that group was known as the NRA, i.e., The National Reform Association

          • All US settlers were from some form of Christian religion. If your going to threw out a word, know how to spell it. Both [theists and deists] asserted belief in one supreme God, the Creator… . But the theist taught that God remained actively interested in and operative in the world which he had made, whereas the Deist maintained that God endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then surrendered it wholly to the operation of these powers acting as second causes. They were still Christians.
            As for our founding fathers…..The signers of the Declaration of Independence were a profoundly intelligent, religious and ethically-minded group. Four of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were current or former full-time preachers, and many more were the sons of clergymen. Other professions held by signers include lawyers, merchants, doctors and educators. These individuals, too, were for the most part active churchgoers and many contributed significantly to their churches both with contributions as well as their service as lay leaders. The signers were members of religious denominations at a rate that was significantly higher than average for the American Colonies during the late 1700s.
            The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

          • Sorry, but you’re wrong again. Stop just listening to maladjusted liberals and do some real research. Our Founders were religious, honorable Christians, and America was founded on the principles of Judeo – Christian beliefs. You show all the signs of having been schooled by atheists or agnostics. Typical of today’s public schools and many private schools as well that are bent on deconstructing America’s true history. This ‘trend’ is being led by enemies of those who prize moral freedom.

          • No, they were not.

            America was not founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs.

            You are probably ,any years younger than my

            Cut the crap about trying to make people feel small or unintelligible because they use names to describe others and events. Don’t you get it akdummy?

          • AKLady, The Supreme Court, has NOT shaped the Constitution. It’s sole purpose is to interpret the laws passed by Congress to see if they meet Constitutional guidelines. They are not a law-making body. Congress is the law-making body of the government. I suggest you spend less time challenging every post and spend more time studying the Constitution. And while you are at it, study the language of that day and the government and monarchy of England. That is the only way to truly understand the spirit of the Constitution.

      • I remember when there was no separation between church and state and everyone was a lot happier and we didn’t have all the crap with liberalism. We have never been anything like the muslims nor will we ever be.

        • God Mary, where did you get an education.
          the idea of separation of church and state has been in the forefront of public discourse since they signed the declaration.
          Jefferson wrote about IT at length.
          For MANY, the reason for coming to America was Freedom FROM religious persecution.
          kind of WHY the state is supposed to stay away from IT.
          hence “public schools” are “the state”.

          • Mary is closer to the truth than you are.

          • Thank you!

            Please enlighten us.

            ok lets hear that part of the constitution “includes” Religion.
            the only time Religion is mentioned in the constitution, it specifically forbids there being a Religious test.
            God & Christianity are not mentioned in the Constitution

          • Christianity. It will enable this country to survive. Otherwise God will remove his protection from our nation. The Founders new this and they stated it in their letters.

          • Why do you think our forefathers settled here and listed specific freedoms. Those freedoms were taken from them in England and they wanted to be free and not have to follow the Church of England or be jailed for something they said. Yes, it has been a great subject over time but I remember days when church and state were not separated and it was a much more settled and peaceful era in our history. Our forefathers made a point of including religion in setting up our Republic.
            Maybe I should ask you where you were educated and what they are not teaching in schools today. The liberals have changed the history books to their leftist leaning the way they think it should have happened but that doesn’t change the facts.

          • ” Our forefathers made a point of including religion in setting up our Republic”
            OH REALLY?
            ok lets hear that part of the constitution “includes” Religion.
            the only time Religion is mentioned in the constitution, it specifically forbids there being a Religious test.
            God & Christianity are not mentioned in the Constitution.

          • Our rights are God given. Our laws and Constitution are based on Christian laws. Freemasons are religious and very much the fabric of this country. Their bylaws are the grounds for many state Constitutions and all mention God in some form.. In our courts you swear in on a Bible. Every Congressman, Senator, President, etc are sworn in on a Bible. Only one refused and swore in on a Quran, though not many know it. No matter how you want to look at it, this is a Christian country. You cannot visit a government building or memorial in DC without seeing Biblical verses or references. Whether you like it or not, IN GOD WE TRUST, is our motto.

          • ” No matter how you want to look at it, this is a Christian country.”

            sorry, that is NOT in the constitution.

            and

            IN GOD WE TRUST was added in the fifties when conservatives were afraid of commies.

          • Actually you are wrong as usual. Here’s a little history lesson for you…..

            The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout persons throughout the country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity on United States coins. From Treasury Department records, it appears that the first such appeal came in a letter dated November 13, 1861. It was written to Secretary Chase by Rev. M. R. Watkinson, Minister of the Gospel from Ridleyville, Pennsylvania, and read:

            Dear Sir: You are about to submit your annual report to the Congress respecting the affairs of the national finances.
            One fact touching our currency has hitherto been seriously overlooked. I mean the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins.
            You are probably a Christian. What if our Republic were not shattered beyond reconstruction? Would not the antiquaries of succeeding centuries rightly reason from our past that we were a heathen nation? What I propose is that instead of the goddess of liberty we shall have next inside the 13 stars a ring inscribed with the words PERPETUAL UNION; within the ring the allseeing eye, crowned with a halo; beneath this eye the American flag, bearing in its field stars equal to the number of the States united; in the folds of the bars the words GOD, LIBERTY, LAW.

            This would make a beautiful coin, to which no possible citizen could object. This would relieve us from the ignominy of heathenism. This would place us openly under the Divine protection we have personally claimed. From my hearth I have felt our national shame in disowning God as not the least of our present national disasters.

            To you first I address a subject that must be agitated.

            As a result, Secretary Chase instructed James Pollock, Director of the Mint at Philadelphia, to prepare a motto, in a letter dated November 20, 1861:

            Dear Sir: No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense. The trust of our people in God should be declared on our national coins.

            You will cause a device to be prepared without unnecessary delay with a motto expressing in the fewest and tersest words possible this national recognition.

            It was found that the Act of Congress dated January 18, 1837, prescribed the mottoes and devices that should be placed upon the coins of the United States. This meant that the mint could make no changes without the enactment of additional legislation by the Congress. In December 1863, the Director of the Mint submitted designs for new one-cent coin, two-cent coin, and three-cent coin to Secretary Chase for approval. He proposed that upon the designs either OUR COUNTRY; OUR GOD or GOD, OUR TRUST should appear as a motto on the coins. In a letter to the Mint Director on December 9, 1863, Secretary Chase stated:

            I approve your mottoes, only suggesting that on that with the Washington obverse the motto should begin with the word OUR, so as to read OUR GOD AND OUR COUNTRY. And on that with the shield, it should be changed so as to read: IN GOD WE TRUST.

            The Congress passed the Act of April 22, 1864. This legislation changed the composition of the one-cent coin and authorized the minting of the two-cent coin. The Mint Director was directed to develop the designs for these coins for final approval of the Secretary. IN GOD WE TRUST first appeared on the 1864 two-cent coin.

            Another Act of Congress passed on March 3, 1865. It allowed the Mint Director, with the Secretary’s approval, to place the motto on all gold and silver coins that “shall admit the inscription thereon.” Under the Act, the motto was placed on the gold double-eagle coin, the gold eagle coin, and the gold half-eagle coin. It was also placed on the silver dollar coin, the half-dollar coin and the quarter-dollar coin, and on the nickel three-cent coin beginning in 1866. Later, Congress passed the Coinage Act of February 12, 1873. It also said that the Secretary “may cause the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to be inscribed on such coins as shall admit of such motto.”

            The use of IN GOD WE TRUST has not been uninterrupted. The motto disappeared from the five-cent coin in 1883, and did not reappear until production of the Jefferson nickel began in 1938. Since 1938, all United States coins bear the inscription. Later, the motto was found missing from the new design of the double-eagle gold coin and the eagle gold coin shortly after they appeared in 1907. In response to a general demand, Congress ordered it restored, and the Act of May 18, 1908, made it mandatory on all coins upon which it had previously appeared. IN GOD WE TRUST was not mandatory on the one-cent coin and five-cent coin. It could be placed on them by the Secretary or the Mint Director with the Secretary’s approval.

