August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) One of the authors of a widely-criticized essay that accused conservative Catholics and Evangelicals in the U.S. of instigating an ecumenism of hate is doubling down on his claims.
Speaking with The Tablet earlier this week, Marcelo Figueroa said he was happy to see the necessary debate that resulted from an article he and papal confidant Fr. Antonio Spadaro S.J. published July 13 in La Civiltà Cattolica, a Jesuit-run journal overseen by the Vatican.
In their essay, Figueroa and Spadaro decried what they called the problematic fusion between faith and politics found in America.
They also accused former Trump adviser Steve Bannon of supporting apocalyptic geopolitics and railed against xenophobic voters for engaging in a fear-driven holy war motivated by a nostalgic dream of a theocratic type of state.
Both Figueroa, a Presbyterian pastor, and Spadaro, editor in chief of La Civiltà Cattolica, are close personal friends of the Pope.
The hyperbolic article sent shockwaves throughout the Christian community in the United States, which has been fighting secularism and the culture of death for decades. Persons from multiple denominations rejected the essays characterizations. Reverend Johnnie Moore, an Evangelical adviser to President Trump, sent a letter to Rome asking for a meeting with the Pope in order to clarify any misunderstandings.

I’ve pretty much had it with the current cathilic cabal.
Because it’s Hate when you resist the attempts of the Spanish Main to take over your country by immivasion.
So does Francis believe in predestination?
Maybe he should get back to molesting alter boys.
It is guys like this that really explain why Luther broke away from the corrupt church of 500 years ago.
I would love to dump this 'bunch' again...
BTW you RCC Apologists, don't bother trying to chastise or convert me. Thanks.
Was getting confused. Thought it was a Paypal advisor.
If Paul were alive today I would cringe to see what he would pen in II Romans.
I’m a non-Catholic Trump supporter - does that mean I get a pass - what stupidity......
“explain[s] why Luther broke away...” My view: Pope Francis shares Luther’s conclusions that the Church has too much real estate and should be liquidated by smart people, such as Francis and Luther. Fact: Francis is a high school and Luther is a red light district. The Church survives all storms.
The Jesuits are a headache for everyone.
If Nazis and KKK are Trump’s base, how did he win the election?
Just as much insanity in the ranks of the religious as in those w/o religion - who knows, maybe even more.
Lots of rhetoric.
I read someplace Bannon is Catholic..
Nope. Guys like this and Luther are of the same kind.
Neither one of them is Catholic.
GLAD TO SEE HE TOOK TIME OFF FROM THE HOMOSEXUAL DRUG ORGIES AT THE VATICAN TO OPEN HIS FAT YAP...
He's 3x married and 3x divorced, don't know if he has any specificaly religious practice at all these days.
He does identify strongly, civilizationally, with Judeo-Christian West.
I just hates it, I does.
Especially when carried out by those Cabrones from the Caribbean (Link and Learn).
