Isn't this the kind of rhetoric from a state-controlled communist counterfeit church?

Pope Francis told Obama his worries are about air pollution in this time in the history of civilization.

WASHINGTON — Pope Francis quietly but forcefully made his priorities clear during his first full day in the United States on Wednesday, urging in a pair of speeches a renewed emphasis on tackling global poverty, confronting climate change, caring for migrants and providing a welcoming church that is pastoral rather than doctrinaire.

No doctrine/no Sanctifying Grace.

No Sanctifying Grace/no people in the pew and no salvation.

There isn't a dime's worth of difference between a communist counterfeit church run by the state and this pathetic rhetoric.

Then, astoundingly, he told bishops that it is wrong to be silent on the victims of abortion.

If he is silent on abortion while repeatedly telling the world the mission of the Church is air pollution and not doctrine, nothing the rest of us say has any efficacy in any forum. From the family, a parish, a diocese or the leaders of our nation.

Let's just suppose for a moment that Congress legislated the legality of killing unwanted immigrants and got caught removing their body parts while alive to sell them.

How would righteous people feel about a pope laughing and joking beside him and expressing he is encouraged by Obama's leadership because of actions he's taken on 'air pollution'?

It was a disgusting display and I am not looking forward to today!

I wonder what God will do to get the Pope's attention focused where it belongs?

Carol, as I read the statement to the bishops at St. Matthew's today, I saw no strong exhortation to speak to abortion. He devoted a grand total of five words to the matter. Granted that was five more words than at the White House address, but I'd hardly call that a rousing exhortation. At the White House he focused on "climate change". At St Matthew's his attention was on immigration. Lord only knows what will happen at Congress.

Pope Francis seems to enjoy being used by progressive politicians to further their agenda. He is supposed to be carrying Christ's message of salvation and redemption to the world but instead is preaching the salvation of climate change and other worldly concerns. I conclude that Pope Francis doesn't really believe in Christ and his doctrine. I hope he can be persuaded to resign soon.

Yes, but let's focus on the important stuff: he's being driven around in a Fiat and always looks disheveled and unkempt-a man of the people.

The biggest joke about Pope Francis' views on immigration is that he has never defended Christians fleeing persecution from Muslims with any moral force. Neither did his two immediate predecessors.

Francis isn't being used by anyone. He's a comrade.

I'd still like to know why, if he's so concerned about the poor and global warming, no one has brought up how much pollution this papal trip is adding to the allegedly already taxed atmosphere, and how much money is being spent just on protecting him that could be used instead on programs for the poor. Isn't that one of his biggest complaints?

They are all the same - do as I say, not as I do.
