Catholics, meanwhile, are howled down, censored and criminalized as “bigots,” “sad,” “killjoys,” “homophobes,” “misogynists,” and “fascists.”
So bad have things become that we now even have same-sex marriage being about to be made legal in France by a socialist president and in Britain by a conservative prime minister.
But the moral relativists would find it much more difficult to use such hysterical abuse against a black pope, and the trickle-down effect as far as the rest of us were concerned would be torrential. Look at the way such people avoid such abuse at all costs in the case of Muslims however bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic, and fascist their words and deeds.
I know America has a black president who is a raving liberal. But Barack Obama is the epitome of a brainwashed black man”brainwashed by the white liberal left.
Blacks may vote for Obama but they do so because he is black; that, and the money side. He is not representative of the black people I know, who on social issues revolving around sex and the family are far more conservative than white people. They believe”oh, how ignorant!”that right and wrong exist, as do good and evil. They believe”oh, what terrible homophobes and misogynists!”that men are born men and women are born women, and that men and women do not magically become men or women. They even believe that the family (defined as mother, father, and children) is sacred”oh, the fascist bigots!”and that same-sex marriage is wrong. Yes, South Africa is one of the fifteen or so countries in the world that have legalized same-sex marriage, but only because its black political caste is drunk on white liberal firewater.
Black people, in my experience, are also far more outspoken and up-front, far less careful about hiding their true feelings and thoughts, than white people. They call a spade a spade. They are less two-faced than white men, less prone to speak with a forked tongue.
A black pope, therefore, is just what the world, not just the Catholic world, really needs. It’s time to take off the velvet gloves. It’s time to get down and dirty.
The two men talked of as most likely to become the first black pope are Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana who is only 64 and Cardinal Francis Arinze of Nigeria who at 80 is probably too old. True, Cardinal Turkson wants to regulate the excesses of capitalism, but I”m pretty cool about that. Who isn”t? Bankers? Line them up! The real crisis in the West is not economic but social. At least Turkson is brave enough to warn that Europe is becoming Eurabia. Sort society out and the economy will follow. And right now, society is in a very bad place.
