Pope Francis spends much of his time attacking the United States.
And the Pope has nothing good to say about capitalism, claiming it is evil.
But Pope Francis lost all moral authority by kneeling down to this Communist country.
The Catholic Church is in turmoil.
Some long-time Catholic leaders are even claiming there might be a major split coming soon.
A split that could be as impactful as the one On October 31, 1517, when priest and scholar Martin Luther nailed his theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.
That single act began the Protestant Reformation.
And just like in 1517, it is the modern-day Church leaders who, through their actions, are causing the split.
Possibly no Church leader has been as culpable as the current Pope, Pope Francis.
His brand of Marxist ideology mixed with quasi-Catholic theology has caused a major rift in the Church around the world.
Some have already left, and others who remain Catholic have been claiming that Francis is not even a legitimate Pope.
Even more Catholic leaders and congregants are saying the Church has been co-opted and corrupted by Communists.
Certainly, Pope Francis’ most recent actions point to this.
In fact, the editors of the Wall Street Journal have just published a scathing indictment of Pope Francis.
The premise of their hard-hitting article is that Francis has undermined the Church’s moral authority by pandering to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
One example of which is the Vatican’s recent renewal of its secret agreement with the CCP on the appointment of bishops in Communist China.
This agreement, in place since 2018, has resulted in the ordination of just six bishops, despite at least 36 vacancies.
In fact, the major outcome of this agreement has been “to mute Vatican criticism of human-rights abuses,” the editors state in the WSJ op-ed, “from the genocide of the Muslim Uyghurs to the political prosecution of Cardinal Joseph Zen in Hong Kong.”
The op-ed continues its indictment, saying Pope Francis, “who is so critical of the U.S. and capitalism, is silent on China,” the essay asserts. “This is a return to the Vatican’s failed Ostpolitik of the 1960s and 1970s, when Rome muted criticism of the Soviet Union and its East European satellites.”
In eight years as Pope, Francis has gone out of his way to carefully avoid doing or saying anything that could be seen as criticism of Communist Chinese leadership.
Including during China’s brutal crackdown of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement and its continued genocide of Muslim Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region.
According to the WSJ, “Reports suggest that more than a million Uyghurs are held in concentration camps in the autonomous Xinjiang territory, where they have are subjected to genetic testing, hard labor, organ harvesting, torture, and forced abortions.”
Pope Francis has even refused to condemn the CCP’s crackdown on Christian churches and Catholic leaders.
Every year at Christmas and Easter, the Pope reads out a long list of human rights abuses and suffering and injustice from around the world and does not list abuses and genocide going on in Communist China.
For example, in his 2020 Christmas blessing, Francis mentioned the suffering people of Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, the Yazidis, Israelis and Palestinians, the Lebanese people, Ukraine, Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Cameroon, Chile and Venezuela, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
Communist China was left out of even a mention in the list, just as it is every single time the Pope recognizes human rights abuses.
The Wall Street Journal is absolutely correct on this and it’s about time someone called the Vatican out for it.
