Pope Francis Tells Chilean Man Who Was Raped By Catholic Priest That ‘It’s OK To Be Gay’ In Private Vatican Meeting

God loves gay people and it is fine to be homosexual, Pope Francis has reportedly said. The Pope made the remarks, which went significantly beyond his previous tolerance for homosexuality, during a meeting three weeks ago with a Chilean man who had been sexually abused by Catholic priests.

Pope Francis tells man who was sexually assaulted by Catholic priest that ‘God loves gay people and it is fine to be homosexual’ in closed-door meeting with Juan Carlos Cruz in the Vatican

EDITOR’S NOTE: Hoo boy, where oh where do I even start with this story? In the 1980’s in Chile, Juan Carlos Cruz was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted by his Catholic priest  the Rev. Fernando Karadima. Cruz was by far not the only victim of the pedophile priests at the parish of El Bosque in Santiago, and the assaults were covered up by Bishop Juan Barros, who witnessed it all. Flash-forward to 2015 when Cruz writes a letter to the pope, begging for help, and the pope does nothing. In fact, when asked about it on his trip to Chile back in February, Pope Francis denied ever receiving such a letter, and when an uproar resulted from the Chilean victims,  Francis was forced to confess that ‘grave errors’ were made by the Vatican. Hmm…but it amazingly doesn’t end there. Flash-forward to May 2018, and the Catholic priest rape victim who became homosexual after being raped, had a private meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican where Francis told him that ‘being gay is OK’, and that ‘God made you that way’. These are the words of a man who claims to be the ‘vicar of Christ‘, who believes he sits in the place of God on this Earth, according to the official Catholic catechism

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJB)

The Pope made the remarks, which went significantly beyond his previous tolerance for homosexuality, during a meeting three weeks ago with a Chilean man who had been sexually abused by Catholic priests.

Pope Francis offered a heartfelt apology to Juan Carlos Cruz, who was a victim of Chile’s most notorious abusive priest, Fernando Karadima.  Mr Cruz, who is gay, said the conversation moved on from the abuse crisis to the nature of homosexuality.

“He told me ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like that and he loves you like that and I do not care.

“The Pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are,’” Mr Cruz told El Pais, the Spanish newspaper.  The Pope’s words appeared to go further in terms of tolerance than remarks he made in 2013, when he said of homosexuals “Who am I to judge?”

Speaking to the Vatican press corps on his return to Rome from a trip to Brazil, he said gay people should not be marginalised but rather integrated into society. He was responding to questions about claims of an alleged “gay lobby” of clerics working in the heart of the Vatican.

“If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?” Pope Francis replied.

The Roman Catholic Church insists that while homosexual orientation is not sinful in itself, homosexual acts certainly are because they are “against natural law”. The Pope is not changing official Church teaching, but he is at least signalling a much more open and inclusive approach, which will upset many conservative Catholics.

The Vatican neither confirmed nor denied the comments that Francis reportedly made to Mr Cruz.

“This is not a shift in theological teaching or dogma,” said Robert Mickens, a Vatican expert and the editor of La Croix International, a Catholic publication.

“It was a pastoral response to an individual. The Pope always likes to deal with the individual.” The Pope elaborated on his ‘who am I to judge?’ comment in a recent book by an Italian expert on the Vatican.

Pope Francis accused the victims of the Chilean Catholic priests of ‘slander’ and refused to hear their complaints

The pontiff told him: “I was paraphrasing by heart the catechism of the Catholic Church where it says that these people should be treated with delicacy and not be marginalised.”

He added: “Let us not forget that God loves all his creatures and we are destined to receive his infinite love.”

Mr Cruz was one of three former sex abuse victims from Chile who came to Rome to receive an apology from Pope Francis for the years of abuse that they endured. The victims described clerical sexual abuse as “an epidemic that has destroyed thousands of lives.”

Pope Francis had initially been slow to realise the gravity of the crisis in Chile and even came to the defence of a controversial bishop linked to Father Karadima, the abusive priest.

But he performed an about-turn after Vatican investigators presented him with a 2,300-page dossier showing that sexual abuse of minors had been covered up in Chile for decades, in a pattern that has been repeated in many other countries, notably Ireland.

On Friday, Chile’s 34 bishops offered to resign en masse over the abuse scandal, an act without precedent in the history of the Catholic Church. source

Mohammed bin Salman Makes Stunning Announcement That Saudi Arabia Will Not Be Renewing 50-Year Old Petro Dollar Deal With United States

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The petrodollar system originated during the Yom Kippur war in 1973 when the US, facing economic challenges and an oil embargo, struck a deal with Saudi Arabia.

