Article vetted by the Vatican provides scathing critique of Steve Bannon, who is Catholic, the Trump Whitened House and evangelical fundamentalism in america
An explosive article written by 2 close associates of Pope Francis has accused Steve Bannon , the chief White House strategist, of espousing an apocalyptic geopolitics whose roots are not too far as well as that of Islamist extremism.
The article within La Civilt Cattolica , that is vetted by the Vatican before distribution, lays out a scathing evaluate of evangelical fundamentalism in the US, quarrelling that, on issues ranging from weather change to migrants and Muslims, proponents of the ideology have used a twisted reading of bible verses and the Old Testament that stimulates conflict and war above all else.
The particular piece was published just times after evangelical leaders met ALL OF US president Donald Trump in the Oval Office from the White House and laid practical him in prayer following conversations about religious freedom, support with regard to Israel and healthcare reform.
Trump has never convincingly voiced of having religious faith, but gained the overwhelming support of whitened evangelical Christians in the 2016 political election.
Vatican experts said the article might have had the explicit backing from the church and Pope Francis . Its authors, Antonio Spadaro, the editor-in-chief of the publication, plus Marcelo Figueroa, the editor-in-chief from the Argentinian edition of the Vatican newspapers LOsservatore Romano, are known as confidantes associated with theArgentinian pope.
Bannon, the former editor from the rightwing Breitbart news website, will be Catholic, and while he is only quickly mentioned in the article, the item undoubtedly takes aim at the Trump White House.
It claims that bogus religious arguments are being used to demonise segments of the population particularly when considering migrants and Muslims and to advertise the US as a nation that is fortunate by God, without ever considering the bond between capital plus profits and arms sales.
