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.

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.

Pope: Private property is ‘not Christian’, WEF agrees

At the turn of the month November-December, the pope made a move that was described as shocking by many. He argued that Christianity did not support the right to own a home. This led to surprised and outraged reactions, whereby several pointed out that those who are forced to rent or beg for shelter can never be free. Free West Media can here reveal that the Pope's statement is in line with the plans that the globalist elite has long discussed and also more or less clearly communicated to the public, something that most people have overlooked. Among other things, we present the World Economic Forum's 8-point vision for 2030. These world-changing plans are beginning to materialize in various ways now, including in China.

Pope Francis attracted a lot of attention in Catholic circles on November 30 when he said several controversial things in a video message to judges from the Committee on Social Rights in Africa and America. However, the general public is not aware of his sensational statement, as the system media did not report on it.

The pope said, among other things, that a new “social justice” is needed and that private ownership is not something obvious in Christianity and therefore not for the Catholic Church either.

“Let us build the new social justice and admit that the Christian tradition has never recognized the right to private property as absolute and immovable,” said Francis.

Outraged reactions
Many were shocked by the statement and pointed out that the right to own private property is one of the most important human rights.


PROFESSOR KLAUS SCHWAB, 82, is a German engineer, economist and professor of business policy who is best known as the founder and chairman of the powerful globalist foundation World Economic Forum (WEF). In his book Covid-19: The Great Reset, Schwab claims that the world “will never” return to normal, despite acknowledging that the alleged coronavirus pandemic “does not pose a new existential threat.” – The pandemic represents a rare but narrow time window with opportunities to reflect (re: flect), rethink (re: imagine) and restore (re: set) our world, Schwab said at the launch of The Great Reset this summer. Photo: KTU
They pointed out that without that right you are like slaves of old, who must rely on their owners giving them a roof over their heads and food. Being always forced to earn in order to pay for the most basic need – protection against the forces of the weather – makes you both unfree and in practice completely powerless, some said on social media.

The pope’s statement was also widely discussed in Christian circles and no comments were positive. The exception was possibly the Twitter account Lichten & Bright who wrote:“Thank you for letting us know the Pope’s position on private ownership of property and means of production. We had no idea that he was an advocate of nationalizations [the state seizes] all land and business companies and against democratic elections. Thoughtful things”.

The Twitter account Catholic Victory wrote briefly that “Francis is a heretic and not a pope”.

Several people pointed out that it was reminiscent of the startling tones heard for several years from the World Economic Forum (WEF) foundation, which is best known for the annual conference in Davos, Switzerland. It brings together some of the world’s most powerful policy makers and globalists in politics and business. It was precisely the WEF that this summer, via its “ambassador” Prince Charles, launched The Great Reset, which more and more world leaders are now talking openly about being implemented.

The author of The Great Reset is Klaus Schwab, chairman of the powerful WEF, who wrote a 280-page book entitled COVID-19: The Great Reset. The book puts forward the argument that the pandemic has proven absolutely necessary to immediately introduce a completely new world order.

No private ownership 2030
To get an idea of ​​the background to the pope’s strange statement and what The Great Reset might mean, we can watch a video from the WEF entitled “8 predictions for the world 2030”.

The first point there is as simple as it is remarkable. It states that “You will own nothing and you will be happy”. The point also explains that “Whatever you need, you will rent”. So no more ownership, but everything should be rented, including the clothes you wear on the body.

Can they really mean it? We visit WEF’s website for more information. There you can in a text, which paints the future they want to see in 2030, read the following:

Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city – or should I say “our city”. I own nothing. I do not own a car. I do not own a house. I do not own any appliances or clothes.

The text on the WEF’s website also states that it is not only private ownership that will be abolished in the new utopia, or dystopia depending on who you ask, but there will also be no privacy. We can read there that:

Sometimes I can get annoyed by the fact that I have no real integrity. Nowhere can I go without being registered. I know that somewhere everything I do, think and dream about is recorded. I can only hope that no one will use it against me.

Many who hear it for the first time believe that it must be a conspiracy theorist’s crazy fantasies, but it is instead the richest and most powerful globalists on the planet who meet annually in Davos who present it in text and video form. System media has not reported on this and then the general public does not know these visions and agendas of these globalists.

Canadian Whistleblower has been right so far
Someone who claimed to be a Canadian MP and member of the Liberal Party of Canada (Canada’s Liberal Party led by Justin Trudeau, the country’s current Prime Minister) wrote an open letter on October 10 to warn the Canadian people that the pandemic is a smokescreen with the aim of introducing a far-reaching agenda where, among other things, people will be forced to renounce their right to private ownership. The Whistleblower did not reveal his name, but wrote that “I sit on several committee groups, but the information I provide comes from the Strategic Planning Committee, which is governed by the PMO [abbreviation for Prime Minister’s Office]”.

The anonymous MP then set out a secret roadmap established by Trudeau, which would be implemented regardless of their views or objections. He initially states that a second shutdown will be introduced in November, which will then be even tougher over Christmas and New Year. This is exactly what has happened in both North America and Europe. The whistleblower then indicates a frightening development in 2021, where, among other things, a third wave from a mutation called “COVID-21” – this time with real death rates – will be followed by an even harsher third shutdown in the first and second quarters of 2021.

Regarding the current economy and ownership, he indicates an impending “collapse of the supply chain, stock shortages, major economic instability” in the second quarter of 2021. Desperate people will then be offered the general basic income program, Universal Basic Income [UBI] in English. It can be mentioned here that Australia has already made it clear that only vaccinated citizens will be given welfare funds under a new law with the slogan “No jab, no pay”, “no syringe, nothing paid”.

In China, thousands of people in rural areas who voluntarily abandon their privately owned property and move to newly built apartments have been rewarded in various ways, while those who struggle are arrested and punished. Their houses are being demolished regardless of compliance.

Then the whistleblower describes in detail how the Canadians will be forced to renounce their ownership starting already this year. The anonymous Member writes:

Based on the roadmap provided, the Strategic Planning Committee was asked to design an effective way to change Canadians to meet unprecedented economic hardship. One that will change Canada and change the lives of Canadians forever. What we were told was that the federal government would offer Canadians a total debt write-off to compensate for what is essentially an economic collapse at the international level, where the federal government will offer Canadians to write off all their debts. Here’s how it works:

The federal government will offer to write off all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc.) where financing will be provided by the Canada [International Monetary Fund] IMF during what will be known as the World Debt Reset.

In exchange for accepting this total debt forgiveness, the individual will give up ownership of all property and assets forever. The individual will also need to agree to participate in the vaccination program for COVID-19 and COVID-21, which would allow the individual to travel and live indefinitely even during a complete shutdown (using a photo ID called Canada’s HealthPass).

With the pope’s statement, the Vatican and the Catholic Church have now officially taken the position that such possible plans do not run counter to the “Christian tradition”. Pope Francis was the one who, at the UN headquarters on September 25, 2015, the first visit ever by a pope, saw to it that all world leaders signed Agenda 2030.

COP26: Pope warns of God’s judgment for failure to care for creation

November 12, 2021
In a letter to the Catholics of Scotland, Pope Francis prays for “wisdom and strength” for leaders at the COP26 meeting on the environment, warning that “this occasion must not be wasted, lest we have to face God’s judgment.”

By Christopher Wells

“Time is running out,” Pope Francis said in a Letter to the Catholics of Scotland, made public earlier this week by the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

The occasion of the COP26 conference, he said, “must not be wasted, lest we have to face God’s judgment for our failure to be faithful stewards of the world He has entrusted to our care.”

A great moral issue of our time

Pope Francis expressed his regret at being unable to attend the Conference in Scotland and meet with Scottish Catholics. However, he said, he was grateful to the faithful for “joining in prayer for my intentions and for the fruitful outcome” of the meeting, which is facing one of “the great moral issues of our time: the preservation of God’s creation, given to us as a garden to be cultivated and as a common home for our human family.”

He called for prayer for “wisdom and strength” for leaders “charged with guiding the international community as they seek to meet the grave challenge with concrete decisions inspired by responsibility towards present and future generations.”

Persevering in proven fidelity

The Pope’s letter was dated 9 November, the feast of the Dedication of St John Lateran, which “symbolizes the Church’s communion in faith and charity with the See of Peter. He asked the faithful of Scotland for prayers for himself and his fellow bishops, and encouraged them to continue to persevere in their “proven fidelity to the Lord and His Church.”

Renewed commitment

In these challenging times, he said, “may all Christ’s followers in Scotland renew their commitment to be convincing witnesses to the joy of the Gospel and its power to bring light and hope to every effort to build a future of justice, fraternity and prosperity, both material and spiritual.”

Pope Francis concluded his letter by assuring Scottish Catholics of his prayers and commending them “to the loving intercession of Mary, Mother of the Church.”

Ah yes, the world will face God's judgment of course, if they do not heed the Pope's and Globalists calls to completely overhaul the worlds governments and nations according to their own designs to save this planet form climate change which has always happened and always will. Never mind the incessant deceptions, false teachings, crimes against humanity, sexual abuse, child sexual abuse, child abuse, child trafficking, rape, murder, incest, robbery, rampant homosexuality, adultery, idol worship, atheism, transgenderism, and on and on in defiance of God and His law. That's all OK, we just need to be more inclusive. Just don't you dare argue against the establishment of authoritarian world government over all others to protect us from climate change, or you will face the judgments of God.

What a self supporting farce is this Jesuit Pope Francis. Who winks at almost every sin against God and humanity, seeking to bring us back to the governing principles and institutions of the dark ages, and then tells people who won't agree with this satanically inspired drivel, they will face the judgments of God. Fear mongering politics and manipulation at its finest, exemplified by the one who declares himself spiritual and temporal leader of the world. At least he properly commends the intercession of these political processes to the dead, whom Satan himself is the father of.

The wanton destruction of nature is in fact a sin against God and humanity, but it is only one of many many others which will bring down God's judgment upon this world. Not the least of which, will be the formation of evil dark aged government once again, which destroys individual God given liberties and freedoms. Exactly as the Pope and his minions are planning, implementing, and executing without the consent of a great many they intend to Lord themselves over.

God's judgments will be poured out upon this world because they will submit to and worship the beast and his image, which verily is the dark ages form of government the Pope and his minions seek to establish. Not because the average person of this world did not fully support climate change initiatives, being imposed themselves by the Pope and his globalist minions in the formation of their dark ages world government.

Rev 15:1  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. 5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Rev 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. 3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. 4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. 6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. 7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments. 8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. 10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. 12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Quoted article below from link above. Emphasis is mine.

Pope Francis’ 9 Commandments for the Coming Global Economy

We are witnessing the complete cancellation of the moral law. The spiritual decline in the church is replacing the revealed law of God’s Ten Commandments with left-wing Marxist theories on economics. During the last sixty years we have seen churches exchange the clear teachings of morality for a globalist and elitist worldview. Instead of proclaiming biblical principles about right and wrong, today’s church wants to emphasize the new “woke” anti-Christian and progressive ideology that is deliberately erasing our Christian roots from society.

Last month, the far-left Jesuit publication called America Magazine published Pope Francis’ 9 Commandments for a just economy. [1] The mere fact that they are called the 9 commandments is evidence of their contempt for God’s 10 Commandments. Tragically, even these 9 Commandments are an expression of secular and non-Christian views. Identity politics and the social justice movement are transforming the churches into a new pseudo-religion that rivals true biblical Christian beliefs.

The 9 Commandments of Pope Francis are making demands on the different sectors of our culture. Again, these demands are not based on God’s law, but rather reflect the talking points that dominate left-wing Marxist agendas. The 9 commandments of the Pope for the coming global economy are as follows:

1 – Big pharmaceutical companies must release the patents for COVID vaccines;

2- Big Finance must forgive the debts of poor countries;

3- “Great extractive industries” (mining companies) need to stop destroying the environment and “poisoning food and people”

4 – Great food corporations must stop “monopolistic systems of production and distribution that inflate prices” that cause hunger;

5 – All gun manufacturers must stop all production and sales of arms;

6 – Big Tech must censor all hate speech, fake news and conspiracy theories (This plan is to shut down biblical conservative voices);

7 – Telecommunications giants must facilitate access to the internet to help educate poor children (This will promote the Pope’s Global Compact on Education which is based on Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti);

8 – Big Media must censor all disinformation, defamation, slander and scandal (This is another attack against Christian conservative views);

9 – Powerful countries must discontinue their blockades and sanctions against other countries. [1]

This is the same Marxist narrative that promotes class struggle and pits one class against the other, one identity group against the other, those who “have” (rich) against those who “have not” (poor). The problem, according to Marxism, is the “system” and not the “people.” The capitalist political system is evil and must be destroyed. This false reasoning contradicts the biblical teachings of free will and personal responsibility for our good or bad decisions. It also denies that human nature is the problem and that our sinful lives must be redeemed by the power of God.

