This is how Pope Francis weaseled out of saying whom he supported in America’s 2016 presidential election.

Pope: ‘The People Are Sovereign’

He was caught between a rock and a hard place. If he endorsed Hillary Clinton, he was endorsing the Abortion Queen. And he couldn’t back Trump: Pope Francis doesn’t think the USA should have a border.

So he took refuge in “The people are sovereign–”

Not that he believes it for a minute.

Pope Francis made some trouble for himself in 2016 when he ducked the question of which candidate he supported for president of the United States, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Caught between a rock and a hard place, he prevaricated.

Pope: ‘The People Are Sovereign’

The whole sum of his actions and words shouts from the housetops that he doesn’t believe for one New York minute that “the people are sovereign.” It would be hard to find someone who believes it less.

Don’t you wish someone would ask him which candidate he favors, this time out? Let’s see him wriggle off this hot spot. Come to think of it, I don’t think anyone has asked him that. So much for “journalism.”

Anybody can be wrong, but nobody has to be a hypocrite.

Pope Francis I, asked which American presidential candidate he favored, dodged all around the issue. Well, he had to, didn’t he? He can’t endorse Hillary Clinton without endorsing abortion; and, as he would like to see America’s national borders erased, he won’t support Donald Trump. So he bobbed and weaved and finally came up with this:

“The [American] people are sovereign.” ( https://www.yahoo.com/news/study-pray-vote-pope-tells-americans-ahead-elections-221531538.html )

Aside from the fact that only God is sovereign–and only God is infallible, for that matter; but we don’t want to rub it in–here we have the Pope glibly saying a thing he doesn’t believe for one cotton-pickin’ minute.

If “the people are sovereign,” how come we’re not allowed to enforce our nation’s borders?

If “the people are sovereign,” how come the Pope chimes in with the Climate Change crowd to wipe out our freedoms ’cause it’s gotta be done to Save the Planet?

If “the people are sovereign,” how come our immigration laws don’t matter?

If “the people are sovereign,” how come any little bunch of judges can order massive changes in our lives and there’s nothing we can do about it?

Pope Francis I is one of the world’s biggest offenders when it comes to trying to set up all-powerful bureaucracies to take control of every detail of our lives.

In trying to weasel out of one embarrassing question, he only stumbled face-first into another.
