Hope you are doing well. I heard that your trip to
And I really must say that I liked all that you said there. You so rightly said, “Latin American Indians had been “silently longing” to become Christians when Spanish and Portuguese conquerors took over their native lands centuries ago.” So true you are, carrying on the illustrious tradition of your church in upholding truth, like when they dictated that the sun revolved around the earth. But you are right, Latin Americans were indeed longing to be Christians then. When the Inca king Atahualpa was asked by the Spaniards to convert to Christianity, he said that he was not interested since his own religion was good and his subjects were happy and that while Christ died, the Sun and Moon (divine to Incas) never die. Then your followers attacked and captured him and then threatened to execute him by burning him. Atahualpa was horrified since his inferior faith (according to your church), said that his soul would not be able to rest in peace if he was burned. So the Spaniards suggested that he convert to Christianity as a condition to his being killed by some other means. Indeed, Atahualpa had a longing to be a Christian at that point. How wonderfully true you are in your assessment. (Atahualpa was eventually converted and then killed by strangulation by the noble Spaniards)
You have cited Marxism and Globalization as the causes for many of
And look at globalization, which you have rightly blamed for creating a false illusion of happiness. Even without taking part in the consumerist culture promoted by it, you have been able to live a happy life. You live in the Sistine chapel where every pee basin is probably lined with gold, you wear these beautiful clothes (your garment, if sold on ebay could feed many poor families for years), and have elegant food without having to bother about how to get the next meal. In fact your predecessor even decided to give up walking, always moving around in a sleek electric van. Didn’t you and he manage to live a happy life without taking part in Globalization? Can a poor disabled Latin American (probably also a believer in globalization) afford an electric van like John Paul? Anyone who sees the pictures I have put will know what life is best for him.
And yes, you are so dutiful in taking care of who is fornicating with whom and when. Your church has rightly identified pre-marital sex, abortion, wearing condom during fornication, and gay-lesbian relationships as the biggest problems facing the world. I fully agree with you and your church that once these are solved or rather banned,
My dear Mr. Ratzinger, you and your church are such a wonderful gift to our world. And look at this world, some of them hit back at anything you say like they did when you brilliantly said that Islam inherently condones violence. Why do they misinterpret everything you say? Why don’t they take the simple hint that they should only analyze your comments four or five weeks after you have spoken (or may be a process similar to the way you evaluate miracles for your saints)? If they bother you much, ask all the poor Catholics to donate money so that you can form an army and conduct something like the Iberian inquisition against the skeptics. If they ask you difficult questions like why are so many devout Catholics in India, Africa and Latin America still so miserably poor, ask them to ignore empirical data, like your church did when they so correctly persecuted Galileo.
These secularists, they never care that even at this age you have to routinely monitor who is fornicating with whom and where? They don’t bother about your health. But I do, so please take my advice and go back to your
