A papacy all atwitter

Did the Pope do anything else on June 18, 2015? It was a Thursday.    

I count a total of 63 Tweets. Most of them would fit quite well as left wing, Marxist and environmental paganist political spin. I am reminded that this is the day that Laudato si was issued. What a bombardment of political propaganda.

This was the English Twitter account. How many were there in other languages?

As Barona states in the combox, "Not once was the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ mentioned." Not once!

Are we really stupid enough to believe that he Tweeted all these? Any of them? He can barely speak English! Did he Tweet these in other languages? Did he sit down with the Secretary of State or Fathers Lombardi or Rosica to say, "This is what I want to Tweet today?"

Look, I've not been gentle with this Pope on what he what he says, bu
t let's be real.

There are people in the Vatican who have a diabolical political agenda who are using the Pope for their own advantage. It is disgusting that they have seized social media for their own use and to do it in the name of the Bishop of Rome, the Vicar of Christ is reprehensible.

The bottom line is this; the Pope himself allows it. Either he is naive and does not know what he is allowing these malefactors to do in his name or does know about it and he is supporting and encouraging it.

Either way, it's a problem.

And this is not magisterial teaching. 

It is utter bovine product of consumption.

  1. Lord, seize us with your power and light, help us to protect all life, to prepare for a better future.
  2. Let us sing as we go. May our struggles and our concern for this planet never take away the joy of our hope.
  3. An integral ecology includes taking time to reflect on our lifestyle and our ideals.
  4. Christian spirituality proposes an alternative understanding of the quality of life.
  5. Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is not a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.
  6. The teachings of the Gospel have direct consequences for our way of thinking, feeling and living.
  7. The emptier a person’s heart is, the more he or she needs to buy, own and consume.
  8. Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change.
  9. Believers must feel challenged to live in a way consonant with their faith.
  10. We know how unsustainable is the behaviour of those who constantly consume and destroy.
  11. A decrease in the pace of production and consumption can at times give rise to another form of progress and development.
  12. Reducing greenhouse gases requires honesty, courage and responsibility.
  13. Interdependence obliges us to think of one world with a common plan.
  14. Leaving an inhabitable planet to future generations is, first and foremost, up to us.
  15. What is at stake is our own dignity.
  16. What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?
  17. The world we have received also belongs to who will follow us.
  18. Having a home has much to do with a sense of personal dignity and the growth of families.
  19. For indigenous communities, land is not a commodity, but a gift from God, a sacred space.
  20. We need an integrated approach to combating poverty and protecting nature.
  21. It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly.
  22. The culture of relativism drives one person to take advantage of another, to treat others as mere objects.
  23. Christian thought sees human beings as possessing a particular dignity above other creatures.
  24. There is an urgent need for us to move forward in a bold cultural revolution.
  25. Scientific and technological progress cannot be equated with the progress of humanity and history.
  26. By itself the market cannot guarantee integral human development and social inclusion.
  27. We are learning all too slowly the lessons of environmental deterioration.
  28. It is possible that we don’t grasp the gravity of the challenges before us.
  29. Each age tends to have only a meagre awareness of its own limitations.
  30. Never has humanity had such power over itself, yet nothing ensures that it will be used wisely.
  31. For believers, this becomes a question of fidelity to the Creator.
  32. Earth is essentially a shared inheritance, whose fruits are meant to benefit everyone.
  33. We continue to tolerate some considering themselves more worthy than others.
  34. We should be particularly indignant at the enormous inequalities in our midst.
  35. At times more zeal is shown in protecting other species than in defending the equal dignity of human beings.
  36. A fragile world challenges us to devise intelligent ways of directing, developing and limiting our power.
  37. Every creature is the object of the Father’s tenderness, who gives it its place in the world.
  38. “Creation” has a broader meaning than “nature”; it has to do with God’s loving plan.
  39. Each community has the duty to protect the earth and to ensure its fruitfulness for coming generations.
  40. The present world system is certainly unsustainable from a number of points of view.
  41. We need only to take a frank look at the facts to see that our common home is falling into serious disrepair.
  42. Whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenceless before the interests of a deified market.
  43. The alliance between economy and technology ends up sidelining anything unrelated to its immediate interests.
  44. Economic interests easily end up trumping the common good.
  45. There is no room for the globalization of indifference.
  46. Developed countries ought to help pay this debt by limiting their consumption of nonrenewable energy.
  47. A true “ecological debt” exists, particularly between the global north and south.
  48. To blame population growth, and not an extreme consumerism on the part of some, is one way of refusing to face the issues.
  49. We have to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
  50. The deterioration of the environment and of society affect the most vulnerable people on the planet.
  51. The human environment and the natural environment deteriorate together.
  52. One particularly serious problem is the quality of water available to the poor.
  53. These problems are closely linked to a throwaway culture.
  54. The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.
  55. Climate change represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.
  56. The climate is a common good, belonging to all and meant for all.
  57. “To commit a crime against the natural world is a sin against ourselves and a sin against God.” (Patriarch Bartholomew)
  58. The throwaway culture of today calls for a new lifestyle.
  59. There is a value proper to each creature.
  60. There is a need to seek other ways of understanding the economy and progress.
  61. There is an intimate relationship between the poor and the fragility of the planet.
  62. We need a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.
  63. I invite all to pause to think about the challenges we face regarding care for our common home.

