The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

I've held off on this little rant for some time now. I really was hoping things would prove out better.

Here, in the person of the Pope, you have a single man appointed to watch and care for the welfare of the entire Roman Catholic Church. Instead of seeing to the affairs of the church, which affairs, I dare say, could stand some seeing to, he prefers to surf the world on celebrity junkets, lecturing us all on the need for socialist political reforms.

Apparently overseeing the spiritual welfare of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics has proven so simple to the man that's he's already run out of important things to do and grown bored with the task. I think that any man who has time to lecture Congress on morality must have far too much time on his hands.

I guess it's good that things are going so blazingly well in Catholicdom that he has time to be a political rock star.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

He's either a complete buffoon that is pushing Marxism and the global warming agenda or he's knowingly corrupt and is carrying out the globalists' agenda. I tend to gravitate to the latter.
If he wasn't corrupt then instead of lecturing a bunch of scum in Congress he should be cleaning up his own organization that's littered w/ paedophiles. It's sickening to see people so easily suckered and fawning over him.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

Boys, Francis is a good-hearted, intelligent and well-intentioned man delivering a message of love and mercy instead of war and terror.

What's wrong with that even if it ventures into politics a bit?

I watched some of the CNN News and Fox News coverage and when both sides of the political spectrum can see merits in what Francis says, isn't that an accomplishment on his part?

Perhaps, we should all look in the mirror and ask ourselves the following question:

"Are we so jaded and polarized in our views of the world that we can not relax and see nuances in the messages of Francis the intellectual Jesuit instead of sticking to a hardened know-it-all agenda of beliefs?"

And of course, there is the programmed response of counter-attacking anyone who offers a perspective of the human condition different than our own. Can we not see any value in any of the words of Francis?

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

If he wants to help he could give the Vatican vast riches to the poor and victims of their pedo priests.His message or any other politicians message means nothing to me.SHOW me by action not talk.Its about CONTROL and fame with politicians and preachers these days.The world will be a better place when the last king is hung by the last priests intestines.Im thinking of a pair I would like to see together.We could sing Ebony and Ivory while drinking Jameson and smokin big cigars to celebrate.

He has his Masters in Science, particularly in chemistry. So technically he can be called a scientist. He was voted in as pope among his peers and colleagues... I'm sure your highy qualified critique of his trip to America and other countries is well founded... lol :rolls eyes:

Your post are always entertaining, Marcus.

Every forum always has their share of conspiracy theorist... Thank god the majority doesn't think the same way. We would be seriously f***ed. Take a chill pill and relax, there's nothing you can do.

Well, that escalated quickly.

Thanks for the compliment.

Yes, there is something I can do, and I'm doing it. Nothing will ever change until the people understand that they're being farmed by the likes of him. "There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See:" Look into the VAST amounts of money/control that church has. Look into the Billions they paid to keep people quiet about their pedophiles. Look into the connections they have with the rest of the globalists. Just LOOK.
So now after all the pedophilia controversy, they wheel out this guy to put a better mask on the church...the the citizens eat it up. He's just like every other corrupt leader in the spotlight talking crap and kissing babies....yet his house is in disarray. Full of bankers, lawyers, deviants that molest children, deviant salesmen redeeming souls for money.
All this...now he comes to our house of deviants selling Marxism and the BS global warming agenda. F 'em. I'm no sucker.
“There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.” !! Don't try to fool me, mister.

No. He's the religious equivalent of a dad whose kids have no shoes and whose wife is working overtime to buy food and pay rent while her husband always has time and money to meet the boys for beer and eight ball.

The church at large is in such a lamentable state. It's never been more divided or more beset by false teachers. The Catholic Church in particular has become practically synonymous with sexual scandal. Shouldn't that keep a pope engaged for a month or two? Having spiritual and moral charge of 1.2 billion people ought to keep any man busy doing things that matter. Instead, this man tours the world meeting with politicians and courting celebrity.

What he's actually doing is denying the faith. I don't say that because I disagree with him on political or and social issues. I say that because he's not strengthening the church spiritually or morally while he prostitutes himself to political leaders and political causes.

Quote:
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. I Tim. 1:8
By the way, I have the same thing to say about all the conservative, evangelical religious whores who have exchanged the gospel for top rank in the culture wars (or real wars), or for health and wealth prosperity preaching.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

But to be honest, I do find Francis' political views to be particularly objectionable. Any church leader who is too stupid to see how democratic socialism has usurped the church and destroyed the family is too stupid for me to have any kind words for.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

Tony, the Pope is wrong about virtually everything he speaks to, from his heretical doctrine of salvation to his near complete ignorance of biblical economics. Not to mention global warming, gun control, marriage, and a host of other issues. I wonder if this guy even believes the message of the Bible; he seems so full of his own self inflated ego that he places his ideas above even those of The Good Book.

He seems to really believe in the ridiculous Catholic doctrine of Papal Infallibility, and therefore feels no need to bow before any authority besides his own.

His position does not give any special credibility to his ideas. His ideas only have credibility as they correspond to Scripture and to reality, and most of what he says does neither.

The only reason that as you say "both sides of the political spectrum can see merits in what Francis says" is because it is politically correct to fawn over the Pope because of the votes he can influence, not because there is really much merit there.

Blind faith in men of high position has gotten us into the mess we are in. We don't need that kind of faith, or him as an object of faith, in this nation or anywhere else for that matter.

Sadly, people want a visible object of faith to worship and follow. The pope fits the bill nicely, and millions blindly follow what he says, just because he says it. I do not choose to be among them.

I was raised as a practicing-up-to-my-ears Catholic until I was 17, so I know what Pope idolatry is all about, because I used to fervently believe it and practice it.

Then by the grace of God, a Protestant shared the biblical gospel with me, and I came to saving faith in Jesus Christ, and in Him alone. I am so glad to have been delivered from the darkness of Roman Catholicism.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

Yea, Roger that. It infuriates me that people are so easily fooled by words and false deeds. One only needs to do such minimal research in order to understand the true nature of things. Instead, lazily they regurgitate an MSM CIA controlled news correspondent's scripted opinion in order to try and fool others of their understanding/smartness/etc..

edit: This was in response to Mepps post above your's NS. Excellent post there though.

BTW, my education was Pentecostal. Wednesday, Saturday, and twice on Sunday. We had a "bring a dish" between services on Sunday. I recognized the enjoyment of comradeship even as a child. I liked the feeling of helping people, although I remain agnostic.
IMO, the church is for people that need help. It takes a special person to devote their time to try and help people that spend very little time trying to help themselves. That's why I'm happy that there's others of good nature out there helping. I'm taking care of 4 brothers that would've ended up in a foster home. My bucket is full.

Tom Dilorenzo is, by the way, a brilliant defender of the Catholic faith. Unlike the pope, however, he's not an ignoramus on things economic.
