Cardinal Zuppi and the new Italian Government (Liberal Bishop Part 108)

Cardinal Zuppi, President of the Italian Episcopal Conference, is quick to warn and oppose the new incoming Italian government, to be led by Giorgia Meloni, soon to be the first female Prime Minister, and her conservative party. Why? Because Zuppi sees her as opposing much of the Pope’s social agenda, which is pro-LGBT and silent on pro-abortion politicians.

And how about Meloni’s being strongly for God, family and country? Well, she is conservative while Zuppi and the Pope are liberal. She is pro-life while Church liberals accept or downplay the culture of DEATH. She is nationalistic and populist while liberals are attuned to the New World Order and want to do away with national interests and borders.

So Zuppi tags her as far-right, but being on the right is only in relation to one being on the left. Zuppi and Church liberals are far-left.

Zuppi says the Church will not be silent. But he has been silent about spiritual ills that plague the nation.

Zuppi and his ilk, with their liberal social agenda, are threatened by the emergence of this firebrand conservative. Well and good.

Top Italian prelate tells new government church will not be silent

ROME – Italy’s leading Catholic prelate has urged the country’s new leadership, seen as hostile to much of the pope’s social agenda, to stand up for the poor and vulnerable, saying the church itself will continue to advocate for the common good with “severity.”

In a statement published Sept. 27, Cardinal Matteo Zuppi, archbishop of Bologna and president of the Italian Episcopal Conference, said the church in Italy “will continue to indicate, with severity, if necessary, the common good and not personal interests; the defense of the inviolable rights of the person and the community.”

“In respect of the democratic dynamics and in the distinction of roles, it will not miss its contribution for the promotion of a more just and inclusive society,” he said.

On Sunday, Italy held national elections that saw the overwhelming victory of post-fascist politician Giorgia Meloni, who will be Italy’s first female prime minister, and her conservative “Brothers of Italy” party.
