Francis and Obama: together on Palestine, Liberation Theology, and Marxism

So within the same week we have both the pope and Obama supporting Palestine, Liberation theology, and Marxism. A coincidence that he's coming to the US in September? Nope.
Francis had a one-hour meeting with Raul Castro on May 10. The day before, Castro had greeted Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. Francis will visit Cuba in September prior to his tour of the United States.
The evidence is getting too big for the major media to ignore: the pope has made common cause with the forces of international Marxism, which are associated with atheism, the suppression of traditional Christianity, and the persecution and murder of Christians...
Benedict had also been a strong opponent of Liberation Theology.
As Herreid put it in his Blaze column, “In a matter of months, Pope Francis has announced a desire to ‘quickly’ beatify a deceased liberation theologist bishop, reconciled with a Sandinista activist priest who once called Ronald Reagan a ‘butcher’ and an ‘international outlaw,’ and even invited the founder of the liberation theology movement, Rev. Gustavo GutiĆ©rrez, to speak on the need for a ‘poor Church for the Poor’ at an official Vatican event this week.”
In fact, this is the latest example of Francis welcoming advocates of Liberation Theology—a doctrine manufactured by the old KGB to dupe Christians into supporting Marxism—directly into the Vatican.

Even the pope’s arrival in Bethlehem — by helicopter straight from Jordan — carried important symbolic significance. Past papal visits to the West Bank previously have come through Israel, which captured the territory in the 1967 Mideast war.
“Coming to Bethlehem and flying to Bethlehem from Jordan shows solidarity with the Palestinian people, which is wonderful. We need that,” said Samar Sakkakin, a 52-year-old Palestinian American from Canton, Michigan.
“I am with you,” he told a group of Palestinian children at a stop in Bethlehem’s Deheishe refugee camp. He also held a private lunch with five Palestinian families who say they have been harmed by Israeli policies.

Breitbart  reports on Obama's Georgetown University remarks:
He argued that churches should spend more time pursuing “powerful” ideas such as helping those in poverty in order to attract more followers.
“Nobody has shown that better than Pope Francis, who I think has been transformative just through the sincerity and insistence that this is vital to who we are, this is vital to following what Jesus Christ our Savior talked about.”
Obama added that he hoped that the American people received that message when Pope Francis visits the United States in September.
“I can’t wait to host him because I think it will help to spark an even broader conversation of the sort we are having today,” Obama concluded.
End quote.

Is it any wonder that Rick Warren embraces both of these men? They all have the same ideology and at the heart of it they are all anti-Christ, pushing socialism as the new religion.
