Brian Kilmeade is a “Catholic.” Brian Kilmeade works for FOX News. If you think you’re not liable to get much insight from someone who doesn’t see this obvious contradiction, then you’re right.

The story “Fox News Host Tells Pope Francis to Leave U.S.: He Doesn’t Belong Here: Capitalism is Our Savior” reports him as saying the following on air:

Kilmeade: Yeah, I’m Catholic and he could stay home. Some of his comments just have no place. He’s in the wrong country. But I tell you what —

Wallace: What? He’s in the wrong country? What does that mean?

Kilmeade: He doesn’t like capitalism. He blames us and money for what’s going on in the Middle East. He says that global warming — we’ve got to do more to have global warming — we’re doing more than anybody else. Get on China, show some courage. He’s never visited our country before, now he gets around to it and he’s critical going in? I’ve had enough, you know — take on, take on Islam, then talk to me.

[…]

Kilmeade: Tired of the pope.

The story then goes to debunk everything Kilmeade says with the help of a rudimentary Google search:

As always, Fox News is totally ignorant. Pope Francis has spoken out against terrorism and abuse of religion, including Islamic extremism. After the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in France, Pope Francis stated the following:

“Violence is always the product of a falsification of religion”.

“Religious fundamentalism, even before it eliminates human beings by perpetrating horrendous killings, eliminates God himself, turning him into a mere ideological pretext.”

“I express my hope that religious, political and intellectual leaders, especially those of the Muslim community, will condemn all fundamentalist and extremist interpretations of religion which attempt to justify such acts of violence.”

Such Catholic stupid, it burns! Moments like these should make you take PEW reporting on droves of these people leaving as comforting news.

But, it should also remind you of one very important historical fact: Conservatives (NOT LIBERALS) planted American Catholic dissent.

Roman pontiff go home?
