His Grey Eminence George Soros
No doubt you have seen the story about the global financial wizard George Soros, who has has been bankrolling three Irish pro-abort outfits through his “Open Society Foundations”. To refresh your memory, the lucky organisations are the Abortion Rights Campaign, Amnesty International Ireland, and the Irish Family Planning Association. So Mr Soros is throwing his considerable weight behind the campaign to repeal the Eighth Amendment, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of Euros.
It’s funny—or perhaps not— that there has been no outcry in the media about this blatant foreign interference in Irish affairs. If you are old enough, you will remember that around the time the Eighth Amendment was carried, the American pro-life campaigner Fr Paul Marx of Human Life International was excoriated for his modest assistance to the pro-life cause. It’s also funny that Irish pro-abort outfits, nearly all of whose members are strongly inclined to socialism, have no qualms at all about receiving pots of money from hated capitalists.
There is one very encouraging aspect to this latest development. There must be some kind of pro-life mole attached to the Open Society Foundations, who’s been leaking this very revealing and embarrassing information. The most damning part of the leaked document reads: “With one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the world [Ireland], a win there could impact other strongly Catholic countries in Europe, such as Poland, and provide much needed proof that change is possible, even in highly conservative places.”
I enjoyed this satire on Soros that I found on the blog Eccles Is Saved:
Zillionaire George Soros has finally admitted something that was long suspected by Catholics, namely that he was entirely responsible for Vatican II and its consequences. This confession is seen as the most devastating in a week in which (a) Soros was revealed to be funding Irish groups campaigning for abortion, and (b) he was discovered to have paid $650K to influence American bishops during the Pope’s visit last year. (As for (b), we may exclude bishops such as Dolan and Cupich, who are already capable of causing mayhem without any financial incentive.)
By using his considerable influence, Soros managed to bring in many innovations that were previously blamed on the Spirit of Vatican II. Destruction of the old liturgy, the hermeneutic of rupture, an increased tolerance for abortion, divorce, euthanasia, and same-sex relationships, and a push for women priests… these were not actually agreed by Vatican II but somehow Soros’s money managed to convince people that they were.
It is also believed that Soros was behind the election of Pope Francis, and that Amoris Laetitia— which even the pope has never read properly—started life as a romantic novel by a “nun on the bus”, backed by that financial wizard [that’s Soros of course] who made £1bn out of the UK’s problems on “Black Wednesday”.
So what will Uncle George do next? Will he himself run for the position of pope next time? Or will he simply remain a humble cardinal, an Eminence Grise behind the scenes?
