SINN FEIN AND SEXUAL ABUSE

SINN FEIN AND SEXUAL ABUSE


IRISH POLITICIANS - NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE BORDER - ARE AGGRESSIVELY ATTACKING SINN FEIN (the former political wing of the IRA) over what they call the "cover up" of sexual abuse by former members of the IRA (Irish Republican Army).

The attack is based upon the fact that when people went to the IRA and told them they had been sexually abused by an IRA member - the IRA convened their own "courts" to examine the allegations - rather than referring these matters to the police - the RUC and later The Northern Ireland Police Service.

Gerry Adams


The main victim in these allegations is Maria Cahill who claims that she did not get justice from the IRA. More damaging to Sinn Fein is the allegation by Maria that Gerry Adams - the Sinn Fein leader whom she spoke to - did not deliver "justice" to her.

Maria Cahill
For some reason - after a lapse of many years - Maria Cahill is waging a major public relations campaign against the IRA, Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams.

In one sense this could be understandable. Very often it takes many years for a victim of sexual abuse to arrive at the place where he/she can go public about their abuse and approach the authorities. If that is the case with Maria Cahill then she is doing nothing "unusual".

But I am worried about how other politicians have jumped so enthusiastically unto Maria's bandwagon.

Enda Kenny


In the last few days she has been to see the Irish prime minister (taoiseach) Enda Kenny and the Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson.

Peter Robinson
I have not seen any ONE victim of sexual abuse - or any NUMBER of victims of sexual abuse in Ireland receive so much publicity in such a short period and be received at government headquarters by so many politicians.

Sinn Fein is HATED by the political class both in Dublin and in Belfast.

Last week a survey placed Sinn Fein at 30% of the vote alongside Enda Kenny's Fine Gael party. 

There will be a general election in Ireland in the coming months and many, if not most of the politicians in Dublin are scared that Sinn Fein will make major inroads and could easily end up as one of two coalition parties forming the next Irish government. That would mean that Gerry Adams - much hated by Irish politicians - would be Deputy Prime Minister!

Enda Kenny wants to stay in power but it would literally kill him to have to form a coalition with Sinn Fein.

The other large Irish party - Fianna Fail - whose leader Michael Martin has been on Gerry Adams back has even more to fear from Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams.

Michael Martin
Michael Martin and successive Fianna Fail governments are almost singlehandly responsible to killing the Irish "celtic tiger" and bringing the country to its financial and econimic knees. 

They will have an almost impossible job getting back into government in any event - but with Sinn Fein taking so much of the vote their chances are even slimmer. 

The political ELITE in Ireland are running scared of Gerry Adams and Sinn Fein. Sinn Fein are changing the face of Irish politics forever.

The Irish people are EXTREMELY ANGRY with the Irish politicians in the Fine Gael, Finna Fail and Labour parties and at the next election the Irish people want to leave these three semi right wing, capitalist parties with very bloody noses.

Even many people who would not normally vote for Sinn Fein will vote for them this time around as a protest vote - a protest against political elitism, cronyism, political cynicism, contempt for the Irish people etc.

AND THAT IS WHY THE IRISH POLITICIANS ARE JUMPING ON THE MARIA CAHILL BAND WAGON.

They are trying to USE her to damage Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams and Sinn Fein's electoral chances.

In my opinion this is total political cynicism - and in fact another abuse of Maria Cahill.

Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and many others colluded in the physical, emotional, mental and sexual abuse of thousands of Irish children in Ireland from the late 1920s to the 1970's. They colluded by turning a blind eye and by their inaction.

Many members of political parties - especially Fianna Fail - were Roman Catholics first and citizens second.

Yes, priests brothers and nuns horribly abused Irish children - but they did it in institutions that were paid for and provided by successive Irish governments and politicians.

But now that Sinn Fein are threatening to knock them out of the game - the successors in these governments and political parties are now running around the country with Maria Cahill high on their shoulders.

If Maria Cahill was not as useful to the Irish political elite - as she is today - she would be waiting in a long queue of victims for a listening ear, support etc.

