Pope cites Teilhardian vision of the cosmos as a 'living host'
The first stirring of an 'evolutionary leap' in late Jesuit's official standing?
Jul. 28, 2009
By JOHN L. ALLEN JR.
Though few might have cast him in advance as a "green pope," Pope Benedict XVI has amassed a striking environmental record, from installing solar panels in the Vatican to calling for ecological conversion. Now the pontiff has also hinted at a possible new look at the undeclared patron saint of Catholic ecology, the late French Jesuit scientist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
Benedict's brief July 24 reference to Teilhard, praising his vision of the entire cosmos as a "living host," can be read on multiple levels -- as part of the pontiff's rapprochement with the Jesuits, or as a further instance of finding something positive to say about thinkers whose works have set off doctrinal alarms, as Benedict previously did with rebel Swiss theologian and former colleague Hans Küng
The potential implications for environmental theology, however, are likely to generate the greatest interest among Teilhard's fans and foes alike -- and more than a half-century after his death in 1955, the daring Jesuit still has plenty of both. Admirers trumpet Teilhard as a pioneer, harmonizing Christianity with the theory of evolution; critics charge that Teilhard's optimistic view of nature flirts with pantheism.
Benedict's comment came during a July 24 vespers service in the Cathedral of Aosta in northern Italy, where the pope took his annual summer vacation July 13-29.
Toward the end of a reflection upon the Letter to the Romans, in which St. Paul writes that the world itself will one day become a form of living worship, the pope said, "It's the great vision that later Teilhard de Chardin also had: At the end we will have a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host.
"Let's pray to the Lord that he help us be priests in this sense," the pope said, "to help in the transformation of the world in adoration of God, beginning with ourselves."
Though offered only in passing, and doubtless subject to overinterpretation, Benedict's line nevertheless triggered headlines in the Italian press about a possible "rehabilitation" of Teilhard, sometimes referred to as the "Catholic Darwin." That reading seemed especially tempting since, as a consummate theologian, Benedict is aware of the controversy that swirls around Teilhard, and would thus grasp the likely impact of a positive papal reference.
At the very least, the line seemed to offer a blessing for exploration of the late Jesuit's ideas. That impression appeared to be confirmed by the Vatican spokesperson, Jesuit Fr. Federico Lombardi, who said afterward, "By now, no one would dream of saying that [Teilhard] is a heterodox author who shouldn't be studied."
Teilhard's most prominent living disciple in Italy, lay theologian Vito Mancuso, told reporters that he was "pleasantly surprised" by Benedict's words and that they have "great importance."
Teilhard, who died in 1955 at the age of 73, was a French Jesuit who studied paleontology and participated in the 1920s-era discovery of "Peking Man" in China, a find that seemed to confirm a gradual development in the human species. Teilhard has also been linked to the 1912 discovery of "Piltdown Man" in England, later exposed as a hoax.
On the basis of his scientific work, Teilhard developed an evolutionary theology asserting that all creation is developing towards an "Omega Point," which he identified with Christ as the Logos, or "Word" of God. In that sense, Teilhard broadened the concept of salvation history to embrace not only individual persons and human culture, but the entire universe. In short order, Teilhard's thought became the obligatory point of departure for any Catholic treatment of the environment.
Yet from the beginning, Teilhard's theology was also viewed with caution by officials both of the Jesuit order and in the Vatican. Among other things, officials worried that his optimistic reading of nature compromised church teaching on original sin. In 1962 -- seven years after his death -- the Vatican's doctrinal office issued a warning that his works "abound in such ambiguities and indeed even serious errors, as to offend Catholic doctrine."
In 1981, on the 100th anniversary of Teilhard's birth, speculation erupted about a possible rehabilitation. It was fueled by a letter published in L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, by the then-Cardinal Secretary of State Agostino Casaroli, who praised the "astonishing resonance of his research, as well as the brilliance of his personality and richness of his thinking." Casaroli asserted that Teilhard had anticipated John Paul II's call to "be not afraid," embracing "culture, civilization and progress."
