Benedict XVI does not practise what he preaches.

Benedict XVI does not practise what he preaches. He has no charity for Jesuit Jon Sobrino because he and the Opus Dei Bishop of El Salvador has silenced Sobrino and prohibited him from teaching and preaching in all Catholic universities and venues. The main reason: Sobrino's Jesus the Liberator could mislead the readers from the TRUE Christ of Ratzinger God's Rottweiler...who said that "Outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation". So in true Opus Dei fashion, Benedict XVI make the Jesuits fight each other in the most subtle way like snakes, the Escriva-python way. Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei are totalitarians and dictators at the Vatican who will silence any critics they have and it is a matter of time that they infiltrate Googles and delete all blogs like ours who expose the TRUTH about Benedict XVI and the hypocrisy of the Opus Dei.

This article is Fr. Fessio kissing the holy-butts of Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei ghost writers. It is a pity that the smart Jesuits are tied-up to act like elephant circus to the barkings of Ratzinger God's Rottweiler.

Father Fessio: A New Framework for Social Justice, Pope Places Charity and Truth at Heart of Debate
By Father Joseph Fessio, SJ
NAPLES, Florida, JULY 7, 2009 ( Benedict XVI has something for everyone in "Caritas in Veritate" -- from praising profit (21) to defending the environment (48). But in these cases, as in all the others, he calls for a discernment and a purification by faith and reason (56) that should temper immoderate and one-sided enthusiasms.
Once again, Pope Benedict shows himself to be a theologian of synthesis and fundamental principles. In the titles of his three encyclicals he has used only five nouns: God, Love, Hope, Salvation, and Truth -- the most fundamental of realities. And in the opening greeting of this encyclical he succinctly describes the contents: "on integral human development in charity and truth."
Note that from this very greeting Pope Benedict has changed the whole framework of the debate on "the social question." This was expected to be -- and is -- his encyclical on "social justice." And indeed "justice" and "rights" find their proper place in a larger synthesis. But the priority is established from the outset, the foundation is laid, with "charity" and "truth." "Charity is at the heart of the Church's social doctrine" (2). "Without truth, without trust and love for what is true, there is no social conscience and responsibility, and social action ends up serving private interests and the logic of power" (5).
Another fundamental principle, and a central theme of this pontificate, is the continuity of the Church and her teaching. Surprisingly, the central ecclesiastical text from the past is Pope Paul VI's "Populorum Progressio," and Pope Benedict makes it clear that we do not have "two typologies of social doctrine, one pre-conciliar and one post-conciliar, differing from one another: On the contrary, there is a single teaching, consistent and at the same time ever new" (12). This principle of continuity was expressed centrally in Benedict's first address as Pope on April 20, 2005, and again to the Roman curial cardinals on Dec. 22 of that year.
Within this fundamental material context of charity and truth, and the fundamental formal context of the continuity of the Church's teaching, Pope Benedict situates the centerpiece of the Church's social teaching: "integral human development." And by "integral" he means "it has to promote the good of every man and of the whole man" (18, quoting Paul VI). Among the important dimensions of this wholeness, he notes that integral human development must be open to the transcendent (11: "authentic human development concerns the whole of the person in every single dimension. Without the perspective of eternal life, human progress in this world is denied breathing-space.") and it must be open to life (28: "Openness to life is at the center of true development").
The inclusiveness of this integration is emphatically and perhaps surprisingly exemplified in paragraph 39. There, the Pope states that the "logic of the market and the logic of the state," i.e., free economic exchange with political oversight and restraint, are not enough to secure human flourishing. There must also be "solidarity in relations between citizens, participation and adherence, actions of gratuitousness" or, as he says in summary, "increasing openness, in a world context, to forms of economic activity marked by quotas of gratuitousness and communion." Pope Benedict insists on a "third economic factor" in addition to the market and the state: gratuitousness.
Here is a radiant example of the fundamental, synthetic, and discerning character of Pope Benedict's formulation of the Church's social teaching, one which for me is worth the whole encyclical for its clarity, depth, and common sense: "If there is lack of respect for the right to life and a natural death, if human conception, gestation and birth are made artificial, if human embryos are sacrificed to research, the conscience of society ends up losing the concept of human ecology and, along with it, that of environmental ecology. It is contradictory to insist that future generations respect the natural environment when our educational system and laws do not help them to respect themselves" (51).
There are times when one is especially proud of the blessing of the Catholic faith. This is one of them.

