The couple mentioned are Yayo Grassi and his partner Iwan. The pope hugged Grassi and Iwan while the media ate it up and liberals all over the world swooned.
Clearly, the Pope believes that his need for leftist media approval to push his leftist agenda – radical environmentalism, redistributionism, pacifism – trumps emphasis on key elements of Catholic doctrine. If Francis has to buy off the press with stories ripping Kim Davis and championing papal tolerance for homosexual couples, that’s because he has something bigger at play. Evidence continues to mount that Pope Francis is a devotee of liberation theology, the Marxist theology prominent in Latin America and decried by Pope John Paul II (“does not tally with the church’s catechism”) and Pope Benedict XVI (“singular heresy”).
While the Pope continues to promote his left-leaning agenda, the rest of the country is left wondering when people will start talking about political issues that actually affect America's wellbeing, like the growing threat of ISIS, or any of the religious issues the Pope must have forgotten to talk about.