            The motto has been in continuous use on the one-cent coin since 1909, and on the ten-cent coin since 1916. It also has appeared on all gold coins and silver dollar coins, half-dollar coins, and quarter-dollar coins struck since July 1, 1908.

          • Which God might that be? There are many gods and many religions.

          • THE CHRISTIAN GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • I see that coins happen a HUNDRED YEARS after we became a country.
            certainly not something the FF were behind.

            as for the Pledge and paper money

            “On this day in 1956, two years after pushing to have the phrase “under
            God” inserted into the pledge of allegiance, President Dwight D.
            Eisenhower signs a law officially declaring “In God We Trust” to be the
            nation’s official motto. The law, P.L. 84-140, also mandated that the
            phrase be printed on all American paper currency. The phrase had been
            placed on U.S. coins since the Civil War when, according to the
            historical association of the United States Treasury, religious
            sentiment reached a peak. Eisenhower’s treasury secretary, George
            Humphrey, had suggested adding the phrase to paper currency as well.”

          • It wasn’t from commie fear as you stated. You and AKLady need to pull your stupidity together and stop cherry picking. We are all growing tired of it.

          • the 50’s shit WAS.

            stop lying so much and then you won’t hear from me.

            lets remember, you are the fool who thinks we are a Christian nation.

          • It’s a shame you don’t follow your own advice. I and many others are tired of your lying bull. I give you the facts that you can’t handle.
            You are the bigger fool, for thinking we aren’t.

          • America is not now, nor has it ever been a Christian country.

          • It has always been and always will be A NATION UNDER ONE GOD.

          • From the article that you have been selectively choosing bits and pieces that suit your stupidity………

            “If we are talking about 13 colonies belonging to the British Empire, whose king presided over an imperial church, then yes, British citizens residing in those colonies lived under Christian rule.

            Those colonies were founded as outposts of a Christian nation. With American independence, however, the British monarchy lost control over its American subjects. Champions of American liberty then celebrated their religious as well as political independence.”

            What you fail to realize is the fact Americans have always had a love affair with their God. It is because of this we are generally able to accept people for who they truly are without question. It is people like you that dirty the very air we breathe.

          • “The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
            –John Adams

          • Take things out of context much. That statement was made during the Tripoli Treaty when we were dealing with Muslim pirates and was not stated by Adams. Statements were made to stop them from pirating our ships. That is also where our Marines come in.

            In 1797, six years after the adoption of the Bill of Rights, the United States government signed a treaty with the Muslim nation of Tripoli that contained the following statement (numbered Article 11 in the treaty):

            As the Government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the law, religion or tranquility of Musselmen; and as the states never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mohometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinion shall ever produce an interruption of harmony existing between the two countries.

            So far as we can tell, the inclusion of these words in the treaty had no negative political ramifications for the treaty whatsoever. On the contrary, the treaty was approved by President John Adams and his Secretary of State Timothy Pickering, and was then ratified by the Senate without objection. According to an information sheet provided to us by Ed Buckner of the Atlanta Freethought Society:

            The Journal of the Executive Proceedings of the United States Senate clearly specifies that the treaty was read aloud on the floor of the Senate and that copies of the treaty were printed “for the use of the Senate.” Nor is it plausible to argue that perhaps Senators voted for the treaty without being aware of the famous words. The treaty was quite short, requiring only two or three pages to reprint in most treaty books today–and printed, in its entirely, on but one page (sometimes the front page) of U.S. newspapers of the day. The lack of any recorded argument about the wording, as well as the unanimous vote and the and the wide reprinting of the words in the press of 1797, suggests that the idea that the government was not a Christian one was widely and easily accepted at the time.

            Accomodationists frequently note that Article 11 appeared only in the English version of the treaty; in the Arabic version a letter-like page of gibberish appears where Article 11 should be. The Arabic version was translated by Joel Barlow, the diplomatic representative that negotiated the treaty on behalf of the United States. Barlow was a good friend of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and James Monroe, and was most likely a deist or atheist. It is almost certain that he authored Article 11 in the English version. Many accomodationists seem to think that the absence of Article 11 in the Arabic version has something to do with Barlow, and that this absence should somehow blunt the separationist impact of the English Article 11.

            In point of fact, we have no idea if Barlow is connected to the page of gibberish in the Arabic version. The “substitute” page was not discovered until 1930; what happened to the treaty before that time is unknown. The Article, if it was originally in the Arabic version, could have been lost at any time between 1797 and 1930. And there is certainly no reason to assume that Article 11 wasn’t in the original Arabic version: A Muslim nation would surely have welcomed Article 11 as an assurance of American intentions with respect to religion.

            More generally, we can’t imagine how the absence of Article 11 in the Arabic version effects the separationist argument. It was the English version of the treaty that was approved by President Adams and Secretary Pickering, and this version unquestionably contained Article 11. Similarly, when the Senate ratified the treaty, they did so knowing full well that the English version declared that the United States was not a Christian nation. The separationist implications of the treaty can’t be escaped by arguing that the Arabic version may not have contained Article 11; the President, Secretary of State, and Senate thought it did, but approved the treaty anyway.

            The treaty of Tripoli remained on the books for eight years, at which time the treaty was renegotiated, and Article 11 was dropped.

          • Hostile to the political theology of both the Catholic Church and Protestant kings, Thomas Paine celebrated a vision for America that reflected the democratic god of nature and reason.

          • Thomas Paine believed in one God and it was a Christian God. How he chose to follow was void of church because he became disillusioned by them.

          • Thomas Jefferson stated “(I)t does me no injury for my neighbor to believe in twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

          • AGAIN OUT OF CONTEXT. THE STATEMENT BY JEFFERSON WAS BASED ON HIS SUPPORT FOR FREEDOM OF RELIGION, NOT FREEDOM FROM RELIGION.

          • Well said. Thank you for explaining it to these bone headed liberals.
            obama did have a judge sworn in recently on a Koran which to me makes the oath null and void.

          • Freedom of religion and they did not put any restrictions on where or when you could practice your religion. All of our government offices have always had God mentioned and also our currency.

          • our currency got the words GOD 100 years AFTER we had a constitution, during the civil war.
            paper money and the pledge of allegiance not until the 50’s

            so NOT something the FF wanted.
            something the Religious nuts pushed.

          • That is not the point. The point is that our FF did not leave God out of anything they did, including building a government from scratch. Liberals just can’t deal with facts.

          • ” The point is that our FF did not leave God out of anything they did,”

            God you are Dim.
            God is NOT in the Constitution, which IS our guiding document that YOU cons love to wrap yourselves IN.

            you still need to prove that the FF “included” religion in the Constitution.

          • WEREN’T YOU supposed to be find where the CONSTITUTION says that religion was INCLUDED.

            maybe I should refresh the low info cons memory.

            ” Our forefathers made a point of including religion in setting up our Republic.”

            so PROVE THAT.

            not tap dance about how we have God on our money that happened a 100 years later.

          • I have talked with you before and no matter what I say you are a liberal and will never admit that God was very much a presence in our FF setting up a new government. I never said specifically that God was mentioned in the Constitution but everything they did was based on the freedoms listed and God was one of the freedoms that we could worship him anytime anywhere without fear of being thrown in jail.

          • “God was one of the freedoms that we could worship him anytime anywhere without fear of being thrown in jail.”

            and no one is saying that you can’t.

          • Yes, it is being done every day right here in the U.S.

          • but citing examples was way to hard for Mary.

          • Freedom from religious persecution is what Reality said.

            You have essentially said the exact same thing.

            Why are you arguing?

          • Then why are the Feds doing all the investigations for Christian violations? I agree that the State should be in charge of education, not the Federal government.

          • “Then why are the Feds doing all the investigations for Christian violations?”

            well they DON’T.

            the bakers in Oregon was charged by the STATE.

            civil right violations of course IS a Federal law as well.

        • “we didn’t have all the crap with liberalism”
          the Founding Fathers were the “liberals” of the time, silly Mary.
          without their “liberalism” we would be having afternoon tea and crumpets still.

