Corsi Asks ‘Is the Pope Catholic’?

Jerome Corsi took a much-needed break from making deluded and idiotic attacks on President Obama to turn his focus to Pope Francis I, who is much too liberal for his tastes. And he wonders if the pope is truly Catholic given some of the things he’s said that Corsi reads far too much into.

The shock to traditional Catholic thinking began when Pope Francis decided to go to the back of the airplane and give an interview to news reporters on the return home from Brazil on his first international trip as pope.

Instead of saying that homosexuality is “an intrinsic moral evil,” as did his predecessor Benedict XVI, Francis responded to a reporter’s question, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

Egads! He sounds like he thinks gay people are actual human beings or something. This will not do. And he’s insufficiently pro-Israel too, evidently.

Pope Francis on the occasion of Rash Hashanah wished Jews a Happy New Year and encouraged an open dialogue on questions of faith.

Still, Giulio Meotti, an Italian journalist writing an op-ed piece in the Israeli National News was not satisfied.

“But as this new letter shows, one of the grave dangers in the Vatican’s dialogue with Judaism is the Church’s attempt to drive a wedge between the ‘good’ and docile Jews of the Diaspora and the ‘bad’ and arrogant Jews of Israel,” Meotti wrote. “Pope Francis has never addressed the Israelis in his messages, nor has he openly defended the Jewish State since he was elected by the College of Cardinals. It seems that there is no room for stubborn, faithful Zionists in the pope’s lenient smile. In his speeches, Jewish national aspirations are ignored, if not denigrated.”

Wow. How…horrible. Oh but wait, at the end of the article we find out that this is all just another adverticle from the Worldnetdaily, designed to sell a movie put out by WND Films that says that Francis is the last pope because the end times are upon us.

But the real fun is found in the comments, where the wingnuts come out in force. There were 600 comments in a few hours on this one, most of them absolutely bizarre.

I found it odd right from the get go that the previous Pope just up and quit….I think he was forced out because he wouldn’t do what this new guy is more than willing to do….water down Christianity to make way for the one world religion…A religion where Jesus will not be the main star…

There is no longer doubt in my mind with regards to this man! He is the FORERUNNER to the ‘False Prophet,’ NO DOUBT! Perhaps even the ‘False Prophet’ himself. To say-“Who am I to judge.” You’re just the Pope, that’s all!!! Then to top it off with-“Atheists can go to Heaven.” By saying that Atheists can go to Heaven, is calling God a LIAR! PLEASE COME BACK JESUS!!!

And then there’s this guy:

Just as Obama’s acts indicate that he feels that he is above all law (save his own), this Pope is likewise making up his own “law” blaspheming the Torah, the Bible and the Catholic Church doctrine. As such, it’s becoming increasingly possible that — just as the popular lawless Obama, this popular “final Pope” (per the Malachi prophecy) is ignoring/violating/contradicting the RCC doctrine. Is this, in fact, the False Prophet — making up his own personal doctrine — as many prophets previously warned? Will Obama establish the UN New World Order and Francis will establish the “one size fits all” One World Religion? Do we have the Antichrist and the False Prophet??? The ducks are falling into line, and the handwriting is appearing on the wall. Do your own research and formulate your own postulations.

    Does he also question where bears shit?

  • busterggi

    Of course the pope is Catholic – he shits in the woods.

  • doublereed

    Did this also happen with Vatican II?

  • zenlike

    As a ‘liberal’, I find it offensive that a right-wing über-conservative theocrat like the new pope is actually considered ‘too liberal’ by some nutjobs.

  • Mr Ed

    To say-”Who am I to judge.” You’re just the Pope, that’s all!!!

    Remember what happened to the last guy that said we should judge each other

    >1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again

  • zenlike

    But I am actually more appalled that the supposed ‘liberal media’ is fawning all over the new guy because he doesn’t consider LGBT’s to be inhuman monsters.

  • zippythepinhead

    Yes, I agree, this pope is WAY too liberal. I need a fire-and-brimstone, damn the heathen unbelievers preaching pope, who will alienate thinking catholics and the rest of the world and make the church as irrelevant and asinine as I think it is. But THIS guy, he’s so adorable. I just fucking hate him.

  • Pope Frankie is “too liberal” in the sense that Generalissimo Franco was “too liberal” on the ASS grid*, being a mere 5 with Mags Thatcher a 1 and you-know-who a 10.

