Pope Francis is wrong on Falklands, says David Cameron.
New pope was wrong to say last year that Britain had ‘usurped’ islands from Argentina, says prime minister. Less than 48 hours into the world’s first Latin American papacy.
David Cameron took issue in public with Pope Francis on Friday, quipping that the “white smoke over the Falklands was pretty clear” and dismissing the pontiff’s explicit claims backing Argentinian ownership of the South Atlantic islands.
As archbishop of Buenos Aires, the new pope had frequently laid claim to Argentinian dominion over the Falklands, describing them as part of Argentina’s homeland. He had presided over religious ceremonies commemorating his countrymen’s servicemen who died in the 1982 war following the junta’s invasion of the islands.
“I don’t agree with him, respectfully, obviously,” Cameron said when asked about Pope Francis’s views on the Falklands.

If the Roman Catholic Church had been the servant of God of the Bible, this organization would not be occupied by worldly politics.
The Papacy has been the ruler over Kings and Queens, since its establishment around 350 A.D. When you get involved in “Caesar’s business”, you will obviously make enemies.
Jesus the Messiah was above politics, and concerned about the Kingdom of Heaven. The Papacy is the seat of a fleshy, created being, a fake authority claiming to be the “Vicar of Christ”.
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
In regards to the new Argentinian Pope, he obviously had to take the side of the Fascist military dictators. Also in regards to the Argentinian demands for control of the Falkland Islands.
That seems to be safe play….as long as you did not need the support of Catholics in the United Kingdom….
Now where are their loyalty?
With the Papacy, or with their Queen?
It is always difficult to get it both ways….
