The thing  to keep in mind about the Vatican and the pope ....

It's a political power  AND
It's a financial power 


Then and only then is it a religious power
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

For the record, I'm non denominational, meaning I am not Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox.
Most of all I'm non-authoritarian.

Can we really trust anything coming out of the Vatican ?  That's were most of the Homo Capensi (Capensis plural) are hiding ?

The Pope writes an Encyclical on Global Warming much like many globalist traitors have ?  With carbon taxes Homo Sapien exploitation the answer ?

Note to self keep out of debates on politics and religion. Maybe start a comedy thread starting with jokes on irony

Yea on the one hand we have the Catholics and the other the Protestants

(a) Catholic church and how it got infiltrated by pagan's etc extensively documented on the forum

(b) Protestants an operation founded by the Rosicrucians on a mission to destroy the Catholic church because of the destruction of the Knights Templar.

I'm really fed up that its one sided Catholic bashing round here. Say anything and I get called a "Jesuit Agent", its really frustrating.

Watchmen on the Wall

Presently there are many ministries which intercede for the United States and for the nations of the world. No serious Christian can doubt that evil men have come to power in the world, whose purpose is to overthrow free forms of government and to suppress the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, few Christians seem to be aware that this same anti-Christ network has infiltrated the Church with a hidden agenda of subverting the true faith and converting believers to their false religious system.
....
Today, the New Age Movement and other elements of the New World Order have infiltrated the Bible-believing churches and are posing as Christian ministries. According to New Age author, Jeremy Rifkin, their expressed goal is to use the Evangelical Church as the primary instrument to bring the New World Order with its One World Religion to birth.  As a result of this conspiracy, many sincere Christians are being led into deception by the abundance of false teachers and prophets on the Christian scene and organizations that have the appearance of doing good works, but are apostate in their doctrine and practice.

Historic meeting of pope and Russian Orthodox head seen nearer

An historic meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church is "getting closer every day," a senior Orthodox prelate said in an interview published on Sunday.

The unprecedented meeting would be a significant step towards healing the 1,000-year-old rift between the Western and Eastern branches of Christianity, which split in the Great Schism of 1054.

"Now such a meeting is getting closer every day but it must be well prepared," Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church's foreign relations department, said in an interview with Italy's Corriere della Sera newspaper.

He said the meeting between the head of the 1.2 billion member Roman Catholic Church and the head of Russian Orthodox Church - which counts some 165 million of the world's 250 million Orthodox Christians - would take place in a "neutral" country, not in Moscow or the Vatican. Austria or Hungary were possibilities, he said.

Hilarion, one of the most influential people in world Orthodoxy, said he could not say if the meeting could take place as early as this year, but there was currently "a good dynamic" between the two Churches.
 
Francis told reporters on the plane returning from a trip to Turkey last year that he had sent word to Kirill that he was willing to meet the Russian patriarch "wherever you want, you call me and I'll come".

The Russian Orthodox Church has accused Catholics of using their new freedoms of religion following the break-up of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s to try to convert people from the Orthodox, a charge the Vatican has denied.

One of the biggest bones of contention is the fate of many church properties that Soviet dictator Josef Stalin confiscated from Eastern Rite Catholics, who worship in an Orthodox rite but owe their allegiance to Rome.
 
Stalin gave the property to the Russian Orthodox Church but after the fall of communism, Eastern Rite Catholics took back many church properties, mostly in western Ukraine.

Very, very, good find TahoeBlue.


While I'm here on this thread and the topic is The Pope I would just like to float this idea :

The Vatican is complex, its not "one thing" it is Federal . . . its made up of power blocks that each struggle with each other. Unfortunately most people focus on the Pope. To give an analogy, that would be think that President Obama is a divine monarch, and that Congress, The House of Representatives and the 50 odd States, The Supreme Court etc . . .  Don't exist.

In a similar manner the Catholic Church is a complex beast made up of all sorts of little empires, which compete for power, and much like the Republicans and Democrats then place a figurehead puppet as "President", the Church places a figurehead as Pope.