Maria Cahill says he was abused. We should believe her. Her allegations should be reported to the police in whatever jurisdiction they too place - presumably Belfast.

There is no statute of limitation on sexual abuse. Any abuser still alive can be prosecuted and if found guilty sent to prison.

If other crimes were committed by others or by members of the IRA or indeed Sinn Fein then they too can be investigated and prosecuted.

Maria Cahill should not be a POLITICAL FOOTBALL.

She should not allow herself to be a POLITICAL FOOTBALL.

Politicians should stop using her as a POLITICAL FOOTBALL.

Maria Cahill - as a victim - deserves ALL our understanding, support and encouragement. She deserves justice.

But I am left with the very uneasy feeing that these days she is being used as a POLITICAL PUPPET.

I am wondering who the puppeteers are?



Is it Enda Kenny, Michael Martin, Peter Robinson, the Irish Government, the British Government, the Northern Ireland unionists, the police, the secret services?

Or is it a combination of them all?

But I know something for definite - something stinks to high heaven!

MAKING POPES INTO SAINTS AND GODS!

MAKING POPES INTO SAINTS AND GODS


Pope Paul V1
THE CRAZY FASHION OF MAKING DECEASED POPES INTO SAINT CONTINUED YESTERDAY IN ROME WITH POPE FRANCIS DECLARING POPE PAUL V1 "BLESSED".

Its got to the point in Rome where the following seems to be the desired line of promotion:

Priest
Monsignor
Bishop
Archbishop
Cardinal
Pope
Saint




If this creeping "promotionalism" continues the next "logical" step would be for deceased popes to be declared "Assistant God", Deputy God and eventually God!




We would then have the situation whereby the pope is God's vicar on earth.....AND....God would eventually be declared the Pope's vicar in heaven!

It begs the question: "What is a saint"?

I like the two definitions of saints that I've often heard and used:

"A saint is an ordinary person who does ordinary things with extraordinary love"

And

"A saint is a sinner who kept trying".

Very few people in the Roman Catholic Church would be prepared to say that popes are either "ordinary" or "sinners" - even though we know from church history that many of the popes were among the worst sinners who ever lived - murderers, rapists, paedophiles, blasphemers, thieves, tyrants and liars.

But lets take two examples - Pope John Paul 11 who is already a saint - even though he is only 9 years dead and Pope Paul V1.

JOHN PAUL 11:

John Paul 11 was basically a Polish tyrant who had been used to exercising excessive power over the simple faith people of Poland.




When he became pope he did his best to exercise supreme authority over the bishops, priests and people of the Catholic Church.

He appointed Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict) as head of the modern Inquisition to secretly investigate Catholic theologians and silence them without giving them a fair and just hearing.

He turned himself into a "celebrity pope" by touring the world, kissing tarmacs and babies - but imposing a medieval style theology and discipline over the world's billion Roman Catholics.

When he was a guest in Nicaragua he publicly reprimanded a priest government minister - Ernesto Cardenal - waving a finger over him on the tarmac.




If I was Ernesto Cardenal I would have had a platoon of soldiers march him back on to his papal jet and given him ten minutes to be off Nicaraguan soil.

On that visit he shouted down millions of Nicaraguans who chanted "NO" to his right wing views.




John Paul 11 was not the friend of people. He was a friend of world governments and dictators - with the exception of Russia whom he grew up hating in Poland.




In my mind John Paul was / is no saint. He was a totalitarian dictator who practised good public relations. If there is a heaven, and if I get there, I will avoid him like the plague - IF he is there!  

POPE PAUL V1:

Pope Paul V1 was the only pope I ever met. We shook hands briefly at a papal audience in Rome. He only said one word to me - "couraggio" - courage.

I did like him because he seemed to be a mild man and was certainly not the dictator that John Paul 11 was.

But he really made a major cock up in 1968 over his encyclical on contraception - Humanae Vitae - which to this very day continues to alienate millions of Catholics. Maybe the dreaded Vatican curis was behind that?

And then there are the unresolved rumours about his active homosexuality. 

