Another day, another insult to my intelligence.
HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE ARE?
Ploumens work in support of abortion has been monstrous: In protest at President Trumps reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy last year which ended federal funding international organizations that perform or promote abortion, Ploumen set up an NGO called She Decides which sought to continue funding many of those organizations. By July 2017, She Decides had raised $300 million; it now has a war chest of $390 million, most of it going to UN agencies. It is backed by 60 countries, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Her campaigning has also gone beyond abortion to include being a radical supporter of homosexual rights. In 2010, she urged homosexuals to disrupt Mass in a Dutch cathedral after an openly homosexual man was denied Holy Communion. Last September Ploumen was a prominent speaker at the LGBTs Core Group at the United Nations. The Vatican statement made no explicit mention of her political activism in that area.
In 2015, and also in her capacity as a Dutch minister, Ploumen had a private audience with the Pope to discuss climate change. The Dutch government had co-organized a Vatican conference on the issue ahead of the intergovernmental climate change talks in Paris later that year.
Exacty. If it’s not a sign of support, what is it? This woman’s whole career was based on her pro-abortion activity (well, interspersed with some pro-gay activity).
The Pope was at one time a bouncer in an Argentine night club. Looks like he got into one to many scuffles and suffers now from a battered brain.
To put this Pope in the proper perspective, it would be helpful to read Dante’s Inferno.
When I think about this man, Pope Francis, I have to wonder what the Cardinals were thinking in electing him. He’s so antithetical to all I know of Catholic dogma. Something makes me think the Cardinals went all PC and wanted someone from South America, even tho it certainly appears his being from SA is only because his family immigrated there from Italy where all Popes were from for centuries until JPII. I wish he, too, would choose to retire, and soon.
sure. right. okay. yep.
not buying it.
Francis doesn’t have a problem with people who kill babies.
Well, that is enough for me.
This just in... Burning incense to idols is not a sign of apostasy.
