Ferme la grande bouche.
Pope Francis off-the-cuff has been a...how should I put this...it's been..... a bit of a freak show.
If there is any truth to the published reports, we certainly have a problem on our hands. At best imprudence and at worst, an individual who has absolutely no resect for the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church.
Let's review the week, shall we?
He's told children that being elected Pope is something to reject because it isn't a ministry that serves people. He's a people person.
Christ sure had some dumb ideas, I guess.
So much for his three years walking around teaching and curing...I'm assuming they were PEOPLE?
It begs the questions: Aren't the people who work at or visit the Vatican people? Aren't the people he visits in other countries people?
He seems to be confusing the Papacy with the Carmelites.
Somebody show him pictures of the 2000 years of Popes, will you?
Then, he said the gay prelates did pull a coup de tat at the Vatican, but he is too disorganized to know how to walk down the hall and fire them. He needs a team of people - at least one of whom inculturated his diocese with more homopromiscuity than a hot night in in July in Provincetown.
Yesterday, we learned that the Pope is wringing his hand in concern for the moonbats who sent him a spiritual bouquet of decades of the Rosary they said for him. They are people who never left the 1940s, says he.
Organizing people to say the Rosary and letting him know the intensity and power behind those prayers - that's something the sitting Pope tells anecdotes about so he and his audience can ROFLOL.
To him, they're as crazy as bedbugs, doing things that even don't exist anymore!! Why, they'er bad as the pagan women who take baths instead of praying!
Today, we read that he told his audience the CDF is pish posh. Yeah, that's right - pay no attention to the CDF. He wants to build a church that makes mistakes. Get it?
But here was the kicker: he's opting out of making the mistakes that bring consequences to his own backside:
Pray for me... that I make mistakes the least possible.
There is a reason why 2000 years of Popes icksnay on the spontaneous chatteray.
Saints preserve us!
I think we better start hunkering down and praying for the man. He is going to be under siege.
