(quote) Jerry-74383 said: I didn't claim he stated he was a conservative fascist, so why would I try to prove such a thing? In fact, I made no claim at all regarding what the Holy Ftaher said or didn't say. Nor did I at any time (prior to this) reference St. Francis.
You are the one who claimed Pope Francis said he was a socialist. You provided no evidence to support your claim. Now you are not only refusing a request to support your claim, but you are asking me to prove an argument I never presented.
Interesting debating tactic...
I GAVE YOU THE EVIDENCE IF YOU BOTHERED TO READ IT. HE SAID IT HIMSELF IN A BBC INTERVIEW AND LATER TO CNN IN A INTERVIEW/DOCUMENTARY ON THE "NEW" CHURCH.
The opposite of a socialist is coservative and the worst conservative is a fascist, Its called sarcasim, to low for even you to get Im sorry.
If the Pope is not a socialist what is he? A democrat, republican? social democrat, national socialist, liberal conservative? Well?????????
You have to divorce Socialism from the extremes of fascism and communism THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. Man is a SOCIAL animal, to share and protect is a basic primative drive hotwired into your amegdula and brain stem.
Greed ie NOT GOOD and it is not EVERY MAN FOR THEMSELVES, even your Bill of Rights acknowledges that, unless you were Indian, black, non caucasion or WASP but otherwise all are equal and your arms are outstretche for the huddled masses
UNLESS you are muslim, latinos from across the desert, or the carribean.
What I am saying to you is the Pope is a Socialist because he orders us all to open wide our arms, hearts and wallets to give the hungary food, the naked clothes, the sick hospital care, the homeless shelter, to defend the weak and standoff the strong from taking it all, to share with those who have nothing.
THATS SOCIALISM. THATS CHRISTIAN TEACHING, THATS WHY THE POPE IS A SOCIALIST. And to the other fellow about being a Jesuit making the Pope a socialist one of the key orders of The Society of Jesus is charity and giving SOCIALISM.