Responding to ferment created by the letter, the Vatican issued a statement insisting that its 1962 verdict on Teilhard still stands -- to date, Rome's last official pronouncement on Teilhard. (The statement was issued in July 1981, four months before then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future Pope Benedict XVI, took over as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.)
Across the years, Benedict has sometimes seemed to be of two minds himself.
In his 1968 work Introduction to Christianity, Ratzinger wrote that Eastern Christianity has a deeper appreciation for the "cosmic and metaphysical" dimension of Christianity than the West, but that the West seemed to be recovering that perspective, "especially as a result of stimuli from the work of Teilhard." He argued that Teilhard gave authentic expression to the Christology of St. Paul.
As pope, Benedict has occasionally used language that seems to reflect a Teilhardian touch. In his 2006 Easter homily, the pontiff referred to the theory of evolution, describing the Resurrection as "the greatest 'mutation,' absolutely the most crucial leap into a totally new dimension that there has ever been in the long history of life and its development."
Yet Ratzinger's ambivalence about Teilhard is of equally long vintage. In a commentary on the final session of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), a young Ratzinger complained that Gaudium et Spes, the "Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World," played down the reality of sin because of an overly "French," and specifically "Teilhardian," influence.
Overall, the impression is that Benedict finds much to like about Teilhard's cosmic vision, even if he also worries about interpretations at odds with orthodox faith.
Benedict's July 24 remark on Teilhard builds upon the pope's strong record on the environment, considered by many observers to be the most original feature of his social teaching. Most recently, Benedict devoted a section of his new social encyclical, Caritas in Veritate, to a call for deepening what he called "that covenant between human beings and the environment, which should mirror the creative love of God."
In her recent book Ten Commandments for the Environment: Pope Benedict XVI Speaks Out for Creation and Justice, Catholic writer Woodeene Koenig-Bricker described Benedict as "the greenest pope in history," arguing that he has not only made strong environmental statements but also put them into practice.
In that light, one wonders if Benedict's shade of green could eventually allow Teilhard to be named the patron saint of Catholic ecology de jure, as well as de facto. If so, July 24 could be remembered as the first stirring of an "evolutionary leap" in the late Jesuit's reputation and official standing.

Man was accused of taking $10,000 in bribes from a government informant
JERSEY CITY, N.J. - A political consultant who was one of 44 people arrested last week in New Jersey's massive political corruption scandal has been found dead in his apartment.
Hudson County prosecutor Edward DeFazio says a relative found the body of 61-year-old Jack Shaw in Jersey City and called police Tuesday evening.
Federal prosecutors had accused Shaw of taking $10,000 in bribes from a government informant and proposing the cooperating witness make a $10,000 campaign contribution to an unnamed Jersey City official.
DeFazio told The Jersey Journal newspaper of Jersey City the death doesn't appear to be a homicide. He says an autopsy will determine the cause of death.
sure - I bet he was shot five times in the head and twice in the gut and it will be determined to be a suicide or a natural death - ;)
...A recent study by French scientist Thierry Castex has revealed that on the shroud are traces of words in Aramaic spelled with Hebrew letters.
A Vatican researcher, Barbara Frale, told Vatican Radio on July 26 that her own studies suggest the letters on the shroud were written more than 1,800 years ago.
She said that in 1978 a Latin professor in Milan noticed Aramaic writing on the shroud and in 1989 scholars discovered Hebrew characters that probably were portions of the phrase "The king of the Jews."...
This along with the fact that the shroud is a photographic negative - something that did not exist before the 19th century, the fact that their is pollen found on the shroud from a thorn bush that only grows in the middle east and from several other flowering plants that grow only in the middle east, the fact that there is human blood on the shroud that is the same type as found in all the tested Eucharist Miracles around the world, etc... is pretty strong evidence that this is indeed the burial cloth of our Lord and Savior!
