Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, the "Political Arm" of the Pope -- Sprout of the Upper Classes Who Wants to be Rid of the Odor of His Origins

Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, the "politiacal arm" of the Pope. "For decades he has labored ceaselessly in the Vatican till the election of Pope Francis. The name Sorondo is still widely known in Argentina because of his father and grandfather.
(Rome) Archbishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, officially the Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences, is the "political arm" of Pope Francis. He is responsible for a new ambiguity and accomodation in matters of life, culture of death and sterilization as a solution to environmental problems and climate change. The policy had already been laid before the pope's political adviser. He comes from the Argentine upper class. His grandfather was Argentine Interior Minister and his father a well-known political journalist. Even now accusations have been voiced that the pope's political adviser does not live like a priest, since he "never celebrates Holy Mass, and neither does he pray the breviary," says InfoVaticana .

Sprout of the Argentine upper class: learning politics already in the cradle

He was born in Argentina at the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, on 1942, as the son of a family of the upper class, and grew up in a strongly intellectual environment. His mother, Amalia Moreno Bunge, died when he was only eight years old. At the age of 26, he was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires in 1968. After his ordination, he went to Italy, where he studied philosophy at the Dominican University of Angelicum and at the University of Perugia .

Roberto Mattei: After the latest scandals, we demand the resignation of Archbishop Paglia and Bishop Sanchez Sorondo

Vincenzo Paglia (left), President of the Pontifical Academy for Life (Formerly Family Minister of the Holy See), gave a lecture on the politician Marco Pannella, one of the most disgraceful church enemies; Curia bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo (right) invited Paul Ehrlich, an overpopulation and abortionist ideologist, to the Vatican. What is going on in the Catholic Church when the most intimate confidants of the Pope celebrate abortion ideologues, and when Ehrlich himself says he is "electrified" by the direction Pope Francis is taking the Church?

By Roberto de Mattei *
Among the most recent events, which have caused upset among Catholics, two make for special attention.The first incident is the immense praise for Marco Pannella by the Archbishop of Verona, Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life . The occasion was the posthumous presentation of Pannella autobiography at the headquarters of the Radical Party in Rome: "Lo Spirito di Marco ci aiuti a vivere in quella stessa direzione " (The Spirit of Marco help us to live in the same way).
The second incident is the presentation by Dr. Paul Ehrlich, a well-known representative of today's "culture of death", which he was able to hold at the invitation of the Roman Catholic, Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, in the Vatican. The American biologist is connected with Marco Pannella,  and both the deceased leader of the Radical Party like Ehrlich, is an abortion advocate and a declared enemy of the Catholic Church. While Mgr. Paglia more or less gave spontaneous explanations as in delirium, Sanchez Sorondo, in his capacity as chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, made an official invitation to Ehrlich.
Sanchez Sorondo, like Paglia, is a confidant of Pope Francis, and although "thousands of people have asked Francis to end this scandal, it goes on," complained Maria Madise of Voice of the Family. More than 10,000 signatures had been sent by the Catholic Organization of the United States to Pope Francis, with a request to prevent the participation of Ehrlich in the Vatican.
In a joint press release, the Voice of Family , LifeSiteNews , the Lepanto Foundation and Famiglia Domani have emphasized that Ehrlich is one of the most famous Neo-Malthusian abortion representatives. In 1968 he published the bestseller The Population Bomb. He prophesied to mankind a cataclysmic future dominated by overpopulation and demanded compulsory measures for birth control in order to avert them.
Although his predictions did not occur and had even colossally disregarded the facts, Ehrlich continues to assiduously demand selective abortion and mass sterilization as a legitimate means of population control. Ehrlich's ideas have been implemented in the People's Republic of China, India, Kenya and other states with governmental authority, making him responsible for the millions of deaths of those unborn.
In an interview by Mara Hvistendahl of 2011, Ehrlich defended selective abortion by saying, "It would be a good idea to leave the people the right to make decisions so that they have only a few children and only those who want them." The determination of the sex of the born children by abortion and even the killing born children is better for women, says Ehrlich, than the fate that she would expect in an overpopulated world.
In an article published in 2015, Ehrlich attacked the Catholic faith as "dangerous", because it opposes the contraceptive mentality. In the same year, he openly criticized the encyclical of Laudato si by Pope Francis, because he made passages against the birth control.
In 2014 he said:
"The Pope and many bishops represent a real evil and are part of the backward forces of the planet, which I believe are primarily interested in preserving their power."
John Henry Westen, the editor-in-chief of LifeSiteNews , wrote that Pope Francis, by not attacking Ehrlich, "does not follow his duty to protect the faith entrusted to the Church by Christ." Westen added:
"In an interview, Ehrlich told us that he was 'electrified' by the direction that Pope Francis is giving to the Catholic Church."
The invitation of Ehrlich to the Vatican, therefore, represents a scandal which increases the already existing confusion in the Church. Perhaps Monsignor Sanchez Sorondo thinks of Ehrlich what Msgr. Paglia said about Marco Pannella:
"He is a man of great spirituality (...) His death is a great loss to our country (...) His mind blows on ... He was the stimulus of a more beautiful life, not only for Italy, but for our whole world, the more Because every man needs to know how to speak (...) I wish that the spirit of Marco might help us live in the same way. "
All quotes can be checked on Youtube.
Some Catholic associations and media have rightly demanded the resignation of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia from his office as President of the Pontifical Academy for Life and as Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Institute John Paul II for Studies on Marriage and the Family. For the same reasons, we also demand the resignation of Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo from his office as Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences .

