Pope hangs image of nude Jesus caressing Judas behind his desk

A report by the Vatican's own newspaper reveals Pope Francis recently hung an image behind his desk depicting a naked Jesus Christ caressing his dead apostle Judas Iscariot.

In an article titled "Judas and the Scandal of Mercy," L'Osservatore Romano dedicated the first three pages of its edition the day before Good Friday to a makeover of the disciple who betrayed the Son of God at the Passover.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ummmm .... yeah.

The Vatican Urges Catholics to Drop Fossil Fuel Investments

Pope Francis and the Vatican are encouraging Catholics around the world to divest from fossil fuels, emphasizing a responsibility to protect both human rights and the environment.

The Vatican recently published a 225-page manual for church leaders and workers. Its publication marked the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ “Laudato Si'” encyclical. A landmark papal letter called for the protection of both the environment and vulnerable people.

Officials presented the new manual, “Journeying for the Care of the Common Home,” at a press conference in the Vatican. It highlights practical ways in which Catholics can achieve the broad goals first laid out in 2015’s encyclical.

The Holy See Interdicastery Table on Integral Ecology drafted the manual. It suggests people “favor positive changes” by avoiding companies that do not satisfy certain parameters. Examples include child labor, environmental destruction, and human rights violations.

Supreme Court Declines to Hear Religious Liberty Dispute Between California, Texas

The Supreme Court said on April 26 it won’t hear a dispute between Texas and California over the latter’s ban on state-funded business travel.

The nation’s top court delivered the decision in an unsigned order.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in February 2020 asked the Supreme Court to strike down California’s ban of state-funded travel from Texas, enacted in response to a law passed in Texas that allows foster care and adoption agencies to decline placements that don’t align with their religious beliefs.

Canadian bishop again bans Mass, baptisms, confessions, confirmations

Following the recently announced lockdowns in the province of Ontario, Bishop Ronald Fabbro has once again decided to impose a near-complete ban on baptisms and confessions, with exceptions only being granted in “danger of death,” and if a priest decides that there is “a serious need.”

Bishop Fabbro, of the Diocese of London, made the announcement in a press release issued April 17, curtailing nearly the entire public life of the Church in his diocese.

“Baptisms should be discouraged until the lock-down ends, but may be celebrated in danger of death,” he wrote.

A similar restriction was placed by the bishop upon the sacrament of confession, although with somewhat of a greater concession as to when the sacrament could be administered: “Confessions should be discouraged until the lock-down ends, but may be celebrated if the pastor determines a serious need; to be determined on a case-by-case basis; to be celebrated only by appointment.”

American theocracy? Montana adopts law that allows people to challenge regulations that interfere with their religious beliefs

Montana has been accused of undermining America’s secular values after the state passed a bill that will allow people to object to government regulations on religious grounds.
Signed into law by Republican Governor Greg Gianforte on Thursday, the Montana Religious Freedom Restoration Act requires the state government to have a compelling reason to override a person’s constitutional right to freedom of religion, and mandates that any perceived violation of that right be done in the least restrictive way possible. Similar legislation has been adopted by 21 other states.

A spokesperson for Gianforte’s office said in a statement that in the past, such laws have been used to “allow Native American children to wear braids in school, Sikhs to wear turbans in the military, and Christian employers to refuse to cover abortions under their health insurance policies.”

But critics said the bill would open the door to discriminatory practices in areas such as housing and employment.

French archdiocese gives money to build large mosque

Vincent Jordy, recently named archbishop of Tours in the center of France, has been forced to publish a statement after declarations by a local Muslim leader revealed that the Catholic diocese has given funds for the construction of a large mosque, and that these funds can be said to have been financed by the “denier du culte”: parish contributions given by Catholics in the diocese for its upkeep and operating costs.

The story broke ten days ago when a local newspaper, la Nouvelle République, published a story for the beginning of Ramadan on April 13, with comments by the president of the Muslim community of the department of Indre-et-Loire in the Loire valley explaining that the new Grand Mosque of Menneton was not yet ready to receive the Muslim faithful, in particular in its areas destined for public worship.

Petition asks Vatican to cancel ‘health’ conference featuring abortion activists, Fauci, Big Tech oligarchs

A new petition from LifeSite asks the Vatican to cancel its upcoming “health” conference featuring a slew of globalist and pro-abortion speakers, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, Chelsea Clinton, and the CEO of abortion pill-producing drug company Pfizer.

The theme of the conference this year is Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul. It will be held “virtually” from May 6 to 8. The cover photo on the conference website features a spoof of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam in which the hands of God and Adam are both covered in rubber gloves.

Vatican News describes the event as bringing “together physicians, scientists, ethicists, religious leaders, patient rights advocates, policymakers, philanthropists and commentators to discuss the status quo in medical research and technology, and how these are implemented at a global level.”