I watched these the other night and they are absolutely convincing!

A new Holocaust research center designed to build on the work of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal was in jeopardy on Tuesday because of a row between researchers and a Jewish group over access to archives.
The institute would be a research outpost of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights organization which helped to track down Nazi war criminals. It was intended to provide research and documentation of anti-Semitism, racism and the Holocaust.
But project researcher Anton Pelinka said the group representing Vienna's Jewish community (IKG) had blocked access to the community archive for months despite having initially given the go-ahead.
Someone does NOT want to allow too close a look at Wiesenthal's papers!
'FBI sting was a case of anti-Semitism'
"There is a feeling here that the FBI purposely attempted to arrest as many rabbis as possible at once in an attempt to humiliate them," Kakun said in a telephone interview Sunday.
"Regardless of the details of the case - I am not familiar with the precise charges and the evidence - you would never see the FBI and police behaving that way with Muslim sheikhs or Christian priests. It is so obvious that the whole thing is motivated by anti-Semitism," he said...
These satanic Jews are unbelievable! Yea - why should the FBI investigate money laundering, government corrpution, illegal organ sales, etc... - that is awefully anti-semitic of them!
And then to claim that the US government wouldn't do this to Muslims and Priests - COME ON!

Romania probes Israeli adoption agency link in organ trafficking

A New York dietary-supplement company allegedly tricked Pfizer pharmaceuticals into buying an ingredient that wasn't kosher, a lawsuit charges.
Okay, so Pfizer feels it is morally okay to use Nigerian children as human guinea pigs for unlicensed non-consensual tests of drugs, but will go to court because a supplier's grade seed extract wasn't actually blessed by a Rabbi?
Ala. police: Taser use on disabled man justified
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
Officers who used pepper spray and a Taser to remove a man from a store bathroom found out only later he was deaf and mentally disabled and didn't understand they wanted him to open the door, police said Tuesday.
A spokesman for the Mobile Police Department said the officers' actions were justified because the man was armed with a potential weapon — an umbrella.
It's not enough that they taser elementary school students, pregnant women, and bound suspects, ya just can't forget to taser the disabled too!
Neil Armstrong's veiled admission of a lunar hoax?
On the 25th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong makes a very cryptic statement. He says that you can make great discoveries if you “remove one of truth’s protective layers.” In other words, you can make incredible discoveries if you remove the truth (i.e., lie or create a hoax).

Rabbi Israel Dwek, the spiritual leader of the Sephardic Jewish community in the wealthy Monmouth County suburb of Deal, took to his pulpit on Saturday to cite the Talmudic Law of Moser that prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew. Rabbi Dwek then renounced his son, Solomon Dwek, the failed real estate developer whose 2006 indictment on bank fraud charges motivated him to cooperate with federal prosecutors in a sting operation that led to the arrests of 44 individuals on Thursday. The group included three mayors, two state legislators, a multitude of local officials, and several Rabbis. As explained to PolitickerNJ.com, Rabbi Dwek will sit Shiva for Solomon Dwek, observing the Jewish custom of mourning for an immediate family member who has died.
This clearly demonstrates the disgusting racism of Jews and also the reason why gentiles should rightly view Jews with great suspicion and the real reason for so-called "anti-semitism". Anti-semitism is a DEFENSIVE measure against a group of racists hell bent on world domination and making gentiles their slaves under foot!
This same excuse of not turning in a fellow Jew is the reason that Jack the Ripper was never arrested and was allowed to kill as many as he did. You see, a jewish man was an eyewitness to one of the first murders and identified the killer - but when he found out that the killer - Kosinski was a jew - he refused to testify against a fellow jew! http://www.casebook.org/witnesses/schwartz.html
Hungary’s lawmakers rejected constitutional amendments to make Holocaust denial a punishable offense.
