PopeWatch: Bad Joke

Wednesday, June 14, AD 2017


Further evidence that this current pontificate is a bad joke:


Among the 45 new members Pope Francis has appointed to the Pontifical Academy for Life is an Anglican minister who has argued that abortion should be legal until “18 weeks after conception.”

University of Oxford Professor Nigel Biggar, who was appointed to the Academy for a five-year term, stated in a 2011 dialogue with pro-infanticide ethicist Peter Singer that a preborn baby is “not…the same kind of thing as an adult or a mature human being” and therefore does not deserve “quite the same treatment.”

“I would be inclined to draw the line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception, which is roughly about the earliest time when there is some evidence of brain activity, and therefore of consciousness,” he said as reported by Standpoint magazine.

Then, one year later, when he was the keynote speaker for an event at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, he said that “it is not true that all abortion is equivalent to murder.”


Go here to read the rest.  Pro-lifers in the Age of Francis need to watch their backs, because the Church sure will not be.

  • A pro-abort at the Academy for Life. There’s an oxymoron for you!

  • He is on a mission….. unfortunately;

    (An except from your article)
    Pope Francis began his overhaul of the Academy last year by creating new statutes, that among other things, no longer required that members sign a declaration to uphold the Church’s pro-life teachings. The Pope’s next move was to then remove all of the academy members while promising to make new appointments himself.

    Former academy member Judie Brown wrote in an article earlier this year that she was shocked by what she called Francis’ move to “deconstruct” the Academy that was once considered a bastion of orthodoxy.

    “The Pontifical Academy for Life is undergoing an overhaul by Pope Francis and his political operatives within the Vatican’s hierarchy, and it is one of the most heartbreaking events I have seen in my lifetime. But given the politics of the Vatican, it is not surprising,” she wrote at that time.

    Bad joke indeed.
    I can’t help but see a Martin Luther wannabe​ sitting in the Chair of Peter.

    The Chastisement us well underway.

  • The chastisement IS well….not us.
    Excuse my typo please.

  • The Eye of the Tiber and actual news are confused with this Pope.

  • “Pro-lifers in the Age of Francis need to watch their backs, because the Church sure will not be.”

    I would amend that to say:

    “Pro-lifers in the Age of Francis need to watch their backs, because neither this Pontiff nor his lackeys surely will.”

    That Argentinian Marxist Peronist heretic and his limp-wristed effeminate lavendar clothed yes-men of demonic doom do not define the Church. When God has had enough of them, He will ensure that they go to exactly where they have by their actions always shown where wanted to go in the first place.

  • Scientific DNA tells us that the human being begins at fertilization. Mary, the IMMACULATE CONCEPTION tells us that her life began at conception. The human soul being scraped from the womb is murder, a violation of the Fifth Commandment. Pope Francis has to work every hard to maintain that kind of ignorance. Maybe Pope Francis will get overtime pay from the devil, a couple of extra years in hell after eternity.

  • It won’t be long before Pope Francis re-defines Pro-Life to include environmental and economic concerns. Maybe he already has?
