Francis endorses Liberation TheologyOn November 22, 2014, at the end of an audience granted to the participants of the IV National Missionary Congress of Italy, Pope Bergoglio warmly greeted Fr. Gustavo Gutierrez, considered the father of Liberation Theology, above.
Francis had already received Gutierrez in September 2013, but in a private audience without photos. Now, the papal endorsement of that communist theology becomes unrestrained and overt. We can note the joy manifested by Francis in the encounter, expressing his adhesion to the ideas of Gutierrez.
Bergoglio's communist bent is becoming increasingly clear, as proved by the cartoon below, approvingly published in the German newspaper Neues Deutschland (New Germany), organ of the Socialist Party of Germany, which governed Communist East Germany until the fall of the Berlin Wall and is still around. It depicts Marx, Engels and Francis as the main representative leaders of its communist party line.