Some local Jewish community leaders believe that Monday's vote secured the first parliamentary victory for Jobbik, a rapidly rising local neo-Nazi movement widely predicted to win several seats in the national elections due within a year.
The proposals, put forth by the ruling Socialist caretaker government, attracted fewer than half the votes needed to adopt a constitutional amendment...
Finally a government that is willing at least to some extent to stand up to these racist Jews!
The arrest of a Brooklyn man Thursday on organ trafficking charges sheds a new spotlight on an underground business where wretchedly poor foreigners — particularly in India — are paid $2,000 to $10,000 for kidneys.
Those kidneys are ultimately sold for as much as $180,000 to transplant recipients who otherwise could die.
More than 80,000 Americans were waiting for kidney transplants as of last week, the United Network for Organ Sharing said.
The wait for a suitable legitimate donor is as long as three years, which drives many to the underground market, experts said.
Lungs for transplant are also available on the black market, but the vast majority of the organs in play are kidneys, they said...
The rich buy and sell pieces of the poor like so much meat.
"Soylent Green is made out of people!" Michael Rivero
Several years ago I was speaking with Bishop Louis Vezelis about the morality of all this organ "harvesting" and donation and he used the word "cannibalism" to describe it. I had never heard that term used to describe this practice, but it certainly fits and the wisdom of our Bishop is showing forth once again.
God only knows how many of these people have in reality been murdered or had their organs stolen against their will!
Highway Sign Has Every Word Misspelled But "Exit"
Saturday, July 25, 2009
You may do a double-take the next time you drive south past the Business 51 exit in Rothschild. A road sign that was put up within the last week has every word misspelled, except the word 'exit'.
Misspelled words include, ‘Buisness’, ‘Rothschield’, and ‘Schofeild’.
David Vieth, Director of the Bureau of Highway Operations for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, says Decker Supply Company out of Madison was contracted to make the sign.
He says Decker will pay to have the sign fixed in the next few days.
“We may have one or two spelling mistakes in a year”, Vieth said. “Three would be pretty unusual”. He says the DOT’s file that includes the spelling for the sign was correct, so the mistake was likely made by Decker.
“We all make mistakes”, Vieth said. “But for most of us, they’re not put up for all the public to see.”
And the public is speaking out about the sign. In fact, many in the Rothschild and Schofield communities can not believe how many mistakes the company made on the sign.
"It's funny because the Department of Transportation actually administers a program for these preliminary breath tests we use for alcohol and maybe they could give one to the company and have them check out some of their employees when they come in in the morning,” Everest Metro Police Chief Wally Sparks joked.
Although Decker Supply Company made the sign, Vieth says Arbor Green, Inc. out of Portage, Wisconsin put up the sign.
Christian supporters of Israel who gathered in Washington last week did not just sit through policy briefings and lobbying sessions; they danced the hora, blew a shofar, sang Hatikva and celebrated all that they love about Israel.
Whether repeatedly standing up to cheer for speakers or dancing to Israeli tunes, the over 4,000 animated attendees of the fourth annual Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Washington conference made their passion for the State of Israel absolutely clear.
For two days, the participants learned about Israel, its history, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, how to effectively defend Israel, what America's government should do, how to deal with Iran and how to lobby elected officials. On Wednesday participants met with their elected officials in Congress to voice their support for Israel...
These fools are anything but Christian!

One of the locations used by the Dignitas suicide facility in Switzerland.
Wednesday, 22 July 2009
A former employee of Swiss suicide facility Dignitas has spoken out after the recent double suicide of British couple Sir Edward and Lady Joan Downes.
In reality the Dignitas ‘clinic’ is “just one person who has found a way to make a lot of money out of death and the fear of it”, nurse Soraya Wernli told The Sunday Times this weekend.
“There is nothing dignified or uplifting about it”, added Mrs Wernli, whose two and half years at the facility left her concerned that people were committing suicide because they were depressed or felt burdensome.
