Your collusion is nudging us not just into a non-Christian civilization, but an anti-Christian and anti-human non-civilization.

Dear Pope Frank,

Although the Church has waded through some truly awful Papacies since Popes Peter and Linus got the ball rolling all those years ago, you are truly in a lower league of your own. Whereas those spicier Popes, at least, had character, you have none. And you have even less managerial skills. It is not so much the Holy Spirit the Church needs to steady the ship but McKinsey and Boston Consulting who would, if given free rein, give you and most of your gout-ridden fellow-bishops your marching orders.

Much of the reason for that is the Catholic Church which, Lord help us, you are supposed to steer, has collapsed in its traditional strongholds of Germany, the Netherlands and Quebec which has, with your connivance, foisted that Justin Trudeau warmongering anti-Christ on us.

I know Jesus liked to knock around with sinners, many of whom tend to be a colourful lot but there are limits. Here you are with serial war criminal, serial sex offender and serial Orgy Island commuter POTUS Bill Clinton. Whoever you are trying to impress there it is not the Serbs, the Haitians, the Clintons’ countless other victims or their friends, families and general well-wishers.

And, as Alex Soros, son of arch-manipulator George, was in that same Clinton party, one must really question what your game is. Though you prattle on about the devil a lot, I doubt you’d recognise him if he shook you by the hand.

Although that link has you shaking hands with Clown Prince Zelensky, whom your Church slobbers all over, you call Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega all kinds of names. Although the 25 year sentence Nicaragua summarily slapped on Bishop Rolando José Álvarez is totally unjustifiable, so too are the barbaric sentences your Zelensky mate metes out whenever he gets the urge to act the hard man on his defenceless subjects. Whereas Noriega typifies your failures in Latin America, Zelensky represents the much bigger failures of your Ostpolitik.

On the subject of Nicaragua, isn’t it amazing that Bianca Jagger, who married Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick in a Catholic wedding, makes a much better diplomat not only in her native Nicaragua but throughout your own backyard of Latin America than do you and your own bevy of clerical diplomats?

If you were a straight shooter, you would pick up the blower to Belarusian peace activist, President Aleksandr Lukashenko, who could use his good offices to persuade Noriega to behave like an adult.

But Noriega is not the only one in need of a chill pill, as he has his reasons to be wary of the Dutch, the Red Cross and all of those, like the Vatican, connected near or far to the Yankees and their nun-raping Contra killers. For all your Russophobia, American death squads in Latin America murdered far more Catholic priests and gang raped far more Catholic nuns than did Communists in eastern Europe but you are fine with that.

And, even though Spain and Nicaragua have re-established diplomatic relations, that happy event is not a case of God closing one door and opening another but of the Vatican choosing to see spectacle over strategy, which is sadly gone walkabout in your haphazard outfit. Leave Jumpin’ Jack Flash to the 80 year-old Mick Jagger and you stick to doing your own job, once you properly define it.

If we go back to your 2015 meeting with Italy’s bishops in Florence, you quipped that “we are not living in an era of change but a change of era”. Fine words, whatever they mean but they are, as Hamlet said, only words, words, words, and talk, rather than action, is cheap.

And by actions I don’t mean kissing the feet of South Sudanese grifters, meeting that Swedish show-boater Greta Thunberg or any of your other social media clickbait gimmicks.

You should be more concerned about the slaughter of Catholics in Nigeria than with kissing the feet of grifters or humouring your old sparring partner, Argentine Archbishop Víctor Manuel Fernández, who wrote a book about kissing. Assuming that was only about kissing in the abstract, it puts me in mind of Thomas Mann writing about princesses kissing lepers, who called the sores they got from them Roses of Christ, or some such Medieval rot.

Quite frankly, they also remind me of you with your fetish for kissing the feet of random strangers. You are a Pope. You should act like one.

Not only is that pointless kissing a grave insult to Catholics but it is a bigger one to Buddhists, who would crack your head wide open for such an insult. You are not back home with your mother in the Buenos Aries of your childhood lighting penny candles to Santa Niňo in your local ermita but in Rome, where you are the boss of bosses of a world-wide outfit and where, heaven help us, you are supposed to be Christ’s Vicar on Earth. You should shape up, act the part and leave the theatrics to Zelensky, Trudeau and Soros’ Biden puppet (who has disowned his own granddaughter, for heaven’s sake), all three of whom play you like a violin.

Your collusion is nudging us not just into a non-Christian civilization, but an anti-Christian and anti-human non-civilization. Everything the Catholic Church gave the West, and through it the world, is being actively abandoned, despised, and spat upon. France is transforming from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to becoming the ravaged niece of Islam. Georgetown, the flagship university of your Jesuit network, is the nerve centre of the CIA and the World Economic Forum’s hub for global religious control.

