IN YET ANOTHER CASE OF BAD TIMING…THE POPE AGAIN…

Sometimes I have to wonder about the colossally bad timing and, well, just all round bad taste the Vatican in general and Pope Benedict XVI in particular seems to be showing. As the USA and much of the world was absorbing the senseless slaughter of young children at Sandy Hook, the Pope was releasing statements about how gay people are threats to world peace and justice, and now, as recently as a Christmas message last year, the pope seems to be saying in certain contexts child pornography is ok:

Pope’s child porn ‘normal’ claim sparks outrage among victims Read more: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/popersquos-child-porn-normal-claim-sparks-outrage-among-victims-15035449.html#ixzz2FoqKbbaG

Now I suspect the readership here is about as diverse as any site on the internet; I know we have atheists, agnostics, Protestants, Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Eastern Orthodox, Buddhists, Hindus… and probably an equal spread of just about every age group, sexual orientation, race, cultural background, and economic demographic you can think of. And I’ll bet that by far and away most of us here would think that to rob a child of his or her innocence and to abuse them in this or any fashion is just about the most barbarous act one can think of. We wouldn’t need to read books of ethical philosophy, canon law, moral philosophy, or to run and consult a holy book. Our response would be visceral, immediate, from the heart.

So I have to wonder folks, when I sit and read words like these:

“In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society.

“In the 1970s, paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope said.

“It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than’ and a ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

The Pope said abuse revelations in 2010 reached “an unimaginable dimension” which brought “humiliation” on the Church.

After shaking off my shock and bewilderment, I had to wonder, is he more concerned about the loss of innocence in our society and culture, about the victims themselves? or more concerned with his institution’s reputation? Why all the diplomatic tiptoeing?
What disturbs me here is, you’ll recall, that I also blogged recently about the Vatican’s call not only for a new Central Bank of the World, but for a “moral authority” that the coming spic-and-span chrome and glass global government can turn to when it wishes to “consult” on “morality,” and there was little doubt about whom the papacy was thinking of…
…and we’ve made it through the great filter…?
See you on the flip side.

  1. A guess the question society has to ask itself: does it want have a religious society ruled by a hypocritical priest class or would it be preferable to have an irreligious society like we have in America today where the majority of the population turns themselves into beasts looking at porn and violence all day and then not even having the good sense to shield their children from this degradation. Some even going so far as to not even making their children leave the room when they dull their senses with depraved hollywood swill.

    Its a conundrum for sure. An hypocritical “moral authority” telling one what to do and not to do or an immoral authority making accessible all the human vices?

    • That’s it? A or B, that’s all we have? You’ve been living under a two party system too long, haha.

    • The ruling class finds it useful to degrade the people morally, thus depriving them of a use of their higher faculties.

      Catholic intellectual E. Michael Jones writes about this correlation in his book Libido Dominandi, meaning political domination & control through sexual “liberation,” meaning debauchery & degradation of course. Indeed, a man enslaved to his base passions can never be free, & in his turn becomes a contributor to a poison stream. This state of affairs also gifts the State license to act arbitrarily & immorally, ostensibly with impunity.

      Zoologist & insect taxidermist Alfred Kinsey, financed by the Rockefeller Foundation, was a useful “scientific” tool in this regard, providing a scientific pretext for a circumvention of American constitutionally based common law, & its replacement with the machinations of a new “scientifically” based law, along with an adulteration & revision of both American law & Justice as it applied to sex crimes like rape & the Model Penal Code.

      The foregoing history is distilled in the works of Kinsey sleuth Dr. Judith Reisman, especially in her extensive & well documented Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences; The Red Queen and The Grand Scheme.

      Basically, Kinsey along with his co-workers & financial benefactors helped turn American science & law up-side-down, which is increasingly reflected & being felt today in the APA’s pathologizing of normalcy & normalization of pathology. Just as currency can be & has been directed as a weapon of piracy & expropriation, so too can human sexuality be weaponized & used as a tool of cultural disassembly & a destruction of freedom.

      • Another great analogy.
        Spot-on, in the weaponization of so many facets of society. It is hard, indeed, to be a member of such a society, without being affected by such weapons.
        Even though one knows; shielding oneself from such weapons is, at best, a test of inner strength.
        I’ve failed many times, but still will get back up off the canvas, to fight the good fight again.
        For me, it has become an individual revolution. I imagine, many like myself, fighting & fighting against the machine.

        When…
        the “spark” comes/the individuals will become one indivisible fist, of purpose, without remorse…

      • esoterically, Rosemary baby…in one scene the study of male sexuality book and female sexuality book lies in-between anton levy satanic bible.

        • I like this, in that, it hadden’t occurred to me. When she checks the sex of the baby?

    • Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll be watching her voting record and more to see whether she has been working overtime to ingratiate herself to Washington’s power brokers or if there’s a change in the wind.

  2. What I can’t reconcile is the Vatican’s stance on abortion versus the banksters goal of culling the population into a manageable 500 million? Would someone please explain this? If the Vatican works for the banksters or the Vatican is the banksters, why do they have two entirely incompatible population policies? And what about sex and birth control? The Vatican preaches less sex and the bankster controlled media won’t let us escape thoughts of sex? It doesn’t add up.

