Will a Notorious Anti-Semite Become the Next Pope?

If Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga were to be elected pope, much of the good work done by recent popes in building bridges between the Catholic Church and the Jews would be endangered. This should not be allowed to happen. The campaign against this bigot must begin now before his candidacy develops more traction.

  1. Tim Upham says:

    The Cardinal from Honduras was accusing the Jewish controlled media, of uncovering stories about Roman Catholic priest sexually abusing children to deflect away from the stagnation of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. So if he becomes Pope, he either instigates the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations himself, or apologizes to all the children he sexually abused.

  2. When hasn't the roman catholic church ruled by keeping people in fear of them, with their heresies, as we consider the Vatican or Roman catholic church, "The whore of babylon who sits upon seven hill, s and isn the vatican build on seven hills?

  3. Don't take for granted what Alan Dershowitz is writing. He is well known for distorting the truth "Beyond Chutzpah" in many aspects.
    Don't blame the RC church. Rome is built on seven hills, the Vatican not.
    Jerusalem is also built on seven hills, and called the spiritual Sodom and Egypt.
    There where our Lord has been crucified. (Rev 11:8)

  4. This Cardinal makes perfect sense. The Jews own Chase/Manhattan Bank. BR Morgans.Citibank & The Federal Reserve are all privately owned Jewish businesses . Why would they stop there?

  6. Dave, once you control the majority share of the worlds largest financial institutions, you control all you have set out to achieve… No need to control governments, you already steer them in your direction….

  7. On March 15, 117 Cardinals will enter the Sistine Chapel to choose probably the most powerful
    Man in the world from the smallest country in the world. Pope John Paul 11 brought down Communism in Poland and East Germany by mobilizing the masses against these regimes without firing 'A single shot.' Not bad for one old 70 year old then! The next one will have the same invisible weaponry at his disposal, World Financiers will be looking on with keen interest! The test is hard to speculate.

Pope John Paul 11 brought down Communisim in Poland by rallying the masses against the Regime without firing a single shot, not bad for one frail old man. The international Financiers will be looking on very keenly as to who is elected to this incredible position of power. However it is he will have what no one else in the world can do which is to influence Catholics in every country. When the doors are said to close in the Sistine Chapel the Cardinals in the conclave are said to be guided by God in their chose of Pope. I hope he says the right things to them!

  9. Gary Dalin says:

    Even this pope agreed with his Synod that Jews are Hellbound. They all hate Jews.

  10. Kevin Rudd back as Prime Minister. There is again speculation that Kevin Rudd will replace Gillard as leader of the Labor Party. Many Labor supporters left the Labor party for the Greens or Liberals when Rudd was unceremoniously removed. Rudd says he is not going to challenge again and you would think this to be the case. But if Labor were to have any chance at all in retaining power they need to get rid of Gillard well before the September Federal election. This means the only alternative is for caucus to elect a new leader. If I was a Labor backbencher I would be very worried about retaining my seat, therefore more likely to take a punt on supporting Rudd, however if I was a Labor frontbencher I would more than likely to support Gillard as there would be a greater chance of holding onto my portfolio under Gillard than Rudd. Lets face it how many Labor Ministers would hold onto their positions if Rudd returned as Leader? The Ministers will vote for Gillard if it comes to that because they will think only for themselves not for the nation.At the moment I don't think it would matter if Gillard knocked on every front door in Australia and gave them cash, the fact is a large percentage of Australians ( Labor and otherwise) still have a bitter taste in their mouth how Fillard went about removing Rudd like an assassin in the night. Gillard says she did it for the nation, I am more inclined to think that Gillard did it for Gillard. The whole thing could of course totally backfire for Labor with the Australian people of course. They may say, we'll you didn't allow us our day back then in choosing a PM – why should we support you now that you ( and not we the people) have decided Rudd will return. One thing is for sure Rudd will not challenge again, which leaves it up to the Labor caucus, but as Lyndon. B. Johnson once said in Texas the difference betwee

Thus, despite the increasingly serious problems for the mayor arising out of the current anti-police protests, Mr. de Blasio apparently will be cut no slack by those who seem to be aiming for a significant role in running the city from the streets and who will do whatever they can to prevent their momentum from ebbing.
