If This Pope Makes You Uncomfortable, You Are Far From Alone…

Because he is making us think of THAT GUY!

1. Pope Rejects Lunch with Boehner, Pelosi, McConnell, Reid: He will be Dining with the Homeless

婉拒與美國參眾議院大老吃飯,因為已經排定要在街頭配遊民吃飯,並親自為他們送食物。

Pope Francis says he didn’t have the time because he already had a date eating with the homeless. In fact, he is not only going to be eating with them, but serving them. The meal will take place at St. Patrick’s Church in Washington, D.C.

As stated by John Carr, director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University: “Pope Francis is the ultimate Washington outsider. His priorities are not Washington’s priorities. We think we are the center of the world. We are not the center of Pope Francis’ world. He is frankly more comfortable in the slums of Argentina than in the corridors of power.”

2. The Pope Calls a Young Girl to Visit Him During His Washington Parade

華盛頓遊行時,一名5歲小女孩突破兩旁路障想接近教宗車隊,被保全圍住。教宗說:讓她到我這裡來。

「讓小孩子到我這裡來,不要禁止他們。」

Initially turned away by secret service agents, the girl, later identified as Sophie Cruz, 5, is called over by Pope Francis, who embraces her. The pope hugged and kissed several children during his tour around the city

痛斥教會:資產不用來濟貧助人,就照企業規矩來繳稅,別當自己是教會!

「凱撒的歸凱撒,上帝的歸上帝。」

“Some religious orders say, ‘No, now that the convent is empty we are going to make a hotel and we can have guests and support ourselves that way, or make money,’” said Pope Francis. “Well, if that is what you do, then pay taxes! A religious school is tax-exempt because it is religious, but if it is functioning as a hotel, then it should pay taxes just like its neighbor. Otherwise it is not fair business.”

The practice of renting space in religious buildings is very common in Europe. The philosophy behind it, that Pope Francis describes, could very well undermine what many televangelists do in the United States. Rather than practicing their religion, these charlatans run lean businesses and make fat profits. If the church isn’t engaged in the business of the Church, as Pope Francis explained, then it’s time for them to pay their fair share of taxes!
