New Papaganda Video Highlights Planet

The Bear is conflicted about posting these Papaganda videos from his Holiness. They count on them being distributed by ephemera and other internet outlets. If the Bear posts them, he's providing an audience for them. On the other hand, the Bear doubts his audience is easily gulled. So here is the latest video. Apparently we can look forward to these on a regular basis.




Pope Francis addresses his presentation to believers and unbelievers. The Pope doesn't mention the religion he is supposed to be leading. He doesn't mention God. He has stepped out of his Pope role and assumed the role of Universal Sage, stolen from the Dalai Lama, and perhaps giving us a peek of the future of the papacy.

The blandly sinister moment is when the Pope says, "The relationship between poverty and the fragility of the planet requires another way of managing the economy and measuring progress, conceiving a new way of living.  Because we need a change that unites us all." [Obligatory shots of faces of people of different ages and races; one apparently a Muslim.]

Aha! So this isn't a simple message to not trash the planet, or to avoid consumerism. This is a "new way of living" that "unites us all." Not through religion, but through leftist environmental, and economic programs.

It is fascinating to see how Pope Francis views his role in the world. Unfortunately, it seems to have absolutely nothing to do with Catholicism. For more information, visit The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network.

  1. I was driving to an appointment today and noticed the (Georgia) license plate of the car ahead of me: LVUBEAR. Naturally, I immediately thought of THE Bear: "Gosh, the Bear has more influence than I realized." It must have been those trips to Ruby Falls. Now if we could only direct some of that influence to the Primatial See.

    1. The Bear has had nearly 1400 years to plan, to network, to recruit. We have agents in zoos, ready to let out the Bears at one phone call. We have Bear cavalry. Bears on Bears. (You can train a Bear to do anything if you have enough fish.) Does that make sense? No! But it will be really scary.

  2. This thing is soooo new agey, I'm surprised he didn't deliver this talk assuming the lotus position!

    1. Bernie Sanders ought to hire these Jesuits who make these things.

    2. I wouldn't be surprised if these surreal papal video didn't get snapped-up by airlines for use as in-flight movies.

  3. There's something "off" about his syntax in Spanish ... it's as if the message were originally written in English and then translated into Spanish. Not that it makes a difference with respect to the lack of anything Catholic -- it's even more new-agey and cringe-inducing in Spanish, at least I think so.

    I find myself doing this a lot with Francis -- looking to the Spanish original, or Italian original for colloquialisms or ... I'm not sure what I'm looking for. In all my years conducting investigations, however, I've learned to go with it, trusting that I'll recognize it when I've finally found it.

    1. I'm going to have to give him this one, as it's hidden by his desk in an apparently natural way. He's wearing it so it shows, as it peeks out near the end. But the broader point is true: this has zero Catholic content. Which is pretty amazing, if you think about it.

  5. Read Chris Ferrera's analysis of the Pope's recent fawning over the Chinese over at the Fatima Network. Really disturbing stuff. Seemingly he shitcans his whole environmental shtick. The pope is a chameleon.

    1. Seemingly, Francis abandons his whole environmental shtick. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  6. If the Pope preached authentic Catholicism, which has personal sanctification as an essential part of it, these secondary earthly matters would almost take care of themselves, as people free from vice make wise decisions on those earthly matters.

  8. My sentiments from another blog on Video #2

    Care of the earth...protecting it.... I wonder if the unborn is going to get air-time. The blood of the innocents have saturated the ground, we walk and move in their blood which has covered the earth and overshadows creation with death. God will not be mocked on the destruction of his most prized and valuable image of himself by society, we reap what we sow, our world is a jungle of survival with more
    and more dangers. Only a change of hearts will tame the beasts and pasture the land. Don't liter, ok...How about don't kill, maybe we should get that one right before God decides he has had enough. Mother earth, I would worry about Father Heaven and pleasing him.

  9. Well, his Holiness called the world "creation", and said that it is a "gift", implying a Creator and a Giver. So we have some Deistic content even if nothing specifically Christian. But if this is a Prayer Intention, some reference to prayer might have been nice; this seems more like a New Year's Resolution.

    1. Was this a prayer intention video? Since it was addressed to unbelievers, too, I doubt the holy Father would mention prayer. It's just more agitprop.

    2. I also note that, although the video has been up on youtube for about six hours, it has only had 600 views (mostly clickthroughs from One Peter Five?), and has already amassed 16 downvotes. In other news, some puppies predicting the Super Bowl result have garnered 100,000 views in 12 hours. Perhaps if the March video was about "some cute labrador pups that can unite us all", it would go viral.

    3. And it had has much religious content as the Pope's video. If the Pope wasn't all that interested in the Catholic Church, why didn't he just say when elected, "Thanks, but I'm more about the environment and poverty and other religions. I feel uncomfortable speaking about Catholicism. Pick someone else."

  10. I couldn't watch the whole thing, but, he is just far from being a pope. As a Marxist government worker, he'd be fine, but as a priest, Bishop, pope, he's just terrible. He's not a benign terrible, he's an active terrible. If only he'd sit in Santa Marta and meet with Protestant leaders and just talk about how wrong Catholicism has been over the millennia, or how all land must be redistributed, but he doesn't, he ventures out to wave his magic wand and disperse his dandelion heresies hither and yon.
    He is making a mockery of Catholicism. But as we see, a mockery of Catholicism seems to be just what many Cardinals want. With the way things are, even if he were to retire, they'd just put in another.

    1. If the Bear may offer a correction, the holy Father is making a mockery out of the papacy. We must remember that things like "Gifts and Calling" for the Jews are nothing more than glorified news releases. The Church is sound, the Bear is thinking, and as infuriating as it is to watch buffoons play with it, the Bear does not see any changes that could not all be reversed by one good pope.

      The Church is like an airliner taken over by chimpanzees. When the pilots get back in their seats they can set everything right. Let us pray for the health and safety of the holy Father. But let us also pray for an especially wise and courageous pope to come.

  11. Our dear Pope has now positioned himself to be the spokesman for some eco-friendly, green, organic, sustainable clothing manufacturer. Imagine the sensation as he casts aside his dated and manifestly un-envirormental and un-stylish outfit and gets-with the "slow fashion" movement where many eye catching get-ups are now available. This could be very BIG and PROFITABLE.

    1. We have to hand to Pope Francis. He a real merchandiser.

    2. The Bear can imagine him wearing robes with colorful designs made by Peruvian Indians. Or maybe just dye his white outfit orange to appeal to the Dalai Lama's constituency.

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts, and no links to videos. Have a great day!
