Catholic Church – Child Predators

The Catholic Church is embroiled in a pit of fire surrounding the ongoing, heinously sinful child sexual abuse that has permeated the Church for likely centuries.   This past weekend Pope Francis held a televised live broadcast in which the discussion of this rampant egregious deed was discussed.  And yet, the entire event came across more like an infomercial than a real self-evaluation repentant matter with constructive solutions.

1)   Survivors of abuse were ‘disallowed’ from entering the conference – it was a closed door event.

2)   Senior Cardinal Marx announced that files on abusers were destroyed.

3)   Pope Francis was aware of the atrocities and did virtually nothing to bring justice against his house of criminals.

How do these truthisms bring belief, faith, or hope that the Vatican is really serious about doing anything? Instead, it makes the entire conference look like a sham, a flim-flam media posture event.

Francis was installed as Pope, March 2013.  Over the last few decades there have been 2600 accusations against Priests in the US alone.  All of these allegations were transcribed, the offender was named, and a file created.   It would appear, the Church destroyed many files, meaning each successive Pope was aware of the allegation, and instead of bringing justice, they sought to destroy the evidence.  No evidence – no allegation – Priest cleared.

The conference was attended by just 200 participants…  mostly Bishops.    But in 2018, six Dioceses in Pennsylvania found these same Bishops were guilty of covering up evidence of Priests abusing upwards of 1,000 children.  So in essence, Pope Francis is putting these same morally convicted wolves in charge of guarding the chicken coup.  Obviously it has worked well in the past…

But even that knowledge doesn’t break the surface of corruption that was plagued the Church for ‘decades’, I would think it is more likely centuries.   In the late 2000’s, Pope Benedict XVI sanctioned Cardinal McCarrick of Washington DC for abuse allegations.  Two of the allegations remain ‘sealed’ from the public, others were destroyed.  And despite, the statement by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano that he instructed Pope Francis about the sanctions and allegations in 2013, Pope Francis turned a blind eye and repealed the sanctions.  Why?  If Pope Francis really wanted ‘justice for the children’ as he commanded the Bishops at the conference in Rome, why then did he repeal the sanctions of abuse on his own Archbishop?

But it is worse.  The Vatican and multiple Bishops received reports of McCarricks ‘transgressions’ for decades before anything was done at all.

The history of the abuse within the church was not even addressed by the media until the 1980’s, within the auspices of the Franklin Scandal, and the UK Jimmy Savile sensational story.  In both instances, pedophilia, abuse, was asserted against numerous high profile persons in the US and UK, including entertainment and sports figures, politicians, doctors, lawyers, and anyone with a lot of money to spend.

Like the Catholic Church pedophilia scandals, neither of these two scandals provided justice in any form whatsoever to the victims.  And in most instances, the victims were actually further victimized.  No one went to jail.  No one was sanctioned.   The stories were so high profile, so backed with $$$$ that to this day, one person was charged, Jimmy Savile.

To think that a conference of a handful of corrupt Bishops presided by a corrupt Pope would yield anything different, is like slapping Weinstein on the wrist and demanding that he write 500 times, “I will not ever do that again…”  With his fingers crossed behind his back.   “Pinky swear.”

Some media outlets tend to blame the Priesthood’s rule of chastity as their defense and justification.  And while their manhood might be difficult to subjugate, child abuse is not a normal evolution.   Pedophilia, is not a normal evolution.   A Priest, a Bishop enter the Church promising to uphold chastity as a part of their dedication.   If they don’t believe this is acceptable, there are numerous alternate religions that espouse Christianity that do not adhere to this particular conviction.  They have – a Choice.

One of Pope Francis most revered authoritarians was Romano Guardini, who wrote extensively of Christian Socialism.   Guardini embraced such philosopher’s as Nietzsche, Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle, who advocated Atheism.  Under his pre-Pope name, Jorge Maria Bergoglio, Pope Francis was not bereft of drudge and accusations, including his purported facilitation of the kidnapping of two Jesuit Priests during Argentina’s Dirty War.  These Priests were then subjected to horrific torture. Complaints were filed.  And despite one of the Priests coming forward and claiming the Bergoglio was indeed complicit, and not only reluctant to help, but allegedly involved, the case was – dismissed.

Why?

Money talks.

And so, this is the Pope. This is the Francis who claims that – now – suddenly – the children deserve justice.   This is the person, the man, the power vacuum that wields the whip of Catholic Doctrine and by default, core religiosity.  He sits behind the gated, walled, city of the Vatican that is guarded by the most elite soldiers in the world, equipped with infinite guns and ammo, to protect the men and their wealth who have confiscated their bounty over centuries in the form of art, real estate, stocks, and gold.  All the while telling the sheep what is real, what is truth, what is history, and what is – sin.

