This Letter Is Why Pope Francis Is Approaching Apostasy-Commies Love Him

Mandeville, LA – I have hundreds of notes from this particular letter writer, whom I never correspond with until today. His complaints against what he hears on my radio show included, but aren’t limited to:

• The Declaration incorporated the earth under Congress •The Constitution Incorporated the universe to Congress •The 14th Amendment was sent by Lucifer to consecrate every heresy & sin imagined Under Congress •John Taylor was a kindergarten dropout, flunky loser and so was his buddy Jefferson •The second amendment is valid on Hoth, Romulus and The StarGate Planet because (see 14th Amendment)I think you get the picture.

Now today I learn that I am George McGovern’s bastard love-child but in possession of a brain that cannot conceive of the wonder of Laurence Krauss’s “something=nothing and nothing=-EVERYTHING” theory. I’ve highlighted the parts that make Pope Francis’s recent statements dangerous: the Enemy LOVES them. (by enemy I mean those doing the bidding of He, the dark prince)

It is worth noting to my Libertarian friends that the great Thomas E Woods has written extensively about the “persecution & trial” of Galileo. His comments might surprise you.

I had to drive my wife down to the National Cathedral this morning for the Ben Bradlees funeral, so on the way back I caught the interview about the movie. I thought you were getting played. There is no political left trying to halt this movie, that was clearly a ploy on the part of thee movie producers to try to get some tickets sold on the basis that the left hates their movie. For the most part nobody on the left gives a whit about a movie that is this ridiculous and which has been denounced both by Krauss and by Kate Mulgrew, who narrated the trailer.In fact articles about this movie have been published in a host of liberal publications including NPR and SLATE, among many others. So there no issue here of intellectual freedom, none at all. Mike, you have a lot of good instincts, your liberal views on American power abroad, and on American Exceptionalism are refreshing. You are indeed a disciple of George McGovern when it comes to American foreign policy and I admire the courage you gave to express it. But then you come up with something like this, when the Pope himself this week made such enlightened comments about how to synch science and religion, comments that make so much sense to all faiths. He is a great great Pope. Hard to believe you might be a person who would want to put Galileo in prison, then complain about intellectual freedom?

I will briefly address the absurdity of the Galileo comment by saying that the writer is historically ignorant. Galileo stayed at the Vatican as the Pope’s guest during his brief Inquisition. He was never in a cell, never locked away unless you consider this a prison:

Here is the account of Galileo’s “imprisonment” from Catholic Education .com which includes contemporary,  secular accounts.

Contrary to popular accounts, Galileo did not abjure the theory under threat of torture. Both he and the Inquisitors knew that the threat of torture was pure formality. Galileo was, in fact, treated with great consideration. Against all precedent, he was housed with a personal valet in a luxurious apartment overlooking the Vatican gardens. As for the trial itself, given the evidence and the apparent injunction of 1616, it was by the standards of 17th century Europe extremely fair. The historian Giorgio de Santillana, who is not disposed toward the Church’s side, writes that “we must, if anything, admire the cautiousness and legal scruples of the Roman authorities” in a period when thousands of “witches” and other religous deviants were subjected to juridical murder in northern Europe and New England.

The Church also never excommunicated Galileo and ultimately restored his work on Copernicus to the Settele.

Galileo’s condemnation was certainly unjust, but in no way impugns the infallibility of Catholic dogma. Heliocentricism was never declared a heresy by either ex cathedra pronouncement or an ecumenical council. And as the Pontifical Commission points out, the sentence of 1633 was not irreformable. Galileo’s works were eventually removed from the Index and in 1822, at the behest of Pius VII, the Holy Office granted an imprimatur to the work of Canon Settele, in which Copernicanism was presented as a physical fact and no longer as an hypothesis.

If men like our letter writer are cheering Pope Francis while munching Pope popcorn while reclining in their African tusk trimmed leather high-backs, it is NOT because he is saving souls and vanquishing evil, it is because he is opening the door to that act’s anathema. Pray, gentlemen, to Our Blessed Mother for Francis and for intercession if needed.

    Hey Mike…you probably don’t remember me but I called you a few years ago to ask how the people in a state could starve the Fed.. I took a bus to DC in a protest and made them play your DVD.

      Mike and Andrew are why I keep 5 sirius radios. I love that Mike spends a portion of his time speaking about Virtue and Honor. To Douglas B Adams: yes.

      Do you have an actual comment, “Bart” or is seeing yourself laughing at your own joke the point? With such riveting, public intellect, no wonder the Jesuits joined monasteries to educate themselves.

        Sorry this is posted below as well, I thought I was replying to you the first time.

        Don’t get me wrong Mike, I like you and your opinions very much, and listen to you all the time. References from an obviously bias site should be taken for what they are worth, biased. I did not attack you or your personal point, I thought my point was obvious but i guess not. Taking shots at my intellect is uncalled for, and why is my name is in quotation marks? Is a hair trigger temper what they teach in monasteries? Cheers “Bart”
