Perhaps the word "denounce" is so strong, or perhaps it is so weak to express what the main stream people feel about the religious leaders of the world.
If the religious leaders of the world who preach in temples, synagogues, churches, mosques, different places of worships can tell their people, that represent billions of people in the world (Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhist, Hindu ...), that they cannot be the CONSCIENCE of their nations when war and peace is the issues of daily life?
If these religious leaders are unable to come together in a WORLD WIDE gathering and dare to speak out to their people and governments about what is right, fair and good for humanity?
If these religious leaders will only and individually speak out sometimes against what is not right and fair in the world and would not take a ONE stand in the name of God and humanity?
If these religious leaders are part of the game that play act one, two or three of the suffering of the peoples here and there in the world?
Then I denounce, as a Catholicpriest, these religions and their leaders.
I feel I am crying against the wall.
I feel, with many people, alone with the God of my life.
In all the Gospel, I do not find a call for violence and wars.
In the whole Holy Scriptures that I know from Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus ... I do find calls that stand with what is just fair and good, and WAR IS EVIL.
I cannot understand for how long these leaders that we believed in,
listen to, followed for years and years are able to be silent, as
they seem, in a world that cry injustices and unfairness!
When they will be able to dare to speak out LOUDLY and show us that they care for us their people and HUMANITY?
ENOUGH SAYING IT IN LOW VOICES HERE AND THERE ...
WE SHOULD START TO SAY IT OPENLY AND SHOW OUR LOVE TO OUR REAL NATIONS THAT WAS CREATED TO BRING JUSTICE, PEACE, EQUALITY, LOVE, LIBERTY, DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM TO THEMSELVES AND TO THE WORLD
RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND LAY PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THAT THEY HAVE A MISSION, AND NOW AND IMMEDIATELY, THEY ARE ALL CALLED TO THIS SAME MISSION: A WORLD BASED ON JUSTICE, PEACE AND TRUTH AND NOT ON SELF INTERESTS AND ECONOMY.
