    Pope says abortion of sick, disabled children reflects Nazi mentality

    The Pope recently compared the abortion of children who are sick or disabled to a Nazi mentality. However, the press is talking 24/7 about children in cages along the border instead, something that happened under Obama and the press even used pictures of children in cages taken when Obama was still President.

    The media has not shame and no soul and it is beyond disgusting.

    They should be rounded up and interred.

    It's always amazed me that the Pope could spend all his time bashing building walls, behind the walled Vatican, but ignored what the Catholic church deemed mass genocide, namely abortion.

    Finally he comes out and calls Progressives what they are, Nazis, and the press is largely silent and ignores him.

    It is similar how the Vatican largely ignored the Holocaust, with only small instances of opposition. It was all done to preserve their precious walled Vatican.

    The media is bad because of the govt. does something it really doesn't need to do which the majority of folks don't like or want to happen.

    But according to the OP the govt. doing something wrong is not wrong...

    Trumpsters who see nothing wrong with Trump's policy of separating children from their parents, should know, There's a special place in hell for you for cheering this child abuse on.

    My OP only proves the radical bias of the media.

    Left wingers like yourself try to convince us that there is no such thing as "sin" and "right and wrong", as if to say that you are unbiased and nonjudgmental unlike your crazy religious counterparts.........that is until it comes to government policy you don't like.

    Unfortunately, the media has already chosen their side.

    This also happened under Obama.

    Why no outrage? Why was it not plastered all over the news? In fact, why did the news lie and take pictures of children in cages that were taken while Obama was President to try and blame them on Trump?

    The simple reason the media is not covering it is two fold.
    First is it does not show Trump in a bad light. After all it is the number one thing that most of the medias big contributors want. They somehow believe that if they can get Trump out of the White House then they can install Hillary. Yes it is misguided but then when have they not been?
    The second is it shows the liberal agenda in a bad light and that is not to be tolerated.
    You have to realize that the Vatican sees very little wrong with most things. Instead of cleansing themselves of pedophiles they try to cover it up. They are very selective on what they condemn because they are more worried about their standing then they are about the world at large.

    The media is just another militarized branch of the government. The Soviets had overt political officers, we have pundits and anchors, actors and novelists. There's always an axe to grind for one side or the other. The irony is we choose our own brainwashing each and every hour of the day. It's like that Carpenter movie They Live only we welcome the indoctrination. Heck, humanity the world over has no shame. There's evil everywhere and collectively as a race we all you can eat that stuff; please pass the salt.

    The Vatican is it's own little government, something Christ warned about when he said that his kingdom was not of this world.

    As such, human politics "trumps" the will of God every time.

    And you are correct, the Vatican has done a piss poor job regarding pedophiles. They are more interested in power and money.
