Franciss new encyclical reads like a UN mission statement.
To celebrate the memory of Saint Francis of Assisi, to whom his pontificate is consecrated, Pope Francis has honored us with a long encyclical entitled Fratelli Tutti, or All Brothers. I doubt that this text will become a bestseller among the faithful, though all Catholics are urged to pay heed to such pronouncements. For those who, like me, are not Catholic, these texts are still worth analyzing as reflections of the spirit of the times and the intellectual atmosphere at the Vatican.
Fratelli Tutti, unsurprisingly, confirms the popes solid positioning on the left as an ecologist and anti-capitalist, a stance rooted in the revolutionary doctrines of his Argentine youth among the Jesuits of Buenos Airesfellow travelers of Liberation Theology and hostile to the economic liberalism favored by military dictators. Times have changed, and the poverty that rightly haunts Pope Francis has massively diminished around the world thanks to globalization, free trade, the market economy, and the scientific revolution in agriculture (GMO soybeans in Argentina, for example). The encyclical takes no account of this progress but presses on in the fight with a largely imaginary enemy that the pope, like all leftist intellectuals, calls neoliberalism.
This is the enemy to be slain, according to Fratelli Tutti; but it is not defined, no doubt because it does not exist. ...

that’s because there’s no trees left b/c of global warming

Lucifer more like.
What used to be a joke rhetorical question is now a legitimate concern.
No, he’s a Communist.
When I go to Mass, I try to focus on the liturgy of Word and the liturgy of Eucharist. I try not to make the surroundings (homily, choir, crying babies or archdiocese policies) be the focal point, but it is difficult
He’s hijacked the world’s oldest Christian faith and turned it into his own personal Left-wing political party.
This is a secular pope who is more worldly 'woke' and temmporal, than religious and spiritual.
While channel surfing, I happened on on EWTN (Catholic channel) reference to Saul Alinski, called "A Wolf in Sheeps Clothing"
which I found most interesting, interesting, and intriguing .
"An exposé of the lies and deception spun by 60's radical, Saul Alinsky.
His political tactics and theories espoused social justice,
but carried an agenda that threatened core beliefs of Christianity and the Church."
Is the official side of the Catholic church still Catholic? How did we get a Satanic Pope anyway?
The white smoke from the chimney was just some Swiss Guards blowing a doobie and the cardinals, weary of deliberations, just went with it.
I am ready for the new pope, as are most Catholics.
Well...that does explain it.
He’ s certainly not Catholic but an avowed communist.
Time for a hot toddy at bedtime.
