Edit: right now, he’s the most favored to be the next Pope. This article identifies some of his political views which are in line with Liberation Theology and Marxist thinking. Right now Cardinal Turkson is the overall favorite to be next Pope according to Paddy Power, despite attempting to take himself out of the running by telling the press what he’ll do when he becomes Pope.
There is a world where it is possible to ‘wipe the tears from the eyes of those who suffer injustice‘. So says the man tipped by many to become the 294th successor to St. Peter as Pope and spiritual leader of the world’s one billion Roman Catholics.
Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, who currently serves as president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is a renowned champion of the poor and marginalized.
In a lecture at Durham University Centre for Catholic Studies two years ago, Cardinal Turkson argued that:
“…despite the naysayers, economic resources do exist that could help wipe the tears from the eyes of those who suffer injustice, who lack the basics of a dignified life, and who are in danger from any deterioration in the climate.”
In a call to action, he added that the poor “benefit from champions in solidarity who believe that injustice can be reduced, that harmonious relationships can be fostered, that our planetary ecology can be made sustainable, that a world of greater communion is possible”.
In October 2011, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace he heads set out a radical critique of global financial arrangements, which skew wealth and power away from developing countries.
It’s not surprising that this Bishop is a very enthusiastic supporter of aberrosexuality.
Part of his coat of arms even has a red chicken, symbolic of the Convention People's Party of Marxist agitator Kwame Nkrumah, who was backed by the Soviet Union.
The arms of Bishop Steib feature a tri-colored field - black, red, and green - which recalls the Flag of the Black Liberation Movement [represented by the cockerel]; this in turn is based on the Flag of the nation-state of Ghana, whose independence in 1957 gave rise to the general decolonization of the African continent. The colors represent, respectively, the great people that has sprung from this land, the blood shed in its defense, and the green plains of Africa. [It looks a lot like the flag of Communist East Germany, too]

|Edit: if you favor various forms of modern art like abstract expressionism, you are certainly disordered and perverse. Those who favor such forms of art prefer the esteem of the world to objectivity, and those who are relativists in aesthetics will be relativists in ethics as well.|
Is it any wonder that the Church in the world is in so much trouble with such Shepherds as the Archbishop of Paris?

|Fr. Schmidberger in his Christmas Video Address|
[kreuz.net] The Christ Child is the King of all times and lands. This was what the German District Superior of the Society of St. Pius X,, Father Franz Schmidberger said this Holy Night in a video speech.
The timely and even more, eternal fate of every single person is dependent upon his connection to the Christ Child.
Fr. Schmidberger called all men to come and kneel at the Manger.
With the Old Liturgy The Traditional Faith Will Return
With a look back on the year of 2010 Father Schmidberger was especially happy about an "increasingly sizeable number of young priests and seminarians who love the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass".
Contacts with the work of the Society of St. Pius X and an enthusiastic interest with it is a felicitous indicator:
"With the growing interest in the Liturgy there is also a preparedness to promote the Gospel without reservations even in a secular society."
Many young seminarians would like to fill, to reduce the faith with a purely human "improvement mission" -- explained the priest.
Although a return to the values of the truth Faith is for many seminarians a heartfelt concern.
"Meanwhile it is for many in the old generation, who steadfastly persist in reviving the promises of the "Spirit of the Council' -- contests the District Superior.
The proof is that the "Ideology of the Council" will be obsolete sooner or later.
German Bishops Ignore the Pope
In the video Father Schmidberger criticized the disposition of the majority of the German Episcopate:
"Many Bishops are still completely prejudiced against the work of Tradition of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre."
The lifting of the excommunications of January 2009 appeared as far as the Bishops were concerned to be "not to have arrived".
"The friendly hand shown by the Holy Father is almost completely ignored in Germany."
The discussions with Rome stand in complete opposition to the situation in Germany -- Fr. Schmidberger says:
"Although there are naturally still objective differences, the discussions are being held in a good atmosphere of mutual respect."
The perpedness to dialogue by the Bishops of Germany have a large backlog:
"It also touches us painfully that the same Shepherds have not amended the adulteration of the words of Consecration, although the Congregeation of Worship has already proposed this since October of 2006."

Rome[kath.net/as] The Bishop is not a pure manager, he is not a bureaucrat or a simple moderator and organizer of the life of the diocese. Much more, he must be a "father, brother and friend" and be on the "Christian and human path", who knows he has to create, "an atmosphere of trust, acceptance, sympathy, but also uprightness and justice".
With these words Pope Benedict XVI. addressed a second group of newly ordained Bishops this morning, who participated in a course organized by the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.
In his speak the Pope adumbrated a proper life program, that has validity for every Bishop. For that he went to some "enlightening" words of St. Thomas Aquinas. "Authority" and "Love" as "caritas" are says Thomas the fundamental requirements for a Bishop, which is also defined in the Dogmatic Constitution of the Second Vatican Council, "Lumen Gentium". The Council explains: "A bishop, since he is sent by the Father to govern his family, must keep before his eyes the example of the Good Shepherd, who came not to be ministered unto but to minister,(comp. Mt 20,28; Mk 10,45) and to lay down his life for his sheep (comp. Joh 10,11).
Taken from among men and compassed with weakness, he can have compassion for them, who are in ignorance and error (comp. Hebr 5,1-2). He should not refuse to hear his subordinates, who he cares for like true sons and be exhorted work eagerly with them. For he will give an account for your souls before God (comp. Hebr 13,17), should you observe through prayer, preaching and cared for him with any kind of charitable work, the same for any, who are still not of the same flock and are yet really commended by the Lord.
That he is as the Apostle Paul the most sinful, he is ready, to preach the Gospel to all (comp. Röm 1,14-15) and encourage his faithful to missionary zeal. (Lumen Gentium, 27)
The assignment of Bishops, according to the admonitions of Benedict VI., may never be understood within a mentality, in which efficiency an effectiveness are understood as the the center points. The attention of the Bishops may not valid in the first line to consider "what is to be done"; it is much more necessary, "to always keep the ontological dimension, which stands on the basis of the functional dimension."
So the office of the Bishop is located "within a deep perspective of faith and not simply in a human, administrative or sociologically certain perspective".
