Let us imagine you are a Commie and, incidentally, the Pope. One of the things you will do (besides being crass, vulgar and arrogant all the time, as befits an old resentful commie) is hating the rich. This even if, as the Pope, you now qualify as a Billionaire, even if with a couple of asterisks attached.
You are, we have just said, old, arrogant, vulgar and generally insufferable (this has to be, in a Commie Pope). This means you will deform the message of Christ at will in order to satisfy your hatred for the rich. It has to be so, because a commie Pope really can’t do it anything differently.
And so it can come to pass that said Pope travels to the UAE and conveniently forgets the “in spirit” part from the beatitudes. Blessed are the poor. That’s it.
Now, the man hates the rich, although with usual coherence he does not disdain the company of some Jet- owning individuals. He needs to appraise his audience of the fact. Therefore, he points out that many of the UAE Christians present at the usual open air mass are domestic workers of local rich people. Note here: the problem with the employers of said domestic workers is not that they are – as many of them will be – Muslims.
It is that they are rich.
Understand the man, please. He is a communist. Social hatred devours him. He does not believe in God, at all. What will he care if a man dies a Muslim? But that the man lives as a rich man, this is the problem.
All very much to be expected in a communist devoured by social hatred. I was not surprised at all by his latest, homemade commie doctrine. Once you understand Communism, social envy, and social hatred, Francis will be an open book to you.
What grates me is that countless Catholic publications will now try to give the words of an old commie a varnish of Catholicism, instead of admitting that the man just does not care a straw for Catholicism.