One of the main things that gives the United States global dominance is the fact that the US dollar is the world’s reserve currency. In 1973, the Petro Dollar System was established with Saudi Arabia, giving payment in US dollars to oil-exporting nations. The petrodollar system replaced gold as the standard of value and helped the US maintain its dominance in international trade. Now Mohammed bin Salman has pulled the plug on the whole thing by not renewing its contract with the United States. From a global perspective, there are few bigger stories right now than this one, this is huge.

There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.” Proverbs 21:20 (KJB)

In June 1974, the US and Saudi Arabia signed an 80-year petrodollar deal that was a key part of US global economic influence. Four days ago, that deal was scrapped by Mohammed bin Salman, potentially throwing the global financial order into chaos. From this point on, the move to CBDC is officially underway, and it will be a race to see who is able to corner that market. Saudi Arabia has made their intentions quite clear. Digital money is the currency of the future, and that future starts right now.

Saudi Arabia’s petro-dollar exit: A global finance paradigm shift

FROM THE BUSINESS STANDARD: Originally signed on 8 June 1974, the deal established two joint commissions, one based on economic cooperation and the other on Saudi Arabia’s military needs. At the time, it was said that it heralded an era of close cooperation between the two countries, says Katja Hamilton of BizCommunity.

American officials at the time expressed optimism that the deal would motivate Saudi Arabia to ramp up its oil production. They also envisioned it as a blueprint for fostering economic collaboration between Washington and other Arab countries.

The crucial decision to not renew the contract enables Saudi Arabia to sell oil and other goods in multiple currencies, including the Chinese RMB, Euros, Yen, and Yuan, instead of exclusively in US dollars. Additionally, the potential use of digital currencies like Bitcoin may also be considered.

This latest development signifies a major shift away from the petrodollar system established in 1972, when the US decoupled its currency from gold, and is anticipated to hasten the global shift away from the US dollar.

In a more recent move, Saudi Arabia has announced its involvement in Project mBridge, a project which explores a multi-central bank digital currency (CBDC) platform shared among participating central banks and commercial banks. It is built on distributed ledger technology (DLT) to enable instant cross-border payments settlements, and foreign-exchange transactions.

 The project has more than 26 observing members including the South African Reserve Bank, which was greenlighted as a member this month.

The better known observing members of mBridge are those of the Bank of Israel, Bank of Namibia, Bank of France, Central Bank of Bahrain, Central Bank of Egypt, Central Bank of Jordan, European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Reserve Bank of Australia, and the World Bank.

In tandem, the project steering committee has created a bespoke governance and legal framework, including a rulebook, tailored to match the platform’s unique decentralised nature.

Project mBridge is the result of extensive collaboration starting in 2021 between the BIS Innovation Hub, the Bank of Thailand, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates, the Digital Currency Institute of the People’s Bank of China and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.

In 2022, a pilot with real-value transactions was conducted. Since then, the mBridge project team has been exploring whether the prototype platform could evolve to become a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) – a stage now reached. As it enters the MVP stage, Project mBridge is now inviting private-sector firms to propose new solutions and use cases that could help develop the platform and showcase all its potential. READ MORE

Saudi Arabia just changed the entire future of the US dollar when it decided to end it’s 50 year agreement with the US and the Petrodollar. Saudi Arabia is now looking to BRICS and China for their future in this new multipolar world. What happens next for the US dollar and BRICS?

New Harvard Study Called ‘The Cryptoterrestrial Hypothesis’ Says There Are Space Aliens Living Under The Earth Or Inside A Moon Base, And They’re Right

Aliens might be living among us, according to a study by Harvard academics called ‘The cryptoterrestrial hypothesis: A case for scientific openness to a concealed earthly explanation for Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena’

Our article today, talking about something called ‘The Cryptoterrestrial Hypothesis’ which makes the case for space aliens living in the Earth, and/or possibly inside the Moon in an underground base is ‘wild and out there’ as far as this lost world is concerned, but your King James Bible knows all about it and has been talking about these things for the past 4,000 years.

And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” Job 1:7 (KJB)

Your King James Bible is the wildest Book yet written, and talks of things that continue to inspire Hollywood filmmakers, even though they’d never give the credit to God for the great story ideas. Job is the oldest book in human history, and in that first book we read about space aliens in the Third Heaven, called the sons of God, and we see the LORD having a conversation with the prince of Hell, Satan, who says he is going to and fro in the Earth. Hell just happens to be in the ‘heart of the earth’. So in 2024, when scientists staring talking about aliens living in the earth or in the moon, they are about 6,000 years late to the conversation. In the meantime, please check out this great Podcast from our friends at The Soul Trap called ‘Angels, Giants, And Things Under The Earth’, it’ll be a blessing to you!

Aliens might be living among us disguised as humans — or in a base inside the moon, according to new Harvard study

FROM THE NY POST: A new paper suggests extraterrestrials could also be living underground or in a base inside the Moon. The study by Harvard University’s Human Flourishing program further puts forward the idea that UFOs, or unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), may be spaceships visiting their Earth-based alien friends.

