President Obama increasingly is finding a key policy ally in the Vatican, with Pope Francis standing virtually shoulder to shoulder with the White House
I'm betting the Democratic party's use of the Holy Father has a lot to do with money changing hands and Jack Connors.
A hell of a thing for the people suffering under dictators but what a hero Pope Francis has made of himself with the communists and useful idiots.
The Washington Times story indicates the Holy Father is entering into 'agreements' with the Democrats.
For Mr. Obama and fellow Democrats, aligning with Francis offers clear benefits in the short term, as they are able to highlight agreement on controversial issues with one of the most respected figures on the planet.
They know we're onto them:
To soothe American Catholics, who may have grown suspicious of the church’s partnership with a liberal White House,
Maybe when they're done helping Obama, they can help kim jong un get some stuff done.
Because that's what Jesus was, a political crony of murderers and oppressive dictators.
Remember when Moses forged an alliance with the Pharaoh to help his productivity where they could find common ground?
These people have suddenly forgotten 4000 years of JudeoChristian lessons from God on what they're supposed to be doing when their people are oppressed.
To appease the political dictators they need to dabble the political power they so desperately desire to be part of, they withhold Church teaching from the flock they were ordained to shepherd.
You'd think they'd say to themselves, Let me see how 4000 years of prophets handled this situation.
I can see them pouring over Scripture and coming up empty...
I wonder why nobody tried withholding and maligning Church teaching and those who practice it for a couple of years?
If I do it, I can get wit' Obama and help him spread Communism and then the people will have free bread and butter.
All they'll have to do to get it is sterilize uncatechized women and abort their children if they're doctors and nurses and pharmacists, perform or host same sex marriages, promote adultery and licentiousness. But that is none of my affair.
In a spirit of openness, I can make Mapplethorpe the theme of the Synod on the family and since none of this is in 4000 years of Scripture, call it "Jesus is trying something new".
I'll say nothing when Cardinal Marx and Kasper promote gay marriage but I'll count the number of times priests say the Mass in Latin and discipline them.
I'll be on the cover of Time Magazine as the Person of the Year. People will like me and I'll have more political power to lend a hand to political juggernauts of my people.
Thus ending God's role of the prophet who is preserving sanctity and salvation of God's people under the oppression of a tyrant.
