BEWARE: Pope Francis supports equality, inclusion and social justice!

The small hairs on the back of my neck stood tall as I began researching the new Papal leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis. It quickly became clear that he wasn’t who we expected – sadly the strong stench of his liberal religious bias is as potent as his socialist political agenda.

As an Orthodox Christian, I am a believer in dogmatic, unchanging, timeless-for-every-culture Truth. The Truth that comes with a capital T and bears the oppressive weight of unjust condemnation and liberal angst, the Truth that defines the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the same truth he said will “set us free” (John 8:31), is the Truth I believe Pope Francis desperately needs.

And the Truth is this: The Catholic Church not only has a liberal bias, they have a liberal leader. And as every faithful Christian knows, liberalism is a dead end – literally.

In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus says, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction…” (Matthew 7:13). To put it simply, “narrow” is Jesus’ way of saying “conservative” – we conservatives hold to a strict, definitive, and narrow Truth. In our opposition we see a liberal, inclusive, all-loving, and welcoming faith – one that leads to, as Jesus says, destruction. Pope Francis is paving the road for the Catholic Church, and with great sadness it’s not the “narrow road” Jesus sought to build.

No homo?

Pope FrancisThe first brick in this broad path of eternal conscious torment was with the Pope’s dismissal of Biblical Truth and love of sexual diversity. “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will,” Pope Francis says, “who am I to judge?

Truth-wielding, Bible-believing Christians have been given the authority to judge one another on the basis of God’s Word.

And we can tell you: this gay-agenda is not in the Bible.

It may be true that Jesus says nothing about homosexuality… but we do know Jesus was one of the most judgmental figures in the New Testament.

And even though the Old Testament passages about homosexuality aren’t culturally relevant today, we look past that to the fact that they must be timeless examples of God’s morals.

No matter how healthy and loving relationships are between gays, we must stand by the Truth and say “You hedonistic sinners are wrong! WWJD!”

(“WWJD” isn’t actually in the Bible, either, but it should be.)

Do Not Touch The Heathens!

This strange path Pope Francis began building with the gays has continued with his acceptance of people of non-Christian religious cults. That is to say, Pope Francis dines with the demonic. In a recent trip to Brazil for “World Youth Day” Francis had his feet washed by a Serbian Muslim woman and made the tragic claim that God redeems “even the atheists.”

Once again we must remind Francis that God does not redeem Muslims or any other demonic worshiping person. God saves those who have accepted Jesus into their hearts, that is, those of us who have cognitively ascended to the correct doctrines.

Jesus was a capitalist

The tragedy continued when Pope Francis told a crowd at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City, “I think about those who are unemployed often because of an economic conception of society that seeks egoistic profit regardless of social justice” — a statement that wreaks of Marxist liberalism and one that stands in stark contrast to the person and work of Jesus. Jesus’ message was about Truth, about God’s Wrath and the forgiveness found in Jesus, NOT about Communism!

In the words of Glenn Beck, “I beg you, look for the words ‘social justice’ or ‘economic justice’ on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes!”

“Selfie” = “Satan”

Pope selfieAnd finally, Pope Francis has officially lost all credibility. He has chosen to follow the teeny-bopping-sexually-driven culture and has taken a “selfie.” Jesus repeatedly taught that we are “not of this world” but that we are to live in the world as a light to the world. Degrading oneself to the slimy pit of cultural teenage vanity stands in stark contrast to the Truth of Jesus. It’s frightening that in Francis’ public life the influence of Miley Cyrus and her VMA sex-performance is stronger than Jesus Christ.

Pope Francis undeniably promotes the inclusion of non-hetero sexualities, he believes in an all-loving God that pursues people of all religions, he promotes the atrocity of social justice, and has fallen under the Devil’s cultural selfie conundrum. He’s using his global platform to encourage the same liberal agenda that seeks to dismantle the strict, literal and dogmatic revelatory Truth we as Christians know from the Word of God.

Pope Francis has an undeniable liberal bias!!!

Why did Pope Benedict XVI really resign? FOUR SCANDALS

Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI recently said he will resign “because of advanced age.” That explanation is neither plausible nor interesting. So what is the REAL reason?

THEORY #1: The Pope ousted by super-powerful Twitter because he was “using it wrong”.

According to anonymous officials inside the Vatican, the Pope had laid out one of the most completely moronic and anti-social uses of social media ever devised.

Specifically, the Pope had declared that: 1) he didn’t want people to tweet to him, because he didn’t intend to reply; 2) he had no plans to ever follow anybody or re-tweet; and 3) there was no reason to expect that he would tweet anything personal or interesting, or even that he would tweet very often.

Also speaking on the condition of anonymity, one official related to the Twitter organization commented on this by saying: “What a #herpderp”.

