Vatican recognizes state of Palestine in new treaty

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty finalized Wednesday, immediately sparking Israeli ire and accusations that the move hurt peace prospects.

The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, is both deeply symbolic and makes explicit that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.

The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the U.N. General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state and had referred to the Palestine state since. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state, giving the Vatican's former signs of recognition an unambiguous confirmation in a formal, bilateral treaty.

And the pews will reflect the misguided and inappropriate actions of the pope.

Kathleen....Obviously you don't attend Mass anymore if you ever did. 

When the Body and Blood of Christ are offered at every Mass, it doesn't matter what any misguided cleric thinks or does.

Here's an interesting "proof"' of why to be on our knees praying for Wisdom - for ourselves and the Pope...

Peter: why do you think that?

Who'da thunk this pope would be an IDIOT?

As a life long catholic I am not supporting this pope. I find the direction he is taking the church deeply disturbing. I see the progressives infiltrating the Vatican at all levels. I can not back a church that is doing the biddings of a political party and to recognize a Palestinian state.

The msm said that the Pope has OK'ed gay rights & gay marriage....they read him wrong....all he said was "who am I to judge how people think or act"....that is what Jesus would probably have said too.

I read only the King James Authorized Version HOLY BIBLE!! "TRUST in the LORD ( ADONAI ) with all Thine HEART and lean NOT on thine own understanding,  in all thy ways Acknowledge HIM and HE shall Direct thy Paths!!

Back on Topic!! This Abomination pope is Anti-Israel-Yisrael / Anti-Zionism / Very Antiseitism / Anti-Christian and Jewish People / Anti-Christian ( Antichrist )( 1 John 4:3 KJV )!! 

Please READ Genesis Chapter 12:3 everyone!! "Our True GOD who art in HEAVEN will BLESS thee that blessed ( ISRAEL-YISRAEL ) and I will CURSE thee that CURSETH thee"!!

Please PRAY for our Judeo-Christian Nation USA and Israel-Yisrael NOW ( )!! Only JUDAISM and CHRISTIANITY is RIGHT as we have the same GOD who art in HEAVEN ! Baruch Hashem-Yahweh-YHWH BLESS Ye All Everyone who STAND with ISRAEL-YISRAEL and our JUDEO-CHRISTIAN NATION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!


Love and Shalom, YSIC \o/


There's a line between judgment and discernment that's hard to tell in a situation like this... (paraphrased from an old love song - My Foolish Heart.)

It certainly is looking more and more like this pope is taking the Catholic Church down the road of Marxism and even into sympathy and even support of Islam/Sheria (they are the same, you know.)

Michael, I agree. I also think that the RCC has taken a "hard left". I see it in their announcements and hear it in their preaching and when speaking to priests.  They will continue to see a decline in their attendance and collections.

I hear that the church is receiving significant money from the Federal Gov't to resettle the illegals. Not only do the Dems want more votes the RCC must be looking for more collections.

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
