Neon Nettle: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and George Soros orchestrated a coup within the Vatican in February 2013 to overthrow conservative Pope Benedict, according to emails released by WikiLeaks.
Now evidence has emerged in leaked emails, that Benedict was forced into retirement so he could be replaced with the very liberal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now known as Pope Francis.
With the huge influence that the head of the Catholic Church has over the global flock of loyal Christians, the motive behind installing an operative who will “play ball” is clear.
“We were alarmed to discover,” their letter notes, “that, during the third year of the first term of the Obama administration your previous opponent, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other government officials with whom she associated proposed a Catholic ‘revolution’ in which the final demise of what was left of the Catholic Church in America would be realized.”
The letter includes links to documents and news stories underscoring their claims. It first directs attention to the notorious Soros-Clinton-Podesta e-mails disclosed last year by WikiLeaks, in which Podesta and other progressives discussed regime change to remove what they described as the “middle ages dictatorship” in the Catholic Church. more …
Opinion: I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I started this post. But after a Google search on Catholic Spring it became clear that the conspiracy has legs.
Catholic World Report website, Ann Hendershott, July 1, 2018:
“It is now impossible to deny that Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United have worked for years to undermine and manipulate Catholic leadership:
Beginning in 2007, orthodox Catholic writers including myself wrote dozens of articles in an attempt to expose the funding and duplicitousness of two fake Catholic groups: the George Soros-funded Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United.
When Mr. Obama was running for president, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United tried to neutralize the abortion issue throughout his campaign—suggesting that his proposals on social justice issues like poverty were the real way to reduce abortion rates without restricting abortion rights.
Now, with the release of the Podesta emails, there is confirmation that the claims of the two organizations were lies from the start. The two groups were never created to help support the bishops. On the contrary, they were created from with the intention of provoking a revolt against the bishops who are, as Sanford Newman snidely wrote, still “stuck in the Middle Ages.”
In his February 11, 2012 e-mail to John Podesta, Sanford Newman wrote:
“This whole controversy with the bishops opposing contraceptive coverage even though 98% of Catholic women (and their conjugal partners) have used contraception has me thinking . . . There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church. Is contraceptive coverage an issue around which that could happen. The Bishops will undoubtedly continue the fight.”
It all makes sense in a twisted kind of way:
Benedict and conservative bishops were/are right to be against abortion but for the wrong reason. According to Catholic doctrine that has been played down in recent years, unbaptized infants are to spend eternity in comfort in a non-Scriptural place called limbo, underscoring the need for Baptism.
Benedict needed to be replaced by a progressive that better fit the Obama new world order. And they got what they wished for.
