    Default Vatican calls for global public authority and a central world bank

    The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a global public authority and a central world bank to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises.

    The document from the Vaticans Justice and Peace department should please the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

    Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority, was at times very specific, calling, for example, for taxation measures on financial transactions. The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence, it said.

    It condemned what it called the idolatry of the market as well as a neo-liberal thinking that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems. In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviours like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale, it said, adding that world economics needed an ethic of solidarity among rich and poor nations.

    If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid, it said.

    It called for the establishment of a supranational authority with worldwide scope and universal jurisdiction to guide economic policies and decisions.

    Asked at a news conference if the document could become a manifesto for the movement of the indignant ones, who have criticised global economic policies, Cardinal Peter Turkson, head of the Vaticans Justice and Peace department, said: The people on Wall Street need to sit down and go through a process of discernment and see whether their role managing the finances of the world is actually serving the interests of humanity and the common good. We are calling for all these bodies and organisations to sit down and do a little bit of re-thinking.

    Well, thank God we have the Vatican to help us out of our financial problems.

    The mark of the beast shouldn't be too far behind then. "One world government with one world bank"....what stupid fucking idea. To even verbalize such a thing shows how fucked in the head the vatican is.

    not at all true. One could argue that the one world bank already exists (the IMF). And one well run central bank would not be the worst idea in the world. The Vatican's plan would work beautifully in a world in which people get along. Sadly, we don't live in that place.

    Hence the reason God warns of this as a sign of the Devil trying to align the masses against him. A chip in humans would destroy crime, illegal immigration, kidnapping, drug trade, all illegal monetary transactions, etc. but that would of course take away our freewill and in the hands of this "one world government", anyone who believes in God after a certain date could be destroyed as well.
    Some interesting things in the book of Revelations but some very scary propostions as well.

    Don't happen to have a Bible handy and obviously that is paraphrased so I will have to get the actual Scriptures in relation to these topics later.

    i know the book rather well. I just wonder how you read an article from the church saying that a central bank would be a good idea and take that to mean that we'll all have chips put into us to trace our actions.

    Simply, a single world government is who will be the ones to administer "the mark of the beast". Being that the Vatican is the new Roman empire, I should think you would connect the dots quite simply...

    How about bringing back the Templars Banking system. Oh wait isnt that Goldman-Sachs...lol
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    I think that people are very mistaken about the Vatican being the revived Roman Empire. That idea simply does not hold up against scripture and the word of Jesus Christ.
    I might argue though that the European Union could very well be the revived Roman Empire spoken of in the Book of Revelation.

    The Catholic Church's official policy for years on child abuse was "let's just move the priest to another parish".

    Having the Vatican with anything to do with the world financial system is a joke. I think they lost any moral authority they had a LONG time ago.
