End of Left’s Honeymoon with Pope Francis?
Liberal is its own religion.
Check it out:
Well, folks, the left’s honeymoon with Pope Francis may be coming to an end. Remember the pope went out there and released an economic encyclical or document in which I analyzed it as being almost Marxist. And this caused just… There were eruptions in voluminous amounts. In fact, there were volcanic eruptions in the media. And all of a sudden the left, which hates the Catholic Church, fell in love with the pope!
Remember that? Oh, if I come out criticize him, the pope’s gotta be a good guy. So they fell in love with pope. “The pope is a great guy!” But now the Vatican’s chief justice feels that President Obama’s policies have been hostile toward Christians. “Vatican Chief Justice: Obama’s Policies ‘Have Become Progressively More Hostile Toward Christian Civilization’ — The Vatican’s chief justice feels that President Barack Obama’s policies have been hostile toward Christians.”
Now, this is the Vatican. This is an official. It doesn’t have to be coming from the pope in order for it to be official. “In an interview with Polonia Christiana magazine — and transcribed by Life Site News — Cardinal Raymond Burke said that Obama ‘promotes anti-life and anti-family policies.'” So the Vatican is out defending Christianity, defending itself, and this is gonna cause a fissure between the media, which was falling in love with the pope.
They weren’t falling in love with the Catholic Church, don’t misunderstand. They were falling in love with the pope. They thought, they really thought… Here, again, is another classic illustration of total ignorance. They really think that they can make the Catholic Church moderate its tone. They think they can bring the Catholic Church into what they call the Twenty-First Century. They think that this pope might actually legalize gay marriage, sanction it in the church.
