Is the Pope Catholic or Too Political?
June 6, 2017
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Has Pope Francis changed role of the papacy to be more political than religious? Does this hurt devout Catholics? According to today's guest, George Neumayr, the answer is a worrisome "Yes." And, as a Catholic who loves the church, he wrote his new book, The Political Pope: How Pope Francis Is Delighting the Liberal Left and Abandoning Conservatives, "to awaken the church to the danger. This book is "the untold story of the left's efforts to politicize the Vatican and the battle to stop it-before the Catholic Church as we know it is destroyed." Pope Francis is "the first pope to approve of adultery, flirt with proposals to bless gay marriages and cohabitation, tell atheists not to convert, tell Catholics to not breed 'like rabbits'," and more. He even praises the Koran and encourages immigration, which is ironic since terrorists envision him as their prize target. Whatever your religious preference, you'll find this episode controversial and intriguing, if not extremely worrisome.
