Yes, there has been much written and recorded about their agenda and methodologies, basically the end justifies the means. Much of which is of course removed from public or private view by them as often as possible, while they theatrically present anther view and image of themselves, just as the institution they represent has and continuously does. Those who will not consider these realities, look them in the face and address the despotism they seek to establish, will certainly end up enslaved by the same. Just as biblical prophecy has foretold. The speech I have been and will continue to examine was given in the 1840's, so very much has happened and been put in place since then. We are now ever increasingly living under the thumb of Rome. Though few if any will consider or admit of such. So be it.

Continued speech of Lewis Charles Levin to the U.S. Congress with notes from post #278, my comments in blue.

Quote
I tell you, and I tell the nation, (for there is yet time to save it,) that the propagandists of Europe are colonizing this country; that the foreign population is being dexterously located, not only with the view to the holding of the balance of power in certain States, but with reference to the organization of new ones, under the peculiar influence of the Jesuits, who will spread their ample wings over them, go where they may. The Jesuit is not confined to the country; he is at home every where; his web is thrown over all; his power benumbs the soul and fetters the body; his victim is controlled, and moves, and acts, at the will of his master; and it is this master whom you propose to serve by the passage of this bill.

Sir, a Jesuit college or seminary are now familiar things, to be seen in all places, and daily increased, without exciting a sensation or giving birth to a remark. Habit reconciles us to evil, even when most odious and revolting in its features. But a gilded exterior makes evil a welcome object to our senses. We greet the man whose bland smiles cheer us, and whose flatteries gratify our vanity. Courtesy and learning both unite to render the Jesuit insinuating; and , had he no object but a single purpose of improving the intellect of mankind, he should receive the homage of my admiration. But even “education” may be purchased at to high a price. After all, can the knowledge inculcated by the Jesuit be called “education”? It is not, at least , the education of an American or of a free man. A republican, come from what quarter of the globe he may, ought to have his whole soul expanded to the utmost bounds of liberality - free, daring, energetic, and boundless in its soaring flight; feeling no throb he feared to utter; burning with no thought he dare not express.

This, sir, is the basis, the only basis, with no master but God, no superior but the laws, conscience for his guide, and reason for his counsellor.

If no other evil resulted to the American people but this system of servile education by the ambitious Jesuit, who seeks to control it, wrapping up the minds of our American youths in the eternal bondage of Egyptian darkness, it would be quite a sufficient inducement to put a curb on the evil, rather than to give loose rein to their designs by the passage of this bill.

Let it not be forgotten that this system of intellectual and moral bondage is only the means to a great ulterior end - and that is, political power and religious authority. Although the Popes have, at various periods in the history of the world, pretended to suppress the order of the Jesuits they have never failed to avail themselves of their aid as missionaries. They might be suppressed at home, but it was only to nerve them for fresh exertion in a distant land. It never was content with spiritual diffusion, but always struggles and pants to gain temporal power for its priestly head. We find no other religion but that of the pope concentrating its votes to accomplish political power. It is peculiar to Popery never to rest content till it incorporates its power with the civil government. We have the voice of history to instruct us in this fact, that a religion founded on the union of spiritual and temporal power will strive naturally to propagate that union, as indispensable to its perfection. Without political power, such religion is not only incomplete, but defective, deformed, and wanting in its natural members. Why is it so? Because the head of the Romish church is a temporal prince, of absolute power and infallible authority. Question his mandate, and excommunication follows. Disobey his behests, and lo! the rod of his vengeance falls on the culprit, both in this world and the future. The fountain of its honors, ministry, and functions, (spread where it may) is at Rome. The Pope, reformer though he be, is the head of all. From him flows the double stream of spiritual and temporal power, which, however it may divide itself for a season by the rugged face of foreign climes, never rests, but boils and bubbles forever, till it reunites, even through the impediments of blood, carnage, revolution, and rebellion. Its impetuous surges of ambition beat against every shore for the admission of its temporal power; and now, amidst the spreading lights of the 19th century, we are asked not only to recognize, but to send a minister plenipotentiary in advance, craving his Holiness to condescend, by creating a religious lie, to take us into his holy keeping. 

