Pope Declares 'Pagan' Christians are 'Enemies of the Cross'

I Am So Proud

  • As we face the intolerance of Islamic monsters, the Pope has declared that I am an "Enemy of the cross of Christ.”  I am proud to know that my work is finally being recognized.

(Editor  -  I usually avoid the topic of religion, but the Pope started this fight. It appears that the Pope forgot there was a Protestant Reformation and that we are allowed to seek God in our own way. But the Pope wants to name call and say I am a Pagan-Christian and an enemy.)

Not all those who claim to be Christians really are, said Pope Francis Friday morning. Some are Christians “in name only,” he said. “They bear the name of Christians but live a life of pagans.”

In his homily at Mass, the Pope that there have always been two types of Christian, those who truly followed Christ and those who only pretended to. At the time of Saint Paul, there were “worldly Christians, Christians in name only, with two or three Christian features, but nothing more.” The Pope called this sort of people “Pagan Christians,” whom St. Paul called “enemies of the cross of Christ.”

Thanks For Nothing
The Pope says I am a Pagan Christian.
In Paul’s time, the Pope said, the two groups of Christians “were in church together, went to Mass on Sunday, praised the Lord, and were called Christians.” So what was the difference? He asked. The second were “enemies of the cross of Christ,” reports Breitbart.

The Pope went on to say that “even today there are many! We must be careful not to slip into the way of pagan Christians.” These are the ones, he said, who are “pagans painted over with two brush strokes of Christianity, so they look like Christians, but are really pagans.”

According to Francis, we all run the risk of becoming “Christians in appearance.” We are tempted, he said, to mediocrity, and when Christians become mediocre, “it is their ruin, because the heart cools and they become lukewarm.” Francis reminded his hearers that Jesus used strong language to describe this sort of Christians: “Because you are lukewarm, I will vomit you out of my mouth.”

These, the Pope said, “are enemies of the cross of Christ. They take the name of Christian, but do not follow the requirements of the Christian life.”

The Pope suggested that there are questions we can ask ourselves to know what sort of Christians we are. He said that all of us—the Pope included—need to ask ourselves: “How much worldliness is in me? How much paganism?”

Even more specifically, the Pope asked: “Do I like to brag? Do I like money? Do I like my pride, my arrogance? Where are my roots, and where is my citizenship? In heaven or on earth?”

“If you love money and are attached to it, if you love vanity and pride, you are headed down a bad road,” he said. If, instead, he continued, “you try to love God and serve others, if you are gentle, if you are humble, if you are the servant of others, you are on the right path. Your citizenship is in heaven.”

Catholics Torturing Non-Believers
By declaring fellow Christians “enemies of the cross of Christ” it looks like Pope Francis longs for the good old days when free thinking Christians could be tortured to death in the name of the Catholic Church. 

"The wheel was one of the most popular and insidious methods of torture and execution practiced. The giant spiked wheel was able to break bodies as it rolled forward, causing the most agonizing and drawn-out death.
"Other forms include the "braided" wheel, where the victim would be tied to the execution dock or platform. Their limbs were spread and tied to stakes or iron rings on the ground.
Slices of wood were placed under the main joints, wrists, ankles, knees, hips, and elbows. The executioner would then smash every joint with the iron-tyred edge of the wheel--however the executioner would avoid fatal blows to give the victim a painful death."

Pagans to use 'rain magic' on Homer

(London Telegraph)  -  Pagans have pledged to perform "rain magic" to wash away Homer Simpson, the cartoon character, who was painted next to their famous fertility symbol, the Cerne Abbas giant.
The 17th century chalk outline of the naked, club-wielding giant is believed by many to be a symbol of ancient spirituality.
Many couples also believe the 180 ft giant, which is carved in the hillside above Cerne Abbas, Dorset, is an aid to fertility.
A Homer Simpson brandishing a doughnut was painted next to the figure in a publicity stunt for a film company.
It has been painted with water-based biodegradable paint which will wash away as soon as it rains.
Ann Bryn-Evans, the joint Wessex district manager for The Pagan Federation, said: "It's very disrespectful and not at all aesthetically pleasing. We were hoping for some dry weather but we'll be doing some rain magic to bring the rain and wash it away.
"I'm amazed they got permission to do something so ridiculous. It's an area of scientific interest."
