Meet the Communists Praised by the Pope in his Congressional Address
During Pope Francis’ address to Congress in joint session, four names were given by the pontiff as examples of honorable American people. The first two are well-known, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr, but most people aren’t familiar with the other two, Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day. Most would be shocked at the real truth behind this subtle stunt by the Jesuit Pope to promote his Marxist agenda.
Basically, Pope Francis is attempting what the Soviet Union could not manage to pull off in the past, and that’s to forcibly convert the US to Communist ideology.
The United States’ largest lay-run apostolates, called Catholic Answers, whose mission statement is to “help good Catholics become better Catholics,” describes Thomas Merton (1915–1968), as a womanizer, and member of the Young Communist League. Thomas Merton also fathered a child, (he was a Trappist monk, but some people also describe him as a Zen Buddhist.)
In the last year of his life, he wrote in his journal while traveling through Asia:
Last night I dreamed I was, temporarily, back at Gethsemani. I was dressed in a Buddhist monk’s habit, but with more black and red and gold, a “Zen habit,” in color more Tibetan than Zen . . . I met some women in the corridor, visitors and students of Asian religion, to whom I was explaining I was a kind of Zen monk and Gelugpa together, when I woke up. (Asian Journal, 107)
Let me remind you that Merton is supposed to be a Catholic monk not a Zen Buddhist, but Pope Francis believes that we should all honor that added value in his One World Religion set up. In fact, he did not mention Jesus once in his speech to Congress, but he mentioned Moses, who is recognized as Prophet by all three Abrahamic religions.
Pope Francis’ other choice, Dorothy Day, does not seem to be any better. David Ripe for the Catholic Media Coalition wrote this about Dorothy Day in 2012, when the American bishops unanimously backed the advancement of the cause of Dorothy Day through the process leading to sainthood:
“while she has the unanimous support of the bishops, Day is a controversial figure among many rank and file Catholics who do not consider her an acceptable role model. For them, she exemplifies the archetypal “liberal Catholic” or “social justice Catholic.” These terms refer to individuals who are often disposed to try to change the Church in various ways and who are strongly animated and influenced by left-leaning political ideology. Many such Catholics became emboldened following Vatican II and made chimerical interpretations of its documents. Chief among the objections to Day’s nomination for sainthood is the belief that she embraced the doctrines of Marxism and made them the framework of her social activism.”
David Ripe added, citing the well documented research of other sources that clearly demonstrates how traditional Catholics, the same ones who are now beginning to oppose Pope Francis in growing numbers, perceive Dorothy Day:
“Carol Byrne, a British researcher, has investigated Day’s life extensively and has chronicled her activities and writings, along with those of Peter Maurin, in The Catholic Worker Movement, 1933-1980: A Critical Analysis (AuthorHouse UK Ltd.). While Day’s defenders insist that she fully disavowed Marxism after her conversion to Catholicism, Byrne’s research leads her to conclude otherwise.”
So having analyzed who Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton really are, could the church be close to another schism? In Rome today, as I am writing this, it appears to be a growing concern amongst many traditional Catholics that don’t accept a church full of compromises and hypocrisy like the church now proposed by Pope Francis.
Even CNN religion Editor Daniel Burke wrote that “abortion and same-sex marriage received scant mention in the Pope’s short address. Instead Francis — the first pontiff to address Congress and the first from Latin America — focused on immigration, the death penalty, racial injustice, the weapons trade, and poverty”.
Are we going to listen to the Pope, and limit our gun rights, or discuss the death penalty, when the growing immigration and the refugee crisis will most likely escalate crime?
In Europe and countries like Italy, crime is reaching levels never touched before, and the unarmed population is being raped and murdered daily by so called refugees or immigrants, causing growing concern amongst the population.
In Sicily at the end of August, two senior citizens of Spanish origin, Vincenzo Solano and Mercedes Ibanez, were brutally killed by a refugee from the Ivory Coast, living in a refugee center nearby, who after cutting the throat of the husband, even raped the poor old woman before throwing her off the balcony. This case outraged Italy, but Pope Francis has said nothing about it. Instead he went on with his criminal plan to convince all of Europe and the US to give up their rights to the millions of incoming refugees and immigrants, and to force the US to give up their just right to carry guns and defend themselves from this emerging chaos.
The Holy See delegation to the United Nations has issued a Position Statement on the Outcome document of the United Nations Summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” The Statement states the agenda is a “clear sign” that the international community has come together to eradicate poverty, and will work to ensure that all people will have the conditions necessary to live in freedom and dignity. Really?
On the morning of the 25th of September at 8:30 am ET, Fox News blatantly admitted that, “Pope Francis would be giving his marching orders to the UN,” We must oppose this whole charade, before we all lose our rights and our freedom. Stand up before it’s too late, now is the time!
