Publisher's Summary

The untold story of the Left's efforts to politicize the Vatican and the battle to stop it - before the Catholic Church as we know it is destroyed.

Pope Francis is the most liberal pope in the history of the Catholic Church. He is not only championing the causes of the global Left but also undermining centuries-old Catholic teaching and practice. In the words of the late radical Tom Hayden, his election was "more miraculous, if you will, than the rise of Barack Obama in 2008".

But to Catholics in the pews, his pontificate is a source of alienation. It is a pontificate, at times, beyond parody: Francis is the first pope to approve of adultery, flirt with proposals to bless gay marriages and cohabitation, tell atheists not to convert, tell Catholics to not breed "like rabbits", praise the Koran, support a secularized Europe, and celebrate Martin Luther.

At a time of widespread moral relativism, Pope Francis is not defending the church's teachings but diluting them. At a time of Christian persecution, he is not strengthening Catholic identity but weakening it. Where other popes sought to save souls, he prefers to "save the planet" and play politics, from habitual capitalism bashing to his support for open borders and pacifism.

In The Political Pope, George Neumayr gives listeners what the media won't: a bracing look at the liberal revolution that Pope Francis is advancing in the church. To the radical academic Cornel West, "Pope Francis is a gift from heaven". To many conservative Catholics, he is the worst pope in centuries.

    "Truth Speaks!"

    Nice that the author had the courage to reveal the insidious goings on within the current pontificate.

    "Great book!! But many mispronunciations"

    The book itself was great. The narrators voice was pleasant but many words were mispronounced.

    Story
    "Confirmed my suspension"

    Confirmed my observations of Pope Francis and my parish priest who
    Is uber liberal and preaches social justice which is code for Liberation Theology. I am leaving the Catholic Church until it returns to the gospel teaching and not socialism/communism.

    Story
    "Not Reliable"

    Reads like a book-length version of "The Wanderer" newspaper. Exaggerates, makes improbable inferences, distorts facts.

    Story
    "I couldn't disagree more."

    I never write reviews but made an exception for this book. While the author has a right to his opinion, I couldn't disagree more with his conclusions. The Catholic Church needs to be changed and Pope Francis has the courage and wisdom to lead the way. I finally feel like I belong in the Catholic Church. I think I'll stay.