(video) Ask An Israeli: Do you believe that gentiles (non Jews) will be slaves for the Jews?

NO!
We will not be bought!
We will not be sold!
I am not your slave!

Quoting sanitized Wikipedia "Jewish Views on Slavery" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_views_on_slavery

The Torah and the Talmud contain various rules about how to treat slaves. Biblical rules for treatment of Jewish slaves were more lenient than for non-Jewish slaves and the Talmud insisted that Jewish slaves should be granted similar food, drink, lodging, and bedding, to that which their master would grant to himself.

Pope Francis Goes Full Communist, Says Sharing Property is Not Communism But “Pure Christianity”

Only a few days after Pope Francis pushed for “the regeneration of existing institutions “and “global governance” because we are “in debt to nature itself, as well as the people and countries affected by human-induced ecological degradation and biodiversity loss.”

Here we go again with more leftist propaganda for the Great anti-Christian Reset by the Jesuit Pope.

Pope Francis left the Vatican this morning to celebrate Mass in the nearby church of the Holy Spirit in Sassia in the center of Rome where a group of prisoners and inmates were also present at the celebration as well as some so-called ”refugees” from the Middle East.

So this was the ideal stage for a Communist/Globalist stunt by the Communist Pope.

During the Mass Pope Francis commented on Acts 4:32 that says: “All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.”

Israel said to muzzle Al-Aqsa muezzin as Memorial Day observed at Western Wall

Israeli security forces disconnected the power supply to the Islamic call to prayer on the Temple Mount as an official Memorial Day service was held in the adjacent Western Wall square on Tuesday evening, the site’s Muslim administrators said.

“[Israeli forces] forcibly stormed the minarets of Al-Aqsa Mosque after cutting the door locks with special equipment, then they cut the wires of the main minarets in the mosque,” Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani, who manages the Temple Mount for the Jordanian-backed Islamic Waqf, said on Wednesday.

The Israel Police declined to comment on the alleged operation, refusing to answer over the phone or to a written email query.

OH RAPTURE!

One of the major problems America faces is a large population of religious fundamentalists who have become as fanatical in their own way as any Middle Eastern Ayatollah. At present, they are caught up in their own version of the myth of the end of the world, and hope that by working to bring it about, they'll get to sit at the right hand of their diety and to hell with everyone else. No doubt fistfights will break out over who gets to sit closest, but that is a subject for another article.

Disgusting Best-Selling Prayer Book Includes Prayer Asking God To Help Author “Hate White People”

A self-proclaimed “public theologian and ecumenical minister” specializing in “racial and gender oppression,” who once gave a lecture in which she blamed racism on “pathological whiteness,” is in hot water after a screenshot from her prayer book highlighted her own hatred for white people.

Chanequa Walker-Barnes wrote in her book, “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal,” that she wants God to help her “hate White people.” If that prayer is not answered, she wants God to help her “at least to want to hate [white people].” And if that doesn’t work, “At least, I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls.”

When Islam and Judaism Make Friends…

On Thursday evening at 8pm, every Israeli news channel broadcasted live primetime televised speech delivered by the new Israeli kingmaker, Mansour Abbas, the Leader of the Israeli Islamic party, Ra’am.

( https://youtu.be/RSemTYd-Ahw)

“Now is the time for change,” the conservative Muslim leader told his Hebrew-speaking audience, in Hebrew.

Abbas seems to be the only one who can save Netanyahu’s political future. He knows it and uses the moment to deliver a message of reconciliation and coexistence.

“I carry a prayer of hope, and the search for coexistence based on mutual respect and genuine equality,” Abbas told his Jewish listeners. “What we have in common is greater than what divides us.”

The history of the Israeli Arab conflict reveals that it is always the Arabs who lead dramatic reconciliatory moves and it is only right-wing governments that can positively react to such moves.

Cops PRESSURED by health authority to ticket Full Gospel Outreach Church in Saskatchewan

The Full Gospel Outreach Centre church in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan was levied a $14,000 fine in October. It was, at the time, the largest lockdown ticket issued, for failing to force the congregants attending services to wear masks.

The Full Gospel Outreach ministers to Prince Albert’s inner city residents, who are often homeless, substance addicted and suffering from extreme poverty. Part of the mission of the church involves a clothing bank, delivering meals and helping people escape the streets and the captivity of their vices. The church doesn’t have a lot of money and what they do have goes to the most needy.

Do celebrity pastors really need VERY pricey wardrobe items like $500 Gucci tops and $2,500 Air Jordans on his 'Preachers N Sneakers' account? Meet the Instagram Christian who calls them out

The creator of a wildly popular Instagram account that highlights the impressive wardrobes of America's celebrity pastors has finally been identified two years after taking the internet by storm.

Ben Kirby, a self-described Evangelical from Dallas, revealed himself as the man behind the @PreachersNSneakers account on Monday.

