Will Blockbuster "Government Zero" See Michael Savage Banned from Vatican?

For those of us who complained about the cost of the Pope's recent visit, we were reminded that he is a head of state, and that the Vatican is a sovereign country (basically, "Shut up, this is diplomatic protocol."). I asked my own radio audience why we have never had a multi-million dollar parade for Billy Graham. When I started reading estimates of the overall cost of the Papal visit reaching nearly a half a billion dollars, I could not believe it. And for what? So he could kiss a few babies, trade his hat with a few people (yes, considered a rare honor), and teach us humility by being driven around in a compact car after disembarking from his chartered Airbus?

"Pope Francis is different, because he is not a spiritual leader. He is a political operative, with all of the earmarks of having been handpicked for his office..." Michael Savage

Savage Already Banned From The United Kingdom

Michael Savage was banned from the United Kingdom in 2009 - "Considered to be engaging in unacceptable behavior by seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred which might lead to inter-community violence." After our review of his latest book, ChristianMoney.com wonders if the next state ban for Savage will be Vatican City.

The Pope Is A Zero?

In his book, Government Zero, radio talk show host Michael Savage includes a chapter he calls 'Zero Religion,' subtitled 'Lenin's Pope.' Savage begins the chapter by defending both Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Pius XII (it was refreshing to read an accurate account of Pope Pius' activities during World War II). I can't believe how many educated people still buy into the oversimplified account of Pope Pius working as an ally of Hitler. Savage quickly changes his tact, however, and goes on the offensive: "Pope Francis is different, because he is not a spiritual leader. He is a political operative, with all of the earmarks of having been handpicked for his office..."  Savage goes much further than simply making a comparison between Pope Francis and Vladmir Lenin; he even titles a paragraph 'Channeling Lenin.' In case the reader doesn't yet fully appreciate how impassioned his views are on the current pope, he later adds, "Not only is he advocating thoroughly discredited socialistic theories, he's completely misinformed on the economic conditions he says he wants to improve."

"When Al Gore left office as vice president of the United States in 2001, his net worth was less than $2 million. By 2013 it was estimated at over $300 million. He's made it all on climate change and other left-wing scams..." Michael Savage

The pope's advocacy of global warming is another important theme of this chapter. Savage lays bare the financial scam behind global warming. When Al Gore left office as vice president of the United States in 2001, his net worth was less than $2 million. By 2013 it was estimated at over $300 million. He's made it all on climate change and other left-wing scams...

The problem many Catholics may have with Savage's book is that the facts are on his side. I can only imagine the vetting this portion of the book went through with his publisher. After finishing this chapter, I found myself feeling a little sorry for the pope, and you get the sense that Savage may, as well; he writes, in part, "I am not saying the pope is evil..," as he compares him to the masses of 'well meaning' leftists in our own country.

Pope Francis Much More Than A Footnote In Government Zero

Savage's chapter on Pope Francis represents nearly ten percent of the page count of his new book. As an author myself, I know firsthand the dynamics of working with a publisher. I don't think it is by accident that this most explosive, and politically incorrect, chapter is 'buried' squarely in the middle of its 368 pages. The chapter title (which perhaps should have been Pope Zero not Zero Religion), also seems to have been an attempt to soften the blow. As is the case with Savage's other books, you will not likely find it front and center in your bookstore. Your local bookseller will hold their nose while they gladly take your money at the register. They will quickly put your book in a bag, so other customers won't be startled by the sight of it as you make your exit.
