BEL's Pope List

This is the show from Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

SUMMARY:

Bob Enyart takes a second crack at presenting our online list at www.kgov.com/pope about Francis. It's tough material to get through...






* The BEL Pope List at KGOV.com: Many of Bob Enyart's most popular radio programs and articles consist of the lists that we maintain online here at KGOV.com. Pope Francis' answer last week when asked whether he ever doubts God's existence led to the latest in his own long list of sinful deeds and comments. This then prompted our own Pope List, as here at kgov.com/pope. Over decades of broadcasting, we've noticed 1) Papal defenders claiming a "mistranslation" of the Pope's comments, and 2) as the Catholic Church adopted increasingly humanist, left-wing, and pro-homosexual ideology, that the most conservative Catholics would criticize the Vatican but defend the Pope. No longer. Many conservative Catholics are now recognizing Francis' own immorality, and very few would make the absurd claim that any of the items in our Pope List result from any mistranslation. For surely, one of the most horrific items in this list, the first, utterly condemns him:
- The first assignment that he gave to the teenage boys in his class in Argentina in 1964 was to read the writing of an openly homosexual author, and one of the boys in that class grew up to become one of Francis' many homosexual defenders. To BEL's knowledge, Francis has never repented from this very public sin.
- There is no such thing as Islamic terrorism he said, but global warming is real.
- Pope Francis, like us here at BEL, was asked whether he ever doubts God. Remember that the Apostle Paul wrote that, "Whatever is not of faith is sin." Yet when asked if he ever experiences doubt Pope Francis said that his doubts leave him with momentary feelings of "emptiness", and, to paraphrase him, with ongoing feelings of superiority as he judgmentally claimed that those who don't occasionally doubt God remain "infantile" in their faith. So, practicing unbelief is a way to grow in one's faith? Meanwhile, when a well known agnostic asked Enyart this same question, Bob's reply led to the important article, On Doubt: What Does a Christian Doubt?, at kgov.com/on-doubts.
- When asked about homosexual priests, Francis responded, "Who am I to judge?", to which Enyart replied, "Well, for starters, you're the pope", and, "Would you have answered the same if asked about a priest's sexual attraction to children?", and, "Jesus taught that the covetous desire in the heart is sin regardless of whether it is acted upon."
- Claims that "Poverty is the center of the Gospel" whereas of course sin and Christ's cross are.
- Eagerly affirms homosexual pair in Washington D.C. who stand against biblical marriage.
- Maintains the Vatican surrounded by steep walls and metal detectors at the entrance to St. Peter's Square while opposing proposals for a U.S. border wall.
- Relishes that the most well-known affirmation he gets from his home country is from the young teenager whom decades ago Francis introduced to homosexual literature. That young boy then grew up enslaved by the perversion of homosexual rebellion against Jesus teaching that, "from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female" (Mark 10:6).
- Criticizes capitalism (i.e., freedom) while preferring socialism and higher taxes on the wealthy, which of course promotes class envy, a violation of one of the Ten, by which God commands, "Do not covet thy neighbor's goods." And of course by socialism itself voters and governing officials violate God's enduring command, "Do not steal".
- Whereas Jesus speaks of the reality of enduring poverty, which is largely because of bad government, bad religion (like throughout Central and South America), drunkenness, immorality, and laziness, the Pope promotes wealth redistribution and covetousness as when he says, “restore to the poor what belongs to them.”
- A few months after his, "Who am I to judge," going even further in his comments on homosexual Catholics, Pope Francis bizarrely said, "It is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person."
