No Holds Barred: My meeting with the pope

http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/Article.aspx?id=174427

By SHMULEY BOTEACH

01/05/2010

It was essential, I argued, that the Church recapture its reputation as one of the foremost champions of the family.

I had a meeting with the pope at his Wednesday audience last week. It was an exciting day. Five of my nine children were with me, as well as both of my parents.

First, let me describe the setting. There were approximately 15,000 people from all over the world in St. Peter’s Square, speaking an untold number of languages. The sun shone brightly. The day was perfect.

The pope arrived in his open-top “pope-mobile” to great fanfare. I assumed they didn’t need the protective bubble because each person present had been screened.

As the pope was driven among the crowd, people shouted, “Viva Papa” (Long live the pope). There seemed to be genuine affection among the Catholic pilgrims.

The pope was driven up the incline and arrived in front of St. Peter’s Basilica. The people there to meet him sat on both sides of his dais. There were clergymen: cardinals, bishops and priests. I sat next to three Anglican bishops from the UK. With me was my friend Gary Krupp, head of the Pave the Way Foundation (who had arranged the visit), and several of his officers.

The pope read greetings in five languages, and an American priest welcomed our group from the pope’s dais. The pope waived to us.

When the formal ceremony – which lasted about two hours – ended, the pope moved along the receiving line to greet us. Gary introduced me warmly, using my formal titles. I gave the pope a special gift we had gotten for him: a beautiful dual-time Phillip Stein watch. It has special resonance because the owner, Will Stein, is an Orthodox German convert to Judaism. The pope lit up when he saw it and said, “Look, it has two faces on it,” which, as it happened, was the perfect introduction for me.

I said, “Pope Benedict, it’s an honor to meet you. This watch has the times of Rome and Jerusalem on it, signifying the eternal friendship between our two faiths. I also hope that whenever you wear it, the future of the Jewish people will be on your mind, as Israel struggles with existential threats such as Iran, which threatens to wipe it off the map. Your voice against these threats is essential, your holiness.”

He said “Yes,” nodding so I continued.

“In addition, the dual face is a symbol of my request that you join us in establishing a global family-dinner night which we call, ‘Turn Friday Night into Family Night.’ It involves what we call the triple two: Two hours of uninterrupted time that parents give their kids, inviting two guests, just as I am your guest today, and discussing two important subjects.”

While I said this, Pope Benedict again nodded.

I concluded, “Your holiness, it’s so important that our two religions work together on this.”

He replied warmly: “We will work together. We will work together,” and held my hand.

I HAD invited my close friends David Victor, chairman of AIPAC, and Rodney Adler, to the meeting. Rodney emphasized the importance of partnering with me to create an international family-dinner night and how much he believed in the idea. The pope again warmly agreed.

David then respectfully but firmly pressed the pope on the need to address the Iran crisis – “a regime which denies the Holocaust, threatens to destroy Israel and is building nuclear weapons.”

The pope replied: “I have spoken about it, and will continue to do so.”

As soon as the meeting was over, I was granted another meeting with Cardinal Walter Casper, president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity. Gary introduced me and made a strong pitch for the importance of partnering with us to further our international family-dinner initiative. The cardinal, a pleasant priest from Germany who has been friends with Pope Benedict for 40 years, strongly endorsed the idea and related memories of family dinners with his own parents.

I made the case to the cardinal that the pedophile-priest scandal has many influential American commentators skewering the Church for being an all-boys’ club, and thus seemingly anti-family.

It was essential, I argued, that the Church recapture its reputation as a champion of the family. He agreed emphatically, and said he agreed that the Church should partner with us.

David Victor then again brought up the threat Iran poses to Israel. The cardinal said Iran’s nuclear program is a threat to the world. He asked David to write to him and Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state, with suggestions of what could be done.

I hope to share more in my next column.

Yaalon: Israelis and Evangelicals are 'All in the Same Boat'

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/138288

Tammuz 15, 5770, 27 June 10 07:45

by Gil Ronen

(Israelnationalnews.com) Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Yaalon spoke at a high profile Christian evangelical conference in the United States on Saturday, and stated that the Israeli government wants to continue to strengthen its relationship with evangelical Christians. Israelis and evangelicals are "all in the same boat," the former Chief of Staff added.

According to CBN analyst Erick Stakelbeck, Yaalon was “undoubtedly the most anticipated speaker for the roughly 1,500 in attendance and 20,000 tuning in via satellite from around the world” to the 2010 Epicenter conference in Philadelphia, which focuses on Bible prophecy, Israel, and the Middle East.

Yaalon called for the "intensive dialogue" between Israel and the United States to become "deeper and, based more on empathy on both sides.” Both sides, he said, “have to show more readiness to listen to the other and understand and respect the concerns and the logic of the other."

The former top IDF soldier expressed hope that the coming meeting between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, slated to be held July 6 in Washington, "will send this message of closing the gaps."

Yaalon, who is a member of Netanyahu's 'Septet' of trusted cabinet ministers, said he believes there is still time to stop Iran's nuclear program through non-military means, should the West decides to do so. He said that he is encouraged by Russia's willingness to cooperate with sanctions against Iran.

Evangelical Christians, who wield great influence in the United States and believe that the Jewish rebirth in the Land of Israel is part of a Divine plan for redemption, are seen by many as Israeli nationalists' strongest ally in an largely hostile world. Some evangelical leaders, like possible Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, are frequent visitors to Judea and Samaria and enjoy excellent relations with Arutz Sheva, Israel's leading nationalist media outlet. Still, relations between the Israeli religious-Jewish Right and the American Christian Right are a tricky matter, because of the mutual distrust inherent in any relationship between religions.

However, Yaalon, like Prime Minister Netanyahu, is a secular Jew, and thus arguably more free to make alliances according to what he perceives as the State of Israel's current geopolitical and military interests.

Controversy Surrounds Construction of Mosques Across U.S.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/07/02/controvery-surrounds-construction-mosques/

Lauren Green

- FoxNews.com

- July 02, 2010

They're separated by thousands of miles, but they share a common controversy: Mosques.

Murfreesboro, Tenn., has joined a growing list of midsized towns in the U.S. that are embroiled in conflicts over proposed mosques being built or bought in their neighborhoods.

They're separated by thousands of miles, but they share a common controversy: Mosques.

Murfreesboro, Tenn., has joined a growing list of midsized towns in the U.S. that are embroiled in conflicts over proposed mosques being built or bought in their neighborhoods.

Including Murfreesboro, residents have risen up against mosques in two other Tennessee towns; in Staten Island, N.Y.; Sheboygan County, Wis.; and the Sheepshead Bay neighborhood of Brooklyn, as well as the proposed mosque and Islamic Cultural Center near Ground Zero, which has garnered some of the most heated battles.

A new Quinnipiac Poll shows that well over half of New Yorkers – 52 percent oppose building a mosque near the 9/11 site. Only 31 percent support it.

Among ethnic groups, Hispanics show the greatest opposition to the Ground Zero mosque, 60 to 19 percent.

Among religious groups, Jews and white Catholics expressed the greatest opposition, both at 66 percent.

Those who support building the mosques say the opposition comes from growing Islamophobia, racism and ignorance.

Those who oppose adamantly deny that bigotry is involved.

