Bernie and Francis


No surprise here. Avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, who spent his honeymoon in the then Soviet Union, has been invited to the pope’s conference: “The Vatican conference on April 15 will address social, economic and environmental issues.” But wait--Sanders is a hard-core pro-abort politician. No matter. Popery is pragmatic, not pro-life. “Pro-life” works for popery at the present time. But even so, Rome has made it clear that the murder of the unborn is not all that important to the big picture. What really matters to Rome is power; and this popery pursues by enslaving people through priestcraft while at the same time endearing itself to multitudes as a champion of the poor, including through a political lobbying apparatus in civil power centers around the world--including our federal and state capitols--which is second to none in funding and influence.


Further, socialism works for Rome in that socialism is all about power being concentrated in a few central governments which in turn can be the better influenced and, as is hoped by the papal power, controlled more and more by Rome. This is the same reason the Vatican is so very deeply concerned about “environmental issues” led by “global warming.” Is Pope Francis a socialist? He is only being true to the economic teachings/political polity of Rome dating all the way back to that revered doctor of the church, “St.” Thomas Aquinas, the godfather of liberation theology. This aspect of popery is documented, for instance, in the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church. (See http://www.pccmonroe.org/Ecumenism/2009.01.08.htm.) All of the popes have been socialists.


By the way, the Roman Catholic Church organization Catholic Charities USA receives more tax dollars than any other charitable organization in our nation! A panoply of smaller Catholic charities also receives a huge amount of government largesse. All told, we are talking about billions in tax dollars yearly--not even millions, but billions! Your tax dollars at work, spreading Romish blasphemy, even while winning influence and proselytes to Rome. Talk about a true constitutional violation of church and state!

Vatican Invites Sanders to a Conference to Discuss a 'Moral' Economy

By Susan Jones | April 8, 2016 | 8:22 AM EDT
(CNSNews.com) - Bernie Sanders says he's a "big, big fan" of Pope Francis, who has invited him to speak at a Vatican conference on April 15.

"I was very moved by the invitation, which just was made public today," the senator told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday.

"Obviously there are areas where we disagree on," Sanders said, pointing to "women's rights" and "gay rights."

"But he has played an unbelievable role -- an unbelievable role -- of injecting the moral consequence into the economy.

"You know, people think Bernie Sanders is radical? Uh-unh. Read what the pope is writing.

"What he is saying is not only that we have to pay attention to what he calls the dispossed; and again, we don't talk about it enough. These are the children who have no jobs all over the world; youth unemployment is off the charts. The elderly people who are watching this program now who are trying to get by on $11,000 a year -- we don't talk about that.

"But you know what else he's even doing? He's talking about the idolatry of money; the worship of money; the greed that's out there. How our whole culture is based on, I need more and more and more. And I don't have to worry about veterans sleeping out on the street or elderly people who can't afford their presciption drugs.

"And he's trying to inject a sense of morality into how we do economics...and we need that absolutely, desperately."

The Vatican conference on April 15 will address social, economic and environmental issues.

"Pope Francis has made clear that we must overcome the globalization of indifference in order to reduce economic inequalities, stop financial corruption and protect the natural environment. That is our challenge in the United States and in the world,” Sanders said in a statement carried by wire services.

The Washington Post quoted Sanders as saying, “I am grateful to the Vatican for inviting me to talk about an issue that is very dear to my heart, which is how we create a moral economy that works for all of the people rather than just the top one percent."

Sanders said he also plans to address "the planetary crisis of climate change and the moral imperative to make sure we leave this planet in a way that is healthy and habitable for future generations.”
