Pope Lies to Kids

 

The Pope continues his propaganda effort in support of the muslim invasion flow immigration flow to Europe.

Francis invited all the children to pray the Hail Mary out loud together with him, in memory of all the migrants who have died at sea, especially in the memory of the six-year-old Syrian girl whose life jacket he was carrying.

The Pope then entered into a lively exchange with the students regarding the acceptance of immigrants.

During the conversation, the Pope urged everyone to awaken from indifference and, leaving aside excuses, to welcome others as brothers and sisters. Invoking the parable of the Good Samaritan, the Pope said that welcoming means taking care of others.

 

“Migrants are not a danger; they are in danger,” the Pope said. He then had the group repeat several times together with him: “They are not a danger, they are in danger.”

The stranger, Francis said, is not dangerous and bad. He should not scare us just because he has a different skin color, culture or religion, since we are all children of the same Father.

Asked by one of the children how someone can call himself a Christian and go to church, and then reject migrants, Francis spoke of hypocrisy, encouraging the children not to be selfish, but to have the courage to be generous.

Another ten-year-old child, named Antonio, said that people who do not welcome migrants “are beasts.”

 

Go here to read the rest.  I guess if the Pope had mentioned to the kids the fact that Muslim “immigrants” have sometimes pushed Christians among them into the Mediterranean that might have spoiled the effect.  Go here to read about one incident.

Additionally if the Pope had noted that muslims make up two percent of the population in Italy but 35% of those in Italian prisons, what would the kids have thought?

 

Perhaps I am being too harsh on the Pope.  Perhaps he is not lying but merely delusional.  The Pope may mentally actively filter out information that does not comport with what he wants to believe.  Hmmm, that makes me feel so much better!  In either case we have a man at the helm of the Church who either lies, or has an inability to look at facts straight on, if facts are counter to a policy which he supports.

  1. A true Father protects his children from harm. He never knowingly risks his children’s safety to serve some other agenda. The reason, of course, is that there is no other agenda more important than the well-being of his children. This pope is a politician first and foremost.

  2. Father of Seven: Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for a fish, will give a snake instead of a fish? Or if the child asks for an egg, will give a scorpion?

    Actually, the Pope is describing the proper Christian attitude to be made, before sending these people back home.

  3. This Pope over the weekend always welcomed and awarded Selma Hyaek, Goerge Clooney and other liberal actors reknown for their pro-abortion stance. Additioally, he ingratiated himself with the secular group YouTube Beauty Vloggers. For such a humble man, he certainly puts himself in the limelight with secular media all the time.

  4. Don, you are not being too hard on the Pope. The real problem is that the post-WW2 church (not just the Catholic Church) is too focused on interior spirituality. There is too much emphasis on the proper interior attitudes that are necessary for Christian growth, and much less on the type of moral theology that emphasizes exploring the full range of outcomes from our decisions that are driven by our attitudes. The Pope and our other leaders should not be cherry picking like this, it’s as bad as the prewar just-war theology interpretations by some that always gave the benefit of the doubt to the state.

  5. The real problem is that the post WW2 Church gave up on preaching righteousness and holiness and started down the road of liberal tolerance and pacifism, subsituting secular values for spiritual values. Jesus came to bring a sword – Matthew 10:34. There is no room for pacifism among a people who murdered God’s own Son, and that’s all of us – every single one of us. The degree to which the Church gave up preaching righteous and holiness is the degree to which there will be no peace.

  6. “The real problem is that the post WW2 Church gave up on preaching righteousness and holiness….”
    Yeah, that too, but that’s a less proximate cause. You are into to deep roots there Paul.

  7. he Pope may mentally actively filter out information that does not comport with what he wants to believe.

    Most likely this; I’ve been told by some folks who are familiar with South America and with a lot of Europe that the news is, to put it politely, very tightly controlled. You really can’t trust it– the blog-common practice of multiple sources and evaluating it doesn’t happen. (Which makes sense, if basically the only source is their version of the AP, maybe re-written slightly.)

  8. The Pope had to have heard about the hundreds of women in Cologne who were molested by refugees in one night and he knew of Brussels and Paris done by what he called non integrated muslims ( it was Europe’s fault in Francis’ ideology for not giving them integration…somewhat like food stamps…you can give it…the fact that they look forward to promiscuity in paradise if they kill unbelievers is not a stumbling point for Francis). The OT says, ” where there are many words, sin is not lacking.”. Francis proves that verse. He just lied to those kids about refugees being danger free and trained them to repeat a lie that was conscious on his part.

  9. “Additionally if the Pope had noted that muslims make up two percent of the population in Italy but 35% of those in Italian prisons, what would the kids have thought?”

    Oh ye of little faith Don! That would be an easy one to spin. He would just say that the justice system in Italy, inspired by bigotry, disproportionately prosecutes Muslims. Just like how the U.S. Bishops falsely assert that the death penalty in the U.S. unfairly targets blacks and other minorities. So what if blacks commit capital crimes that overrepresent their population over four fold. Get with the program, man! Facts don’t mean squat when you can just appeal to intellectually and, even emotionally, shallow skulls full of mush!

  10. To add to Greg M’s view that the dear Santo Papa, like the US Bishops, would just politically “spin” the 35% Muslim criminal population of Italian prisons, it is not far from the illegal alien criminal population in US Federal prisons (36.7% according to US Sentencing Commission data for FY 2014, the most recent year yet available), or that estimates of illegal prisoner populations in California prisons are likely even higher—but California and several other states refuse to record immigration status of a criminal, since the actual facts are stunning. But, these aren’t popular views — that illegal invaders, be they Muslim or cartel gang-members, are deadly felons:

    “So, the average American is blissfully unaware of them.

    •Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
    •During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
    •That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.

    That 5.6% figure for the average illegal alien population in those five states comes from US Census estimates. We know the real number is double that official estimate. Yet, even if it is 11%, it is still shameful that the percentage of murders by criminal aliens is more than triple the illegal population in those states.”
    —“Illegal Alien Crime Accounts for over 30% of Murders in Many States”, Tom Tancredo, Aug 8, 2015, Breitbart News.
    ….
    But we should all not speak of these unpleasant matters.

  11. About that ‘Mark Shea photo’: my 17 year old son had no idea of who Mark Shea is. I showed him Shea’s photo on the National Catholic Register site, then that Libertarian photo. He really thought it was the same person!

    Another cheap shot: a few years ago Shea wrote a backhanded attack on abortion in which he parroted pro-abortion lines in a parody. One commenter mistook the parody for a real defense of abortion, and he told Shea “you don’t want to meet me in any dark alleys, you bearded orangutan”. I laughed for 20 minutes, though most of that was over the mistake and imaging the alley meeting. To his credit Shea was gentle with the commentator.

  12. Delusional I think, not lying on purpose.
    HIs confusion and delusion are the products of the works of the devil. We must pray for him.
    Definition: “delusion is a belief that, though false, has been surrendered to and accepted by the whole mind as a truth”
    I have to think it is a mental and spiritual malfunction that blocks him from reality- otherwise how could any one operating in bright reality say those things while holding the dead girl’s life vest?
