Is the Pope Pro-Life?

pope in israelThat used to be as redundant as asking if the Pope was Catholic. Unfortunately, over the past 40 years since the Vatican II Revolution, many faithful Catholics have been asking themselves precisely those two questions. Of course, being Catholic and being pro-life used to be redundant. At the risk of enraging those Catholics who think the Pope can do no wrong, the Holy Father’s actions (or lack thereof) with regard to Notre Dame and Gaza leave many wondering just how pro-life Pope Benedict XVI really is.

It’s bad enough that His Holiness just gave a papal imprimatur to Israeli war criminals flush from dropping white phosphorus on Palestinian children; but the silence coming from Rome over the controversy at Notre Dame is truly deafening. I’m sorry papalolotors, but the buck stops at the top. The president of the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame means “Our Lady”) serves at the Pope’s pleasure, as do all the bishops around the world. One stroke of the pen and they’re removed from their posts and off to a monastery. So the fact that Father John Jenkins is gloatingly snubbing his nose at Rome and pro-lifers across the country by inviting the King of Abortion, President Barack Obama, to Notre Dame must meet with the Pope’s tacit approval. The Pope has near absolute power in the Church. So if he doesn’t use it, it must be because he doesn’t want to. If there’s another way of looking at it, please enlighten me.

When even the liberal Washington Post and Time Magazine criticize the Pope for his contradictory behavior in allowing pro-abortion policiticans to receive communion, you know we’ve got a problem. He did the same thing last year when he came to the United States and allowed pro-abortion “Catholic” politicans to receive communion at his papal Masses. I’m sure we all remember that great photo-op he gave the hideous Nancy Pelosi when she was snapped kissing his ring, as he beamed at her. She recently had a private audience with the Pope (no photos allowed – at least he learned that lesson), and lo and behold, she remains un-excommunicated. Then His Holiness failed to mention abortion in his speech to the United Nations (that purveyer of third world abortion) which even John Paul II did not fail to do. I never thought I’d find myself longing for the days of John Paul II, who despite his hostility to Tradition, was at least staunchly and vociferously pro-life.

Of course, those same liberal rags mentioned above, along with the rest of the anti-Catholic media, just had a field day picking apart the Pope’s words and actions in Israel. He apparently didn’t bow low enough before his Zionist masters. He used the word “killed” instead of “murdered.” And worst of all, the Pope didn’t impute collective blame to the German people as a whole or on the Catholic Church for the Holocaust. And last but not least, we were reminded ad nauseum that he was in the dreaded “Hitler Youth” as a child. [It’s interesting that Jews (rightly) reject collective blame for the Crucifixion, yet every German man, woman, and child, even those born after World War II, is somehow collectively responsible for the Holocaust.] That old photo of the young Joseph Ratzinger in his Hilter Youth uniform was dusted off and rubbed in all our faces over the past week; but to me, that photo just makes them look weak and vindictive. The Pope looked like he was about 8 years old in that photo, and the expression on his face shows that he wasn’t exactly thrilled. But anyway, how many of these liberal hacks (or their parents) were card-carrying Commies whose first pair of diapers were red? Did I mention that Communists were responsible for the Holocaust of tens of millions of Christians in the Soviet Union? Ah, but some Holocausts are more equal than others. Hypocritically, the Holocaust of unborn babies isn’t a crime to them.

What a kick in the teeth Pope Benedict’s silence is to the many pro-lifers who are right now being arrested at Notre Dame and will now have criminal records. Including an 80 year old priest who was arrested, roughed up, and dragged away by police like a sack of potatoes. They walk the walk, while the Pope talks the talk. Actually, he barely even does that. I’m sure my fellow Catholics want to crucify me right now for daring to criticize the Pope, but ask yourselves: am I lying? You know I’m not. St. Paul loved the Pope (St. Peter) and the Truth enough to admonish him for the sake of souls. I love the Pope enough to demand that he protect his flock. Who really cares more about the Pope: Those who insist that he do his job and punish those who promote what the Church considers an instrinic evil? Or those who enable him to shirk his responsibility? The Holy Father will be judged more harshly than any of the rest of us when he meets his maker. To whom more is given, more is expected. And as it stands now, he’ll have a lot to answer for in terms of sins of omission.

