"vatican" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History
"Advocates this day january tenth nineteen eighty four the united states and the vatican established full diplomatic relations for the first time in one hundred seventeen years. We'll get into some of the details but the us and the vatican ties from george washington the beginning of the country up until eighteen sixty seven and then congress passed a law banning funding for any formal diplomatic relations with the holy see and then from eighteen. Sixty seven all the way to nineteen eighty-four. There were some informal meetings and personal on voice but it wasn't until this day in nineteen eighty-four under president reagan that a formal ambassador was appointed to the vatican then headed up by pope. John paul the second so here to talk about that moment and our relations formal and informal with the vatican is always nicole hammer of columbia. Hello nicki hello jody. I am your local catholic correspondent. Okay great so we have this moment in one thousand nine hundred four but let's actually go back to eighteen sixty seven because That is the last time there were formal ties. What happens in eighteen. Sixty seven that the united states says. We don't want to form a relationship with the vatican anymore you know. There's not like a distinct thing that happens. It's just that there's this rising anti-catholic sentiment and this is one of the places that it expresses itself And so a lot of this is tied to the influx of immigrants from europe a lot of italian and german immigrants who are bringing catholicism with them and a real bigotry in the united states about and fear of catholicism. Something that is fundamentally anti-democratic and un-american yeah And is that centered in the northeast. A lot of New immigrants were coming or is there also a sort of i mean you think eighteen sixty seventy certainly think reconstruction is there a post civil war context to this as well. I mean it certainly happening all across the country because you know yes in the northeast where they're immigrants but also in the south which is heavily protestant area In the mid west where a lot of new immigrants are settling so this is not necessarily a localized phenomenon. it becomes pretty quickly Of an across the country phenomenon right. And certainly if you read about things like the rise of the ku klux klan and so forth as a deep anti catholic sentiment in there so you yes you were saying it's just sort of throughout the country. There's this real suspicion and theories and all these kind of insidious stories about catholicism as this as this threat. Yeah i mean. There's this real fear that catholics are fundamentally loyal to the pope over any political leader. And so they're taking orders from the pope that um with it comes to choosing between the united states in rome. They'll choose rome that they're trying to get funding for catholic schools they. Catholics are both trying to take over the united states but also fundamentally disloyal to the united states and that's the the rhetoric that you hear pretty much anywhere in the country in the late nineteenth century. I'm it becomes a slogan. An opposition to roman roman ism as anti-catholicism was not the time That's part of an anti-immigrant push but also part of a defense of the united states is a fundamentally protestant country and you know it's a reminder that think for certainly in the last generation or maybe two when you think of religious divides in this country you often think of christianity and other religions and you know obviously islam is a big part of sort of our political conversation around religion now this is a reminder that for so long it was protestants and catholics. Was the real big leaving within this country within christianity. Yeah absolutely i mean. Anti-semitism becomes pretty big in the united states particularly in the early twentieth century as they're more immigrants from places like eastern europe But certainly for the nineteenth century and you know well into the twentieth century the anti-catholicism of the us a defining feature of american politics. And you know when you think about what you were saying. These these rumors about catholics be more loyal to the pope. I mean certainly in modern political time at the j. f. k. election that seems to be the big flash point for that. I mean that. That was the big story around. Jeff cake rising political power right right so we should say. Catholics made their political home in the democratic party and so they began in the twentieth century to exercise. Power there in nineteen twenty eight. You get your first catholic candidate. Al smith who actually loses pretty badly So when john kennedy comes along there is the sense that like will. Protestants actually vote for a catholic. It's particularly clear. And so he goes out of his way to make clear the lake. I don't have a loyalty to the catholic church. I'm not going to. He actually says that he's not going to extend diplomatic relations to the catholic church because he doesn't want to bear the taint of catholicism He is running for president right and then when he becomes president. I mean you just you would think that we have decades and decades at this point almost a century of having diplomatic ties with the vatican. You'd think we finally have our first catholic president. He would be the one to take that step. But as you were saying i think he was so