    Since President Donald Trump's election, monthly lectures on social justice at the 600-seat Gothic chapel of New York's Union Theological Seminary have been filled to capacity with crowds three times what they usually draw. In January, the 181-year-old Upper Manhattan graduate school, whose architecture evokes London's Westminster Abbey, turned away about 1,000 people from a lecture on mass incarceration. In the nine years that Reverend Serene Jones has served as its president, she has never seen such crowds. "The election of Trump has been a clarion call to progressives in the Protestant and Catholic churches in America to move out...

    Pope Francis says he’ll wait to see what U.S. President Donald Trump does before forming an opinion about him. In an interview published Saturday evening by Spanish newspaper El Pais, Francis says he doesn't like “judging people early. We’ll see what Trump does.” Asked about populist-style political leaders emerging in the United States and Europe, Francis warned against seeking a savior in times of crisis. …

    Pope Francis said the death of Cuba's revolutionary leader Fidel Castro was "sad news" and that he was grieving and praying for his repose. Francis expressed his condolences in a Spanish-language message to Fidel's brother, President Raul Castro on Saturday. The pope, who met Fidel Castro when he visited Cuba last year, said he had received the "sad news" and added: "I express to you my sentiments of grief." Fidel Castro, who was a professed atheist, was baptized as a Catholic and educated in schools run by the Jesuits, the religious order of which the pope is a member.

    During his years as a student at Harvard Law School in the early 1980s, Tim Kaine took a year off from his legal studies in order to work with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras. During the nine months he spent there, Kaine developed a keen interest in the teachings of local priests who were adherents of liberation theology, which is essentially Marxism dressed up as Christianity. Kaine himself embraced liberation theology and later claimed that it had “changed” him and “deepened” him. After completing his legal education, Kaine joined a civil litigation firm and practiced law for 17 years. He...

    THE “D’ESCOTO CASE” AND THOSE WHO WANT TO WIPE OUT THE WORK DONE BY JOHN PAUL II AND BENEDICT XVI Antonio Socci Libero September 7, 2014 In the era of Bergoglio, the Vatican has practically rehabilitated Liberation Theology, which came into existence in the 1960s and has caused untold disasters, mainly in Latin America, by fostering the Church’s subordination to Marxist thought. Over the past months there have been startling occurrences, such as the “landing” of Gustavo Gutierrez (“the father” of Liberation Theology) in the Vatican itself. A year ago, “L'Osservatore Romano” published large extracts from one of his books...

    When the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) was first formed right after George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin on July 13, 2013, most overlooked the true intentions of the group beyond their calls for “justice”. Fast forward to today and it can no longer be overlooked that their calls for justice now result in retaliatory violence against those whom they believe are the oppressors, namely white people in general and police officers specifically. By tracing the origins of the organization back to its philosophical formation in the 1960’s, we can begin to see how BLM...

    The Democratic PartyÂ’s nominee for the Vice Presidency, Senator Tim Kaine, spent his youth as a willing dupe for the KGB propaganda machine and its active measures in Latin America during the Cold War. In 1980, at age 22, Kaine interrupted his law studies at Harvard to sign up for a year long stint in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, which was heavily involved in various types of missionary work in Central America. During this time, the merde was indeed hitting the ventilateur south of the US border. Communist backed guerillas were intent on overthrowing the pro US government in El...

    White and Christian voters are abandoning the Democratic Party, according to a remarkable new analysis of political party demographics. The Pew Research Center found that there is now a 29-point white gap, the largest ever between the GOP and Democrats. According to the new analysis, "non-Hispanic whites make up 57 percent of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters, down significantly from 76 percent in 1992. By contrast, though the share of GOP voters who are white also has declined since 1992, the change has been much more modest: Currently, 86 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters are non-Hispanic whites,...

    The New York Times Sept. 4 feature on Tim Kaine1, shows that his year in Honduras introduced him not to Jesus Christ, but to Karl Marx. The story doesn't say that, exactly, but connect the dots with a little history, and an alarming picture emerges of Kaine's adventures with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America. The Times notes that in Honduras: “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology...” This wasn't mainstream “Catholic thought” at the time. It was a radical, Marxist-based ideology at odds with the Church, the pope, and the United States, but...

    While meaningless United Nations hand-wringing over the North Korean nuclear weapons program garners the headlines, the world body is moving ahead with a global conference to lay the groundwork for world government financed by global taxes. The communist head of the U.N. General Assembly is leading the effort, but he is getting crucial support from "progressive" economists who advise the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party. The United Nations Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development, previously scheduled for June 1-3, will now take place on June 24-26. U.N.

    The Religious War between CIA and KGB in Latin America How the U.S. Supported the Protestant Advance against the Liberation Theology Promoted by Catholic Bishops and KGB By Julio Severo The information and disinformation war by the Soviet Union and the United States in the Cold War days was not limited only to the political sphere in Latin America. According to two Catholic bloggers, while the Soviet Union supported the advance of Liberation Theology, the U.S. supported the advance of evangelicals and Pentecostals. The Soviet Union saw the Catholic Church in Latin America as a natural ally of Marxism...

    NEW YORK — The President of New York's Sergeants Benevolent Association says he supports the decision of Miami's police union to boycott Beyonce's Formation tour concert scheduled in April. Ed Mullins is so incensed over the Grammy winner's black power performance at the Super Bowl, he's thinking of encouraging a similar security boycott for her concert at Citi Field in June. Performing music from her new single "Formation," Beyonce and her backup dancers wore outfits modeled after the militant Black Panthers group of years past, and offered support of the current Black Lives Matter movement. Many were outraged by the...

    The pontiff denounces "triumphalism" and "fundamentalism" in religious practice, and emphasizes the importance of a personal familiarity with Christ on the part of bishops. Pope Francis' visit to Mexico, which began on February 12, has been received with all of the fanfare expected for a papal visit from one of the most Catholic nations in the world. Just as Mexicans warmly welcomed John Paul II and Benedict XVI, so they are also giving a very enthusiastic reception to the current pontiff, who is making a point of focusing on the country's suffering lower classes. However, in his rhetorical enthusiasm...

More revealing, however, are the icons which, apparently seriously, depict the Russian president as a saint. The Russian Orthodox Church sometimes treats him like one. Russian documentaries extol Putin as the man who resuscitated Russian spirituality. Kirill I, Patriarch of Moscow and head of the Russian Orthodox Church, has described his leadership as a"miracle from God"....

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    The controversial religious leader Jeremiah Wright compared Native Americans to Palestinians at the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March on the National Mall on Saturday, going so far as to assert that “Jesus was a Palestinian." Wright, who once served as pastor to President Obama, was one of several hours' worth of speakers in Washington, D.C., for an event called “Justice or Else!” that sought to channel the energy of the Black Lives Matter movement. Wright placed the event in historical context. “The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried...

    When it comes to considering the arguments of newly resurgent Christian progressives, we hold these truths to be self-evident: Jesus was not a socialist, the Bible is not an economics textbook, and while scripture commands believers to help the poor, it also commands the poor to help themselves. As Pope Francis gains rock-star status on the economic left, Christians would do well to remember not just scripture, but the economic reality of recent world experience. This morning, the pope addressed Congress with relative restraint. Rather than decrying the perceived excesses of global capitalism — calling it, as he once...
