Is it a sin to tell Pope Francis to shut up?

I had intended to keep a very low Internet profile during Lent, but once more the Pope has opened his mouth and my head has exploded. 

If I could tell Pope Francis one thing, it would be to please, please, please "shut up".  The more he speaks (interviews, off the cuff remarks etc) the more damage is done. 

According to the delusions of our current progressive socialist-leaning global warming guru pope there is a new mortal sin that defines who is and who is not a Christian. 

Wall builders.

Wall builders are not Christians.  

(CNN)Thrusting himself into the combative 2016 presidential campaign, Pope Francis said Thursday that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump "is not Christian" if he calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants and pledges to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.
The Pope, who was traveling back to Rome from Mexico, where he urged the United States to address the "humanitarian crisis" on its southern border, declined to say whether American Catholics should vote for Trump.
But Francis left little doubt where he stood on the polarizing issue of immigration reform.
"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel," the Pope told journalists.
**note: the politician in question here has never said "only" build a wall, so the pope is either purposely being deceptive or clueless, your guess is as good as anybody else's guess.**

Unless of course you're the pope sitting inside the Vatican walls. 
People waiting outside Vatican Wall.

There is NOTHING in the Bible that says building a wall to protect citizens and nations from terrorists, illegals, drugs or anything else makes a person unChristian.  If wall builders are not Christians then why so many convent and monastery and Vatican walls??  

I am once again DISGUSTED by this pope.  We've got people running for president who are supporting abortion, birth control and the right to die "with dignity" (euthanasia) and the pope says NOTHING. 

We have one person running for president who wants to build a border NOT to keep immigrants out, but to keep ILLEGAL immigrants out (big difference), to allow people to come into the country legally and Pope Francis has just decided to declare to the world that such a person is NOT a Christian. 

I have to honestly Pope Francis a Catholic? I know I'm not the first to ask that question.  It's something many Catholics are thinking and have been thinking.  How could we not?  We've seen this pope wash Muslim women's feet on Holy Thursday... we've read horrendous interviews from this pope saying things like the most pressing evils facing the Church today are "jobless youth and lonely elderly"- not abortion, not euthanasia, not selling baby parts, not gay unions...nope, "jobless youth and lonely elderly".  In the same interview he declared God wasn't Catholic- as if Jesus Christ himself hadn't founded the Catholic Church! 

And now we have the pope declaring that people who build walls for protection are not Christians.

Are those who built those walls around the Vatican and Catholic convents/monasteries now deemed to be non Christians because they wished to protect what was held inside those walls? Will Pope Francis now order all those walls be taken down? 

This really shouldn't surprise anyone.  This pope is all about removing protective barriers and leaving the innocent unprotected. 

Christ in the Eucharist at Mass was once protected by His priests from blasphemy and sacrilege... not so with Pope Francis.  Lutheran's are given the Eucharist at Mass by Catholic priests at the Vatican and Pope Francis shuts up.  But a non-Catholic running for President in the United States says he's going to build a wall to protect the United States and Pope Francis declares to the world that such a man is not a Christian. 

This pope has a warped mind and twisted spirituality that is not in line with the Catholic Faith.  He's concerned more with global warming and other nations political candidates than he is with actual Catholics and Catholic teaching and worse of all he has little regard for saving souls! 

Where is the pope on these issues?  What does he say and do when faced with the very real mortal sin issues facing the world today?

Catholic clergy supporting the gay agenda... "who am I to judge?". 

Catholic politicians supporting gay marriage, euthanasia, birth control, abortion, selling baby parts, Catholic clergy marching for women priests and supporting the gay agenda...crickets from this pope.

When is the rest of the Catholic world (I know there are many who have been speaking out for years, God bless you) going to open their eyes and speak out that WE HAVE A POPE PROBLEM

It saddens me greatly to write this, especially during Lent, but I feel overwhelmed to speak out against this pope (again). 

Church history shows we've had good popes, we've had great popes and we've had bad popes.  We've got a bad pope right now folks, there is no denying it.  This pope is more concerned with worldly issues than with saving souls.  

The world so desperately needs a pope who will continually give homilies, interviews and off the cuff remarks about mortal sin and eternal damnation.  We need a pope who will guide the people away from sin, not one who confuses people with "who am I to judge" statements that leave progressives thinking they are right to support gay marriage.  Chaos and confusion are not of God.  

Pray for him- pray many rosaries to Our Lady for help, pray to God that this pope either change drastically or that we are not burdened with him for long. The damage he is causing is phenomenal.  Whoever the next pope is he will have a tremendous job cleaning up after this disastrous papacy.

