I’m Nigel Farage!

I’m Nigel Farage, and you’re not. I’m the blooming guy who got merry  old England away from those bloody foreign animals who want to over run our beloved country. I’m Nigel Farage and your one of those Eyetalian wogs or wine drinking cowardly frogs from  France. I’m the guy who is going to make England a great nation again. Sorry Donald, I’m REALLY the greatest leader in the world. I’m Nigel Farage and we people of England don’t need any bloody foreigners taking away our high paying jobs!

So,those bloody Icelandic football players beat us in the tournament, the reason is simple, our English spirit has been contaminated by all those foreign immigrants who take good jobs away from us shoveling shit and picking apples! Well, we English people are taking back those high paying jobs forever! And, don’t worry about stock markets and having foreign business leave England and return to the continent. Just remember, WE ARE ENGLISHMEN AND YOU ARE NOT!!

God bless the queen!

Family Day In Italy

There is no question that Italy remains a decent God fearing nation which intends to adhere to the Catholic Church.  The Italian Bishop Conference has sponsored a Family  Day protest to ensure Catholics do not regard “marriage and civil unions on the  same level as the family.” And, of course, we know what “The Family” is– a man and a woman having sex.

I understand the Catholic Church is convinced that a man and a woman is  “the Family that God wants.” OK, this is clear. My question is: “If God believes that it takes a man and a woman to create a family, then why the  heck doesn’t he get a wife and form the family he wants!!

Iranians Welcomed By Pope

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran is now in Italy and among the folks he will be talking with is Pope Francis. I realize the idea of a Catholic Pope talking to an evil MUSLIM man infuriates good Catholics like Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio because their concept of Catholicism is to hate and hate. Rouhani is on a business trip to negotiate billion dollar deals with European business corporations. Yes, Iran will soon have returned about $50 billion that has been frozen for decades. NO,the money will not go to terrorists, but to improve life in Iran for Iranians!

I always assumed the Donald Trump had this great business plan, but for some reason he is not interested in $50 billion. Donald boasts that he is a very rich  man, actually, he has about $5 billion which places him way down on the list of our wealthy folks. He Donald, how about a meeting with  Rouhani?

No Room In The Church For Jews

During the past two thousand years we Jews have been  murdered, we have been compelled to abandon our religion and become a good Christian in order to save our souls.  Pope Francis decided that it was time for the Catholic Church to get out of the  business of converting Jews and let them be who the heck they want to be. “The Church is therefore obliged to view evangelization to Jews  who believe in one God  in a different manner. The Church neither conducts or supports  institutional mission  work directed at Jews.”

He also noted that Christians “never can be an antisemite because Jews were the root of Christianity.”

NOW, he tells them!

Pope Francis Comments Upset Catholics

I recognize that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and folks like Rudy Giuliani or Rick Santorum are devout Catholics and certainly have a right to be upset these days. What about that stuff regarding “the idolatry of money!” Doesn’t that man know it is the wealthy who create high paying jobs for those working in fast food?? Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Foundation is real angry at this guy from Italy telling we Americans how to live or think. “I was astonished by some of the things he’s said about public order. He’s the pope least prepared to do public comments in the past 150 years!”

After all, how does he dare to comment when prior popes like Pope Pius XII were willing to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Then again, he knew enough to keep his mouth shut during the Holocaust. Now, there was a real pope who opposed abortion, adultery, gays,that is those gay of the sexual persuasion. The Catholic church has lost contact with many secular Catholics and silence Pope Francis, and there wille even more silence on Sundays in Church.

Other Rick Is Upset

Rick Santorum is upset at President Obama and the other Rick is upset at Pope Francis. Rick II is a Catholic, unlike Rick I so he has opinions on the Catholic Church. This Rick is very, very angry at Pope Francis who refuses to take care of the Church and goes off on getting involved in controversial issues that have nothing to do with Catholicism. “The Church has gotten it wrong a few times on science, and I think we are better off leaving science to scientists and focusing on what we’re really good at, which is theology and morality. When we get involved with political and controversial scientific theories, I think the Church is no longer credible.”