Of course I have no problem about his homosexuality. How could I?

But how can you be a secret gay pope, who reputedly had Vatican priests to out to procure young men for you; be surrounded by a mainly gay curia and still preside over a church that condemns gay people?




He may have been personally "trapped". But is not a good place to be.

And if that was your position would it not have better for your successors to leave you to God's infinite understanding and mercy - without proclaiming you a saint?

The Catholic Church says that saints are people that they hold up in front of us and invite us to imitate their thought, words, deeds and lives.

I think you are on very dangerous ground when you sanctify people who struggled with their humanity and weakness.

In any event most "saints" are not popes at all.

Real saints are:

1. Dedicated men and women who struggle over a lifetime to be good husbands / wives / partners and parents.




2. Men and women who stand up against injustice and corruption at the risk of being anhiliated.

3. Doctors, nurses and hospital workers who devote their lives to the NHS or to the people of poor places and wear themselves out in selfless service.




4. Family carers who give their lives to caring for their sick and disabled parents and family members - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Jesus said:

"IT IS HARDER FOR A RICH MAN TO MAKE HIS WAY INTO HEAVEN THAN IT IS FOR A CAMEL TO MAKE ITS WAY THROUGH THE EYE OF A NEEDLE"



Surely those "rich" must include those who live in papal apartments, apostolic palaces, curial residences, bishop's palaces, nunciatures and five star monasteries?  




Surely it must include those who wear daily, silk robes of white, crimson and purple and whose red leather slippers are hand made by Prada? 

Surely it must include those who profess "vows of poverty" but who want for nothing and who wine and dine at daily banquets?

"WHO got this plonk? I only drink Chateau Neuf de Pape"


Could it even include those who spend millions on refurbishing their palaces and who buy door handles worth £350 each and wallpaper at £100 a roll?

And then after all that - when they kick the bucket - they declare them SAINTS!!!

Its enough to make any real saint spin furiously in their grave!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:


JOE'S NO SAINT
(John D Sheridan)

Joe’s no saint,
And I ought to know
For I work at the bench alongside Joe.
He loses his temper just like another
- Days he’d bite the nose off his mother,
And when 1 call for a pint of plain
Joe’s not slow with ‘The same again.’
He gives an odd bob to the poor and needy
But you wouldn’t call him gospel-greed
 - You know what I mean?
So if there’s enquiries after he’s dead
I won’t swear to no haloes around his head,
For I never seen none. When all’s said and done
I don’t suppose they give haloes out
To fellows who like their bottle of stout.
All the same, though,
I’m glad that I work alongside Joe.
For in the morning time I lie on
Long after Guinness’s whistle is gone
And scarcely have time for a cup of tea
- As for prayers,
Well between you and me
The prayers I say is no great load -
A Hail Mary, maybe, on Conyngham Road
- You know how it is?
The horn blows on the stroke of eight
And them that’s not in time is late;
You mightn’t get a bus for ages,
But if you clock late they dock your wages.
Joe, though,
He’s never late at all,
Though he lives at the far end of Upper Whitehall:
And I happen to know
(For the wife’s cousin lives in the very same row)
That he sets his alarm for half-past six,
Shaves, and goes through the whole bag of tricks
Just like a Sunday,
Gets seven Mass in Gaeltacht Park
And catches the half-seven bus in the dark.
In ways, too, he’s not as well off as me,
For he can’t go back home for a cup of tea -
Just slips a flask in his overcoat pocket
And swallows it down while he fills in his docket.
I do see him munching his bread and cheese
When I’m getting into my dungarees.
There isn’t a thing about him then
To mark him off from the rest of men
- At least, there’s nothing that I can see.
But there must be something that’s hid from me
For it’s not every eight-o’clock-man can say
That he goes to the altar every day.
Maybe now you know
Why I’m glad I work alongside Joe.
For though I’m a Confraternity man
And struggle along the best I can
I haven’t much time for chapel or praying,
And some of the prayers that Joe does be saying
Those dark mornings must come my way.
For if Joe there prays enough for three
Who has more right to a tilly than me?
When my time comes and they lay me out
I won’t have much praying to boast about:
I don’t do much harm, but I don’t do much good,
And my beads have an easier time than they should,
So when Saint Peter rattles his keys
And says ‘What’s your record, if you please?’
I’ll answer ‘When I was down below
I worked at a bench alongside Joe.’
Joe is no saint with a haloed ring,
But I often think he’s the next best thing,
And the bus that he catches at half-past seven
Is bound for O'Connell Bridge ... and Heaven

- You know what I mean?

