Pope Francis Is Correct: A Good Catholic Meddles in Politics Comments

In his daily homily of September 16, 2013 Pope Francis used the account of the Roman Centurion to dabble in politics. (Luke 7:1-10)  He spoke to those in public office. He also addressed the question of whether Christians should participate in politics. There is no solidarity in a culture that kills its own children and calls such evil a legal right.What we face in America is a moral crisis. The ... Continue Reading

    Amen. When a Catholic priest votes for Obama once/twice it reveals a very sad state of affairs. I applaud Pope Francis' call to get involved.

    I believe it was Pope John the XXIII who decided that Catholic priests could no longer run for public office, such as Congress. Before that, we had a few in DC. If Pope Francis really feels that Catholics should meddle in politics, then I think he should allow Catholic priests to run for office. We need a -- I was going to say a little -- a lot of morality in politics. These days, it's sorely lacking.

    Thank you for the article.

    The Holy Father told us to "make a mess". I would make a mess of the corrupt "Catholic" politician-Democrat complex. They are responsible for so much of the killing of innocent boys and girls in their mom's womb. Their hero, Obama, even advocates killing boys and girls outside of their mom's womb after they survive the attemot to kill them in the womb. These "Catholic" poiticians also advocate calling "marriage" what God calls an abomination, i.e. homosexuality.

    Catholics who should know better justify voting for such evil because "Jesus said to care for the poor". To call the welfare mess we have today "caring for the poor" is quite revolting. It is certainly not following the Bibliccal admonition to care for widows and orphans. The "social justice" economy promoted by "Catholic" politicians is brutal in its effect, especially against those of us on the lower half of the economic ladder.

    I pray daily for God to "make a mess" of such "Catholic" polticians and their corrupt moral and economic program.

    And so do bad so-called catholics, like the 60% who voted for Obama.

    Excellent article. This rebukes the Liberal Left's con game on the Religious, "Politics and Religion don't mix." "Keep your Religious views to yourself" BUT again, the Liberal Left has their old reliable allies in the USCCB and Liberal priests who dominate in numbers. These individuals discourage anyone getting involved in pro-Life or any activity that opposes the Communist Democrat Party. Whenever they do get political, they always come down on the side of Liberalism or the Communist Democrat Party. For example, 'Immigration Reform'. Now guess who benefits from this??? You guessed it, the Communist Democrat Party. Inspite of all that has happened the Bishop and priests of my dioceses are still the good faithful liberals that makes Obama proud.
