Fatima Center Press Release
Regarding Recently Published Lies and Half-truths
The Fatima Center has noted with concern the alarmist, misleading and outright libelous propaganda regarding our upcoming conference, “Fatima: The Path to Peace!”. This propaganda is being generated by the leftwing extremist blogosphere and the widely discredited and ridiculed Southern Poverty Law Center, which has condemned so many people and groups for “hate” and non-existent “anti-Semitism” that it is running out of targets for its incessant fundraising, which depends heavily on fear-mongering. (See. e.g., the Weekly Standard's expose of the Center, "King of Fear-mongers," at http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/king-fearmongers_714573.html?nopager=1,)
To address these attacks by liberal extremists, The Fatima Center has issued the attached Official Statement on the true nature and purpose of the conference. Please note that the Catholic invitees have one thing in common: their public support for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which indeed is the only way to peace in the whole world.
The Center rejects attempts by liberal extremist commentators to attribute to the Center any and all things any of the invitees is alleged to have said, written, or done in his or her entire career. None of these red herrings are the subject of this conference, which seeks to bring together people of differing views for one common purpose: promoting Russia’s consecration to Mary.
Please consider the attached Statement as the Center’s true position, rather than the caricatures being circulated by extremist liberal propagandists.