In Murfreesboro, Republican congressional candidate Lou Ann Zelenik says she's not against the building of a mosque, but she does oppose the construction of an Islamic cultural center, which she says would be an Islamic training facility. "This has nothing to do with religion, but everything to do with a radical agenda," she says.

But in Staten Island, fears that a mosque will become a breeding ground for homegrown terror are rooted in reports about who's financing the deal.

Residents of the heavily Catholic neighborhood are in an uproar over a Muslim group's plans to buy a shuttered convent and convert it into a Mosque. Besides concerns about increased traffic and little parking, there are disturbing reports surrounding the organization, the Muslim America Society, which is funding the purchase.

According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, MAS has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a 100-year-old movement that is widely regarded as one of the most influential Islamic fundamentalist groups in the world. Its stated agenda has been to spread Islam and Shariah law throughout the West. Some of its members also reportedly created Hamas.

"The Muslim American Society was created in the early 1990s as the de facto arm of the Muslim Brotherhood," says Steve Emerson, IPT's executive director.

He says the MAS and Muslim Brotherhood claim to oppose terrorism, but "behind closed doors they support terrorism and have defended various terrorists that have been convicted in the United States since 9/11."

But Ibrahim Ramey, the human and civil rights director for MAS Freedom, adamantly denies any connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas or terrorism.

"There are people who don't like Muslims and don't like Muslims in their neighborhood who have been vociferously and consistently trying to link MAS with foreign organizations and movements, but that simply isn't true," Ramey says.

"We are not agents of Hamas nor do we answer to them, nor do we provide money for them, nor are we part of any conflict that they have with the U.S. Government, or any authorities in the United States."

Emerson says his group has documentation linking MAS with the Muslim Brotherhood. He also says MAS has been on a spending spree in the last two years, either buying property to establish mosques, as in Staten Island, or taking over existing mosques, like the huge Dal al-Hidrah in Northern Virginia and the very prominent Islamic Society of Boston in Massachusetts.

"The way to gain influence among the Muslim community is to control the mosques," Emerson says. "The way to control what people think in the Muslim community is to have the right imam preach the right message. So by acquiring these mosques the Muslim American Society gets the right to appoint the imam and distribute the message they believe is necessary to spread Islam around the world."

Ramey says the Muslim community simply is growing and needs more space.

"Our interest in establishing mosques," he says, "is simply to provide for members of the organization and members of the larger Muslim community."

"The allegations that MAS is somehow pushing for the implementation of Shariah laws is an absolute lie. It is not founded in fact. It is not part of our agenda."

He says open dialogue is the key to quelling any fears a community may have about mosques.

But for Zelenik, dialogue doesn't seem to be in the near future. She says she's received threats for her comments, but she won't back down. She vows to continue fighting against the mosque in Murfreesboro.

"We are focusing on the positive," she says. "We are not going to let threats stop us for one moment, have not and will not."

Pro-Israel Group Hails Presbyterians for Amending Resolution

Av 3, 5770, 14 July 10 11:12by Gil Ronen

(Israelnationalnews.com) The Presbyterian Church's General Assembly amended at week's end a report that had originally condemned Israel as an “apartheid” state, and called for divestment from it.

A group of influential pastors from within the denomination including Rev. John Buchanan was unhappy with the report issued by the PC-USA's Middle East Study Committee (MESC). That report was so harshly anti-Israeli that even radical leftist group J-Street took exception to it. After a group called Presbyterians for Middle East Peace called on the assembly to reject the report in its entirety, it was decided to delete the historical analysis from the report and replace it with eight personal narratives – four pro-Arab and four pro-Israeli ones – which have yet to be written.

The committee also added a clause that affirmed Israel’s right to exist.

The original report called for the members of the MESC to be appointed to a “monitoring group” that would observe events in the Middle East for two years and then report again to the General Assembly. The amended version of the report reduces the MESC's representation on the monitoring group to one or two members.

According to Israel advocacy NGO CAMERA, “This change in the composition of the monitoring committee gets at the heart of the problem.”

“The Middle East Study Committee was fundamentally biased against Israel,” CAMERA explained. “One member had stated previously stated that in his heart of hearts he wanted a one-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. And another had stated that she could not reconcile herself to Israel’s 'right' to exist.”

“The appointment of members such as this to the Middle East Study Committee by one current and two past PC(USA) moderators in 2008 set the stage for disaster a the 2010 General Assembly,” the group commented, adding that it hopes the people who decide on the personal makeup of the monitoring group “will learn from past mistakes.”

The PC-USA did approve a resolution denouncing Caterpillar for selling its products to Israel, but it voted down two proposals to divest from the tractor manufacturer. It also reaffirmed a policy that calls on the U.S. to put strings on U.S. military aid to Israel.

“What is new at the 2010 General Assembly is that people started to realize that drawing attention to Palestinian suffering and working to end it does not require demonizing Israel,” CAMERA concluded. Committee members Susan Andrews and Ron Shive, who decided to amend the report, “took huge risks by acknowledging the problems with the report and by working to fix it.”

Alan Wisdom, of the Presbyterian Action Committee at The Institute on Religion & Democracy (IRD), said the PC-USA's statement could have been much harsher than it was. “They took out language comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa," he explained. "They greatly attenuated an endorsement of a Palestinian political manifesto that was very harsh against Israel. They introduced much stronger language affirming Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state."

He also said hat despite the General Assembly's resolutions, most members of the Presbyterian Church USA are more supportive of Israel than they are of the Palestinian Authority.

Ethan Felson of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs credited another influential PC-USA leader, Katharine Henderson, with facilitating the dialogue that led to the adoption of a more balanced report. "Over the course of the General Assembly, as people began to listen to each other, they realized the importance of the other narrative and really began to learn why people felt the way they did," Henderson told JTA.

A coalition of 12 national Jewish groups signed a JCPA statement welcoming the changes in the MESC report. "Rejection of overtures calling for the use of divestment and labeling Israeli policy as apartheid demonstrate a desire for broader understanding in the quest for peace," the statement said.

The Anti-Defamation League issued a separate statement that credited the assembly for having "averted a rupture," it condemned the recommendation that the U.S. consider withholding aid to pressure Israel.

Ambassador Oren to Address Christians United for Israel

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/138716

Av 10, 5770, 21 July 10 08:44

by Gil Ronen

(Israelnationalnews.com) Thousands of pastors and churchgoers are meeting this week in Washington D.C. at the annual conference of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). The group, which is led by pastor John Hagee, believes in a "Bible mandate" to support Israel and the Jewish people.

Speakers at the conference are to include Hagee and Israel's Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren.

CUFI was instrumental in the founding of Israel Allies Caucus in the United States Congress in 2006.

It's executive director, David Brog, is a Jew who says that the group does not seek to convert Jews to Christianity. Its stated goals are to “educate and build Christian support for Israel throughout America,” and to “rally evangelical Christians in support of Israel for biblical and moral reasons.”

CUFI says that it pursues its goals through the distribution of literature and DVDs, and by holding Middle East Briefings and annual Nights to Honor Israel in communities throughout the U.S.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government is well aware of the crucial importance of the evangelical Christian vote in the U.S. and has been maintaining a warm relationship with the stream. When Netanyahu addressed CUFI's Jerusalem Summit in March, he said: “Christian Zionism preceded modern Jewish Zionism, and I think enabled it.”