Earlier this month Sir Edward and Lady Joan Downes became the latest Britons to commit suicide at the facility.
Lady Joan, 74, had been suffering from terminal cancer. Her 85-year-old husband Sir Edward had been losing his sight and hearing, but was not terminally ill.
This is not the first time Dignitas has assisted with double suicides where one person is not terminally ill. Mrs Wernli believes the practice should not be permitted because the healthy partner could be coerced into dying.
She told the paper how Ludwig Minelli, the founder of Dignitas, would authorise double suicides behind her back and use other employees to carry them out because of her objections.
She described how she once convinced a depressed young man on the brink of committing suicide to change his mind.
“Minelli was cross with me for interfering”, she said.
“He made the boy pay €200 for the prescription. He was punished for wanting to live.”
Swiss law is meant to slow the process of assisted suicide by requiring two doctor interviews.
But Mrs Wernli says: “People often are dead just four hours after arriving at the airport. It’s like a conveyer belt.”
In January 2008 Daniel Gall accompanied his terminally ill sister and healthy brother-in-law to a Dignitas facility.
Dignitas “was a sinister place with bare walls and shabby furniture, without even the comfort of a hospital room”, Mr Gall writes of his experience in a new book.
Mr Gall described one employee as “a whisky-swilling former goatherd” and another as “a grumpy former schoolteacher who sat smoking one cigarette after another.”
Mr Gall said he felt sickened when his sister’s ashes turned up in the post after three weeks.
The Sunday Times reports that the “remains of hundreds of other customers were unceremoniously dumped in Lake Zurich, prompting an official warning from sanitation officials”.
Mrs Wernli notes that Dignitas often has to change locations as neighbours frequently complain about the ambulances and body bags. Dignitas has also assisted with suicides in camper vans and cars.
Several of the 115 Britons who have so far committed suicide at the Dignitas facility were suffering from “treatable” conditions, it was revealed last month.
A bid to weaken the UK law on assisted suicide was recently voted down in the House of Lords. Peers voted 194 to 141 against Lord Falconer’s amendment which sought to make it legal to help someone travel overseas to commit suicide. Lord Falconer referred to the Dignitas facility during debates on the issue.
Last month the Swiss Parliament considered changing the law on assisted suicide. The proposal will tighten restrictions on who could access assisted suicide, and plans to outlaw the practice altogether will also be considered.
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Her Doctrine and Morals
St. Anne, Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary
26 July 2009
Today we celebrate the feast of St. Anne.
How truly blessed would any man be to have such a wife, but the lesson here is not just for wives but for all of us. We are members of the Church — the Bride of Christ. We are His spouse, and therefore these words aptly apply to us. The saints are of tremendous value in the eyes of God even when they are despised by the rest of men. The value of the saints comes very clearly from their unceasing and untiring love and service of God.
Let us look then to St. Anne this most valiant woman and see how she labored for God. Let us ask her assistance for us who must now labor in this valley of tears so that we may merit a similar reward which she now enjoys with her Grandson, Jesus Christ, in Heaven.
It is not enough for us to love God once in a while, or when we think of it. The love of Him should be the overriding motivation for all that we do. The valiant woman constantly labors for the love of her husband, so must we constantly labor for the love of God. We must never be idle. We must do all that we can physically, and then above and beyond this our thoughts and desires should be studying and planning how we can do more and therefore be more productive for the One who we love.
God should have no need of "spoils". He should never be reduced to having to search out the leftover love of men. He should be the first love, the greatest love, the only love of men; and even more so the only love of the members of His Church.
We should also note that this valiant woman was not selfish or miserly with all that she had or produced. She was most generous to all those who were in need. Because of her industry she not only was able to provide for her husband, children and domestics, but also for the many needy that she met during her life.