Pope Benedict lived, as we all should, within his own myths and was, in the end, undone by the failure of Pope John Paul to heed threats from the West as well as the East. I refer to how and why he ignored the child rape scandals of cash rich outfits like the Legionaries of Christ and how and why Pope John Paul 11 and others fully signed up to the CIA’s Ostpolitik.

Speaking of the East, you are off to Mongolia in late August. Lucky fellow. But don’t go kissing Buddhists’ feet or they will set a few of their Sumo wrestlers on you. And don’t, as my previous articles discussed, go insulting the Buryats or waving your dumb ass Ukrainian Nazi flags about. Not only will the Chinese and Russian authorities be in attendance but they will be there as part of their respective missions to protect and safeguard their citizens, many of whom will feel queasy about having an enabler of Ukrainian Nazis and Hong Kong pro-democracy murderers in their midst. Exercise a bit of common sense.

And bravery. If you must visit anywhere, go visit the Syrian Arab Republic, whose heroic army and people, Catholic and allied priests and bishops amongst them, have spilled their blood in abundance for diversity, inclusion and the other shibboleths you and their Yankee killers profess to champion. And, while you are in the neighbourhood, go visit the Christians of Palestine without first paying homage to their overseers. Grow some huevos, as Maradona, Messi or di Stéfano might say.

In early August, you are off to Fatima where Our Divine Lady asked us to pray for the conversion of Russia not, please note, Ukraine, as there was no such real or imagined country then. Russia seems to be doing ok on that front right now but why smear the Russian people by linking them to the savages who run Ukraine? They are not equals. Moscow is the Third Rome and you must deal with her as such.

Though your Ostpolitik, being a continuation of Pope John Paul’s, contains the strengths but, more so, the weaknesses of his prejudices, you must remember that his era has passed. Though his Polish and Ukrainian generation had some issues with the Russians, they were as much managerial as ideological. The Soviets were terrible managers and far too many Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, Chechens and many others, suffered as a result as, I am sure, did your Buddhist nemeses, the Buryats.

To get beyond all of that, you must stop being the hand-maiden of Ukrainian gangsters and Polish war-mongers, neither of whom serve the interests of their respective peoples. And, whilst harping on about Soviet mismanagement, you must correct the managerial mistakes of the late Polish Pope.

Chief of these was his emasculation of Latin American radicalism. We are not talking here of being Che Guevara (another idiot) in a cassock but of Brazilians like Hélder Cȃmara who believed, rightly or wrongly that the favelas’ poor had souls and needs just as much as had Latin America’s rich that the Legionaries of Christ shook down for the greater glory of God and the Vatican’s coffers. Though priests like Cȃmara, Romero and nuns like those the CIA gang raped and murdered in El Salvador or machine gunned to death in Yemen were, like so many priests and bishops in Syria, abandoned by you and yours, they did not abandon their charges.

I exclude Fr Paolo Dall’Oglio, your fellow Jesuit, from that list, as calling for the gassing of Syria’s Christians and Alawites was not the work of a man of God but a man of the CIA, whose proxies eventually did him in, just as they are doing in your Church in Latin America and the Philippines right in front of your very eyes. But you know all that, as Syria’s Jesuits disowned him, even if you and yours did not. If we follow the Legionaries of Christ ex malo bonum motto, then you and your fellow Jesuits should get your own house in order before you start sounding off on the Buddhists of Siberia and Mongolia. You should tone down the rhetoric on Ukraine and set strict conditions on any further displays of support for their Uniate Church and their Polish and CIA enablers. You are not Khruschev banging his shoe on the UN’s podium and you are certainly not Iraqi super-hero Muntadhar al-Zaidi throwing his shoes at American war criminal and Papal pal, POTUS George Bush.

As well as seeing why Iraqis, Buddhists and other civilised peoples despise foot-related insults you should, in your down time, read Rerum Novarum, Quadragesimo Anno, Pacem in Terris, Populorum Progressio, Humane Vitae and all the great encyclicals and penny pamphlets of the last 150 years expounding on the labour, trans-humanist and other topical issues surrounding them. In truth, your office should stop wasting everyone’s time haranguing Texan Bishop Thomas Strickland, Puerto Rican Bishop Daniel Fernandez Torres, Paraguayan Bishop Rogelio Livieres Plano and so many others in Vatican visitations that more resemble Walmart’s despotic managerial style than what one should expect from the Vatican.

I feel like the great Syrian apostle Paul writing to the Corinthians, the Philippians, the Thessalonians, the Romans, the Ephesians and the Colossians, all of whom were probably doing their own thing and were too busy to write back to him. The roots of the Catholic Church go back not only to the great St Paul but also to the great well-springs of knowledge that sprang up around the Jordan, Euphrates, Orontes and Tigris rivers.

