In my last post concerning #OWS (Of Sheep and Goats #OWS) I stated that the ‘Right’ was involved in this chaos as well. The Religious Right (Pope/Vatican) and the Religious Left are joining in chorus to Unify and Centralize our Economic future.
Rick Warren’s Social Justice Bible was given to Barack Hussein Obama after his second swearing in (where there was no bible present). Take a look at those who endorse the Poverty and Justice Bible:

The inspiration behind it
It was US pastor and writer Rick Warren who laid the
foundations for The Poverty and Justice Bible.
He’d discovered that there were 2,000 verses on poverty – and couldn’t believe he’d never noticed before.
U2 frontman Bono, in his talk to the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC in November 2006, pointed out that the only
time Christ is judgmental is on the subject of the poor.
He also referred to the 2,000+ mentions of poverty in the Bible, saying ‚’that’s a lot of airtime!’
How the work was done
It took a team of Bible Society researchers poring over the CEV to identify every verse that’s specific about God’s take on social injustice.
These range from Old Testament prophecies to Jesus’ radical teachings. Just about every page has some emphasis on justice and fairness.
It’s on the global agenda for politicians, activists and opinion formers. But fighting poverty and tackling injustice is no new concept for the 21st century.
This Bible is proof that, on issues of social justice, God has plenty to say.
When it comes to poverty and justice, God got there first.” see here for previous post from sister site
There is good news in all of this. Apparently when I asked the question whether or not the polarized sides would be able to ‘Coexist’ is an affirmative. With the actualization that both sides of the isle (politically and religiously) agree that society at large (Globally) needs to be centralized then we can safely assume that all is moving toward the collective and that God’s word is being confirmed! If you had any question to whether or not the prophetic clock had hit snooze, let me forewarn you this is not the case; You’re Late for Work, time to get up and get moving!
The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.
“Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority,” was at times very specific, calling, for example, for taxation measures on financial transactions. “The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence,” it said.
It condemned what it called “the idolatry of the market” as well as a “neo-liberal thinking” that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems. “In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviors like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale,” it said, adding that world economics needed an “ethic of solidarity” among rich and poor nations.
“If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid,” it said.
It called for the establishment of “a supranational authority” with worldwide scope and “universal jurisdiction” to guide economic policies and decisions.
Asked at a news conference if the document could become a manifesto for the movement of the “indignant ones”, who have criticized global economic policies, Cardinal Peter Turkson, head of the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department, said: “The people on Wall Street need to sit down and go through a process of discernment and see whether their role managing the finances of the world is actually serving the interests of humanity and the common good. “We are calling for all these bodies and organizations to sit down and do a little bit of re-thinking.”
(2009)FYI- Today is not the First time El Popé has called on a “New Financial World Order.”
