Francis Excited About Globalist Slogan

Francis qualified the slogan "Building Back Better" in a December 3 message for the “International Day of Persons with Disabilities” as "quite striking."

The slogan is contained in the Day's theme “Building Back Better: Toward a Disability-inclusive, Accessible and Sustainable post-COVID-19 World.”

It is often used in political propaganda (article’s picture), for instance by a UN Program, Joe Biden's 2020 campaign, a humanitarian program by US president Bill Clinton, and by the World Economic Forum (WeForum.org) famous for its Davos meetings where “The Great Reset” will be discussed in May.

The WeForum calls Francis an “agenda contributor.” An October 9 essay on WeForum.org acknowledged that Francis puts “his stamp on efforts to shape what's been termed a Great Reset of the global economy.”

Are Marxism and globalism heresies?
Ultraviolet
Since you asked, no. Heresy (from wiki) in the Catholic Church denotes the formal denial or doubt of a core doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church.

...such as denying the resurrection of the body, perhaps. A heretic might still believe all other core doctrines of the Church. Doesn't change the fact they're still heretics. Apostasy, is the rejection of ALL Catholic doctrine. Marxism is based on …More

...such as denying the resurrection of the body, perhaps. A heretic might still believe all other core doctrines of the Church. Doesn't change the fact they're still heretics. Apostasy, is the rejection of ALL Catholic doctrine. Marxism is based on atheism which denies the validity of all religions, including ours. Therefore Marxists are apostates.

Globalism isn't a heresy. It's a political ideology. Even then, it could be a good thing. A world under the dominion of the Catholic Church is something we should all pray and work towards. How Marxists choose to apply the concept of globalism, however, is despicable.

@Ultraviolet Thank you for clearing that up for me. It really would be a wonderful thing if the Catholic Church kind of globalism were to come about, I guess I never thought about that possibility.

So if Marxists are apostates, there is no way for me to be able to be both a Marxist and a Catholic? What if I still believe in Jesus and the Church and the Sacraments but reject the atheism part of …More

So if Marxists are apostates, there is no way for me to be able to be both a Marxist and a Catholic? What if I still believe in Jesus and the Church and the Sacraments but reject the atheism part of Marxism? Would I be a heretic then, instead of an apostate, since I wouldn't be rejecting ALL Catholic doctrine? Is there any way that such a Catholic as I just described could be considered a Marxist without ever having formally denied or doubted a core doctrine of the RCC?

Thank you.

You're very welcome, Cecilia.

"So if Marxists are apostates, there is no way for me to be able to be both a Marxist and a Catholic?"

Technically, no.

"What if I still believe in Jesus and the Church and the Sacraments but reject the atheism part of Marxism?"

seeks to accomplish.

"Would I be a heretic then, instead of an apostate, since I wouldn't be rejecting ALL Catholic doctrine?"

You wouldn't be a heretic or an apostate. Catholics have widely varying opinions on the best form of secular government and many favor Marxist ideologies.

"Is there any way that such a Catholic as I just described could be considered a Marxist without ever having formally denied or doubted a core doctrine of the RCC?"

Yes, as I said, through the teachings of of liberation theology.

The question I have is, why in God's Holy Name, would you want to?

Marxism has brought nothing but misery and suffering everywhere it's ever been implemented. If you want a picture of a "successful" Marxist government, look at Venezuela.

They're sitting on some of the largest oil reserves in all the Americas, essentially unlimited wealth ready to be pumped out of the ground any time they want. Ah, but they're Marxists and enlightened and believe -this time- Marxism will "work".

In the meantime, there are widespread shortages and Venezuelans are literally fleeing the country into the neighboring ones, starving immigrant refugees from what should be the most prosperous country in Latin America.

That's Marxism at its finest.

A Marxist globalist Pope endorses a Marxist globalist slogan. Who would have guessed?
Cecilia Lopez
But can't a Catholic be a Marxist or a globalist? Has the Church ever specifically condemned those as heretical? I know that communism has been condemned as erroneous and dangerous in Divini Redemptoris, and I assume that a Marxist is one who believes and promotes a particular brand of communism referred to as Marxism. So I am guessing that the pope is allowed to be a Marxist so long as its not …More

So I am guessing that the pope is allowed to be a Marxist so long as its not heresy? I'm probably missing something here. I'm sure it may exist, but I don't know of any Magisterial statement saying Marxism is heretical or an apostasy from the faith.

In an absolute sense, no, a Catholic can not be a Marxist because Marxists are atheists. However, so-called liberation theology supposedly reconciles Marxism's social ideology while side-stepping its atheism.

Thank you @Ultraviolet. I'm still having difficulty understanding here. So if, because of its atheism "a Catholic can not be a Marxist;" and liberation theology only "supposedly reconciles" Marxism by "side-stepping its atheism;" and if its an "over-simplification" to call Francis a marxist while at the same time "essentially correct" to do so...then I don't know what that even means.

It seems to grant a person an ability to label the pope a Marxist without having to commit to the consequences of what that would mean. By using terms like "supposedly" and "side-stepping" are you expressing doubt or disbelief that LT actually succeeds in authentically reconciling Marxism with Catholicism?

Is it even possible to be "essentially" be a marxist without ever falling into apostasy or heresy, without ever defecting from any doctrine of the faith? That's the real question for me.
Thanks.

It means the following. My comments presuppose the reader has a basic level of political-literacy. I call Pope Francis a Marxist instead of a Liberation Theologist because Marxist quicker and easier to write and I assume the reader already understands the technical distinction between the two.

Liberation Theology is esssentially Catholicized Marxism, a synthesis between our Catholic faith and Marxism's political ideals and methods of achieving them.

True Marxists are atheists. Karl Marx was an atheist. Liberation Theology seeks to "fix" that religious discrepancy for Catholics while still retaining practically everything else from Marxism.

This is why calling Pope Francis a Marxist is still essentially correct.
