The tagline above Francis’ picture reads, “Collapse of the faithful, scandals, ethics, gay, immigrants and ISIS-Islam How many errors. Now the purges. The popularity of Francis of collapses”.
The headline is, “Il Papocchio”, which is a play on words in Italian. In 1980 a blasphemous film was released with the title ‘Il pap'occhio’ (literally - in the pope’s eye), this headline is an allusion to the film and the fact that even though Francis is popular with the mainstream medias he isn’t very popular among Italians.
Francis is repeating the same behaviors he exhibited in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he alienated his flock and fellow countrymen with his reign of mistrust and lies. As we wrote of in his time in Argentina and the people of Italy are coming to realize, Francis “is a man sick with power.”
