This cartoon has so much exploitable potential, particularly relating to the ongoing abuse scandal. Less said the better, eh? ;-)

May God forgive me for noticing that. :D

"The declared enemies of God and His Church, heretics and schismatics, must be criticized as much as possible, as long as truth is not denied. It is a work of charity to shout: 'Here is the wolf!' when it enters the flock or anywhere else." - St. Francis de Sales

@charisma For reporting the truth?? Please... It's Francis who is shameful and dishonorable.

"It is better that the truth be known than that scandal be covered up."

This is shameful, dishonorable of GTV.
I do protest about depicting a pope like this.
Is Gloria still a Catholic media website?

This behavious in front of Sudanese war politicians (Incredible video, Pope Francis kneeling and kissing feet) is shamful, dishonorable of Pope Francis.

@Eva , regardless your personal opinion, he is the Pope. A Catholic person should have respect for the Pope.
Not because of his behaviour, but because of his rank - head of the Catholic Church.

"If a future pope teaches anything contrary to the Catholic Faith, do not follow him."

"The greatest obstacle in the apostolate of the Church is the timidity or rather the cowardice of the faithful."

Dear Eva,

Pope Francis is continually virtue signaling as in this case of kissing the Negroes shoes. It goes something like this: ‘Does everyone see how humble I am? I am the most humble man on the planet. In fact, I am probably the most humble man who ever lived.”

He rails publicly against ‘walls’ yet he is protected by one.

Dear Eva,

Pope Francis is continually virtue signaling as in this case of kissing the Negroes shoes. It goes something like this: ‘Does everyone see how humble I am? I am the most humble man on the planet. In fact, I am probably the most humble man who ever lived.”

He rails publicly against ‘walls’ yet he is protected by one.

Pope Francis’ repeated attacks on capitalism can be fiery yet the pope brushes aside how capitalism lifts so many of the world’s people out of poverty. As the renowned U. of C. economist Milton Friedman noted: “The only cases in which the masses have escaped (grinding poverty), the only cases in recorded history, are where they have had capitalism and largely free trade. If you want to know where the masses are worse off, worst off, it’s exactly in the kinds of societies that depart from that.”
-------------------------------------------

What has Francis done to change any of the following: Homos running rampant in the Church while attendance plummets cara.georgetown.edu/frequently-requ…, as it did in other denominations. In the US, 55% of Catholics went to mass regularly in 1965; by 2000, only 22% did. In 1965, 1.3m Catholic babies were baptized in the US; in 2016, just 670,000. Whether this was cause or correlation remains fiercely disputed. Conservatives blamed it on the abandonment of eternal truths and traditional practices; progressives like Francis feel the church had not changed far or fast enough.
--------------------------------------

Does our faith absolutely center on Jesus the Christ or on an individual man whose loose tongue has done so much to discredit the Catholic Church and Christianity? If our faith centers on Christ, then why would anyone support any man who openly disrespects, defiles, disgraces and shames the very Church that Christ began 2000 years ago? I could not “respect” such a man no matter who he is.
