Bianchi and the Bose Community, the real scandal is not having stopped him earlier

Everyone wonders what happened inside the Bose Community (Northern Italy) to cause the Holy See to intervene so heavily. But the real question should be why the Holy See has allowed Enzo Bianchi's heterodox theses to circulate inside the Church all over the world for so many years. And why a dosssier of 2004 in the Vatican has been covered up.

Also the West lost its freedom with Tiananmen

Reviewing the thirty-one years that have passed since the Tiananmen Square massacre, we must admit that the Chinese communist regime gambled but won the bet, imposing its "law" internationally and with a large swath of western countries now espousing the "Chinese model". We can only hope for one of those unforeseeable historical events that often upset the plans of mankind.

Zen: "Hong Kong risks another Tiananmen"

Exactly 31 years after the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing, dark clouds hover over Hong Kong: "The brave young men who defend Hong Kong's autonomy and freedom are beaten, arrested, tortured." "Unfortunately, given the situation at the top of the Communist Party in Beijing, we don’t have much to hope for." "As Christians we put ourselves in the hands of God, defend truth and justice, pray for the conversion of our persecutors". Cardinal Joseph Zen, emeritus bishop of Hong Kong speaks out on the current situation in this special administrative region of China.

After he condemned the killing of George Floyd and expressed solidarity to his family, president Donald Trump warned the responsible of the violence that have spread across America.

Homeland, the Command that challenges blind enthusiasm for globalism
REPORT ON THE SOCIAL DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH

Homeland, the Command that challenges blind enthusiasm for globalism

Why does politics believe that the nation-state is overrun by unstoppable globalization and thereby condemns itself? The XI Report on the Social Doctrine of the Church in the World issued by the Cardinal Van Thuân Observatory is dedicated to this problem. The nation is configured as a "homeland" precisely because it has its roots in the "fathers" and John Paul said that duty to the homeland derives from the fourth commandment: Honour  your father and mother. This is why its necessary to recuperate this concept in the face of the current unstoppable forced globalism.

Forced to donate organs, even when still alive

Britain has changed its organ transplant law. Now adults who do not explicitly refuse to donate their organs may become donors regardless. Italy has the same guideline. With tacit consent, there is a very high risk of handing over to the state living persons whose health is so compromised that it is preferable they be killed to save the lives of other healthier persons who, from a quality of life perspective, are deemed more worthy.

«Minneapolice», repression and anger behind the violence

The escalation of violence after the death of George Floyd, a black American detained for using a counterfeit 20-dollar bill, follows 8 weeks of extreme lockdown orders, loosened only a week ago. Minnesota was already a powder keg because of hunger, no work, no individual liberty, no basic human respect, and the state and the city are run by radical left-wing ideologues, Tim Walz and Jacob Frey.


War on Chloroquine. Some like it Covid
BEHIND THE SCENE

War on Chloroquine. Some like it Covid

After an article was published in the scientific journal Lancet declaring hydroxychloroquine’s ineffectiveness, the World Health Organization halted its testing. This decision goes against ongoing evidence to the contrary, as well as it having been a recognized treatment for SARS. Perhaps this is because hydroxychloroquine it is too cheap, thus being a hindrance to other lucrative pharmaceutical sales hoped for during the pandemic. This also explains the many obstacles to recommend plasma therapies. An English scientist explains his rationale in a simple yet chilling way: "We hope that the virus will remain with us for a while longer” so as to have more time to experiment with a vaccine.

THE REAL FREEDOM

How Blessed Franz succeeded in remaining faithful to the Truth

Franz Jägerstätter, beatified in 2007, knowing that Nazism was incompatible with Catholicism, refused the oath to the Führer, government allowances for his family, and compensation from the state. His popularity with his neighbors in his village changed into hostility against him; everyone turned against him, even his parish priest and his bishop. He had only the Bible and his wife to support him, even though she knew that the farm would fall apart and that she and their daughters would be branded forever as the family of a traitor.

FIFTH ANNIVERSARY

Laudato Si', a debatable self-celebration

On the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’s Laudato Si', a year will be dedicated to deepening discussion on the social encyclical’s themes. This is a questionable initiative, as questionable as the very content of the encyclical, which is based on a series of debatable scientific theories and which represents a discontinuity with the Church’s prior social teachings.

Catholic-gay Connection: how to promote homosexuality

Avvenire (the main Italian Catholic daily newspaper), Cardinal Zuppi, the publisher San Paolo are  joining forces to launch a new offensive for the legitimisation of homosexuality in the Church. The Archbishop of Bologna has given his blessing to a book  which gathers together the voices of theologians and psychologists, who are pushing everyone in the same direction. With the excuse of welcoming people, the difference between sexual orientation and homosexual acts is erased, going so far as to open up to some recognition of gay unions. Ratzinger had already warned 34 years ago: in the Church a gay lobby wants to subvert the teaching on sexuality.
