As recently as July, Pope Francis was railing against "unfettered capitalism" as the greatest global threat to world peace and the lives of the poor, believing that the poor and disadvantaged become leaders of violent revolutions. He ushered Liberation Theology back into the Vatican, a belief system akin to Marxism that seeks to force the redistribution of wealth by governments, or almost any other means necessary. He ignored the advancing armies of IslamoNazism, like ISIS, which were systematically killing, raping, and destroying the oldest Christian communities in the world in countries like Syria, Turkey, and Iraq:
The truth is that the most violent and brutal enemies of human dignity, liberty, and civilization usually come from the middle and upper classes. Marx, Lenin, Hitler's top ministers, Tojo and Emperor Hirohito, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, the Kims of North Korea, Osama bin Laden, et al, were from childhood onward well-off or rich, and unfamiliar with poverty.
But now Pope Francis has discovered that much of Islam has morphed into a savage enemy of everything Christian, Jewish, and genuinely liberal. Western civilization in its entirety will be annihilated if ISIS and other groups like Hamas, Hezballah, Boko Haram, and the Muslim Brotherhood have their way. They're building a new nation, the long-dreamed-of Caliphate, in the Middle East. Christians there have been charitable, generous, peaceful, and kind for two-thousand years. But that's irrelevant now that the worst psychopathic killers in society are leading the Muslims. The Pope has a contract out on him, and the Italian government has had to step up Vatican security:
For the first time in hundreds of years, a Pope has called for the use of force to eliminate these threats:
We're entering a new age of religious wars and violence on a scale that hasn't been seen on earth before. The good news is that this type of Armageddon was predicted in the Book of Revelation two-thousand-years ago, and it's the precursor to very great and wonderful things to come. But a great deal of faith is required of us, because all will seem lost as the days and months pass. From the New Testament, Matthew 24:3 - 48:
