The pope, a bishop, and the scandal of wealth

Oct 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

We're used to bishops being summoned to the Vatican to defend their orthodoxy or to be reminded of their vows of obedience.

Some Catholics make their own troubles.
The Church became political and corrupt under John Paul II
And when they appointed the man who was the architect of the pedophile priest scandal as pope, Benedict..They showed a grave lack of morality.
Francis has the personality and a reform agenda that can save the Catholic Church...
But the church can not deny nor evade the sins of it's recent past if it expects to act out it's role

The Catholic Church and devout Catholics are reaping the results of being rejected by the true God of the Bible, Almighty God Jehovah.

All false religions are facing extermination by the power of this world, in the hands of Jesus our reigning King in heaven. Jesus in prophecy is going to use the United Nations very soon to destroy all false religions on this earth, and no one will escape, that is the beginning of the great tribulation that will bring about the war of Armageddon between Almighty God Jehovah and Satan the Devil the god of this world, and his supporters.
Revelation 17
2Corinthians 4:4

The only people who are leaving this earth are the wicked, Proverbs 2:21,22 Revelation 22:15

The meek and honest hearted worshipers of Jehovah God as his named Jehovah's witnesses will remain to inherit this earth to see it restored to a Paradise of peace and happiness for all men and animals.
Psalm 37:11
Matthew 5:5
Revelation 7:14

Now is the time to start your personal Bible study with Jehovah's witnesses so you can be educated in the requirements of God's heavenly Kingdom Government.
John 17:3

Millions of dollars (billions?) go in and
out of the Catholic Church every year so
why shouldn't this bishop skim a little off for himself?

Churchmen have been doing it for centuries.
Pass the collection plate and take a cut.
That's how the system works.

Good lord, we have churchmen who fly around in
private jets and live like royalty from
all the "love" offerings their flocks mail in.
They wine and dine with kings and presidents.
And the sheeple love them for it.

And Rev. Jim Baker thrilled us all with Tammy Fae and his dogs air conditioned doggie mansion..
Swaggart sinned and a half dozen we could come up with saw prison time for the way they handled their flocks.

It gets so easy to lie when you are convinced that god is on your side.

Wow what a personal view: Hum

Millions gos out to search and rescue lost and stolen people
Millions go out to search for nature and weather actin gon someones behalf because prayers were not answered ABRASKA involved because NOBODY is licensed to pray, You have to ask someone to Pray for you, not yourslef they gie you homework prayer to protect yourself on counsil ritual prayer days to fix you. When those you love to hang with start falling dead, asleep in vehicles dirving and dying, THAT IS your enemy that was causing disruption in yor life and body.

Witness protection colonies of higher or lesser order.

They even pay to Merlin brohterhood, I had been asked to be the first female apprentice in almost 250 years for them Vatican paid to have them enter the city for the girl with the broken neck and head injury, I was supposed to keep the staff with the snake to protecte me anywhere I go, the snake turned and talked I WALKED FAST

Vatcian had MOther Francis St MArys of the Lake of Waunakee Wisc out of Middleton ask to take me to witness protection in Germany with one of 2 groups, to work with 7 Damion omens I was to work with the Asian American Omen they sent away

Or Thats Incredible group Piercing and tattoed skin head Back in 1976 He worked Abraska order for Vatican and self as well. But he was elected to help guide the nature spirits that were helping me.

Many projects they pay for. Their own colleges, trainings to work in public other side of mirror bounty retrievers, flip side of reality warriors, Everything

What were you complaing for cant follow sunday prayer instruction? ask for guidence.

I was wondering,
Do you know if We have evolved or de-evolved?

We have an option for
Abortion, Abortion Pills and Ultra Sounds.

So,
have We de-evolved or evolved? Are We worse then the Spartans or better?

Because We don't even have to wait to see if a Sorcerer wants us to throw a baby off a cliff.

Of course it does. Do you know where it really goes, probably not. Well let me tell you.
The poor, the homeless, hospitals, the elderly, education, those in prison-their families, immigrants, disaster relief, catholic charities just to name a few.
Taking care of those hitting hard times and taking care of those that people like you snubb their noses to. Thats where the money goes. It comes out of the parishoners pockets, not yours or the government.
If these Holy Men steal, it's they that will answer for it.
