After all the rejections of this message, the truth remains. Papal visit, Day One, was another victory for darkness.
The Pope is a good and holy man. He preaches Love and Mercy in continuity with his predecessors, the successors to St. Peter. He is, however, naïve to the immense power of evil in America. He does not understand the force that progressivism, and its subsequent destruction of life and liberty, has on the hearts and minds of everyday Americans.
Let’s start with the Papal address at the White House. The Pope began with a statement on immigration, to the delight of Barack Obama. Then he spent one sentence on the family, without making a definitive statement. Strike One! He then spoke of building a ‘just and wisely ordered society’ without specifics. Then he spoke a long 50-60 words on ‘climate change.’ Once again to the delight of the progressive President. Strike Two! He then finished with a few words on helping those vulnerable people through international efforts aimed at inclusiveness. The Pope struck out…
Then, in front of the bishops he initiated his homily with immigration. He then gave a lengthy, and progressive pleasing, re-beating of the Church concerning the priestly sexual crisis. Then, in an example of naivete, he compared Argentina to the United States. For example, he stated that the United States was evangelized through itinerant preachers.
The Pope stated definitively, that he did not come to ‘judge and lecture.’ Then why did he come? Pope Francis mentioned the devil, but never addressed the evils in America. He spoke of ‘light and darkness’ but never gave real life specifics. He hid behind abstract theology. He kept saying ‘dialogue, dialogue’ but never initiated a dialogue defending Life in America. He did mention ‘abortion’ once. In a sweeping statement of many crimes in America. He never mentioned ‘gay’ marriage. Triple were the words about immigration and climate change.
He kisses babies. He preaches the gospel of Mercy. But he never stands up for his people like a courageous Shepherd.