cowed by this charge and an over correcting to not feed this rumor that he was kind of almost the worst candidate to take that step and he was also informed by something that had happened just a few years earlier in nineteen fifty one harry. Truman had floated the idea of reestablishing these diplomatic relations. And what happens his baptist. Pastor denounces him publicly And there's this huge pushback from protestants in the country so even just a few years earlier the sentiment against embracing anything that seemed catholic was still suspicious in the united states and came at a political cost So before we get to what happens in the nineteen eighties in his changes. We've been talking mostly about the domestic considerations often political considerations or at least political refracted through religion There is an element of what's happening in italy and the vatican's role as both a diplomatic state and a religious state. Which i will say is often something that has kind of like been curious to me that it's able to or tries to walk these two sides But you know it does seem like that played a pretty key part in the. Us never taking that step at least for one hundred and fifty years or so of establishing formal ties. Yeah i mean. I think it's important to remember that. The late eighteen sixties where huge moment in italian history. Eighteen seventy one. The reunification process begins but part of that process is the papal states which were actually a pretty significant part of what would become. Italy are disbanded and the catholic church instead of controlling this large territory that could have diplomatic relationships with another country. For a lot of reasons. I'm gets shrunk down this tiny little city state And so when it comes to reestablishing diplomatic relations with the vatican. It's a very different prospect because it's no longer a political state. It's just a religious state in a lot of ways it's just this tiny little spot on the map and it's not the same kind of motivation to develop diplomatic relationships with which with what is fundamentally a religious state which would have been the only religion that the us had formal diplomatic ties to right right so if it had remained part of larger italy almost under the guise of relations with italy have a sort of deep relationship with the us government and catholicism. But because it gets narrowed down to just the state it becomes a little trickier politically. Because the papal state had ports and controlled land in net exports whereas again madigan city is just this tiny little place. Yeah for sure so. We get now to the early eighties. There's a larger geopolitical context but it also really does seem to have a lot to do with two people president. Reagan and pope. John paul the second and of relationship between.

The Political Legacy of Diego Maradona
"So today. Let's discuss. What may diego. Maradona an idol of the working class throughout the world. And so today on the show. We have the pleasure. And the honour of having dave's 'iran who's the sports editor for the nation magazine host of the edge of sports podcast and the co host of w w collision with eaton thomas which you can hear under ups w thursday's or anytime on wpro w fm dot org. He joins us today over. The phone is a pleasure and honor tabby on the shell dave zairean. It's great to be here. Thanks for having me is good to have you with us today and it's been a whirlwind of emotions both for me personally requested passing donor. Because i don't know what to began its Figures that for me personally. I thought we would continue to live on in a way. He'll continue to do so. But you know we started this program by quoting water galeano and you wrote not one but two articles in the nation magazine on the donor and the first one did you did. Last week. Actually called it galliano as well. So let's begin their liberate on what you call it from galeano last week because you know for no other reason that it's a shame that gagliano is not alive. Today to perhaps best crystallize the importance of madonna nominee in the world and he probably best crystallize this. This passing perhaps a better than the both of us combined. Yeah i mean. I guess i would start just by reading the words of galliano about diego. Maradona eduardo gagliano is just the absolute master of words. Somebody who can make poetry and prose intertwined with one another and produce something perfect but this is what had wow diano wrote about diego maradonna that i quoted. He's written a great deal about maradonna. But this is what i quoted. No one can predict the devilish tricks. This inventor of surprises will dream up for the simple joy of throwing the computers off track. Trixie never repeats. He's not quick more like a short legged bull but he carries the ball so into this foot and he's got is all over. His body is acrobatics. Light up the field in the frigid soccer of the end of the century which detest defeat and forbids all fund. That man was one of the few prove that fantasy can be efficient and inside that praise of maradonna. somebody who's as the ball sewn to his split because gagliano put so expertly. Of course you know in that statement is a critique of what soccer had become by the end of the twentieth century which in galliano's mine had been very flattened in very become boring faithfully As more and more countries left reflected an indigenous style of play and more countries started to