Papal Protests and 2016 Elections

Pope Francis nas taken the liberty to weigh in on the election and call Trump a non-Christian in one swoop.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel,”– Pope Francis.

He seemed to do it as Obama is also attacking Trump as being “unelecatable”.

Trump replied from Carolina that:

“They [Mexican government] are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.”

I know, some people frown on public criticism or commentary on the Pope regarding politics. But that is not me. In fact, these comments just beg a response to them. And I’m just one to accommodate it. Now it appears fashionable for this “Vicar” to do public cut and run comments from his Papal paradise, yet people are to supposed to remain silent.

This is not a matter of political correctness either. However, it is considered politically incorrect to criticize the Pope or Francis. Sorry for the disclaimer. I don’t hear him warning ‘let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” No, he endorses the public stoning of non-compliant individuals, metaphorically.

Rather this Pope went on the campaign trail when he came here, aligning his position and public ad campaign with Tom Steyer and the far Left joining their big-government, Global Warming agenda.(Steyer sponsored his ad campaign message) Some may regard that as courageous or welcome his critique in our policy and political process. But I for one do not, especially as it is a one-sided, double standard approach.

Where are the Papal excommunications of Leftist politicians who support abortion, even up to and including the infanticide of partial birth abortion? Where is that public flogging or that multi-million dollar ad campaign? Don’t point me to general comments selectively littered in some of his speeches between his pros on Climate Change.

Show me where he singles out someone on the Left and calls them a non-Christian — or excommunicates someone. He might just start that one with the Oval Office Occupant and his anti-Life voting record. There are times when hypocrisy just stands up and screams.

I am grieved today because of what Francis said on Donald Trump. Not because of my predisposition toward either side of it. If it were someone other than this Pope, then he might possibly regret those statements. But that won’t happen. As with the uber-Left, unfortunately, shame is not a factor in their sentiments.

Remember, in August 2015, Pope Francis was said to have excommunicated Donald Trump, citing it “behavior recognized as un-Christian to the community of the faithful,” barring him from partaking in sacraments of the Church. ***(Update: Apparently it was a satirical site post here though in effect this is much the same thing)

So Pope Francis and the Vatican endorses the illegal invasion of our southern border.

Let the mass excommunications begin. Has a sort of an Inquisition tone to it.
But deporting illegal invaders is compassionateless.

Note: (my apologies for the mention of the satire excommunication) Later, the Presbyterian Church was calling on people to denounce Trump’s statements saying his church should look into his standing.

Pope, Mayors, climate change, and the Left

You know how the Left (progressives, anti-Christian bigots et al) complain endlessly about cozy alliances or collaboration between Christian leaders and government regarding “separation of Church and State,” or more specifically Christianity and politics.? Well, the hypocrisy meter explodes at what is planned on the 21st and 22nd of July.

The Vatican and Pope Francis will host a meeting with mayors from around the world, plus other dignitaries of the left and global warming communities, to “discuss global climate and modern slavery.” See complete write up here.

The Eponymous Flower has the full story: “Vatican and the UN Organize Event With Leftist Mayors on Climate Change — Rapprochement Continues”. (Excerpt):

“He [Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo]organized ahead of the encyclical, the concept of an international workshop of “climate change and sustainable development” in the Vatican. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will give the opening speech. The keynote speaker will be his right hand, the UNSDNS Director Jeffrey Sachs (UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network). Thus, not only will the representatives who believe in manmade global warming will gather in the Vatican, but also the neo-Malthusians. Not only that, but climate skeptics were systematically removed from the registration list. The Vatican has been (see the promoters of a guided, one-sided meeting in accordance with the UN World Warming thesis Climate skeptics Excluded From Vatican Meeting – Other Opinions Undesirable ).”

60 Mayors from Around the World Meeting in the Vatican – are “Exclusively” of the Left

“The UN is not the Devil, but the Opposite”, said Sanchez Sorondo to a journalist’s question, whether it was not strange that the Vatican was harboring a UN event. […More]

I shall now sit back and await the huge outcry from progressives and media over the cozy collaboration, with the inevitable nasty protests to follow from mayors and the left. This fallout will be big. Any minute….

Pope incites cultural revolution

Pope urges revolution to save Earth, fix ‘perverse’ economy

VATICAN CITY (AP) — In a sweeping environmental manifesto aimed at spurring concrete action, Pope Francis called Thursday for a bold cultural revolution to correct what he described as a “structurally perverse” economic system where the rich exploit the poor, turning Earth into an “immense pile of filth.”

Francis framed climate change as an urgent moral issue in his eagerly anticipated encyclical, blaming global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor most.

Citing Scripture, his predecessors and bishops from around the world, the pope urged people of every faith and even no faith to undergo an awakening to save God’s creation for future generations.

I’ve already sufficiently expounded on the subject, but the groans seem to be getting louder from the Vatican.

Pope validates Palestinian State

NY Times | May 13,2015

JERUSALEM — The Vatican announced Wednesday that it would soon sign a treaty that includes recognition of the “state of Palestine,” lending significant symbolic weight to an intensifying Palestinian push for international support for sovereignty that bypasses the paralyzed negotiations with Israel.
