ROME — As he flew near Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricane Irma on his way back to the Vatican from Colombia on Sunday, Pope Francis said that political leaders and others who denied climate change reminded him of a passage from the psalms about man’s stubbornness. “Man is stupid, the Bible said,” he said. “It’s like that, when you don’t want to see, you don’t see.” In a typically wide-ranging news conference that included his questioning of United States President Donald J. Trump’s commitment to issues of life because of his plan to strip undocumented immigrant children of protections from
Comments: Just shut and preach and stay out of leftist politics!! I´m so sick of this Communist Pope. It further proves that the radical left has infiltrated the Catholic church. As is shown in the link below that has been the goal of the evil Soros and John Podesta. I´m not Catholic, but it sure makes me sick for all of those who are. https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2016/10/democrats-infiltrated-catholic-church/
Contd. It really is telling that he made comments while flying over the devastation in the Caribbean and didn´t care about those who suffered such destruction. Instead he used it as a forum for hateful, needless political rhetoric. Where is is concern and prayers for those poor devastated people? He´s just disgusting.
I don´t think it is simply the job of the Pope to shut up and pray or to even butt out of American politics. He is the head of the Catholic Church. In this sense, wherever evil resides he needs to confront it. If the US was involved in evil, like Hitler evil, he has a responsibility to speak out. Considering disputed science, he needs to leave it to the secular world. Abortion is an evil, not a mere American act. He needs to speak out. DACA is not an evil, it is the American political system at work. Not only is that none of his business, he is hypocritical, given his wall; and the hypocrisy is damaging to the Church. This Pope seem hellbent on blowing a great opportunity. He seems to be foundering. He seems to lack an coherent understanding of his role. He needs to focus on providing guidance on the evils of our times. To draw clear lines on those corrupting forces. He seems confused like I would be but not the Agent of God. We face much confusion and evil and we need a clear sighted leader whether we are Catholics or not. Dare I say he seems to be the victim of the Pete Principal?
I am a Catholic but every time this Pope opens his mouth he spews his leftist leanings. He is a communist at heart and I don´t think he likes the USA as he makes every effort to disrespect the American government and our POTUS.
I wish someone would ask the pope what happened to the billions of $$$ the climate change people , previously known as global warming, took from taxpayers. Did it cure anything? My guess it was spent on air travel, 5 star resorts & restaurants, TV ads.
Although the election of Pope Francis was VALID, it now seems to be an imprudent choice. Having said that, I am truly dismayed by the terribly disrespectful posts by Catholics and non-Catholics alike. I, too, am in agreement that this pontiff appears to be quite leftist in his leanings. If people are truly concerned about the truth than the most charitable thing for us is to PRAY that the RC Church survives this upheaval. FYI, Pope Emeritus Benedict lives within the Vatican walls and NOT at Castle Gandolfo. He is a saving grace for the church.
I also agree with the poster who noticed that the Pope, flying over all the ravaged and devastation of the Caribbean islands would not say something comforting for these poor people to strengthen them in the aftermath of Irma. No, Francis continues to strike out at us "climate deniers" and our POTUS for rejecting the illegal, and also, unconstitutional EO known as DACA!! As we know, Presidents DON´T LEGISLATE, CONGRESS DOES!! Let us continue to PRAY for all those people left in the paths of Harvey & Irma.
The whole "climate change" issue is all about pollution with the added bonus of looking for a new tax source (i.e. cap and trade).
The Paris Accords told us that, since only 0.17 C would be reduced if EVERY goal was met by EVERY nation - by the year 2100.
Would not likely be noticed by most people.
DACA, was an EO, by a president who repeatedly stated he didn´t have the authority to do what he did, but did it anyhow for political calculations, only to find out by the Courts it was unconstitutional, and now Democrats are suing over an unconstitutional EO to be followed regardless.
I would say, Your Holiness, that Jesus was referring to you and people like you, when he said, "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." You, Sir do not know of what you speak.
The directives given by St.Paul in Romans13, especially Verses1-7, “SubmissionToAuthorities,” make clear that God expects believers to obey government laws—except when government laws demand disobeying God’s commands. As St.Paul wrote, there is no authority except from God, so resisting governing authorities resists what God has appointed and will incur judgment. Illegal immigration is violating this country’s immigration laws and God’s expectation of obedience to laws. It may do well for the pope,politicians,mainstream media,GOPe, and Never-Trumpers to realize their scheming, scorn, and willful resistance to President Trump is scorning what God has put in place. God selects heads of nations.
BTW, the Catholic Church didn´t have a "pedophile" problem, it unfortunately had a homosexual problem with young adult males, not children. The percentage was small, but NO amount of abuse should ever be tolerated.
A federal court unsealed documents in a lawsuit over Fusion GPS’s bank records on Tuesday, revealing new details of payments made last year to the opposition research firm that commissioned the infamous Trump dossier. The documents also shed new light on requests made by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence about payments that Fusion GPS made to journalists. The records were unsealed in response to a ruling made last week by Richard Leon, a federal judge in the district court in Washington, D.C. The bank documents list 112 transactions involving Fusion GPS. Most are redacted, save for transactions between
Newly filed court documents confirm that Fusion GPS, the company mostly responsible for the controversial “Trump dossier” on presidential candidate Donald Trump, made payments to three journalists between June 2016 until February 2017. The revelation could be a breakthrough for House Republicans, who are exploring whether Fusion GPS used the dossier, which was later criticized for having inaccurate information on Trump, to feed anti-Trump stories to the press during and after the presidential campaign. The three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS are known to have reported on "Russia issues relevant to [the committee´s] investigation," the House Intelligence Committee
Some NFL owners believe there is a strong possibility they will enact an offseason change to the league’s national anthem policy if players’ protests during the anthem persist through the end of this season, reverting to a previous approach of keeping players in the locker room while the anthem is played, according to several people familiar with the league’s inner workings. “I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” said one person familiar with the owners’ deliberations on anthem-related issues. That person said it was “too early to
They just aren’t comfortable with “The Vietnam War,” the ambitious documentary by filmmaker Ken Burns, which debuted last month with much fanfare and is still being featured on many PBS stations. Vietnam Veterans for Factual History — a Texas-based interest group which includes military veterans, historians and authors in its membership — is challenging both the content and tone of the 10-episode, 18-hour epic. “Many in the Vietnam veteran community were deeply offended by the series. It correctly sees that war as the origin of the current cultural polarization in American society, and the intention was for the film to