play like one another and teams played like one another in a way. That was very very risk averse until maradona. Who was you know in both his life on the field and off the field was anything. But risk-averse He maradonna saw kindred. Spirit Somebody who could play with the efficiency that's needed the modern game but also had the ability to make you dream about what the possibilities of a human being could do and be On the soccer field and so in addition we encourage everyone to check out the writings of eduardo. Galeano as it pertains football because it's not just the xs and os. It goes way beyond that. Now even in regards to to madonna but the game itself as well. I'll just say on us. Wrote wrote a whole thin book about soccer called soccer in sun and shadow Of course if available in spanish and english and it's the most beautiful faca writing that you can imagine. I would recommend that this month for anyone looking for a good book to read during the holiday season. What can you tell us about the poverty. Madonna grew up in that perhaps shaped his political views later. Because you know we we just mentioned the the professionalization of football as as a global sport in how it's become sort of predictable and cold as you mentioned there's galeano mentioned but he grew up at a time where it's still not as polished as we see it today and this is very important and understanding you know his views later in life correct. Oh absolutely at Giggle maradona like to say that. He was born in the mud and never forgot where he came from and when he said he was born in the mud literally it was mud he grew up in the badio ueno status and he was the fifth of eight children and he grew up without running water or electricity and that always feel as if he was a kindred spirit with everybody on earth who lived in poverty in this globe. That's built on savage inequalities. Madonna saw himself as a tribune for those even when he was at his most his most wealthy even when he was at his most Flamboyant he never forgot where he came from he always stood particularly with the poor of the global south And that's not just in latin america that that's all over the world and My favorite Diego maradona story is diego. Maradona was also a very devout roman catholic and he was able to meet the pope Pope john paul the second and he said this is what he said after leaving his meeting with the pope he said i was in the vatican and i saw all these golden ceilings and afterwards i heard the pope's say that the church was worried about the welfare of the poor

"vatican" Discussed on Extraterrestrial
"Fatima was drenched in heavy rains in the hours leading leading up to the miracle of the Sun. All of the witnesses agreed that until roughly two o'clock in the afternoon the sky was cloudy and overcast meaning the conditions were ripe for the moist air to refracted sunlight and create the effect Auguste Mason of the Catholic University of Lou von had a different but still scientifically based explanation. The son didn't appear in the sky at all but physically inside the eyes of every witness Dennis as a reminder right up until the moment the miracle of the sun occurred the skies over. Fatma were overcast with heavy rainclouds at two o'clock. PM when the clouds parted Lucia shouted look at the sun staring directly at the sun can cause damage image including retinal after images in which the figure of the star is temporarily seared on the is receptors this means the viewer will see the the Sun at the center of their vision even when they look in another direction in this case the witnesses could have seen the sun following the path of their gazes assist seemingly bouncing through the sky retinal damage could also account for the other strange visions witnesses saw that day the changing colors in the air and the skies shift from bright to dim mason also considered the witnesses outside of Fatma and suggested did their sightings discredited any UFO theory any spaceship large enough to be viewed from miles away would have been noticed by one of the region's agents observatories as we noted in last week's episode observatories detailed no unexpected phenomena on October thirteenth nineteen seventeen nineteen. What's interesting about Mason's theory is that he spoke as a representative of a Catholic University and yet he rejected the divinity the of the miracle of the Sun but he also emphasized that the event was definitely not extraterrestrial in nature his surprising statement meant was consistent with a century of evidence suggesting that the Catholic church isn't just resistant to the idea of intelligent alien life. They're actively covering it up up next. We'll explore more alternative explanations and way how all credible we find this story now back to the story on October thirteenth nineteen seventeen a crowd of tens of thousands the witness the sun's strange dance and plummet from the sky in the century since Catholics and sceptics alike have struggled to explain the phenomenon to the top competing theories are that the event was a real miracle or that. It was an alien spaceship citing adding adding fuel to the conspiracy theories. The Church has spent a century controlling the narrative of the miracle of the Sun and Erasing all the evidence that it feels alien in nature. Does that suggest that the Vatican is part of a larger alien conspiracy the Catholic Church would say no since October nineteen thirty bear official stance