HUMOUR:




The Catholic Church held a conference on "Poverty" in a 5 star hotel where the assembled priests wined and dined of the best all week.

On the final night one old parish priests was standing with other priests - bursting with fine food, full of expensive wine, smoking a Cuban cigar warming a large XO cognac in his hand.

He said to his priest colleague: "If this was the conference on "Poverty" I can't wait until we have the one on "Celibacy"!

THE "CHURCH" JESUS WANTED

THE "CHURCH" JESUS WANTED


JESUS CHRIST DID NOT COME TO FOUND A CHURCH - HE CAME TO ANNOUNCE A KINGDOM - THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Jesus was not a Catholic - and especially not a Roman Catholic.




Jesus was a Jew and always remained a Jew. The early "Christians" were Jews who worshipped in the Jewish temple in Jerusalem and met in each other's homes to remember Jesus in the "Breaking of the Bread".

This situation pertained until the early Christians were persecuted in Jerusalem and they moved to Antioch. It was at Antioch that people were first called "Christians".

The first "Mother Church" was Jerusalem. The second "Mother Church" was Antioch. 

Rome was a later development.

APOSTLES, PRIESTS AND BISHOPS:

The first 12 Apostles were mainly married men, The Apostles were NOT priests or bishops. They were Apostles = founders of churches.

Jesus was NOT a priest in the sense of priesthood we understand today. In the spiritual / scriptural sense he was the High Priest of the New Covenant. 

The early Christian communities were "congregational" and democratic. The whole community made decisions. 

The first emergence of an office was the office of "deacon" - a servant - whose first job was to look after widows and orphans. 

Over time the office of "presbyter" (elder, priest) emerged as numbers got bigger and order needed to be maintained. Many Christian communities, including Rome, were run by this presbyteral group in consultation with the congregation. 

It took a further period of time for a senior or presiding presbyter to emerge. When it did emerge it was not in the form of the monarchical bishop we see today. 

ROME:

Peter was never a priest or a bishop and therefore you cannot call him "the first bishop of Rome". 

It seems he may have visited Rome and may have died in Rome with Paul. he archaeologists have never been able to say that the tombs of Peter and Paul under that Vatican, are in fact the tombs of those men at all. 

The earliest list of "bishops of Rome" is regarded by scholars as a 2nd century forgery.




A monarchial bishop of Rome can only be demonstrated from around the middle of the 2nd century in Bishop Anicetus who became the bishop of Rome in 155 AD.

That means that their is no historical evidence for the "popes" Rome says were popes - Linus; Anacletus; Clement 1; Evaristus; Alexander 1; Sixtus 1; Telephorus; Hyginus and Pius 1.

In any event the word "pope" was not used until 384 AD by Bishop Siricius who called himself pope! That is nearly the first 400 years of the Church WITHOUT a pope!

EMPIRE:

The early Christian Church was at its purest when it was a small persecuted church.

When Constantine (who was not himself a Christian) made Christianity the state religion the Church turned a very bad corner - turned away from Jesus Christ and towards the world. From that time onwards we had the coalition of church and state - which has led to many evils. 

To this day the Vatican is a state (although only a quarter of the size of Monaco) and has so called diplomatic relations with other states through papal nuncios.




Where in the New Testament can you find the justification for papal nuncios?