Bolivian President Evo Morales presents Pope Francis with a crucifix carved into a wooden hammer and sickle, in La Paz, Bolivia, Wednesday, July 8, 2015. The crucifix is a replica, originally designed by Jesuit activist Luis Espinal, who was assassinated in 1980 by suspected paramilitaries during the months that preceded a military coup. Even though the Vatican was not expecting the unusual gift, it is seeking to explain the "Communist crucifix" given to Francis, saying it's a symbol of dialogue and not an offensive melding of faith and ideology.

Jesuit Jerry Brown to meet Jesuit Pope and cut California Gas use by 50 percent by Dictate 

http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/California-Gov-Jerry-Brown-to-Meet-With-Pope-on-Climate-Change-313316311.html
California Gov. Jerry Brown to Meet With Pope on Climate Change
By  Associated Press
Updated at 12:49 PM PDT on Friday, Jul 10, 2015
Published at 11:18 AM PDT on Jul 10, 2015

California Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday that he will travel to Vatican City later this month to discuss climate change and modern slavery with dignitaries including Pope Francis as the governor seeks to burnish his legacy as a climate change activist.

Brown, a former Jesuit seminarian, plans to attend a two-day event starting July 21 hosted by the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences.

The focus is on two issues highlighted in the pope's recent teaching document, called an encyclical, in which he chastised international lawmakers for failing to adopt effective, long-term policies that would protect the environment and help those who suffer most from global warming.
...

It comes on the heels of his address this week to the Climate Summit of the Americas in Toronto, Canada, where he warned that the world is on a collision course with fossil fuels, and is part of a broader effort by Brown in his final term as governor to be lead on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

A Brown-sponsored bill pending in the state Legislature would set what the administration calls the most aggressive carbon reduction benchmark in North America. California aims to boost statewide renewable electricity use to 50 percent, have drivers use half as much gasoline and make buildings twice as efficient under the proposal.
...

The Vatican event will be attended by the pope, representatives of the United Nations and mayors and governors from around the world, the governor's office said.

The meeting of local and regional officials comes as national governments attempt to reach an agreement to reduce emissions before they gather in Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December.

Gov. Brown Talks To KCAL9 About Bill That Would Mandate Reduction In Gas Usage
July 16, 2015 10:26 PM

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  — As Gov. Jerry Brown prepares to travel to Rome next week for an international climate conference, the debate over a bill aimed at reducing gas usage in California is heating up.

Brown fully supports SB-350, which would mandate a 50-percent cutback in California’s gas usage in the next 15 years, arguing that it’s a prime factor in global warming.

...
“We think this is reckless legislation and one that people certainly need to be aware of because it’ll impact every single motorist in the state of California,” Tupper Hull of the Western States Petroleum Association said via Skype.

Critics charge the bill provides no specific plan to achieve the massive cutback in gas usage. That would be left up to the California Air Resources Board, which those critics, like the oil industry say, would have no limits on what it could mandate.

...

The bill appears to be well on its way to passage having already cleared the state Senate and some Assembly committees, but the debate over how to cut in half California’s dependency on gas by 2030 is possibly just beginning.
...

Pope Francis Appoints Population Control Extremist to Vatican Post
A scientist who believes the world is overpopulated by 6 billion people has been appointed by Pope Francis to the Pontifical Academy of Science.
by Austin Ruse 17 Jun 2015

The Holy See Press office made the announcement today that besides being one of four official presenters of the Pope’s controversial encyclical on the environment Thursday in Vatican City, Hans Joachim Schellnhuber is to join 80 other scientists who are official advisers to the Vatican on scientific matters.

As Breitbart News reported last week, Schellnhuber said in a 2009 speech at the Copenhagen Climate Conference that global warming would devastate Earth’s population and “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something — namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.”

Understand that the Jesuits wish to see a failure of the Protestant experiment (the USA fyi) and do love burning at the stake of the heretics.

Planned Parenthood abortion numbers rise, other services fall
 By Adelaide Darling

Washington D.C., Jan 13, 2013 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A Planned Parenthood report showing an increase in abortions and decrease in other health services is leading to questions over the federal funding that the organization receives.
 
“While government subsidies to Planned Parenthood have reached an all time high,” Marjoirie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List said in a Jan. 7 statement, “so too has the number of lives ended by this profit-driven abortion business.”
 