Since opening his account in 2019, Kirby has amassed more than 210,000 followers by posting images of pastors next to exorbitant price tags for the items they're wearing - most commonly, their sneakers.

Among his most liked posts were a photo of Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz - who baptized Justin Bieber - in a pair of $800 Fear of God kicks; Paula White - pastoral adviser to former President Donald Trump - in $785 Stella McCartney slip-ons; and Seattle megachurch pastor Judah Smith in a $3,600 Gucci jacket.

Globalist Pope Francis Says We Must Take Advantage Of COVID Crisis To Start A “New World Order”

In true globalist phraseology, Pope Francis has called for a “new world order” following the COVID-19 “pandemic.” He also advocated for global change on “green” issues, warning that “we cannot waste any more time.”

Just yesterday, Vatican News published an excerpt of the Pope’s book length interview “God and the World to Come,” giving an insight into the content of the full work, which will be available in book stores starting tomorrow. Speaking to the Italian journalist Domenico Agasso, Francis stated, “The world will never be the same again.”

In language apparently drawn from the globalist playbook, the Pope called for “a new world order,” built upon his concept of solidarity, which in turn is drawn from his comments and publications on irreligious fraternity.

Pope calls for ‘new world order,’ says ‘wasting’ COVID crisis would be worse than pandemic

In language apparently drawn from the globalist playbook, the Pope called for “a new world order,” built upon his concept of solidarity, which in turn is drawn from his comments and publications on irreligious fraternity. He called for an eradication of “bullying, poverty and corruption.” At the same time, he emphasized the importance of universal healthcare, which would come about through the practice of “social cohesion.”

Milo Yiannopoulos blasts Pope Francis, says he should be held ‘personally responsible’ for ‘wickedness in this Church’

The prodigal son has returned home, but he’s unhappy with the shepherd in charge of the family flock.

“(Pope Francis) is personally responsible for enough wickedness in this Church that I quake for the future of the Magisterium if he if he's not replaced relatively soon,” Milo Yiannopoulos said in an interview with LifeSiteNews' John-Henry Westen first posted today.

The famous British author and journalist, baptized and raised as a Catholic, made headlines this week when he declared to LifeSiteNews that he is consecrating himself to St. Joseph and means to practice the Catholic faith with integrity. But Yiannopoulos has not returned to the Church with his eyes wide shut. He did, after all, publish in 2018 a book entitled Diabolical: How Pope Francis Has Betrayed Clerical Abuse Victims Like Me — and Why He Has to Go.

Activist Milo Yiannopoulos is now ‘Ex-Gay,’ consecrating his life to St. Joseph

Milo Yiannopoulos, the gay man whose conservative messaging and willingness to speak the truth sparked riots on university campuses may well trigger more outrage now that he describes himself as “Ex-Gay” and “sodomy free,” and is leading a daily consecration to St. Joseph online.

Two years ago, when Church Militant’s Michael Voris famously challenged Yiannopoulos to live a chaste life, Yiannopoulos was not defensive. Instead, he acquiesced, and humbly admitted his human weakness.

“I know everything you’re saying, and I’m just not there yet. And I don’t know if I’ll get there,” Yiannopoulos told Voris at the time.

It seems that he has now arrived “there.”

Pope's Visit to Iraqi Ziggurat to Bring Together Several Faiths - and Hopefully Lure More Visitors

Pope Francis is due to hold an inter-religious prayer service at the ancient Mesopotamian site of Ur when he visits Iraq next week - an event local archeologists hope will draw renewed attention to the place revered as the birthplace of Abraham.

Popular with Western visitors in the 1970s and 1980s, Ur is scarcely visited today after decades of war and political instability shattered Iraq's international tourism industry. The coronavirus crisis now also keeps local tourists away.

Located about 300 km (200 miles) south of the capital Baghdad, the site comprises a pyramid-style Ziggurat and an adjacent residential complex as well as temples and palaces.

It was excavated about 100 years ago by Leonard Woolley, a Briton who recovered treasures rivalling those found in Tutankhamen's tomb in Egypt. But little work has since been done

Supreme Court Slaps Down California County's Ban On Indoor Church Services

The US Supreme Court on Friday invalidated a California county's ban on indoor religious services, ruling that Santa Clara County must allow five churches to hold indoor services, according to Mercury News.

The ruling, which comes less than three weeks after the country ordered places of worship to remain shut in defiance of a previous US Supreme Court ruling allowing indoor religious services at 25% capacity, stems from a November lawsuit brought against Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), the county, and County Health Officer Sara Cody.

Catholic League: Pro-Trans ‘Equality Act’ the ‘Most Comprehensive Assault on Christianity Ever Written into Law’

Catholic League president Bill Donohue warned Monday that the Equality Act would “promote the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law.”

