Pope Francis says to ignore the poor… May 18, 2016

is to despise God.

On a related note: Obama is trying to get overtime pay for four million US workers while a grateful and generous Party of God and Family and Life and Supporting the Troops just voted to cut the GI Bill housing stipend in half for children of military service members.

The Party of God and Family and Life and Supporting the Troops would be considerably more believable if it did not consistently use the unborn as human shields for consistently evil policies that only serve to encourage more abortions in military families that are already forced to go on welfare frequently since we screw them over.

And when all this is pointed out, a huge number of “conservatives” will have nothing at all to say about the question of which actions are good and which are evil, but only about the question “Whose side are you on?” I am on the side of the least of these, as Holy Church says to be.

“What do you think? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he repented and went. And he went to the second and said the same; and he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” (Mt 21:28–31).

The wreckage created by Christians seduced into worrying about parties and away from listening to Holy Church is seen in the fear that praising Obama for doing the right thing and condemning the screwing of troops by the GOP is somehow ritually defiling illustrates everything wrong with the seduction of the Church in this hour. Listen to the Church, not party politics. Do the right thing regardless of who profits or is hurt politically.

“Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. ¶ On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’(Mt 7:21–23).