The researchers have investigated so-called ‘cryptoterrestrials’.

These could be disguising themselves as humans to fit in, may have come from Earth’s future or might have descended from intelligent dinosaurs. The study was created to offer an alternate “unconventional” explanation for UAP sightings and to hypothesize what they might mean, and “the possibility that UAP may involve forms of non-human intelligence (NHI) that are already present in Earth’s environment in some sense” that exist “alongside us in distinct stealth”.

The paper reads: “The author became increasingly aware of the depth of evidence and theory that also tentatively supports another ultraterrestrial explanation: the “cryptoterrestrial” hypothesis (CTH) – our focus here – which holds that UAP may reflect activities of NHIs concealed here on Earth (e.g., underground) and its environs.”

Four theories on aliens living near humans are investigated

  • The first are human cryptoterrestrials: A technologically advanced ancient human civilization that was largely destroyed long ago (e.g. by flood), but continued to exist in remnant form.
  • The second are hominid or theropod cryptoterrestrials: A technologically advanced non-human civilization consisting of some terrestrial animal which evolved to live in stealth (e.g., underground). The paper suggests these could be an ape-like hominid descendant, or descendants of “unknown, intelligent dinosaurs”.
  • The third cryptoterrestrials are former extraterrestrial or extratempestrial cryptoterrestrials. These would have arrived on Earth from elsewhere in the cosmos or from the human future, respectively, and concealed themselves in stealth, such as in the Moon.
  • The fourth, dubbed CTH 4, are “magical Cryptoterrestrials”: Entities which are less like homegrown aliens and more like “earthbound angels”.

The paper says these relate to the world inhabited by humans in ways that are less technological than magical, giving the examples of “fairies, elves, nymphs”. The academics do conclude that their theories, especially the elves suggestion, might be hard to take by many people.

They add: “The principal weakness of CTH 4, by contrast, is its utter strangeness, particularly for readers schooled to limit themselves to modes of explanation within the bounds of, say, the standard model of physics. READ MORE

The Russian Nuclear Missile Frigate Admiral Gorshkov Now Sailing Through Waters Off The Coast Of Florida As US Deploys Three Guided-Missile Destroyers

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

A group of Russian warships that sailed close to Florida shores, closely watched by U.S. destroyers, entered the port of Havana on Wednesday morning ahead of Russian military exercises in the Caribbean.

For quite some time now, the United States and the western nations of Europe have been having fun playing proxy war with Russia through military support for Ukraine. Hundreds of billions in financial aid, missiles, tanks and technology have been given to them, and now Russia decided to have some fun as well by sailing nuclear-armed ships off the coast of Florida. Today Russia conducted marine military exercises 66 miles off the Florida coast.

“There go the shipsthere is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.” Psalm 104:26 (KJB)

In a battle between Russia and the United States, I would clearly and easily pick the USA to win. But from a biblical perspective, Russia is mentioned in Bible prophecy as being one of the major nations in the end times, while America doesn’t even get a mention. There’s a reason for that.

Russian warships, nuclear submarine enter Havana Harbor under watch of U.S. destroyers

FROM THE MIAMI HERALD: Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces officials, the Russian ambassador to Cuba Victor Koronelli and a crowd of Russian tourists and curious Cubans gathered at the Malecon, the famous Havana seaside promenade, to watch the Russian missile frigate Admiral Gorshkov enter the port amid a 21-gun salute.

Early on Wednesday, the top of the nuclear-powered submarine Kazan was visible outside Havana Harbor before it submerged again, Cuban independent media 14ymedio reported.

The presence of the Russian warships in Cuba just 90 miles from U.S. shores, is seen as a gesture of defiance by Vladimir Putin, who last week warned about taking “asymmetrical” steps and the possibility of sending long-range weapons to third countries to attack Western targets after President Joe Biden allowed Ukraine to use U.S. weapons to strike inside Russia.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said the U.S. government has not seen evidence that Russia is placing in or delivering missiles to Cuba.

“We have not seen anything like that,” he said.

The senior official said Russian ships have also been sailing to Havana under past administrations, though this visit has “elements…that are different, that are distinct,” he said in a reference to the Kazan submarine.

The presence of Russian warships in Cuba is “something we watch closely, carefully,” he added. “We will see how this unfolds in the coming days, but we have seen this kind of thing before.” The Biden administration has dismissed the Russian naval movements as a messaging tactic in response to U.S. support for Ukraine. But the U.S. Navy nevertheless deployed a powerful flotilla in response, sending three destroyers, a Coast Guard cutter and a maritime surveillance plane to stalk the Russian vessels. READ MORE
