So, the National Football League gave Pope Francis a free commercial at this year's Super Bowl. What was the Pope's message from the biggest pulpit on the planet? HINT: He forgot to mention Jesus Christ again.
By the way, Lady Gaga had a starring role at the Super Bowl, too, which didn't stop the Vatican from endorsing the event. Is the new and improved Vatican okay with Gaga?
Generally speaking, why is the NFL so eager to give the Holy Father free access to their massive Super Bowl audience? Why do they love Pope Francis so much? Why did Hillary Clinton tell the world to embrace the message of Pope Francis? Is it because he’s leading sinners back to Christ?
Plus, great news from one of the most conservative Catholic colleges in America.
The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country. They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline. Multiple comments from one person under a story are also discouraged. Capitalized sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).
The Remnant comments sections are not designed for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes between commenters. Please understand that we pay our writers to defend The Remnant’s editorial positions. We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website. Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.

The Remnant is pro-family, pro-life, pro-Catholic across the board, which is why it is hated by the far-Left and has even been targeted by powerful Liberal lobby groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center. We need your help if there's to be a Catholic response to universal Christophobia that really matters.
