Dear Pope: Jesus Himself Manufactured a Weapon; Is Christ Not Christian?

Pope Francis recently proclaimed that it is impossible to be a Christian and a weapons manufacturer at the same time, as The PolitiStick’s Greg Campbell reported on Monday, taking a clear shot at America’s Bill of Rights.

Setting aside the hypocrisy of the Pope and the Vatican surrounded by “evil” armed guards holding weapons that were manufactured by some human who may be a Christian, there’s a larger issue with the Pope’s latest venture into leftist politics.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ once righteously manufactured a weapon, and it wasn’t just used for self-defense. He used it to remove the “money changers” from the temple.

So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.” John 2:15, Holy Bible (NIV)

Now it wasn’t a gun, as technology hadn’t advance that far 2000 years ago. But it was a “whip,” the weapon of choice during the time. Yes, Pope Francis, Jesus himself manufactured His own weapon to be used against other human beings.

Is Pope Francis saying that Jesus isn’t a Christian since He manufactured a weapon?

This isn’t the only time that Pope Francis, sounding like  Karl Marx rather than the leader of the world’s largest Christian church, has stepped out of bounds in his latest pronouncements. He’s also jumped on the Global Warming/Climate Change scam bandwagon, falling firmly into the Saul Alinsky camp, promoting communism by using radical environmentalism.

With all due respect, Maybe Pope Francis should spend more time studying the Book of John instead of spewing the Communist Manifesto.