That was the release date of Laudato Si, so I guess the idea was to simultaneously carpet bomb the masses with fortune cookie messages. It's almost creepy how banal they all are. @Pontifex issued more tweets that day than in the 4+ months since then.

Barona said...

Not ONCE was the HOLY name of OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST mentioned!
I do not believe he wrote this nonsense. It was written by evil malefactors ("the wolves").

We don't have a Catholic Vatican. This Vatican employs the ways of the world, since it choses to be like the world, to lie to, manipulate and deceive ordinary people into believing in its earthly Utopia for the sole purpose of getting richer.

One of the ways the Vatican uses is: Propaganda.

What is Propaganda?

Propaganda is a form of communication, often biased or misleading in nature, aimed towards influencing the attitude of a population toward some cause, position or political agenda.

Propaganda is information that is not impartial and used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively (perhaps lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or using loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information presented.

While the term propaganda has acquired a strongly negative connotation by association with its most manipulative and jingoistic examples, propaganda in its original sense was neutral and could refer to uses that were generally positive, such as public health recommendations, signs encouraging citizens to participate in a census or election, or messages encouraging persons to report crimes to law enforcement.

Laudato Si is a secular/economic/political document which has little, if anything, to do with religion. If only our prelates concentrated on Catholic issues, e.g upholding Holy Matrimony, subsidising catholic schools & hospitals, substantially supporting Christian victims in the ME, evangelising a secular & atheistic world and condemning zero working hours which has led to couples hardly able to support themselves never mind a family, hence the use of contraception on a wide scale. They have callously cast aside such issues in favour of accepting sodomy, cohabitation, degrading Holy Communion by wanting to offer it to the non-repentent with the equivalent downgrading of Confession & our liturgy of ages, for according to PF we are all the same now and even Atheists can gain heaven by good deeds (no longer necessary to believe in God) LOL. The Vatican exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth is reported as saying that the Vatican reeks with Satanism, and he should know. We must wake up to the fact that Masonic/Mafia gangsters are running the show in the Vatican and keep putting pressure on the "good" prelates to do something quickly about denouncing this Papacy.

This is a good example of Francis's evil New Age materialist and statist ideology - wholly opposed to God and His Holy Faith and moral laws. Ignoring or supporting the evil he ought to be fighting, whilst promoting false goods.

Pope Francis does not mention Jesus Christ to the World. This is his Vocation as Pontiff is to go out and convert all nations not revert all nations. This has been the case with the post Vatican II where the Vatican stopped all attempts to covert the Jews to the Catholic Faith which goes against Christ and the Apostles that were Martyred for converting the Jews. The Pope sees himself as a political figure among his secular counterparts at the UN which is a nest for Satan's wicked deeds.

"An urgent need... Bold cultural revolution".
"Developed countries ought to help pay this debt..."
"The present world system is certainly unsustainable..."
"...A question of fidelity to the Creator."
"Another form of progress and development... "A decrease in pace of production and consumption."

It is all here. It is very frightening. I was enrolled in a Master's program (Environmental Design Studies) some 20 years ago where we were bombarded with "sustainable development" and the "bold cultural revolution". The architects of this revolution talked about the necessity of incrementalism, as not to shock the populace too much, the role of NGO's, legal rights for streams, a changing paradigm, new language, cultural relativism, sick buildings (my co-student got mad at me, because I would not make up false readings of "harmful pollutants" in a dentist's office) and so on.
I had enough, when I had to read and discuss a woman's relationship with the rock as she was climbing it.

There is a lot of truth and a lot of lie in the environmental talk, but the top-down solution this pope is supporting will be worse then communism in Soviet Russia. All these "poor" want a higher standard of living. That's what they want. Their puppet governments make deals with the West, and while growing rich, they abuse the poor. It will only get worse, not better - and this time they are making us all here "pay the debt". They are dead serious. Many of us live thriftily, have to heat our homes, pay our mortgages, many do not consume a lot at all. Now they bring the pope's favoured poor people - all wanting a life style we are forbidden to aspire to. They use and abuse them, use and abuse us. Madness. He can't be this clueless. He is not being used. He wants a bold cultural revolution. Like Mao. This is why he won't tweet about Jesus. Jesus didn't say a word about wealth redistribution by the hand of our ruling psychopaths.

Judging by the banality of these papal "tweets" it would seem that he uses the same writer as "our lady" of Medjugorje.

Thoroughly depressing.

Bergoglio's brain is full of toxic gas and excrement. Perhaps he can apply LaudatoSi to flush the trash out of his system.

He knows good and well what is being put forth.

Religion of Anti Christ ,no Crucified Christ , playing down the Divinity of Jesus Christ ,promoting him as a Social Reformer ,playing down the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament ,if possible removing Tabernacles from Churches ,no sin ,no Hell ,no images or statues of Saints.they have even gone so far as to place the Blessed Sacrament in cardboard boxes and paper cups ,while they drink from the finest crystal.

Reading those quippy one-liners, I have this mental picture of a greasy haired 16-year-old kid sitting at his computer with an opened bag of Chinese fortune cookies, munching away, reading, typing, reading, munching, typing...
