Mr. Korf from Texas wanted to throw a rebuttal out to Mr. Farago and myself about the true intentions of his pope. That is fine. It’s his pope. He quoted a long statement by Pope Francis. However, I have chosen to focus on this quote. This is the quote that most conservatives and gun owners like myself and Mr. Farago focus on . . .
It makes me think one thing: people, leaders, entrepreneurs that call themselves Christians, and produce arms! This gives some mistrust: they call themselves Christians! “No, no, Father, I don’t produce them, no, no …. I only have my savings, my investments in arms factories.” Ah! And why? “Because the interest is somewhat higher …” And a double face is also a current coin today: to say something and do another. Hypocrisy …
I’m far from ignorant and spent much time being taught Catholic doctrine, so spare me. I’m actually a little surprised at how this can be taken any other way. Read it a few times. It reads that those that produce arms are hypocritical and cannot call themselves Christian. The actual quote is difficult perhaps because of the translations and grammar applied, but the feel is still there. It’s amazing that this turned into a religious debate. It’s not. This has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with one man’s words. That man happens to be the pope. Should we just pretend and ignore because he has a high religious position of power? I think not. And I’m not afraid to say it.
I have no issue with another Christian, Catholic, Mormon, Buddhist, Sikh, Baptist, Lutheran or any other religious denomination you can throw at me. I judge the pope on his words, not on his position. He is a socialist at best and a communist at worst. Look a little deeper. I am not the only person that has interpreted his readings as such. Even fellow Catholics say this pope scares them. (Google his views on the poor, global warming, and his willingness to bow to Islam).
I could share the dozens of links, but that will only ignite the flames and that’s not my intention. I want it known that my opinions are mine alone and not those of Mr. Farago or TTAG. I simply write what I feel. And I feel that pope Francis is a communist and is as corrupt as they get. (Check out how much the Vatican bank makes while you’re googling). I did not misinterpret his words. I believe others are irrationally supporting him. Again opinions are like….you know.
