The 'far right' "war" on Pope Francis. ( a.k.a. The histrionics of political bigots)

This story from the Washington Post is like something you'd read in tabloid trash magazines in the supermarket whose front page story features Steve Tyler's breast size.

Let's take a walk through what Jonathan Capehart caricatures as 'stunning leaps of logic and rhetoric', shall we?

Like Obama, Francis is unable to see the problems that are really endangering his people. Like Obama he mistakes the faithful for the enemy, the enemy for his friend, condescension for respect, socialism for justice and capitalism for tyranny.

Seems like a pretty accurate summary to me.

It's a little exaggerated but generally speaking, he's out of touch with the reign of terror and consequences of the unfettered tyranny of unfaithful priests and bishops.

The money is the last thing on our minds. We're concerned about the obstacles unfaithful tyrants are creating to salvation.

Shaw’s astonishing post shows that not even the pope is off limits to the fury of the far right.

The far right. There isn't any such thing.

In religion, there are people who align themselves with the Catechism and the people who reject it. They think the Pope's alliance is with the latter.

Give me a break.

I often wonder how these people conduct themselves in their relationships with people they love and care about. When their loved ones express a need or explain a mistake, it's a declaration of war to them?

God knows we've all had people like that in our lives.

They're such a drag.

Everything Shaw said is correct. I would not have referred to American's as Obama's "people," however. That's how that little wannabe dictator thinks. I ain't his people. Americans are not owned by the head of the executive branch of government.
