People are saying this was taken out of context. My dear Friend and Preacher John Haller wrote the following excellent response: .Nothing was taken out of context. The Pope said what he said. It's important to note what he didn't say. When he spoke to Congress, he had plenty of praise for an apostate, contemplative mystic named Thomas Merton. The one time when this weekend he mentioned Jesus, he left it hanging at the comment
"and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross..." He never mentioned the triumph of the cross. He had the world stage. Massive fail.
Why do you think that is? It's obvious - he doesn't believe in the triumph of the cross. Tonight at Madison Square Garden he had to offer the sacrifice again. Tomorrow, he will do it again in Philadelphia, joined by a parade of apostate "evangelical" leaders. Why? Because he believes that the work of Christ was not sufficient. He's based at a massive cathedral in Rome that was financed and built with funds obtained as a result of the same untruth: the failure of the cross. When the Vatican was being built People were told that they would be punished in purgatory but they could get out early if they financed this monstrosity. Now, we're told that someone who pulls an exact quote from the Pope's words out is sowing discord or is not "SPEAKING THE TRUTH." The Pope's exact words simply explain the whole system that he represents. It is a false system that denies the finished, full, complete, work of Christ. All devout or practicing Catholics should really research what they're worshiping and supporting.

Vatican Council Calls for World Government, Central Bank
Written by Michael Tennant
A “global political authority” and a “central world bank”: These are the solutions that the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace recommends for the worldwide financial crisis. “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority,” the document outlining the council’s recommendations, is, in the words of author and Roman Catholic Thomas E. Woods, Jr., “deeply confused,” at once recognizing that central bank-driven inflation and easy credit are at the root of the world’s financial woes and prescribing even bigger government and more highly centralized banking as the cure.

Pope Francis took umbrage at comments Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has made about immigrants, saying in an interview that the real estate mogul was “not Christian.”
The pope’s strong dismissal of Trump was in response to measures Trump has proposed on the campaign trail, including building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and deporting millions of undocumented immigrants living and working in the U.S.
When asked by a reporter, “Can a good Catholic vote for this man?” Francis responded by saying, “Thank God he said I was a politician, because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus.’ So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn — well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.”
He continued: “And then, a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”
Editor’s note: Trump has issued a response to the pope’s criticism:
Donald Trump pointed out that Pope Francis lives behind huge, thick stone walls and refuses to take in immigrants.
Yet he wants Europe and the US to lower their standards of living and take in third world refugees.
