“After a highly anticipated meeting, Pope Francis appears to have left his mark on President Donald Trump. “Thank you. I won’t forget what you said,” Trump told Pope Francis, before leaving the Pope’s private study after a half-hour private meeting. Neither Trump nor the Pope revealed what their conversation entailed, but readouts from the White House and the Vatican highlighted terrorism, climate change and peace as agenda items covered.” –Source
The world’s most powerful president and religion’s most visible voice with meet for the first time Wednesday — but not before President Trump has to cross through the Vatican wall that divided the two men, metaphorically, last year.
Long a symbol of the Vatican’s majesty, the wall also became for Mr. Trump evidence of Pope Francis’s hypocrisy, after the pontiff last year, responding to a reporter’s question about the U.S.-Mexico border, said wall-builders are “not Christian.”
Mr. Trump’s famous response was that the pope himself lived behind “an awfully big wall.” Continue reading →
“Mayhem. That’s the only word to describe what is taking place in the Church today. Remember the archbishop who released a scandalous Vatican sex-ed program at World Youth Day in Krakow? He was appointed as the new head of the Pontifical Academy for Life and Rome’s John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family. Both institutions have now been stripped bare – the Academy of all its members and the Institute of its most conservative faculty. Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia recently gushed praise for one of Italy’s leading proponents of abortion, same-sex “marriage” and restriction on religious freedom. More than that, prior to his Vatican post he commissioned a homoerotic mural in his cathedral church in which he had included an image of himself.” –Source
And it goes on from there about some of the scandals in the Vatican. But they most assuredly don’t cover all of them. In fact, if they were to peruse my website to just hit on the highlights (or lowlights for that matter) regarding the Vatican’s sinful past the last few decades alone, they would have one very large article to contend with.

(RNS) The Vatican’s point man on family issues and a U.S. cardinal who is close to Pope Francis have both blurbed a new book by a Jesuit priest and popular author that calls on the Catholic Church to be more respectful and compassionate toward gay people.
They called it “brave, prophetic, and inspiring” and a “much-needed book.”
Such positive language from such senior church leaders is extraordinary and another sign of how Francis is reorienting the church toward a more pastoral focus. Continue reading →
“Sunday, on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” talk show host Jerry Springer suggested that White House Chief Strategist and former Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon “has a philosophical goal” to “do away with a multicultural America,” which is why he and President Donald Trump go after the courts and the media. “Bannon has a philosophical goal, and that is, as I said before, to do away with a multicultural America. He wants America to be basically Christian and white. So keep out the Mexicans, keep out the Muslims, etc.,” Springer explained.” –Source
Jerry Springer, for those of you that may not know, was a flailing politician in 1970 who ran for Congress and failed only to be elected to the Cincinnati council in 1971 and then resign in disgrace after admitting he purchased services from a brothel in 1974. Still, even though all that happened he was re-elected in 1974 showing all of us how corrupt the American voter has become. He then went on to become Mayor and then tried once to become Governor as well as attempting more than one run for the US Senate. But he wasn’t done. His desire to destroy America from within pushed him to create the “Jerry Springer Show” wherein he flaunted all sorts of sick, disgusting and perverted lifestyles of the poor and infamous in the Chicago area.

“A Georgetown professor has penned a column in the Washington Post saying the Muslim Brotherhood does not exist in America and even if it did, it’s an entirely peaceful organization. In an op-ed titled “Calling the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization Would Hurt All American Muslims,” Professor Arjun Singh Sethi says that “the Brotherhood disavowed violence long ago.” Groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America or ISNA and Muslim Student Association or MSA have “no connection to it,” according to Sethi, even though the connections have been documented by countless other scholars, FBI officials and investigative journalists. He also tries to discredit the much-quoted “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” authored by Brotherhood member Mohamed Akram. “This memorandum, of which there is only one known copy, has been widely discredited and called a fantasy,” Sethi writes.” –Source
One would think that him being a Professor he would have done just a tad bit more research before publishing such folderol any journalist wannabe could research out in their kitchen on any cellphone to find the real truth on this. But being a Professor in a Vatican funded Jesuit University one has to realize the power behind the comment and so the demographic research would have to be looked at to assure a positive outcome on all this before releasing such a statement. The numbers are there and they knew before going to press that the majority in the nation, and those Soros and Rome pay to riot in the streets, are the type of sheeple anyone with viable gray matter knows to be morally unstable to the point they would switch sides at the drop of a dime; or maybe a bulging promised bag of bitcoins, (perhaps 30?) and so they needed to make sure the to appeal to employed rioters would believe such comments as we see this Professor sharing. I mean after all, they don’t want to upset the pawns unless they can profit by their ill repute en masse; and one can rest assured martial law can be quite profitable for those in power. Especially those that purchased nationally sized portions of dry goods they can sell at puffed up prices when the store shelves go empty. (BTW: For those that don’t think Soros is working with Catholics, click here)
“Marie Collins, an Irish survivor of clerical sex abuse, resigned Wednesday from Pope Francis’s child protection panel, accusing senior Vatican officials of “shameful” blocking of reforms approved by the pontiff. Collins’s departure and her depiction of high-level obstruction of change is an embarrassing blow to the pontiff’s attempts to demonstrate that the Church is effectively combating a scourge that has profoundly damaged its image over recent decades. The 70-year-old, who was raped by a hospital chaplain at 13, explained her decision in an article for the National Catholic Reporter (NCR). As a survivor I have watched events unfold with dismay,” she wrote. Her resignation happened days after Francis came under fire for reducing sanctions imposed on some paedophile priests in line with his desire for the Church to be more merciful across a range of issues.” –Source
“Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope’s own advisers question. One case has come back to haunt him: An Italian priest who received the pope’s clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, The Associated Press has learned.” –Source
It’s exactly as I’ve been saying for literally decades. Roman Catholic priests do not become pedophiles once they join the unbiblical priesthood, the truth is pedophiles become Catholic priests knowing they will be protected. This is also why the Vatican is the only church on earth with “altar boys.” This allows them the “religious” lie they t ell parents that they need to be alone with their sons so as to better educate them in their duties as altar boys.

The Vatican announced Wednesday that it will crack down on unauthorized use of the Papal crest and images.
The move comes amid obvious concern from Vatican officials about the growing criticism of Pope Francis.
For example, a recent attempt to criticize the Pope – in traditional Roman sarcastic manner – with posters was condemned by a senior Vatican cardinal as a “work of the devil.”
A press statement published by the Vatican Wednesday announced that the Secretariat of State will widen its surveillance over the Papal insignia and put an end to any possible “illegal” uses of the crest. Continue reading →
The Vatican and one of Islam’s most renowned schools of Sunni thought are joining forces to discuss how they can work together in combating religious extremism that uses God’s name to justify violence.
On Feb. 21 the Vatican announced that Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, will travel to Cairo to participate in a special seminar at the Al-Azhar University.
He will be joined by the council’s secretary, Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, and the head of their Office for Islam, Msgr. Khaled Akasheh, to discuss the theme “The role of al-Azhar al-Sharif and of the Vatican in countering the phenomena of fanaticism, extremism and violence in the name of religion.” Continue reading →
