PopeWatch: It Would Explain a Lot

PopeWatch2-199x300-199x300-199x300

 

From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:

 

A new series of emails released yesterday by WikiLeaks connected to its dump of John Podesta’s server show that ancestors to presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attempted to sabotage the Catholic Church by creating the Society of Jesus hundreds of years prior to her nomination.

The emails in question discuss Clinton’s and Podesta’s lineage back to the 1540’s when family ancestors schemed to undermine the Church by beginning the famed Society of Jesus that they hoped would, centuries later, incite disunity within the Church during “some sort of a Church council, and hopefully, help secure a possible future nomination of an heir.”

“[Catholics] are attracted to reason, to Thomistic thought and, God forbid one day, even to the belief that matters ought to be handled by the lowest centralized competent authority possible, meaning, not our heir. Could you even imagine if, say in a few hundred years a new country was begun, built upon the basic rights of citizens and the separation of Church and State, whereby no one, including political candidates, could discriminate against any particular religion? Screwtape forbid,” wrote John Podesta’s ancestor Robert Podesta in a leaked letter written in 1539, in reference to conservative Catholics.

“I imagine they think the Church is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” Robert Podesta continued. “But imagine if we began a ‘society’ so strong and faithful to the Magisterium in the beginning of their formation, and perhaps a little longer, that Catholics would feel so guilty and maybe even blasphemous if they ever disagreed with one of its members or said anything ill of the order? Then hundreds of years down the road many of the members of this ‘society’  would all of a sudden no longer be attracted to Thomistic thought and, well come to think of it, any thought at all.”

“Excellent point,” Hillary Clinton descendant Jonathan Rodham responded. “They can throw around ‘wisdom’ and ‘discernment’ and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.”

Another letter from Rodham called the Church a medieval dictatorship, calling for a “Catholic spring,” against the teachings of the Bible and virtually everything that is written by any news source unless they are called the National Catholic Reporter.

Go here to read the comments.  PopeWatch called the Vatican for comment, but was told that the Pope was at a meeting of Jesuits which wouldn’t end until they had each made their daily quota of snide Jesuit quips.

  1. funny.

    Catholic Spring!
    Paradoxically St.Pope JPII did speak of a new Springtime for the Catholic Church. It’s on its way. Not the “Catholic Spring,” however.
    Hillary Clinton is in need of a heart transplant.
    Heart and soul.

  2. Remember, only Republican Catholics are bad. Or, perhaps, only Republican Catholics are real Catholics.

  3. @ Michael Dowd.

    You just described who we are, the Deplorables. Real Catholics.

    The masquerade ball is winding down.

    Soon the party ends.
    Soon the goat’s and the sheep will go to their respective eternal homes.

    Soon each camp will be rewarded for what they did and taught others to do.
    Soon the Battle Hymn of the Republic will sound from pole to pole.

    “…His Truth is Marching On!”
