The man who´s taught the world the

Could Francis be the greatest Pope ever?

Daily Mail [UK], by Guy Adams

Question: Who was the most talked about person in the world this year? Answer: Not Justin Bieber, Prince George or even Nelson Mandela, but a small, grey-haired man from Argentina called Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Known since March 13 as Pope Francis, the spectacle-wearing 77-year-old was 2013’s most discussed human being, according to the Global Language Monitor’s annual survey of the internet. The accolade lays bare his astounding ability--unique among modern religious leaders--to shape the news agenda and capture hearts and minds with a succession of charismatic speeches and colourful public gestures. Yesterday, Francis drew a near record crowd estimated at

Comments:
Sounds as if he´s more popular than You-Know-Who. Hmmm. Just realized how demeaning to Pope Francis that is. Leona Helmsley was more popular than YKW. /s

He is the man chosen for the times. I remember when the world fell in love with Pope John XXIII for all the wrong reasons. Don´t be fooled by labels that the media comes up with or with words that do not come from his mouth but theirs. The devil is working overtime to discredit him with lies. He is a good man and that is why he is Pope.

#1, the pope has never called for the redistribution of wealth. He has opined against the worship of money and rampant materialism as it applies to the capitalist system, not against capitalism itself. He has also argued against materialism as it applies to Marxism. He is simply practicing what Jesus and his namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, preached.

He spoke up and said he is no Marx when there was concern about his letter on capitalism. Why not speak up on the duck dynasty issue and inform everone what the teaching of the church is. If all the problems in the world are solved if we get rid of the free enterprise system will that end all the problems of greed. Is there no greed when people game the welfare system or leaders like obama take from the producers use the money to buy votes.

There has been many conflicting reports on the Pope´s views on capitalism.

I am a capitalist, with the following caveat:

I believe a person has the right to do with their money as they see fit, but men like Bill Gate et al, whom see money as the scoreboard of life; that is, the more stored the bigger the winner, is a detriment to society.

No, I don´t think they should give most of it to the poor nor that governments should take it from them, but they should use it to better mankind, by building and staffing special universities to teach ´free´ special student, and fully fund serious research facilities specializing in medicine, and other sciences, as a few examples . . ., Not just token billions here and there to construct edifices to themselves.

Loved Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, and they were both humble men. They had different personalities from each other and from Pope Francis, but were more orthodox and the MSM would like to pretend that they never existed, but God´s in charge, and if He should decide to reshape the news agenda, He could do it in a millisecond.

The Pope made a comment that to the liberals came across as Socialist. They believe that the Catholics will now fall into line with their own beliefs. The real meaning of Christianity is a mystery to most of them.

We´ve had some great popes and we´ve had some not so great popes, but I´m with the previous poster. Peter will always stand above them all, both as a pope and as a roll model for all Christians. He denied Christ, but was forgiven. We deny Christ, yet, we too, can be forgiven. I have loved all the popes of my life time. Each was called by God for a particular time and a particular reason that only God knows. Papa Francisco was called and will serve as God called him to do. AMDG.

Over the last couple of days, the internet security community has been rocked by a truly gargantuan bug, which has been named "Heartbleed" by the researchers who have discovered it.

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months. Only 10 days ago, the president ignored her as he took a victory lap when the Affordable Care Act´s signup numbers crested above 7 million. But he had kind words for the health insurance warrior in her final public appearance as a federal government employee. [Snip] Now that she´s no longer Obama´s ham-fisted insurance surrogate, plagued with ´oops´ moments in one congressional hearing after another, it´s smiles all around.

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box. The book was due for publication this autumn and Townsend had sent “a few wonderful pages” to her editor, Louise Moore, earlier this year. It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

Bill Clinton would do just about anything for daughter Chelsea--and it seems to extend to stumping for her mother-in-law, a Congressional candidate embroiled in a scandal over the use of charitable funds to feather her own nest. The former president sang the praises of Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, the mother of Chelsea’s husband Marc Mezvinsky, at a $5,000-a-pop private VIP fund-raiser on her behalf held today at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. An audience of 100 paid $1,000 each for the privilege of hearing President Clinton extoll the political virtues of Margolies. Another 50 donors paid $5,000 to get their

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that 7.5 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare insurance coverage by the time the dust settled on April 1, but reused to tell senators how many of them were already covered before the law took full effect. The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards. President Barack Obama promised that his signature insurance overhaul law would dramatically reduce the ranks of the

Holder went off-script Wednesday during a speech to Al Sharpton´s National Action Network, slammed Republicans for consistently attacking him and Barack Obama because they are the first African-Americans to hold their jobs. ´What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?´ he said, alluding to his status as the only African-American ever to hold that post.

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of