While living – the Dream.

Sexual abuse of children is a part of that dream.   It is a part of the history of valuing self above the law – even, the law of God.

The Fall of Family and the Rise of State Children

The disintegration, or fall of family, has been a focal point for over 2500 years. Plato believed that family was an obstacle to progress. As such, Plato believed that the raising of children and the welfare of women were best handled by the State. The abolition of family is a communist agenda shared in our current society by the extreme liberal socialist position. Beginning with the working woman of feminism and the destructive belief that caring for and raising children is beneath the value of a woman, to child care and nannies, this universal charge has altered our society in a very negative way as we hand our children over to be raised as State children.

It is a fact accepted by many scholars and sociologists that the fall of the black community began in the 1960’s with the shift away from traditional family values and the loss of ‘father’. But it didn’t stop there by any means. With the rise of materialism, women joined the labor force in order to have a ‘better life’. A life that meant foregoing family for many and created a secondary rift in the fall of family and family values.

It comes within the pretty package of the ‘me’ generation that values self over everything else. Coaxing women to continually pay more attention to self has morphed into a proliferation of narcissism greater than possibly any other time in history. And the media play it like a mantra.

Add a pinch of commercial consumption and a dash of shifting priorities of worth tied to money, and the witches concoction is a perfect Fall. For example: there is a contingent of individuals that believes that global warming is an out-of-balance phenomena that will wreak havoc on our earth and possibly destroy our very existence. Okay, let’s use the same statement in a different arena: We are a society out-of-balance and out of touch with reality and the havoc this lack of moral code, moral ethics and state run family will have on our continuance – is not positive.

The very fabric of our existence is at risk of crumbling and yet the focus is in the proverbial sand.

While the concept of a police state is not new, never before have we lived in a realm of shadows that is so intent on creating, molding, and structuring our demise. This world wide design is NOT for the greater good, it is being manifested for the elite good of a few who see this world as a stage for their benefit and the populace as marionettes whose only worth is what they can do to benefit – them.  Children are an obstacle – so give them to the State.

Social Services has been given the right to take our children to be raised by the State. The consequences are proven disastrous; without the stimulus of a family’s love, a child’s brain actually fails to thrive and evolve. Black spaces exist where there should be brain matter. This is the evolution of human beings that a State family endorses.

I remember reading fervently about child development before I had my first. I wanted to be perfect, I wanted my children to be perfect. I read of a study done in an African village in which the newborn is attached by papoose to the mother every hour of the day until they could walk. The child then followed his mother and siblings everywhere as they gathered the fruits. The father would teach basic fishing and hunting skills. And these children thrived and excelled exceptionally. It was found that these children showed advanced motor skills, emotional skills, and intelligence. But it all changed. When the child turned five, it was the ritual to separate the child from family and send them to another village to be raised by the community. It was found that these same children whose advancement compared to developed societies was significantly greater, stagnated. They remained a five year old intellectually and emotionally – forever.

Who does it better – State or Family?

When our media creates a false reality (Plato), and our government houses families in a state controlled institution (Plato) and eradicates purpose, vision and creation evolution (Plato), we are left in a state of moronic evolution where art, free thought, free will, industrial and technological evolution, and freedom are the cost. It is a slow, constant chipping away and the only way to stop it – is to see it. Until we accept the ugliness that is suppressing society, we can not change it.

Family has power. It is this power that is feared more than anything else!

When my youngest child was in elementary school I took issue with a teacher who believed that it was her responsibility to teach her morality to my child. You see, my son had accidentally left his homework in his locker. He asked to retrieve it and the teacher refused. Instead, she chose to give him an “F”. She claimed that she was teaching my fourth grade son a valuable lesson for when he became a model citizen in the business world. She stated that such permission would never be granted an employee in reality, therefore it should not be granted my 11 year old. Of course, the fact that this woman had never worked in the ‘real world of business’ was never considered an issue…

In order to protest this morality, I had to stand before a tribunal of six school officials. I argued my case. Not surprising, the six did not back down. The State system of morality and ethics is NOT what I want impregnated on my children!

With the forfeiture of family, we are now forfeiting our children. Instead of aligning our philosophy with Aristotle, the state has intervened with Plato.

Pay attention. The role of family is the very structure of society. Without it, society is nothing more than a herd of cattle – but maybe that’s the agenda…

Who is minding your children?

