White House's Pope Welcome Is 'Anti-Christian,' Huckabee Says & Conservatives outraged at gays on White House guest list for Pope Francis — Vatican? Not so much 21SEP15
SO much hypocrisy in mike huckabee's "christian" tweets. Let's start with the hateful attitudes towards the President, Muslims and seemingly anyone not a right wing evangelical extremist. It is so very obvious he is using the Pope's visit to stoke the hatred of his flock. But even more glaring is the self righteous rants of thomas williams, ex adulterous catholic priest "Williams is a vulnerable messenger for such a critique: He was a priest of a secretive and influential religious order, the Legionaries of Christ, a longtime favorite of the Catholic right, which the Vatican has been trying to overhaul after revelations of lurid sex and money scandals.
He later left the priesthood to marry a woman — the daughter of Mary Ann Glendon, a conservative Catholic law professor and ambassador to the Holy See under President Bush — with whom he had secretly had a child while he was still a cleric." mike huckabee, thomas williams and all the others offended by the guest list for the arrival ceremony for Pope Francis would do well to remember the kind of people Jesus Christ met and ate with, served and blessed and healed. As Christ representative on earth (for the Catholic Church) I believe the Pope will welcome all who have gathered to greet him just as Christ himself welcomes all who come to Him.
