Marxist Pope Warns Against Marxism

Marxist Pope Warns Against Marxism

It is well known by now that the famous rhetorical question “Is the Pope Catholic?” doesn’t have a certain answer anymore. The present occupant of the Chair of St. Peter, however, has more than once given cause to ask instead, “Is the Pope Marxist?” To the surprise of nearly everyone in the world, however, Pope Francis has just warned against the dangers of Marxist theology. The Spanish-language Argentine edition of Aleteia reported Saturday that, in a letter to the Santa Maria Spirituality Center in Buenos Aires, the Pontiff warned against “the ideologizing of a Marxist tint of some Latin American centers in the ‘70s.”

Wait a minute. This is the pope who wrote in his 2020 encyclical Fratelli Tutti, “The marketplace, by itself, cannot resolve every problem, however much we are asked to believe this dogma of neoliberal faith. Whatever the challenge, this impoverished and repetitive school of thought always offers the same recipes. Neoliberalism simply reproduces itself by resorting to the magic theories of ‘spillover’ or ‘trickle’ – without using the name – as the only solution to societal problems.” Actually, the name “trickle-down economics” is indeed used by critics of the view that those who innovate, create, and provide employment opportunities for others should be penalized for doing so.

Macron accused of “anti-Muslim prejudice” for calling Bosnia a “ticking time bomb”

Even globalist French President Emmanuel Macron is failing to keep Islamic supremacists happy. No matter how much globalists kowtow, it will never suffice until the sharia is established. This has already begun, with shutting-down of speech that has been deemed offensive to Islam and/or Muslims, while flinging open doors to unvetted Muslim migration.

The Marxist president of Bolivia has been forced to resign. Not before time. He had the insulting audacity to present a hammer and sickle crucifix to the Pope!

The Pope was diplomatic sympathetic. but this was certainly an occasion calling for direct rebuke.

This pope is an a$$. He is a communist sympathiser & co-conspirator.

The pope went even farther in the same encyclical, stating that “the Christian tradition has never recognized the right to private property as absolute or inviolable, and has stressed the social purpose of all forms of private property.” Instead, “the principle of the common use of created goods is the ‘first principle of the whole ethical and social order’; it is a natural and inherent right that takes priority over others,” which certainly sounds a great deal like Marxism. Francis emphasized that this “common use of created goods” took precedence over any concept of private ownership: “All other rights having to do with the goods necessary for the integral fulfilment of persons, including that of private property or any other type of property, should – in the words of Saint Paul VI – ‘in no way hinder [this right], but should actively facilitate its implementation.’”

Only then did the pope grudgingly allow a place for individual ownership at all: “The right to private property can only be considered a secondary natural right, derived from the principle of the universal destination of created goods.” He lamented that this vision had not been widely implemented: “This has concrete consequences that ought to be reflected in the workings of society. Yet it often happens that secondary rights displace primary and overriding rights, in practice making them irrelevant. … The right to private property is always accompanied by the primary and prior principle of the subordination of all private property to the universal destination of the earth’s goods, and thus the right of all to their use.”