We Now Know Who Pope Francis is Voting For in the Next US Presidential Election

(Rome) The officially preferred the Vatican political current is to the far left. The recent confirmation delivers the invitation of Senator Bernie Sanders in the Vatican. Sanders is the challenger to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. He was invited, and he alone of all the presidential candidates by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, the actual executive arm of papal policy

The social (istic)  perspective on the world

Arranger in the background is Curia Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo. Sanchez Sorondo already threaded the change of course in terms of UN post-Millennium Development Goals and climate change. The prerequisite is that the Vatican gives up its opposition to the neo-Malthusian population policy. A requirement that Pope Francis in September 2013 in an interview with the Roman Jesuit journal Civilta Cattolica unofficially announced, and Sanchez Sorondo actively converts into concrete policy coin (see his interview about the alleged link between abortion and climate change ).
In terms of the socio-political (abortion, gender ideology)  Sanders represents the same positions as Clinton, and these are far removed from those of the Catholic Church. Where Clinton and Sanders differ most clearly is in the area of ​​social and economic policies. That is thew key to the Vatican's  invitation, while his abortion advocacy is no longer an obstacle under Pope Francis.
Next week Bernie Sanders will fly to Rome, although the decisive phase of the pre-selection battle is taking place  in the US. He is to participate in a meeting of the Vatican Pontifical Academy of Social SciencesThe reason for the meeting are the anniversaries of two social encyclicals: 25 years of the encyclical Centesismus annus and 125 years of the encyclical Rerum Novarum .
The 1891 by Pope Leo XIII. published encyclical Rerum Novarum , the first social encyclical of the Church's history and is considered the "mother of all social encyclicals". Centesimus annus was published in 1991 under Pope John Paul II. for  its 100th anniversary, which was a response to the collapse of the communist dictatorship in the Soviet bloc.

Who Pope Francis would have liked as the 45th President of the USA

How the US public sees the relationship between Pope Francis and Bernie Sanders
Sanders is the only one of five official US presidential candidates, who was invited to the Vatican. Who Pope Francis would like to see in person as the 45th President of the United States at the White House, is thus brought to expression in this unveiling. Whether such an open declaration and taking sides is good for the Church, is an entirely different matter.
The preference is of a non-confessional nature. Among the five remaining candidates, there is not a Catholic, only a former Catholic, and that's not Sanders. On the Republican side, the three candidates still in the race: Donald Trump is Presbyterian, Ted Cruz, a Southern Baptist and John Kasich, who was been baptized as a Catholic, is today an Anglicans. Hillary Clinton from the Democrats is Methodist, her challenger Bernie Sanders is a Jew. Sanders would be the first Jewish state and government chief in US history.