The War of The Atheists

The Supreme Court refuses to define what is ‘religion’. If there is no legal definition, then how can Atheists assert they are not a religious organization. And how can an atheist organization obtain charitable foundation status? According to the IRS, “private foundations generally support other public charities or other foundations with grants.” However, there is status within the context of ‘educational’. This would only be available if it is to ‘make the public aware’, the moment the actions become politically motivated then the status has been breeched.

Murky is as murky does: “Rev. Rul. 68–263, 1968–1 C.B. 256, holds that the publication of material which discredits particular institutions and individuals on the basis of unsupported opinions and incomplete information about their affiliations is not educational.”

A foundation’s attempts to discredit Christians, Christian beliefs and churches would seem to be a – breech.

A quick overview of some of the form 990’s filed by these organizations shows some discrepancies or oddities. For example, one organization had one employee whose annual compensation was roughly 40% of donations, their cost for accounting services was exceedingly high, and their ‘consultants’ cost was also worrisome. The statement of time spent per week working for the organization was 105 hours – that would equate to 15 hours per day 7 days per week.

Another foundation whose contributions totalled $3.88million in 2013 holds a “Cash Balance” in their asset section of well over $11million. I’d say they were not spending their charitable contributions very well if they have accumulated such a ‘profit’. Their revenue for 2013 was $3,878,938 and their spending was $2,163,375 leaving an annual profit margin of 44%! That’s a lot of profit for a non-profit!

Could these foundations be construed to be ‘educating’ for the purpose of lobbying for a particular political outcome? “Exemption under IRC 501(c)(3) is precluded for those organizations which are substantially engaged in attempting to influence legislation…”

Is ‘educating’ people to convert to atheism – proselytizing?

Proselytize: to recruit or convert to a new faith, belief or cause… When these foundations use the media to denounce religion and the church and provide the option to convert to atheism, they are now the proselytizer.

At what point does proselytizing become harassment? When is freedom of speech breeched? The legal definition of freedom of speech is: “to express beliefs and ideas without unwarranted government restriction.” So if a person wants to announce their belief, it is an expression. But when does this concern the separation of church and state? It doesn’t because it is superceded by the Constitution which declares,Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.”

Therefore, making a law that abridges this freedom of speech, such as invoking separation of church and state, is unlawful, and the First Amendment shall take priority.

And ad in a newspaper harshly condemns Catholicism. So does ‘expressing or sharing’ your faith qualify as proselytizing? Legally, no. Because then it would make every atheist potentially criminal for even stating they are atheist – which is their ’cause’ or ‘faith’.

This has become such an explosive issue of late that it bears discussion. The legal definition states: atheism is the belief that gods do not or can not exist. The problem is the use of the word ‘belief’. The definition of ‘belief’ is; confidence in the truth or existence of something that is not immediately susceptible to rigorous proof. Given that an atheist can not ‘prove’ the belief that there is no God, their faith is a belief.

For a time atheists were actively seeking status as a religion, however, when the ramifications of this became apparent, they backed off. As a religion, no material in school could refer to the non-existence of God, no theory of evolution could be taught, discrimination cases would be launched, and science would have to be revealed as a ‘theory’ of faith. The concept was dropped immediately.

Why do people become atheists? The resounding answer is because they feel that God is not keeping the world safe and pure, and therefore He must not exist. Of course, this statement defers to ‘free will’. God created Adam and Eve with free will. Within this freedom, they sinned. We still have free will, we are free to sin or not to. Our sins create an unsafe and impure world. God wants us to be pure, but He can’t force us, he cries when we sin, it brings great grief. Grief is born of Love.

When did atheism become so far flung in your face antagonistic, arrogant and smug? Because it didn’t used to be so. I had a friend who said she objected to reciting in school, “…one nation under God…”. Okay, then don’t say it. At issue is the notion that we cater to the one instead of to the eight. At issue is the fact that 12% of the US population identify themselves as ‘atheists’.

Personally, I take no issue in people who desire to identify as Atheist, or Buddhist, or Hindu, or whatever they prefer. I take issue with the constant harassment and unethical attacks perpetrated against Christians so as to make us follow the doctrine of your nothingness. I take issue with the ridiculous idea that suing is the answer to all your problems. I take issue with the notion that you are so self consumed that it is all about you. It is hypocritical and bullying. Every blank, empty wall space that is not covered with religious identity is virtually the identity of Atheism.

At issue is the notion of tolerance and the absolute intolerance of atheists in their pursuit of emptiness for all.
