Pope Francis Sticking It to Republicans

Not an Asshole!
The Catholic church along with other Christian churches has been a shit stain on humanity for centuries but that may be changing. The Bible is bullshit but sometimes bullshit can be the fertilizer for good things to grow. Thomas Jefferson was faced with a world of brainwashed and delusional Christians so he created what is known as the Jefferson Bible. Jefferson took it upon himself to remove all the poison and he wrote a book called the Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth. (CLICK HERE for free PDF) Based on what is in the Bible Jesus Christ was quite immoral himself but the popular notion of Jesus is that of the Prince of Peace, sacrificial lamb and the redeemer of souls. That's all bullshit but being as it may it's a good thing for the lemmings to believe. In other words be nice to people let them know that they are fixable and try not to be an asshole which is something of which most Republicans are incapable.

Pope Francis is giving the conservative Catholics fuck wads like Pat Buchanan constipation. Now they are seeing what it's like having something shoved up your ass that you can't shit out like so many young boys who get molested by Catholic priests and Republicans. Unlike other leaders in the Roman Catholic Church this pope is neither a pedophile or a pedophile enabler.

Pope Francis is a "blessed are the meek and poor" sort of pope and not some corporate Nazi like Pope Ratty Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict.

From Politico:

Catholic Republicans are developing a pope problem. Earlier this month, Francis recognized Palestinian statehood. This summer, he’s going to issue an encyclical condemning environmental degradation. And in September, just as the GOP primary race heats up, Francis will travel to Washington to address Congress on climate change.
Francis may be popular with the general public, but key Republican primary constituencies — hawks, climate-change skeptics and religious conservatives, including some Catholics, are wary of the pope’s progressivism. Some, pronouncing themselves “Republicans first and Jesus second,” even say they would look askance at a candidate perceived to hew too closely to the bishop of Rome. This internal conflict flips a familiar script, in which Democrats like John Kerry and Joe Biden were labeled “cafeteria Catholics” when their stances on social issues like abortion and gay marriage differed from those of the church.
“In northwest Iowa, we are discussing this a great deal, and sometimes it’s hard for us to reconcile the pronouncements we read from the Holy Father with our conservative principles,” said Sam Clovis, a Catholic and political activist who’s run for U.S. Senate and state treasurer in Iowa.

Jeb Bush — who praised the pontiff in a commencement speech at Liberty University this month — could lose out in the Iowa caucus, said Clovis. “It’s going to cause a lot of problems for Jeb Bush, because Republicans are simply not going to take him seriously,” he said.
Bush declined to address whether his admiration for the pope might affect how religious conservatives view him. In his speech at Liberty he said, “I cannot think of any more subversive moral idea ever loosed on the world than ‘the last shall be first, and the first last.’
“It’s a voice like no other,” he continued, “seen in the example of Francis the saint, or of Francis the pope.”

The other Catholic Republicans in the presidential conversation have taken their own wary approaches to Francis.
