1/“Whatever changes the people had wanted from the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council were, it seemed, formless, silent, lost in the bustle of a busy church frozen in a medieval mind. Instead, after 400 years without a council of reform, >…
2/“the kinds of changes the people had expected from this council lay yet in Rome, drying in wet ink there and largely ignored here.”
3/“Oh, a few churches redesigned their confession boxes and a few more took down the altar rails, but really, other than that and the move to the vernacular in all liturgical events — nothing much did happen. Most of the changes were window dressing.”

I worked for the NYPD for a summer as a young woman. I’m the daughter of a NYPD bias. I have also worked closely w/nuns, & I followed BXVI sh*tty deeply misogynist Apostolic Visitation in 2014. 1/…
2/The institution Roman Catholic Church is in great part a transnational crime syndicate. To clutch one’s pearls over nuns w/bongs is quiet naive. The prelates literally traffic children & cover it up. They just lost $17 million in the #Vatican!
3/Nuns are pretty neat, generally. And communities of nuns are rarely unaccustomed to being dogged by the bishops in charge of the dioceses in which they operate & live.
This degenerate prelate , Olson, has been getting lousy press for a few days & suddenly a snitch turns up>

As some of us celebrate the #Soviet victory over Nazism, let us remember the filthy role of the Canadian state, before, during and after #WWII. Prime Minister King, a vicious anti-Semite, was the most pro-appeasement leader in the British Empire, and was fond of Hitler Image
The Canadian state's interest in WWII was to use the war to whip up #nationalism and stamp out #socialist organizing at home, and to defend British #imperialism abroad. The Canadian state was happy to take on a founder of the Nazi Party, Otto #Strasser, as a political advisor. Image
Strasser's plan was to stage a #coup, so that the #Allies could cut a deal with the 'good Nazis.' But Strasser was a fraud, and only reluctantly, when no 'good Nazis' could be found to cut a deal with, did the Allies invade. The cream of the Nazi army was defeated by the #Soviets Image

There is a controversial HUGE secret hidden in plain sight all around the world.

But as much artifacts that could be was carted away and hidden beneath places like the #Smithsonian institute & the #vatican.
[they] hid the traces of GIANTS from us as much as possible.
Taking exhaustive measures by removing bones from "indian" mounds, relics, artifacts, texts and countless archaeological relics of these GIANTS to cover up the massive truth of our real past.

Day 409 of the war and here's the daily thread for Saturday.

A quiet start to the weekend, but #Russia's aggression continues as they try to claim the small #Donetsk towns of #Bakhmut #Mariinka and #Avdiivka.

All the news here, throughout the day in one handy place⬇️
Quite a lot of news again yesterday from "leaked" NATO docs, #Russia land-mining, the weakening of the ruble, Russians sabotaging jets for #Ukraine, Occupiers eating endangered animals and loads of #RussiaOnFire incidents

I think I was one of the first western journalists to report this, the last entry on yesterday's thread, so worth a retweet again this morning.

The worry is #Russia often accuses others of what it does itself.

1/19 “The most brutal crimes are committed by #Chechens. Inhuman cruelty is not a Russian tradition". The leader of the #Vatican Jorge Mario Bergoglio (aka Francis, aka #Pope of Rome) made a statement shocking in its falsity and abomination.
2/19 In an interview with #America Magazine, the Jesuit announced that, it turns out, "the most brutal crimes in #Ukraine are committed by #Chechens and Buryats, because inhuman cruelty is not a #Russian tradition."
3/19 At the same time, the #Catholic priest explained his unwillingness to directly accuse #Russia of invading #Ukraine by the fact that it is "already clear." And he tries "not to specify, so as not to offend ... It is not necessary that I put the name and surname."

The #Vatican's new document today for the ongoing synod process gives a lot of attention to the role of women in the church, including calls for women's ordination as priests. Short thread:
The text, which summarizes reports from Catholics in places across the world, includes some rather frank remarks. From the Holy Land:

“In a Church where almost all decision-makers are men, there are few spaces where women can make their voices heard."
From Korea:

“Despite the great participation of women in various Church activities, they are often excluded from key decision-making processes."

1/ How many other bishops have been sanctioned for allegations presumably proved credible? What #Vatican genius dreamed this up? After the disastrous handling of the Theodore McCarrick (a monster if there ever was one) case, has the #HolySee learned nothing about transparency?
2/ This is rank clericalism at its worst. But it also reflects a widespread failure among many Vatican officials to understand basic principles of rule of law.
3/ Many clerics dismiss concern for rule of law as an "Anglo-Saxon" obsession. But rule of law is directly derived from principles of natural law - about which Catholic clerics (or at least those who aren't slaves to sociology and psychology) should know something about.

#COVID19 vaccine victims in Italy call for parliamentary investigation… #VaccineDeaths #vaccineinjuries @lanuovaBQ @RicCascioli
The committee — Ascoltami [Listen to Me] — unites 1,800 victims of the anti-Covid vaccine that was supposed to be safe but instead is “disabling thousands of ‘invisible’ victims in Italy who struggle with cardiovascular and neurological problems.”
“Talking about adverse effects from vaccines is no longer taboo, even if the problem, which is enormous, remains underestimated by the State. [The vax] was practically forced by means of blackmail giving rise to the consequent abandonment of patients” who suffered adverse effects

The Surp Pırgiç Church in Karaköy, #Istanbul is home to a unique ceremony that takes place once a year. The church was the first #Armenian Catholic church to be consecrated in the Ottoman Empire after the Armenian Catholic millet was recognised by Sultan Mahmud II in 1830.#Thread Image
When the church was first opened in 1834, Istanbul was suffering from a major plague outbreak. A painting of the Virgin Mary & Baby Jesus that was sent to the church as an inaugural gift from the #Vatican was paraded around the streets of Istanbul to ward off the plague. Image
Eventually, as the plague outbreak in the city died down, many attributed this to the miraculous powers of this painting in #SurpPırgiç. Sultan Mahmud II took note of this and gifted a diamond brooch to the church and its congregation. Image
