Analyst on Vatican court weighing fraud case

"A Vatican tribunal weighing a financial fraud case heard from an unusual witness. The voice of Pope Francis in a secret recording. The broadcast of Pope Francis own voice in the courtroom marked a new chapter in a trial that's already seen plenty of twists and turns. The conversation was within accused cardinal. Over the Holy See's payments to free a nun held hostage by militants, author and Vatican analyst Marco politi calls this trial a mess. Now we don't know whether the Pope has to come as witness. In front of the court, which would be unbelievable. He says. The power struggles within the church have become reckless. There is no more respect for the high authority of the Pope. Vatican judges are trying to determine who, if anyone is criminally responsible. For losing tens of millions of Euros in Vatican assets. I'm Jackie Quinn

"Pope Francis calls for better treatment of prisoners as he wraps up his first papal trip to Bahrain During his final event on his trip to the gulf kingdom Francis encouraged priests and nuns to keep ministering to the country's small Catholic community and especially its prisoners saying that the way in which these least ones are treated is a measure of the dignity and the hope of a society he also called for authorities to refrain from using the death penalty and to ensure basic human rights for all citizens Bahrain's government maintains its respects human rights and the freedom of speech and that its criminal justice system is compliant with international law but activists continue to criticize the country's prison conditions Human rights groups urge Francis to advocate for political prisoners too as hundreds are still detained since the 2011 Arab Spring protests I'm Naomi Shannon

There's Something Up With Liz Cheney, The Party Pooper

"Liz Cheney has become, well, let's call her a real party pooper. And what I mean by this is that she is now pooping, not just over Trump, but over the Republican Party in general. She is pooping over Carrie Lake and Republican nominees all over the country. And she doesn't seem to have a kind of enduring commitment to being a Republican at all. In fact, she said recently that quote, if he is the nominee, namely Trump, I won't be Republican. Now, let's think about why somebody would say that. Let's say that you are a Christian. And you believe that mister X would be the perfect person to be, let's say, head of the Southern Baptist convention or be even the Pope, if you're Catholic, would it make sense to say, well, if they decide to choose Francis as the Pope. I'm no longer going to be a Catholic. Well, that really shows that your Catholicism is not really rooted in a kind of fidelity to Catholic principles, Catholic tradition, Catholic history, because if it were, it you'd be like, well, it's unfortunate that we got this boat. We could certainly do better. But the church has been around for 2000 years. It's got enduring principles. My point is, the very fact that Cheney is talking like this, suggests that something is up.

"pope" Discussed on Why It Matters

"Dignity. And I thought, okay, here comes the abortion paragraph. But it wasn't. It was the capital punishment paragraph. And he never mentioned abortion. No, Pope Francis is strenuously unambiguously clearly opposed to liberalize abortion law. But that was interesting that he did that. He also said in a very complicated conversation some years ago having to do a gay priest. Well, who am I to judge? You know, many people said, you're the Pope. Isn't that what you do? Right. And he has spent a lot of time in the ensuing years trying to be clear about what he meant by that. And I think what he meant was that if you were a Catholic priest, you were celibate, you were not engaged in sexual relations, but you had same sex identity and were a celibate game in. Who am I to judge? It's not my business. But just saying publicly, who am I to judge in the context of homosexuality? Did kind of open up a little bit of space for this conversation to be a little different. But I really don't want to be seen as overstating that space. Yeah. The Pope remains strenuously opposed to same sex marriage. And of course, the church continues throughout the world and certainly in the United States to be a major spokesman against reproductive freedom. So those policies haven't changed, but I like the way you said that he changed the conversation. A little bit, and that's one of the reasons why some conservatives are so happy with. Cool. Not changing policy, but I guess changing what he thinks is worth focusing on as well. I mean, maybe even less than that. Yeah, okay. He's central emphasis is on the church being a church of the poor for the poor in order to help the marginalized. And I think it is certainly true that in that context he would like a little bit less discussion of what we Americans call culture war. Yeah. It's not that he doesn't hold those positions. He doesn't want to talk about that. I think it's fair to say. He wants to talk about refugees, climate, and poverty. And therefore, he's tried to say a little bit. Let's talk a little bit less about that and a little bit more about this. The Catholic Church tends not to change. But the Pope has enormous power to shape what it focuses on. And that's why who he is matters. Whether you are Catholic or not, the choices he makes could impact your life and the things you care about in the world. One person who could testify to this is our guest ambassador Campbell, who grew up in Northern Ireland during the troubles. A period of prolonged and deadly conflict between Protestant UK loyalists and Irish Catholics. I remembered as a 9 year old in 1979, it was the first visit of a Pope to Ireland and the Pope couldn't come to Northern Ireland. So we all had to travel across the border as close as we could get. And he went to place in drogheda, which would have been a scene of one of Cromwell's massacres. And I remember 1979, the troubles were at their height and it had come just a few weeks after very horrific events in bombings, including the murder of lord mountbatten. Very tense time. And here is this Pope who we all know had come from the experience of communism and central and Eastern Europe, but calling on the men of violence to lay down their arms. And it wasn't safe language. It was bold prophetic language. And it also understood the nature of the problem. It wasn't black and white. He also talked about the need for dignity and for the state to uphold the dignity of each human being. Irrespective of their difference. And I think for me, I never forgot that firstly here with someone that came. The true attention to this issue that wasn't afraid to challenge power, the power of the British government, to do the right thing in relation to its administration of Northern Ireland at that time when it wasn't right, it wasn't correct. But equally not to flinch from a message to people inside the Catholic community who had chosen to take up arms. And he would have seen that as his primary goal. That's who I must communicate to. And I must ask you, and I think that for me, I'm not sure that another figure could have delivered that message at that time in that way. Unless they had come out of, say, an experience like a pole living under communism. But that was a very powerful prophetic voice that I think resonated. Uncertainly sort of would have encouraged people to go down the route of peace and eventually, you know, when that kiss, the peace process, and it risks taking a position that may be criticized in the here and now, but will stun the test of time diplomatically and politically, going forward.