While its proponents insist that the Equality Act is about “ending discrimination,” it would in fact fundamentally alter the legal definition of sex to include sexual orientation and gender identity, Dr. Donohue argues.

The Act would also undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by conferring special status on gay rights, prioritizing them over religious freedom and conscience rights, he added.

The Equality Act would also require healthcare providers to provide “hormone therapies and surgical procedures that are required to change the physical characteristics associated with sex changes,” Donohue observes, without regard for the beliefs of healthcare workers.

Iraq's ancient Christian community, decimated by violence, fear

Some fled after the US-led invasion, others during sectarian bloodshed and more following jihadist attacks. Iraq's last two violent decades have hollowed out its Christian community which dates back two millennia.

After first settling in the fertile plains of Nineveh province before heading for the busy boulevards of Baghdad, more than one million Christians have in more modern times been uprooted by Iraq's consecutive conflicts.

"By the age of 24, I had already lived through and survived three wars," said Sally Fawzi, an Iraqi Chaldean Catholic, who left her country more than a decade ago and is now living in the US state of Texas.

China orders clergy to toe Communist Party and socialist line

New national rules requiring clergy to embrace the leadership of the Communist Party and China’s socialist system are expected to compound limits on religious freedom in the country, according to analysts.

The new rules – Measures for the Administration of Religious Personnel – were published by the State Administration for Religious Affairs early this month and will go into effect in May.

While the measures underlined many of the controls already in place under existing supervisory guidelines, their packaging as a national regulation gave them greater political force, one observer said.

Since 2015, President Xi Jinping has sought to bring religions such as Islam and Christianity under the party’s control through a process of “Sinicisation”, and stressed that religious adherents must reject foreign influence.

Vatican says employees who refuse Covid-19 vaccine could lose their jobs

The Vatican has effectively made Covid-19 vaccination mandatory for its employees, warning those who decline to receive the shot that they could face dismissal.

In a seven-page decree, Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, head of the commission governing Vatican City State, said that getting the jab was "the responsible choice" and that those who refuse to do so could risk termination. The guideline points to a 2011 law which stipulates that employees who refuse “preventive measures” could be disciplined.

What does it mean to be genetically Jewish?

When my parents sent their saliva away to a genetic testing company late last year and were informed via email a few weeks later that they are both “100% Ashkenazi Jewish”, it struck me as slightly odd. Most people I know who have done DNA tests received ancestry results that correspond to geographical areas – Chinese, British, West African. Jewish, by comparison, is typically parsed as a religious or cultural identity. I wondered how this was traceable in my parents’ DNA.

After arriving in eastern Europe around a millennium ago, the company’s website explained, Jewish communities remained segregated, by force and by custom, mixing only occasionally with local populations. Isolation slowly narrowed the gene pool, which now gives modern Jews of European descent, like my family, a set of identifiable genetic variations that set them apart from other European populations at a microscopic level.

'Western Elites Want a World Without Religion and History': Publisher Slams Repurposing of Churches

While religious venues all over the Netherlands are often being "recycled" into apartments and bars, some Dutch observers see outside pressure – namely the anti-religious strategy of Western elites as the key driver behind this process.

Dutch churches are in a deep crisis. According to public broadcaster RTL News, some of them are unable to afford maintenance costs. Others suffer from a lack of attention by parishioners. In addition, almost all religious venues in the Netherlands recently fell victim to COVID restrictions, resulting in staggeringly low attendance and smaller contributions.

As a result, many venues placed "For Sale" signs on their premises, with some rural Dutch churches going for as low as 35,000 euros.

Bahrain religious discrimination violates numerous international laws: Analyst

Bahraini regime’s brutal crackdown on dissent and its systematic abuse of the Shia population and discrimination against them violate numerous international laws, an American human rights expert and peace activist says.

Daniel Kovalik, who teaches international human rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in the state of Pennsylvania, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Monday.

“Since the 2011 uprising in Bahrain, the government has brutally cracked down on dissent and on the Shia population of the country. Human Rights groups have reported on numerous cases of Shia being subjected to wrongful detention and torture and of being fired from their jobs en masse. This type of religious discrimination violates numerous international law instruments and would not be tolerated by the West in other situations,” the academic said.

German Nuns Sold Orphaned Children to Sexual Predators: Report

A jarring report outlining decades of rampant child sex abuse at the hands of greedy nuns and perverted priests paints a troubling picture of systematic abuse in the German church.

The report is the byproduct of a lawsuit alleging that orphaned boys living in the boarding houses of the Order of the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer were sold or loaned for weeks at a time to predatory priests and businessmen in a sick rape trade. The men involved in the lawsuit say as boys they were denied being adopted out or sent to foster families because selling them for rape lined the sisters’ coffers for their “convent of horrors.” Some of the boys were then groomed to be sex slaves to perverts, the report claims.

