Benedict XVI, Letter to the Bishops, Priests, Consecrated Persons and Lay Faithful of the Catholic Church in the People’s Republic of China, May 27, 2007:
Benedict XVI paragraph 3: “As I turn my attention towards your People… I am pleased to note how, especially in recent times, it has also moved decisively towards achieving significant goals of socio-economic progress, attracting the interest of the entire world. As my venerable Predecessor Pope John Paul II once said, ‘The Catholic Church for her part regards with respect this impressive thrust and far-sighted planning, and with discretion offers her own contribution in the promotion and defense of the human person, and of the person’s values, spirituality and transcendent vocation. The Church has very much at heart the values and objectives which are of primary importance to modern China: solidarity, peace, social justice, the wise management of the phenomenon of globalization.”
Benedict XVI is here quoting, and making his own, John Paul II’s totally outrageous letter to China which he wrote in 2001. We exposed this outrageous letter of John Paul II in our book. So, like John Paul II, Benedict XVI praises the “social justice” and “far-sighted planning” of “modern” China! Think about that! Social justice in Communist China includes a one-child-per-family policy, which is imposed by forced abortion and contraception. The Chinese Government slaughters millions of children every year, in addition to imprisoning, torturing and murdering Catholics.
To any thinking Catholic, Benedict XVI’s statement is not only outrageous but it is PRO-ABORTION! Benedict the heretic is very well informed about the “social justice” and “planning” policies of modern China. He knows about the forced abortion and contraception. For him to praise China’s “planning” and “social justice” is nothing other than to promote abortion. This statement also reveals that Benedict XVI is probably a satanist or a member of the occult. For the choice of words which John Paul II originally made – which Benedict XVI made sure to implement near the beginning of his letter – includes words that were obviously chosen to pinpoint those areas in which China sins most grievously: social justice and planning. John Paul II and Benedict XVI praise China in those very areas where they sin most notoriously! This shows that Benedict XVI’s few conservative statements or actions are part of the game he is playing. He’s a satanic heretic who certainly understands the malice and the meaning of his statements.
Benedict XVI paragraph 4: “Likewise, therefore, the Catholic Church which is in China does not have a mission to change the structure or administration of the State…”
This statement indicates that Benedict XVI is not opposed to Communism.
Benedict XVI paragraph 7, speaking about Catholics receiving recognition from the Communist state: “... not a few members of the Catholic community are asking whether recognition from the civil authorities – necessary in order to function publicly – somehow compromises communion with the universal Church... In not a few particular instances, however, indeed almost always, in the process of recognition the intervention of certain bodies obliges the people involved to adopt attitudes, make gestures and undertake commitments that are contrary to the dictates of their conscience as Catholics. I understand, therefore, how in such varied conditions and circumstances it is difficult to determine the correct choice to be made.”
This statement indicates that one might be able to take positions that are contrary to the Catholic Faith.
