Pope Francis Advocates Religious Freedom, Inclusiveness in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA— Pope Francis addressed a crowd of thousands gathered at Independence Mall, using the nation’s birthplace as a jumping off point to expand upon his trip’s themes of religious freedom and inclusiveness.

“It was here that the freedoms which define this country were first proclaimed,” the pope said in Spanish to the crowd, calling the stop “one of the highlights” of his visit to the United States.

Speaking from the lectern used by President Abraham Lincoln to deliver the Gettysburg Address, he reminded people of the equality promised by the Declaration of Independence and that all people “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.”

    I have been a devout Christian for most of my 72 years and I can tell you without equivocation, this Poopy is disgusting. First of all, to you Christians, you DO NOT need a Poopy, Cardinal, or Priest for you have direct contact with our savior Jesus who sets at the right hand of the father interceding for each and everyone of us……leave this disgusting cult!
    This disgusting Poopy, the whole time he has been here, has said absolutely nothing about persecuted Christians throughout the Middle East. The fact that Obama, the Manure Spreader, is allowing Muslims to enter the U.S. freely, but will not even issue Visas to any persecuted Christians.
    However, he has run his mouth about Global Warming, which is a complete lie, fraud, and money driven hoax. He never once took a strong Biblical stand against homo-ism, same sex marriage, or trans-whatever. In fact, all he has done in this area is to lead people in believing there is room for compromise or capitulation.
    The idiot NEVER spoke once about ISIL a totally depraved islamic puke driven bunch of terrorists that should be wiped of the face of the earth…..something I am praying for every day directly to God.
    He also blatantly lied about islam and praised them, which is not a religion but an ideology hell bent on world domination at whatever the cost. Playing nice with these fools will do nothing but get you killed. Don’t believe me, go here “prophetofdoom.net” and learn the truth from the best book ever written on this putrid ideology.
    This Poopy is also a Marxist loving socialist and he needs to keep Jesus out of his socialism. Jesus only helped those who truly needed His help and that is what we should do, “individually”, without fan fair. But as a Marxist, he believes in stealing wealth and redistributing it without any vetting.
    I could go on forever about this Poopy and others in the past as well, but this is enough for now.

      Your hate and bigotry and holier than thou attitude is what is destroying this country. Go ahead and keep casting the first stones.

        WOW! I doubt that you are really Obama the Manure Spreader, but I will play along. I do have a question, with most of the dummycrats and all of the RINO’s living up your butt, I bet constipation is a real problem that has already infected your head!!
