The questions this article wrestles with involve "evolving" Catholic theology and teaching covering areas such as "Liberation Theology", "Social Justice", supposedly pending "Environmental / Climate Disasters", forms of Civil Government Organization, particularly involving some imagined "New World Order" and "Global Government" displacing and replacing Sovereign Nationhood. Meaning one, big, global government, with perfect egalitarianism, peace, happiness and full bellies for all.
Do these newer teachings emphasize The World, or The Kingdom? Has there been a major shift in where the Church now directs man? If so, how much of the Church is involved in it?
Let's be clear about one thing: to date, no Pope, including Pope Francis, has ever officially and infallibly issued any new, changed or deleted original doctrine handed down from Christ and His original Apostles. Understanding of original doctrine grows and develops, but core doctrine does not change.
That is not to say the Church has not had multiple "bad" Popes. Infallible does not mean impeccable. The Church, and the entire Deposit of Faith entrusted to her, has survived many trials intact, and we may expect that to continue until He comes again.
That being said, Marxism-Leninism is clearly gaining ground in political thought, in America, in the world, and in the Church. But it isn't always calling itself Marxism-Leninism; most often, it doesn't identify itself at all; it advances under various disguises, sometimes Scientific, sometimes Democratic, sometimes Religious, sometimes Academic, etc., etc., etc. It lies, in other words. It must lie. Marxism is a lie.
In the 1950's, publisher Carl Marzani, a Russian KGB secret agent who had worked in the US State Department during WWII, published The Open Marxism of Antonio Gramsci. This marked a turning point in the predominant thinking of Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries, who had already made major inroads into infiltrating and infecting education, political Parties and entertainment all over the world.
Rather than promoting total alienation against the status quo leading to violent social upheaval, Gramsci Marxism sought to advance Marxism-Leninism gradually, and continuously, possibly without end. Marxism would achieve world domination through phony "evolution" rather than eventual violent revolution. Not a natural evolution, of course; but through feeding the world a steady diet of lies for the purpose of building up Marxism itself, as a good, positive, charitable way of thinking. Marxism could come out of the closet and present itself in public, and be ever increasingly accepted, rather than opposed, right inside non-Marxist nations. America might be the perfect host.
After all, America was the land of Freedom of Speech, and of Press, and of Association, and of the free flow of ideas. Using freedom of speech, Marxism would promote itself as the true savior of mankind, hiding its true evil goal of world domination. The infantile and impossible Communist Utopian Worker's Paradise, a truly stupid ideal, was what would be openly promoted, for the indoctrination, recruitment and motivation of all the mal-educated Useful Idiots absolutely necessary to advance all the phony Marxist causes in any Democracy.
Marxist organizer Saul Alinsky had a head start on this thinking, at least the deceptive infiltration part of it. He "organized" everything from labor unions to small business organizations, which may seem odd for a Marxist Revolutionary, but he, as a rabidly anti-religion atheist, also organized churches, and even the Catholic Church. He must have been very smooth, deceptive, and a good recruiter of other evil deceivers. Alinsky dreamed of a destructive organization of organizations with tentacles infiltrated into every social structure and institution of society. The Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) fulfilled Alinsky's dream, and gave birth to other organizations, including the infamous Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN), the voter-fraud pet of Comrade President Obama, peace be upon him.
All the Marxist-Leninist phony cause grass-roots organizations would follow the Hegelian Dialectic, step by step, cycle by cycle, over and over again. Stage public rallies and demonstrations, coordinated with media coverage, publish an inflammatory exposé or broadcast an inflammatory documentary, anything and everything to stir the public to "there ought to be a law" outrage. Then, use the courts and/or the legislature and/or executive power and/or bureaucratic regulation, whether local, state or federal, to grow the government and raise taxes to solve the "problem" and convince the public of their good intentions, and/or the goodness of evil, and/or the truth of a falsehood. All while convincing the majority that the minority is actually the majority.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. On topic after topic; issue after issue.
Meanwhile, education, academia, journalism, art and entertainment are ever increasingly seduced and motivated by the promoted goodness and fairness of Marxist-Leninist thought, especially when compared to educationally, publicly and popularly demonized Capitalism.
So is it any wonder Pope Francis so clearly favors Marxist global government over free markets and liberty of man? If Marxist thought has made such great progress here, in the USA, to the point where an actual anti-American Marxist-Leninist Revolutionary has been elected President, twice, how much more progress must it have made in Pope Francis' native Socialist "Democratic Republic" of Argentina?
He learned to love Marxism and hate Capitalism in school, the same way lots of Americans are learning the same errors today. He is steeped in it. He doesn't know any better. At least I hope he doesn't know any better.
He, and all Marxists, criticize Capitalists and the possessors of private property (wealth) as being overly materialistic and attached to material. Yet the stupid egalitarianism of Marxism seeks equality in material, rather than equality in civil rights. Equality in private property (wealth). So who is the real materialist here? Marxism is obsessed with material wealth. Marxism pretends intention to take material from those who earned it to redistribute it to those who did not earn it; Marxism in truth intends to dominate the world through assumed dictatorship. That's it in a nutshell; most Marxists don't know that. Marxism itself is a lie.