Abuse report no surprise to Pope Benedict XVI

Abuse report no surprise to Pope

Monday June 08 2009

I read with interest the timely report and analysis from John Cooney on last week's Vatican meeting between Cardinal Brady, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin and the Holy Father (Irish Independent, June 6).

"Abuse report rocks the Vatican," it read. Come now folks. It's hardly a shock to them at this point. They are well informed about it and have been for some time.

Dr Martin himself was aware of abuse during his schooldays in Dublin some 50 years ago, according to statements he made recently.

Perhaps the shock for the inscrutable members of the Roman Curia is the dawning reality that the Irish people, taken for granted for so long by the Church, are finally stirring from their slumber of clerical deference and financial gullibility.

On this point, it might also be appropriate to ask that the Irish Independent report in less deferential language on these matters.

Terms such as "exceptional access" to papal discussions on a matter of this magnitude are surely overblown. It is the Pope's business to deal directly with such an abominable issue as institutional child abuse, starvation and torture by religious congregations.

So Pope Benedict has now relayed his determination via Giuseppi Leandra of his intention to "rid the Catholic Church of paedophile priests".

It's a bit late in the day for relaying second-hand comment, Holiness.

This message he should have addressed to the Irish people personally. It is still widely anticipated, and obviously necessary.

Monsignor Lombardi's initial comments on the report beggar belief. All bishops report directly to the Holy Father.

If he had instructed them clearly in 2002 (when he was the senior cardinal in the Curia) or in 2006, the reform would now be in operation here, as it is in England and Wales and the US.

In Ireland, of course, our deferential Government has betrayed our children once again rather than discommode the Irish Catholic episcopate.

I would like to reiterate my previous request to this newspaper to give us a series of articles outlining the corporate, administrative and financial structure of this foreign-based Church which even yet maintains such an inordinate degree of control of the taxpayer-financed education, social welfare and medical services in this country. It would lend informative context to these reports.

Benedict XVI ignores women abused by clergy in church

Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei are too busy figuring out what Latin words to say during their daily eucharistic black magic and what to wear at their photo-ops with dignitaries at the Vatican that they continue to suppress the Jesuits and women in the Catholic church. Opus Dei have silenced many Jesuits especially the Jesuit Jon Sobrino in El Salvador and the Jesuit astronomers at the Vatican Observatory see the John Paul II Millstone for details Opus Dei treat women as inferiors and so direct the papacy to suppress women's voice in the Catholic Chruch.


WHEREAS, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has fought hard to shatter societal silence regarding all forms of sexual violence; and

WHEREAS, public misunderstanding and lack of knowledge regarding adult victims of sexual exploitation by clergy have contributed to silencing the voices of these victims; and

WHEREAS, the overwhelming majority of victims of sexual exploitation by clergy are adults, predominately female congregants victimized by male clergy; and

WHEREAS, adult victims of clergy sexual exploitation are routinely blamed for this abuse and revictimized by the public, severely ostracized by their own congregations, and disbelieved by religious authority figures from whom they seek solace and protection, resulting in devastating social isolation and confusion; and

WHEREAS, in addition to coping with the physical and emotional impacts of sexual violation, victims of sexual exploitation by clergy often also suffer loss of faith, loss of religious tradition, loss of spouse, loss of employment within religious organizations or with faith-affiliated educational institutions, self-blame by the victim, and loss of support from family, congregation, and community;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that NOW chapters be encouraged to participate in educational and advocacy campaigns to increase public awareness that the majority of victims of clergy sexual exploitation are adult women and that sexual violation by a spiritual leader has profound life-altering impacts; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that NOW entities be encouraged to support state legislative campaigns for statutory reform, in particular to add clergy to the enumerated categories of professionals covered in fiduciary-duty laws in states having such laws, and for criminalization of sexual relations between similarly enumerated categories of professionals in states not having fiduciary-duty laws; and

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that NOW disseminate information on the extent and impacts of clergy sexual exploitation of adult women, including legal avenues of redress and model legislation, on the NOW website and via other media outlets that NOW regularly utilizes for its advocacy campaigns.

