Of course they do! They can sell whatever they want one way or another.

I don't remember any case like that, could you give me an example?
Thanks in advance.

Marxism infiltrated the Church some time ago. I saw this guy's nonsense for what it is as well. He is so in with the UN World Council of Churches.



well, the public, through internet news & blogs should help in drowning out the Pope's messages to the masses, question his reasoning and policies in leading his sheep/flock

here is still another article that mildly slams this propagator of false teaching:


...www.logosapologia.org...

It sure appears like Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Pope Francis) is a Marxist. The Pope said this about the European refugee problem:

“These poor people are fleeing war, hunger, but that is the tip of the iceberg.
Because underneath that is the cause; and the cause is a bad and unjust socioeconomic system.......
....... in the socioeconomic society, in politics, the person always has to be in the centre.
That is the dominant economic system nowadays, it has removed the person from the centre, placing the god money in its place, ...




,,,The pope argued the refugee problem is due to an unjust economic system and not supernatural evil
Robert Spencer – a vocal critic of Islam – takes Pope Francis’ socialist arguments and turns them on their ear with facts.
Spencer demonstrates that the pope even contradicts his own previous statements about refugees…
While Jesus was not a capitalist he was no Marxist:...


putting the person central, before either money or their soul is what Francis is telling the world... aw, go and bless the space aliens you are willing to baptise

Who here actually thinks Jesus would be turning his back on refugees or anyone or for that matter? It is disgusting that you all are turning the pope into the bad guy here for saying that we need to help people. That is what his religion preaches and he is practicing it, shocker.

a reply to: Sremmos80 I see the pope is a heretic now, only real Christians are those ones in America, maybe the next pope will be an American Christian with good republican values

Pretty much what is being said...

Saddening really, people just want to see a pope stand there and not preach I guess.

The state is your God, it does at is wishes with you, it houses you, feeds you, medicate you, you are owned by the state, just like a zoo owns the animal.

Your 2nd amendment is built on ideals, made by a primate.

And i really need to work on diplomacy


Hmmm. And who is in control of the state? Who is the God then?

He should lead by example, how many refuguees can Vatican city take in? How many could be housed in apostolic palace or the Vatican Basilica?

I'm all for the talk. Show the rest of the churches and the world how it's done. Why stop at words when he has resources and space to act?

I think they are supposed to be inspired by god to choose the best candidate, that, technically, can be any Catholic male.

Yo Jesus could turn water in to wine, and had the ideology of teaching a man to fish. That man could feed himself for life.

Not make threats.

Jesus' "ideology" was one of love. Care for those that need it. Love your neighbor. Help the desperate.

Not once in the Bible did I see a part where Jesus said "Well, I taught you how to fish. Don't ask for anything else, you lazy slackers".

Me thinks that a big bulk of the folx responding here are not reading the replies OR the information contained in the OP and the information provided via the link in the OP.

I see so many people using the same point "How many is the Vatican taking in", and never actually reading the other posts that mentioned many times how many and why... I see a good handful of people that don't even care what the OP has to say, they just want to pounce on the fact that there is a post about the pope.

Deny Ignorance.... For sure...

A couple of posts aren't even related to the topic.

(Face Palm)

For those that are on topic and contributed, I thank you. It's good to see your points.

Hello Stallion,
I do appreciate your thread, and yes "Papa" is different. I didn't expect he would survive this long being as radical as he is.
He brings to mind one of his predecessors "Pope John Paul the first", Albino Luciano who according to "conspiracy" theories was "removed" because of his very subtle but wide ranging revolt against the wealth of "The Church".
David Yallup wrote, as far as I am concerned, an excellent book on this case, "In Gods Name".

I recall back when I was much younger, after reading it, I questioned our clergy (I am catholic) and even our kind old bishop, repeatedly. The only answer I ever received was silence. Or at the best, "We don't discuss this"
I will never leave the church because of the stupidity of human beings, I must be, with others, the change or as you will the rock from within.
But I can't stand the hypocrisy and I point it out at all times, which makes me extremely unpopular.


Religious orders should NOT have a tax exemption.
I don't report my donations and thus I don't appear on the annual "tithe parade" . It is a disgusting practice heralding the rich, demeaning the very people we are called to serve. SERVE. Ups I went off topic, didn't I.