BILL MAHER CLAIMS CHRISTIANITY IS TO BLAME FOR CAPITOL RIOT

During Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” host Bill Maher blamed Christianity for the Capitol riots last month.

Maher, 65, claimed that a belief in Christianity is comparable to a belief in conspiracies like QAnon, and he said this led in part to supporters of former President Donald Trump storming the Capitol last month.

“As long as we’re going to go to the trouble of another impeachment trial, we might as well be honest about what it’s really about: The events of Jan. 6 were a faith-based initiative,” he said.

Not stopping there, Maher alleged that Trump supporters who believe in a “Christian nationalist movement” are firm in their beliefs that God “literally sent [Trump] from heaven to save them.” He cited comments made by Alabama Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville, who once said that God personally chose Trump for president of the United States of America.

Denmark May Soon Force Churches to Submit Their Sermons to Government

Christian leaders in Denmark say religious liberty and the freedoms of speech and expression have come under fire after a proposed law would require leaders of all faiths to translate their sermons into Danish and submit them to the government.

La Croix International reports the new measure is primarily aimed at radical Islamic groups, but it will also affect churches. It is scheduled to be reviewed this month at the Folketing, the Danish Parliament. The country has more a population of more than 270,000 Muslims, and most of the sermons in the mosques are preached in Arabic.

The government of Denmark has said the law is necessary to curb the growth of Islamic extremism. CBN News sources explain the measure is aimed at getting the preaching of jihad out of mosques, but because Europe is so politically correct they won’t just pinpoint mosques. They’re including churches and casting a broad, politically correct net.

The 200-plus dioceses, and the churches and schools the Catholic Church operates under their names pulled down over $3 billion in taxpayer-funded aid from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), as part of the US coronavirus bailout of small businesses, according to an Associated Press (AP) investigative report published on Thursday.

750 killed at Ethiopian Orthodox church said to contain Ark of the Covenant: report

Around 750 people were killed in an attack on an Orthodox church, which is said to contain the Ark of the Covenant described in the Book of Exodus in the Bible, in northern Ethiopia’s war-torn Tigray region — home to thousands of churches and monasteries — according to reports.

Hundreds of people hiding in Maryam Tsiyon Church in Aksum amid an armed conflict were brought out and shot to death, and local residents believe the aim was to take the Ark of Covenant to Addis Ababa, the Belgium-based nonprofit European External Programme with Africa reported in this month’s situational report, released on Jan. 9.

“The number of people killed is reported as 750,” it said. The church, the most ancient and sacred of Ethiopian Christianity and also known as the Church of St. Mary of Zion, belongs to the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church.

Churches Protest Danish Law Requiring Vetting of Sermons

A number of Christian churches active in Denmark are protesting proposed legislation that would require translated copies of foreign-language sermons to be submitted to government authorities for review.

The government has said the aim of the law is to “enlarge the transparency of religious events and sermons in Denmark, when these are given in a language other than Danish.”

According to Bitter Winter, the new law represents an effort to forestall possible terrorist activity by radical Islamists, but would aversely affect all religious bodies equally, including those that pose little risk of violence.

Leaders of major Christian churches have complained that the legislation would have disastrous effects on religious liberty as well as freedom of speech.

Bible's David and Goliath story rewritten after ‘mistake’ found: ‘Everything was wrong'

The biblical account is told as a lesson of courage, faith, and overcoming what seems impossible, after David – a young shepherd armed only with a sling – beats Goliath, the mighty warrior. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of five New York Times bestsellers, believes this story has been completely misunderstood. Mr Gladwell detailed evidence from the religious text that suggested David was a far-more skilled warrior, and Goliath was the real underdog.

Speaking at a TedTalk, he said: “The Philistines, who are the biggest of enemies of the Kingdom of Israel, are living in the coastal plain. They're originally from Crete.

'Government becomes God': Jacobin's satirical cover literally idolizing Biden strikes nerve

The issue of Jacobin magazine covering the inauguration features a mock icon, complete with a halo around Biden's head, seraphim-like Clintons and angelic killer drones in the sky. Some don't seem to realize it is satire.

The cover for the winter edition of Jacobin, which was previewed hours after Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th US president, mercilessly mocks the US' habit of treating its politicians like celebrities. Taking the next logical step, it reimagines the new president as a messiah, borrowing imagery from traditional Christian iconography.

Vatican Calls for ‘Unprecedented Collective Response’ to Climate Change

The Vatican has called for a “responsible, unprecedented collective response” to the “momentous challenge” of climate change.

Speaking on behalf of Pope Francis, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin said in an online address Monday to the Climate Adaptation Summit taking place in the Netherlands that climate change “represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.”

“The scientific data at our disposal clearly show the urgent need for swift action,” Cardinal Parolin said. “The transition to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a problem not only of the domain of technology, but also a question of consumption patterns, education, and lifestyles.”

