Pope Francis out-of-bounds in saying Trump is not a good Christian

Pope Francis recently suggested that President Trump is not a good Christian because of his stand on border security. That may say more about the Pope than it does the President. One of the big no-nos of my days in Catholic elementary school was judging others – lest ye be judged. So, maybe the Pope deserves to be judged.

Popes generally reflect a mix of traits — sometimes saintly, sometimes political, and sometimes corrupt. The measure of a pope – a papacy – is which of these traits dominates. Pope John Paul II was mostly saintly – and is on his way to being one. But he was also political in a saintly way – pushing back at the evils of totalitarian secularism known as communism. He was devoid of corruption – at least as any human can be.

His successor, Pope Benedict XVI, could be said to have been none of the above traits – at least in terms of accomplishment or scandal. His papacy was marked by not being marked by much of anything. His principle claim to historic fame is his resignation. He was fortunate enough to head into retirement before the stain of mostly homosexual pedophilia started rising to the upper ranks of the Church hierarchy.

If one were to objectively prioritize the three traits noted above for Pope Francis, politics would take the lead with corruption edging out saintliness.
Wow! That is a pretty harsh assessment.

Perhaps it is the fact that Pope Frances lived in Argentina by his pre-papal name of Jorge Bergoglio during the reign of Juan Peron. He rose to prominence in the Church in an environment where it was difficult to attain such a rank without at least the acquiescence of the Peron administration. His reputation in that banana republic was sullied by rumors of his cooperation with the oppressive regime.

Apologists for Pope Francis excuse his cooperation with the Peron by doing a bit of whitewashing of the dictator. They claim that Juan Peron was a populist and champion of the poor – ignoring his admiration of Adolf Hitler, his offering exile to throngs of Nazi war criminals, jailing and torturing critics, shutting down education and all those other things despots do. Thousands of opponents were arrested and “disappeared.” The Guardian noted that “the Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus in Argentina, Jorge Bergoglio, was not among those who put themselves publicly at the forefront of that dangerous enterprise.” At one point, two priests who angered the Peron regime were kicked out of the Society of Jesus – leaving then vulnerable to the civil and military authorities. They were subsequently arrested and killed.

In addition to his political survival under an oppressive regime, Francis is a student of liberation theology. It is a Utopian theology that ironically manifests itself in such secular political movements as socialism and communism. Liberation theology places a religious imprimatur on the false idea that the interests of the poor are not considered by the rich and powerful – even though the theology or political philosophy, itself, is administered by people of wealth and power wherever it takes hold.

In terms of politics, Francis seems to be on the opposite side of John Paul, who challenged the authoritarian strongmen wherever he found them (except in Vatican City, of course), while Francis is more reluctant to call them out. If you recall, Francis’ response to ISIS killing Christians – or anyone else – was rather … well … wimpish.

More recently, Pope Francis appears to be more interested in minimizing the impact of the clergy sex scandal than to get to the bottom of it. He was reluctant to act against Cardinal Wuerl of the Washington, D.C. archdiocese for covering up the child abuse cases.

As far as I know, Francis has not called a single pro-abortion politician a bad Christian – excommunicated anyone for performing an abortion even though the Church rates abortion as the gravest of mortal sins that breaks the bond between Church and sinner and – if unforgiven by God — condemns the person to eternal damnation.

The fact that Francis did not speak out when Ireland made abortions legal suggests that he has taken a softer position than the Church demands.
The Pope’s judgement of Trump is only the latest in his continuing condemnations of the western world, capitalism, free markets and American foreign policy. In this most recent criticism, Pope Francis is siding with the radical left that believes in a borderless world. It may make him popular with the left and their moral relativism, but not with me.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. In God We Trust….NOT…In The Pope We Hope.
    Once again a perfect example of select groups of so called
    messengers of God attempting to justify their self appointed positions
    to control people’s lives while hiding their own failure to mankind.

