The Hammer, The Sickle, And The Incompetent

Francis was allegedly “bewildered” at the blasphemous “gift” made to him by the Bolivian President, Evo Morales.

He must think you’re stupid.

It is completely obvious even to my (admittedly: very smart) cat that gifts by diplomatic meetings do not just “happen”, nor are they “surprises”. It’s not Christmas’ Eve.

On the contrary, gifts  (which have an obvious public, PR, or symbolic relevance) are always agreed in advance. It must be so, otherwise you would risk diplomatic incidents every time.

Therefore, I do not believe in the least that Francis – who wasn’t born yesterday, and can be the cunning scoundrel whenever he wants to –  just did not know that he would receive such a gift, or did not care to enquire what gift he would receive, or did not ask his diplomatic personnel to go absolutely on the safe side and check with him first. He knows very well there will be photos that will go around the world. Of all people, he should know best.

Such meetings are carefully prepared. Damn Morales is a head of state. It’s not that you leave it to your guest’s taste what you will be photographed with.

Then there is the obvious, obvious consideration that, whatever the reason for the blunder, Christ must come before diplomacy and it behooves the Pope to very publicly refuse the gift (yes, in front of the cameras, and all that) if he has been – because of some machination I cannot even imagine – surprised by it.

A Crucifix with a hammer and sickle is absolutely sickening, and if Francis is not sickened by it it is not surprising at all he can live in the midst of perverts; or better said, from one who lives in the midst of perverts it is not surprising at all that he would not be sickened by such a blasphemous “gift”.

To my knowledge, the “gift” has not been refused. No diplomatic incident has followed, and the Vatican has not accused the other side of surprising them with a non-agreed gift. If this were the case, the incident should be very public, and should lead to the refusal of the gift and the demand for public apology from the Bolivian government.

What we have, is the world photo-op of the friggin’ Communist head of state, Francis giving him a stage, and then trying to react to the obvious scandal by letting it be known that hey, he would have preferred a puppy.

But you see, this is what happens when you elect a Pope that blabbers about the poor all the time, and does not care a straw for Christ.

The enemies of Christ will sniff it all right, and will behave accordingly.

  1. It’s difficult to write this, but I feel I must. For two and a half years, I’ve watched this South American socialist degrade and denigrate the Catholic Church. Even my Father, who doesn’t follow this topic as closely as I, has noted what so many of us have. Pope Francis never speaks about faith and morals. It’s always about how capitalism is evil (now it’s the “dung of the devil”) or about climate change. Maybe he speaks about actual religious topics, but they’re never the first or even the second thing out of his mouth.

    As so many have suggested, I’ve prayed the Rosary and asked God to help this pope find his footing, but it seems with each day things only get worse. To accept a crucifix mounted to a communist symbol is blasphemous. Can anyone imagine Pius XII, who excommunicated those who helped communists, doing such a thing? Of course not. He would have refused to touch such a thing. And to make matters worse, Morales was quoted today as saying Francis is a true socialist.

    And while this week has seen such terrible events as using a Burger King as a sacristy, we’ve still got Francis’ trip to visit Obama in America and the Synod on the Family to come this Fall. Only God knows what embarrassments will come from those two events. I know I certainly shudder at what may come. Yet while I and many others shudder, Maradiaga, Marx, and even the smiling Tagle wait in the wings hoping to take things even farther.

    Regrettably, I now find myself seriously wondering whether it’s time for this Pope to be deposed. With a few more years and another round of Cardinal stormtroopers named, things could be inalterably changed for several generations or more. God has said the gates of Hell will not prevail, but he never promised we wouldn’t have an idiot for a Pope. I’m just one voice in the wilderness, but where are the “conservative” Cardinals and Bishops? How can they sit back as this travesty unfolds in front of them? Shouldn’t their vows to the Church require them to act in some way?

  2. I don’ t agree with you in that diplomatic gifts are always agreed in advance. If that were the case, this gift had not seen the light. This absurd gift doesn’ make any favour neither Evo (why getting himself more enemies among the mainly catholic, bolivian population?) nor the Pope (why getting more enemies among conservative catholics? ). Really, I don’t ser the point. Honestly, I find this gift (one important detail is that the author of the piece was a jesuit, murdered priest) absolutely stupid.

    • You make an absurd comment based on an absurd fantasy of yours.
      Gifts are agreed in advance. Fact.
      The gift is useful to the Bolivian Government. “Today Jesus would be a Marxist” (or, even, “Jesus was always a Marxist”) is the message here.

  3. Hola Mundy,

    I haven’t posted on your website for a good while…because I’ve had nothing particularly new and improved to contribute to the general conversation, as it were.

    But going back several years, to the beginning of his papacy, I consistently posited to you that it was pretty probable that Francis Imbroglio was some sort of combination of evil, drunkard, pervert, or drug abuser. Or all of the above.

    Now, Frankie Goes to Hollywood has definitely revealed himself as evil – at least. I swear he was emotionally touched by the gifts he received from his Bolivian Buttboy pal…Frankie was overwhelmed in gratitude and humility to receive that vile and evil cross. He could have cried with inner joy…that’s what I saw. He was thrilled.

    Mundabor, you are telling it like it is. This youtube video shows Francis smiling repeatedly just after he has received the blasphemous item and is shown the original large one (from 50seconds on).

  5. We are stupid. How many people noticed the Burger King commercial on prime time news. (Burger King – home of the”Proud Whopper”) where he vested for Mass in Bolivia.

  6. All gifts to His Holiness must be first checked to by his p r staff to determine if they are suitable. If not they should be returned. This should be a matter of course. I am tired of these insults. When the Queen of England presented him with a few wilted cabbages from the Palace Garden or whatever she may as well have kicked him in the shins. Both of these gifts from Heads of State were deliberate insults and should not be tolerated.

  7. Thank you for calling me stupid. Never mind. You don’ t have any proof that the gifts are always agreed in advance Moroever, USA’ s friends always think that socialism is identical to marxism. Bolivia is not the URSS and Evo Morales is not Stalin, I am sorry. The gift is absolutely inadequate, and comunism is blaphemous. OK. But be careful, because I don’ t find capitalism much better, it also has killed millions all over the world. The supposed respect to human rights is everything but perfect. I wonder which will be the gift of the american president to the pope during their next meeting. But no problem, capitalism doesn’ t have such an explicit symbol to feel escandalizad for.

  8. Of course, all “gifts” and every other detail of a papal meeting, particularly between two Heads of State, are all agreed between the two sides months in advance. These are highly planned, highly formalised and formulaic events. There is no spontaneity or “surprises”. Officials’ heads would roll for “surprises”. The pope would have signed off on gifts and presentations by a Head of State well in advance. The average man must know this. The darkening of the intellect and willingness to accept irrational excuses shows the extent to which people have been made stupid, and easily manipulated and controlled.

  9. The evil cross Mr. Morales gave to pope Frankie is surely a sign of re-identifying him as a commie. No leaders in the world have that kind of stupidity to insult the head of the Catholic Church unless he or she knows exactly what the pope is? Must be his or her comrade. In the year 1939 communist party of USA had send many high ranking members to colleges and universities encouraged young members joining Christian churches especially Catholic’s. They would stay hidden as moles until they get enough power to undermine, destroy the Church from inside. I have always believe that Pope Francis is one of them. May Lord Jesus Christ stops this pope and his gang.