Destroying nearly one million children in three years is not health care and does not reflect a concern for vulnerable women and girls,” she added. “As Planned Parenthood’s funding goes up, abortions increase and real health services for women go down.”
 
The largest provider of abortions in the U.S., Planned Parenthood faced staunch opposition in 2012, with several states working to limit its funding and numerous lawsuits launched across the country on charges of fraud, extortion and failure to report malpractice.
 
The organization recently released its 2011-2012 annual report, which showed a rise in the number of abortions performed for the first time in two decades, as well as a record amount of government funding.
 
The report indicated that Planned Parenthood performed a record-high 333,964 abortions during 2011.
 

http://www.factcheck.org/2007/12/abortions-comparing-catholic-and-protestant-women/
...
The survey, the latest conducted by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, was completed by more than 10,000 women
...
The institute found that more Protestant women obtained abortions than Catholics:

Forty-three percent of women over age 17 in the 2000-2001 survey said they were Protestant, while
27 percent said they were Catholic.
the remaining 22 percent said they had no religious affiliation [ probably from non-catholic Christian parents) so that would make 65 percent of all abortions by Non-Catholics ][/color]
Those who said they were Jewish were too small in number for analysis and were grouped with the “other” category, Jones says.
...

But Catholics were more likely to get an abortion:

The abortion rate for Catholic women was 22 per 1,000 women;
the rate for Protestants was 18 per 1,000 women, according to study author Rachel K. Jones.

Catholic Senators Blasted for Backing Tax-Funded International Abortions
 by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
September 24, 2007

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A group of sixteen Catholic senators is under fire for voting to make taxpayers fund groups that perform and promote abortions in other countries. While opposing the views of their church on abortion is one concern, Rev. Thomas Euteneuer says making Americans promote abortion is quite another...

Two weeks ago, as LifeNews.com previously reported, the Senate voted 53-41 to overturn a policy President Bush instituted on his first day in office in 2001 that protects taxpayers from funding international abortions

A contingent of Catholic senators were among the 53 voting for the pro-abortion amendment -- a group Euteneuer, the head of Human Life International, calls the "gang of 16."

"For the most part it's the usual suspects who claim to be Catholic while their consistent pro-abortion votes amount to a betrayal of the Catholic faith," he told LifeNews.com, saying he expected them to vote to promote abortion.

...
The group of Catholic senators voting to fund international abortions includes Robert Casey, Jr. (D-PA), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Ted Kennedy (D-MA), John Kerry (D-MA), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Susan Collins (R-ME),Robert Menendez (D-NJ),  Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Ken Salazar (D-CO), Tom Harkin (D-IA), Richard Durbin (D-IL), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Jack Reed (D-RI), Christopher Dodd (D-CT), Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

President Bush has already promised he would veto the bill if it nullified his abortion policy.

Deirdre McQuade, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told LifeNews.com she appreciated the president's willingness to veto the bill over the provision to fund abortions.

Rescission of the Mexico City Policy
On January 23, 2009, President Obama rescinded the Mexico City Policy


The Mexico City Policy had required foreign nongovernmental organizations to certify that they will not perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning using funds generated from any source as a condition for receiving USAID family planning assistance

The Mexico City Policy had been in effect from 1985 until 1993, when it was rescinded by President Clinton.  President Bush reinstated the policy in 2001, and it had remained in place since that time.  In rescinding the policy, President Obama directed USAID to immediately waive the policy’s conditions in any current grants; notify current grantees, as soon as possible, that these conditions have been waived; and immediately cease imposing these conditions in any future grants.

Pope to deliver speech on Independence Mall
Wednesday, August 19, 2015 06:02PM

CENTER CITY (WPVI) --
 Much of the focus of the upcoming papal visit has been on Sunday's Mass on the parkway September 27th. But the pope will first be on Independence Mall on Saturday to give a highly-anticipated speech.

Historic Independence Hall is the birthplace of this nation, and it will provide the backdrop for Pope Francis on the afternoon of Saturday, September 26th.

It will be there, on a relatively small stage, where the pope will give something of a policy speech.

Bob Ciaruffoli from the World Meeting of Families explains, "It is not a religious service. It's the pope, the Holy Father, speaking about his feelings on issues that are important to him."