"pope" Discussed on Why It Matters

"Hold of that level of attention. What do you mean when you say convening power? Well, you see millions of people coming to see him. And if you look in relation to central and Eastern Europe and you look at the role of John Paul the second at that particular point in time, you are seeing someone that is holding up a higher standard and set of values, but has a non understanding of how communism is translating to the ordinary pole, and how it is imposed rather than embrace. So when you see him arriving in 1979 and you see him traveling through Poland, the communist authorities can't keep him out, but people are naturally wanting to come to listen to him and it's not through coercion or compulsion. It's a voluntary act. Whereas, at that period in time, Poland was living under the imposition of communism. It wasn't embraced so the contrast, the immediate direct contrast of the images of millions of people coming to listen to his spiritual leader, talking about the integral human development. Talking about values and the virtues that go with the human spirit, you have a natural voice that is speaking to Poland in a way that Polish communists could not speak to Poland and to the ordinary citizenry, and that immediately set up a really different and difficult dynamic for the Soviet Union and its then allies in the Warsaw Pact. So the people coming out into the streets to hear him speak, they knew that this was both Poland as a Catholic country at this point under Soviet rule. And these people know, a, this is my spiritual leader. But B, this guy has been through what I've been through. He understands my experiences. That's a potent mix. I mean, what role do people believe that he played in the subsequent end to the Cold War? As regards his role in ending the Cold War, he is certainly one of the key man figures. He would share that with Gorbachev. He would share that with Reagan. He would be one of those three or four people. And if you believe that Poland was the first domino to go. And if you believe then in the domino effect, then there is no way that one couldn't say that John Paul the second was one of the three pivotal figures in the demise of communism in Poland and indeed the demise of communism across central and Eastern Europe. Pope John Paul the second basically articulated in every way available to him that Soviet communist rule of Poland and the rest of Central Europe was illegitimate and not permanent. And of all people Mikhail Gorbachev once called Pope John Paul the second, the first citizen of global civil society. And basically what he did was he stood up in Rome and especially in his visits to Poland or so in Kraków. A wave disarms and said, we are polls, where Catholics, we are not communists in some kind of transnational Soviet way. And we need to be readmitted or rejoin a unified Europe that will allow us to live what he called an authentically Polish and Catholic life. John Paul's long tenure and his activism have ensured his place in the history books. Now, we have a new Pope. Pope Francis. Pope Francis delivered a stern warning to the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church. His message don't be Vladimir Putin's altar boy. The head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City state has said that the earth will become uninhabitable if there is no concrete action taken on climate change. The Pope came here with a profound message about the treatment of refugees. In essence, he said, recognize that humanity. Pope Francis has a very different style. I mean, heck, he tweets. And he's speaking out about a different set of challenges, like climate change, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. He also serves during a time of ongoing reckoning for the church. In which the public is sharply aware of atrocities committed by Catholic priests, such as widespread sexual abuse or crimes against indigenous children in residential schools. Pope Francis has taken new steps in acknowledging and apologizing for these crimes. Though many still say the church is not done nearly enough to repair the damage. All right, so I want to understand more about the current Pope. Can you tell us what he's prioritized so far and whether he's been successful? Whether he was successful or not remains to be seen. But I think he is certainly made an effort and it has been given an enormous amount of attention. He should have encyclical and climate change called my doubt to see. And a lot of people have talked about climate change, but almost no one has talked about in the terms he talked about it. Which was that climate change is the greatest threat to the people around the world who have plead the least role in creating it. So we in the United States and the west, industrialized countries, have created this historic calamity known as climate change. And yet the people who are going to be most immediately affected by the climate crisis dramatic weather events tsunamis, hurricanes, et cetera and in some parts of the world actually losing their farming land and maybe even losing their country. There are places in Southeast Asia, which will actually be underwater. And the Pope said in his encyclical that not only is climate change real and it challenged to the church's stewardship of God's creation, which is how he talks about it. But it's also moral issue because you and I, when we get on planes and cars and heat our houses and have air conditioning, we're actually doing damage in a kind of unethical way to the most marginalized people on earth who had no role to play in this crisis. La dato C focused Catholic attention on the climate crisis just as the Paris climate accords were being written. And some believe this changed the conversation within Catholic communities. Is there a flip side to the soft power coin? Well, it depends on one's view on issues, right? Yeah. So you see this in American Catholicism a lot. And when the Pope is saying something that a Catholic agrees with, they're like, oh, that's my Pope. Isn't that wonderful? And then the Pope says something they don't like and they should have what I should say. Right. If someone is going to go out into the public square, whether it's in the U.S., South Africa, China, wherever and say, well, the Pope, not only says that climate change is real and that we have a religious responsibility to protect the stewardship of God's creation, but we have to do it because it's a moral imperative for the poor and the marginalized. You say that, then what do you say about the Pope's argument that gender ideology is a threat to human dignity and that marriage can only be between one man and one woman or that abortion or the destruction of a fertilized egg is always wrong. You know, the Pope is not a liberal. He's the Pope. It's worth jumping in to note that these interviews were conducted before news broke of the Supreme Court draft opinion abortion. I mean, speaking of these things, from what I've heard about this Pope, it seems like he has de emphasized some of those issues. I mean, has he changed the Catholic conversation about LGBTQ issues or abortion at all? Doesn't change any policies or teachings? But he has certainly tried to change the conversation. He came to the United States some years ago, I forget the year. And he spoke before Congress, joint session of Congress, very, very rare honor given to anyone, much less. He started to talk about threats to human life.

