At the end of the Christian Middle Ages, it was papal idolatry, the prolonged and profoundly ingrained love and pursuit of wealth and secular power that disillusioned Catholic scholar and priest, Martin Luther, exploded into a megaton fusion blast called, The Protestant Reformation.
Europe was never the same and the once almost unified religion of Catholic Christianity was forever shattered to bits. The Protestant Reformation was European Christendom’s profound, intractable denial of Jesus’ passionate and poetic divine call for unity among his people.
And today, the Christian world (i.e., Western Civilization) is being torn asunder by another idolater: none other than Pope Francis (nee Mario Bergoglio), Bishop of Rome.
What makes Pope Francis an idolater?
Pope Francis is a radical leftist.
That means his true religion is radical leftist political philosophy, not the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ.
And that means that Pope Francis has no regard whatsoever for objective reality and “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” which form the bedrock of the Christian worldview.
Here are a few examples taken from his latest letter that demonstrate the rotten black corruption of Pope Frances:
- “I know that you have committed yourselves to fight for social justice, to defend our Sister Mother Earth and to stand alongside migrants.”
“Sister Mother Earth” harkens a return to pagan religions.
And “social justice” is left code for totalitarian state control over every aspect of society.
2. “First, the ecological crisis is real. “A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system.”
Global warming is a proven hoax and there is no such thing as “scientific consensus.”
Pope Francis is thus, a liar.
And like any leftist who is intelligent enough, patient enough and ruthless enough to acquire a position of power, Pope Francis knows that he is lying.
3. “Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions.”
In this truly evil statement, Pope Francis not only willfully lies but he uses the time honored leftist tactic called moral equivalence to deny the existence of the Islamic Jihad.
The fact is that the Islamic Jihad is the perennial enemy of Christian Western Civilization and has been trying to destroy it since the Jihad stormed out of Arabia in the 7th century Anno Domini.
But there is one thing Pope Francis said in his latest letter that I can get behind:
“Where there is error, let us sow truth.”
Pope Francis through his in-your-face lying and brazen idolatry, has untethered Western Civilization from reality: the Gospel teachings of Jesus and the exceptional civilization that they spawned.
Nevertheless, I would like to introduce modern humanity to today’s Martin Luther:
Donald Trump, long may you run.
