In the latest news, the Pope donated a whopping $500,000 for the migrants who are stranded in Mexico. In 2018, he donated his car for search and rescue charity. He also donated $1000,000 to the victims of the earthquake in Indonesia.
Commendable, we’re sure—but we’re also sure this isn’t the be-all and end-all. Beginning from the pre-conclave speech to his many public appearances, the Pope comes off as a man with a mission.
But before we can talk about the mission, let’s dissent something that doesn’t exist: unfettered capitalism.
A popular term and very liberal socialist in its essence, a simple Google search will show that liberal socialists use the term “unfettered capitalism” to describe the United States. However, going by this definition, there’s a new addition in the ranks of liberal socialists, beginning with the Pope.
In 2013, Pope Francis used this term accompanied by the phrase “dung of the devil.” In short, where the liberal socialists praised him for not mincing his words, others caught on to what he was up to: unfettered Marxism, coming straight out of his mouth. His 84-page apostolic exhortation calls for people to fight global inequality and poverty, and to counter this “new tyranny.”
And it doesn’t stop at that.
Perhaps one would think that the Pope would stop at preaching his core ideologies so publicly but no, there’s more and far more dark work afoot. The shocker came in 2016 when the Pope planted Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal as the general superior of the Jesuits. Sosa is a renowned Marxist, and has in the past tried to counter traditional Christian teachings by writing about the “Marxist mediation of the Christian Faith.”
And no matter where you turn your head to in the Vatican, you’ll find a Marxist lurking beneath—and it’s mostly the Pope’s handiwork that abets it. From the Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga to British sociologist Margaret Archer and from theologian Leonardo Boff to Naomi Klein, many Marxists and communists in positions of power seem to have got there with the Pope’s blessing.
And this heralds perilous times.
With communists in such huge numbers scattered not just within the Vatican but around the world, wherever the Church is concerned, one wonders if the Christian doctrine is under threat. With a figure such as that of the Pope himself endorsing ideas that go directly beyond Christian thought, the times ahead surely look dark.
Many of these newly appointed persons—Sosa in particular—are all on board publicizing the climate change mantra, and touting their modernistic and liberal ideas. Sosa has, in fact, expressed the desire to “interpret” and “contextualize” what is said in the Bible—this is nothing but a sugar-coating of the attempt to rewrite the Bible for personal gains.
China over Church
2018 was a shocking and depressing year for most Christians as Pope Francis abandoned an underground Church to curry favor with China’s Communist Government. Chinese Catholics were lost, even issuing an open letter to the Pope in a desperate plea for mercy and consideration. Newspapers called it a “historic deal” with China—critics called it a “sell-out.”
Under this new “historic” deal, the Communist government in China controls the nomination and appointment of Bishops, and can be expected to meddle in matters of religion—matters not even remotely concerning this largely atheistic country. One can only expect the consequences to go beyond crude communist propaganda—it’s the sheep that will suffer most. Under Communist rule, the ruled have little say—and the Pope just agreed to that.