"pope" Discussed on Why It Matters

"That story. So as I'm sure you know, the United States broke off diplomatic relations with Cuba after the Castro revolution, the United States imposed an economic embargo on Cuba for decades. And so the United States and Cuba not only didn't have diplomatic relations, they almost didn't talk to each other at all. It was like a basic fact of American Electoral College dynamics that you just couldn't even talk about relationship. Obama was interested in reaching out to Cuba. This was just something he thought would be a kind of historic step that he could take. But he knew that he couldn't do it himself. And so what he did was he contacted prominent Catholic bishops in the U.S. who remember are not only American citizens. They're also bishops of the Catholic Church who are in communion with the bishop of Rome, the Pope, and have these kind of relationships with other bishops around the world. And so Catholic bishops in the U.S. and cap the bishops in Cuba began to communicate to each other through diplomatic pouches sent from the Holy See in the Vatican to the U.S. State Department in the United States. So the Vatican or the Holy See served as a kind of a honest broker with full secrecy and discretion between the Cuban government and the United States government as mediated by Cuban bishops and America bishops. And then one day Barack Obama called the press conference and said, good afternoon. Today, the United States of America is changing its relationship with the people of Cuba. And the most significant changes in our policy and more than 50 years. We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests and instead we will begin to normalize relations between our two countries. And that was done through the church. The Vatican had contacts on both sides. In part because there were large Catholic communities on both sides. And they used that trust to open a door that had been closed for decades. Now, we should mention that the Trump administration undid this diplomatic progress with Cuba a few years later. But that's another story. The church is involved in negotiations all the time. And to understand that better, we wanted to speak to someone who has been in the room during these discussions. For that, we turn to Francis Campbell, formally a British ambassador to the Holy See. He is now the president of the university of Notre-Dame in Australia. He was interviewed by Wyatt matters producer Asher Ross, who's making his debut on the show. Hey, usher. Hey Gabby. Okay, take it away. On the international stage, we're used to the idea that countries are supposed to act in their own interests or the interests of their citizens. That's their essential goal. What is the Vatican's goal? What drives them? One of the most obvious interests it would pursue in different parts of the world is religious freedom. Very broadly, it's pursuing human rights. It pursues aspects of disarmament, global disarmament, it pursues aspects very much around the eradication of poverty, very much around a whole social justice agenda. So it's there as a not directly wanting to interfere in the internal workings of another state. It would leave that to the local Catholic Church, but it operates in unison. So at the UN level, you will find them very, very much in favor of efforts towards disarmament, efforts towards international ruprecht, a constant advocate for peace. So if one recalls the war in Iraq in 2003, hope John Paul the second was really one of the world's most vocal opponents of the war in Iraq. And that would be a pretty consistent theme you would have seen the papacy intervene at different stages of international crises, for example, Pope John the 23rd around the time of the Cuban missile crisis. So they will land the office of the papacy as a potential sort of neutral broker if that were ever required. What I'm wondering is that the church must have a separate set of goals that are theological or religious in nature. Their religious duties. And I'm wondering what intersection you see between those religious duties and goals or missions and these IR missions that you're speaking about. Well, that's where it gets to a really healthy tension for the papacy. And there's a real tension between what I would describe the diplomat and the prophetic voice. For example, when the Vatican was dealing in the Cold War with the countries of central and Eastern Europe, you had a real debate between the prophetic voice of the Vatican that wanted to call this out what was happening with regards to human rights and religious freedom and the totalitarian nature of the state. And then the more sort of diplomatic pragmatists that were saying, we need some sort of pragmatic tale in order to allow the church to function in these countries. By the way, a lot of popes are mentioned in this episode, and it's understandable if you start to get their names mixed up. But there are two you'll really want to listen for. The first is the current one. Pope Francis, who was elected in 2013. So far, he's best known for advocating for refugees and climate action. The other Pope to keep in mind is John Paul the second. He led the church from 1978 until his death in 2005. He served for a very long time, and enjoyed a lot of popularity. Among other things, he was Pope during the end of the Cold War and the fall of the USSR. Throughout our research on this show, I keep hearing about John Paul the second's the Pope's role in Poland during the Cold War and the solidarity movement, and I was hoping that you could relieve that story to us and kind of maybe give us your thoughts about what that says about the Pope's influence in global affairs. You know, this was the first time that a Pope was elected from central and Eastern Europe. The first time in four and a half centuries where there was a non Italian elected and all of a sudden in 1978, you have the archbishop of Kraków elected Pope at the age of 58. So he's young and he's coming from the church behind the iron carton. So this is someone that immediately in the western world is able to give a different critique of communism. They're able to give a lived critique of communism than with the rise of solidarity, out of Gdańsk. You see during John Paul's visits to Poland and the first visit in 1979 and his speech in victory square and Warsaw. You see the full convening power of the papacy and the full voice speaking to the people in a way that communism could never get.

