Pope Francis Won’t Confirm Or Deny Ex-Ambassador’s Allegations That He Covered Up For McCarrick


by Hank Berrien, Daily Wire:

Just before midnight on Sunday in Ireland, AP reported that Pope Francis declined to confirm or deny claims by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano that he informed Francis in 2013 about sexual misconduct allegations against ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

Archbishop Claims Pope Long Knew of U.S. Cardinal’s Abuses

from True Pundit:

On a day when Pope Francis begged “the Lord’s forgiveness” at a shrine in Ireland for the clerical sex abuse scandals that threaten his church, a former top-ranking Vatican official alleged that Francis himself knew about the abuses of a now-disgraced American prelate years before they became public.

The bombshell accusation, leveled by Carlo Maria Viganò, the Vatican’s top diplomat in the United States between 2011 and 2016 and a staunch critic of Francis, immediately threatened to derail the pope’s already difficult mission to demonstrate his commitment to combating the cover-up of sexual abuse.

Instead, Francis and several other top-ranking Vatican officials were now accused of being part of the cover-ups as Archbishop Viganò called for their resignations.

WATCH: Shapiro Slams Critics Of Pence’s Christianity: ‘There’s A Baseline Level Of Hatred For Christians On The Cultural Left’

by Hank Berrien, Daily Wire:

Speaking with Fox News Host Shannon Bream Thursday night, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro ripped leftists who have targeted Vice President Mike Pence for his Christian faith, saying, “There’s a baseline level of hatred for Christians, on the cultural Left.”

Bream began by citing an op-ed from late July in The New York Times by Frank Bruni, who wrote, “There are problems with impeaching Donald Trump. A big one is the holy terror waiting in the wings. That would be Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel.”

Pope Lectured Trump On Family Separation, But Silent On Priest Child Molestation Report

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Just last month, Pope Francis lectured President Donald Trump for separating children from their criminal parents (and random child-abusing drug smugglers posing as their “parents”) caught illegal entering America at the border.

From CNN on June 20, “Pope criticizes Trump administration over migrant family separations”:

Pope Francis has added his voice to those criticizing the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that has resulted in the separation of families at the Mexican border.

Europe Is Undergoing a Conservative Christian Revival – and the Media Aren’t Telling You About It

by Dr. Stephen Turley, via Lew Rockwell:

It’s not just Russia – its the whole continent

Another interesting video from Dr. Stephen Turley.

We came across Turley recently and find him interesting because his basic argument is that there is a worldwide turn to conservative values, traditionalism, and nationalism, in the US, Eastern Europe, the EU, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, in fact, all continents, and that this change is being driven by the loosening of the liberal, globalist grip on information flow due to technology. You can see all his articles on RI here.

The pope recognises the rights of immigrants at the expense of European civilisation


from Voice Of Europe:

Journalist and writer, Mauro Mazza, said in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, that pope Francis doesn’t defend European values.

“It irritates me that during the influx of mainly Muslim refugees he doesn’t have an eye for the defence of European values. The reception of immigrants may not be at the expense of our European identity, our values and standards,” the author of the book ‘Bergoglio and Prejudice’ says.

Mazza adds that “Pope Francis recognises the rights of immigrants at the expense of our own civilisation. That is not your own cheek to turn, that is away from your own principles.”


by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

I’ve been writing off and on on this site, and in one of my books (The Third Way), about my concerns about CERN and its Large Hadron Collider. My “scenario” of wild high octane speculation with respect to the organization and its multi-billion dollar toy has been two-fold (1) that the collider is as much about higher dimensional physics as it is about particle physics, and that as such, it might introduce effects in the planet itself, or possibly even the Sun, through hitherto unknown resonance effects, and (2) that if it was intentionally, though covertly, exploring such effects, that it would have to have, by dint of the case, a massive computing power to do “data correlations” of collider activity with seemingly non-related events: solar activity. terrestrial magnetosphere behavior, even aspects of aggregate human behavior like markets and so on.

Pope Francis on Saturday accepted the resignation as a cardinal of Theodore McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C. and one of the U.S. Catholic Church’s most prominent figures, who has been at the center of allegations of sex abuse with minors and young seminarians.

