The President, the Pope and Politics

…and the Castro brothers.

“You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. [5] Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?” —
James 4:4-5

Does the Pope understand, as he should, that the global warming-climate change agenda is really a political one? A seductive one at that. It has been exposed.

It’s just like a bait and switch. You may think you are taking a scientific approach, but science has been trumped by political, reason has morphed into political agenda. You can think you take a modern Christian perspective only to have the creation replace the Creator.

Just as the bait and switch above:

“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money. “–Matt 6:24 (Sermon on the Mount)

The old God vs. Mammon applies to the creation – worshiping crowd. Even though the Pope may think he is taking the righteous high ground, the whole agenda has been corrupted, and evolved into a socialism tenant. Who, or whom, is he really serving?

“We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.” –Rom 8:22

As much as Pope Francis is immersed in politics of the Climatology agenda, he goes to Cuba and meets with Castro but he is barred from meeting with dissidents. Of course.

Even the Leftist media can’t help but question the Cuba visit asking:
Is Pope Francis too soft on communism?

(CNN)But for the most part, the Pope has steered clear of overt political statements — much more so than his predecessors, says veteran Vatican-watcher John Thavis. And some conservatives are accusing Francis of going soft on communism.

Let’s see if he steers clear of political when he comes to the US? Going to the UN could put the lie to that notion. I doubt he will restrain political inferences.

BBC is asking questions too.

Is the Pope a Communist? (Listen to their inquisition – in new tab)

Social sin, unemployment, false god, money, liberation theology — it’s all packed in there. The conclusion to the piece is no he is not a communist, but what he is no one is quite sure.

But if he shares the propensities of Raul Castro, along with other communists and socialists, like Obama and radical leftists, then how far removed is he from communism? Or if he is a willing tool of the same, what difference does it really make? Used he will be.

Seems the Pope has plenty of Marxist, socialist friends. Whether he sought them out in the same way Obama did is a question. One wonders if that same fatal attraction Obama has for Marxist radicals he proudly admits to, could be the same element that welcomed Francis to the Papacy? The flirtation can be fatal.

For Obama’s part, he can intentionally play up the political agenda, especially with Francis, in order to later have the political references roundly criticized. Nothing could make Barry Soetoro-Barack Obama any happier than stirring critique of the RCC, or the Pope. (for his Islam friends) But then Francis comes from the same social community organizing background. It sets a rivalry on a large scale. One wonders if the subject of the Crusades comes up too?

“We have a tradition in this country of avoiding discussion of religion and politics at the dinner table, and Pope” Francis soon see why.

    Dang, you’re so prolificaliphate with one article after the other I haven’t had time to read copious content and to comment.
    Why? Four hours this morning getting my brake lights fixed in a capitalistic system, pay as you go.
    Also no wifi at shop, so I bought a book to read during that time at Walgreens, a capitalistic system.
    Recommend Harlan Coben. Regular detective stuff is what I bought. Had to quit the terrorist stuff, but Daniel Silva a favorite there.
    I stayed the four hours cause no one could pick me up.
    All’s well and fixed. I ready to go…well stop that is. 🙂

      LOL good tie in. Actually thought I was pretty slow compared to some like our buddy over there. He’s always fresh.

      At least you got it done, finally, under our system. In a commie one they’d have taken your car and called the problem fixed. (couldn’t resist) (and may have detained you too… to the correct reading section) 🙂

        Nah, even he slowing a bit.
        I agree with my auto shop credit policy…100% down, no monthly payments. 🙂
        Yeah, I guess my book list will have to be approved like my health care proposed plan, approved by Ezekiel Emanuel of some sort.

    Pretty sure we’ve heard these same words from other Marxist “exclusion & inequality” and Francis loves adding them to his dialogue. But Francis is the first I’ve heard tie and equate those words to the 6th commandment. Unreal.

    Didn’t care for communism when I was taught about Marx and Lenin during grade school and I don’t like it any better coming out the Pope’s mouth. Same message, different delivery person, still stinks.

    Is Francis a commie? Time will tell for sure, but for now he does make an old adage come to mind: “Show me who you hang out with and I’ll tell you what kind of person you are.”

      Dave uh huh, but I ‘m not too sure what you’re refering to. ( a momentary blank) Two different systems, one sees 6th as kill so I didn’t think you meant that. Though that other equivocation would not surprise me. We have sunk to new levels.

