To be honest I would NOT read too much into this so called ‘firing’. The pope, as I keep on pointing out, is not ‘gay friendly’ despite his famous ‘who am I to judge‘ remark.

Nuncios, like Ambassadors, do get replaced on a regular basis ESPECIALLY those appointed to important countries by PRIOR heads — in the case of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò by arch-conservative Pope Benedict XVI. Pope Francis, quite rightly, wants somebody of his choice in D.C. Perfectly normal. So I wouldn’t get too excited.

Pope Francis decries Christmas 2015 and specifically says “… There will be lights, there will be parties, bright trees, even Nativity scenes, all decked out, …” Click image for ‘Rolling Stone” original.

Yes, of course, Pope Francis is RIGHT about the World merrily playing ‘the fiddle’ while there is all this strife and conflict.

I fully understand his statements about Christmas.

What I want to know is what Pope Francis is going to do about it?

This is a pope that people are beginning to appreciate makes statements that he does not follow through on — or are even contrary to what he believes. Suffice just to bring up “Who am I to judge?”.

The Vatican, quite rightly, makes a BIG deal about Christmas. The Vatican nativity scene, accompanied by a huge Christmas tree, is a beloved tradition and a HUGE money maker for the Vatican.

The pope, given he feels so strongly about it, should go ahead the CANCEL the Vatican nativity.

That would be a shot heard all over the world.

He has the power to do so and he KNOWS that he has the power.

Do NOT underestimate this pope or be deceived by his apparent naivety. He knows the power he commands.

So this is a GREAT opportunity. Not moving to the Papal Apartments was one thing. Now here is another great chance to really show that his words COUNT.

Pope Francis is not being genuine when he is BLAMING the synod bishops for their opposition to ‘opening the doors’ for gays.

Despite his confounding ‘why am I to judge’ remark, Pope Francis, a conservative at heart, has a well documented 100% track-record of opposing anything to do with LGBT inclusion. He even refused to allow the French to send a gay Ambassador to the Vatican.

IF the Synod bishops had opened the doors to gays the pope would have NIXED IT!

He is being very disingenuous even by his standards!

The pope does NOT need synodical approval to do whatever he wants. He issued his edicts on the new Catholic marriage annulment standards without any consultations with a synod, cardinals or bishops. That is the beauty of being a pope as opposed to a President or Prime Minister. Absolute, unfettered, dictatorial, autocratic powers. Plus he can’t be voted out of office, impeached or does he have term-limits.

Pope Francis can just thumb his nose at this synod on families.

But he will NOT. Despite his posturing this is what he too wanted.

He can prove me wrong. He can go against the bishops. Other popes have.

This 62% landslide in Catholic-Ireland is an embarrassment and blow to the Pope and the Church.

You have to ask: “What was God thinking?”

Yes, yes, I know all that stuff about Free Will and that God does not micromanage. But when you are talking about an entire Catholic nation it is hardly micromanagement. It is a MACRO event that affects the whole Church. The way I read this — God was in favor.

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin’s statement, shown above, makes it very clear that Pope Francis, despite his infamous ‘who am I to judge‘ statement, is vehemently against gay marriage. Francis, contrary to what he pronounces, is a very-correct conservative, orthodox Jesuit at heart. He may claim not to judge but he is 100% behind the teachings of the Church that homosexuality is a sin! That is the dilemma of — and with — this pope. What he says in public is NOT what he actually believes in. It is a strange kind of papal lip service.

This Irish referendum will be a challenge. He will have to comment on it — this coming week. Lets wait to see what he has to say. God’s Will etc.

This pope, Francis, IF you haven’t worked it out as yet is the absolute master of doublespeak. IF he was Indian as opposed to Argentinian we would say: ‘this pope speaks with forked tongue’.

What he says, which he knows will get FAVORABLE media coverage, is NOT what he believes in or, even more importantly, what he plans to change.

Despite his (in)FAMOUS “Who am I to judge” remark, this pope, per his upbringing, is not pro LGBT when it comes to Church teaching. He, just last week, refused to accept the nominated French ambassador to the Vatican because he was gay.

He has openly opposed gay marriage and adoption by gay couples.

So this is yet another HEADS UP to those that labor under the mistaken assumption that this pope, Francis, will change the Catholic Church’s attitude and teachings when it comes to LGBT.

Another classic example of this pope saying one thing and doing the opposite.

This is NOT an accident or an one-off. This is, alas, and sadly, this pope’s MO.

He likes to appease with words since words are cheap BUT stick to his still rather conservative guns when it comes to action.

I have WARNED you all of this for nearly 2.5 years. He has no intentions to make any major changes to the Church’s rigid views on family values (i.e., gays, divorce etc), contraception, clerical celibacy or female priests. He just likes to grab headlines by saying appeasing statements that he knows will get media coverage. To some extent he has become a liability.

How does this action re. French ambassador designee gel with his ‘who am I to judge’.

Like all popes he has judged. He has pontificated and he has come out WANTING.

BEAWARE. BE Very AWARE. This situation will get worse.
