The Millennium Summit
Same as Pontius Pilate?
Ref.: Millenium Summit of the United Nations, New York City, Sept. 6-8, 2000
In the Third Millennium of the Christian Era which now begins, totalitarian Communism continues to be a scourge of mankind and a real threat to world peace. Communism -with its doctrine which is diametrically opposed to the Commandments of the Law of God and on account of its cruelty, was denounced as a "Satanic whip," and as "intrinsically perverse" (Pope Pius XI, encyclical letter "Divini Redemptoris")- murdered 100 million victims in the Twentieth Century, and even today enslaves 1.3 billion people in China, Cuba, Vietnam, North Korea and Laos.
Through the narco-guerrillas and with the support of Havana, Communism today bleeds Colombia and encourages revolutionary movements in Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, etc. Today it is in the process of reorganization in Russia and several Eastern European countries.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning a visit to Communist Cuba at the conclusion of the Millennium Summit. The purpose of this trip is to tighten political and economic bonds with Havana, with the purpose of reviving past Soviet Union agreements. These are the very agreements that served to promote and finance Communist revolution, starting in Cuba and spreading throughout numerous nations of Latin America and Africa.
In the face of this threat which, like a spiritual AIDS threatens to contaminate the Third Millennium, we ask the following question; what will the Secretary General of the United Nations and the mandataries of free countries do? Will they take a stand against the Communist regimes that systematically and with utter impunity violate the United Nations'
Declaration of Human Rights? Or will they settle for the easy way out, thereby becoming accomplices and opting for a Pontius Pilate attitude?
History and, above all Divine Providence, will reward generously the unfaltering attitude of those who defend the rights of God and of the 1.3 billion people who suffer today in Communist countries. But together they will judge harshly, those who had the real possibilities to take a stand against that evil, but instead opted to do nothing about it.