...

http://www.ushistory.org/tour/independence-hall.htm

Construction of the Pennsylvania State House, which came to be known as Independence Hall, began in 1732. It was a symbol of the nation to come. At the time it was the most ambitious public building in the thirteen colonies. The Provincial government paid for construction as they went along, so it was finished piecemeal. It wasn't until 1753, 21 years after the groundbreaking, before it was completed.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN COLONIAL PENNSYLVANIA
BY SISTER BLANCHE MARIE
Convent of St. Elizabeth, Convent, New Jersey
...

The Roman Catholics were not numerous in any colony. Even in Maryland they formed less than one-half of the total population. Too few of them found shelter in Pennsylvania because they could not take part in political life since they were unable to take the oaths required by the English government. In 1757 Lord Loudon reported that there were approximately 1,365 Catholics in Pennsylvania.
Yet, small as was their number, the colonists feared them as intensely as did the people of England. Out of this jealousy and suspicion grew an opposition and oppression which, as often happens, gave impetus to the movement it was intended to impede.

It has been said-you may accept it or not-that the rising spirit of nationalism made the English Protestants resent the assumption on the part of the Pope that he had any right to determine the relations of Englishmen to their rulers. Yet nationalism was not a Protestant product. How account for the loyalty of the Roman Catholics of Maryland and Pennsylvania throughout the French and Indian War, and their fixed attachment to the cause of independence, except by ascribing it to a memorable pride of race and spirit of patriotism?

Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

“World leaders have an unprecedented opportunity this year to shift the world onto a path of inclusive, sustainable and resilient development" - Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator, January 2015.

...
What is the post-2015 sustainable development agenda?

The new post-2015 development agenda builds on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty targets that the world committed to achieving by 2015. Enormous progress has been made on the MDGs, showing the value of a unifying agenda underpinned by goals and targets. Yet despite this success, the indignity of poverty has not been ended for all.

The members of the United Nations are now in the process of defining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of a new agenda to finish the job of the MDGs, and leave no one behind. 

This agenda will be adopted by Member States at the Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.

What are the proposed SDGs?

1.End poverty in all its forms everywhere
2.End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture
3.Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
4.Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
5.Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
6.Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
7.Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
8.Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all
9.Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and foster innovation
10.Reduce inequality within and among countries
11.Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
12.Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
13.Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (taking note of agreements made by the UNFCCC forum)
14.Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
15.Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification and halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss
16.Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
17.Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development

Pope Francis to Address the United Nations General Assembly

On Thursday, September 25th, 2015 at 8:30 a.m, Pope Francis will formally address the United Nations General Assembly in New York City.

With the assembly celebrating its 70th anniversary, the attendance and address of Pope Francis are guaranteed to make it a special one. This year’s assembly will also involve huge decisions for its members concerning sustainable development, climate change and much more.

In addition to Pope Francis’ address to the assembly he will also have bilateral meetings with the Secretary-General and the President of the General Assembly, and participate in a town hall gathering with United Nations staff.

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945. There are 193 Member States, and the purpose is to take action on the issues that are confronting humanity in the 21st century. Pope Paul VI spoke to the General Assembly in 1965, when he visited. Pope John Paul II addressed them twice – saying that he came as a witness to human dignity.

In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI also spoke to the United Nations.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Focus shifts to shared goals with Obama as papal visit nears
Aug 27, 3:13 AM (ET)
By JOSH LEDERMAN

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sweeping into office in 2009, President Barack Obama captured near rock-star status around the world among millions who saw him as the embodiment of a new sense of social purpose. Now, that baton has largely been passed to Pope Francis, whose visit to the White House next month will put his common cause with Obama on vivid display.

Obama has made no secret of his affection for the outspoken pope, calling him a "transformative leader" whose influence has transcended the Roman Catholic community. The pope has embraced many of the issues Obama has sought to advance, including global warming, poverty and diplomacy with Iran and Cuba.

Vice President Joe Biden, a Catholic, said the pope's Sept. 23 visit will mark an important moment not only for Catholics but for all Americans.

"Pope Francis has breathed new life into what I believe is the central mission of our faith: Catholic social doctrine," Biden said in a statement to The Associated Press. Invoking key elements of Obama's agenda, Biden added that Francis "has become a moral rudder for the world on some of the most important issues of our time, from inequality to climate change."