LATER DEVELOPMENTS:

Much of Roman Catholicism is not of the New Testament and is the result of later man made developments:

1. Obligatory celibacy for clergy.




2. The second class citizenship of women.
3. The papacy, the Vatican and canon law.
4. The Inquisitions and The Crusades.
5. Cardinals and archbishops.
6. The Church as a sponsor of art.
7. Dioceses and parishes.
8. Titular bishops.
9. Papal infallibility.
10. The Vatican Bank.




I could go on......




THE "CHURCH" JESUS ENVISAGED:

1. Disciples who worshipped God and who met in each other's homes for the Breaking of the Bread.
2. Communities in which there would be no "lord", "bosses" and servants - where all would be equal.
3. Communities that would look after the needy among them.
4. Communities that would stand up for justice.
5. Communities that would look forward to his Second Coming but in the meantime, by their love and actions make "heaven" a reality here and now.
6. Communities that would share all their possessions in common for the good of all.
7. Comunities that would have a special love for the sick; the hungry; the naked; the thirsty; the stranger and the prisoner.

If you like Christianity is two things:

1. A spirituality and a faith.

2. Christian Humanism.




GENUINE AND USEFUL TRADITIONS:

Do not get me wrong. I see no problem with the early and later church introducing things that served the Christian message and that served the Peopel of God.

I see nothing wrong with the development of clergy as servants of the people but not as overlords.

I see nothing wrong with having nice ceremonies and liturgies that lead us to God and service of brother and sister.

I see nothing wrong with sacraments that spiritualise and mark life's rites of passage.

I see nothing wrong with buildings that serve worship and the Christian message.

I see nothing wrong with the church having funds to serve the community.

HOWEVER:

THE QUESTION FOR CATHOLIC CHIRSTIANS TODAY IS THIS:

HOW CAN WE MAKE OUR WAY, BACK OVER TWO MILLENIA, FROM THE POWER AND GRANDEUR OF ROME TO THE INTEGRITY AND SIMPLICITY OF THE EARLY COMMUNITIES THAT MET IN JERUSALEM AND ANTIOCH?

THAT - IS THE CHALLENGE TO US - THE CHALLENGE FROM JESUS OF NAZARETH!

PS: I could just as easily write a very similiar blog about the so called "Protestant" churches.

TWO PRIEST LOVERS IN COURT OVER LOVE NEST

TWO PRIEST LOVERS IN COURT OVER LOVE NEST


Greg Harkin - Irish Independent
A CATHOLIC priest and a former Franciscan brother have been in a decade long battle over a house after their relationship broke down during a Christmas row, a court has heard.
Fr Gabriel Rosbotham, now a curate in Ballina, Co Mayo, and a former Defence Forces chaplain, is suing former lover and ex-cleric Hugo Crawford over part ownership of a cottage in a rural area close to Co Donegal’s Bluestack Mountains.
Father Gabriel Rosbotham - Curate - 
Donegal Town Circuit Civil Court heard how the two met at Galway University in the 1970s.
Mr Crawford said he joined the Franciscans in Killiney House, Dublin, in 1975, taking his vows as a brother there a year later.
Hugh Crawford - Former Franciscan

He met Fr Rosbotham, then also a Franciscan, again a decade later at Broc House in Donnybrook.
Judge Keenan Johnson heard claims that Mr Crawford left the Franciscans and bought Rose Cottage at Letterbarrow for IR£ 23,500 in 1994, paying a deposit of IR £5,000 from ‘pocket money’ he had saved whilst in the Franciscans.
Peter Nolan, barrister for Fr Rosbotham, alleged that the priest could not put his name on the mortgage and title deeds because he remained in the Franciscans under a vow of poverty. Mr Crawford, having left the Franciscans, was able to do so he alleged.
Mr Crawford accepted that his former partner had contributed towards Rose Cottage, helping with bills and paying for groceries on occasion, although he denied it was as often as Mr Nolan had put to him.
The former Franciscan brother, who decided not to enter the priesthood, insisted that Fr Rosbotham only contributed €1,700 towards mortgage payments.