    I posit that the Vatican was set up by spiritual or political forces to combat the banksters millennia ago. Lets not forget Jesus flogging of the money changers in the temple story. These forces wanted to protect mankind from the terror of the blood rituals which so fueled the banksters that a man named Jesus or some men who invented Jesus cooked up a ritual which was to make defunct the blood rituals of the jewish yahwehists. Moreover, the infinitely compassionate Jesus was to replace the wrathful and dysfunctional yahweh as a source of worship.

    I would argue that the Vatican did a commendable job protecting Europe from the scourge of blood rituals and even made a valiant effort at limiting slavery and usury. What transgressions the Vatican has been guilty of over the last two thousand years has all the fingerprints of bankster infiltration. And this I believe is where we stand today. An unsuccessful bankster attempt to usurp Vatican power. And the Vatican has reclaimed its mission to defend humanity by combatting the banksters in their chief source of power in our modern age– the ritualistic murder of unborn children.

    • I would also add another part of the original mission of the Roman Catholic Church would be to preserve the ancient Roman religion with its solar cult and the cult of the Divine Mother along with the preservation of the ceremony of the Mass for a time in the future when the banksters were no longer a threat to humanity and their yahweh deity would be trashed by historians and thrown on the scrap heap. Eventually the Soma ceremony would even be restored to its rightful place in the Mass— replacing the no longer needed sacrificial consumption of the symbolic body of Christ.

      • remember Martin Luther?.

        as for JC, he came out of the cave, and said to the slaves who condemned him to death on the solar cross, the true source of wealth, …..where i go you may not follow..

    • The Nazis too outlawed abortion & birth control measures for “certified” Aryans, but not for racial “inferiors” & peoples of occupied nations. The Nazis also outlawed homosexuality among Aryans, due to its detrimental effect on reproduction & hindrence to a replacement of wartime population losses.

      So, abortion & birth control as well as laws against homosexuality, were selectively applied, & varied in their applicationb dramatically relevant to which stage of the Nazi regime is being studied & to whom these laws were being addressed.

      Whereas the Nazis showed little concern about homoerotic conduct among “inferior” peoples – believing homosexism would assist in their decline, homosexual conduct was declared a capital crime for Aryans – a kind of negative race crime, this paradoxically, when it was militant gay pederasts who were disproportionately responsible for propelling Hitler into the Chancellor’s Office, & placing the Nazi Regime into power in the first place.

      An added dimension to Rome’s concern about abortion is, whereas a mother has already been baptized, & thereby “saved,” a baby has not been baptized & therefore must be — this, & likely the correlation of males with a dominant masculine image of the Roman god image. In both Romanism & Islam, female sexuality is looked upon as evil, rather than complimentary to men. Indeed, the eros in ancient Greece was between man & boy, thus, the word pederast from the Greek “paiderastia” meaning a love of boys.

      So basically, the dogma of Romanism, sets the fires for which she then purports to provide the remedy. It’s the place where “sin” meets opportunity.

  3. “We give our power away to the tyrants by our willingness to believe what they say instead of what we observe.” [Robert Cinque]

    “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas
    he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.” [Thomas Jefferson]

    Indeed, money or “currency,” is an expression of our moral & ethical will & conscience as human beings & moral agents. So express or direct your currency wisely. We must not permit, insofar as humanly possible, our currency to be infiltrated, adulterated, co-opted or hyjacked by nefarious purposes. This is why the power of currency & monetary policy must be kept a closely guarded trust of the people through their elected representatives & trustees. The Agency known as the “Federal” Reserve is a Currency Pirate, not only working against the interests of the people, but actually through the alchemy of facsimile money, perverting, misdirecting & turning what should be the moral currency & conscience of the people, against the very people who produce it. Through such an inverted & covert mechanism, the people finance & offer implied consent by their silence, for their own spiritual bondage, physical enslavement & economic servitude.

  4. Brendan and Matt are both correct in that The Bible is a blend of fiction and fact. The challenge is, like with so many things in life, to separate the wheat from the chaff. Biblical modification beginning at least by 325AD with the First Council of Nicea became the first of several canonical revisions. Deliberate revisionism, such as eliminating reincarnation from the doctrine, are clear signs of an agenda at play whereas language discrepancies can in fairness be dismissed as innocent mistakes. The accuracy controversy is further amplified by the Nag Hammadi Texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

    I have come to rely on the research of Rocco Errico who some 50 years ago became an understudy of George Lamsa, an Aramaic scholar (The Lamsa Translation published by Harper-Collins). Their work revealed the shocking news that the original language of Abraham (“Abraham was an Aramian”), Isaac and Jacob was Aramaic, not Hebrew. Since the Hebrew language grew out of Aramaic it is logical that as language evolved so did the context and meaning of original scriptures.

    I realize there are no shortages of both well-meaning people and demagogues eager to impart their biblical interpretations as we simultaneously struggle with the question of what might be connotative versus denotative in those myriad passages.

