Does the Holy See Support a One World Order?

The Vatican II – Council for Justice and Peace has released an eighteen page report calling for world-wide economic reform; the recommendations of which, sound very similar to what the political elite and the banksters have been promoting for years. The document will also be welcomed by the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowds. You can find the full text of the Vatican’s position paper here.

I became aware of this thanks to the poem posted by The Bard of Murdock yesterday. The Bard’s article link led to this story at Reuters. here are some snips:

The Vatican called on Monday for sweeping reforms of the world economy and the creation of a ethical, global authority to regulate financial markets as demonstrations against corporate greed continued to spring up in major cities across the globe.

[…]

Urging Wall Street powerbrokers to examine the impact of their decisions on humanity, the Vatican called on those who wanted to change economic structures to “not be afraid to propose new ideas, even if they might destabilise pre-existing balances of power that prevail over the weakest.”

[…]

The Vatican called for the establishment of “a supranational authority” with worldwide scope and “universal jurisdiction” to guide economic policies and decisions.

[…]

“In fact, one can see an emerging requirement for a body that will carry out the functions of a kind of ‘central world bank’ that regulates the flow and system of monetary exchanges similar to the national central banks,” it said.

The document acknowledged that such change would take years to put into place and was bound to encounter resistance.

“Of course, this transformation will be made at the cost of a gradual, balanced transfer of a part of each nation’s powers to a world authority and to regional authorities, but this is necessary at a time when the dynamism of human society and the economy and the progress of technology are transcending borders, which are in fact already very eroded in a globalised world.”

The Institute of Economic Affairs was quick to respond to the Vatican report. Here are some excerpts:

“The sorts of systems of global financial regulation that the Commission calls for exacerbated the financial crisis as they led to many countries having the same failings in their banking systems at the same time. Indeed, many of the specific problems we faced in Anglo-Saxon banking systems were caused by financial institutions attempting to “game” regulations imposed by global financial regulators.

[…]

“Throughout the document the Commission wrongly asserts that liberalism is a theoretical ideal divorced from reality. It is quite extraordinary then that the main proposal is for a world legal authority. In reality such authorities invariably become captured by cliques and special interests and are rarely at the service of the people – from whom, of course, they are so remote. Indeed, they often seem directly opposed to the very values for which the Church stands.

Although I understand the Church’s concern for the poor of the world, I find the Vatican’s position mis-guided to say the least.  We can be sure the OWS protesters will latch on to this message from the Vatican as demonstrating support for their cause. But there is something else that worries me more.  I have use these pages several time to express my concern over the potential of a world-wide economic meltdown that could be heading our way.  I have suggested that if that happens, the One World Order (OWO) types will be there to offer us salvation. Now they will be able to claim the even the Vatican supports their ideas.  Folks, this is not good!

Below  you will find the poem that the Bard did on this subject, which also includes a wonderful video on world economics.

The Council of Babel

*
The latest long-winded release
From Council for Justice and Peace,
     Is leftist in tone,
     As Councils are prone,
And reads like a period piece.
 *
The period being the years
That Marx and his sad engineers,
     Developed a plan,
     To save modern man,
And bring down our global frontiers.
*
The death and destruction released

By Marx and his communist beast
     Might ought to give pause
     To cleric’s applause
For globalization, increased.
*
The Council might also review
The state of the sinking EU,
     Before they should call
     For us to install
A centralized financial crew.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. I don’t know if Holly See supports a One World Order, (I’ve not met her), but I definitely believe the Holy See does. 🙂

    The OWO will be huge and it will need vast amounts of money. The Holy Roman Catholic Church has lots of money. The HRCC also wants us all to be a part of it for our “salvation”. The OWO, while basically evil, kinda has the same mindset.

  2. To clarify, this was done by a Vatical panel, but does not carry the weight of an official pronouncement.

    Regardless, it chilled me to the bone to read that document. Have none of those authors ever read any Hayek?

    This missive is naive at best, dangerous at worse. The concentration of power they recommend would usher in an era of global slavery. Why didn’t they call for eternal rainbows and bountiful harvests every year and a “living wage” of a million dollars per annum?

    The Vatican needs to focus more on spiritual matters, including cleaning up the sleazy corners of its own house, and leave economic recommendations to people who have their feet planted in the real world.

  3. Jim – I’m surprised this little fiasco has died down so quickly. It was an ill advised thing for the social and justice department of the Vatican to promulgate. But – it is called the “social justice” department.

    Fix your title. Holly should be Holy and after you’ve done that send me your email. I really hate having to give you a heads up about a typo in public. It makes me feel mean and pushy. The only reason I don’t have more typos is my hubby edits almost all my stuff.

  4. My question has always been why does the Vatican have scarlet and purple as its official colors when those are the official colors of the Whore of Babylon. Seems like someone could have read the end of the Book and said, “let’s go with something else..”

    The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious [c]stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, 5 and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
    Revelation 17:4-5 NASB

    I’m thinking that maybe Father Malachi Martin was right.

  5. Many years ago, my parents said that the Vatican would, one day, come out in blatant support of the one world order. My parents, very politically aware, are at their eternal rest now. Thank God! Otherwise, they’d be stressed out as much as I am.

  6. From what i heard, they’re not the official spokesman of the Vatican, just some loony offshoot which shouldn’t really be taken seriously.

  7. I’m not Catholic, but I have a lot of respect for the Church’s stand on moral issues. I have to part ways with them on this for two reasons.
    1. Central Banking is what created this mess.
    2. We already have a world central bank, it is call the Bank for International Settlements.

  8. Whys should a cleric be any more qualified to opine on economics or government than anyone else? While there might be some who are qualified, simply because one wears an ecclesiastical robe does imply any greater understanding of these topics than others. When the Catholic church is able to get its own house in order–for example, deal with the sex abuse scandal, deal with the lavish lifestyles of many cardinals (indeed, even the Pope)–then it might become more qualified to instruct the rest of the world on good government and economic issues.
