The Pope’s Marxist Head of the Jesuits

Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, a Venezuelan Communist and Modernist, is carrying out Francis’s agenda.

Understanding the adage that personnel is policy, Pope Francis has been planting Marxists throughout the Church, including at the top of the troubled religious order to which he belongs. In 2016, the Jesuits, with the blessing of Pope Francis, installed as its general superior a Venezuelan, Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, whose communist convictions have long been known.

Sosa has written about the “Marxist mediation of the Christian Faith,” arguing that the Church should “understand the existence of Christians who simultaneously call themselves Marxists and commit themselves to the transformation of the capitalist society into a socialist society.” In 1989, he signed a letter praising Fidel Castro.

The Young Pope garners young conservative following

Not this guy.

The Young Pope doesn’t make things easy for its audience, devout, bitter or angry. Obvious villains like Voiello are endowed with priestly compassion; good characters like Lenny’s boyhood friend Cardinal Dussolier graphically violate their vows of priestly celibacy. Most pointedly, Law’s Pius frequently admits that his faith is in crisis; despite working miracles and delivering a season finale sermon that would renew any real world papacy, he confesses that he doesn’t believe in God.

This is all set in a conspicuous Italian surrealism that takes giddy advantage of the Vatican City setting. Sorrentino revels in striking visual tableaux and loving camera pans over both the beautiful and the grotesque. You can never predict where the show will go next. At one crucial point Lenny’s apartments are filled with the ghosts of a host of long-dead popes. There is a Papal Kangaroo.

The Papal Wrecking Ball

Under Pope Francis, the new orthodoxy is heterodoxy and woe to those who don’t conform to it. Headlines appeared this week announcing that the pope “had taken over the Knights of Malta after condom dispute.” In the past, such a headline would have suggested a papal crackdown on condom distribution. In this case, it refers to Pope Francis punishing an organization that fired an official implicated in the distribution of condoms. Pope Francis was dismayed by the removal of a Knights of Malta official who had overseen the order’s humanitarian agency, which had been handing out contraceptives to prostitutes and aid workers in Asia.

Pope Francis rejects rightwingers with US cardinals’ appointment

Pope Francis has put his progressive stamp on the American Catholic church with the selection of three new like-minded cardinals – including one who has sparred with the Republican vice-presidential nominee, Mike Pence – in a clear rejection of bishops who have advocated for the church’s exclusion of divorced and LGBT Catholics.

The American choices were among 17 new cardinals named by Francis. He has chosen more from the developing world and only one from Italy, reflecting his desire to decentralise power away from the Vatican in Rome.

Pope Francis’ Song and Dance with Islam

“…The reality is that Francis wants to say just enough to satisfy those calling on him to acknowledge reality—that Muslims everywhere are persecuting Christians—without jeopardizing his true project: “dialogue.” This is why he only speaks about Christian persecution during unremarkable church gatherings with little media attention; but when he has the world by its ears—through encyclicals or when speaking for an hour in front of the UN—there is no talk of Christian martyrs.”

Syria war: Those bombing Aleppo ‘must answer to God’ – Pope

Addressing crowds in Rome, Pope Francis urged all sides to “commit themselves with all their strength to protect civilians”. He said: “This is an imperative and urgent obligation. I appeal to the consciences of those responsible for the bombings, who will one day will have to account to God.”

What religion is this Pope? Anybody know?

Muslim cleric from terror sponsor Iran praises Pope for saying Islam is peaceful

Grand-Ayatollah-Makarem-Shirazi-of-Qom“Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi of Qom wrote in a letter to the Pope: ‘I am really delighted to have heard your comments during your last trip to Poland in which you stated “Islam is not equal to terrorism” and further dismissed the association of violence and harshness with any and all divinely-sent religions.’”

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi of Qom must know better. He must know that the Qur’an and Sunnah teach warfare against unbelievers, as I demonstrate here and in many other places. He is thanking the Pope for furthering what he must know are false statements that keep people ignorant and complacent about the jihad threat. He is, in effect, thanking the Pope for being a tool of the global jihad.

The Church and Islam: The Next Cover-up Scandal #NotMyPope

“#NotMyPope.” In the wake of Pope Francis’ equivocal response to the murder of a French priest by two Islamic jihadists, that’s the top trending hashtag in France and in Belgium.

Which raises a question: Is the Pope doing more harm than good by continuing to deny—in the face of a mountain of evidence—that Islam has anything to do with violence?

Pope Francis and the Decline of the West

The pope of the Roman Catholic Church should be its greatest advocate. But because of leftism, he isn’t.

Pope Francis made comments last week that reveal the most important single thing you need to know about the modern world: The most dynamic religion of the last hundred years has been leftism. Not Christianity, and not Islam, but leftism.

Leftism has taken over the world’s leading educational institutions, the world’s news media and the world’s popular entertainment, and it has influenced Christianity (and Judaism) far more than Christianity (or Judaism) has influenced anything.

‘It’s not right to identify Islam with terrorism’ Says Pope Francis As ISIS Releases Dabiq Issue 15 Entitled “Break The Cross”

Pope Francis has said he will not label Islam as ‘terrorism’ because it would be unfair and warned Europe was pushing its young into the hands of extremists.

The pontiff was asked by reporters why he never mentions Islam when condemning terrorism or violence.

‘It’s not true and it’s not correct (to say) Islam is terrorism,’ he said, defending his decision not to name the religion when condemning the brutal murder of a Catholic priest in France in the latest of a string of recent attacks in Europe claimed by the Islamic State group.

And here’s Dabiq Issue 15 Aptly entitled “Break The Cross” read it at the link below

Dabiq Issue 15 July 2016

Must read… What Is Wrong With Pope Francis?

Pope Francis said the inspiration for terrorism wasn’t Islam but a world economy that worshiped the “god of money” and drove the disenfranchised to violence.

“Terrorism grows when there is no other option, and as long as the world economy has at its center the god of money and not the person, “ the pope told reporters late Sunday as he returned to the Vatican from a five-day visit in Poland. “This is fundamental terrorism, against all humanity.”

The Pope and the Imam

Pope Francis met with a high level imam in order to spread peace and co-existence. The Pope is willing to ignore 1400 years of jihad against Christians to talk about peace. But peace in Islam only comes after submission. Co-existence in Islam comes when the Kafir becomes a dhimmi and accepts Sharia law.