Benedict XVI's diocese loses insurance coverage for hiding crimes

For hiding crimes, Catholic diocese loses insurance; SNAP responds

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell)
This judge has found what victims and Catholics have known for years: Catholic officials knowingly, repeatedly concealed clergy child sex crimes. These weren't 'accidents' or 'mistakes' or 'misjudgments.' Top church staffers deliberately hid felonies and endangered kids. Why should insurance companies financially reward such inexcusable criminal conduct?

Let's hope this ruling prompts others who saw, suspected or suffered crimes by clerics to come forward, call police, protect others and start healing.

Diocese loses insurance coverage

The Catholic Diocese of Green Bay has lost its insurance coverage in a civil suit alleging fraud related to sexual assaults by a priest.

Troy and Todd Merryfield sued the Catholic Diocese for fraud, alleging fraud and fraudulent non-disclosure regarding sexual misconduct by Fr. Patrick Feeney.
Feeney, since defrocked, was convicted in 2004 of assaulting the brothers in 1978. He is serving a 15-year prison sentence.

After the suit was filed, the Diocese's insurance company, Indiana Insurance, asked to be dismissed from the case, claiming since the Diocese's actions were intentional, the policy didn't cover the case.

In a ruling signed Wednesday, Outagamie County Judge Nancy Krueger agreed and dismissed the insurance company.

"The Plantiffs allege the Diocese acted with an intent to keep knowledge of Father Feeney's past actions from the parishes to which it sent him and by extension from the Plantiffs. As the policy specifically excludes coverage for intentional acts, Indiana has no obligation under this policy to defend and indemnify the Diocese in this matter," Krueger wrote.

Jeff Anderson, who represents the Merryfields, said he is not concerned with the lack of insurance coverage for the Diocese, saying it has adequate resources to pay whatever damages award a jury makes.

"We want the children to be protected and we want those who have been wounded to be compensated," Anderson said. "And it's the Diocese of Green Bay's corporate officers that need to he held, ultimately, to account for the misdeeds of the past so it doesn't get repeated in the future."

The Diocese issued the following the statement:
"The Diocese of Green Bay is disappointed with the courts’ ruling that Indiana Insurance Company does not have to provide insurance coverage for two civil lawsuits filed against the Diocese – one in Outagamie County and one in Clark County, Nevada. The Diocese of Green Bay is adamant that it did not willfully commit fraud in the assignment of former priest, John Feeney. Because these matters are still in litigation, the Diocese will have no further comment at this time."

The Diocese's statement also made reference to its website's section on abuse issues.

Pope gives first Sunday sermon since wrist mishap

1 hour, 25 minutes ago

ROMANO CANAVESE, Italy (AFP) - Pope Benedict XVI urged the unemployed not to lose hope in the midst of the global economic downturn, in his first Sunday sermon since breaking a wrist.

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church smiled and looked at ease as he acknowledged worshippers near his holiday home in the north of Italy with raised arms, then blessed them with his cast-enclosed right hand.

"I know that here, too, in the Ivera region, many families are facing economic hard times due to a lack of work," he said, alluding to the now-defunct Olivetti typewriter manufacturer that was founded in the area.

"Dear friend, do not be discouraged," he added.

"Providence always helps those who do the right thing and seek justice; it also helps those who think not only of themselves, but also think of those in worse situations than their own."

The German-born pope had two metal pins inserted into his broken wrist in what doctors called a "routine" operation under local anaesthetic in hospital on Friday, after he slipped and fell in his bedroom during the night.
One of his close aides, Federico Lombardi, told AFP on Saturday that, due to the cast, the pontiff is bemoaning the inability to write and to clasp his hands in prayer.

Benedict XVI the Pope of INJUSTICE

Benedict XVI as Cardinal Ratzinger together with the Opus Dei covered-up the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army for more than 26 years and they silenced the Jesuit Jon Sobrino for crticizing the hypocritical and theatrical papacy of John Paul II see details in and the John Paul II Millstone

To see the Opus Dei brillant cover-up of the John Paul II Pedophile Priest Army read the book Justice Denied, What America Must Do to Protect its Children, by Marci Hamilton. (Cambridge University Press, April 2008) ISBN: 052188621X. Recent events such as the clergy abuse scandal in the Catholic Church have brought the once-taboo subject of childhood sexual abuse to the forefront. But despite increasing awareness of the problem, the United States has not succeeded in establishing effective means of deterring and preventing it, leaving the children of today and tomorrow vulnerable.