          • I always thought he looked more like Howdy Doody !

          • This is specifically true, both barack and michelle “voluntarily surrendered” their licenses, which is usually done to prevent being disbarred, as I am sure you know but wish to conceal. Similar to a “nolo contender” plea restricts further action. Neither is a plea of innocence or guilt.

          • They sure did wiggle out of that. Now it’s catching up to them at a tremendous cost to the American people. Libtards are costing us a fortune. They make the worst, stupidest decisions known possible to man.

          • LMAO!!!! All of the other adjectives are true!

          • According to some news reports I’ve read in the recent past, both Barack and Michele were both disbarred. Whether they were reinstated, I don’t know.

          • I think you are confusing surrendering a license with having one taken away.

            To maintasin any professional license, one must continue to take courses.
            Maybe you could inform the world where the President and/or the First Lady could attend law school without causing a security issue?

          • ‘surrendering their licenses’ is akin to ‘quit before being fired’. Pure and simple.

          • ‘obama has never been disbarred’…is that on his resume? Something to be proud of? Most of the time he was in the Senate, he voted ‘present’ or just didn’t show up. He has stayed under the radar, so there wasn’t too much on him. Some dug up facts before the election, but the libtards were too infatuated with him (i.e. Chris Wallace’s thrill up his leg) to make any coherent decisions. It was akin to a cult leader giving the kool aid to his ‘followers’!

          • Tt is a lie that “canservatives” should be ashamed of.

          • Wow! Well said drrocko! I agree completely.

          • Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?

            The pope is just a man. No better or worse than any other child of God. Just because you believe he’s so great, doesn’t make it true in God’s eyes, only the Catholics who treat him as a god hold him in such high command. Christians respect him, but he is no god. He’s the equal to the head of the Baptist, or Lutherans, or any other sect.

          • We do not treat him as a “god.” Someone has to lead, and he leads on earth. Period.

          • Catholics do not consider the Pope to be a god.

            The Pope os the “President” of the Catholic Church.

            The fact of the matter is that the Catholic Church remains the world’s largest religious sect.

          • You must have an awful lot of power if you can excomunicate people and have them deported to Japan and put in prison. Personally, I think that you are talking out of your @$$.

        • Strange facts — the Catholic Church is the first Christian religion to exist.

        • I think that many consider the Pope to be the false prophet. Some consider Obama to be the anti-Christ. I won’t believe it is him until someone shoots him fatally and he doesn’t die.

      • You are either nut or crazy, Jay. I feel the same way about the pope, he’s lacking a few cell in the old head. I do hope God sends him a clue.

        • oh yeah? lets see about that soon i will have my own Pokemon cards and i will sign up in the pokemon card turnaments so this means lets have a battle to find out who is right i challenge you to a Pokemon battle

    • Are pope and godfather interchangeable?

    • “I don’t know how he got to be Pope”
      a group of cardinals got together one day and decided he was the most deserving Catholic on the planet.
      your education certainly has some big gaps.

    • Mary,
      Actually the Pope does fit the role of a Pope. But that position is not Scriptural. I approve of the Pope’s belief in helping others. But all charity is not a lasting answer for helping the poor. They have to do their part.

      • I understand where the leader of the church would believe in helping others. But he goes beyond that and is interfering in other country’s government and telling them what to do. No church has the authority or should even suggest what a leader of any country should do. That is up to the voters. What the Pope was telling the U.S. to do was to let all these illegals come in and give them amnesty. There are several million and the taxpayers are supporting a good many of them as well as the sanctuary cities taking federal money. That is my point.

        • Mary,
          I thought I might get a rise on this issue but have not so far. As for the Pope, you have more say in what the US does than he does. I understand his compassion for the poor. But we need to work on our own poor before we take on any more. I do not oppose immigrants. We all have roots in immigrants from the past. MY family goes back to the 1700’s as they were immigrants from Norway.

          • I do not oppose immigrants as long as they come in legally. I resent the illegals because they are breaking our laws, cannot support themselves so taxpayers are housing them, giving them free healthcare, smartphones, big screen TVs and then they turn around and are suing us for their living conditions and they want free college tuition. Why should they have special treatment over our own citizens at our expense. My family goes back to the Mayflower but that has nothing to do with present day problems.

          • marysweet,
            I totally concur with your point of view. It is mine as well.

          • That is good to hear. What I find hard to believe is all the people who are calling for immigration reform when all we need to do is enforce the laws we have now. That is unless they want to make it easier to come in legally or illegally and just give them all amnesty. I think the amnesty thing is what they want added. That just encourages more and more illegals.

          • Marysweet,
            What it means to me is that we must get control of our borders and then begin the process of undoing Obama’s mess. I see our walls are not being very successful. We need troops.

          • I am in complete agreement with you regarding control of the borders. obama has just completely opened them to anyone coming in. He has told Border Patrol if they try to stop anyone or do their jobs, he will fire them.
            As for the border, we need to build a complete wall, not just pieces here and there. And it needs to be a much sturdier wall than what has been built. Israel has done it and we could take a lesson from them.

          • marysweet,
            What I see on the TV program is that cartels tunnel under walls as fast as we build them. When we have adequate people on the border to stop the illegals and the drugs, we make much more progress when it comes to security..

          • Yes, I am very well aware of the tunnels. Israel has the same problems but somehow they have managed to overcome it and have found a solution because they were being attacked constantly. I think we could learn a lot from them.

          • Marysweet,
            Israel does have problems with tunnels just as we do. When the find one, they blow it up. We pour them full of cement. But the bottom line is that until the tunnel is discovered and destroyed, it works.

          • But the difference is they work at it 24/7. Our goverrnment has NEVER put a full effort into securing our borders. I live not far from the border and it ‘s non stop traffic with human trafficking and drugs.

          • Marysweet,
            Our border folks do fill the tunnels with concrete at a dug hole when they find one. They generally do not have the option to blow it up without killing innocent people. But how long does it take the bad guys to dig around a concrete block?

          • In case you hadn’t heard, obama has forbidden Border Patrol to stop anyone, look for tunnels or do anything if they do find a tunnel. obama has said he will fire any Border Patrol who does their job. They don’t need the tunnels now that obama has completely opened the borders and no one is to be stopped or detained or given a court date – NOTHING is to be done. They might as well all go home and just collect their paychecks because they are not allowed to do a thing.

          • MarySweet,

            That kind of crap needs to stop. One more reason to pass on Sanders and Hillary.

          • I’ve been saying that for years. If we don’t do something NOW, it will be too late. obama has dropped his pretense now that he is an American.

          • MAryaweet,
            Obama is NOT a US citizen and never has been.

          • I know. I’ve been saying that for years. He was born a kenyan muslim communist and will be that until the day he dies. He came here as a foreign student and never left.

          • Marysweet,
            actually Obama”s father did not stay in the US that long. He returned to Kenya. But per the Constitution, a “natural born” citizen is a citizen of the country in which his father is a citizen. HIs father was a Kenyan, period. He was never a US citizen.

          • I completely agree!

    • You’re right Marysweet, his two predessors were homosexual child predators. He’s just a busy body liberal.

      • Yeah, the catholic church has quite a long history of protecting their pedophile priests and just moving them from one city to another until they were on the verge of being caught and then move them again. The current pope is way too liberal for me.

    • “The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature; and if men are now sufficiently enlightened to disabuse themselves of artifice, imposture, hypocrisy, and superstition, they will consider this event as an era in their history. Although the detail of the formation of the American governments is at present little known or regarded either in Europe or in America, it may hereafter become an object of curiosity. It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of Heaven, more than those at work upon ships or houses, or laboring in merchandise or agriculture; it will forever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses.”

  11. trump is right on this one

  12. Not taking away from the value of the Pope for his religion, just think he has no idea what has been going on in this country for the past 7 years or more. Let him tend to his business with his religion and, how many more priests are being perverts with young boys? Clean your own pot before cleaning mine please. Sorry, got off on a rant there. You get where I’m coming from if you have read other posts from me. Is your powder dry?

