Pope Advocates Theft

You think this is a lie?  Blasphemy against the church?

There is blasphemy, but it isn’t by me.

Pope Francis called for renewal of the Roman Catholic Church and attacked unfettered capitalism as “a new tyranny’…

Given that we do not live in a world of unfettered capitalism (or capitalism in any meaningful manner), I believe the Pope is battling a straw man. 

…urging global leaders to fight poverty and growing inequality in the first major work he has authored alone as pontiff.

Let me rephrase, for clarity: “…urging [politicians] to [further institutionalize lies, deceit and theft in order to expand the strangling of the middle class in favor of the elite] in the first major work he has authored alone as pontiff.”

Francis went further than previous comments criticising the global economic system, attacking the “idolatry of money”…

The pope attacks the single-most important commodity in the division-of-labor economy; the single most important commodity in keeping man from an instant return to subsistence living; the single most important commodity in ensuring that resources are efficiently allocated and utilized in accordance with the wishes of living, breathing human beings.

The conclusion is clear: the pope hates mankind.

…and beseeching politicians to guarantee all citizens “dignified work, education and healthcare”.

I will rephrase, for clarity: “…and beseeching politicians to [steal from middle class citizens in order to continue the control by the elite, all under the guise of ensuring for all] citizens ‘dignified work, education and healthcare’.”

He also called on rich people to share their wealth. “Just as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’ sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say ‘thou shalt not’ to an economy of exclusion and inequality.

Did God forget something when He spoke to Moses on Mt. Sanai?  Did He forget to mention something to one of the many human conduits He inspired in the writing of the several books of the Bible?  The pope decides to add something now?

Such an economy kills,” Francis wrote in the document issued on Tuesday.

So, the pope’s solution is to give more power to the entity that has killed more than any other entity in the history of the world – the monopolized state.

The pope hates mankind.

…economic inequality features as one of the issues Francis is most concerned about, and the 76-year-old pontiff calls for an overhaul of the financial system and warns that unequal distribution of wealth inevitably leads to violence.

And the solution to violence apparently is more violence, according to the pope.

“As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets…”

Another straw man.  If only markets had absolute autonomy – the ultimate will of each individual to make choices according to his own subjective value scale.

“…and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems,” he wrote.

The pope’s solution?  Strengthening “the structural causes of inequality.”

“I beg the Lord to grant us more politicians who are genuinely disturbed by the state of society, the people, the lives of the poor.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, I would laugh if the pope’s words were not do dangerous.

The pope is begging to give more power to the class that is the tool for the elite, the class responsible for the injustices he is cursing.

The pope hates mankind.  The pope advocates theft.  It should never be said that such a person has his heart in the right place – he is just misguided about means.  I care nothing for intent when the recommendation is for an increase in theft and violence by the institution responsible for more death than any other entity on earth.

Christ never once suggesting giving more power to Rome (the state) in order to feed the poor.  He never once believed that the Caesar’s power could be used for good.

Was Christ merely ignorant of God’s desires in this matter?

This is blasphemy.  It most certainly is not Biblical.


  1. I guess this is why the US gov. is pretending to stop spying on the Vatican. They take the socialist line even more consistently than government. Biblical? No. Blasphemy? At least. And very sad.

    I see all of my Catholic friends and family, fighting against socialism; except where they are fighting just as vehemently for it. The same can be said of almost everyone else, with most exceptions being those who have embraced socialism completely.

    Sorry to be so negative. I explain to my friends and family why I am against certain things, and sometimes convince them to oppose those things as well, usually to find later that they have not changed their attitudes, and are just as statist in their thinking as before.

    Such a pope may be all we can get now.

    1. Sheldon Richman recently wrote on this issue:


  2. is this more 'liberation theology' that has been preached and practiced in S. America for a long time now? it does read like such is the case.

    1. I cannot say; however, although government everywhere is corrupt, few are so visibly corrupt to the common man as those in South America and certainly Argentina. Yet the pope want to hand this breed even more power and control.

    2. Please understand I make the following observation without knowing too much about Christianity. I apologize for any innacuracies.

      I've never been one for religion, but it has always baffled me when a Christian church has stood up in favor of the state. Whether to save man from sin or not, Jesus was tortured, humiliated, and mocked by Roman soldiers. Is this any different than what the state does to it's victims now?

      Would the current Pope be fine with watching Christ be crucified today, so long as Roman (American) Soldiers handed out ration cards and food stamps an hour before? Or if they held a majority vote to do it?

      I don't understand how a Christian man, allegedly a holy man, sees Government as a tool for good. It's not a hammer, it's a wrecking ball.

    3. You understand more about Christianity than most so-called Christians.
