Was there a ‘Coup’ In The Vatican to Install an Anti-Capitalist Hater of the West as Pope?

Today there is some interesting news that a Catholic Cardinal is admitting that there was a “coup” of sorts that deposed the more conservative Pope Benedict and made him step down in order to install a far, far left Pope that would push an anti-capitalist message. If the rumors are true, it sure seems to have worked!

The story came from Powerline yesterday…

One thing that that has puzzled a lot of people since the selection of Pope Francis two years ago is how a left-leaning Pope could succeed two very serious conservative Popes—John Paul II and Benedict XVI—who you would have thought had stacked the ranks of the Cardinals with clergy that would perpetuate their theological and philosophical outlook. Was Benedict hounded out of office by some kind of internal Vatican scandal perhaps? Was there some ecclesiastical version of a coup?

There’s no evidence that I’m aware of—until now. Three days ago the National Catholic Register ran a very curious article about the contents of a newly published authorized biography of retired Belgian cardinal Godfried Danneels. The Register article reports:

…At the launch of the book in Brussels this week, [Cardinal Godfried Danneels] said he was part of a secret club of cardinals opposed to Pope Benedict XVI.

He called it a “mafia” club that bore the name of St. Gallen. The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, to make it “much more modern”, and for Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to head it. The group, which also comprised Cardinal Walter Kasper and the late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, has been documented in Austen Ivereigh’s biography of Pope Francis, The Great Reformer.

So, maybe this is why Pope Benedict so mysteriously just disappeared one day. He was essentially sent to sleep with the fishes, mafia style.

Whatever the truth is, it’s hard to dispute that this new Rep Pope we have lends credence to this theory!
