What would you think if Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and former President Jimmy Carter all came out and proclaimed their love for Ted Cruz? Would you think – Wow – three out-of-control leftists love Ted Cruz. Maybe they’ve seen the light? That’s great news! They must’ve seen the error of their ways and come over to our side.
Of course not! These three are committed leftists. What you should be thinking is what the heck happened to the poster boy of conservatism, Cruz.
So when we see Jane Fonda, Jim Carrey, Bill Maher, Russell Crowe and John Stewart tweeting that you, “Gotta love new Pope – He cares about the poor – Unlike U.S. Congress…,” or, “He’s changing the tone of the way you regard the Pope,” or, “That’s it – I’m converting – I love this guy,” you have to know these people are not going to convert to Catholicism. We also must conclude there is something not quite right (literally) with Pope Francis.
None of these lefties have seen the light and suddenly found religion, so it leaves us with but one sad conclusion. The Pope is no conservative – and I don’t mean politically.
Yet we can’t put politics aside when the leader of the Catholic Church is a redistributionist and a global warming nut. I’m sorry to all you Catholics, but facts are facts. I know this will not win me many friends, but you have to admit – there is something not quite right.
Now, not being a Catholic, I cannot speak to the tenets of the religion, but it certainly appears to me that Pope Francis is treating Catholic traditions and doctrine the way Obama treats our Constitution and laws. He appears to just be making wholesale changes to centuries of tradition. To what end, I do not know.
