Pope: I’m Not A Communist – Honest!

Pope: I’m Not A Communist – Honest!


The above video dates from 2015.  Questions were being raised even back then… and – in fact – from the day of Pope Francis’s election in 2013.  His “leftish” leaning was obvious from the get-go.  So, while he skirts, so to speak, the question about the papal red shoes, he cannot, quite so easily, conceal his modernism.  There are plenty of modernists reciting (without conscience) the Creed, some on a daily basis, so that particular reassurance is a bit like promising to take out a home insurance policy the day after you’ve been burgled. 

Anyway,  Pope Francis seems [albeit a tad weakly]  to deny the charge of “leftism”/Communism…

Are you convinced?

    This clip raises the question, does Francis really not know or understand that he is wreaking havoc in the Church? He claims he is following the Church; he claims he is following Church doctrine. BALONEY. Or, as they say in Italy, BOLOGNA. He knows full well, and he is proud of the fact, that as he himself put it, he is “making a mess.”

    He must fancy himself the Vicar of some other church, where his lying twists and turns are the palaver du jour.

    I wouldn’t put any more trust in his denial than I would in Bill Clinton’s infamous statement regarding his scandalous behavior with Monica Lewinsky: “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

    Or, Franklin Delano Roosevelt campaigning on a promise, in 1940, to keep America out of the European war.

    Or, Woodrow Wilson campaigning, in 1916, to keep America out of war.

    Or, in the Warren Commission Report that claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald shot President Kennedy.

    Or, in Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi claiming to be devout Catholics.

    Or, in the claim that the 2020 election wasn’t stolen for Biden.

    Or, in Biden’s claim that Antifa is “just an idea.”

    Communists are very good at lying and concealing their true intent. Perhaps Francis was good at it early in his pontificate, but by now he has proven to be an abysmal failure. To borrow the title of a famous book, he is “The Naked Communist.”

      RCA Victor,

      I was disappointed when I reached the end of your list – it was truly poetry in motion…

      Or, in this promise.

      Or, in that promise.

      Or, in RCA Victor’s promise to never again tell a soul that there was a time when I did not know the population of Glasgow…

      I take comfort in the knowledge that there are some things that, even to me, are very obvious…

        As long as you’ve been to Confession about that former gap in your knowledge, I’d say…

        What gap?

        RCA Victor,

        And to prove my determination to put right that gap, this, from the top of my head…

        Glasgow has a population density of 3,400 people per square kilometer, which makes it the most densely populated city in Scotland. The larger Greater Glasgow area has an estimated population of 1.2 million, while the region surrounding the conurbation has about 2.8 million residents. This represents about 42% of the population of Scotland.

        Let me just say this about that: if I ever return to Scotland, I will have to think of another question to stump the top of your head.

      Not to mention his not infrequent rebukes to Catholics given to support for the Traditional liturgy and Faith. Talk about the Church as a “museum” brings to mind the way Communist regimes do exactly that – place churches effectively into the category of museums and ban worshipping in them.

        Not Surprisingly he has Kept CLOSED Catholic Churches In Malta ,Italy and the Uk. Nor any word from Him on the repression of the Faithful in Red China. Now it really is Illegal or anyone under age 18 to Attend Any religious services there . Obviously that means the forced ban of first 3 sacraments of Infant Baptism a Childs First Communion and Youth Confirmation……. Numskull Bergoglio is either the most Imbecile of a Pontiff or a Fellow Traveler RED like he is a Homosexual enabler to the Obscene jokes of Clergy like McCarrick , Wuerl and Gregory alleged Bishops in Dc and the USA.. Oh My God.!!!!

        Yes, his failure to support the persecuted Catholic Church in China is a monumental scandal, for which he will one day be held accountable.

    Due to his well-documented controlling and manipulative behaviour, his frequently contradictory and irrational speech and behaviour (i.e. saying/doing one thing to one person, and the complete opposite to another); his tantrums, also his desire to surround himself with compromised men (often homosexuals) which he can manipulate all the more easily; his apparent inability to accept or answer legitimate criticism of his papacy, I suspect he has sociopathic tendencies and is a narcissist. Many of the traits associated with these conditions could be confused with socialism / communism as they have so much in common – i.e. they place man (or self) at the centre of everything.