    Along with archaeological evidence I deem this essential reading for those serious about the historical basis as well as the message of Jesus

    • TS, I share your good opinion of Rocco Errico. He is a wonderful speaker as well as an excellent scholar! I esp. remember a talk he gave about Jesus’s parables and how misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misleading they are. Of the many examples he gave, I remember most clearly the one about ‘turning the other cheek’. In Aramaic, it does not mean allowing oneself to be struck on the other cheek but simply to turn aside, to look the other way, that is to forgive or dismiss the offense. Quite a different interpretation, isn’t it?
      At his website there is a translation of the Lord’s Prayer and an audio of it in Aramaic: http://www.noohra.com/Index.pl?mm/Lords_Prayer .
      I am not religious [brought up surrounded by southern Baptists] for I recognized early on the hypocrisy between sermon and deed and wondered why anyone would want to follow a dysfunctional ‘god’, which is why I appreciate Dr. Farrell’s Yahweh book. As for this discussion I’m reminded of this quote of Nietzsche: “After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands.”

      • Margaret thanks for the link. It’s amazing how profoundly different The Lord’s Prayer and The Bible overall read when the original cultural context and vernacular are taken into consideration, isn’t it? For example the word father is Aramaic meant beloved and could be used between people in close relationships as an expression of endearment. Our father who art in heaven instead becomes Our beloved who art in heaven.

        During an interview Rocco spoke of Tolstoy’s book, The Kingdom of God is Within You. I haven’t read the book yet though I think Tolstoy was at odds with both the Czarist state and the church. Tolstoy advocated non resistance as a means to counter the oppressive institutions that presumed to be the authority over the populations lives. Interesting that Tolstoy’s beliefs played a prominent role in the formations of Ghandi’s passive resistance. The greater theme though is that as the title of the book implies we don’t need a liaison between ourselves and “God”. And likewise that same condition of personal sovereignty applies to the relationship between the individual and the state.

        • Seems Ghandi wasn’t entirely passive. The following quotes can be attributed to him…

          Gandhi continues – “When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away & seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could & wanted to use, & defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.” Gandhi also explains that someone who cannot use violence to defend themselves or their family is a helpless coward & a “worm.”

          In Between Cowardice And Violence Gandhi writes – “He who cannot protect himself or his nearest & dearest or their honor by non-violently facing death may & ought to do so by violently dealing with the oppressor. He who can do neither of the two is a burden. He has no business to be the head of a family. He must either hide himself, or must rest content to live for ever in helplessness & be prepared to crawl like a worm at the bidding of a bully.”

          Further Ghandi writes, “[When violence] is offered in self-defense or for the defense of the defenseless, it is an act of bravery far better than cowardly submission – not knowing the stuff of which nonviolence is made, many have honestly believed that running away from danger every time was a virtue compared to offering resistance, especially when it was fraught with danger to one’s life. As a teacher of nonviolence I must, so far as it is possible for me, guard against such an unmanly belief.”

        • This belongs at the head of my first posting about Ghandi… “I do believe that where there is only a choice between cowardice & violence I would advise violence,” Gandhi wrote in his famous work, “Doctrine of the Sword” (Of Just Defense).

    • I always felt that if you ripped out the old testament and replaced it with Pantajali’s Yoga Sutras and then pared down to new testament to just the Sermon on the Mount, you would have a pretty good holy book.

  5. This “moral authority” which seems to be indoctrinated into the World Government idea will not apply to those in power and who are running the show.

    When you have enforcement of morality, or some moral code derived from a work of fiction such as the Bible, you have to wonder (those of us who are free thinkers) who the rules will apply to – certainly not those who make the rules and who would enforce them.

    When you have anything organised with elements formed on some morality (whether religious or otherwise) you see nothing but the stain of hypocrisy. Who better an example of said hypocrisy is none other than the very church wishing to enforce it. with their rhetoric.

    I almost shed a tear for the Pope at his disdain regarding not the victims but the inconvenience the stain of paedophilia has brought to the Church. Is it the fact it is happening or that the public found out? I am hedging towards the latter. If this is the best the Vatican PR machine can come up with then it is truly a sad state of affairs – for them of course. I am glad all this garbage is coming out into the wash – for the victims and their families sakes.

    In Australia our Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced a Royal Commission into sexual abuses by Catholic Priests – of course only after much public pressure by the media. I believe Canada also did a similar thing. This may take a few years to come to some conclusion – as most of these large enquiries do – but it will be closure for the victims and their families.

    • Actually the royal Commission covers secular society as well. Most child sexual assault charges in Australia are not religiously based.

      Acting Minister for Families, Brendan O’Connor, told the ABC’s 7.30 program the Government wants to ensure a broad range of institutions be examined.

      “The child sex abuse offences, and indeed allegations of child sex abuse, are not confined to one church,” he said.

      “They’re not confined to one religious organisation.

      “Unfortunately, offences against children have occurred to children in state care and indeed, have occurred to children under the care in other religious organisations and of course also not-for-profit organisations.

      “It would be very unfair and quite cruel to confine the examination – or the commission’s examination to one body.”

      He added the royal commission decision was “a very significant one”.

      “This Government is responding I think to the need to ensure that voices are heard by the victims and their families, that claims are properly investigated,” he said.

      “This Government wants to provide this forum, this process, so that victims get an opportunity to tell their story, to have their story heard.

      “Beyond that I think as a government we want to ensure through this vehicle, the royal commission, that institutions that are caring for children are responding properly and adequately to those allegations that have been made.

      “Now what we know to date is that has not been the case. We need to do better.”

