Incredibly, liberal writers are filling the Internet and other media outlets with writings claiming that the Pope is on their side. One can’t help but wonder where they get that faulty notion. Even though President Obama’s reception for the Pope included some persons that the Pope would not invite to his own receptions back at the Vatican, the liberals are partially confusing what Obama has thrust on the Pope during his first visit to the United States with what the Pope and his religious being staunchly believes and promotes. There are writers claiming that conservatives and members of the GOP are less than happy with the Pope’s message and ‘politics’ during his visit. Really? Where has the Pope sided more with liberals than with conservatives? If one listens to his messages clearly, with an open and honest mind – he is taking both sides of the United States’ political aisle to task. How could anyone see it otherwise?
The Pope has made note of immigration which is obviously a political topic in the United States. However, did he say that persons should be allowed to enter the country illegally and stay? No, he didn’t. That’s the crux of debate between liberals and conservatives. The Pope has spoken for climate control. Good, like many liberals, there are a good number of conservatives who believe it has been appropriately mentioned by the Pope as well. The liberal writers aren’t writing about the Pope’s stance on abortion and other items that wash away the liberals’ claims that the Pope is on ‘their side.’ The Pope has messages that need to be heard by both sides of the political aisle – not just conservatives on the GOP side as liberal writers would have their readers believe. Conservatives admit that the Pope is ‘lecturing’ both sides of the United States’ political aisle while liberals won’t. These messages from the Pope are being recorded and distributed widely. His messages – to both liberals and conservatives – are not going to be erased. The proof will remain. So what is the sense of claiming anything but the truth when the Pope’s messages are recorded forever?
Yes, the Pope has asserted, “Do unto others.” Incredibly, some liberal writers are running with that quote as being liberally-tinged. Obviously, that is not the case. “Do unto others” has been around longer than 2015 liberal views. Much, much, much longer. And it has been embraced by Christian conservatives just as much as it has been embraced by liberals who are Christian. How disgustingly inappropriate for the liberal writers to state otherwise. The truth is that obviously the Pope will not be looking kindly on the divisiveness of which the liberal writers have tried to turn his historic visit. Not at all. Most strikingly, the writers are ignoring the notion that the Pope has not bent on sexual-orientation or abortion issues. So, where is this “we’ve won over the Pope – and he’s really sticking it to the GOP” notion coming from? The articles of many desperate liberal writers who want that to be the case, apparently, are the only place where such a notion is coming from. Again, Pope Francis has a message for everyone – regardless of their political slant. In street terms, he’s giving both the liberals and the conservatives an even-handed butt-whipping. Conservatives clearly see this and admit this. Liberals must be seeing it – but they won’t admit it what is right before their eyes.
From the liberal writings I have read since the Pope set foot on American soil, it is apparent that these liberal writers need to get off their keyboards and listen to everything the Pope is saying. They need to hear more than simply what they want to hear and what they agree with. They need to quit totally tuning him out when the message doesn’t suit their agenda. His words are wise. It’s near-irreverence to read the evidence of how these liberal writers manipulate his words for their own political agenda. They need to give this Pope and his message due respect. The man is brilliant. He can see what they’re doing, too.
