All Hail Pope Francis!!
As we slowly accept and learn more about the Church's new Pope, it appears as if one of my predictions has come true, at least in the words of Pope Francis. Notice how at one point in the video, they quote him implying that public figures who claim to be Catholic but support abortion should be denied Communion, as evident in his signing of a document known as the "Aparecida Document".
A fact about his teachings we don't know about, since the media doesn't want that part known, instead choosing to pervert his concern for the poor for their own big government agenda, something Pope Francis (as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio) knows first hand, in both the past and recent future:
In the 1970's, then Father Bergoglio, like other fellow Argentinians, went through what became known in his native country as the Dirty War, a dark time of government backed terrorism and guerrilla warfare. In 2005, a human rights lawyer filed a complaint against Bergoglio (by this point, superior for the Jesuits in Argentina), accusing him of conspiring with the Navy in the kidnapping of two Jesuit priests during the Dirty War. All too eager to go along and not caring about the facts, the Argentine government went with the accusation. The charges were later dropped (mostly because the evidence was sketchy at best and it was proven the two were kidnapped thanks to their own stupidity).
But his fights with the government doesn't stop there. In 2010, the Argentinian government passed a law making gay so-called marriage legal, in spite of overwhelming opposition by its own citizens (no surprise here: the Argentinian government is NOTORIOUS for running over the rights of its own people). Then Cardinal Bergoglio issued this statement:
"Let's not be naïve, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."
He has also gone on record opposing adoption by same-sex couples, free distribution of contraceptives, and described the pro-choice movement as "a culture of death." Boy, is Joe Biden going to get the book thrown at him! While cardinal, he was the first of the Latin American bishops to voice his support and go-ahead to Benedict XVI call to revive the Latin Mass in all areas.
On his first day as pope, he visited the grave of St Pius V, who was the pope who granted sainthood to Thomas Aquinas, cleaned up corruption in his own day, and ordered a papal army against Muslims to victory with the guidance of Our Lady of the Rosary (the patroness of this blog).
In other words, with our prayers and support, atheists are screwed, because atheists are idiots.