Love nest

Under continuing cross-examination, Mr Crawford admitted writing a letter to First Active bank in September 2000 asking them to add Fr Rosbotham’s name to the title deeds as the priest was “helping with repayments of the loan”.
Asked why he did that, Mr Crawford told Mr Nolan: “I gave instructions to that effect but I never followed through.”
Mr Nolan asked the witness: “Were you in a relationship.” The witness replied: “Yes, we had a sexual relationship.”
Fr Rosbotham, who had given evidence when the case was part heard at the same court in July, 2013, was recalled to give further evidence yesterday on the circumstances of the break-up. “I felt like an absolute stranger at Rose Cottage. It didn’t seem to be your own. I was tired of the arguments, usually over his family who came and went as they pleased,” said the priest.



On St Stephen’s Day 2002, after another row over family, Fr Rosbotham left.
James O’Donnell, defending Mr Crawford, put it to the priest that he had been “living a lie”.
Fr Rosbotham replied: “Yes, I was. And so was Mr Crawford.”
In 1997 Fr Rosbotham left the Franciscans and became a Diocesan priest in Ballina.
Fr Gabriel Rosbotham, a curate in Ballina, Co Mayo, was given the award at a sitting of Donegal Circuit Civil Court this morning.
Judge Keenan Johnson said former Franciscan friar Hugo Crawford was entitled to a 73pc share in the property known as Rose Cottage in the town land of Letterbarrow, near Mountcharles.
Fr Rosbotham had sought a 50pc share of the house.
The court had heard yesterday that the two had been partners and had each paid costs towards the mortgage and upkeep of the house.
However Mr Crawford, who left the Franciscans in 1990s and bought the house in his name in 1994, had defended the claim.



The men had become partners around 1986 when they met in the Franciscan Order in Dublin.
The judge said he had found both witnesses to be "very credible and honest".
He went on: "They are both clear very decent men who still have considerable regard for each other. They have dedicated their lives to helping others, Fr Rosbotham as a priest and Mr Crawford as a carer.
"I think it is unfortunate that this matter had to be aired in court and it certainly strikes me as a case that was tailor-made for mediation. Had the parties agreed to mediation, the matter could have been dealt with in private, with each of the parties retaining ownership of the ultimate resolution."
Judge Johnson had calculated Fr Rosbotham's contribution to the home as €22,579, with Mr Crawford's contribution at €51,193.



Rounding to the nearest percentage, the Judge made his order.
He refused an application on behalf of Mr Crawford for a stay on the judgement and no order for costs was made.

Judge Johnson asked that a new valuation of the property be undertaken.

PAT'S COMMENTS:


I think that hese two men were foolish to let this matter go to open court and into the public domain and therefore the newspapers. They should both have agreed to mediation.

Father Gabriel Rosbotham who is still a curate in the parish of Ballina in the Diocese of Killala had most to lose by the publicity. 

The Bishop of Killala, John Flemming, must now decide what to do about Father Rosbotham.


Bishop John Flemming


After this very public court case you will find that the priests and people of Ballina and Mayo will be talking about it all.



I suppose if Father Rosbotham is now "celibate" Bishop Flemming and he could decide to sit the scandal out?


BUT THE BIGGER PROBLEM FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN IRELAND AND FURTHER AFIELD IS THAT THESE RELATIONS ARE NOT UNCOMMON.




IN FACT MANY - IF NOT MOST PRIESTS - ARE IN RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEN AND WOMEN.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME I HAVE COME ACROSS THE SITUATION WHERE A PRIEST AND HIS PARTNER HAVE INVESTED IN A "LOVE NEST".

SOMETIMES THE LOVE NEST IS A ROOM IN THE SEMINARY. SOMETIMES IT IS A PRESBYTERY. SOMETIMES IT IS A CONVENT. SOMETIMES IT IS A HOLIDAY CARAVAN.

NEANDERTHAL ROMAN CATHOLICS

NEANDERTHAL ROMAN CATHOLICS


The first pope to emerge from a cave !


TODAY I HAVE THE NAUSEATING EXPERIENCE OF LISTENING TO A NEANDERTHAL ROMAN CATHOLIC ATTEMPTING TO DEBATE THEOLOGY WITH THE 86 YEAR OLD GERMAN PROFESSOR OF THEOLOGY HANS KUNG - ARGUABLEY THE GREATEST THEOLOGIAN OF THE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURIES.