Alexis de Tocqueville came to America to discover how it came to be that the American Revolution succeeded, and the French Revolution failed. What he discovered was that the sole difference was the Religion of the People. Liberty demands high morality, and morality flows from religion. Apart from religion, morality dies. The French Revolution was a secular revolution; the American Revolution was based on Fundamental Moral Principles that sprang from faith, specifically Christian faith, and the morality that flows from it.
So the French Revolution, which was as much against religion as it was against nobility and aristocracy, resulted in the Great Terror, and the Napoleonic Wars, and Napoleon crowning himself Emperor, and France was right back where she started before the Revolution.
Yet the aftermath of the American Revolution produced an unleashed citizenry who prospered by the work of their own hands, because they were freed, and allowed, and encouraged, to prosper by the work of their own hands. If the new America was less than perfect, it was closer to perfection than any other land in history, or since. The American Revolution, to this day, is the only Revolution that ever succeeded, in all of world history.
We have talked about psychologically induced grand social delusions. These widespread delusions, or popular belief in things not true, have reached global proportions. The world is radically affected, nations are endangered, peace and prosperity of man is endangered, and wars and war strategies are inappropriately applied due to these global delusions. The United Nations appears to be leading the charge in deluding the world about multiple non-existent emergencies and threats to mankind and the environment.
Pope Francis is among the deluded. At least I hope he is merely deluded. He has been invited to speak to Congress when he visits the United States in September. One of his personally chosen Vatican Advisers, Jeffrey Sachs, is either a died-in-the-wool Marxist deceiver and perpetrator of global delusions to further Marxist goals, or he is an absolute blithering idiot. I would bet on the former rather than the latter.
Sachs still pushes the long ago disproved and downright stupid Human Population Problem open fraud of Paul Ehrlich. He backs every open fraud and hoax discussed in the Eco-Nazi treatment of these purposely induced social delusions. Including the need for "sustainable" devlopement, taxing carbon - the most plentiful material in the universe - and the old hoaxes involving global redistribution to eliminate hunger, eliminate every want, and make the world just absolutely perfect for every single human, dog and cat.
Moving Vatican attention away from the Kingdom in favor of the World.
If Marxism could make the world perfect, there would be no need of heaven. See? Do not laugh at this. Untold millions all over the world believe that worldly perfection is possible. The world is being systematically moved away from faith in God and into secular global delusion. Not just America; the whole world.
So this Jeffrey Sachs moral monster has stated that, when Pope Francis speaks to the American Congress, it is hoped that he will challenge the American idea of citizen rights from the natural law of God. Specifically, equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He would like to see the Pope lecture us on how our rights should be sublimated to "virtues", which he lists as income equality, universal health care, sustainable development, population control, etc., etc., etc.
In a recent interview with Cliff Kincaid and Jerry Kenny, which you can view by clicking the image, I was asked, if the Holy Father does as Jeffrey Sachs advises, and asks America to pay less attention to this nonsense of equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, if that might ultimately prove damaging to Republican candidates.
What could I say? A Pope of the Catholic Church would be opposing Natural Law, and the Divine Author of Natural Law. These rights come from God, not man. No man can take them away or alter them. We are a nation of laws, and these particular Natural Laws are the centerpiece, the bedrock foundation of America. It is the very principle that made the American Revolution succeed, and it was the lack of this principle that caused the French Revolution to fail. Belief in God. Very simple; nothing to it.
As far as who would be fired up the most between the Marxocrats and the Republicrats, I would be more concerned about how many Catholics might be caught up in this inspirational delusion. A Pope can bring a lot of credibility to the various frauds and hoaxes of Marxism.
But, he hasn't spoken to Congress yet. We shall see.
All of these many, many delusions have an origin, and we have to go back to the first untrue "fact" to be generally accepted by major populations. The early heresies; Protestantism; the Denominations that sprang from Protestantism; these are the delusions that separate Christians today. Marxism early on glommed onto "scientific" untruths to advance its cause.
You should take another look at Darwinism.
I know, I know, every time I mention Darwin some of you groan and say there he goes again, but I'm telling you, Darwin's theory has held the key to the unraveling of all this falsehood, from the beginning.
John Paul the Great said that Dawin's theory was "more than a hypothesis", and that might have been the only thing he ever said that I disagreed with. It is a disproved hypothesis, treated as a Scientific Theory. It was disproved, multiple times, in experiments involving short lived species. Evidence for it has never been found in the fossil record. (See the Origin of Species page.) I'm not offering any other theory; I'm merely stating the scientific fact that Darwin's theory is fatally flawed. It's universal acceptance, despite real science, proves all that I'm saying here about global delusion.
Marx seized onto Darwinism, and onto Freudianism, like a bulldog. They presented grand opportunities to call into question the existence, and the need, for God, and to advance immorality, since morality is based on religion.
I'm telling you, if you get hold of one thread in the fabric of Darwinism, and pull, you will begin to unravel the whole thing. If you keep pulling, you will unravel Freudianism; if you keep pulling, you will eventually unravel all the induced delusions contained in all of Scientism, including all the delusions of Marxism itself.
so, is Pope Francis a duped "Useful Idiot" of Marxism, is he Delusional, or is he actually In On It?
Who am I to judge?

