So an incalculably rich monolith best known for legions of never-questioning acolytes bent on spreading the gospel under pain of death and for covering up wanton abuse of little boys...versus the Catholic Church?

bluorangefyre: I was gonna say in another thread that we needed to strap Kanye West to a rocket and launch him directly into the Sun, but now I think we'd have room to squeeze in Rush on that one-way trip to the nearest star.


Kanye is a colossal douchebag but if I had a gun with 2 bullets and he was standing between me and Rush, I would have to say, "Excuse me Mr. West, I have to double tap this motherfarker".

Wow, Rush was willing to cut the Pope some slack.  I'm sure the Pope was mighty grateful that El Rushbo cut him some slack.  But now, The Fat One is PO'd...Watch out, Pope!!  Rush may not cut you any slack in the future!!  Then you'll be in REAL trouble!  So shape up Francis, before Rush makes your life a living hell!

Oh poor Rush. When it's the Dalai Lama or some brown guy with a funny name telling folks the same thing, it's OK, because, obviously, they just don't know any better, but it's almost as if some hippy from Nazareth had gotten to the Pope...

Good luck with this one. I mean, it won't really change the Prosperity Gospel folks, because they parted ways with the Bible a long while ago in favor of their wallets, but Rush and his ilk might want to choke back their bile a bit, because this is a fight they really don't want to pick.

Most of them can't read very well. By the time they get to The New Testament they are so tired, they just assume that this Jesus fellow basically confirms everything they've been reading anyways.

Frederick: NFA: The Beck, Limbaugh, Savage and Hannity shows are funded by Clear Channel.  Clear Channel also owns 850 radio stations nationwide.  Clear Channel is owned by Bain Capital (Yes Romney's company).  So a very small group of very wealth men control the message sent to 115 million American's every week.

Those wealthy men do not want their agendas tampered with by a Pope who is actually preaching the real message of the bible.  This Pope has shown by example that he cares for the sick and the poor.  He's said that trickle down economics is a fraud (which it is) and that the rich aren't following God's message.

These wealthy men are going to go toe to toe with a major religion to promote their agenda of creating an American Oligarchy.

The same type of oligarchy is in place for print and television media as well - a few control the many.  Most of that consolidation occurred last two decades.

Three Crooked Squirrels: As a lapsed Catholic and non-believer, I've been thinking that I kind of like this Pope. The fact that Rush is at odds with him only confirms my suspicion: He must not be half bad.


i'm openly pagan and even I like this Pope.  I don't agree with all his policies but...DAYUM does he got the prosperity gospel preachers and their minions in an uproar!  Francis is quite a thorny problem for the Republicans.  they can't simply dismiss him or his comments.  oh sure, the US evangelicals have never liked the Catholics but they need their support for the pro-life agenda.  so there's a limit on how far they can go with retaliation.  Not to mention that there is NOTHING the likes of Rush Limbaugh can do to threaten the Pope to bring him into line.  Even trying to lean on the Pope is a public relations nightmare for the Right wing.  They can't shut the guy up, they can't ignore him, and even when they disagree with him they have to be respectful of the Church or they risk a schism in the ranks.

Pope Francis is a smart guy.  He's found the one fracture point in the GOP that they can't do anything about and he just hammered a spike thru it with a sledgehammer.  I hope he gives it another whack!

Rush Limbaugh is in a rage at the latest social justice preachings of Pope Francis, which the radio voice of the American right described on Wednesday as "pure Marxism."

Duh.  Jesus Christ was a communist.

Seriously, does any "conservative christian" read the fkn Bible?   ANY OF THEM? EVER?