The Reverend Professor Hans Kung


The particular neanderthal in question was a self-righteous man called Peter D Williams from the UK right wing Roman Catholic organisation Catholic Voices UK.

Peter D Williams
PROFESSOR KUNG v MR WILLIAMS:

To put the debate into context and perspective it will be helpful for us to know the backgrounds and achievements of both "debaters".



(1) Mr Williams is a PART TIME THEOLOGY STUDENT.


(2) Professor Father Hans Kung: I publish a full list of Professor Kung's publication in English below - not to mention all his publications in German and in varous world languages. and a list of his awards.


If you would like to hear the debate bewteen Williams and Kung here is the link:

One of the greatest dangers facing the world today in FUNDAMENTALISM.




One of the greatest dangers facing religion, Christianity and Catholicism today is religious, Christian and Roman Catholic FUNDAMENTALISM.

In terms of the world, society and political life the enemies are people like the Republican Party in the USA; people like the Taliban and Islamic State in Islam; people like fundamentalist Jews in Israel; people like UKIP (sorry Sean) in the UK and other such groups.

In terms of Christianity the enemies are the "religious right" in the USA and people like fundamentalist Christians from the Continent of Africa in terms of the Anglican Communion. 




In terms of Catholicism / Roman Catholicism the dangerous people are:




1. Catholic Voices UK  

2. Catholic Voices in other countries.

3. Opus Dei Movement.

4. Neo Catechumenate movement.




5. Communion and Liberation movement.

6. Legionaries of Christ (whose priest founder was a drug addict and serial sexual abuser protected by Pope Paul 11.


Paul 11 supported Maciel - drug addict / abuser


7. Focolare movement.




As well as the above groups you have other dangerous neanderthal groups or religious orders, who have their own clergy:

1. Priestly Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP)


Cardinal Keith O'Brien - gay priest abuser - ordaining members of FSSP


2. Institute of Christ the King Sovereign King )ICRSS)

3. Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer.

4. Institute of the Good Shepherd )IGS)



5. Servants of Jesus and Mary (Servi Jesu et Mariae, SJM)

6. Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem (CRNJ)

7. Canons Reglar of Saint John Cantius (SJC)

8. Canons Regular of the Holy Cross.

9. Franternity of Saint Vincent Ferrer.

10. Personal Apostolic Administration of Saint John Mary Vianney (PAASJV)

11. Miles Christi (MC).




KEEP WELL AWAY FROM ALL THESE 17 GROUPS AND OTHERS LIKE THEM.

KEEP YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS AWAY FROM THEM TOO. THEY WILL SEDUCE THEM, BRAINWASH THEM AND TRY TO MAKE SURE YOU NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN.

Sadly under the pontificates of people like John  Paul 11 and Benedict these groups managed to infiltrate the Vatican and gain influence there - often by giving these two popes and others large sums of money. I am talking about millions and millions !!!


SAVING CATHOLICISM:

The battle is on to save Roman Catholicism from these neanderthal sects - who have attracted many followers.

They are NOT interested in listening to the voice of Jesus in the Gospels.

They want to renew the Church as an HUMAN EMPIRE.

They are racists. They are anti-semites. They are Protestant haters and sectarians. They are bigots. They are homophobes.

If they got their way the world would be ruled by them and the Vatican.

They would replace international law and international human rights with Roman Catholic canon law, doctrine and dogmas. 

They would be capable of launching a 21st century Inquisition.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN READ AND PRACTICE THE WRITINGS AND TEACHINGS OF JESUS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.




IF YOU WANT TO EMBRACE A CATHOLICISM FOR TODAY - A RATIONAL, HONEST, FAITH BASED, NOT OPPOSED-TO-SCIENCE-AND-KNOWLEDGE CATHOLICISM - THEN READ, STUDY AND PRAY ABOUT THE WRITINGS OF HANS KUNG.
