WARNING! There are some websites soliciting aid for the support of "Pope in exile aka Father KHOAT VAN TRAN". Do not be easily fooled. Do your diligent research before submitting to any claim, especially to the papacy. Demand proof of ordination and documents leading to the papacy before doing anything else. In this diabolical times, papacy in exile is not enough to be recognized as such.
There are doubts about "Father" KHOAT VAN TRAN. His claim to the papacy in exile is highly questionable. One example is due to his past and present involvement with the Viet Nam communist government in building a hospital under Keystone corporation. Due to lack of investors, he is trying to sell it incomplete for $70 million.
One questions why would a Catholic priest be involve in such business instead of caring for souls? Is his worldly business caused him to be absent in his "priestly" duties, thus the papacy in exile excuse comes in handy and conveniently explains his physical absence in the Catholic community?
Here are some pictures of him in exile, wheeling and dealing in Viet Nam. The site is in Vietnamese, please scroll down for pictures. The article talks about Dr. KHOAT VAN TRAN and the Keystone hospital project where he is the leader of. Compare these pictures with "Father" KHOAT VAN TRAN on google search.
Above all, demand proof of his ordination and ascent to papacy.
Please post any information anyone may have gathered about his ordination etc. I would be more than happy to check them out, especially on the Viet Nam Priest ordination records.