“Your presence here today represents a profound transformation in the relationship between Christians and Jews. This transformation has its roots in the 19th century when the early Christian Zionists came to the Land Israel and when they began exploring the land of the Bible, when they began to yearn for the Jewish restoration in this land, the restoration of our numbers, the restoration of our sovereignty.”

“Time after time, through thick and thin, you have stood shoulder to shoulder with our state, and I have come here tonight to thank you for your unwavering friendship. And today that friendship is more important than ever because Israel faces unprecedented challenges to its security and its legitimacy.”

Several weeks ago, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon addressed 2010 Epicenter conference in Philadelphia http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/news.aspx/138288 , and said the Israeli government wants to continue to strengthen its relationship with evangelical Christians. Israelis and evangelicals are "all in the same boat," he said.

Peres Pope to Discuss Peace Talks

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/139446

Elul 23, 5770, 02 September 10 08:12

by Maayana Miskin

(Israelnationalnews.com) President Shimon Peres plans to meet Thursday with Pope Benedict XVI in Italy. The two are to discuss the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

In addition, the two will talk about captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, Iran's nuclear program, and ties between Israel and the Vatican.

Peres met Wednesday with Gilad Shalit's parents, Noam and Aviva, in advance of his meeting with the Pope. “We must never lose hope, we must continue to fight for Gilad's return,” he said.

Shalit's parents have led a campaign to bring their son home even at the expense of releasing many hundreds of convicted terrorists, including those responsible for multiple murders. Peres praised the two for their struggle, saying, “I am proud of the noble way in which you are struggling to bring back your son Gilad, and I am proud of the Israeli public for standing at your side.”

Shalit's parents asked the president to use his influence to push for Gilad's release.

After meeting with the Pope, Peres plans to remain in Italy over the weekend to attend an economic and diplomatic conference and to defend Israel in the media.

Pope aide pulls out of trip after 'Third World jibe

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11317441

15 September 2010 Last updated at 15:42 ET

The Vatican said the cardinal was pulling out of the visit solely on health grounds

A senior Papal adviser has pulled out of the Pope's UK visit after saying arriving at Heathrow airport was like landing in a "Third World" country.

Cardinal Walter Kasper reportedly told a German magazine the UK was marked by "a new and aggressive atheism".

The Vatican said the cardinal had not intended "any kind of slight" and had simply pulled out due to illness.

The UK Cabinet Office said his views were personal and not representative of the Vatican or bishops in the UK.

They are saying it is ill health, but I wonder if that is the fact. I wonder if he has been dropped because he is an embarrassment”

End Quote Clifford Longley The Tablet

The German-born cardinal was quoted as saying to the country's Focus magazine that "when you land at Heathrow you think at times you have landed in a Third World country".

He also criticised British Airways (BA), saying that when you wear a cross on the airline "you are discriminated against".

'Talking nonsense'

In 2006 a BA employee was told to stop wearing a cross at work. She took the case to an employment tribunal claiming religious discrimination, but lost, also losing her subsequent appeal.

BA changed its uniform rules in 2007, allowing staff to display a faith or charity symbol.

Vatican sources said Cardinal Kasper - who stepped down in July as the head of the department that deals with other Christian denominations - was suffering from gout and had been advised by his doctors not to travel to the UK.

They also said his "Third World" comment referred to the UK's multicultural society.

The Cabinet Office said the cardinal had worked hard to build ecumenical relations between the Catholic and Anglican faiths.

Cardinal Walter Kasper

Born in the German town of Heidenheim in 1933

Ordained as a priest in 1957

Has a doctorate in dogmatic theology from the University of Tubingen

Appointed Bishop of Rottenburg-Stuttgart in 1989

President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity from 2001 to 2010

Won an award in 2004 for his lifetime's work on improving relations between Jews and Catholics

A spokesman said: "His comments do not represent the views of the Vatican, nor those of Bishops in this country. They are the personal views of one individual."

He said the visit would further develop the relationship between the UK and the Holy See following the Queen's State visits there in 1980 and 2000.

"The visit is an opportunity to take our co-operation with the Holy See on international issues to a new level. And all involved with the visit are sure it will be a success," he said.

Not all of the cardinal's comments in the interview were critical of the UK.

He also said: "Everyone who knows England knows that there is also a great Christian tradition there."

The Pope is spending four days in Scotland and England, starting on Thursday.

The BBC's correspondent in Rome, David Willey, said the cardinal's reported comments were "a slightly clumsy thing to have done on the eve of the visit".

However, he added that he did not think it would have much effect on the Pope's trip to the UK.

Clifford Longley, from Catholic newspaper The Tablet, said the cardinal was "obviously talking nonsense".

"I don't think he believes Britain is in the grip of secular atheism, and he shouldn't have said so," said Mr Longley.

"They are saying it is ill health [that has forced the cardinal to drop out of the visit], but I wonder if that is the fact. I wonder if he has been dropped because he is an embarrassment."

British Airways said the cardinal had been "seriously misinformed" in his claims about the airline.

"It is completely untrue that we discriminate against Christians or members of any faith," it said in a statement.

The inquiry into Ettore Gotti Tedeschi has surprised the Vatican

The head of the Vatican Bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, is under investigation as part of a money-laundering inquiry, police sources say.

Prosecutors also seized 23m euros ($30m; £19m) from the bank's accounts with another smaller institution.

The inquiry was launched after two suspicious transactions were reported to tax police in Rome.

The Vatican said it was "perplexed and astonished", and expressed full confidence in Mr Tedeschi.

The Vatican Bank, known officially as the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), was created during World War II to administer accounts held by religious orders, cardinals, bishops and priests.

Police intervention

The Holy See is perplexed and astonished by the initiatives of the Rome prosecutors”

End Quote Vatican statement

Rome magistrates are looking into claims that Mr Gotti Tedeschi and the bank's chief executive Paolo Cipriani violated laws that require banks to disclose information on financial operations.

The BBC's David Willey in Rome says the Bank of Italy's financial intelligence unit tipped off Italy's tax police last week, after two suspicious transactions were reported between the Vatican Bank and two different Italian banks.

The tax police seized 23m euros that the Vatican Bank had tried to transfer from a small Italian bank called Credito Artigianato.

Some 20m euros was destined for JP Morgan in Frankfurt, with the remainder going to another Italian bank, Banca del Fucino.

Reports say the Vatican Bank had failed to inform the financial authorities where the money had come from.

Past scandal

In a statement, the Vatican strongly defended its record.

"The Holy See is perplexed and astonished by the initiatives of the Rome prosecutors, considering the data necessary is already available at the Bank of Italy," the statement said.

And the Vatican also gave its backing to the two officials under investigation.

"The Holy See wants to express the maximum confidence in the president and in the chief executive of the IOR," it said.

Mr Gotti Tedeschi, who is an expert on financial ethics, has been in charge of the bank for a year. He was formerly head of Spanish bank Santander's Italian operations.

The Vatican Bank was last mired in scandal in 1982 when its governor Archbishop Paul Marcinkus was indicted over his involvement with the collapse of what was then Italy's largest private bank, Banco Ambrosiano.

