Pope Francis has been the so-called Christian left’s poster-child.
He’s supported LGBT policies and promotes the myth of man-made global warming.
But you won’t believe what Pope Francis just told Michael Moore in their closed-door meeting.
Pope Francis recently had a heart-to-heart with socialist filmmaker Michael Moore.
Michael Moore asked the Pope if the American system of capitalism is sinful and the Pope responded with an emphatic “yes.”
The Pope also expressed being a fan of Michael Moore’s work.
He told Moore to “make more movies.”
Moore’s last documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9” bashes Trump and conservatives repeatedly.
However, it bombed in theaters, barely making more than production costs.
Moore also made “Capitalism: A Love Story” where he paints capitalism as a scheme used by the rich to keep the poor people poor; a communist talking point.
But Pew Research found that capitalism helped almost 700 million people rise to $10/day middle income wages from a poverty-stricken $2/day in just the 21st century alone.
The “Fahrenheit 11/9” documentarian said Francis then grabbed his arm and asked for his prayers. Moore said he reciprocated, requested the pope’s prayers. “No, you have to make more movies,” Moore said the pope quipped in response.
“He has a sense of humor,” Moore said.
While it’s not immediately clear whether Moore’s recollection of his conversation with Francis is entirely accurate, the pope has frequently rebuked income inequality and the “idolatry of money.”
In 2013, for example, he criticized “trickle-down economics,” describing the philosophy as a “crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system.”
This isn’t the first time Pope Francis has toed the liberal line.
He has claimed that man-made global warming is turning the earth into a desert and is mostly due to human activity.
He also told one gay person that God made him that way.
Should Pope Francis resign before he makes any more of a mockery of Christianity than he already has?
