The sins of religions have simmered for centuries and now they are exploding for all the world to know. Globally, revelations of the pedophilic activities of Catholic priests are sending shock waves around the world. Some will say this is an attack on the Catholic Church, however it is telling it as it is and their track record leaves a large trail. Knowledge of this has been known in the U.S. for some years when men began to come out of the closet revealing their molestations by priests. Six U.S. Catholic dioceses have filed for bankruptcy due to lawsuits and some filed before cases went to court. One of the most recent cases is a lawsuit filed against the Newark, New Jersey diocese by a woman sexually assaulted by a priest, who was transferred to the Orlando, Florida diocese after the lawsuit was filed. The amount of the settlement has not been disclosed.
I honor these men for coming forward and perhaps it will bring to the attention of the world the perpetrations and suppression against the female sex. In medieval times, young girls who had no dowry were sent to a nunnery to become nuns. In some cases these young girls were assaulted by the older nuns in a sexual manner. In the last century from the 1930's into the 1990's the Magdalene Laundries in Ireland became known for the sexual abuses of children by nuns, priests, non-clerical, staff and helpers, which include physical and emotional abuse. The scandal rocked Ireland and the Laundries were closed in 1996. A movie has been made of this, and it really had no effect on the Catholic Church. It was business as usual.
Current news has Pope Benedict XVI shedding crocodile tears in Malta while meeting with men who have been sexually abused by priests. The pope claims that young children will be protected? By whom? The higher echelon of the Catholic Church dressed in their long skirts, will do little to stop the sexual despoiling of boys and girls. Yes, the Church is crumbling and their long history of hypocrisy is being revealed. The Church has attempted to hide the story of the female Pope Joan and also the revelations of Pope Paul II, 1464-1471 being a transvestite. The early popes married, had children and mistresses. It is time for revelations and the demise of a religion based on power.
The rock is crumbling and is now on shaky ground. The Catholic Church is based on lies, deceit and a "do as I say, not do as I do." During WWII, Pope Pius II aided and abetted the Nazis in their murders of Jews, but also Gypsies. It is known that in Croatia (Yugoslavia) that Franciscan priests took part in the killing of Gypsies, Jews and Serbs. The holocaust of the Jews is said to be 6 million and the holocaust of the Gypsies (Roma) to be 500,000. There is knowledge of the Inquisition doing horrible acts of the Church and this was a form of an inquisition. John Cornwell writes in his book "Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII" the following:"The popes of history used many tactics to eradicate Jews and Gypsies. The holocaust in Croatia is an example. The Vatican spawned it using the reasoning that the Jews killed Jesus. The Gypsies? They were considered inferior humans. It was the Church in medieval times that first made Jews wear yellow stars for identification. If one were to truly study the hidden history it would be devastating."
In recent years, the news has revealed preachers who kill their wives and recently is was discovered that one had murdered his wife and kept her in a freezer for ten years. Many of the media preachers' downfalls can be attributed to illicit affairs. From my observation, there is more emphasis placed on Satan or the Devil than there is on a God of Love. The Protestant history has a record for burning women as witches, placing them in stocks and the suppression of women. They are for the most part against abortion and suppress a woman's right to make a choice. Nothing is said about the men who impregnate the women. We have Christian vigilantism killing abortion clinic doctors, destroying abortion clinics and yet, find it all right to send our men and women off to war to be killed, maimed or traumatized for life.
