Ok, they didn't exactly say the Pope was 'antiCatholic', but since there is no such word as 'conservative' in the realm of faithfulness to Catholic Doctrine, that is precisely what they meant.
Take a look for yourselves.
Church teaching is actually law. When you describe people who are required to obey law, there's no such thing as liberal or conservative. One either obeys laws or they violate them.
Driving 60 in a 30 mile an hour isn't liberal it violating laws. Selling crack pipes to children isn't liberal, its criminal.
When the mainstream media and people with agendas call Catholics "Conservatives", they people they are referring to are Catholics who practice their religion by doing everything within their power to live by Church Law. They are Catholics.
Catholics aren't Jews because Catholics don't practice Jewish laws.
Consequently, what HuffPo is trying to say isn't profoundly 'anti-conservative', he is 'anti' - the definition of which is 'against' - Catholics who faithfully adhere to the practice of their religion.
After six months of watching the show, I think that is an astute observation.
He doesn't like us.
The Pope himself uses an even more derogatory term for faithful Catholics than the mainstream press:
“I have never been a right-winger."
I wasn't too happy when Archbishop Chaput used the term, but at least he doesn't have a history of confusing our children in the public square.
Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn whether he likes faithful Catholics or he doesn't.
The Pope has a duty to ensure that our children get catechized in the tenets of our religion and he has just told us that is a practice he thinks should stop.
Faithful Catholics (who quite frankly are not exactly taking a shine to him either) are stepping up to say there's going to a lot of commotion.
We want to be catechized. We want our children to be catechized. We want our relatives, friends and everyone we love and care about to be catechized.
Here's what this Pope taught our children about the infallible teaching of Christ's Church:
“When the dialogue among the people and the bishops and the pope goes down this road and is genuine, then it is assisted by the Holy Spirit. … We should not even think, therefore, that ‘thinking with the church’ means only thinking with the hierarchy of the church.”
No matter what they think, it's infallible teaching because they are baptized.
Come on. Let us cut the baloney and face the truth.
