Pope Francis

Playing up to Palestinians is playing with the fire of G-d

An agreement has been released by the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church and in it he referred to the “State of Palestine.” The agreement deals with aspects of “the life and activity of the Catholic Church in Palestine.”

This treaty is very disturbing in that the Vatican is officially stating its unilateral recognition of Palestine as a state which it is not. This is a political hot potato in which the Pontiff has no business delving. The Pope has wittingly or unwittingly entered into an arena that is beyond the church’s scope and beyond the authority of his governance of the religious life of Catholic’s.

Will Pope Bring Blessings or Curses to the Catholic Church?

Pope Francis will be welcomed to the Holy Land by Israel on May 25, 2014.  His visit will, no doubt, be touted by the press as a renewed call for peace and reconciliation among the diverse and divided population who call this place home.  His visit brings to mind the long and turbulent history of Christianity’s connection to Israel. The Pope is supposedly bringing with him a message of unity and peace however it is not for everyone.  Reports state that he is planning to meet with the Mufti of Jerusalem on Israel's holiest site, the Temple Mount.  What a slap in the face to Israel.  Clearly the Pope seems to be aligning himself with the Palestinians.