When our labors are performed out of love for God they are generally over abundantly productive. This surplus above and beyond what we ourselves or those who depend upon us need is given to us by God, so that we may become His instruments of mercy as we distribute these to those who have need of them. We would do well to remember that everything belongs to God and that we are only the administrators of His goods. While He places many things in our hands, He also watches to see what we do with them. He wants to see if we are unprofitable servants, or if we will attribute these things to ourselves rather than to Him. He wants to see if we will assist our fellow men out of love for Him. If we will give food, water, shelter, clothing, etc. to the least of our brothers, for the love of Him.
"O God, Who didst vouchsafe to endow Blessed Saint Anne with grace that she was found worthy to be the mother of her who brought forth Thine only-begotten Son, grant in Thy grace, that we who devoutly honor her memory, may through her prayers attain everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
Magnetic forces to blame for 9/11 tower collapse
by Steve Connor
Scientists can finally explain why the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, despite the temperature of the fires being well below the 1,500C melting point of the steel girders holding up the buildings.
The discovery that unusual magnetic forces within the girders made them weak at temperatures of about 500C explains away the conspiracy theories that have spread like wildfire since the disaster.
The American Jewish Committee in Berlin filed a complaint Fridayasking prosecutors to investigate Amazon.de to see if it has broken German laws against Holocaust denial by selling far-right books.
NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO READ ANYTHING WE DO NOT APPROVE OF!!!!!!!!!
Guy Walters -- The Sunday Times (Britain) Since the early 1960s Simon Wiesenthal’s name has become synonymous with Nazi hunting. His standing is that of a secular saint … His reputation is built on sand, however. He was a liar — and a bad one at that. From the end of the second world war to the end of his life in 2005, he would lie repeatedly about his supposed hunt for Eichmann as well as his other Nazi-hunting exploits. He would also concoct outrageous stories about his war years and make false claims about his academic career. There are so many inconsistencies between his three main memoirs and between those memoirs and contemporaneous documents, that it is impossible to establish a reliable narrative from them. Wiesenthal’s scant regard for the truth makes it possible to doubt everything he ever wrote or said.

The NVAC  draft report recommends further study of the potential for vaccines to contribute to autism in children who have underlying mitochondrial disease, a worthwhile study given the clinical history of such children developing autism after vaccinations (see  Poling case). What the NVAC has overlooked, however, in their recommendations, is that epidemic regressive autism is associated with the switch from using animal cells to produce vaccines to the use of aborted human fetal cells for vaccine production. Now when we vaccinate our children, some vaccines also deliver contaminating aborted human fetal DNA. The safety of this has never been tested.
Up to his death Cronkite served as honorary chairman of the Interfaith Alliance, an organization dedicated to countering the influence of conservative Christianity on federal politics. In 2007, the Alliance initiated a campaign to force Christianity out of the public sphere by promoting policies that would silence the Christian voice. They recommended that research and health policies should not be based on "religious doctrine" and that faith-based schools should be banned, among other things.
Cronkite was outspoken in his support of abortion and "gay" marriage. In 2003-2004, Cronkite published in 180 newspapers throughout the United States, entitled "Marriage and Abortion," in which he expressed the liberalist line: "This columnist believes that among conservatives and liberals alike there is a majority who would put the sanctity of individual rights even above the sanctity with which some would endow the banning of abortion and gay marriage."
Suspects include rabbis, mayors; probe involved black-market kidneys
NEWARK, N.J. - An investigation into the sale of black-market kidneys and fake Gucci handbags evolved into a sweeping probe of political corruption in New Jersey, ensnaring more than 40 people Thursday, including three mayors, two state lawmakers and several rabbis.
Even for a state with a rich history of graft, the scale of wrongdoing alleged was breathtaking. An FBI official called corruption "a cancer that is destroying the core values of this state."
Federal prosecutors said the investigation initially focused on a money laundering network that operated between Brooklyn, N.Y.; Deal, N.J.; and Israel. The network is alleged to have laundered tens of millions of dollars through Jewish charities controlled by rabbis in New York and New Jersey....
