Francis’ Popularity Continues to Wane in Italy — Salvini‘s Rises


Edit: Francis has his thousands but Salvini his ten thousands.

ITALY: Many Catholics do not want to follow Pope Francis when it comes to migration issues, but prefer to follow Italian Minister of the Interior Salvini - Caritas: "Many Catholics no longer see the Holy Father as a spiritual leader"

Rome (kath.net) Italy's Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is becoming the secret head of Catholics in Italy because of his line on  migration. So reports “Welt" on Friday. The occasion is the migration issues and the not uncontroversial line of the Vatican and Pope Francis, so fewer and fewer Catholics want to follow him in Italy. Luca Comodo, head of the Ipsos Polling Institute, says Salvini is becoming increasingly popular in Italy, as his party has risen from 17 to 30 percentage points, and more and more Catholics support the Minister of the Interior.

For the Catholics who attend mass at least once a week, support for Salvini has doubled, reaching almost 32 percent in July, but Pope Francis' popularity is steadily declining.

Oliviero Forti, who is responsible for migration at Caritas in Italy, says quite critically: "Many Catholics no longer perceive the Holy Father as a spiritual leader, on the contrary, in some cases, he is even accused of being too far from the problems that people face .”

Salvini himself presents himself as a savior of the "Christian democracy" in public. He was also spotted with a rosary. [its doubtful that being seen in public with a Rosary is a sign of insincerity.]

Francis is now likely to have felt the danger of the remoteness of his own message from reality. Most recently, he said on board a papal plane: "Every country has to regulate this with prudence and take in as many refugees as it can integrate, educate and put into work."

Francis is a radical Marxist. Actually, there is no anti Christian message in working toward world socialism. The problem is with the pushing of his radical sexual agenda and the marginalizing of the traditional family.

Not just in Italy. And for good reason.

Things are going pleasingly bad for the lewd (likely) atheist from Argentina. Now Wuerl the Girl has followed the calculating O'Malley and has also dropped out out of the WMF. Hopefully, somehow this clear Italian rejection of open border lunacy will speed the end of this disaster of a Pontificate (hopefully Bergoglio will be a second Honorius and get a rightful posthumous condemnation). Maybe he will get so angry he'll move to Germany, move in with Cardinal Marx, and enjoy the easier life of a ChurchTax boss bloated on simony.

Salvini became even more popular by abolishing the recent law whereby on official forms about children one had to list the names of "parent 1" and "parent 2". Salvini said from now one one would have to list the names of "father" and "mother". EXTREMELY popular measure!

Francis is a big Zero. I can’t wait until the next conclave.

News just in today from LifeSite website (the Catholic pro-life internet site), that the new substitute (sostituto) at the Vatican Secretariat of State, appointed this week by Pope Francis is from Venezuela and is....a very,very close friend of both Cardinal Maridiaga, and also Maridiaga's former auxiliary bishop,Pineda who is openly gay and caught in many scandals involving pedophilia with young boys and seminarians. The new substitute of the Secretariat of State is thus a close friend of one of the most evil and corrupt cardinals in the Church (Maridiaga), as well as a close personal friend of gayboy pervert former auxiliary bishop and now removed and disgraced Pineda. SURPRISE!!!
Did anyone think that Pope Francis would do anything other that pick another sleazy, pro-gay guy to fill the job vacated by the now Cardinal Becciu? Apparently this guy fits and fills the bill to be totally part of the agenda of Francis.
The good people in Italy hate Francis, much of the Catholic Church hates Francis. This appointment just proves that it's time for a groundswell to rise up and remove Francis....and his people...including his newest little pet from Venezuela.

They can't accuse him of being ineffective. He has managed to get the job done, in five years he has all but wrecked the church. These men are so brazen, the wind is at their backs, they know all power is theirs, there is no one to oppose them. Oh, Salvini (God bless him) is turning their heads, but Italy is filled with migrants, and they would have to have mass deportations to make a dent. Maybe it will happen, here's hoping. From here it looks like Italy and all of Europe are toast. But thanks to American Communists, we may all be toast. Christendom had a nice run while it lasted.

When Francis suddenly goes, either by God's hand or forced out by the good Cardinals and bishops, the "wind" will no longer be at their backs. They will be in a panic before the new Pope...100% opposite to Francis. They will be shaking in fear...literally as they await their exiles and punishments.

Salvini is popular and a hero for the Italians because he stopped the landing of migrants, Italy doesn't want to become another Greece, slave to Merkel.Long live Matteo!

I hate to put a dent on your hopes, but the reality check is that people are a mindless mob mentality. One day Christ is welcomed, the next day He is Crucified. All it takes is for the globalists to create an economic crisid for Italy, and then they can oust Salvini&co., and put in a "technocratic" government.
