Pope’s socialist slip is showing

All the yakking about good intentions. On the surface all socialist utopian proposals are pregnant with good intentions but poisoned by the lust for power and control.

My experience with jesuits has taught me they lack humility–the most important characteristic of great men.

They are like oligarchs everywhere–utopia is just one more blue ribbon commission and regulatory regime away.

I could have written this encyclical if I could stop laughing long enough–central planning, fatal conceit ring a bell?

Oh, and like all WELL INTENTIONED SOCIALIST TRACTS–THE POPE GAVE US A HEALTHY DOSE OF ANTI-AMERICANISM CLOAKED AS ANTI FREE MARKETISM. How else would this little man take up for the Palestinians and the Cubans? He thinks he is on the winning side–the side of the socialist oligarchs–just want to get a place at the table of power. Advises Catholics to pray for the Climate Treaty to be completed.

Also recall that a majority of Catholics voted for the Bamster, who hates them and the Jews, with a deep hatred. Catholics are well schooled in accepting oligarchs with a socialist bent.

You see the Catholic church, from the time it became a secular power and more hierarchical, has always been in favor of authoritarianism, and what’s one step away from authoritarianism–totalitarianism.

I knew he was a despot, but this writer thinks he is well-intentioned–so was Mao, and Lenin, and Mussolini–they were for the progress of the human race–a utopia. Let’s call it social justice–maybe a little cramped but good for you and your fellow humans.

  1. The Pope has taken a guest with him to the Vatican…..Pachamama is watching you, so take care.

    (From Wikipedia: “Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother. [1] In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. She causes earthquakes and is typically in the form of a dragon. She is also an ever present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth.”)

  2. Got under your skin, did I?

  3. I regret this, but I think it’s time I said goodbye to JunkScience. You’ve done great work over the years, but of late you’ve turned toward political polemics instead of science. And that is sad. You could still accomplish so much. Time to go to the Heartland Institute’s website and other similar locations.

    As to “Catholics are well schooled in accepting oligarchs with a socialist bent.”…..

    Depends on whom you call “Catholic,” of course. I guess, by your reasoning, that’s why Quebec went from being the most Catholic to the least Catholic place in North America in around five years.

    Unfortunately, there have been plenty of inferior popes, while some of the best get ignored by history.

  5. One final, parting comment: “this writer,” Dr Samuel Gregg, is the Director of Research for the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. I respect his opinion on such matters very highly, probably — well, no, actually certainly — much more so than Rush Limbaugh’s opinions.

    • I agree with your comments about this site, Ken. Why Gregg’s article was linked is amazing in a way, since part of his summation must irritate our host:
      “None of this is to deny that some economic conservatives’ criticisms of Pope Francis since 2013 have verged on the absurd. The briefest of glances at the Pope’s writings underscores that Jorge Bergoglio is no liberation theologian. It is equally nonsensical to describe this pope as a Marxist. Indeed, Pope Francis’s pointed defense of innocent life from conception onwards, his forthright condemnations of euthanasia, and his increasingly ferocious criticisms of the fantasy-world otherwise known as “gender theory” contradicts the most basic of contemporary left-wing orthodoxies.”

  6. John:
    The Pope is certainly all wrong–but it is not just the Catholics.
    The national leaders of the Lutheran Church recently directed the ministers to preach about global warming at least once a month!

    In response I held a global warming info session at my church and the members got to hear all the things they don’t get from the nightly news. It was very well received.
    I suggest other people also try to bring scientific truth to their religious groups. Otherwise, they will continue to preach false science as if it was a religion.

  7. Leaders of Government, Science and Religion – Earth’s politically correct but unholy trinity – suffer from common defects:

    Selfishness, fear, inability to grasp the benevolent and probably infinite

    REALITY/GOD/UNIVERSE/TRUTH:

    The Creator, Destroyer and Sustainer of every atom, life and planet in the Solar System is the pulsar in the core of the Sun, powered by the FORCE of neutron repulsion [1] and guided by a “conscious and intelligent Mind” [2] Max Planck recognized behind the Matrix of All Physical Matter in 1944.

    We need to appreciate, rather than to fear or to ignore, the solar pulsar core that we cannot change.
