Pope: There are limits to free speech

Pope Francis said there are limits to freedom of speech, especially when it insults or ridicules someone’s faith, in comments that the Vatican later said Friday did not mean justifying the attack on the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Francis spoke about the Paris terror attacks while en route to the Philippines on Thursday, defending free speech as not only a fundamental human right but a duty to speak one’s mind for the sake of the common good.

But he said there were limits.

By way of example, he referred to Alberto Gasbarri, who organizes papal trips and was standing by his side aboard the papal plane.

“If my good friend Dr. Gasbarri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch,” Francis said half-jokingly, throwing a mock punch his way. “It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

His pretend punch aside, Francis by no means said the violent attack on Charlie Hebdo was justified. Quite the opposite: He said such horrific violence in God’s name couldn’t be justified and was an “aberration.” But he said a reaction of some sort was to be expected.

The Rev. Thomas Rosica, who collaborates with the Vatican press office, issued a statement early Friday stressing that the pope was by no means justifying the attack on Charlie Hebdo.

“Pope Francis has not advocated violence with his words on the flight,” he said in a statement.

He said Francis’ words were “spoken colloquially and in a friendly, intimate manner among colleagues and friends on the journey.” He noted that Francis has spoken out clearly against the Paris attacks and that violence in God’s name can never be justified.

The Guilty Parties

There are a number of guilty parties responsible for the current deplorable criminality engulfing western civilization.

First, there are the “Higher Contracting Powers” — the Global Estate Elite responsible for caretaking the entire planet. Each separate nation has three such caretakers, one for each “jurisdiction”—air, land, and sea. The caretakers of the united States of America are: (1) Pope Francis acting in his “temporal role” as FRANCISCUS and his appointee, the Rector of the National Shrine, who are responsible for the entire planet’s well-being and this little patch of it, respectively, (2) HRM ELIZABETH II, and (3) SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY, JACOB JOSEPH LEW, who inherited the responsibility when his Office gained control of the Office of The United States Postmaster.

Of the three international trustees only the past two Popes– Benedict XVI and Francis– have honored their obligation to the people of the world and the united States of America. Both these men have very courageously and tenaciously sought to correct the misadministration and criminality we are all battling. Both have acted promptly, intelligently, and in spite of great individual risk to bring remedy and relief.

The Queen, the Lords of the Admiralty, the Lord Mayor of London, and the Privy Council are largely to blame for the situation and have exercised the most direct control over the members of the Bar Associations and the Banking Cartels responsible for the wrongs we and so many other nations have suffered for the past hundred years.

The Secretary of the Treasury, Jacob Joseph Lew, was born and bred and educated as a member of the banking cabals that are directly and absolutely responsible for the lawlessness and corruption in our midst. He may plead that he “dodged the bullet” and is not “really” responsible, as his predecessors “released” the Office of The Postmaster General and “abandoned” it some years ago, however, trusteeship is a stubborn and time-honored identity under Roman Civil Law and Common Law, both. He who continues to own, operate, and dispose of trust assets remains the Trustee of those assets which continue to belong to others, despite what he calls himself, despite the name of the office he holds, and despite any obfuscation otherwise. Mr. Lew inherited the responsibility along with the assets.

These three individuals are supposed to work together to ensure peace, justice, and smooth administration of governmental services throughout the united States of America. Pope Francis is putting up a determined fight in favor of these aims, the Queen and her Counselors have failed in every respect, and the Secretary of the Treasury is either out to lunch or recklessly endangering all three.

Second, there are the “governments” of the various nations, all of them now acting as commercial corporations chartered by the Holy See, or since 1929, the Vatican. There are many kinds and styles of governments and many more governments than we typically think of. There are “governmental services corporations” that are supposed to be administering Republics (like ours), there are others that administer legislative democracies (like the United States of America (Minor)—a consortium of “American States” more often thought of as “federal territories and possessions”), and others that administer oligarchies (like the United Nations City State or the Municipal Government of Washington, DC, which is also an independent, international City State like Vatican City or the Inner City of London).

All of these entities are corporations just like any other commercial corporation on earth. They all have corporate charters. They are all obligated to function lawfully and for the public good, or their charters can be pulled and their assets liquidated to pay their creditors.

At “First Base” you learned the answer to— “Who is doing all this damage to us?” — three foreign nations who are all supposed to be our good friends: the United States of America (Minor), the Municipal Government of Washington, DC, and the United Nations City State.

They are operating in collusion with two giant international banking cartels, the “Federal Reserve” and the “International Monetary Fund” to plunder and control the national trusts of most of Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan.

The original Federal Reserve operated the “Federal Reserve System” and that in turn operated the United States of America, Inc. The International Monetary Fund operated (and still operates) the UNITED STATES, INC. And now, most recently, the United Nations has allowed yet another version of the parasite known as the FEDERAL RESERVE to incorporate under its City State auspices and spawn a new version of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. to replace the old, bankrupted United States of America, Inc. that finally settled its bankruptcy as of July 1, 2013.

The Nightmare Scenario has Broke Loose!

From A Nation Beguiled –

“The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy America’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of this plight.” JFK

Right before his death John F. Kennedy tried to warn the people of America about the highly secretive group known as the Illuminati but sadly he never got the chance because his assassination followed shortly there after…

In truth this group has had their tentacles in almost every aspect of our lives in some way shape or form and they sit in the highest levels of governments secretly implementing their plans of mass human slaughter while the world watches the mainstream media report lies and lives their lives under the normalcy bias.

