Interesting. The Vatican is calling for a global financial system and a global public authority in response to the financial crisis. Perhaps they should read Revelation and Ezekiel a little more closely. Of course, since they put little stock in the Bible and rely on Papal infallibility for their traditions, that might not help at all. Will they be calling for a global religion next? Interesting times.
The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.
I wonder how Catholics feel about their supreme leader siding with the Occupy Wall Street crowd, which is also siding with the Communists and anarchists that have joined them? Next they’ll be nominating George Soros, the primary funder of the OWSies, to be the one global authority. Things are happening fast from a Biblical perspective.
Think I’m being a bit extreme in my interpretation of the Vatican’s comments? They’re also calling for a global “moral code”.
“The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said.
If it’s social, moral, and cultural coexistence they want, I guarantee the Muslim population isn’t going to go along, unless we’re all under Shariah Law. But, whatever it takes to have social and moral coexistence, right?
