Pope Benedict XVI, Priest/Child Rape, and that Special Immunity / Napoleon, Col. de Lisle, and the 1809 Raid on the Madrid Inquisition / Real Abuse
AVALANCHE OF SEX ABUSE ALLEGATIONS
So many men have come forward to say that Catholic priests "sexually abused" them. While most of the reports are somewhat vague, it sounds like the priests, who are all men, raped boys at their schools. Schools like St. John's School for the Deaf in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
PEDOPHILE PRIESTS LOVE DEAF CHILDREN WHO CAN'T TALK
These positions were particularly popular among love-hungry priests, because many of the children can't talk at all. They just move their hands to communicate with sign language. A language most people don't understand.
So the evil priest could have his way, and word was slow to get out.
CHILDREN: THEY DIDN'T LIKE IT
"They were deaf, but they were not silent. For decades, a group of men who were sexually abused as children by the Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy at a school for the deaf in Wisconsin reported to every type of official they could think of that he was a danger, according to the victims and church documents.
JUST A SECRET BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM
Steven Geier said the priest who molested him as a boy told him he had to keep it a secret. Mr. Geier reported the abuse to three priests, including the Rev. Tom Schroeder.
They told other priests. They told three archbishops of Milwaukee. They told two police departments and the district attorney.
THEY TRIED TO TELL THEIR STORY
They used sign language, written affidavits and graphic gestures to show what exactly Father Murphy had done to them. But their reports fell on the deaf ears of hearing people." (Laurie Goodstein, David Callender, For Years, Deaf Boys Tried to Tell of Priest’s Abuse, New York Times, 26 Mar 2010)
There was outrageous sexual perversion going between Catholic priests and children:
HIGH CATHOLIC AUTHORITY
Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley runs the Catholic franchise in Boston. He says: "What is very clear to me -- and I think to all who are fair-minded -- is that Cardinal Ratzinger and later Pope Benedict has been dedicated to eradicating
"YES, THERE'S BEEN PLENTY OF SEXUAL ABUSE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH"
sexual abuse in the Church". (Lisa Wangsness, Cardinal O'Malley defends pope on abuse, Boston Globe, 2 Apr 2010)
But was it really abuse?
The word is defined as "Improper use or handling; misuse." http://www.answers.com/topic/abuse
There was lots of perversion and rape going on, but was it, in the context, improper?
There are plenty of state laws that speak against man/boy action. On the books.
But when Priest Murphy's students complained to the police, it turned out that another law was in play.
Obviously, if Priest Murphy was sodomizing these young boys, and it was really illegal, the police would have clipped his wings.
So what higher law was in play?
FRENCH SOLDIERS INVESTIGATE CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN SPAIN
Back in 1809, Napoleon Bonaparte came to Spain. Col. De Lisle and the 117th regiment were sent to an inquisition building just outside Madrid. The facility was strongly fortified, and defended by soldiers of
RUN BY THE "HOLY OFFICE"
the Holy Office.
"Pope Benedict XVI was once dubbed "God's rottweiler"". "Before he became Pope he spent 24 years as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith - once known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition." (Profile: Pope Benedict XVI, BBC, 25 Dec 2009)
The experienced combat troops under Col. de Lisle had no problem taking the facility, and wanted to find out where the prisoners were kept. The staff on hand included the Inquisitor-General and a
WHEN MEN LIKE TO WEAR ROBES
number of priests in their official robes:
"Dressed in gold robes and shielded from a cool drizzle by a canopy, Benedict looked weary during much of the Mass, the highlight of a heavy Holy Week schedule." (Frances D'Emilio, Pope's immunity could be challenged in Britain, AP, 4 Apr 2010)
"drag queen n. Slang A man, especially a performer, who dresses as a woman." http://www.answers.com/topic/drag-queen
Gold robes don't come cheap.
And back in 1809, the Catholic church also had plenty of money to splash around. The apartments were splendidly furnished with altars, crucifixes, and candles in abundance.
And that was what life was like above ground in this "Holy Office" facility.
But where were those prisoners?
The Holy Office priests didn't want to say.