Hamilton proposes a comprehensive yet simple solution: eliminate the arbitrary statutes of limitation for childhood sexual abuse so that survivors past and present can get into court. Removing this merely procedural barrier permits thousands of survivors to make public the identities of their perpetrators and to receive justice and much-deserved compensation.

Standing in the way, however, are formidable opponents such as the insurance industry and the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church.

In Justice Denied, Hamilton predicts a coming civil rights movement for children and explains why it is in the interest of all Americans to allow victims of childhood sexual abuse this chance to seek justice when they are ready.

Benedict XVI and Harry Potter are both wizards

With the Eucharist as the strongest black magic on the Planet Earth -- Catholic priests commanding Christ's flesh to come down into the wafer host and his Blood into man-made wine -- Benedict XVI and the Vatican has joined the Harry Potter wizardry. If you can't beat them, join them.

Benedict XVI wants to join-in the millions of Harry Potter fan so Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei have lost their Christian integrity and joined into the secular wizardry of the world.

Those Opus Dei eunuchs are so dumb they cannot be astronomers and so they shut down the Jesuit’s Vatican Observatory. They’d rather be practising Eucharistic-wizardry with Harry Potter than allowing the good Jesuits their scientific job.

The Opus Dei live only in millionaires’ row and so they silenced the Jesuit Jon Sobrino from speaking up for the poor. Benedict XVI said “Outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation. Jon Sobrino says: Outside the poor there is no salvation.

Jon Sobrino tickles the consciences of filthy-rich Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei and so they silenced him, see the John Paul II Millstone also for details


VATICAN CITY — The Vatican lauded the latest Harry Potter film on Monday, saying "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" made the age-old debate over good vs. evil crystal clear.

The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano even gave two thumbs up to the film's treatment of adolescent love, saying it achieved the "correct balance" and made the stars more credible to the general audience.

The newspaper said the film, which opens Wednesday, was the best adaptation yet of the J.K. Rowling series about the adventures of the bespectacled child wizard Harry Potter and his Hogwarts chums as they battle Harry's nemesis, the evil sorcerer Voldemort.

While criticizing Rowling for omitting any explicit "reference to the transcendent" in her books, L'Osservatore said the latest installment nevertheless makes clear that good should overcome evil "and that sometimes this requires costs and sacrifice."

"In addition, the spastic search for immortality epitomized by Voldemort is stigmatized," the review said.

The Vatican's praise follows the sharp criticism of the Harry Potter series by a conservative Austrian priest at the center of a church crisis earlier this year.

The Rev. Gerhard Maria Wagner had characterized Harry Potter novels as Satanism, while also suggesting Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans and surrounding areas, was provoked by sin.

Pope Benedict XVI promoted Wager to the post of auxiliary bishop in Linz, Austria's third largest city, in January. But amid an outcry among Austrian Catholics over his comments, Wagner eventually gave up the promotion.

Benedict and the G8 leaders in italy‏

Benedict XVI is so busy figuring out what outfit to wear for his photo-op with world leaders at the G-8 in Italy that he does not give a care to the thousands of victims of the John Paul II pedophile Priests Army he covered-up as Cardinal Ratzinger.

With his effeminate gay-voice to his mystical wife and private secretary Bishop Georg, all he is obsessed about is his looks and clothes and what kind of things to give and to say to the royalties that come to his palace daily.

In this photo, Benedict XVI and Georg Gaenswein look very much like a clone of MR. John Paul II's Mystical Marriage to MRS. Josemaria de Opus Dei. ...

As we have said repeatedly, the Opus Dei controls, own and run the Vatican want SNAP and victims of the JPIIPPA to be nothing but “Dust in the Wind” exactly as the lyrics of the song itself sings so see

The Pope and the Opus Dei are busy playing with words and directing ghost writers to write their strategies to paint Benedict XVI as the fourth Christ such as the title “Conscience of our age” see

To the Opus Dei their St. Josemaria Escriva is the first Christ, the second is John Paul II and the third is their alive Opus Dei Bishop of Rome and the fourth is the live pope Benedict XVI.

Opus Dei has many lawyers and politicians members in the parliaments in Europe and the USA Supreme Court. Opus Dei owns major news media outlets and their many Opus Dei writers paint a rosy picture for the Pope.

