ROME — The great takeaway from the coronavirus pandemic is a rejection of borders and walls, Pope Francis told the BBC on Friday morning. “Climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic have exposed our deep vulnerability and raised numerous doubts and concerns about our economic systems and the way we organize our societies,” the pope asserted in a special audio message for the launch of the COP26 Climate Conference. “The most important lesson we can take from these crises is our need to build together, so that there will no longer be any borders, barriers or political walls for us to hide behind,” he declared.

Comments:

He lectures everyone else while the walls around the Vatican still stand. Hypocrite.

Hey Bergoglio, you are a hypocrite. You have done nothing but create walls in the Church, particularly in going after traditional Catholics who you characterize as "rigid." Bergoglio is a socialist and a fraud.

I have been to the Vatican. If I remember correctly the whole blessed place is encircled by a nice, big, tall, thick wall. And guards everywhere is very colorful costumes. Is this the definition of irony?

As I understand it, Biden's (3rd) meeting with the Pope was to be shown live, but there has been a back off----maybe because MOST of we Catholics are furious that a man who loudly proclaims for abortion (and count Pelosi as well) gets to meet the Pope (for whom I have little respect ) all in an effort to keep the Catholic vote.

Biden and Oil: Destroy America in Order

10 replies
Posted by Trapper 6/20/2022 1:17:37 PM Post Reply
Our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation. Try to follow the Joe Biden energy plan of frantically trying to get his hands on more of something that his own party despises. During the Democratic primaries, Biden ran on the premise that he would end all fossil fuels during his tenure. In 2019-2020 that bluster seemed easy demagoguery at a time of near-record low gas and diesel prices.

Although they may pose as pacifists or realists, they are better understood as enablers of Russian imperialism and war crimes.

The State of Florida is set to issue a formal report questioning the science behind “gender-affirming” care for people who believe they are transgender. Breitbart News exclusively obtained a 45-page report on Thursday completed by Florida Medicaid and requested by the Secretary of the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), which oversees Florida’s Medicaid program. In consultation with several experts, the report concludes that sex reassignment surgeries, puberty blockers, and cross sex hormone treatments for people with gender dysphoria are not proven as “safe or effective” treatments and are “experimental and investigational.”

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is the most brazen illegal war waged by one sovereign state against another since World War II. The Kremlin launched the invasion in clear violation of the core obligation in the UN Charter, which prohibits the “use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state.” Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently threatened that if Ukrainians continue to resist, they “risk the future of Ukrainian statehood.” And there is an avalanche of real-time evidence emerging from Ukraine that the Russian military is committing war crimes throughout the country—including by targeting civilians.

This week, Hillary Clinton dispelled the rumors that she might be running for presidential office again in 2024. The 2016 Democratic candidate who faced former President Trump, told the Financial Times in an interview published Friday that there were no plans to run for office in 2024. “No, out of the question,” Clinton told the Financial Times. “First of all, I expect Biden to run. He certainly intends to run. It would be very disruptive to challenge that.” Clinton made her failed bid for President in 2016 and unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. Another bid for the office seems like it would be a wasted effort.
