|(John Allen, Jr with Maria Elena Bergoglio, Francis' sister)|
John Allen was formerly a reporter for the National Catholic Reporter and is currently an associate editor of the Boston Globe. The quotes below are taken from a story written by Michele Dargan that appeared in the Palm Beach Daily News, Judaism ‘won the lottery’ with new pope.
John Allen, Jr. opens his remarks to the ADL meeting with this joke,
“I know you have a jam-packed schedule and limited time, so as Henry the Eighth said to each of his wives, ‘I won’t keep you long,’”Wow, joking about the person responsible for the deaths of thousands of people not to mention the souls lost. As well as creating his own religion, Henry VIII helped destroy the institution of marriage. Guess Allen was playing to his perfidious kosher audience.
Allen goes on to dicuss, “the tsunami in Catholicism that was unleashed” with the election of Jorge Bergoglio on March 13, 2013.
He then discusses Francis' trip to Rio in 2013 for World Youth Day.
When he arrived and started to step out of the “Popemobile,” a group of Brazilian nuns rushed him “shrieking like a bunch of teenage girls at a Justin Bieber concert.”Can you picture that? Did they throw their underwear at him?
After dropping the above bombshells, Allen gets to the meat of his message:
In regards to Catholic/Jewish relations under this pope, Allen told the ADL group, “You basically won the lottery.”
Most Latin American cardinals have no experience with Judaism, and many are pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli, Allen said. Bergoglio is the exception.
“Pope Francis regards the relationship with Judaism as the primordial interfaith relationship of the Catholic church and the one that, by far, is the most important and in which he is the most invested,” Allen said. “Ladies and gentlemen, you have a friend in Pope Francis.”With all his connections and his insights, Allen ends up by describing the theme Francis has for his reign:
“In the long run, Francis is going to be remembered as the ‘pope of mercy.’ Everything he is doing — from the policy on gays and lesbians and divorced and remarried Catholics — is calculated so that when the outside world looks at the Catholic Church, they will perceive a community of mercy — a community that doesn’t just pay lip service to mercy but actually practices it.”Did you catch that? Francis who claims to shun the attention of the world and publicly has stated the media misunderstands and distorts what he says. At the same time he runs his policies off of a feedback loop of how the media perceives him! If that isn't insanity!
So to recap,
- Francis is a tsunami in Catholicism or a series of waves which destroy everything in its path,
- Novus Ordo nuns act like shrieking teenage girls towards Francis as opposed to respecting him,
- The Jews got the best possible Pope. In other words, the one who furthers their agenda and leaves them in their spiritual darkness,
- and Francis wants to be known as a the 'pope of mercy'. He runs his agenda according to how the secular world perceives him not how God views him.
May God have mercy on us and this man called Francis.