So Opus Dei and Benedict XVI’s morality are full of doctrine-shit because they are evil and corrupt because they show no remorse for the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army that they covered-up for over a quarter of a century!

Benedict XVI’s morality is full of fallibility, foibles and fallacies as this article dissects his most recent speech in Rome. Those Opus Dei ghost writers are so stupid none of them are qualified to be astronomers and so they got Benedict XVI to shut down the Jesuit-run Vatican Observatory. The Opus Dei is the most evil Catholic organization in existence and their obsession is to annihilate the Jesuits and bury live the victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priesta Army as “Dust in the Wind”


Benedict’s Moral Equivalence

June 8, 2009 | From

Pope Benedict slams America’s means of ending World War II.

Ron Fraser

In his most glaring instance of moral equivalence yet, Pope Benedict xvi has described the means that America used to finally end World War ii in terms that should be music to the ears of every one of America’s enemies. During a mass in the Vatican Basilica on Sunday of last week, the pope exclaimed, “The tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki remain as a perennial admonition where atomic energy, used for bellicose ends, ended up causing death on an unprecedented scale.”

This pope is, as British historian Paul Johnson has pointed out, a pope whose “thinking is elaborate, refined, confident and energetic.” Johnson described what is perhaps Benedict’s most famous speech, delivered at his old university in Regensburg, Bavaria, in September 2006, as a “brilliant lecture” and “a cool, calm, well-documented and penetrating presentation” (Spectator, April 11, 2007).

Much of the mass media commentary on that particular speech was critical of how Pope Benedict appeared to denigrate the Muslim religion. Those who are aware of the pope’s specific universal agenda were aware that the whole message was carefully crafted to make a powerful point to the Muslim community. The speech got the reaction that Benedict fully expected it would. There was a huge outcry from Muslim religious leaders, who then came flocking to Rome to sit at the pope’s feet. Benedict had made his point.

Vatican watchers who have followed the course of this pope realize that, notwithstanding the often negatively critical views of the babbling press to the contrary, every public statement Benedict makes is a deliberate proclamation of his personal moral platform and of the specific direction in which he is channeling the vision of his papacy.

Clearly, in the context of Benedict’s public statements during his May 31 mass, the pope’s referring to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings as having been “used for bellicose ends” should end any doubt as to where America and its traditional allies stand in his eyes, and the place they hold in that papal vision.

True Context

Let’s place the pope’s statement, referring to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as being “atomic energy, used for bellicose ends … causing death on an unprecedented scale,” in its true context.

Horrific though the loss of life caused by the first two atom bombs used in warfare was, the death toll in Hiroshima and Nagasaki—estimated to be 200,000 souls—hardly warrants comparison with the sheer vastness of the numbers of innocents sacrificed to the god of the Nazi regime in which this pope served as a committed member of the Hitler Youth.

Thirty times that number, 6 million lives, were deliberately eliminated by the Nazis in a dedicated effort to expunge the very existence of world Jewry from the planet. The total number of deaths resulting from the war started by Nazi Germany, supported by fascist Italy, then joined later in axis with Imperial Japan, is estimated to have exceeded 56 million!

Where, pray tell, is Pope Benedict’s sense of reality, let alone his sense of proportion, in viewing America’s final desperate act to put an end to the continuing aggression of Imperial Japan, an enemy of peace, as having been instigated for “bellicose ends” when compared with the results of Axis aggression?

Where is this pope’s sense of context in seeking to describe the less than a quarter million dead as a result of an act seeking to bring an end to the war instigated by Hitler that was still being continued by the last remaining Axis power, Imperial Japan, as an act “used for bellicose ends … causing death on an unprecedented scale”? That statement appears to be a deliberate skewing of the truth. The reality is that the death toll from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was vastly exceeded by “death on an unprecedented scale” enacted by more traditionally “bellicose” means in the gas chambers of the Hitler regime.

But the worst aspect of Pope Benedict’s latest, hardly subtle, verbal attack on the Anglo-Saxons, is the warped sense of history it conveys as to the reasons for the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The bombing of Nagasaki, far from being an action designed to achieve “bellicose ends” by America, was the result of an extremely agonizing decision taken by a U.S. president faced with the prospect of further loss of Allied lives in a continuing campaign of belligerence by an Imperial Japan committed to fight to the bitter end.

