The Soviet Union realized back in the thirties that the most dangerous element facing it was religion. And violent attack against “the Church” would not have worked. So, they figured out a different approach. They created Social Justice Warrior philosophy within religion and directed that effort toward third or second world populations. The communists are a patient group, twenty or thirty years of quiet corruption is just fine with them, as long as it works in the end. Out of this effort came some serious socialists and communists, who somehow claim to be both religious and communists at the same time. One of them is the Pope’s right hand man. The Pope himself is a hard line socialist, which makes him dangerous to free societies like ours. You would think anyone who had any knowledge of the hundreds of millions of people murdered and imprisoned by Communists would reject the concept. But then again, where’s the money in that?
After Pope Francis early in his papacy decried capitalism as “trickle-down economics” — a polemical phrase coined by the left during the Reagan years that Francis frequently borrows — radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh commented, “This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the Pope.” Talk show host Michael Savage called him “Lenin’s pope.” Pope Francis took such comments as a compliment. “I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended,” he told the Italian press.
Pope Francis grew up in socialist Argentina, an experience that left a deep impression on his thinking. He told the Latin American journalists Javier Camara and Sebastian Pfaffen that as a young man he “read books of the Communist Party that my boss in the laboratory gave me” and that “there was a period where I would wait anxiously for the newspaper La Vanguardia, which was not allowed to be sold with the other newspapers and was brought to us by the socialist militants.”
The “boss” to whom Pope Francis referred is Esther Ballestrino de Careaga. He has described her as a “Paraguayan woman” and a “fervent communist.” He considers her one of his most important mentors. “I owe a huge amount to that great woman,” he has said, saying that she “taught me so much about politics.” (He worked for her as an assistant at Hickethier-Bachmann Laboratory in Buenos Aires.)
“She often read Communist Party texts to me and gave them to me to read. So I also got to know that very materialistic conception. I remember that she also gave me the statement from the American Communists in defense of the Rosenbergs, who had been sentenced to death,” he has said. Learning about communism, he said, “through a courageous and honest person was helpful. I realized a few things, an aspect of the social, which I then found in the social doctrine of the Church.” As the archbishop of Buenos Aires, he took pride in helping her hide the family’s Marxist literature from the authorities who were investigating her. According to the author James Carroll, Bergoglio smuggled her communist books, including Marx’s Das Kapital, into a “Jesuit library.”
Holy Papal Batman! What is going on here? Remember, this is not about religion, this is about controlling a religion that was essential in the overthrow of the Communist government in USSR. Pope John Paul worked with Reagan to destroy the Polish communist government and set the USSR on its heels.
He can say he’s not a hard line socialist but the facts are clearly on the table. He bugged Trump about the environment. The environmental cause is about two things, seizing taxes for government and controlling people’s activities. A selling point for lesser societies is the promise of payment by the first world controllers to third world countries to “help them” with their environmental issues. We all know that money would never get past their corrupt government officials and probably a good number of religious leaders.
One of the major people influencing a not so bright Pope (does he have a degree in climate studies himself?) is Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo.
VATICAN CITY, July 16, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) – Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Science and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, spoke at a press conference Wednesday morning pushing, among other things, redistribution of weath.
Discussing a joint symposium July 22 with the United Nations’ initiative the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (headed by abortion and population control advocate Jeffrey Sachs), Sorondo justified the Vatican’s collaboration with the UN, claiming, “The United Nations is not the devil.”
The symposium will include around 60 mayors from around the world, consisting entirely of the political left. This fact was not lost on at least one journalist, who asked Sorondo whether the “exclusive presence of mayors of the left of center is not a sign of partiality.” Sorondo responded, “The invitation is open to everyone.”
This marks the second event organized by the pontifical academy that involves major UN representatives. The first was the Vatican summit on global warming, held in April, which also included Jeffrey Sachs as keynote speaker along with UN general secretary Ban Ki-Moon, another well-known proponent of abortion and population control, who gave the opening speech. The academy came under heavy criticism from Catholic media for the prominent role these abortion advocates played at the climate change conference. Both men were invited by Sorondo.
Sorondo was also responsible for systematically removing or preventing climate change skeptics from attendance at the global warming summit. Philippe de Larminat, a scientist from Nantes, France, registered for the conference and bought a plane flight to Rome, after assurance by Cardinal Peter Turkson that he was welcome. But five days before the event he was told there was no room for him.
It turned out that Sorondo was the one who vetoed de Larminat’s presence. When asked why, he wrote, “because he’s not an academic authority in this field, neither a religious authority nor a UN authority.”
But other climate change skeptics also met the same fate, screened out and prevented from attending the conference. “They didn’t want to hear any other opinion,” de Larminat said.
Lord Christopher Monckton, a British journalist and former policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher, was the only skeptic to make it through — but only based on his press credentials as a journalist. Once Sorondo discovered Monckton’s position against anthropogenic climate change, he promptly had him removed.
Now there’s a good Catholic, a man who wants to hear from all voices in this very important issue…oh..sorry.
Who is this guy? He is a “warrior” for social justice and uses the environment in an attempt to seize money and control. Why is anyone listening to him? Hopefully, Trump will take anything the Pope says about the environment with a grain of salt.. or maybe a pound or two.
Because it is, and has always been, about the money. Robes or not.
