The Pope on Fundamentalism and Refugees

Pope: “No religion is immune from its own fundamentalism,” and fundamentalists “kill, destroy and defame”

pope Francis

Jihad Watch:

Where today do Christian fundamentalists “kill, destroy and defame”? Where are there mobs of Christian fundamentalists lynching innocent Muslims for perceived “blasphemy,” turning mosques into churches, and forcing Muslims to submit to them and pay them a special tax?

There is an escalating Muslim persecution of Christians that makes this moral equivalence at best, disastrously out of focus. At best. Do the suffering Christians not warrant any consideration at all? Any realistic discussion of what has happened and is happening to them?  more

25 Comments on The Pope on Fundamentalism and Refugees

  1. the pope is blind to the tenets of islam.

    go along to get a long?
    he’s another appeaser, coexist does not exist in islam.

    so, the pope doesn’t speak against evil?
    makes me wonder whose team he’s on.

  2. I have to agree with this pretend leader of the catholic church on this statement.

    for it will be laid at the feet of the surviving “fundamental” (read actual believers) Christians, with Christ leading them to rid this world of this unholy alliance of islam, communism and one world government’ers.

    no one else will ever have the balls or the understanding to do what needs to be done for the world.

  3. Although I have kids in Catholic school, we have abandoned the pews of the Catholic Church in favor of what my kids refer to as “rock n roll church” (a non-denominational, evangelical church). Yes, my family and I have given up the annual Catholic beerfest fundraisers and endless magazine sales and now conduct all sorts of frightening fundamentalist activities, such as singing, “How Great Thou Art” at the tops of our lungs, serving meals to the homeless and tutoring children from inner cities schools. Oh, the horror! I can see why this pope is afraid of us. Aren’t you scared, too? I have some very unchristian thoughts about this Marxist, ignorant joke of a pope, but I shall hold my tongue as best I can.

  4. Gee a progressive who is full of shit. Never seen that before. //s

    This Goddamned jackass will do as much damage to The Church as his little Marxist buddy in the White House will do to America.

  5. Ann Barnhardt on Pope Narcissus:

    Let me start with a positive comment. Remember, this is the best I could come up with:

    If we had gotten the pope we DESERVE, we would now have Pope Snoop Dogg.

    And thus ends the positivity.

    Francis, like his homeland of Argentina, is a total disaster. He has overseen the near-total destruction of the Church in Argentina. He hates and despises the Tridentine Mass, which is to say that he hates the Mass – let’s not mince words, and is a rabid persecutor of anyone in Argentina who shows ANY signs of tradition. A priest in Argentina literally risks the end of his career if he wears a cassock in public. He has forbidden the Tridentine Mass in Argentina, which is an act of direct disobedience, specifically against the papal decree Summorum Pontificum, but embraces horrific “charismatic” and “Superfun Rockband”-type liturgical sacrilege.

    Which brings us to his regard for the papacy, and the Church itself. He said yesterday in his bizarre little speech, again and again, that he was the Bishop of Rome, which is true, but in being the Bishop of Rome the pope is the head of the Universal Church, not just the city of Rome. Francis does not believe this, and even made a reference to the idea that the pope is “first among equals”. This means that he regards the Church as a mere loose confederacy, and also that he thinks the Church is, or should be, a democracy. The proof of this is, again, his blatant disobedience to Summorum Pontificum. He will never do anything to clean up the sodomite infiltrators in the Church outside of Rome because he doesn’t feel that the pope has any authority outside of Rome. Bottom line here: many bishops and archbishops have been kept in line over the past eight years because Benedict was relatively aggressive in booting out extremely bad bishops. Benedict was feared in a healthy way. This guy is basically the big green light to every Marxist-homosexualist to just go ahead and do whatever, because they know Francis will never remove them or even chastise them, because Francis doesn’t believe that the pope has any universal authority and is merely the bishop of the city of Rome proper – at least that is the excuse that will be given when nothing is done about abuses and heresies **that Francis is sympathetic towards.**

    BUT, like all insecure leaders who say that they reject authority and obedience, reports from Buenos Aires are that he is an iron-fisted totalitarian against traditionalists, precisely because he has no confidence in or respect for his own authority, and thus assumes that no one else does either, and thus wields power against his perceived enemies only from brute force. Again, this is TEXTBOOK 20th century Marxist worldview and psychology. It is also the diametrical opposite of the virtue of MEEKNESS, which is power under control.

    Next, he is an “ecu-maniac”, which is to say that he is in the “all religions are equal and can’t we all just get along” camp. In Buenos Aires he knelt before and received the “blessing” of a Superfun Rockband Church “pastor”, and even received “communion” from a Protestant. There are pictures floating around of that episode. This is terrifying. He clearly does not have a strong belief in or understanding of Our Lord, His Church, the Mass or the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist. But, as I have stated repeatedly, almost none of the men ordained in the 1960s, 70s or 80s do.

