Pope Francis and President Obama have much in common, largely because the Pope is a compassionate and generous human being.

The Pope TELLS people to be generous, but there is no mention of him actually BEING GENEROUS.

As leader of the STATE of Vatican City, he has NOT put into place any welfare programs to actually help the poor.(also, no free phones or food stamps)

But he IS on record for TELLING others to be generous.

The pope's words can influence others. That's a lot more than the usual pope pourri.

Yep.

That do what I say, not what I do stuff, because I AM the POPE.

What you think of this pope is irrelevant to me. His primary purpose is to speak out against injustice. Unlike his predecessors, that is what he is doing. He can be the instrument of revolutionary positive change.

I am not religious, and I don't consider anyone holy. I assess Pope Francis as a human being, a man of compassion and humility. Within the constraints of Catholic dogma, he is reflecting the kind of Christianity that his god intended.

It's his job to jet around and he needs unending security arrangements, but by the standards of any world figure the current Pope appears to live quite a simple life in material terms - in terms of his residence, his residential staffers, his clothes, even his car (his car, not the Popemobiles, of course.)

Or just another photo-op. Watch for Speaker Nancy and a rush upon the Holy See.

Is it the separation of state from church, or the separation of church from state?

He doesn't believe in gay marriage and thinks Obama is an idiot for not helping the Syrian refugees and allowing isis to slaughter Christians.

Unlike Obama who stays in multi million dollar beachfront mansions in Hawaii and the Hamptons, flies his pet mutt Bo on separate gas guzzling private jets, throws extravagant late night parties at the WH for his rapper friends, etc...

Nice to learn that you hate and mistrust Donald Turnip because he's always braying about his net worth and how he lives, but of course President Obama is not a pastor. We were discussing a religious figure, the Pope, and to what extent he embodies the spirit of the Gospels, which are quite clear about concentrated wealth, but you can't keep anything straight due to your reflexive, anti rational hate.

I think the Obamas are not terribly wealthy by the standards of Senators and Chief Executives, their peers. Of course they'll be able to be rich after office from the usual book and lecture and consulting deals if they want to be.

They may share the same instinct for politics, beyond the 'selfie' evidence will reveal the nature of the chairs.

I was pointing out the sheer emptiness of your fake and uninformed and racist complaint that, in essence, the Obama's vacation in style on Nantucket and not in Appalachia or Watts.

I'm not a fan of Donald Turnip. I want him to win the nomination because he'd be as weak as your rhetorical skills are.

They don't need to have welfare or programs at the Vatican City. Everyone is employed. The pope happens to be the largest donator to world hunger by 100 of millions of dollars. All monies donated to the Catholic Church are his. Catholic Churches give more money nation wide than any other organization. Read up on this... You know before assuming you know facts.

The Pope has made -no- such statement.
Only an idiot would think Obamas an idiot.
Thanks for clarifying yourself.
An idiot Faux 'news' host did call the Pope 'the most dangerous person on the planet' however...
