“Conversion of Russia” Update:
Russia and China Unite Against America
by Christopher A. Ferrara
As Vladimir (the “Practicing Christian”) Putin snuffs out Russia’s free press, the “conversion of Russia” being touted by the dupes of Fatima revisionism marches on toward a full-blown Russo-Chinese super-state.
On May 28, 2003 CNSNews.com, in a story by Patrick Goodenough, reported on a joint statement by the “Practicing Christian” and Communist Chinese president Hu Jintao. The statement declares “the need to work toward the establishment of a ‘multipolar’ world” in which the Russo-Chinese super-state will counterbalance the United States. The statement further declares that “Russia and China stand for a multipolar, just and democratic world order based on the commonly recognized principles of international law.” And if you believe that, you will believe anything.
The joint statement, issued by the Kremlin-controlled Interfax news agency, called for “the peaceful settlement of disputes and a ‘central role in the modern world’ for the U.N.” In this respect, the statement coincides neatly with the current agenda of the Vatican apparatus — one of the U.N.’s biggest boosters. Do I exaggerate? Hardly. Even the middle-of-the-road Catholic World Report now acknowledges that “the Vatican continues to offer enthusiastic support for the U.N. The Holy See thus affirms with idealistic rhetoric enterprises which often work mischief.” (“The End of Gaudium et spes?”, CWR, May 2003).
In a particularly ominous development, the “Practicing Christian” and his more overtly communist Chinese counterpart have “reiterated demands for North Korea not to develop nuclear weapons, while giving a nod to Pyongyang's stated concerns, saying its security ‘must be guaranteed and favorable conditions created for its social and economic development’.” CNSNews notes that indeed “Russia and China have friendly relations with the secretive communist nation, and the U.S. has sought their help in resolving the crisis triggered by its attempts to acquire nuclear weapons.”
CNSNews further observes that “After the collapse of the Soviet Union left the U.S. as the world’s sole superpower, Russia and China drew closer after a history of suspicion, rivalry and during the 1960s, open hostility between the two communist giants. Joint declarations in 1997 and 1998 referred to the need for a new world order based on ‘multi-polarization’, a reaction to a ‘unipolar’ order dominated by U.S. ‘hegemony’. In 2001, Jiang and Putin signed a treaty of ‘good neighborliness, friendship and cooperation’ that again highlighted the importance of ‘anti-hegemonism’.”
Behold the “conversion of Russia”, more than 19 years after the supposed “consecration” of Russia in 1984. This is the state of affairs the anti-Fatima party line of the Vatican apparatus hails a “miraculous transformation” of “that poor nation”, as Sister Lucy called it many years ago. Count on Fatima.org to continue telling the truth about the sorry plight of fallen Russia, and what it means for the Church and the world.