Gracious and just Heaven! to what direful ends will the passions and ambition of men hurry them! How inscrutable are the ways of God to test our virtue, and waken in our bosoms the divine emotions which led the noble men of other days to make such immortal sacrifices, when burning at the fiery stake, or dying under the tortures of the inquisition - when Smithfield celebrated her hellish orgies, or the rack tore the bleeding limbs of heroic martyrs at Madrid - or the massacre of the Huguenots deluged the fair fields of France with the best blood of the age!

Will gentlemen who propose to rivet this religious chain think of the future, for it is to the future that we are to look for bonds, fetters, and disfranchisement? That future which, in a few years, will expand our population to an hundred millions; when our wild Indian lands, embracing Oregon and the far West, shall have been settled by foreign Roman Catholics and their children, all under guidance and control of Jesuit leaders, bound to obey their General the Pope’s nuncio, whose head quarters are to be the seat of government, and that seat of government the city of Washington!

Let us imagine, for a moment, all this immense expanse of empire, embracing some fifty or sixty States, to be settled by its proportion of the foreign slaves of foreign Jesuits; and, inferring the future from the past, that they have been successful in extending their invasions upon the spiritual and political rights of the American people! What would be the direful consequences of this dreadful overshadowing of the moral and intellectual world? Are the religious wars and relentless persecutions of fire, rack, and other bloody demonstrations of bigotry, with which Popery has deluged Europe for ages, again to be acted over here - on the fair and unstained bosom of our vast and free Republic? Heaven forbid this foul desecration of our equal rights! And yet, what hope of exemption gleams in the future, unless the friends if civil and religious liberty, animated by a sublime devotion to the welfare of their children and the freedom of posterity, now combine to arrest the march of Papal usurpation before it overspreads the land, and plants its “GARRISONS” of power deep in the bosom of our valleys, irresistible, and unresisted?

The combination of despotism - the despotism of Church and State power - must be counteracted by combinations of freemen, under the sacred guaranty of the Constitution, which makes resistance virtue, and stamps the denunciation of this “unholy and revolting alliance” with the sublimest attributes of patriotism and benevolence.

I have already shown you that our minister will have no duties to perform in Rome; and now permit me to inquire what interests of Rome, as a European Power, are to be protected by her minister in this country?

Sir, this constitutes the gist, the very marrow of the question. He is destined to be a vigilant observer of the ruffled waters of political agitation - an active correspondent, advisory and directory, and, so far as the Jesuits in this country are concerned, mandatory - concentrating the combined force of foreign Roman Catholic action, and the foreign Roman Catholic vote, upon such men and such measures as are best calculated to extend the temporal power and political influence of the Romish priesthood!

                                                 NOTES

*1. There are now in Oregon about thirty missionaries, under the direction of ten fathers of the Jesuits, and others are soon to join them. Literary institutions are commenced; fourteen churches have been finished and dedicated, and 6,000 Indians have been baptized into the church. 15,000 more are in the hands of the priests, and passing through their preparatory course. The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, in France, appropriated during the last year, 54,560 francs to the Archbishop of Oregon, and 44,900 francs to the Jesuits in the Rocky mountains.
 2. The same policy has been adopted by the Roman church in Texas. A diocese subject to the See of Rome has been erected, a bishop appointed, and $10,000 put into his hands to facilitate his operations in that territory.
 3. Within a year or two the Jesuits have been withdrawn from one of the States in the valley of the Mississippi, and sent to the city of New York. “The papal press in Europe has informed us that the bishop of New York, at his last visit to Europe, had secured the funds for the erection of two Jesuit churches in this city. One of these churches was dedicated the 31st of July, the day of the feast of Saint Ignatius, the founder of the order.”
 4. Roman priests, in unusually large numbers, have landed in New England the past year. The statistics of the church for 1847 show sixty-five priests in New England. A Jesuit college stands in Worcester. Numbers of Romanists are constantly coming into New York and the eastern States from Canada.