...Among the 44 people arrested were the mayors of Hoboken, Ridgefield and Secaucus, Jersey City's deputy mayor, and two state assemblymen. A member of the governor's cabinet resigned after agents searched his home, though he was not arrested. All but one of the officeholders are Democrats.
Also, five rabbis from New York and New Jersey — two of whom lead congregations in Deal — were accused of laundering millions of dollars, some of it from the sale of counterfeit goods and bankruptcy fraud, authorities said...
...Those arrested included Levy Izhak Rosenbaum of Brooklyn, who was charged with conspiring to arrange the sale of an Israeli citizen's kidney for $160,000 for a transplant for the informant's fictitious uncle. Rosenbaum was quoted as saying he had been arranging the sale of kidneys for 10 years...
There is sooooo much here - here is some food for thought...
It is highly unlikely that the organs came from Israeli citizens - it is much more likely to be one of these scenarios:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3046217.stm where Israeli's trick people into selling their organs
this article: http://www.unesco.org/courier/2001_07/uk/doss34.htm shows why it is extremely unlikely that any organs came from Israeli citizens (unless of course they are arab citizens).
Also note that they do not show a clear tie anywhere in this article between the two investigations - my guess is that in the course of trying to get politicians on something so that they would go along with some Zionist goal - a low level investigator came upon much of this and went wild with it - he/she will likely loose their job - if not their life or family members lives for exposing this one!

Israeli officials halt distribution of booklet alleging Vatican support for Hezbollah
Tel Aviv, Israel, Jul 20, 2009 / 10:15 pm (CNA).- Israeli officials have halted the distribution of a booklet published by an American Orthodox Jewish Group and given to Israeli Defense Forces soldiers. The move follows reports of the booklet’s claims that the Pope identified with Hezbollah and that the Vatican took Hezbollah officials on a tour of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
The booklet claims the Pope and some cardinals from the Vatican helped organize the tours to teach the Lebanon-based Islamic group how to wipe out Jews, Haaretz reports...
Don't ya just love it when these moronic novus ordo people get stabbed in the back by the satanists that they defend at all costs!
When the Emperor Julian the Apostate “asked the aged and blind bishop Maris of Chalcedon whether he thought that his Galilean God [Our Lord Jesus Christ] would heal him of his infirmity, the man of God replied: ‘I thank God for having permitted me to become blind, so that I do not have to look upon the face of an apostate.” (Laux, Church History, p. 102)

Exxon faces $1 billion fine for sabotaging Texas oil wells

HE COULD have raked in millions through endorsements and personal appearances. Courted by kings, praised by politicians, he could have signed book and film deals telling of his amazing story.
Instead, he became a virtual recluse who uses a fake name to receive his mail and refuses to talk about his incredible life.
This is Neil Armstrong, who first walked on the Moon and uttered one of the world's best-known phrases: "That's one small step for (a) man; one giant leap for mankind."
Armstrong returned 40 years ago this month from his Apollo 11 mission to a hero's welcome and offers to cash in on his fame.
But today, even among locals in the small town of Indian Hill, Ohio, few know him as the man who made history by taking the first steps on another world.
The 78-year-old leads a fiercely secretive existence.
Local hairdresser Marx Sizemore claimed he was warned not to bother Armstrong with questions when he became a customer.
"He's a very withdrawn individual. I cut his hair for five years and he never even mentioned that he was Neil Armstrong," he said.
"I knew who he was, though, because the salon owner had told me. I was warned that he doesn't like to talk about it.
"The only time we ever spoke about the Moon landing was when I asked him about it once. I had to initiate the conversation. I was born a week after he walked on the Moon so I told him that to see if he would start talking.
"But he barely reacted and just looked down."
"He was more interested in talking about golf. I think he's a private person who can't stand to be the centre of attention."...
Sounds to me like a man sick and tired of lying!

