Heresy of the Week, Week of 10/24/03
“Dear Hindu Friends, ”1. This year again, I am pleased to greet you and share with you a short message on the occasion of Diwali, the feast which you celebrate according to your venerable religious tradition. I know that among many Hindu festivals which are celebrated by you throughout the year this one, in particular, has a special place and deep relevance for you and your families. Diwali is a time for families to get together, and celebrate in a meaningful way the rites prescribed by the ancient dharma… I have always been impressed by the fact that on the occasion of Diwali there are some Hindus who make every effort to bring about reconciliation within families and between neighbors, friends and acquaintances. Could not Catholics and Hindus extend these efforts to bring about wider reconciliation and a more lasting peace in our towns and villages… Do not your various Hindu traditions (sampradaya) eloquently speak not only of God's love for us and our love for God but also of the love that human beings must have for one another?… The occasion of the festival of Diwali provides us with ample food for thought when the Hindu tradition informs us of how light overcomes darkness, how the victory of good is achieved over eviland how hatred gives way to love through forgiveness. Dear Hindu friends, may you, your families, friends and even the strangers in your midst experience joy, peace, serenity, and light on the feast of Diwali, as symbolized by the innumerable flames, the Deepavali.” - Sent by Archbishop Michael L. Fitzgerald (10-14-2003), President of the Vatican Council for Interreligious Dialogue: http://www.zenit.org/en/articles/holy-see-s-message-to-hindus-on-feast-of-diwali)Comment: If one thought that the apostasy of the Vatican II sect could not get any worse, we now have the apostate “Archbishop” Michael Fitzgerald sending a greeting to the Hindus in praise of their religion on their feast day. Scripture tells us that the gods of the heathens are devils (Psalm 95:5). And St. Paul tells us that the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils and not to God (1 Cor. 10:20). Hinduism, therefore, is a false religion of Satan. Thus, what we see above is an endorsement of Satanism – pure religious indifferentism and a total rejection of Jesus Christ. Fitzgerald even tells the Hindus that their false religion of the devil “informs us of how light overcomes darkness.” If Fitzgerald were not a complete apostate himself who unfortunately lies in spiritual darkness, he would discover that those outside the kingdom of Christ lie in the kingdom of darkness (Colossians 1:13).
Colossians 1:13: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.” Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus (# 15), Nov. 9, 1846: “Also perverse is that shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory greatly at variance even with reason. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion, as if there could ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness, or any agreement between Christ and Belial.”Go back to Heresies of the Week of John Paul II and the Vatican II sect regarding Pagans, Jews and Infidels