Although he was never arrested, the fallout from that scandal took a darker turn when two of its top executives, one of them its chairman, Roberto Calvi, were murdered.

Calvi, known as God's Banker because of his close ties to the Vatican, was found hanged under Blackfriars Bridge in London.

Pope dismays anti-Mafia activists on Sicily visit

Activists claim he didn't say the word Mafia and wasn't forceful enough

07/23/6992 [5771] 1st day of the week (10/03/10)

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39484767/ns/world_news-europe

 

PALERMO, Sicily — Pope Benedict encouraged Sicilians on Sunday to speak out about their problems, including organized crime, but disappointed activists who said he was not forceful enough and did not say the word Mafia.

Benedict, making his first visit to Sicily as pope, said an open-air mass for tens of thousands of people near the Sicilian capital's port at the start of his day-long trip.

In his homily, the pope spoke of many of Sicily's pressing problems, including high unemployment, and of those who were "suffering physically and morally ... because of organized crime".

"I am here to give you strong encouragement not to be afraid to speak out clearly about human and Christian values ...," he said.

Sicily is no longer the scene of the Mafia wars of the 1990s, magistrates say the mob still does brisk business in drug trafficking, extortion and getting a slice of lucrative public works contracts for companies it controls.

Benedict's homily was sprinkled with phrases such as a biblical reference to "a tremendous situation of violence" and the need to be "ashamed by evil", but leading anti-Mafia activists said he did not go far enough.

"It is a great disappointment. I think the people of Palermo will be disappointed," said Rita Borsellino, whose brother Paolo, a leading anti-Mafia magistrate, was killed by a Mafia car bomb in Palermo in 1992.

"I was disappointed in the lack of force in what he said," she told Reuters. "I think it is indulging the Mafia too much to just call it organized crime and not call it by name. I hope he is stronger when he speaks to young people later today."

Paolo Borsellino was one of two magistrates killed in twin attacks in 1992. The other was Giovanni Falcone, who was blown up with his wife and his three-man police escort when the Mafia planted a massive bomb under the highway near Palermo airport.

The pope passed the spot on his way into the city.

During the open-air mass, a prayer was said by the congregation about the need not to be mere "spectators against violence".

The pope mentioned Father Paolo Puglisi, who was killed by the Mafia in 1993.

Dino Paternostro, a leading anti-Mafia activist in the town of Corleone made famous in the "The Godfather" films, also expressed disappointment.

"There were great expectations for what he would say. I really do hope he is stronger and more specific in the afternoon because the way things stand it seems like he is saying 'the Mafia is your problem'," Paternostro told Reuters.

Whatever Benedict says will inevitably be compared to a visit to Sicily by Pope John Paul II in 1993.

Before leaving the city of Agrigento, John Paul improvised a scathing and specific attack on the Mafia which has gone down in anti-Mafia history.

Speaking in a raised voice and with a clenched fist, John Paul thundered against Mafiosi, warning them directly that unless they "converted" to good, they would one day be subjected to God's judgement for their blood letting and misdeeds.

Rome 'crisis' talks on Middle East Christians

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11509256

10 October 2010 Last updated at 00:35 ET

By David Willey BBC News, Rome

Many Iraqi Christians have fled the country because sectarian violence and persecution

Catholic bishops from the Middle East begin talks in Rome on how to maintain a Christian presence in the lands where Jesus Christ lived and died.

A century ago, 20% of the population in the region was Christian. Today Christians account for only about 5% and their numbers are still dwindling.

This is a matter of great concern to Pope Benedict who has called the talks.

For the first time Jewish rabbis and an Iranian ayatollah will attend the two-week discussions as special guests.

Old divisions

Pope Benedict has called Church leaders from all over the Middle East for the discussions not only on the Palestinian-Israeli dispute, but how to combat radical Islam and how to try to stem the continuing exodus of Christians from Iraq.

A working document prepared by experts for this synod says about half of the former 850,000 Christians living in Iraq have fled their country because of sectarian violence and persecution.

In Lebanon, too, political instability is driving Christians to leave.

The Christians of the Middle East have also been weakened by centuries-old divisions.

Catholics are divided into seven different churches, each with its own traditions going back centuries.

The working document urges the different churches to work with each other in order to wield more influence in Arab societies.

It advises them to open up to other churches and faiths, to simplify their ancient liturgies, and to introduce more Arabic into their services.

The secretary of the synod, Monsignor Nicola Eterovic, told a news conference at the Vatican that although many Arab, Turkish and Iranian Christians had left the region, their place had been taken - particularly in the Gulf states - by new arrivals of Catholics from the Philippines and India.

Tony Blair and Christopher Hitchens debate religion

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11843586

27 November 2010 Last updated at 01:08 ET

Tony Blair and Christopher Hitchens debated the idea 'Religion is a force for good in the world'

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has defended the role of religion in global affairs, in a Canadian TV debate with atheist columnist Christopher Hitchens

Mr Blair, a Catholic convert, said faith was a force for good and it was "futile" to attempt to drive it out.

But Mr Hitchens, who is terminally ill with cancer, argued religion forced people into doing terrible things.

In a vote after the debate, the audience voted two-to-one in Mr Hitchens' favour.

A 23-country poll paid for by the debate's Canadian organisers suggests the world is evenly split on the issue.

The confrontation took place in front of a sell-out audience of 2,700 people in Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall.

The two men were asked to debate the motion: "That religion is a force for good in the world".

'Cruel experiment'

The BBC's Paul Adams, who was in the hall, said it was a carefully moderated and largely polite debate, without the rumbles of thunder many had been hoping for.

Tony Blair

• Former Labour PM, aged 57

• Brought up in a Christian family, he says he became a practising Christian while studying at Oxford University

• Converted to Catholicism in 2007

• Launched Tony Blair Faith Foundation in 2008

Christopher Hitchens

• Sixty-one-year-old journalist, author and critic

• Refused to take part in prayers at his Christian boarding school

• Says his "bohemian and rackety" lifestyle may have caused his cancer of the oesophagus

• Regarded as a leader of the "New Atheism"

• Blair and Hitchens keep the gloves on

Mr Blair, a lifelong Christian who converted to Catholicism after leaving office in 2007, acknowledged that "horrific acts" had been committed in the name of religion.

But he said that a "world without faith would be morally diminished".

He said the most challenging issue for people of faith was how to explain the relevance of ancient scripture in the modern world.

The former British prime minister also insisted that his decision to support the US invasion of Iraq was based on policy and not on his faith.

Mr Hitchens, who has previously described Christianity, Judaism and Islam as the "real axis of evil", said religion was "a cruel experiment whereby we are created sick and ordered to be well".

Humans gained little, and compromised their freedom, by acting like sheep, said Mr Hitchens.

He said religions created a "celestial dictatorship" which was "greedy for praise from dawn to dusk". He won a laugh from the audience and Mr Blair when he compared such an authority to the North Korean leadership.

In the end, the audience seemed more impressed, and perhaps more entertained, by Mr Hitchens, says our correspondent, and he won the debate by a margin of two to one.

Global poll

Prior to the debate, the organisers had commisioned a 23-country poll on religion by Ipsos.

