The current crop over in "Peace and Justice" just took a dose of swatting.
In the hot seat was the document on the global financial crisis released ten days earlier by the pontifical council for justice and peace. A document that had disturbed many, inside and outside of the Vatican.
The secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, complained that he had not known about it until the last moment. And precisely for this reason he had called that meeting in the secretariat of state.
The conclusion of the summit was that this binding order would be transmitted to all of the offices of the curia: from that point on, nothing in writing would be released unless it had been inspected and authorized by the secretariat of state.
Well, it was just a silly pipe-dream statement, right?
The Statist "Ruling Class" bunch is everywhere, sometimes wearing Roman collars (and nun's habits.) Doesn't make their idiocy any more acceptable.
