And just to emphasise how Socialism/Marxism is using radical environmentalism to achieve its goals, Francis went on to speak of the supposed link between the protection of the environment and “the building of a just and equitable social order.” He said “the pursuit of the common good must be a primary goal”, a very typical Roman Catholic Socialist phrase; and then trotted out the just-as-typical Socialist doctrine that poverty and frustration are at the root of violence, conflict and terrorism. No, these evils stem from the depraved nature of man, and even if it was possible (which it isn’t – see Matt. 26:11) to eradicate all poverty and all “frustration” (pie-in-the-sky stuff, this, but beloved of liberals and western Socialists), there would still be just as much violence, conflict and terrorism. Muslim terrorists are not poverty-stricken and hungry – they are Muslims, and their religion demands that they do what they do.
To crown it all, he went on about the need for “a just distribution of the natural and human resources with which the Creator has blessed your country”. Karl Marx couldn’t have said it better. And just who should be the beneficiaries of this “just redistribution of resources” in Kenya? Most of the population is very poor. Could it be that Francis was softening up even the poor African countries to accept the eventual theft of their resources by the UN, to be “justly redistributed” as the UN sees fit? In other words, to the super-rich, elite world leaders who desire to grab the world’s wealth and are going about to get it by preaching the lie that only the UN can be trusted to spread the wealth evenly!
Still not done with the theme of radical, Marxist-inspired environmentalism, Francis visited the UN headquarters in Nairobi, and said that the COP21 meeting in Paris was an important stage for developing a new global energy system on three pillars: “minimal use of fossil fuels, energy efficiency and use of energy sources with little or no carbon content.” He added that if the Paris conference failed to eliminate carbon use, this would be “catastrophic” (it won’t, but this is the mythical “climate change” mantra of the radicals). And he spoke of the growing “global indifference” to millions suffering the effect of “climate change” (lies added to more lies).
Francis’ second stop on his African tour was Uganda, where 47% of the population is Roman Catholic. He said mass at the shrine of Roman Catholics who were martyred in Uganda in the 1880s by the king for refusing to give in to his demands, which clashed with their Roman Catholic faith. Francis’ message may have been indirect, but it was crystal-clear: modern-day Ugandan Roman Catholics must have the same courage as those martyrs, and resist the encroachment of the Muslim religion in their country.
The Central African Republic (CAR)
The CAR, where over 37% of the population is Roman Catholic, is a country in turmoil. A Muslim anti-government rebel group called Seleka took over part of the country in 2012 and 2013, including the capital. In response, a “Christian” militia called the anti-Balaka was formed (obviously not truly Christian in any sense). Both groups signed a ceasefire in July 2014, but sporadic fighting still occurs in places. A transitional government is in charge and elections are scheduled for December 2015. And hence the need for Francis to make an appearance, just before the election, and rally the Papist faithful, to make sure the Islamic group did not win the election.
Francis was invited to speak inside the Grand Mosque of Koudoukou in the CAR’s capital, Bangui. What kind of claptrap did his speech consist of? Why, this: “Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters. We must, therefore, consider ourselves and conduct ourselves as such.” Christians and Muslims are not brothers and sisters, for Muslims worship a false god. Of course, Francis wasn’t referring to true Christians, he was meaning Roman Catholics; yet even so he still lied: Roman Catholics and Muslims are not brothers and sisters, either (not in the way he was meaning, at any rate). For centuries, these two religions have been at war. They have been filled with mutual hatred and loathing for each other. Both religions believe the other is a false religion. Francis knows this. But because it suits the Papacy’s plans for him to speak this way, he does so.
He went on to say that those who claim to believe in God must be men and women of peace. A bit late for that, Francis, considering neither the Roman Catholic religion nor the Muslim religion has ever proclaimed peace, and the followers of both have been guilty of dreadful massacres in the name of God, throughout their histories. “We are well aware that the recent events and acts of violence which have shaken your country were not grounded in properly religious motives,” he said. Another lie: the recent acts of Islamic terror were most definitely grounded in the proper religious motives of the Islamic religion – just as the various acts of terror conducted by Roman Catholics throughout history were well and truly grounded in religious motives. Both religions are violent religions, always have been, and by their very nature always will be.
Given these undeniable facts, when Francis said, “Together, we must say no to hatred, to revenge and to violence, particularly that violence which is perpetrated in the name of a religion or of God himself”, his words were as hollow as the beating of a stick on a dead, hollowed-out tree stump. Violence in the name of the Papal religion, and violence in the name of the Islamic religion, has characterised both religions since they were founded.
