Pope Francis Named Time Person Of 2013

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The 21st century has proven interesting when it comes to Time's choices for person of the year: George Dubya, twice, Barack Obama, twice, Vladimir Putin, Ben Bernanke, and of course, Mark Zuckerberg. And now, moments ago, the Time person of the year 2013 has been revealed: the winner - Pope Francis, best known recently for bashing materialists and those who cry over a 2 point drop in stocks everywhere. Sorry Miley Cyrus - more twerking will be required in 2014 to make up for this epic loss.

From CNN:

Time has named Pope Francis its person of the year.

 

Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina is known as a humble man, a capable administrator and -- as expected of a new Pope -- a man of great faith.

 

He is also a man of many firsts: the first non-European Pope in the modern era; the first pontiff from South America; and the first Jesuit to be elected head of the Roman Catholic Church.

 

In his first public act, the new Pope broke with tradition by asking the estimated 150,000 people packed into St. Peter's Square to pray for him, rather than bless the crowd first.

 

Francis, 76, was born in Buenos Aires on December 17, 1936. The son of an Italian immigrant, he trained as a chemist before deciding to become a priest.

 

He was ordained by the Jesuits in 1969 and became co-archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1997, then sole archbishop of that city one year later. He was made a cardinal in 2001 and was president of the Argentine bishops conference from 2005 to 2011.

 

As cardinal, Francis clashed with the government of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner over his opposition to gay marriage and free distribution of contraceptives.

 

He was runner-up in the 2005 papal conclave, behind then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, according to a profile by CNN Vatican analyst John Allen published by the National Catholic Reporter.

 

The new Pope brings together the first and the developing worlds, Allen writes. Besides his Italian roots, Francis studied theology in Germany.

 

His career coincided with the so-called Dirty War in Argentina, which lasted from 1976 to 1983. It is estimated that as many as 30,000 people were killed or disappeared during the country's military dictatorship.

 

The church was seen by some as not having done enough in that period. In particular, Francis was accused in a complaint filed three days before the 2005 conclave of complicity in the 1976 kidnapping of two liberal Jesuit priests, Allen writes. Francis reportedly denied the charge.

 

He is known for his simplicity and has a reputation of being a voice for the poor.

Snowjob isn't real. He's just a face for the edicts that come out of the MIC. He states that all US citizens are under surveillance 24/7 - and nothing happens. Not to him, not to the corrupt criminals we call politicians, not to the people in the military who are sworn to prevent this shit and protect our rights ... no one.

Anyone who thinks Snowjob is real is dreaming. He's just a mouthpiece who will continue to dribble the latest oppression rules when convenient for TPTB.

Francis is an absolute trainwreck of a Pope, a crypto-Marxist and closet moral relativist. In other words, exactly the kind of Pope that Time magazine has been looking for.

Pope (San) Francis(co) said "who am I to judge" (homosexuals)?  He told the International youth convention to go back to their diocese and "make a mess".
It's a nod to the homos and feminists lurking in the churches to act out and act up, and act up they are beginning to do.

I was raised catholic and spent 8 years in jesuit schools. The whole organization is socialist by anybody's definition, which is all well and good when they mind their own business and act charitably and all that, but when this old bag gets up on stage as a world leader (both religious and sovereign) and pitches socialism to the masses he becomes a part of the problem.

Ghordius, the Vatican is loaded in wealth and even has its own bank for money laundering.  Much of the wealth is managed by the Rothschilds in ventures that oppress.  The Vatican is in possession of much of man's history and knowledge and have for millennia, kept these from the general population as a means of control.  Furthermore, they push the big scam known as religion, the one developed by Constantine as a mix of Jesus' teachings, Mithra, Zoro-astrianism, as well as the heap of other myths popular at the time.

The fact that you don't know any of this speaks to the level of success the Vatican has had in suppressing the truth.

Yep. Edward certainly is the man of the year, perhaps of this century as we continue down this dark road to blanket surveillance and the emergence of the global blackmailing, industrial espionage committing criminals with their fingers in every pie, and everyone's privates. 

(I can't blame anyone for taking a dim view of Catholics,  but even though I'm not a particularly good one - the Dogma among other things trouble me - I am catholic and have high hopes for our pope. The Jesuits are known for their academic excellence, bravery, and evangelism - three essential ingredients to tackle the problems of the organisation and the future). Maybe organised religions have had their day, they certainly have a tendency to cause more grief than solutions,  but as long as the central messages of love and forgiveness are held high, I think it's worth having a meeting place for like-minded individuals to share the burdens of life.

History repeats. Another infallible chimp wearing clothing assumes the robes make him omniscient. As Lord Acton in 1887 wrote about the Pope declaring himself infallible in doctrine, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it."

The RCC was behind Hitler.  Hitler was a good Catholic.  The Jesuits also started Islam.

fiftybagger has his ground when saying that... just read all over below!

 

search "Alberto Rivera Former Jesuit priest"

Try this one too: "Dr. Alberto Rivera" Ex Jesuit Father Fr. Priest - http://bit.ly/WBBUWO

 

Talking about this RCC & Islam relationship, just read ALBERTO RIVERA's revelation on "How the Vatican created Islam": http://scr.bi/dEbmgh  ...as a starter

Another fascinating read too - THE GODFATHERS: http://bit.ly/hsbNwK

 

We are all really living in a "fascinating" world (or, should i say, a pathetic and scarying world?)  The bright side is life has endgame for all with no exception :D

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Jesus Christ

Snowden is the obvious choice, but he ran while Manning stayed put and willingly faced the UCMJ.

As a young pastir, I once had a revelation that put me at odds with the official theology of my church. So I set out to reform the church. In the midst of my frustration that the church seemed unwiling to reform itself, an old Mennonite told me, " No churchj in the history of the world has ever reformed itself. If you want to preach your revelation without persecution, you'll have to start a new church."

Well, guess what? The old Mennonite was right. No church in the world has ever changed theior doctrine and become a new, reformed church.

Of course truth is in the eye of the beholder, and there is no accounting for the absurdity of evreyone's faith.

what a fucking joke that Snowden wasn't recognized.  But really, who cares?  Time is run by a bunch of elitist soclialists that are a bunch of prentenders.

 

Re: Pope Francis.  As a Catholic I see him doing some good things for the poor, etc.  But he will in the end, bring down the whole chruch.  Marxists always have a way of destroying whatever they touch, all in the name of social justice.

My father laugh at tha fact that this Pope looks a lot like Stan Laurel...anyway, I've read somewhere that Time Magazine has this thing where they write Time behind the head of those they respect and put it right on the forehead of those they want to slander...needless to say, Berlusconi had TIME all over his face.

Communist child molester.

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Somehow, I doubt the new pope is really as world-shatteringly different as they would have us believe.  Why would the church with all its interests and the bishops with all their axes to grind go against their personal and organizational interests by selecting a guy who might actually start reforming things?  I doubt he's going to do really change as much as people think.  I might be wrong, but how hard is it to seize the moral highground of the poor?  It isn't like anyone could argue AGAINST the poor without looking like a monster.

Francis is going to figure out the real face of the beast once Obama and his HHS minions close down all those Catholic hospitals for not embrancing infanticide.   Then he can hang out with the poor all he wants.

Anyone and anything that distracts from the monster state, whether Francis, Cyrus, or Ryan, is an enemy of free people.

Nice guy to place in the store window while neo-realism keeps the well-fed crony feudal fascists in bed with the carabinieri, enjoying their landscapes while the streets are ruled by the darker pools of quick cash operators.
