Catholics are calling Pope Francis a hypocrite after what he said about persecuted Christians

56

To say that Catholics are upset with Pope Francis is an understatement.

He is doing everything he can to have the church that built Western Civilization appease a mob that wants to destroy it.

And now Catholics are calling Pope Francis a hypocrite after what he said about persecuted Christians.

Taking up the cause of protecting persecuted Christians is a great one.

There is no group in the modern day more persecuted for their beliefs than Christians, especially in third world Middle Eastern countries.

In many parts of the world, being a Christian is a death sentence to mobs of radical Islamic extremists.

For his part, Pope Francis spent time over the weekend praising the witness of those who face violence and death for “merely the fact of being Christians.”

One of the difficulties faced by followers of Christ is “the physical threat against them, that is, direct persecution against them personally, to the point of being killed,” Pope Francis told crowds gathered in Saint Peter’s Square.

“How many Christians are persecuted even today throughout the world!” he said. “They suffer for the Gospel with love, they are the martyrs of our day. And we can say with certainty that there are more of them than the martyrs of the early times: so many martyrs, merely for the fact of being Christians.”

He spoke about how those killed can only lose their body, but not their soul, adding that “the only fear that a disciple should have is to lose this divine gift.”

But his words don’t mean much to many Christians considering that Francis has done little to actually stop this persecution, and in many cases have supported the very people leading this persecution.

Pope Francis has been a supporter of the mass importation of refugees from the Middle East to Europe and the United States.

Now that persecution is being spread to those areas, where Christians are routinely attacked in grizzly attacks by Islamic radicals brought in as refugees.

In fact, on the very same day he took time to defend refugees.

“The coronavirus crisis has highlighted the need to ensure the necessary protection for refugees, in order to guarantee their dignity and safety,” he said.

The cause of defending Christian refugees can be a good one, but more often than not, the refugees being imported into first world countries are not Christian, and instead bring the very oppression Christians face in the Middle East to the countries they move to.

And just removing people from those areas does nothing to fix the underlying problems at hand.

Do you think Pope Francis should stop supporting mass immigration?

  2. Some pope
    all he has done is to criticize Trump.
    He should focus on his job and stay out of politics in the USA.

  3. Catholicism is false Christianity. They worship idols, pray repetitive prayers, add works to salvation, put men’s words above the Word of God, and preach a false Jesus with a false doctrine.

  4. Reminds me of what the Catholic Church did after WE2. They helped war criminals escape justice by giving aid to Mengele and others by providing sanctuary, falsified paperwork and money to assist war criminals to escape to South America. His job is to give spiritual guidance not be involved in politics. Clean your own house Pope, get rid of the child molesting priests

  5. He supports homosexualality, pedophilia, open borders and abortion of infants after they are born. Yeah, now that’s a real catholic leader!

  6. Joseph Callahan commented on the Huffington Post in 2015:

    “It is pretty hard now days to turn on the television or open a newspaper without hearing about ‘the war on Christianity’ and see devout believers lamenting on how horribly they are ‘persecuted’ in America today. With gay marriage, abortion and atheists removing God from every aspect of the government, it seems pretty obvious that we secular citizens are using separation of church and state as a new battlefield against religion. How horrible a life American Christians must be forced to live.

    “In Iran, Christians are being executed for their faith. In Myanmar, you can be thrown in prison just for owning a Bible. In North Korea, well, you face death just for believing any god exists. The 2015 report from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) shows that thirteen million people have fled seven countries (Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Central African Republic (CAR), Eritrea, Burma, and Afghanistan). Many of those displaced are Christians, and mostly due to fear of violence and/or death.

    “The Bible, and distributing it, is restricted in over fifty countries worldwide, and spreading the gospel will land you in jail or executed in many of those. But none of this compares to the wholly American horror of (possibly) being forced to bake a cake for a gay wedding! How could we compare the American ‘war on Christianity’ to the Christians (and other religious beliefs) persecuted worldwide? I mean, our own little bubble, and our own discomforts in the first world are all that really matter. The rest of the world isn’t us, so we shouldn’t compare ourselves to them, right?

