Hey Alex, give me ‘Communist’ for 100.
Growing up as a socialist in Argentina, Jorge Bergoglio ‘read books of the Communist Party that my boss in the laboratory gave me.’ Jorge, soon to be Francis, also savored articles from the newspaper ‘La Vanguardia,’ written and protected by socialist militants. Furthermore, he claims his mentor to be Esther Ballestrino de Careaga, whom he describes as a ‘fervent communist.’ Jorge (Francis) also had the audacity to smuggle communist books into the Jesuit library while in Argentina.
Alex, give me hypocrite for 200.
Argentine journalists, all to familiar with Jorge’s fake humility spoke of his staged poverty. Lucrecia Rego de Planas, an Argentinian Catholic editor stated: ‘Ugh…there he goes again, always trying to attract attention to himself! For if one truly wanted to be humble, and simple, wouldn’t it be better to behave like the other bishops, so as to go unnoticed?’ Biographer Paul Vallely noted an time when Pope Francis ordered a subordinate not to carry his luggage onto an airplane so that the press could see Francis carrying his own luggage. The kicker is that the bag was already on the plane! Francis then ordered his subordinate to put it back so that he could heroically carry it out!
Alex, give me bully for 300.
In 1975, liberal Jesuit leader Pedro Arrupe appointed Jorge Bergoglio to be the enforcer of the progressive movement. Prior to a world meeting of Jesuits, future Pope Francis, Jorge, sent away conservative Jesuits with a threat of being kicked out of the Jesuits if they attended the conference. Shortly after, Jorge was separated from the Jesuits, not for being conservative, but being too heavy handed in his actions.
Alex, give me ‘gay lobbyist’ for 400.
Francis, as Pope, appointed Cardinal Oswald Gracias to the Council of Cardinals after a career of berating priests who taught about homosexuality from the Traditional perspective. Futhermore, Francis hired an actively homosexual priest, the infamous Monsignor Battista Ricca, to the highest ecclesial post in the Vatican bank. Ricca is famous for being rescued by Italian police from a stuck elevator while occupying it with a male prostitute. Ricca also was beaten up while attending a gay bar. Rumors also had Ricca in a relationship with one of the Swiss guard.
Finally, Alex, give me ‘Church killer’ for 500.
Attendance at Vatican pilgrimages have dropped precipitously during Francis’ tenure. In 2014, 6.6 million visitors were recorded. In 2016, 3.2 million. And let’s not even discuss Church attendance in the West, spurred on by spurious Francis theology!
Alex, I can’t play anymore. I am getting sick.
