Skip to comments.Jimmy Carter, Ex-President and Anti-Catholic Bigot, Attacks Pope John Paul II

Bad enough that James Earl Carter, Jr. is the worst president this country has had not named James Buchanan or Barack Obama, but he is also an anti-Catholic bigot as his latest mind droppings amply demonstrate:
Former US President Jimmy Carter has disclosed that he had angry exchanges with Pope John Paul II about liberation theology and about the ordination of women.
The former president said that he complained to the Pontiff about the Churchs perpetuation of the subservience of women while Blessed John Paul II was visiting the US in 1978, and there was more harshness when we turned to the subject of liberation theology. Carter said that he classified the Pope as a fundamentalist, placing him in that category along with Irans late Ayatollah Khomeini.
In the same interview Carter said that it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies, although he suggestedmaybe arbitrarilythat churches should not be required by law to solemnize same-sex unions.

God needs to call Jimmah up to answer for his rudeness and ignorance.
On the other hand, putting JPII in the same category with Bernard Law is absolutely a fair cop.
JpII is at least a mixed bag of beautific and horrific. There is nothing good in the peanut farmer’s resume.
Dang. When I first saw jimmah was in the news I kinda thought he and nellie mandeli might be sharing a room. I don’t suppose this meddlesome asshat will ever go away.
Over here, Jimmy.
Being criticized by Jimmy Carter is a badge of honor.
Worst President? There’s a serious contest going on in recent times for worst President.
It’s getting tougher and tougher to win the Worst President Prize.
Not to mention Woodrow Wilson, FDR, JFK, and LBJ.
Jimmy Carter is feeling a little spunky now he has a worse socialist in the white hut.
Carter said that he classified the Pope as a fundamentalist, placing him in that category along with Irans late Ayatollah Khomeini.
Can someone explain how Jimmy Carter , a non Catholic, gets to criticize the church?
Speaking of the Ayatollah, why didn't you stand up to him the same way during the hostage crisis , huh Jimmuh????
So, was Jimmy supporting Liberation Theology, or opposing it?
“angry exchanges with Pope”
most people would have had more respect for the Pope.
But not this marxist idiot!
And therein lies the rub. Marriage (a religious act), makes holy the union of a man and a woman. Man cannot make holy what God has declared as not being so.
I’m sure that Jimmy’s concerns weighed heavily with the Pope.
Don’t forget he’s also a muzzie lovin anti-semite.
Jimmy Carter is like John Kerry or Joe Biden
Whatever the “issue of the day” is, you can always count on them to be exactly 100% wrong. They are like a compass - It always points North, so you know exactly which direction is South.
Is it possible to be just an "anti-Catholic", without also being an "anti-Catholic bigot"?
Oh !!! He will go away. we all do.
In Jimmy’s case it will be no great loss.
There’s a fine line which you straddle.
Men like JP II and President Reagan have bad guys ployying to assassinate them. No one would even bother with Jimmy Carter. On his best days, he reminds me of Reverend Cyril Playfair with his tiddlywinks in “The Quiet Man”.
also in solidarity with the people of El Salvador (CISPES)
Just when you think Jimmah couldn’t get more vile.
Carter was a Marxist.
Yup. We all go away. Some hang around for what seems like eternity. You know when 5 minutes drags like it was 5 hours.
Indeed it is.
JFK had some economic redeeming features and didn’t live long enough to do terrible things to the country domestically. His foreign policy however was kind of a mixed bag of stupidity and cowardice.
Jimmy Carter is one of those folks who believe that Religion is an important vehicle for promoting the current fads from universities and socialists. It has nothing to do with God as some big boss guy who exists outside of the Liberal mind.Jimmy is a Liberal and a such he believes most likely that Humanity is God and the Liberal Professors and intellectuals are God’s Brain.
The Holy Father was going through a line of government official from some tin pot dicator, and that priest was in the receiving line.
He received quite the tongue lashing from JPII, in front of everyone there.
He dropped to his knees darn quick.
What church will he go after next? He does not like Southern Baptists and now Catholics. Wish he would just be quiet.
Any church that doesn’t cave into the ghey.
Democrats wrote a law to replace the American voter.
From unionizing government, to Vietnam, to the 1965 Immigration Act, JFK was the end of us.
However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Bostons WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedys blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFKs legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies. Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.
I had forgotten about that Immigration act.
It goes much farther than that, he also unionized the government and all that meant to our culture and history, and emptied the mental hospitals, creating homelessness and all that meant to our culture and history, started the Vietnam war and all that meant to our culture and history, cost us Cuba, and all that meant to our culture and history.
Jimmy - man of peace - Carta...... aka peanut head. Exactly who puts any weight or credence in what this lib light weight says. He was an embarassment in the white house and continues down that road. I wonder if he and obama are twins.... Hey Jimmy great job on the peace thing....
As a Georgian, I’d like to offer my most sincere apology from the citizens of the State this fool hales from.
Do you have the equivalent of the Wilsonian style quota system? It’s an eyeopener.
I knew about Viet Nam and Cuba but I put that under foreign policy. He did reduce tax rates, though, highly unusual for a Democrat.
The problem is that his stealing the election, led to our destruction, JFK should never have been president.
He’s making my head hurt.
Hey Jimmah this man defers with your characterization of JP2.
“Few individuals have had a greater impact not just religious but socially and morally on the modern world. He will stand as the most influential moral voice of our time”.
~ The Reverend Billy Graham, from the forword of Pope John Paul II: A Tribute
Carter had angry exchanges with John Paul, but the next President, Reagan shared information with him and worked with him to help bring down Communism in the Eastern bloc. Carter’s a typical liberal. He was more interested in changing Catholic Church teaching than helping all the human beings enslaved under Communism.
