I ran across this piece about Senator Sick Rantorum (that name by the way, is not my own, it's someone else's) and the Roman Catholic organization known as Opus Dei:

How Opus Dei Influenced Rick Santorum

Now don't get me wrong. Roman Catholicism has done a extraordinary amount of good in the world, running hospitals, hospices, orphanages and charities worldwide. But it also has a mixed track record, as we well know: burning people alive simply for believing things that were not official church doctrine. We're told, reassuringly, that the leopard has changed its spots, that it has reformed itself, that those"nasty mediaeval things" would no longer be acceptable. Really?

Enter Opus Dei, whose "numeraries" wear a "cilice", a spiked belt with the spikes turned toward the skin to practice the mortification of the flesh. Nothing mediaeval about that... because it is taking place in the 21st century.

...And Senator Rantorum is associated with it, a man who informs us that America is all about forcing its moral values on others? See Santorum: “Imposing” our values on each other is “what America’s about”) Who found the recent assassination of the young Iranian scientist a "wonderful" thing? Who sent his children to a school associated with an organization whose numeraries wear spiked belts and whose website says it is "nothing traumatic?" Who wants to lecture us about "natural law" while being associated with an organization promoting celibacy (that's nature, right?) and wearing spiked belts because they have volunteered to do so? Who wants us to believe that contraception is somehow contrary to that wonderful natural law? Who literally sneers at opposing candidates when they say something that conflicts with his own views?

Let us be clear: his is a deeply morally conflicted vision; it is mediaeval in all the worst ways. It is, I am bold to suggest, yet another manifestation of the inherent contradictions in Yahwism that Dr. de Hart and I wrote about in Yahweh The Two-Faced God. Mr Rantorum is, of course, free to practice his beliefs, but lecturing the rest of us on the meaning of morality and family values while attending a 100 year celebration of the birth of this organization is not, to my mind, very reassuring.

And let us be clear about something else, the logical end result of Mr. Rantorum's moral vision of America is a tyranny, just like the religious organization of which he is a member is, in the final analysis, a tyranny, headed by an office that claims the sole right to speak for God. We would do well to remind ourselves of the decree of Boniface VIII, that it was altogether necessary to salvation for every human being to be subject to the Roman Pontiff. We would do well to remind ourselves that the decree of the First Vatican Council stated that said pontiff had an universal, supreme, and immediate jurisdiction, and that said pontiff was infallible. Doesn't get any clearer than that folks. And Mr. Rantorum wants to raise the specter of Governor Romney's belonging to a "cult"!?: "Would the potential attraction to Mormonism by simply having a Mormon in the White House threaten traditional Christianity by leading more Americans to a church that some Christians believe misleadingly calls itself Christian, is an active missionary church, and a dangerous cult?" Mr. Rantorum's language here is, of course, disingenuous, for by the teachings of his own church, every other religion is a "dangerous cult."

No, Mr. Rantorum... every time you open your mouth to deliver your encyclicals on happiness, morality, family values, natural law, the sanctity of human life, and faith, I see the pyres of the Albigensian Crusades, the autos da fe of the Inquisition, and I am reminded that your children went to a school associated with an organization whose members wear spiked belts, and reassuring us it is "nothing traumatic."  I see the record of the institution to which you adhere, and I question how anyone can, without moral hypocrisy, be a member of it and presume to lecture the rest of us on values and the sanctity of human life.

    it would be an interesting task to match up which secret society/ organization backs which candidate—bush and kerry=322
    Gangrich=the hellfire club (apparently).,Obama = the Rothchildes/central bank, Rantorum=the vatican-
    Vast wealth required–Who owns who?
    I am cautiously a Ron Paul supporter, but i can safely say that he is owned as well–logically. Possibly, the good guys, freemasons who still subscribe to the ideals of the freemason founding fathers. Sure, they were “Deists’, but at least they werent the albert pike luciferians, social -engineering, “commun-illuminati” that run the show now.

    I live in a tiny country but even with election fever there is never talk about God or anything else related. I wonder for how long now that I live in a Europe forced on me.
    Don’t ge me wrong the politicians are as rotten here as they are in the USA I’m sure, but what has God to do with elections? Is’nt state and chuch supposed to be seperated in a democracy? No wonder the USA tumbles from one war into a other one and never gets enough of war. Oh well shall enjoy while it last because I will get overun with muslims where I live and there religion is just as bad.

    Normally, I would file this under “interesting, but no longer relevant”….except earlier today I saw THIS youtube on “Ron Paul to lose Iowa Delegates.”

    At the beginning of his “rant,” Bo tells us that Iowa has now apparently decided that there were errors in 131 precincts (this was a hand-count caucus, right? How could they be THAT off?)….so what they have decided to do, SINCE RON PAUL WILL NEVER GET THE NOMINATION, is to take Ron Paul’s delegates away and split them between Romney and Santorum!