  2. It’s obvious there needs to be a Schism in Vatican and Pope Francis be removed. He wants to create a new world order destroy freedom for Nations that wish to be free.

  3. Au contraire. It’s Pope Francis who is not a good Christian. In my opinion, he’s a fraud.

  4. Pope needs to concentrate on the removal of pedophiles in church and not criticize Trump on his religion.

  5. I don’t believe the Pope is a good Christian for saying Trump is not a good Christian. He is trying to protect the American people against drugs, murder, rape and all gang violence. The Pope is not a good Christian if he wants all of this violence committed against the American people by not putting up a wall to protect us. The Pope has a huge wall but he wants us not to have one. The people that are not Christians are the people that are entering the US illegally, they are not welcome.

  6. It’s like calling that kettle “ black “ , as to all that’s been going on, in their own House, think before one can even start, need to clean their own houses first , wouldn’t you think?

  7. Popes should be apolitical!

    However, this one is a shameless Socialist!

    He should just shut up and just do Poping!!!

  8. As the head of the worlds largest organized pedophile.organization.I think the pope has enough to deal with on his plate.straightening out the church and his miscreant indulged minions.he has set his moral authority on the shelf till further notice…..one mans opinion

  9. If the pope thinks he is a good Christian or Catholic, he needs to think again. In my lifetime he is the most controversial pope. I know he’s supposed to be infallible and he is supposed to lead the flock in Christ’s stead, but I have NO reverence for this guy — he is a communist and will destroy the Catholic Church!

  10. I think it is he Pope that is not a good Christian, actually I do think he is a Christian at all,, but a tool of Satan. He appears to fill the prophecy of being the False Prophet as indicated in the book of Revelations.

  11. I am Catholic and always will be, but never believe in this “Pope”. Is ANTICHRIST, Communist, Evil. Liar and is a shame for the people of Argentina.

  12. Pope Francis out-of-bounds in saying Trump is not a good Christian
    —–
    Yeah pope francis
    like you know what anything about our Lord Jesus CHRIST

    you – your assholeness pope francis

    you’ve been a disciple of allah/satan for many a years now

    I know all about your devil worshipping catholicism

    I used to be wrapped up in catholicism when I forced baptised by my parents

    on my forehead

    my whole family was wrapped up the satan worshipping catholicism

    until their deaths and they were no closer the God The Holy Father of all

    But catholicism does worship a god and he’s allah-devil-satan, etc…

    SO pope francis, our US President Donald J TRUMP is more in/of our CHRIST Jesus

    than you could ever hope to be, you devils advocate!!!

  13. I am a Catholic and I am ashamed of this so called pope he is ignorant and disgusting and should just shut his fing mouth. He is a sneak and probably worse. He needs to resign or be thrown out he has lost a lot of people that were good christians of which he is not.

  14. Oh please…don’t go there! You think you are holier than thou and yet you are just a human being born with sin. You have no special connection to our Lord Jesus that we all don’t have yet think and act as though you do. You are a MAN nothing more and nothing less.

  15. I wonder where is Papa Francisco with the Democrats that want to commit infanticide by doing full term abortion. what Papa Francisco thinks of the doctors that are ready to kill a newborn baby, with no mercy of any kind. why Papa Francisco has not made any comments on this. Is he agreeable to kill the babies full- term? I want him to criticize this abomination of the Democratic Party, this country has the right to accept or not the people that are invading our boundaries, would he let any imigrants cross the borders and wall of the Vatican without prejudice? President Trump is a good Christian and a good human being. I wish Papa Francisco will apologize for that irresponsible statement about our President who I, as a strong follower of the President consider an insult to his well being, and a very disrespectful statement. Papa Francisco, would you reconsider your words? I really hope so!!!

