Vatican Welcomes Obama Gun Control Proposal
2013 01 21
The Vatican praised President Barack Obama’s proposals for curbing gun violence, saying they are a "step in a right direction."
The Vatican’s chief spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Saturday that 47 religious leaders have appealed to members of the U.S. Congress "to limit firearms that are making society pay an unacceptable price in terms of massacres and senseless deaths."
"I am with them," Lombardi said, in an editorial carried on Vatican Radio, lining up the Vatican’s moral support in favor of firearm limits.
"The initiatives announced by the American administration for limiting and controlling the spread and use of weapons are certainly a step in the right direction," Lombardi said.
Obama is trying to rally support for reinstating a ban on assault weapons and requiring background checks on all gun sales. He faces stiff opposition in the U.S. Congress and from powerful gun lobbies.
Considering that Americans possess "about 300 million firearms," Lombardi said, "people cannot fool themselves that it is enough to limit the number and use (of guns) to impede in the future horrendous massacres like that of Newtown that shook the conscience of America
and world, as well as that of children and adults. "
He was referring to the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school where 20 children and six adults were killed by a sole attacker last month.
"But it would be worse to be satisfied with words" of condemnation alone, Lombardi said. And while massacres are "carried out by unbalanced or hate-driven persons, there is no doubt that they are carried out with firearms," the Vatican spokesman said.
Lombardi renewed Vatican appeals for disarmament and encouragement for measures to fight "the production, commerce and contraband of all types of arms," an industry fueled by "enormous economic and power interests."
DTOM: This from a sick organisation of predators that has tortured and killed millions of innocents, steals and sits on vast troves of wealth, proclaiming this BS, while even now untold millions of children die of malnutrition and disease.
Sure, Americans will give up their arms when the Swiss Guard put down their weapons, go home, start normal jobs and the Pope wanders about free of protection and his vast armed escort - after all he's his god's emissary on Earth, what could possibly happen?
Who do you think called the shots for the JFK assassination, 9/11 and the Sandy Hook massacre? The Jesuits have been working for hundreds of years to destroy the principles the the United States was founded on. Spend some time researching the Jesuits and I'm sure you will agree. Here's a start: The Secret Terrorists.
Although I believe he is disinfo, Jon Phelps is a valuable source of information. Just remember he is 5% wrong.
"The Congress of Vienna was a black conspiracy against Popular Governments at which the ‘high contracting parties’ announced at its close that they had formed a ‘holy alliance.’ This was a cloak under which they masked to deceive the people."
At this point I find it interesting that Henry Kissinger wrote his doctoral dissertation on the Congress of Vienna.
If God were real, then there would be a Devil. Catholics are the closest things to devils I can imagine.
Here is one interpretation for the papacy, the Holy see. Holy is an object or being of adoration often directed upward, to the highness. The word "see" comes from seat, but is identical to the verb to see, which links it to EYE. Therefore, the papacy or the Holy See can be interpreted as an eye high above. What about the all seeing eye? That would explain a lot. The Pope wouldn't be there alone because the all too "lovable" intelligence agency has similar meaning, namely; C - See, I - Eye, A - Pyramid with Capstone. It seems that the high cabal psychopaths have an obsession to leave us hints so that they can later say it was all in the open and no-one noted or objected. Well, I OBJECT!
Yeah take the guns so people cannot shoot at the priests that abuse children!
