SOS to Pope Francis: It’s souls that need saving, not the environment
Protocol and pomp and ceremony aside, why would Christ’s Vicar on Earth come to pay homage to a president who is unabashedly the world’s top champion of abortions, including partial birth abortions; whose party refuses to defund Planned Parenthood whose organization sells body parts of aborted babies on the black market; and whose presidency is driven by a soul-corroding hatred of the country he was elected to serve?
The prayer for the pontiff’s visit to the den of iniquity known as the White House should be along the lines of: “Please God let it be naivete and a secret soul saving mission and not Obama boosting bringing Pope Francis to American shores.”
It’s almost as if the Christian world is in a sleep walk.
“A Gallup poll released last month showed Francis losing support among conservative Catholics. It found his favorable rating among them fell from 72 percent last year to 45 percent in July. His favorable rating among all Catholics dropped from 89 percent to 71 percent.” (NewsDay, Aug. 24, 2015)
A drop from 89 percent to 71 percent is hardly a dramatic one.
Are any among the 71 percent even a teensy bit concerned that the wishy-washy style of the current crop of blow-with-any-wind Catholic leaders and their fawning media attendants are making it appear as if everything’s more than hunky-dory with Pope Francis so openly paying allegiance to President Barack Hussein Obama?
“Sweeping into office in 2009, President Barack Obama captured near rock-star status around the world among millions who saw him as the embodiment of a new sense of social purpose. Now, that baton has largely been passed to Pope Francis, whose visit to the White House next month will put his common cause with Obama on vivid display. (AP, August 26, 2015)
“Obama has made no secret of his affection for the outspoken pope, calling him a “transformative leader” whose influence has transcended the Roman Catholic community. The pope has embraced many of the issues Obama has sought to advance, including global warming, poverty and diplomacy with Iran and Cuba.”
Millions rocked with shock and distaste when Obama began openly bowing to the enemies of America shortly after his arrival to White House power.
Now the Pope is bowing to Obama???
Protocol is protocol, popes are popes, but why would the head of the Catholic Church bow to a president whose seething hatred of all things American sets him apart from every other president ever elected?
Obama, who started off by getting his way at having all religious symbols covered at Georgetown, is now coming on as if he owns the Catholic Church, and the way things are looking, who can say he doesn’t?
Is it only protocol that keeps the Pope from confronting Obama for being the Number One World Champion of abortion and the leader of a party that refuses to defund Planned Parenthood?
Surely the will of the Almighty and the scripture of the Bible outstrip man-made protocol.
“Vice President Joe Biden, a Catholic, said the pope’s Sept. 23 visit will mark an important moment not only for Catholics but for all Americans. (USNews. Aug. 26, 2015)
“Pope Francis has breathed new life into what I believe is the central mission of our faith: Catholic social doctrine,” Biden said in a statement to The Associated Press. Invoking key elements of Obama’s agenda, Biden added that Francis “has become a moral rudder for the world on some of the most important issues of our time, from inequality to climate change.”
How did “the most important issues of our time”, “from inequality to climate change” trump soul saving?
Michael Wear, a former White House official who led faith outreach for Obama’s 2012 campaign says “It’s going to be a come-to-Jesus moment.” (AP)
For whom, Mr. Wear.?”
“Coming to Jesus” should have nothing to do with politics but everything to do with an individual and their Creator.
“For Obama, the visit offers a chance to imbue his remaining goals with a sense of moral authority as he approaches the end of his presidency.” (AP)
Can any Christian leader explain the above line to the wondering masses?
Millions saw the hype and hoopla when Obama swept into office with Democrat-designed “rock star status”.
The DNC introduced to a reality TV trained world, a messiah with a bogus message of Hope and Change.
But Obama was and is, in essence, only a false god.
“The first commandment of God is: I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.”
The world will need to remember that when Barack Obama and Pope Francis celebrate their highly touted, school boy-like “reunion” on September 23, 2015.