Priests in the Catholic Church are not all homosexuals and pedophiles, now nuns from across the world are coming forward to recount horrific stories of sexual abuse by priests and other Catholic clergy. This news comes as Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, accused of sexual acts with both children and young seminarians, has become the first to lose his ‘red hat’ in modern times.


by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Europe must assume a federal structure as soon as possible. The resulting laws and political behaviors are decided by the federal government and the federal parliament, not by individual confederated countries.

Back in March of 2018, the Internet melted down when it came to light that Pope Francis had had a very candid and open interview with Eugenio Scalfari, and in that frank discussion Scalfari revealed that the pope did not believe in the existence of a literal, flame-filled and burning Hell.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)

Christianity Permeates Daily Life in Russia – Even Banks and Restaurants

by Fr. Joseph Gleason, Russia Insider:

Christian artwork on city limits signs, Christian gifts from savings banks, and places for prayer in public restaurants — nobody is trying to push Christianity out of public life, on the contrary, it is welcome and referenced in most places.

In the morally decadent West, we’ve grown used to secularism invading every aspect of life—even our churches are secular! In Russia, however, there’s no such problem. Following is a video of an interesting talk about how Russian culture still involves the church in daily life, and why that’s good.

Italian Bishop: I Would ‘Turn All Churches into Mosques’ to Save Migrants

by Thomas D. Williams Ph.D., Breitbart:

ROME — An Italian bishop has said that he would be willing to see an end to Christianity and the dominion of Islam if it meant saving migrants’ lives, Italian media reported Monday.

“Morally and as a man of faith I would be willing to turn all churches into mosques if it were useful to the cause and if it helped to save the lives of poor and unhappy men and women, because Christ did not come to earth to build churches but to help men regardless of race, religion, or nationality,” said the former bishop of Caserta, Raffaele Nogaro, earlier this month.

So why do all the Liberal comedy sites like Buzzfeed feel complete liberty to mock and belittle Christians and our Saviour Jesus?

While looking through today’s news feed for something new to write about, I came across an interesting article on ultra-liberal site Buzzfeed. An article entitled ‘19 Jokes That Will Have Anyone Who Grew Up Christian Laughing All The Way To Hell‘ caught my eye immediately.

In the article, there were 19 memes and statements mocking just about every aspect of the Bible, Christianity, and their favorite target, Jesus of Nazareth. They even had a real belly-laugher about comparing the majesty and solemnity of the Last Supper to a card trick by occult magician David Blaine.

A Lutheran Pastor Explains – Russia Is a Beacon of Promise for a Christian Future

by Mark Dankof, Russia Insider:

The American military is a regime change janissary force for Israel, the banks, and the fossil fuels cartel – and Russia is standing up to it

As an American who has witnessed the metastasizing of 5th stage cancer in the Empire since the 1960s, I must freely admit that the three holidays in this country which produce the most sadness and profound depression for me at this stage of my life are the 4th of July, Veterans’ Day, and Memorial Day.

Donald Jeffries covers the bases on many of my feelings today at Lew Rockwell in an essay entitled Our Plastic Patriotism. Suffice it to say that cardboard patriots in Star-Spangled Attire mouthing platitudes about “freedom” not only fail to understand that Washington, Adams, and Jefferson would not even recognize what this country has become internationally or domestically, but proceed to a mindless and terrifying embrace of the notion that utilizing the American military as a Regime Change Janissary force for Israel, the banks, and the multinational oil, gas, and mineral consortiums is a laudable thing.

Mass Exodus From The Church: The Percentage Of Young Adults With No Religious Affiliation Has Nearly QUADRUPLED Since 1986

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We are witnessing a religious shift that is unprecedented in size and scope in American history.  With each passing year, the percentage of Americans that claim no religious affiliation is growing, and this trend is especially pronounced among our young people.  If things continue to steadily move in this direction, that is going to have enormous implications for the future of our society.  The United States was founded by people that were extremely committed to their faith, and now we are rapidly becoming a nation where people are choosing no religion at all.  We live at a time when there is a mass exodus from Christian churches, and while it is true that some smaller faiths are growing, the reality of the matter is that most of the people that are leaving are remaining unaffiliated.  According to PRRI, if you go back to 1991 only 6 percent of all Americans were “unaffiliated”, but today that number has shot up to 25 percent…
