Pedophilia and Satanism in the Vatican

[2014 June] Archbishop: 'I didn’t know sex with kids was a crime'

Make no mistake about it, the behavior of the Roman Catholic Church in transferring confirmed criminal sexual pedophile priests to new unsuspecting churches, knowing full well that they would continue their criminal abominations against other children, is criminal. The pervasive and continual pattern of such aiding and abetting of criminal pedophiles compounded by extraordinary efforts to conceal records and other evidence of their criminality can only be properly described as organized crime.

[2011 Aug] Ken Bear Chief Reaches Out to Boarding-School Survivors  Five hundred of the firm’s Native plaintiffs recently participated in a historic $166-million-dollar payment from the Jesuit order. “When Brother Charley (the late René Gallant) began repeatedly raping one girl at St. Ignatius, nuns targeted her for beatings and eventually ran her arm through a washing-machine mangle, crippling her, according to the affidavit of another of our clients.”

[vid] Ex-Communicated Priest Exposes The New World Order in 1986  Listen to this riveting 1986 sermon given by now deceased Priest John O’Conner exposing Benjamin Creme, Maitreya, Freemasonry, the Anti-Christ communist movement, new age occult practices, church infiltration of the homosexual movement, the Federal Reserve and more.
    O’Connor was ordered to be examined by a psychologist following a talk in which he named his Superior Cardinal Joseph Louis Bernardin, his Dominican brothers Benedict Ashley, William Bernacki, Peter Witchousky and his Dominican Superior Donald Goergen as members of the Gay Rights Movement. His Superior barred young men from joining the Dominicans if they refused to accept sodomy and homosexuality as a viable life style alternative. He had been informed of this by several young males who had sought ordination.
    O’Connor sought the advice of a Canon Lawyer, Fr Alfred Kunz. Fr. Kunz was brutally murdered in a ritualistic fashion after assisting in the investigation of a satanic pedophile cult connected to the priesthood. In the summer of 1991, Rome informed O’Connor that he was dismissed from the Dominicans. O’Connor packed his bags and left the River Forest Priory forever. He lived with his widowed sister until his death of natural causes on Dec 7th 2006.

[2009 may] The Never-Ending State and Church Crime Story Like a little boy caught with a rock in his hand, Pope Joseph is in serious trouble, now that Canada has had to admit that thousands of native kids died at the hands of the Catholic church, which established and ran most of the Indian residential schools. But to make things worse, Joe himself is personally implicated in the whole mess, since in writing he ordered Bishops and priests to suppress evidence of the violence done against not only native children, but any victim of priestly sexual assault, on pain of excommunication.  Covering up a crime is itself a crime, under any law, and Joe knows it. And so does the Oregon circuit court judge who ruled recently that survivors of any assault by a Catholic priest could sue the Vatican itself for damages.

[2007] Catholic church in LA to pay £325m compensation to child abuse victims  Each of the 508 claimants will receive about $1.3 million if a judge in Los Angeles this morning approves a deal that will also halt legal proceedings against 15 accused priests and spare senior church officials from taking the stand. ....The case is among the most prominent of several around the US that have cost the Catholic church more than $2 billion (£983 million) in compensation payments. The previous biggest pay-out to victims was $157 million by the Boston archdiocese in 2003. A year later, a report commissioned by the church revealed more than 4,000 of its priests had faced sexual abuse allegations in the last 50 years and that there were more than 10,000 victims, mostly boys. ....Steve Sanchez, who was abused by a Los Angeles priest when he was a boy, said: "Hundreds of hurting men and women desperately need intense therapy, addiction counselling, drug rehab, in-patient treatment and medical help."

[2006] Pope 'led cover-up of child abuse by priests' The Pope played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests,.....In 2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to Catholic bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church's interests ahead of child safety.  The programme also accuses the Catholic Church of knowingly harbouring paedophile clergymen. It reveals that priests accused of child abuse are generally not struck off or arrested but simply moved to another parish, often to reoffend. It gives examples of hush funds being used to silence the victims.

[2006 USA] 'Satanic' art in Catholic Church exposed  Could the Roman Catholic Church's sex abuse crisis be tied to embedded Satanic and occultic imagery in its artwork – some of it hundreds of years old? ....The film, which is being released by Silver Sword International, contends a major cause of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church could be due to prolonged exposure to sexual and satanic images being incorporated into the religious art.

[2002] Suing the Pope  The Catholic Church did not tell the locals that Fr Fortune was a brutal, predatory paedophile. They organised delegations to two Bishops - wrote to the Papal Nuncio and the Vatican. The church promised it would do something. It never did....But what the locals did not know was that Fr Fortune already faced mounting allegations of child sexual abuse. The Catholic Church kept this knowledge to itself. 18 years after the first complaint, the Catholic Church was finally forced to remove him from duties.

Sex Crimes And The Vatican. A secret document which sets out a procedure for dealing with child sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church is examined by Panorama. Crimen Sollicitationis was enforced for 20 years by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before he became the Pope. It instructs bishops on how to deal with allegations of child abuse against priests and has been seen by few outsiders. Critics say the document has been used to evade prosecution for sex crimes. It instructs them how to deal with priests who solicit sex from the confessional. It also deals with "any obscene external act ... with youths of either sex." It imposes an oath of secrecy on the child victim, the priest dealing with the allegation and any witnesses. Breaking that oath means excommunication from the Catholic Church. Reporting for Panorama, Colm O'Gorman finds seven priests with child abuse allegations made against them living in and around the Vatican City. One of the priests, Father Joseph Henn, has been indicted on 13 molestation charges brought by a grand jury in the United States. During filming for Sex Crimes and the Vatican, Colm finds Father Henn is fighting extradition orders from inside the headquarters of this religious order in the Vatican. The Vatican has not compelled him to return to America to face the charges against him. After filming, Father Henn lost his fight against extradition but fled the headquarters and is believed to be hiding in Italy while there is an international warrant for his arrest. Colm O'Gorman was raped by a Catholic priest in the diocese of Ferns in County Wexford in Ireland when he was 14 years old. Father Fortune was charged with 66 counts of sexual, indecent assault and another serious sexual offence relating to eight boys but he committed suicide on the eve of his trial. Colm started an investigation with the BBC in March 2002 which led to the resignation of Dr Brendan Comiskey, the bishop leading the Ferns Diocese. Colm then pushed for a government inquiry which led to the Ferns Report. It was published in October 2005 and found: "A culture of secrecy and fear of scandal that led bishops to place the interests of the Catholic Church ahead of the safety of children."
