In a world crying out for moral leadership, the Pope should speak less about his inane indignation that the climate is changing and more about abortion, homosexual marriage, persecution of Christians in the Middle East, and other real issues in our time. I'd like to see the Pope be the Church's representative to the world, not the world's representative to the Church!
The Pope's concern for the poor and the marginalized is completely appropriate, but his affinities for Cuban-style socialism, tyranny, and overregulation are not. Shouldn't the Pope instead value technological capitalism, the greatest mechanism of poverty alleviation the world has ever seen?
The Pope didn't completely capitulate to a progressive agenda during his visit, though. While in D.C., he stopped by to show his support for the nuns suing the government over Obamacare, perhaps a little payback for the transvestite ambush that Obama inflicted on him earlier. Liberals also aren't quite so pleased with him for canonizing missionary priest Junipero Serra who converted thousands of native Americans.
Here's the bottom line: while we all fall short of God's perfect standards, progressives are distinguished from us by their insistence in calling what is wrong, right.
I'll be speaking more about the failures of the progressive ideology next month in Houston, and I hope you can join me! I'll be delivering the keynote at the Spirit Of Freedom Republican Women's PAC gala event. My fiancee, Debbie Fancher, will be singing "God Bless America" to open the event, and I'll be having dinner with the attendees. Hope to see you there! Tickets are only on sale until October 12, so reserve your seat now!
