Pope Compares Politicians Opposed to Gays, Jews To Hitler
By Julio Severo
Pope Francis denounced the persecution of homosexuals on November 15, 2019, and compared politicians who “stoke hatred and anti-gay sentiment” to Hitler.
Francis delivered his remarks at an international conference on criminal law at the Vatican City.
“It is not coincidental that at times there is a resurgence of symbols typical of Nazism,” he said. “And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech (by) someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936.”
He said persecution against Jews and “people with homosexual tendencies” represented a “culture that throws people away.”
“These are actions that are typical of Nazism, which with its persecution of Jews, Gypsies, people with homosexual orientation, represent an excellent model of the culture of hatred that throws people away. That is what was done in those days and today it is happening again,” Francis said.
He did not single out any particular politician or government.
There are two categories of governments and societies as far as homosexuality is concerned. There are governments and societies that torture and kill homosexuals. Even though Islamic nations as Saudi Arabia and Iran are prominent examples, the reality is that in a lesser or bigger degree all Islamic societies tend to persecute and kill homosexuals.
And there are governments and societies that do not torture and kill homosexuals.
Yet, Francis did not address Islamic nations that kill homosexuals. He seems to imply that politicians, probably Christian politicians in the United States, who fight against the gay agenda are imitating Nazism.
Pope’s accusation seems to have targeted evangelical politicians. But his effort to make opposition to homosexuality equal to opposition to Jews is futile in the American context, because U.S. evangelicals are shining examples of defense of family against the homosexual agenda and defense of Israel and the Jews against left-wing and Islamic persecution. No one in the whole world defends more Israel and the Jews than American evangelicals do.
However, there is a massive group that fits perfectly in the pope’s description: Muslims. Usually, Muslim cultures oppose homosexuals and Jews, and not rarely they kill homosexuals and Jews — not mentioning Christians.
Because Pope Francis did not specify his accusation by naming Muslims as imitators of Nazism — and by the way, the Hitler autobiography is a best-seller in Islamic nations —, the public may feel in the dark about his real target.
Nazism persecuted the Jews totally, but it did not persecute homosexuals totally. According to Dr. Lothar Machtan in his book “The Hidden Hitler,” Hitler was a homosexual. And according to Scott Lively in his book “The Pink Swastika,” the Nazi elite was homosexual. Because the predominant Nazi homosexuality was “macho,” they hated and persecuted effeminate homosexuals.
Even today, there are hostility between homosexual groups.
If Francis is really a left-wing Catholic who likes the Jews, could not he give some attention to these left-wing Jews?
If a group kills effeminate homosexuals, it is similar to Nazis. This is not the case of evangelical politicians, but it is the case of Muslims.
If a group of homosexuals imposes a fascist ideology on society, it is similar to Nazis.
Hitler’s Nazi regime in Germany persecuted and killed millions of Jews, from 1933-45, and had an elaborate array of death camps, which were copied from what Catholic Spain, a champion of the Inquisition, did to Catholic Cuba in the late 1800s.
Who admires Hitler for what he did to the Jews? Muslims, not American evangelicals.
Why didn’t Francis target Muslims? Is he afraid of them?
To insinuate that U.S. evangelicals are “stoking hatred and anti-gay sentiment” with their necessary campaigns against homosexual indoctrination in schools and TV, while the pope totally spares homosexual-killing Muslims, is insane.
To insinuate that U.S. evangelicals are “stoking hatred and anti-gay sentiment” with their necessary campaigns against the fascist homosexual ideology, while the pope totally spares homosexual-killing Muslims, is insane.
To compare pro-Israel and pro-family evangelicals in the U.S. to Hitler is similarly insane.
Francis owes a public apology to U.S. evangelicals.
The pope needs better advisers to understand homosexuality in Nazism and Hitler, and to understand that evangelical politicians in the United States defend Israel and the Jews and the family against the homosexualist threats without killing homosexuals.
