Newsweek Claims Obama Is More Catholic Than the Pope

Newsweek's latest plunge into self-parody:


Chairman Zero, who voted four times to support killing babies who survive attempted abortions, is infamous for his contempt for the sanctity of innocent human life — a principle central to the Catholic faith. Anyone who supports Obama and claims to be Catholic is mocking God.

The rats aboard the sinking ship at Newsweak have made their strategy clear: steer a course for the most outrageous extreme of moonbattery conceivable. That way, they can corner the market of people who don't know what to do with themselves when Keith Olbermann isn't on the air.

They're still publishing Newsweek? Who knew? And, more to the point, why?

should catholics rise up in the streets & behead non-catholics because this article implies that the pope is inferior to Obama?

the headline I'm waiting for
"Obama more popular than Mohammad"

Posted by: eat me at July 10, 2009 10:07 AM

Evan Thomas, Chief Newsweek Editor, remarked that 0bama is "a sort of god."

It should come as no surprise that these moonbats think that he's more catholic than the pope.

The headline is "almost true"...because it refers to "American Catholics", and - as we all know - the CINOs in the U.S. fully support abortion at every stage, short of puberty. The time has long-since past for the Pope to drop the other shoe.

I have accused Liberals of "acting holier-than-Pope", but this is rediculous!

Posted by: KHarn at July 10, 2009 10:33 AM

As a Roman Catholic I am disgusted at this comparision. What sort of "catholics" does Newsweek have in the mind? The infantical, sodomy approving nihilistic worshippers of Ba'al Moloch who call themeselves catholic?

Hmmm.....odds on, they are democrats as well.

A couple of days ago the Pope called for international regulation of financial markets....just wondering how many American Catholics are in support of that.

I don't know, Ben. Haven't seen any polling. But, in my opinion, that is not the pope's place.

Meacham once said to Bill O "Newsweek isn't partisan." His facial expression...I recall it was kind of vacant, like a starry eyed moonbat.

When I read stuff like that it makes me thankful that, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." is in our Constitution.

Dell - the term is Cafeteria Catholics - I'm sorry but Ms. Townshend is insane.

They are not Catholic at all if they support obama. They have the right to be Catholic but they have flushed it down the toilet for the sake of a Marxist child torturer and murderer. They can't claim stupidity for the truth of all issues has been told to them loudly and clearly. They have no excuses whatsoever. It would be better that they had a millstone put round their necks and be tossed into the sea. The Church is being renewed by being purged. Throw open wide the door and usher them all OUT. Let them be anathema!

Pope's Encyclical Speaks AGAINST One-World Gov/NWO

Posted by: bjl at July 10, 2009 12:46 PM

As with all the Pope's writings, his latest encyclical is WAY over the heads of the MSM. I swear they scan his writing until they can find something they can be outraged about and then stop reading.

obama has hoisted himself!!!

he mentions recently about the catholic churches social justice that inspired him to religion.

well do some reasearch on what ratsinger wrote about social justice at the end of his book..

you can find it on the net as a short excerpt essay.

and please, remember you heard it from me first.

Liberals do act holier than thou......... but this doesn't just take the cake but the whole fuckin' BAKERY!

0bama & the Pope are the same as far as I'm concerned. I have no use for either. Also, I would say that Michael Jackson is more Catholic than both of them.

Remember, these Newsweek shitbirds are the ones who pathetically explained how losing massive amounts of suscribers forcing them to put out a smaller, yet more expensive "newz" magazine was a good thing for them.

"What sort of "catholics" does Newsweek have in the mind? The infantical, sodomy approving nihilistic worshippers of Ba'al Moloch who call themeselves catholic?"

Well, yes, the likes of Unlce Teddy Kennedy, Jean Francious Kerry, Queen Nancy Pelousy (who has been rebuked by the Pope for her stance on abortion. just to name a few.

Apparently the Pope also read Newstweek, and in order to help BHO transition into his new place as the role model to American Catholics, the Pope handed him a copy of the Vatican's document on bioethics and human dignity. The pope’s personal secretary, told reporters the document would help Obama understand the church’s reasoning behind its efforts to protect human life at every stage of its development.

I'm sure BHO won't be able to put it down after he checks out a few more Brazillian tushies.

I haven't read the Newsweek article, but I do recall that 53% of American 'Catholics' voted for a man who fully supports the butchering of babies from conception to several hours after a failed butchering . So, it appears that our president does represent American 'Catholics' better than the Pope, whose goal is to protect innocent human life and stop the baby butchers.

This is because 53% of American 'Catholics' aren't Catholic at all. They are liberal Democrats first, foremost, and above all other considerations. I know several of them personally, including priests, who have such a warped definition of 'social justice', such a condescending intellectualism, such a sanctimonious view of the 'oppressed', such an immature morality, such an impoverished spirituality, and such an adolescent connection to party politics, that I just cannot believe that these people are actually adults, making decisions in an adult world.

The only thing that keeps me hopeful is finding the few real Catholics who truly understand their Faith, and the few conservative priests who aren't afraid to vocalize the true teachings of the Church which is now, as always, wisely standing in opposition to the madness of progressive ideology.

Based on all I've read from Ratzinger/Benedict XVI so far, I'm hopeful that this encyclical will stand alongside 20 centuries of Catholic wisdom. I've heard that this encyclical is highly philosophical and thought-provoking. It seems to be easily misunderstood by both the secular and religious worlds. I've heard contradicting comments coming from both sides. I plan to read it and look for reviews from true and trusted Catholic thinkers.

Why Barack Obama represents American Catholic citizens better than the pope does.
