Chuck Schumer: Pope Francis is ‘the best ever!’

New York Post September 25,2015

Pope Pope Francis has a new No. 1 fan — and he isn’t even Catholic.
Sen. Charles Schumer was effusive in his praise of the pontiff’s speech to Congress Thursday when the pair met later outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

“Congress just loved you and loved your speech. All of New York loves you, Catholic and non-Catholic alike,” said Schumer, who is Jewish. “We all agree in Congress, it was just about the best speech‎ we’ve ever heard!

Timothy Cardinal Dolan, who was with the pope, responded, “That’s quite a compliment!"

And a smiling Francis agreed.

“Thank you,” he told Schumer, who earlier had told CNN his “hair was standing on end” when he first met the pope.

Hopefully the Pope can pry Schumer's lips off his Holy bottom.

What Chuck heard at the Pope's speech. "Blah, blah, blah, amnesty,blah blah blah, global warming, blah blah blah."

Well, I watch it for a few minutes, and I don't know what Boehner and Biden were on, but it would take powerful drugs to keep me sitting there with my eyes open.

Funny how the left love the Pope's opinions on some science, while on most of it, they don't think he's qualified to even use the word "science". He knows with certitude what the climate of planet will do - an extremely complex and unsettled scientific endeavor, but he's crazy on the science of the unborn, and evolutionary history.

Chuckie Cheese was sorta against Hussein's Iran deal because Chuckie Cheese is only passionate about one thing: the glorious career of Chuckie Cheese. Next stop Democrat Leader in the Senate. Which wouldn't have been his if he had put up a passionate fight against the Nuclear Death for Israel and America deal.

I want the pope to discuss birth control.

and the fact that there are WAY too many people breeding and they should stop for a while. Give it a rest.

The people who are most suspicious of America are most enthusiastic about Obama. Ditto with the Pope. The people who are most antagonistic to Catholicism are most supportive of this Pope. And the people who show up when the collection basket is passed around have the most misgivings about him. But if you're a good Catholic, you accept it as part of God's plan.

I agree with you 100% William.

You hit the nail on the head.

Check out the photo I just posted.

A picture is worth a 1000 words.

" accept it as part of God's plan."

I think one should be a little more discerning about such a thing or else it means nothing.

I don't understand Catholics. The Pope is chosen by a small group of insulated men, and the Church seems pretty distant as an organization from Christ's path. The very idea of an organization seems nothing like Jesus the man. I realize that Catholics have done an enormous amount of good because of their belief, but what is the connection with Christ? It seems like branding with executives to me. I'm not trying to insult anyone, my father was Catholic, and we attended church (nominally), but I'm just trying to understand the devotion to an organization of men who surely are fallible sinners, top to bottom. Is that not not the case?

Trooper York said...

It is exactly the case. But the apostles were fallible men chosen by Jesus himself. We can do no more and should do no less.

Every time I see Schumer on TV, I expect him turn into a laughing Satan. He's one creepy guy.