  13. The pope is a fly by night trouble maker and wants everything the Catholic Ways including probably allowing
    the priests to play with the body parts of little boys! He gets by with it by being allowed to rule over the catholic

    churches in America and around the World. Each Country
    should have its own Pope and run the church by thats Countrys Laws! The problems would be settle then!

    • “including probably allowing the priests to play with the body parts of little boys!”
      oh, so you are a complete ASS.
      good to know you are the complete package of American STUPID.

      • No…money talked and Bulls-it walked the priests across the World free to do what they wanted and where they wanted.
        Many Children across the World suffered and only got money to shut up and to agree with the officials of the catholic church?

      • My wife is Catholic. Her Priest turned out to have a love child so apparently he felt that celibacy was not for him. I’ve never really understood the reason for that. If priests could get married there might not be so many child molesters in the Church. Incidentally, my wife’s priest had to flee back to Ireland to avoid arrest for the molesting of children. So, I guess that allowing priests to get married wouldn’t totally solve the problem. It might help a little, though.

        • “If priests could get married there might not be so many child molesters in the Church”

          on this we agree.

          • I believe that celibacy actually keeps a lot of straight men from becoming Priests. This makes the ratio of gay Priests higher than it would normally be. It does seem that the majority of children molested are boys. My wife’s Priest molested boys even though he had a child with a woman. Anyway, he’s in Ireland now and they won’t allow him to be extradited. Celibacy did not start with the church’s founding. I don’t know why it was made a rule. I remember a few years back hearing of a gay Priest that cruised gay bars and he said that having sex with men did not violate his vow of celibacy. I don’t understand that at all, but if I were running things there, celibacy would be done away with. I’m not involved, however, so they can do whatever they want.

  14. And…the pope needs to realize if isis ever gets to him his head will be on a stick showing their victory! Every muslim and this includes isis wants to rid off the earth every religion except muslim! Wake Up Americans and take heed!

    • how low info does one have to be to think ISIS will get to the Vatican?

      First off, low info con, the religion is ISLAM, not Muslim.

        There is something fascinating about a group of people that are without morals, honor or integrity talking about another group

      • Now that is hilarious. Since when do you know anything about Christians? I doubt that the pope is even a Christian since they don’t teach the Biblical way of salvation. The only reason why any person will rot in hell is NOT believing in the Lord Jesus Christ by faith alone.
        John 3:36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

            you seem confused about “socialism” so I thought I would give you a quick reminder so you don’t make a fool of yourself so often.

          • As I said government control. He fits it to a T. And I’m catholic, but the catholic religon has been highjacked by socialists wanting one world religons, governments etc. Same thing some are trying to advocate here. Now you can say that’s not so and that I’m a fool, but then you would only be fooling yourself. Nobody needs a history lesson from you, we all know what happens to socialist societies. Advocating for open borders, all that will succeed in doing is undermining our economy, what better way for the government to try and take control. And to think we have an open socialist running for president. The alternative would be mrs. bullshit.

          • “religon has been highjacked by socialists wanting one world religons, governments ”

            Actually, according to the Bible, The Papacy is “The BEAST”! So, The Pope is 1) An Anti-Christ, 2) The FALSE Prophet, or 3) BOTH 1 and 2!

            READ The Bible and recognize that the Pope wears the number 666 in/on his mitre (hat) and “thought to change days, times, and God”s LAW (Ten Commandments). Catholics also worship “dead people) who, according to The Bible, can NOT See, Hear, Speak, Think, or intercede for you with ANYONE as the are DEAD!!

        • A-men but prove that to the Pope. Millions have left the catholic church since the late 1970’s over the Truth that is not
          told in the catholic church!

          • Yes, and I have some very good friends who are now studying God’s Word instead of the manmade documents of the RCC.

      • So what, don’t care what some jackoff thinks of christians.

      • What??
        The pope is the head of the
        Catholic Church..
        Nothing else.

      • The Pope is not the top Christian. He is the top Catholic Christian. Other denominations aren’t required to recognize him as their leader.

        • ALL Christian religions started with Catholics, in case your shy on Historical facts.

          • The Church that I belonged to did not branch off of the Catholic Church. If you go back far enough it probably branched of from a church that branched off of a church ad finitum that branched off of the Catholic Church. I have no alegience to the Catholic Church because I never belonged to it. Try telling a Mormon that their Church branched off of the Catholic Church. I’m not as stupid as you might think. I reiterate: the Pope is the top Catholic. Other churches do not have to recognize him as anything unless they want to. The Catholic Church branched off of Judaism. Jesus was a Jew. Judaism was probably a branch off of an earlier religion. I don’t think that Adam and Eve were Jews.

          • do Morons believe in Jesus?

            then they are the same roots.
            ANY religion that has Jesus in IT, is an offshoot of the original “religion” which was/is catholic/Christianity.

            why so desperate to get away from your origins?

            so what other religion was dominating EU during the dark ages?

          • I don’t know what Morons believe. I think that Mormons believe in Jesus. I believe that they place him just about as high as Joseph Smith. It sounds like you are trying to convince me to become a Catholic. That’s not very likely to happen. I believe that all Christian sects and Judaism started with Abraham. Islam claims to be connected somehow, also. Personally, I don’t care which came first. Christianity branched off from Judaism. When I was a child I was told that all Catholics were going to hell because they worshipped graven images. I never believed that, but it shows that there can be wide differences between churches. A few protestant churches are very much like the Catholic church other than having no alegience to the Pope and allowing women priests. However there are many protestant churches that are completely unlike the Catholic church. The original “religion” would be whatever Adam & Eve’s religion was called. I don’t think that the Bible names it.

          • “I don’t know what Morons believe. I think that Mormons believe in Jesus”

            a Freudian slip on my part.

            BUT the point is Mormons come from Christianity.

          • I’m not going to argue about this any longer since there’s really no point. Yes, all Christian Churches are connected in one way or another. There are many people that don’t consider Mormons as Christians because of the way their Church is structured. Personally, I consider Mormons mostly to be fine people, although I can’t really accept their beliefs. They do believe in taking care of their own and I can’t really fault anyone for that.

          • I believe we were debating the issue not arguing.

          • I believe that a debate is an arguement of sorts. Otherwise we would agree.

  19. I/we love and respect Pope Francis, but he is the Pope, not a geo-political scholar. I completely agree with Mr. Trump. In fact, I’ll go a little farther. I think the Pope needs to relegate his time, thoughts, and deeds to the Catholic Church. He does not need to embroil himself in the politics of nations.

    • the Syrian refugee crisis is a Global problem.
      He sees a nation of “Christians” who act like ISIS terrorists and feels the need to speak out.
      It obviously bothers the right a great deal since they think they are closer to God than the Pope.

      • The point I was trying to make is he is dealing in secular issues. That is not his purview. He is the leader of the Catholic Church. If you look at his background, he’s been living in a socialistic world. The United States does not “officially” embrace socialism. Capitalism is one of the things that has made America great.

        • “he is dealing in secular issues”
          SO?
          US Politicians mouthing off about religion should not be in their purview either considering we are a SECULAR NATION.
          but that does not stop the GOP.

          • U.S. politicians are not the Pope! I would like to think he has a higher calling.

          • that does not change the fact that GOP politicians wear Religion on their sleeves while America is a secular nation.
            the Pope IS doing what he considers his “calling”.
            it just makes all you conservatives look evil and that bothers you.

          • America is not a secular nation, we conservatives do not wear religion on our sleeves, and nothing bothers me except suffering fools.

          • well silly conservative human the alternative is a THEOCRACY.

            and since THAT is not what is happening, perhaps you would like to explain your silliness.

          • Apparently, you have problems with comprehension, I think you should change your moniker to Brain Scan.

          • was that a con proving me wrong?

            looks a lot like the con bobbing and weaving after getting smacked down for extreme silliness.

