The Pope, Green Police, Public Schools and the Clock Kid

Theo CaldwellRebel Commentator

In this excommunication-worthy broadcast, I pick another fight with my old nemesis, the Pope.

Citing the moral authority of John Paul II and Spiderman, I chide the current Pontiff for neglecting the responsibilities that come with his great power. At a time when Christians are persecuted worldwide, as moral outrages like abortion for profit are exposed, I lament Francis' decisions to hector about "climate change," snuggle up to the Castro brothers, and preach his Peronist silly-bears about capitalism.

From there, I contemplate the ubiquity of environmentalist enforcement, with special consideration of Volkswagen and bike lanes. Public schools come in for yet more well-deserved scrutiny as bureaucratic tendencies toward segregation, affirmative action and control have come to bear.

The moral preening surrounding that clock kid gets a once-over, too. Say your prayers, gentle listener.

Interesting article and comments….. Ignorance is certainly bliss for Theo and his followers… I just joined TheRebel and as quickly as I did I am tempted to bail, however I am certain to read my share of horseshit from this writer and wonder what makes him an authority on the subject of religion. From his post I see he feels it is cool to be anti-Catholic, how about trying that same tactic on other faiths, rather than one that is our there trying (although not always perfect) to make this world a better place. That is the reason I joined this faith to begin with… we are not a “sola scriptura” religion that only has to say “I am saved” we need to put our words into action. So if people like Theo and crew take issue with teachings and practices at least there is someone attempting to bring some sense to this world, despite what commenters feel as a divisive political agenda. I understand people like Theo et al, because I use to be one of them until I learned humility and tolerance. Thanks Theo for reaffirming my life decision to be Catholic. Before being accused of drinking the kool aid, I am divorced and gay and neither me or my children never been excluded from feeling welcomed.

I don’t care for this divisive “political pope,” so far he is out to divide the masses, which seems very odd. He doesn’t seem very Christian to me, and I won’t follow what he has to say about anything.

I very much liked this pope in the beginning. But I’ve become disenchanted. He’s become too politicized. He all about being ruled by emotion and ignores the practical common sense approach to situations that sometimes need it. Like what’s happening in Europe right now. That situation desperately needs it but it’s getting none.

Bravo Zulu I really hate to say this but….what you say about the Vatican has been the case….right from 325AD onward…..but unfortunately in any power brokerage corruption is as good as life gets……the “reformers” who have a zero tollerance of corruption are invariably the ones who create the biggest piles of corpses.

I am fairly certain the Vatican is a pretty corrupt place and money tops their list of vices.
