Yesterday:Vatican asks why the US has money to bail out the rich- but not the poor

( c.f. Zenit)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The Holy See is asking why the developed world's US is prepared to put 700 billion US Dollars into supporting their own failed banking sector- rather- while only giving tricklings of aid to the undeveloped world.

These accusations are by Archbishop Celestino Migliore, permanent Vatican observer to the United Nations. He says that the UN made promises to fulfill development goals by 2015, but that these goals are intricately involved with Human Rights- and Respect for Human Dignity.

He says that the commitments by these nations- politically to Africa and the developing world- are in fact obligations on these others- socially and morally- by the conscience of good.

He says that the Millennium Declaration Goals are not only achievable- but with focus on them- will be achieved if the UN keeps her promises to do so.

He further lambasted the suggestions involving goals involving sexual and reproductive fields, perhaps a reference to the recent efforts by the UN, in conjunction with American abortion firm "International Planned Parenthood" to force a two child limit of children for parents in the Filipines.

Basically- the Holy See cannot see how- the Developed world can spend so much on Armed Conflict, which often affects the Developing World, and on bailing out their own rich citizens from lost gambles- and not supply the minor amounts needed to fulfill political promises they themselves have made. Nor why so much money is hoped by some be spent on trying to decline the populations in developing nations. Recent accusations also appeared from some Catholic sources- that after the devastating storm which hit North Korea- much of the "aid" packages given to the victims were condoms. The situation in the Filipenes also still vibrates in the ears. Especially as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, created by the UN- says that people must not be persecuted for Sexual Orientation!