    I have come to the conclusion that if “Anonymous” is legitimate (and that is a BIG “if”), I would think a good use of their hacking skills at this point would be to hack into election tallies, state-by-state and county-by-county, and give us a “2nd set of eyes” on the count. We all know the ballot boxes are rigged, especially now that it is all digitalized.

    Keeping an eye on these criminals IS more difficult than catching a greased pig! They even go back and change what we thought was already a done deal!


    • Robert Barricklow on January 22, 2012 at 8:57 pm

      The law, which was meant to keep the powerful in check, is now used instead to sustain and perpetuate their power.
      The telecom immunity battle marked the point when politicians and corporations perfected the process of immunizing elites in the private sector. In the United States[and I’am afraid globally as well], the most powerful corporations need not fear when they break the law or even when courts begin to rule against them. They can simply have the law changed-even retroactively-by the Congress which they own.
      It’s infamous history now with the telecom law.
      Currently their crosshairs are upon the mortgage crimes, to retroactively absolve themselves of those crimes that they pertrated upon their country and her peoples.

      Only as a nation of laws, not men, can America hope to endure.

    • romanmel on January 22, 2012 at 11:26 pm

      Congratulations, you have come to the place of enlightenment needed for sanity in life. Voting is a BIG waste of time the way it exists in the USA national elections today. As a total cynic observer, I marvel at the banter back and forth between voters who favor one tyrant over another. How amusing! All the winners have been selected long in advance by TPTB and yet the sheeple scurry about like rats in a maze thinking their excited motions accomplish what was scheduled to happen long before.

  4. Dr. Scott D. de Hart on January 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Dr. Farrell, it is about time that someone declares as forthrightly as you have in this article that some of us refuse to call black “white”! Yahweh the Two Faced God appears under many “names” so that while people are distracted with the name “Mormon” or “Catholic” or “Radical Islam” or “Evangelical” they take aim at the label while ignoring the beast shredding the fabric of humanity beyond recognition. The insane immorality of it all defies reason … meanwhile, let’s not forget that the “Church” conveniently never put any to death, that was the role of the State working for the same ends under another “name.” What we have here is an ancient alignment growing stronger and stronger as the masses tell us black is white and wrong is right! Good job and excellent article. Apocalypse Theater it is and the audience has a front row seat in this election.

    • paul degagne on January 23, 2012 at 5:17 am

      I know I maybe putting my foot in it but ‘who FIRST told the MASSES that black is white?” (I don’t know but lets blame someone, ha, ha!)

      I am interested in how you use the word ‘FABRIC.” I am thinking of Zygmunt Bauman’s term LIQUID MODERNITY where the SENSE OF SOLIDITY or FABRIC melted down into a different form? What does that sound like to YOU??????????

      A hundred or more years ago psychopathology or socio-pathology was called MORAL INSANITY until all these NIETZSCHE wanna bees who might have gotten him wrong changed the FIELD and the TERMINOLOGY. ( in this case I am with you – they should have kept the term ALIVE!)

      There is an effort by a scientist named E Wilson to restore a form of (biological) MORALITY back into the debate by calling it BIOPHILIA. An attempt to DITCH religious connotations. (just as DOGMATIC Darwinists wont accept the validity or tales of a massive FLOOD IN THE PAST because “Why give the ENEMY any ammunition to use against us?) Biophilia is: ONE – the love of LIFE. TWO — the love of living ORGANISMS. THREE — the love of LIVING SYSTEMS OR systems that generate or promote LIFE. (not like the DEGENERACY we have TODAY – see I am with you on this. (I may be TRANSGRESSIVE OR ANTI-STRUCTURE at certain times BUT we do NEED some kind of STRUCTURE — AT CERTAIN TIMES OF COURSE!)

      This is not bad UNTIL (seems like there is always an UNTIL) somebody in a WHITE-COATor BROOKS BROTHERS SUIT decides YOU or ME or both of US are not in the INTEREST OF LIFE—- THEN IT IS—- BY-BY—- TO THE SCENT OF FLOWERS AND BAMBI IN THE WOODS! (just auditoriums where some IMAGE OF E G MARSHALL facilitates or ESCORTS US to our Euthanasian -DEMISE because we are 67 and one-half years of age instead of 66 and 1/2 yrs. of age?)

      What difference will it make if the genocide is INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL for us?(sloppy mistakes or sic -JUNK SCIENCE with no ETHICS?)




      All I need is a LONG BEARD AND A TUNIC

      and a PICKET SIGN


      HA, HA!

      THE END IS

    • paul degagne on January 23, 2012 at 7:11 am

      Now that I have put my size 12 foot into it — what is the difference between Abrahamic Religions and ZOROASTRIANISM? (Why single out three religions? Seems like simple DUALITY to me?)

