A Call for the Pope's Resignation

By Douglas V. Gibbs, AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

I have quipped on my radio program, Constitution Radio with Douglas V. Gibbs, that (with an apology to my Catholic listeners) I am not sure if the Pope is Catholic.  Heck, I am not even sure if he resembles being a Christian.  He's a leftist, and since he's a Jesuit (an order heavily influenced and infiltrated by Marxism) the leftist attitude of Pope Francis is kind of no surprise.

The papacy of Pope Francis, a term that is about three years old at this point, has been filled with controversy. . . and now the controversies are multiplying like rabbits.

Pope Francis has opened his mouth politically, taking sides, and always taking sides with left-wing positions that are, to be honest, confusing to the faithful.  The Pope has sided with open borders while the Vatican is surrounded by a wall, has spoke out in favor of gun control while being protected by armed guards, has spouted out favorable comments for socialist economic policies, has come out in support of the man-made climate change hoax, has failed to defend God's definition of marriage, and has been holding hands with Islam as Muslim leaders vow the destruction of Christianity, the Western World, and try to position themselves for eventual world domination by Islam.

Pope Francis has abandoned the Word of God, and has shown severe doubt in the mercy and grace of God. God makes up for our frailties, but He also expects us to stand up for His Word, His Values, and His Commands.

When it comes to marriage, Francis seems to be at odds with the institution.  He has said that most marriages are invalid because couples don’t understand a life-long commitment, while refusing to clearly stand against the abomination of gay marriage.  With that kind of thinking, pretty much everything in life is invalid.  In comparison to God, and now, apparently, according to Pope Francis, we don't understand much when it comes to spirituality, or the reality of our world.  Does that mean we have no right to participate in life?

The Pope's words and actions have been contrary to the teachings of Christ. Francis has cast doubt on if he is fit for the position of Pope, and if he is even a Christian in the first place.  As the face of the Catholic Church, the leader of the church in the minds of the faithful, the Pope's actions and words are literally bringing the Church’s legitimacy into question.

He's a "make everyone happy if I can" Pope.  And that is a problem with the Christian religion as a whole, of late.  Christian pastors in general have been teaching love and tolerance, but God's message is about God's love and our repentance.  Sin and Hell have been removed, and "can't we all just get along" has been inserted, instead.

Pope Francis has proven he is not fit for Pope, and he should be resigning because he is not only no longer able to do his job, he is actually in conflict with the faithful, and the Word of God.

Pope Francis should resign, and Catholics should demand it.  Otherwise, The validity of the Catholic Church as a Christian religion is seriously at risk.
