Castroites Like Each Other
Raul Castro stated, in simple words, that if Francis continues in his ways he might go back to the Church.
Slimy old fox.
What he means is that if Francis keeps being a 100% Castroite, Raul will co-opt him in his own organisation by way of fake conversion.
The words of the man leave no doubt. It is not Catholicism that “impressed” Raoul. It's Francis. But Francis is a Castroite. Therefore, Raul Castro was impressed by Francis' implicit, but open, support of his ideology.
Also, the man does not say he might be getting the faith. His possible “conversion” would not mean that he believes in God. It would mean that he believes in Francis. He would continue to be as much of an atheist as he has always been. As a result, Raoul's assertions only mean that he has understood one thing: that Francis is one of them.
But let us now play this game and let us imagine that Raul truly converts to Catholicism. Would Francis ask him if he now believes in God, or would he be simply satisfied that his social grievances have found another admirer? All of you, I am sure, know the answer.
The Evil Clown has now another – self-interested – ticket holder for his Evil Circus. We register the news without any surprise, albeit with great scandal. Once again, the Evil Clown has chosen the side of the godless. Once again, there will be no scarcity of people ready to praise him for that.
All signs point out to the fact that Francis will die the enemy of orthodox Carholics, and the friend of the likes of Raul Castro.
What this would mean for his salvation, I will leave to your imagination.
