Black Socialist Pope To Follow Black Socialist President?

Peter Turkson SC Black Socialist Pope to Follow Black Socialist President?

With African Catholic Cardinal Peter Turkson in the running as the next pope, the media have noted that he carries the fancy title of the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, an arm of the Vatican. But they have failed to note the existence of a left-wing lobby in the U.S. working feverishly on his behalf. It is the same group of radicals, with connections to billionaire hedge-fund operator George Soros, who backed Obama for president by claiming he shared their Catholic values.

One of Turkson’s chief supporters in the U.S. appears to be Stephen Schneck, an associate professor of politics at the Catholic University of America (CUA) and a top official of “Catholics for Obama.” He runs CUA’s Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies and holds conferences featuring left-wing and liberal speakers.

Former AFL-CIO boss John Sweeney, a member of Democratic Socialists of America, told one of Schneck’s conferences that Jesus Christ was pro-union. Another speaker was socialist Harold Meyerson.

When Turkson’s Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace issued a controversial 2011 document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Political Authority,” Schneck called it “breathtaking” and a “Catholic way forward” from the present crisis.

A “global political authority” was endorsed by Pope Benedict XVI’s “Charity in Truth” encyclical in 2009.

Schneck, who served on the board of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, a group funded by Soros, is so important a figure in progressive Catholic circles that there is speculation that Obama will appoint him as U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican. A writer noted that Schneck “has worked hand-in-glove with different offices at the USCCB [United States Conference of Catholic Bishops], with Catholic Relief Services, with the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders and the Catholic Coalition for Climate Change, and with other Catholic groups, organizing conferences that call attention to important issues.”

He wrote that “Schneck’s range of political and media contacts, his organizational capabilities, his ability to distinguish a central from a peripheral issue, all are vital to making these conferences a success. He brought Cardinal Peter Turkson to CUA two years ago for a conference on Rerum Novarum.”

Rerum Novarum is a papal encyclical in which, as William Mayer notes, “the Church proclaimed itself competent to speak on economic matters, establishing a justification for governmental control, to a greater or lesser degree, of the marketplace and by extension, players within the economy, including everyday citizens and businesses.”

Rerum Novarum is the basis for many “social justice” theories promoted by leftist and Marxist operatives in the church.

Turkson, who is from Ghana, has taken “social justice” to the global level, arguing for a “global financial authority” to solve the world’s economic problems.

For this reason, left-wing “progressives” backing Obama hope Turkson will be the next pope and use the Vatican in a global campaign against capitalism.

Vatican Radio said the Turkson document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Political Authority,” had “proposed the creation of a global political authority to manage the economy and a new world economic order” with the United Nations “as a point of reference.”

Crisis Magazine, a conservative Catholic publication, said it contained “some downright frightening prescriptions for reshaping the worldwide economy” and could be seen as “a blueprint for a George Soros agenda.”

Turkson spoke at the May 2, 2011 conference organized by Schneck at CUA on the subject of Rerum Novarum. He appeared with Bishop Stephen E. Blaire, chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Alexia K. Kelley, deputy director of the Obama White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

He was scheduled to speak at this weekend’s 30th Anniversary conference of the Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN) at Notre Dame.

The event, held in collaboration with the far-left Institute for Policy Studies, included workshops and panels on such topics as:

  • Examining International Aid to Africa in the Light of Catholic Social Teaching
  • Climate Change and Its Impact on the People of Africa
  • The expansion of U.S. military activities in Africa

The group says about itself: “AFJN works primarily with the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government to advance our message of social justice, though we are also registered as a UN-DPI [Department of Public Information] organization at the United Nations.”

It counts the Department of Social Development and World Peace, the national public policy agency of the U.S. Catholic Bishops, as one of its “collaborating organizations.”

    This would not surprise me. Since the Second Vatican Council Rome has gone to anywhere but Heaven in a hand basket. BTW: I'm a Traditional Roman Catholic, not Vatican II Catholic.

  3. God help us! We already have an affirmative action marxist in the White House. No to another one in the Vatican!

  4. Al Metcalf says:

    I find it very disconcerting that we have three sworn enemies who have been at war with each other forever and now it appears that they have sign some kind of 'lets all work together and destroy the United States'. We have the Social Democratic Party, the Islamic Jihad and the Catholic Church all hanging out in the same club. Then we have Obama with his finger in every pie. He is a member of the Socialist Party, he also hangs with the Muslims and now he is also sliding into a push position in the Catholic Church.
    What is going on….
    Is this a case of 'We all hate the United States of America and this Capitalistic Free Enterprise business model, so let us all work together and destroy the biggest problem and then we can turn on each other and fight it out to the bitter end…….

    • Al Metcalf says:

      We Americans had better keep a good watch on our freedoms and who our politicians are hugging up to, for one day soon we may have to stand up and fight for our very lives against those who would enslave us…. The Socialist Communists are taking more and more positions around the world…..
      As Nikita said, 'One day America will wake up and discover that they have become a Communist Nation without a single shot fired'. ARE WE THERE YET????
      Eternal Vigilance is the price of Freedom, make sure you are vigilant, for people are enslaved one person at a time…… Just like a frog getting boiled…..

    Lets hope the new pope is chosen by his ability to lead not the color of his skin just hope they don't make the same mistake that Americans made in electing Sambo because he was half Jigabboo

  6. If he were to take over then he would be fulfilling the prophecy of the end of times.He will be the last pope,

  8. Rev. 13:3-4, "…and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" (KJV)

    Rev. 14:9-11, "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." (KJV)

    Rev. 12:17, "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (KJV)

    Rev. 14:12, "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." (KJV)