"pope" Discussed on Why It Matters

"What sort of dive right into it. When you look at lists of the most powerful people in the world that come out every year, you often find the Pope in top ten and he's next to people like Joe Biden or Vladimir Putin or probably a Kardashian. And it occurs to me that I don't really understand why the Pope is powerful. So is the Pope powerful and what kind of power does he wield? The question of whether he's powerful is a difficult question. I think he is, I think there are three reasons. First is, as we know, he leads this huge global institution of the Catholic Church. With over a billion Catholics, he has ready access to them through encyclicals through sermons that priests and bishops give. So because of that and because I think he sort of prominently dressed and presented as a religious figure in a world that takes that seriously. He's surrounded by a media circus of incredible intensity and attention. This is Timothy burns he's a Professor of political science at Colgate university. He's also the author of four books about the Catholic Church's role in politics and global affairs. And since the middle of the 20th century, popes have used modern forms of communication and travel to take advantage of this. So he's on Twitter, for example, pontifex, millions of followers. He travels all over the world. So he's this major sort of religious figure leading the largest single religious institution in the world. That's one reason. But he's also the leader of the Catholic hierarchy throughout the world. And by that, I mean, every bishop in the world is appointed by the Pope, personally, and he is the leader of each national hierarchy of so when you think about world politics or international relations, whatever country is interacting with another country, there are Catholics in those countries, and they are led by bishops who are appointed by and led by the Pope. He's involved with all of these national hierarchies all over the world. And then finally, and really kind of oddly, to be honest with you, he's a formal participant in diplomatic relations. The Pope, the Holy See at the moment, has diplomatic relations with a 183 countries, including the United States, for example. So he has access to international relations in a way that no other religious leader could even imagine having. Right. He's a permanent observer at the United Nations. He's invited as a formal participant in UN conferences and conventions. Did you get that? Relations with 183 countries. For perspective, that's more than the U.S., and the U.S. does a lot of diplomacy. And this gets at the crux of it. The Pope's role on the world stage is not just symbolic or religious. He's involved in negotiations and diplomacy on a daily basis. Can you tell me a little bit about the structure of the Vatican's foreign policy arm? They have a State Department. They do. It was a person who was called a Vatican Secretary of State interestingly enough. There's two people below him. One runs the kind of internal church matters. And the other will the undersecretary for relations with states. He runs, they're all he, of course, runs relations with states. So yes, it's a kind of a State Department. And they have country desks. They have regional leaders, just like any State Department would in a country. And then they have these ambassadors. They're called nuncios or apostolic delegates. But mostly nuncios. And those are sent to these countries with which the Vatican has diplomatic relations. And then interestingly enough, the countries with whom the Holy See has diplomatic relations, there are ambassadors from those countries in Rome. So like the United States has an ambassador who lives in Rome and who interacts with the Holy See and the Pope pretty much as any other man would. So he has this really unique place in the world. He leads this huge religious institution which brings with it enormous amount of interest you mentioned Kardashians and sort of celebrity focus of this global religious figure. He heads the hierarchies