It's been a while since I have commented on Bannon, as he has been keeping himself and his team pretty quiet behind the scenes. But now it turns out that the Vatican is condemning Steve "Darth Vader" Bannon as promoting "apocalyptic geopolitics." Hmmm Once more into the ... hall of mirrors. I have made much of the Trump administration's stable of Jesuit trained monkeys, so how can one reconcile this seeming paradox? By now, this should be pretty damn easy if one is not a neophyte. Here, we are talking about the principle of 'controlled opposition" and counter-intelligence practices, cynically using the veil of religion, that we have been discussing on the forum going back to ... uhmmm ... Roman times, Imperial Rome that is. Separately, I have discussed the Futurist End Times scenario, spawned by the Jesuits about 500 years ago, and then transferred conveniently into the so-called evangelical and Pentecostal movement for the viral vector. And most recently, I have discussed how the OT prophets were an institution of political propagandists, preparing the way for the new order of the day. It's all coming to pass, again, and now the legacy of Imperial Rome, the Vatican is distancing itself from what it created. A close confidant of Pope Francis, writing Thursday in a Vatican-approved magazine, has condemned White House chief strategist Steve Bannon as a supporter of "Christian fundamentalism" and "apocalyptic geopolitics." In a damning article, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, editor of the influential Jesuit journal La Civilità Cattolica, took aim at conservative religious support for President Donald Trump, accusing activists of promoting a "xenophobic and Islamophobic vision that wants walls and purifying deportations." ... In a story entitled "Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism: A Surprising Ecumenism," Spadaro criticized the way some American evangelicals and their Roman Catholic supporters mix religion and politics, saying they demonized opponents and promoted a "theocratic type of state." He added that their vision was "not too far apart" from Islamic fundamentalism. The article — which was co-written by a Presbyterian pastor, the Rev. Marcelo Figueroa, who is editor of the Argentine edition of the Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano — was published just days after evangelical leaders met Trump in the Oval Office and laid their hands on him in prayer. ... http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/v...-steve-bannon-apocalyptic-geopolitics-n783296 Note that a Presbyterian pastor is editor of the Vatican's Argentine edition of L'Osservatore Romano. My how times have ecumenically changed.