has been that Lucia and the other witnesses received a genuinely divine visitation from the Virgin Mary Mary Joseph and the baby Jesus in the century since the miracle of the Sun Fatma Tema has become a major destination for pilgrims from around the world. A shrine to the Lady of Fatima was constructed in Nineteen nineteen seen near the same spot that Lucia reported. The little lady appeared half a dozen times. This shrine has proved a boon to the local economy and of course the ongoing services and signs of devotion ensured at the Catholic Church could maintain its power and influence in the region today day more than eighty percent of Portugal's population identifies as Catholic in other words. The church isn't exactly unbiased in their stance in fact according to this theory the church lied to the people of Fatima and spent the next century ensuring that no one ever realized the truth that brings us to the question of why if the Vatican had concrete proof of the existence of aliens. Why would they go to such lengths to keep that evidence a secret. The clearest explanation we've come across is the Catholic theology is incompatible with intelligent life on other planets planets. The Church has a history of shutting down new scientific discoveries that threaten they traditional Biblical worldview the most famous such such example is there persecution of Galileo. The scientists who demonstrated that the earth revolves around the sun after the church preached the inverse conspiracy theorists today feel that because the Bible does allude to life on other planets aliens are an enemy to the faith the existence of an other worldly society that doesn't share Christian values may lead many on earth to question their own beliefs in order to prevent a spiritual crisis. The Vatican instead covers up the discomforting evidence but brother Guy Council Magno doesn't buy that explanation. He's the director of the Vatican Observatory a church sponsored program that hopes to advance humanity's understanding of the universe by observing the far reaches of outer space in an interview with vox brother. Console Magno shared his thoughts on the perceived tension between faith and extraterrestrial life saying you you know we've already got passages of scripture that say we're not the only intelligent thing made by God. That's already built into the system. Religion never wanted to say that human beings were the center of the universe and he's not the only one who feels that way Jesuit priest Jose furnace another worker her at the Vatican Observatory gave a statement saying that there was room within Catholic theology for life on other planets. The archdiocese of Baltimore quoted him saying if we consider earthly creatures as brothers and sisters. Why can't we also speak of an extraterrestrial brother. You're in spite of these statements. Many still suggests that the church is actively covering up the existence of aliens but an even simpler alert explication is that Lucia or even the Catholic Church itself were involved in a hoax there are certainly holes and Lucius testimony like her Serbia's secret prophecies. We should note that. Many of the written accounts of the miracle of the sun weren't recorded until years or decades after the event so we can dismiss. Some of the later claims that were undocumented until much later but only days after the event news reports featured interviews reviews with witnesses and testimony consistently had four core features. I the son dimmed enough that the crowd could look at it without out hurting. There is second the solar light changed color creating rainbow effect in the field third. The Sun ended its movement spy plummeting heading towards the earth again. It's unlikely the sun actually fell from the sky but a descending spacecraft might give the appearance that it did and finally the rainwater instantly dried after the phenomenon was complete. Even if we throw out all other aspects of the testimony these these four features are consistent and well documented among all the witnesses and the event was viewed by thousands of people. The crowd was just too who big for everyone to be in on the scam although it is possible that some of the witnesses may have lied or exaggerated their claims out of a desire to be part out of the miracle the size of the crowd also undermines the theory that the miracle of the sun was a mass hallucination sociologist theologists ten author. Robert Bartholomew noted that shared delusions are incredibly rare and only crop up in specific situations in an article on one case titled The Bizarre Outbreak of Hallucinations in Oregon. He wrote such cases of shared social delusion art art typically incubated in small close-knit groups over a long period of time but the Group of pilgrims on October thirteenth nineteen seventeen gene was neither small nor close-knit. Most of the attendees had arrived in Fatima. Just that morning meaning. They weren't together for a long period of time beforehand hand either that said they did share one thing in common. They've all been primed by the news reports of Lucius predictions for six months month's Lucia had promised signs and wonders that worked her crowd to a fever pitch. They were eager and anxious to see a miracle performed except of course for the skeptics. Several attendees were only there specifically because they were convinced nothing would happen. They came hoping to disprove disprove Lucius prophecies.