and all countries around the world that they interact with politics and international relations. And then he's a diplomatic legal player in international relations and UN processes. It's the Pope the only religious leader. Welcomed into these discussions. Formally, yes, I mean, you don't have diplomatic relations with Islam or orthodoxy or Judaism or any other religion. So in football terms, for sure, he is. But there are other religious leaders. We can think about Islamic leaders in Iran, for example, who are certainly players and international relations. Largely through their leadership of individual state. And so those religious leaders do have a certain political role to play. But in terms of transnational global religious leaders, no, I'm waiting for someone to come along who can mention anyone who's even in the same category. Before we go any further, there are three phrases we're using in this episode. The Pope, the Holy See, and the Vatican. They refer to different things, but they often get used interchangeably. You can think about it sort of like the president, the executive branch, and The White House. One is a person, one is an organization, and one is a place. The Pope is the person in charge. The Holy See is the organization he's in charge of, and the Vatican, or Vatican City, is the place where that organization is located. The Vatican is the headquarters of the international Catholic Church in Rome. So it comprises Saint Peter's. It comprises a bunch of other buildings that are used administratively residentially. Vatican City is about a hundred acre microstate, which was seated to the church and the Holy See in the 1920s as part of the latter and accord. So Vatican City, if anyone's ever been there as a tourist, that's when you walk into Saint Peter's square and you're no longer in Italy. The Vatican, all those buildings that house the international headquarters at the Catholic Church. So it's its own country to itself. It is. 'cause I went as a kid, I don't remember doing a passport thing. No, there are no passports, but I'm surprised you didn't do it. My kids did, which is they put one foot in Italy and one foot in there. I mean, that's pretty cool. And the Pope lives there? Yeah. The Pope is the bishop of Rome, actually. He's elected by the college of cardinals to serve as the bishop of Rome, and as bishop of Rome, he also serves as what's called the supreme pontiff of the Catholic Church. So he is, in a sense, the head bishop of all Catholics throughout the world. And the president or king of the Vatican in that sense then? Well, again, I would say Vatican City, he is the absolute ruler. They don't use the word king or certainly not president, but he is, in fact, legally the absolute ruler of the microstate of Atticus. So the Pope has a unique combination of institutional diplomatic and soft power. But what does this look like in reality? Well, a lot of it is happening every day behind the scenes. But every once in a while, these interactions make history. When Julian Assange released WikiLeaks. Yeah. One of the things that was released that drew my attention, but maybe not yours. Was that there were a huge number of documents within the United States State Department, which reflected the communications between the U.S. State Department and the holy city. And they were fascinating. You know, this was under president George W. Bush and Obama mostly. The U.S. diplomatic leaders acknowledged and recognized that the Holy See was a unique actor in international relations. Because it wasn't just the state. And so you read cables and documents from State Department leaders in the Obama administration, for example, saying, like I would, you know, there's nobody else like this. Yeah. These people are kind of diplomatic representatives of a global institution. And we can work with them on all kinds of issues. Having to do with Middle Eastern politics, having to do with climate change, having to do with diplomatic relations with Cuba. Which is a fascinating story. I'd like to tell..

