Romero, Francis’ Ecology & Alinsky’s Rules
In What Church Is Romero a Martyr?
I am passing on to you and your readers this good analysis by Frank Rega, which I read in his blog
The Shield of the Faith
, on Archbishop Oscar Romero: “He was killed at the altar,” Archbishop Paglia said, instead of when he was an easier target at home or on the street. “Through him, they wanted to strike the Church that flowed from the Second Vatican Council.”
Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia the Vatican official who is leading Romero's sainthood cause, put it this way Wednesday: Romero was "a martyr of the church of the Second Vatican Council." The Salvadoran's murder, Paglia said, was part of a "climate of persecution against a pastor that followed the evangelical experience, the documents of the Second Vatican Council, of Medellin [and] had chosen to live with the poor to defend them from oppression."
This is all very telling. Archbishop Paglia has perhaps inadvertently exposed and revealed what is at the root of the crisis in the Church today when he speaks of the "Church of the Second Vatican Council."
What is the difference between a Church that flowed from and was defined by the Second Vatican Council, vs. the Church was born of the blood of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Calvary? The Church formed by Jesus is concerned with the glory of God and the salvation of souls. That of the Council is concerned with man's well-being in the material world - more with the poverty of "things" than with poverty of spirit; more concerned with man being accepted by others than being accepted by God.
One Church seeks the conversion of all men to the true faith, and opposes the worship of false gods. The other Church teaches that the Triune God of the Christians is the same as that of Islam (who has no Son), and therefore dialog and not conversion is the appropriate approach.
When I pray to St. Francis of Assisi to intercede for the conversion of the Muslims, it is for conversion to the Church that flowed from the side of Christ, not the one that flowed from the Second Vatican Council! That is, to the Church that flows from the Blood of a Divine Person, rather than one flowing from the documents of men.
Here is what
had to say about the former:
"When He slept on the Cross, He bore a sign, yea, He fulfilled what had been signified in Adam: for when Adam was asleep, a rib was drawn from him and Eve was created; Genesis 2:21-22 So also while the Lord slept on the Cross, His side was transfixed with a spear, and the Sacraments flowed forth, John 19:34 whence the Church was born. For the Church the Lord's Bride was created from His side, as Eve was created from the side of Adam. But as she was made from his side no otherwise than while sleeping, so the Church was created from His side no otherwise than while dying." St. Augustine.
Francis-Obama Axis in Ecology
National Catholic Reporter
triumphantly reports the visit of the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy, to the Vatican on Friday (January 31). She said
she wanted to let Pope Francis know that President Barack Obama is "aligned with him" on the issue of climate change
and is taking action.
"I think the pope knows his own beliefs," McCarthy said. "I want him to know that the president is aligned with him on these issues and that we are taking action in the United States."
McCarthy expressed her approval and support of Francis' expected encyclical on environmental issues, which the pope has indicated will be published in June or July.
She took advantage of the opportunity to thank many other Catholic organizations for their stands and work on climate change: Catholic Relief Services, the U.S. Bishops' Conference, and the Catholic Climate Covenant, a coalition of dozens of progressivist Catholic organizations, dioceses, religious communities and colleges working on the issue.
As more and more scientists are proclaiming that climate change is scientifically a hoax and more a tool of the socialist revolution, the pope bolsters up the bogus science. How crazy is that?
Alinsky’s Plan for the U.S.
Please, read these rules and then answer my question at the bottom.
How to Create a Socialist State
by Saul Alinsky
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state.
1. Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people.
2. Poverty - Increase the poverty level as high as possible. Poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3. Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4. Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5. Welfare - Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
6. Education - Take control of what people read and listen to, take control of what children learn in school.
7. Religion - Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
8. Class Warfare - Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor.
Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?
Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin's original scheme for world conquest by Communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as "Useful Idiots." The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.
If people can read this and still say everything is just fine, they are useful idiots.
