Vatican Supports Occupy Wall Street And Begins Search For God’s Bankers

by | 24th, October 2011

THE Vatican  supports change in the banking system. And be warned the Vatican does no suffer failing bankers :

The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises.

Who runs that, then?

The directive Toward Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority tells us:

“The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence… In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviours like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale.”

So says the Catholic Church.

“If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid.”

Cardinal Peter Turkson, head of the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department, tells media:

“The people on Wall Street need to sit down and go through a process of discernment and see whether their role managing the finances of the world is actually serving the interests of humanity and the common good. We are calling for all these bodies and organisations to sit down and do a little bit of re-thinking.”

The search for God’s bankers is on.
