    So the scabby old harpy is going to have a try at making the Pope her new secret weapon. “God wants us to have them - Frank says so!” will be the 2013 motto.

    Nice balance.
    Mercopress, today:

    ”President Cristina Fernandez has avoided official national ceremonies where Bergoglio was leading because he has repeatedly talked about poverty, corruption and selfishness of the political system.

    Bergoglio became a priest at 32,nearl

    You know since the Vatican regained it sovereignty in 1929 there has been 7 popes Francis is the 8th, The bible predict that there would be seven kings and the eighth would be Satan himself, after the return of sovereignty (no sovereignty meant no state, therefore no kingdom like the Vatican has been since 1929). Satan is a great deceiver so he would want us to think he was one of the people etc. Francis is the eighth pope.

    Revelations prophesied the above, if like some you believe all that, but Pope John Paul did and he believed that his attempted assassination was the final part of (or one part off) The Three Secrets of Fátima that the Vatican no about but have not told us what those secrets were, at least not the final one.

    Now Francis is an Argentine that does not support the free will and rights of the Falkland islanders as quoted by the mirror, wouldn't it be ironic if he really was Satan? After all its would hardly be surprising considering hes an Argentine.

    Personally i am open minded to these prophecy's, as they may just be assumptions based of real life facts and things written in the bible ie 1 + 2 to make 3. But think about how the church ruled Europe up till Neapolitan, isn't the church itself the greatest deceiver, fornicator and sinner of them all, you only have to look at its history! The woman riding the beast with seven heads is how the bible describes the church - Worth considering.

    When I saw they had elected a new pope I thought 'ah, a new antichrist' . Then when I read that he was anti Falklands that reminded me that ALL Argentinians have been brainwashed. A son of recent immigrants thinks he has more rights to land than those who have lived there for 9 generations, its almost unbelieveable. But then you are talking about an organisation that has squeezed the poor and ignorant for thousands of years, denied women's rights, outlaws contraception, hates gay people, with a priesthood well known for sexually abusing the young and weak and yet poses as a benign 'holy' church.
    The catholic church is a crutch for people who have no mind of their own. Hypocrites who kneel before it yet ignore its instructions on contraception and abortion. It suits Argentinean people down to the ground because it is founded on lies, hypocracy and denial of what is right and true. I sincerely hope we never see this particular hypocrite in England or any British Overseas Territory.

    Haha, she is a devious bitch, it take her two minutes to manipulate this situation to get own advantage, lets hope she overplays her hand with it like she usually does. I can't see the Falklands being a great cause for concern to the Catholic Church, when Christians are being squeezed out if Muslim countries all over the world.
    In any event, the UK isn't a catholic country, I think there are six million Catholics in the UK, hardly a force for any change, not that they would support any papal erroneous claims on Falklands sovereignty. In addition the Catholic Church is about as popular as thrush in the UK, owing to all the sex scandals and paedophilia.
    Part of his duties will be to meet the head of the Anglican Church (Queen Elizabeth I I) no doubt she will put him right on any 'dialogue' issues.

    I am a British Catholic and am totally dismayed that the Argentine Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires has been elected Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church especially after the history of his involvement with the military junta of the 70s and 80s of the last century and in view of his homily on the occasion of the Mass to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the totally illegal armed invasion of the Falkland Islands in 1982. He referred to the inhabitants of the Falklands archipelago as “usurpers” and to the islands themselves as part of the “patria”(homeland) of Argentina. NO CLERIC OF ANY CHRISTIAN FAITH SHOULD BE SO ARROGANT AS TO MAKE PROVOCATIVE STATEMENTS OF THIS NATURE ON A RELIGIOUS OCCASION.

    I have no problem with patriotic clerics - they are men after all - but to make statements as he did is just not acceptable. In my opinion, his elevation to the Pontificate is a grave error and is an example of the shoddiness by which the Church now conducts its matters.

    Can Argentina afford the airfare for the bitch to fall on her knees and look the new Pope in the eyes to ask forgiveness for the manacle way that she has led her country to the edge of the abyss.

    If she finds herself on her knees in front of him she just might find out that the new Pope dislikes her and is maybe thinking of excommunicating her along with all the other sinners in that country.

    Thats if he does not have his head turned at all the loot in the Vatican vaults and remembers that he is a thieving Argentine first and foremost and loots them for his own ends.

