LaPierre is said to be part of Opus Dei cult, but, having trouble confirming. Anyone know?

I tried searching, but, it appears that he carefully avoids answering questions about his personal beliefs.

3. Opus Dei is a double super secret underworld organization

They don't publicize their membership list.

4. You may try contacting the educational fund to stop gun violence. The site meetthenra.org is run

by them. On it they have the leader profiles where they monitor their facebook, twitter and other info. They have a link that says know something we don't? It also says you can ask questions there. Give them what info you have and see if they can take it from there. Just a thought

5. The Catholic church owns most of Berreta arms

The Vatican Bank is the main shareholder of the largest arms industry in the World

Perhaps few people know that Pietro Beretta arms factory Ltd. (the largest arms industry in the world) and is controlled by the Holding SpA Beretta and the majority shareholder of the Beretta Holding SpA after Gussalli Ugo Beretta, is the IOR (Institute for Works of Religion ) private institution founded in 1942 by Pope Pius XII and headquartered in Vatican City.

6. Whoa...had not heard of that. Opus Dei was shunned by Pope John Paul and now openly embraced by

the fascist Benedict. Didn't Benedict seek to deify the founder of Opus Dei?

11. "Shunned" by John Paul? By no means.

It really came into its under John Paul II. It was he, not Benedict that canonized its founder. It's not as if Benedict represents a departure from John Paul's policies; he was JP's guy.

13. Are you sure Benedict wasn't manipulating the elderly JP in his last decade?

Like the way Poppy Bush pulled most of his illegal covert missions by manipulating Reagan.

9. pietri is a private family company & has been since it was founded 500 years ago. doesn't have

 

'shareholders'.

Today, the company is owned and is run by Ugo Gussalli Beretta (a direct descendant of Bartolomeo) and his sons, Franco and Pietro. (The traditional father-to-son Beretta dynasty was interrupted when Ugo Gussalli Beretta assumed the firm's control; uncles Carlo and Giuseppe Beretta were childless; Carlo adopted Ugo, son of sister Giuseppina Gussalli, and named him a Beretta.)

since private companies' information is *private,* (i.e. they don't have to report it publicly), not sure where the information about the vatican comes from.

and according to this, lockheed martin is the largest arms producer/military company in the world.

http://www.sipri.org/research/armaments/production/Top100

also, if you mean just 'gun' companies, i think we have no idea who the world's largest is, because so many of the gun companies are actually held by larger financial entities, e.g. 'freedom group' owns all of these:


Advanced Armament Corporation
Barnes Bullets
Bushmaster Firearms International
Dakota Arms
DPMS Panther Arms
H & R Firearms
Marlin
Mountain Khakis
Para USA
Parker Gunmakers
Remington Arms
Remington Military
Remington LE
Remington PMPD
TAPCO

16. Weren't most Presidents, including the current one, members of a cult?

I mean, I heard that this cult believes that an invisible man had a son by a virgin Palestinian woman and that the son was sent to earth to be nailed to a couple pieces of wood by Italian soldiers in order to compensate for the sins of mankind. Also, there's this weird fixation with dunking people in water.
