What the Secular Media
Doesn´t Know about Pope Francis

American Thinker, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:tinnyanko, 9/22/2013 7:18:33 AM

In recent columns in the mainstream press, columnists have been distorting gleefully the Pope´s recent statements to make it appear he´s the liberal that will bring the Catholic Church in line with their own agenda. In actuality, Pope Francis is no more likely to approve gay marriage or homosexual activity than any other pope. If the media were less agenda-driven, they would be trying to debunk a miracle that defies explanation and which involves Pope Francis when he was a bishop in Argentina in 1996.

OMG. Unbelievably fascinating

A perfect article to read first thing Sunday morning. It is what we Catholics believe even without scientific evidence. We believe it to be true based on Faith. What an interesting read!

Most of the article has little to do with the Pope´s theology nor does it address his non-orthodox recent statements.

Lots of media hype and wishful thinking. The Pope is Catholic not Episcopalian so don´t get your hopes up.

FTA - "I certainly would find investigation of this 1996 discovery more interesting than whether the Pope is a radical liberal."

Well, I wouldn´t. I think the question of whether the Pope is a radical liberal is far more pressing than some dime-a-dozen miraculous tall tale. The Church is swarming with those, and the fact that it´s taken no steps to officially approve it tells me all I need to know. One more Medjugorje is not big news.

Miracles aside, there´s an article online entitled "The Parable of the Papal Interview" that compares the interview with the Parable of the Sower and the Seed.

Some of words of the interview fell on the media who could not understand the context.

It was written by Joanne McPortland on Patheos if you are interested in reading it.

This is not one of Alicia´s best articles. First, she is using a possible Eucharistic miracle to divert us from discussing the Pope´s surprising interview. That is a sleight of hand trick done by leftists as a matter of course. Not good. Second, the question arises, Is she trying to tie Pope Francis to this miracle, as if it somehow has something to do with him? Badly done.

#15 ~ being an anti-papist doesn´t make you a troll ~ sometimes it simply means you are probably a Calvinist or maybe any one of the various heads of churches in the East we refer to as Orthodox!

The best way to deal with Francis is probably to recognize that he was a worker in the field (Latin America), and he´s undoubtedly well-versed in the politics, culture and meaningful discussions in that part of the world ~ then recognize that growing up as an Italian-Argentinian under a variety of fascist dictatorships doesn´t really turn you into an Italian-Italian, and certainly not an Episcopalean.

For example, NATO probably never entered into a single thought in his entire life ~ until now. Still waiting on what he has to say about that defense organization! Bet it´s a doozy.

Using a miracle to divert from the issue of the Pope selling out the truth of the Word to make it fit his own agenda is smoke and mirrors. The antichrist will do miracles, not calling the Pope the antichrist, I´m just making a point. This Pope has an agenda inline with the NWO bunch. I would take off my blind loyalty to Catholicism hat and exchange it for a love of truth above all things hat. In Matthew 24, Jesus warns us about deception, not once but three times in the same passage. And in Romans 1 we are warned what happens if we exchange the truth for a lie. Wiser not to follow any man, but rather follow truth.

Recall briefly that much before the 1500s everybody was a Catholic in the West. I can trace back to two popes, three anti-popes, and a wide variety of folks who were Huguenots who sought union of Brittany with Spain (of all places).

All is not as straightforward as we might imagine it to be. Catholics are good folks as are Protestants.

#12 nails it. Jesuits are lefties and the reason much of South America is socialist has to do with the predominance of that order there. He was chosen pope for that reason. This isn´t a secret. It´s a well known fact. Of course, this doesn´t mean he will endorse all the left´s nonsense, same sex marriage, abortion, corn fed cars, etc., but it´s a start. Remember they play the long game.

I just wrote a long skeptical post about this article, but my browser had the good sense to crash itself before I hit "post." I can take a hint. Instead, for the delightful Alicia and all our Catholic friends on Lucianne.com, I offer this:

He said to them, "Where the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together." (Luke 37:17).

