"The Faith is Europe. And Europe is the Faith," wrote Hilaire Belloc

Buchanan is a blowhard, but that's not what he said at all.
 
2013-03-15 01:26:06 PM  
Brown? We have Trump, Boehner, and Mitt on Univision for comparison -- he's certainly less orange, so I'm sure that means he's not brown.

Did  submitter read a different article?

I was having trouble reading the article after a giant pop-up popped up on the screen announcing "OBAMA'S FOUR HORSEMEN!!!"

The guy is Italian-Argentinian.

He's more white than most of Argentina.

Here's a dogwhistle you'll hear in coming months: "Liberation theology."
 
2013-03-15 01:41:20 PM  
This would require the Church to admit that for 2,000 years it had been in error on matters of faith and morals, and hence is not infallible. But if the Church could have been so wrong for so long, while the world was right, and many had suffered for centuries because the Church erred, what argument would be left for remaining Catholic?

You mean like when the finally admitted that the earth goes around the sun? Like that?

Pat Buchanan. 'Nuff said.
 
2013-03-15 01:42:03 PM  
From what I understand, Frankie the Pope is the son of Italian immigrants.

Are they still considered brown?
 
2013-03-15 01:42:11 PM  
Also, cue Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken.
 
2013-03-15 01:43:13 PM  
For the purposes of this bigoted article, Christian = White.
 
2013-03-15 01:43:31 PM  
So they don't want New Pope? They want Pope Classic or better yet Crystal Popesi?
 
2013-03-15 01:43:39 PM  
Subby,at least read the farking article.
 
2013-03-15 01:43:39 PM  
The way I understand it, most Argentinians consider themselves to be European as well.

2013-03-15 01:45:11 PM  
Weird that TownHall would run an article applicable only to Catholics on a site devoted to what should be something as (on the surface) non-denominational as conservatism.
 
2013-03-15 01:45:51 PM  

Nurglitch: Here's a dogwhistle you'll hear in coming months: "Liberation theology."


This. But, if Francis (hope he lightens up) actually goes through the doctrine of liberation theology, things could go interestingly.

But still, I had a feeling that the person who wrote the article was furiously masturbating to the idea of a 'Dying Europe'.

Uhh Pat? Does the phrase "Vatican II" ring any bells?
 
2013-03-15 01:47:16 PM  
White people. Always getting the shaft from minorities for thousands of years.
 
2013-03-15 01:48:06 PM  
Wait 'til they hear about Jesus Christ's skin color.
 
2013-03-15 01:49:47 PM  

mantabulous: Subby,at least read the farking article.


It starts off with these words: Pat Buchanan.  That's far enough to assume that the rest reeks of racism.

Don't evangelicals hate the catholics and the pope anyway?  Why do they even care what race he is?
 
2013-03-15 01:53:22 PM  
Pope Francis -- Against the West?

Hey look, it's someone who can't find Argentina on a map.
 
2013-03-15 01:53:50 PM  
Subby, indicate shiat like this is from the anus of Buchanan.  Now I have to go wash my eyes, and clean my network.

IrateShadow: Don't evangelicals hate the catholics and the pope anyway?  Why do they even care what race he is?


White/European Pope: "We won't listen from for foolish Poppery"

Non-white/European Pope: RRRAAAAAGGGGHH!!!!! MAIM! KILL! BURN! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!.
 
2013-03-15 01:55:47 PM  
I think Buchanan is an idiot. I think the article was stupid. But subby's headline is not even close to what he was saying (which was just as stupid).
 
2013-03-15 01:55:57 PM  

Lollipop165: The guy is Italian-Argentinian.

Well, he's about AS white as most Argentinians. Most of the country is white Europeans, with maybe like 10-20% Mestizo and Native, if that.

Son of a biatch, I read horsemen as hor semen and now I can't unsee it.

Ever wonder why they call it "Latin America" Pat? Did you ever look up the origins of "Latino"?

Uh, Pat Buchanan is pretty Catholic.  Also, to your point, a lot of Evangelicals have allied themselves with Catholics over the abortion issue.

"The Faith is Europe. And Europe is the Faith," wrote Hilaire Belloc after that bloodbath we call World War I. "Either Europe will return to the Faith or she will perish."

I thought Belloc's religion was archeology!? But I'm not surprised townhall would quote someone who worked for the Nazis.

That requires coherent thinking.

He likes women, so that's an improvement.

He's have the moral papal countenance of a Borgia.  It would be a nostalgic Papacy to be sure, and maybe an inspiration for Assassin's Creed V.

Iron Eyes Cody was NOT a Native American but I understand your point.

Pat Buchanan is livid that he was jilted for the job.

...and yes, he hates the Gospel, Catholics, Blacks, Latinos, Californians, New England...

Wendy's Chili: From what I understand, Frankie the Pope is the son of Italian immigrants.

Well duh!  Haven's you seen the Godfather?  Some of them are almost BEIGE!!!!!
 
2013-03-15 02:06:03 PM  

Lsherm: Buchanan is a blowhard, but that's not what he said at all.


Yeah, he pretty much said exactly the opposite.

On the other hand, I'm not sure "don't worry, he's not actually brown, he's European by blood" is much better than "oh no, he's brown!"

I'm not sure the second half of the article's "I know he likes poor people, he IS from Latin America, but at least he's a bigot who hates women, so it's not ALLLLL bad" is a good approach to take either.
