The pope’s opposition to the same sex adoption law being considered in Malta despite his famous, populist claim as to ‘who am I to judge’, is but just one example of how this pope will continue to trip up since he is playing a dangerous game: making platitudes to please the masses though he has no intention at all to change Church teaching, stance or doctrine. So while he orally panders to the gay community he stands by the book when it comes to the entrenched Catholic belief on this thorny subject. It is very confusing.

Ditto when it comes to his inflammatory remarks about wealth, capitalism and charity. I noticed that on Christmas Eve and New Years Day he was proudly wearing his five (5) gem studded GOLD pallium pins — each worth a few thousand dollars! Those are supposed to represent the rusted nails used to crucify Jesus. IF this pope was serious about wealth distribution he wouldn’t flaunt these gold pins. He would use cheap metal pins.

Ken Langone, one of the founders of Home Depot, confounds me. I see him often on CNBC. He is one of the most obnoxious (and ugly looking) men I have had the misfortune of having to witness. I typically switch channels because he upsets my stomach. But, I am glad to see that he is mad with the pope. But, to be fair as far as I can see Langone doesn’t seem to like anybody other than himself — but that is probably because he hasn’t looked in a mirror in a long time.

Anyhow, here is a small sampling of the HOT WATER that the pope is running into — and will continue to run into. Click on each to access the original. Enjoy.

And then this … which is quite funny …
but this is the pope’s own doing.

Pope Francis’ ‘Who Am I To Judge’ Does NOT Extend To Same Sex Adoption. Pope Displays True Colors.

As a profession (and rather successful) ‘Pope Watcher‘ I knew this was going to happen.

Kind of in the same league as Francis and his gold pallium pins — when he keeps on harping on about charity.

The problem, that so many,
especially the clowns in the media,

haven’t worked out is that this Pope is CONSERVATIVE!
He had to be, to be created a cardinal by John Paul II (#265).
Under John Paul II & Benedict XVI (#266)
prospective cardinals

had to sign an OATH confirming that they are
bona fide traditionalists.

 

He is not going to change the Catholic wide-stance on gay folks, abortion, contraception, women priest, clerical celibacy etc. etc. He just likes to talk a good game. BIG DIFFERENCE.

This is why I did this post for you. Pope’s talk about inclusiveness does NOT change Catholic doctrine.

The other problem, and I have written about that … is that this pope is very careless, intentionally or otherwise, in what he says. He basically blurts out stuff without thinking about what he is saying. This is not good.

wolfinsheepfurDuring the last 4 months I have been doing a crazy amount of research on Pope John XXIII (#262) since I am writing a book on him. Superficially there are a lot of similarities between Francis and John XXIII. But, John NEVER said anything that he did NOT mean 100%. That is key. John was a very intriguing person. Though of dirt-poor, farming peasant stock, he was extraordinarily astute and clever — in a very street-smart way. He rarely, if ever, put a foot wrong and I have yet to really see an example of ‘foot in mouth’. Not so with Francis. He is a loose cannon.

His ‘horror’ at same sex adoption is going to rattle the LGBT community — as it should. They misread him.

This is going to be an ongoing problem.

This pope has created false expectations
— intentionally, or otherwise.

It will be an interesting 2014.

Happy New Year.
