Pope Calls for Conference with Bernie Sanders on Income Inequality
I saw a picture the other day of the Pope laying hands on a sick child. When Jesus did that, the child would have been healed. Then Jesus wouldtry to explain to a very spiritually dense people
that what He did was what He came to do–reestablishing His authority over the authority of unseen renegade gods who had taken over His planet–that the sick child was an example of the horrible things they had done and were doing.
After modeling that behavior, He sent his disciples out to do the same thing–heal the sick, cast out the seditious unseen elohims and announce the sovereignty of God. Then just before He left, He told them what He did was what He wanted them to be doing from then on.
When the Pope laid hands on the child nothing happened. So what does the Pope do when he can’t do what He was told to do? What Christians have done for centuries. Just make up something that sounds religious.
Call for a conference with Bernie Sanders on income inequality following the conference on global warming.