          • “we conservatives do not wear religion on our sleeves,”

            so ignorant as well as disingenuous.

            the GOP candidates tell everyone that THEY are the MOST religious and WILL take the country BACK to God.

            if THAT is not wearing religion on their sleeves, well, you must be a brainwashed conservative.

            Trump even had to make up bible verses to “appear” religious.

          • Do me a favor, stupid, please do not contact me again!

          • sure.
            as soon as you stop LYING about my country and president.

        • “Capitalism is one of the things that has made America great.”

          another low info human that thinks we practice Free Market Capitalism.

          we practice REGULATED capitalism is a Democratic Socialist society.

          perhaps it’s time for us to educate the conservative.

          Social Security is Democratic Socialism.
          Medicare is Democratic Socialism.
          Medicaid is Democratic Socialism
          Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)
          The US highway system is Democratic Socialism (and in the Constitution)
          our electric grid is Democratic Socialism
          Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism
          now if you want to discuss FULL socialism, that would be the VA.

    • “Francis has never shrouded his feelings on the subject. In July 2014, he released a statement that said: “Many people forced to emigrate suffer, and often die tragically; many of their rights are violated, they are obliged to separate from their families and, unfortunately, continue to be the subject of racist and xenophobic attitudes.”

      American conservatives are the poster child for “racist and xenophobic attitudes”
      those who support Trump are the WORST America has to offer.

  20. I think the Pope means well, charity in his heart. But he does not understand American Sovereignty. It’s not that we don’t want to be charitable to the “refugees”, it’s that we don’t want to become slaves to them.

  21. I WANT A SMART BUS MAN WITH IQ OF 146+ FOR PRES, WE DO NOT NEED 1ST YR. SEN/GOV/HILLIARY FOR PRES. DONALD TRUMP IS THE MAN

    • who went bankrupt 4 times?
      who was a Dem 4 years ago?

      • Reality, get your FACTS straight. Mr. Trump did NOT go bankrupt four times. Four companies that he bought which were on the verge of bankruptcy went under. It has not to do with him; it was the four unstable businesses he had tried to save. There is a vast difference. Please, you lie like Cruz, OWEbama and Rubio.

      • Who was the first felon president ? Jimmy Carter gave Clinton a pardon – but he is still a felon ! For dodging the draft ! Public record – look it up skooter !

        • Jimmy Carter was pres almost 20 years before Clinton, making that impossible and you a Low Info fool of the right wing.

          • Clinton was ordered to report for the draft in 1969 and didn’t bother – he was charged with being a fugitive from the draft and was subject to arrest – Carter was elected prez in 1976 and pardoned Clinton in 1977 ! Clinton was in Arkansas politics, while a fugitive from the draft ! A coward and a draft dodger ! You liberals sure know how to pick em !

          • ” he was charged with being a fugitive from the draft and was subject to arrest ”
            THAT is a complete LIE.
            Carter DID pardon draft dodgers, but Bill was not one of them FOOL of the right.
            MAYBE you could link me to some proof.

          • You want the damn dates slick ! I got em ! Clinton reg. for draft 9-64 ! Classifed 1-A 7-28-69 !Ordered to report 10-30-69 ! Doesn’t show up ! Charged with failure to report ! Runs for congress in 1974 while a fugitive ! Pardoned by Carter 1-21-77 ! Information from Cdr. Hamilton McWhorter USN (ret) Satisfied scooter ???

          • ” he was charged with being a fugitive from the draft and was subject to arrest ”

            LIAR.

            https://www.google.com/search?q=clinton+draft+deferment&ie=&oe=
            here are 55 THOUSAND sources that tell you that YOU are LYING.

          • Kalifornicate ! Liberal bastion ! Figures ! Won’t believe a Retired Navy Commander who was involved with the case ! You’d rather believe a guy why asks a senate investigating committee what the definition of is is !

          • tell me fool, what does a Navy commander have to do with Clinton evading the draft.
            the fact REMAINS that there was NEVER any warrant for Clinton like you LIED about.

          • Got that wrong too slick – A thousand years ago a wise man said – The mind of the wise man leans to the right – While the mind of the fool leans to the left ! You are proof he was right !

          • well moron, since I provided the link and YOU Flap those Gums, I guess I win.

          • Click on the first one scooter ! His uncle and a guy named Britt skated him out ! He’s still a draft dodger ! And it even says the “records are incomplete” and several of the people close to his case are dead !

          • well Dim bulb, I am aware he skirted the draft just like Cheney and the hundreds of Conservatives.
            YOU were the idiot claiming he had warrants out for his arrest BLA BLA.
            we call that LYING here in America.

        • “Who was the first felon president ”
          Richard Nixon should have been, followed by Ronny Reagan for Iran contra.

          • Neither even charged ! Clinton however was charged ! Carter had to pardon him – or cigar diddle boy Billy was headed for Leavenworth Kansas !

      • That was a business BK-it’s done all the time! A man has a right to change his party affiliation as a result of seeing the damage; I did, for sure after Satan was elected in 2008!

  22. THE POPE SHOULD STICK TO HIS RELIGIOUS SHTICK AND STOP TRYING TO INFLUENCE THE POLITICS OF WORLD LEADERS AND COUNTRIES. HE SHOULD START WATCHING HIS OWN BACK YARD WITH ALL THE MUSLIMS ENTERING ITALY. SOONER OR LATER THE VATICAN WILL BECOME MECCA AND ALL THE RELIGIOUS ITEMS WILL BE DESTROYED BY THE MUSLIM TERRORISTS….THEN… NO MORE POPE TO TELL OTHER COUNTRIES HOW TO HANDEL IMMIGRATION CONCERNS….’CAUSE THE MUSLIM TERRORISTS WILL KILL HIM

  23. The pope does not live in the real world and has no right to tell other countries what to do. He needs to keep his manmade religion for his roman catholic church. Biblical believers know what God says not what man dictates.

    • “He needs to keep his manmade religion for his roman catholic church”
      where do you think YOUR religion came from , fool.

      • I believe that Protestant religions started with Martin Luther. He was protesting the Catholic Church, hence the name Protestant. The Church that I went to as a child taught that Catholics were evil and were all bound for hell. I don’t believe that, but you might be surprized at the number of people that do. I could never be a Catholic, however, because many of their rituals appear to be idol worship to me. That was the main problem that the Church that I went to had with them.

  24. What devastating times we are living through now!
    1) A Marxist Pope from Argentina spouting that “social justice” crap; and
    2) That enraged pig-face of Trump shouting insults and logical non-sequiturs.

  25. As a catholic I am appalled by this pope…he is not spreading the word of god, he is spreading socialism!

    • you should look up the word socialism.

      (never mind, you are obviously too challenged to do that)

      Full Definition of socialism
      1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

      2 : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property

      b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

  26. TRUMP IS LIKE JESUS IN A BIBLE STORY. EVERYWHERE HE GOES THE PHARISEES (RINOS AND DEMO COMMOS) ARE TRYING TO TRAP HIM.

    FIX NEWS-THE RAT IS OUT OF THE BAG. If it isn’t obvious to the viewer by now that the once fair and impartial fairly conservative network has gone RINO. Their two biggest enemies are Trump and Carson. Sunday’s show was programmed to destroy Trump’s chances. Two months before the first debate FIX news was dropping little cheap shots and guffaws about TRUMP entering the race. Every thing they said he would not do he did. The first debate was staged to knee cap Trump and get him out of the race. Bret Baer, Chris Wallace and Megyn Behar Stern Kelly was supposed to destroy him for the Feminique movement.

    All it did was grow the Trump message. Today’s assassination attempt started with the goggle faced lawyer Peter Jr.snidely commenting that even Trump was cognitive during the debate last night. Hey Peter, get an office with windows so you can see what is going on. Then a panel of four rinos attacked Trump and Carson . The biggest charge against these two great men is they don’t know politics. What is to know? You buy a windsock and a BS machine called a teleprompter. What’s to know? You stick your hand out and say the envelope please. Take a look at the candidates. Which one can get you a job?

    Comrade Bernie Sanders, Hitlery Kasick, Jebbie Webbie Bush, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubiyat. FIX NEWS intends to destroy TRUMP. They have more labels than Obama’s communist party.