During the next year it is estimated that no less than HALF A MILLION of the refuse population of Europe will be found flooding our shores, each ship-load accompanied by the necessary number of Jesuit priests, who are to locate them judiciously, with a view to the political control of certain States, or the organization of new ones in the West! How many JESUIT SENATORS shall we have in the course of the next twenty years?

Now here we are today, with Roman Catholics and Jesuits outnumbering everyone else in all three branches of our government. These three branches created to maintain a balance of power, are now all dominated by people of a literal foreign nation and religio-political entity, with completely different goals and agenda’s than the founding fathers of this nation envisioned. The very nation and political entity Mr. Levin was warning Congress about in the above speech.

Now of course, there are countless millions more Catholics among us than there was in his day, due to the non stop migration of them into this country, presently from our southern boarders. Which the Catholic church has and does openly facilitate, while using its large number of politicians in Washington to help prevent any action to halt or reduce this process. Facilitating legal and illegal immigration against the laws of this nation in obedience to their leader abroad over and above the laws of this nation. Countless more Catholic Churches, schools, colleges, hospitals, institutions, and you name it.

No need to expound any further, these few threads concerning Rome’s non stop intrusions upon peoples and governments of the world are loaded with info and examples of the same. I thought it expedient though, to share this prophetic message given to our Congress 174 years ago, concerning things which have now come to fruition. Still, most deny such, and will not look these truths in the face. So be it, we are already under the thumb of the final beast of biblical prophecy, whose deadly wound is very near being completely healed. Nevertheless, tidings out of the east will continue to trouble him, yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Pope urges virus lockdown obedience amid church-state debate

Pope Francis waded into the church-state debate about virus-imposed lockdowns of religious services, calling Tuesday for “prudence and obedience” to government protocols to prevent infections from surging again.

Francis’ appeal came just two days after Italian bishops bitterly complained that the Italian government offered no provisions for Masses to resume in its plan to reopen Italian business, social and sporting life starting May 4.

While it wasn’t clear if Francis intended to send a different message than the bishops, his appeal for obedience and prudence was in line with his previous calls to protect the most vulnerable, and for economic interests to take a back seat to shows of solidarity.

At the same time, Francis has certainly chafed at the lockdown, saying early on that he felt like he was in a “cage” and lamenting more recently that the church isn’t really “Church” without a community of faithful present and the administration of sacraments.

“As we are beginning to have protocols to get out of quarantine, let us pray that the Lord gives his people, all of us, the grace of prudence and obedience to the protocols so that the pandemic doesn’t return,” Francis said Tuesday.

Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte’s government announced Sunday that funerals could resume starting May 4, but there was no information on when the faithful could attend Mass.

In response, the Italian bishops’ conference expressed outrage that its proposals of safety protocols had apparently been ignored.

The bishops said they “cannot accept that freedom of worship is compromised.” They argued the government should have distinguished between its duty to provide health guidance and the church’s right to “organize the life of the Christian community, respecting the measures but in full autonomy.”

Conte’s office hastily responded that it was working on protocols to allow the resumption of liturgical services as soon as possible but “in conditions of maximum security.”

Francis weighed in on the fraught issue at the start of morning Mass celebrated alone in the chapel of the Vatican hotel where he lives. Francis has been celebrating daily Mass to empty pews in observance of the Vatican’s own lockdown measures, which mirror those of Italy, the epicenter of the European pandemic.

The Vatican has recorded 10 positive cases, the last one confirmed Tuesday in a Holy See official who tested positive but is now asymptomatic. All the official’s colleagues have tested negative, the Vatican said in a statement.

When Conte locked all of Italy down in March, Francis’ vicar of Rome sparked an outcry among some of the faithful when he ordered all churches shut to comply.