Why so hostile, #6? "Miraculous tall tale" is a bit over the top even for a secular humanist.

Miracles do exist. They happen every day, and you can find them if your radar is on. Secular humanists don´t have that radar and so they deny the existence of the supernatural.

I don´t know if this heart miracle is a hoax or not, but I do know of other events that have happened that are simply outside scientific examination.

Our five senses and our scientific technology have not registered activity beyond their limitations. Ask any dog and it will tell you that human beings are limited in what they can experience.

The realm of the supernatural is not accessible to those God chooses to hide it from.

As for the Pope and his liberalism, I don´t think he´s about to go Marxist on his Church.

I do believe in miracles. But the Church hasn´t authenticated this event as one, and so I´m not obliged to give it any credence. There are good reasons for the lengthy procedures and rules of evidence developed over the centuries to declare something a miracle. Every year there are stories about Jesus´s face appearing in a taco or on a cracked cement floor; the ignorant come flocking to witness the "miracle" and are easy pickings for con artists. When people are ripped off or made fools of, it damages their faith, and it damages the Church in the eyes of the world. And like #12 I dislike the author´s implicit linking of Bergoglio with this "miracle", as if it somehow reflects well on him. There´s altogether too much giddy fan-worship of the man which I don´t share in the slightest; I do get hostile if his boosters are upping the ante to suggest he´s now some sort of miracle-worker.

Walking by Faith here. No need to witness or believe in such things for me to believe in, or have a personal relationship with, God.

Also not interested in ´miracles´ performed by humans (i.e.: Pope, preachers, evangelists, others).

I do believe miracles happen every day and they are performed by God. Perhaps he uses someone to work through, but they don´t make the miracle happen.

True Christians pay no heed to this story. If it´s true, it doesn´t matter. If it´s false, it doesn´t matter either.

In May, 2008, an Islamic scholar in Skokie, IL, saw squirrels knock a piece of bark off a tree. He picked it up and on the back side saw the word "Mohammed" carved by insects. (Source: Chicago Tribune). In July, 2008, a statue of Shirdi Sai Baba, an Indian yoga guru from the 19th Century revered by Moslems and Hindus alike, suddenly opened its eye. (Source: Share International, 11/28) Thousands of people claim to have seen rays of light emanating from statues of Buddha in Sri Lanka. (Source: Agence France-Presse. The point is -- such phenomena is not restricted to Christian, let alone R.C. doctrine. As the world skids to its end, Jesus says that more and more of these things will occur as the devil desperately tries to round up all he can before the End: "23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect."(Matthew 24:23-24). St. Paul reminds us not to seek signs or "wisdom" but rather focus on Christ crucified. (I Corinthians 1:23-24). What these "miracles" can do for us is to remind us that Christ´s words are true. And as people go running off claiming to see Christ in a potato chip or a Communion wafer or a seashell, they are fulfilling prophecy that the world is soon to end; an admonition to us to "examine ourselves to see if our faith is genuine."(2 Corinthians 13:5)

Nowhere in this article does the author try and link the Pope as responsible for doing anything other then documenting it as he should have. It is merely informative so why complain about that? I´ve done additional research which shows that testing on the shroud and other relics show the same DNA. Note that the church is not pushing any ´miracle´ It takes forever because it´s till a matter of faith alone.

My trust is in God. I am still trying to understand Pope Francis. I know better than to trust the Jesuits but Pope Francis apparently did too. We shall see.

In the meantime this video sheds much needed light on certain alliances and helped me to understand a few things I found confounding:

The Catholic Church...plus Alinsky..and Bernadine...and Notre Dame...gave us Obama.
Now it makes sense... And we need to fight this evil..yes evil.

To bring the discussion back to PF1: did anybody here actually read the 12,000 word interview?

The full text can be found in the U.S. publication American Magazine (www.americamagazine.org) and in the UK based online journal Thnking Faith (www.thinkingfaith.org)

It´s profound, warm, and beautiful: I didn´t think there´s anything in it that an Evangelical Christian couldn´t enthusiastically endorse or at least understand favorably; and there´s plenty there to challenge left and right alike.

