Trump Right on Catholic Church

Post by bobbo_the_Pragmatist » Fri Apr 12, 2019 9:10 pm



So, a quick youtube to back up what Bannon said a few years ago and is putting into practice now with his "anti-Pope" critique. It was on Morning Joe this morning and the fun part was seeing the roundtable of Catholics poo poo it.

The truth. A hard pill for people to swallow. Those in leadership being a cloistered group raised on lies, none more so than the Pope.

Ha, ha: 'The TRUTH.....you can't handle the Truth."

yea verily.

Bannon on the Pope: "“He’s the administrator of the church, and he’s also a politician,” said Bannon, a former adviser to President Donald Trump. “This is the problem. … He’s constantly putting all the faults in the world on the populist nationalist movement.” https://www.patheos.com/blogs/deaconsbe ... e-francis/

Issue by issue over the centuries (Celibacy, no women) or in more recent times (Pedophilia)....its easy to argue the Church/Religion does as much harm as good. And one point: the impulse to care for our fellow man is easily seperable from religion. Why not have the good without getting all caught up in the bad? BIG LIE No 14: The Church is the source for all morality. Thats how they roll.

This is exactly why people so distrust organised religion.

If they would just stop going to church (particularly with their great big mouths agape, ready to be spoonfed whatever BS benefits their church's politicians the most), they could keep their gods and I'd be happy to live alongside them.

I don't think anyone who believes in their own god is dangerous.

People who believe in other peoples' gods are a serious threat to everything and everyone around them.

By this I simply mean that everyone who believes in god has his own unique god. His concept of god is not going to be like anyone else's.

If he believes in his own god, he's merely irrational.

When he starts letting other people overwrite his god, he's a brainwashed menace.

My own worthwhile definition of belief in God: that relationship a person has with his own god..................if any (I had to add that)

My own worthwhile definition of religion: politics or fraud based on the context.

Politics: telling others of your own belief and urging for them to adopt it.

Fraud: taking advantage of true believers who want to get into politics.

Its an unending branching tree of pragmatic application.

..cos apparently they aren't as rabidly anti-refugee as his Evangelical enablers and the Right in general (link).

But at least it's helping some in Letting Go of God:


“We’re losing an entire generation. They’re just gone. It’s one of the worst things to happen to the Church.”

Simply have to add this offtopic: "“White evangelical Protestants who regularly attend church (that is, once a week or more) approve of Trump at rates matching or exceeding those of white evangelicals who attend church less often.” Indeed, during the period from July 2018 to January 2019, 70 percent of white evangelicals who attend church at least once a week approved of Trump, versus 65 percent of those who attend religious services less often."

And after church, we'll attend this, https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/10/politics ... index.html :heh:

I thought tv told me that non religious types believe in refugee rights than do evangelicals. Wasn't this a plan of Satan? To go the Earth and get identified as Jeebus? I think he missed and we got Trump?

Offtopic continued...

For a growing number of evangelicals, Trump’s dehumanizing tactics and cruelty aren’t a bug; they are a feature.

Goes to show that it's religiously about the little man in themselves and not the fictitious Big Man in the sky.