The cardinal said that Pope Francis wished to assure participants in the Climate Adaptation Summit “of his closeness, support and encouragement in these days of intense effort.”

IED Explosion Reported at Los Angeles Church That Was Recently Criticized for ‘Anti-LGBT’ Language by Southern Poverty Law Center

The El Monte Police Department and FBI officials are investigating an explosion and vandalism at a Los Angeles church that was recently criticized for “anti-LGBT language.”

The First Works Baptist Church is part of a network of churches that have been criticized by the far-left extremists at the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Police Chief David Reynoso said the incident took place overnight on Saturday and that they believe the explosion was from an “improvised explosive device.”

Obscenities and the words “get out” were also found spray-painted on the front of the church.

In 1917 Rudolf Steiner Foresaw A Vaccine That Would ‘Drive All Inclination Toward Spirituality Out Of People’s Souls’ — Scientist Claimed To Have Done This 16 Years Ago

If you’ve felt at all like you’re in a spiritual war right now, you’re not alone.

Many of the world’s greatest scholars, philosophers and ascetics understood the world to be multi-dimensional and co-inhabited by non-physical beings both good and evil, always at war with us and each other.

In 1917 Rudolf Steiner Foresaw A Vaccine That Would 'drive All Inclination Toward Spirituality Out Of People’s Souls'
It’s not something that can be rightly explained with language or science. One must cultivate such sensitivity that the existence of spiritual beings can be directly experienced.

Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian philosopher, educator, and spiritualist, and over the course of his life he published numerous books and papers on the science of spirituality. He viewed the human body as a spiritual vessel, open to occupation by other entities.

In a first for Spain, Jesuits admit to decades of sex abuse

MADRID -- The first comprehensive internal inquiry on sex abuse allegations by a religious order in Spain has identified 81 children and 37 adult victims by 96 Jesuits since the late 1920s, a much higher number than the cases that had so far been publicly known.

Associations of victims are welcoming the disclosure, but they see it falling short since the names of perpetrators or those who covered up the abuses weren't disclosed. They also want the Jesuits' inquiry to lead to proper criminal cases against the few abusers that are still alive and a detailed plan to compensate their victims.

Hailing from the 12th century, the Spånga Church is one of the oldest in Stockholm. It is located on the outskirts of Tensta and is flanked by Rinkeby, designated as "vulnerable" by the authorities and characterised by violent crime and Muslim extremism.

The Spånga Church in the immigrant-heavy Stockholm suburb of Tensta has been firebombed, as three Molotov cocktails were thrown at the church, the newspaper Dagen reported.

One firebomb was hurled at the church gate and the other two at the windows, which were smashed.

Satanists herald ‘important win for religious freedoms’ as pentagram joins recognized faith symbols in Aussie hospital

A storm of controversy is brewing in Australia after lobbying from Satanists got the pentagram listed as a symbol of faith alongside emblems of the world’s major religions.

Satanists in Queensland are toasting a “small but important win for religious freedom” after the Sunshine Coast University Hospital added Satanism to the list of recognized religions in its multi-faith center.

The pentagram is now displayed alongside a host of religious symbols including the Christian cross, Islam’s Star and Crescent, Hindu’s Om and Buddhism’s dharma wheel.

Tandav: Amazon drama apologises for Hindu offence

The cast and crew of Amazon Prime show Tandav have apologised after the political drama was accused of being insensitive to Hindus.

Some Hindu politicians called for the show to be removed and complaints have been filed to the police.

One member of the ruling BJP party claimed it was "deliberately mocking Hindu gods".

The show stars Bollywood A-lister Saif Ali Khan and is loosely based on hit show House of Cards.

One of the criticised scenes shows a university play in which Hindu god Shiva talks about "azadi" (freedom), which is a controversial term in India.

"Tandav is a work of fiction and any resemblance to acts and persons and events is purely coincidental," the show's director, Ali Abbas Zafar, wrote in a statement posted on Instagram and Twitter on Monday.

"The cast and crew of Tandav... unconditionally apologise if it has unintentionally hurt anybody's sentiments," he added.

Blasting Bill Gates and claiming Covid vaccine contains Satanic microchips gets Mexican cardinal censored by Facebook

A Mexican cardinal has been censored by Facebook after claiming that the Covid-19 pandemic is part of a “new world order plot” and saying vaccines against the disease contain satanic microchips.

Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez claimed in a video on the social media platform that vaccines to combat the spread of the coronavirus contain “the mark of the beast.”

In a video titled ‘Plot of a new world order’, which was released on January 12, the 87-year-old claimed that the pandemic will continue for several more years.

“This pandemic won't end in a month or two months, perhaps not this year, perhaps not in three, four, five, six years. That's what these men want,” he said.

