Pope Francis recognizes ‘State of Palestine’

The Vatican has recognized the ‘State of Palestine”

 

I think on this one, I might just sit back and I’m just going to let the article speak for itself for awhile – I have my own thoughts on this but I want to hear others first – so having said that…. unleash the comments.

And oh, Do try to stay on topic on this one folks…..

    Hmmmm….so the Pope opens his pie-hole, and proceeds to stab Isreal in the back. Okay, I won’t go so far as to proclaim him the “anti-christ”…but perhaps he is a first cousin?

    This ain’t the Catholic Church I was born and raised in. And the irony of it all, with the current direction this putz is taking it, I may actually be allowed to receive the sacraments again (Having been divorced, that pretty much takes me out of the running for receiving communion, at least for as long as either my ex is still alive, and or my current spouse as well. Having said that (and I wish neither lady any ill-will, was just stating fact) I would rather adhere to “traditional’/orthodox teachings regarding same, then to partake in what the current Catholic Confederacy of Dunces, is doing to the Holy Mother Church. And that goes for their stumbling about in the arena of international politics as well.

    Oh, and this wouldn’t be akin to what the white voters have done over the past two presidential elections (assuaging white guilt, by electing Obambi)….perhaps we should or could call it “Catholic/Christian CrusaiderGuilt”?

    I, for one, don’t feel the least bit guilty about the Crusades. In fact, once ISIS mounts an attack on Rome-as they have sworn to do-I hope the Pope thinks about calling another one.
    With all the so-called “migrants” being taken in by Italy, methinks it’s only a matter of time until they make good on their threat.

    I find it hard to believe that the Pope is so ignorant of both history, ala the reason for the Crusades, as well as daily world events clearly showing the savagery and intent of Islamofascism. He would have loved Yasser.

    It will be interesting when the muslims overrun Italy, and whether the people in charge respects the Vatican’s borders.

    Other than that, the Catholic Church left me a LONG time ago.

    Child molesters, SWJ’s, and leftist do-nothings should have nothing to do with religion.

    You’d think the Catholic church would’ve learned from America’s mistake: affirmative action is a shitty way to choose a leader (or a good way to choose a shitty leader, either way.), but no. Even the greedy, corrupt, and randy popes of the late middle ages and Renaissance would think this guy’s a disgrace.

    We must remember the pope is a peasant. Period. Will he now insist the Palastinians recognize Israel’s right to exist!? To ask the question is to answer it.
    It’s not so much that he is a socialist-progressive; he simply is not very bright. The real danger here is that his advisors are most definitely left-wing little whores of Babylon.. They are the ones prodding the pope to promote the pagan worship of global warming, population control, eventual gay marriage tolerance, etc.. This is attested by the fact that the pope knows nothing of science and will pull a reverse-Gallalio, coming down on the side of paganism. It is a frightening development, but consider the number of dunces that have been popes in history.
    I admire the Church and might possibly convert some day. I think some of you might agree that one more ignorant pope, though disappointing, won’t change history. It might fulfill it.
    I have heard some grumblings that the cardinals won’t make this mistake again.

    *sigh* We’ve survived bad popes in the past. We’ll survive this one too.

    Having been born and raised about 160 miles from where this particular Pope is from, and knowing the culture he was raised in, please do not be surprised if he acts like a populist driven social justice denizen, because that is what he is, pure and simple. And as we all know, ideology trumps reality, history, events and what is before your eyes.

    He will support Greens/Watermelons – check
    He will support redistribution of wealth – check
    He will support all grievance industry related issues – check
    He will be anti – capitalist (anti free market) – check
    He will promote/hire like minded – check

    So as someone said before, we will just have to ride this one out and if you notice he has remarkable similarities to one recent resident of the white house, one “attaboy” for ya.

    I just hope we as a nation survive and can reverse current trends.

    That is all – reported to you from the capital city of Peru this day of our lord, May 15th, 2015

    The current Pope is a South American Jesuit. These are the inventors of “Liberation Theology”. Marxists to the core.

    Yes, take 1 dull-witted peasant, manipulate using South American Jesuit handlers, throw in an ingratiate spoiled cry-baby USA president, sprinkle with the Castro brothers, and we’re in for a lot of fun!.
    The first to claim that communism collapsed were the communists because they knew it was untrue. They know they can keep going in the guise of internationale useful idiots all over the world and in academia.
    Its time for Catholics to start asking the dope some very specific questions. Being a bumbler, of course he will ask his managers to write out his responses, but it would be amusing to see him fumbling around…………..HAL?… HAL?