The Barron witnessed the miracle of the Sun. It is possible that the witnesses so an ordinary solar phenomenon like sun dog or that they experienced retinal damage that caused them to hallucinate but those explanations don't don't account for the instantly dried rainwater or the nearly identical visions the crowd.

"In late nineteen seventeen ten year old Lucia Barbara experienced what she believed to be divine revelation she announced is that at noon on October thirteenth the little lady a divine being linked to the Virgin Mary would appear and perform an irrefutable the miracle at two o'clock that afternoon tens of thousands of witnesses saw the clouds part and the sun or some other other bright orb descend from the sky the silver discs heat dried all of the rain water from earlier that day and it arked across the sky in a seemingly impossible path many of the witnesses and the reporters who covered the phenomenon identified it as a divine revelation but secular alien enthusiasts have given a different explanation. It was a visitor from another planet. It can be difficult to examine the evidence first hand in the weeks and months after the miracle of the Sun authorities from the Vatican collected I witness statements sketches and maybe even and photographs but they hit the records away in their secret archives today. These two interpretations offer wildly Lee Different perspectives on the event the variation could be attributed to cultural or generational differences but some conspiracy theorists believe that the Catholic Church was complicit in a cover up of one of history's most widely witnessed alien sightings in the days and weeks after the so-called miracle of the sun personal testimonies swept through the Portuguese countryside within months Fatima had become a major destination for religious pilgrims officials began derisively referring to the worship there as the cult cult of Our Lady of Fatima at the center of the religious movement were Lucia Abobo era and her cousins Francisco and Hacienda the only I witnesses to the ladies many appearances according to Lucia and her cousins the little lady was a three foot tall bald being with black eyes is she wore an immodest knee length skirt. She always appeared surrounded by light and could communicate without opening her mouth off. Naturally the Church didn't appreciate the children's testimonies. Their stories were two different from Orthodox theology apology. Possibly they feared that if the public began digging too deeply into Lucius story they might stop seeing the visitation as religious and start thinking about alien life the Catholic Church eager to test the rumors immediately dispatched investigators to determine if the miracle of the Sun was a divine manifestation a demonic apparition or merely a hoax one. Such investigator was father. There are men well forming how who had already spent a month before the miracle of the Sun questioning Lucia by late nineteen seventeen he he was thoroughly convinced the truth of her story. Although he sent his credulous testimony back to the Vatican the Catholic Church continued you treat the event with suspicion fought him based priests and bishops encourage the locals to stay silent about what they'd seen presumably under orders orders from higher officials as for the investigators reports they were locked away in a secret archive for decades the only official official and public accounts of the miracle of the sun where the sparse stories printed in newspapers the Catholic churches attempts to stifle testimony made little little sense especially in light of the political situation at the time in Portugal as a secular government passed legislation designed to weaken the Church's his power the Vatican needed a miracle to inspire its Portuguese followers the Catholic leadership's reluctance to embrace the miracle of the Sun has led many to believe that the so called miracle was in fact something even more mysterious officials bad lucia and her cousins to keep quiet about what they'd seen but the children would not be silenced at least not until a flu epidemic swept through Fatima in nineteen nineteen. All three children grew sick and nine year old Francisco enciso succumbed to the onus he died on April Third Nineteen nineteen his older sister Hacienda initially seemed to recover only for the ailment to return the following. Spring Hocine died in February one thousand nine hundred twenty just a month before her tenth birthday her or passing left Lucia the only surviving witness who had actually seen and spoken with the little lady at the time the church was still doing everything it could to stem the increasingly popular cult of the Lady of Fatima on June Seventeenth Nineteen twenty one to keep fourteen year old Lucia away from growing throng of worshippers the Bishop of Lady A- encouraged her to enroll in schooling at a convent convent in Porto Portugal. She gladly complied. She departed fought him alone leaving behind her friends family and local supporters orders when she arrived at the convent. She learned that she'd also have to abandon her identity. Eager to prevent Lucia from spreading reading