Boston and the Catholic troubles " Sex, shame and the Catholic Church"  was Newsweek"s cover story for March 4th, 2002, subtitled "and new soul-searching across America."  Hopefully, Roman Catholic teaching on virginity and celibacy would have been exposed and discussed rather than simply a quoting some facts and figures, and who says what, with no reference to the official stand of the Roman Catholic Church. Since what has happened is of a most serious nature, it would be in order that some reference be made to the teaching of the Lord Christ Jesus on the abuse of children. The pastoral teaching of the Apostle Paul regarding marriage and ministry ought also to be brought to bear on the issue.Read more ...

Pope John Paul II's plan to name Roman Catholicism's first Indian saint has opened divisions in this complex mosaic of a country where Indian and European traditions remain half-reconciled. The debate over 16th century Indian Juan Diego touches on delicate issues of ethnicity, faith, foreign meddling and respect for Indians, and threatens one of the few things that unifies Mexico: national symbols.

As Pope Francis arrives in the USA, the Vatican characteristically expects the media, the Congress, and the public to simply ignore the fact that when Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Francis staunchly refused to meet with the children sexually victimized by his priests and nuns and with their families. His pedophile sex criminal clergy were protected as the defenseless little children were raped and he refused to even meet them or their parents. So the College of Cardinals in a convocation that included multiple protectors and de facto enablers of baby raping sexual deviants frocked in their vestments, habits, and cassocks, including Los Angeles Cardinal Mahony and Boston Cardinal Law, elected Bergoglio pope and said he is 'the 'Vicar of Christ'. But didn't Christ say that “It is better to have a millstone tied to one's neck and be cast into the sea rather than harm a helpless little child”? Now this same Francis is coming to the land of Mahony with his lies and baloney, and of Law, who rather proved himself to be utterly law-less. These reprobates who shielded dangerous sexual deviates at the expense of the children whose molestation and sexual and homosexual violation these servants of Lucifer helped facilitate are among those who helped elect Bergoglio, so why wouldn't George (Jorge) Bergoglio cum Pope Francis come to the USA? How can such a disgusting pretender misrepresent himself as the vicar of a Christ whose very Words he nullifies and whose example he shuns in favor of a public relations motivated charade packaged in pseudo sanctimonious pomposity of the very same brand Jesus flagrantly condemned in the Gospel of St. Matthew chapter 23?

How She Harmed Her Helpers As Well As Those They 'Helped' by Susan Shields
The following article is from Free Inquiry magazine,,   Volume 18, Number 1 Some years after I became a Catholic, I joined Mother Teresa's congregation, the Missionaries of Charity. I was one of her sisters for nine and a half years, living in the Bronx, Rome, and San Francisco, until I became disillusioned and left in May 1989. As I reentered the world, I slowly began to unravel the tangle of lies in which I had lived. I wondered how I could have believed them for so long.Read more ...
 
It never fails to amaze me when I come across some aberrational point of theology or cultic view of Christ or God. "How could they not see this, or how could they overlook the error in that point?" But when it comes to the ever-changing religious fables springing up in the Catholic Church, one would have to physically put on spiritual blinders not to see through their obvious errors. Let's look at one of their latest logical blunders.Read more ...

Preface
Joseph Radzinger, now Pope Benenedict XVI, has given his old job as enforcer and head of ‚  dogma for the Roman Catholic church (formerly known as the 'Pontifical Office For The Inquisition') to an American Arch Bishop who protected the identity of child molesting Roman Catholic clergy. ‚  When Radzinger held the post before becoming pope he reissued the 'Solicitaccionnes Criminale' ‚  directive instructing Bishops to ‚  effectively obstruct justice in the protection of the identity of such pedophiles at the expense of the child victims.
 