  16. The “Judge Not” sound bite is just one of the greatest misuses of biblical truth. We are called to “JUDGE” because judging is loving. Love DISCRIMINATES between RIGHT and WRONG and between GOOD and EVIL.
    The convoluted “Judge Not” comes from misstating what it really means. “Judge Not” was aimed by Go at the HYPOCRITICAL SCRIBES and PHARISEES – the elitist snobs who would “JUDGE OTHERS” while wallowing in the same exact sins as those they were judging. Romans 2:1-11 CORRECTS AND CLARIFIES as it says in part: “Do you suppose then, you who judges those who engage in such things and yet do them yourself, that you will escape the judgement of God?

    We can’t and never should judge someone else based on suspicion; hearsay; or rumor because we can’t be certain of another’s PRIVATE SINS. Such fire; ready, aim – shoot from the hip judgments can DESTROY someone’s good name which is arguably one’s greatest possession. Such “rushes to judgment” based on rumor are violations of God’s Commandment: “thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” Today, violations of that Commandments are common place and rewarded.

    HOWEVER, we are called to make judgments AGAINST PUBLIC SINS – especially PRIDEFUL GRAVE PUBLICLY CELEBRATED sins like murdering babies; using butchered baby body parts for research etc.;
    saluting lifeless and lethal sexual perversions etc.

    The author made a crazy statement about what he learned about “judge not” in Catholic schools. Unless the author attended the anti-Catholic Church schools subsequent to the sinister and superfluous Vatican II where the “Smoke of Satan” was permitted entry. The author should use his God given powers of discernment to forestall making foolish statements. If we can’t judge, how can we possibly forgive since forgiving requires making judgments? All of the Spiritual Works of Mercy require making judgments. As an example, how does one “admonish the sinner” unless a judgement is made as to the sin needing admonishment and as to the sinner needing to be WARNED? All of the Corporal Works of Mercy also require making judgments.

    As a Christian I would TRUST Donald Trump vastly more with my immortal soul as opposed to ever trusting the COMMUNIST fake Jorge Bergoglio a mockery of the Papacy.

  17. Pope Francis may need to look at himself and the evil that the Catholic church has done before he starts pointing a finger at someone else. No one is perfect, at least not here on Earth. I’m my own priest. The word of God gives me that authority. There only one who is the go between when it comes to God and man, the man the Lord Jesus Christ. According the God every christian is a priest. Amenn!

  18. Maybe a little leaning to the left, I want to believe that is only gossip, but I am getting afraid that the gossip becomes reality, I really hope that God is looking upon us and keeping us under his cover.

  19. Nibiru, the 10th planet that circles the our sun about every 5,250 years came last year closest to us in Nov. and is circling the sun now, and will be coming close to us around July 4, and causing asteroid impacts, it is bigger that Jupiter, as stated in Revelations, a lot of destruction here, keep an eye out for it, and prepare to survive.
    What did Hillary have to hide, she didn’t do anything wrong, did she??? why didn’t she give all her emails??? shes is an alcoholic, drug addict, a liar, murderer of Seth Rich, and Vince Foster who turned her emails to Wikileaks, she can’t walk, can’t talk, was coughing, and pedophile billy boy had to talk for her, you wanted them to be president, are you a retard stupid liberal demon-rat, we the people voted for a non politician that is not stealing us blind, and you want more theft of our money, and destruction of our economy, you have shit for brains
    look at the high waste, and pollution our cars are producing, a 200 mpg Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office collecting dust, liquid gas does not burn, Volkswagen has a 264 mpg diesel not coming here, boycott the oil company owned auto company’s, spread the word.
    The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, have this as your debate, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. Do you want your world back? spread the word boycott the auto company’s that are destroying our world. the inventor of the water to hydrogen auto was murdered by our Democrat Government, get
    mad get real mad of the Democrats. Also audit all the Senator’s and representatives, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them. Do these 2 things, and the Demo rats will be finished, don’t do this and the civil war, will escalate, and the economy will collapse, get this out all over the USA. this is the only thing that will bring the economy around.put this out , and spread the word to boycott the auto company’s don’t buy a new car/ or truck. do this Trump, and we will have our dreams back again.