This has caused the churches to redefine their mission by replacing moral truth with political revolution. The great moral problems of today have nothing to do with the 10 Commandments; no, it’s all about poverty, housing, healthcare, the economy, the environment, women’s ordination, LGBT + agenda and ecumenism. The modern church has embraced this new class struggle and is creating open insurrection within the churches. We are now engaged in a lifelong endless struggle for social and economic justice that will certainly consume all of our time and energy in an attempt to create a perfect utopian society in this fallen and broken world.

Church and state are coming together to enact socialism through legislation. This will ultimately result in persecution for those who remain faithful to the Ten Commandments of God (see Revelation 13:15). Church leaders today have become politicians who parade themselves as ministers of Jesus, fighting not against sin, but for global economic initiatives. The new “Christian” establishment has abandoned its biblical message. What can be more basic to our faith than the proclamation of the gospel that will redeem the souls of men and women? Any message that does not work to save sinners from their sins (transgression of the 10 Commandments of God) is not the gospel of Christ:

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-8.


Ignorance is, as ignorance does. Whether that ignorance is willing ignorance or not. Those who choose to turn a blind eye to the source of true globalist government, economy, abusive control and manipulation, and eventual persecution due to the same, do not stand a chance of defeating it.

http://adventmessenger.org/the-climate-sunday-coalition-declared-at-the-conclusion-of-cop26-we-have-only-just-begun-and-through-worship-they-will-work-for-climate-justice/

The Climate Sunday Coalition Declared at the Conclusion of COP26, “We have Only Just Begun” and “Through Worship” we will work for Climate Justice

The Climate Sunday Coalition is an ecumenical initiative in the UK that calls on churches to conduct climate-focused Sunday worship services. They have more than 5,000 churches across denominational lines that have combined climate change activism with Sunday worship. On November 15, 2021, two days after the conclusion of COP26, the Climate Sunday Coalition released a statement saying that COP26 did not go far enough, so they are asking governments to show “moral leadership and take bolder action.” [1]

The Climate Sunday Coalition published the following statement after COP26:

*The Climate Sunday coalition urges the UK government to show moral leadership and to take bolder action at home on the climate crisis after COP26.
*While there have been some welcome agreements reached in Glasgow at COP26, the outcomes of the conference on the whole fell short of what was needed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees.
*Churches have much to offer to address this challenge, and we must use all of our assets – buildings, land, local influence and national voice – to respond.
*Collectively, churches participating in Climate Sunday have accomplished much, but we have only just begun.”
*So many from the faith communities have joined together to create such a positive momentum for the care of our planet and its future. We pray that all agreements – and more – will be honored recognizing that in order to ensure a good tomorrow our work continues today with no room for procrastination”.
*While we called on leaders to achieve more through the Glasgow Climate Pact, we can all continue to seek transformational change at home and support climate justice globally.- Churches across Northern Ireland have really responded to the Climate Sunday initiative, but following COP26 there is much more to be done. We hope and pray that churches throughout the island of Ireland will see this as a springboard to continue to work for climate justice, through worship, through practical action, and calling on those in our governments to make the courage decisions we need to keep warming below 1.5C. [1]

Can we not see what is unfolding before our eyes? The different churches are coming together to save the planet through Sunday worship, and they are calling on world leaders to take bolder action. This is Laudato Si’ in action. Climate activists have taken over our churches and are promoting Sunday worship as the response to the climate crisis. Who is behind this? And who is pulling the strings?

Rome is. Rome is behind the Climate Sunday Coalition. Not only is the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales part of the Climate Sunday Coalition [2], but this same Climate Sunday Coalition is openly promoting Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ and St. Francis of Assisi’s pantheistic canticle that praises “Lord Brother Sun, Sister Moon and Brother Wind.” [3] If the churches can convince politicians to embrace their radical climate agenda, we will soon see the demand for laws banning secular activities on Sunday and calling for Sunday rest.

The handwriting is on the wall. What more evidence do you need to wake up? At this very moment we must be giving the warning and sharing truth-filled literature like the Great Controversy and the National Sunday Law book, spreading them like the leaves of autumn. These books have the perfect title to counter the global Climate Sunday campaign. The third angel’s message will reveal to people where all these prophetic events will lead; and most importantly, prepare them for what is ahead. We are told by inspiration that if God’s people stay silent at a time like this, we will be held accountable:

“If they do nothing to disabuse the minds of the people, and through ignorance of the truth our legislatures should abjure the principles of Protestantism, and give countenance and support to the Roman fallacy, the spurious sabbath, God will hold his people who have had great light, responsible for their lack of diligence and faithfulness” (Review and Herald, December 24, 1889).

Jesuits: The Leadership of Pope Francis through Laudato Si’ has been Enormous and Highly Significant at COP26

On November 12, 2021, the Director of Jesuit Missions in the UK, Paul Chitnis, spoke to Vatican News and revealed that Pope Francis’ Catholic social teachings contained in his encyclical on climate change, Laudato Si’, had made a “significant” impact at COP26. However, he “lamented” that after two weeks of discussions by nearly 200 countries represented at COP26, the nations needed to “set tougher climate pledges” because the final draft was “watered down.” Jesuit director Paul Chitnis also expressed that the voice of the “faith communities” was not “not sufficiently addressed” at COP26. He said that the “role of faith communities is absolutely fundamental” in combating climate change:

“Pope Francis’ leadership on this issue, particularly through Laudato si’, has been ‘enormous and highly significant’ and this was noted at the COP26 summit. However, one of the things that have not been addressed enough at the conference, he lamented, has been the need for an “interior change” and this, he said, “is where the faith communities have something really important to say.” He also stressed that “the role of the faith communities is absolutely fundamental in keeping this 1.5-degree limit to global warming alive.” [1]

“The role of faith,” according to Chitnis, is “absolutely fundamental” to reaching the “1.5 degree limit to global warming.” Here we have a prominent Jesuit leader telling us that “faith” will save us from the climate crisis. Whose faith and whose role will save planet earth? Rome’s of course. They do not seek faith in the word of God, but faith in the first beast of Revelation 13. The first beast of Revelation 13 wants the entire world to honor her. This will happen when the United States enforces the decrees of the first beast in the world (Revelation 13:2). This is exactly what we see Rome asking for. The Jesuits regret that COP26 did not go far enough because the nations failed to heed the voice of the church. They want everyone – politicians, religious leaders and business leaders to come together and establish a close working relationship on the doctrines of Rome. We know from prophecy that this refers to a Sunday law.

The Jesuits want climate solutions to be based solely on the teachings of the church. They wanted Laudato Si’ to be the exclusive answer for COP26. Although the world is calling the climate crisis the most important problem facing humanity, Rome was not entirely happy because, according to Jesuit Paul Chitnis, “there are still a host of issues the nearly 200 countries represented at COP26 disagree on.” Chitins said the promise to reduce emissions that was adopted at COP26 was not enough to limit “global warming at 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.” This means, according to Chitnis, that we will still see devastating “sea levels rise, droughts, storms, floods and wildfires.” [1]

It is clear to see that the so-called climate crisis is being created to help bring about the green Sunday Law. Sunday, the counterfeit Sabbath, the mark of apostasy, is being disguised as the solution to save our society from destruction. All this continuing agitation for Laudato Si’ is Rome’s master plan to conceal its true intention and establish its ecclesiastical supremacy throughout the world. Pope Francis has dedicated his pontificate to promoting Laudato Si’ and the nations are promising to do the same. They are planning to save the world together. Rome, the first beast of Revelation 13, wants the kings of the earth to promote the Pope’s green Sunday law. Will we soon see the final sell-out of all our civil and religious liberties?

Even if Rome didn’t accomplish everything they wanted at COP26 (Praise the Lord!), we know that change is coming and strategies are being devised and plans are being made to undermine our long-standing values of liberty and freedom through a National Sunday Law. It’s coming. There is no doubt about that. What we need now is for God’s people to finish the work that has been entrusted to us. It is the Remnant people of Revelation 12:17 who need to fulfill their God-given prophetic role while there is still time.

Nancy Pelosi: Combating Climate Change is a Religious Issue

On Thursday, November 18, 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference that the climate change movement is a “religious” issue for her when recounting her visit to COP26. According to Pelosi, the climate crisis is also a “national security” issue and we have a “moral obligation” to become protectors of “God’s creation.” [1] When top political leaders start invoking religion with a “national” climate crisis, we know exactly where it is headed.

A precedent is being set for the coming tyranny as politics and religion unite to impose a “Green Sunday Law” in obedience to the Pope’s climate encyclical. One must grasp the magnitude of what is happening before our eyes: the complete surrender of secular governments to the first beast of Revelation 13. Our nation will establish an apostate religious-political system modeled after Rome.

The only piece of the puzzle that has yet to take shape is the National Sunday Law. When civil rule comes under the influence of the church, these efforts lead to both the downfall of the church and state. When the church enters into an unholy alliance with the state, that’s when faith is corrupted with political influence and power. This opens the way for the church to become arbitrary and a persecutor of minority groups who reject the church’s man-made traditions.

For decades, faithful Seventh-day Adventists have been announcing the final developments of world events, and we are only seeing the fulfilment of these trends. When world leaders begin making public religious statements in context to a national emergency, what follows is the systematic dismantling of all our freedoms. They are working to revoke our Constitutional rights and soon all our liberties will disappear.

The only answer for this unholy alliance of church and state is the everlasting gospel found in Revelation 14:6-12. These great messages have to take priority in the life and work of the church. These messages which the Lord gave must be faithfully proclaimed. Only through the effortless and vigorous work of evangelism can there be hope and salvation to overcome in the days ahead. We must be preparing for the coming mark of the beast.

“The Lord has shown me clearly that the image of the beast will be formed before probation closes; for it is to be the great test for the people of God, by which their eternal destiny will be decided” (Bible Commentary, Vol. 7, p. 976).

She is only following her religious head on calling for anything climate change.

POPE Frankie has been doing such , even as recently as just a month ago when he worked that into his "I have a dream" idea of the "One world order."

Nancy is not on great terms with the pope because of her stand on abortion... (For the life of me I just don't understand Frankie actually getting that one right  ::headscratch::)

No matter.... She needs brownie points with him and I would bet that she also believes that it will count in her bucket of "works" needing to be done before she departs this world.

For that woman to hint at anything being a moral obligation just proves insanity can walk in stilettos at any age.

Go to the above link, read it, and check out the photos of Pelosi's meeting with the Pope, all smiles. Don't kid yourself, the Pope has no problem with Pelosi. Apart from the abortion issue, she is a major supported and player in establishing Roman Catholic Social teaching, doctrine, and justice as the laws of this land. No good Catholic gets abortions. Just take Pelosi herself as a prime example having had five children.

http://adventmessenger.org/a-ferocious-beast-called-the-guardian-of-international-peace-and-security-has-been-installed-at-the-united-nations/

Beast and above article quoted below, may be viewed at the above link.

Quote
A Ferocious Beast called the “Guardian of International Peace and Security” has been installed at the United Nations

A new ferocious rainbow beast sculpture was installed in the visitor’s plaza at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. It is called the “Guardian of International Peace and Security.” This was a gift from the Government of Oaxaca, Mexico and resembles the artwork found in pre-Columbian cultures that existed throughout Mexico. Interestingly, this “beast” for “peace” also looks somewhat similar to what we read in the book of Revelation about the first beast of Revelation 13, the papacy:

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:2.

So, this beast is a peacekeeper, even though this monster looks like it’s about to rip your face apart. I assume this is the new “peace” we can expect during the “Great Reset.” Either we accept the globalists’ demands coming from the United Nations or we will be eaten by the rainbow beast. Nothing says peace and security like the cultures in pre-Columbian Mexico that built massive temples filled with human skulls. The Aztecs, Mayans, and other Mesoamerican cultures all participated in human sacrifices. The truth is that these civilizations weren’t known for their peace, but for their cruelty and conquest!

