Beyond all question, Francis I, the Jesuit pope, has pushed the diabolical doctrine of liberation theology, religious Marxism, the doctrine so violently and fanatically promoted throughout Latin America and Africa by the Jesuits since the 1970s, to the very forefront of his devilish “ministry”. Even the secular press has noted this fact. In the London Telegraph, for example, in early 2014, an article appeared entitled “Liberation Theology is back as Pope Francis holds capitalism to account.” Its subtitle was: “Amid accusations of Marxism, Pope Francis has turned the Vatican into the spearhead of radical economic thinking.” Excerpts from the article:
“Unfettered global capitalism has met its match at last. Ever since Bishop Bergoglio picked St Francis of Assisi to be his guiding inspiration and lead a ‘church for the poor’, all his actions have been in the same direction. Liberation Theology is taking over the Vatican… The ‘preferential option for the poor’ is back. The doctrine that so inflamed controversy in the 1970s and 1980s, famously wedded to Nicaragua’s Sandinista cause, now has a Papal imprimatur. It is close to becoming official doctrine for the world’s 1.2bn Roman Catholics under ‘Evangelii Gaudium’, the Pope’s first apostolic exhortation. This will have consequences…
“The conservative power of the Papal Curia is being broken. All of a sudden the Vatican is the spearhead of radical economic thinking. The best-known of the Pope’s newly-minted Council of Cardinals is none other than Archbishop Reinhard Marx, the firebrand ‘Rote Kardinal’ of Munich and author of Das Kapital: A Plea for Man…
“Professor Harvey Cox from Harvard University writes in the Nation that one of the Pope’s first gestures after his acclamation was to invite Peru’s Gustavo Gutiérrez to Rome. This is highly significant. He is the priest who wrote the original ‘Magna Carta’ for Liberation Theology in 1968, the symbol of the movement. They celebrated Mass together, then had breakfast.”
What, then, happens to this idea that Bergoglio in Argentina was opposed to Jesuit liberation theology? It evaporates. In Argentina he was playing a role, as a faithful Jesuit under orders. He was not against what the radical Marxist Jesuit liberation theologians were doing while he himself was hob-nobbing with anti-Marxists – he was simply following orders!
In December 2013 Francis continued his praise and support of liberation theology. He wrote a letter to Brazil’s “Base Ecclesial Communities” in which he expressed the hope that “the light of the Holy Spirit help you live with renewed enthusiasm the commitments of the Gospel of Jesus within Brazilian society.” All innocent-sounding – until one understands what these “Base Ecclesial Communities” were, and are. The following is from my book, “Holy War” Against South Africa:
“The ‘Catholic Base Communities’, as they were called [in Latin America], numbered over 53000 in Brazil alone by 1982. They were the equivalent of the classic Marxist cell groups which were extremely successful in pre-Soviet Russia, and they were usually led by priests, most often Jesuits. The indoctrination was ‘meant to develop a political approach to economic and social problems via active disruption or even violent militancy. The ‘communidades de base’ are, therefore, powerful revolutionary tools in the hands of a militant Catholic Church preparing them for use during the forthcoming commotions.’”
Thus, time and again, this pope voices his support for radical religious Marxism. He did it again on April 28, 2014, when he used Twitter to send out the following short tweet:
“Inequality is the root of social evil.”
Apart from it being a direct contradiction of the Word of God, which declares: “For the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Tim. 6:10), it was a statement of pure Marxism.
Then he did it again some weeks later, when he again condemned the world’s financial markets, at a conference entitled, “Investing in the Poor: How Impact Investing Can Serve the Common Good in Light of Evangelii Gaudium [the pope’s recent document]”.
Of course, so as not to alarm anti-Communist Roman Catholics too much, every so often Francis issues a statement which seems to indicate his opposition to Marxism. But in doing so he is again simply acting as a good Jesuit does. For example, he has said, “The Marxist ideology is wrong. But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people”. In saying Marxist ideology is wrong, he means atheistic Marxism; but religious Marxism, specifically Roman Catholic Marxism, is absolutely acceptable to him, for it was the Jesuits who came up with the doctrine.
