" Pope is being used by Obama to further a liberal agenda"

Just part of one comment…and there are MANY in social media everywhere…made by outraged Right Wingers, Catholic or not.

"What WASN'T political about the Vicar of Christs visit?...Illegal immigration addressed...check. Global Warming...check...refugees...check...anti capitalizm...check..his trip to Cuba...check...No outrage from the left.. that Obama used the pope to further his progressive separation of church and state??"
Looks like these so-called Christians know their holy book as well as they "know" the Constitution:

1 John 3:17-18 “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” (NIV)

Deuteronomy 24:19-21 “When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. When you beat the olives from your trees, do not go over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow. When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over the vines again. Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow.”

Of course, conservatives feel all these so-called rules and regulations are a hinderance on their right to tell everyone else how to live his life. 

From a discussion on FOX:"...But Napolitano disagrees. He says that he respects the authority of the pope as the “vicar of Christ on earth.” Then he says:
“He’s infallible on matter of faith and morals. Thank God it’s just faith and morals, because his economics is a Latin American version of Marxism, which simply is inconsistent with prosperity in the West.”

But, of course, they are entitled to drill for oil everywhere (profits, of course), pollute the water and air (can't waste money on that), privatize national parks and forested areas (got to pay for things, you know?)

Psalm 24:1 (BBE) <A Psalm. Of David.> The earth is the Lord's, with all its wealth; the world and all the people living in it.
After God went to all the trouble of creating this great planet…and the entire universe….do you think He wants it raped and ruined, just so SOME of the people on it can get richer and richer? 
Seems like the Right Wing is content to "use" the pope and the Catholic church if it suits their meme on abortion, women's rights, pushing a conservative view of religion on everyone. But lo and behold, if the main part of his message is anathema to their mindset (and their Revisionist Bible) then the man is a false profit, a liar, a liberal.

James 1:26  If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.