Analysis

Paul Adams BBC News, Toronto

________________________________________

Anyone expecting verbal pugilism, or a blood-soaked gladitorial contest, with Tony Blair as the Christian thrown to the hungry atheist lion, might have walked out into Toronto's chilly night a little disappointed.

It's not that the two men didn't debate with conviction, but the format engendered politeness - this is Canada, after all- and somewhat stifled argument.

And perhaps the lion is wounded. Mr Hitchens is starting to look frail, in the throes of a cancer that he acknowledges will probably kill him. Tony Blair, by contrast, looks a picture of well-dressed health.

When asked which of each other's arguments they found convincing, both men were polite, respectful.

Tony Blair admitted that it wasn't always easy for people of faith to explain the importance of scripture in the modern world.

Mr Hitchens admitted no such intellectual difficulties, saying he preferred the awe-inspiring wonders of the cosmos to what he sees as the destructive teachings of organised religion.

An audience of 2,700 sat in rapt attention, frequently applauding both men. But a random sample afterwards tended to tell a consistent story. People weren't necessarily opposed to Mr Blair's argument, but they found Mr Hitchens the more persuasive speaker.

Some 48% of the 18,192 people questioned by Ipsos took the view that "religion provides the common values and ethical foundations that diverse societies need to the thrive in the 21st Century".

Fractionally more - 52% - supported the view that "religious beliefs promote intolerance, exacerbate ethnic divisions, and impede social progress in developing and developed nations alike".

Rich countries were less likely to see religion as a force for good than poor countries - the main exception being the United States, where 65% said it had a positive impact.

The Ipsos poll, conducted in September, found that Europe was the region most doubtful about the benefits of religion, with just 19% in Sweden agreeing that it was a force for good.

At the other end of the scale, in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia, it was seen as a positive force by more than 90% of those questioned.

Within North America, there was a pronounced divide. In Canada, only 36% agreed with the positive view of religion whereas 64% saw it as a negative force - figures almost exactly the reverse of those in the US.

Christopher Hitchens has continued his outspoken attacks on religion in interviews as he is treated for cancer of the oesophagus.

He is scathing about those who suggest his illness might lead him to retract his atheism.

In a BBC Newsnight interview to be broadcast on 29 November, he says he is not afraid of death, but regrets the fact that it will cause distress to friends and family.

Blair v Hitchens on the BBC

• BBC World Service radio will air the Blair-Hitchens debate on 4 December, followed by Radio 4 on 11 December

• It can be viewed on BBC World News and the News Channel on 1 January 2011

In comments released by the debate's organisers he said it was "bizarre" that Mr Blair, a Catholic since 2007, had converted "at one of the most conservative times for the Catholic Church, under one of the most conservative popes".

Speaking before the debate, Tony Blair said: "The good that people of faith all over the world do every day, motivated by their religion, cannot be underestimated and should never be ignored."

It could, and should, be a force for progress, he said.

Pope to Kick off Spanish Election Campaign on World Youth Day

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/146723

Av 14, 5771, 14/08/11 01:11

World Youth Day, culminating in a papal visit, is to be the curtain raiser of the Spanish election campaign.

Amiel Ungar

Spain's election campaign preceding the November elections is ironically going to be kicked off by Pope Benedict XVI.

The pontiff will arrive in Madrid on August 18 for four days to celebrate World Youth Day, a Catholic sponsored event that brings young people worldwide together. It combines a pilgrimage with a music festival complete with outdoor masses, religious processions, concerts and cultural exhibits. World Youth Day is held once every three years and will last for six days.

While billed as non-political, the event emphasizes the religious fault line in Spanish politics.

The opposition Popular Party that expects to return to power following eight years in opposition is strongly associated with the country's Catholic subculture.

The ruling Socialist Party and parties further to the left are associated with the lay all the way to the anti-clerical subculture.

While the post-Franco constitution adopted in 1978 when the country returned to democratic rule pledged to respect the position of the church, since 2004 the Socialist government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has weakened that position. For example, in 2005 it passed a same-sex marriage bill and streamlined the divorce process. It now takes 10 days when beforehand it took two years to get a divorce in Spain.

The fear that the Popular Party's predicted return to power will mean a reversal of these policies will be used by the Socialists for political recruitment, as they are on shaky economic grounds given the meltdown.

This has stoked opposition to World Youth Day. Dozens of secularists and left-wing groups plan to stage a march against the visit and a major trade union is threatening a strike at the Madrid Metro network to coincide with the visit.

For the Catholics, on the other hand, it will be a show of strength providing enthusiasm for the oncoming campaign. When the event was scheduled nobody knew that elections would be advanced, but undoubtedly the considerations of a Catholic pushback figured in the selection of Madrid to host the event.

The left points to the anomaly that while transit fares are being raised in Madrid, the foreign participants will receive a heavily discounted one week pass on public transport. The Popular Party runs Madrid and many other towns following its victory in the municipal elections.

Both sides of the debate are hiding behind economics. The left is complaining that at a time of austerity it is a provocation to allocate government funds for the event, including the massive security. The organizers reply that the pilgrims will inject a substantial amount of money into the Spanish economy and create jobs.

The event is essentially self- financing – most of the funding will come from pilgrim registration fees and the shortfall will be made up by corporate donations. The left in response plans to boycott the event's sponsors including Coca-Cola, Santander Bank and Telefonica.

Jews worried by Vatican gesture to traditionalists

http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/jews-worried-by-vatican-gesture-to-traditionalists-1.385352

Published 12:49 19.09.11

Latest update 12:49 19.09.11

Traditionalist group includes Holocaust-denying bishop; Anti-Defamation League's U.S. director says it would be 'unthinkable' for the Vatican to allow the the bishop 'to promote anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism.'

By The Associated PressTags: Jewish WorldHolocaust denialanti-Semitism

Some Jewish groups voiced concern Friday that the Vatican might be calling into question more than 40 years of progress in Catholic-Jewish relations by reaching out to a group of breakaway traditionalist Catholics that includes a Holocaust-denying bishop.

The Vatican has been working for years to bring the breakaway Society of St. Pius X back into its fold, and this week told its members they must accept some core church teachings if they want to be fully reintegrated into the church. But the Holy See said some expressions contained in documents from the Second Vatican Council could be left open for "legitimate discussion."

The 1962-65 Vatican II meetings brought modernizing reforms to the Catholic Church, including outreach to Jews and introduction of the Mass in the vernacular rather than Latin. The Swiss-based Society of St. Pius X was formed in 1969, opposed to many of Vatican II's reforms.

The Vatican refused to say which core teachings the society must accept to be reintegrated, and which elements of Vatican II documents could be left open for discussion.

A key Vatican II document, Nostra Aetate, revolutionized the Catholic Church's relations with Jews by declaring that Christ's death couldn't be attributed to Jews as a whole. Other Vatican II teachings to which the society objects concern religious freedom and ecumenical relations.

The uncertainty over what is being required of the society provoked unease among some Jewish groups, which issued veiled warnings Friday about the possible impact on Vatican-Jewish relations were Nostra Aetate and other Vatican II teachings to be now considered ripe for discussion.

Abraham Foxman, the Anti-Defamation League's U.S. director, said he was confident that Pope Benedict XVI would require the society to accept the church's "positive teachings" about Jews before being fully reconciled with the church.