    Next, he’s a Jesuit. Now, I must disclose that I have a deep personal, seething, visceral hatred of Jesuits, but my hatred of them is a corollary to the fact that they long ago descended into truly evil heresies and apostasy. Jesuits, in addition to being a cult of sodomites who hate God, are also … wait for it … Marxists. Now Francis has in the past put up some token resistance to so-called “Liberation theology”, which is just Communist Totalitarianism in religious drag, but he is huge, huge, huge on “social justice”, which is merely code for Marxism. This guy’s worldview revolves around giving people free stuff because it’s nice, which as we have discussed is contrary to logic and reason, specifically in the subset of mathematics, and thus is contrary to Our Lord who is but FIRST the Logos, with the Divine Caritas (charity) proceeding out of the Logos. Bottom line, there will be zero positive assistance to the world from Francis with regards to the inevitable economic collapse. Not only will there be nothing helpful coming from him, he will almost certainly come out in favor of more debt, more “free stuff”, and more rhetoric about how people are “entitled” to physical and service commodities (which are someone else’s man-hours, remember) as “rights”.

    But Ann! He has gone on record against homosexual “marriage” and abortion!

    Wow. Is this really how far we have sunk? The Roman pontiff is on record as being against sodomy and killing babies and we cite this as proof of ORTHODOXY? Really? I wonder if he also believes in gravity. Does belief in gravity constitute a conservative worldview now?

    Benedict thought that between the “Natural Solution” (the passage of time yielding the death or retirement of the bad guys) and the appointments he was able to make over the last eight years that he had set up the College of Cardinals to elect a successor that was very much in the Ratzingerian camp. Benedict was wrong. Not only did they not elect a Ratzingerian, they elected the anti-Ratzinger. In the 2005 conclave Francis came in second to Ratzinger, which is to say that Francis was the “opposition”. In what must have Benedict’s mind reeling today, after eight years of purging and priming the College of Cardinals, the very men Ratzinger placed turned around and elected the anti-Ratzinger. This proves, as I have said all along, that playing prevent defense, namely the “natural solution” of waiting for the bad guys to die is UNSOUND. In war, you fix your bayonets, say your prayers, and you charge.

    Tridentine Mass-goers and clergy, this guy will be on the warpath against us at some point. Prepare. Brace. He may attempt to undo Summorum Pontificum either directly or through intense passive aggression. Any hopes of reconciling the good guys in the SSPX is now totally over. Beyond that, the splinter factions will now claim that “they were right”, and sadly even more schism will result, and more people will remain outside the Church. So sad.

    We got what we deserved, and probably better than we deserve. God’s chastisement of His people is sending them bad priests, bishops, and now, in all likelihood, a bad pope. What do you expect? Look around. The world is awash in staggering sin and blasphemy and no one will lift a finger to do anything about it. And, as my last essay on penance proved via my email box, no one is sorry or has any desire to make reparation to Our Lord for any of it. No one has the slightest comprehension of the notion of taking on the burden of guilt for sins that they didn’t directly commit, which blows my mind because that is LITERALLY the ENTIRE POINT of the Incarnation. The mind reels at the collective obtuseness needed to miss that glaring point.

    No one has the slightest comprehension of the idea of seeing Our Lord in agony and simply stepping over to Him and asking, “What can I do to help You? What can I do to make You feel better? Let me take some of Your burden. Let me go with You.”

    Nope. So long as we all leave Him alone in His Passion, He will leave us to our self-absorption and indifference.

    Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.

    Viva il Papa.

  6. Published in 2013. Ann Barnhardt, like yours truly is one of the few who recognized this menace right out of the gate for what he is.

  7. W.W.J.S.

    About the opulence that the Pope and his minions at the Vatican live in, while telling others to be helpful?


    About the Pope offering the equivalent of a “blue light special” to receive absolution for taking the life of an unborn child, if you are really sorry about it….this year only?


    About the Catholic Church…period.

  8. Christian fundamentalism: homeschooling, no birth control, read the Bible

    Muslim fundamentalism: beheadings, rape, female genital mutilation, kill all Jews.

    Yeah all fundamentalists are the same. Great point Pope

  9. From Wikipedia: García Cárcel estimates that the total number processed by the Inquisition throughout its history was approximately 150,000; applying the percentages of executions that appeared in the trials of 1560–1700—about 2%—the approximate total would be about 3,000 put to death. Nevertheless, it is likely that the toll was higher, keeping in mind the data provided by Dedieu and García Cárcel for the tribunals of Toledo and Valencia, respectively. It is likely that between 3,000 and 5,000 were executed

    So basically, about the same number as were killed on a single day: 9/11.

  10. Since the Catholic Church was the original Christian church (at least in the Western world), I suspect they might hold a similar view about Protestants.


  11. The Spanish Inquisition lasted officially from 1478 to 1834. Estimates of people executed (good estimates as they kept impeccable records) during this 350 years range from 2000 to 5000. In short, you’re a fucking idiot.

  12. This “so called” pope is a commie bastard that is doing the same thing to the Catholic Church that Obama is doing to AMERICA!

  13. JD Hasty -thanks for the Ann Barnhard info. I was born & raised a Catholic. I was even in the Knights of Columbus. But I couldn’t stomach any more of this Jesuit asshole’s reckless pronouncements and quit The Church after 55 years. I’m now a Southern Baptist.

    “Who am I to judge?” – You’re the Pope, you idiot.

    “Global Warming” – You’re wrong, you idiot.

    “Capitalism is evil” – You’re wrong, you idiot.