The pope, in his speech to the European Council calls for them to have courage, memory and a humane utopian vision. So, he knows utopia is what it is all about, he just wants it to be humane...just like Gramsci..no violence but a peaceful take over.

Right, but the only difference is that we know for a fact that Gramsci knew full well what it was all about, and that the goal wasn't Utopia, but Dictatorship. So we're really still up in the air regarding whether Pope Francis is a a Dupe, Delusional or Evil. It can only be one of the three.

Leaving for Mass soon, but we will be busy all holiday weekend. Nothing happens automatically on this website. Don't really know when or how often I will be able to check things, so, if you submit something, only submit it once. Eventually I will see it and handle it.
May 31 1968 my Marcie and I were married. The 31st of this month will be 47 years. We're just doing stuff around the house and yard, and spending time together. But every once in awhile, this holiday weekend, I will check things here. God bless.

Correction, of my earlier response to you: According to Malachi Martin's The Keys of This Blood, Antonio Gramsci may have actually been less of an evil genius and more of a duped stupid ass, as was Vladimir Lenin. See the Stupidity of Lenin link. Apparently, Gramsci actually believed Marx's seductive lies.
As did most of the famous followers of Marx, as proved by failed five-year-plan after five-year-plan, and failed great-leap-forward after great-leap-forward. The only Marxists who were just plain evil may have been Marx himself, Stalin, Hitler, Ho and Pol Pot. That's not to say they were not stupid too, but that they were not driven by any stupid ideology; they merely took advantage of Marx's fraudulent ideology.

I agree 100% with your assessment that belief in the teachings of Darwin and subsequent evolutionists are really the core of the problem. If I can convince you that intelligence is a product of a chain of random acts, I will own you - body, blood, mind and soul. Keep speaking the truth.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

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.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