"It would be unthinkable for the Vatican to allow a Catholic breakaway sect that includes a Holocaust-denying bishop, Richard Williamson, to be reintegrated into the church while still being allowed to promote anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism," he said in a statement.

Elan Steinberg of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants, said there would be "catastrophic effects" on Catholic-Jewish relations if the Vatican didn't require the society to accept the document.

"We mustn't allow the moral imperative of Catholic-Jewish amity to fall victim to a policy of appeasement or blithe expediency," he said in a statement.

Even Rabbi David Rosen, who heads the American Jewish Committee's interreligious affairs office and is a veteran of Catholic-Jewish dialogue, said he was worried about the Vatican's gesture and awaited further clarification.

"If 'Nostra Aetate' and 'Lumen Gentium' (another Vatican II document) are not considered fundamental doctrines of the Church, and it is possible to question them without challenging the authority of the church, then we (and not just Jewish-Catholic relations) are in for a very rough ride ahead," he said in an email.
The society's superior, Bishop Bernard Fellay, has said he would study the two-page document of core church teachings handed over to him by the Vatican and respond.
The German-born Benedict has worked for two decades, as pope and as cardinal, to bring the group back into the Vatican's fold, eager to prevent further schism and the expansion of a parallel church.

Benedict, who has won praise from Jews for his decades of outreach, nevertheless provoked outrage in 2009 when he lifted the excommunication of Williamson, who denied gas chambers were used during the Holocaust. Williamson, Fellay and three other bishops were excommunicated in 1988 after the society's founder consecrated them without papal consent.

The society has six seminaries, three universities and 70 primary and secondary schools around the globe. Aside from the four bishops, it boasts more than 550 priests and 200 seminarians.

German Jewish Leaders to Meet with Pope Benedict XVI

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/148186

Elul 23, 5771, 22/09/11 05:46

German Jews are to meet with German-born Pope Benedict XVI, led by Germany's Israeli-born leader, Dieter Graumann.

Chana Ya'ar

Germany's top Jewish leader will lead a delegation to meet with the German-born Pope Benedict XVI this week.

The pontiff began a four-day visit on Thursday, his third return to his homeland since 2005, when during his first trip back he went to visit a synagogue in Cologne. The second time, in 2006, he denounced the mass murder of European Jewry during a visit to the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in neighboring Poland. He has also visited Israel, against the backdrop of numerous negotiations between Vatican officials and the Israeli government over properties held by the Holy See.

Dieter Graumann was swamped with reporters asking for his feelings about meeting with the worldwide leader of the Roman Catholic Church.

“I think it is a wonderful sign that the pope is taking time right at the beginning of his busy schedule for us,” Graumann said. “It is a signal of friendship, of big-heartedness and underlines that the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and Judaism has improved considerably in the past few decades,” he added. “There is so much more that binds us, than divides us.”

Graumann, 61, whose family moved to Germany from Israel when he was a child, was appointed as national Jewish leader last year.

As such, he will also approach the 84-year-old pontiff on the delicate issue of his decision in 2009 to rehabilitate a bishop who is a virulent Holocaust denier, along with three other similarly anti-Semitic clergymen. Benedict has also moved ahead with a decision to beatify a controversial World War II pontiff, Pope Pius XII and revived a prayer for the conversion of Jews – decisions that have ignited fury in many Jewish corners.

PA Plan: Use UN to Cement Claims to Jewish Holy Sites

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/148642

Tishrei 12, 5772, 10/10/11 02:54

The PA plans to use anticipated membership in UN committee to make claims on Jewish holy sites in Judea, Samaria.

Maayana Miskin

The Palestinian Authority plans to use membership in the United Nations’ UNESCO cultural committee to lay claims to Jewish holy sites, PA ministers said Monday, speaking to Reuters.

PA Minister of Culture Hamdan Taha said the PA would seek World Heritage status for several sites, beginning with Bethlehem. The PA has already had some success in claiming Bethlehem sites for the Arab world – in 2010, UNESCO agreed to declare the Tomb of Rachel a mosque and “an integral part of the occupied Palestinian territories.”

UNESCO also agreed to criticize Israel for declaring the Tomb of the Patriarchs (Me'arat Hamachpelah), in which most of the Jewish patriarchs and matriarchs are buried, an Israeli heritage site. The organization responded to Israeli protests by erasing them from the record; Israel responded by cutting ties with UNESCO.

The PA will seek UNESCO recognition for its claims in Hevron as well, Taha said. It will also seek recognition for Shechem, the Shomron (Samaria) city that is home to Joseph’s Tomb.

“We think that every old city has the right to prepare a nomination file” for heritage site status, Taha said.

Another site the PA hopes to earn heritage status for is the Dead Sea, he stated.

The PA bid to seek full UNESCO membership has led to conflict as the U.S. warns that by accepting the PA, UNESCO will be putting its U.S. funding at risk. U.S. Secretary of State termed UNESCO’s decision to vote on PA membership “inexplicable,” and said the group should leave voting to the United Nations.

Expose: The Vatican Wants to Lay its Hands on Jerusalem

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/150757#.TupRAGPFnvB

Kislev 19, 5772, 15/12/11 04:14

The Vatican is now reiterating demands for control of religious sites in Jerusalem. Jordan's occupation 1948-1967 didn't bother them.

Giulio Meotti, Italy

“Peace negotiations in the Middle East must tackle the issue of the status of the holy sites of Jerusalem”, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue, declared several days ago in Rome.

The Vatican’s former foreign minister asked to place some Israeli holy places under Vatican authority, alluding to the Cenacle on Mount Zion and the garden of Gethsemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

The first site also houses what is referred to as King David’s tomb.

“There will not be peace if the question of the holy sites is not adequately resolved”, Tauran said. “The part of Jerusalem within the walls – with the holy sites of the three religions – is humanity’s heritage. The sacred and unique character of the area must be safeguarded and it can only be done with a special, internationally-guaranteed statute”.

The Israeli government and the Vatican are deadlocked in discussions over the status of the religious sites. Vatican officials are now reiterating their demand for control over the religious sites in the ancient and holy city founded by King David as the capital of ancient Israel and now the capital of the reestablished Jewish state.

Danny Ayalon, Israel’s deputy foreign minister, declared that Israel might consider giving the Vatican “a greater role” in operating the sites. In the last weeks, the Roman Catholic Church’s authorities increased their political initiatives for Catholic control over some sites in Jerusalem.

The Vatican’s former arcibishop in Jerusalem, Michel Sabbah, just promoted an appeal to the European Union and United States to “stop the Hebraization of Jerusalem”.

Two weeks ago Msgr. David-Maria Jaeger, who was recently appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to the Vatican’s highest court, talked in Washington about a current U.S. Supreme Court case over whether an American boy born in Jerusalem should add Israel after the name of the historic city on his U.S. passport. Jaeger said that the question about Jerusalem is not “whether it is the capital of Israel, it is a question of whether it is a part of a national territory”.

A few days earlier, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, gave a speech to greet the bishops of Europe and North America during their annual pilgrimage in Israel, in which Twal denounced “the Israeli right wing invading more and more of Jerusalem and trying to transform it into an only Hebrew-Jewish city, excluding the other faiths”.