    “In America today, you can proudly say, ‘I’m a Christian’ and carry a Bible with you everywhere you go. You can go to any church you want to without being arrested. You can say anything you want! You can even proclaim that you worship the Giant Spaghetti Monster, and all the persecution you will receive is strange looks from some people.’

    “Yet, in this, one of the most religiously tolerant nations, Christians are screaming persecution just because our laws are changing to embrace everyone’s belief structure. By not allowing one faith to force their beliefs down our legal throats, the country has launched a ‘war’ on (one specific) faith.”

    Anyone perceived to be Muslim, like Sikhs, Hindus, Bahai’s and Buddhists, often face the same discrimination. Religious minorities in this country are merely asking for the same level of consideration and equal treatment given to Christians.

    It was reported in the Indo-American press in either the ’90s or 2000s that a coalition of Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains were going to court to demand a completely religion-neutral society, which does not favor one religion over another, nor one set of beliefs or disbeliefs over another.

    I’m Hindu, not Muslim. The fact that American liberals refer derisively to the Christian right in this country as “the American Taliban” indicates disdain for the Islamic Taliban. Secularists are NOT atheists.

  7. Vase-whatever. When your religion is attacked and your right to assemble and your churches , temples, statues & etc. are being burned, torn down-let us know. Because as Hindu-you are one the protected ones by the media. It wouldn’t PC to talk bad about your faith.

  8. According to the Sharia law (the religion of peace???):
    • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
    • Girls’ clitoris should be cut (Muhammad’s words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
    • Theft is punishable by amputation of the hands (Quran 5:38).
    • Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
    • Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
    • Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death (see Allah moon god).
    • A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death (See Compulsion).
    • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
    • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
    • A woman or girl who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
    • Testimonies of 4 male witnesses are required to prove rape of a female (Quran 24:13).
    • A woman or girl who alleges rape without producing 4 male witnesses is guilty of adultery.
    • A woman or girl found guilty of adultery is punishable by death (see “Islamophobia”).
    • A male convicted of rape can have his conviction dismissed by marrying his victim.
    • Muslim men have sexual rights to any woman/girl not wearing the Hijab (see Taharrush).
    • A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
    • A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Quran 4:34 and Religion of Peace).
    • A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a wife needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
    • A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
    • A woman’s testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man’s.
    • A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Mathematics in Quran).
    • A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
    • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal.”
    • Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

  9. How about the mass conversion of Muslims to Christianity as Ann Coulter told us to do back on 9/11?
    “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.” Ann Coulter
    That’s a plan. And it’s the only plan that will work.

  10. Ray, good observations. I thought it was only me that did not respect this guy, even when he is supposedly interpreting religious law. I definitely think he is not a Catholic in his other actions.

  11. I’m not religious but this Pope is always saying things that makes me wonder if he believes in his own religion. He kisses the ass of Islam the religion that slaughters Christians and wants to rule the globe. You don’t look strong bowing to Islam, in fact you look weak and they will come after you if you do. They don’t want to be your friends, they want to rule you! Nuff said!

  12. I left the Catholic Church early, as soon as I figured out this Pope and what he stands for.

  13. Pope Francis is actually acting as a Christian, but American RCs are so unchristian that they reject saving non-Christians from persecution in their homelands. And these same RCs and evangelical “Christians” are quick to persecute and condemn Americans that are not in line with their vision including the LGBT community, the poor, and even POC.
    I’m not RC, but I applaud Pope Francis for standing up for the lesser of all people.

  14. All refugees the Pope awaits you with open arms. Go to the Vatican were it is safe behind walls. He will give shelter and feed you and give you medical. You all will be safe with Pope Francis. Hurry he is waiting. If he turns you down, have him come to the square and explain why he won’t let you in. Maybe because he’s a hypocrite. Maybe you can convert him to Muslim.

