About that Argentine ‘Pope of Social Justice’

‘Social Justice’ is code for Marxism. Socialism is where Argentina went and that’s why it became what it is today. Unfortunately for all of us, America under Obama and Europe under the EU seem to be following the Argentine model.

Ann Barnhardt:

Francis, like his homeland of Argentina, is a total disaster. He has overseen the near-total destruction of the Church in Argentina. (Read it all)

Shocka. The Pope is a Catholic

POPE Francis has warned in his first mass that the Catholic Church risks becoming little more than a charity with no spiritual foundations….

Robert Spencer:

Will Pope Francis Challenge Muslim Persecution of Christians?

The Islamic world that the Fathers of Vatican II had in mind is rapidly disappearing. So are the Christians in lands occupied by the soldiers of allah.

 Normal = shut up, dhimmi.

Grand Imam of al-Azhar hopes that with new pope, Muslim-Christian relations will “return to normal”

“Let’s hope now that relations return to normal.” Normal = don’t quote anyone who says anything negative about Muhammad, even if you emphasize that you aren’t endorsing the quote. Normal = don’t say anything about Muslim persecution of Christians. Let the Muslim mobs do their work without “interference.” Normal = shut up, dhimmi.

“Imam of Al-Azhar hopes papal relations can ‘normalise,'” from ANSA, March 13 (thanks to JW):

Imam of Al-Azhar hopes papal relations can ‘normalise’ (ANSA) – Cairo, March 13 – Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, hopes the election of Francis I as pope can normalise relations with the Islamic world, the diplomatic advisor to one of the most influential figures for Sunni Muslims said Wednesday.Francis’s predecessor Benedict XVI angered the Islamic world when in 2006 he quoted a past emperor who called Islam ‘evil and inhuman’.

Benedict’s appeals on the behalf of Christian minorities suffering attacks in the Muslim world were also seem by some as interference.

“Let’s hope now that relations return to normal,” the advisor, Mahmud Abdel Gawad, told ANSA adding that el-Tayeb will send Francis a telegram on Thursday.

  1. I was hoping for a Black Pope after this article by James Delingpole some weeks back.
    I see no hope of the Catholic Church standing up for Catholics to their most rabid enemy, Islam.

    SOCIAL JUSTICE Please gimme a break , its only destroyed the economies of Europe USA England and Australia, but hey lets give it one more try.

    Let us pray for a black pope – he’d be manna from heaven

    Gosh, won’t it be marvellous if the next pope turns out to be black? And I’m not saying this as a Catholic or one of those earnest Lefty types who yearns for an ethnic minority figure to be appointed to every position of authority. I’m just saying it as an amused bystander: really, I can hardly wait to see the cat among the pigeons, if someone like the current favourite – Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson – gets the job.
    Turkson is Ghanaian and considerably darker of hue than the previous three African pontiffs (St Victor I, St Miltiades and St Gelasius), all of whom hailed from the north and probably weren’t really black at all. I’ve no doubt in the salons of Islington and the BBC canteens, they will all think this is a jolly good thing, much as they did when Barack Obama ushered in a golden new era of joy, healing, reconciliation and endless world peace.
    But I’m not sure that’s what they’re going to get. African churchmen – non-Western or non-white clergy, generally – tend to be considerably more robust and old school than your Reverend J C Flannel comedy Anglican vicar with his very real concerns about diversity and homosexual rights and the urgent threat of climate change. They’re so old-fashioned, in fact, that they even all still believe in God.
    We’ve seen this in two of our most splendid Church of England bishops. Ugandan-born John Sentamu is strongly against gay marriage; and he has stuck up for English values against the perils of multiculturalism. Karachi-born Michael Nazir-Ali, formerly the Bishop of Rochester, has long been a brave and outspoken critic of Islamism – and was one of the first to warn of the Muslim “no-go” areas that have sprung up in many of our inner cities.
    An African pope (most probably, the favourite Turkson; the other mooted candidate, Nigeria’s Cardinal Arinze, is now too old) would be unlikely to take any prisoners on either score. Cardinal Turkson has already declared his opposition to gay marriage. (And you’d be more likely to find a tiger in the Serengeti than an African clergyman who’d disagree with him.) As for his position on Islam, it’s hardly going to impress all those bien-pensant types who believe what the next pope really needs to do after Benedict XVI’s Regensburg lecture is reach out the hand of ecumenical friendship.
    The reason for this is quite simply that African churchmen have seen the Islamist threat at its ugliest and most aggressive. In countries such as Nigeria, church congregations have been burnt alive by Islamist terrorist groups such as Boko Haram. This does not put them in the mood to turn the other cheek or deliver hand-wringing speeches in which they feel their rival religion’s pain.
    All this, of course, is going to create no end of wailing and gnashing of teeth among the glib Catholic-bashers of the Left. For years, the Church has been an easy target: it is unrepentantly patriarchal; traditionalist; institutionally homophobic; hierarchical – all the things Guardianistas loathe. While a German was in charge, it was open season. Everything from the Pope’s unfortunate Hitler Youth past to the Church’s record on child abuse was fair game. Recently, it was even blamed for the fact that a gift shop near the Vatican sold items made of endangered ivory.
    But how on earth are they going to keep it up if there’s a black African in charge?
    Anti-Catholic prejudice might be acceptable – even encouraged – in Leftist circles. Racism, on the other hand, is the worst crime in the Lefty rule book – the equivalent to what Catholics would call a mortal sin. If there is a God and He’s as unapologetically Right-wing as I think he is, Cardinal Turkson will definitely get the job: it’s just too entertaining an opportunity to resist.

  2. Il Pape di Tutti Papas, Franki “the lung” Bengoogle won’t last for long, so maybe there’s still time for this to happen.

    I could care less about gays one way or the other, but this bit about the African clergy having seen islamic tolerance in action close-up and personal intrigues me to no end.
