Geo. Soros’ “Pick” at the Conclave?

From TIA, today ( and as always, with apologies to Serv ). I no longer have my notes from an article I wrote more than a two years ago for Catholic Family News concerning Soros’ hydra-headed subversive organizations, but I would not be surprised if Mr. kincaid’s comments are dead on. Frankly, I doubt this particular liberal cardinal will get elected. But ain’t it interestin’ just who thinks a few bucks into the hat is still a good investment? Gosh, I wonder why?

Black Socialist Pope to Follow Black Socialist President?

Cliff Kincaid — March 4, 2013

With African Catholic Cardinal Peter Turkson in the running as the next pope, the media have noted that he carries the fancy title of the president of the Pontifical Cou?ncil for Justice and Peace, an arm of the Vatican. But they have failed to note the existence of a left-wing lobby in the U.S. working feverishly on his behalf. It is the same group of radicals, with connections to billionaire hedge-fund operator George Soros, who backed Obama for president by claiming he shared their Catholic values.

One of Turkson’s chief supporters in the U.S. appears to be Stephen Schneck, an associate professor of politics at the Catholic University of America (CUA) and a top official of “Catholics for Obama.” He runs CUA’s Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies and holds conferences featuring left-wing and liberal speakers.

Former AFL-CIO boss John Sweeney, a member of Democratic Socialists of America, told one of Schneck’s conferences that Jesus Christ was pro-union. Another speaker was socialist Harold Meyerson.

When Turkson’s Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace issued a controversial 2011 document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Political Authority,” Schneck called it “breathtaking” and a “Catholic way forward” from the present crisis.

A “global political authority” was endorsed by Pope Benedict XVI’s Charity in Truth encyclical in 2009.

Schneck, who served on the board of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, a group funded by Soros, is so important a figure in progressive Catholic circles that there is speculation that Obama will appoint him as U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican. A writer noted that Schneck “has worked hand-in-glove with different offices at the USCCB [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops], with Catholic Relief Services, with the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders and the Catholic Coalition for Climate Change, and with other Catholic groups, organizing conferences that call attention to important issues.”

He wrote that “Schneck’s range of political and media contacts, his organizational capabilities, his ability to distinguish a central from a peripheral issue, all are vital to making these conferences a success. He brought Cardinal Peter Turkson to CUA two years ago for a conference on Rerum Novarum.”

Rerum Novarum is a papal encyclical in which, as William Mayer notes, “the Church proclaimed itself competent to speak on economic matters, establishing a justification for governmental control, to a greater or lesser degree, of the marketplace and by extension, players within the economy, including everyday citizens and businesses.”

Rerum Novarum is the basis for many “social justice” theories promoted by leftist and Marxist operatives in the church.

Turkson, who is from Ghana, has taken “social justice” to the global level, arguing for a “global financial authority” to solve the world’s economic problems.

For this reason, left-wing “progressives” backing Obama hope Turkson will be the next pope and use the Vatican in a global campaign against capitalism.

Vatican Radio said the Turkson document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Political Authority,” had “proposed the creation of a global political authority to manage the economy and a new world economic order” with the United Nations “as a point of reference.”

Crisis Magazine, a conservative Catholic publication, said it contained “some downright frightening prescriptions for reshaping the worldwide economy” and could be seen as “a blueprint for a George Soros agenda.”

Turkson spoke at the May 2, 2011, conference organized by Schneck at CUA on the subject of Rerum Novarum. He appeared with Bishop Stephen E. Blaire, chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Alexia K. Kelley, deputy director of the Obama White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. He was scheduled to speak at this weekend’s 30th Anniversary conference of the Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN) at Notre Dame.

The event, held in collaboration with the far-left Institute for Policy Studies, included workshops and panels on such topics as: • Examining International Aid to Africa in the Light of Catholic Social Teaching
•Climate Change and Its Impact on the People of Africa
• The expansion of U.S. military activities in Africa
The group says about itself: “AFJN works primarily with the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government to advance our message of social justice, though we are also registered as a UN-DPI [Department of Public Information] organization at the United Nations.”

It counts the Department of Social Development and World Peace, the national public policy agency of the U.S. Catholic Bishops, as one of its “collaborating organizations.” – Original here.

  1. National Catholic Distorter: How about it, Father Sarducci, does a professor at the Catholic University of America in Washington
    control the College of Cardinals in Rome?

    Father Sarducci: “Well, like, I don’t know whether he could even fix parking tickets in Washington, D.C.
    I’ve got one, so, if he knows somebody like President Obama who can take care of that, I’d be interested.
    But, listen, all of these liberals have been giving the Pope a hard time for not explaining the microbiology of STDs, and how to use rubbers,
    to these illiterate tribesmen in the bush in Africa.
    I just wanna know, like, couldn’t President Obama explain it to them?

    I mean President Obama is a highly respected man with a doctorate from Notre Dame and he’s part African, he must know what causes AIDS,
    so maybe like he could take time out from golfing and trips to Vegas and explain to the African tribesmen how to use rubbers when they’re visitin’ prostitutes.
    And this could go a long way to put at ease people in Africa who have been waitin’ for an 85-year-old German guy in Rome to explain to them
    how to use condoms for unsafe sex when visitin’ prostitutes.
    You’d-a think liberals would have thought of this themselves.”

  2. Yes, by all means let us reduce the Pope and the Church to the level of crash politics. A chicken in everyone’s pot. Let’s bring paradise here on earth. Peace and justice and love everywhere. Who would need God? Why, us enlightened creatures have all the answers. After all we are gods ourselves and Jesus, our brother, was actually the first socialist. That he got himself killed was just too bad for him.

    Yes, Saint Soros has all the answers and we would do well to listen and follow him. Go, Vatican, be smart, be wise, and join the parade. It is the new world religion and the NovusOrdo stuff fits in just perfect. Way to go!!!