The vicar, Cardinal Angelo De Donatis, relented after speaking to Francis and allowed diocesan churches to remain open for individual prayer. De Donatis later tested positive for the virus and was hospitalized for 11 days before being released earlier this month.

Italian bishops have been in negotiation with the government about a reopening of public services, and on Tuesday the bishops said those negotiations were continuing despite the “tough” tone of their Sunday statement.

“I think in any relationship, if it’s true, there will be moments in which you can and must raise your voice, as long as this doesn’t become the norm,” the undersecretary of the bishops conference, the Rev. Ivan Maffeis, told the TV2000 broadcaster.

Francis’ weekly Sunday blessings from his window overlooking an empty St. Peter’s Square, not to mention his solo Holy Week and Easter services, have served as a stark visual reminder of how the pandemic has radically altered the practice of communal religious observance around the world.

Some Catholic conservatives and traditionalists have bristled at the closures and framed them as a violation of their right to religious liberty. Some evangelical pastors in the U.S., Brazil and elsewhere have resisted lockdowns and held services, and big religious observances in South Korea, France and Iran have been been blamed for helping to spread the infection early on.

Pope Francis calls for universal basic income

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis has joined a growing movement that believes the COVID-19 crisis should become a catalyst to consider a universal basic wage to guarantee everyone a minimum income.

Writing to social movements, including organized groups of casual labourers, Pope Francis said people should have the minimum they need to live and support their families.

“Street vendors, recyclers, carnies, small farmers, construction workers, dressmakers, the different kinds of caregivers: you who are informal, working on your own or in the grassroots economy, you have no steady income to get you through this hard time,” Pope Francis wrote in an Easter message.

The letter, dated April 12, was sent to organizations that have participated in the World Meeting of Popular Movements, which the Pope has hosted twice at the Vatican and attended in Bolivia in 2015.

“The ills that afflict everyone hit you twice as hard,” the Pope wrote. “Many of you live from day to day, without any type of legal guarantee to protect you.”

Government-ordered lockdowns to slow the spread of the virus have meant that many casual labourers have no work and, therefore, no income.

“This may be the time to consider a universal basic wage which would acknowledge and dignify the noble, essential tasks you carry out,” the Pope said. “It would ensure and concretely achieve the ideal, at once so human and so Christian, of no worker without rights.”

Canadian basic income advocates applauded the Pope’s letter.

“His support is very politically meaningful and helpful,” said Ontario Basic Income Network spokesperson Barbara Boraks.

“Political leaders need to be reminded that policies which build healthy societies and economies are always based on principles of respect, dignity and compassion. OBIN welcomes the support of the Roman Catholic Church.”

Ottawa’s evolving emergency aid program known as CERB (for Canada Emergency Response Benefit) has come to resemble something very close to a universal basic income. It has economists across the country debating whether or not it should continue past the COVID crisis.

Calling the pandemic a “time of danger,” Pope Francis said he hoped it would serve to “free us from operating on automatic pilot (and) shake our sleepy consciences” in order to spark a conversion that “puts an end to the idolatry of money and places human life and dignity at the centre.”

There you have it. Call for obedience to the government lockdowns, then call for universal income because of the results. No plandemic here, nothing to see, move along.

Baylor Prof Says Being Anti-Science, Anti-Fauci is Hate Crime

PGC – When you define hate crime as speech, and you give the state power to process that speech as crime, you empower the state to control speech, endstop.

We see evidence of this in the rhetoric of the left themselves, who, whenever the narrative somehow begins to turn against them ,despite their inordinate advantage at controlling most of the bullhorns most people hear in these lands, they turn to the morality police informant willing to destroy any semblence of Bill of Rights standards because this time the narrative is too important to lose.

The handling of the Cough Cough by governments and corporations has demonstrated to most people willing to plainly observe that they view we humans as lab rats and children that must be held by the hand at all times and controlled from cradle to grave unless we manage somehow to get a ticket into the big show, the place where the human pig dependents are made.

