The Roots of the Pope’s Anti-Americanism

It can be traced to his leftist background in Argentina.

The other day I ran into a high-ranking churchman in New York City and we chatted about the state of the Church. Though appointed by Pope Francis, he shared some of my distaste for this pontificate. He found the pope’s “vindictive” side disappointing and dislikes the pope’s lack of spiritual seriousness. The latter is evident in his absurdly casual “living arrangement” at the Vatican hotel, the prelate said with a grimace. “A pope needs contemplative silence,” he said. He described a pope who spends his days not deep in prayer but hanging out at the Vatican cafeteria, engaging in silly political chitchat with anyone who happens upon him.

          Should “heart” be “fart”. Well, at least they rhyme…

    The Pope of Liberation Theology is it in a nutshell.

    It’s hard to imagine Chatty Francis in “contemplative silence.”

    A clown stuck in the front window to distract from the real dirty work getting done behind the curtain.
    There seems to be a lot of that sort of thing going on everywhere.

    Again, I’ll ask, and I think it’s a legitimate question. Is the Pope Catholic?

    • BillyHW

      Yes, but in the same way all the demons are Catholic.

        What sort of demon are you Billy

        • BillyHW

          A Dodge Demon.

    • Shebel

      I don’t think he is Catholic.
      He acts like a Muslim.

      • A Hamilton Guy

        Check out the book” Islam at the Gates”. It deals with the Ottomans and their Invasions 600 yrs. ago. I don’t think this Pope has read the book, or just ignores the facts.

    Sorry off topic but I can’t help myself. This Canadian doesn’t have air conditioning in his car but he’s improvising.