Lesbos and the "democratic socialist"

The Vatican meeting will be held on 15-16 April. Details are not yet known. There is no provision, says Vatican Radio that Sanders makes a speech. The meeting is therefore likely to be only the external occasion for a private meeting with Pope Francis. The coincidence between Sanders and the pope is expected to take place on Friday, because on Saturday, Francis will be flying on to the Greek island of Lesbos . Also, in terms of immigration policy, the Catholic Church leader and US Senator from Vermont are among all presidential candidates, the closest.
Sanders describes himself as a " democratic socialist " and a "great supporter of the Pope". In the primary campaign for the Democratic nomination, he moved back to being  favored against Clinton. The race is not yet decided.
To the biggest Italian daily Corriere della Sera. Curia Bishop Sanchez Sorondo explained the Sanders-invitation with the words, "because he shows a real interest in the study of papal documents."  During the election campaign for the most powerful political office in the world that is not enough to justify an obvious partisanship. He had "seen no other candidates who quote the Pope in their election campaign," said Sanchez Sorondo, who comes from Argentina with Pope Francis and is one of the closest confidants of Pope.

Duel Pope - Donald Trump

However, the other candidate, Sanders opponent Clinton, has already tried to avail herself with Pope Francis for their election campaign.
It was, however, a remote duel between Donald Trump, the leading candidate of the Republicans, and the Pope on February 18. The reason was  immigration policy. [He was silent during the Same-sex marriage dispute in Italy.] During his visit to Mexico, Francis had mixed into politics during his visit to the  border fence in the US and  dueled with Trump for the first time in the local election campaign. With the exclusive invitation for Sanders in the Vatican, it is clear in any case that Pope Francis least favors Donald Trump on the popularity scale to Bernie Sanders.
This is clearly too much of political partisanship and too much of the over-emphasis on his person over the Office, which is irritating to high Vatican representatives.
At the Vatican conference alongside other prominent Sanders Links politicians will take part, including the presidents of Ecuador and Bolivia. The latter gave Pope Francis in July 2014, a sickle-and-hammer-cross , which was seen by many Catholics as distasteful, if not blasphemous.

Participants Jeffrey Sachs: climate change and population reduction

For $ 25.90: Francis and Sanders 2016
Among the conference participants next week will also be Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute of Columbia University and as personal adviser to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. His role sounds more meaningful: as Jeffrey Sachs is a leading proponent of the theory of human-inflicted climate change, on which  the current world climate policy is based. He is also a representative of the neo-Malthusian theory, which calls for a radical population reduction. Nevertheless, he managed to with the influence of Sanchez Sorondo, to be appointed by Pope Francis as a member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. An appointment in the field of "non-negotiable values" (Benedict XVI.) shows that a paradigm shift has occurred.

Weight of Catholic voters - remodeling the church in the United States

In terms of weight (number, organization and money) the German Bishops 'Conference and the US Bishops' Conference, form the two antipodes of this pontificate. The German Bishops' Conference wants Francis to win,  the US wants him to remodeling. His meddling in the US election campaign also has to do with it.
Catholics account for nearly one quarter of the US electorate. If you count the former Catholics (like John Kasich) to even a third. Catholics in the US,  traditionally vote democratic for historical reasons.That changed under the Republican US President Ronald Reagan (1981-1989). In the latest polls,  the Catholic electorate showed transitions to being deeply divided. The unilateral papal partisanship that differs strikingly from the position of the US episcopate,  contains all the elements within itself to sharpen this division.

Fight Against Human Trafficking, Fight for Gender-Ideology -- From One the Vatican Distances Itself, the Other Not

2014: Bishop Sorondo With Andrew Forrest (2.v.I.) at
the Founding of the Global Freedom Network in Vatican
(Rome) The Vatican has ended its cooperation in the Global Freedom NetworkOne of the new influential men in the Vatican, the Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo no longer sits on the board of the network against human trafficking and forced labor. The backgrounds for the withdrawal are unclear. The clear step has astonished because  the distancing  publicly and urgently demanded by Catholics had not occurred till now.
"We will not be exploited," said Vatican Insider citing Msgr.Sorondo, Secretary of the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences. The statement surprised: Global Freedom Network was founded on March 17, 2014 as a joint venture between the Foundation Walk Free of Australian billionaire Andrew Forrest and the Holy See. At that time Pope Francis signed at the Vatican to found this interfaith network against human trafficking and forced labor, in which there were also prominent personalities of other world religions involved. The Pope's confidant, Sorondo has sat on the board of Global Freedom Network sine, which aims to sensitize the religious communities of the world against the "new forms of slavery" such as "prostitution, forced labor, organ trafficking, and trafficking in human beings". Other objectives include "promoting fair and ethical trade ', assistance to victims and survivors, pressure on governments and parliaments to raise public awareness and fund-raising for the implementation of  objectives.
Last December, representatives of different religions gathered with Pope Francis at the Vatican, including Justin Welby, the Anglican Bishop of Canterbury, as well as the representatives of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. Global Freedom Network bad invited them to sign a joint declaration to end "modern slavery" in a media intensive event. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon sent a message of greeting for support.

