THE POPE SAID WHAT, HEY FRANCIS … STICK TO RELIGION AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS?
It would appear that now Donald Trump and the Pope are now in a war of words, but this time it was not of Trump’s doing. Pope Francis said Thursday that Donald Trump was “not Christian” if he wants to address illegal immigration by building a wall. Really Your Holiness, you mean the Vatican does not have walls around it that keep people out? Really? Whats the difference? Why don’t we just let all the illegals go to the Vatican? A note to the Pope, you might want to stay out of the sovereign affairs of other countries.
Remember when the Pope said, “who am I to judge?” You do remember that, right Pope Francis? Maybe you might want to follow your own words for all and not just some.
Thrusting himself into the heated American presidential campaign, Pope Francis declared Thursday that Donald Trump is “not Christian” if he wants to address illegal immigration only by building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump fired back ferociously, saying it was “disgraceful” for a religious leader to question a person’s faith.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” he said. While Francis said he would “give the benefit of the doubt” because he had not heard Trump’s border plans independently, he added, “I say only that this man is not a Christian if he has said things like that.”
Donald Trump fired back at Pope Francis questioning why a religious leader would question an individuals faith. I have been highly critical of Donald Trump and his all too often disrespectful name calling and his lack of focusing on the bigger picture than getting to often bogged down in the weeds, but I am with Trump on this one. What the hell was the Pontiff thinking? This is a Pope that has embraced socialist and leaders like the Castro brothers but has the nerve to call Trump anti-Christian. WTH!!! In the end, the Pope probably just gave Trump more votes heading into this weekends South Carolina primary and Nevada caucus. How often is it that you get into a dust up with the Pope and win? Trump probably just did.
“For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” he said at a campaign stop in South Carolina, which holds a key primary on Saturday. “I am proud to be a Christian, and as president I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened.”
Trump also raised the prospect of the Islamic State extremist group attacking the Vatican, saying that if that happened, “the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president because this would not have happened.”
Trump eased off later Thursday, saying he thought the pope’s comments were “probably a little bit nicer” than first reported.
The American Thinker makes some very important points and advice for the Pope in evaluating the comments made and how and why he would make such foolish ones. I have to say, I second the American Thinker on every point.
First, El Papa should stay away from presidential elections, here, there, and everywhere.
Second, the Vatican is one gigantic place surrounded by walls.
Third, is a border now un-Christian? How did we get to the point that defending borders and promoting legal immigration is now inhumane?
Fourth, El Papa has given Mr. Trump a huge gift. I am not a Trump supporter, but I believe that the U.S. has every right to protect and defend its borders. I don’t know whether building a wall from Laredo to San Diego is the best answer. However, it may work in some isolated regions currently used by cartels to bring drugs and people.
Last, but not least, El Papa just visited Cuba. He hugged and embraced Raúl Castro, a man who has executed priests, harassed religious leaders, and closed Christian schools years ago. Did he call the Castro brothers un-Christian?
Pope Francis is a good man, but he needs a few people around him to protect him from himself.
Pope Francis issues Christmas Day Prayer … Calls For Prayers for Syria, Libya Peace and Condemns Radical-Islamic “Brutal Acts of Terrorism”
ITS ABOUT TIME THE POPE MADE ISIS AND RADICAL ISLAM A GREATER THREAT THAN GLOBAL WARMING …
Today, Pope Francis issued a Christmas Day prayer from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome that called for peace for Syria and Libya, prayers for the suffering and denounced the radical Islamist “monstrous evil” and atrocities.” The Pope made reference to the heinous terror attacks in Paris earlier this year. He also made mention of the attacks in Egypt’s airspace and in Beirut, Mali and Tunisia. The Pope further went in to denounce the ongoing conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and Ukraine and issued words of consolation to Christians being persecuted for their faith in many parts of the world. Isn’t it quite amazing that pretty much all that the Pope is referencing as “monstrous evil” and atrocities” is at the hands of radical Islam? The Pope stated, “Only God’s mercy can free humanity from the many forms of evil, at times monstrous evil, which selfishness spawns in our midst.”