  15. The importing of refuges is the humane thing to do, But when that refuge is shouting kill Christians and hate your country they are terrorist. If you have a room of 50 refugees and you know that there is 10 terrorist in the group, how do you pick them out. I agree with President Trump about restricting refugees from certain radical Muslim countries unlike ObamASS who knowingly brought Muslims to AMERICA. And we are now fighting them in our streets.

  16. I see the pope as evil as most priests and the high clergy in thst unholy body of so called christians

  17. I see the pope as evil as most priests and the high clergy in thst unholy body of so called christians

  18. Pope Francis is the Vicar and False prophet for the coming Antichrist. He works with Globalists for satan’s will that billions of souls will go to hell being denied the GOSPEL of Christ. The Pope is head of the ONE World Religion that prays for the damnation of human souls in order to save planet earth. He is the most disgusting apostate pontiff in human history. He is leading the Roman Catholic Church to its final genocide by financial and sexual corruption by 2040.

  19. Pope Francis should keep his papal nose out of politics and tend to pope stuff. He is a very bad pope, a shame to the position of leader of the christian world. He is the obamanation of popehood except he is catholic instead of muslim.

  20. It is so easy for people who live in super secure gated communities like the Hollywood Elite, Politicians, and Popes to tell us, Peasants, how we should live our lives. Telling us what we should and should not do and how we should open our country, our neighborhoods, and our hearts to anyone and everyone who wants to enter the country. How we should except other customs and religions and how we will be better for it. All the while they are protected for the real problems by the high walls of their gated communities and their Armed Security Guards and their Armed Bodyguards. Why is it that we the Peasants must endure all of the problems caused by others while the Elite sits in their protected communities completely isolated from the world. It must be nice to be so caring and giving, especially when you are giving away my money and freedom, but I should rejoice in the knowledge that when I die I will be rewarded in heaven.

  21. The pope should stop supporting mass immigration. His holiness should stick to matters concerning the catholic faith. The pope is wrong when he said we should appease the mob. That’s like say surrender your nations rich american heritage. You give the mob one inch, they’ll want more even to the point of a whole nation. God wants us to defend ourselves when we have to.

  22. The Catholic Church was built on paganism, look at its past. While your at it, look at the horrible things it did behind its own closed doors. When ever I saw anyone kissing the pope’s ring, it made me sick to my stomach because he is nothing more than a mere man…no God, just a man. Just this alone tells you how important history is…so man can find the truth.

  23. pope francis is the false prophet of Revelation. He supports every false religion on earth and expects Christians to bow to pagan “gods”.

  24. Muslims hate Christians and anyone else that is not a muslim.
    This is straight from mohammed’s mouth. mohammed said to enslave them, kill them or any other means to eliminate them. Their only salvation is/was to convert to islam

  25. Come on Sharon, he’s not worth the effort. We all learned that a long time ago. Leave him/her/whatever alone and he will go away.

  26. I was born into the Catholic Church, many years ago (9/1940) and remained in good standing until Pope Francis came along. I no longer consider myself a Catholic and will remain outside the Church until he is gone.

  27. Catholic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim: no persecution, no genocide, no infanticide — we are all the children of Abraham. We ALL matter.

  28. This false profit Anti – Christ will put the final nail in the coffin of the Catholic Church.
    There have been many evil popes (no cap on purpose) in history, this one will be credited as the one that brought it all down, and as for as I’m concerned, on purpose.
    The degenerate priests and cardinals ( again no caps on purpose) that put this guy in power will no doubt pay a severe price in the afterlife they so vehemently promote.

  29. Politics is dirty. The Pope wears two hats, 1) as a Politician being the president of the Vatican and as a religious leader for the Roman Catholic Church.

    In Matthews 6:24, Jesus says “no one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and money.

    In Mark 12:17, Jesus says, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.”

    As you can see, the Pope has a huge problem with Jesus.

