It is too large a subject to go into the involvement of the Vatican in the actual birth of Communism; but that involvement was real and very deep. It is not surprising, therefore, that Communism has much in common with Romanism, as a daughter does with a mother (Rev. 17:5). One can see this very clearly when one compares Communist doctrine with the following, taken from the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the [Roman Catholic] Church: “Putting the principle of the universal destination of goods into concrete practice… means that methods, limits and objects must be precisely defined… If it is true that everyone is born with the right to use the goods of the earth, it is likewise true that, in order to ensure that this right is exercised in an equitable and orderly fashion, regulated interventions are necessary, interventions that are the result of national and international agreements”. And: “Christian [i.e. Papist] tradition has never recognized the right to private property as absolute and untouchable: ‘On the contrary, it has always understood this right within the broader context of the right common to all to use the goods of the whole of creation: the right to private property is subordinated to the right to common use, to the fact that goods are meant for everyone’”(italics added). Ex-priest Richard Bennett is correct when he comments on this, “The idea that ‘goods are meant for everyone’ is a principle that inspired Marxism and has been practiced in all the communist regimes”.
Benedict stated: “The international community has an urgent duty to find institutional means of regulating the exploitation of non-renewable resources, involving poor countries in the process, in order to plan together for the future.” And: “The technologically advanced societies can and must lower their domestic energy consumption, either through an evolution in manufacturing methods or through greater ecological sensitivity among their citizens.” Favourite politically correct catch-phrases and buzz-words are here: “international community”; “exploitation of non-renewable resources”; “ecological sensitivity”. It’s all part of the radical environmentalist movement, which is advancing governmental control over the earth in the name of “saving the planet”. It’s all hogwash. But it’s very, very useful to the Reds.
He also said, “The Church has a responsibility towards creation and she must assert this responsibility in the public sphere.” By the “Church” he means the Papacy, of course, and no other. And this “responsibility towards creation” talk is nothing but radical “green” environmentalism, one of the modern fronts for pushing the Communist agenda, dressed up in a religious guise. It is what is known in liberal theological circles as “green theology”, and like all other leftist religious “theologies” – liberation theology, feminist theology, etc. – it advances the Communist movement via innocuous-sounding “movements” which in truth are radically reshaping the world as we once knew it in the image of the Reds.
The Benedict encyclical states that the new international order he is calling for, necessary because of the “unrelenting growth of global interdependence”, can be brought into being through “reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth.” The prophetic Papal Beast of Revelation has always, through the centuries, used the “teeth” of the political systems it has controlled to achieve its objectives. Now it is calling for “teeth” to be given to a revitalised United Nations! Once again the Beast is roaring, and when we look into its jaws we can see the kind of “teeth” it is hoping to have, so as to conquer the world.
He states that the new “world political authority” should have “teeth” in the following form: “the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties, and also with the co-ordinated measures adopted in various international forums.” Simply put, what the Roman pope is calling for is a world body able to enforce its will on the nations of the world! And if that world body was controlled by the Vatican, then Rome’s age-old goal of a fully Roman Catholic world would have been realised.
He added: “such an authority would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all, regard for justice, and respect for rights.” Since when has the Papacy had any regard for justice or respect for “rights”? Never. Just look at its long history of injustice, cruelty, torture, murder, massacre. And the United Nations has a dismal track record as well in matters of justice and “rights”. Just look at how it has consistently supported Marxist dictatorships and power-mad dictators the world over, time after time after time. UN “peacekeepers” sexually abuse women and children. It has failed to protect entire populations from genocide. It is a monstrous organisation that has done nothing whatsoever to promote or achieve world peace, but the very opposite.