It glorifies Jesus Christ and radiates goodwill toward people of goodwill whomever they may be.

The liberal media have done their usual cultural vandalism on it: select, discard, crop, and frame. If you real the whole thing I assure you it will be well worth your time.

#11 – Welcome home to the Mother Church.

Over the last two millennium there have been scores of Eucharistic miracles that have been preserved and are still in existence today, with Lanciano being the most famous. Many of those from the early centuries (including Lanciano) have had modern testing done. All of these miracles have in common the AB positive blood type, confirmation of heart tissue, and the male identity. If any or all were hoaxes, how could miraculous Eucharistic wafers from the 8th, 10th, 11th, 14th, and now 21st, centuries all carry the same scientific markers when the purported “hoaxers” had no knowledge of such things? How can centuries old human blood and tissue still be in existence without modern preservation?

The Catholic Eucharist IS the Body and Blood of Christ. Our Lord, in His mercy, effects these miracles for the benefit of the faithful. Pope Francis, in this instance as the presiding bishop, oversaw the investigation. Ms. Colon is very clear about that and in no way even infers that the miracle was brought about through him.

I have taught adult converts in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) for nine years and I always teach about the historic miracles of His True Presence. Too see the glowing faces of converts upon reception of their First Holy Communion is the greatest blessing of my life.

As to whether or not Pope Francis is an agent of the New World Order and communistic ideology is yet to be proved. Read his own words in context to discern for yourself. One example that has been cited by critics (although not on this thread) is Pope Francis’ statement that a person who does not believe in God can still enter Heaven. This is true. There are many who belong to Christ who do not necessarily belong to the Church. For example: What of those persons who do not ever hear the Gospel or even the name of Jesus? What if they live as good, thoughtful, kind and generous people from their own conscience? Would they not be welcome by Our Lord? Prior to Vatican II critics lambasted the Church for the teaching that only the Baptized could enter heaven; now they lambaste the Church for opening the doors. Go to the source and read the Catechism of the Catholic Church and don’t depend upon the secular media for an explanation of doctrine.

" What of those persons who do not ever hear the Gospel or even the name of Jesus? What if they live as good, thoughtful, kind and generous people from their own conscience? Would they not be welcome by Our Lord?"

This is an example of human reasoning trying to trump God´s Word. We are mere clay; He is the Potter. When God´s Word says that there is no other name under heaven by which we are saved other than Jesus Christ - that´s what it is. We don´t need to blush at what God says; He can defend Himself quite readily. We have no right to understand God´s wisdom. What we have is His Word. That´s enough. He does not demand understanding; He requires acceptance. There is a danger in using human reasoning; it´s idolatry - it´s saying, "I know how God is. My God would never do...such and such..." The Catholic Church is not immune to such doctrine by human reasoning. Why is Mary holy - it´s not found in the Bible? No, but human reasoning tells us that God would never allow the vessel that would contain His Son, be contaminated by sin... That´s just one example of human reasoning being used to try and "trump" God´s Word. But God´s Word cannot be trumped. I agree with Timber Queen that one should "Go to the source", but that "source" is not the Catechism of the Catholic Church; it´s the Holy Bible.

Thank you #20. Your comments are refreshing. Too often threads related to Catholicism are somewhat painful because they bring out the worst in some of our fellow L-dotters. In this case, it occurs to me that the criticism reflects fear. If this is truly a miracle - and none of us know yet- some people apparently would be threatened by it. How unfortunate. I view Christians as a group united by faith, but find it disconcerting that some of my fellow Christians don´t share that belief. They declare that Catholics are evil.

but that "source" is not the Catechism of the Catholic Church; it´s the Holy Bible.

Where in the Bible does it say that the Bible is the sole source (sola scriptura)?

You are no doubt aware that the Bible is a collection of books compiled by the Catholic Church - under the guidance of the Holy Spirit determined which writings were inspired.

