Readers may have noticed that Francis is not my favorite pope, but I have some friendly advice for him and his handlers anyway. Severely restrict photo ops during that coming visit to the White House.
A pro-abortion nun, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, and at least two openly gay Catholic activists will be among the thousands greeting Pope Francis at the White House next week, thanks to decisions by the Obama administration.
LifeSiteNews has confirmed that Mateo Williamson, a biological woman who identifies as a man, and former co-chairman of the Transgender Caucus for Dignity USA, received an invitation to the White House when Pope Francis visits next week. Williamson declined to speak with LifeSiteNews about the invitation, instead recommending invitation organizer Vivian Taylor to LifeSiteNews.
Taylor is the executive director of the national LGBT advocacy arm of the Episcopal church, and a biological male.
CruxNow reports that retired Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, currently a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, will also attend . . .
Libs in and out of the Church of Rome have been very eager to enlist Pope Francis in their causes. So if he is not careful, the White House visit will be thus exploited, one of the methods being photos with him smiling beside the likes of heretic Gene Robinson, pro-abortion nuns, and Lord knows who else. Libs will surely spin any said photos and anything else they can grasp to say Francis is on their side (which he may be in some cases).
And, deserved or not, the Pope will get a lot of grief from the photographed appearance of his support for - or least acceptance of - Gene Robinson and whoever else manages to slither up next to him. (And some of the grief may come from me.)
So I suspect this White House visit is a trap. And with Francis being sloppy, to put it nicely, with his off-the-cuff comments and conduct, he may fall right into it.
