Will the next pope be a NWO socialist?Submitted by McClarinJ on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 19:00
The next Catholic pope will be the final pope according to the centuries-old prophecy of St. Malachy, and he will be known as Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman). Consequently, those disposed to credit the prophecy have taken a look at Catholic cardinals named Peter.
One such is Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, considered to be "papable" by church authorities. He studied and held positions in the US before returning to Ghana where he was made bishop, then cardinal. Along the way he seems to have been infected with socialism. From Wikipedia:
In October 2011 Cardinal Turkson called 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of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document, Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority was very specific, calling for taxation measures on financial transactions. It notes that “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,” it said. The document condemned what it called “the idolatry of the market” as well as a “neo-liberal thinking” that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems. “In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviours like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale,” it said, adding that world economics needed an “ethic of solidarity” among rich and poor nations.
It certainly sounds like Turkson would gladly help usher in the New World Order. Whether he is known to anyone as "Peter the Roman" I haven't been able to find out.
Another possibility that would more closely fit Malachy's prophecy is Cardinal Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertone, born in Romano Canavese, Italy. He is said to be politically powerful and has conducted most of the affairs of the Vatican in recent years, however he is not regarded by many as papable since he speaks neither English nor French and he has made too many enemies.
