The 7th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions is taking place on September 14-14th in the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan,. Pope Francis will be one of the honoured guests and will be giving the closing address. Other religious leaders include the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, Ahmed Al Tayeb, as well as Rabbis, Patriarchs and representatives of Shintoism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism.
Invitees are supposed to be “the most renowned … clergy from around the world” so the Pope’s presence is a little mystifying. Bishop Schneider must be out of town next week.
Apparently Muslims are looking for to his visit because they think the Pope is “like a father” to them. That’s obviously because Muslims aren’t big on the Latin Mass.
Somehow, someone who hasn’t yet read The Dictator Pope figures that the Bergoglio is an expert in “mapping out the how and why of resolving and avoiding conflicts.” Hmmmm.
The first Congress was held in 2003, inaugurated by the then-President of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev, “in a direct response to the rise of religious tensions and extremism following the 9/11 tragic events in the United States.” It was yet another bad fruit of John Paul II’s Spirit of Assisi meeting from 2002.
The main focus of the Congress this year is “the role of religious leaders in a post-pandemic world.” One would have thought that was fairly obvious, given the huge number of deaths these leaders are responsible for. Their role is FUNERALS for all those clinical-trial victims.
The promotional material contains a few code-words that indicate this is nothing more than a meeting about the New World Religion.
“Religious fundamentalism on the rise” means “the conservative Right is pushing back against the global cabal.”
“Plotting a course for humanity’s renewal” is the spiritual component of Building Back Better.
“Global interreligious dialogue in the name of peace and stability” brings to mind heavily-armed UN “peacekeepers” detaining anyone who isn’t prepared to worship the Beast at their local Indifferentist lodge.
There is a final document to look forward to, as well. With bated breaths, we will certainly be keeping a close eye on that one – and going through the footnotes with a fine-toothed comb.