Claudette Habesch, the Caritas general-secretary in Jerusalem, a Vatican NGO that works in social activities, just released an interview to Zenit news agency, in which he “christianized” the Palestinian Intifada against “what we call the Checkpoint of Humiliation”.

In September, Patriarch of Jerusalem Twal was at the White House for a meeting with the American administration as well as to support the PA statehood bid at the UN. Twal repeated Benedict XVI’s speech of May 13, 2009 in the Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, one of the most political speeches ever pronounced by Ratzinger during his pontificate. It was given in front of the most eloquent symbol of the conflict: the security wall between Israel and the PA areas.

On that day the Pope spoke specifically of an “independent Palestinian state”.

The Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi, the Vatican’s powerful agency for worldwide pilgrimages, just organized a “marathon for peace” in Jerusalem to protest against the security fence near Bethlehem and to support "Palestinian political rights". The march began on the Mount of Olives, “where the Last Supper took place”.

On December 1st, several Christian and Muslim dignitaries met in Beit Sahour for a conference on “How to live together in a future Palestinian state?”. Patriarch Emeritus of Jerusalem Michel Sabbah and Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, also attended the event organized by Al-Liqa, a Vatican ecumenical center based in Bethlehem.

Sabbah said that “recourse to the UN for a Palestinian state is a step toward peace”. Last summer, Latin Patriarch Twal took part in a meeting in London with Anglican Archbishop Rowan Williams of Canterbury, in which the Vatican envoy denounced the “more than 550.000 Israelis living in East Jerusalem and the West Bank” and “the demography of Jerusalem changing rapidly with the sacred space being threatened”.

In 2006, then Israel’s Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, negotiated to give away the “holy basin” to the Vatican.

At the time, President Moshe Katzav, in the face of increasing public pressure, was forced to deny any plans to sign away the King David’s complex in Jerusalem.

It now appears that this option has once again surfaced. A major voice for the Vatican’s plan is Hanna Siniora, the elder statesman of Palestinian 'peace' activists, whose office is in the Vatican’s Tantur Institute for Ecumenical Studies in Jerusalem.

The site known as King David’s Tomb is the major target in the Vatican’s plan. It’s a complex of buildings of some 100,000 square feet where David and Solomon, and kings of Judea, are said to be buried, although this is disputed by historians.

The Upper Room, or Cenacle, as it is known, is on the second floor of the Crusader-era building. During his visit to Israel in 2000, Pope John Paul II held Mass there. The Roman Catholic Church has been fighting for more than 450 years to win back control over the sanctuary, which was seized from Franciscan monks during the Ottoman Empire's rule around 1551.

The building was granted to the Diaspora Yeshiva over 40 years ago, and yeshiva heads fear that the Vatican wishes to turn it into a pilgrimage site for hundreds of thousands of Catholics and hold religious services there.

The Vatican wants Israel relinquishing sovereignty at the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. The Holy See uses the expression “Holy Basin”, which refers to the area of the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion and a variety of Christian holy sites which the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton began reccomending be administered under a “special regime”.

Reversing JFK: Santorum’s bid to marry faith and politics

http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/07/seeking-to-reverse-jfk-santorum-marries-catholicism-and-politics/?hpt=hp_c4

Editor’s note: This is part of an occasional series of stories looking at the faith of the leading 2012 presidential candidates, including Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich. We also profiled the faith journey of Herman Cain before he suspended his campaign.

By Dan Gilgoff and Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editors

01/07/12

(CNN) – It was election night in November 2006, and Rick Santorum had organized a private Catholic Mass in a room at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. The senator from Pennsylvania had just lost his re-election bid.

The Mass, held just before his concession speech, included a priest and Santorum’s close family and staff. Though the occasion was somber, the soon-to-be-ex-senator aimed for a celebratory mood, said Mark Rodgers, then a top Santorum aide.

“Life is if full of what can be perceived as disappointments or hardships,” Rodgers said, “but Scripture tells followers of Jesus that we approach those situations with joy because there’s ultimate redemption.”

Santorum’s younger brother, Dan, remembers that many attendees - including the senator’s children - were weeping over Santorum’s landslide defeat at the hands of Democrat Bob Casey Jr.

But not the senator.

“You’d think he would have been crushed,” says Dan Santorum. “But he wasn’t even bitter. He didn’t complain. He just said it was God’s plan.

“That’s when I knew he was going to run for president of the United States,” Dan continued. “Because I think that God had another plan for him.”

It’s unclear if Rick Santorum, whose strong finish in the Iowa caucuses has breathed new life into his presidential campaign, interpreted his Senate loss the same way.

But the hotel Mass, and Santorum’s apparent placidity in the face of an overwhelming defeat, illustrate what confidants say is the key to understanding him as a person and politician: a devout Catholic faith that has deepened dramatically through political and personal battles.

“When I first met him he was an observant Catholic but a fairly privatized one,” says Rodgers, who ran Santorum’s first race for the U.S. House in 1990 and served as a key Santorum aide in Congress for 16 years.

“The journey I saw him on was a gradual awakening to the importance of faith at an operational level within a democracy, the idea that free people need to have a moral foundation.

“The journey was also personal - growing in faith and sharing it with others,” Rodgers says.

Many politicians have ideological concerns about issues like abortion or gay marriage, but “in Santorum’s case, it’s fundamentally religious,” says Richard Land, public policy chief at the Southern Baptist Convention. “That’s the genetic code of his life.”

It’s also the part that most inspires his political backers - among them the Iowa evangelicals who helped fuel his stunning Iowa finish, eight votes behind winner Mitt Romney - and most enrages critics, who take deep offense at Santorum’s views on divisive issues like homosexuality, which he once lumped together with bestiality in a discussion of legal rights.

“I think it’s fair to say that he’s sometimes harsh in the way he makes those arguments,” says Michael Gerson, a speechwriter for former President George W. Bush.

Indeed, even Santorum’s own party is seeing a faith-based split around his presidential campaign, with evangelicals who dominate the primaries in states like Iowa on one side and more establishment Republicans in states like New Hampshire on the other.

As he works to convince skeptical voters he has a real shot at winning the White House, Santorum’s religious faith has emerged as both his chief political asset and his biggest liability.

Kennedy's ‘sealed off’ wall

His Catholicism may have deepened as an adult, but Santorum also has deep Catholic roots.

“Three pictures hung in the home of my devoutly Catholic immigrant grandparents when I was a boy,” he said in a speech last year. “I remember them well: Jesus, Pope Paul VI and John F. Kennedy.”

Santorum attended Mass with his brother, sister and parents virtually every Sunday. “You basically had to be on your deathbed not to go to church,” says Dan Santorum.

US Republican hopeful Romney rejects same-sex marriage

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/18046282

12 May 2012 Last updated at 16:31 ET

Mitt Romney, the man likely to be the Republican candidate in this year's US presidential election, has rejected the legitimacy of same-sex marriage.

"Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman," he told graduates at Liberty University, a Christian college in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Mr Romney, a Mormon by religion, was given a standing ovation.
Barack Obama, fighting for re-election as president in November, announced his support for gay marriage this week.

It was seen as a politically risky move, especially in the South, where one in three swing voters strongly opposes allowing gays and lesbians to wed.

