Sacbc wanna be popular

Note by Marc Aupiais

I always laugh when I notice the difference between sacbc press releases etc and media quotes of them. The things they say to please media are quoted. The rest - the Catholic parts are left out.

Not so with what Cardinal Napier said recently- that the Catholic church has NO jurisdiction in deciding whether a couple uses condoms or not.

Sadly the heterodox legacy of John Paul II's incompetent, politically motivated, smiling magical circle church is far from dead, or retired. A church which lies about the gospel, and adds oddly about sex abuse claims still exists- here in Southern Africa and elsewhere. Unfortunately many of our bishops are better politicians than shepherds, and fishers of men.

Wikileaks kicked off Amazon, American companies warned not to host, French try block it- Reuters France24 - Cyber attacks force WikiLeaks to move web address

They said they chose to use Amazon to prove they were against free speech, and to use USA addresses and French addresses for the same reason. Wikileaks has lost their American address along with all (things) American. Though one dns group suggested it was due to constant web attacks (does that mean America employs an army of hackers as china allegedly does?).

The Pirate Party in Switzerland has given the group an address they are unlikely to lose given the power of the Pirate Party and the backlash for any who dare.

Their "web hotel" Swedish web servers are up and running and set to remain.

Recently Russia suggested that some elements of the control of the internet be shifted from America to the United Nations.

On the international censorship:

For the first time- US military banned from news sites reporting on Wikileaks says France24 - AFP- US army warns soldiers in Iraq against viewing WikiLeaks

Note by Marc Aupiais

I find it odd in the very least. Previous Wikileaks did not involve a warning of lawless behaviour and threats of prosecution for any US soldier reading news about Wikileaks. Yet these diplomatic Wikileaks being released- which has seen never before heard of aggression by the US government under Barack Obama against the whistle-blowers has prompted this?

Perhaps it is the way America humiliates her allies, or the fact many of her diplomats are spies and thus as credible as thief brigades.

Perhaps they fear morale. Or worse- terror attacks by their own troops once again. Even the Israeli army is allowed to be informed of what their government does. Yet, America somehow fears Wikileaks is Obama's Armageddon? Well they did invade babylon of old, in an illegal war.

That the person who allegedly leaked was openly serving illegally in the US army, contravening Don't Ask Don't Tell as an activist speaks volumes about Barack Obama.

Across the world, as with the fallout against America following 9/11- people will be turning against the nation once ironically called the Free World.