Pope Francis has a master degree in chemistry and sort of has studied something about science. Yes, Rick, the church did make a mistake about with Galileo, but the issue was not about science, it was about theology. At the latest count about 95% of climate SCIENTISTS agree that global warming is happening. It is not a “controversy.” The only people who disagree are the nut cases who do not believe in SCIENCE.

OH, Pope Francis has also demonstrated that he does not believe in science by agreeing there has been evolution of life on this planet while Rick believes the world is about 15,000 years old. And, this guy wants to be president of a modern society??

Vatican Safe, For Now!

There is some evidence that terrorists were planning an attack upon the Vatican. Initial reports indicate that Islamic groups connected to al-Qaeda were ready to send in the suicide bombers against the Vatican in order to shut up the Pope who constantly makes statements about the need for peace in the Middle East. However, our research indicates that not only are Muslim terrorists angry at Pope Francis, but so are a heck of a lot of Catholics who regard his comments about gays and lesbians as insulting to all they hold dear in the Catholic religion. After all, would you want your daughter sitting in church next to some LESBIANS! One suspects there are some priests who do not like all this talk and action about predators upon the young. They believe it is their right to seek out young boys for sex mates. Just read the Bible.

Pope Francis has brought some fresh air into the Catholic Church. OK, Islamic terrorists are angry at him, then again, they hate imams who speak for peace. But, if Pope Francis lives long enough there will be hundreds of priests who would welcome his death. The Vatican curia do not want anyone examining their financial transactions. I have a hunch, threats upon the life of Pope Francis are more threatening from within the Curia than from without!

Wither Pope Francis?

Pope Francis recently made a remark about the possibility that he may not be around for a long time. After all, he is not a young man and his life expectancy indicates a decade of future life for this good man. He now must become concerned about his legacy. Sorry, once in heaven one can not do earthly good deeds. So, what can this good man do before death?

1. He must address the reality that modern Catholics in Europe and the US are simply not on the same page about birth control.

2. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and abortion.

3. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and modern nations on the issue of female role in the church.

What could he do?

1. Select modern thinking men to become Cardinals.

2. Confront the issue of gays openly and welcome them into the church.

3. Remember that it was Catholic churches in America which first integrated churches and schools.

Make some dramatic move about one of these issues!

Italian Army Into Battle?

Each day it becomes increasingly clear that Libya is becoming a center of chaos and destruction. Frankly, I doubt if there is a single political scientist who could even name the various groups now fighting for power, let alone being able to inform the world as to their goals for the land. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is proposing to send Italian troops to this land which lies as close to Italy as Cuba does to the United States of America. The dispatch of Italian troops to North Africa would be an interesting proposal. The last time Italian soldiers fought in northern Africa the results were not to the best. For example, when the Italian army invaded Egypt in 1941 it had 250,000 men who were opposed by about 50,000 British soldiers. For some reason, the British surrounded this invasion force and destroyed most of it.

I am not claiming the modern Italian army could not hold its own against Muslim terrorists. The initial problem is sorting out which Muslim terrorist is better of worse than the other Muslim terrorists. This is among the modern mysteries of life. Good Luck.

Pope Francis Loves Children

Pope Francis is a wonderful man. Pope Francis inherited an institution that mentally remains locked in a world that once was, but now, not is. I recognize that anyone in the role of Pope confronts inertia and dead wood that opposes change. The Italian Curia is:

1. Against birth control

2. It is against women as priests

3. It is against priests being able to marry.

So, when Pope Francis makes comments concerning the reality of modern life one must recognize that his words are carefully selected. He recently informed Catholics that he was concerned about their refusal to have many children. “A society with a greedy generation that doesn’t want to surround itself with children, that considers them above all a worrisome, a weight, a risk, is a depressed society. Their choice not to have children is selfish.”

I have four children. I also understand that in poverty areas of the world, having lots of children dooms most of them to a life of poverty and illness. There is need for birth control. In the United States of America young people are in a society in which the rich have and they do not. The cost of raising a child can be over $300,000. Sorry, Pope Francis, it is not being selfish, it is being realistic.
