Jimmy Carter, Ex-President and Anti-Catholic Bigot, Attacks Pope John Paul II
http://the-american-catholic.com ^ | June 24, 2013 | Donald R. McClarey

Posted on 06/25/2013 10:14:20 AM PDT by NKP_Vet

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 Church’s “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 Iran’s 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 suggested—“maybe arbitrarily”—that churches should not be required by law to solemnize same-sex unions.

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.

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 was a moron as a president and he proves it everytime he opens his mouth.

Carter said that he classified the Pope as a “fundamentalist,” placing him in that category along with Iran’s 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????

In your dreams, Jimmy. Get crossways with a tough guy like John Paul II, and have your rear end handed to you. In public.

that churches should not be required by law to solemnize same-sex unions.

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.

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"?

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”.

Yes. Slinging words like "fundamentalist" as an epithet around in lieu of making a genuine argument is evidence that Mr. Carter is an anti-Catholic bigot.

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.

Oh I remember when that happen.

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.

Yep. That was in 1983 in Nicaragua. Upon arrival at the airport, the Holy Father severely chastised a local Catholic priest in the receiving line who had been serving also as the “Minister of Culture” under the Marxist Sandinista regime, and espousing liberation theology. “You cannot serve two masters.”

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 Boston’s 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 Kennedy’s 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 JFK’s 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.”

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.

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.

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.
