I have tried to resist the idea that we have an apostate on the see of Peter. It is such a shocking thought. How could it be? But the evidence piles up. The latest is the news that Marxist ex-priest Leonardo Boff is a particular friend of Pope Francis who reads and re-reads his Marxist scribblings. Edward Pentin, in his article below, quotes Boff’s crass rubbishing of St John Paul II and Cardinal/Pope Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. Is there a clearer sign of this man’s corrupted mind – and of Francis’s apostasy? Once again we are exposed to the deadly fantasies of a man locked away in a dark theoretical nightmare. I think there must be a special place in hell for unhinged theorists.
Liberation Theologian Leonardo Boff is a Keynote Speaker at Vatican’s ‘Economy of Francesco’ Conference
Edward Pentin, NCR, 19 November 2020
The controversial former Franciscan priest was disciplined by the Vatican in the 1980s, for disseminating Marxist-oriented ideas that demonstrated ‘a profound misunderstanding of the Catholic faith.’
VATICAN CITY — The controversial Brazilian liberation theologian Leonardo Boff will be a keynote speaker at the Economy of Francesco, a three-day international Vatican-organized conference that starts tomorrow aimed at making finance inclusive and sustainable.
A former Franciscan priest, Boff will speak on “socio-ecological responsibility: global view, territorial actions” along with Father Vilson Groh, who works with the poor in the favela (slum) of Florianopolis in southern Brazil.
According to the Economy of Francesco organizers, the Nov. 19-21 conference aims to propose ideas that “move and live for a fairer, more fraternal and sustainable economy and give a soul to the economy of tomorrow.”
Some 2,000 economists and entrepreneurs under the age of 35 from around the world will take part in the live-streamed meeting which will include a 24-hour “marathon” of online exchanges on the second day.
