Skip to comments.China: Pope Francis’s ‘Good Understanding of Marxists’ a Chance to Solve ‘Catholic Problem’
Posted on 08/06/2018 6:17:56 PM PDT by marshmallow
Chinas state newspaper Global Times published a feature Wednesday heralding in a new era in relations between Beijing and the Vatican, suggesting that Pope Francis, as a Jesuit who believes he has a good understanding of Marxists, presents a golden opportunity for China to coopt Catholicism in the country.
China and the Vatican have been at odds for decades. An official split occurred in 1958, when the Vatican rejected the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Church as illegitimate, as it refused to take orders from the pope. Currently, Patriotic Catholicism is one of five legal religions in China, alongside the Three-Self Patriotic Church (Protestantism), Taoism, Islam, and Buddhism.
The Global Times noted that the government of Communist Party leader Xi Jinping had become increasingly comfortable with broadcasting television and film that included Catholic themes, including a documentary on the life of Pope Francis, particularly after reports surfaced in January that the Vatican would consider accepting the legitimacy of Communist-nominated patriotic priests.
In a change from the past, topics related to Catholicism have appeared frequently on Chinas mainstream media platforms in recent months, which experts say is a good sign for China-Vatican relations, the Times reported, adding, Experts say Pope Franciss Jesuit background and Latin American origins also played roles in his commitment to improve relations with China.
One of those experts, a scholar identified as Yang Fenggang, told the Global Times that Pope Franciscoming from Latin America, the cradle of Marxist-inspired liberation theologyhad friendlier sensibilities towards communist China than his predecessors.

Not only has he a good understanding of Marxism, he’s one of its best practioners.
LOL! It actually sounds like the Chinese are expecting the Pope to help liquidate them.
The Roman Church has fallen a long way from John Paul II.
They expect the ImPopester to get the Chinese Catholics in line for them.
I blame the Catholic Church as well as the majority of Christian Churches in America on their silence concerning the Marxist assault on the American system. In fact, their negligence in fighting their inception when they were most vulnerable, is unforgivable and their disgrace.
The Pope’s name in Chinese translates as “The Red (Hung) Pope”
“I blame the Catholic Church as well as the majority of Christian Churches in America on their silence concerning the Marxist assault on the American system.”
Why? The Bolshevic’s birthed the Zionists, I assume it is fairly common knowledge. The DPLC (i.e. aka the SPLC) has been touting this fact for several decades.
BTW - WNIS Morning show deserves a listen in the art of dialectical materialism, the morning show host is an absolute master, though delf taught.
On February 8, 1920, Winston Churchill expressed his alarm over world developments in an interview published in the Sunday Illustrated Herald, London:
“From the days of Adam (Spartacus) Weishaupt, to those of Karl Marx to those of Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxemburg and Emma Goldman. This worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstruction of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.
There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international, and for the most part, atheistic Jews. It is certainly a very great one: it probably outweighs all others.”
Where was the Catholic Church when Bolshevism emerged out of the slime of “envious malevolence?” Where were the other churches? And where are they now as the Marxist Antifa is cracking heads and destroying property? Crickets . . .
Yeah all those Catholics in tsarist Russia really dropped the ball.
