I refer to him as Delusional Pope Francis, because I don't want to think of him as evil. I don't want to think of him as stupid either, but what are we to make of him? How are we to interpret his persistent opposition to the very idea of America? Or his persistent referring to all of America's illegal foreign intruders as mere innocent sounding "migrants", or worse, "immigrants", as if they had properly applied and filled out the paperwork for immigration at some embassy?
They most certainly are not immigrants. Nor are they merely "migrants". They are foreign intruders, and criminal aliens. They violated the laws of at least two nations just to commit the crime of illegally entering the United States. They continue to violate US law every day that they remain here.
Pope Francis, like Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, does not believe America has any right to national security or border integrity, nor that the American people have any right to internal security and personal safety within the borders of their own country. The question before us regards whether this belief is based on some international vision of a Utopian global human culture, or is merely aimed at the end of America, alone. Perhaps the Pope believes the whole world might somehow be better off if the United States of America simply stopped existing.
Once again, public remarks by Pope Francis reveal either evil intent toward America, or monumental geopolitical ignorance; ignorance even of the definition of sovereignty, or of nationhood. Perhaps he bears malice toward all nations, as all Marxists do. He repeatedly shows animosity to America in particular, as all Marxists do. It is American borders that he singles out and seems to hate the most.
I couldn't believe my ears listening to Talk Radio yesterday, so I waited until I could read the whole of them for full context. The Papal remarks concerning contraception and homosexual marriage were a lot more nuanced and innocent than Talk Radio had indicated, and in fact, not worth further comment here. In other words, nothing really new there, despite a lot of popular media interpretation.
But his comments regarding Trump and our borders build on a history of similar seemingly malicious intent toward American sovereignty, or, ignorance, or, stupidity. Who am I to judge?
Here is the question and answer that set the world on fire yesterday:
Taken on top of his Mass at Juarez, right on our border, with more references to the criminal foreign intruders into the USA as either innocent "migrants" or legal "immigrants" added to his growing stack of similar comments, indicates Papal encouragement and endorsement of illegal entry into the USA.
This will almost certainly give a major political boost to Trump, and it will almost certainly raise anti-Catholic animosity in America to a new high. The Pope clearly feels that everyone on earth has some sort of right to illegally enter America.
He has said nothing similar about the "Christianity" of Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. Nor has he said anything similar about the Christianity of the murderous Castro Brothers on their Communist prison island of Cuba, where the people are not allowed to leave. Quite the opposite of America. Pope Francis has no problem with that, or at least he has never spoken of it. He only has negative things to say about the USA, not of any Communist land.
So, the question remains unanswered. Is Pope Francis an evil Marxist with malice in his heart toward human liberty, is he blissfully ignorant in all geopolitical matters, or is he simply a blithering idiot?
Again, who am I to judge?

When we listen to the serpent and act on it we become like Eve and destroy souls. How many times have we been deceived by email hoaxes only to regret forwarding such and promise to NEVER send anything out again without checking its veracity... oh no, not again. It is worse when someone has a Catholic audience that is duped against the Vicar of Christ. Well, I can confess it and be forgiven; but not without making reparation to the reputation of that injured person and his Office.

Bigoted Minister Scolds Pope on Hannity
February 19, 2016
Bill Donohue comments on last night's edition of "Hannity":
The subject of a discussion on "Hannity" last night was the Trump-Pope feud, a controversy set in motion by a dishonest reporter from Reuters: in a classic red-herring scam, he misrepresented Trump's position on immigration, and then asked the pope to comment on it.
The way Sean reacted to the exchange was bizarre. Worse still was his guest, Rev. Robert Jeffress. Indeed, the only person who made any sense was Father Robert Sirico.
Sean's dislike of Pope Francis is obvious, but the fact that he could not contain his anger without veering off about priestly sexual abuse does not speak well for him. That he went off the rails is indisputable.
Sean's biggest mistake was inviting an anti-Catholic bigot, Rev. Jeffress, to comment on the pope.
In 2010, Jeffress said the Roman Catholic Church was the outgrowth of a "corruption" called the "Babylonian mystery." Then he got really dirty: "Much of what you see in the Catholic Church today doesn't come from God's word. It comes from that cult-like pagan religion. Isn't this the genius of Satan?"
Given this man's pedigree, it was hardly surprising to hear him say last night that "the pope needs to ask for Donald Trump's forgiveness for saying such an outlandish thing." Wrong, Reverend: It is you who needs to ask for forgiveness for calling the Catholic Church the voice of Satan.
In 2011, I criticized presidential hopeful Gov. Rick Perry for inviting Jeffress to introduce him at a D.C. conference. Perry handled it well: after I blasted Jeffress on "Hardball," Perry called me at home expressing his regrets for inviting the Dallas minister. That settled the issue.
Hannity should similarly settle this issue by not inviting this bigot to opine about the pope ever again, even if he is a Fox News Contributor.

