ROMAN CATHOLICISM ALSO AN ABOMINATION
another case of cognitive dissonance, so sad to have the corruption verified..
|I know there were measles epidemics at points, but the number is
unbelievable. In one year alone, 57 children died aged between one month
and three years.

Ricca, a 57-year-old Italian prelate is a career Vatican diplomat who … in the past year, has directed the Domus Santa Marta, where the Pope is now living. In his post at the Secretariat of State, Ricca was in charge of accounting for all financial expenditures in all the nunciatures of the world. So he has a certain competence in economic matters.On July 3, Magister – himself a renowned Vaticanologist – ran an article claiming there was evidence that Ricca had engaged in "scandalous behaviour" while in the nunciature in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 2000 and 2001. But there were no specifics. As Moynihan says, it seemed like a public warning to Pope Francis. Nothing happened. Then Magister published a much more damning article, entitled "The Prelate of the Gay Lobby". He wrote:
His staff confirm that he is a considerate, thoughtful man. I myself, during recent stays in the Domus, have spoken with him several times, and he has spoken eloquently of the need for Christians to live out the Christian faith, especially through acts of charity toward the poor and needy.
During these years, Ricca got to know Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio [who] came not only to know Ricca, but to trust him.
When Bergoglio became Pope, and decided to remain in the Domus Santa Marta, he turned to Ricca, with whom he often took his meals at the great central table in the dining room, to help him in his work of cleaning up and reforming the Roman Curia, one of the main things the cardinals asked for in the days leading up to the conclave.
On June 15, the Pope named Ricca to perhaps the key post in the overall effort to reform the curia: his personal representative at the Vatican bank, to oversee every aspect of the managment and reform of the bank.
Since the Vatican bank is a very important "nodal point" for the Curia and for the Church, the Pope's decision to appoint Ricca as his "eyes and ears" at the bank immediately made Ricca much more important than he had ever been before, and a potential target of those who might wish that something up until now hidden at the Vatican bank might not come to light.
In other words, if there were any "weak points" in Ricca's personal or professional past that could be used either to condition, control, or discredit him, his appointment might have made it urgent (to some) to discover those "weak points," and then make use of them.
The black hole in Ricca's personal history is the period he spent in Uruguay, in Montevideo, on the northern shore of the Rio de la Plata, across from Buenos Aires.But if the article was intended to force Francis's hand, it didn't work. To quote Moynihan:
Ricca arrived at this nunciature in 1999, when the mandate of the nuncio Francesco De Nittis was coming to an end. Previously he had served at the diplomatic missions of Congo, Algeria, Colombia, and finally Switzerland.
Here, in Bern, he had met and become friends with a captain of the Swiss army, Patrick Haari. The two arrived in Uruguay together. And Ricca asked that his friend be given a role and a residence in the nunciature.
The nuncio rejected the request. But a few months later he retired and Ricca, having become the chargé d'affaires “ad interim" until the appointment of the new nuncio, assigned Haari a residence in the nunciature, with a regular position and salary.
At the Vatican they let it go. The substitute for general affairs in the secretariat of state at the time was Giovanni Battista Re, a future cardinal, he too originally from the diocese of Brescia.
The intimacy of the relations between Ricca and Haari was so open as to scandalize numerous bishops, priests, and laity of that little South American country, not last the sisters who attended to the nunciature.
The new nuncio, Janusz Bolonek of Poland, who arrived in Montevideo at the beginning of 2000, also found that “ménage” intolerable immediately, and informed the Vatican authorities about it, insisting repeatedly to Haari that he should leave. But to no use, given his connections with Ricca.
In early 2001 Ricca also got into a scrape over his reckless conduct. One day, having gone as on other occasions – in spite of the warnings he had received – to Bulevar Artigas, to a meeting place for homosexuals, he was beaten and had to call some priests to take him back to the nunciature, with his face swollen.
In August of 2001, another mishap. In the middle of the night the elevator of the nunciature got stuck and in the early morning the firemen had to come. They found trapped in the car, together with Monsignor Ricca, a young man who was identified by the police authorities.
Nuncio Bolonek asked that Ricca be sent away from the nunciature and Haari fired immediately. And he got the go-ahead from the secretary of state, Cardinal Angelo Sodano.
Ricca, dragging his heels, was transferred to the nunciature of Trinidad and Tobago, where he remained until 2004. There as well he butted heads with the nuncio. Finally to be called to the Vatican and removed from diplomatic service on the ground …
In Uruguay, the facts reported above are known to dozens of persons: bishops, priests, sisters, laypeople. Without counting the civil authorities, from security forces to fire protection. Many of these persons have had direct experience of these facts, at various moments.
