|Curial Archbishop Sanchez Sorondo, Papal Confidant and|
Architect of the Collaboration Between the
Catholic Church and the UNO
(Rome) on the 21st and 22nd of July, mayors from around the world meet at the Vatican to discuss the global climate and modern slavery. What sounds so politically correct, should be through and through. Initiator of the Mayor Meeting is the Argentine, Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, Curial Archbishop, the chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences . He was the organizer behind the eco-Encyclical Laudato Si who besides creating the contacts next to the dead letter, especially at the United Nations and the "high politics".
He organized ahead of the encyclical, the concept of an international workshop of "climate change and sustainable development" in the Vatican. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will give the opening speech. The keynote speaker will be his right hand, the UNSDNS Director Jeffrey Sachs (UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network). Thus, not only will the representatives who believe in manmade global warming will gather in the Vatican, but also the neo-Malthusians. Not only that, but climate skeptics were systematically removed from the registration list. The Vatican has been (see the promoters of a guided, one-sided meeting in accordance with the UN World Warming thesis Climate skeptics Excluded From Vatican Meeting - Other Opinions Undesirable ).
60 Mayors from Around the World Meeting in the Vatican - are "Exclusively" of the Left
The end of May Sanchez Sorondo gave an inglorious interview in which he meant to identify the causes for the global children's killings by abortion and climate change (see Abortion and Climate Change: In the Vatican someone was persuaded of great nonsense ). The Curial Archbishop has since been an architect of the approach of the Catholic Church to the UN agenda. It's an initiative that he can develop only with the necessary backing from the highest level.
Sanchez Sorondo's next step will be to bring 60 mayors from around the world to the Vatican next week. The cross-section is impressive, and the political positioning of the mayors rather "colorful". Coming will be the leftist Catholic Mayor of Rome, Ignazio Marino; the communist mayor of Milan, Giuliano Pisapia; the left-liberal mayor of Naples, Luigi De Magistris; the left-wing mayor of Madrid, Manuela Carmena (from the beginning of her judicial career a member of the Communist Party of Spain, then without a party, the 2015 top candidate of an electoral alliance between the Socialists and the radical left movement, Podemos); the feminist, Socialist Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris.
Abortion and Homosexualization not an issue - Climate Change and New Slavery Instead
The previously mentioned reveal a political flip side, at least the preference of the parties and their representatives on the left of center are without fear of contacting the extreme left. That these leftists are fighting for abortion as a "human right" and the unconditional legalization of "gay marriage," apparently it does not bother the Vatican. Rather, it is operating by the new closing ranks, as Sanchez Sorondo reaffirmed in an interview and by the climate change agenda.
The invitation of the Mayor of Lampedusa, Giusi Nicolini, seems more to serve a media-compatible appearance. Under Pope Francis it was already apparent since the then inconspicuous Bishop of Agrigento, was raised to Cardinal because Lampedusa is in his diocese. Since the apple does not fall far from the tree, Nicolini is included, who received the mayor's office with 26 percent of the vote, and who belongs to the appropriate political spectrum. She was supported "by a member of the Left Democrats and the little that there is in civil society on the island," said the leftist daily Il Fatto Quotidiano in the arrogant tone of the Jacobins.
Symposium in Cooperation with the UN - Opening Speaker: the Neo-Malthusians Jeffrey Sachs
Sole representative of the German-speaking countries is the Social Democrat Christian Gaebler be who will represent Berlin. Gaebler is, since 2011, Secretary of State for Urban Development and Environment in Berlin and a member of the SPD left wing.
On July 21, they will gather for the conference "Modern Slavery and Climate Change: The Commitment of the Cities", in which Pope Francis is to participate and speak words of greeting. Thus, there are apparently two "interconnected emergencies" to be discussed, "the world's climate and the new forms of slavery". On July 22, the mayors will participate, also in the Vatican, in the symposium "Prosperity, People and Planet: Achieving Sustainable Development in Our Cities," which will take place in cooperation with the UN. The opening speech of the symposium will be given by the aforementioned neo-Malthusian Jeffrey Sachs, who it befalls since he is a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
"The UN is not the Devil, but the Opposite" - Unilateral Invitations
"The United Nations is not the devil, but the opposite," said Sanchez Sorondo to a journalist's question, whether it was not strange that the Vatican was harboring a UN event. "The symposium is not organized by the UN, but by the Pontifical Academies and the UN," said the Archbishop. He meant the two academies, whose chancellor he is. Already Paul VI. has visited the United Nations in New York goes the justification of the Pope's confidant. "In September, Pope Francis will visit them. I do not see where there should be a problem. In the United Nations to recognize the devil, is position typical of the right, that is not the position of the Holy See. The united left gathered in the Vatican would all be happy with this statement.
On the question of other journalists, whether the "exclusive presence of mayors of the left of center is not a sign of partiality," Sanchez Sorondo answered mockingly: "The invitation is open to everyone, if you bring us another mayor, we are grateful. We have no reservations." The one-sided color preference of the loaded mayor guest list suggests the opposite. It should rather have been a selective contact including invitation.
Group Santa Marta
Sanchez Sorondo founded the two events with "urgency". This is, says the Archbishop, also so the "Group Santa Marta" was emphasized. As the Argentine explained it is the closest familiar circle of Pope Francis, one of the groups formed from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences by the Pope and Cardinal Nichols two years ago, which includes police chiefs and bishops belong from around the world and maintain an exchange of views. "We followed their advice, and tried also to gather the mayors together to find a better approach to mitigate climate change and to eliminate new forms of slavery" says Sanchez Sorondo.
The discussion on the 21st and 22nd of July will be held on the basis of the Pope's address to the "social movements" in Bolivia and the eco-Encyclical Laudato Si. Sanchez Sorondo explicitly praised Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi, "who is a Jesuit as Pope Bergoglio is." The Argentinian said: "If you want to understand Pope Francis or Father Lombardi, then check out the movie The Mission on the Jesuit Reductions in Latin America."
On the new slavery the Archbishop said: "We want the mayor to work to put the abuse, exploitation, trafficking in human beings within their towns to an end" and "we want just that using the Mayor for programs for social to develop integration of the victims at national and local level in order to avoid deportation or expulsion to their countries of origin ".