      The Bible isn’t a work of fiction Brendan, it holds a great deal of historical/archaeological fact regardless of whether you hold to it as been divinely inspired or not :)

      • If there is an organized effort between media, the courts, and politicians to attack an institution, nation, or business then that is a sure sign that the institution, nation or business has run afoul of the banksters, is a threat to the banksters or has something that the banksters want which is most often time loot. I can’t believe how many people buy this pedophilia scandal hook line and sinker. Yes, pedophelia exists in the RC Church and yes the RC Church has been infiltrated by the satanic cabal. (That is a whole other topic on how they infiltrated the seminaries decades ago and turned them into demon portals). But the pedophile scandal was clearly orchestrated in advance, blown out of proportion and allowed to run rip shod over the legal rights of the Church and destroy its credibility.

        I saw with my own eyes a degenerate drug addict make the flimsiest of claims of sexual abuse with the help of his non-christian lawyer and several non-christian owned media outlets and walk away with a million dollars extorted from a small diocese too petrified to go to court in such a hostile environment. When that pedophile scandal was at its height, every shyster lawyer in America was cruising the Irish bars of America looking for down and out derelicts who used to be altar boys and who would be willing to lie for a big chunk of money to be split with the lawyers.

        Just the fact that the Catholic Church has been relentlessly attacked by the media is all the clue you need. Rule number one– if the main stream media says something is bad, it is probably good. Surely, no one in this forum needs to be taught that if the US media or schools tell you one thing, than flip that on its head and you are probably closer to the truth.

        • Interesting counterpoint FC. Indeed the the church’s protective media cover has disappeared and I am reminded of the saying that in politics there are no chance occurences. It does make a case for who is trying to coerce who.

  6. What exactly are you suggesting!!!

    This pope is condemning the normalization of pornography and violence (duh!), which he has condemned repeatedly. The pope has never made excuses for the pedophilia scandals that rocked the Church and has repeatedly addressed the issue publicly in a vigorous manner. No other church has done as much to address this issue than the Catholic Church–and contrary to what you may read in the Catholic bashing media (which this website has joined), there are pedophilia scandals in every major church–and in society in general. Not a day goes by that a child is not abused in the New Your City Public School System. The Orthodox Hierarchy is still in denial about its own sexual abuse scanda (which data show is now as great as it was in the Catholic Church at the height of the abuse scandal–and there are numerous victim’s web sites devoted exclusively to the Orthodox Chuch with names and pictures of abusers (just google Orthodox child abuse and you’ll see it all), but very little acknowledgement from the powers in the Orthodox Hierarchy or the New York Times. A Study done by an independent Danish firm reports that the problem is even worse in Protestant churches. Vatican bashing is a sport in the mainstream media, and on this site too unfortunately. The question is why do certain outlets choose to beat the Vatican with any stick handy–and not go after worse abusers.

    Benedict spoke with poignancy and sorrow right after the massacre in Newtown in his Christmas week Angelus address and his speech is available on youtube. Rarely are positive stories about the Vatican reported in the mainstream media–but there many other outlets–and one should consult them also if acting in good faith. By the way, Benedict gives a speech just about every day–speeches that have important spiritual messages and theological insight. Check them out in good faith and you might reconsider your view of Ratzinger. There is great scholarship, spiritual insight and profundity in his writings. After all, he is considered one of the top theologians of the 20th century. He does not deserve such a crass and unsubstantiated attack There is no excuse for taking sentences out of context and twisting them into meaning something they don’t. I expect to see that in the mainstream media–not here! Read his works–you might even find that you agree with much of what he has to say. Jurgan Habermas, and avowed atheist, has been very impressed by Ratzingers writings and believes his is giving the world an important message. But he approached Ratzinger in good faith–which is more than this site can claim.

    • On the contrary…I AM approaching in good faith by reminding people of what this INSTITUTION’A CLAIMS are. We would all do well to remember them, and to remember what that institution has done in the name of those claims, for it is the DOCTRINE that has not changed. That means that given the opportunity, that doctrine could lead to all the old abuses. That doctrine means, in my opinion, and fundamentally, that that institution, and whoever holds it, approaches the world in BAD faith by putting on airs of tolerance and gentility, when its core doctrine, the one which led to the abuses in the first place, remains unchanged. If Ratzinger would address and fundamentally alter that doctrine, then I’d be more inclined to hear his other words. But he won’t, and it is that doctrine and its miserable history that will forever make a mockery of all its fine words. To me, that is the REAL bad faith, because the content of that faith, this “infallible” institution with all its claims to extraordinary magisterium, remains in that core doctrine unchanged. We would do well to remember that of all the window dressing done at Vatican Two, the one window that was NOT dressed and that was phrased in all the old assertions of supreme authority was the papacy itself. I submit to you that by requiring priests first to take the oath against modernism prior to Vatican Two, and then gutting the Roman liturgy for the Novus ordo missae, that that institution dealt in supremely bad faith with its own clergy and faithful…and Ratzinger was there as a young peritus to help with that work. It was a revolution in all respects, save concerning the papal authority itself. To me, this is the ultimate bad faith, and cynicism. They dress up their words, they put on new airs of repentance and tolerance, they even evince “regret” for exercising “coercion” in cases like Giordano Bruno, yet the cause of that coercion, the claims of the institution itself that led to the abuses, go unchanged. The idea that theocracies of any sort could emerge in the modern world were once scoffed at but the dangers have returned, and I will continue to warn of them. So Gregory, you and I will agree to disagree. This institution is not to be trusted. Not by a long shot.

