Francis Is Evil, Ignorant And Stupid, Not Demented
The question has recently been posed whether Francis is gaga. Easy as it is to call him a nincompoop, the obvious answer is no, he isn't.
There is method in what Francis does. It is merely his extreme ignorance of everything (from history to theology, and from canon law to simple logic) that lets him appear at times as if he had a screw or three lose.
Imagine the most ignorant, arrogant, anti-clerical old Communist man in any South American biggish village. Picture him as he pontificates about things he doesn't know, hates the Church, loathes the churchgoers, despises the Catholic customs and traditions, is at war with the rich, the powerful, the educated people who always despised his hateful ignorance. Close your eyes and see him swearing in the tavern, in the public square, in the queue at the grocery store. Picture him in vivid colours. We all have known at least one like him.
That man has become Pope.
Francis is not simply one who talks like him. Francis is him. Like the ignorant boor he is, he thinks he is the best thing since Juan Peron. Like the old, spiteful village hater, he will open his mouth everytime he feels like it. Like him, he will take revenge of everyone who dislikes him every time he can.
This is the simple reality of this Pope, for everyone to see. An unspeakable boor has been elected Pope, and it is all too obvious that he would behave like one.
There is no need for theories, because what we see every day is explanation enough.
