Some years ago I was on the phone with a liberal, trying to convince him that public school “sex education” had gone a lot farther than he thought, as exemplified by a certain book used in the curriculum at many schools. His clever riposte was to deny the book existed. “But I have it right here on the table, right in front of me,” I said. No dice. “There’s no such book. You’re making it up.”
Lately I’ve noticed that the flat-out denial of reality is increasingly a feature of “progressive” discourse. Just a few days ago Pope Francis I, the Red Pope, demonstrated exactly what I mean by asserting that Muslim terrorism “does not exist” ( http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/pope-francis-says-muslim-terrorism-not-exist-asserts-climate-change-real/ ).
Well, all right, he doesn’t have time for trivial problems like people getting their heads blown off by the Allahu akbar crowd. He’s too busy trying to sell Climate Change as the greatest-ever excuse for growing government and making it more powerful. He warns us to remember “what happens when we deny science and disregard the voice of nature.”
Sheesh. What ever happened to “Thus saith the Lord”? But this guy has no time for that. He’s too busy listening to “our Sister Mother Earth.”
I’m not Catholic, but I grieve for the Roman Catholic Church, saddled with a man like this for its spiritual leader.
May the Lord rebuke him.