THEN AS NOW
"In a 2005 test case in Texas that involved alleged victims of sex abuse by priests, the Vatican obtained the intervention of President George W. Bush, who
SURE THERE'S SEX ABUSE, BUT THESE PEOPLE CLAIM IMMUNITY
agreed the pope should have immunity against such prosecutions because he was an acting head of a foreign state." "it would be almost impossible to strip the pope of his immunity now." (Paisley Dodds, Pope's immunity could be challenged in Britain, AP, 4 Apr 2010)
And so these laws are on the books, the perverts break those book laws, but get off -- because they have immunity.
Like they claimed back in 1809 in Madrid.
And so the French soldiers looked and looked. And finally found a hidden stairway under the marble floor (what else?) that led down to the "Hall of Judgment" and torture rooms. There were plenty of cells for the prisoners, some occupied by living victims, others by corpses in decay.
The living prisoners were 100% naked.
It made "abuse" so easy. The Holy Office staff could come down. Raise their robes in a flash, and work over the victims.
This story has been generally known for about 200 years. So the boys, and their parents have been warned.
""I warned them about all of this," declared
EMINENT JEWISH AUTHOR
author Christopher Hitchens, appearing on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night. "Nothing good can come of a church that has as its' slogan, 'Leave no child's behind.' And then they went and chose as pope the man who was personally responsible, in his dioceses, and institutionally responsible for the cover-up." (Stephen C. Webster, Hitchens: Pope Benedict wants ‘wiggle room’ for ‘rape and torture of children’, The Raw Story, 27 Mar 2010)
Would Holy Office Catholic priests really torture?
The French soldiers found the answer to this question. Down below, the torture facilities were well-equipped. So the French soldiers decided to test the devices -- on the Holy Office priests.
Col. de Lisle went back to Madrid, and got a lot of gunpowder. He put it under the building, and blew the facility.
Which finally brings us to the answer to our question: Was it abuse?
The Holy Office had a facility in Madrid where victims were held naked and abused. Christopher Hitchens describes the priests' handling of children as rape and torture. (Stephen C. Webster, Hitchens: Pope Benedict wants ‘wiggle room’ for ‘rape and torture of children’, The Raw Story, 27 Mar 2010)
The priests were just following standard operating procedure. And if parents send their children into Holy Office facilities, Well, whose fault is that?
The priests lived in strict conformity to a code of conduct dating back to the palace in Madrid, and well beyond.
So was their behavior improper? It was just to be expected of them.
Well, who runs the "Holy Office of the Inquisition"? Pope Benedict did for 24 years. (Profile: Pope Benedict XVI, BBC, 25 Dec 2009)
And who got this office going -- back in the beginning?
In our groundbreaking study of the cruel destruction of Béziers, we learned that the Dominicans had been founded by Dominique de Guzman, a Spanish Jew working for the Catholic Church as the Canon of Osma. Guzman went on to found the religious order of the Dominicans in 1215. (Séjours Découverte en Pays Cathare, French Holidays 2007, http://www.vivresansfrontieres.com/French_Version/French_Holidays_FR/FH_Pays_Cathare_FR.html) "the Dominican order had won for itself a special position not only in the medieval Inquisition but also in the Spanish." (Henry Kamen, The Spanish Inquisition: a historical revision, Yale University Press, 1998, p 159)
This wasn't too difficult for the Dominicans in Spain because they were in on the ground floor. In 1478, the half-Jew Torquemada started pushing hard for a permanent inquisition. (John Edwards, Ferdinand and Isabella - Profiles in Power, Pearson Education, 2005, p 72)
Which he was able to set up, and run for years:
"Thomas de Torquemada, first inquisitor-general of Spain, died the 16th of November 1498. The miseries which were the consequences of the system which he adopted, and recommended to his successors, justify the general hatred which followed him to the tomb, and compelled him take precautions for his personal safety." "the Pope himself was alarmed at his barabarity". (Juan Antonio Llorente, The history of the Inquisition of Spain: from the time of its establishment to the reign of Ferdinand VII, James M. Campbell & Co., 1843, p 28)
"Torquemada had Jewish blood". (The Encyclopedia Americana, vol. 1, 2002, p 863) As did the founder of his order. As did his successor Benedict.