Pope Francis issued a Christmas Day prayer that recent U.N.-backed peace processes for Syria and Libya will quickly end the suffering of their people, denouncing the “monstrous evil” and atrocities they have endured and praising countries that have taken in refugees.
Speaking from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, Francis issued a plenary indulgence for all Catholics in hopes of spreading the church’s message of mercy in a world torn by war, poverty and extremist attacks. The sun-soaked St. Peter’s Square was under heavy security, as it has been since the Nov. 13 Paris attacks by Islamic extremists that left 130 dead.
An indulgence is an ancient church tradition related to the forgiveness of sins. Francis announced it after delivering his annual “Urbi et Orbi” (To the city and the world) speech listing global hotspots and his prayers for an end to human suffering.
Francis referred to the “brutal acts of terrorism” that struck the French capital this year, as well as attacks in Egypt’s airspace and in Beirut, Mali and Tunisia. He denounced the ongoing conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and Ukraine and issued words of consolation to Christians being persecuted for their faith in many parts of the world.
“They are our martyrs of today,” he said.

Joy to the World, the Lord has Come … Wishing all a very Merry Christmas on this blessed day!!!
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger (Luke 2:10-16)

Sultan of Brunei Threatens Muslims Who Celebrate Christmas With Up to 5 Years in Prison … Intended to Control the Act of Celebrating Christmas Excessively & Openly, Which Could Damage the Beliefs of the Muslim Community
IMAGINE IF WE TOLD MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES THEY WOULD BE JAILED FOR CELEBRATING THEIR RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS?
Sounds like a modern day Burgermeister Meisterburger … Talk about your War on Christmas. The Sultan of Brunei is warning residents of that if they plan on celebrating Christmas, they could face up to five years in jail. UNREAL, because Muslim countries are so tolerant, eh? So why arrest those who would dare celebrate Christmas or make plans to organize Christmas get-together’s? It is being done so in fear that celebrating Christmas will affect the faith of its country. In a statement from the Ministry of Religious Affairs, “These enforcement measures are…intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community.”
So Muslims countries across the world can ban Christian religious celebrations and threaten individuals with jail time, but Muslims can come to the United States and celebrate their religion without any consequences what-so-ever and in many cases radicalize in mosques without a damn thing done to them.
The super-rich ruler of Brunei has told residents of his country that if they plan on celebrating Christmas, they could face up to five years in jail.
In fear the the religious holiday will affect the faith of its country, the tiny oil-rich nation’s Sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, has banned the public celebration of Christmas.
Any Muslims caught celebrating Christmas, and non-Muslims who are discovered organising celebrations, could face the lengthy prison sentence.
While non-Muslims are allowed to celebrate the holiday within their own communities, they must not disclose their plans to the nation’s Muslims – which make up 65 per cent of the 420,000-strong population.
Around 20 per cent of Brunei’s residents are non-Muslim, including substantial Buddhist and Christian communities.
‘These enforcement measures are…intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community,‘ said the Ministry of Religious Affairs in a statement.
Freedom of Religion is obviously in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution; however, how does a free and open society deal with a religion which is allowed to operate under “freedom of religion” which looks to spread and become the only region, even if by force?
AWAY IN A MANGER, NO CRIB FOR A BED … CHRISTMAS SEASON MIRACLE … NEW BORN BABY FOUND IN NATIVITY SCENE …
A new born baby was discovered at the Holy Child of Jesus Church in New York in the Nativity scene in the manger. The baby still had the umbilical cord attached and was thought to be only a few hours old. The child was rushed to Jamaica Hospital for treatment, but was said to be healthy and in stable condition. The unknown mother obviously did not follow New York’s “safe haven” law when she abandoned the baby in the manger, but on the bright side, she did not abort it and now one of God’s children has a chance to be adopted and live the rest of its life.
New York has a so-called safe haven law that says a newborn can be dropped off anonymously at a church, hospital, police or fire station without fear of prosecution. But the law, known as the Abandoned Infant Protection Act, requires that the child be left with someone or for authorities to be called immediately.
Police said that didn’t happen in this case, which led investigators to begin searching for the person who dropped the child at the church.
