If one depended on the European media and European schools for one’s knowledge of Islam, one would indeed come away with a misleading picture of Islam. But the same could be said of Catholics who rely on Church pronouncements about Islam. Ever since the Second Vatican Council, Church leaders have presented a smiley-faced version of Islam which emphasizes the commonalities with Catholicism and leaves out the alarming elements.
He dings the American bishops for a lack of credibility as his own takes another hit in the wake of a new Vatican scandal.
Pope Francis lectured the American bishops this week on their “crisis of credibility” even as his own reputation took another hit in the wake of revelations about one of his protégés. It turns out that another McCarrick-like predator has been nesting at the Vatican under the patronage of this famously permissive pope. “Pope Francis’ Argentinean Protégé Accused of Sex Abuse,” reported the Daily Beast.
The accused bishop is Gustavo Óscar Zanchetta, a crony of Pope Francis’s from his days as archbishop of Buenos Aires.
Pope Francis launched an appeal to European leaders Sunday, asking them to welcome a group of African migrants aboard two NGO vessels.
“For the last several days, 49 people rescued in the Mediterranean Sea have been aboard two NGO vessels in search of a safe harbor where to disembark,” the pope said after his weekly Angelus message Sunday.
The Pope’s message comes at a time where many citizens are protesting against mass immigration and globalism.
Earlier this month Pope Francis remarked that the 19 Roman Catholic clerics and nuns who were killed by Islamists in 1996 “are a testament to God’s plan of love and peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims,” the Catholic Register reported. Most of the 19 were French citizens.
The pope’s remarks come after centuries of war fought between the Roman Catholic Church and Islamic warriors who first invaded Algeria in the late 7th century. His comments were given at a beatification Mass held earlier this month in Oran, Algeria. Celebrating the Mass was Cardinal Angelo Becciu, prefect of the Congregation for Saints’ Causes.
“It is the “moral responsibility” of the outside world to accept even more migrants,” Pope Francis explained in a speech on Thursday.
This year it is 70 years since the globalist organisation that is the UN adopted the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
It was for that reason that Pope Francis urged the outside world to open its doors to even more migrants.
Pope Francis is “concerned” about what he described as the “serious issue” of homosexuality, saying in an interview published Saturday that being gay was a “fashion” to which the clergy is susceptible.
“The issue of homosexuality is a very serious issue that must be adequately discerned from the beginning with the candidates,” the pontiff said with regards to would-be priests.
“In our societies it even seems that homosexuality is fashionable and that mentality, in some way, also influences the life of the church,” he says in the book ‘The Strength of a Vocation’, released in Italy on Saturday.
Pope Francis said the following in a message ahead of the Roman Catholic Church’s World Day of Migrants and Refugees: “The principle of the centrality of the human person … obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security.”
Francis, who has made the cause of refugees and immigrants a major focus of the Catholic Church, said, “Solidarity must be concretely expressed at every stage of the migratory experience – from departure through journey to arrival and return.”
“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
“’Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”
Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that “the wealthy few” enjoy what, “in justice, belongs to all” and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants.
Al-Abd Al-Faqir, a media group supported by the Islamic State, published two propaganda posters last month that depict an attack on Pope Francis.
One poster stated “Don’t think you are away from our attacks” and showed a jihadist with an Islamic State wristband and a handgun, taking aim at the pope as he walked by a barbed wire fence on a visit to Auschwitz. The other recent poster, again set at Auschwitz, was addressed to “slaves of the Cross” and depicted an assailant sneaking up on the pope from behind.
“A gossiper is a terrorist, because with his tongue he throws a bomb and then walks away, but that tossed bomb destroys the good name of others. Do not forget: to gossip is to kill,” he said.
In his address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the pope urged his listeners to do all they can to assist humanity in facing the most pressing threats facing the planet, noting that in the first place these are “the immense and ongoing crisis of
climate change and the nuclear menace liberal Democrats and Islamic jihad.”
An NYC auxiliary bishop is credibly accused of abuse while the Vatican mulls Tobin and Gregory for DC.
Atlanta Archbishop Wilton Gregory was a protégé of the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who played a leading role in the Gaying of the Catholic Church in America. In a nod to that legacy, Bernardin requested the Windy City Gay Men’s Chorus perform at his funeral. As an auxiliary bishop under Bernardin in Chicago, Gregory witnessed the spread of homosexuality within the priesthood and hierarchy up close. Bernardin’s seminary was known as the “pink palace.”
As archbishop of Atlanta, Gregory has maintained Bernardin’s program of gay promotion and propaganda in the Church. Gregory, for example, has defended the writings and speeches of Fr. James Martin, a Jesuit who openly calls for the Church to adjust herself to the demands of the “LGBT community.”
The faux Pope Francis has spoken out again in the name of Globalist propaganda, telling the public that ‘Populism leads to Hitler,’ ignoring the Catholicism-plague of pedophilia.
Pope Francis has continued to push the same globalist-backed agenda for the tenure of his Papacy, with rhetoric more-often than not similar to that of the Communist Manifesto.
