During his first visit to the United States, Pope Francis is going to feel a lot of love from hundreds of thousands of people, but he is well aware that a large number of Americans beyond the adoring crowds view him with angry disgust. To them, his teachings on climate change, indulgent consumerism, excessive wealth and capitalist exploitation of the poor are nothing short of socialism. Add to that his open embrace of the refugees from Syria who are flooding into Europe, and quite a few folks on the right are convinced that, far from being a good Christian, Francis is a dangerous charlatan.
“A man who preaches that Europe should be flooded by Muslims so that Christianity in Europe is wiped out is a good voice for Christianity? Are you (rhymes with trucking) stupid u subhuman stinking (coarse slang for feces)?”