      (you are obviously too challenged to search for it)

      you can watch the silly con pulling a weapon and getting shot for the effort.

      he should have OBEYED the LAW and not gotten killed.
      similar to what you cons said about many black people shot by cops when they should have surrendered.

    • “GIVING NUKES AND CASH TO IRAN IS NOT VULGAR”
      NO, but it IS a BIG LIE.
      why do people who call themselves “patriots” LIE about America all the time?

  27. The pope could solve the immigration problems across the
    World by donating the Catholic Church built up checking accounts and stopping all the problems. He should financially set up accounts across the World and make the
    local churches oversee them and get rid of poverty!!!!

  28. How about free 1 way tickets to Vatican City for all the illegals. Maybe the pope will learn to stick to religion and not politics.

  29. I think that the pope should practice what he preaches and let anyone who wants to go into the vatican.

  30. “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars.” The Pope needs to concern himself with the Catholic Church and leave immigration policy to the country involved

  31. As a non-practicing Catholic I think that the Pope should mind his own goddamn business.

  32. In History, there have been more than one errant Pope. This man seems to be an avowed Socialist, bent on advocating the influx of Illegals and Syrian Refugees. I’d suggest he welcome them all in Rome. What is so sad in all of this is, millions of ignorant believers donate weekly, without realizing the Church could be pure, but without pure Leaders, it’s simply manipulation. Opportunism doesn’t reside just in Washington DC, it’s worldwide.

  33. Trump is a crybaby if somebody critizes him he calls them a liar

  34. Once in awhile Trump does say the right things. That screwball Pope has no business meddling in USA affairs. The same as the jerk President of Mexico saying we need to let illegals into the USA.

  35. The comment above should be made by TRUMP on National TV for all to see how he thinks and what he says when in a serious mood.
    TRUMP is a lot of things he let’s few see, too bad…..he could benefit from the exposure and we would all benefit from his being elected.

  36. “the pontiff also reportedly plans to stand with migrants at the border in a symbolic condemnation of America’s immigration laws.”
    The pope should read up on Mexico’s immigration laws before he opens his big socialist mouth!

  37. What upsets me is being lumped in with the likes of someone like the pope or catholic church. The word of God says call no man Father, but my father which is in Heaven and that so called Pope needs to keep his A** out of our country! period

  38. It’s interesting how the Pope doesnt seem to have a clkue about Mexico’s immigration laws. He shoiuld know both befoire announcing an opinion. He’s not a nobody who can get away with being ingnorant.

    • Sorry child, God’s laws are very different from man’s.
      Love thy neighbor.
      Love thy enemy.
      Forgive …
      Feed the hungry, heal the sicj…

  39. To all of the people posting rude remarks. Whatever the Pope is or does, there is no need to alienate every Catholic who sincerely believes in his legitimacy as head of the Church. They believe because it is what generations have believed. Rather, pray for a revelation. The same thing for Muslims, that they may come to the realization of their flawed faith.

  40. de bishop of rome is beats Ogayarab for being full of liberal sh_t

  41. DELETE THE SLUR CONS AND INSERT MAIN STREAM AMERICANS.

    GUESS WHO IS OUT OF THE NEWS OVERNIGHT NOT COVERED BY THE COMMUNIST PRESS?

    HINT: HE WAS BURIED IN A PINE BOX. HE WAS SHOT NINE TIMES BY 16 AGENTS. HE WAS UNARMED. HE HAD HIS ARMS OUTSTRETCHED.

    HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK. HE WAS LURED INTO AN AMBUSH. HE WAS DRYGULCHED.

    A GOOD MAN MAY HAVE BEEN DRYGULCHED BY THE GOVERNMENT.

    Word Origin

    DRY GULCH verb (used with object), Informal.

    1.

    to ambush with the intent of killing or severely mauling:

    One unarmed cowboy was murdered by 16 lawless men

    2.

    to betray by a sudden change of attitude or allegiance:

    THE CULPRITS LURED HIM INTO AN AMBUSH.

    LOOK INTO THE EYES OF THAT MAN. DO YOU SEE HATE THERE? ARE YOU TELLING ME HE COULD NOT BE REASONED WITH?

    HE FAVORS HIS RIGHT SIDE AND THAT IS WHERE HIS HOLSTER IS. HIS FRIENDS ARE SAYING HE LEFT HIS GUNS BEHIND.

    THE SHOOTERS SAY HE WAS REACHING ACROSS HIS BODY TO HIS LEFT SIDE TO GET HIS GUN. BUT OTHERS SAY HE WAS ALREADY SHOT AND WAS REACHING TO FEEL THE WOUND. HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THE WHITE TRUCK?

    55 YEARS OLD, THE FATHER OF ELEVEN. DO YOU THINK HE WANTED TO MAKE HIS WIFE A WIDOW? HIS KIDS ORPHANS?

    DID HE MAKE A RUN FOR IT FROM TWO VEHICLES BEHIND HIM BECAUSE THEY ALREADY STARTING FIRING?

    AS SOON AS HE HIT THE SNOWBANK WHY DID HE JUMP OUT IN PLAIN SIGHT AND STEP AWAY FROM THE VEHICLE AND EXTEND HIS ARMS CRUCIFIX STYLE? WHY DID THE FIRST SHOOTER FALL BACK OUT OF VIDEO RANGE. WAS THE VIDEO EDITED? WHY WAS HE NOT GIVEN A CHANCE TO SURRENDER? THEN A SECOND SHOOTER AND THEN A BACK SHOOTER WHO COULD HAVE TACKLED HIM EASY. INSTEAD HE STEPPED FORWARD AND SHOT HIM AT CLOSE RANGE IN THE BACK.. IF YOU DID THIS TO A BLACK MAN EVERY CITY IN THE COUNTRY WOULD BE ON FIRE RIGHT NOW.

    WHILE WE WATCH THE SUPERBOWL SUNDAY SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES TO PHYSICALLY BRING DOWN SOMEONE SIX FEET AWAY.

    WHERE WAS HE HEADED.? DID HE BELIEVE HE WAS GOING TO PARLAY IN PEACE WITH HIS ATTACKERS?

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PEOPLE IN THE SECOND CAR? HOW SOON DID IT TAKE FOR THEM TO GET TO THE CRIME SCENE.

    WAS LAVOY STANDING UP FOR US HIS FELLOW AMERICANS. WHY IS THE IRS, THE EPA, THE DOJ AND THE BLM JOINING IN A CONCERTED EFFORT TO WIPE OUT EVERY FARMER, RANCHER, MOM AND POP AND MANUFACTURER IN THE COUNTRY?

    WHY DID THE FBI SHOOT SO QUICKLY? WHAT WOULD J EDGAR HOOVER DO? IF THIS FBI DIRECTOR DOESN’T DO WHAT IS RIGHT THE ONCE RESPECTED GREATEST AGENCY IN THE USA WILL BE NO BETTER THAN THE KGB.

    • “WHY IS THE IRS, THE EPA, THE DOJ AND THE BLM JOINING IN A CONCERTED EFFORT TO WIPE OUT EVERY FARMER, RANCHER, MOM AND POP AND MANUFACTURER IN THE COUNTRY?”
      hey Tom, your STUPID is showing again, BIG TIME.
      WHO tells you this shit and WHY does Tom believe IT?

  42. So according to some we are supposed to allow the Pope to be our boss. Just had a missionary come speak at our church. He said that they believed that you could pray to Mary for forgiveness giving her equal authority to God, and Christ. According to the bible Christ is the only one who can save us or pardon our sins. No Pope , not Mary, or any other saint…..only Christ the son of Lord God Almighty can pardon sins and grant us eternal life!

