Slick Video Adds Punch to Bland Papal Intentions
UPDATE: this ephemeris is about the plain old Roman Catholic Church and a frank discussion of it problems. Comments about alternatives, such as schismatic or quasi-schismatic sects will not be published. Thank you for understanding and abiding by the Bear's rules.]
The Bear is at a loss for words, but he did find an appropriate acronym for the title. He changed it, but perhaps the same interrogatory beginning with Whiskey and ending with Foxtrot will occur to you.
Here is a slick, satanic propaganda video produced by the Vatican, pimping the Pope's abominable January intention. The elderly gentleman from Argentina is rubbing our noses in his non-Catholic intention: "That everyone accept Christianity as just one religion among many."
Actually, it is,“That sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice.” Bland, and nothing we haven't heard before. Pope Francis states that since most of the people on the planet are "believers," we should, like, dialogue and stuff.
Life Imitates AgitpropWhat is different is that the Jesuit Apostleship of Prayer, working with the Vatican television center, has produced a video featuring a Jewish rabbi, a Muslim leader, a Buddhist lama and a Catholic priest. They are all shown in pleasant, holy poses, and each states his allegiance to his or her deity. The lady lama says, "I have confidence in Buddha." The rabbi says, "I believe in God." The Catholic priest says, "I believe in Jesus Christ." The Muslim says, "I believe in God, Allah." Pope Francis again appears to explain that many think and feel differently. There follows a series of short scenes of interfaith hugging and kissing.
Then, most remarkably if you think about it, your Pope says this: "There is only one certainty we have for all. We are all children of God."
Only one certainty? That we're all children of God? This is the best the Church occupied by the elderly gentleman from Argentina can offer in terms of certainty? How about the certainty that Jesus Christ is "the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but by me?" That the Catholic faith is truth in its fullness?
Then the four performers one by one say, with great conviction, "I believe in love." At the end, each holds out a symbol of his or her religion. A Buddha statue. A menorah. Muslim prayer beads. And the priest holds out a baby Jesus from a nativity set. (Which begs the question, if it's all a matter of different, but equal beliefs, why did Jesus bother to be born, much less to die on the cross?)
[UPDATE: Some have asked why the Baby Jesus instead of a crucifix. Muslims do not believe Jesus was crucified, so that would have been offensive. So much for respecting our beliefs. Interfaith is always a one-way street. The Church gives in, and more is demanded of her.
On the other hand, if this were Apocryphal Baby Jesus, this video would have a much different and more satisfying ending.]
|They just believe differently, that's all. |
The fix is in: everybody's going to heaven. We're all Bergoglioists now.
|Eerily prophetic agitprop, no? Note that even the positions are perfect.|
This whole business of one's religion being a matter of personal taste reminds me of the attempted seduction scene in Spartacus between Sir Laurence Olivier, and Tony Curtis. (It also carries a timely reminder about Rome. Some things never change.) Pope Francis (here, Laurence Olivier) likes snails, oysters, clams and mussels. And so should you, Antoninus.
In the age of fighting sail, ships would often fly a false flag when approaching any enemy ship. When close enough to attack, they would haul down the false flag and raise their true colors. Pope Francis has decided the time is right to show his true colors. He has let loose a broadside against the Barque of Peter, and now that he has begun, he will not stop until he has captured his prize. He is counting on the shallowness, stupidity and cowardice of most of Catholics. Most Catholics' hearts will melt if they watch this sentimental propaganda, and Francis knows it.
They will not understand that the elderly gentleman from Argentina does not see a last supper with Jesus and his apostles. For Francis, it's an interfaith buffet where Jesus takes his equal place with Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Zoroaster, and, Joseph Smith, for all the Bear knows.
He's finally done it. Game over.
The Bear's Intention for January
Here is the Bear's January Intention. Feel free to substitute it for the elderly confused gentleman from Argentina's and step off the Modernist-Masonic road to damnation.
I believe in love. The exclusive love for the living Son of God, Jesus Christ, God the Father and the God the Holy Spirit, the Holy Trinity. I believe in proper love for the Mother of God, Queen of Heaven, Mary Immaculate. I believe in the one, true God's love for me, demonstrated by the Son, Jesus Christ, hanging on the cross. I pray that everyone will join me in the Catholic Church, the ark of salvation and light of the world.
Obviously, your Pope does not believe any of this. We are moving from learning what Pope Francis does not believe to what he does. And it's not even remotely Catholic.
Draw your own conclusions. The video speaks for itself.