‘Software error’ blamed for huge discrepancy in Vatican money transfers to Australia

The Holy See Press Office released a statement on Wednesday clarifying recent reports documenting that over $1.7 billion (AUS $2.3 billion) had been sent from official Vatican financial bodies to Australian accounts. The Holy See claims that the shocking number was actually the result of a “software error,” and that the value of the transfers did not exceed $7.4 million.

Last month, LifeSiteNews reported on the news that the Vatican had sent $1.7 billion to accounts in Australia between 2014 and 2020, based on a statement from Australia’s financial watchdog, AUSTRAC. The money was reported to have been sent between the two nations in over 40,000 transactions. Curiously, the yearly transfer value peaked in 2017, when Cardinal George Pell left his position as prefect for the Secretariat for the Economy to face trial in his native Australia on historical child sex abuse charges.

Vatican Claims No Knowledge Of $1.8BN Quietly Transferred To Australia: "We Don’t Have That Kind Of Money"

When Pope Benedict in 2013 took the almost unprecedented action of stepping down from the papacy (given that all or most popes throughout history have served till death), rumors swirled that it was due to extreme irregularities and corruption within the Vatican's notoriously opaque finances. Ostensibly his stepping aside which paved the way for Pope Francis was due to declining health in old age, but speculation has persisted since that it was actually his inability to clean up the mess, or the fact that he was at the helm as scandals persisted.

Since then, further scandals and irregularities at the Vatican Bank have continued to emerge, with the latest in the past weeks being the "disappearance" of a whopping $1.8 billion. Mysterious transfers which eventually totaled to that amount were flagged coming into Australia over the past six years.

Reeling Under Financial Scandals And Embezzlement By Top Cardinals, Pope Announces Reforms On Managing Vatican Finances

Pope Francis has formally stripped the Vatican secretariat of state of its financial assets and real estate holdings following a financial scandal which is currently the subject of a corruption investigation, ABC News reported.

The Pope signed a new law over the weekend ordering the secretariat of state to complete the transfer of all its financial holdings to APSA, the Vatican’s existing centralised asset manager.

Under the new law, the Peter’s Pence collections from the faithful as well as other donations that had been managed by the secretariat of state will now be held and managed by the Vatican’s treasury office as separate funds that are accounted for in the Holy See’s consolidated budget.

President Trump: Justice Cannot Prevail ‘Without the Grace of God’

President Trump issued a powerful proclamation on religious liberty Tuesday to commemorate the 850th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket.

“A society without religion cannot prosper. A nation without faith cannot endure — because justice, goodness, and peace cannot prevail without the grace of God,” the president declared in his proclamation, while calling the English saint a “lion of religious liberty.”

“Thomas Becket’s death serves as a powerful and timeless reminder to every American that our freedom from religious persecution is not a mere luxury or accident of history, but rather an essential element of our liberty,” Mr. Trump stated. “It is our priceless treasure and inheritance. And it was bought with the blood of martyrs.”

'Commie Red' Pope Francis Joins CDC and the WHO in Pushing Deadly COVID Vaccinations...

Pope Francis is again pushing far-left and elite causes. He now wants all countries to ensure everyone takes the COVID vaccination.

Pope Francis made a Christmas Day admonition for world leaders to " promote cooperation and not competition " in the race to stop the so-called pandemic, imploring that the most vulnerable be first to get vaccines.

" We can't let closed nationalisms impede us from living as the true human family that we are ," Francis said Friday in a speech from the Vatican just hours after he celebrated Christmas Eve Mass that was sparsely attended because of COVID restrictions across Europe.

The goal, he said, is " vaccines for everybody, especially for the most vulnerable and needy ."

The Pope joins the World Health Organization which is pushing the vaccination on the world as well:

‘No doubt’ Pope will resign after Christmas as Francis vowed to ‘follow Benedict’

The 83-year-old became head of the Catholic Church following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI – a controversial move and the first of its kind in more than 500 years. However, a source close to Pope Francis claimed he would only serve for seven years, stating he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor. Austen Ivereigh is the former Director for Public Affairs of the previous Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor and continues to work closely with the Vatican.

Vatican says use of Covid-19 vaccines made from fetal tissue aborted in the 1960s is ethical

The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) said in a statement released on Monday that it was ethical for Roman Catholics to use coronavirus vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses.

In the document approved by Pope Francis on 17 December, the doctrinal congregation said that all vaccinations recognized as clinically safe and effective can be used, “with the certain knowledge that the use of such vaccines does not constitute formal cooperation with the abortion.”

The Catholic Church approves the use of vaccines produced with cell lines derived from two fetuses aborted in the 1960s, Vatican News said.

It is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process.

Priest who authored UK Catholic sex education book convicted as pedophile

Father Joseph Quigley of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, England was convicted this week of sexual activity with a child, sexual assault, false imprisonment (he liked to lock children in a crypt) and cruelty. One case against him dated from the 1990s, another concerned his actions between 2006 and 2008.

