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.

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Group Stopping Illegal Aliens In New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of the militia group that is stopping ‘asylum seekers’ after they illegally cross over the US border into New Mexico.

Hopkins was arrested shortly after the anti-American ACLU accused the militia group of kidnapping and illegally detaining the aliens.

Reuters reported:

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

More than 300 ‘asylum seekers’ trying to illegally cross the US border this weekend surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens comprised of ex-cops and veterans.

This is what happens when the US government doesn’t even uphold its most basic commitment to the American people, to secure the borders from invaders.

The militia then handed over the detained aliens to US border patrol.

The militia immediately came under attack — PayPal and GoFundMe banned the group of armed citizens from being able to raise money.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.”

“The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, who identified himself to BuzzFeed as the “commander” of the militia, said that the bans have “killed” their efforts.

“They killed us,” Cheney said. “I have to find some other way for people to donate.”

There is a crisis at the US-Mexico border and the Democrats and activist judges are fighting President Trump at every turn.

In March alone, over 100,000 illegal aliens were detained by US border patrol.

According to reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Instead of arresting the illegal alien invaders, the FBI arrests an American man who is defending the borders. Let that sink in.
