The doomed goody-goody pope

Hands up all those who thought that the first ever Jesuit pope would bring back the Inquisition, racks and all.

"'He said...'The court is the leprosy of the papacy...The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old'...he is in a hurry to...open the church to modern culture, and to have a dialogue with other religions...[regarding] the role of women in the church...'the church is feminine'."

As well as confirming suspicions that Pope Francis has abandoned religion for left-wing politics, the article also mentions the seedy goings-on in the all-powerful Curia (that court which he referred to as the "leprosy of the papacy").

"Reform of the Curia was an explicit priority of the cardinals who elected Pope Francis in March, in a conclave held in the midst of a scandal over internal documents stolen and leaked by the pope’s butler and reported to contain accusations of financial impropriety, homosexuality and blackmail in the Vatican."

It's one thing to sacrifice faith to political correctness, like a modish Anglican archbishop - but it's quite another to attack the establishment. Pope Benedict voiced concern about his butler's revelations and soon became too frail to carry on.

This one's going the same way as John Paul I, who not only displayed a fashionable degree of enthusiasm for birth control, but who also attacked that same leprotic court. After just 33 days as pope he suddenly dropped dead.

  1. Absolutely Ian, it is a concern when even the Catholic church become leftie and liberalist. God help us all it is without doubt a scary world we live in.
    Ps. Loving your picture of Baphomet.

    1. Those were the days, Kath. When the Templars were suspected of worshipping Baphomet they were butchered. Things have now gone waaaaay too far the other way.