  43. The Pope has NO PLACE telling us what to do. If he wants to take in a bunch of those savage animals, have at it. Maybe he should lead by example? I’m solidly with Trump on this and almost ALL issues. What the Pope and this lame ass administration don’t want us to know is that Sweden is in the process of deporting 80,000 of those animals, Finland is deporting 20,000 and, Saudi Arabia opted to give Jordan 10 billion dollars to keep that trash there instead of taking in even ONE of them into their country. What the Pope and this lame admonistration DON’T want us to know is just how bad things have gotten in Europe. Here is a short video that the media refused to show…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44vzMNG2fZc&feature=youtu.be

    • “Saudi Arabia opted to give Jordan 10 billion dollars to keep that trash there instead of taking in even ONE of them into their country”

      This how you prove Autinmoron is LYING

      “The World Bank reports that 1,000,000 Syrians resided in Saudi Arabia in 2013, a whopping 795 percent increase over 2010”

      http://www.newsweek.com/gulf-states-are-taking-syrian-refugees-401131

      With Saudi Arabia’s non-signatory status, the Syrians residing in Saudi Arabia are classified as “Arab brothers and sisters in distress” instead of refugees covered by UN treaties. According to Nabil Othman, the UNHCR regional representative to the Gulf region, there were 500,000 Syrian refugees in Saudi Arabia at the time of his statement. The government itself of Saudi Arabia has stated that it has, over the past five years since the start of the conflict hosted 2.5 million refugees.

      Because the noted treaties establish treatment standards for refugees, some might raise concerns regarding the conditions that Saudi Arabia’s refugees may be living in. However, Al-Arabiya, a news outlet based in the UAE, has noted that “Saudi authorities granted Syrians the right of residency and work, and provided them with education and health services for free.” According to the Saudi government, over 100,000 children are currently receiving education in the country’s schools. Saudi Arabia is not alone in attempts to provide education for the refugees, with Lebanon now providing schooling for another 100,000 child refugees.

    • Religious hate is wrong.
      Lying is wrong.

      • But the worst wrong is your utter stupidity. Where is the religious hate? Where is the lying? Everyone who hates you does so because you make us hate you. You bring nothing of substance to the conversation yet you want to be considered relevant, you’re not. Keep responding and I’ll keep after you, moron.

  44. The Pope should butt out of politics and stick to tending his flock and rooting out all his pedophile priests!

  45. Michelle Minze-Bryant

    If you key into everything, that’s what the pope is trying to do. So many other people of different religions are trying to get everyone to believe that each religion serves the same God. But the one true God is the father of Jesus Christ, the God of the Jews, although they missed the Jesus boat Christians and Jews serve the same God. Muslims dont, or they’d believe you aren’t suppose to lie or kill, and all the other 10 commandments. Any religion that takes away or adds to the Bible, does not serve the one true God. Calling unbelievers infidels, and to destroy them if they don’t convert is the ultimate proof of not being the same God. God believes in forgiveness.

    • Islam is an Abrahamic religion — just as are Judaism and Christianity.

      Allah is simply the Arabic word for God — the same God you claim to worship.
      There is this teaching called ‘love thy enemy’ (Matthew 5:44)

      • Michelle Minze-Bryant

        It says love thy neighbor, but not invite satan in to dine with you. Flee from evil. Their God and our God is two different entities. Christian/Jewish God, follows the holy Bible, not the Quran. I’m sorry, you can’t pick and choose what parts of which religion you want to follow, that’s not how it works. You can’t follow one Bible verse and not read the rest of it. If you tell part of the truth, it is still a lie. And your not to lie, or kill. Not to even kill yourself.

        And why is there so many terrorists that kill, if that’s not anywhere in the Quran? You can’t be riding the fence, it doesn’t work like that. You choose Jesus Christ, the son of God, believe from the past, or wait until he comes back. But you can’t be fooled by the false god.

        I know your job is to try to make weak Christians change to Muslim, by lying about them being the same god. But when a Christian is trying to help with caring and giving to refugees, there’s nowhere that it’s written we are to change for them. We are to change them, but not let their evil into our houses, to change us.

        • Your published bigotry is an embarassment to America.
          Your self-imposed ignorance is an embarassment to America,
          .
          Muslims also honor the Bible.
          The Bible is also full of killing.

          Freedom of religion is America;s law.
          We do not judge other religions, or the people who follow them.

          • Michelle Minze-Bryant

            Your messed up in the head, you need to get right with one or the other because the God of the Bible will not accept you if you don’t believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only son of God. He died on the cross to save us from our sins and at no time did he tell his people to kill. People died but only because of Satan and God, we are not to kill each other.

            Anyhow, you don’t listen, you have your worldly view. You can’t have two Gods. There’s only one God of love and Peace, and the other isn’t. I suggest you read The Bible in its entirety. Or watch a Biblical show that walks you through the Bible, because everything you say is full of lies and half truths.

            I pray you find the truth and turn away from your doublemindedness. You can not serve two Gods. The God of the Bible is the one and only God, the father of Jesus Christ?

  46. Maybe the Pope should go to the Muslim Countries of the Middle East and talk to them about taking in the Muslim Refugees from Syria and Iraq … let them take care of their own Muslim Refugees.

  47. tRUMP has no morals; therefore he has no control over morals, secular/political, or religious! A firecracker dud!

  48. Trump has no morals.

    Four wives discarded like so much trash says everything that needs to be said about Trump.

  49. This nation is the way it is because of the people, mexico and 3’rd world cesspools are also the way they are because of the people. These people are already destroying this nation, just as they destroyed their own nations, we must boot them out. We cannot help them but they are harming us.

  50. Robbert Hoekstra Azusa

    When religion gets into politics and is used to amass power and wealth, take control of the masses and kills innocent people in the name of a god it becomes a tool of the devil, be it Roman Catholicism or Islam. History has shown it since Christ was born. The bishops of Rome and the Mullahs of Islam are two peas of the same pod. Watch Roman “Christianity” and Islam join forces. Keep your balls ready and your powder dry.

  51. Great article and good for Trump. If Catholics fall for the words of Pope Francis, they will imperil themselves and our Country. All due respect to the Pope, but he had no part in building this Republic, and having lived his own life on the edge of poverty is fine for a priest or a pope, who is supported by the working classes, but has no appreciation of the responsibilities of monetarily supporting one’s self or one’s family and is responsible for the health, safety and every aspect of life itself. He rides around in an armored vehicle, with guards surrounding him, and doesn’t have to be concerned with the jihadists, drug dealers and users, or even a government infiltrated by the enemy. If Americans were reared to kill, rape and maim other ethnic groups, he should speak out against that. But America cannot be expected to sacrifice its very existence for the sake of those who refuse to make the effort to better their homelands, but instead choose to take over an already developed and lawful country that they can demolish through their habitual destructive ways and lack of integrity. God would then have reason to disapprove of us for enabling them to continue wasting their own lives, and destroying the lives of others. Other nations’ peoples must “learn to fish” for themselves.
    Even Popes make mistakes, and the present Pontiff appears to be accepting counsel from socialists who believe in taking from others instead of producing themselves, and ‘environmentalists who also believe in taking from others —supposedly to improve upon God’s own creation, as if they could do a better job; as long as they can do it with other people’s money.
    God made man (people) in his own image, but he did not make them alike. He made the people in various parts of the world different, diverse. And that is how he meant them to be. Now man, lacking the wisdom of God, is trying to force all of mankind to “blend”. After blending, all the ingredients become alike. And after blending, you cannot make the original ingredients whole and separate again. You cannot get a banana, or an apple, or a luscious peach. You get a little of the banana, a slight hint of apple, a minute taste of the peach. But not one whole fruit that you can admire for its individual shape, feel, scent or taste.

  52. I also was not very pleased with the choice for Pope this time around. He most certainly is a very political Pope, and that was something even the priests were warned not to preach about. I watched this Mexico visit, and he did not get out and stroll around those streets filled with drugs, rapists, prostitutes, and killers, the Popemobile, zipped past at a pretty good clip, so that all the Secret Service ( or whichever branch protect him ) had to run, to keep up with the speed. He may mean well, and should do what he can to help all these human beings, but he should not start telling countries what they should do or not do. He is head of the catholic church, tell them, if he feels he must preach. Charity begins at home. We have more than enough poor people, babies born out of wedlock, druggies, rapists and murderers too, and a lot of it is because the restrictions have gotten easier, punishment is almost nil, and there are more charity collections to go to these people than to local parishioners who could use some help. It seems we have lost a few rights, but I do believe we can still have our own opinions.