  20. Whatever our opinions are of Donald, at least he isn’t pontificating to us while buggering little alter boys in the arse.

  21. I wish the Pope would stay out of politics!
    I can’t believe he is judging this man.
    He does not know what is in his heart!

    PLEASE ATTEND TO THE CHURCH!!!!

  22. I sure don’t want to judge anyone, but, oh boy. This guy Francis is doing a heck of a job trying to turn his catholics against one man (Trump). How he is any different from any mainstream media or libs is just a joke. Someone should ask him how he feels about killing babies. Although at this point in time I doubt any Catholics are left who wd care as to his opinion. He sh go back and read some more as to what Jesus says about the people in charge (politics). Jesus tells us (I am paraphrasing) leave those who govern to themselves. God is who is important leave them to themselves. Don’t go butting in Pope Francis.

  23. dear pope: trump may not be a good christian, but you never will be one.

  24. Says The Pimp of The Vatican who oversees Gay Prostitutes Servicing the 75-80% Homosexual Clergy of The Roman Catholic (Not Christian) “Church” of Satan & of course Protector of Boy Rapists, Nun Rapists & Now Priests who Grope Dying Women on their Death beds receiving “Last Rites”. Look at the Face of this Demon Closet Homosexual Communist Satan Worshipper & wonder why his “Best Friend” is a Mullah from The Larger Sect of Satan – Islam. You want to be Christian? Read The Bible & Do What It Says! You Don’t NEED Men telling you Jack Squat about The Bible – READ IT FOR YOURSELF!

  25. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church should be born again and believe every Word of the bible which according to John 1 is Jesus Christ the Messiah . Agree with the writer re judge not and also the unconditional land covenant GOD made with Abraham , Isaac , Jacob and Israel giving Israel the land from Euphrates in the north and the river of Egypt in the south as their unconditional inheritance . He gave the arabs 21 nations and oil in abundance , He gave the gentiles the rest of the world and riches of gold , diamonds , oil , gas and precious stones . And the arabs and gentiles covet Israel’s land inheritance a tiny portion in the Middle East as well as their inheritance . God and His Word is not pleased and will judge accordingly .

  26. I learned in catholic school the Pope is infallible in matters of the church didn’t say anything about politics, this Pope seems like he could have been Obamas vice president.

  27. My family has been catholic for over 1400 yrs and have built churches here in the U.S. I can truthful say that THIS pope will in time Destroy what is left of the oldest Christian Church in the world. He is a Socialist and Socialist have NO place in ANY Christian Religion , NONE

  28. Pope Francis should be ashamed. Francis is not as good as the puss in a pimple on Trump’s’ ass. Amen.

  29. The Pope doesn’t comprehend Christianity. NONE of us is ‘a good Christian’. EACH of us needs Christ for any SEMBLENCE of ‘goodness’. The Bible tells us that our righteousness is as filthy rags. 100% of any righteousness in us that has any value is WHOLLY a GIFT to us through the blood of Christ. IF, and that is a BIG ‘if’, the Pope even IS a Christian, it is PURELY because of the shed blood of the PERFECT, only begotten son of God, Jesus Christ and has ZERO to do with anything ‘good’ produced by the pope in his life.

  30. When Francis was first elected Pope, someone asked him about the sexually abusive priests. His reply was. “Who am I to judge?” If he won’t judge acknowledged sexually abusive priests, then why should he judge Trump? Because this Pope is a socialist and refuses to acknowledge the good Trump has done. Because Trump is reversing all of Marxist-Socialist Obama’s efforts to destroy America’s constitution, economy, military, and culture. And because Trump wants to secure our borders to promote the general welfare, which is mentioned in the preamble to the U.S. constitution.

