    Default Confidant of Pope Francis condemns some ‘evangelical fundamentalists’

    A close confidant of*Pope Francis, writing Thursday in a Vatican-approved magazine, condemned the way some American evangelicals and their*Roman Catholic*supporters mix religion and politics, saying their worldview promotes division and hatred.

    The Rev. Antonio Spadaro, editor of the influential Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica, said a shared desire for political influence between “evangelical fundamentalists” and some Catholics has inspired an “ecumenism of conflict” that demonizes opponents and promotes a “theocratic type of state.

    Pretty hard not to diagram with what he is saying.

    Spadaro specifically criticized the far-right Catholic American media organization ChurchMilitant.com. Spadaro said the media outlet framed the presidential election as a “spiritual war” and Trump’s ascent to the presidency as “a divine election.”

    I was not aware of the above that is just some good old fashioned crazy there.

    If you find any of this, let us know.
    Until then, I'll have to stick to my belief that Paul actually meant what he wrote.


    Romans 13:1
    Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
    I think it is more about us trusting God than anything else.

    The Vatican may be the "government on the shoulder" as prophesied.

    Isaiah 9:6 (NASB)

    6 for a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
    And the government will rest on His shoulders;
    And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