However, the papacy, the beast of prophecy, who likewise professes to be the custodian of international peace and security, has also exhibited this same kind of “peace.” Regrettably, we already know where their peace will lead to:

“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” Daniel 8:25.

Since the United Nations and the Vatican are globalist organizations that are inseparable, maybe it is appropriate to have a ferocious and savage beast to represent the “peaceful” policies of the oppressive vaccine mandates. This rainbow-colored beast is also a fitting depiction of the “peaceful” LGBT+ agenda that wants to impose their sexuality on the world. Apparently, this is how the “common good” will be achieved.

Leftist policymakers at the United Nations (Rome’s counterpart) want to force you to share the bathroom with the opposite gender. They want to compel you to fund the abortion industry. They want to coerce you into getting the Covid-19 vaccine. They want to intimidate you into embracing the LGBT+ agenda. If you resist their “peaceful” policies, you will be oppressed, persecuted and feel the teeth of the ferocious beast system. It truly is amazing that even our religious liberty leaders have somehow succeeded in redefining “religious liberty” and are now attempting to persuade us that forced vaccinations are actually good.

Force is the last resort of every false religion. At first it tries attraction, as the king of Babylon tried the power of music and outward show. If these attractions, invented by men inspired by Satan, failed to make men worship the image, the hungry flames of the furnace were ready to consume them. So it will be now. The papacy has exercised her power to compel men to obey her, and she will continue to do so. We need the same spirit that was manifested by God’s servants in the conflict with paganism” (Bible Commentary, Vol. 7, p. 976).

Unfortunately, far too many Christians are bowing and apologizing for not being submissive enough to the powers that be. The powerful globalists don’t want us to only be obedient; they want us to promote their “peaceful” ideals within our church communities as well. During the “Great Reset,” the only right that freedom-loving people will have is to comply, or you suffer severe punishment. This is why the rainbow-colored beast that has been installed at the United Nations is a fitting representation of the modern-day oppressive mandates we see today.

I’m not an art critic, but if I were to interpret this multicolored winged monstrosity, I’d say the underlying message being communicated is this: “Lie down and be quiet or we will crush you into the ground.” However, we don’t need to be afraid of this beast nor the one described in Revelation 13. We don’t need to be afraid of the image of the beast or the mark of the beast. Let me tell you who we should fear:

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28.

“Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” Revelation 14:7.

http://adventmessenger.org/when-the-church-aligns-itself-with-the-state-to-discriminate-against-the-unvaccinated/

Quoted article below may be viewed at above link. Any extra emphasis is mine.

When the Church Aligns Itself with the State to Discriminate Against the Unvaccinated

Every day, a precedent is being set for disposing of both individuals and their freedoms, which is growing more open, formal, and widespread, and in which all denominational hierarchy participate. We refer to the exclusion of those who refuse to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. One of the most serious cases that we have seen in a Western nation is that of Austria. As of February 2022, Austria is forcing its entire adult population to be vaccinated and all conscientious objectors face fines of $3,600 euros ($4,080 US), followed by a fine of $7,200 euros ($8,160 US), and/or 4 months in prison. [1]

Beginning in 2022, the “Great Reset” (purging) will commence. Freedom-loving people will begin going to prison for state-sponsored and church-supported vaccine mandates. This is wrong on many levels. Regardless of your position on vaccines, we must all speak out against this oppressive vaccine enforcement mechanism that will put people in prison and destroy families. But instead, religious organizations have aligned themselves with the state to promote the ideology of the Beast of Revelation, citing Pope Francis, who said that taking the vaccine is an “act of love” to promote the “common good.” [2] If this is not a precursor to the mark of the beast, where church and state work together to violate the freedom of conscience, then what is?

True Christian love and morals are devoted to the protection of human life and liberty. Real people are being vilified and punished as a result of these forced vaccinations. This is a violation of people’s humanity and fundamental rights. The religions claim to preach “love,” but their vision of love is one that welcomes oppression and persecution as part of the “Great Reset.” It is amazing how the modern church has become so blind as to change the biblical love of God for something that will justify seeing their members fined and imprisoned, and not say anything.

Which religions actually support the vaccine mandates? The Vanderbilt University Medical Center published a list of religions that support the Covid-19 vaccinations. [3] The list is as follows:

Judaism
Jainism
Islam
Hinduism
Buddhism
Roman Catholicism
Eastern Orthodox
Oriental Orthodox
Amish
Anglican
Baptist
Latter-Day Saints (Mormon)
Congregational
Episcopalian
Jehovah’s Witness
Lutheran
Mennonite
Methodist
African Methodist Episcopal
Quaker
Pentecostal
Presbyterian
Seventh-day Adventist
Unitarian-Universalist
Scientology


Masks and social distance were the first steps, followed by Covid-19 immunizations and passports. They now intend to fine and imprison anyone who has not been vaccinated. Where will the road to tyranny and totalitarianism lead to if the churches do not speak out now against these abuses? Unvaccinated parents will lose custody of their children as a result of this. For the “good of all,” all unvaccinated people will be labeled as lepers and deported to concentration camps.

Where are the churches that will show compassion to their members and defend the rights of the unvaccinated? Tragically, the churches do not care about these souls. Sure, they will take their “love gifts” and monetary offerings, but they don’t care what happens to them. In Adventism, as in the rest of the churches listed above, religious liberty leaders defend these vaccine enforcement mechanisms and state clearly that they are not violations of “religious liberty.” [4] Where is Ganoune Diop’s famous speech about the “human dignity of every person?” Are the unvaccinated not humans? Do they not have basic human rights as well? Are we okay with the lives of our members and their families being ruined by heavy fines and imprisonment? Or do we just care about their wallets and not their souls?

This is not the first time that so-called “believers” were on the wrong side of history, and I say this to their eternal shame. Most Christians largely ignored the evils of slavery. The majority of Christians in Germany and Europe kept silent about the Nazis’ atrocities. Sadly, most Christians today, including Seventh-day Adventists, are turning a blind eye to the deliberate, wholesale targeting and persecution of the unvaccinated.

When the Nazis began purging people from their society, the German people were complicit through their silence. This was especially true for church leaders. Pastor Martin Niemöller was the author of the “First They Came” poem that illustrates the silence and cowardice of the German people, including his own. Here is Martin Niemöller’s own confession:

“They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.” [5]

Remaining neutral while unvaccinated men, women and children are being harassed and their lives and fortunes are being threatened makes us part of the problem. Our brothers and sisters in the faith are under assault, and the rest of the body of Christ has the responsibility to speak out for them and support them. If we don’t, we will soon find ourselves among the persecuted. It is only a matter of time. But I think that our religious liberty leaders are going to ignore this particular problem until it sneaks up and bites them on their rear-ends! If we don’t speak out now, it’s only a matter of time before the lions come for you.

We become complicit in this current crisis if we remain silent when unvaccinated men, women, and children are harassed and their lives and fortunes are jeopardized. Our Christian brothers and sisters are being persecuted, and the rest of the church has a responsibility to speak up for them and support them. If we don’t, we’ll be among the persecuted in no time. It’s only a matter of time before it happens. But I believe that our religious liberty leaders are going to continue to ignore this particular problem until it sneaks up and bites them on the behind. It’s only a matter of time before the lions come for you if we don’t speak up now.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Code

Quoted material below, from link above.

Quote
The ten points of the Nuremberg Code

The ten points of the code were given in the section of the judges' verdict entitled "Permissible Medical Experiments


1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

2. The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.

3. The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.

4. The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.

5. No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.

6. The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.

7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.

8. The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.

9. During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.

10. During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgment re
quired of him that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.

For the set of guidelines for determining what constitutes a war crime, see Nuremberg Principles. For the denaturalization of German Jews, see Nuremberg Laws.

The Nuremberg Code (German: Nürnberger Kodex) is a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation created by the U.S. v Brandt court as one result of the Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War. In a review written on the 50th anniversary of the Brandt verdict, Katz writes that "a careful reading of the judgment suggests that [the authors] wrote the Code for the practice of human experimentation whenever it is being conducted.”

Background

The origin of the Code began in pre–World War II German politics, particularly during the 1930s and 1940s. Starting in the mid-1920s, German physicians, usually proponents of racial hygiene, were accused by the public and the medical society of unethical medical practices. The use of racial hygiene was supported by the German government in order to promote an Aryan race. Racial hygiene extremists merged with National Socialism to promote the use of biology to accomplish their goals of racial purity, a core concept in the Nationalist ideology. Physicians were attracted to the scientific ideology and aided in the establishment of National Socialist Physicians' League in 1929 to "purify the German medical community of 'Jewish Bolshevism'." Criticism was becoming prevalent; Alfons Stauder, member of the Reich Health Office, claimed that the "dubious experiments have no therapeutic purpose", and Fredrich von Muller, physician and the president of the Deutsche Akademie, joined the criticism.

In response to the criticism of unethical human experimentation, the Weimar Republic (Germany's government from 1919 to 1933) issued "Guidelines for New Therapy and Human Experimentation". The guidelines were based on beneficence and non-maleficence, but also stressed legal doctrine of informed consent. The guidelines clearly distinguished the difference between therapeutic and non-therapeutic research. For therapeutic purposes, the guidelines allowed administration without consent only in dire situations, but for non-therapeutic purposes any administration without consent was strictly forbidden. However, the guidelines from Weimar were negated by Adolf Hitler. By 1942, the Nazi party included more than 38,000 German physicians, who helped carry out medical programs such as the Sterilization Law.

After World War II, a series of trials were held to hold members of the Nazi party responsible for a multitude of war crimes. The trials were approved by President Harry Truman on 2 May 1945, and were led by the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union. They began on 20 November 1945, in Nuremberg, Germany, in what became known as the Nuremberg trials. In the trial of USA v Brandt, which became known as the "Doctors' Trial", German physicians responsible for conducting unethical medical procedures on humans during the war were tried. They focused on physicians who conducted inhumane and unethical human experiments in concentration camps, in addition to those who were involved in over 3,500,000 sterilizations of German citizens.

Several of the accused argued that their experiments differed little from those used before the war, and that there was no law that differentiated between legal and illegal experiments. This worried Drs. Andrew Ivy and Leo Alexander, who worked with the prosecution during the trial. In April 1947, Dr. Alexander submitted a memorandum to the United States Counsel for War Crimes outlining six points for legitimate medical research.

An early version of the Code known as the Memorandum, which stated explicit voluntary consent from patients are required for human experimentation, was drafted on 9 August 1947. On 20 August 1947, the judges delivered their verdict against Karl Brandt and 22 others. The verdict reiterated the Memorandum's points and, in response to expert medical advisers for the prosecution, revised the original six points of the Memorandum to ten points. The ten points became known as the Code, which includes such principles as informed consent and absence of coercion; properly formulated scientific experimentation; and beneficence towards experiment participants. It is thought to have been mainly based on the Hippocratic Oath, which was interpreted as endorsing the experimental approach to medicine while protecting the patient.

Authorship ‘controversy’

The code was initially ignored, but gained much greater significance about 20 years after it was written. As a result, there were substantial rival claims for the creation of the Code. Some claimed that Harold Sebring, one of the three U.S. judges who presided over the Doctors' trial, was the author. Leo Alexander, MD and Andrew Ivy, MD, the prosecution's chief medical expert witnesses, were also each identified as authors. In his letter to Maurice Henry Pappworth, an English physician and the author of the 1967 book Human Guinea Pigs, Andrew Ivy claimed sole authorship of the code. Leo Alexander, approximately 30 years after the trial, also claimed sole authorship. However, after careful reading of the transcript of the Doctors' trial, background documents, and the final judgements, it is more accepted that the authorship was shared and the code grew out of the trial itself.

Importance

The Code has not been officially accepted as law by any nation or as official ethics guidelines by any association. In fact, the Code's reference to Hippocratic duty to the individual patient and the need to provide information was not initially favored by the American Medical Association. Katz observes that the Western world initially dismissed the Nuremberg Code as a "code for barbarians, but unnecessary (or superfluous) for ordinary physicians.” Additionally, the final judgment did not specify whether the Code should be applied to cases such as political prisoners, convicted felons, and healthy volunteers. The lack of clarity, the brutality of the unethical medical experiments, and the uncompromising language of the Code created an image that it was designed for singularly egregious transgressions.

