Obama Says Pope Francis Is Not Concerned About the Religious Freedom of Catholics Under His Edicts
The Tenth Crusade ^ | March 27, 2014 | TTC

According to Barack, the Pope did not express any concern about the murder, mayhem or religious freedom under his regime.

The Pope simply was looking to find common ground with him.

It must have been an exhaustive search.

The good news is, the Vatican was very proactive about reporting Obama was taken to the shed regarding his offenses against religious freedom.

This is an excellent step in the right direction.

That being said, Pope Francis once again said nothing.

He distanced himself, giving the world the appearance everyone speaking about the murder and mayhem is an enemy of the mission of the Church, modeled of course by Pope Francis himself.

With silence, Pope Francis is able to give the appearance that Cardinal Parolin was not speaking for and on behalf of the Catholic Church or Pope Francis, giving Obama control of the efficacy of the threat to salvation of millions of Catholics.

“ And I explained to him that most religious organizations are entirely exempt. Religiously affiliated hospitals or universities or NGOs simply have to attest that they have a religious objection, in which case they are not required to provide contraception although that employees of theirs who choose are able to obtain it through the insurance company,” the president haltingly continued.

“And I pledged to continue to dialogue with the U.S. Conference of Bishops to make sure that we can strike the right balance, making sure that not only everybody has healthcare but families, and women in particular, are able to enjoy the kind of healthcare coverage that the ACA offers, but that religious freedom is still observed.”

That's right nice of him.

But religious freedom belongs to every Catholic who owns a business.

Obamacare has only protected the Bishops. The Obama administration was relying on the Bishops to take the deal and run, protecting their own salvation and leaving the rest of us to forfeit salvation for food and shelter.

When is Pope Francis going to put his own face and name on Church teaching?

John Kerry expressed how delighted he is with the destruction of 2000 years of teaching faithfulness to doctrine as the basis for salvation: I'm “a great admirer of everything you’ve been doing, as a Catholic, for the church.”

Obama also expressed his admiration.

These exchanges of mutual admiration warm the cockles of the heart of Catholics and Christians undergoing persecution. We are so happy that Pope Francis found a place where he could make peace with his own silence. Getting downright giddy.

I must apologize for being a skunk at the lawn party, but handing Evangelii Gaudium as the message the Pope wished to convey, is a bit like handing Kim Jong Un a treatise on the charity of communism.

The man should have been handed Evangelium Vitae, Humanae Vitae, Theology of the Body and an autographed copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Instead, he was handed his license to proceed with the destruction of America.

Obama also said that we could keep our insurance plan if we liked it.

Obama also said we could keep the doctors we knew and trusted.

After those two comments, you are going to believe what bh0 says the Pope said?

I doubt Obama can manage the philosophies of the Dick and Jane books much less the thousand year old Catholic texts.

From the video coverage, Mr Obama and his sidekick Mr Kerry acted like fish out of water during the audience with the Pope. Very clumsy, very unsure of themselves. And with past displays of Mr Obama’s and Mr Kerry’s honesty, why would I believe that they didn’t lie about what the Pope had to say to them?

That's the big question. What did the Pope actually say versus what his Cardinal said to Obama? Do you have additional info to what was actually discussed at the meeting between Francis and Hussein?

Nope. I don’t think the Pope even brought it up. I think he left the “Catholic work” up to Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Cardinal Parolin. If you hear otherwise, please let me know.

Don't put any stock into that being indicative of a tongue-lashing. Obama and Kerry were both born clumsy.

And "Kerry had simply wounded himself with an M-79 grenade round he fired too close. He wanted a Purple Heart, and I refused.” http://www.militarycorruption.com/kerry4.htm

So not only has he used the pontiff for votes, he’s using him to tell more lies.

“According to Barack, the Pope did not express any concern about the murder, mayhem or religious freedom under his regime. “

So far, there has been only ONE world leader speaking out about the persecutions, murders and actual crucifixions now going on again Christians - not a peep from the O-Office.

Wow. Take on the Pope, Obama. You are truly the precursor to the AntiChrist.

Sadly, Ebbtide, I’m afraid you are most likely correct in your supposition of what the pope had to say in that meeting. I do hope we are both wrong on that, as to believe, as you are suggesting, that the pope did not have the spiritual courage to defend our faith as he sat before this mendacious disgrace for our president, is truly frightening.