      • And by the way, since you mentioned them, I experienced first hand some of the abuses of authority in the Orthodox Church in America connected to its recent financial scandals, and that appear to be connected to the abuse scandals to which you refer(and according to my best information, they are connected). Long before the scandal broke publicly after 2000, I attempted to bring my concerns about them to the attention of those I thought might be able to do something about it. As it turned out (and as I was to learn much later) they were involved in them. They then proceeded to ruin my life in ways you cannot imagine and that it as taken over a decade to fix. But the good thing was, I LEFT the Orthodox church because of all of this over 12 years ago. The corporate-person culture there was just as toxic – as you rightly point out – as that in the Roman Church…

    • Greg,
      If I might suggest, I think what Dr. Farrell’s problem is, is that he is not seen the moral outrage coming from this institution in correcting the problem and expressing itself, but rather relocating it at times, passing it along, or covering it up.

      These are children we are talking about and there should be explicit and undeniable outrage first expressed to the world, and then seek some scholarly surveys of how this could happen, later. The Papal power is far reaching and extensive in scope, I would like to see the utter outrage where this was or maybe expressed.

  7. Received the following today. There’s some Synchronicity happening here.

    The Unhived Mind…

    “Firstly you must all realize that the Holy See and Vatican are different
    to the pagan religion of Catholicism (universal). Whilst you see
    Catholicisms voice not being heard these days you could easily and
    wrongly believe that the Pope has lost his Temporal Power over the
    World. The Pope controls the World and the financial system.

    The financial system is controlled through the Papal Bull Unam Sanctam
    of 1302. The same goes for everything you can image. Of course over time
    we have seen further Papal Bulls and Trusts created to further aid this
    enslavement of man. For example the Romanus Pontifex Papal Bull of 1455,
    Aeterni Regis Papal Bull from 1481 and the Convocation of 1537. Not to
    mention going back to 1540 with the Cestui Que Vie Act and the last
    version by 1666. This my friends is how to Pope dominates this World
    through the Crown land, Commonwealth Crown and finally the
    Ecclesiastical See Crown.

    The financial system is dominated at the top by the Pope�s, Order of
    Malta (greatest merchants on Earth) commanding all recognized Knights of
    Malta orders through The Alliance of the Orders of St John of Jersualem
    based in the Swiss Canton of Geneva governed by Papist, Prince Vittorio
    Emanuele IV of the House of Savoy. King Juan Carlos of Spain, the
    Protector of the Holy Sites of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem has
    commanded the Commonwealth Crown since 1975. Along with the Order of
    Malta (given all the Knights Templar powers through the Ad Providem
    Papal Bull of 1312) you have the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of
    St George, Opus Dei and the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of
    Jerusalem all mastering the financial World through the likes of proxies
    such as The Worshipful Company of Mercers and the City of London
    Corporation along with its TheCityUK and Middle East Association.

    Who helped to unregulate this financial system? Jesuit trained William
    Clinton who was mastered by Georgetown �military fortress� University as
    are all the proxy puppets of the Holy See. Bill Clinton and Robert Rubin
    helped remove the ban on derivatives trading. This allowed a massive
    illusionary debt to build up which could be used to enslave nations into
    the Pope�s World Government (Temporal Power) known to many as the New
    World Order. You see folks, the Roman Empire never died, it just went
    low and used the other empires as its proxy until now. Please study the
    Congress of Vienna 1814/15 and the Secret Treaty of Verona 1822.

    The proxy British Empire continues today through the pirates of the
    Livery and New Jerusalem known as the City of London sovereign state
    made up of one square mile. The British Empire�s proxy U.S Empire
    wrongly termed American Empire (America ceased to exist from 1861
    onwards and especially from 1868/71) is the other empire. The U.S Empire
    is the sovereign state of Washington D.C. mastered by Georgetown
    University. Washington D.C. sits on Roman Catholic soil that was owned
    by the Pope and Carroll families and which was known in 1663 property
    records as Rome. The Carroll family founded Georgetown University. Now
    does it all make sense why Washington D.C is a carbon copy of old Rome?
    So you now have the three powerhouses which are all sovereign states,
    Washington D.C., City of London and of course Vatican City which
    strangely has an incredibly low sexual consent age.

    So welcome to the banking system based on the Uniform Commercial Code
    which is mastered above by the Maritime Admiralty Law system governing
    all business Worldwide and based on Vatican Canon Law after the Romans
    perfected the old Phoenician law of the high sea trade system.

    The Pope is a devious Anti-Christos who must be exposed before his plan
    for total enslavement takes place real soon. The end goal is the
    destruction of Catholicism and even the Vatican so they can be rehoused
    in their Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem which is East Jerusalem. Grandmaster
    Giuliano di Bernardo the Freemason behind the Da Vinci Code movies will
    be mastering the building of the Pope�s King Solomon�s Temple III. From
    here the same masters but with different names, titles, garments and
    even religion (one-World pagan religion) will rule over the entire Earth
    recreating Babylon but on a global scale.

