  • Here is a transcript of an interview with the now Pope Francis;

    A SOCIALIST CATHOLIC REPORTER, CHRIS MATHEWS, CHALLENGES NEW POPE AND GET HIS HEAD HANDED TO HIM ON A PLATTER. LONG READ–WELL WORTH YOUR TIME
    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A CATHOLIC TO APPRECIATE THIS INTERVIEW WITH THE NEW POPE.
    The following is a transcript of an interview between CHRIS MATHEWS, MSNBC American journalist and then Cardinal Bergolio. It is clear why the interview was never broadcast. This Pope is a breath of fresh air; a very enlightening, clear understanding of social justice. It is clear that Matthews never understood or learned a thing.
    CAMERA ON / BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
    REPORTER: Welcome Cardinal.
    BERGOGLIO: Thank you. Happy to speak with you.
    REPORTER: Well, let me get into it directly. Last conclave, you were almost elected Pope. Can this happen again?
    BERGOGLIO: What? That I will almost be the Pope, again?
    REPORTER: No. Will you be the next Pope?
    BERGOGLIO: Friend, I’m only jesting with you. I understand the question. I will not be the next Pope

  • Francis is very careful with his use of rhetoric. Notice how he dodges questions.
    Lord have mercy.

  •  REPORTER: Why not?
    BERGOGLIO: I chose not to. God has someone else in mind I’m certain.
    REPORTER: But you would take the job if it were offered.
    BERGOGLIO: I think not.
    REPORTER: Why not.
    BERGOGLIO: I believe I’m too embroiled in the secular fiasco. It is a spiritual job, and I’m a soldier. Look at the nature of power. In Europe first and now in America, elected men have taken it upon themselves to indebt their people to create an atmosphere of dependency. And why? For their own selfish need to increase their own personal power. I’ve been a keen observer of the effect this has on the people, especially the poor. They are very good at creating poverty where there is no reason to explain it. My job is try to alleviate poverty and if that means to oppose the cause then I will not be Pope.
    REPORTER: But you are worried you would be a spend thrift pope?
    BERGOGLIO: Friend. Where did you go to school?
    REPORTER: La Salle College High School in Pennsylvania and.
    BERGOGLIO: And after that?
    REPORTER: College of the Holy Cross.
    BERGOGLIO: They told me you were Catholic. Once elected the Pope is by virtue of the promise of Jesus to Peter, the Pope is preserved from the possibility of error. God would change any spend thrift politician into a responsible Pope. I’m just saying I’m not that man.

    Notice how he turns tables on the reporter. aka "Where did you go to school?"

  • Chris Matthews is not the smartest bunny in the hutch.  It doesn't surprise me that even another simpleton can best him.

    Matthews is the same guy who said he had a warm and fuzzy feeling about Obama.

    After asking him, "Where did you go to school?" he might also want to ask him, "Did you graduate?" :laugh1: :laugh1: :laugh1:

  •  REPORTER: So what is your job?
    BERGOGLIO: My job is to ask you? Why are men creating poverty?
    REPORTER: What do you mean?
    BERGOGLIO: I mean that poverty is part of the natural condition and that is bad enough. But my task is to prevent the aggravation of this condition. The ideology that adds to the poverty must be denounced. I have and this is the reason I will not be Pope. I have a saying for myself, no more poverty than God originally intended in the fall from Grace?
    REPORTER: Oh.
    BERGOGLIO: It is a spiritual choice, and I’m a political person. I’m sorry. I know you will make more money from this interview if I’m Pope. Or want to be Pope. But I’m sorry. I can’t help you. God has already chosen someone anyway. Right? You learned this in school?

  •  REPORTER: Yes. Well? Where are you on the issues that matter most, issues about contraception, women priests?
    BERGOGLIO: This might be a surprise to you, but I am Catholic. We are Catholic. It isn’t an issue and for you to pretend that it is being debated goes against God.
    REPORTER: If you were Pope, then you would not change anything.
    BERGOGLIO: Certainly God would direct the new Pope to have more compassion for these newly created poor. And if there is any social justice in the Church, the new Pope would have a stern word for the creators of the new situation.
    REPORTER: But you are staunchly orthodox on the issues of abortion, contraception, and same-sex marriage.
    BERGOGLIO: I am catholic.
    REPORTER: You were punished for opposed same-sex marriage in Argentina. You opposed free contraception and the government exiled you. What do you have to say about that?
    BERGOGLIO: I am catholic.


    http://angelqueen.org/2013/04/13/interview-with-pope-before-he-was-pope/

    Please note that when he was cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis (then Cardinal Bergoglio) was punished for his opposition to same-sex marriage. Amoris Laetitiae also says that there will be no same-sex marriage in the Catholic Church. There was a very hostile relationship between the Church and the Argentine Peronist government during Cardinal Bergoglio's tenure in Buenos Aires.

  •  REPORTER: In the secular world, as you say, you follow the conservative line. You oppose, uh, same-sex marriages, very popular with young people. You are conservative on birth control. Won’t that be the doom of the Church, alienating young people who support reality based faith?
    BERGOGLIO: Since God created the world, he also created reality. You seem to be arguing that a man can’t be Catholic in reality. Son, you are a Catholic?
    REPORTER: Yes, of course. I meant no disrespect
    BERGOGLIO: You don’t have to worry about offending me.
    REPORTER: Okay, good. Can a, uh, Pope even be elected if he is pro-choice or pro-love? I mean isn’t the election sort of fixed in favor of anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage?
    BERGOGLIO: Yes, the election is fixed by God.
    REPORTER: Very witty.
    BERGOGLIO: Well, you did ask.
    REPORTER: It is being reported in America that you are against marriage equality. Is that why you feel that you can’t be Pope?
    BERGOGLIO: God chooses the Pope, and God also made men and women different.

    Notice how he kind of zapps this reporter and points out the truth of the Catholic Faith.

  • What happened to Pope Francis?
    You could see a change in approach almost immediately after the conclave. When Kirchner flew to Rome to congratulate the new Pope Francis, many reporters who were aware of the situation in Argentina were waiting to see the sparks fly. Instead, he received her very cordially.

  • EPORTER: But you are… a conservative and oppose abortion!
     BERGOGLIO: Friend the expression on your face gives you away.
    REPORTER: I’m sorry, I’m just trying to do my job.
    BERGOGLIO: And what job is that?
    REPORTER: I’ve been sent to interview eight men in line for the papacy.
    BERGOGLIO: And I guarantee you that they all oppose abortion. So?
    REPORTER: But?
    BERGOGLIO: So, you feel like you need to alienate the eight from the flock?
    REPORTER: That isn’t it. How can the church attract young people when it is opposed to abortion and contraception?
    BERGOGLIO: Young people are just as attracted to the truth as they are convenience and expediency. So we will call it a draw.

    It is just as I have said, the young people want what is authentic.