How do we know?
We just look at where he goes to church -- in his free time, when he's not busy with the affairs of the Holy Office.
What? He still runs that branch of business? "the powers of the inquisition derived from the papacy". (Henry Kamen, The Spanish Inquisition: a historical revision, Yale University Press, 1998, pp 158, 159)
"I know that the Jewish community makes a valuable contribution to the life of the city". (Pope Benedict cited in Pope makes historic visit to synagogue, USA Today, April 18, 2008 ) Just like the Jewish community did to the Dominican order in its establishment, and its takeover of Holy Office activities in Spain.
"Pope Benedict XVI made his first visit to a synagogue in the United states on Friday, accepting gifts and proclaiming his "respect and esteem" for the New York Jewish community." (Pope makes historic visit to synagogue, USA Today, April 18, 2008 )
IF HE HAD REALLY BEEN A CATHOLIC
There are plenty of Catholic churches in New York, but sometimes a converso has to go home and worship among his kinsmen.
WHEN A "GERMAN" POPE LOVES MATZO BREAD
"In the synagogue, two youths gave Benedict unleavened matzo bread and a copy of the Passover Haggadah text. The pope told them he would eat the matzo on Saturday,
AND ORDERS HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO JEWISH RITUALS
according to the Jewish ritual." (Pope Benedict XVI gets warm welcome at New York synagogue, Haaretz.com, April 19, 2008 )
WHICH HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED IN DETAIL BY AN EMINENT JEWISH EXPERT
"Professor Ariel Toaff is among Israel's and the world's senior researchers in medieval Jewish communities and the Italian Jewish community." (Bar-Ilan University Spokesman, BAR-ILAN UNIVERSITY STATEMENT ON PROFESSOR ARIEL TOAFF'S RESEARCH REGARDING BLOOD LIBELS, IPR Strategic Business Information Database, February 12, 2007)
"Toaff discovered many cases of bloody sacrifices connected with the mutilation of children, the outpouring of blood and its baking in Matzo (unleavened Passover bread). The flood of blood accusations in the South Tyrol and upper Veneto at the end of the 15th century, were grounded in facts, according to Toaff’s research." (Marian Horvat, Bloody Passovers Reported by a Jewish Scholar, 4 Oct 2007)
As Senior Rabbi Schneier put it: "The image of the leader of the Catholic church standing in a synagogue with the rabbi, you don't have to say a word. It tells you what the statement is." (Pope Benedict XVI gets warm welcome at New York synagogue, Haaretz.com, April 19, 2008 )
These are the principal signs of judaizing :
- speaking and reading Hebrew
- participating in Jewish ceremonies
- eating of unleavened bread
On the Sabbath, the Jewish pope will enjoy his unleavened bread. Which he got at the synagogue while participating in Jewish ceremonies.
Speaking in Hebrew? Naturally! As a matter of course! (Levi Brackman, Warm welcome for Pope in US synagogue, ynet, April 19, 2008 ) "It is with joy that I come here, just a few hours before the celebration of your Pesah, to express my respect and esteem for the Jewish community in New York City," the German-born pontiff said, using the Hebrew word for Passover." (Levi Brackman, Warm welcome for Pope in US synagogue, ynet, April 19, 2008 ) "The king of the Jews will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of the international church". (Protocol 17)
These various friars and priests will tell you that they are Christians if you ask them. Even though they run around with a large cross around the neck.
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 7:21, Holy Bible)
So ask yourself, is it the will of the Father in Heaven that victims of priestly abuse be held naked and tortured? In 1809 and in 2010?
