ON THE QUESTION OF YOUR CONVERTING TO ISLAM AND ABOLISHING USURY WORLDWIDE
As you must already know, the most powerful religion of the West is now failing. It has lost its moral authority under the weight of so many scandals and cannot possibly recover because no liberal feminist atheist secular Western politician has the will to defend the Church. Indeed, these depraved heathens actively desire the destruction of social conservatism and religion in their mania to enjoy their sexual liberation uncriticised.
In another age, a non-matriarchal government might wish to defend the Church, but no longer, infested as it is by atheists, homosexuals, liberals and feminists who feel only contempt and disgust for social conservatives and the institution of marriage. Such is the depravity and dementia of the typical Western politician that in Britain we have Catholic MPs voting for gay marriage.
"Out of the 82 Catholic MPs, 47 - almost 60 per cent - were in favour of same-sex marriage. Of these, 32 are Labour, 12 Conservative, two Liberal Democrat and one SDLP."
If Your Holiness or your successor can see your way to excommunicating and naming and shaming them as consigned for eternal damnation unless they repent, it would serve as a timely warning for others tempted to follow in their sinful footsteps.
It cannot be denied, therefore, that Christianity has lots its moral authority and is no longer able to maintain the morals of the West.
Soon the morally, economically and intellectually bankrupt and demented matriarchal West will be the laughing stock of the world, because their politicians are afraid of the worst of their women - the fornicatresses with illegitimate offspring who have the vote.
They are always the ones who keep voting Democrat if they are American and Labour if they are British. These immoral women tend to be bad mothers who send their children to bad schools, whose children will reach adulthood being the opposite of a productive citizen.
The Catholic Church which has lost is moral authority can do nothing even as the West is overwhelmed by sluts and bastards with the vote. Of course, the liberal feminist political establishment will fall over themselves to pander to them by bribing them with the taxes of the productive.
Also, the West is now financially crippled by the weight of the debts incurred by decades of irresponsible borrowing.
Soon, it will no longer be able to service its debts without resorting to hyper-inflation. As you are German, I need not remind you of what happened when a nation experiences the kind of hyper-inflation that wipes out the savings of the middle classes.
The only way the West can default on its debts now is to abolish usury.
The only way to abolish usury is for the entire West to convert to Islam and appeal for this abolition to be GLOBAL.
A small step in that direction, would be for Your Holiness to convert to Islam and urge the West to renounce usury.
When you have done so, you could also urge your successor to do so too.
Should you do all this, you will find that the scandal about homosexual and paedophile priests will just fade away and be replaced by praise for your courage and your vision.
You really have nothing to lose now anyway. Like the Balkans, the Trinity is not worth the bones of a single Pomeranian grenadier. The Trinity is after all the Achilles heel of Christianity, and what rational priest would want a religion with an Achilles heel that is already so well-known?
You would do mankind a greater service by calling for the worldwide abolition of usury as a Muslim convert.
It is quite clear to me which scripture is clearer and more humane, and which states its position against usury more clearly.
The following quotations are from the Hebrew Bible, 1917 Jewish Publication Society translation:
If thou lend money to any of My people, even to the poor with thee, thou shalt not be to him as a creditor; neither shall ye lay upon him interest. (Exodus, 22:25)
And if thy brother be waxen poor, and his means fail with thee; then thou shalt uphold him: as a stranger and a settler shall he live with thee. Take thou no interest of him or increase; but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy money upon interest, nor give him thy victuals for increase. (Leviticus, 25:35-37)
Thou shalt not lend upon interest to thy brother: interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of any thing that is lent upon interest. Unto a foreigner thou mayest lend upon interest; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon interest; that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou puttest thy hand unto, in the land whither thou goest in to possess it. (Deuteronomy, 23:20-21)
"Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury."
"Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.."
"…Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?"
Those who charge usury are in the same position as those controlled by the devil's influence. This is because they claim that usury is the same as commerce. However, God permits commerce, and prohibits usury. Thus, whoever heeds this commandment from his Lord, and refrains from usury, he may keep his past earnings, and his judgment rests with God. As for those who persist in usury, they incur Hell, wherein they abide forever (Al-Baqarah 2:275)
God condemns usury, and blesses charities. God dislikes every disbeliever, guilty. Lo! Those who believe and do good works and establish worship and pay the poor-due, their reward is with their Lord and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. O you who believe, you shall observe God and refrain from all kinds of usury, if you are believers. If you do not, then expect a war from God and His messenger. But if you repent, you may keep your capitals, without inflicting injustice, or incurring injustice. If the debtor is unable to pay, wait for a better time. If you give up the loan as a charity, it would be better for you, if you only knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:276-280)
O you who believe, you shall not take usury, compounded over and over. Observe God, that you may succeed. (Al-'Imran 3:130)
And for practicing usury, which was forbidden, and for consuming the people's money illicitly. We have prepared for the disbelievers among them painful retribution. (Al-Nisa 4:161)
The usury that is practiced to increase some people's wealth, does not gain anything at God. But if people give to charity, seeking God's pleasure, these are the ones who receive their reward many fold. (Ar-Rum 30:39)