However, the Code is considered by some to be the most important document in the history of clinical research ethics, which had a massive influence on global human rights. In America, the Code and the related Declaration of Helsinki form the basis for the Code of Federal Regulations Title 45 Part 46, which are the regulations issued by the United States Department of Health and Human Services for the ethical treatment of human subjects, and are used in Institutional Review Boards (IRBs). In 1966, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights was adopted by the United Nations, and supposed to be in force by 23 March 1976. Article seven prohibits experiments conducted without the "free consent to medical or scientific experimentation" of the subject. The Covenant has 173 states parties as of September 2019.

In his 2014 review, Gaw observes that the Code "not only entered the legal landscape, but also became the prototype for all future codes of ethical practice across the globe." The idea of free or informed consent also served as the basis for International Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research Involving Human Subjects proposed by the World Health Organization. Another notable symposium review was published by the Medical University of Vienna in 2017: "Medical Ethics in the 70 Years after the Nuremberg Code, 1947 to the Present". President and Rector Markus Muller writes in his introduction that the Code "constitutes one of the most important milestones in the history of medicine, providing for the first time a proper framework for research on human subjects. Sadly, this milestone was not a voluntary, precautionary measure resulting from enlightened humanity, it only came into existence in the aftermath of dreadful Nazi atrocities. Following its conception, the Nuremberg Code bore rich fruit in multiple legal regards, becoming a cornerstone of clinical research and bioethics.”

Every vaccine mandate regarding Covid especially, having been rushed through development, insufficiently tested, and therefore prematurely put into use, is a violation of the above Nuremberg Code. Especially since there are so many ill effects, even deaths associated with inoculation. Apparently todays leaders are leaning back toward authoritarian Nazi type medical control over their peasants, I mean citizens. No surprise of course, that the Vatican which was the first political entity to sign an accord with Adolf Hitlers Nazi party, also apparently supports such mandates. In the end, this world will have no excuse for allowing this institution with such a very dark history, to rise again as a “moral” religious and political authority. All who choose her usurped authority over and above that of God’s word, and the natural individual rights God has given all of us, will suffer her same fate.

Rev 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Big Business Gets Its Wings by Partnering With Pope Francis

Pope Francis has reached out to some of the world’s biggest corporations in hopes to partner with them. His goal is to help one of the biggest influential systems on our planet align with a more inclusive, fair, and sustainable economic landscape. The Pope wishes to develop goals with each of these international companies, focused on areas such as climate action, peace, justice, gender equality, and education, reports NBC News. The council that he is forming has 27 core members who represent over $2 trillion in the market with a combined workforce of over 200 million.

This council will be called the ‘Guardians of Inclusive Capitalism’ and, with members such as Johnson & Johnson’s CEO Alex Gorsky, Mastercard’s CEO Ajay Banga, and Bank of America’s CEO Brian Moynihan, this council’s influence will be monumental. On their website, inclusivecapitalism.com, it states that they are committed to action and “seeks real, lasting change for the good.” It goes on to list their values which are trust, fair, responsible, dynamic, sustainable. They tried to create these values based on the fundamental sense of justice according to the Catholic Church. This is not the first time Pope Francis has shocked not only the church but the world.

Since the start of his papacy, Pope Francis has contradicted the Catholic Church’s previous beliefs on abortions, same-sex marriage, contraception and many more issues. He came into a Vatican bureaucracy that had caused the previous pope to resign and decided to increase financial transparency, separating rival groups of Italians with influence on the Roman Curia, and replaced traditionalist seats with moderate clergymen as the church prepared for important debates about the Vatican’s process and nature of the family, the New York Times reported. Pope Francis is a pope with more modern views than most. People speculate that the pope before Francis, Benedict, resigned because he knew the church needed to change and progress with the world and that Benedict could not keep up.

The Guardians of Inclusive Capitalism will meet annually with Pope Francis and the leader of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development at the Vatican, Cardinal Peter Turkson, to continue to pursue their vision and values. Ajay Banga stated that he believes that “Faith cannot be used to pull up apart. Faith is meant to bring us together” in the Council’s introduction video. This is exciting news for the world in the year of 2020 where we have seen unparalleled wildfires worldwide, protests across numerous countries for a multitude of reasons, millions out of a job, and a global health crisis. Hopefully this Council has the ability to make some good changes moving forward.

Yes of course, it is always good to put those who help create, support, and sustain one crisis after another unto self desired and proclaimed fear mongering political goals, in positions of greater influence and power in this world. Or else, how will they ever accomplish said fear mongering self exalting political aspirations? Just one more acquisition by BABYLON THE GREAT, unto global intoxication, manipulation, submission, ending in damnation.

Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. 9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. 11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

If Rome is going to control who can buy or sell, they will have to control those who sell, and the monies of those who would buy.

Pope Joins Rothschilds and Mega-banks for “Inclusive Capitalism”

Pope Francis and the Vatican are doubling down on the Deep State push for globalism and technocracy, forming a highly controversial coalition for “Inclusive Capitalism” that brings together crony mega-banks, Big Business, the United Nations, the Rothschild banking dynasty, the Rockefeller Foundation, and other key institutions of the global elite. Critics blasted and mocked the scheme.

The goal, according to the alliance, is to “evolve” capitalism to become more “inclusive” and “sustainable.” This includes helping to achieve the widely criticized United Nations Agenda 2030 “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) that would usher in a technocratic system of global governance. In short, the New World Order agenda is getting a major boost from leaders of one of the world’s major religions.

TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/

The concept of “inclusive capitalism,” sometimes referred to as “stakeholder capitalism,” represents a fusion of central-planning and private property very much along the lines of fascism or technocracy, as The New American has been highlighting for many years. Under Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist regime, for instance, private owners were allowed to keep their enterprises and even continue earning a profit. However, the Nazi regime told them what to do.

Under a true free-market system, business seek to earn profit for their owners by best satisfying the needs and wants of customers. This ensures fair prices and high quality. With “inclusive capitalism,” however, global elites and their technocratic administrators — very much including those in this new coalition — establish various other goals and objectives including “environmental,” “social,” and so on. In short, “inclusive capitalism” is not actually capitalism.

According to a press release about the new scheme, the Vatican partnership puts members of the group — some of the largest and most powerful economic actors on the planet — “under the moral guidance” of longtime critic of capitalism Pope Francis and the Vatican he leads. Cardinal Turkson, who runs the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, would serve as the pope’s emissary in guiding the new alliance.

“An economic system that is fair, trustworthy, and capable of addressing the most profound challenges facing humanity and our planet is urgently needed,” Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope and a fervent proponent of globalism, said in a statement. By joining the alliance, members “have taken up the challenge by seeking ways to make capitalism become a more inclusive instrument for integral human well-being,” he added.

Each year, the leaders of the organizations and firms involved will meet with the pope to advance the council’s mission. “What is needed is a fundamental renewal of hearts and minds so that the human person may always be placed at the center of social, cultural and economic life,” said Francis, without elaborating on what exactly that would entail.

Known as the “Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican,” leaders involved in the alliance come from organizations claiming to represent more than $10.5 trillion under management, $2.1 trillion in market capitalization, 200 million workers, and offices spread across 163 countries. Some of the most powerful firms, banks, and foundations on Earth are represented.

In all, there are 27 “Guardians of Inclusive Capitalism” so far. The list includes more than a few that have long promoted homosexuality, transgenderism, abortion, race-mongering, and other sins completely at odds with Catholic teachings and biblical morality. Among them: leaders of the UN, Visa, Bank of America, Johnson & Johnson, BP, MasterCard, Salesforce, the State of California, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and more.

It was not immediately clear whether the organizations and institutions involved would quit funding and promoting abortion, sodomy, gender confusion, and other issues now that they are “under the moral guidance” of the Vatican. One thing they all agreed to do, however, was fight against the gas of life, also known as carbon dioxide, which some government-funded scientists claim causes “climate change.”

Also at the helm of the scheme alongside Francis is Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a member of the ultra-wealthy banking dynasty who serves as the managing partner of “Inclusive Capital Partners.” To get a sense of the family’s influence, consider that the Rothschild banking dynasty funded totalitarian George Soros early on through the Banque Privee in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to historian and Rothschild apologist Niall Ferguson, the massive power goes back centuries. “The Rothschilds had decided the outcome of the Napoleonic Wars by putting their financial weight behind Britain,” he wrote in his book The World’s Banker: The History of the House of Rothschild. Imagine having the power to decide the outcome of a war between the most powerful governments on the planet.

Due to their massive wealth extracted from humanity via the banking system, many critics consider the Rothschild family to be the ultimate modern-day example of “money changers.” As recounted in the Bible, an outraged Jesus Christ chased money changers out of the Jewish Temple.

“This Council will follow the warning from Pope Francis to listen to ‘the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor’ and answer society’s demands for a more equitable and sustainable model of growth,” Rothschild said about the new scheme, claiming “capitalism” has “left too many people behind, led to degradation of our planet, and is not widely trusted in society.”

Among the schemes of the new Rothschild-Francis-megabank-CEO-UN coalition will be the pursuit not just of “equality of opportunity,” but “equitable outcomes,” the council’s website explains. Of course, aside from equality under the law, which has long been established in the United States and other Western nations, free people can never be equal, and equal people can never be free.

Despite being among the most unequal systems on earth, with Communist Party bosses living large while the proletariat starves, “equality of outcome” has long been a rallying cry of mass-murdering communist dictators everywhere. Ironically, societies with the highest levels of economic freedom also rank among the most equal. They also have by far the cleanest environments and the lowest levels of poverty.

Members of the new “Council” pledged to support goals such as “environmental sustainability” and “gender equality,” too. While the terms sound nice, when used by globalists in the UN and other institutions, “sustainable development” is a term used to conceal a radical agenda that seeks to undermine private-property rights. “Gender equality,” meanwhile, is a term frequently used to promote feminism, abortion, a war on the nuclear family, an assault on the value of motherhood, a blurring of gender and gender norms, and more.

Of course, the Rothschild push to “reform” so-called capitalism is not new. In 2014, The New American magazine exposed a Rothschild-sponsored “Inclusive Capitalism” summit in London that was aimed at peddling globalism and shredding what remained of the free-enterprise system under the guise of helping mankind. The Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, which have been promoting the agenda for years, were listed as “supporting organizations.”

Attendees and speakers included Prince Charles, then-International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, then-Bank of England boss Mark Carney, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, and more. Also in attendance: pension-fund bosses, Big Business CEOs, and other top figures representing an estimated one third of the world’s investable wealth.

One of the keynote speakers at the summit was Lagarde, at the time serving as the managing director of the IMF, an organization which for decades has extracted wealth from the Third World to enrich the establishment while imposing failed crony-capitalist regimes on victim nations. Quoting Karl Marx, and with no trace of irony in her voice, Lagarde said capitalism “carries the seeds of its own destruction.”

No jab, no job: Vatican gets tough with COVID anti-vaxxers

by Reuters

Thursday, 18 February 2021 11:49 GMT

A Vatican decree now says those who refuse to get a vaccination without health reasons could be dismissed

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, Feb 18 (Reuters) - The Vatican has told employees that they may risk losing their jobs if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccination without legitimate health reasons.

A decree by Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, effectively the governor of Vatican City, said getting a vaccine was "the responsible choice" because of the risk of harming other people.

Vatican City, at 108 acres the world's smallest state, has several thousand employees, most of whom live in Italy. Its vaccination programme began last month and Pope Francis, 84, was among the first to get the jab.

The seven-page decree says that those who cannot get vaccinated for health reasons may be given another position, presumably where they would have contact with fewer people, but will receive the same pay even if the new post is a demotion.

But the decree said those who refuse to get a vaccination without sufficient reason would be subject to a specific provision in a 2011 law on employee rights and duties.

The article in the 2011 law says employees who refuse "preventive measures" could be subjected to "varying degrees of consequences that could lead to dismissal".

The decree was signed on Feb. 8 and later posted on the website of the governor's department.

Pope Francis is a big supporter of vaccines to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

"It is an ethical choice because you are gambling with your health, with your life, but you are also gambling with the lives of others," he said in an interview with an Italian television station last month.

The Vatican has made a COVID-19 vaccination obligatory for journalists accompanying Pope Francis on his trip to Iraq next month.

Bertello, who signed the decree, tested positive for coronavirus in December and went into self-isolation.

There have been fewer than 30 cases of coronavirus in the Vatican City, most of them among the Swiss Guard, who live in a communal barracks. (Reporting By Philip Pullella Editing by Gareth Jones)

The Pope leads by way of example, along with those papal minions who are already on the same page, and then the papal minion mega companies and leaders he is already in bed with follow the man of sin's lead.

