Skip to comments.Obama: I Admire Pope Francis' Inclusive Spirit
Posted on 10/03/2013 9:48:37 AM PDT by SkyPilot
President Barack Obama had warm words Wednesday for what he sees as Pope Francis' inclusive attitude in recent remarks urging the Roman Catholic church not to focus only on abortion or gays.
In an interview with CNBC on the shrill standoff between Republicans and Democrats that has produced the first partial US government shutdown in 17 years, Obama was asked about the Argentina-born pope's moderate tone.
"I have been hugely impressed with the pope's pronouncements. Not because of any particular issue, but-- you know, first of all, he seems somebody who-- lives out-- the teachings of Christ," Obama said.
Pope Francis seems to have an "incredible humility-- incredible sense of empathy to the least of these, to the poor. And he's also somebody who's, I think first and foremost, thinking about how to embrace people as opposed to push them away.
"That sense of love and unity-- seems to manifest itself in not just what he says, but also what he does. And, you know, for any religious leader -- that's a quality I admire," he stressed.

If Obama starts praising you - you know you’ve gone off in the WRONG direction.
Inclusive Spirit = see things the obama way...
Well, there you have it. Anytime a fellow can be admired by BO, he has got to be doing something right. That is true, isn’t it?
My thoughts exactly.
If Bammy’s for it, it’s wrong. If he’s opposed to it, it’s right.
Im surpised he didnt say” Like You Know”....etc...etc.
“he’s like....well you know like mmmmm my kind of pope dude!”
This only demonstrates again how shallow Mr. Obama really is.
He has only a biased, peripheral understanding of what is *pronounced* or discussed by ANY pope.
It is similar to his understanding of the American spirit, or the Constitution or to wise economics.
Much of this explains why he so ignorantly fell for Marxist ideology. Other factors probably include his dysfunctional family and his relationship (or lack thereof) with his own father and the absence of the Divine in his life.
Obama is confused on this
He sees the Man, and misses That which Dwells within
No different than us...We have people here that are atheists, communists, socialists, ....we can’t just kick them out either.
Wow, the Pope gets the endorsement of Obama...
Is that good?
0bamaCare was passed with massive bi-partisan support.
The homosexual child butcher likes this pope.
Doesn’t he ever shut up?
Doesn’t he ever shut up?
Truly, the boy-man Obama has no idea of What he speaks. The fella is lost in a fog of his own devising.
Will somebody please tell me how it is that here on FR, the greatest conservative anti-Obama site anywhere, we have the religious forum overrun by pro-Pope Francis Romanists, the RF basically a promotion platform for THEIR PRO-MARXIST JESUIT POPE WHO OBAMA ADMIRES FOR HIS “INCLUSIVE” PRO-MARXIST SPIRIT?
This on an anti-Marxist conservative site? Something doesn’t compute here.
On this thread, I expect we’ll get the typical fluff from the pro-Marxist Pope Francis apologists running roughshod on FR, Obama is wrong, their Pope cannot possibly be pro-Marxist, and other specious attempts to avoid the obvious.
