Pope Francis, whose criticisms of unbridled capitalism have prompted some to label him a Marxist, said in an interview published on Sunday that communists had stolen the flag of Christianity.

Is the Pope telling Putin to come out of the closet?
This is what diversity can get for you.
Shouldn’t everyone rejoice that there is a retarded Pope?
Except in Russia, where the Christians are closet communists.
FRANCIS, THE JESUITS AND THE GOOD MARXISTS
Pope Francis is more open to the followers of proscribed Marxist liberation theology than to orthodox traditional Catholics.

Socialist societies are very ethical, clean, physically and morally. If it werent for his materialist doctrine it could be argued that they carried out the ethical teaching of the social doctrine of the Church. Leonardo Boff on his return from a trip to Moscow, cfr.ABC, 16-VII-87, p.45...
Marxist theologian, Leonardo Boff was elated at the election of Pope Francis... It seems that Pope Francis share with the Liberation Theologians the same high regard for Communist values.
Marxism provides a scientific understanding of the mechanisms of oppression in the world, at local and national levels; It offers the vision of a new world which must be built as a socialist society, the first step to a classless society, where genuine brotherhood can be hopefully possible, and by which deserves sacrifice everything. Declaration of the theological Association of India in the magazine Vidyajyoti, of the Theological Faculty of the Jesuits in Delhi, April, 1986.
Pope Francis has persecuted traditional Catholics that follow the Tridentine Mass, but it seems to maintain close ties with the leaders of the Marxist liberation theology, a movement condemned by Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Pope Francis has affirmed that he has met many Marxists in his life who are good people, so he doesnt feel offended when hes questioned about his Marxist proclivities. I wonder how Pope Francis remarks would have been received if he were referring to the many good people he has met who were Nazis? After all, many more Christians have been murdered and persecuted by the good Marxists than by the good Nazis.
It is very worrisome that it is the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Muller, he himself a follower of the liberation theology, who confirms that Pope Francis has close ties with the liberation theology, something that is in clear defiance to the Magisterium of the Church.
Considering he is a one lung wonder ..
Strange he made it this far..
Or is it?
This is a major error in the catholic church.
Salvation in Jesus Christ is the center of the gospel. Whether rich or poor, all classes need to be told the way to eternal life.
The social justice/liberation theologians have fooled many into thinking that poverty issues (money) are the Bible's main message.
The pope is saying charity, Christian charity, was adopted by Marxists turned athiest and corrupted. Charity is still Christian even if marxists pervert it.
Huh? Communism has killed over 100 million people. Christian?
This guy’s nuts
Thank you! People really need to lighten up at the Pope’s comments. If you put them in context, nothing has really changed in the teachings of the Church.
What is this, Pope Rope-a-Dope?
Communists are godless atheists, or Democrats, but I repeat myself.
The pope is obviously a fool.
Communists are ATHEIST by definition.
The Pope needs to take a vacation or something. A sabbatical or whatever.
He is no threat to the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church. No Pope can be.
But he’s just plain stupid.
Well, this here Catholic never heard that “poverty is at the center of the Gospel.” But of course, I’m your basic pre Vatican 2 type.
Would the Pope care to comment on the slaughter and destruction of Christianity in Mosul?
And Russians have never been known for grace and charity.
I’m confused if this Pope is either terminally incomprehensible or if he’s being translated badly! Since Day 1 his quotes make no sense in English.