“Japanese resolve stayed strong and the idea of a bloody ‘house to house’ invasion of the Japanese mainland would produce thousands more American and Allied casualties. The Allies in late July 1945 declared at Potsdam that the Japanese must unconditionally surrender. After Japanese leaders flatly rejected the Potsdam Declaration, President Truman authorized use of the atomic bomb …” (Harry S. Truman Library and Museum).

That was a final desperate act to bring peace to a world that had suffered the multiple agonies instigated by the overtly “bellicose” actions of the crazed leader of the Hitler Youth of Benedict’s earlier days!

It boggles the mind to think that one who leads the greatest religious institution in the world, who styles himself as the “vicar of Christ,” would deign to accuse the Anglo-Americans, whose entire war effort was in defense of the cause of freedom and world peace, of using the specific act designed to end a horrific war as an act motivated out of a desire to achieve “bellicose ends.”

Surely any sound-minded individual, having a balanced perspective of the specifics of the history of 1914-18 and 1939-45, could differentiate between the “bellicose ends” sought by the actions of Hitler, Mussolini and Togo, and the peacemaking motivation of those who sought to quell the final militaristic frenzy of Imperial Japan. The history is clear in its rendering that suicidal Nipponese fanaticism promised to only prolong the agony of war in 1945 and add to its terrible toll. It took two atomic explosions to finally humble Japan’s imperial leaders into capitulation, finally putting an end to the greatest war in humankind’s history.

“Used for bellicose ends”—this was not a slip of the tongue by the most intellectual and highly articulate pope to grace the papal throne in centuries. This was a very carefully chosen phrase, used with precision to affect the moral mindset of the masses by warping the true history of that Teutonic tendency for repetitively seeking to take advantage of other nations by actions used for bellicose ends under dictatorial leadership. It was a statement geared to spreading a plain deceit that is increasingly resulting in the masses viewing Germany and Japan as the victims of Anglo-American “hegemony” in the wake of the two world wars.

Pious Silence

But this is not the first time Pope Benedict has shown his tendency for moral equivalence. There is at least one other glaring instance.

During his visit in 2006 to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, Benedict asked the question, “Why, Lord, did you remain silent?” That question was presumably addressed by Pope Benedict to the same Lord whom the wartime pope, Pius xii, served in the same stated capacity as Benedict claims to hold, that of vicar of Christ, during the whole period that Nazi atrocities were being committed at Auschwitz and many other Nazi death camps in Europe. Perhaps this pope should really have asked that question of the very pope whom he is determined to beatify as a saint! Why was Pope Pius xii SILENT during the whole satanic genocidal slaughter of 6 million Jews under the Hitler regime, let alone the instigation and perpetuation of the worst war in humankind’s history?

Rather than ask that question of the silence of Pius xii on the horrors of the Holocaust, Vatican sources are intent on a cover-up of the true nature of the papacy of Pius xii by refusing outright to open archives on his pontificate. Notwithstanding this, authors John Cornwell and David Kertzer have produced well-researched works providing ample evidence to support, as Cornwell writes in the preface to his book, Pius being guilty of combining “a fatal combination of high spiritual aspirations in conflict with soaring ambition for power and control. The consequences were collusion with tyranny and, ultimately, violence” (Hitler’s Pope).

In his excellent coverage of Cardinal Joseph Hurley’s diplomatic links between the Vatican and the U.S. presidency during World War ii, Jesuit Charles Gallagher has strengthened the position of those who would condemn Pius xii for his silence in the face of glaring proof of the Holocaust. Gallagher demonstrates that Joseph Hurley had, by 1940, seemed “to have dismissed Pius xii as a moral force on the world scene,” indicating that the pope had “ushered in a new policy of speaking in generalities and sugar-coating tough discussion” (Vatican Secret Diplomacy).

Notwithstanding the gravest of doubts about the moral worth of Pope Pius xii in relation to his compromising conduct during World War ii—a matter of clearly documented history in the face of a vigorous Vatican campaign of disinformation to the contrary—Pope Benedict has made it clear that he is intent on pursuing the beatification of “Hitler’s pope.”

The danger of this pope’s orientation is that while his actions in respect of Pius xii imply endorsement of that pope’s failure to take an overtly moral stand against the Holocaust—let alone the whole period of death-dealing Nazi violence—his most recent implied condemnation of the act which finally stopped the greatest war in humankind’s history reveals, at its heart, a mind clear, and quite chilling, in its condemnation of the efforts of the greatest of the Anglo-Saxon democracies to ultimately save the world from tyranny.

