Advice to an Arms Manufacturer
The pope says you’re no Christian? Oh, fudge!
From your business, though, I wouldn’t budge.
Wish his judgment away–
or pretend that you’re gay
so the pope says he’s not one to judge.
Very creative — the way you’ve made your point.
And isn’t it amazing how suddenly every other group of people (particularly in the U.S. right now) can be judged and found guilty of wrong doing and have their rights stripped away in a mini-second — except for gays!
Thanks, Sandra. By the way, in the same speech where the Holy Father condemned arms manufacturers as “hypocrites,” he condemned the Allied Powers in WWII for not bombing the railways to the death camps. But how would they bomb the railways if there were no arms manufacturers? “Uh, gee, I never thought of that….”
It reminds you of the time he said that the West should raise military forces to stop the depredations of the Islamic State. “I didn’t say bomb them. I said stop them….” Presumably the Captains of the West were supposed to link arms in the path of ISIS and sing: “We shall overcome.”
Catholics during our lifetime have been spoiled by having brilliant, principled, and virtuous men in the papacy. We’re now seeing the kind of papacy that was, to some extent, observable in earlier times — associated with great big fashionable social movements that essentially act the way major powers such as France acted in the Middle Ages. Babylonian captivity, here we come!
I think you’re right. And I told Dennis that, at the risk of sounding “super spiritual,” I have to say that I’m seeing the clear description of the “end times” being played out right in front of me in this nation — let alone in the rest of the world.
I’ve been intrigued lately by two different books I’ve heard about that look closely at prophecies made many decades ago concerning this particular pope and his being the one who will lead the Roman church into the evils of the end times right before the return of the Lord. I don’t know enough about those prophecies or the facts relating to them to know if I would agree with any of it or not, but I find it interesting. I have done a good deal of studying of church history in the past, and I never came across any of those prophecies. But this man does seem to be moving solidly in the direction of evil — in my opinion. And it’s especially sad for those people who have lived their whole lives in the Catholic church (many of whom are friends of mine) who genuinely love the Lord and will be forced into choosing between the Lord’s Word and the word of the church before long if things keep going the way they have been.