    Don’t forget that he also said atheists can get into heaven*.

  • @doublereed #3 – “Did this also happen with Vatican II?”

    Yup. The result was a movement among ultra-traditionalist Catholics to declare that every pope after Pius XII has been an anti-pope. They are called sedevacantists, from a Latin phrase meaning “the seat is empty.” Mel Gibson is part of this movement.

  • I thought Saint Malarky…er, Saint Malachi, predicted the last Pope is called Peter the Roman. Hard to shoehorn Francis into either the Peter or Roman designations.

  • @timgueguen – Ah, but there is an out. Most of the “prophesy” is just a list of mottos, without any explanation. The last entry breaks that pattern: rather than a motto, it starts a new paragraph with an incomplete sentence. So, obviously, there will be at least one pope not on the list who will hold power until “the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church”.

    Ain’t that convenient?

  • David Marjanović

    Perhaps he saw and believed the Onion article

    “Rebooting Satan with darker backstory”. That I want to see. 🙂

  • John Pieret

    Typical Talibangelicals. All they are interested in is authoritarian imposition of their own social beliefs on others and they can’t be bothered to read their own supposed rulebook enough to recognize that Francis was paraphrasing Jesus.

  • dingojack

    But seriously, I really need to know – do bears shit in the Vatican?

    😉 Dingo

  • busterggi

    Of course not Dingo – they shit in ashrams just as other yogis do.

  • mvemjsun

    It would be nice if he is the last pope. Not because Jesus comes back that is just stupid. But because god followers finially realize that their beliefs are bat shit crazy. Too bad that is only a dream.

  • freemage

    Now I’m picturing Obama starring in a spaghetti western, complete with score by Ennio Morricone, trying to find Glenn Beck’s hidden cache of gold, probably in Utah.

    Stalin, right? Or Mao?

  • I thought Saint Malarky…er, Saint Malachi, predicted the last Pope is called Peter the Roman. Hard to shoehorn Francis into either the Peter or Roman designations.

    The Pope sits on the throne of St Peter in Rome. I think that gives them more than enough room to shoehorn in any pope regardless of his name.

    Contrary to Gray’s comment, I assume that demo meant Frankenberger.

    I don’t get it. Is it a joke? Who’s Frankenberger?

    No? Maybe this then …

    You think Lenin likes pointing out you’re an outlet?



  • birgerjohansson

    Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot all qualify for a ten. Maybe we should have a two-dimensional scale with one axis descriping the degree of rejecting reality? That way we can get the Noth Korean leaders high o the Y axis, even though they did not murder or starve quite as many as the others.

    — — — — — — — — — — — — —

    If you have a chief of state (of the Vatican) that was chummy with Argentinian dictators in his youth, he would qualify for a 1 on the X axis but get rather high on the Y axis.

  • The “Fool” on this blog (that be you, johnnyboy) speaks strings of words that amount to gibberish when analyzed.


    Johnnyboy don’t like him some Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot ‘cuz they’re all them bad atheists. He should like my pick just fine, him bein’ a nice KKKristian Nazi.

    Johnnyboy notes them godless commies racked up a bigger body-count than any reactionary or radical nationalist ever did. Progressives always be itchin’ to off the insufficiently progressive. Political Potential indeed.

    Adolf Frankenberger, dictator of Germany from 1933 until 1945.

    Re jonathangray @ #34

    Actually, the Raping Children Church and it’s counterparts in the Reformation racked up a much larger body count as a fraction of the population of Central Europe at the time during the Thirty Years War. It was fortunate that Albrecht von Wallenstein, Count Tilly, and King Gustavus Adolphus didn’t have 20th century weapons or that region might have been totally depopulated.

  • Clueless fucks FTW, Alex.

    A.) “He says really stupid shit that he thinks other people can’t fisk”

    B.) “What is a ‘Johnnyboy Gray’?”

    “Johnnyboy notes them godless commies racked up a bigger body-count than any reactionary or radical nationalist ever did. Progressives always be itchin’ to off the insufficiently progressive. Political Potential indeed.”

    Well, golly, johnny, if you only talk about the 1914–2012, you’d maybe have a micropoint. But that would require that your grasp of the history of war from about 2000 years before the supposed birth of JESUS was completely lacking.

    And that’s not even getting into the MILLIONS of deaths and wholesale destruction of groups caused by the various plagues, in no small part because the RCC shut off scientific inquiry as a matter of policy.