Eyring is poised to address the Vatican conference Tuesday at 8 a.m. MST.

While LDS leaders have met key Catholic officials in the past, and a couple of Mormon apostles previously attended a papal prayer service, the Francis-Eyring exchange is thought to be the highest-level encounter between the Utah-based faith and the world's largest Christian denomination.

Satanic Child Sacrificing Rituals First Reported At Vatican And Now At LDS Temple In Salt Lake City
2006 02 15
By Greg Szymanski
...
"I am not anti-Mormon or anti any other religion, but just feel the corruption goes so deep into the hierarchy, the truth about the connections needs to be exposed before it's too late for America," said Ott who recently appeared on Greg Szymanski's radio show, The Investigative Journal.

A audio version of Ott's entire two-hour interview, exposing top level LDS affiliation with Masonic and less than honest U.S. government-compromised policy makers, can be found under The Investigative Journal archives page at www.rbnlive.com

And the research in his upcoming book, Free At Last, the subject of the radio interview, deals with LDS hierarchy links to the Knights of Malta, Freemasons, Jesuits, the Bush crime family and other top U.S. government officials, including the former Utah Governor and present U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Director, Michael O. Leavitt.

Besides rampant corruption in the LDS church and U.S. government, Ott also feels the hierarchies of other major religions, including Catholicism and Judaism, unknown to the general church-going public, have been infiltrated by satanic cult influences.

These satanic influences, claims Ott, is led by the Jesuits, Freemasons, Illuminati, the Knights of Malta and others, is leading America into a secret fascist state - their government of choice -- with the help of these corrupted officials and religious leaders at the core of the illegal Iraqi war and the contrived war on terror.

"Don't let anybody fool you. Satan exists. I have seen it for my own eyes when I was near death in 1987 and these evil people controlling the masses from high level positions are part of this satanic quest to destroy America using a policy of war and genocide," said Ott, who has a PhD in nutrition and runs a natural-based mineral company in order to instill good health and nutrition by natural methods.

Francis announces new global jubilee, the Holy Year of Mercy
by Joshua J. McElwee    |  Mar. 13, 2015

Symbolically calling on the entire global Roman Catholic church to take up his papacy's central message of compassion and pardon, Pope Francis on Friday announced that he is convoking a jubilee year to be called the Holy Year of Mercy.
 
Saying he has "thought often about how the church can make more evident its mission of being a witness of mercy," the pope announced the new jubilee year during a Lenten penitential service in St. Peter's Basilica.

"I am convinced that the whole church -- that has much need to receive mercy because we are sinners — will find in this jubilee the joy to rediscover and render fruitful the mercy of God, with which we are all called to give consolation to every man and woman of our time," Francis said in announcing the year.

"Let us not forget that God pardons and God pardons always," the pope continued. "Let us never tire of asking for forgiveness."

"We entrust it as of now to the Mother of Mercy, because she looks to us with her gaze and watches over our way," Francis said. "Our penitential way, our way of open hearts, during a year to receive the indulgence of God, to receive the mercy of God."

Pope Francis Tells Priests to Pardon Women Who Have Abortions
9/1/2015

Vatican City (AFP) – Pope Francis on Tuesday called on priests to pardon women who have abortions, and the doctors who perform them, during the upcoming Jubilee year — overruling hardline traditionalists within the Catholic Church.

“I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it,” he said.

In a message outlining special measures for the Jubilee, Francis said he knew that while “the tragedy of abortion is experienced by some with a superficial awareness… many others… believe that they have no other option”.

Pope Francis will celebrate Mass in Spanish in Washington, D.C., later this month in a bow to the large Hispanic population in the United States.

Cardinal Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington, D.C., said the Mass, to be held on September 23 at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, will be in Spanish in “recognition of how large the Hispanic population in the United States is,” says the Washington Examiner.

“And he’s coming as the first pope from the New World and the predominant language in this hemisphere is Spanish,” added Wuerl, stating that non-Hispanics will be given translations on jumbotrons.

Raúl Castro Says Pope Francis Could Inspire Him to Return to the Church 
By Daniel Politi


Pope Francis talks with Cuban President Raul Castro during a private audience at the Vatican on May 10, 2015.

