In one of the pretty good Musketeers of the ’70s, Card. Richelieu (Charlton Heston) is hoist on his own petard because of a carte blanche letter he gave to the femme fatale Milady. He does a momentary half face palm and in resignation says to D’Artagnan, “One must be careful of what one writes… and to whom one gives it”. Thus he is in that moment the ironic embodiment of scripta manent.
And so we fast forward into the age of email.
We are hearing a lot about e-pistularum commercia right now.
LifeSite reports that devious agent of Hell George Soros spent 650k to influence bishops when the Pope visited these USA.
Soros (spit here) wanted to try to create a movement against bishops who didn’t line up with the opinions voiced by Francis that Soros favored.
Check it out to see which (non US) Cardinal – a close advisor of Pope Francis – is mentioned and which US bishops are also given some attention.
BREAKING: Leaked e-mails show George Soros paid $650K to influence bishops during Pope’s US visit
August 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Leaked emails through WikiLeaks reveal that billionaire globalist George Soros – one of Hilary Clinton’s top donors – paid $650,000 to influence Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to the USA with a view to “shift[ing] national paradigms and priorities in the run-up to the 2016 presidential campaign.” The funds were allocated in April 2015 and the report on their effectiveness suggests that successful achievements included, “Buy-in of individual bishops to more publicly voice support of economic and racial justice messages in order to begin to create a critical mass of bishops who are aligned with the Pope.”
The monies were granted to two US entities that have been engaged in a long-term project, according to the report, of shifting “the priorities of the US Catholic church.” Grantees were PICO, a faith-based community organizing group, and Faith in Public Life (FPL), a progressive group working in media to promote left-leaning ‘social justice’ causes. Soros has funded left-wing causes the world over and was just found to have been funding an effort to eliminate pro-life laws around the globe.
The post operative report on the funding to influence the papal visit comes in the 2016 report entitled, Review Of 2015 U.S. Opportunities Fund. The Soros group was pleased with the result of their campaign and saw statements by various bishops against presidental candidates who are using “fearmongering” – likely a reference to the GOP lineup, and perhaps Trump specifically – as one outcome of their efforts. “The impact of this work and the relationships it has fostered can be seen in the broad range of religious leaders hitting pointedly back at presidential candidates for their use of fearmongering,” the report said.
Additionally, the summary report says their funding was helpful to counter “anti-gay rhetoric” in the media.
While it is always a bit of a shock to see names in print in these sorts of stories, it isn’t always a huge surprise.
I’ll bet this is just the tip of the iceberg.
