Looks like El Rushbo is about to to get his clock cleaned again, this time by the Catholics for his blithering diatribe against the Pope. We'll be waiting with baited breath for his apology..IT just goes to show that Rush and his Rethug cronies are more interested in worshipping a system that provides for the rich at the expense of the poor...

Catholic Alliance Denounces Rush Limbaugh With A Petition Demanding An Apology
by Leslie Salzillo

Catholics In Alliance:
"We are disturbed by Rush Limbaugh's incendiary comments last Wednesday, November 27th about Pope Francis and are joining together with Catholics and other allies throughout the nation to support the Holy Father. To call the Francis a proponent of "pure marxism" is both mean spirited and naive. Francis's critique of unrestrained capitalism is in line with the Church's social teaching. His particular criticism of "trickle down economics" strengthens what Church authorities have said for decades: any economic system which deprives the poor of their dignity has no place within a just society.

Contrary to what Mr. Limbaugh suggests, the Catholic Church isn't built on money, but on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ.

We call on Mr. Limbaugh to apologize and retract his remarks. We urge other Church organizations and leaders--both ordained and lay--to also condemn Mr. Limbaugh's comments.

We proudly stand with Pope Francis as he provides prophetic leadership for the Catholic Church and the entire world."

He calls me Mammy and I am white. I think he has gotten kicked off of Topix again. S--T happens. He is really a drama queen rather than anything else. It is just a game to stir things up or else he gets bored.

If Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin don’t like the pope, they won’t care much for Jesus


By Reza Aslan

November 28 at 8:54 am
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-faith/...

Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin are starting to sour on the new pope.

In response to Pope Francis’ first Apostolic Exhortation, in which the pontiff denounced “trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world,” these two paragons of the far right – both of whom regularly invoke the teachings of Jesus to bolster their own political views – have suddenly turned their backs on the man whose actual job description is to speak for Jesus.

....
Self-styled “defenders of Christianity,” like Palin and Limbaugh, peddle a profoundly unhistorical view of Jesus. Indeed, if you listened to those on the far right you would think that all Jesus ever spoke about was guns and gays.

But even many modern Christians who reject the far right’s perception of Jesus tend to hold an inaccurate picture of the historical Jesus, viewing him as some kind of celestial spirit with no concern for the cares of this world – a curious assertion about a man who not only lived in one of the most politically charged periods in Israel’s history, but who claimed to be the promised messiah sent to liberate the Jews from foreign occupation.

This popular view of Jesus, which I challenge in my book, has dominated Christianity ever since the days of the Holy Roman Empire. It is not difficult to see why. After all, if you think of Jesus as an apolitical, pacifistic preacher of good works whose only interest was in the world to come, then you can domesticate Jesus’ radical teachings and more easily accommodate him to your own political or economic agenda.

The truth is that Jesus’ teachings were so revolutionary that were he to preach today what he preached 2,000 years ago, many of the same preachers and politicians who claim to promote his values would be the first to call for him to be silenced.

Jesus did not preach income equality between the rich and the poor. He preached the complete reversal of the social order, wherein the rich and the poor would switch places.

“Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are hungry, for you shall be fed. Blessed are you who mourn, for you shall soon be laughing”(Luke 6:20–21).

These abiding words of the Beatitudes are often remembered as a promise of vindication for the poor and the dispossessed. But that is because few bother reading the verses that follow.

As long as I am luny to you leftists, I am on the correct track.
If they don't like the pope, they don't care much for Jesus. pope=Jesus, or Jesus=pope?
News flash, NEWS FLASH:JESUS died on the cross, NOT the pope. Jesus ain't the pope, pope is not Jesus.
pope does not speak for Jesus unless pope is speaking the written oracles of GOD.
If you or I speak aloud, How blessed are you poor! for the kingdom of God is yours. How blessed are you who are hungry! for they shall be filled. How blessed are you who are crying now! for you will laugh. Luke 6:20-21, you are speaking for Jesus.

I am not speaking for or against Limbaugh, Palin nor Francis. They are flesh like everyone else.
I love your words promised messiah sent to liberate the Jews from foreign occupation. Jesus came to liberate from sin any who wanted liberated from sin.
Render unto Caesar's what is Caesar and render unto God what is God's doesn't sound like liberation from Roman occupation to me. For God so loved the world he gave His first born son that whosoever should believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

And as long as the Pope is being chastised and/or vilified by the likes of fatboy Rush Limbaugh, then he will join the ranks of other true humanitarians. If Rush doesn't like you, then you must be a decent human being !!!!

Like the worldwide known man sitting in Vatican City with ambassadors, legates and representatives worldwide is really going to be hurt by the fatboy as you call him. get a gripe. The Kremlin, Golden Palace, white house and every capital and major city of every country will receive Francis' envoys and Rush is going to hurt him.
It is people such as yourself who has blown up Rush's influence.
If Rush doesn't like the president of Ukraine or Prime Minister of Viet Nam, they must be a good person.
You, Scheherazade, are good advertisement for people to begin listening to Rush for the simple reason of the free advertising you give him on Columbus topix.
All satan has to do is get Rush to like him and he must be a good person. Good thinking there, ace!

Oh, my goodness...

A source familiar with the inner workings of the Vatican told Breitbart News on Monday that Pope Francis is likely to offer a "clarification" of his comments on economics contained in his apostolic exhortation released on November 24, Evangelii Guadium (in English, "The Joy of the Gospel"). Though the timing of such a "clarification" is uncertain, it is likely to come in the form of a speech to a group rather than in a formal papal document.

The source told Breitbart News that key figures at the Vatican are already discussing the problems caused by the document's confused and inconsistent forays into economic policy. As Breitbart News has reported, the use of language consistent with Latin American "liberation theology" in that document has had a significant impact on the political dialogue in the United States over the past ten days.

The left has grabbed several passages from the document and described them as a rejection of free market economics and an endorsement of the statist redistributive policies of the Obama administration. Some on the left have used the Pope's word as a justification for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Among prominent conservatives, Rush Limbaugh has criticized the Pope for appearing to embrace "liberation theology." Many conservatives are wondering why the pope decided to venture beyond the realm of the Gospel into the arena of political and economic theory in the first place.

Defenders of the Pope have pointed out that economics, though it received almost all of the press coverage, was a small part of the document, most of which focused on a new call to evangelization. They portray him not as a "liberation theologist," but a rather as more of a "right wing Peronist" from Argentina whose economic views have been formed by a life time spent in a country run by crony-capitalists, dictators, and oligarchs.

The Pope, they maintain, has little familiarity with the type of free market economics that has characterized the American economy for centuries. That lack of familiarity, combined with his "unfiltered" approach to communication and some problems with translation in the document, have all combined to create significant misunderstandings of the Pope's views.

There is some evidence that language may be an issue. Though Pope Francis spent three months in Ireland in the 1980s to learn English, sources tell Breitbart News that he has minimal fluency in English.

The original version of Evangelii Guadium was apparently written in Spanish, then translated into English by someone at the Vatican. There have been some reports that the translation took the Pope's original language and mistranslated parts of it to give a more "liberation theology" friendly feel to the document.
