I usually only have enough ecumenical indignation (how's that for an oxymoron?) to berate one religious leader per quarter. I'm clearly over my quota now because here I am writing about Barack Obama and Pope Francis again, and that's two religious leaders for the second time this week. What is the world coming to?
The repetition is unavoidable because Pope Francis has accomplished exactly what I knew he would. Through his 200 plus pages of EVANGELII GAUDIUM, Pope Francis has provided a papal beard for totalitarians to push their Leftist agendas to the demise of individual liberty as if it was God's plan for all mankind to live under the boot heel of authoritarianism…well, all mankind except for Harry Reid's staffers who clearly require an exemption from the whole sordid mess.
Here's my take on Pope Francis's EVANGELII GAUDIUM if you missed it. I'm linking to it because it lays the foundation for my argument that this Proclamation of the Gospel poses a grave danger not only to liberty, rugged individualism and free will, but to the United States as it was founded and the Catholic Church as it was founded.