  30. He spoke about how those killed can only lose their body, but not their soul, adding that “the only fear that a disciple should have is to lose this divine gift.” HUH????? Really????? Does he have any clue that once you come to Jesus and are saved you CANNOT lose Him?? He will never turn His back on those who belong to Him. If “pope” Francis knows anything at all about Jesus he would know that you cannot be unsaved

  31. Omar…yes, ALL lives matter. But it is up to us to choose God or satan and whether we will spend eternity in Heaven or Hell. God created and loves all of us, but He does not force Himself on us. He gives us free will to follow Him or satan

  32. vasu…You keep coming here and proving that you know nothing at all about God, Jesus, or Christianity. Study the Bible and get educated instead of making a fool of yourself

  33. I’ve called him a hypocrite for years. He has criticized the U.S. for wanting to erect a border wall in order to protect our nation, but the Vatican sits comfortably behind very tall walls with some of the best and most highly trained security in the world with (the Pontifical Swiss Guard).

  34. There are a lot of psycho Jesus nuts on this page, lol
    Good luck getting into Heaven or Hell, ffs
    Where ever you nuts end up – I’m happy to be anywhere else

  35. As a former RC much of what the pope pushes has been pushed by the lower leadership. I agree with many of the honest remarks, not attacks, in this thread. I used to ask what RC always voted democrats when the democrats always seem to go against the churches teaching on everything. Those of us who live the Christian life fo it by the good book — the Bible for those other ones. But the democrats push the homosexual agenda, the pro-choice agenda, no school voucher, a fair immigrstion system where one goes to a local embassy to apply to immigrat ( same for most countries in the world to immigrat to other countries) and go through the normal vetting, instead illegals are pushed to the head of the line, and more. I left the RC church years ago. Homosexuals are permitted to worship at evangelical churches, they will be preached to about their sins, same with pot abortion people and illegal immigrants (who if they ask will be assisted to become legal). It may not true in every church since most evangelical churches are independent and develop their own articles of faith and ordinants based on the Bible. Each of the non Christian communities attevkmusattack for our beliefs but want us to honor their. Sorry, can’t do if you can have a civil conversation on any of the subjects. Same with the Pope, preaches one way then puts out letter opposite……

  36. I think the Pope should GO! I DO NOT agree with him encouraging “so called refugees” to come in masses and be allowed here just to turn on Christians. He IS A PROBLEM! He has NO IDEA if they are terrorists !! It’s already happened to America! He’s quite a hypocrite in my book and SHOULD NOT be able to be the Pope!Get him out! He’s NOT the gospel and he is NOT GOD.

  37. Vasu Murti, When you tell us what You as a person are doing to address the persecution, arrests and executions of dozen’s of Christians in India, then maybe I will read and listen to your posts.

  38. Pretty hard to defend something you don’t believe in! And he does not believe in the Bible or it’s content! He has proven that over and over! Supports homosexuality, pedophila, abortion on demand, open borders except his own! The list goes on and on.

  39. Hey, Papa, Pope of the Vatican, remember, Popes of the past, referred to Christianity , which is the second Judaism, Catholicism is the second Christianity, do not try to appease Islam haters of Judaism and Christianity, it will not work.

  40. Man, this Mfer is Lucifer in disguise. Middle East Christians escaped persecution in the Middle East only to be persecuted here in there new home in the western world….thanks to this mf’in pope’s support of refugees and open borders. I have lost all respects to all catholic priests and the pope. I no longer go to church to listen to these fools. I read my holy bible at home, and I talk to Jesus directly… I don’t need a freakin middle man to convey my message to God. Yo Lucifer pope, stick to preaching the gospel, keep your Lucifer views out of politics.

  41. Refugees have the same right to live free regardless of their religion and not be persecuted by the Christians who oppose them for their religious beliefs. Pope Francis is right and American RCs are nothing but shills for the alt-right. Any persecution they get is both trivial and deserved.
