Jimma Carter Lectured The Pope

Jimmy Carter be hating on Pope John Paul II.
The former president said that he complained to the Pontiff about the Church’s “perpetuation of the subservience of women” while Blessed John Paul II was visiting the US in 1978, and “there was more harshness when we turned to the subject of ‘liberation theology.” Carter said that he classified the Pope as a “fundamentalist,” placing him in that category along with Iran’s late Ayatollah Khomeini.

In the same interview Carter said that “it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies,” although he suggested—“maybe arbitrarily”—that churches should not be required by law to solemnize same-sex unions.

Carter made his remarks as he introduced a new edition of the Bible with his own study notes, helping readers to follow his understanding of the Scriptures.
That last line made me laugh out loud!!

Jimmy Carter is a jackass.

  1. Because . . . the world is clamoring for Jimmy's take on Scripture? That's one healthy ego he's got there.

    (I wonder whether he really lectured JPII or is just making it up.)

  2. So the most ineffective president of the 20th century "lectured" a saint-among-us. Hmm. That worked out well ...

  3. A Jimmy Carter Study Bible!? Won't the Protestants ever quit issuing these so-called study bibles? All of these things pander and cater to a particular slant or interpetation of the Scriptures. They are, by their very nature, sectarian and partisan. The Scofield is the most famous of these 'Bibles', and it's so sectarian and partisan, that it's completely out of touch with even classic Protestantism, let alone the Catholic faith.

  7. Jimmy Carter signed on to the Tri Lateral Commission while in England after election and before inauguration making him president. The Tri Lateral Commission is for the one world government. Jimmy Carter wasn't even a president, yet he made, ratified, consummated, and signed away America's sovereignty to the Tri Lateral Commission for all of his constituents who had yet to become his constitutents. Tyranny before tyranny. Tyranny before our founding principles. Tyranny before our constitution. Tyranny before JUSTICE. Holy Scripture. As Dr. Watson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous character in Sherlock Holmes used to say when he encountered pure evil: "Saints preserve us" and the saints did preserve us...from Jimmy Carter. Now, the saints must preserve us from Barack Obama.

  8. Jimma Carter was, is, and will probably always be a nitwittian, theologically. He fooled me into voting for him once, but I learned my lesson, I've never voted democrat again. JPII must have had the patience of Job, to have to be "lectured" by such an ignoramus.

  9. Anon at 3:12 pm, thanks for the link to the ASB. I still stand by what I said about the Prot study Bibles. They are sectarian and partisan.

  10. I am so sorry to say that Jimma Carter was also a Submarine salor. A slap in the face of every Sub salor the world over. You know Admiral Rickover had to approve every submarine officer that served in the "former silent" service. I think he was paid off on Jimma Carter. As a qualified submarine salor I cringe at the mention of his name. In addition he damaged the submarine service as president.

  11. Mary De Voe, the Trilateral Commission is a thinktank of economists. It has no actual power—its influence is no different from that of any other thinktank—and is no more a threat to US sovereignty than, well, the Vatican.

    Certainly, Jimmy Carter's internationalist imbecility was in line with the thinking of the Commission's members, but the Commission itself wields no power whatsoever. Which is good, as they do espouse horribly bad ideas.

  12. I hear this and I just laugh. It's the best response to such nonsense.

  13. Given that the liberation theology controversies during the pontificate of John Paul II did not really flare up until 1984 and 1986, how likely is it that an American baptist was sufficiently engaged to have a harsh debate in 1978?

    Sounds like BS to me.

  14. Sophia's Favorite: If the Trilateral Commission has no power why was Jimma Carter signing us up for it? My idea of the Trilateral Commission was formed by the National Catholic Register. Try the archives.and Jay Rockerfella's population control group with Holy Cross Father, Theodore Hesburg,President of Notre Dame morphed into the United Nations International Population control group. Maybe I will look it up myself.

  15. Sorry that this truely decent person knocked your mysogenistic and homophobic religious world view. Time to rename him Jimma (really?), and lynch him? I don't understand the name calling really.

    Jimmy Carter has never met a homocidal tyrant that he doesn't like....and he prefers the election habits of the Soviet KGB to the US'....what a creep; what an idiot; what a communist.