      Papa Francis has also adopted the slogan “build back better” at the heart of The Great [Communist] Reset. I haven’t visited One Peter Five for a while, and I haven’t yet read the following article right through, but looks interesting…

    Yes, there have been instances of support for Communism, i.e. this fiasco:- https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jul/13/pope-francis-communist-crucifix-gift-bolivia when he said he wasn’t offended by a Communist hammer and sickle crucifix after it was presented to him, when, as the Vicar of Christ, he should have been gravely offended and should have refused to accept it. But I suspect this is part and parcel of his narcissistic desire to be all things to all men, only saving his wrath for those who refuse to kow-tow to his errors and abuse of authority (i.e. traditional Catholics). I read that he said the other day that “Those who reject the teaching of the Second Vatican Council are placing themselves outside the Church”. And those who embrace Communism?

      , WF,

      I don’t see how someone who rejects Vatican II, when it is a merely pastoral council can be excommunicated but “gays” who reject the moral law are not to be judged! What a confusing pope to have when the world has gone haywire and we need clarity.

        Lily and Josephine,

        That’s a perfect example of Goebbel’s old dictum, “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes true.”

        The lie, in this case, is that there are “teachings of Vatican II,” when in fact there were none other than those that were repeated from the Magisterium.

        More proof that the whole Conciliar superstructure is built on lies. It would be like covering up the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with a drop ceiling and built-in fluorescent lights, and then proclaiming it great art. No, not just great art, but even greater art than that which it hides!

        Speaking of lies, isn’t that the modus operandi of this pontificate?

        RCA Victor,

        That is exactly right. V2 was not about “teachings” but about letting fresh air in through the open window – well, what came in was a hurricane and we’re still picking up the pieces.

        Read Christopher Ferrara’s masterly book on Vatican II and how Catholics should treat it:- “The Great Facade: The Regime of Novelty in the Catholic Church from Vatican II to the Francis Revolution (Second Edition). It can be purchased here and it’s well worth a read:- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-Facade-Novelty-Catholic-Revolution/dp/1621381498

      Westminster Fly,

      I agree with Lily – how can you be excommunicated for not accepting Vatican II ? Pope John XXIII made a point of saying that the Council would not be stating any new dogma, so how can anyone be excommunicated if they don’t deny dogma? The only exception, as far as I know, is abortion. A woman who has an abortion is automatically excommunicated.

      I found this article at The Tablet and you are right, he does say that. He also says this:

      But in his speech on 30 January, the Pope said the council “must not be negotiated” and that on this point “we must be demanding, strict”.

    Westminsterfly’s comment about sociopaths made me curious, so here is a list of the consistent behavior patterns of sociopaths, from WebMD:

    Lack of empathy for others
    Impulsive behavior
    Attempting to control others with threats or aggression
    Using intelligence, charm, or charisma to manipulate others
    Not learning from mistakes or punishment
    Lying for personal gain
    Showing a tendency to physical violence and fights
    Generally superficial relationships
    Sometimes, stealing or committing other crimes
    Threatening suicide to manipulate without intention to act
    Sometimes, abusing drugs or alcohol
    Trouble with responsibilities such as a job, paying bills, etc.

    However, WebMD lumps sociopaths in with psychopaths and calls them facets of “antisocial personality disorder.” More on comparing the two:

    “A key difference between a psychopath and a sociopath is whether he has a conscience. A psychopath doesn’t have a conscience. If he lies to you so he can steal your money, he won’t feel any moral qualms, though he may pretend to.”

    SUMMARY: I’m not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, but in my considered and carefully weighed opinion, Pope Francis is afflicted with

      Victor we live in an age where everything is Labelled as in Psychopaths Etc Etc . One line from a Film resonates with me and its this ” Its amazing what Man can achieve when He Abandons Basic Human Dignity “.The man in the Video ( as far as am concerned) broke the line of Popes when he refused the Martyrs Red Shoes .That’s the only really true bit of Honesty that I can say in my Heart that I have seen from Francis .All of the rest has really been an abandonment of any trace of the Dignity of The Catholic Faith he may have had . He is now on more of a role than before ( if that’s at all possible ) to wreck further havoc . On a more usual Non Catholic Statement he has Announced a Grandparents Day .Whatever that has to do with Catholicism I know not . Maybe someone here can Enlighten me . The Mans a Legend and a Marxist through and through .At least he knows the words of The Apostles Creed . He wasn’t asked if he believed it . Thanks again for your Prayers for Me

        Faith of our Fathers is a funny username for a man who thinks Christ has broken his promise to be with his Church until the end of time.

        That can’t be the case if the line of popes has been broken by Pope Francis. I’m really surprised at you.