Dot com and click on the support tab. Yeah, there's options. So many options. And as always, Dan, we have our top donor to thank our lord and savior. Demoney. Thanks everyone. There's more show coming up. Well, Frank, Dan, there is a problem out there. Oh, there's so many problems, Dan. You each one of you talking about. You have engaged in this problem just this week. Oh. Because as our patrons, no, because they listen to they get the secret feed, the Franken dandy diaries. Yeah. You, sir, adopted a dog. I did. I got a new little puppy. How dare you? Well, year old, you're old dog. He's selfish. Jerks. Apparently that's not okay, and we know this. How is that not okay? Because I'm giving a precious little critter a home. Well, it's a beautiful thing. Pope Francis says you're selfish. Okay, herb soul selfish. Here's the thing. You and I were talking earlier when we were discussing this story. About the fact that the Catholic Church has for a long time now kind of replenished its numbers by forcing its members to have lots of kids. Yeah, you can't abort them. You can't you can't even have can't use any sort of contraception. No contraception nope. Family troll. None of that stuff. The rhythm method? Is that what they called it? Back in the day. Yeah. You probably can't even do that. Anyway, the point is, have all the kids in the world. And I am now deeply suspicious of their anti contraception stamps. Because we know the Bible, they didn't have the pill. Right. In biblical times, they didn't really have decent contraception back in the day. I mean, we know that onan got in trouble for not impregnating his brother's wife, fair enough. And that's about all they've got. They've got onanism being, you know, spilling one seed upon the ground. Please don't. Being for Bowen or being bad, at least in that case, but that's about it in terms of justification. And now here's the thing. Pope Francis came out with a thing where he basically said that everybody should, if you can't have your own kids, you should be adopting children and he excoriated the young people who these days aren't adopting children, but are instead you know, sometimes they'll adopt dogs for babies. Yeah. The truth is, he just, like, and he said, not having children, not having your own kids, not raising human people. Is selfish. Well, all I want to do is hold a mirror up to him. What are you doing, sir? Your reproductive ability. Right? I don't know how willing I am to take marital advice from a virgin and address. I think that maybe maybe that's not the right person for me to just for me to take advice on whether or not I should have kids. I mean, they could open up a lot of breeding possibilities by just letting the priests get together with. Yeah, but who's gonna raise them? But nones. Well, I mean, they're notoriously good. Oh yeah, at raising. Rearing kids. Yeah. They don't end up in that grave. Mass unmarked graves in Ireland or whatever. People who want a lot more kids in the world. They were really nasty. They had their so horrible to kids. Why would anybody want to bring a child into the Catholic Church? Right. Ask any indigenous person who was placed in a Catholic school, how great the Catholics are with kids. Here's the thing. He is not the only person from whom I have heard this idea that not having kids is selfish, because Andrea and I chose not to have kids and the Mormons around us. They definitely were on that on that front. You are supposed to have children. That is, I mean, it's kind of at least in the U.S. it's kind of the ethos. It's kind of the going philosophy that you are supposed to have kids that that's the default. Well, I mean, your parents want you to have kids because if you don't, they don't get grand babies. That is obviously a huge deal. I don't understand it. I'll never be able to wrap my head around it, not having kids, and never gonna have grandkids, but people want, like, if you like babies, you'll want babies. And you want more of them. Right. Well, I understand the grandkids thing because you don't have to raise those people. You just get all of the benefit and none of the none of the but there is this idea that you're not a fully realized or actuated adult or human being, really, until you have a kid. Yeah, it's sick. It is kind of sick. The truth of the matter is, and look, there's nothing wrong with wanting to be a parent. Oh no. And you want to have a kid go raise kids? That's a wonderful thing. That's not what we're talking about, but it shouldn't be the societal default that everyone should have kids. Yeah, no. Let me tell you something. Lots of people who don't want to have kids and know in their hearts that they are not cut out to be a good parent. Have kids. Yeah. Because they feel that pressure. We should not be pressuring someone who doesn't think they'll be a good parent. Into parenthood. Yeah, there's nothing magical is gonna happen..

