Putting the Pope on a Rope

with 2 comments

I’ve never had any use for the Catholic church.  I’ve mentioned before that my sister married a papist.  As many know the Catholic church lost its way in 1090 when Peter the Hermit began using rosary beeds to pray.  I’ve always admired John McCain for his vigilant anti-Catholicism including courting the endorsement of Reverend John Hagee who calls the Roman church, “The Whore of Babylon.”

The pope Wednesday exhorted Americans to “welcome the immigrants who join your ranks today, to share their joys and hopes, to support them in their sorrows and trials and to help them flourish in their new home.”

Basically, the Pope encourages illegal immigration, but why?  What does he have to gain?  Why should he care?  It took the brilliant conservative representative Tom Tancredo to nail him. On Thursday Tancredo called the Pope out on wanting more foreigners here because Mexicans are all Catholic.  There’s a reason that Tancredo is on the short list of McCain’s VP candidates and it is courageous statements like this one.

  1. Why is it that people torture Catholics? So what if they use Rosary Beads? The ritual and tradition is what adds to the maejesty and beauty of the Catholic religion. And, you do realize that accepting immigrants into America is the Christian thing to do? Right or wrong, it is the Christian thing.