It is not the purpose of this column to argue the morality of the use of the atomic bomb to put an end to World War ii. Its purpose is to highlight the dangerous and duplicitous moral equivalency of a religious leader who holds sway, to one degree or another, over the minds of 1 billion adherents to his religion, and to whom many world leaders look for moral guidance.

But there is a deeper concern.

EU Looks to Rome

The founding fathers of the greatest trading entity in the world, the European Union, were right-wing committed Catholics. Today, most of the senior bureaucrats who pull the strings that operate this Brussels-based behemoth, established by the 1957 Treaty of Rome, are right-wing committed Roman Catholics. Symbolically, the treaty that gave the imprimatur to the EU pursuing its own constitution was signed by the heads of state of all EU member nations in Rome in 2004. It is to Rome that the most influential movers and shakers who have sought to resurrect the grand Germano-Roman universal vision of the Holy Roman Empire, under its EU cloak, look for spiritual guidance. They are on course to triumph over the secularists and install the religion of Rome as the official state religion of the European Union.

Between June 4 and 7, the EU electorate voted to seat their representatives in the European Parliament for the next five years. Early indications are of gains by center-right, far-right and extremist fringe parties in this election. The far right gained ascendancy in the Netherlands, Austria and Hungary, with Germany, France, Italy and Spain all showing a pronounced swing to the right. The left, the socialists, were the big loser in this election. The question now is, how far further right will Germany swing in the next three months as recession bites deep into its electorate in advance of that nation’s own federal election in September?

While Germany may well be in the box seat to reap the benefit of any future demand for its exports in the event of recovery from the current recession, the nation’s reactions in the short term remain the real concern.

Rising unemployment, falling income, rising debt, falls in gross domestic product, street rallies by the masses, continuing threats by Russia to cut energy supplies—all this combines with a dramatic rise over the past year in membership of extreme right-wing political movements within the EU and an escalation in attacks on European Jews to present a worrisome picture of the current mood in Europe.

We have for decades encouraged our readers to watch Europe, and to especially watch for conditions of crisis that would produce a climate ripe for the rise of spiritual and political demagoguery within the EU. Those very conditions that will trigger such events are ripening right now on the European continent!

Watch Europe for the outcome to this crucial parliamentary election. More importantly, watch the reaction of the EU’s leading nation, Germany, to the outcome of this election. It may well set the mood for a surprising result in the forthcoming federal elections in Germany this September.

As our editor in chief, Gerald Flurry, has maintained, “We need to watch the European Union for a man stepping in and seizing control of that entity through flatteries. He is going to hijack the EU. … Politics in Europe are going to shift dramatically to the right.

“I truly believe the Vatican will help bring that [prophesied] political leader on the scene, and that’s when we will really see the fireworks. We know from these prophecies [of Daniel and Revelation] that the Vatican will become very powerful and instigate some radical changes” (Daniel Unlocks Revelation).

To judge by Pope Benedict’s words on Sunday of last week, those radical changes have already begun.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Music superstar Michael Jackson was a "pervert" and "a child molester" and the media has disgraced itself with the day-in, day-out coverage of his death, a US lawmaker has charged.

In a two-minute video posted on the YouTube Internet site, Republican Representative Peter King fumed that tributes to the late "King of Pop" honor a "low-life" while people like US troops fighting overseas are ignored.

"Let's knock out the psychobabble. This guy was a pervert, he was a child molester, he was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?" King said.

Jackson was acquitted in 2005 of child molestation charges.

"I really think the media has disgraced itself, I think that too many people in public life have made fools of themselves by talking about Michael Jackson as it he was some kind of hero," said King.

"There's nothing good about this guy," the lawmaker, whose home state is New York, said in a video message recorded in front of a local chapter of the American Legion veterans' group.

"He died, he had some talent, fine. There are people dying every day -- there's men and women dying today in Afghanistan, let's give them the credit they deserve," he said.

"He may have been a good singer, he did some dancing. But bottom line is, would you let your child or grandchild be in the same room with Michael Jackson? What are we glorifying him for?"

In the video, King said he wished the media would honor people like teachers in rough neighborhoods, AIDS clinics volunteers, police and firefighters, and US troops serving overseas.
