One Peter Five brings us the latest dropping from our Red Pope:
In yet another interview with Eugenio Scalfari (see our standard rebuttal to “you can’t trust Scalfari!” here), this exchange was reported to have taken place:
You told me some time ago that the precept, “Love your neighbour as thyself” had to change, given the dark times that we are going through, and become “more than thyself.” So you yearn for a society where equality dominates. This, as you know, is the programme of Marxist socialism and then of communism. Are you therefore thinking of a Marxist type of society?
“It it has been said many times and my response has always been that, if anything, it is the communists who think like Christians. Christ spoke of a society where the poor, the weak and the marginalized have the right to decide. Not demagogues, not Barabbas, but the people, the poor, whether they have faith in a transcendent God or not. It is they who must help to achieve equality and freedom”. [emphasis added]
One of the most hotly contested criticism of Pope Francis is that he is ideologically aligned with Marxists. We’ve covered some of the connections before, so I won’t rehash them here. What seems fair to say is that this is the most direct admission yet that Francis identifies his program of social justice as something compatible with Communism – itself an intrinsic evil.
Go here to read the rest. People who cannot see the evil of Communists are moral imbeciles. Fascist apologists are consigned to the ideological fever swamps of western societies. There is absolutely no moral difference between Fascists and Communists. That Pope Francis has a soft spot in his head for Communists indicates that he is, at best, a deeply confused man. That he is the leader of the Catholic Church is a disaster of epic proportions. That almost all the Cardinals, and the Pope Emeritus, do nothing and say nothing while this farce continues, is an indication that they are simply ecclesiastical careerists and nothing more.
