Pope Dalai

Once again, the utterly disquieting theology of the Bishop of Rome has come to the fore. 

It is clear that to this man damnation is not a possibility concerning the quisque de populo. “Normal” homosexual priests, or adulterous spouses, do not comply with the minimum requirements to merit damnation. To them, the “slap in the wrist”-theory applies. 

This, Francis extends outside of the Catholic, even of the Christian religion. 

The result? Muslim should hang on to their Korans and receive his message of congratulation for their beautiful spirituality at Ramadan; Jews should be reminded to eat kosher; and Atheist should be encouraged to follow their conscience. 

If most people are saved, is there any necessity to convert others to Catholicism? No, no, no! 

If most people are saved, Proselytism is a solemn foolishness. 

If most people are saved, Christ does not have to be brought to them; because you see, they are already pretty much there, on Christ’s side, where they are! They are whenever they hold on to their Korans, eat kosher, and follow their conscience! 

If most people are saved, and if they are saved irrespective of their faith, or lack thereof,  salvation isn’t really an issue and therefore proselytism a waste of time. If most people are saved, then peace, harmony, social justice, and synchronised Tambourine play must take precedence. If Christ is everywhere, there’s no need to bring him anywhere. If mortal sin has been all but abolished, being Catholic has been made all but superfluous. 

If most people are saved, who isn’t? 

Those Francis really doesn’t like, he appears. Mafiosi are, we are told, not saved; though why the adulteress should go to communion and Don Francesco down in Trapani should not has not been explained. I am now informed arms producers are also going to be damned. A strange proposition in a country, like Italy, where the defence industry is in large part in state hands, and the citizens are therefore all arms producers. A strange proposition also for anyone older than six, then one wonders  why on earth to produce a tank should be more of a sin than to produce a kitchen knife, a baseball bat, and the countless other objects with which evil people can do harm. With the important difference that seriously evil people will not be stopped by your knives, much less baseball bats. But do you think this man is grateful to the countless people working for other people’s security, individual as well as collective? ‘Course not. It does not tingle the worst instinct of the mob, you see. Of the same mob who in great part owe their freedom to those very arms the Bishop of Rome finds to sinful. 

Embarrassing. 

There isn’t much Christianity in Francis. Rather, there is a lot of rehashed Gandhi-cum-Dalai-Lama, a mix of New Age and Woodstock mentality that would have been painful in 1969 and is utterly comical today, after traumatic attacks to the West’s liberty and way of life had to be countered with something more robust than cutlery, or off-the-cuff papal sermons. Still, this does not prevent the man from criticising weapons as bad. Those same weapons, mind, who have saved his well-nourished backside from Communist dictatorship. 

Francis has the depth of a Coca Cola ad, without having any of the (possible) youth and freshness.  His senseless slogans and patronising, superficial, more than vaguely populist rants are thinking-free waffle for the brain-free. He is the apostle of the common place, the paladin of the easy slogan, and the undisputed Platitude King. 

Enough with Pope Dalai The Humble.

  1. Visit http://www.news.va and click on Pope Francis’ General Audience for today. You will be surprised to hear him talk of everyone’s need for that Seventh Gift of the Holy Spirit called, “Fear of The LORD.” There is a audio player. Pray a Hail Mary then listen.

    • Catholic glasses, you are suffering of an acute form of Pollyann-ing.
      Francis does not care now for the rubbish he has said fifteen minutes ago, and will always say whatever pleases his audience; an audience which, at times, even wants to hear something Catholic.
      Pray a Hail Mary then thank me for opening your eyes.

  2. As sad as the situation is, its nice to be able to laugh every once in a while (in these days a good laugh now and then can help). If you ever decide to give up the whole blog thing (please dont) you seriously might have a future in comedy. Good job.

  3. You are of course correct. As I have said for some time, the theology of “universal salvation” – gifted us by Jesuits like Rahner and von Balthasar – is at the heart of this great apostasy. And it is a most fundamental heresy held, I would venture, by the majority of baptised Catholics today. It is the death of faith. It is the life of the new religion of man.

    • And it is a “religion” Bergoglio is pushing relentlessly, perhaps on his quest for the 100th million Twitter follower.
      Which, in hell, wouldn’t be of much use anyway.

  4. Now it seems so plain why other bishops and Cardinals have ignored abuses and disorders in the Church for so many years.

  5. “Many a true word spoken in jest,” as they say… And many a bs word spoken in the name of sincerity (and Jesus), eh Francis…

  6. It turns out that secular Saint Gandhi had the long habit (once he was famous and could do whatever he liked) of sleeping (naked) with teenage girls (also naked). This sounds like something that must be made up on the internet, but there is enough evidence to believe that it’s true. He did it purportedly to “torture himself” and strengthen himself spiritually. That’s what happens when people think that they can decide for themselves in freestyle fashion about what is right or wrong. Gandhi had no thought, of course, of how that creepy activity might psychologically harm the girls – including some who were related to him.

    and many other pages (plus a book from a close associate) talk of the same, except of course the mainstream media ignores it (pointedly not refuting it)

    • It’s absolutely true.
      I remember reading it when I was a child, in a history magazine.
      It said Gandhi had this habit already when he visited Europe.
      Mind, I do not think anything happened, but I find it off anyway. I think it was more a form of spiritual pride: “I do it, because I can”.