WHEN DENIERS OF JESUS GET INTO THE CHURCH
" For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
THIS SORT OF THING HAS BEEN HAPPENING ON AN INDUSTRIAL SCALE IN THOSE HOLY OFFICE FACILITIES AND SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF
 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
 Likewise also these
filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
 But these speak evil of those things which they know not:
BUT FATHER MURPHY WAS JUST DOING WHAT CAME NATURALLY TO HIM
but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
SURE THEY LIKE THEIR FEASTS AND MARBLE FLOORS -- AS THE EXPENSE OF CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS
 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts". (Jude 1, Holy Bible)
"But its findings will not be used for criminal prosecutions - in part because the Christian Brothers successfully sued the commission in 2004 to keep the identities of all of its members, dead or alive, unnamed in the report. No real names, whether of victims or perpetrators, appear in the final document.
Irish church leaders and religious orders all declined to comment Wednesday, citing the need to read the massive document first. The Vatican also declined to comment.
"WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS"
The Irish government already has funded a parallel compensation system that has paid 12,000 abuse victims an average of euro65,000 ($90,000). About 2,000 claims remain outstanding.
Victims receive the payouts only if they waive their rights to sue the state and the church. Hundreds have rejected that condition and taken their abusers and those church employers to court.
JUST LIKE IN THE WISCONSIN DEAF SCHOOL
Wednesday's report said children had no safe way to tell authorities about the assaults they were suffering, particularly the sexual aggression from church officials and older inmates in boys' institutions.
"The management did not listen to or believe children when they complained of
"These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear"
the activities of some of the men who had responsibility for their care," the commission found. "At best, the abusers were moved, but nothing was done about the harm done to the child. At worst, the child was blamed and seen as corrupted by the sexual activity, and
WHICH BRINGS US BACK TO MADRID IN 1809
was punished severely."
The commission dismissed as implausible a central defense of the religious orders - that,
IT WAS JUST BUSINESS AS USUAL
in bygone days, people did not recognize the sexual abuse of a child as a criminal offense, but rather as a sin that required repentance." (Irish Report Details Catholic Child Abuse, CBS News, 20 May 2009)
Perverted priests have raped children on a massive scale. Around the globe.
Its rape. Its torture. (as per Hitchens, supra)
But its not abuse. Because "what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves." (Jude 1:10, Holy Bible) Numerous examples throughout history have been available for years. And if parents voluntarily send their children to places where the priests do "what they know naturally" (as per Jude 1:10, Holy Bible), the parents are to blame.
There are many, many serious Christians out there. They follow Jesus' commands, and will live him in Heaven for eternity.
But then there are all those false converts:
"Meanwhile, the discovery (and immediate burning) at Llerena in September 1467 of two conversos for practising Judaism seemed to confirm the religious insincerity of New Christians. Preachers made the most of such cases. Among them was Alonso de Hojeda, a Dominican prior of Seville, who devoted all his energies to making the crown aware of the reality of the danger from Jews and false converts". (Henry Kamen, The Spanish Inquisition: a historical revision, Yale University Press, 1998, p 43) Like Domingo Núñez de Guzmán Garcés, Tomás de Torquemada, and Pope Benedict.
VATICAN COURT PREACHER: CRITICISM OF POPE OVER CHILD RAPE IS ANTI-SEMITISM
Raniero Cantalamessa is "Preacher of the Pontifical Household. He preached at Good Friday services in St. Peter's in Rome: "The use of stereotypes, the shifting of personal responsibility and guilt to a collective guilt remind me of the most shameful aspects of anti-Semitism". (Raniero Cantalamessa cited in Preacher compares attacks on pope to Jewish suffering, Reuters, 2 Apr 2010) They like to call themselves Christians, but when criticism comes for their priests' rape and torture of little children (per Christopher Hitchens cited in Stephen C. Webster, Hitchens: Pope Benedict wants ‘wiggle room’ for ‘rape and torture of children’, The Raw Story, 27 Mar 2010), well, the criticism is anti-Semitism. (per Raniero Cantalamessa cited in Preacher compares attacks on pope to Jewish suffering, Reuters, 2 Apr 2010)
And there is consensus. This pope has his house preacher, and his personal rabbi. Who agrees: "The image of the leader of the Catholic church standing in a synagogue with the rabbi, you don't have to say a word. It tells you what the statement is." (Senior Rabbi Schneier cited in Pope Benedict XVI gets warm welcome at New York synagogue, Haaretz.com, April 19, 2008 )
