....and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

"Populism is a doctrine that appeals to the interests and conceptions (such as hopes and fears) of the general population, especially when contrasting any new collective consciousness push against the prevailing status quo interests of any predominant political sector.[1]"

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; 
and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Romans,  16:18.

 "....Francis in Bolivia spells out his vision of a true revolution
"We do not love concepts or ideas; we love people."

The Pope then spoke for close to an hour, using many rhetorical devices to galvanize his audience and fill them with a sense of urgency. He repeated a number of times his call for what he called the “sacred rights” to the three “Ts” — tierra, techo y trabajo — or in English, the three “Ls” of land, lodging and labour — while offering a sober diagnosis of the failures of the current world economy to provide for the poorest. “Let’s not be afraid to say it,” he told the crowd to loud applause. “We need change; we want change.....".. etc etc etc.

"They bid those who listen to their doctrines to keep the commandments of the gospel, and to be meek and merciful and full of brotherly love. Thus they entice men on by teaching all good things and useful doctrine, but they poison by degrees and draw to perdition."

With the above words of Alexius Comnenus, a persecutor of the Christian Bogomils,  the Harlot condemned herself, already centuries ago, wonderfully fulfilling in this way the words of the Lord:

“For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” 
Matthew,  12:37
