Let The Caterwauling Begin

So the new Pope, Francis I, turns out to be rather staunchly, religiously conservative regarding homosexuality, abortion, same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption.  And, of course, pretty much the moment the white smoke drifted out of the stack the mainstream media sludge-dredges started digging for whatever they could find to additionally disparage the new Pope.

So far, the only thing I've seen them could come up with is a bit of questionable activity ‘during the rule of the [Argentine] military junta of 1976-83.’  Certainly not along the lines of the so-called ‘Nazi Pope’ garbage the MSM dredged up during Benedict’s pontificate.

But, as we all know, the ProgLibs in the MSM and in the Roman Catholic Church wouldn’t be happy unless a new Pope donned a rainbow mitre, had a secret illegitimate child somewhere, ditched the crosier (not ‘crow’s ear’) for a turkey-baster full of saline solution, and tossed condoms from the balcony of St. Peter’s on Easter Sunday.  So now they’re tearing their collective hair out over this guy.

As most of my regular readers probably already know, I’m not a Catholic.  Some may or may not know that I consider the Papacy and many of the doctrines of the Catholic Church to be unbiblical;  fewer still know that when it comes to things like this I try very hard to take the position of Gamaliel when he spoke to the Sanhedrin regarding Peter and John (Acts 5:38-39) – if God approves, don’t mess with it; if He doesn’t, it’ll fall apart on its own.

But you don’t have to be a Roman Catholic to get a sad chuckle from the hysterics the ProgLibs are experiencing over Francis I’s installation.  Nor do you have to be Einstein to understand why they’re hysterical.  ProgLibs seems to live the life that’s defined by ‘if it feels good, do it’, and the Christian church is an impediment to that lifestyle: you see, the Christian church – as well as the Jewish synagogue and, to an extent, the Muslim mosque – all teach morality and personal responsibility, which apparently is to ProgLibs as garlic, sunlight, and holy water are to vampires.  They say that the church (and in this case, read ‘the whole Christian thing’) ought to ‘join the 21st Century’ when, in fact, what they want to see is the church entirely destroyed – or, minimally, rendered totally immaterial.

2000-odd years of this kind of thing – attempts left, right, and center – to eliminate the Christian church haven’t worked out; I highly doubt they’ll work any better now.
