WASHINGTON, July 17, 2015 — Conservative radio talk-show host and columnist Dennis Prager observed in his Tuesday column, “The most dynamic religion in the past hundred years has been Leftism – not Christianity or Islam or any other traditional religion.”
His point was driven home by Pope Francis’s gracious acceptance of a crucifix carved onto the communist hammer-and-sickle. The gift was from Bolivia’s Marxist strongman Evo Morales.
When some in the media reported that the Pope was offended by the gift, a papal spokesman allayed their fears. “I understand this work,” Pope Francis insisted. “For me it wasn’t an offense.”
The Center for the Study of Global Christianity calculates that around 20 million Christians died in Soviet prison camps from 1921-1980.

The Pope later gave hope to the international socialist project by dubbing capitalism the “dung of the devil,” though he has yet to announce the divestment by his church of its billions of dollars in assets for redistribution to the worlds starving masses.
Liberation theologists living in glass Vaticans should be the last to cast stones — especially when they govern armies of priests accused of sexually abusing children worldwide.
The Italian magazine Panorama published an expose that garnered little attention in the U.S. when it was published in 2010. Reporter Carmelo Abbate went undercover for 20 days and surreptitiously videotaped homosexual sex parties among Rome’s priestly elites, one of whom later performed mass in Saint Peter’s Basilica.
Pope Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, resigned his post shortly after receiving a 300-page report on sexual misconduct within the Vatican.
According to the Manchester Guardian, a Catholic cardinal claimed the report focused on abuses by priest “united by sexual orientation” and that the Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported “that a gay network exists in the Vatican.”
Pope Benedict was the first sitting pontiff to resign since Gregory XII, resigned in 1415.
As Donald Cozzens, a professor of religious studies at John Carroll University wrote in the Boston Globe, “The predominance of male teenage [sexual abuse] victims raises anew a thorny issue … the presence of significant numbers of homosexually oriented men in the priesthood.”
Cozzens raised that thorny issue in 2002, at the height of the abuse scandal. Today, thanks to the new religion, addressing such thorny issues can get you fired. Mozzilla co-founder Brendan Eich was pressured to resign as company CEO after it was discovered he contributed $1,000 to California’s Proposition 8 campaign. The measure, which sought to define marriage as between a man and a woman, passed with 52.3 percent of the vote, roughly what Barack Obama received nationally in 2012.
However, the black-robed priests of the new religion later overturned the law.
Eich violated the canons of political correctness. And political incorrectness is just another term for heresy.
Like many ancient religions, the new religion calls for blood sacrifice.
The Old Testament story of Abraham and his son Isaac illustrates the extent to which Judaism sought to distinguish itself from the religious traditions of the ancient cultures surrounding it.
When Abraham, obeying a command from God, was about to offer his son Isaac in blood sacrifice, he was stopped by an angel. “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” said the angel, “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”

Children of ancient Carthage were not so lucky, according to archeological evidence uncovered at Topheth, in the Hinnom valley near Jerusalem.
“It’s becoming clear that the stories about Carthaginian child sacrifice are true,” said Oxford University’s Josephine Quinn. “This is something the Romans and Greeks said the Carthaginians did.”
And like the Carthaginians, the new religion of Leftism has no angels to stay the hand and blade of the faithful. Take Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, for instance.
She is currently the center of controversy after telling an undercover anti-abortionist that her stable of doctors are “very good at getting [fetus’] heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” said Dr. Nucatola, adding that her abortionists also take “the calvaium [child’s head].”
Nucatola admits in the video that Planned Parenthood harvests embryo parts for medical research — for a profit. Some would call it “the dung of the devil.” Not the harvesting of human body parts, but the profit taking.
The grand inquisitors of the new religion, the mainstream media, were horrified by the video. “Does the Planned Parenthood video violate state recording law?” asked MSNBC. The network fears the video was recorded without the consent of all parties.
MSNBC added that California wire tapping law (where the video was shot), opens the videographer up “to a lawsuit for damages by the injured party.”
The injured party in this case is the Carthaginian body-part-harvester, not the dismembered infant.
Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, whose theories on eugenics would later inspire the forced-sterilization policies of Nazi Germany, wrote in 1914, “Birth control [now abortion] appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian Churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism.”
You know the new religion of Leftism has triumphed when the Roman Pope, the so-called “Vicar of Christ,” sounds like a cross between Che Guevara and Margaret Sanger.
