Pope Francis: ‘Sad People
Are Not Christians’

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 12/1/2019 6:32:46 AM

The first Christians were not complainers, Pope Francis said Saturday, because “sad people are not Christians.” “We think of the first Christians, who had everyone against them, who were persecuted and yet they didn’t complain about the world,” the pope told participants in an international conference on evangelization taking place in Rome. “Reading the New Testament, we see that they were not concerned with defending themselves against an empire that put them to death, but with announcing Jesus, even at the cost of their lives,” he said. The pontiff also had strong words against defeatism and pessimism, urging his hearers to be joyful in witnessing to Christ.

Comments:

The Bible says that Jesus was “a man of sorrows.“ I guess The founder of Christianity wasn’t a Christian by the Pope’s standards.

Does Pope Marxist I believe Jesus went to a disco in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights? Does he ever read the Bible? Does he believe that Jesus was lying when He talked about how many times he would be denied? (For some reason, I remember the words of a parody written by Tom Lehrer, dealing with Vatican II, called The Vatican Rag.)(Pope John 23 had suggested liturgical songs that were more hip.) First you get down on your knees, fiddle with your rosaries, bow your head with great respect, then genuflect, genuflect genuflect! ... Make a cross on your abdomen, when in Rome do like the Romans, Ave Maria, gee its good to see ya, Doing the Vatican Rag! I believe the song is available on Youtube. It will brighten your day if you google it.

Forgive second post, but I'm pretty sure I read that when this Pope went to Germany to study for his doctorate as part of his studies for the priesthood that he returned home because he found it boring. I do not believe this man is well-schooled in the faith. He's no Pope Benedict XVI. You sometimes feel he was selected not elected.

It is sad that this man is not a follower of God and His word. God said to not change His word, and He means it. This pope follows another more insidious path designed to mislead from faith, rather than reinforce faith.. You can't have it both ways Frank, slapping Christians one day, then bemoaning the fact that not everyone is Christian the next.

This brings the number of checks for January 1, 2019 through November to 25,432,856, which is roughly 2.1 million away from a record.

University of North Carolina Law School professor Michael Gerhardt will testify Wednesday at the House Judiciary Committee that President Donald Trump is guilty of impeachable offenses, according to a prepared version of his opening statement published by PBS. Gerhardt is one of three Democrat “expert” witnesses invited to testify on the first day of impeachment inquiry hearings in the committee. Republicans were allowed to invite one. In his statement, Gerhardt will claim that “the record compiled thus far shows that the president has committed several impeachable offenses, including bribery, abuse of power in soliciting a personal favor from a foreign leader to benefit his political campaign, obstructing Congress, and obstructing justice.”

RUSH: The other big news of the day, there’s a Washington Post story, and it has another famous, anonymous source. We don’t know who the source is. And the story says the attorney general, William Barr, has told, quote, unquote, associates that he disagrees with Horowitz’s conclusion – it’s the inspector general — report coming week from yesterday, December 9th. That he, Barr, disagrees with Horowitz’s conclusion that the FBI had enough information in July, 2016 to justify launching the investigation into the Trump campaign. So the story is that Barr disagrees. He doesn’t think they had enough information to start the investigation. He thinks it was a spy operation.

This year's education scandal saw parents shelling out megabucks to gain college admittance for their children. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 50 people with participating in a scheme to get their children into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches. They paid William Singer, a college-prep professional, more than $25 million to bribe coaches and university administrators and to change test scores on college admittance exams such as the SAT and ACT. As disgusting as this grossly dishonest behavior is, it is only the tiny tip of fraud in higher education.

If the two fail to come to an agreement on a set of parameters for the impeachment trial, McConnell is likely to go to the Republican caucus to see who would vote alongside him, The Hill reported.

Do you remember where you were at 9:26 p.m. EDT on July 31? Sen. Kamala Harris certainly does. That was the moment her campaign for president ended. She only just got around to admitting it on Tuesday. Harris, a former prosecutor in San Francisco and attorney general of California, had performed swimmingly in one of the two Democratic debate sessions held in late June. She made a real impression by taking former Vice President Joe Biden down a notch. Although she carefully avoided using the word, she insinuated that Biden’s erstwhile opposition to federally mandated busing made him a racist.

Should the Democrats impeach the president? It’s hard to see a considered strategy in the approach. The president stands accused of using the official functions of his office to create an advantage against his possible 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. To punish him, Democrats have launched an impeachment crusade that has no chance of succeeding in the Republian-controlled Senate. In fact, there appears to be no possible explanation for this course of action except to gain a 2020 electoral advantage against Trump.

The British police force was severely cut under prime ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron, the British version of the liberal-neocon duopoly who, just like their American counterparts, believed in the transformative nature of justice. Transform they did, although not criminals and terrorists. Instead they transformed their countries for worse. The British police force is kneecapped by its own ruling class, the product of its new woke elite, complete with crackpot theories and activist impulses. The U.K. death penalty was removed due to the liberal empire. Police patrols were de-sexed — mom and dad duos, as some Brits call them.

Trump said the wall had been tested by “world-class mountain climbers,” and referenced “pictures of young people climbing walls with drugs on their back--a lot of drugs.”