  31. PRETTY good assessment. You seemed to have missed by just a smidge, although I could be misunderstanding your full statement. Basically, ‘judge not, lest you be judged’ was an admonition to find the sin of no other any more worthy of damnation than the sins of ourselves. Each of us who has a relationship with God ONLY has that relationship through the PURE, SHED BLOOD of God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. All other ‘righteousness’ on our part is as filthy rags. We ARE to use the judgment that God blessed us with to discern right from wrong and to testify to the power of the newness of our transformed lives and to identify evil in the world and the ramifications of that evil.

  32. I encourage you to find a Bible believing body of believers and allow God’s provision of a vocally and visibly degenerate ‘pope’ to help you see that Catholicism pollutes the perfect Word of God and His message to us that NO RIGHTEOUSNESS on our part contributes to NOR sustains our salvation. 100% of our relationship to Him is through turning from believing that any part of our salvation has anything whatsoever to do with our good works (as filthy rags) and is COMPLETELY a GIFT paid for by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Praying to Mary, is purely idolatry, believing being bad will send you to Hell is anti-Bible, not understanding that once you are ‘born again’, as Jesus taught, you can’t be ‘unborn’ as a child of God. You can make decisions that cause you to never mature in the word and grow your relationship with God, but if you ‘repent’ from believing that you can contribute anything to your salvation and turn TO every iota of your salvation being fully a gift, you THEN do good works to honor God and NOT to try to curry favor with Him, which He has already told us will never work.

  33. Huh. Are you a catholic, “Dear Writer”? Listen, I can’t find an author for this piece, although I didn’t search at all beyond where the name of the author normally is. No matter, just so you know why I call you “Dear Writer”, or DW for short. DW, your article is quite well written, educational, and well, I agree with you on most everything you wrote. The couple bones I have to pick though have to do with, firstly, the statement that Pope John Paul will soon be a saint. The problem with catholics is they are so terribly misinformed on issues of Christianity: We are all saints, silly. Its written in black and white throughout the Bible, even the catholic Bible. Secondly, the idea that any of the popes were unaware of the atrocities that were being carried out in the darkness of the cloisters is highly unlikely, in fact that sort of behavior was going on since the catholic religion became popular, beginning in the medieval times at least. Why did popes and other authority within the catholic dynasty’s overlook the “behavior”? It wasn’t convenient, for one thing, to address the behavior once it had taken hold. It is, and certainly was, so widely practiced that a scourge to root out the horrors of homosexual and heterosexual rape would probably have brought down the religion in its entirety. Then, where would the tyrants have imposed their rule? And third, and really this is a two-fold assertion; the idea that Trump is a Christian is highly suspect at best, and since you will no doubt try to impose your fallacy of the concept of judgement by Christians at this point, let me give you a small but very important lesson: We are absolutely called, to judge. To undergird the first part of my assertion, one must only look at Trump’s “fruit”, or rather his behavior. Yes, he does his part as he has been hired to do by the American people and plays the conservative, but he has not changed his behavior of calling people names, of holding grudges, and taking revenge. There is no record of him rectifying his statement that he doesn’t need to repent, and no apology for first lying about paying Stormy Daniels off and then admitting he did. So you could have saved yourself the trouble of defending Trump, but that seems to be the motivation behind yours and so many other supporters’ prime drive. Anyone that criticizes the “holy one” will be attacked and trampled, eh? For the judgement portion of my statement, one has only to look, again, to the Word of God. I’d strongly advise you do so before taking it upon yourself to judge others, such as your pope, for example. And by the same principle, I have no fear of being judged by you or anyone else except our (only) Father.

  34. Maybe I might listen to the Pope if he takes down the wall around the Vatican.

  35. This pope is one of the reasons I no longer practice Catholicism. Not to mention the actions of priests who molest others.

  36. If he thinks we should have open borders, WHY does he have a BIG wall and armed guards all around his residence?

  37. pope francis is not good catholic along with his pervert cronies….apparently the good pope doesn’t know a good Christian form a pervert catholic priest…pope francis keep your comments to yourself and get your priests in line with their faith..and the perverts in jail.