Their campaign to eliminate “useless eaters” (that’s you and I) on behalf of the planet’s “privileged ruling elite” is now taking a more ravenous toll as global population levels rise.

It is no secret, then, that the elite want millions dead, and no longer do they hid it, no, it’s out in the open and they are proud of their stance and any numb-nut who denies it, well, they can just rest in their stupidity.

The Truth is We Have Already Been Warned….

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may… actually had a separation [sic] of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” – George Washington, from a letter that he wrote on October 24, 1798, which can be found in the Library of Congress.

“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.”

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President and U.S. Senator, from a speech given on May 27, 1836

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, in his Autobiography, 1913 (Appendix B)

“A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, 1913

– The 20 Goals of the Illuminati –
1.To establish a One World Government/New World Order with a unified church and monetary system under their direction. Many organizations have formed leading us to become globally minded and more likely to accept a form of dictatorship. Here are a few examples of such globally minded organizations:

The World Trade Organization, according to Encyclopedia Britannica is an international organization established to supervise and liberalize world trade. In other words it monitors and enforces rules governing global trade.

The United Nations, according to Wikipedia, is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights and achieving world peace. The UN currently has 192 member states.

The World Bank, according to the World Bank website, “It is a vital source that offers financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. They are not a bank in the common sense. They are made up of two unique development institutions owned by 185 member countries—the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). Each institution plays a different but collaborative role to advance the vision of an inclusive and sustainable globalization.”

The World Church Council – The WCC brings together 349 churches, denominations and church fellowships in more than 110 countries and territories throughout the world, representing over 560 million Christians and including most of the world’s Orthodox churches, scores of Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist and Reformed churches, as well as many United and Independent churches. It is a community of churches on the way to visible unity in one faith and one eucharistic fellowship, expressed in worship and in common life in Christ. It seeks to advance towards this unity…(Think One World Religion)

2.To bring about the utter obliteration of all national identity and national pride, which was a primary consideration if the concept of a One World Government was to work. This is why the IRS is targeting the “Tea Party” patriots.
3.To engineer and bring about the destruction of religion, and more specifically the Christian Religion. Their sole purpose is to bring about a world religion, be it the Vatican, Islam, or New Age. That part is unknown.
4.To establish the ability to control every person through means of mind control and what Zbignew Brzezinski called techonotronics, which would create human-like robots and a system of terror.
5.To bring about the end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated electric power in what they call “the post-industrial zero-growth society”….

Vatican Calls For Central World Bank –

From WorldTruthTV.com –

The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises.

A major document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should be music to the ears of the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

The 18-page document, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority,” was at times very specific, calling, for example, for taxation measures on financial transactions.

“The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said.

It condemned what it called “the idolatry of the market” as well as a “neo-liberal thinking” that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems.

“In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviors like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale,” it said, adding that world economics needed an “ethic of solidarity” among rich and poor nations.

“If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid,” it said.

It called for the establishment of “a supranational authority” with worldwide scope and “universal jurisdiction” to guide economic policies and decisions.

Such an authority should start with the United Nations as its reference point but later become independent and be endowed with the power to see to it that developed countries were not allowed to wield “excessive power over the weaker countries.”

Vatican Signals More Tolerance Toward Gays and Remarriage

By Elisabtta Povoledo – NewYorkTimes.com –

VATICAN CITY — An important meeting of bishops at the Vatican used remarkably conciliatory language on Monday toward gay and divorced Catholics, signaling a possible easing of the church’s rigid attitudes on homosexuality and the sanctity of marriage.

The gathering of bishops from around the world called on pastors to recognize, among other things, the “positive aspects of civil unions and cohabitation.”

The meeting, or synod, was called by Pope Francis to discuss issues related to the family in contemporary society. A report was given on Monday of the main considerations under debate in the first week of the two-week gathering.

The report appeared to reflect the more tolerant and inclusive direction Francis has sought to take the church since he was chosen to succeed the far more doctrinaire Benedict XVI more than 18 months ago.

Pope Francis’ surprising comments came in a lengthy interview in which he criticized the church for putting dogma before love, and for prioritizing moral doctrines over serving the poor and marginalized.

Pope Francis said that the Roman Catholic church had grown “obsessed” with preaching about abortion, gay marriage and contraception in his most extensive and revealing interview since he was elected in March.

A final document will be issued by the synod next week. Though the gathering is unlikely to change church doctrine, its conversation will set — and potentially change — both the tone and the practice of the faith in parishes around the world.

Signaling the direction they are heading, the bishops called for a more merciful approach toward the faithful who stray from the Catholic ideal, citing the need for “courageous pastoral choices” to reflect the current plurality of relationships outside the traditional family model.

They urged pastors, for instance, to be more welcoming to gays, who have “gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community.” And it called on pastors to treat divorced Catholics who have remarried civilly with respect, “avoiding any language or behavior that might make them feel discriminated against.”

The document, however, left open to further debate the contentious question of whether they might receive communion, merely expounding the contrasting positions on the extremely sensitive issue.

“The Church turns respectfully to those who participate in her life in an incomplete and imperfect way, appreciating the positive values they contain rather than their limitations and shortcoming,” the bishops said.