      On the third of next month I am going to order your Yahweh BOOK. (I know someone in here might be saying ‘big deal?”) I hope it isn’t just PHYSICS! (although chapter eight in Babylon’s Bankers made the price of the book worth it to me, but still — not all of us are ardent Physics MAJORS?)

      My beggar’s “purse” forces me to chose one or the other when I would like both — I will justify the PURCHASE by saying even if I don’t like the book then at least I made a small contribution. After all i find this Web-Site to have some magical ALLURE and am taking advantage of it. I am trying to examine this sic – SPELL, ha,ha.

      — but the further I go the DEEPER IT GETS! Is there any HOPE FOR ME, ha, ha?)

      Now for further BLACK and WHITE —maybe YAHWEH changed his mind and decided BLACK IS WHITE from now on [ the masses NATURALLY FOLLOW in on it. After all – 5 thousand yrs of agriculture does tend to breed COW-ISH-NESS? (those dam gatherer/hunters wont cooperate!)]

      Maybe I should SHUT UP and wait til I READ THE BOOK?

      One more thing —- ABOUT what I took as a disparaging remark Farrell made in one of his recent articles. I think he made it in a certain way that wasn’t what I am suggesting but for the record I am going to mention this as well?

      His criticism of WORD ANALYSIS?”

      Farrell — I would call it DECONSTRUCTING? Some would call it seeking the ontological origin of a word! (it seems to me you cited an example of getting a WORD WRONG in TRANSLATION when you mentioned YAHWEH first written down as having a corporal existence but some translator MISINTERPRETING the WORD corporal or carnal and AFFIXING some spiritual existence OUTSIDE the physical universe. One slight TRANSCRIPTION ERROR? (whether this was intentional misreading or not, I will have to go back and re-read what you wrote to refresh my memory) but that is the GIST of it.

      WORD ANALYSIS DOES MATTER! ( I am going to be kind by saying —you meant word analysis for PRACTICALITY’S SAKE LEADS TO A —DENSE FOG! ( what is the WORD ==== ASS-U-ME and I am good at it, ha, ha!)

      So what is the major difference between not falling into AS YOU SAY —WORD ANALYSIS and using some other form of ANALYSIS? ( use whatever is available because if you wait for something to come along that’s better one might wait a long time?)

      I am probably being TOO PICKY HERE?

      Again, you answered this already in your writings but repetition makes for refinement.

        ‘not’ – ROTE LEARNING!

    • HAL838 on January 23, 2012 at 9:23 am

      Dr. de Hart,
      You are right and then some.

      This strange sound being heard in so many places
      is NOT the first of such phenomenon,
      although the others I have heard of over the last few years
      emptied whole towns
      that were near Military Bases!

      • HAL838 on January 23, 2012 at 9:33 am

        I wanted to answer Dr. de hart as his post is right on.

        Then I forgot where I was and went into the latest topic.
        No matter.
        All this crazyness is quite related and Dr de Hart
        not only links it very well, but speaks to the
        deliberate dumbing down and continued immorality
        fostered and fed by the Elite World Controllers.

        I, for one, feel as if the stork lost its grip on me
        and I fell into the wrong world !

    Lecturing on the sanctity of human life in one breath and advocating the wholesale killing of innocents by drones in another. War has become a sacrament…death an icon. Truth has become a real disconnect with these type “Christians”. The Prince of Peace weeps.

  6. Robert Barricklow on January 22, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Well said.
    Your voice speaks for many on this.
    I know I’am one, in spades.

  7. LSM on January 22, 2012 at 8:28 am

    tremendous insights as always , Dr. Farrell!- greatly appreciated-

    many warmest regards,

    What is behind Mr. Santorum’s race to the WH? >>>>>

    This is the help he has within the US >>>>>>

    And the help he has outside the US >>>>>

    Maybe the above will clarify the picture.

    Reality defies science fiction, and that is what Dan Brown was dabbling on in the DaVinci Code – mere science fictional level information

      HAL838 I seem to remember your opening an information site.
      Thus you’d be interested in this article.
      For Sunday Jan 22, 2012. UK Government Supresses the Truth
      With your skills you could ferret out the information that is important to your future/present site.

      • HAL838 on January 24, 2012 at 7:00 am

        I have only begun making it known as some
        strange things have started to happen.
        I am not planning to put up my own site,
        but I am listed with
        under “HAL Enterprises.”

        It is also one of the first listings on
        under HAL Enterprises.

        It doesn’t bother me that I don’t even memorize
        or remember the exact address.

        I have groups for information that can be explained.
        This ‘business’ is for those things coming that will
        defy ordinary explanation.
        Thanks much for your interest and referal.

        • Robert Barricklow on January 29, 2012 at 11:02 am

          Thanks again.

          Reminds me of a Thiruvalluvar saying;
          The mark of wisdom is to see the reality behind each appearance.

          Of course, there is always the “other” Oscar:
          The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