"The email, the subject line was genocide, so oh GE starting well. We're off to a great start there. Is he alerted? He's alerting us to a genesis. Yes, indeed. Okay. I write this email, he wrote, knowing that many of you will think I'm crazy after reading it. I don't know. He's right about that. I believe there is a sadistic effort underway to euthanize the American people. It's obvious now. It's undeniable. Yet no one is doing anything. Everyone is discounting their own judgment and dismissing their intuition. Now, I don't know. I feel far so crazy. So far so cute. It's a very QAnon sort of feel to it. Yeah, okay. And I will not dispel that feeling for you as I go on with what he wrote. I believe that Jews are behind this. For 300 years, the Jews have been trying to infiltrate the Catholic Church and place a Jew covertly at the top. Oh my God. It happened in 2013 with Pope Francis. Oh my God. I believe, man, the jumps this guy takes. I believe the pandemic and systemic extermination of billions of people will lead to an effort to consolidate all the countries in the world under a single flag with totalitarian rule. Oh my God. I love this next sentence. I know it sounds bonkers. Yeah, Dave. It kinda does Dave. Maybe you should let that sink in for me. Maybe look in the mirror and read it back to yourself a few times. It sounds bonkers. If you think it sounds, he says I know it sounds bonkers. No one is reporting on it, but the hasidic Jews in the U.S. instituted a law for their people that they are not to be vaccinated for any reason. He wrote. Oh God. I pray that I'm wrong about this. Utah has got to stop the vaccination drive. Warn your employees, warn your Friends, prepare, stay safe. Oh God. So this went out to all the silicon slopes, people. Just a bunch of business leaders. Oh God. Jesus. So of course. When the word got out, that he had sent this thing. His company had to distance themselves. I'm shocked that they didn't do more. They forced him to retire from the board and everything. But they should be suing him for damaging the company's reputation. Yeah, my God. I'm a little speechless. I just, I still marvel at the conspiracies about the Jews. It really, I don't, it's shocking. How is this a thing? How is it so in these modern times? Yeah. Right. How could this possibly? But it'll be shake these things. It's so weird. Like, oh, you know, you talk about Henry Ford, who bought a newspaper just so he could print the protocols of the elders of Zion, which by the way, everybody. That's a fake thing. If you ever read the protocols of the elders of xai, Zion as the rest of the world says it or Zion as we utahn say it. You'll know it's just a made up bullshit story that's purported to be like it's literally so outrageously stupid like it's the purported minutes of a meeting between that happens once every hundred years where the Jews get together and talk about how are we doing on our plot to take over the world? Oh, we haven't done it yet. Okay, well, let's get some. Let's get some better plans in place. Let's give it another hundred years. Well, do it one of these times, and apparently that part of the deal was to get a Jewish Pope, which of all the people to choose. As the Jewish plant for the papacy, like a guy, an Argentine guy of Italian descent, wrong choice, man. Could have gone with the German, you know, but that was before him, but like, you can't get Catholic or yeah, then Pope Francis, who would have had to, like, he started in like, he went into the priesthood in the 50s. That's a long con man. They've been planning it for a hundred years. That's how it works, Dan. If you're gonna pull something like this off, you gotta start early. You get a plan. You gotta get them in young. You gotta get all the pieces in place, a good 70 years. Jesus Christ. Before things are actually supposed to happen. Because you know, first of all, conspiracies and like actual conspiracies to commit anything. Yeah. Are just like, it's such a bad idea to enter into a conspiracy. Because somebody always leaks it. Somebody like somebody always spills the bean. If it is a conspiracy of more than three people yeah, you're fucked. Right. Your conspiracy will fail. And this is. This would have to involve so many people. That hundreds of thousands of people over yeah. If it hasn't worked by now, yeah. I got news for you. It's not real. People conspiracies literally. If you're a conspiracy, if you think that a conspiracy is happening, I didn't involve more than 30 people. You're wrong. I would say more than 5. You're just wrong. There have been certainly conspiracies, you know, Watergate happened. Absolutely. There's a reason why the concept exists. Yeah. If you conspire with somebody to commit a crime, that is a conspiracy. There are real conspiracies out there, but like, holy shit, these conspiracy fantasies, which I heard it called recently. Like I said, conspiracy theory. Yeah, they're calling them conspiracy fantasies. Yeah. That makes a lot more sense, actually. That is the correct terminology. Exactly. So apparently, even, boy, I'll tell you what.

