What is wrong with this man?!

Can anyone explain to me why the Vicar of Christ is acting like such an idiot? Seriously what is wrong with Pope Francis? The supposed head of Christ’s Church on Earth performed a Cirque du soleil-style feat of acrobatics in order to give moral equivalence to the bloody and deadly spread of the Islamic Caliphate by claiming that Jesus also instructed Christians to seek “conquest.”

Is he out of his mind?!

From Pamela Geller:

Asked point blank what he thought of the widespread fear of Islam in the West, Francis replied that his impression is that most people don’t fear “Islam as such” but rather “Daesh [the Islamic State] and its war of conquest, drawn in part from Islam.”
 
The Pope went on, however, to acknowledge that the “idea of conquest is inherent to the soul of Islam,” while immediately adding that “one could also interpret the end of Saint Matthew’s gospel, where Jesus sends out his disciples to all nations, as the same idea of conquest.”

Honestly, I think if Saint Peter could, he’d come back to Rome and kick this man’s ass around the Vatican.

Was that in poor taste?

If you think it is, consider what he is saying. If anything is in poor taste it’s implying that Jesus wanted his believers to do what ISIS is doing.

Now, in the interests of full disclosure, I am not Catholic. But I am a Christian. And though I am no theologian, I do read the Bible regularly and hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. I am fully aware of the Gospel of Jesus and his instructions to his disciples to carry the message of salvation throughout the world.

And let me blunt (or, blunt-“er” as the case may be). Jesus did not instruct his Church to conquer the world in his name. The Gospel was to be spread to Jew and Gentile alike, but nowhere is the Church instructed to slaughter those who do not convert. We are called to evangelize, not conquer.

When Paul and Silas were in the jail in Philippi, and the jailer asked them, “What must I do to be saved?” Paul didn’t say to him, “Repent and believe in Jesus or we’ll cut your head off.” He told him, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. You and your household.” [Acts 16:24-34]

Those called to Christ are told to carry the message of salvation, not conquer the world in the name of Jesus.

Christ’s Kingdom is not of this world. It isn’t the world he seeks to save, but the soul of individuals.

Honestly, how is it this Pope cannot comprehend this?!

But, see, Francis’ ministry has very little to do with the Gospel. His mission is to justify the sins of the flesh through moral equivalence and social religion.

Let’s take a gander at one of the 45 Goals of Communism:
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

This is what Francis is doing you guys. He is surrendering the Catholic Church to the secular. He is embracing relativism and moral equivalence so as not to elevate one religious faith over another.

He is betraying the ministry Jesus called his disciples to carry out.

To try and equate the violence and barbarism of radical Islam to Christ’s call to his disciples is anti-Christian. ISIS is nothing short of evil. It is without question demonic in nature. And by elevating its violent, barbaric quest for a caliphate as something similar to Christ’s call to his Church is absolutely contemptible.

    The old joke goes “Is the Pope Catholic?”, not, “Is the Pope a believer?”
    Does he get his homilies from “The Art of the Deal”?

    One side tells you how to choose what they want you to choose, or else. The other side asks you to choose wisely for your eternal life/salvation depends on it. With the first you have no other choices, you will be thier slave. With the second choice, you are free to choose your own path, be yourself, exercise free-will. Once again, as in the beginning, I choose God’s Plan, and reject Satan’s plan. You may know them by thier fruits. It has always been the same choices for all time and eternity. We are constantlty tested and tempted. It is always our choice. Please consider the moral compass of all the candidates before you vote. The lesser of two evils is still evil. Worry is when we believe that God doesn’t have a plan for us. Trust in Him, He will show us the way. It may not be easy but it will be right. Not everyone will choose the right. So be it, that is thier choice. Perhaps they will choose correctly and make amends before it is too late. Thanks Dianny

    Pope Francis puts his Peronista politics above everything. Communism has formed his worldview and he bends Catholic and Christian teachings to fit that world view. He isn’t the first in the Catholic church to do so, but I do believe he is the first Pope to do so.

    I found him repulsive from the very beginning.

    I also wonder what shenanigans were used to get him the job and shove out Benedict.
