Pope Francis, Once Again Wearing Gold, With The Insane Riches Of The Vatican As A Backdrop, Condemns Wealth.

This irks me no end. Yes, the pope makes a pretense of trying to lead a simple life BUT he invariably surrounds himself with gold. There is nothing in the Bible that says he need gold to give him credibility.

And as for the Vatican’s insane wealth — or for that matter the opulence in which Church prelates continue to live.

I no longer think that Francis is a hypocrite when it come to this matter — i.e., telling us to abandon wealth while the Vatican and the prelates continue to accumulate and glorify.

No, I just think he is TOO STUPID to realize what he is saying and the hypocrisy involved!

McDonald’s In The Vatican: Forget Pope Francis, What Would Jesus Say?

I am sure that other cardinals and many of the other prelates will welcome having a McDonald’s handy — just off St. Peter’s Basilica.

I could see the Pope dropping by for a burger and milk shake. This would be great publicity for McD. I really should buy some shares. I used to be a shareholder a few years ago, but got impatient.

I am sure Jesus wouldn’t have a problem provided they make sure to have plenty of the Fish Fillets on Friday.

Well, I already talked about the chances of schism
— and the possibility of ‘Plan B’a year ago!

On many recent papal issues I tend to be way ahead of the pack.

Today’s Catholic prelates are not interested in a schism. Way too much like hard work and it will upset the apple cart. Much easier to eliminate the source of the problem. ‘Plan B’. That there was talk, as the Synod was proceeding, that Francis has a brain tumor was fascinating.

Folks can now make out that the Pope’s thought process was impaired by the tumor! Brilliant.

Plus if Francis was to do a John Paul I they already have THE story lined up. Brilliant.