  38. I don’t doubt but what Trump is as good a christian as the pope. The pope needs to handle the problems with his priests before he starts on American politics. He already has more than he can handle.

  39. As a Catholic, I agree with this article totally
    His stand should be against all the
    Priests who molested all these children
    He has enough troubles in the church to take time to criticize President Trump about not allowing illegals to enter the country
    I’m very deceived in the Pope

  40. I left the church after the pedophile priest scandal which was ignored and spread by bishops and Monsignors and the Pope. I don’t agree with anything this Pope thinks or says, including what WE should do about OUR borders.

  41. The Roman Catholic Church wants to be numero uno number 1 as head of all religions – ecumenism –
    as a one world religion under a one world govt. controlling the world . That is not a good outcome for freedom . It is written in the Word of GOD that the Jewish Messiah will destroy this one world govt and religion on His return with the breath of His mouth . And lead the world in righteousness from Jerusalem .

  42. The Pope should not be political. Politics and religion have always been separated. Selecting one party over another is not Christian. Our President should be respected by all as the president has always been.

  43. Pope Francis says Trump is not a good Christian that being said I would have to say Pope Francis is not a good Pope. He has mired himself in the Political circle violating separation of Church and State. he should be attending to the scandals with in the priesthood and setting the Church back on the right track to many of his remarks and ideas are to the left and representative of his time in Argentina, I would prefer another Pope like John Paul this one will have to have some good answers to GOD when he is called home!!!

  44. Wait the Pope signs a pledge with the devil aka the grand imam of Egypt’s Al-Azhar, the highest seat of learning in Sunni Islam and President Trump isn’t a good Christian?

  45. Since that phony pope sees fit to get involved in politics I feel the Catholic Church should be forced to start paying taxes in the U.S. We had a REAL Pope in John Paul II but this Socialist piece of trash from Argentina should be forced to resign.

  46. I am not a Papal appologist, probably a p…poor christian. I’ll do it anyway, judging that is to say. In my humble opinion Mr. Trump is not a bad christian, he is a fraud posing as a christian. After years of publicly supporting a woman’s right to choose, he thinks being president might be great embellishment to overcome his shyness, all of a sudden, he’s prolife. How many abortions do you think he engineered in one way or another before reaching his come to Jesus moment? He is mentally closer to a Juan Peron (a Catholic) than even a good citizen. He’s also dumb.
    As for Pope Francis according to wickipedia, he was ordained in 1969, taught school until 1973 at which time he became the leader of the very small number of Jesuits in country. In as much as Peron died in 1974 after a long illness, I doubt the got to know each other very well. Oh well.

  47. Pope Francis needs to pay attention to the church … Priests and Bishops! Who molest children.. some nerve he calls anybody non Christian… So… Pope Francis !! Take a hard look at the Church and yourself!! Fix the problem.. I was born baptized and confirmed Catholic … leave my President my Country alone!! God bless my President… and The USA!!

  48. My opinion is that the pope is not a Christian. His world views do not agree with the bible and the teaching of Jesus. It is a shame that the “Leader” of the Catholic Church is so out of touch with Christians.

  49. As a practicing Catholic this is the first Pope I have to question his spiritual leadership. He is too political, too progressive and too opinionated in things that are not in his realm of expertise. It is not his place to condemn or praise a government leader. He has embraced areas of nature that are not his to force on the millions of Catholics practicing today. He seems more of a deterrent than a spiritual leader.

  50. …says the Alinskyite Pope, who has a bundle full of openly gay Bishops and Priests, in the Vatican as advisors and aides and who has done little or nothing to cleanse the Church of these abominations.
    Why is it that you can criticize a duly elected American President and the system of government and economic system developed by our Founders 240 years ago, which is the envy of the World, while you do not clean out your own stinking house? Why is it you see the splinter in our eye, but not the log in your own?

  51. The Pope should worry about his own flock before he goes after the President. His own priest are not Christian….how many young children have been abused by them? They have hurt the Catholic Church and I am a Catholic. Shame, shame, shame!

