bergoglio puts on sad clown face at Korean abortion cemetery
“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that.”
I'm sure you remember the above infamous quote on abortion from bergoglio which came very early in his papacy. If you don't remember don't worry because the mainstream press will remind you at every occasion. They got their one papal quote on abortion and from now on until bergoglio joins ratzinger in retirement anything else bergoglio says or does regarding abortion is just neatly ignored. But this quote will be repeated endlessly.
Pro-life Catholics were horrified by this statement. Every time they turn around the pro-abortion forces throw this quote in their faces. For example there was this article at the time:
"Pope Francis: Church's 'obsession' with gays, abortion and contraception means it risks 'falling like a house of cards' "
bergoglio's latest cheap publicity stunt
So when bergoglio stands in front of an abortion cemetery in Korea the Catholic media gets stirred up in a frenzy and says "see bergoglio really does care about abortion".
Meanwhile the mainstream press mostly ignores this latest publicity stunt because it doesn't fit their agenda.
When the mainstream press does cover it the article title looks something like this:
"Pope Francis makes strong, silent statement on abortion"
The same article reminds us in the first sentence:
"Pope Francis has generally avoided hot-button "culture war" issues like abortion, arguing that the church's doctrine on the sanctity of life is well-known and that he'd rather emphasize other aspects of church teaching."
.... just in case you forgot since the last time they reminded you....
So lets think about this.... bergoglio stands there in front of an abortion cemetery while the Korean press cameras are clicking at a furious pace while putting on his sad clown face... you know the one.... and makes a statement saying.... NOTHING!
How are we to interpret his sad clown face? Is the pope a mime? Is Marcel Marceau now the pope?
Of course pro-life Catholics will see the picture and interpret it in a very sympathetic way and conclude that bergoglio is really very pro-life and anti-abortion.... but did he really say that?
How does the average liberal that is "pro-choice" interpret this.... ?
Well most of the "pro-choice" crowd thinks abortion is sad.... it's a slightly sad but necessary "choice".... is that what this picture of the pope is saying?
Maybe we should have a caption contest? Make a balloon and fill in what bergoglio is thinking.
Of course if bergoglio would have actually made a statement.... then we wouldn't have to guess what he was thinking behind his sad clown face...
And what about contraception? What did sad clown face bergoglio say about contraception during his Korean stop on his endless world rock tour?
A quick Google search reveals that he said... NOTHING! Not a thing!
Oh, really? Isn't that odd? Not even a photo-op in front of a pile of discarded condoms making a sad clown face?
So let's think about that....
Korea is facing a crisis because of a policy that was pushed on it by the pro-abortion "family planning" forces to reduce its "over-population". The birth rate is low and the population is aging....
Conclusion.... it's pretty safe politically in Korea to make an anti-abortion statement.... especially a sad clown face....
What about contraception? How would an anti-contraception statement be received politically in Korea?
My guess is that Koreans would not be too happy about the pope "intruding into their bedrooms"....
Conclusion... bergoglio is only as pro-life as the average "pro-choice" liberal....
What lessons have we learned here?
- bergoglio is a media craving maniac
- bergoglio is only interested in pro-life issues when it suits his agenda
- bergoglio does not consistently present Catholic teaching to the faithful
.... but you already knew all that by this time. More of the same from bergoglio.... on to the synod on the family to further undermine Catholic doctrine....