Your mission and that of your Church is to harvest all fonts of that knowledge and, like St Paul and his chums, infuse their essence into the four corners of the earth, learning from the Second and Third Romes and from everyone and everywhere else as you go along.

You need a system of organic decay where you apply your Church’s talents and resources to where they are needed, more or less as human seed capital and then, when the project can sustain itself, withdraw. You should stop cementing in our holy wells and allow us to sing in Latin or any other language or idiom we care to. To pontificate otherwise is to show oneself to be a Philistine. If Catholics wish to sing hymns to Mary or splash out on a High Mass in Latin, who are you to judge?

Though it is a joy to celebrate Mass with thousands of Nigerian choristers, it is equally so to be at a sung Latin High Mass or to be in a French cathedral resounding with their own wonderful hymns for God sings, as only God can, in all such tongues.

God walks on a thousand different trails. He walked with the Cherokee, the Creek, the Chickasaw, the Choctaw and the Seminole on their Trail of Tears. He walks with the Palestinians, the Syrians and the Armenians as their Golgothas continue. He walked with Bologna’s Cardinal Giacamo Lercaro, one of the four moderators of the Second Vatican Council, who denounced the United States’ genocide campaign in North Vietnam from the High Altar on New Year’s Day 1968 when he said “The Church cannot be neutral in the face of evil, but must be prophetic”.

God has walked enough. God should sit down and not just with Julian Assange, Gonzalo Lira and all the other innocents in British, Israeli and Ukrainian prison cells. And you should get up and do your job, which is to enable millions of others to do His work so that, as the Good Book tells us, the meek will inherit the earth even as those friends of yours I have castigated continue to drag the world along with them on their highway to nuclear hell.

Open Letter to His Holiness, Pope Francis I, Bishop of Rome

As well as seeing why Iraqis, Buddhists and other civilised peoples despise foot-related insults you should, in your down time, read Rerum Novarum, Quadragesimo Anno, Pacem in Terris, Populorum Progressio, Humane Vitae and all the great encyclicals and penny pamphlets of the last 150 years expounding on the labour, trans-humanist and other topical issues surrounding them. In truth, your office should stop wasting everyone’s time haranguing Texan Bishop Thomas Strickland, Puerto Rican Bishop Daniel Fernandez Torres, Paraguayan Bishop Rogelio Livieres Plano and so many others in Vatican visitations that more resemble Walmart’s despotic managerial style than what one should expect from the Vatican.

I feel like the great Syrian apostle Paul writing to the Corinthians, the Philippians, the Thessalonians, the Romans, the Ephesians and the Colossians, all of whom were probably doing their own thing and were too busy to write back to him. The roots of the Catholic Church go back not only to the great St Paul but also to the great well-springs of knowledge that sprang up around the Jordan, Euphrates, Orontes and Tigris rivers.

Your mission and that of your Church is to harvest all fonts of that knowledge and, like St Paul and his chums, infuse their essence into the four corners of the earth, learning from the Second and Third Romes and from everyone and everywhere else as you go along.

You need a system of organic decay where you apply your Church’s talents and resources to where they are needed, more or less as human seed capital and then, when the project can sustain itself, withdraw. You should stop cementing in our holy wells and allow us to sing in Latin or any other language or idiom we care to. To pontificate otherwise is to show oneself to be a Philistine. If Catholics wish to sing hymns to Mary or splash out on a High Mass in Latin, who are you to judge?

Though it is a joy to celebrate Mass with thousands of Nigerian choristers, it is equally so to be at a sung Latin High Mass or to be in a French cathedral resounding with their own wonderful hymns for God sings, as only God can, in all such tongues.

God walks on a thousand different trails. He walked with the Cherokee, the Creek, the Chickasaw, the Choctaw and the Seminole on their Trail of Tears. He walks with the Palestinians, the Syrians and the Armenians as their Golgothas continue. He walked with Bologna’s Cardinal Giacamo Lercaro, one of the four moderators of the Second Vatican Council, who denounced the United States’ genocide campaign in North Vietnam from the High Altar on New Year’s Day 1968 when he said “The Church cannot be neutral in the face of evil, but must be prophetic”.

God has walked enough. God should sit down and not just with Julian Assange, Gonzalo Lira and all the other innocents in British, Israeli and Ukrainian prison cells. And you should get up and do your job, which is to enable millions of others to do His work so that, as the Good Book tells us, the meek will inherit the earth even as those friends of yours I have castigated continue to drag the world along with them on their highway to nuclear hell.
