Rubio encourages pope to renounce Baal Tyranny


Rubio encourages pope to renounce Baal Tyranny

“Sen. Marco Rubio, a Catholic and son of parents who fled the communist paradise, denounced, warning that the move as ‘more than just putting U.S. national security at risk, President Obama is letting down the Cuban people, who still yearn to be free.’ Rubio didn’t spare any words for his spiritual shepherd, who he politely encouraged to ‘take up the cause of freedom and democracy, which is critical for a free people — for a people to truly be free.’”

“While it might be fodder for sensational journalism, Rubio and other Catholics who make public policy shouldn’t have to correct their pontiff on foreign affairs. Clerics are spiritual leaders, not political ones. When prelates pretend to be diplomats, it dilutes their authority on issues of faith and morals.”

“Francis might have done one better by prodding the Castro brothers about their regime’s woeful human rights record. That would have been in a Pope’s wheelhouse.”
