to be fair, all of Prager's positions are needed to preserve American Values, which are the Last Best Hope of Earth. Since the fate of the Earth depends on him, we must allow him some inconsistencies.

Like all of Prager's principles, the one against boycotts lasted up until he wants to boycott something.
they are not true Christians, according to Prager. If you listen to Prager talk about religion and morality long enough you will realize that what he is doing is defining Judeo-Christian religion and morality, and it turns out that the definition boils down to someone that follows the current policies of the Republican Party.
Pope Francis: "Let us protect Christ in our lives, so that we can protect others, protect creation. That means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world, as the Book of Genesis tells us and as St. Francis of Assisi showed us. It means respecting each of God's creatures and respecting the environment in which we live."

It's perfectly symbolic of his use of religion in general. He uses religion to make his own anger and vindictiveness look respectable, the same way he just used the Pope to make his hateful attitude toward Islam seem respectable. By the way, the Keith Ellison episode makes it clear that Prager hates Islam itself, and all the talk of terrorism is just a mask.

This is the first I've heard Prager talk about Pope Francis. Not to say he hasn't, but I just haven't heard it. Has anyone heard Prager address Francis's critique of capitalism, and especially of "trickle-down" economics?
Prager often expresses his largely negative view of humanity today. He tells us that human goodness is the exception, not the rule. So I wonder, maybe the Great Flood didn't work? Maybe Prager thinks God should do another one?
I also agree. Prager limits his commentary to this particular case. Like you said, he doesn't try to fit it into his running invective against "the left". Also, he mentions one of the cretin's race in passing, but wisely refrains from making a broad racial point. Also, when he talks about his desire for eye for eye justice, he limits himself to saying that's what he thinks they deserve. He doesn't, as he has in the past, argue that our justice system should actually be changed to operate that way.
the people of Venezuela voted for Maduro, but the Obama didn't like the way they voted so he refused to recongize him.
"favoring one model of parenting over others must yield to this country's cherished protections that ensure the exercise of the private choices of the individual citizen".
From the judge's ruling in the Virginia case: "Government interests in perpetuating traditions, shielding state matters from federal interference, and favoring one model of parenting over others must yield to this country’s cherished protections that ensure the exercise of the private choices of the individual citizen regarding love and family. "Ultimately, this is consistent with our nation’s traditions of freedom. “[T]he history of our Constitution … is the story of the extension of constitutional rights and protections to people once ignored or excluded.” United States v. Virginia, 518 U.S. 515, 557 (1996). Our nation’s uneven but dogged journey toward truer and more meaningful freedoms for our citizens has brought us continually to a deeper understanding of the first three words in our Constitution: we the people. “We the People” have become a broader, more diverse family than once imagined. Justice has often been forged from fires of indignities and prejudices suffered. Our triumphs that celebrate the freedom of choice are hallowed. We have arrived upon another moment in history when We the People becomes more inclusive, and our freedom more perfect."