gaza25While in Israel the Pope dutifully mentioned the Shoah at every turn, and lamented Jewish suffering under Hitler’s regime. Fine. It is a valid point. Jews were singled out and died in massive numbers and that was a crime against humanity. Regardless of the controversy over how many Jews actually died during World War II, there is no doubt that the insanity of Hitler’s pagan (not Catholic) ideology of racial supremacism really was an atrocity and no decent person denies that. Granted. But what about the Shoah the Israelis have been perpetrating against the Palestinians for the past 60 years? How does the fact that they were victims of the Nazis justify them turning Nazi on the Palestinians? Does the Pope not notice this double standard? It’s not enough that the Pope visited a Palestinian refugee camp and stated that they deserved their own homeland, if he doesn’t mention how they came to be refuguees in the first place. They had their own homeland. It was called Palestine. It’s now called Israel. How did that come to be? The fact that the Pope also failed to mention the recent Israeli excursion into Gaza which killed at least 1,400 civilians, mostly women and children, does make one question his pro-life bona fides. What would Jesus say?

gaza45If the Pope really is pro-life, and I’m sure in his heart of hearts he is, it’s time for him to speak out unequivocally. It’s time for him to use his unlimited power to restore order in the Church, and he can begin by sacking Father Jenkins. If it costs him his life for speaking out against abortion and Israeli atrocities, then so be it. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for his sheep. But so far, he’s been allowing his most vulnerable sheep to be slaughtered, and giving a free pass to their butchers. That doesn’t bode well for him on Judgment Day. In fact, taking a bullet for his sheep may be the only way he earns a ticket to heaven if he continues at this rate. 

I love the Holy Father. I appreciate his gestures toward Tradition, and I believe that he means well and loves his Church.

But I’m sorry, that’s just not good enough. The souls of aborted babies and incinerated Palestinian children cry out to heaven for justice. And they will be heard.

  1. A German Pope is a godsend to the Zionists. HH is very vulnerable to accusation of being anti-Semite by non-Semitic thugs pretending to be Semites! Also, it is unfortunate that the Pope was used to validate an imposed narrative called the ‘shoah'; an instrument used by the Zionists to gain sympathy for their usurpation of Palestine.

  2. Amen!

  3. He did mention his hopes for a Palestinian state. Let’s see how 60 years of apartheid tries to shove that messy fact under the table.

  4. Any true Catholic should be asking the same question.

    “And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven”.

    With power like this, one would think the Pope, of all people, would put it to use and stop pandering to the whims of the world. Some might say that the Pope was being diplomatic, or the pope has to be diplomatic. I would agree in certain circumstances diplomacy is the best way forward. However, when it comes to matters of the soul and the truth the Pope has the authority from God to speak out. In fact, it is his duty to speak out and warn his flock even at the expense of losing popularity with the rest of the world. It seems to me that truth has been forced to take a backseat to “Political correctness”.

  5. Benedict is an anti-pope in the synagogue of satan(the vatican) The Roman Church is apostized and that is why there are so many abortions in the world to-day!!! Also lucifer has been in charge for a very long time, we have been praying to the wrong god.

  6. I am not sure if the great Pope is an apostate, or the apostate from Judaism, since Catholicism is quite near in rites and spirit to Judaism, I think there is no big difference between pan Voityla the Holy Pretender, and Herr Ratzinger the crawling-groveling-pardoning Papst: both are slavish, dependent, not sincere, biased public unable to see reality, morover bowing down before the Evil incarnate- Zion ben-Shaitan… Can such public be trusted as an authority ? Or even respected, if they are accomplices to terrorists, extremists, fascists and war criminals ?
    Remember what the emperor Friedrich II said 800 years ago: “Mortal war against Rome/Vatican, peace and friendship with Islam”. Fine advice, gentlemen!

  7. I am not a Catholic, I am a follower of Christ. No man on earth should ever be called Father, there is but one Father, and He is in Heaven. To all good folk who pray to Jesus, ask continually for guidance from god our Father. Narrow is the way which leads to eternal life, and it is not found by ignoring wicked folk as they blow apart little children, when this one man (The pope) can and ought to rebuke and remonstrate with these wicked folk, who call themselves Jews, but what are they really? I pray for clear sight for all of us who are concerned about liars with so much power, who are filled with venom and lack any compassion whatsover.

  8. after all is said and done the Pope is only a man…God Alone is Holy.

  9. Is the Pope Catholic? Go here and read this, http://www.huttongibson.com/missionary-effort-why-are-you-not-catholic.php

  10. The Pope is only a man that is weak in Christ. Look at him when you see him. Weakness is shown in his face and actions. Why should the Catholics or any other Christian expect him to uphold the teachings of Christ, Apostles and the Church. As long as he can get big offerings and any political favor from Biden and Polosi, and other baby murderes so-called Catholics, he is not concerned about how much they favor abortions. Yes, if he does not repent and speak out against the abortions and other lies that he upholds, the Pope will be one of the first to be cast in Hell the Lake of Fire and Brimstone.
