What would Jesus say?
And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
“Both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the Lord.
Jesus would tell the Pope "You're a man, an imperfect, sinful man, (paraphrasing here) so STFU.”
There seems to be this ideology out there of people, on multiple sides, who seem to know what Jesus would have done or said in any given modern situation. I call BS on it all. The man was perfect, we are not and never will be.

So it's un-Christian to not rubber stamp approve whatever nominee Obama picks for the Supreme Court? Wow, just wow. I believe this just made the top ten worst posts ever on ATS.
When I see the blind and wretched state of men, when I survey the whole universe in its deadness, and man left to himself with no light, as though lost in this corner of the universe without knowing who put him there, what he has to do, or what will become of him when he dies, incapable of knowing anything, I am moved to terror, like a man transported in his sleep to some terrifying desert island, who wakes up quite lost, with no means of escape. Then I marvel that so wretched a state does not drive people to despair.
“Given the trends we’re seeing, we wouldn’t be surprised if dark money spent on direct advocacy [in the US 2016 election] hit half a billion dollars,” said Viveca Novak, the editorial director of the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. “Spending by these groups in the 2016 cycle is way ahead of previous cycles, and [dark money groups] are more integrated into campaigns than we’ve seen in the past.”
In 2012, the center has reported, dark money groups spent over $300m, of which more than 80% came from Republican-leaning outfits.
There are also a number of pro-Democratic nonprofits associated with party leaders and leadership-directed committees that make extensive use of dark money. David Brock, a one-time prominent critic of Hillary Clinton who now is a prominent supporter, is involved with several political organizations including nonprofits that don't have to disclose donors, and political action committees that do. They all seem to comingle legally.
The biggest dark money practitioners, however, have been the Chamber of Commerce and one of Republican strategist Karl Rove's political arms.
The Federal Election Commission could force these organizations, with their heavy campaign involvement, to register as political committees, requiring them to name their donors. But the FEC, almost from its inception 40 years ago, has been toothless.
There also is a risk that foreign money could be surreptitiously funneled into the presidential campaign because it wouldn't have to be publicly disclosed.

Jesus Christ would be totally rejected by these American Christians.
He couldn't be elected dog catcher let alone a Jurist
I have already quoted numerous versus in the Bible that denounces the kind of mentality these " Christians" have towards the poor
They'd call him a communist, socialist, or bleeding heart liberal
