Emailer to Eric Phelps: It’s been a couple of weeks since you replied to my inquiry about
Ron Paul. I was hoping we might pick up the thread… I studied
your responses, did a little more digging myself, and here’s where
I’m at just now. I follow the order of your earlier comments:

•My search came up dry for Ron Paul’s letter of praise to Rome and the
papacy; however, a search led to Arctic Beacon and a piece that
covers Paul’s habit of consistently side-stepping questions when the
Vatican or related subjects come up… I’m not sure this should
necessarily lead to any conclusions about motive just now.

Eric Phelps: Disagreed. The letter from Paul openly praises the Pope calling
him a man of God.


On Alex Jones’ Infowars website there is an article where he is saying that – as close to outright as possible – he’s a JBSer: John Birch Society member. Consider his deferential position to Jesuit-trained JBS President John F. McManus. Now consider pro-Vatican Ron Paul’s endorsement of his “many friends” that are members of the highly Catholic John Birch Society (an organisation with many high-level Masons & long links to Knights of Malta) & read the articles “the John Birch Society” & “the Belmont Brotherhood” & think about Paul’s Luciferian Masonic salutes – & no, he’s not greeting deaf people either (nor is the Pope), see: Satanists jailed over ritual killing.

Jones & his old friend Jesuit-trained Pat Buchanan of the American branch of the Pope’s religious-military order the Knights of Malta, are Ron Paul’s staunchest supporters. Jones refuses to seriously examine the extent of the covert global manipulation of the Papacy, the Jesuits & the Knights of Malta, while Paul sang the praises of the previous pontiff & Buchanan is the uber-Catholic.

Face facts folks: all U.S. Presidential candidates are elite frontmen & the most influential sectors of the “alternate media” are intelligence-gathering psy-op set-ups.

Before the US House of Representatives, April 6, 2005.

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to join my colleagues in paying tribute to the life and legacy of Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II was one of the great religious leaders of modern times, and an eloquent champion of human freedom and dignity. Unlike all-too-many misguided religious leaders, the Pope understood that liberty, both personal and economic, is a necessary condition for the flourishing of human virtue.

The Pope’s commitment to human dignity, grounded in the teachings of Christ, led him to become one of the most eloquent spokesmen for the consistent ethic of life, exemplified by his struggles against abortion, war, euthanasia, and the death penalty.

Unfortunately, few in American politics today adhere to the consistent ethic of life, thus we see some who cheered the Pope’s stand against the war and the death penalty while downplaying or even openly defying his teachings against abortion and euthanasia.

Others who cheered the Pope’s opposition to abortion and euthanasia were puzzled or hostile to his opposition to war. Many of these “pro-life supporters of war” tried to avoid facing the inherent contradictions in their position by distorting the Just War doctrine, which the Pope properly interpreted as denying sanction to the Iraq war. One prominent conservative commentator even suggested that the pope was the “enemy” of the United States.

In conclusion, I am pleased to pay tribute to Pope John Paul II. I would encourage those who wish to honor his memory to reflect on his teachings regarding war and the sanctity of life, and consider the inconsistencies in claiming to be pro-life but supporting the senseless killing of innocent people that inevitably accompanies militarism, or in claiming to be pro-peace and pro-compassion but supporting the legal killing of the unborn.
