First, remember how fun it is to remind the “Christian” Left that their new Socialist BFF is still anti-abortion and pro-real marriage. They love the Pope for agreeing with their anti-biblical economic policies, but ask them to convince you that they’d care what the Pope said about science if he disagreed with them. Or have them ask the Pope how he feels about killing unwanted children then selling their body parts.
But there’s more! And it is much more important. His extremism will cause many Catholics to reconsider their religious views. Example: Politics: So, the Catholic Church has a major problem right now. …And the Pope is only a part of it | Best of Cain.
The Pope is as well-versed on basic economic concepts and climate change as he is on the foundations for his role and on the solas. While the Catholic organization is pretty explicit on not letting people take a cafeteria approach to its beliefs, lots of people look the other way on the Papal infallibility thing and other doctrines they don’t care for. But this guy is getting so far off the rails that more people will reconsider everything he stands for.
It is sad how he and his fellow Leftists want to pull up the drawbridge on the poor and not let them have electricity and other things that would dramatically improve their standard of living. But it is for the good of the poor, right?