Perhaps it is you and millions of others who are delusional for listening to the seed of the serpent, the media of the world. It is and has been this voice of the world that has been electing the New world Order socialist government in America. Please read carefully the truth about what is going on:

Pope, Trump, and Immigration
February 18, 2016
Bill Donohue comments on Pope Francis and Donald Trump:
Earlier today, I commented on how the media like to ask Donald Trump to opine about the pope's position on immigration, but no one wants to ask Hillary Clinton about the pope's position on abortion. Now the pope is being asked about Trump's position on immigration. The pope is making headlines everywhere for saying, "Trump is not a Christian." But there is much more to this story than what is being reported.
First, the question to the pope inaccurately reflected Trump's views. Quite frankly, the pope was set up. The reporter told the pope that Trump "wants to deport 11 million illegal immigrants, thus separating families." That is patently false. On August 16, 2015, Chuck Todd, on "Meet the Press," asked Trump, "You're going to split up families. You're going to deport children?" To which Trump said, "Chuck—no, no. No, we're going to keep the families together. We have to keep the families together." When asked where they would go, Trump said, "We will work with them." So the pope was misled.
Second, after misrepresenting what Trump said, the reporter asked the pope "if an American Catholic can vote for someone like this." This is rather amazing: Do some in the media now want the pope to tell Catholics who to vote for!
Third, the pope, unlike the media, was totally fair to Trump. He said, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian." (My italic.) He added that "I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that...and in this I give the benefit of the doubt." (My italics.)
In fact, Trump's official position on immigration lists three principles: "A nation without borders is not a nation"; "A nation without laws is not a nation"; "A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation." The last two principles are never mentioned by the media, thus do they distort Trump's thinking. The bias, which is as strong on the right as it is on the left, is astounding.

The Mainstream Catholic Media, which includes spokesmen/commentators such as Bill Donohue, is perhaps as equally corrupted as is the secular Mainstream Media. The secular media is owned by the "Establishment" ruling class in Washington; the Catholic Media is owned and controlled by Dioceses and Archdioceses, and the USCCB. Call it "Establishment" Catholicism. Hence, the Catholic Media silence (sensoring?) regarding huge scandals such as the current one in Cardinal Dolan's New York. (See ChurchMilitant.com)
Pope Francis was not so "set up" by the question; read the whole question, word for word. Trump is identified, and what he has been proposing is accurately described. He really did call for a wall, with great emphasis and even gross exaggeration, and indicated he would make Mexico pay for it. He did indeed say he would deport all the illegals. And he did indeed make the connection to American National Security being at risk.
These statements of Pope Francis are not one isolated incident; he has encouraged Mexicans to illegally cross our borders, and he has encouraged us to not only stand by and allow it, but to help the process, feed, clothe and shelter the illegals, as fast as they come in, with no end, forever.
Millions and millions and millions of them. They are still coming in; they are not slowing down; they are encouraged by the Marxocrat Party and the Obamunist regime through foreign language broadcast advertising in foreign countries on how to illegally cross our borders, where the illegal and unconstitutional "sanctuary" cities are and how to apply for food stamps and other welfare benefits.
Perhaps you've never learned about the Hegelian Dialectic, or the Cloward-Piven strategy, or Saul Alinsky organizing, and that may be why you are seeing the serpent on the wrong side of the argument. This is part of a larger movement to destroy America, and Pope Francis is cooperating with it, whether knowingly or not.
So are you.
There is nothing in the Gospel or the Deposit of Faith regarding secular politics or the organization of civil government. The Pope is in over his head here. None of this - America's internal national security and territorial integrity - has anything to do with his office.
Marxism, like Islam, came into being long after the public revelation closed. So did the unique American principle of the rule of law rather than the rule of man.
The Establishment Republicrat Party acts in bipartisan cooperation with Marxism and Islam against America. Establishment Catholicism acts in bipartisan cooperation with Satan against all that is good.
It is not possible to determine the true motives of Pope Francis, but it is certain that they have little to do with practical reality in the economics and politics and civil government controlling the secular living of citizen life.

I know that the Holy Spirit will not allow any pope to negate the doctrine of Our Church. However I have to question Francis and his idiocy. Is he suffering from dementia? Is he the forerunner for the anti Christ? Is he as a very well trained Jesuit leading us astray? What business of his what candidates run for office in the U.S? His mission on earth is to save souls. Why did he not address Catholic politicians who fund and endorse abortion, but receive the Eucharist? Is this not a bigger sin than the stupid Donald? I refuse to believe that this pope is naive as every Jesuit is very well educated and know what their remarks and comments entail. God save us from Francis the pope who is indoctrinated in Liberation Theology and stupidity.

This latest Vortex (click the image) highlights an important aspect of the office of Pope. While, on the one hand, dissident teachers of Catholicism have taught that almost nothing the Pope says is infallible, on the other, there are many more who incorrectly believe that virtually everything the Pope says is infallible. (See the Infallibility page.) Here, Michael puts it all into proper perspective. There is no such thing as "common infallibility". The Pope is human. And no Pope speaks infallibly when he speaks of Marxism, economics or the organization of civil government.

While Popes enjoy the charism of Infallibility when teaching on faith and morals, as established in the unchanging Deposit of Faith, they remain human, and imperfect, as was Peter and the original Apostles. Popes can err when not teaching on faith and morals, and whenever speaking on matters outside the Deposit of Faith. Two of these areas, particularly troubling in these days, involve Papal favor shown to areas of Godless Marxist ideology, and to the belligerent, invasive, domineering and menacing false religion of Islam.

The Dubia Aftermath shows that Pope Francis still doesn't get it. Non-response to the Dubia means a Warning; non-response to that means a second Warning, and finally, a non-Pope Council to depose the Pope.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