  19. It would be truer to say that Jimmy Carter "played into the hands" of the Trilateral Commission, in pursuing internationalist, anti-sovereignty policies. Or "was duped by". To say he signed over our sovereignty to the Commission implies that they now exercise de facto sovereignty over this country, which they certainly do not, and never did, not even at the height of their power.

    They, like the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations, are think-tanks that can put a lot of money and intellectual capital into abominable policies, but they don't directly do anything. Hence my comparison to the Vatican—the Pope doesn't really have much worldly power at all, his power is principally in swaying the hearts and minds of those who do have worldly power. Though the Vatican has far less money than virtually any think-tank.

  20. Pablo: I'll answer your question with a joke.

    A child was sitting by the sidewalk with a sign "Free Christian Kittens". A week later, the sign changed to "Free Atheist Kittens". A passerby asked the difference. The kid said "Their eyes are open now".

    I am married and my wife is Catholic. Not much queer or hate there, but attacking Jimmy by name calling and his inclusivenes when he wants to be decent to his fellow citizens is sad.

  21. As a fellow Georgian and (sadly) a distant relative of Jimma (we share a common ancestor from colonial days) I feel I can call him a boob and a nitwit. Will go down as 1st or 2nd worst POTUS ever.

  22. Sophia's Favorite. Jimmy Carter did not have our soverignty until after he was inaugurated. What Jimmy Carter did was aid and abet, by promising the Trilateral Commission the power of America to their horrific ideas. Any power the Trilateral Commission had was given them by the countries who "signed on". Today the one world government under the world bank is alive and well and contradicted by the Vatican's one world government under GOD. An infinite God of Glory and Majesty instead of a mortgage company. And the idea of the all powerful bank is still centered in England and America. It is no coincidence. Incidentally, the European Union failed and so will the one world government under the mortgage company fail because without our Creator, God almighty in WHOM we trust, there is no substance to any authentic authority, law or leadership. When Jimmy Carter signed on, that is, gave ascent to the Trilateral Commission, he gave ascent to one world government under the mortgage company. Thank God, The National Catholic Register kept its hand on the pulse of American politics and called out the tar and feathers, so to speak. You know, Sophia's Favorite, that our country needs the tar and feathers now more than ever. It is time for FREEDOM. Don't sign me up unless I authorize it.

  23. P.S. Congress ratifies treaties according to the will of the people. That is consitutional. With Obamacare the will of the people be damned.

  24. The former president said that he complained to the Pontiff about the Church’s “perpetuation of the subservience of women”
    Man, fully alive, is the glory of God. Woman, fully alive, is the glory of man. If woman is subserviant, it is to whom? to man. It must be to God alone all persons must answer. It is man who loses his glory. In honoring the Blessed Virgin, the Catholic Church honors all Mothers, virgins and women. But what would Jimmy Carter know about that? Roslyn Carter is still pro-abortion. Half the babies aborted are women.

    Homophobic, mysogenistic? Jimmy Carter, decent? The devil is a pure spirit with no soul. Only human beings have souls. Abortion deprives the human soul of its human body. (What God has joined together let no man put asunder). If it were up to Jimmy and Roslyn Carter, You, Pablo, would have been aborted. Face it.

  27. I don't agree with him lecturing Bl. John Paul II, but I think it is wrong and a sin against charity to call him- or anyone else- names.

The Protestant bibles call the Person of God, our Father, a "that" or a "which". When God, our Father, the Person of God in Whose image man, the human being, is created by our constitutional Creator, is denied His name "I AM WHO I AM", all persons who are given God's own name at conception, given "I AM", existence, are denied personhood and sovereignty. Who is like unto God to dare to deny God's sovereign personhood?

  31. "perpetuation of the subservience of women"...? Yeah, that's a laugh. After living the live of a supposedly free woman for many years I converted in 1990. One of the many things about the Church that had grabbed my attention was the fact that the first time I felt truly valued as a person by men was when I met truly Catholic men. I was given respect simply because I existed, and because I am the beloved of God. Up until then I was just a means to an end. Mr. Carter, John Paul II understood more about women and respected them more than you and your liberal lot combined ever have or ever will.

    That is kind of clever, well played.