      Dave, I think they mostly stopped teaching much about it now, so maybe you were one of the privileged educated. (little kidding) No the words don’t sound any better, but it is just like a Marxist to try to make things a little more palatable. The body count never sells the system.

      Along with that show of friends, add show me who the advisers are too. In the climate change case it is looking bad. We know how commies and socialists shovel anything to make their case.

        I listened to the words from Francis (from the link you provided “Is the Pope a Communist?”) where he states he sees no difference between “Thou shalt not kill” and the starving to death of an old person due to being poor (inequality). Does that better explain my comment or am I missing something?

        If ya’ call going through public schools with race riots on a daily basis privileged, then yes I was. 🙂

        I can’t even keep up with what they’re now teaching young folks, because it constantly changes and gets worse. I’m sure however they don’t praise our great nation and demonize commies like they use to in my day of be ed-u-e-kated. The exact opposite in fact.

          Oh, okay, I got it. There was a lot packed in there too. BTW, that was their conclusion, I think we’re seeing. Good catch, I should be surprised. Yes he made a bunch of parallels. You’re right on as usual, just my usual lapse. One heck of an equivocation. Shows how his mind works. Sorry.

          You’re good with spotting facts and truth, sort of an acquired trait. I’m thankful for your truth bursts.

          No, Dave, at least you learned something about the miserable commies. I got most of it word of mouth and light reading. (why did I say light, it ain’t ever light with them)

          They’ve done worse in confusing everything. But they’ll know the political hot issues Dem want focus on. Heaven forbid what they are saying about gay marriage, gay pride, rainbows. Basically anything except the real important stuff.

            No apology needed Bull. Maybe I catch facts, because I’m a hermit that has a lot of time to analyze stuff. Don’t get out much anymore, so plenty of time on my hands. 🙂

            Francis says a lot that bothers me, but one speaker on the audio likes to call folks like me a neo-conservative. I know he’s trying to insult us folks that are neocons, but it’s not an insult to us.

            Just to point out one more and I believe this was another guest speaker discussing a belief of Francis: “Christian charity requires you to become friends with the poor and becoming poor yourself living an austere and modest life. Does not buy into charity from above from those more fortunate.” Sounds like redistribution of wealth to me and a blast against capitalism and free markets.

            (Metaphor alert) Where does one get water to drink once the river runs dry? Who feeds the poor once everyone is poor? Another lefty view that’s full of crap and unrealistic, but one H.G. Wells would have loved.

              Yes, Dave notice all the names and aliases they all have for us, but we aren’t supposed to pigeon hole him. I suggest he pigeon-holed himself.

              I agree, he couches the message a little subtler than Barry-O (at some point I think you made enough money) but it is the same vein. And some of the motivation is the same. And a real big appeal in there for big government. But lets not talk about all those failures of big government… and the problem with Its solutions. (don’t make an issue out of that.)

    So Pope comes and the ads roll out. All about global warming-climate change.

    And they are making the case Pope Francis is not political or getting immersed in them.

      If the Pope is not playing or being political here, then its sort of funny that his environmental ad campaign is linked up with Next Gen Climate org, a 501 (c)(4) org (pac) political action committee founded by Tom Steyer. Now that is a heck of a way of trying not to be political. And that is about as left as you get, unless you want to go straight for the gold George Soros model. You might as well say Francis is being sponsored by Next Gen Climate — or vice versa.

      The mask is sort of off, just as it is on global warming. Hard to forget Tom Steyer, since his fingerprints are all over politics, Democrats, the capitol and WH. But Francis told reporters on the plane he wasn’t a liberal. (but I wonder if he played one on TV)

      Francis isn’t a liberal, Barry loves our constitution, Hillary breaks no laws and we never really landed on the moon (that was a movie shot in a warehouse).

      They just keep providing more proof they went right down that damn hole with Alice and hung out with the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar the whole time.

        Dave, you sure punctuated that one. Barry is Mr Constitution. Grace Slick couldn’t have put it any better. If Obama had been in Jonestown it would be Obamatown. Don’t give Hellary the warehouse idea. She just found out we can raise dead emails.

        Yea I guess Francis felt compelled to say that. But how can he deny not being a leftist.Don’t worry they’ll have the re-education committee working on us and redefinition class will start soon.