The custodian on duty at the Holy Child of Jesus Church in New York this week beheld a scene straight out of Scripture. Hearing the sound of a baby’s cry, he found a newborn wrapped in towels lying inside, of all places, the wooden manger of the church’s nativity scene.
The infant, who weighed about 5 pounds, still had his umbilical cord attached. As emergency crews arrived to take him to the Jamaica Hospital in Queens, his eyes remained closed, his slight arms outstretched towards the sky.
“For unto us a child is born,” Rev. Christopher Ryan Heanue announced on the parish’s Facebook page. “Let us pray for this child, for his parents and for whomever will receive him into their home.”
The identity of the baby’s mother is still unknown, though police told the New York Times that a video shows a woman arriving with the baby and departing without him. She likely entered the church between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday, the period in which the custodian left the empty chapel for lunch.
Doctors said the baby had been born just four to five hours before he was found, and police told the Associated Press that he is in good health.
A mother who left her newborn baby in a Christmas manger inside a New York City church will not be prosecuted, authorities said Wednesday.
“After a full review of all the facts and circumstances surrounding the discovery of a newborn infant this past Monday in a creche inside of Holy Child Jesus Church in the Richmond Hill section of Queens County – including locating and interviewing the mother – my office has determined that no criminal prosecution of the child’s mother is warranted,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.
Pope Francis Stops Fiat to Kiss the Forehead of a Boy (Michael Keating) with Cerebral Palsy after Landing in Philadelphia, PA (VIDEO)
THIS IS WHAT THE POPE SHOULD ALWAYS BE DOING … PROVIDING HOPE, FAITH AND A BLESSING FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE …
I have been some what critical of Pope Fancis’ political statements that he has made while visiting the United States, only because the following is what he should always be doing and be remembered for. On Saturday morning after the Pope landed in Philadelphia and en route to his next speaking engagement, Pope Francis ordered the car he was traveling in be stopped immediately. Pope Francis got out of the fiat, walked over to a boy in a wheel chair in the crowd and kissed the boy on his forehead. The boy was 10 year old Michael Keating, who has cerebral palsy and cannot communicate. But the Lord works in mysterious ways! KUDOS to Pope Francis. Sir, this is what you need to be doing everywhere and stay away from the liberal BS on climate change and the political fray. You are a religious inspiration and need to bring people back to the faith and provide others with it. Stay Holy and away from politics, please.
Pope Francis kissed the forehead of a boy with cerebral palsy after landing in Philadelphia on Saturday morning, coaxing a small smile from the severely disabled 10-year-old.
Francis apparently spied Michael Keating as he was being driven away from the plane. Ordering the Fiat to stop, Francis got out and walked over to the boy, put his hand on his head and kissed him as his sobbing mother looked on.
Kristin Keating thanked the pope, who grasped her hand. Francis also shook the hand of Keating’s husband, Chuck Keating, the band director at Bishop Shanahan High School in Downingtown. The band serenaded Francis as he arrived in Philadelphia for the last leg of his six-day visit to the United States.
“It was an unbelievable feeling,” Kristin Keating said of the papal encounter, adding she felt “totally blessed and loved” by the pope.

He was taken into custody without incident shortly before 11 a.m., Shelby police said in a statement. Authorities got a call about a possible sighting of the suspect. A local newspaper filled in some of the details.
Barack Hussein Obama Takes Jab at Christians in Easter Prayer Breakfast as Obama Casts a Stone and Condemns ‘Less-than-loving Christians’
EVEN ON THE HOLY DAY OF EASTER, THIS CLOWN HAS TO MAKE A MOCKERY OF IT AND TAKE A SHOT AT CHRISTIANS …
Barack Hussein Obama can’t find it in himself to call out radical Islam as they slaughter, behead and burn to death innocent Christians … but he has no problem at bashing Christians. But what else should we expect from a Muslim raised individual who developed his religious teaching in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation theology church?
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,” Mr. Obama said toward the end of his speech. “And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
“But that’s a topic for another day,” the president said, receiving laughter and applause.
What a sick, pathetic, little man. This is what a community agitator does and frankly America, you are to blame for being so clueless, so apathetic and so uninformed to elect this sorry excuse of a man.
