Socialist Pope

I just read the whole transcript. It's all social engineering and social justice. But there are 3 things missing in his talk that I wondered about.
1. IS there not a force for evil that is killing and beheading Christians in the Middle East? Did he miss the memo?
2. Is the Catholic Church still pro life regarding Abortion? I heard about capital punishment.. but isn't abortion and murder in Iraq capital?
3. He is supposedly the VICAR of CHRIST who's name he never mentioned. No JESUS.. What is up with that?
Color me very unimpressed and do we really need the Pope to under-gird the functional agnostic post modern secular humanist in the white house?
WASHINGTON -- On Thursday, Pope Francis became the first pontiff to address Congress on Capitol Hill. Here is a transcript of his speech: Dear Friends, I am...

An observation by George Carlin:

George Carlin's wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin

Pope Dope

The poorer a country is .......the more poverty you will have in that country. And the more expensive you make energy.....the more poverty you will produce in a nation. Please consider that reality, Pope Francis, before you punish us and all poor people for something (climate change) that has not even been proven. It is capitalism that produces jobs for people in free societies Pope Francis. Would you rather that governments control the economies of the world??? Look at the economies of the former Soviet Union, China, Venezuela, Cuba, for examples of economies that not only don't work......but they enslave or enslaved their people. So which works out better Pope Francis??? A free enterprise economy allows upward economic mobility of all of its members. A totalitarian government does not allow for people to prosper economically. Totalitarian regimes take away civil liberties so that no one can prosper economically. And that is the purpose of those governments control peoples initiatives and so their abilities to prosper as a result of their contributions to the society in which they live.
Pope Francis suggests that capitalism worsens poverty, encourages vice, and creates suffering, but he's wrong on every count.

Obama is not a Christian, he is a post modern Agnostic

“Is Obama a Muslim? The answer is no. But what is he then? Is Obama a Christian, as Jeb Bush asserted in an attempt to make Trump look bad after Thursday’s dustup? Not a chance. Obama is about as pure a post-modern agnostic as you can find. He’s about as Christian as your average gender studies professor at Swarthmore. Religion is for the president a convenience, an instrument of power.” Like everything else.

So Obama is neither Muslim nor Christian, but that is an entirely incomplete view of his belief system. Something is going on in an emotional sense that trumps (excuse the phrase) conventional religious belief. He seems almost always to side with Islamic society against Christendom, bending over backwards on occasion to set up false equivalences. At the very moment the Islamic State was lopping off the heads of Christians and Yazidis in Libya, Syria and Iraq, he invoked the Crusades at a National Prayer Breakfast as if this behavior from centuries ago were even marginally equivalent. Unlike other major world leaders, he didn’t bother to attend the Charlie Hebdo massacre memorial in Paris. He couldn’t even say the Islamic terrorists who shot the people in the Paris kosher deli the day after did so because the victims were Jews. And then there’s the Iran deal, the giveaway of the century ($150 billion) to an Islamic state building nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles, not to mention sponsoring terrorism across the world, for absolutely no verifiable quid pro quo.

Who would do such a thing? Well, Barack Obama obviously.