    The Financial World will be dominated eventually through Dubai and Hong
    Kong rather than London and New York. The political power will be ruled
    by Iraq. All as this Solar Cult (Zoroastrian, Mithra) continuum moves
    from West to East to meet the rising Horus Sun. The final Pope of that
    time will finally become Horus instead of the continual Osiris God of
    now. The Pope (Sun door) and his cardinals (hinges) will be no more as
    the Pope becomes the risen Sun and a new religion is born into the Age
    of Aquarius as the old Age of Pisces is gone along with all traces of
    Christianity and the non-Christian Catholicism.

    • Greetings Elm,

      You are aware that the jesuits, Cathol ic (ic latin for indoctrinated) had direct access into the forbidden city, and into China after the peoples that lived under communism, had a peoples revolution and restored communism.
      They even had there own quarters in the forbidden city since its completion in 1420. Shortly there after a eunich admiral set off with a fleet of 300 ships, aptly named star fleet too document all the civilizations of the world.

      Also you didnt mention the forest charter, the one that predates magna carta…a double cross for the soon to become serfs.

      On a side note of sorcery, the movie 10,000 BC is about a pharoah ..merneptah, aka the great hunter, who conquered the Israelis and the people of the sea.
      Strangely the movie came out before the facts were published.
      The irony of the movie is the hunters became farmers after the cap stone was removed, right out of the conflict of Cain and Abel. Talk about programming of the great hunters serpant from blue eyed Lucy….1s and 0s. I almost fell of my chair when the lord god said take her outside and rip her apart.

  8. θρησκεία καθαρὰ καὶ ἀμίαντος παρὰ τῷ Θεῷ καὶ πατρὶ αὕτη ἐστίν, ἐπισκέπτεσθαι ὀρφανοὺς καὶ χήρας ἐν τῇ θλίψει αὐτῶν, ἄσπιλον ἑαυτὸν τηρεῖν ἀπὸ τοῦ κόσμου.

    • Translation:
      Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world (James 1:27)

  9. Defining anything will always mean that the definition will be incomplete. The more abstract the less accurate the definition. Worst possible word, therefore, to define: God.

    Organized religions are thus reducing God to whatever the organizers fancies. They make God, inexorably, in their own image.

    Organized religion is by essence corrupt.

  10. Talking about timing… Dr. Farrell, have you seen this interesting bit of news?

    “If a trip to Vatican is on your to do list, you’ll need plenty of cash for all the tickets, souvenirs and food. The world’s tiniest state has suspended all bank cards payments and emptied ATMs after it failed to comply with EU money laundering legislation”

    Soo Vatican ATMs are down, and who does handle these one might wonder?!?

    Luckily the article explains:

    “The ‘cash only’ rule came into force on January 1st and will be maintained until further notice after the Bank of Italy pulled its authorization of Deutsche Bank Italia, which has handled bank card transactions in the Vatican for 15 years.”

    Well, Deutsche Bank!

    Insert a mixture of “oh boy” and ponderings about fights between factions here.

    Why now? With all this crisis stuff going on and not say 10 years ago. Possible money laundering wouldn’t be something new…

    Full article via RT, but it can also be found on other news sites:

  11. I guess this verse never translated so well in Latin huh:

    Mark 10:13-16 “People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.”

    • Or any fear of God : Mark 9:42 “And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe in Me to fall, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were cast into the sea.”

      I guess the pedo rings are not too fearful of God……Malachi Martin….we miss you

  12. Humm mixed feelings here today. Personnaly I detest the Roman Catholic Church and whatever it stands for.

    The child molestation is a side issue in my opinion. THIS church perveys everything thats bad in our world, it has relentlessly told lies about us, our hidden history and tries to control us through fear.

    My hatred for this church knows no bounds, his holyness is nothing but a dictator of doctrine, and lets not forget who he was before he was pope.

    He was, before he was “chosen”, just another cardinal, and then whammo, he is the guy who can do no worng, and is infatable, like who’s kiddin who here.

    Just imagine what books and scrolls are hidden in the Vatican vaults, I’ll bet there is enough evidence down there to sink the whole lot of them, and their doctrine.

    It’s 2013, not 400 AD, so wake up people and “GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE BOOKS”

    • I wonder if Marcion’s lost writings are in the Vatican library? I propose a fund and letter writing campaign to send Dr. Farrell into the Vatican vault to do research.

  13. Afterall, the Pope’s just trying to say he’s a normal kind of guy at hard, …er, I mean heart.

    • There is that infamous child-pornography-ring that’s infiltrated the inner power circles. That infiltration has ancient roots. That “ring” is extremely powerful. Not only in blackmail, but in systemic corruption of systems; …and dare I say one’s very soul? Or, even the soul of a society?
      This is just the tip of an icy evil, that is very deep & large. An iceberg that is hidden. There is sadly, an ancient knowledge here that, itself, has been purposely “corrupted”. And I’m being nice when I type corrupted. We all know it’s worse than that. And this “tip” that has broken “surface”, is not a omen to ignore.

      I’d expect no less from this site.

      • the western banks pay interest to “private” ?, except China, they print there $ interest free

        Who benefits, while the beasts run our nations into spiritless souless outpost of vile putrid materialism?

        They look like us but have no loyalty too us…a 5th column of traitors with no soul, beasts are the enabler…..bad shepperds

        • Im banking that China has an excellent memory of “opium”. They know how to hit that “ball” back into the other court. But, what concerns me, is the influence of drugs/debt-based economy. The parasitic “wetiko”/is not to be under estimated. The Rothchilds are a “super spreader” of said infection. I know the Rothchilds have got many irons in the fire of the Dragon. But, as I’ve said, I’m banking that their memory has a hot iron or two in a fire as well; and more importantly, knows where to put it.