unfortunate rumours throughout the convent. The mother superior ordered her to tell no one what she experienced when prompted. Lucille was was to claim that her name was Maria dos Doris and that she was from Lisbon Lucia did as she was instructed for several several years she disappeared into the convent life but meanwhile the story of the Little Lady and the miracle of the Sun continued to spread through through Portugal the movement grew until a shrine was erected over the home oak tree in Cova area and pilgrim's reported. They'd witnessed a steady stream of miracles there. The church ceased trying to stop the stories and began to control which details were shared appeared. The little ladies otherworldly appearance was downplayed and testimony that supported a traditional depiction of the Virgin. Mary proliferated rated that news never reached Lucia. She wasn't permitted to speak to the public nor could she read newspapers or meet with visitors mm-hmm all of Lucia's letters to and from her family were censored her world shrank to what she experienced within the convent invents walls in nineteen twenty five eighteen year old Lucia formerly enter training to become a nun because of the secular Portuguese government's mints strict restrictions on Catholic Institutions Lucia had to transfer to Spain to receive instruction as had been the case case in Porto. Lucy keepers in TUI also maintained her strict seclusion. She wasn't even permitted to write to her mother anymore. More perhaps the threat that she'd contradict the official Church story was just too high but it was becoming increasingly difficult for the Church to hide the truth about the growing cult of Fatima. A statue of the little lady was even erected inside the convent in order to prevent Lucia from seeing it. Her movements on the school grounds were restricted..

"Gerald Posner looking up the dark side of the Vatican history now and we're talking a little bit about the Nazis and the Vatican Bank, and collusion with fascist in Italy. Talk a little bit about the killing fields in eastern Europe. And there was the cleansing, and sort of the priestly involvement. One of the things is the Vatican had probably earlier information about civilian massacres. They were taking place in Poland. Romania Gracia crazy with a Catholic country. And there were, there were pre-convention, the head of Cratia was a Catholic priest in there was a Catholic priest priest involved in some of the concentration camps in Croatia. Now this was a small minority. I'm not saying most priests were not, but it certainly gave many prisoners the idea that there was an endorsement by the fact of the clergy involved in the murders in some cases, but they also saw them what I mean by that is the pope had something that no western country, British and Americans, have he had preached in these little parishes, and towns in Poland where the killings were taking place and, and scattered around the west of each Europe and they would report, what they saw to their bishops and the bishop's would send it back to the secretary of state's office in the Vatican. And the pope pope was a hands on micromanage, and then the. The question becomes with all those early reports. Why weren't they bit more aggressive and that kept historians debating forever? The. The Nazis put in a ten percent tax on German Catholic. They funnel back which could have looked like helping to buy off the pope Joe Kennedy was was one point sort of pro Hitler, because it great for business. Do you think if you go back into that context, you give the, the Vatican a little bit of a break because of that? Yeah. That was clearly a factor. And you've mentioned something very important when you mentioned the tax in Germany and a few other countries, they're Germany. They had collected on the time of Bismarck, a Catholic church ak- ten percent tax very little bit on the total income. But it was a voluntary contribution being that you had your income, and then you had a report to the church, I made thirty thousand dollars in. Here's my three thousand dollars Hitler said in a nineteen thirty three deal with the Vatican. You recognize me. They became the first country to do so the Vatican did then all do some things for you on one of them. I will collect the tax at the source as a payroll, when company pays it out at Volkswagen adversities Benz or whatever. We'll take that Senate. Right over to you by nineteen forty two and forty three in the middle of the war that can was collecting one hundred million dollars that was big money back then from that tax. And it clearly had away on their mind. If they spoke out our moved against the Nazis on the issue of civilian killing Hitler might well, keep that money for himself and put the Vatican in a bind hit there. Might even move against Catholics in Germany or try to bring the pope back to Germany's a prisoner not excusing, the pope silence. But I understand there are reasons why they may have been timid about speaking out, more forcefully. And one thing that was kind of outrageous was one point they were splitting profits on, like insurance, new or insurance, which they weren't