"Tell Rush Limbaugh: We Support Pope Francis!" urges a petition which has already garnered almost 4,000 signatures on the website of Catholics in
Alliance for the Common Good. Catholics and non-Catholics alike were infuriated by Limbaugh's comments about Pope Francis on his radio show on Nov.
27, as the Pontiff has captured the hearts of many worldwide.
It is the spiritually blind that can’t understand the simple statements of the pope.
Clueless dogmatic anti-human so called “Christians” like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin lack the basic understanding of the very essence and
meaning of religion, in which the pope, even with all the flaws of the catholic church, is finally trying to get people to understand, and that is
that the simple message of love and empathy for the downtrodden amongst us is the lofty universal message of true religion that should be striven for
to attain in any legitimate religious philosophy and human society
On the show, Limbaugh said that the pope "doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to capitalism and socialism," and speculated that his
latest apostolic exhortation "Evangelii Gaudium," was overtly influenced by others who have "gotten to him." He claimed the document was "pure
Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope." He's not the only political conservative to take a dig at the pope and face the ire of his many fans.
Sarah Palin publicly apologized a few weeks ago for saying she was taken aback by some of his "liberal" statements, and was unsure that she could
trust media reports about him.
People so indoctrinated into political dogmatic infighting like Limbaugh and Palin can never distinguish between the message of charity, love and care
for the poor and what they pejoratively label as “liberalism” and “socialism.”
Anyone teaching or advocating the moderation of the culture of selfishness and greed is a socialist, Marxist, OR WORSE A LIBERAL.
Anyone reminding the world of opulent power and wealth, that there are millions of human beings starving in the world and living in poverty and
suffering--and that we should strive to eliminate that human tragedy--is a Marxist
That’s how far gone they are in their own political indoctrination
Reza Aslan, a religious scholar and author of "Zealot: The Life And Times of Jesus of Nazareth," succinctly responded to Limbaugh's comments by
saying in the Washington Post, "Somebody did get to Pope Francis. It was Jesus." He also cited Palin, writing, “These two paragons of the far
right – both of whom regularly invoke the teachings of Jesus to bolster their own political views – have suddenly turned their backs on the man
whose actual job description is to speak for Jesus." In response to Limbaugh's comments, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good started a
These so called Christians would label Jesus himself a Marxist if he were alive today, thereby in their own twisted view of reality the messiah would
be anathema to them.
In response to Limbaugh's comments, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good started a petition, writing: We are disturbed by Rush Limbaugh's
incendiary comments last Wednesday, November 27th about Pope Francis and are joining together with Catholics and other allies throughout the nation to
support the Holy Father. To call the Francis a proponent of "pure marxism" is both mean spirited and naive. Francis's critique of unrestrained
capitalism is in line with the Church's social teaching. His particular criticism of "trickle down economics" strengthens what Church authorities
have said for decades: any economic system which deprives the poor of their dignity has no place within a just society. Contrary to what Mr. Limbaugh
suggests, the Catholic Church isn't built on money, but on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. We call on Mr. Limbaugh to apologize and retract his
remarks. We urge other Church organizations and leaders--both ordained and lay--to also condemn Mr. Limbaugh's comments. We proudly stand with Pope
Francis as he provides prophetic leadership for the Catholic Church and the entire world.
As far as I am concerned people of ALL faiths and even atheists should get behind the pope and support him when he teaches such sublime human morals
that we all can follow and strive to attain, for these are universal truths and aspirations of the human heart.
