Desmond Tutu and the Vatican Vampire

The Vatican Vampire Preaches Against Terrorism As He Sucks the Oxygen Out of Our Air

Who’s Who [or what?] Desmond Tutu -v- Vatican Vampire

One is a tireless campaigner for human rights and defense of the oppressed. He recently took on the business world: “Do not fly in the face of the poor by allowing the emissions produced by endless and unnecessary business flights to keep growing.”He said, adding that scientists predicted as many as 185 million Africans would die this century because of climate change.

“It is the countries which are the least responsible for causing climate change that are paying the heaviest price,” he said in a video message to a meeting of the World Development Movement lobby group Thursday.

“Climate change is for real. As I speak, famine is increasing, flooding is increasing, as is disease and insecurity globally because of water scarcity,” he said.

“As an African I urgently call on ordinary people in rich countries to act as global citizens, not as isolated consumers. We must listen to our consciences, and not to governments who speak only about economic markets.

“These markets will cease to exist if climate change is allowed to develop to climate chaos,” he added.

“In South Africa we confirmed that if we act on the side of justice we have the power to turn tides,” Tutu said.

“I urge you … to work together with campaigners in the global South and call for strong climate change laws in your own countries in the North, as well as internationally.” (Source: Reuters).

The Grand Vampire of Vatican

The other couldn’t be bothered about mundane things like human rights, family planning, child sex abuse … He has an institution to worry about, and one most toe the official line on the fictitious “War on Terror,” perpetuating the Churches oppression of the poor: “To all those responsible for the life of nations, I wish to state: if you do not fear truth, you need not fear freedom!” [So why don’t you tell us about the 2,000- year-old hoax? What’s there to be afraid of? Freedom from Church?]

When Andrea Rivera, an Italian comedian and TV presenter, spoke out against the Vampire’s stand on current issues, Vatican branded him as a terrorist.

Rivera said: “The Pope says he doesn’t believe in evolution. I agree, in fact the Church has never evolved,” and criticized the Church for refusing to give a Catholic funeral to Piergiorgio Welby, a man who campaigned for euthanasia as he lay paralyzed with muscular dystrophy. He died in December after a doctor agreed to unplug his respirator.

“I can’t stand the fact that the Vatican refused a funeral for Welby but that wasn’t the case for (Chilean dictator Augusto) Pinochet or (Spanish dictator Francisco) Franco,” he said at an open-air concert.

The Vatican’s official newspaper accused Rivera of “terrorism” for criticizing the Pope and warned [Synonym: implied blackmail] his rhetoric could “fuel a return to 1970s-style political violence.”

“This, too, is terrorism. It’s terrorism to launch attacks on the Church,” it said. “It’s terrorism to stoke blind and irrational rage against someone who always speaks in the name of love, love for life and love for man.”

Love, love for life and love for man [literally!]

It’s love for “man” alright—well love for boys, at any rate. The Church has dished out hundreds of millions of dollars to victims of child sex abuse because its bishops, priests, etc. are unable to keep their private parts in their trousers, or skirts for that matter. Money that could have been spent on improving the lives of hundreds of millions of poor Catholic churchgoers throughout the world is instead spend to pay the cost of Catholic clergy’s satanic sex habits. But you can’t preserve an institution by turning its dependent flocks into independent, evolved human beings. Right?

Vatican’s Environmental Snakeoil

What steps has Vatican taken to inform and advise their flocks on climate change and how to cut down on the production of CO2 to reduce the effects of global warming?

Vatican supports “ecotourism” [a euphemistic term used for “eco-terrorism”] we are told. They preach on “traveling with light suitcases.”

“One can choose to be a tourist at odds with the Earth or in favor of it,” said the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People. Tips included taking less luggage to tourist destinations … [O’ Really?]

Vatican’s environmental snakeoil solution doesn’t apply to the glob-trotting Pope, his vast entourage and their vehicles, of course. Since none of them fits in a suitcase, they are all immune! [Get the drift?]

The 4.6-ton Popemobil is built to be transported by Hercules plane and is flown all over the world with the “Wholy Blind.”

The Popemobile most often used by Pope Benedict XVI when traveling abroad is a modified Mercedes-Benz M-Class sport utility vehicle with a special glass-enclosed “room” that has been built into the back of the vehicle. The Pope enters through a rear door and ascends several steps. After the Pope sits in his chair, it is elevated up into the glass “room” by a hydraulic lift, allowing the Pope to be more easily seen. In addition to the driver, there is room for one passenger (usually a security agent) in the front of vehicle. The glass-enclosed rear of the vehicle also has room for two papal aides who can sit in the area in front of the Pope’s elevated chair. The vehicle’s security features include bulletproof glass windows and roof and reinforced, armored side panels and undercarriage. (Source Wikimedia).

Isn’t Sucking the Oxygen Out of Our Air “Terrorism?”
