Pope Francis’ allies accuses US Catholics of forming an ‘alliance of hate’ to back Trump

Two people close to Pope Francis have accused ultra-conservative American Catholics of making an alliance of “hate” with evangelical Christians to back Donald Trump.

Catholic priest Antonio Spadaro and Protestant theologian Marcelo Figueroa published a joint article in La Civilta Cattolica, a journal published by Jesuit priests in Rome and overseen by the Vatican, in which they denounced US Catholics for supporting the extremist positions of the American right, saying the world view of hard-line Catholics is “not too far apart” from that Islamist jihadists.

They singled out Steve Bannon, Mr Trump’s controversial chief strategist who was raised Catholic, as a “supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics” which had hampered efforts to combat climate change and exploited fears about migrants and Muslims with demands for “walls and purifying deportations”.

    We need to feel that it was ALL for Something.


  • Shebel

    I REALLY do Hate people that bring it upon themselves to represent their Country–
    And then run around the World Apologizing.
    You were not elected to Apologize.
    You didn’t become the Pope to Apologize.

    You are Traitors.

    Hate, racism, bla bla bla… Poor pope francis the statist/globalist stooge does not realize his church is dying because of credibility challanged individuals at the top such as himself. No one cares anymore on the Trump side if we get called racists, xenophobes, haters, whatever as we all know that the true hate emerges from the left and its insane members.
