We are all familiar with parody Twitter accounts; someone called Donald J. Trump has a really rather good one going at the moment. When I read the words of a senior Vatican official recently, on the Twitter feed of the Catholic Herald, it seemed just so obvious. A Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorando, according to the report, the chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences it sounds like a job of soul-destroying tedium but is in fact a rather significant position had described the one country in the world that, in the bishops words, was best implementing the social doctrine of the Church. That would be the Peoples Republic of China.
China is the country that had a remarkably successful try at enforcing a one-child policy, promoting massive abortion (a figure of more than 300 million has been suggested) sex-selective, with boys highly favored for birth, girls for elimination enforced sterilization, and execution of criminals. And, of course, the one-party state persecutes the Church and imprisons human-rights advocates. Bishop Sánchez, who said he had been to China and seen all this good work in person, so it must be true, probably wouldnt agree with Cardinal Joseph Zen, the bishop emeritus of Hong Kong, who recently protested the imminent decision of the Vatican to recognize the government-sponsored, quisling Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. That move would be at the expense of the members of the underground Catholic Church, which has stayed loyal to the Vatican and suffered persecution for decades. Zen said that the Vatican, and by that he means Pope Francis, was ready to surrender to the Chinese Communist Party again, perfectly fine if it excelled at implementing the social doctrine of the Church.
The Vatican has become the Sanhedrin. Corrupt pseudo-religious pawns of the political elites.
Another article about Sorando
“That is now changing because of one issue the media cannot ignore and will punish ruthlessly: the covering up, real or imaginary, of sexual abuse. As media start to cover more effectively the catastrophic failures and sleight of hand of this papacy with regard to the abuse of minors, all the other issues begin to emerge.”
I don’t think so. The left has no true love for children and the MSM have a long history of covering up for their friends, including their disingenuous attack on the Pizzagate investigation, which is similar to the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal, only the powerful people getting away with abuse are powerful people in general. The media saw it as to their political advantage to criticize the Pope and the Catholic Church back in the early ‘00s. Now they don’t, and you have to think what they don’t like about the situation is Francis has been clumsy on this, since they now take him as one of them.
The ImPopester is a Marxist, of course he agrees with the Chinese Communist Party.
Good article. Thanks for posting it.
If all this--- "Chinese Patriotic Association,", "Amoris Laetitia", the overthrow of core doctrines in the "Pontifical Academies" and so forth --- is the New Paradigm, then that's just a synonym for all-out war on Catholicism.
Spearheaded by the Pope.
Strange times. Hell-bent times.
