WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING CONCORDATS -LEGAL BINDING AGREEMENTS WITH STATES - we see that the Church has a certain MODUS OPERANDI which really hasn't changed since Hitler's Concordat of WWII.
1. PUSH FOR A CONCORDAT WITH A CERTAIN COUNTRY BY MAKING DEALS WITH A PARTY SYMPATHETIC TO THE CHURCH
2. OFFER THE CONCORDAT TO THAT PARTY AS A REWARD FOR AGREEING TO THE SOVEREIGNTY OF A MURDEROUS, FASCIST STATE WITHIN THE COUNTRY,
ASSURING THE SAID PARTY THAT THE MURDEROUS FASCISTS WOULD BE PEACE MAKERS AND EASILY CONTROLLED BY THE COUNTRY
3. SIGN THE CONCORDAT WITH THE COUNTRY
4. COLLECT TAX MONEY FROM THAT COUNTRY AD PERPETUUM, ONLY TO BE INTERRUPTED WHEN THE CHURCH SO DESIRES _ AND WHY SHOULD IT, WHEN IT IS SO PROFITABLE?
5. KEEP THE COUNTRY THAT SIGNED THE CONCORDAT IN A STATE OF SERVITUDE, AD PERPETUUM
6. PROMISE PROTECTION FROM THE HITLERITE STATE TO THAT COUNTRY
7. BREAK YOUR PROMISE, LET THE FASCISTS RUN LOOSE AND KILL THE LEADERS OF THE COUNTRY AND OF THE PARTY WHO MADE THE DEAL
8. MASSACRE AND KILL ALL THE JEWS
9. COLLECT ALL THEIR FORTUNES
10. START AGAIN WITH A NEW COUNTRY.
Once you understand this, you will see why IT IS PURE SUICIDE TO EVEN CONTEMPLATE TO SIGN ANY AGREEMENT WHATSOEVER WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH< EVER< EVER<EVER!!!
MY remarks in brackets[ ], and in black, DS
The concordat is something that up until now I took for given, but never looked into.
Now I see that there has been a long run in establishing it.
Pacelli [that is Pius XII, DS] as nuncio had concordats in place on a state level in Bavaria (1924), Prussia (1929) and Baden (1932). But on an empire level he had problems, because of an unstable Weimar republic. The Holy See as well as members of the Center party were pushing for it.[ Just like what is happening today in Israel: the Holy See is pushing for it, and Peres, Beilin are also pushing for it]
Ludwig Kaas, leader of the Center[ Catholic] Party,[ our Shimon Peres of the Kadima Party] was offered a fast deal on the concordat, by von Papens assurance if the Center was to agree to the enabling act of Hitler![ equivalent to today's Arabs and "Palestinians"', meaning: you agree to a PA state and internationalization of Jerusalem, the Vatican will sign a concordat with Israel as a reward]
sidenote: Ludwig Kaas went to the same Jesuit founded school Klaus Barbie was on[ PS:There are also rumors that Shimon Peres went to a Jesuit school as a child, but only rumors, nothing substantiated, that I know of]
To this day the concordat is still in place.
Interesting is article 18 I came across:
"Staatsleistungen an die Kirche können nur „im freundschaftlichen Einvernehmen" abgeschafft werden. (Artikel 18)"
Tranlation: state benefits to the church can only be disposed of in friendly agreement
This is saying: You have to pay the church until they are OK with stopping it…
New concordats explicitly based on the concordat from 1933 are still being put in power today, the latest in 2005.
The 2005/6 concordat was signed by nuncio / archbishop Dr. Erwin Josef Ender.