Castro and his brother, Fidel Castro, were both baptized Roman Catholic but most Church activities stopped after the revolution, notes the BBC. Francis is now scheduled to go to the island in September, becoming the third pope to do so. The island began relaxing its religious restrictions in 1996 after Fidel went to the Vatican to visit Pope John Paull II, who went to Cuba two years later. Pope Benedict XVI also visited Cuba in 2012. “I am from the Cuban Communist Party, that doesn’t allow believers, but now we are allowing it,” Castro said during a Sunday news conference, according to the New York Times. “It’s an important step.”

Even before the triumph of the Revolution, Castro and his gang were prone to murder those who disagreed with them.

In the photo below, taken while still in the Sierra Maestra mountains, Fidel Castro's brother, Raul, is seen getting ready to shoot a young rebel soldier who disobeyed orders.


And more than fifty years after the above photo was taken, Castro and his gang of murderers continue to send to the firing squad, those Cubans who oppose his betrayal of the Revolution.


The Cuban Memorial displayed at Tamiami Park, Miami, Florida:
Each cross bears the name of a victim of Castro's genocide against the Cuban people

Why is the entire World blind to a half century of Castro's Crimes?
Why is it that very few people seem to care about Castro's genocide against the Cuban people?

Pope suggests Trump 'is not Christian'
By Daniel Burke, CNN Religion Editor
Updated 3:45 PM ET, Thu February 18, 2016 | Video Source: CNN

(CNN)—Thrusting himself into the combative 2016 presidential campaign, Pope Francis said Thursday that GOP front-runner Donald Trump "is not Christian" if he calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants and pledges to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

The Pope, who was traveling back to Rome from Mexico, where he urged the United States to address the "humanitarian crisis" on its southern border, did not tell American Catholics not to vote for Trump.

But Francis left little doubt where he stood on the polarizing issue of immigration reform.

"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel," the Pope told journalists who asked his opinion on Trump's proposals to halt illegal immigration.

Trump immediately fired back, calling Francis' comments "disgraceful."

Pope Francis Likens Jesus to ISIS, Says Muslims Must Breed With Europeans
Francis claims ISIS similar to Jesus sending his disciples to all nations
Kit Daniels - May 19, 2016

In a shocking interview, Pope Francis likened Jesus Christ to ISIS and said Muslim migrants must breed with Europeans to counter “declining birth rates.”


“Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam,” he told French newspaper La Croix. “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam, however, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

Pope Francis says Christians should apologise to gay people

The pontiff says Church teachings dictate that gay people should not be discriminated against, but respected

Pope Francis said on Sunday that Christians and the Roman Catholic Church should seek forgiveness from gay people for the way they had treated them.

In an hour-long conversation with reporters on the plane taking him back to Rome from Armenia, the pontiff was asked if he agreed with recent comments by a German Roman Catholic cardinal that the Church should apologise to gay people.

The pope recalled Church teachings, saying: “[Gay people] should not be discriminated against. They should be respected, accompanied pastorally

“I think that the Church not only should apologise ... to a gay person whom it offended but it must also apologise to the poor as well, to the women who have been exploited, to children who have been exploited by (being forced to) work. It must apologise for having blessed so many weapons.”

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (AP) -- The Western district of the Methodist church has elected an openly gay bishop despite the denomination's ban on same-sex relationships.

The Rev. Karen Oliveto was elected late Friday night at a meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona, of the church's Western Jurisdiction. Oliveto is pastor of Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. She is the first openly gay bishop in the 12.7 million-member denomination.

Sorry, but social injustice has nothing to do with ISIS . Here he morally equates Bad Catholics with ISIS . wow
So did he make a deal with the Saudis?  Of course since he is also a Jesuit, he knows all about religious terrorism.

Pope Francis defends Muslims and blasts 'Islam is NOT terrorism'

POPE Francis said yesterday it was wrong to identify Islam with terrorism and that social injustice and idolatry of money were among the prime causes of terrorism.
PUBLISHED:  09:47, Mon, Aug 1, 2016    | UPDATED: 10:09, Mon, Aug 1, 2016

Speaking aboard the plane taking him back to Rome after a five-day trip to Poland, he said: “I think it is not right to identify Islam with terrorism.

“It is not right and it is not true.”

