Traditionally, the Vatican has publicly stayed out of American politics.
While Pope Francis has been the most radical leftist Pope in the modern age, no one expected the Vatican’s position to change anytime soon.
But Pope Franics once again broke tradition and said one thing about the Presidential election that didn’t sit well with many Americans.
Throughout American history, the Vatican has made efforts to steer clear of American politics.
That stood in sharp contrast to the extensive influence of the papacy over Europe throughout the 1700 and 1800’s.
So it was rare that the Pope would become involved in anything directly pertaining to the United States.
In fact, the first Pope to actually visit the United States wasn’t even until 1965 with Pope Paul VI.
Even then, the Pope did not attempt to influence American politicians or voters.
Many hoped that Pope Francis would continue the Vatican’s position and stay out of American’s political affairs, especially this election year.
But Pope Francis threw that all to the wind when Biden’s transition team announced the Pope called Joe Biden and “extended blessings and congratulations and noted his appreciation.”
The story doesn’t end there though.
Biden also thanked Pope Francis for his “leadership in promoting peace, reconciliation and the common bonds of humanity around the world.”
It can’t go unmentioned that Pope Francis has been a recurrent promoter of socialism during his time in the Vatican.
Despite the Pope deciding to acknowledge a Biden victory before the results were ever certified, Bishops across the United States have refused to recognize either Biden or Trump as President-elect.
The Pope’s statements and behavior all came as a huge blow to the President who is still working tirelessly to ensure American voters receive the fair and honest election they deserve.
However, none of this dissuaded Pope Francis from prematurely congratulating Joe Biden who would be the second “Catholic” to ever sit in the oval office.
And if Joe Biden wins the election, it’s safe to say that won’t be their last phone call to discuss the advancing of their radical leftist policies around the world.
