Paolo Gabriele and the Vatican Faux Trial

I have not rushed into print with my opinion about the so-called trial of the Bishop of Rome’s butler.

The whole thing from the start was a bit of I don’t know what to make of it.

It was no Stalin Show Trial.  It was a faux trial and we already knew the verdict.

Paolo is a dupe in a huge game of front office chicken politics between the unofficial Vatican Baseball teams of the Crows and the Doves. That’s American baseball BTW and not the Italian version. Whatever.

The Doves may or may not be what is left of what passes for moral forces left in the front office of the Roman Church founded in the fourth century by the emperor/god Constantine the Great aka saint Constantine.

The recent leaks coming out of the Vatican have been a source of great embarrassment to the ruling brass of the extremely old and extremely senile group of politburo members holding on for dear life for just one more crack at the papacy even if it is for a few months or a few years and not unlike the string of short term Soviet flunkies that wanted some reward at the end of meaningless lives as institutional players and or politicians.  

The end games of dead or dying institutions and or obsolete mission statement belief systems.

They had to make it look like they were on top of all the leaks to the press about corruption, cronyism, buggery and real leaking plumbing (faucets) all over the artificial Disneyland created by Mussolini in 1929 to put a fence around and hopefully an end to interference in Italian politics by the pimps, bankers and hangers-on that run the Vatican and have done so since day one around the year 325 C.E..

The crows and or the ravens, the dark party, the one in power that has no power and cannot manage anything. As an aside, the independent mob in the USA that feign allegiance as they close churches and sell off valuable real estate in places like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco (follow the money btw), well they, that burkite wing of the Crows, are an entity unto themselves these days under the feeble Brezhnev like leadership of the current fading figurehead ratzo wing etc.

How do you spell Yuri Andropov, Tarcisio Bertone?

The “New Engelization” = the "New Perestroika".  LOL (in fact – LMAO)

Anyway the leaks are as much of an embarrassment to the Crows as is the possibility of real whistle blowers that could put half the Vatican front office in jail should they be able to jump over the oxymoron of Italian justice and get an EU tribunal going on the money laundering alone with the cartels etc. thing.

The butler faux trial ended on a Saturday which tells me that it was unimportant news in the media cycle and they wanted to forget the whole thing.  

The opus dei people have been running around spying on everyone with the heat on so to speak now that they got the goods on a rather mediocre public servant who had been entrusted to keep his eyes on loose valuables hanging around the Bishop’s private apartment. Handing valuables or documents back over when asked for them, after and while his wife babysat them in his private home space. 

Too much house hoarding, and not in the Gabriele Household, as so much hoarding of blackmail documents and other juicy video goodies and audio tapes in the Secretary of State’s overcrowded private household space – OMG!

They, the opus dei plumbers, may have caulked or puttied the windows or the real leaking plumbing (faucets) and they are putting up air raid curtains to cut off all lights from view at night, but the truth is that the Holy Spirit blew town decades ago with John XXIII and Vatican II.  

Fighting over the last pieces of cheese in a post-apocalyptic Roman Church world is all the rats, ravens, crows or even doves have left to do once the H.S. flew the coop.

Which BTW resides not in a place or an institution anymore but in the Hearts of the true followers of Christ.

Pope Benedict’s Racial, No I Mean Nuremburg type Catholic Laws on Marriage Equality

Racial Requirements for Marriage Equality on the way to the Registry Office - 1935

Running into some interesting visuals while doing some historical research looking for something else, the thought occurred to me how so very much like the 1930s German Nuremburg Racial Laws are the current main-stream currents and opinions of some churches in their almost political fanaticism regarding racial sexual marriage equality.

That somehow, certain senile old men, who claim that they and their parents hated the national socialists in the German homeland in the 1930s and 1940s (Notice how I am trying to not invoke Godwin’s Law here with a certain adjective) are blindly taken at their word and have also somehow modeled their dictatorial vision of what Adolph Jesus wanted for the human race in the current quadrant space of modern history.

Do you count on the current Socio/Politico/Economico Global Spreadsheet?

That with so much of humanity already discounted on the new Global Corporate Spreadsheet these days, it is only a matter of time before anyone of us, no matter what our degree or tastes in sexuality, 10%, 25%, 50% etc. that sooner of later a recycled chart from the Nuremburg Laws will get reused with English words inserted in it (a chart attachment to that spreadsheet) and along with a FoxFauxNews type explanation, footnote, of why a once secure percentage of the 47%, as an example, are now ready for the ovens at the Solent Green for profit factory newly installed in your town, next to the Wal-Mart of course, in an easy to find location.
Report tomorrow at Zulo 1100 hundred hours. Have a nice eternity.

Into a Mirror, Darkly - Archbishop Cordileone - San Francisco

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

If I speak in the tongues of men and angels,
but have not love,
I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol.

And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains,
but have not love, I am nothing.

And if I dole out all my goods, and
if I deliver my body that I may boast
but have not love, nothing I am profited.

Love is long suffering,
love is kind,
it is not jealous,
love does not boast,
it is not inflated.

It is not discourteous,
it is not selfish,
it is not irritable,
it does not enumerate the evil.
It does not rejoice over the wrong, but rejoices in the truth 

It covers all things,
it has faith for all things,
it hopes in all things,
it endures in all things.

Love never falls in ruins;
but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or
tongues, they will cease; or
knowledge, it will be superseded.

For we know in part and we prophecy in part.

But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded. 

When I was an infant,
I spoke as an infant,
I reckoned as an infant;

when I became [an adult],
I abolished the things of the infant.

For now we see through a mirror, darkly, but then face to face.
Now I know in part, but then I shall know as also I was fully known.

But now remains
 faith, hope, love,

these three;

but the greatest of these is love.
