with Daniel J. Mahoney

Pope Francis’s political, social, and economic thinking has created great consternation, but he has also roused tremendous interest of Catholics and those outside the Catholic Church in his pontificate. Daniel Mahoney has written widely about Pope Francis and joins this edition of Liberty Law Talk to discuss what he thinks are the keys to understanding the current head of the Roman Catholic Church.

It is not the duty of this or any other Pope to put their two cents in the agendas of politicians. His primary concern and the only one is the Church!! But no, he can't keep his mouth shut. He carries the message of the globalist movement withing the Church,,, Wrong in my book. Ill informed on global warming he sides w/their agenda. Again his duty is to the Church not to these socialist organizations. Was this the reason that Benedict XVI send that letter that the church was capsizing? Why did they kept the news about the gay orgy under wraps for a month? Not happy w/what I see in today's Church??? No wonder folks are going somewhere else.

I had a friend who claimed that one of the reasons he was a Catholic was becuase to be a Catholic was *hard* - it meant something, one had to strive.

In short, there was a time when the Catholic church stood as a bulwark against the post-modernist lunacy of our times.

Not so much anymore with this cretin of a Papal "leader."

My prediction: The Catholic Church WILL GO the way of the Mainline Protestant denominations when they too embraced the received wisdom "oft he day" rather than "of the ages."

Hard, sure it was hard, they did nothing to preserve the doctrines alive. They did not teach the largest flock in earth what the " Bible " said, what as a follower of the "church" should do. No teachings at all? Why? Why did I and the rest of my friends had to sit in "church" with no understanding of what is being said because they were talking in " Latin ". Discouragement of the flock is what things like that brought. The young ones were never given a chance to really understand the movement withing the "church ". How many times during the " Mass " did the father asked for going to the bible and read the passage, and then he will try to explain. Looks like that was too much work in those days. And to this sorry Pope, I wish him good luck, because his flock is leaving, because we don't like what we see.

I don't follow Catholic affairs closely, but this podcast held my interest throughout. Without even a touch of hysteria, Mahoney really explains how intellectually bad this pope is.

David,,, when a pope dedicates his time to world affairs instead of his job, means to me he is not interested in the well being of the Church and it's followers.

When Francis became Pope it was said he was a Jesuit. From what he has said and done, he acts more like a Maryknoll. But your comment is completely true. He definitely isn't following the calling of his position as the Vicar of Christ.

Francis must go. This and Vigano and Conna/Sire show this conclusively.

El papa Francisco ha tomado partido por una líder muy cuestionada por su corrupción: Cristina Kirchner. En la Argentina estamos muy desilusionados porque él no.puede hacer actividad política apoyando sólo a una parte. Sobre todo siendo el mismo Argentino.
Este Papá.nos avergüenza!

El Papa Francisco ha tomado partido por la VERDAD, como le corresponde, en Argentina y en todas partes del mundo.Quien haya leido la RERUN NOVARUM (carta magna de la Doctina Social de la Iglesia) o la MATTER ET MAGISTRA sabe que es así.En Argentina, estamos muy orgullosos de la Dra Fernández de Kichner , al menos los católicos bien informados, que como el mejor cuadro político que sin ninguna es,haya conducido al país al estado digno y católico de distribuir la riqueza pensando en todos.El problema lo tenemos hoy que un pesidente corrupto aliado a sectores financieros y tan corruptos como él se están robando el país para enriquecerse. Tenemos familias y niños con hambre y durmiendo en la calle, falta d vacunas, hospitales desprovistos de todo, escuelas derruídas, y millones de pesos gastados en fuerzas de seguridad reprimiendo y encarcelando a desposeídos y a todo quien los quiera detener.Gracias Papa Francisco por apoyarnos, Ud enaltece a la tan discutida religión Católica

Si estan tan preocupados por los pobres, que hicieron durante todo su “reinado”? Es una vergüenza el comportamiento del Papa Francisco en mi opinión, para todos los argentinos decentes y una gran desilucion tras otra. Y son muchas. Rodeado de gente impresentable, me da mucha tristeza.

A pope who would err in regards to Faith and morals, and thus deny Catholic Canon750, separating himself from Christ, and His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, which exists Through The Unity Of The Holy Ghost, would expose himself to be anti Filioque and thus anti Pope.

“It is not possible to have Sacramental Communion without Ecclesial Communion, due to The Unity Of athe Holy Ghost, for it is “Through, With, and In Christ, In The Unity Of The Holy Ghost, that Holy Mother Church exists.

“In theory, the Petrine function could be performed either by a single individual presiding over the whole Church, or by some kind of committee, board, synod or parliament – possibly with a ‘division of powers’ into judicial, legislative, administrative, and the like.”

The above statement, which denies that Christ Founded His Church, with the Pope “as visible head and Vicar Of Christ” is evidence enough that we are witnessing an attempt by those who deny the fact that “It is not possible to have Sacramental Communion without Ecclesial Communion”, to create a division of power within Christ’s Church for the sole purpose of undermining Christ’s teaching on sexual morality.

This statement, in regards to certain same-sex sexual relationships, which denies Christ’s teaching on sexual morality, making it appear as if it is possible for private morality to serve in opposition to public morality, is also a denial of the fact that “It is not possible to have Sacramental Communion without Ecclesial Communion”, due to The Unity Of The Holy Ghost:

“If there is a union of a private nature, there is neither a third party, nor is society affected. Now, if this union is given the category of marriage, and they are given adoption rights, there could be children affected.” -Jorge Bergoglio, in his book, ON HEAVEN AND EARTH, prior to being elected Pope, denying the fact that “It is not possible to have Sacramental Communion without Ecclesial Communion”, due to The Unity Of The Holy Ghost, and thus denying Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture, and The Teaching Of The Magisterium Of The Catholic Church in regards to Christ’s teaching on sexual morality.

A validly elected Pope cannot be anti Pope and anti Filioque, as a validly elected Pope must first and foremost, be in communion with Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. (Catholic Canon 750)
