The Pope Francis Deflection show

Why is it that people keep praising this Pope Francis? He leads one of the world’s most formidable terrorist organizations in world history that has caused untold misery yet if he says a few nice things about climate change etc all is forgotten? Come on folks remember who has a massive fund of monies extorted largely from the poor, who has been foremost in aiding and abetting colonial atrocities, who still works to stop birth control on an over-populated planet,who is one of the biggest land-owners in the world who does not pay taxes in most parts of the world etc. etc. So let’s stop being cheerleaders for the Church’s latest corporate head.

Don’t forget while this Pope puts a pretty face on something that costs him little (and by the way he is supposed to be concerned with life in the hereafter) the rest of his minions continue the dark labours I cite above in his shadow. The say Satan’s greatest trick was convincing world that he does not exist. This Pope is doing his best to convince the world that his organization is actually concerned with human well-being. That is his trick.
