Vatican sponsors feminist platformOn March 8, 2017, under the sponsorship of the head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, the Vatican allowed the "Voices of Faith" meeting to be held in its facilities. At this feminist event women gather, echoing the UN International Women's Day. This is the fourth year the Vatican has hosted this initiative that started with Pope Francis.
Among the speakers was Sr. Simone Campbell, above right, an American pro-abortion nun, who is also known for her other leftist positions, which include: promoting ordination of women to the priesthood; proposing the complete economic equality of the classes; being against any superiority of men over women (labeled as patriarchalism); being indiscriminately against war; being an advocate of the multiple leftist items on the agenda of the "Nuns on the Bus."
The speaker of honor was Fr. Arturo Sosa, Superior General of the Jesuits, below first row. In his address he referred to God as Mother and encouraged the feminist fight for the ordination of women by noting that Pope Francis had created a commission to study the possibility of women deacons.
Sosa also criticized xenophobia, referring to a country's protection of its own values against foreign ones – an indirect reference to Brexit and Trump – and the fact that women make less money than men.
We do not need to read Marx, Lenin or Trotsky and follow the initiatives of the Communist Party to know how the ideals of Communism are winning today. We just need to read the documents of the Vatican, the speeches of its leaders and follow what the Holy See is doing...
