Congressman: Pope acts like 'a leftist politician'
In an op-ed published Thursday, the Arizona Republican, who is also a Catholic, said the pontiff's stance toward climate change reminds him of "a leftist politician."

"If the pope stuck to standard Christian theology, I would be the first in line. If the pope spoke out with moral authority against violent Islam, I would be there cheering him on. If the pope urged the western nations to rescue persecuted Christians in the Middle East, I would back him wholeheartedly. But when the pope chooses to act and talk like a leftist politician, then he can expect to be treated like one," Gosar wrote on Townhall.com, a conservative website.

Though there have been no precise indications from the Vatican on what the pope plans to say in his speech to Congress, his recent comments on Cuba, the Iran nuclear deal and climate change do offer a hint. ...

Ah, John--

QUOTE][AUTHOR]James McCarthy[/AUTHOR]Despite the Church’s confident assertions, there is no biblical basis for the submission that Rome demands. Christ never instituted an authority structure such as the one Rome seeks to impose upon Catholics. The rock upon which Christ built His church was Himself, not Peter. Though Peter was a leading figure among the apostles, he was never the head of the apostles. The Lord Jesus was their leader both while He was on earth and after He ascended into heaven....

The pope, on the other hand, expects Catholics to submit to him as Christ’s representative. They are to receive the Church’s teaching "with docility," treating the pope’s dogmatic teaching as infallible, beyond even the possibility of error....[/QUOTE]excerpt from [URL=http://www.reachingcatholics.org/romauthority.html]]]Roman Authority[/URL]

John Y., He's just you're typical Pope, a political/economic extremist, quite sane and thus knowingly rejecting Christianity.

There is only one chief Shepherd of the sheep.

I Peter 5: 1-4
The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, ... Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight ... not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away.

Then a short time later, The Catholic Encyclopedia points out, "the second successor of Stephen had the body of Formosus, which a monk had drawn from the Tiber, reinterred with full honors in St.Peter's. He furthermore annulled at a synod the decisions of the court of Stephen VI, and declared all orders conferred by Formosus valid. John IX confirmed these acts at two synods ... On the other hand Sergius 111 (904-911) approved in a Roman synod the desicions of Stephen's synod against Formosus ... Sergius and his party meted out severe treatment to the bishops consecrated by Formosus, who in turn had meanwhile conferred orders on many other clerics, a policy which gave rise to the greatest confusion." Such sharp disagreement between Popes certainly argues against the idea of papal infallibility.

I believe the this pope will join forces with socialist governments or leaders to take on Protestant Christianity. Not against Pentecostalism or other heresys, but against Protestants who historically know that this dragon of old is the manifestation of the anti Christ and his system of dominion over the forces of darkness. The world is about to see what papal authority can do when not questioned or worshiped.

Who thinks up this stuff? Sounds like papal bull to me.

These are an entertaining bunch of anti-Christs, they could even make a prime time TV show about them. They should have done that to greet his Unholiness Franny. Franny is probably will be as bad in his own way, as those mentioned.

Bishop Joseph Strossmayer (1815-1905), is described in "The Catholic Encyclopedia" as "one of the most notable opponents of Papal infallibility." He pointed out that some of the Popes had opposed other Popes. Special mention was made of how Pope Stephen VI (896-897) brought former Pope Formosus (891-896) to trial.

The famous story of one Pope bringing another to trial is one of sheer horror,
for Pope Formosus had been dead for eight months!

Nevertheless, the body was brought from the tomb and placed on a throne. There before a group of bishops and cardinals was the former Pope, dressed in the rich apparel of the Papacy, a crown upon his loose scalp, and the scepter of the holy office in the stiff fingers of his rotting hand!

Quote;
"Such gestures have played well to the fold and energized dissidents in the church, but also rankled conservatives, many of whom wondered aloud if Francis was a closet proponent of liberation theology. The left-leaning strain of Catholicism that mingles Marxist encomiums with teachings from scripture once flourished in Latin America, including among the Argentine clergy.

As a young Jesuit, Bergoglio was influenced by prominent liberationist priests. And to this day, some of his most scathing words are reserved for the free-market economy, an arrangement he derided as "savage capitalism."

Francis sounds as though he'd make a good Democrat.

His Unholiness is just acting like the Jesuit he is.
Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley wrote:
The Jesuits taught the killing of kings. True many were murdered before the order existed; but that order first taught that it is honest, just, and right to kill a tyrant king, - when the Jesuits have declared him a tyrant!

The cardinal point and ground of these immoralities is the theory of Fathers Tirino, Nicolai, and others, that "the end justifies the means." Saint Paul teaches otherwise; but they say, commit any amount of evil to do a little good; and as the greatest good is to promote the Jesuitical cause, to promote it, it were necessary to subvert, to oppress, all Europe, all the new World, to kill all the inhabitants of both these continents, it is right to subvert, to oppress, to kill!