Coronavirus: 'No jab, no job' policies may be legal for new staff

18 February

It may be legal for companies to insist on new staff being vaccinated as a condition of their employment, the justice secretary has said.

However, Robert Buckland said it was unlikely bosses could make existing workers have vaccines under their current contracts.

Downing Street has said it would be "discriminatory" to order people to be vaccinated to keep their job.

But some firms say they will not hire new staff who refuse to have the jab.

In an interview with ITV on Wednesday, Mr Buckland said compelling new staff to be inoculated could, in theory, be possible if it was written into their contracts.

However, employers would probably need to take legal action if existing staff refused such an order, he said.

"I think that has to be the case because we're dealing with existing terms of contracts of employment, thousands of existing contracts,” he said.

He added that the legality of “no jab, no job” would depend “very much on the terms of employment and the particular contract”.

"Generally speaking I'd be surprised if there were contracts of employment existing now that did make that approach lawful. I think frankly the issue would have to be tested.”

London-based Pimlico Plumbers is one company that has said it will not hire new staff who have refused the vaccination on non-medical grounds.

Employment lawyers initially questioned the move, but on Wednesday founder Charlie Mullins said he had been advised it was legal.

"We've obviously been talking to lawyers and they're very happy that we can add this proposal to any new workers that start with us once the vaccine is rolled out," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

"We'll be using the new contracts two to three months from now. When people come along for a job with us, if they're not happy to sign that, then again that's their choice, but they certainly won't be given a job with Pimlico Plumbers."

Care home operator Barchester Healthcare has also said all new hires will be obliged to get the jab.

"With regards to our staff, we are doing all we can to reassure and encourage those who are a little more reticent to have the vaccination, and we are also ensuring that all new staff must have the vaccination (if they medically can) before starting work looking after our vulnerable residents and patients who are in our care," Barchester Healthcare wrote on its website.................................

No jab, no job? Firing employees for refusing the vaccine

The 'no jab, no job' argument is gaining traction

As the world continues to battle with the COVID-19 virus, employers are divided over whether or not to make vaccines mandatory. The ‘no jab, no job’ argument has some executives on side, with airline Cathay Pacific recently announcing their plans to make vaccines mandatory for all aircrew. However, how legal is it to fundamentally insist on vaccinating teams? Do employees have a choice in all of this?   

“You can't force an employee to undergo a medical procedure,” added Mike MacLellan, partner at Crawford Chondon & Partners LLP. “You can’t hold someone down and inject them - that's assault. There are limited situations in which a condition of employment can stipulate being vaccinated. For example, we see this in childcare – where in Ontario childcare employees are often required to be inoculated against diseases that could really impact children – such as measles, mumps, and rubella.”

However, that’s really the only current exception to the rule. According to Mike, most employers are not able to require their employees to take a vaccine. On the other hand, employers do have obligations under their jurisdiction’s health and safety legislation.

“In Ontario, we have the Occupational Health and Safety Act. That obligation means employers must take all reasonable steps to avoid workplace hazards – and an infectious disease that caused global pandemic certainly qualifies as a workplace hazard.”

Essentially, there could be a different approach for every employer. As long as organizations take the necessary measures to keep their workplaces safe and workplace policies, mandating a vaccine may not be needed.

“We’re advising our clients of the importance of having a clear, transparent policy in place for keeping the workplace safe – one which allows for the many different thresholds of what’s reasonable, depending on whether or not employees are vaccinated.”

The fact that employers can’t force their workers to be vaccinated opens up questions around refusal. There are many reasons why a person may choose not to be jabbed – from personal to medical to religious – but what does this means for their future employment?

“In most cases you can’t just fire someone purely because they refuse to be vaccinated,” added Mike. “If the law changes, then I could see that being applicable in a childcare or elder care setting, in which the employees are directly dealing with a vulnerable person. As it stands, Ontario doesn’t have a law on the vaccine yet - the closest thing we have are cases dealing with flu shots and masks.

“I anticipate that when public health guidelines loosen for people who have been fully vaccinated, we'll be able to adjust our workplace policies too. For instance, a person who outright refuses the vaccine can’t be forced to have it - but in order for the employer to fulfil their legal duties to maintain a healthy and safe workplace, different rules are going to apply to these people. And in my opinion, so long as employers are being reasonable and treating their employees with good faith, I think that would be completely appropriate.”

Many more articles could be quoted of course. Roman Catholic papal puppet Joe Biden of course, issued his vaccine mandate which specifically echoed the Popes policy at the Vatican upon our entire nation. So much for Constitutional separation of church and state as our founders intended. We are increasingly the subjects of the papacy. The dark ages are back upon us now, and the light will only continue to become dimmer. Darkness is increasingly covering the globe, only to be broken by that light which will end all darkness and evil forever.

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

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.

America
THE JESUIT REVIEW

COP26 did not go far enough. It’s time to take the Pope Francis-approach to

The COP26 climate summit in Glasgow was a tale of two cities: one afloat on bold pledges and new promises, the other sinking under the weight of “Greta Mania” and the chants of “blah, blah, blah” from the followers of the Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg. Not even Barack Obama’s celebrated oratory or a surprise U.S.-China cooperation pact could reconcile the differences.

To better understand the contrast, we can explore another pair of cities: Paris, where a climate accord was hammered out in 2015, versus Rome and its body of Catholic thought. They reveal vastly different perspectives on climate change.

The Paris climate agreement of 2015 was heralded as a major accomplishment, but what was achieved after two decades of negotiations? Voluntary intentions by countries to do better, called Nationally Determined Contributions. These are a bit like New Year’s resolutions, albeit on a grander scale, and we all know the fate of such resolutions. True to form, the Paris resolutions are falling well short of the mark.

But we should not have expected anything more out of Paris than weak volunteerism rooted in narrow national self-interest. The global system of neoliberalism and the structure of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change predisposed the Paris Agreement to be limited in vision and inadequate to the demands of climate change. To expect otherwise is to expect, in Cervantes’s words, a pear from an elm tree.

The Paris approach had everything backward. It began with the scientific data of global warming and manufactured elaborate methods to stop it, never pondering the larger question of, “To what ends?” Rome, or the Catholic Church, begins rightly by defining life’s purpose and then searches for sociopolitical structures that will get us there.

Paris takes as its starting point the Hobbesian view that the natural state of humanity is “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.” Rome starts with the Genesis claim that creation “is good, it is good, it is very good.” Paris expects virtuous behavior from an anthropological premise that privileges self-interest and individual liberty. Rome understands that virtue flows from the pursuit of the common good defined by solidarity, charity and reciprocity.

Paris asks us to reason our way to ecological sustainability from an ideological starting point of planetary plunder. Rome encourages us to use Ignatian spirituality to seek God in all things while instructing us that we are all stewards of the earth.

Paris seeks climate solutions through an elaborate system of transactional market exchanges. Rome instructs us that salvation comes through the grace of covenantal, not contractual, relationships. Paris seeks solutions fueled by the profit motive, encouraged by market reforms and “green growth.” Rome is driven by the motive of the prophet who speaks of love, justice and forgiveness shorn of any enchantment of mammon.

Rome therefore informs the climate change challenge on two levels: the epistemological, by properly framing the question and identifying the root causes of the problem; and the practical, by offering operational principles upon which sociopolitical solutions can emerge.

The Roman document that most obviously serves as counterpoise to the Paris Agreement is “Laudato Si’.” Pope Francis instructs us that all things are connected and that climate change, social injustice and economic inequality are inextricably linked. Throughout the encyclical, Francis explains how our idolatry of the machine and our unbridled pursuit of narrow self-interest crowd out any sense of justice and the common good.

The encyclical reveals that the outer work of climate change is dependent upon the inner work of spiritual awareness. Paris’s market mechanisms and technological fixes, while helpful in pushing us in the right direction, fail to ask where that path leads. New technologies can help ameliorate the symptoms of climate change, but they can never address the sources of climate change.

Catholic social thought—emphasizing the primacy of personalism and solidarity—tells us that local action illuminates the roadmap to climate solutions. The principle of subsidiarity also tells us that while international agreements may be necessary in certain circumstances, our default should be the local community. Climate change and renewable energy policy speak to this principle, as local jurisdictions are consistently at the forefront of creative climate action. In this respect, the church’s preferential option for the poor (and for the planet) rests on a preferential nod to the local.

The church emphasizes the public square, where we come together not as consumers to accumulate but as citizens to deliberate in pursuit of the common good. This deliberation emphasizes healing and restoration, not punishment and retribution. Thus, the pursuit of the Jesuit goal of cura personalis, or caring for the whole person, may cumulatively lead to cura planetis.

This explains the limitations of Glasgow. Those driven by the ethos of Rome are thwarted by the pathos of falling short in Paris. It is difficult to discover the new when we cling so tightly to the old. This moment requires that we loosen our fixation on the Paris Agreement and realize that the structures of the old—the institutions that depend upon perpetual consumerism and the desecration of our environment—are in desperate need of reform and transformation. A neoliberal solution (the Paris Agreement) will not solve a problem (climate change) compounded by neoliberalism. For that, we need to return to the verities found in all religions, Roman and beyond, Abrahamic and Indigenous, that speak to the virtues of sociopolitical structures rooted in the spiritual values that define our humanity and frame our communal relationship with God’s creation.

Just keep pouring that wine, all those who resist yet partake, will eventually become intoxicated enough to capitulate. Then your goal can be realized, to your own demise and that of this world also. So be it, as God's word has determined. Nevertheless, tidings from the east will continue to greatly disturb you until the very end.

Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. 45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Socialism, Modernism and Catholic Doctrine

The Church’s social teachings suggest a “Just Third Way” — an economic system that respects the dignity of the person

By Michael D. Greaney

Following the financial, industrial, and political revolutions of the eighteenth century, changes in the way people could be productive and participate in society called age-old ways of life into question. As the nineteenth century dawned, what would be called socialism and modernism gained a new foothold.

As Msgr. Ronald Knox explained in his magnum opus, Enthusiasm (1950) — defining enthusiasm or “ultrasupernaturalism” as an excess of charity causing disunity — the fundamental principle of socialism and modernism has existed from the beginning of time. Essentially the belief that the end justifies the means, it allows anyone who believes something strongly enough to accept contradictions between what reason demonstrates and what is held by faith. This creates what G.K. Chesterton called “the double mind of man.”

It is, however, never permissible to redefine natural law derived from reason or religious doctrine held by faith, even to gain what seems to be the “greatest good.” Contradictions put faith and reason in conflict, instead of allowing one to guide and illuminate the other.

Capitalism (defined here as concentrated capital ownership) helped create the conditions that led to socialism. Socialism, however, was first proposed after the French Revolution as a replacement, not for capitalism, but for Christianity, particularly Catholicism, as explained in Henri de Saint-Simon’s 1825 book, Le Nouveau Christianisme. As la démocratie religieuse — “the Democratic Religion” — socialism was intended to supplant all traditional political, domestic, and religious arrangements.

The goal was to abolish government, marriage and family, and religion, merging everything into “the Kingdom of God on Earth.” Under various labels, e.g., “the New Christianity,” “Neo-Catholicism,” “the Religion of Humanity,” the idea, according to Chesterton, was to invent a new religion under the name of Christianity. Orestes Brownson claimed that socialism, by adopting Christianity’s outward forms and language, was a heresy so subtle it could “deceive the very elect, so that no flesh should be saved.”

In 1832, Pope Gregory XVI issued the first social encyclical, Mirari Vos, condemning the heresy.

In 1834 he issued Singulari Nos, describing the heresy as rerum novarum — “new things.” Chief among the new things was “the theory of certitude” of a renegade priest, Félicité de Lamennais, considered by some as the founder of liberal Catholicism, who said that reason resides in the collective, instead of in individual human persons. It can only be discerned by the Pope, who is infallible in faith, morals, philosophy, and theology.

Outraged at the condemnation his ideas received, de Lamennais repudiated his priesthood, renounced Christianity, and founded his own religion of humanity.
Gregory XVI also sponsored the revival of Thomism, the rigorous philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, to educate people in the truths of religion and philosophy. In the 1840s, Msgr. Aloysius Taparelli first applied the term “social justice” in a Thomist sense. Taparelli’s concept of social justice was not a right that society has by nature – something impossible in Thomism.

Society is a human construct, so that any rights society has must come from human persons. God built rights into human nature, not into the abstraction of “humanity.” Abstractions are made by man, not by God. Human beings “abstract” (generalize) because we are imperfect and lack direct, “practical” knowledge of everything. God is omniscient, and does not abstract.