From within their protected citadels, they make decrees and the ones who write laws and command cops follow the signal wherever it goes.  One professor is now sending a message to all the powers that be in that special club that they’re losing the narrative on Covid.  All of your efforts to micromanage our lives to safety have led to perhaps more harm than good.

We can’t even begin to count the ways that these lockdowns have changed the lives of so many of our youth who were denied we don’t even fully know what.  As we see suicide rates increase  dramatically, and small businesses forever destroyed, we see no reason to believe you anymore, not because of conspiracies, but because of the plain fruits of our lies and what our simple eyes show us.

When your news shows can’t hide the failures, you must criminalize the very thought of failure itself.  So a Professor of good standing in one of the bastions of the DNC ideology comes forward and declares it to be a rational idea to declare questioing the official science on Covid should be considered a hate crime.  Let’s throw in a protection for Fauci as well, and make it clear he’s off limits like Covid Science  is off limts.

A pediatric doctor from Baylor Colliege  of Medicine, Dr. Peter Hotez, offered such a scenario.  This man is a pediatric doctor.  I am willing to bet some of the fathers and mothers of some of the very children he serves might get arrested one day if his hate crime expansion fantasy were to happen.   Maybe one of them would go to jail, over speech, and this ‘do no harm’ in name only doctor is suggesting we throw that child’s parent in jail because the narrative is failing and no one believes we incompetent scientists anymore.

Someone recently argued with me about the rising hate in this country, suggesting it wasn’t to the point people were willing to subhumanize vast groups of people.  This item here is what confirms in me that my suspicions are sadly well founded, suspicions I am sure many of you share.

Most of this anger, most of this hate is coming from our highest leadership in all of our own major institutions, as in this case, the University of Baylor becoming a legitimizer in the minds of millions that it’s ok to view people who don’t agree with the authorities as being something less than human, subhuman, criminals who should all be locked up.

Now we begin to see the true nature if the hate crimes laws, which Biden himself had a major contributing hand in authoring.

If I remember correctly, these laws allow for prosecution of composers of articles speaking out against others, if someone who literally attacks them for their views may have been influenced by such articles. The real intent is to empower government to go after all dissenters. Staging attacks to this end will be all too easy.

Biden Regime Says Anti-Maskers, Lockdown Resisters, And Trump Supporters Are Huge Terrorist Threat

Lockdown resisting Republicans are more dangerous than radical Islam, says the Biden administration as it watches Afghanistan be overrun by the Taliban

In new guidance released this week, Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas says that opponents of COVID-19 restrictions including lockdowns and vaccine mandates, and supporters of President Donald Trump who believe the 2020 election was stolen constitute major terror threats.

A photo went viral on Twitter this week, claiming to show that the Department of Homeland Security considers “Opposition to COVID measures” and “Claims of election fraud” to be two of the country’s largest terrorist threats currently faced by the Biden regime. Many expressed skepticism, suggesting the photo was manipulated, due to the seemingly ridiculous notion that lockdown resisters are more dangerous than Islamic terrorists or the Taliban, even as the militant group conquers and occupies the majority of Afghanistan as American troops leave after a 20-year occupation.

However, the image appears to be real, and the topics included in the image were discussed on MSNBC, the low-rated cable news network.

The DHS claims that the United States is in a “heightened threat landscape,” and according to MSNBC, “Homeland Security says there’s several concerning factors. There’s continuing grievances over COVID restrictions, which has stirred up a lot of opposition,” and “there’s the coming 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks,” and “And there are approaching religious holidays and the opening of school and the possibility of school shootings.”

A former member of the Trump administration’s Department of Homeland Security also recently claimed that Republicans should be considered a terrorist threat.

Miles Taylor, the former official, claimed that President Donald Trump disregarded the DHS’s claims that Republicans constitute terrorism threats, however, he also directly compared Republicans to radical Islamic extremists. “a very prominent, former U.S. commander who said there are elements of the GOP that are starting to look like the jihadists that he used to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq, spreading lies and conspiracy theories to radicalize a population,” said Taylor, who emphasized that concerns about election integrity and the 2020 election are akin to beheadings and Sharia Law.