Michael Collins, the man who orbited the moon while Neil and Buzz had all the fun, isn't doing any interviews, apparently, for the 40th anniversary. But through NASA he's put out a Q&A with himself answering what he says are the biggest FAQs he gets...
Oddly enough another one who hides from interviews and questions?
Aldrin however seems to like publicity - but he also admits to depression and alcoholism:

U.S. District Judge Allows Case to Proceed against Dimond Brothers
The Daily Record of Rochester, New York, has reported that a U.S. federal lawsuit has been entered against Holy Family Monastery in Fillmore, New York, for fraud by a young man who turned over almost 1,400,000 U.S. dollars in cash and stocks to the monastery. Eric Hoyle joined the Most Holy Family Monastery to become a Benedictine monk under the guidance of Frederick Dimond. Hoyle claims that Dimond, known as Brother Michael, who operates the monastery with his brother, Robert Dimond, told him that he would have to turn over all his worldly possessions to the monastery. He did.
The Daily Record reported that after joining the group in September 2005, Hoyle transferred securities valued at 1,200,000 U.S. dollars and gave thousands to the monastery, according to his federal complaint. He also signed an agreement that he would receive $750,000 if he left. Hoyle did leave on December 31, 2007, and filed a federal lawsuit against the Dimond brothers to recover his donations. The amended civil complaint accuses the Dimonds of fraud, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, plus racketeering and several additional causes of action.
The Daily Record reports that the lawsuit will go forward in federal court, as the defendant Dimond brothers' attempt to dismiss the case was recently denied by U.S. District Judge John Curtin in Buffalo, New York, who also allowed plaintiff Hoyle to add several causes of action to his complaint, including a conspiracy claim under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). The judge upheld the racketeering claim, saying that plaintiff Hoyle alleged specific facts which, if true, would show that the defendants conspired to commit a crime by making false representations and by soliciting donations and postulants for several years. The judge also said that plaintiff Hoyle was entitled to pursue claims for unjust enrichment.

Her Doctrine and Morals
Seventh Sunday after Pentecost
19 July 2009
We must be cautious of the false religions that abound all around us. We can see that there are many false religions that come to us dressed in the clothing of the true Church but are in reality not the Church established by Christ. They are in reality a church established by the devils, which makes them the church of Satan. We can easily unmask these if we know the true doctrines of Christ, just as the shepherd can easily pull back the sheep's wool from the back of the wolf and expose the deceiver. The words of the same scriptures that these deceivers use become the tool to unmask them. For example: the Protestants' bible quotes Christ as saying "This is My Body . . . This is My Blood." Yet, these same deceivers deny that the Holy Eucharist is truly Jesus Christ. Or they easily divorce and remarry even though the Scriptures clearly say: "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder". The inherent contradictions in their doctrines show them for what they truly are: "ravenous wolves" seeking to destroy souls.
Lastly today's Gospel warns us against all those who preach using the name of God, saying "Lord, Lord" but will not enter into Heaven and obviously will not lead others to Heaven either. We see so much of the Eastern mysticism religions appealing to many who are looking for the answers that can only be found in the true Faith. The modern fads go from one fanaticism to the next in a relentless pursuit of finding the truth that will set us free and give us the happiness and satisfaction that we so long for. But, their cyclical fads never approach the true religion lest they be saved. The devils keep them going from one to the next wasting their time and energy in a fruitless search. They hear words of hope but they are nothing but vain and empty words that are devoid of any true power to convert, heal, or save.
Now, while we must always be cautious and wary of these hypocrites, we must become even more wary of the deceiver within us. There is an evil inclination in us to prefer the lie rather than the truth. "Lies spread like wildfire, while the truth crawls along." Our own passions are constantly at war with our reason and our faith. Our passions strive to force our intellect and will to follow rather than lead. And, when we succumb to this temptation we easily convince ourselves that that which pleases our passions is true rather than that which sensors them.