According to Taparelli, social justice is the practice of virtue by individuals within the confines of natural law as defined by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. All that does not violate the natural law, especially the natural rights of life, liberty, and private property, should be done to benefit individuals directly, and society indirectly.

Pope Pius IX issued social encyclicals, but also attempted to reform the political system. Radicals who wanted to abolish the Church, and reactionaries who wanted to return to a mythical past, both thwarted his efforts, leading to the loss of the Papal States.

As a religion, socialism requires acceptance of modernist doctrine. Recognizing this, Pius IX called the First Vatican Council, which defined two authentic Catholic doctrines, both directed against de Lamennais’s theory of certitude, but also at socialism and modernism as a whole. These were papal infallibility and the primacy of reason.

Infallibility was defined not to expand the scope of the doctrine, but rather to limit it to faith and morals, and then only under certain conditions. Defining the primacy of reason — that knowledge of God’s existence and of the natural law can be known by human reason alone — made it clear that nothing held by faith can contradict reason, any more than reason can contradict faith.

For more than a decade after his election, Pope Leo XIII continued Pius IX’s program, but something was missing. Doctrinal definitions and political reforms did nothing to improve people’s daily lives. The Church lost ground to the new things that promised a Heaven on Earth if only Christianity was transformed or abolished and socialism instituted.

In 1891, however, Leo XIII issued Rerum Novarum, a new type of social encyclical proposing a specific program to counter socialism and modernism. He declared the conflict created by socialism can only be resolved by empowering “as many as possible of the people” with capital ownership.

Based on his practical experience as governor of Benevento and Perugia, Leo XIII recognized that a just society and spiritual growth and development require material needs be met in a manner consistent with natural law and befitting the demands of individual human dignity. This is not by making people dependent on the State or a capitalist élite for their material needs (except as an expedient in an emergency), but by making it possible for people to meet their own needs through their own efforts, which can ordinarily be done only by owning capital.
There was no flaw in the pope’s principles in Rerum Novarum, but there was a serious problem with the practical program he outlined. The only means Leo XIII mentioned by which people could acquire ownership were inheritance and saving out of increased wages. Inheritance doesn’t work if there is nothing to inherit, and raising wages without a corresponding increase in productivity raises the price level, making saving even more difficult.

As a result, capitalists dismissed expanded ownership as a prudential suggestion, while socialists claimed the encyclical endorsed socialism by redefining private property. Both confused the principle of private property with the suggested means to acquire ownership. Socialists touted Rerum Novarum as “the living wage encyclical” and a new manifesto for Christian or democratic socialism.

Pope Pius XI posited “the Reign of Christ the King” to oppose the socialist “Kingdom of God on Earth.” He defined social justice as a particular virtue by means of which organized human persons restructure the institutions of the common good to conform to the demands of human dignity. He also stressed the importance of expanded capital ownership, but again in a way that allowed both capitalists and socialists to ignore it.

Neither Leo XIII nor Pius XI was aware that relying on cutting consumption to finance new capital creates an “economic dilemma.” If enough money is saved to finance new capital, there is insufficient demand to justify the capital financially. If there is demand for additional production, there is not enough saved to finance it.
In 1958 in The Capitalist Manifesto, Louis Kelso and Mortimer Adler resolved the problem by proposing to make everyone a capital owner by using “future savings,” i.e., capital that pays for itself out of its own earnings. Instead of cutting consumption in the past to generate investment funds, increase production in the future. The rich invented commercial and central banks to do this. Kelso and Adler proposed that this system be used to benefit everyone instead of just the rich (capitalism) or the State (socialism) — a just, third way of economic personalism to replace capitalism and socialism.

As refined by the interfaith Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ, www.cesj.org), what we call the Just Third Way of Economic Personalism is based on the three principles of economic justice derived from natural law:

Participative Justice, the input principle, “from each according to his productive contributions through his labor and capital,”
Distributive Justice, the out-take principle, “to each according to his labor and capital contributions,” and
Social Justice, the feedback and corrective principle that repairs the institutional environment whenever anyone is denied equal opportunity to contribute to production through his labor and/or capital, or from receiving his just due according to his contributions. The three principles of economic justice must be understood as integrated elements of a system if they are to be effective. Applying these principles gives the four policy pillars of a just market economy:
Widespread direct capital ownership, individually or in free association with others (the “fatal omission” from the major schools of economics today),
A limited economic role for the State, so that economic power resides in all the citizens and the State remains economically dependent on its citizens,
Free, open, and non-monopolistic markets, within a strong juridical order as the best means of determining just wages, just prices, and just profits, and
Restoration of the rights of private property, especially in corporate equity.
The four policy pillars provide the fundamental guidelines for establishing laws and practical measures to create a truly personalist economy. Guided by the natural law principles of Catholic social teaching, the Just Third Way has the potential to restructure the social order in a way that respects the dignity of every human person.

Ironically, the Second Vatican Council was called to continue the work of Vatican I and settle the problems caused by the new things. Evelyn Waugh believed that Cardinal Roncalli chose the name John XXIII to emphasize his opposition to the New Christianity.

Modernist attitudes (if not explicit modernism), however, permeated the Council deliberations. The language of the Council documents, while orthodox, could be — and was — given unorthodox interpretations. This opened the floodgates to abuses too numerous to list.

By identifying the real problem — bad ideas embodied in socialism and modernism — and recognizing the potential of the Just Third Way to restore respect for human dignity through individual empowerment, the way may be open to achieve the goal of Catholic social teaching: the just restructuring of the social order in a way that respects the dignity of the human person. Pope Francis might want to consider a new encyclical on economic personalism, and even convene another council to deal with the new things in a more effective way.

Never mind the economic and political systems already in place, many by the will of the people governed themselves, and in fact put in place with a departure from Catholic political influence and leadership specifically in mind. The papacies mission is and has always been to transform all back to and in accordance with her own designs. The French Revolution mentioned above was nothing less than the wholesale rejection of Roman Catholic leadership and economics which completely failed the citizens of France. Reducing the population to servile peasantry and beggary. The papacies concern for the poor and helpless is 100% authentic, she is completely dependent upon them for her own existence and exaltation. Her political and economic policies nurture and create widespread dependency upon her and the political and economic leaders she is constantly in bed with.

Can we not presently see the ever increasing levels of poverty and homelessness within our own nation as her political and economic effecting  social doctrines are increasingly accepted by leaders and put into place? Yes we can.  Are we not being told today by her Globalist, Communist, and Socialist political allies, that we will own nothing and be happy about it? Oh yes, happy to be completely dependent upon her, and her spiritually adulterous lovers.

The Protestant Reformation was also a rejection of abusive Roman Catholic leadership, lest we forget, by predominantly Catholic peoples, monks, priests, and clergy.  Many whose original intentions was not to leave the faith, but rather reform the abuses of it. They only became “Protestants” or those protesting such abuses, after they were excommunicated for daring to question their self imposed leaders. People were simply seeking freedom from tyrannical religion and government, which the papacy always compounds unto monstrous effect in the end. As history itself testifies.

The Capitalism and perhaps modernism mentioned above is no doubt in relation to these once United States of America, which also rejected Roman Catholic influence and or interference concerning its founding principles of government. To many of our forefathers having fled religious persecution and tyrannical government basically mothered by her own model. Which could not, and still does not separate the civil and spiritual realms unto freedom for either.

Humanities widespread rejection of her self proclaimed and enforced leadership almost lead to her complete end as a religio-political entity of this world. A French General and his soldiers broke through the Vatican’s doors, physically removed the acting Pope of the time, and placed him in exile where he died. Dissolving the Papal states, selling off the Vaticans properties, and rightly declaring the Popes temporal government at an end. Christ Jesus our Lord gave no commission for his own to seek and establish temporal power in and of this world, to lord over others.

This deadly wound to the head of the papal beast though, began to heal as rapidly as Babylon could facilitate such. As soon as possible, newly established popes began telling the world what to do and how to do it again. Seeking to bring everything back under her illegitimate authoritarian control. Several of these encyclicals are referred to in the above quoted article. Some of which we will examine in determining the papacies real intent toward this and every other nation which rejected her abusive authority. The papacy also regained her temporal status in this world in 1929 through her Fascist political ally Mussolini. She also enjoyed a special status with Hitler and the Nazi party of Germany for a while, being the first political entity to sign an accord with them. These are just two examples of the despicable political intrigues the papacy is and has always fostered unto empowerment.

The article quoted above is a fine example of the papacies delusions of grandeur.   Imposing herself and her own effect upon the economic and political developments which transpired while countless millions were actively rejecting her guidance and influence in the past. Nevertheless, she is relentless, and in her own mind the end justifies her means. No time in this little post to address her very successful campaigns to trash, rewrite, and reeducate the masses through public education, mainstream and social media, not to mention that other Babylon, Hollywood. Right here and now, we will just examine encyclicals referred to in the above article to reveal the papacies true long term goals in relation to healing the wound caused by humanities large scale rejection of her abusive authority.

We will begin this examination in the next post.

Continued from reply #304

The following excerpts are taken from the first papal social encyclical referred to in the article quoted in the previous post.  They reveal her new efforts to undo all that the masses effected in their wholesale rejection of her usurped authority just over three decades prior to its publication. Some of those she considers enemies of this desired purpose are identified in the encyclical as well. The link provided above the quoted excerpts, is where the encyclical may be viewed in its entirety. Quoted encyclical is in black, emphasis is mine. My comments will be in blue.

Mirari Vos

On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism

Pope Gregory XVI - 1832

ON LIBERALISM AND RELIGIOUS INDIFFERENTISM

To All Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops of the Catholic World.

Venerable Brothers, Greetings and Apostolic Benediction.

We think that you wonder why, from the time of Our assuming the pontificate, We have not yet sent a letter to you as is customary and as Our benevolence for you demanded. We wanted very much to address you by that voice by which We have been commanded, in the person of blessed Peter, to strengthen the brethren.[1] You know what storms of evil and toil, at the beginning of Our pontificate, drove Us suddenly into the depths of the sea. If the right hand of God had not given Us strength, We would have drowned as the result of the terrible conspiracy of impious men. The mind recoils from renewing this by enumerating so many dangers; instead We bless the Father of consolation Who, having overthrown all enemies, snatched Us from the present danger. When He had calmed this violent storm, He gave Us relief from fear. At once We decided to advise you on healing the wounds of Israel; but the mountain of concerns We needed to address in order to restore public order delayed Us…………………

Though we cannot determine what exact evils and problems are being referred to in the above opening comments, we may safely determine that they are a direct result of the French Revolution and or mass rejection of papal authoritarianism which preceded this encyclical by a few decades of the revolution, and some centuries of Protestant resistance. As is apparent, the papacy considers itself and those it lords over, to be Israel. The healing of its wounds would therefore represent a healing of its spiritual and temporal authority, as both are fundamental realities of its structure and existence. Prophetically speaking then of course, this would, has, and does represent the healing of the first beast of the book of Revelation chapter 13. Which received its deadly wound from the French Revolution in mass rejection of abusive papal spiritual and temporal authority.

4. We come to you grieving and sorrowful because We know that you are concerned for the faith in these difficult times. Now is truly the time in which the powers of darkness winnow the elect like wheat.[3] “The earth mourns and fades away….And the earth is infected by the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, they have changed the ordinances, they have broken the everlasting covenant.”[4]

Ah yes, those pesky infecting inhabitants of the earth who so recently rejected your abusive leadership and power. Never mind all of the very very good reasons they had to do so. No no. No confession or repentance on your own part for the evils you committed which lead to that rejection. Just condemnation for those who dared to do so, as though they had broken God’s law, changed His ordinances, and broken His everlasting covenant. As though the papacy itself and the pope were God.

