The liberal media are so in love with Pope Francis that they can’t report the hard truth about his blatant interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and what it represents.
Not only was socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) invited to a conference of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS) on Catholic social teaching and the world situation, he also met personally with Pope Francis.
A secular Jewish atheist, Sanders is not even a member of the Catholic Church. “I am not actively involved with organized religion,” Sanders has said. His brother Larry says, “He is quite substantially not religious.”
Instead, he is a socialist with strong ties, if not membership in, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the same group that backed Barack Obama’s run for president in 2008 and is the U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.
His involvement in the Vatican conference demonstrates how Pope Francis is moving the Roman Catholic Church into the global socialist camp.
ABC News quoted the pope as saying that his “brief encounter” on Saturday with presidential candidate Sanders was a sign of good manners, “nothing more.” The Reuters news agency quoted the pope as saying that anyone who thought the meeting was political should “look for a psychiatrist.”
In fact, Sanders’ appearance is much more than a brief encounter. It is entirely consistent with how, under Pope Francis, the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences has become what conservative Catholic Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute calls a haven for Marxists and socialists. He says that these groups are maneuvering to bring into being an international socialist order. (Click to Article)