The makers of Berger Cookies in Baltimore, Md., are concerned that that new rules will force them to discontinue their iconic cookie due to federal rules. Under current proposed rules, companies will no longer be allowed to sell food containing partially hydrogenated oils, which contain trans fats, after June 18, 2018. That rule will make it difficult for Charlie DeBaufre, president of DeBaufre Bakeries, to continue making the chocolate covered soft German-inspired cookies because the recipe contains trans fats. DeBaufre has not been able to create the Berger cookie taste without the using trans-fat-free ingredients.
The House Ethics Committee has opened an investigation into Michigan Democrat Rep. John Conyers, after it was revealed Monday that Conyers paid a former employee more than $27,000 in taxpayer funding after allegedly firing her for refusing his sexual advances. Sworn affidavits signed by former Conyers staffers portray him as a serial sexual predator who preyed on young, vulnerable female staffers. Conyers confirmed the settlement on Tuesday but denied any wrongdoing. “The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative John Conyers, Jr. may have engaged in sexual harassment of his staff,

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested in China for shoplifting while attending basketball tournament. UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the players stole from three stores in China including sunglasses stolen by LiAngelo Ball from a Louis Vitton store. They were facing 10 years in prison. President Trump asked President Xi Jinping for leniency. The three players were released. Thug life on display – After watching this bizarro interview with his father I can completely understand why LiAngelo Ball thought it would be perfectly okay to shoplift in China and live a life beyond
A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign.

ALBANY — Fox News host and TV judge Jeanine Pirro is heading to court herself after being ticketed for excessive speeding Sunday in upstate New York. State Police say Pirro was clocked driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone when she was stopped by a trooper at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County. A police source said she was driving a Cadillac. In a statement released by Fox News, Pirro said she was racing to see her sick mother in Elmira. “I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old
Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable. They don’t like when Northerners and liberals and people in Washington tell them who their senator should be. They don’t like when reporters from outside come down and ask questions and turn over rocks looking for what’s crawling on the underside. (Snip) The charges against Mr. Moore are not only serious; they are completely credible. If you read the original Washington Post story, you know it was rigorously reported, with great care and professionalism. Four women who did not seek out the press, who did
A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.
A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture
