Pope Francis is visiting the White House next week, where President Obama will have some carefully orchestrated guests awaiting:
· Retired Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, who came out as openly gay in 2003, divorced his wife of 14 years, married his homosexual partner, and then divorced him as well in 2014 (apparently, he’s a semi-regular at the White House)
· Mateo Williamson, former co-chairman of the Transgender Caucus for Dignity USA, a cross-dressing woman who identifies herself as a gay man because she’s still attracted to men, not women
· Sister Simone, a pro-abortion nun who fought to keep the right to kill unborn babies in the Affordable Care Act
· At least two Catholic gay activists
Now, Francis might be the most liberal modern pope we’ve seen. He’s definitely a socialist, talking about redistributing wealth and attacking capitalism as if our hope is in government instead of God. And yes, he upholds the global warming theory and pushes for peace like a pacifist who doesn’t understand reality.
Personally, I don’t like the man. I think he’s arrogant and foolish and downright unchristian.
However, Pope Francis is still the elected representative of the Catholic Church, a body of people that overall disagrees with homosexuality, transgenderism and abortion on religious grounds. And he himself has still come out in support of traditional marriage, at least in the past.
So welcoming him to the White House with a group of people who blatantly stand against what the Catholic Church believes is nothing short of bitchy, indicating once again that President Obama has the attitude of a spoiled-brat of a 17-year-old who thinks he can get away with anything to anyone because he matters and they don’t.
If Obama disagrees that much with Pope Francis and his constituents’ belief system, then he shouldn’t invite any of them over in the first place. Or he should sit down one on one for an honest debate. That would be the mature thing to do.
But maturity isn’t in his playbook. Bitchy, on the other hand… That’s what he does best.