2Th 2:1Now 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. We speak of the things which you see with your own eyes, which We both bemoan. Depravity exults; science is impudent; liberty, dissolute. The holiness of the sacred is despised; the majesty of divine worship is not only disapproved by evil men, but defiled and held up to ridicule. Hence sound doctrine is perverted and errors of all kinds spread boldly. The laws of the sacred, the rights, institutions, and discipline — none are safe from the audacity of those speaking evil. Our Roman See is harassed violently and the bonds of unity are daily loosened and severed. The divine authority of the Church is opposed and her rights shorn off. She is subjected to human reason and with the greatest injustice exposed to the hatred of the people and reduced to vile servitude. The obedience due bishops is denied and their rights are trampled underfoot. Furthermore, academies and schools resound with new, monstrous opinions, which openly attack the Catholic faith; this horrible and nefarious war is openly and even publicly waged. Thus, by institutions and by the example of teachers, the minds of the youth are corrupted and a tremendous blow is dealt to religion and the perversion of morals is spread. So the restraints of religion are thrown off, by which alone kingdoms stand. We see the destruction of public order, the fall of principalities, and the overturning of all legitimate power approaching. Indeed this great mass of calamities had its inception in the heretical societies and sects in which all that is sacrilegious, infamous, and blasphemous has gathered as bilge water in a ship’s hold, a congealed mass of all filth.

Never mind the constant abuses the people who rejected her usurped authority suffered at her hands, causing their rejection of her leadership. They are all damned because she is unquestionably divinely established authority. Her adulterous relations with the kings of the earth, with whom she walks upon the backs of the people, is divinely ordained. How dare they not be obedient to herself, her clergy, and her adulterous lovers. She must of course remedy such servile conditions, as those which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ endured for the sake of righteousness, and warned His followers they would also if they picked up their crosses and followed their Savior.

The papacy suffered such things because she would be no servant to mankind unless mankind bowed in obedience before her. To the contrary, she did, has, and does make life as difficult as possible for all who will not bow before her usurped authority. Regardless of how corrupt and abusive it became or becomes due to that same usurped power. She suffered the same fate as many other abusive forms of government of this world throughout history when their abused citizens rose up against them. This because she is herself a kingdom and government of this world, usurping the power and name of Christ to her own ends. Professing to serve Him who declared His kingdom was not of this world, while being constantly in bed with the kings and leaders of this world. The only power she considers legitimate, is her own, and that granted by her.

She also begins to identify her enemies which caused her downfall, and must be overcome in the above. It is the heretical societies and sects which have and do exist without her permission. This of course includes all Protestants, and the second rebellious child of the papacy as well, rationalism, secular humanism, and or atheism if one prefers. Children or daughters spawned by their rejection of her abusive and usurped authority. Many of whom already have and do continue to return to her. Ever increasing allies submitting to her completely compromising global vision as not only a friend of this world, but the ruler of all its inhabitants unto judgement and destruction. So be it, as God has determined.

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.


6. These and many other serious things, which at present would take too long to list, but which you know well, cause Our intense grief. It is not enough for Us to deplore these innumerable evils unless We strive to uproot them. We take refuge in your faith and call upon your concern for the salvation of the Catholic flock. Your singular prudence and diligent spirit give Us courage and console Us, afflicted as We are with so many trials. We must raise Our voice and attempt all things lest a wild boar from the woods should destroy the vineyard or wolves kill the flock. It is Our duty to lead the flock only to the food which is healthful. In these evil and dangerous times, the shepherds must never neglect their duty; they must never be so overcome by fear that they abandon the sheep. Let them never neglect the flock and become sluggish from idleness and apathy. Therefore, united in spirit, let us promote our common cause, or more truly the cause of God; let our vigilance be one and our effort united against the common enemies.

There you have it. Immediately upon being reestablished enough to write and disperse encyclicals, the papacy begins her call for open warfare against all who rejected her, as she believes, God given spiritual and temporal authority. No holds barred. All enemies, especially those viewed as wild boars by the papacy as Martin Luther was, must be dealt with in any way shape or form possible. Luther of course rejected papal authority completely after being excommunicated, and entered into the battle for liberty of conscience in a big way. The papacy certainly cannot tolerate such as that.

7. Indeed you will accomplish this perfectly if, as the duty of your office demands, you attend to yourselves and to doctrine and meditate on these words: “the universal Church is affected by any and every novelty”[5] and the admonition of Pope Agatho: “nothing of the things appointed ought to be diminished; nothing changed; nothing added; but they must be preserved both as regards expression and meaning.”[6] Therefore may the unity which is built upon the See of Peter as on a sure foundation stand firm. May it be for all a wall and a security, a safe port, and a treasury of countless blessings.[7] To check the audacity of those who attempt to infringe upon the rights of this Holy See or to sever the union of the churches with the See of Peter, instill in your people a zealous confidence in the papacy and sincere veneration for it. As St. Cyprian wrote: “He who abandons the See of Peter on which the Church was founded, falsely believes himself to be a part of the Church.”[8]…………………….

That would be the right to spiritually and temporally ruled the world of course.

9. Furthermore, the discipline sanctioned by the Church must never be rejected or be branded as contrary to certain principles of natural law. It must never be called crippled, or imperfect or subject to civil authority. In this discipline the administration of sacred rites, standards of morality, and the reckoning of the rights of the Church and her ministers are embraced…………

It is true that the authentic church of Christ should never be subject to civil authorities, though it should cooperate with them as far as possible save when their policies conflict with a thus saith the Lord. The papacy accepts this rule, as it favors her own authority in any contest. Yet she rejects another biblical rule which is just as important, in attributing to herself that which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ never taught or exemplified, but only discouraged. That is presuming civil or temporal power for herself in and of this world. Thereby making herself unquestionably a friend of this world. Unto the only possible end of apostasy and corruption.

Joh 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Jas 4:1  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

One cannot be on any more intimate terms with this world, than to be the one leading it.


13. Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that “there is one God, one faith, one baptism”[16] may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that “those who are not with Christ are against Him,”[17] and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore “without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.”[18] Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: “He who is for the See of Peter is for me.”[19] A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: “The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?”[20]

While the above condemnation embraces the false religions of this world, it also embraces all professing followers of Jesus Christ who are not of the Catholic faith. Echoing the infamous declaration of the papal bull Unam Sanctam,  - 

“Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”


14. This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. “But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error,” as Augustine was wont to say.[21] When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly “the bottomless pit”[22] is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws — in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.

Ta da! That’s right. As soon as the papacy was capable of doing so, she declared open warfare against these United States of America. She attacked one of our most important and basic Protestant principles, liberty of conscience. Supported in a big way by another founding principle of our nation built upon mature Protestant principles of government, separation of church and state. She has been at war with us and all others who support the same ever since. National lockdowns and mandates which she supports if not inspired, are just the most recent manifestations of her ever increasing successes. Her non stop mass migrations of her own adherents into our nation, presently and for many years now from our southern boarder, are ever increasing her ability to lord herself over us through a subjugated majority of them within. As we have already been witnessing for many decades now, for those who would care to admit of such, so few that there be. The following frank confession written many years ago in the Catholic publication Our Sunday Visitor , can be seen to have been coming to fruition for many years now.

Quote
’If Catholics ever attain, which they surely will, though at a distant day, the immense numerical majority in the United States, religious liberty, as at present understood, will be at an end. So say our enemies; so say we.’
(Our Sunday Visitor, pg. 3, Apr. 18, 1915)

15. Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again?

Ta da! Another direct attack upon another one of these United States foundational, basic, and fundamental principles. Freedom of speech and the press. Do we not see these freedoms being increasingly jeopardized and threatened the world over as the papacies power and influence increases? Yes we do. Did I not warn of these very things on these very boards years ago already concerning the internet and social media, while the papacy was meeting with, hopping in bed with, and instructing the leaders and owners of these conglomerates of communications the world over? Yes I did. All such is simply the continued war against freedom and liberty the papacy outlined in this encyclical of long ago. Which itself was and is nothing short of the resurrection if you will, of the exact abuses which caused this world to reject her usurped authority enmass and climactically in the French Revolution. Look at the French now, under the Roman Catholic globalist leadership of Macron.

Will the world at large accept this straight testimony about the recorded and published intentions of the papacy, and obvious successes of that intent right before our very eyes? No it will not, just as scripture has predicted. Go too. Turn your heads, close your eyes, stop your ears. Return to the couch and bow before your idiot box, or computer, or phone. Choose your side between the left, liberals, and Demlicans who major in misinformation and minor in misdirection, or the right, conservatives, Republicrats who major in misdirection and minor in misinformation. Never mind that man behind the curtain who manipulates both with his vast number of constituents and minions on either side if the isle.


16. The Church has always taken action to destroy the plague of bad books. This was true even in apostolic times for we read that the apostles themselves burned a large number of books.[23] It may be enough to consult the laws of the fifth Council of the Lateran on this matter and the Constitution which Leo X published afterwards lest “that which has been discovered advantageous for the increase of the faith and the spread of useful arts be converted to the contrary use and work harm for the salvation of the faithful.”[24] This also was of great concern to the fathers of Trent, who applied a remedy against this great evil by publishing that wholesome decree concerning the Index of books which contain false doctrine.[25] “We must fight valiantly,” Clement XIII says in an encyclical letter about the banning of bad books, “as much as the matter itself demands and must exterminate the deadly poison of so many books; for never will the material for error be withdrawn, unless the criminal sources of depravity perish in flames.”[26] Thus it is evident that this Holy See has always striven, throughout the ages, to condemn and to remove suspect and harmful books. The teaching of those who reject the censure of books as too heavy and onerous a burden causes immense harm to the Catholic people and to this See. They are even so depraved as to affirm that it is contrary to the principles of law, and they deny the Church the right to decree and to maintain it.

Does the above not speak loudly and clearly enough on its own? When she had the power to do so, the papacy burned the author of books she disapproved of, with their own books. This was not abuse of course, but rather God’s divine will, as the papacy has declared itself the visible representation of, in the place of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Lest we forget, God’s holy word was one of the books she outlawed in the vernacular, and burned regularly along with persons who dared to write and publish the same. Make no mistake about it, the present politically motivated trends of censorship are a direct result of her increasing power and influence upon the same. She wants her right to burn and or censor books back on the global scale.

The Apostles never commanded book burnings, or even requested such that we know from scripture. This is simply another papal lie to support their own usurped and abusive authority. The one incident recorded in the book of acts, was voluntary action taken on the part of those whose books they were, after their conversion.


17. We have learned that certain teachings are being spread among the common people in writings which attack the trust and submission due to princes; the torches of treason are being lit everywhere. Care must be taken lest the people, being deceived, are led away from the straight path. May all recall, according to the admonition of the apostle that “there is no authority except from God; what authority there is has been appointed by God. Therefore he who resists authority resists the ordinances of God; and those who resist bring on themselves condemnation.”[27] Therefore both divine and human laws cry out against those who strive by treason and sedition to drive the people from confidence in their princes and force them from their government…………

More phony baloney from the papacy, directly attacking yet another foundational principle of these United States of America. Representative government for the people, and by the people. She lies once again in basically stating that the abused must be obedient to their abusive leaders according to scripture. Again, make no mistake about it, the ever increasing gap between the political class and the rest of us, is a direct result of her increasing power and influence. She is a monarchial and elitist system, who has been, is, and will always continue to support huge authoritarian elitist government. As long as that government is in bed with, and being manipulated by her. Otherwise her entire purpose is subversion from within until the former may be accomplished. She is the destroyer of the freedoms and liberties of nations and peoples, and her global guidance will lead to global destruction by the judgments of God. 

On and on this document goes, telling all the people of the world that they must willingly bow before her and her adulterous political lovers as obedient little sheeple “Christians”. While she herself will bow before no one, but as is obvious from this encyclical itself, go to immediate literal war with any that would dare to demand such from her. Our Lord paved the way with personal example, and infinite sacrifice and humility. She will do no such thing. To the contrary -

Rev 18:1  And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

I have commented enough to certainly reveal the blatant animosity the papacy has, does, and will continue to have for this country, Protestants, and all who would dare to oppose her will. I will not address the remaining quotes from this encyclical, but allow them to speak for themselves regarding her hatred of this nation, Protestants, and whoever might get in her way. Things which the article presented in the previous post certainly did not address concerning its reference to this encyclical. Which it thought the present Pope should consider as he strives to place himself and his institution back upon the back of this worlds governments once again. These things have not been hidden, but rather published for all to see. The people of this world will get exactly what they deserve, in relation to their response to the same. So be it, according to God’s will.


19. These beautiful examples of the unchanging subjection to the princes necessarily proceeded from the most holy precepts of the Christian religion. They condemn the detestable insolence and improbity of those who, consumed with the unbridled lust for freedom, are entirely devoted to impairing and destroying all rights of dominion while bringing servitude to the people under the slogan of liberty. Here surely belong the infamous and wild plans of the Waldensians, the Beghards, the Wycliffites, and other such sons of Belial, who were the sores and disgrace of the human race; they often received a richly deserved anathema from the Holy See. For no other reason do experienced deceivers devote their efforts, except so that they, along with Luther, might joyfully deem themselves “free of all.” To attain this end more easily and quickly, they undertake with audacity any infamous plan whatever.

