SYNOD IN MANGALORE- 1st and 2nd Oct -2012
Glamorous attire bombastic names and letters and usage of Latin and Hebrew words and quoting the “Bible” now and then is a deliberate method used by clergy to mesmerize laity and fool them. what they cannot explain to you convincingly they would force you to accept under the word “faith”
You can call a synod in any other name. It could be called as a “Conclave” a “Discussion”, a “Meet”, an ” Assembly” whatever, there is no much difference.
I gather that 13 Bishops some Arch-Bishops and a number of men wearing white frocks numbering about 200 will assemble at “Shanthi-Kiran” a Pastoral Centre in Bajjodi in Mangalore, so called Rome of the, East ostensibly to discuss about “empowering the laity” as spelt out by Rome 50 years back.
It took 50 years to discuss this important issue in public. It will take another 200 years to implement.
Nothing useful will come out of this “Synod”. Money for conducting this synod is collected from the laymen for they have perfected the art of collecting money and enjoying life.
The excess and surplus money they have stocked in different places is meant for their families, girl friends and paying for damages when they are caught red handed .
Large portion of money is paid to lawyers to evict laymen whose families have been living for centuries on lands donated by govt. and other Philanthrophic laymen. There are constant and regular rumours, but certainly believable that the Bishop of Mangalore is raided regularly by the enforcement Dept. and the money is equally shared to hush up the matter.
It is also said that recently, when enforcement Dept. raided the Bishops House nearly 8.50 crores was burnt by the Holy Bishop, the representative of Christ.
Karnataka Backward Christian Association, Indian Christian Service Association, Christian Reforms Foundation and many other organizations have been pressing and fighting for Transparency in the temporal management of the Church, but the crooked clergy has consistently foiled the laymen and forged the Balance sheets with the help of a small bunch of rogues, who are hand in glove with the clergy.
Nothing will come out of this “Synod”. These Criminal minded seasoned cheats will not hand over management of property and cash worth in crores to the laity, to whom all this belongs. Clergy is only a group of our servants , whom circumstances or innocent laity has put them in charge of their assets and properties, believing that they would be ‘Trust worthy’. But this gang whom laity holds in great respect has betrayed their masters. Time has come to take over our assets from these below mediocre people by a non- violent revolution.
They will not hand over power on a platter to us. It has not happened any where, any time, in History. We must learn from History and prepare ourselves for a Revolution and not waste time, money and energy on “Synods”
