Pope Criticizes Climate Change
Deniers and Trump on DACA

New York Times, by Jason Horowitz

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Come clean now....the Marxists have taken hold of the Vatican and your faith, though pure as the wind driven snow, cannot change this sorry state of affairs.

And, yes, I do not worry for the physical health and welfare of his Ex-Holiness but only use this as an allegory for Holy Mother, the Church, itself.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are

Lawrence O’Donnell had a really bad night on August 29, 2017.We draw that conclusion based on the above clip obtained by Mediaite, showing behind the scenes footage of a furious O’Donnell absolutely going bananas in what appear to be breaks in his show.The video, which lasts a full eight minutes, is a collection of clips from one evening (given O’Donnell’s consistent outfit) and show the MSNBC anchor fuming about earpiece malfunctions, blasting off obscenities and screaming at his staff. We were able to link it back to the August 29 show. After introducing a clip about President Donald Trump, O’Donnell pauses,
