Whether it is relentlessly trumpeting the cause of climate change, or scolding an American presidential candidate for not being a true Christian, or claiming the current "migrant crisis" is actually an "Arab invasion" that must be passively accepted as a social fact by "grandmother" Europe so she can become a "young mother" again in order to act as some kind of mystical unifying force that will make the world a better place through increased multiculturalism, Pope Francis has repeatedly proven, to me at least, that he is not to be taken seriously.
As I admitted earlier, I am a mediocre Catholic, so I am not terribly bothered by this poor excuse for a Pope. Nonetheless, it saddens me that in the West during times like these, times that seem to almost beg for a clear, strong, and true voice of spiritual guidance, all the Church can offer is this cassocked charlatan whose seemingly benign and uplifting rhetoric has done little more than sow the seeds of insidious destruction. In a phrase, there is no hope with this Pope. None at all.