"Vested taper said like he can die. I paid off. He said i could fucking do like three hundred people so crazy. That's all gone. Pope urban there he could dive can probably do a whole fucking episode him. But he's he just like he brought everyone to war and he said if you join my army i'm going to. I'm going to reverse your sins you can. You can go me. Jesus and cock and the afterlife. It sounds fun. Okay you want to do that. And so pope. John was as evil as he is. Incompetent he came up with multiple malevolent schemes to gain power many of which ended in failure leading to his ultimate demise. Our the pope. Yeah i know so he could to get higher in power. I assume and to get to that. Goddamn pope status aware now bloomingdale sharing clearly one because you just call them pope john. Yeah it's true So john was rome spiritual leader and appointed auto the first emperor of germany in hopes that he would support him in the war against the burgh. Area i'm not going to pronounce. I write the second of italy for some reason. He betrayed auto and began talking with the audio was furious to hear about his betrayal and he actually defeated these homeboys. The other people at the pope. The burn burn gear and john had managed to escape by this point and so auto elected a new pope because they're all cahoots and everyone was share power. But like it's all it's clear there wasn't after the putty wrote the rule that he's greater talking. It's it's all of this is his retinas. It's like well. He says this and i say that. Now you like it's just like it's all this amalgamation of bullshit where people argue power sake and and then everyone's poor like just needs fucking bread band. I'm eating a rat every day and there's a guy beside him just deck to the nine. Yeah so i'm saying explicitly like having a president that has covered in gold. He's got gold rings got dope gold chain and everyone is poor outside of where he lives and his little fucking mansion. It's the same shit so odd. Oh and the new pope support each other in. Rome jotted sapped. I don't know why so. Many popes return to rome and he wanted to dispose of the new pope is that i was pope and now i want to be pope again. I want i want it. And so before. He could manage it. He was killed by someone believed to be the husband of one of his mistresses. These popes have a lot of mistresses. Or you're in power men number mica celebrity. Fuck fuck it wrong. I don't want to look it up right now but l. The hosts heads out there. Can you fuck it. Art are pope's allowed to have sex. Because i'm pretty sure they're not. There's someone on the cloth not supposed to do that. I'll figure it out later. It's fucking weird though. So i don't think they really care this point with all the taken. What their job is to seriously. Is this guy with my favorite pope. Name them all pope. Stephen it's probably stuff on. I'm imagining because i can tell you could be stephen. What his name is steven. It's probably stefan. But i'm gonna come pope stephen. The six wasn't only an evil pope. Probably one of the most craziest pope's on your crazy pope when yards all you're so crazy. Dementia mensur weyerhaeuser. When he became pope he actually had the previously. This is fucked okay. So when he became pope he added. The previous. Popes body exhumed so that that pope could stand trial oh. He accused a pope of several crimes and wanted him to answer for them. Sounds like schizophrenia. I guess and he's like fucked us like you're trying to cover up something you did. Maybe he did that shit. And he's like aside he'd like to get the heat off my back right now. A could because he said the crimes the accused him of. We're mainly just the actions he took while he was pope. He has he did. He is dead but you know you need if someone for the public isn't really care about him. He just needs a face for the public. Look at least. I have the power and i can resurrect this motherfucker. Jesus here let me let me dig up this old fuck and know what they did guy they places body on a throne and they found him guilty on. Somebody's dead body. I don't think much of a defense. But sure st continues to point fingers at this dead body. But you can't really stick up for yourself. And according to their logic right if he was pope technically and use of a man of god he would have reached heaven. so he's there like drinking is fucking jesus in the astle and then he's looking down and be like why the fuck are they. What are you what the fuck dug up which is weird. So when he was found guilty the body was thrown into the river timber. It's not fucked like h. Is the crazy shit in the world to dig up somebody and make them stand trial. Or it's gotta you know. Like i said it's just it's not for him i don't think he's actually like in his own head going. I yes this guy will get this etiquettes like. Oh fuck i fucked. Let's let's just convince everybody else can do this. Heat off a yeah. It's just like this is like he's like maybe i'll do some. That's so crazy that everyone will think. I'm the good guy i'm cool. I'm the cool guy but not long after the strange trial. Fucking pope goddamn stephen was assassinated. Maybe really could do that. And that motherfucker came back will kill you. So stephen was clearly completely insane and he will always be remembered as such which is the biggest defining moment of his reign is that he fucking dug up the pope before him put him on trial. And then that's pretty vetted as somebody say. I don't like this but you would have the people on the pope. That ernie died that we liked him. We liked him. Well don't be digging him up. Why are you doing that. Got some out there screaming at him. And that's how i got massacred. Yep oh so was the first one to touch. Yeah i liked it so innocent. The thirteenth brought the pet both rome he was brought to the palpable pal. Palpable paople thrown by a puppet master a cardinal who took a strong anti magic stance in the vatican and proves and persecuted. Suppose witches in intellectuals across europe did you this question. God and what god is so he's murdering witches and people that are intellectuals of people are questioning the churches. He's scared scared. So these guys are going to get too many if you just gotta start knocking them off one by one. Those stay week. Innocent was also known for pretty much bankrupting the palpable treasury by interfering in italian politics and pinning one province one provincial monarch against another so he was like he plotted like well. I'm going to get this guy mad and he's gonna get mad at that guy and then it's all my favor it's fucking weird like a lot of this is just like damn i'm powerful and i'm gonna pin you against you and it's always been.