  52. Christianity is what it is the teaching of God’s word period, change one thing to appease the liberals or progressives it then means nothing it’s worthless you may as well worship Satan himself as that is what you will be doing.

  53. Like the U.S. House of Representative, the college of cardinals elected their speaker of the house and they call him Poop – like Nasty Piglosi (a catholic protecting and defending abortion).
    Anyone who cares what Francis says has much bigger problems.

  54. anyone with even a passing knowledge of the buffoon trump’s behavior would say that not only is trump not a good Christian, there is no evidence that he is EVEN a Christian. He is a scum of the earth deplorable as are those low IQ pukes who still back him.

  55. denis- your parents shortchanged you of more than just the “n” you needed to spell your name correctly.
    You have diarrhea of the mouth. You have a subpar brain and hence a low IQ. Say 5 Hail Marys and make 2 trips to Mecca monthly for the next 50 years.

  56. Brycey Thompson the VII. Sad. Evil. Waste of protoplasm. Goal in life- to be a suicide bomber but has no guts.

  57. How many illegal aliens has the pope given Vatican citizenship too??? ZERO. Hypocrisy from a Hippocrate

  58. I am a Lutheran and a very conservative Lutheran. Our pastors may have private views on political things but never in the pulpit. Their role is the spiritual welfare of their individual members. I know of several acquaintances who have left the Catholic church.

  59. The Roman Catholic church initially had popes who all were married men. Peter, the first pope was a married man as well as many after him. Paul in the new testament wrote one could spend more time spreading the gospel message if single but it was better to marry than to burn. Or perhaps today we should say marry rather than go after little boys. I am not a Catholic but a member of a conservative Lutheran body who believe in everything the Bible says is to be our laws and the way we live our lives here on earth until our heavenly father calls us home to heaven. Not that we deserve that but that Jesus came to earth to live a perfect life and then gave up his life as punishment for what we deserve. He did it out of love for us and our heavenly father counts his death on the cross as payment for our sins so we can look forward to life ever after in heaven. And, best news yet, that invitation is free for all who believe Jesus, son of God. is their savior, too.

  60. The Pope used to be a street preacher of Marxism in his Buenos Aires days – and still has not chaged.

  61. There Should not be a mixture of church and state. Let’s put them all on a boat and ship them to Rome. Then we can see how the Vatican and Italian government deals with the crisis.

  62. the pope should stick to religion he has his hands full with that
    and stay out of politicks

  63. Who cares what he thinks..He’s a nobody..A False Teacher of Jesus and my God.His God is not the same as mine.

  64. Maybe while ur pointing the finger at all of us think of the four looking u in the face . Plus why does the pope live behind the walls with guards. Let him invite all the illegals to live with him or give the millions of money the Catholic Church has so they can live better in there own country’s.

  65. The
    Pope has certainly stirred up a hornets nest and brought out all the weidoes. Lets face up to it; the Catholic church and America are run by the Antichrists you are all lost soles I thank God I’m not American but live in Gods country Australia

  66. Low IQ pukes. Who are the ones wearing pink p—-y hats, and making threats to Trump supporters, harassing teen age boys, assaulting Trump supporters exercising their constitutional rights of free speech, who applaud the murder of unborn children, who place illegal aliens above legal U.S. citizens and protect them after they murder American citizens. You low life. You talk about low IQ that’s all the people who support Democrats such as yourself.

  67. As an admirer of Pope Francis, Iam taking a second and third look at Him. Its difficult to publicly admit it. My brother has been telling me P. Francis is communist and I have disagree d. However the sexual abuse accusations , especially those from Chile are heavily weighted me to take a deeper look into it.
    Yesterday I attended at conference on the abuse in the US . The análisis done by John Jay college left me very worried about the future of my Catholic faith.

  68. This guy has no right to talk about anyone. In my book, after seeing and hearing all his junk, he’s no better than anyone else. Should keep his mouth out of US Politics.
