Pope Francis, while visiting Ecuador, has called for new ecological and economic world order. His concern for the poor is certainly fitting and good but his political preaching is purely bad.

The Pope, as might be expected from an Argentinean, is a Leftist, a socialist. He is someone whose proclamations and encyclicals are unfriendly to Western capitalism. He also promotes the fraud of man-made climate change and supports nonsense like carbon footprint regulations for everyone but the worst offenders, like China and India.

What I find most offensive about the Pope's political agenda is what appears to be a comparative absence of policies which could help the victims of Islamic terror around the world. Islam is not sufficiently identified by name as the cause of the on-going Judeo-Christian Holocaust, especially in North Africa and the Middle East.

I have to ask whether the Pope agrees with Barack Obama's stunningly stupid recent statement to the Pentagon: "This challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort," the president said. "Ideologies are not defeated with guns but better ideas and more attracting and more compelling vision. This fool (Obama) seems oblivious to the fact that the Islamic "vision" has forever been, and will remain, the submission of the rest of the world to Islam. And so he proclaims that "We'll constantly reaffirm through words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam."

These words were spoken by the Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the United States. These words are both utterly insane and an admission that our President will never go to war against the forces of militant Islam, in violation of his oath to preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The Pope seems to fit right in with this craven policy of faint-hearted defense against the forces of Sharia Islam which demands the destruction of Western civilization, personified by the United States of America. I believe the Pope's reluctance to speak out boldly and unequivocally in defense of Islam's murdered millions is due to a fear of the Vatican itself being attacked.

I believe that Barack Obama's cowardly refusal to take the military action required to defeat ISIS and its hydra-headed Islamic killers is due to his lightly disguised support for Islam. As the crucifixions, beheadings, rapes, burnings, drownings, female mutilations, church burnings, child murders, sex slavery, and Islam's historically traditional slave trade continue at a brisk pace, Obama plays golf and fantasizes about his legacy.

Both leaders should remember that defense against Islamic butchery is more important than carbon footprints or dreams of questionable legacy.