          • did the Emperor die while fleeing to the summer palace during the 2nd opium war……..they do lie dont they.

            The world changed after that, with the Amerinian )cosmic serpant) revolution, where more Americans died than ww1, ww2, the korean war…..and the great Irish slaughter aka the vietnam war combined…..all under Lincoln….odd his birth log cabin was built 10 years after he was born, he had a knowledge of fiat, and ruled as a dictator……such a hero,…also the first women hung in Armerica was for his assassination along with 4 others..

  14. name one indoctrination legion that does not involve itself in this activity.
    Perverting the moral compass of a child makes a good robot.

  15. Lol I am reading all this, and all the time I am thinking…. zip it! zip it! But man, these fingers just want to run away with typing.

    1. Firstly, it is about time that the Pope, the Vatican and the Jesuits came to terms with the fact that “papal power and jurisdiction” is NOT

    “(1) supreme, (2) universal, and (3) IMMEDIATE” they DO NOT own my soul or my body, or anyone else’s for that matter.

    Due to this misguided perception of themselves, over 12 million were murdered and burnt at the stake in the Middle Ages, most notably in the South of France, by these people. In the last centruy10 million Protestants , orthodox Christians, and Sephardic Jews..

    ( see the Jesuit crimes in Croatia during WW2 as one example
    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/11/26/nazi-croatia-death-camps/ )

    were murdered with the support of the Pope who condoned fascism, Hitler and Mousollini. With all this blood on their hands, they do not represent Christ but the Anti Christ.

    2. As the richest single body on earth the Vatican is far from the Christian teachings and those who they claim to hold power over slip through the eyes of needles while the Kingdom of Heaven shuts it’s doors to them. In fact they are the same as the Levite priests at the Temple in Jerusalem during 1 A.D, and as I recall a certain somebody took a whip to the lot of them for matters relating to money! . And appear to have adopted the Talmud which condones peodophilia. No wonder they are in bed with Ashkenazi Zionist Bankers, … literally.

    3. The Catholic Church is the biggest child sex ring organisation on the planet and it is about time they were exposed as such, which appears to be happening and the sooner all are exposed and brought to book the better. I am reminded of the words, “Suffer the little children to come unto me..” Guess Jesus was also opposed to the Talmud!

    4. And lastly, the Jesuit order of the Vatican and the black Pope ARE the Illuminati ( founded by a Jesuit) Neo – con , Nazi ( the Pope is one) Fascists, ( a political ideology founded by them ) the hidden hand of the Nazi World Order, One World Bank ( at the head of which is the Vatican Bank, the Rothschilds are their bankers ) and One World Order in which they……… believe….

    “papal power and jurisdiction is (1) supreme, (2) universal, and (3) IMMEDIATE”

    Here is an excellent article: The Mafia, The CIA, & The Vatican’s Intelligence Apparatus http://rense.com/general6/maf.htm

    The sooner the world turns their back on this corrupt, money laundering, criminal and perverted institution, with the blood of millions on it’s hands, the better!

    • PS: I still strongly suspect that all America’s Gold, is sitting in the catacombs under the Vatican. Fort Knox was emptied by the Jesuits long ago. A Constitution and a Bills of Rights does not sit comfortably with papal power and they have been planning the downfall of the of the Republic, founded by Protestants, since day one.

    • Hi Gail i coudent have said this better myself,in compleat agreement with everything youve just said well done

  16. And one more thing. Considering the wealth of the Church, it’s financial scandals, secrecy, and the winding downward spiral that leads to underground, cryptic connections etc., we have to be aware that absolute power corrupts absolutely. And what does money translate into, in today’s world? Money is power and the Catholic Church is saturated with both. When the scandals broke open in every direction, the local church parking lot overflowed with parishioners, much to my astonishment. The cash registers kept ringing, people kept supporting, kept paying…

    Why don’t people stop and realize that “God” doesn’t need their money, but the “devil” can’t live without it. Until, in this civilization, people understand that their money sustains every form of corruption they object to and they stop paying for what they don’t want in their world, we will continue to be subject to all the things that we lament.

  17. I have read other commentary on the ‘net that does mislead regarding the Pope’s comments, i.e. claiming the Pope is saying that HE feels child abuse is normal and somewhat taking his comment out of context. That is not what Dr. Farrell is doing here and furthermore, this is one of those cases in which the Pope’s comment can be perceived as nothing less than astonishingly callous and even opposes his transparent attempt to appear academic because his context is, to a psychologically balanced person, brain-dead and idiotic. Here is a world religious “leader” demonstrating that he is not only educated beyond his intelligence, but that he has a perverted logic, a heart of stone, and in COMPLETELY incapable of leading anyone as a moral/ethical/spiritual guide. He is typical of the psycho-pathological “leadership” around the world but what makes this heinous is that he claims to be a mouthpiece of Divinity on earth. As with every other politician, he is blaming outside forces when he is in charge of his own organization and this kind of ivory-tower detachment from his own responsibility is over-the-top unacceptable.