  54. as usual Trump is right again. he hits a grand slam almost every time at bat. Trump in 2016.

  55. As a non-Catholic I agree with “BUD” pope should stay out of commenting about TRUMP….TRUMP 2016 & 2020 OORAH!!!

  56. What part of “illegal” does that boy fail to understand? Illegals have NO rights!! Their live are NOT our fault!

  57. I am thinking the Pope should lean on Mexico to provide an environment whereby they can become more productive and hense their people can be served better down there. Also he could concentrate on the drug trafficing and the attendent horrible deaths associated with that particular problem. We can always be reminded of certain of Jesus’ teaching so we become better people, and be more compassionate. But people should be able to work to make their nutl

  58. The Pope is head of the oldest & Largest POLITICAL machine in the history of the world! They have the largest private wealth vault ANYWHERE!

    The Official Title of the Pope is: The Vicar of Christ on Earth. Christ is the Holy Spirit and vicar means to Replace or Substitute. So: the Pope claims to have replaced the Holy Spirit on the earth when the Savior promised to send a Comforter who will Never leave us nor forsake us.

    Everything about the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) is designed to deny access to Heaven when you are judged. By instituting LIES, they have prevented anyone who loves and makes lies from entering Heaven.

    Christmas, Easter, and Sunday Worship are 3 lies to send you to HELL! But the biggest is the Name of the Father and that of the Son. The Father’s Name is JHVH (pronounced: Y Vah) and the Son’s: Jehoshua (pronounced: Y hosh’ oo ah).

    “Whatsoever ye ask the Father IN MY NAME, that shall I do.” His Name cannot be “jesus’ because that word/sound cannot be spoken in Hebrew!

  59. Trump wants to be king he might be worse than Obama if that is possible

  60. Hey Frankie! How about YOU take in all of those poor refugees and immigrants you hypocritical J.O.!!

  61. The pope wants to stand with ‘migrants’ at the border in protest of America’s immigration laws??? First off, are there still ‘migrants’ left in Mexico? (Migrant meaning those that Mexico wants to get rid of). Secondly, the border has been wide open thanks to the obamination in Washington DC. How is that working for us?? Not too well. How much are all these illegal aliens costing us? How much does the crime rate rise with their presence? Ridiculousness! The pope is NUTS!

  62. Taking care of business!

    test

    • History is full of facts, you might want to read up on them.
      The Catholic Church was the first Christian church to exist.

      Emperor Constintine made it the religion of the world about 325AD.
      Back then, the Roman Empure was considered the “world”.

  63. The office of the Pope has become larger and larger, like our government. He’s not happy being the leader of the Catholics, now he wants the Orthodox church to join him. More people more power. He comes from a country like Argentina where it’s been lead by brutal dictators over many years. He wants to export these same ideals, not the brutal part, but the strong willed dictator that doesn’t want to be challenged. He’s working on One World Religion with him at the head. Others want a One World Order, politically speaking. One Religion and One World who can ask for anything more? In some religious circles he’s been promoted as the anti-Christ. You be the judge, read the book of Revelation. Some say that the anti-Christ is already here on Earth. Personally I don’t know, but things in Revelation have come true and more will come. Make peace with God now!

  64. God bless Donald Trump.

    We have OVER 30 MILLION invaders, Pope Frances, how many does Vatican City want us to deliver? None? Then mind your own business. Each of those illegal invaders costs the taxpayers of OUR country about $15,000. per illegal invader. Do the math. That does NOT include items like Un-Insured and under insured motorist coverage because THEY don’t carry insurance. Nor do they get bothered by the cops when pulled over. Nope, NOT them. They are a breed apart. When I call ANY government office OR utility why am I given the option of English or Spansh? Why not Swedish or French or German or Portugese or Italian or Swiss or Norwegian or Finnish let alone Thai or Laotian or Burmese or Cambodian? How about Indian or Japanese or Chinese?

    Every one of us is an immigrant, came to America and learned the English language. I guess Mexicans are too stupid (OR lazy) to leer noir language and want US to accommodate them. Go to Hell, stopping off in Mexico on your way south. We are Tired of you illegal invaders and we’re tired of you dragging our country down. GO HOME

    • Invaders or refugees.
      You want to stop the flow, shut down the American drug market.
      .
      Oh, Americans are the invaders who imposed English on the people who first settled in this country.

      Maybe you should study a bit of American history — the Spanish and French were here long before the British. The First People were here before anyone else.

      • EVERYONE WHO SNEAKS ACROSS THE BORDER IS AN INVADER YOU FOOL. WHAT OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD IS SLOPPIER WITH ITS BORDER CONTROL? NONE

        MANY PEOPLE CAME BEFORE THE SPANISH AND FRENCH. TRY THE VIKINGS AND THE ASIANS WHO CAME ACROSS THEN LAND BRIDGE.

  65. POPE SHOULD STICK TO HIS POPE STUFF AND KEEP OUT OF NATIONAL POLITICS AND TRYING TO TELL COUNTRIES HOW TO PROTECT THEM SELVES AND THEIR BORDERS

    • Like the Church turned their back and ignored Germany in 1930s and 1940s?
      Like how the Church assisted Nazis to escape to Argentina with Vatican passports?
      .
      There is a way taking place South of border.
      A war driven by America’s market for illegal drugs.
      .
      Close the border to refugees, while supporting the drug lords. Right.

      • VERY ASTUTE. AND LIKE OTHER ANTI “RELIGIOUS,” ANTI-GOD STUFF. EVER WONDER HOW THE VATICAN GOT SO WEALTHY? NOT BY PRAYING! BY AIDING AND ABETTING THE NAZIS WAR MACHINE.

  66. My opinion is that Trump is reaching out to Protestant voters, acknowledging their fears about the Pope.

    • The realty is that America cannot close its borders — it is a physical impossibility

      Canada – US border 1,538 miles
      Canada – Alaska border 3,987 miles
      Mexico – US border 1,933 miles
      US Coastline 95,471 miles
      Alaska Coastline 6,640 miles
      Total exposure 109, 569 miles

      • Yeah, I agree that every border cannot be completely protected all the time. The idea is to do everything possible to filter out the anarchists. Our immigration system has been sabotaged by Ted Kennedy, and many others since the 60’s. We must restore the guidelines that were in effect before 1965, when Kennedy imposed his will on the American People. A lot CAN be done, if The People really demand it.

  67. As a Roman Catholic I will tell you he is not a true Pope, but a fraud (wolf in sheeps clothing). He and the last four popes are anti-popes and not true priests, so they cannot be popes. WE Catholics do not adhere to his/their private declarations, but only in terms of dogmatic teachings do we. He is in all understanding a heretic and an anti-Christ. The Catholic Church like so many Governments today are anti-God and anti-human. So I recommend to all, that we pray that almighty God have mercy on US all before its to late and He sends down fire as in the days of LOTs Sodom, amen.

    • American Catholics have a long history of ignoring Rome — the extent to which makes one believe the American church is not really Catholic. It is about time the Church changes it position on birth control. The stance to date has served only to keep the poor in poverty.

  68. The church needs to stay out of politics an other country`s business we all condemn government being involved in religion it works both ways.I think the pope should take care of the many problems his church has an let the citizens an government take on problems of their on country’s.Being the wealth`s church in the world I wonder how much they contributed to these Muslim immigrants who has take over Europe

  69. “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State ” Thomas Jefferson

  70. John Adams signed the 1797 Treaty with Tripoli, which reassured that Muslim nation that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”

  71. James Madison, the father of both the Constitution and the First Amendment, consistently warned against any attempt to blend endorsement of Christianity into the law of the new nation. “Who does not see that the same authority which can establish Christianity, in exclusion of all other Religions,” he wrote in his Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments in 1785, “may establish with the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all other Sects?”
