Cardinal Burke does not agree with the Pope when it comes to one world government:
“Before the challenges of our time, there are those who propose and work for a single global government, that is, for the elimination of individual national governments, so that all of humanity would be under the control of a single political authority. For those who are convinced that the only way to achieve the common good is the concentration of all government in a single authority, loyalty to one’s homeland or patriotism has become an evil,” he said.
“The divine authority, in accord with the order written upon the human heart, does not make just and legitimate a single global government. In fact, the divine law illumines our minds and hearts to see that such a government would be, by definition, totalitarian, assuming the divine authority over the governance of the world,” he added.
The Cardinal said that the “sinful pride which inspires the pursuit of a single global government has been likened to the pride of our ancient ancestors, after the Deluge, who thought that they could unite heaven with earth by their forces alone, building the Tower of Babel.”
Go here to read the rest. One government of the entire globe is a chimera. If an effort were made to bring about this impossibility, authoritarian measures implemented with massive bloodshed would be the order of the day. PopeWatch thinks that a global government will continue to be one found only in science fiction, rather than reality. At least let us pray that this bad idea remains firmly in the realm of fiction. Ironically, if it did come about, no doubt Popes, far more clear thinking than our current Pope, would find themselves constantly at odds with it, just as the Papacy created the Holy Roman Empire, and then spent the next thousand years usually opposing the Emperors. Christ said His Kingdom was not of this world, and the folly that has often found a home in the Vatican when it comes to secular politics illustrates what our Savior was talking about.