I am finding it quite disturbing of the news which states that the Queen is allowing for the Pope to stay at Buckingham Palace on his visit to the United Kingdom next year. It is equally disturbing that the Queen and members of the Royal Family have an affinity to Roman Catholicism. If so, then expect the Judgement of God to deepen upon this nation of ours. What with the shenanigans that are taking place within ,  the Church of England, the charismatics doing their own thing in the sight of God, and the modern western christian church in disarray, judgement is surely taking place in the House of the Lord. And upon the nation!

By Alan Franklin 13/02/2013 Now that the present Pope is to quit, attention is focused on his successor, especially in the light of the alleged prophecies of a man known as "Saint" Malachy, which tells you all you need to know. Be wary lest you be sucked in by this claptrap. I put as much value on it as on the alleged "Mayan Prophecies." When I first heard those my comment was: "Who cares what they predicted? They knew so much about the future that they are extinct"¦" The same goes for all those who claim to be seers. I have lived among such people, heard their philosophy, attended s ƒ ©ances and so on. The one thing you can be certain of is: they do NOT know the future.Read more ...

December 2010 There is something strangely missing in the debate presently raging about the Murphy Report. We hear legal debates based on Civic Law, Canon Law and Moral Law. But no one is referring,   back to the Law of God or the simple words of Jesus himself in trying to put a context on all of this repulsive abuse that children have suffered at the hands of these so called Christian leaders.Read more ...

There is a unity that glorifies God. There is a diversity that glorifies God. There is a division that glorifies God. God is clear on what unity, diversity and division is acceptable to Him and brings glory to Him. The Bible reveals that in the Last Days there will be a one world religion. This religion of unity is referred to as Mystery Babylon and has its roots at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11). This false religious system will ultimately be brought down by God (cf. Revelation 17). The unity of Mystery Babylon is not glorifying to God but opposes God with all deception and rebellion against Him and His word. This false unity is on the rise today. That is a unity true Christians do not want to be a part of. Having a Biblical God ordained understanding of how unity, diversity and division relate to one another is critical to glorifying God by both what we participate in and what we separate from.

The Knights of Malta are a Roman Catholic organization with quasi mystical practices used mainly to advance Vatican influences in the political sphere. It is more exclusive than the Roman Catholic 'Knights of Columbus' and is rooted somewhat in the ethos of the barbaric Knights Templar of the Crusader Period (so too are St. John's Ambulance service, but they are more secular and benign).

by James Jacob Prasch In the aftermath of the Vatican 'Rat Line' when the Roman Catholic  church hid Nazi war criminals in convents and monasteries  and smuggled them away from justice into hiding in pro fascist Peronist  countries in South America (the Vatican ardently refuses to open these records from  its secret archives) , Pope John XXIII promoted Jesuit theologian    Michael Schmaus to cardinal calling Schmaus "The Theologian of Munich".

It was Schmaus who authored the treatise ' Empire and State' furnishing the Roman Catholic  theological basis for Roman Catholic support of  Hitler & The Nazi Party rising to power in coalition with  the Zentrum, the Roman Catholic party of Bavaria headed by privy chamberlain to the pope Hans Von Pappen.

Jan 23, 2014   The history of treachery, immorality, corruption and murder that has defined the Roman papacy for centuries has ranged from the Bourga and Medici popes of the Middle Ages to the Ambrosiano bank scandals of the present age. As the 'Criminale Solicitacciones' instruction first issued by Pope John xxxiii and reissued by Cardinal Radzinger cum Pope Benedict under the direction of Carol Wojtyla cum John Paul II shows the Vatican instructed the cover up of pedophile sex criminal priests & nuns at the expense of not protecting the Roman Catholic children whose lives were being destroyed by their sex pervert clergy. Indeed the document indicates, even reveals, that the Vatican was aware that their priests and nuns were having sex with animals. The American Bush administration pushed to have the civil prosecution stopped by the Justice Department and courts of Ratzinger for political reasons to do with diplomacy without reference to the legal merits of the case.Read more ...