    We should all be astonished at ourselves for entertaining his BS as a mental exercise. Furthermore, the sexual variations he refers to are as old as mankind, percolating furiously in the shadows, and did not just “arrive” into the mass consciousness in the 70’s or any other named decade. In the context of the Catholic church, it’s a case of the evil they have slain others for in ages past, taking hold and then being excused due to “societal” factors. What is his Church, if not above all of that? It’s beyond ridiculous.

    The referenced article sums this up pretty well:
    “…Barbara Blaine, the head of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, “It is fundamentally disturbing to watch a brilliant (not brilliant, my addition) man so conveniently misdiagnose a horrific scandal,” she added.
    The Pope insists on talking about a vague ‘broader context’ he can’t control, while ignoring the clear ‘broader context’ he can influence — the long-standing and unhealthy culture of a rigid, secretive, all-male Church hierarchy fixated on self-preservation at all costs. This is the ‘context’ that matters.”

    And finally, we are what we condone. We are our actions. We are what we will not stand up to. My personal observations of what the Pope is made of aside, it doesn’t take a transpersonal psychologist to see that he caresses and protects the Shadow while he claims to be the Light.

    And this is the world before us, that they would make for us, if we would not see for ourselves. There is a mind plague afoot. May humanity survive it.

    • Here I have to agree with you Diedre… the papacy, in its own dogmas about itself, at Vatican I, defined the pope as being able to speak on any matter of faith or morals with an infallibility ex cathedra… but more importantly, that council defined actual papal power and jurisdiction as being (1) supreme, (2) universal, and (3) IMMEDIATE, which, as I have pointed out before, would seem to give the pope the authority to circumvent the normal hierarchical channels and intervene directly in the affairs of any local diocese, parish, and, for that matter, some would say individual. The bottom line is; he can do something.

      • To give a ‘reason’ for evil is to make evil some-thing intelligible, and thus, remove our outrage against it.

        • photios,

          I think you almost hit the nail on the head? My contention is that trying to find or inject sic —“Rational Explanations” for every Evil misses the point. We humans are not rational creatures. (we only think we our due to our Symbolic sense of Self which is a very subjective and transitory affair. )

          We’re flesh and blood mortal creatures who in the end …. so why not think the Foundations of our Sense of Reason are based on a body that is very Real?

          Thank you photios for your post. I also suggest ‘Ditch that Cloak or hoodie” for you just might be making unintended impressions on people? (ok —different folks, different strokes = within reason, ha, ha!)

  18. Sorry, Joseph–while I share your concern with the Pope’s call for worldwide government and central banking, you seem off-base on your comments today.

    All the Pope is doing in the selections to which you refer is surveying opinion. This is something with which you, as a former academic, should be familiar. The Pope is also a former academic. This “reading the lay of the land” is done to provide context. Your analysis in this case seems simply irresponsible.

      • Respectfully, I disagree…of course he’s surveying, as is his prerogative. But my point remains: is he really that concerned about the thing, or the way it reflects on the institution, and on the power and reputation of that institution… the context of MY remarks and concerns is that this is coming from the same institution that has coddled the phenomenon AND called for a global moral authority, which, from its own unrecanted teachings and dogmas about its own station in the church, can only mean itself. Your point is well taken however, and I should have expressed myself more clearly.

          • On a different vein, I remember Jean Baudrillard the post-modernist criticizing the previous Pope becoming a Media Sensation or a “Simulation” when in the end Baudrillard became one too. I guess the temptation is too great seeing one image plastered all over on giant billboards in this case the imaginary billboard being a “Reputation?”

            I finally gave up on giving the Pope any credence when they ended the hundreds of years old Tradition of making Italians Infallible, Then a Pole and now we have Nazi-Ratzi for pope. (I would say what a ‘Shack Up with the breakaway civilization! I meant to say shake up but then again the meaning stays the same!)

            I’m not a practicing Roman Catholic for I prefer the Mass said in Latin rather than the plain old venacular. I can remember as a little boy being sometimes awe-struck listening to that strange language being incanted over altars by buggering priests. Now, not so real, not for me, I’ll pass!

            All this kind of reminds me that when Rome fell the Senators abandoned ship then morphed into Cardinals. That’s just about as good as “landing in the Swamps” of Venice. Pardon me for “harping” but those two expressions are the kind of writings one never forgets after reading thousands of lines I will never remember or forget the next day?

            Poesis anybody?

          • You are a gentlemen Joseph!

            I absolutely agree with the context of your remarks. The Vatican should in NO WAY set itself up as a moral authority-globally or other.

            My concern here was in the sourcing and how that could be misconstrued.

        • Yes, Dr. Farrell, you ARE correct. Your own context is being overlooked, and I think this is due to emotional hot-buttons and our tendency to speed-read and miss the point. My comment above addresses the misunderstanding about this man and his institution serving as a moral authority when there is no trust established for that kind of authority. In fact, it’s time each person learns to be their own authority and to stop following the perpetrators of a diseased system.

          • Sorry Dedre, i have to disagree respectfully with you here. I’m not Catholic and certainly NOT a supporter of the Vatican. The argument that was raised (at least from my point of view) was in regard to the sourcing.

            The reality is the article isn’t a good source for quite a few reasons. I agree with Joseph’s sentiments regarding the vatican and morality, my beef was with the sourcing.

            If Joseph had deconstructed the original address, that would have been more authoritative. Having said that-it is a blog and not a University tut room ;)