Is it possible that the great Twitter Overloads were simply so baffled and annoyed by this misuse of the entire concept of Social Media that they applied secret pressure behind the scenes to force the Pope to resign? According to one anonymous and extremely informed individual in the comments section of a blog: “I suppose anything is possible.”

THEORY #2: The Pope resigned because his excessive use of the Dark Side of the Force has sapped him of all of this strength.

According to the official reports, the Pope is retiring because he claims to feel “tired” and “old”. But everyone knows that a good, righteous person derives his energy and vitality directly from God, so what gives?

One possible explanation is that his use of the Dark Side of the Force is finally catching up with him. After all, how do you even get to be Pope after being a Nazi and a (alleged) child molester (some say) unless you are drawing on some very deep and very powerful evil forces in the universe?

 

THEORY #3: A gay love/sex triangle soap-opera murder mystery theater.

There is actually an ongoing criminal investigation going on concerning a situation that could best be described as plot-fodder for one of those daytime televisions series with overly-attractive people in them.

Alois Estermann, the newly appointed commander of the Swiss Guard army that protects the pope, was bisexual and had a taste for the hot young new recruits that arrived each year. His favorite had been fresh-faced, 23 year old Cedric Tornay, who was a corporal in the Swiss Guard. But, since everyone know that 23 years old is “long in the tooth” by Vatican standards, Estermann started letting his attention turn to the newer, and younger, recruits. Poor Cedric, infatuated with his superior, was jilted and turned on Estermann and his supermodel wife (because what slutty bisexual man doesn’t have a supermodel wife these days?) and killed them both before taking his own life.

Allegedly. (This investigation is ongoing.)

Now, there is no reason to think that the Pope himself would have any reason to resign over all of this horrific embarassment…..

…or is there?

Some say that the Pope might have been more involved in this event than previously thought. Some say that the Pope might have known about it all along, and may perhaps have even encouraged some of it. Some people could even say, if they wanted to, that the Pope might have been videotaping some of these encounters for his own pleasure.

We have no evidence of any of this, of course, but that definitely would explain a sudden resignation by the Pope, now wouldn’t it?

THEORY #4: The Pope resigned out of embarrassment over the Superbowl lip-synching scandal.

Now, some people might find this argument far-fetched. However, this story was broken at CitizenSchwartz.com and the following quotation attributed to the Pope definitely rings true:

“I deeply regret that so many young Catholics felt hurt because I did not use my own voice when called to do so, but rather mouthed along to pre-recorded and pre-determined words designed only to make the Papacy and Church look better through a lavish and theatrically staged performance.”

We have to admit, whether the Pope was involved in the Superbowl or not, the above quotation coming from the Pope is, to say the least, 100% and completely plausible.

Pope Benedict protects us from liberal bias

Youth minister Greg Stevens writes an open letter to Pope Benedict XVI to thank him for his efforts to rid the world of liberal bias.


Dear Pope Benedict,

As the leader of the largest and oldest Christian tradition on planet Earth, you have tirelessly fought to bring light, joy, and peace to the human condition. You have reminded us that condoms are okay, but only when used by male prostitutes to slow the spread of HIV. You eloquently wrote that, as Christians, we should pray before each and every time we have sex. You have helped us fight against the tragic “tsunami of secular influence” by blessing the condemnation of birth control, speaking out against the feminazi nuns, and even opening a personal Twitter account to better spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

And this past December, you did it again. You have once again proven your incredible ability to lead millions of Christians in the loving, humble and beautiful way of Jesus by reminding us all that gays are a “manipulation of nature”.

As a single, 85 year old virgin, your God-inspired wisdom on relationships is absolutely vital. Yours is a voice that we Christians cherish and proclaim with great pride.

Because you couldn’t be more right in pointing out that gay marriage represents an attack on traditional marriage that is for “the exclusive profit of a tiny minority”. Jesus might have been into helping some minorities, but obviously not the “tiny” minorities.

It is also absolutely true that marriage is rooted in fiscal irresponsibility. I can only hope that the millions of dollars given by Catholics around the world this next Sunday could be used to combat such lucrative attacks on our faith.

So I wanted to reach out and thank you.

Thank you for equipping priests around the globe to model healthy relationships with women and men, but most importantly our children. After all, it is our Priests who’ve followed the Gospel of Mark’s story of Jesus  so faithfully, “People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them…” (Mark 10:13, New International Version).

Thank you for valuing liberty and justice for all in your incredible ability to speak truth to the manipulation of love. It is love that we must speak to before we can ever begin to understand how to respond to global poverty, human slave-trade and environmental degradation. It is important to rebuke homosexuals, because maybe once they get love right, we good Christians can move on to working on other societal problems.

Thank you for holding fast to the belief in natural relationships. As believers in the Bible, we must never forget the importance of natural scientific facts. After all, sin entered this world through the deception of a talking snake.

And most of all, thank you for reminding us that same-sex, loving, and monogamous relationships are evil.

God Bless You.

Greg Stevens
