It's an oxymoron to say that you disagree with the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church, and criticize their mass, historical, colossal corruption, then come back and quote a Bible verse. They are birds of the same feather. ~ taskeinc

The Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church

The Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church are the most astounding wealth accumulators and property owners in existence, with large investments in banking, insurance, chemicals, steel, construction, and real estate. Unlike ordinary stockholders, the Vatican pays no taxes on their income. Two-thirds of the world earns less than $2 per day, and one-fifth of the world is under-fed or starving to death. The Vatican hoards the world's wealth, profits from it on the stock market, and at the same time, preaches about giving. This is why they want to keep you in the dark, to keep you reading a 2000-year-old book, in order to control and keep you submissive.

The Vatican is God's Las Vegas. It has a net worth of at least $50 billion and wields a totally irresponsible abuse of power. The Vatican and the Roman Catholic church are intent on taking the church back to the early 17th century. In 81 countries, it's illegal to be gay, 7 countries you can actually be put to death.

The Vatican and the Pope are OK with that. One of the most basic teachings of the Catholic Church is that all people are children of God, and that they are entitled to dignity and respect and the church is not living up to that. The ultimate irony is that there is no other organization that has such a high proportion of Gay people in its employ. 20-50% of all priest are Gay.

The greatest hypocrisy in the church today is that child protection is not the most important issue. A document called "Crimen Sollicitationis" or "Crime of Enticement," published in 1962, is an order to all archbishops, bishops, cardinals, and heads of religious orders. The document contains actual proof of an organized Vatican cover-up. Part of it states, "anyone involved in a sex abuse investigation, the accuser and the accused are to be restrained by a perpetual silence .. in all matters and with all persons, under the penalty of excommunication."

Before he became Pope, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger served as prefect of the congregation to the doctrine of the faith. During which time he issued a confidential order to every bishop that all sex abuse investigations were to be kept top secret for up to 10 years after the victim reached adulthood upon penalty of excommunication. You might ask, why wasn't the pope under some sort of investigation. In 2005, the pope was granted immunity from liability in any sex abuse cover-ups in the U.S. by President George W. Bush.

Nothing has provoked more outrage in the international community than the Vatican's unwavering condemnation of condoms. Even in the face of over-population and AIDS. The idea that the Vatican stands in the way of the protection that people need is morally, ethically, and profoundly wrong.

The church presents itself as the perfect society, the Bella figura, as everything perfect that exist in the world because it's inspired by God and the Holy Spirit. It's a business and we know it is a business, but in order to keep the cash flow going the church has to keep that perfect idea in order to keep people contributing to it. Callous disregard for human suffering, they have never been an honest institution, it's never been a decent institution, and it won't change in the foreseeable future from it's dreadful, amoral past. It's all about power. The more well-informed people are, the less power the Vatican will have.

Casti Connubii

Casti Connubii champions the indissoluble nature of marriage. Since marriage is a divine institution, man is not free to reinvent or disregard its laws. Divorce is forbidden, both by the nature of marriage itself and by divine law. The marriage bond is not subject to mutable civil law (as Martin Luther claimed), but only to unchanging divine law. No civil law can dissolve the indissoluble bond of marriage. No human authority can separate what God has permanently joined.

The Hubble Deep Field (HDF) is an image of a small region in the constellation Ursa Major, constructed from a series of observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. It covers an area 2.5 arcminutes across, about one 24-millionth of the whole sky, which is equivalent in angular size to a 65 mm tennis ball at a distance of 100 metres.

The image was assembled from 342 separate exposures taken with the Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 over ten consecutive days between December 18 and December 28, 1995.

Three years after the HDF observations were taken, a region in the south celestial hemisphere was imaged in a similar way and named the Hubble Deep Field South.

The similarities between the two regions strengthened the belief that the universe is uniform over large scales and that the Earth occupies a typical region in the universe (the cosmological principle).

A wider but shallower survey was also made as part of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey. In 2004 a deeper image, known as the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF), was constructed from a total of eleven days of observations.

The HUDF image was at the time the most sensitive astronomical image ever made at visible wavelengths, until the Hubble Extreme Deep Field (XDF) was released in 2012

Casti Connubii likewise affirms the unchanging, procreative purpose of marriage: "The primary end of marriage is the procreation and education of children." This does not exclude other purposes of marriage, such as love and mutual support. But the nature of the marriage act is primarily ordered to procreation, just as the nature of eating is primarily ordered to nutrition. Denying the procreative purpose of sex (contraception, sterilization, homosexuality) is like denying the nutritive purpose of eating (bulimia, anorexia, gluttony): both are disorders. "Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious."

Casti Connubii affirms that children are not a curse to be scraped from a mother's womb, but a blessing. In fact they are the primary blessing of marriage. In marriage, parents are called "to raise up fellow citizens of the Saints, and members of God's household." Since the responsibility to raise godly children is of such supreme importance "every use of the faculty given by God for the procreation of new life is the right and the privilege of the married state alone, by the law of God and of nature, and must be confirmed absolutely within the sacred limits of that state." In other words, the gift of sex cannot be separated from children, and the gift of children cannot be separated from marriage.

Pope Francis

Even if Pope Francis I (who took his name from a 13th century saint who gave up his wealth and threw in his lot with the poor), wanted to change the economic climate of the Catholic Church, it would be comparable to a two-year-old being in the ring with a young Mike Tyson. One punch from the sinister Catholic Church and the Vatican, there would be no need for the 10-count. Pope Francis would suffer a similar fate as a couple of great Americans who attempted to alter the financial and social course of the United States.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Martin Luther King tried valiantly to change the economic and social atmosphere in America. King was successful with social issues, but Kennedy did not live long enough to take down the Federal Reserve, the group that was responsible for his assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald was only the fall-guy which is why he was shot and killed two days later, at point-blank range, while surrounded by dozens of police, in a police station! One look at the Zapruder film and it's clear that Kennedy was shot from at least two different angles, by more than one assassin (shot from the front, he clutches his throat, then the fatal shot a few seconds later that nearly took his head off - one shooter, no way). Oswald's widow would later comment, "The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank."

Martin King was assassinated in 1968 only after he turned his dynamic oratory and organizing skills to protesting the Vietnam War. As long as he stuck with the civil rights movement, the American power structure didn't necessarily care what he was saying because it didn't involve their egregious and humongous cash flow. Just as the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church doesn't care what Jorge Mario Bergoglio is saying as long as it doesn't affect their money and power.

One paycheck from the Vatican would wipe out starvation in a couple of countries. If they have not done it up to this point, Pope Francis won't be able to force their hand, nor would he actually try. Anyone can stand before thousands and make Rah-Rah, highly motivational speeches, ministers do it every Sunday, as they pad their pocketbooks.

Actions speak louder than words. Unfortunately for Jorge, he is the leader of an extremely corrupt organization that rules the world. There have been other popes who have identified, what the Roman Catholic Church views as major threats to world peace. They see those threats as terrorism, international crime, and unregulated financial markets. Not poverty, not starvation, not religion, not war, but all the world's problems revolve around the color GREEN. That's part of the con. The biggest terrorists in human history, has always been the Catholic Church. These "Ecumenical Gangsters" are partners and associates of international crime and set the tone for unregulated financial markets, war, and manufactured recessions.