20. Nor can We predict happier times for religion and government from the plans of those who desire vehemently to separate the Church from the state, and to break the mutual concord between temporal authority and the priesthood. It is certain that that concord which always was favorable and beneficial for the sacred and the civil order is feared by the shameless lovers of liberty. ……………………………

23. May Our dear sons in Christ, the princes, support these Our desires for the welfare of Church and State with their resources and authority. May they understand that they received their authority not only for the government of the world, but especially for the defense of the Church. They should diligently consider that whatever work they do for the welfare of the Church accrues to their rule and peace. Indeed let them persuade themselves that they owe more to the cause of the faith than to their kingdom. Let them consider it something very great for themselves as We say with Pope St. Leo, “if in addition to their royal diadem the crown of faith may be added.” Placed as if they were parents and teachers of the people, they will bring them true peace and tranquility, if they take special care that religion and piety remain safe. God, after all, calls Himself “King of kings and Lord of lords.”

24. That all of this may come to pass prosperously and happily, let Us raise Our eyes and hands to the most holy Virgin Mary, who alone crushes all heresies, and is Our greatest reliance and the whole reason for Our hope.[33] May she implore by her patronage a successful outcome for Our plans and actions. Let Us humbly ask of the Prince of the Apostles, Peter and his co-apostle Paul that all of you may stand as a wall lest a foundation be laid other than that which has already been laid. Relying on this happy hope, We trust that the Author and Crown of Our faith Jesus Christ will console Us in all these Our tribulations. We lovingly impart the apostolic benediction to you, venerable brothers, and to the sheep committed to your care as a sign of heavenly aid.

Given in Rome at St. Mary Major, on August 15, the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin, in the year of Our Lord 1832, the second year of Our Pontificate.

Although this encyclical appears to contradict the course of later popes up to the present, concerning their allusions towards peace and unity, do not be fooled by the devices of the evil one’s institution. This has been a matter of necessity alone. Not receiving the response she desired by the powers that be of this world in reestablishing her authority and abuse, a different plan and course of action became necessary. As stated even in this encyclical under examination, any and all things must be attempted if necessary, to regain what she had lost. Her present pretended course of peace and unity, are simply veils to conceal her true purposes delineated in this most honest deliberation we have just examined. Which the scriptures themselves have predicted.

Dan 8:23  And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Through craft and deceit regarding false proclamations of peace, the Popes shall destroy many. AS they already have before.

1Th 5:1  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

We will examine the other encyclicals referred to in the article quoted in the previous post, in relation to the same, as time affords.

The following quoted encyclical may be viewed at the link provided above. Emphasis is mine, my comments afterward are in blue.


Singulari Nos

On the Errors of Lammenais

Pope Gregory XVI - 1834

ON THE ERRORS OF LAMMENAIS

To All the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops.

Venerable Brothers, Greetings and Apostolic Blessing.

The illustrious examples of faith, obedience, and devotion conveyed by the enthusiastic reception given everywhere to Our encyclical letter of August 15, 1832, gave Us great joy. We declared in it the only sound doctrine to be followed concerning the main points in the fulfillment of the duties of Our office for the whole Catholic flock. The statements made by many who had approved those counsels and opinions which so grieved Us have increased Our joy, for they have acted as prompt defenders and supporters of Our decrees. We recognized that that evil which is still inflamed against both sacred and civil matters is not yet removed. Widely disseminated but very shameless pamphlets and certain gloomy machinations openly denoted those things which We condemned in a letter sent to Our venerable brother, the bishop of Rennes, in the month of October. Moreover, his response to those things which cause Us so much concern and anxiety has been gratefully received. His statement sent to Us on December 11 of last year distinctly confirmed that he would follow solely and absolutely the teaching transmitted in Our encyclical letter and that he would not write or approve anything which differs from it. In that matter We opened Our heart in paternal love to the son who was moved by Our warnings. We should also have trusted that he would produce more brilliant writings in time to confirm his compliance in word and deed with Our decision.

2. It hardly seemed believable that he whom We welcomed with such good will and affection would so quickly forget Our kindness and desert Our resolution. We can hardly believe that the good hope which occupied Us with the fruit of Our teaching has died. However, We have learned of the pamphlet written in French under the title Paroles d’un croyant, for it has been printed by this man and disseminated everywhere. It was written under a pseudonym, but matters of public record make clear the author’s identity. Though small in size, it is enormous in wickedness.

3. We were very much amazed, venerable brothers, when at first We understood the blindness of this wretched author, for in him knowledge does not come from God, but from the elements of the world; this “knowledge” bursts forth. Against the oath solemnly given in his declaration, he cloaked Catholic teaching in enticing verbal artifice, in order ultimately to oppose it and overthrow it. We expressed this in Our letter mentioned above concerning both the dutiful submission toward authorities and the prevention of the fatal contamination of the people by indifferentism. It also concerned measures to use against the spreading license of ideas and speeches. Finally, it concerned that freedom of conscience which should be thoroughly condemned and the repulsive conspiracy of societies enkindling destruction of sacred and state affairs, even from the followers of false religions, as We have made clear by the authority handed down to Us.

4. The mind shrinks from reading through those things in which the author tries to break the bond of loyalty and submission toward leaders. Once the torch of treason is ignited everywhere, it ruins public order, fosters contempt of government, and stimulates lawlessness. It overthrows every element of sacred and civil power. From this, the writer transposes the power of princes, through a new and wicked idea, to the power of Satan and an omen of subterfuge, as if it were dangerous to divine law, even a work of sin. He brands the same marks of wickedness on the priests and rulers because of the conspiracy of crimes and labors in which he dreams they are joined against the rights of the people. Not content with such temerity, he thrusts forth every kind of opinion, speech, and freedom of conscience.
He prays that everything will be favorable and happy for the soldiers who will fight to free liberty from tyranny, and he encourages groups and associations in the furious combat which engulfs everything. He stands so firm in such heinous thoughts that We feel him trample right from the beginning Our advice and orders.

5. It is annoying to recount here everything which throws all human and divine affairs into confusion with the wicked fruit of impiety and daring. But these things especially arouse Our indignation and should clearly not be tolerated by religion. Especially dangerous is the fact that holy Scriptures that have been tainted with the errors of this author are disseminated to the unwary. Acting as if he were sent and inspired by God, he speaks in the name of the Trinity and then uses Scripture as a pretext for releasing the people from the law of obedience. He twists the words of holy Scripture in a bold and cunning manner in order to firmly establish his depraved ravings. He does this in order that, as St. Bernard used to say, “He might spread clouds for light or give poison for honey, or rather in the honey, creating a new Gospel for the people and laying a different foundation from the one which is already laid.”

6. He who placed Us as scouts in Israel for bids Us to hide in silence the great harm brought to sound doctrine. So We must warn about the error those whom Jesus, the author and perfector of the faith, entrusted to Our care. Therefore, We consulted many of Our venerable brothers, the cardinals of the Holy Roman Church. We have studied the book entitled Paroles d’un croyant. By Our apostolic power, We condemn the book: furthermore, We decree that it be perpetually condemned. It corrupts the people by a wicked abuse of the word of God, to dissolve the bonds of all public order and to weaken all authority. It arouses, fosters, and strengthens seditions, riots, and rebellions in the empires. We condemn the book because it contains false, calumnious, and rash propositions which lead to anarchy; which are contrary to the word of God; which are impious, scandalous, and erroneous; and which the Church already condemned, especially in regard to the Waldensians, Wycliffites, Hussites, and other heretics of this kind.

7. Venerable brothers, it will now be your duty to strongly support Our orders which We urgently demand as necessary for the safety and welfare of both sacred and civil affairs. Let us see that no writing of this kind comes out of hiding into the light, since it would be that much more harmful if it were to set sail through the passion of insane reform and creep far and wide like a crab among the people. It should be your duty to encourage sound doctrine through this whole affair and to make known the craftiness of the innovators. Watch more keenly over the care of the Christian flock, so that zeal for religion, piety of actions, and public peace might happily flourish and increase. We wait for this, trusting in your faith and commitment to the common good so that, with the help of God who is the Father of lights, We might give thanks (with St. Cyprian) that the error has been understood and weakened and then laid low, because it was recognized and discovered.

8. As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle. There you will find someone who is overconfident in seeking the truth outside the Catholic Church, in which it can be found without even a light tarnish of error. Therefore, the Church is called, and is indeed, a pillar and foundation of truth. You correctly understand, venerable brothers, that We speak here also of that erroneous philosophical system which was recently brought in and is clearly to be condemned. This system, which comes from the contemptible and unrestrained desire for innovation, does not seek truth where it stands in the received and holy apostolic inheritance. Rather, other empty doctrines, futile and uncertain doctrines not approved by the Church, are adopted. Only the most conceited men wrongly think that these teachings can sustain and support that truth.

9. While We write these things to understand and preserve the sound doctrine divinely delegated to Us, We sign over the harsh wound inflicted to Our heart by the error of Our son. In the great sadness We suffer, there is no hope of consolation, unless We can recall him to the way of righteousness. Therefore, at the same time, let Us raise Our eyes and hands to Him who is the leader of wisdom and the corrector of the wise. Let Us beseech Him with repeated prayer to give this man a docile heart and a great spirit to hear the voice of the most loving and most sorrowful Father. May he hasten the joy of the Church, the joy of your order, the joy of this Holy See, and the joy of Our unworthiness. Certainly We shall provide an auspicious and happy occasion to take hold of him and embrace him as a son returning to the bosom of his Father. We are and We shall be very optimistic from his example that others will come to their senses, others who might have been led into error by the same author. May there be an agreement of teaching, one course of thinking, one harmony of action and study, among all for the good of sacred and public matters. We need you and We expect you to beseech the Lord with Us in your pastoral concern for this great gift. We pray for divine assistance in this work and We lovingly impart Our apostolic blessing on you and on your flock as a sign of this.

Given in Rome, at St. Peter’s, on June 25, 1834, in the fourth year of Our pontificate.


The above encyclical which was also referenced in the article under question, seems to be more or less a response to a booklet published by a Catholic who would not agree or submit to the commands of the previous encyclical we just examined. Judging by the tone of the document, this individual should have considered himself lucky, that the papacy had lost its ability to procure civil penalties and or death for the disobedient.

True to her nature, she compounds church and state again in the above, declaring all who do not agree or submit to her sentiments enemies of sacred and civil affairs. How dare this individual have and exercise freedom of speech and liberty of conscience, to openly disagree with her teachings and use of civil power to enforce compliance with the same. All such is of course presented as a serious danger to herself and the princes and rulers she is always in bed with. She has warred against government by and for the people since her inception, and always will. Having to change her approach and strategies over time as her calls to reestablish the old order were so widely ignored.

We can see her age old desire to silence and censure all dissent in this document. Those who are paying attention also understand her heavy influence regarding the censorship we see today in the mainstream and social media arena’s. She has invested heavily in both, and already controls much of what the world will or will not hear and see. This trend will only continue to increase of course, if she can help it.

She again attacks certain groups from the past which she sets forth as examples of those she properly dealt with and put in their places. Others who dared in the past to exercise freedom of conscience and speech against her divine authority and will, as she sees it. The Waldensians, Wycliffites, Hussites, and other heretics. People, Christians, who dared to disagree with her teachings and self declared right to force the same upon all. These whom the papacy persecuted, cut off from societies, outlawed, hunted, imprisoned, tortured, murdered, burned at the stake, exterminated. All in the name of Jesus Christ, and still apparently proud of dong so when this encyclical was written.

No institution on earth more properly fits the description of the man of sin given by the apostle Paul, than the papacy and their pope. Who set themselves up as the temple of God, and placed their man of sin over it, as judge, jury, and executioner of all on this earth. Setting himself up in the temple of God, as though he were God. Blasphemy upon blasphemy. As she is now and intends to do once again through her non stop illicit relations with her elitist and power hungry lovers of this doomed world. Presenting herself and her illicit religious, political, and “scientific” lovers, as the saviors of this world for all who will submit to the same. In the place as it were, of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who alone has and will save anyone. 

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.

Short as the above quoted encyclical was, it revealed no changes from the previous one examined. Its message still being as hostile toward the founding principles of the United States, as the first one examined then. We will examine the third referenced encyclical for any change of heart when time affords.
