The election of Pope Francis was the first time in the history of the Church that an confessed socialist had ever occupied the most revered station in Christendom. Moreover, Francis is openly globalist and supports a version of environmentalism that stretches the position of the Church to embrace Pagan principles. Francis has changed the face of the Vatican and is openly calling for an end to national sovereignty and promotes global government while sheltering pedophiles and degenerates within the church hierarchy. He embraces the concept of a world religion and openly supports Chinese communist leadership that attacks all forms of religious expression and individual rights. He is virulently Anti-Trump and is outspokenly Anti-American on many issues. His agenda conflicts with Biblical teachings in many ways, and his station as the head of the Christian world challenges the faith of many and tarnishes the image of the Catholic church at a critical time in world history
Pope Francis is the first Jesuit Pope in the history of the Catholic Church and was elected to the Papacy in a most unusual and controversial way. He replaced a very tradional and conservative Pope (Benedict XVI) who as an outspoken defender of the fundamental tenets of the Church resigned in a equally unusual and controversial way.
The election of Pope Francis was the first time in the history of the Church that a Jesuit Priest was made Pontiff, and was the first time that a devout socialist and Marxist had ever occupied the most revered office in Christendom. Most devout Catholics saw a very real conflict between the teachings of collectivists and the tenets of personal responsibility.
