SAINTS BARRY AND BERNIE: Why Do Obama & Sanders Love The Pope So Much?

Written by Noreen O'Brien on September 28, 2015

Recently Hillary Clinton was interviewed by Lena Dunham, I guess bathtub, Fruit Loop girl was too busy. Of course the interview was nothing more than a fluff piece designed to make Hillary more appealing to 20 somethings; oh, and abusive lesbians.

I’m sure Lena never thought to ask why she, Hillary, doesn’t think it’s strange she’s not being investigated for receiving detailed accounts of Libyan military movements in her private email account. Or why Clinton’s aides are being investigated for mishandling national security information and not Clinton herself. Or more importantly why, when Clinton read the emails and realized the situation in Libya was deteriorating, didn’t she send help? You know, stuff the real media should be asking.

No, instead we learn that Bill asked Hillary to marry him three times before she relented; I nearly gagged.

And speaking of nearly gagging.

After the Pope’s address to congress a certain democratic congressman, Bob Brady, decided to take the water glass Pope Francis had been drinking from and share it. Brady poured what was left of the water into his mouth then into the mouths of his wife and staff not allowing them to touch the glass. The rest he sprinkled on his grand kids.

Now the first thing that comes to mind is that the pope should have spent a little more time on the “thou shalt not steal” commandment and less on global warming. America would be much better off if those thieves in Washington were finally made to feel ashamed.

And my second thought was, there is no way the pope is a holy man, otherwise Brady, his wife, staff and probably his grand kids would have burst into flames.

Now I can’t be the only one wondering why in the world the pope was invited to address congress but I do know that Bernie Sanders has suddenly got religion. Bernie was over the moon at what Pope Francis had to say, especially about Dorothy Day; she’s up for canonizing it seems and even though Dorothy worked with the poor, she was a fervent Marxist who sympathized with socialists and communists.

I’m sure Bernie was also pleased at the attention Obama gave to Pope Francis. Obama thanked the pope for reminding America of the “sacred obligation to protect our planet”. And after they woke him up, Francis thanked Obama for trying to reduce air pollution. Most of the other stuff said was just stupid.

Now the pope also asked, “Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to inflict untold suffering on individuals and society?’ Hmm, interesting! This pope doesn’t seem to have a problem with the murdering of millions of children in the womb, yet the Vatican backs the U.S. deal with Iran in fact welcomes it! Of course, predictable with all progressives, the pope is also pressuring Israel to give up its nukes.

Part of the problem the Holy See has with nuclear weapons is the cost. He believes that countries should be putting the money spent on protecting its citizens, oh say from Islam, towards the poor instead.

Not only is that the height of hypocrisy, but throwing money at the problem of poverty doesn’t work? Put down the gold chalice, Mr. Pope, and take a look around; could Vatican’s money be put to better use?

Maybe the money for that huge display at Madison Square Garden could have fed the poor for a while. Catholics are leaving “the faith” in droves and I think I may know why.

As I watched some of that enormous ceremony at the Garden last night I was struck by all the pomp and flashiness. It was as if I were watching a rock star. I thought after the show, then what? After the high of all the singing and watching men in robes with their hands clasped together, when all that is over what will sustain those people? I’ll give you one guess, he wasn’t there.


Share if you wish Liberal Democrats weren’t quite so comfortable with Pope Francis.