While the evil in this world is currently celebrating, the Catholics in the world should be weeping greatly over the things this pope says, does and allows.

All that said (right or wrong), if I can't tell the pope to please shut up already, I can't help but wonder if it would be a sin for me to pray that as John the Baptist's father was struck mute, so be it with our current pope?

God please save us from Pope Francis! 

In Christ,

...And to anyone who thinks I've been too harsh in my views and opinions of this pope well... who are you to judge?  See the danger to souls in that statement now? 

Sources (quotes/photos):


  1. He is making a total fool out of himself now. It's incredibly embarrassing. The Vatican is surrounded by a massive, 13-foot think 30-foot high WALL, the Leonine Wall as I recall. Is Francis going to tear it down now?? Is he still a Christian while he lets it stand? Yes, he needs to talk less. I also have serious reservations about whether he really holds the Catholic faith.

  2. Pope Francis is a loose communist cannon.

  3. I hope this won't annoy you even more, or make whatever is left of your head explode again, but Pope Francis' comments are not supported by the Bible at all. Time and again the Israelites are exhorted by the prophets to "build up the walls of Jerusalem." Building the walls of Jerusalem is seen as a holy endeavor to restore the city and temple to its former greatness again and again in the Bible. There are too many examples to site but here's one:

    "May it please you to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem." Psalm 51:18

  4. That is quite an outlandish judgemental statement made by our "who am I to judge" pope. He's been duped by the Mexican drug cartels. I too wish he would remove his foot from his mouth and permanently close it.

  5. He isn't bad or evil, he's an idiot enthralled by the international attention accorded his office. To quote Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon!"

  6. Notice that he's not calling for illegal immigration to Argentina.

  7. Little P, pope Francis is an Anti-Pope...period. He has all the markings. If I am wrong I will pay for this comment. But what I see in the Church is 1/3 good=true religious and 2/3 bad=evil religious. It is shameful and sinful.

    On your prayer questions. What I pray when dealing with someone evil, misguided or lost is a simple prayer that removes from me the sin of judgement, it is simply stated, I pray "Thy Will be done". This helps me to give it to God, and it no longer needs to eat away at me.

    Trust me this works, I have used it for decades and I am often surprised by the results and speed of the results it can bring. If it is God's will that Francis be mute then so be it, perhaps he is intended to separate the chafe from the wheat...God can use anyone to his purpose. I do not try to discern his intended role. That does not mean I do not speak out against what he says or promotes, I do.

    And yes it is increasingly exhausting, though fortunately in America not yet deadly.

  8. Couldn't agree with you more. I believe it was St. John Eudes who said, "When God wants to punish his people he sends them bad shepherds." The blood of over 50,000,000 unborn infants cries to heaven. this nation deserves any punishment God sends.
    As for your question about the Pope, the question is No. Bears still do it in the woods, but the Pope is no longer Catholic.

  9. There's a reason why there is the 2/3rd estimate of priests/religious doing "bad" anti-Catholic things. The roots are there to pull out, but many still insist that it's just a bad interpretation of something wholly fantastic.

    And yes, "others", have been attempting to wake people up for quite a long time. Those others have been called all manner of bad things by fellow Catholics, on this blog and on another wherein supposedly not scandalizing the sheep is to leave them in the dark to believe that the "Shepherd" is not responsible. And not just Francis. Finally, this week, the one who would be Pope has spoken, releasing the truth which was previously verboten. As if not saying Voldemort would mean he wasn't actually there.

    We should, in truth, give thanks for the proverbial horns and tail being openly sported today The message: NOT CATHOLIC. It is a blessing to recognize evil.

    Pray for the Pope. He needs it. So too do we. Wake up. And when others are wrongly calumniated for taking necessary action when action was/is required, don't be too quick to judge because we now have a very visible sign of what we're fighting. And it didn't just sprout from under an Argentinian tobacco leaf!

  10. I just found this article which does a great job of explaining when it is in fact OK to tell the Pope to, well Shut Up!

    Hope you find it useful.

  11. Thank you. I put these exact words in a search engine today and your blog came up. I wish someone would just stick a sock in his mouth. I was raised protestant, but was drawn to the Catholic church. This pope is driving me away. He makes me ashamed of the church. I pray about this every day and I pray for him...I don't think he is Catholic...and while I cannot know the mind of God...I think he may wonder himself.


This is a Catholic blog, please keep your comments respectful to my Faith even when you disagree.