Distancing Because of "Simplistic" perspective?

Global Freedom Network against human trafficking and forced labor
Andrew Forrest operates iron ore mines in Australia, with which he made his billion-dollar fortune. His group is one in the northwest of the country with 88,000 square kilometers, an area the size of Austria.
On July 26, charges against him were raised in Australia: "We have someone who has a lot of money, has access to global power, who can really something happen, but if his understanding of the problem is so superficial, so undemanding, then  this power, these funds will not used as they should," Anne Gallagher said in the Australian ABC television.
The Australian lawyer, Gallagher was called in 2012 the "world's leading legal expert on human trafficking" by the US State Department. In 1987 she completed her studies in Law, made ​​her court internship and acquired in 1991 a Master in International Law. From 1992-2003 she worked as a UN official and as such was 1998-2002 consultant of Mary Robinson, the High Commissioner of the United Nations for Human Rights (UNHCHR).Since 2003, self-employed, Gallagher has been working under the State aid program AusAID Australian Development and External Adviser of the United Nations. A woman who, although hardly any citizens know her, carries weight at the international level of decisions.
Forrest is Australia's largest private donor to charitable causes. The accusation of Gallagher against him remains very vague, yet her criticism is unusual.  The alleged simplistic view of a party is usually not a reason for a disjointed public criticism or even the termination of cooperation.

Crisis  Forrest's Companies Fuels Criticism

Anne Gallagher's criticism in the public television of Australia
Forrest's company has experienced heavy losses in recent years. The declining revenues are also coupled with its foundations because charitable donations plummeted. There is criticism that Gallagher has allowed the troubled company to plunge deeper into crisis. The market reacted sensitively.
According Curial Archbishop Sorondo, the Holy See had already withdrawn "some time ago" from the network."Forrest has every right to make money, but not to use the Pope for it," said the Argentine Curia Bishop, without making any further details on this distancing. Both Gallagher and Sorondo are not clear what is alleged the Australian entrepreneur Forrest has done to fuel the crisis of his company (Gallagher) and terminate the cooperation (Sorondo).
Sorondo no longer appears on the board of Global Freedom Network. He put expressly  noted that this was in any case never convened during his membership.
Msgr. Sorondo is regarded as an "organizer" of rapprochement between the UN and the Catholic Church when it comes to the fight against manmade global warming. Sorondo had organized, prior to the publication of the Eco-Encyclical Laudato Si a meeting at the Vatican, which was opened by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. A few days ago he received 70 leftist mayors and other politicians in the Vatican to discuss the fight against man-made global warming and new forms of slavery.

Despite Promotion of Gender Ideology in the Name of Pope Francis There's no Distancing

Pope Francis Poses for Children's Book Series, Which Disseminates Gender-Ideology to Young Children 
The distancing of Global Freedom Network , shows that the narrow circle around Pope Francis knows how to be sensitive, and knows how to draw a clear line and make it known publicly. Although the reasons for this distancing are unclear, it is done. No distancing  from a children's book series which will appear in the name of Pope Francis  for  gender ideology. The Foundation Scholas Occurrentes, a worldwide network of schools was established on the initiative of Pope Francis in August 2013 at the Vatican. The Argentine newspaper Clarín have been publishing since spring 2015 in cooperation with the Pope Foundation in Spanish, the children's book series, "With Francis at my side." The children's stories, which are now widely circulated in Spain, advertise homosexuality, transexuality and "new family forms"  on behalf of the Pope. The children's book series is promoted with the image of Pope Francis, it was photographed at the Vatican.
The driving force behind the establishment of the foundation Scholas Occurrentes was also the Argentine Archbishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo. The establishment took place in a ballroom  run by Sorondo's Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Both Scholas Occurrentes and the Vatican wash their hands in innocence. Nobody wants to have known something or anything to do with the contents of the children's book series. A distancing has not taken place until today, although the book series coincides with Pope Francis' image, stabbing Catholic initiatives in the back with the portrait, trying to clarify the aims of  gender ideology and roll back their influence.
The newspaper publisher  Clarín continues, meanwhile, negotiations with other newspaper publishers to translate the children's books into other languages ​​and spread them to other countries.
