What did the Pope know and when did he know it?

CBS Chicago says:

The questions of what did the Pope know and when did he know continue being debated in newspaper headlines, blog posts and on twitter feeds.

You’d think they were talking about some horrible atrocity rather than a brief meeting with someone who spent five days in jail.

  1. Conquest’s 2nd and 3rd laws:

    2. Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.
    3. The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.

    Catholic Church.

    The Church now supports gays, abortion, destruction of marriage, divorce, etc…anything goes…
    I hope the next pope is one of these Nigerian Catholics, just to further embarrass anyone who is still a practicing Catholic.

    People wonder why whites have fled the Catholic Church like crazy. It’s now a bureacracy who spends its time insulting its historical membership and doing “outreach” with our enemies. Who imports all the africans into lily-white cities in towns across the West? Catholic Church (among other christian bureaucracies).

    • These people stand for nothing, and I’m embarrassed to have ever been baptised.

      • Well, its not like you had a say in it.

  2. Awww… the gay gestapo got their feefees hurt. :”(

    There is, however, an interesting speculation towards the end of that article.
    Some call it an attempt by highly placed church leaders in the U.S. to diminish the impact of the Pope’s visit.

  3. I beleive in separation of religion and state for the benefit of both, but primarily the religion. Religion depending on secular power or laying claims to secular power inevitably becomes corrupt. Pope is all over the place except protecting persecuted Christians of the world.

    Having gays and transgenders deliberately shoved in his face is a humiliation and an insult that no self-respecting pope should have tolerated.

  4. This is a weird story because of the secrecy of the meeting. It’s like the Pope wanted to keep his left wing credentials and didn’t want anything about this meeting to be public until he was out of the country.

  5. What’s really stupid is that Davis is some kind of evangelical who was probably taught that the Pope is the Anti-Christ.

    • There was a new story that said that the Pope gave her two rosaries and she gave them to her parents, who are Catholic.

  6. According to secular liberalism, very few things are immoral, so the few things that they deem to be immoral get assigned a disproportionate volume of moral outrage.

    There are millions of tiny little principles in everyday interactions, falling under the basic principles of truth honor and integrity, subsumed under the basic moniker of “character,” that progressive coastal liberals don’t give a shit about and transgress every day. But if you cross one of their arbitrary pet causes, then they get all in a tizzy and want to get you fired, doxxed, killed, or otherwise want to make your life a living hell.

    • Oh yeah and they will appeal to the traditional values of truth honor and integrity when it suits their agenda, and completely ignore them when they don’t.

  7. While I am commenting here, this is one group of stories and controversies that I ignore (and incidentally, I’m not Catholic).

    There is a huge western tradition of anti-Catholicism that dates backs centuries, well before the reformation. You can still map areas in France where the Albisingens were strong with current electoral support for the Socialists, for example. While old, its not exactly the most coherent tradition and still emerges in surprising ways.

  8. What luscious irony! We have the Pope recanting his heresy before the modern Inquisition!

  9. “What will he know and when will he know it?” is a better question.

    The man is a moron. All he can do is incoherently parrot feelgood platitudes.

    • Not a moron.

      It’s possible that he just doesn’t like confrontation.

      • Confrontation is the very essence of the thing. Progressives make confrontation bad, then engineer constant confrontations to humiliate and silence their opponents.

        Confronted with a gay couple, reality demands the Pope (or any Christian, or any Jew for that matter) say “You are engaged in an abomination before God. You are under judgment, unless you repent. I pray for your soul.”

  10. Francis is the first black Pope aka Popebama. He is first and foremost a celebrity with superficial charms and a taste for moral platitudes. Throughout his visit he was very careful to maintain his liberal bonafides with the American media. In his address to congress he hit all the basic left wing talking points on climate change, gun control, the dealth penalty and immigration.

    During that same address he had a chance to condemn the actions of Planned Parenthood and Obamacare which both impose mandatory funding for abortions via the taxpayer which Catholics staunchly oppose. He did not. He also said nothing about the threat of radical Islam abroad and their killing of thousands of innocent Christians. This backroom meeting with Kim Davis was nothing more than a smokescreen to create the illusion of impartiality.

    It is obvious that the Pope is a publicity seeking political operative and that he is loving every minute of it.

  11. Well it was fun while it lasted. After a liberal love orgasm suddenly there he was with Kim Davis and suddenly the media is a “What does it mean? what does it mean?”
