Before noting in this article what Agenzia Fides has reported, we strongly note in accordance with South African law, that whatever the false and unrealistic beliefs of the protesters, or others, there is no witchcraft involved in the 'Red' protests, only foolish people who may illogically believe in witchcraft. We also warn our South African viewers, of the heavy prison sentence often involved in any accusation of witchcraft.
According to the source of Agenzia Fides, a Vatican news service, the spilling of pools of human blood on the palace and Prime Minister's home in Thailand by the "red" protesters, is a statement by the protesters, in which they display their unfounded view that they are cursing the administration in Thailand, which has refused to bow to the pressure of the "red" movement. Agenzia Fides' source, who they claim is an expert in Thai culture, claims that the protesters have links to the former communists, and what the source then portrays as a desperate and ruthless former Prime Minister in exile.
According to Agenzia Fides, some of the prominent Buddhists in Thailand are concerned to remove what they superstitiously believe to be a curse on the government, by the "red" movement, in accordance with Thai superstition. Fides claims that the protesters are mostly rural, and were being paid an allowance to stay, an allowance which is running out. Their source claim that the desperate terrorism and showmanship of the use of the blood of human beings, seen as sacred in Thai culture, is a sign of a movement dying out, but desperate to retain their credibility, through acts which allegedly inspire shock in Thai culture. Their source also claims that there does not seem to be any sign that the military will support the "Red" protesters. Their source claims that there are rumours that the former Prime Minister wants to displace the Thai Monarchy, to become "president" of Thailand.
The source seems to allege that both Catholics and Buddhists oppose the "Red" protests and desire a return to peace and order. They claim that the use of blood has also alienated much of the general population of Thailand from the protesters.
The article by Fides, is important, as they are the official news service of the Pontifical Missionary Society, themselves a powerful voice.
Before ending our article, we strongly note in accordance with South African law, that whatever the false and unrealistic beliefs of the protesters, or others, there is no witchcraft involved in the 'Red' protests, only foolish people who may illogically believe in witchcraft. We also warn our South African viewers, of the heavy prison sentence often involved in any accusation of witchcraft.
