The Bromance Between Castro and The Pope Deepens: Capitalism Bad; Communism Good

El Pappa arrived in Cuba yesterday to strengthen his budding bromance with Raul Castro. It was touching in a communist sort of way. Really. Castro went on and on about the evils of capitalism and how the Pope understood social justice for all. Straining credulity and causing me personally to roll on the floor laughing, Castro blathered on about a virtuous society with high ethical and spiritual values. They are communists. They only utilize religion when it suits their agenda. Families, ethics, morals, justice… please. These are dictatorial despots who routinely imprison people, torture them and murder at will. It’s a blasphemous joke to schmooze with the likes of the Castro brothers. Then to lecture on behalf of the poor and downtrodden in a country that specializes on making their people that way and keeping them in that same station for generations, is just ludicrous. The Pope is not dumb and surely he recognizes what is going on and the Marxism that he is promoting. Shameful.

From the Washington Examiner:

Pope Francis has arrived in Havana this afternoon and starts a historic 10-day visit to Cuba and the United States, according to reports.

Cuban President Raul Castro welcomed Pope Francis in a long speech at the airport. In his speech, Castro said the communist government has “founded an equitable society with social justice” in Cuba and he praised the pope’s critiques of the global economic system that has “globalized capital and turned money into its idol.”

Castro thanked the pope for facilitating negotiations that led to a detente between the United States and Cuba. Castro is also calling for the end of the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba, which he called “cruel, immoral and illegal,” and the return of the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

Castro praised his country’s socialist model for building a society “focused on human beings and the family” and said he’s “firmly determined to … build a just and virtuous society with high ethical and spiritual values.”

“As the honorable priest Félix Varela indicated, ‘We want the future generations to inherit from us the dignity of man, and to remember what it takes to recover it so that they fear losing it,'” said Castro, according to a translation of his remarks.

Cubans, who live in a country frequently cited for human rights abuses, “exercise religious freedom as a right consecrated in our Constitution,” Castro claimed.

The holy leader of the Catholic Church will be in Cuba until Sept. 22 when he departs for Washington. While in Cuba, the Pope could have some politics on his plate, the Associated Press reported.

Vatican officials told the Associated Press that the plight of dissidents might come up in private meetings between Francis and the country’s leader Raul Castro.

The pope has been opposed to the long-standing U.S. trade and travel embargo. New regulations issued on Friday are intended to increase travel and trade between the U.S. and Cuba.

The regulations are part of an effort by the Obama administration to normalize relations between the two countries.

Francis is expected to not just discuss politics while in Cuba, but also try to strengthen relations between the church and the Cuban people, the AP reported.

He plans to visit several places off the beaten path, such as traveling to the eastern Cuban city of Santiago to pray at the sanctuary of Cuba’s patron saint, the AP said.

The pope is expected to continue his travels to the United States and arrives in Washington on Sept. 22.

There, he will become the first pope to address Congress, where he is sure to discuss recent controversial views on the dangers of capitalism and that climate change is manmade.

Not all lawmakers are happy with the Pope’s historic address.

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Az., said that he would boycott the pontiff’s visit mainly due to his thoughts on climate change.

“If the Pope wants to devote his life to fighting climate change then he can do so in his personal time,” he wrote in a letter on the website “But to promote questionable science as Catholic dogma is ridiculous.”

The pope is also expected to proclaim the first saint on U.S. soil through “canonizing controversial (and Hispanic) missionary, Junipero Serra, according to the AP.

Francis also plans stops in Philadelphia and New York to speak at the United Nations.

He will also make several stops in unorthodox places along the way. For instance, in Washington he will meet the city’s homeless and in New York he plans to visit Harlem.

A Pope that panders, who knew? The Pope will canonize on US soil for the first time, a Hispanic missionary. Obvious much? Then, Pope Francis will mingle with the poor in Harlem and in Philly. Hope he has armed body guards. Social justice only goes so far with #BlackLivesMatter, the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panthers. Then there is the Pope’s climate encyclical which will push the elitist hoax on the faithful in America. A hoax that not only embodies a one world government under the UN with massive taxation, but also promotes the stripping of constitutional rights. It also conceals the plan for a worldwide church. It is corruption on a level never even dreamed of by Americans and you have the head of the Catholic Church promoting it. Stunning. The Pope will tell Americans they have a responsibility to the poor and the disadvantaged that trumps the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. To turn away from our freedoms in favor of helping the needy – worldwide. Shun capitalism. Capitalism bad; Communism good.