Virginia is regarded as a key battleground in November.

Addressing the graduation ceremony at Liberty University, Mr Romney avoided talking about his own faith but stressed the importance of Christian values in American society.

He has so far struggled to gain support from evangelical Christians in his campaign for the Republican ticket, the BBC's Jonathan Blake reports from Washington.

"There is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action," he told the audience.

While Mr Romney opposes gay marriage, he has said that same-sex couples should have some rights, including the ability to adopt children.

Vatican slams new book of leaked documents as ‘criminal’

The Vatican is threatening to take legal action against those responsible for publishing a new book of leaked internal documents. The book sheds light on power struggles and corruption inside the Holy See and the thinking of its embattled top banker.

Pope Benedict XVI has already appointed a commission of cardinals to investigate the “Vatileaks” scandal. It erupted earlier this year with the publication of leaked memos alleging corruption and mismanagement in Holy See affairs and internal squabbles over its efforts to comply with international anti-money-laundering norms.

The publication Saturday of “His Holiness” by Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi, added fuel to the fire, reproducing confidential letters and memos to and from Pope Benedict and his personal secretary which, according to the Vatican, violated the pope's right to privacy.

Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi said in a statement Saturday the book was an “objectively defamatory” work that “clearly assumes characters of a criminal act.” He warned the Holy See would get to the bottom of who “stole” the documents, who received them and who published them. He warned the Holy See would seek international cooperation in its quest for justice, presumably with Italian magistrates.

The Vatican had already warned of legal action against Nuzzi after he published letters in January from the former second-highest Vatican administrator to the pope. In those letters the administrator begged not to be transferred for having exposed alleged corruption that cost the Holy See millions of euros in higher contract prices. The prelate, Monsignor Carlo Maria Vigano, is now the Vatican's US ambassador.

Nuzzi, author of Vatican SpA, a 2009 volume laying out shady dealings of the Vatican Bank based on leaked documents, said he was approached by sources inside the Vatican with the trove of new documents. Most of them are of fairly recent vintage and many of them painting the Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, in a negative light.

Much of the documentation is fairly Italy-centric: about a 2009 scandal over the ex-editor of the newspaper of the Italian bishops' conference, a previously-unknown dinner between Benedict and Italy's president, and even a 2011 letter from Italy's pre-eminent talk show host Bruno Vespa to the pope enclosing a check for 10,000 euro for his charity work and asking for a private audience in exchange.

But there are international leaks as well, including diplomatic cables from Vatican embassies from Jerusalem to Cameroon. Some concern the conclusions of the pope's delegate to the disgraced Legion of Christ religious order. In a memo sent to the pope last autumn he warned that the financial situation of the order, beset by a scandal over its pedophile founder, “while not grave, is serious and pressing.”

Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, the head of the Institute for Religious Works, otherwise known as the Vatican Bank, gets significant ink. His private memos to the pope with his take on the Vatican's response to the global financial crisis and how to handle the church's tax exempt status amid Italian government efforts to crack down on tax evasion have also been published.

The bank has been trying for some two years to remedy its reputation as a shady tax haven beset by scandals. One of them is the collapse of Italy's Banco Ambrosiano and the death of its head, Roberto Calvi, who also helped manage Vatican investments and was found hanging from London's Blackfriars Bridge in 1982.

In a bid to show it has mended its ways, the Institute for Religious Works this week invited ambassadors from 35 countries in for a tour and a chat with its managing director as part of a new transparency campaign. The tour came on the same day Holy See representatives were in Strasbourg discussing the first draft of a report from a Council of Europe committee on the Vatican's compliance with international norms to fight money laundering and terrorism financing.

British Ambassador Nigel Baker, who went on the Institute for Religious Works tour, later blogged that the Vatican's reputation depends on showing that its institutions are transparent.

“Plenty still needs to be done. But the Holy See needs to stick to its guns. It is in their interest, and ours,” Baker wrote.

Former 'God’s Banker' could blitz Vatican with cache of secret documents

http://www.rt.com/news/tedeschi-vatican-vatileaks-banker-vatileaks-546/

Published: 10 June, 2012, 20:21

The former head of the Vatican Bank has become the Papacy’s Enemy Number One, after police discovered a trove of documents exposing financial misdeeds in the Holy See. The banker now reportedly fears for his life.

¬Earlier this week police conducted a dawn raid on the house and office of Ettore Gotti Tedeschi. Investigators say they were looking for evidence in a graft case against defense and aerospace firm Finmeccanica, which was formerly run by a close friend of Gotti Tedeschi.

Instead, as it turns out, police stumbled upon an entirely different find.

They discovered 47 binders containing private communication exposing the opaque inner workings of the secretive Holy See. They included financial documents, details of money transfers and confidential internal reports – all prepared by Gotti Tedeschi to build a convincing expose of corruption in the Vatican.

A renowned economics professor and head of the Italian branch of the giant Bank of Santander Gotti Tedeschi took what turned out to be a poisoned chalice of a job in 2009, when he became the President of the Institute for Works of Religion, the formal name for the Bank of Vatican. His brief was formidable – to introduce transparency to a lucrative enterprise that had become a byword for money-laundering and corruption.

After a tumultuous three years marked by in-fighting and public scandals, Gotti Tedeschi was unanimously dismissed from his post by a board of Vatican officials in May.

“I have paid for my transparency” the indignant banker said to the media, as he stormed off even before his dismissal hearing was over.

The confidential minutes of the stormy meeting obtained by Reuters showed the banker accused of "progressively erratic personal behavior" and "exhibiting lack of prudence and accuracy in comments regarding the Institute".

But there may have been other reasons.

Aware that his crusade against corruption was failing, Gotti Tedeschi probably began to leak important documents to the media.

The drip-drip of damaging revelations (alongside more personal ones presumably passed onto the media by the Pope’s own butler) has been dubbed 'Vatileaks', and has captivated Italy in recent months.

At the hearing, the board that dismissed the banker also indirectly accused Gotti Tedeschi of being behind some of the leaks, pointing to his "Failure to provide any formal explanation for the dissemination of documents last known to be in the president's possession."

While the leaks were a weapon with which to attack his enemies, Gotti Tedeschi was also preparing a last resort option if the battle was lost – a ‘suicide belt’ that would blow the lid off Vatican.

Several months ago, he reportedly told his friends that he began collecting an exhaustive dossier “in case something happened to him.”

It is this dossier that the police have now apparently discovered.

The Vatican is barely concealing its panic – and wants the folders handed back unopened.

“We have faith that the prosecutors and Italian judicial system will respect our sovereignty—recognized internationally—with regard to these documents,” said an official statement.

But there is little chance the Papacy will get its way this time.

Italian prosecutors have frequently been at loggerheads with the Vatican and have accused it of using its sovereignty as a shield against proper regulation.

If the documents do spark a legal firestorm, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi is sure to be a key witness in any trial. A former employee against his employers, and a conservative Catholic pitched against the Vatican itself.

Allegedly, Gotti Tedeschi keeps a list of personal enemies in the Vatican – people who he had felt would stop at nothing to prevent him from reforming the Institute for Works of Religion. His friends have told the media he is shaken and scared.

Police are now considering putting the whistle-blowing banker under armed protection.
