Pope Francis's approach to COVID-19 is a reminder that he is a leftist

Original Article

In a few small ways, Pope Francis is a traditionalist. He opposes abortion, gay marriage (although he supports gay civil unions), and the notion of infinite genders. In most other ways, though, the Pope constantly demonstrates that he emerged from a Marxist background. Despite being the Catholic Church’s preeminent man of God, he has a Gaia-centric view of nature. He also brings a Marxist’s understanding of economics (i.e., simplistic and wrong) to the papacy. That’s why, on Wednesday, the Pope suggested that COVID-19 is the earth’s revenge for climate change and then implied that politicians concerned about the economy are akin to Hitler in 1933

I'm catholic and this man does not represent me or my faith. He puts his leftist politics before religion. I read someone that he was bought by Soros.

The Pope continues to disappoint, and worst of all, he promotes those who think just like he does. I'm afraid that when he's gone, there will be another just like him.

He is leftist, a marxist, a globalist, and not a Vicar of Christ. I am one of his flock, and I do not envy him.

Reply 7, I am a Catholic (not a Pope Francis "catholic") and have read many of his dubious encyclicals. She is spot on. Pope "Mercy" is a triple A horses -ss, who denounces faithful Catholics and "accompanies" evil.

Mankind is guilty of many sins growing exponentially in the last few decades. But this current chastisement is undoubtedly the result of Bergolio allowing pagan idols into the Vatican last October at the Amazon synod. This Traditional Latin Mass Catholic is asking all fellow Ldotters, Catholic or not, to pray the Vatican is exorcised and reconsecrated to end this pestilence and so many other ills that have crept into the Church and society.

In the interest of fairness, has #7 actually read Francis' encyclicals? There are too many references to Leftist principles as the interpretive keys for scripture and spirituality to pretend his views, policies, and actions are not guided by politics. That said, reports that analyze interviews without including the questions ostensibly being answered get filed close to stories "based on actual events" in my book. We've all seen too many times how interviewers like to elicit particular answers by the way they set up the questions. Subsequently omitting the questions allows reporters to massage the answers into almost any shape they want. Leave the creative weaving of snippets of reality into cohesive narratives to propagandists and paranoid schizophrenics, and give us authentic reporting.

Maybe if idols were not worshiped in the Vatican during the Amazon Synod things would be very different now. God is not mocked. And "mother earth" is not a god.

In A. A. Milne’s classic Winne-the-Pooh children’s tales, Eeyore, the old gray donkey, is perennially pessimistic and gloomy. He always expects the worst to happen. Milne understood that Eeyore’s outbursts of depression could at first be salutatory but then become monotonous. The outlook of the pessimist (“if you think it’s bad now, just wait”) always enjoys advantages over both the realist (“so what, life goes on”) and the optimist (“oh, come on, it can’t be that bad”).

You knew somebody had to propose this as a response to the coronavirus pandemic, and if you had three guesses about the identity of the author you might well have nailed it. Yes, New York Times columnist and noted promoter of utopian centrism Thomas Friedman has suggested that at the 2020 Democratic National Convention Joe Biden name a “national unity cabinet” to signal an end to the bad old “hyperpartisanship” of the previous era. Unfortunately, Friedman’s opening pitch sounds a bit more like a bipartisan, mutual self-protection scheme than a plea for genuine unity:

U.S. Sen. David Perdue’s financial portfolio saw heavy trading during the month of March, a period during which Congress passed three different spending bills to address the spread of COVID-19 and the markets took a turn for the worse. The report lists 112 transactions, including 76 stock purchases costing as much as $1.8 million and 34 sales worth up to $825,000. Compared with the 26-month period before the coronavirus swept across America, Perdue’s portfolio activity has increased nearly threefold. There were an average of 38 individual transactions in monthly reports from January 2018 through February 2020.

Democrats and liberals increasingly seem to believe that it's the federal government that needs to do almost everything. Sure, we take the point that it was federalism, states’ rights, that allowed racial segregation and Jim Crow, and thus, there's rightly a certain suspicion of the idea. Yet in light of how the coronavirus crisis is playing out, it’s time for localism's critics to reconsider. As an example, Germany is well ahead of other nations on coronavirus testing. The reason?

Marco Rubio’s political fortunes have gyrated frequently during his 10 years in national politics. But the coronavirus outbreak may have brought the Florida GOP senator to his most critical moment yet. As chairman of the usually sleepy Small Business Committee, Rubio has a key position in the country’s response and recovery from the pandemic. His panel’s $377 billion lifeline for small businesses is a linchpin of Congress’ $2 trillion economic rescue package, and Rubio’s efforts are winning praise from Republicans and Democrats alike even as implementation of the program remains deeply uncertain.

Still, a notable portion of the public—particularly conservatives—believes that the virus emerged from a laboratory rather than nature, according to a new poll released on Wednesday. Three-in-10 (29%) say it most likely was created in a lab—23% believe the current strain of the coronavirus was developed intentionally in a laboratory; another 6% say it was most likely made accidentally in a lab, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

San Francisco now plans to lease 7,000 hotel rooms to provide shelter for homeless people as well as first responders and health care workers battling the spread of the coronovirus, city officials said Wednesday. This would more than triple the rooms now under contract. The city already has committed $35 million for the next three months to lease the first batch of units. The overall effort would cost San Francisco roughly $105 million — some but not all of which would be reimbursed by the federal and state governments.
