Earth Angel Said:
I'm sorry i fail to understand how the Catholic church has made mexico poor. So what church or religion has made Africa poor then? I fail to see how
churches make countries poor.
Religion cripples people mentally. Spirituality is fine, which is why Christ talked about spiritual need and not a "church". Religion is a
political force. Spirituality is good for humans, religion is not. It is a tool for creating orderly subjects.
Mexico is full of orderly, poor Catholics. When this continent was settled, it was the church who settled Mexico (and most of the California coast
with the missions) and Catholic spanish bigots who built the Mexican caste system. Conversely, the free-thinking founders of America weakened the
Church's (and religion's) global hold on humanity's throat and created a prosperous nation of free worship (or lack-of-worship) based on each
person's individual belief in a creator or God. America prospered because its subjects were mentally free.
Even after the westernized "revolution", Mexico still remains abjectly poor (except for the few wealthy families). They are poor because the people
look to the church for guidance before they look to themselves. Catholicism as a belief system, encourages the poor to be proud of their situation
and to humbly submit to the church. Oh sure you might get a rogue priest in some country who rallys the people toward a political cause, but such
priests are surely moderated by The Vatican in such cases.
The Church exists in Mexico to mollify the masses and to keep the flow of drugs going north. America is the largest drug-using country by a long
shot. At least half of those drugs come through the Mexican border (lots also come through Florida). Americans as a whole, want their illegal
drugs and so systems have to be set up to get illegal drugs into the US and allowing the PTB to profit from them.
That's what exists under the
surface of our relationships with our Southern continental neighbors.
If Mexicans were ever to become free-thinkers and toss of the shackles of the Vatican and that religion, they may become self-aware, and that might
cause revolution, which would disrupt (or complicate) the tons of drugs which Mexico shuttles into the US (and which the Bushes, The Mafia, the
Vatican, etc, all get a piece of). This system cannot be tampered with or the PTB will get very upset.
I'll quote from the U of San Diego here:
The border is the target area for most drug trafficking interdiction. But however many Border Patrol agents, laws and fences, still between 50 and
80 percent of the coc aine and marijuana entering the United States is smuggled across our southwest border with Mexico. U.S. Congress,
House, Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control, Study Mission to Brownsville, Texas; Mexico City, Mexico; and Guatemala City, Guatemala,
December 9-13, 1990. Washington, U.S.G.P.O., 1991. (101st Congress, 2nd session, House);
MEXICO: illicit cultivation of opium poppy (cultivation in 2001 - 4,400 hectares; potential heroin production - 7 metric tons) and cannabis
cultivation in 2001 - 4,100 hectares; government eradication efforts have been key in keeping illicit crop levels low; major supplier of heroin and
largest foreign supplier of marijuana and methamphetamine to the US market; continues as the primary transshipment country for US-bound coc aine
from South America; major drug syndicates control majority of drug trafficking throughout the country; growing producer and distributor of ecstasy."

The PTB took great care to ensure that the Mexican people remain as mules, in general. They're kept dumb so that Mexico can be America's be-yotch,
for lack of a better word. They're kept dumb, by religion.
Mexico exists today as little but the drug gateway for America into the western US. The entire "Drug War" is fraudulent and acts to keep the
Americans' eyes off of the profits made from the Drug Trade. This relationship is carefully controlled by the PTB in the US and the families that
rule Mexico by the Catholic Church's blessing. Sure NAFTA brought the Mexican worker into the picture, and some jobs flowed South, but that's a
different part of the NWO plan. The main thing is for drugs to keep flowing north.
It is the Catholic Church and their invisible partners, The Mafia, who built that relationship. Didn't the Bank of America used to be called Bank of
Italy back around 1925 or so? As I recall reading, they bought up lots of American banks in Los Angeles and up and down the west coast and
consolidated them back then before changing the name to BofA. I have a really good book about the Vatican and the Mafia. I'll dig this book out and
post more here. But then, I'm sure it won't matter.
Ask yourself this:
If an alien visitor landed in Mexico, and walked up to a dirty, birth-enslaved mother and her dirty, uneducated children selling Chiclets brand gum,
what question would that alien ask?
Wouldn't the aliens' first question be, "Who is your leader?"
Now would this woman point to the spires of the government? No, for the Mexican government is a front for the wealthy and connected, and she knows
it. She doesn't think much about the government anyway.
In fact, if this alien followed this woman to church over the course of a week, he'd have no problem identifiying the wonderfully robed, ordained men
who are the leaders of this woman. Our alien would see clearly that the church determines this woman's lot in life and keeps her glad to have it by
preaching that poverty is tantamount to holiness. He'd probably observe this woman putting ten percent of her begged monies into the collection
This alien might presumably transport himself to the source of these robed men, to further investigate. He'd see Vatican City and huge displays of
gaudy wealth. He'd see more collection plates, but this time he'd see where they're all emptied.
I'm not saying the church doesn't give back to the poor, but like a kind of
Munchausen Syndrome by proxy
, they'll only give back such alms as to keep the