“And I worry similarly about the continuing radicalization of the electorate,” Taylor continued. “If you go back and look in time, and I say this as a counterterrorism guy, terrorism movements don’t start immediately with violence. They usually start with a political grievance that leaders say cannot be solved through peaceful means. Then they move to violence. After Trump started to promulgate the big lie, a lot of us said what he’s doing is actually tilling the fertile soil for extremists to pop up later on.”

Pope calls on lawmakers worldwide to quickly reach consensus on fighting climate change

Posted: Oct 9, 2021 / 09:08 AM PDT / Updated: Oct 9, 2021 / 12:02 PM PDT

Pope Francis on Saturday called on lawmakers worldwide to overcome “the narrow confines” of partisan politics to quickly reach consensus on fighting climate change.

The pope addressed parliamentarians who were in Rome for a preparatory meeting before the U.N’s annual climate conference, which begins in Glasgow, Scotland, on Oct. 31.

Francis referred to a joint appeal he and other religious leaders signed this week that calls for governments to commit to ambitious goals at the U.N. conference, which experts consider a critical opportunity to tackle the threat of global warming.

“To meet this challenge, everyone has a role to play,” Francis told the visiting lawmakers from many countries. ”That of political and government leaders is especially important, and indeed crucial.”

“This demanding change of direction will require great wisdom, foresight and concern for the common good: in a word, the fundamental virtues of good politics,” Francis said.

Francis said earlier he intended to participate in the U.N.’s upcoming COP26 conference, but the Vatican announced Friday that he would not attend and the Vatican delegation would be led by the secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.

No explanation was given, but the 84-year-old pope underwent intestinal surgery in July.

The pope expressed hope Saturday that the lawmakers’ efforts at the climate conference and beyond “will be illuminated by the two important principles of responsibility and solidarity.”

“We owe this to the young, to future generations,” he said.

Caring for humanity’s “common home,” Francis said, “is not just a matter of discouraging and penalizing improper practices, but also, and above all, of concretely encouraging new paths to pursue” that are better suited to climate-protection objectives and to contributing “to the positive outcome of COP26.”

Before his speech, Francis gave a private audience to Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“His Holiness’s leadership is a source of joy and hope for Catholics and for all people, challenging each of us to be good stewards of God’s creation, to act on climate, to embrace the refugee, the immigrant and the poor, and to recognize the dignity and divinity in everyone,” Pelosi said in a statement after her audience with Francis.

She called the pontiff’s 2015 encyclical exhorting people to protect the environment “a powerful challenge to the global community to act decisively on the climate crisis with special attention to the most vulnerable communities.”

During their encounter, Pelosi expressed gratitude “for the immense moral clarity and urgency that His Holiness continues to bring to the climate crisis,” the statement said.

Pope Francis and Nancy Pelosi meet at the Vatican

Vatican City, Oct 9, 2021 / 05:20 am

Pope Francis met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday.

At the time of publication, the Vatican had released no information about what the pope and Pelosi discussed, in line with its usual custom for papal meetings with non-heads of state.

But it noted the audience in its daily bulletin for Oct. 9, saying that the House Speaker was accompanied by her husband, the businessman Paul Pelosi, and entourage.

Photographs released by the Vatican showed that Pelosi also met with Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin and “foreign minister” Archbishop Paul Gallagher.

The first Italian-American Speaker of the House was in Rome to give the keynote address at the opening session of the G20 Parliamentary Speakers’ Summit. She also met with the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

The day before her audience with the pope, the 81-year-old discussed the environment, migration, and human rights during a visit to the Vatican.

The Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development announced the visit on Oct. 8 in a post on its Twitter account.

Pelosi was accompanied to the Vatican on Friday by Patrick Connell, the chargé d’affaires of the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See.