Francis was responding to a question about the killing on July 26 of an 85-year-old Roman Catholic priest by knife-wielding attackers who burst into a church service in western France, forced the priest to his knees and slit his throat.

The attack was claimed by ISIS.

He said: “I think that in nearly all religions there is always a small fundamentalist group."

He then added: “We have them,” referring to Catholicism.

The Pope continued: “I don’t like to talk about Islamic violence because every day when I look at the papers I see violence here in Italy - someone killing his girlfriend, someone killing his mother-in-law. These are baptised Catholics.

Cremation of Care ? = Care of Creation

http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/09/01/pope-francis-global-warming-sin-man-can-atone-recycling-car-pooling/
Pope Francis: Global Warming a ‘Sin,’ Man Can Atone by Recycling and ‘Car-Pooling’

In his message for the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” Thursday, Pope Francis said that human-induced global warming, as well as a loss of biodiversity are “sins” against God, which must be atoned for by planting trees, avoiding the use of plastic and paper and “separating refuse.”
“Global warming continues, due in part to human activity,” Francis said, adding that “2015 was the warmest year on record, and 2016 will likely be warmer still.”

“This is leading to ever more severe droughts, floods, fires and extreme weather events. Climate change is also contributing to the heart-rending refugee crisis. The world’s poor, though least responsible for climate change, are most vulnerable and already suffering its impact,” he wrote.

Repeatedly citing the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who has “courageously and prophetically continued to point out our sins against creation,” Francis made his own a new list of such environmental sins, which include pollution, global warming and deforestation.

...

In his message, the Pope also applauded “a growing global political consensus” regarding the environment, praising the adoption of “Sustainable Development Goals” as well as last December’s Paris Agreement on climate change, “which set the demanding yet fundamental goal of halting the rise of the global temperature.”

Apparently the pontiff’s prayers have already been heard, since scientists are now forecasting that 2017 will be a cooler year than 2016.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Vatican's Finance Chief, Cardinal Pell, Charged With Multiple Sex Assaults

The Vatican's finance chief, Australia's highest ranking Roman Catholic and one of Pope Francis' most senior advisors, Cardinal George Pell, has been charged with multiple sex offenses by Australian police in the latest blow to the Vatican’s attempts to put decades of child sex abuse scandals behind it.

"Cardinal Pell is facing multiple charges in respect of historic sexual offenses," Victoria state police deputy commissioner Shane Patton said, following a police investigation that followed the same processes and procedures applied in other sex abuse cases. Cardinal Pell has been summoned to appear in court in Melbourne on July 18 to face the charges, which relate to complaints made by more than one person, according to the FT. To attend the hearing the 76-year-old would have to return to Australia from Rome, where he has been tasked by the Pope with cleaning up the Vatican’s finances.

There might be up to 10 alleged victims, Australian news website News.com.au reports, adding that they were minors at the time of the alleged assaults and are now aged from their late 20s to their early 50s. The allegations are believed to stretch from the time that Pell was a priest in the Australian town of Ballarat to when he was Archbishop of Melbourne. It is alleged that the cardinal groomed boys at a swimming pool in Ballarat in the 1970s and committed sexual assaults at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne, according to The Australian.

The Pope’s Pedophile?
By Andrew Sullivan

Well into Pope Francis’s pontificate, one of his closest aides, the third-highest official in the Catholic Church, Cardinal George Pell, has now been credibly accused of several acts of sexual assault, including one of rape. Australian police have concluded that the evidence they have is sufficient to move forward, even in cases that happened long ago.
...

. A cloud has hung over Pell since he was an Episcopal vicar in a parish in the 1970s that has been described as a “pedophile’s paradise and a child’s nightmare.” A full 15 years ago, Pell was accused of molesting a 12-year-old boy but when the church investigated, a retired Supreme Court justice found that there wasn’t enough evidence, even though the victim appeared to be “speaking honestly from actual recollection.” A year later, Pope John Paul II made Pell a cardinal. Several new alleged victims spoke out in a book published only last month.
...
In 2015, Australia’s Channel 9 ran a 60 Minutes segment that can only be called horrifying. In it, one of Francis’s own appointees to investigate sex abuse, Peter Saunders, described Pell’s record on sexual abuse as “almost sociopathic.”
