Growing Unrest: 'Pope's Marxist bias in U.S. campaign signals new global order'By: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Not only was socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) invited to a conference of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS) on Catholic social teaching and the world situation, he also met personally with Pope Francis.
A secular Jewish atheist, Sanders is not even a member of the Catholic Church. "I am not actively involved with organized religion," Sanders has said. His brother Larry says, "He is quite substantially not religious."
Instead, he is a socialist with strong ties, if not membership in, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the same group that backed Barack Obama's run for president in 2008 and is the U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.
His involvement in the Vatican conference demonstrates how Pope Francis is moving the Roman Catholic Church into the global socialist camp. READ FULL STORY HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: It must be increasingly difficult for the neo-Catholics to keep their heads buried far enough beneath the sandy surface to miss the most dramatic coup d’état in history. They can stay in denial down there all day long if they want, but, as this story helps make obvious, the rest of the world is waking up. The human element of the Catholic Church has fallen. The walls have been breached. The fort has been betrayed. Welcome to the springtime of Vatican II!