On the same day, the White House announced that former U.S. senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana is President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See.

Pelosi, a Catholic mother of five, has clashed repeatedly with the archbishop of her home diocese over her support for abortion.

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone launched a prayer campaign last month aimed at inspiring “a conversion of heart” among politicians supporting abortion.

“A conversion of heart of the majority of our Congressional representatives is needed on this issue, beginning with the leader of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” the San Francisco archbishop said.

“I am therefore inviting all Catholics to join in a massive and visible campaign of prayer and fasting for Speaker Pelosi: commit to praying one rosary a week and fasting on Fridays for her conversion of heart.”

Cordileone urged Catholics and people of goodwill to sign up for the “Rose and a rosary for Nancy Pelosi” campaign.

A rose will be sent to the Speaker “as a symbol of your prayer and fasting for her,” he explained.

In May, Pelosi said that she was “pleased” with a Vatican letter to the U.S. bishops which addressed Communion for pro-abortion politicians. She claimed that the Vatican had instructed the bishops not to be “divisive” on the issue.

In response, Cordileone said the Vatican was in fact promoting “dialogue” between bishops and pro-abortion politicians, “to help them understand the grave evil they are helping to perpetrate and accompany them to a change of heart.”

“Speaker Pelosi’s positive reaction” to the letter, he noted, “raises hope that progress can be made in this most serious matter.”

In July, Cordileone criticized Pelosi after she cited her Catholic faith while defending efforts to permit federal funding of elective abortions.

“Let me repeat: no one can claim to be a devout Catholic and condone the killing of innocent human life, let alone have the government pay for it,” he said.

Pelosi had a 15-minute audience with Benedict XVI in 2009.

The Vatican said that the German pope “took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.”

Pope Francis is expected to receive Joe Biden on Oct. 29, in the U.S. president’s first official visit to the Vatican since his inauguration, according to sources at the Apostolic Palace.

Joe Biden, the second Catholic president in U.S. history, is due to attend the G20 summit in Rome on Oct. 30–31.

In a statement after the papal audience, Pelosi described the meeting as a “spiritual, personal and official honor.”

She said: “His Holiness’ leadership is a source of joy and hope for Catholics and for all people, challenging each of us to be good stewards of God’s creation, to act on climate, to embrace the refugee, the immigrant and the poor, and to recognize the dignity and divinity in everyone.”

“His Holiness’ encyclical Laudato si’ is a powerful challenge to the global community to act decisively on the climate crisis with special attention to the most vulnerable communities. I expressed the gratitude of those working on climate action in the Congress for the immense moral clarity and urgency that His Holiness continues to bring to the climate crisis, and how we continue to cherish his address to the Joint Session of Congress in 2015.”

She continued: “His Holiness commands our attention to honor the Gospel of Matthew by serving ‘the least of these,’ lifting up those who have been left out or left behind, especially in the time of COVID.”

“In San Francisco, we take special pride in Pope Francis, who shares the namesake of our city and whose song of St. Francis is our anthem. ‘Lord, make me a channel of thy peace. Where there is darkness, may we bring light. Where there is hatred, may we bring love. Where there is despair, may we bring hope.’”

This report was updated at 08:50 MDT with Nancy Pelosi’s statement.

Catholic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi speaks with the Pope, the same day he calls for lawmakers worldwide to come together to make laws no doubt, to battle climate change. Coincidence, I think not.

The two most appropriate days in a calendar year for the promoter in chief of the one world order and the would be director of
making it happen.... Frankie.

Especially from the one who calls a personal relationship with Jesus dangerous.

Halloween and Halloween Eve.....

Halloween is considered a satanic holiday for many confessing Satanists , and for obvious reasons, as it is a day where demons, witches and devils are glorified.

Back to the dark ages we go. The same people leading the way, who did the first time. The papacy and her elitist lovers. This time however, their success will be very short lived. No dark ages, just a final dark moment in time, right before the true Light is revealed.

1Jn 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