        Lily I know and I believe that Our Lord Jesus Christ will be with us until the End of Time .I do not believe in the empty chair, but I certainly do not believe that this Man is a Leader of Our Catholic Church .And yes it was HE not ME who broke with 2000 years of Tradition by not accepting the Martyrs Red Shoes .Right off HE symbolised to us that in no way was HE either going to Die for The Catholic Faith or more importantly Live and suffer for the Catholic Faith .We have had bad Popes before but ( correct me if am wrong ) we never have had a Communist .Al give him a break and I just believe hes a Marxist through and through I doubt very much if Francis has ever been a Catholic .Remember this is a Man who witnessed a Eucharistic Miracle first hand yet does not believe .As for my Nic that along with my Catholic Faith will remain unchanged ,as will my respect for Francis which is Nil .

        Of all the things to bring you to the “Francis brink” you choose a pair of shoes! You have gotta be kidding me, as RCA Victor would say, as he tries to mimic my American accent 😀

        The red shoes/sign of being willing to die for the Faith – correct. But that doesn’t make them a matter of dogma. In fact, the red shoes are merely symbolic.

        That doesn’t mean they are unimportant, but they’re not of sufficient gravity to have us question the validity of the Francis election, or a sign that he’s a Communist Indeed, red being the key Communist colour, it could suggest the very opposite! You have to laugh.

        Think of it this way; Francis’s immediate predecessors – Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI all wore the red shoes. Religiously. Yet, they were all, to a greater or lesser extent, modernists. They actually prepared the way for this “outright modernist” – to quote Bishop Fellay commenting on the then newish pontiff, Francis.

        So, don’t get too hung up on the red shoes. Remember, Pope Benedict was criticised for wearing them and his critics pointed to them, so to speak, as evidence that he lived a life of luxury (and more, besides, but don’t let’s go there, as they say these days.)

        I agree that it would be desirable for Pope Francis to wear the red shoes, symbol of his readiness to give his life for the Faith, if need be, but it’s really a matter of secondary importance.

        Me, I’d settle for him publicly recanting all the errors that he has perpetuated, including the public ceremony involving a pagan “goddess” in the very heart of the Vatican. Do that, Papa Francis, I would say, and wear blue shoes with yellow dots, for all I care 😀

        I don’t mean to trivialise the matter, FOOF, or to write anything that might annoy you – not least, because red is my favourite colour – but I just don’t like to think of you worrying your socks off (in a sense) about the colour of the Pope’s shoes when, in fact, his main worry is the colour of his soul and I do mean “soul” not “sole”.

        You have to laugh… don’t you? Like this 😀

        Are you mad at me, now?

      • Faith of Our Fathers

        Its well seen you are a Teacher .You know me well enough to know that because the shoes ( or lack of them ) were mentioned on his first night on St Peters Balcony I and many others including yourself I suppose ,knew as Catholics we were going to have it rough with this Man .But never at that time did I even imagine that he wasn’t a Catholic .Now one can debate from now until the next lockdown about Pope Francis .But me being a bit of a Rough Diamond will make it clear what I think of him .One Cannot Ride Two Horses With The One Backside .He himself must have known how important the significance of IE the Red Shoes and his seemingly always it seems reluctance to have The Fishermans Ring Kissed . He even drew his hand away when Cardinal Pell a true sufferer of The Catholic Faith bent down to Kiss it . If Francis does not know or should I say care about Tradition ( as it seems he most definitely does not ) of 2000 Years then he should resign .Of course we know that He should never have been offered the Papacy in the First Place .And BTW I agree with everything you have said, except your jokes . Also how could anyone be Mad at you . You Take Care .

        If you consider Francis’ agenda and his surrender to the globalists, then you might say that instead of the red shoes, he is wearing earth shoes…

    Of course he is not a Communist, that would be to easy. The Communist kill the body but can’t kill the soul. During the Spanish Civil War, in just 2 months (July, August 1936) Communists murdered almost 7.000 priests and burned down 20.000 churches, chapels and convents. And what happened to the faith? Nothing. After Franco’s victory the faith grew again stronger than ever, because violence are death are useless is you have the Mass and Church teachings. And since 1965, without firing a single shot, all of that has been destroyd from within by people like Bergoglio. He is worst than a Commnist, he hates Christ in the Eucharist and uses the Church to imposse his hateful ideology. That should be fought to dead. Is the Modernists the ones who kill the soul, Communists are just their students.

      I’d forgotten that – you told us that last time the subject / his name came up.

      However, since this is his subject – science – and since he wasn’t told that the sample tissue for testing was, in fact, a consecrated Host, is this not different?

      I’d be interested, though, to read (or view) any occasion when he made that claim about Sr Lucia, if you have it to hand.
