Mystery Cult Symbolism

Now that attention must be paid, an AP story on Frankie the First (& his fellow Argie papal candidate).
Lessee here. Oh. We are, naturellement, correct:
Bergoglio couldn’t prevent Argentina from becoming the first Latin American country to legalize gay marriage, or stop its president, Cristina Fernandez, from promoting free contraception and artificial insemination. When Bergoglio argued that gay adoptions discriminate against children, Fernandez compared his tone to “medieval times and the Inquisition.”

This kind of demonization is unfair, says Rubin, who wrote Bergoglio’s authorized biography, “The Jesuit.”

“Is Bergoglio a progressive — a liberation theologist even? No. He’s no third-world priest. Does he criticize the International Monetary Fund, and neoliberalism? Yes. Does he spend a great deal of time in the slums? Yes,” Rubin said.

Critics also accuse him of failing to stand up publicly against the country’s military dictatorship from 1976-1983, when victims and their relatives often brought first-hand accounts of torture, death and kidnappings to the priests he supervised as leader of the Jesuit Order in Argentina.
Yep, to hell w/ people "disappearing" (from helicopters over the ocean) the important thing is keeping the queers in their place, &, Mother Teresa-style, mopping the brows of the dying while never lifting a finger to change the societies, systems & structures that condemn the poor to perpetual poverty, & give the wealthy always increasing wealth & power. I.e., the shallow & substanceless poses of "compassion" that reactionary political parties love world-wide. The Pope is a pig. Who gives a fuck how "humble" he is?
In contrast, Bergoglio stands out for his austerity. As Argentina’s top church official, he’s never lived in the ornate church mansion in Buenos Aires, preferring a simple bed in a downtown room heated by a small stove on frigid weekends. For years, he took public transportation around the city, and cooked his own meals.
And we suppose he never exercised any power or anything like that. Just rode around on public transit all day eating his home-cooked meals? Bullshit. More shallow symbolism from The Whore of Babylon.

Nice whore.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
