Red Pope: Reality-Challenged

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” ( ).

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.

But good!

The Church of Global Warming

The Red Pope is at it again. Now, he says, new Roman Catholic priests are to be instructed to preach that “Climate Change”–called Global Warming when it isn’t snowing–is “real” and “caused by human activity.” After all, the Pontifical Academy of Sciences says so ( ).

That deserves a raspberry.

Confession ought to be a trip, from now on. “I have sinned… I used half a dozen pieces of toilet paper in one trip to the loo.” Why does this enterprise remind me of Starbuck’s abortive scheme, not too long ago, to nag customers about “racism” when they bought a cup of coffee?

Mr. Pope–when you and your globalist buddies start acting like you believe in man-made Climate Change, and give up your private jets and mansions in order to Save The Planet, then maybe some of us will believe it, too. For the time being, it still looks like just another way to grow the government.

Pope Threatens to Excommunicate God

Having just declared that Catholics ought to apologize to “gays” ( ), it only remains for Pope Francis I, aka Comrade Pope, to say that God ought to apologize, too.

If there were any truth to this story which I am making up to make a point, the Pope would chide God Almighty for “Creating us capable of all sorts of sexual pleasures, you name it, and then not letting us enjoy it! Like, how mean is that??? Saying the only sex you can have is within a marriage–a man and a woman, no less! How dreadfully uninclusive! I mean, really, God has got a lot to answer for! And He had better straighten out, like real soon, or I’m gonna excommunicate Him!”

Now it is true that sinners sin, and that we are all sinners, some tempted this way, others tempted another way. Our problem is never with the sinner who struggles, and on his own is just not strong enough to achieve righteousness–which applies to every single one of us.

Our problem is with those wicked individuals who declare that their sin is not a sin, the Bible is wrong, God is wrong, and you’d better join them in “celebrating” it, or else. It is not the sin that’s the problem, but the out-and-out rebellion against God’s plainly stated word.

But I think it would surprise me to hear that this Pope ever reads the Bible.

Say Bye-bye to Religious Liberty

Next step–church gets bulldozed for refusing to obey homosexuals

Should the government have the power to tell the church what to teach and what not to teach?

Hell, yeah. And that’s just what the “human rights” industry in Australia intends to do ( ).

In fairness it must be pointed out that some members of the government say this is going way, way too far and that the Tasmania Anti-Discrimination Law must be amended to keep far-out wackiness like this from happening.

You see, a single man who insists he is a woman–he’s also a Green Party candidate for Parliament, surprise, surprise–says church teaching offends him, so it must be changed. His target is the Roman Catholic Church, which earlier this year issued a pastoral letter entitled “Don’t Mess With Marriage.”

The church’s teachings on marriage, an institution ordained by God Himself, have remained the same for thousands of years.

Now they are to be changed because some lost soul demands it.

Here in America many individuals have been ruined, destroyed, not because of anything they did, but because they didn’t take part in a same-sex “wedding.”

Organized Sodomy has become powerful enough to do that. And it seeks more power still.

So far in Australia, attempts to rein in the “human rights” gang have been defeated by a coalition of left-wing members of Parliament, surprise, surprise.

Believe this: The secular tribe will never rest until the Christian religion is destroyed. That is their goal. They wish to remove Christianity as the biggest obstacle between them and total domination of the human race. Their pushes for “gay rights” and transgender nonsense are only tactics.

Had enough yet, folks? There’s more coming.

This is a judgment from God, but we have not yet learned to recognize it as such; and we are very, very far from the repentance that will save us.