    Everyone on here is saying she hates him for bringing attention to poverty; yet she is the most anti-poverty President in Argentine history, and she has many other reasons to clash with (not “hate”) him, like his murky role in the Dirty War for which he's refused to testify, his anti-gay and other reactionary preaching in recent years, and I imagine if he is attacking her for poverty its not because he is genuinely criticisng her from the left for not moving even faster, but as a ruse to help the right. Of course he almost certainly also has a genuine, pastoral, sense of service to the poor; people are contradictory. But when it comes to putting that pastoral service into action in the political sphere, I hope and expect most Argentine Catholics will not vote to returnt to the failed policies of the neoliberal past, whatever their Pope may wish. As a believer in God though not specifically a Catholic, I still think Cristina is the greatest living Argie, and certainly the better of the two Argies who are now Heads of State

    #58 Hopefully the Pope, whatever his other bad points, is not so stupid as you to think that “cutting inflation” (ie cutting wages and jacking up profits, just the way Menem and the IMF liked it) is the be all and end all of fighting poverty; but he probably does hold to some trickle down theories to square his genuine and humble pastoralism (unless its a complete fraud) with his right wing opposition to Liberation Theology. His highlighting that poverty still exists under Cristina, while undoubtedly true, is facile if he is effectively trying to help back to power right wingers who would do much less to raise people out of it. It seems the right have “discovered” poverty all over Latin America ever since the left have started winning elections...

    #65 you ignorant moron as always BK. Where have I ever stated that to fight inflation you cut wages, increase profits? You communist are all blinded by your desire to make everyone equally poor.
    Have idiots like you ever heard of demand pull? Aggregate demand exceeding supply? As the trade balance surpluses WERE great, it has draw, resources and products leave the country. Demand will exceed supply even if the demand remained the same. Then, when you have decreasing DFI and cannot replace supplies and resources, less supplies again. Also no new base for tax revenues, it forces asslips kirchner to print more pesos, more pesos, more demand less supplies means inflation. You are a stupid communist dickhead that would rather have the poor have handouts then have a job. Don't try to tell me my POV on how to handle inflation when I've never stated it. All her policies that are forcing businesses to flee at increasing rates and not addressing the domestic aggregate supplies cause the incredible inflation in Argentina......Simple supply and demand
    And BTW, did you hear asslips in her speech tell everyone that diabetes is a rich mans disease for eating to much and not enough exercise? That's your beautiful idiot for you..........blaming the rich for an autoimmune disease. When will the assassinate if for nothing else.....shear stupidity. And, here's another kicker, suddenly all her speeches, for those still awake, will hear her end with....“God bless you all”. She found God when her outspoken critic became Pope. I can hardly wait for a picture of her kissing the Pope's ring. The only God she ever knew was Nasty Nestor........and the devil is having his was with nasty Nestor every day for enternity.......just after Chubby Chavo.

    I think the Pope is going to hammer her, unfortunately in private, over her ways. The big talk in Rgland is seeing her kiss his

    Poppy and toxic taxi

    She will get slapped down hard, but her massive ego compels her to go. How can she resist meeting the Pope, to be acknowledged publicly by him??

    Her whole life is a lie.

    She asked him for help, but with the problems he has to deal with, Argentina will not be his concern.

    Nice to have you back on board.....
    Though he ain't no Saint, please don't believe everything you read about Mr. Bergoglio.
    Our side can also desinform.....

    In the best of Proto-Christian spirit....
    Let's hope he now sees the true light....”

    A good fair minded comment from you as I've come to expect. Of course our side is capable of its own disinforming (though as it represents the real interests of the vast majority, can never be as dependent on it as the right =)!), though its probably always a bad idea both ethically and in case you get caught (or the victim becomes Pope or something!); but I'm not convinced thats whats happening with Bergoglio. The original accusations came, decades ago, from his own priests; since then he has refused to testify at truth comissions etc; and his silence at a time when he had far more chance of speaking out than others is itself a mark against him. But I defeinately hope he now sees the light as you put it, and focuses on his advocacy for the poor, spirituality, reform of the Vatican etc, not fighting old battles wth the left. Cristina has dealt with the situation magnificently I think (as well as looking as beautiful as ever in her demure meet the Pope outfit!) and hopefully will have no reason to stop accentuating the positive...
