Letter to the editor: Francis to increase Vatican power in US

Tuesday, April 9, 2013 - 12:01 am

The religiously crippled love their religious fantasies more than truth and have catapulted Pope Francis to new heights. It is time for truth.

Pope Francis was elected by a congregation of robed politicians. They know the U.S. is recognized as the world’s most powerful nation. He who most controls U.S. wields most power in the world. The conclave has a common interest in expanding the power of the Vatican. They know the Vatican has the largest congregations in the U.S. and forced President Obama to backpedal on legislation to allow churches to opt out on issues such as abortion and birth control measures.

These robed politicians want the advantage of the growing political clout of the Hispanics, blacks and other minorities who have immigrated to the U.S. and all the poor who suffer under the tyranny of the few outrageously wealthy upper classes. They know there are many poor, uneducated and unsophisticated black Africans who buy the Catholic brand of religion, and many have already been inducted into the Catholic Church. The same is true of peoples south of the U.S. border. The Vatican has long been expanding its reach into both of these areas with many poor easily misled by Vatican’s propaganda to increase its power in the world. Expect Vatican support for mass immigration to increase Vatican influence and control of U.S. politics. The conclave elected Pope Francis believing his election was more likely than others to increase Vatican power in the U.S. A U.S. pope would be too obvious and undermine some validity of their claim to truly represent the world’s poor – pure conspiracy politics behind closed doors.