The Archdiocese, headed until 2009 by Vincent Nichols, now the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, and since then by Archbishop Bernard Longley, failed to report Quigley to the police when they learned of one set of his crimes in 2008. Instead, they flew him to the United States for “rehabilitation” in a specialist clinic and subsequently allowed him to return to work in the U.K.

After that, he was supposedly under “restrictions,” but managed somehow to celebrate Mass at a school in 2009, and he was commissioned by the Archdiocese to carry out a school inspection in 2011.

The Occult Symbolism of the Vatican’s 2020 Nativity Scene

And, once the red drape covering the scene was removed, the crowd discovered a towering, brutalist, and totem-like Angel Gabriel staring back at them, along with an astronaut and a masked executioner (yes, those guys who kill people who are sentenced to death).

Let’s say that the applause following the unveiling was “polite”. Here are some pictures of the Nativity scene.

'Meth Addict's Garage Sale': New Nativity Scene in the Vatican Gets Savaged Online

The scene's design led at least one social media user to wonder aloud whether the Pope is actually "just trolling Christianity".

A new nativity scene that has recently been unveiled at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican has attracted quite a lot of attention online already, but perhaps not of the kind its creators were hoping for.

As Reuters points out, the Vatican uses a different nativity scene each year, usually donated by towns or artists, with some of the previous scenes featuring elements such as "a broken boat representing the plight of refugees and a person visiting an inmate in a jail cell, symbolising charity".

Colorado, New Jersey worshipers win US Supreme Court fight over Covid-19 shutdowns as lower courts ordered to re-examine rules

The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado church and a New Jersey priest and rabbi who challenged state shutdowns of religious services, ordering lower courts to re-examine government Covid-19 restrictions.

Tuesday's ruling threw out lower federal-court rulings upholding state orders that had shut down religious gatherings in the states. Lower courts were ordered to re-examine restrictions on indoor religious services ordered by Colorado Governor Jared Polis and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy in light of the high court's November 26 ruling that blocked New York from imposing Covid-19 capacity limits on houses of worship.

The latest victory for religious liberties also follows a December 3 decision in which the Supreme Court ruled against California Governor Gavin Newsom's restrictions on religious services.

The Nativity Scene sets the tone for 2021, it is all about the destruction of the society that we are supposed to leave behind (‘post-COVID’) and the introduction of the Death Cult’s “Great Reset” agenda.

The main theme is imposed by the statue that oversees the Nativity Scene, a djed pillar with a woman’s head on top of it.

What in God’s name? Pope Francis plans to ‘fix’ global capitalism – with the help of the Rothschilds, Rockerfellers and Mastercard

The Vatican has said it will partner with Fortune 500 companies to address various economic grievances, including inequality and environmental degradation. But is it really incumbent upon the Bishop of Rome to virtue-signal?
Anyone entertaining hopes that planet Earth might escape the insanity of 2020 without any more mind-blowing stories may wish to fasten their seatbelts for a hard landing.

At a time when a global pandemic has swept away millions of jobs, and transformed a handful of global capitalists from ‘merely wealthy’ to fantastically wealthy overnight, Pope Francis has decided to take sides in this epic battle. Any hunches what side that might be? Hint: much like the Vatican, it is immensely wealthy, influential, and acts like a government unto itself.

Williams: Vatican Unveils Hideous Nativity Scene in Saint Peter’s Square

The Vatican uncovered its 2020 manger scene in Saint Peter’s Square Friday, leaving onlookers scattered, scandalized, and scornful.

Observers shoveled abuse upon the unfortunate spectacle, rivaling each other to come up with the most appropriate epithets to describe the appalling scene.

“Mummified Mary,” “Weeble Jesus” (after the ovate children’s toys launched by Hasbro in the 1970s), “Martians,” “toilet paper rolls,” and “astronauts” were some of the comparisons made to the cylindrical figures meant to represent the Holy Family, the Magi, and the shepherds at Bethlehem.

Others saw in one ominous figure the helmeted image of “the Mountain” from the Game of Thrones television series, while another conjured up memories of the Robot from Lost in Space:

GEORGE SOROS AND POPE FRANCIS: AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE

The election of a liberal Jesuit to the papacy thrilled Democrats in the United States, whose unholy alliance with the Catholic left goes back many decades. Barack Obama, one of the pope’s most prominent supporters, has long been a beneficiary of that alliance. The faculty at Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., ranked as one of the top donors to his campaign.

In a grim irony, Obama, whose presidency substantially eroded religious freedom in America, rose to power not in spite of the Catholic Church but because of it. The archdiocese of Chicago helped bankroll his radicalism in the 1980s. As he recounts in his memoirs, he began his work as a community organizer in the rectory rooms of Holy Rosary parish on Chicago’s South Side. The Alinskyite organization for which he worked — the Developing Communities Project — received tens of thousands of dollars from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
