Hey they admit it...
Cardinal Vlk pointed out that it was Christian politicians that came up with the idea of unified Europe. Italian politician and founder of the Christian Democratic Party Alcide De Gasperi, former French Prime Minister Robert Schuman and German statesman Konrad Adenauer are regarded as founders of the European Union.
In the interview Vlk links the European Union's flag to Christian values. The flag consisting of twelve stars on a blue background was admittedly inspired by the Bible. In Vlk's view the circle of stars refers to the twelve-star halo of the Virgin Mary.
Very few make the connection that EU today basically amounts to a re-forming of the "Holy Roman Empire" displaying the Pope's growing power. Don't forget what I wrote on the Royal Wedding blog entry too, that the royal houses do recognize the Pope as their leader.
Zenit [a pro-Catholic Vatican news site] admits this reality, in their 2008 article..
"Catholic Origins of the European Union"
It is interesting to think of all the "Protestant" nations signed on, interesting huh? This article has some revealing quotes in it. Notice here the power even over corporations and more. Robert Schuman was a Catholic politician who desired a "unifed Europe" in carrying out papal plans.
Q: What was Robert Schuman's vision for the development of a united Europe, and how widely was his vision shared by the other founders of what has become the European Union?
Fimister: The first European Community was the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) from which the other communities developed. These were eventually merged into the European Community and then placed within the larger framework of the European Union, which now includes intergovernmental cooperation on security and foreign affairs as well as the "communitarian" supranational tasks of the original community.
The political leaders who founded the ECSC were overwhelmingly Catholic: Robert Schuman was intensely loyal to the faith and affirmed publicly that papal encyclicals "define Catholic doctrine and bind in conscience" Konrad Adenauer and Alcide de Gaspari were also particularly important. The coal and steel plan was drawn up by an official, Jean Monnet, who became the first man to hold the office which is now called President of the Commission. He was not a committed Catholic but the essential architecture for the institutions was already being advocated by Schuman before Monnet came to him with his own project.
Never forget Rome has worked for centuries to advance the NWO and world government, Benedict is just continuing the plans that have been in place:
From Pope John XXIII:
“Men’s common interests make it imperative that at long last a world-wide community of nations be established” “But this general authority equipped with world-wide power and adequate means for achieving the universal common good cannot be imposed by force. It must be set up with the consent of all nations” “There is also a growing economic interdependence between States. National economies are gradually becoming so interdependent that a kind of world economy is being born”
This statue is outside the office in Brussels, a woman riding a beast, think no one figured out where they got that from? Think again.
Then there is the EU Parliament whose Tower of Babel design speaks for it's self:
Keep in mind the EU and UN work hand in hand quite strongly.....
Jer 51:7 Babylon [hath been] a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.