But at the Vatican as well there are those who know about them. The nuncio at the time, Bolonek, always expressed himself with severity with regard to Ricca, in reporting to Rome.
And yet a blanket of public silence has covered until today these past episodes of the monsignor.
Once again, the Pope was not moved. He authorized Father Lombardi [his press officer] to deny the allegations, saying that Magister's report was "not trustworthy," and he did not ask for Ricca's immediate resignation.In the past week, a couple of well-informed priests have contacted me about this crisis. Both noticed the same detail in Magister's second report. When allegations about Ricca were flying around, one of the Vatican officials who apparently chose not to act was Giovanni Battista Re – who went on to become a cardinal and Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops. Re is loathed by traditionalists, who blame him for undermining the pontificate of Benedict XVI; certainly as Prefect until 2010 he arranged the appointment of many bishops who were out of sympathy with Benedict's liturgical and theological opinions – and, also, he didn't handle the paedophile scandals with any skill. The last thing conservatives want is for Re to start flexing his muscles under the new regime; perhaps the Ricca affair will curb his ambitions.
So now the world is wondering: what is the truth? Why are these allegations emerging now, instead of (for example) when the Pope decided to stay in the Domus, directed by Ricca?
Why is the Pope not asking for Ricca's resignation, removing even the suspicion of scandal from the initial efforts of his pontificate to reform the Roman Curia?
I have been a Vaticanist for a quarter century. In those years, I have seen many cases when what seems to be true at first glance is not the truth, or not the whole truth. There is information, and there is disnformation. There are maneuvers to gain influence or to ward off change. This can even include discrediting a person with false charges. We must be very attentive to weigh all evidence and to ask: Is it true? Who provided the evidence? For what purpose or goal? Why now? And, could the facts have a more innocent explanation than appears at first glance? In short, we have to be cautious, and careful, and fair.
|"What's that? The Goyim are catching on?"|
|Israeli Aademic - you never heard this on Fox News|
|Just another Israeli politician quoting "JEWISH LAW"|
|He's only doing what his Rabbi taught him to do|
|Rabbi Ovadia Yosef|
In 2010, as Obama's called for talks between Netanyahu and Abbas, Ovadia Yosef called Palestinians "evil, bitter enemies of Israel" and said "Abu Mazen and all these evil people should perish from this world. God should strike them with a plague, them and these Palestinians." SaebErekat of PLO said Yosef's remarks were tantamount to a call for "genocide against Palestinians." Previously Yosef had called Arabs as "vipers," and called for Israel to "annihilate" Arabs. "It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable."http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2010/08/201082913280929137.html
|Maybe some are 1 of the snipers 13 kills that day?|
|Or maybe this one?|
ME: "Hi Vic, some dialogue on the grossly inflammatory comments from Jewish religious leaders would be good. Also, Israeli academics calling for the rape of Hamas fighters wives, mother's and sisters. Also the Israeli sniper who bragged about killing 13 Palestinian kids. Also the Israeli Defence Minister signing letters of protection for IDF troops with known racist extremist group Chabad Lubavitch. There is also the matter of former head Sephardic Rabbi of Israel ovadia Yosef calling all non Jews "slaves" for Jews and inciting the murder of Palestinian men, women and children quoting this as "Jewish Religious Law". It would seem this "extremism" is mainstream in Israel rather than "marginalised". Will the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies make public statements denouncing and distancing themselves from this seemingly MAINSTREAM attitude coming out of Israel? "
VIC: " The specifics you cite are despicable. It is most definitely not mainstream opinion in Israel."
ME: " Agreed. But Both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Rabbi's have said the same things over and over again in Israel and on occasion in Western countries. I have countless quotes from Israeli politicians, business leaders, religious leaders espousing these views. Holy books quoted include Tanakh (O.T) Talmud, Shulkan Aruk and various other Rabbinic Commentaries from Mishna (Oral Law). Rabbi Ovadia Yosef is known as "The Rabbi for all Jews". He had 1 million mourners on the street for his funeral. Pictures abound of him embracing Prime minister Netanyahu and Shimon Perez. He has the "Shas Party" with 8 members in the Kinnesette and even the post of Foreign Minister. If these types of views are "despicable" why are the exponents of these views held in such high regard in Israeli society and why have groups such as yourselves not sought to publicly rebuke hose who expound on them?"So, that was the end of that but I have no doubt Vic and the gang down at The Jewish Board Of Deputies are sleeping a little less well these days. After all, a "GOYIM", the son of a "SHIKSA" knows The Truth about exactly what "Judaism" is.
|Say these words at a party of the Jewish Board Of Deputies and you wont be invited again|