Before the existence of the Bible, there was an oral tradition and writings of the Church Fathers - some of whom were contemporaries of the apostles.

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that should be written. John 21:25.

Protestants took the Bible and decided to do their own thing - with multiple interpretations of the same text. You each have your own "truth."

There is only one truth.

#30 – Not all Protestant denominations believe the Eucharist “represents” the body and blood of Jesus; some Protestant denominations believe the Eucharist “is” the body and blood of Jesus. It is the true body and blood, in and under the bread and wine which Christians are commanded by the Word of Christ to eat and to drink. It is the Word and ordinance or command of God; not invented by man, but instituted by Christ.

#41 – The basis of Sola Scriptura: Scripture is authoritative because it is God’s Word; authority that is absolute and final. The assertions, commands and promises are God’s promises. Christ accepted the absolute authority of the prophetic Word of the Old Testament and He guaranteed the absolute authority of the apostolic Word of the New Testament by His promise of the Holy Spirit to His apostles.

The “Protestant” Bible came about because there was an urgent need to give voice to the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to teach and give witness to this Gospel.

Thanks for the challenge, #41. God´s Word VS Man´s Wisdom. Take a look at Galatians 1:6-12. St. Paul is warning about accepting other Gospels than the True Gospel. The True Gospel is of course, John 3:16. When a church tradition or council teaches that one is saved by the law, ie. doing good works, that is another Gospel, for it directly contradicts Ephesians 2:8-9. Why sola Scriptura? Jesus Himself states that the Scripture cannot be broken. (John 10:35). I Corinthians 2:13 Paul declares that what He preaches is God´s Word, not man´s wisdom. Furthermore, regarding the canon - the criteria for determining which of the hundreds of books should be included in the Bible was fourfold: 1. Is the writing of Apostolic origin or even that of a close 1st Century companion of the apostles? 2. Is it universally accepted? 3. Is it used liturgically? 4. Is there a consistent message with other Christian writings? Not all the books in the RC Bible meet those criteria according to the Protestants and that´s why the Bibles are different. For example, "Bel and the Dragon" cannot be of equal caliber as the Epistle to the Romans. Yes, there is "one truth" - Jesus spells it out: "Thy Word is Truth." (John 17:17)

George Orwell gave us a look at the operation of a totalitarian one-party state in 1984. This week Mozilla gave us a look at its nascent liberal variant. Recently appointed CEO Brandon Eich was officially made a nonperson. He was dispatched down the memory hole as the company announced that he has “step[ped] down from his role as CEO” as a result of his contribution of $1,000 to the passage of California’s Prop 8 six years ago.

Team Obama’s plan to rally the “Millennials” to sign up for Obamacare by pushing less-than-intellectual celebrities in their face hit a snag on Wednesday when Lance Bass, a member of the lapsed boy band N-Sync, tweeted the wrong Web address to his 300,000 followers on Twitter, sending them to “Healthcare.org.” ABC News said he went to the White House to "lend his voice to President Obama’s ongoing efforts to encourage young people to sign up for health care through the government exchange." After mockery ensued, Bass went to Twitlonger to tell the haters to “grow up,” as if grown-ups always mangle

On Wednesday´s New Day, CNN´s Chris Cuomo played up how Florida Republican David Jolly´s campaign played The Price is Right theme music at his victory rally on Tuesday, and remarked that its use was somehow a perfect sign of the influence of big money in political races: "What a metaphor for what politics has become – that they are playing the theme song of The Price is Right when they celebrate a victory, because it´s about the money! It makes me sick." What Cuomo didn´t realize is that the former host of The Price is Right, Bob Barker, endorsed Jolly. NewsBusters

In recent columns in the mainstream press, columnists have been distorting gleefully the Pope´s recent statements to make it appear he´s the liberal that will bring the Catholic Church in line with their own agenda. In actuality, Pope Francis is no more likely to approve gay marriage or homosexual activity than any other pope. If the media were less agenda-driven, they would be trying to debunk a miracle that defies explanation and which involves Pope Francis when he was a bishop in Argentina in 1996.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