paying off the holocaust victims. I think there's an incident in which the Vatican was invested in insurance companies the biggest talion insurance company Generali, they have a majority stake in a smaller one, the fourth largest fund the aria and those companies in the later latter stages. The war started to steal the life insurance policies early of Jews being sent to the death camps. There's no evidence at the Vatican. Knew about that, that earned the profits by their stakes in the companies but it's still a moral problem for them going forward. I'm the first book to talk about that moral problem with relationship with Mussalini. Well, I it's I guess if for them, it was a question when I say that the, the size that it was questioned for the Vatican of the lesser of two, evils the greater evil than Mussalini as far as they were concerned where the read the communist Bolsheviks in Russia. They Stalin and the communist, destroying synagogues and orthodox, Russian Orthodox churches in Catholic churches. They were equal opportunity. Atheist Mussalini had a moral code that fit with the Vatican that meant no abortion, large families strict morality, in terms of social code. It was fine. He was a Catholic and he eventually came out of Louise anti-catholic in some ways he got baptized publicly. He got remarried by a priest and he gave the Vatican war power than it had since lost attempt. He's the one who's nonsense as a separate country their own sovereign rights. They had no right to do anything else, except to run it as a sovereign nation and the Vatican in turn gave him the knowledge -ment in nineteen twenty nine that he was. Was the real deal that he had their support in Italy. And every home had a picture of Mussalini on the wall, and crucifix, naked. I didn't realize until I read to the entire Vatican. Now is reduced to two thirds of a mile or something. It's incredibly small don't realize, when, you know, when it has a flag at the UN has so many followers around the world. It's the only country that I say this. I always hesitating only because I'm ready for somebody to call you up later and say, no, there's another country only country that I believe in the world. Owns more real estate outside of its of its size than the country itself far more property around the world owned by the Vatican. Then the size of the country itself, you can walk across in twenty minutes. Looking at some of the intrigue now, there were thoughts Pope John Paul might have been the intended one to be poisoned. And Pope John Paul died in there were rumors of their talk a little bit about that. In nineteen seventy eight after fifteen years as Popa Paula six died. And when they went to pick the new pope the, the concrete took place, a pick, the, the patriarch Venice cardinal Venice, and he took the name. Pope John Paul, the first he was he died thirty three years later while he was pope before he died. There was an orthodox Bishop came to visit him in while they were having coffee that Bishop killed over heart attack, and died. It was just after the pope gave him a Cup of coffee, the rumors of the Vatican. Maybe that was a poison coffee meant for the pope pope promise to be the guy who was going to reform the curious that you talked about, before Jim maybe changed the Vatican bike might even fire the head of the Vatican Bank. And then thirty three days after becoming pope, he's dead and the Vatican. Screws up everything about his death. They don't have an autopsy they lie about how he was discovered because none discovered America in the morning that might not be look good because of woman discovered him. And so it just becomes a disaster of a writer. Put out a book that said the pope was murdered. I think it's so six million copies. In the end I conclude the pope was not murdered. But his death was handled in a way that conspiracy theories from day, one going down to a minute and a half year or so I hadn't realized the extent to which John Paul the second, obviously coming out of Poland was, was so rarely anticommunist, but that he worked pretty closely with William Casey in the CIA, and maybe the guy that tried to assassinate him was attached to the Bulgarian secret service was real. It was Cold War. Becomes polish. Pope takes over at a time when the communist country Margaret Thatcher becomes the prime minister of England and two years later. Ronald Reagan, the president of the US, they are soulmates on this ideology against communism and the pope uses the Vatican Bank with Reagan's help. And as you said, Casey, and the to send money back to solidarity at the same time the priest on the ground provide information, tell back to the that they love the same type of intelligence, it came in, and we'll work through about the civilian killings was now available to tell them what was happening about the communist, and I described for the first time, in instance in which three million dollars golden gets stuffed into the fake side of a SUV in bottom of an SUV and an appre stripes it from Rome back to a dance. This is the type of stuff that was happening back in the height of the Cold War with the pope and patron Reagan..
