Fuck the Socialist wolf in sheep's clothing politician, Pope Franny.

Ha Ha Ha Ha The pope is full of crap! He's a socialist and is big into the NWO and depopulation. Gee who was it that turned a blind eye to the Holocaust???????? Could that have been the Catholics???? YES! I'm a Roman who grew up in that church and I'm now a Christian, and I know everything about that church.

You're not a "Christian", you're a Paulist!
Christ said his message was only for the Jews.
It was only after Paul ousted Peter as the leadership of that particular Messianic Cult that Gentiles were included.

Pope Francis' new encyclical, "Fratelli Tutti," sounds more like Fruity Tooty. All lifers should be out in a prison like SuperMax in Colorado. They only see guards and no one else for the rest of their life.

Reverend Stone said...

With a modest donation, I am confident we, at the Church Of The Backyard Rock, can fix all of your butt hurts.
We received enough donations to use Roundup to expose more of Gawd's 4 billion year old rock head from the surrounding grass and weeds. Gawd told me (his voice on Earth) he will help those who donate on a sliding scale from a little help for modest gifts, to a great deal of help for those who pay thru the nose. He also said he is contemplating upgrading The Church to Cathedral level and making me a bishop, and in so doing, he says I merit an Escalade. Stay tuned for an official announcement.

Alternate headline, Francis confirms to the world that his election to the papacy was not valid as he attempts to change traditional Church teaching. He is an anti-pope...a false prophet, perhaps the false prophet of Revelation.

10:21: +1000! Obviously The Backyard Rock, the true god, is not in favor of the Great Pumpkin's plan to pack the Supreme Court with followers of a cult, so he has not only smitten the pumpkin, but also several of his minions!

The Pope say no death penalty? The Romans crucified Jesus. Yes the same Romans (Constantine era rulers) that adopted Christianity.

So you can kill an innocent man/God (Jesus) but not mass murderers who butcher families and kids?

The Pope has a screw loose

And yet the Pope is not living 2000 years ago, weirdo.
