VATICAN CITY The United Nations is not "the devil," so a papal think tank is free to collaborate with the international body as well as people of any political persuasion, said Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences

The church will continue to collaborate with the United Nations on any joint project that "does not go against the doctrine of the church," he said at a news conference July 15.

The Vatican academy is sponsoring a one-day symposium July 22 with the United Nations' global initiative, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, headed by U.S. economist Jeffrey Sachs.

The academy is also sponsoring a related day-long workshop July 21, bringing together 60 mayors and top-level representatives of major cities around the world to take concrete steps against modern-day forms of slavery in their communities. 

While some have objected to the Vatican cooperating with organizations and individuals who promote population control in ways that clearly violate church teaching, Sanchez said the church works with everyone in order to join forces on common concerns.

In response to a question about whether the Vatican was letting itself become a platform for the United Nations to promote its own agenda, Sanchez said the idea for and organization of the meeting came from the pontifical academy with added input from the U.N. development network.

"The United Nations is not the devil. Rather, quite the opposite," he said.

Pope Paul VI, who was the first pope to visit the United Nations, told the general assembly in 1965 that the world organization represented the mandatory path of modern civilization and world peace, Sanchez said. Successive popes showed the same kind of support with their own visits to the U.N., too, he said.

"Therefore, I don't see how there can be any problem" with collaborating with the United Nations, especially as the academy has worked with many other world organizations and leaders, he said.

"To see the devil in the United Nations, which some on the right tend to do, is not the position of the Holy See," he said.

I think the Vatican knows their time is short and they are kissing up to the UN. Pretty soon the UN will get teeth and will have enough of the harlot. 

 

The United Nations and Vatican sitting in a tree,

K..I..S..S..I..N..G..

 

First comes love,

Then they say.

 

Oh No!

It's Jehovah's DAY!
