“Conversion of Russia” Update:

Russians Selling Children by the Boatload

by Christopher A. Ferrara

The Fatima curse — Heaven’s answer to the claim that Russia was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart in 1984 — continues unabated, as Russia becomes more degenerate by the day.

According to Zenit.org (October 15, 2001) there is now “an illegal trade in children” in Russia which skirts Russian law “by having healthy youngsters declared handicapped, clearing the way for them to be sold to Westerners who pay up to $50,000 a child.” This is according to Father Oreste Benzi, founder of the John XXIII Association, who “denounced the existence of a network of illegal traffic of Russian children from their country to Europe and other destinations.”

Father Benzi toured a children’s center on a recent visit to Russia, where he met with civil and religious authorities. “They told me that there are entire Russian villages where there are no more children,” he said. “This explains why Russia, Romania and Ukraine froze international adoptions some time ago.”

While Russian law contains severe restrictions on international adoptions, the law exempts “handicapped” children in institutions. The loophole has been exploited by a growing adoption industry. The industry involves “an obliging director of an institution, a doctor who declares them handicapped, a lawyer who knows adoption practices, a trafficker of minors, a body authorized to handle adoptions, and someone who pays up to $50,000 for a European family to take a child home in two months, declared an invalid but very healthy,” said Father Benzi.

Behold Russia, some 18 years since the putative “consecration” of 1984. A nation that already aborts two out of every three of its children is now selling healthy Russian babies for $50,000 apiece. Meanwhile, other Russian children are exploited for its burgeoning child pornography industry.

Father Fox, EWTN and the other Fatima revisionist personalities and organizations are heaping to themselves a terrible judgment — by history at least, if not by God Himself. Woe to them who call evil good, and good evil, says the Bible. But calling evil good is the very essence of what the Fatima revisionists have been doing for the past 18 years.
