Pope Francis Asked Italian Soccer Coach Why He Made Sign of the Cross Before His Games

The pope basically told him not to do it!

It must be pretty disheartening for Catholics around the globe to read story after story after story about Pope Francis and his left-leaning ways. I would know. I’m Catholic.

It’s as if Francis took a look at the Bible once he received the votes to become pope and heaved it from a balcony in Vatican City – in many cases. Not all, but many. It’s as if he wants the world to be Protestant which makes no sense since he’s…Catholic!

This particular tale involving the head coach of the Italian national soccer team is likely to ruffle more feathers than usual, though. You see, it’s what the pope apparently told Roberto Mancini not to do that is really, really odd.

Francis convinced the former football player and current manager of Italy’s national team Roberto Mancini, 57, not to make the Sign of the Cross on the football field, Mancini told Italian television TG5

After being asked if he prays on the field, Mancini noted, “I used to do that too, you know, hoping nothing happened during the game, then we went to the pope. Pope Francis said, ‘Why are you making the sign of the cross, don’t you have other thoughts in this moment?’ So since that time I don’t do it anymore. I don’t want the pope to get angry.”

The main problem with Democrats is that it’s hard to take them seriously.

If they’re not being overtly hypocritical then they are saying something incredibly ignorant. You know the drill.

Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the worst members of Congress Democrats have to offer. She’s constantly wrong on the issues but thinks she’s right, which makes it all the more awful.

On Tuesday, she said something so ridiculous it should make moderate Democrats switch teams immediately. But will it?

WATCH:

At today’s DACA prayer breakfast, Sen. @maziehirono says we need activists “committed to human rights and environmental rights, climate change — believe in climate change as though it’s a religion (it’s not it’s science).”

Reactions:

Prayer breakfast? These people wouldn’t know a bible if someone hit them over the head with it.

Wait…a DACA prayer breakfast? What the *%¥€ is that? Is there a Green New Deal prayer breakfast? Actually, don’t answer that…

Even they know the science doesn’t support their claims, so now they have to treat it as a religion to keep people reeled in. All to hide that it is a massive money and power grab that will hurt the poorest people most.

DACA “Prayer Breakfast”. OK 🙄. Worship “Dreamers”, climate change… as long as it isn’t God they’re cool.

Well it is a cult. A scientist just lost her job because she reported polar bear populations are good

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
