We have had many bad popes in the Catholic Church’s 2000 year history. Sadly this one looks like he will end up in that group. It is so hard to defend him and I guess only history will reveal his true motives.

Catholics are bound to pray for the pope daily. This does NOT mean we have to agree or follow him when he speaks his opinions in matters that are not doctrines of the Catholic Church (like his global warming encyclical or misguided comments such as the ones posted above).

Why do non catholics speak on Catholic matters which they do not understand??? Get yourself a copy of the Cstechism of the Catholic Church and a copy of the Didache history of the Catholic Church – I beg you – before you speak.

Hold on non catholic. Mother Teresa is the direct consequence of a person who truly lives out everything the Catholic Church teaches. Point 3: homosexual deviants who infiltrated the Catholic Church from the 1950s onward are responsible for the sex abuse. These men and women snd/or their henchmen are still in the Church in many areas. Read Bella Dodd’s School of Darkness for the details. BTW Protestant denominations are littered with sex abuse cases. Where do I begin with your Protestant hangups and misconceptions about the Catholic Church that you Protest-ants love to spew about the One True Holy and Apostolic Catholic Church that Christ (not martin luther or calvin) founded. You may want to read the Didache books on the History of the Catholic Church for the actual truth and not the fabricated lies that are rampant within the thousands of Protestant protesting denominations. My prayer is that YOU will come back to the Catholic Church.

Agreed. As a solid Catholic, I cringe whenever he opens his mouth.

$230 to pay for an abortion would not ‘bankrupt’ anyone you skanky murderer.
One would wonder why her parents, who brought her for the abortion to kill their grandchild, didn’t put her on birth control after the procedure to stop her from the need to kill their second grandchild. Bad parenting is exactly what is wrong in America!
That is one of the problems I have with the modern liberal. They have no responsibility to even a truth so relevant to the heart of an argument.
Principles and character matter.....I keep telling my children this as the world pressures me to abandon mine for the "right" reasons.
 June 28, 2016 at 12:07pm
No, this ‘argument’ puts one in the crazy mindset of a liberal who uses worst case scenarios or incredibly rare events to keep abortion on the books in Americs. Do not let them detract you from the truth of what abortion is – the deliberate murder of an innocent unborn child.
@two: that may very well be true, but respectfully, you didn't answer the question. As rare a situation as it may be, at what point do you no longer force ĺby way of government, Dr. Etc) a woman to keep her child alive?
A good parent wouldn't have to be "forced" to keep their child alive, they would do whatever it took to ensure it.

If you are running on a path with victory as your goal, you don’t burn the bridges along the way. That is exactly what Mr. Trump has done and now he is scrambling to rebuild these bridges with zip ties and duck tape. In particular he has burned the pro life, authentic Christian conservative bridge folks who are not buying his sudden pro life shift, the principled conservative voters bridge (those who are not willing to vote for a vulgar mouthed, man child, hot tempered dirty fighter), the respectable female bridge (those who have no use for an unapoligetically lustful man with an unapologetically nude model wife). Trump is no different than hillsry and has paved the road for clinton’s victory with gold. God help us.
"now he is scrambling to rebuild these bridges "
Me no think so. Seriously, it may look like he's trying to rebuild them, but I don't think that's his intention. After the convention he won't care one way or the other which bridge he's burnt. Advancing the GOP was never one of his goals.

If there is any light in this tunnel, it is that we won’t see anymore Trump trolls on the Blaze trashing Cruz supporters. Now what will they do with all their free time?
 May 3, 2016 at 10:39pm
Well done, Fox News, well done. You sold out Americas soul for ratings and we will not forget.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:33pm
God will not be mocked, liberty556 and clearly you don’t understand what Christianity is about. We will NOT stop praying and fasting for the grave sins committed in America and for God to give us the Divine Mercy we need, and not the terrible justice we deserve. We prayed for a man of substance and fear of the Lord to run for president, and we got it in Ted Cruz. Only the Progressives in America rejected him and empowered a godless man to dominate the media (especially Fox News who should have known better) and infected the ignorant masses with propaganda (particularly from Fox News) that they ate up. And, just because we Christians lost the battle we fought hard for, doesn’t mean we lost the war. God will use all of our sacrifices in the designs of Divine Providence which we, in this moment are not privileged to know.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:21pm
God will not be mocked, Release-the-kraken. Prayer and fasting is never wasted, and God will use the sacrifices we made for America for a greater good. Only He sees the big picture and what lies ahead. We, for our part, will continue to pray and fast and sit back and let Him steer this ship and trust in His Divine Providence. We may have lost the battle, but we have not lost the war and are assured of the final victory, which is written in the last book of the bible. Tomorrow we will dry our tears, pick up our chins, continue to amend our lives and thank God for giving us a solid candidate in Ted Cruz and move on confident that God is with us, regardless of the outcome of this election.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:13pm
I know the feeling. I really had great hope that America would come to it’s senses before it was too late, and now I just cannot believe that this country just threw the election away.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:04pm
Why would anyone have supported that ticket? The two are polar opposites and if Cruz took that position, his supporters would have bailed on him.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:02pm
Well said, Bert.
 May 3, 2016 at 10:01pm
I was thinking the same thing. I cannot imagine that it will get any better in four years with the growing celebrity-driven, shallow American population that exists; even if America does survive the duration of the next presidency.
 May 3, 2016 at 9:57pm
Bingo. America lost her soul thanks to the likes of Fox News who sold us out for ratings. God have mercy on us.
