Catholic cover-up...The pope and a stench of evil.......(Hitchens says)

    The oldest christian church on earth with the tradition of the Apostle's must surely be run by Jesus, don't you think?

    How else and why else would Jesus permit it to rule for two millennia?

    The Watchtower Society is directly connected to invisible Jesus for the last 96 years printing books, magazines and articles which have accomplished a whole lot or other.

    Two thousand years of Catholicism and 96 years of Kingdom preaching by JW's must count for something more than incredibly dysfunctional men utterly self-deceived--don't ya think?

    Or is the whole notion of God running an organization or church just so much silly nonsense for the easily fooled?

    Jesus is either in charge of something or he is in charge of nothing.

    Which is it?

    dear Terry...

    it has been reported in the news that many of these cases which hitchens brought up were old cases (which doesn't lessen the trauma, of course) and that they were then as now to be brought to the attention of the bishops...not the pope.

    it is really only recently that the wickedness of sexual abuse is getting light shined on it...years ago this was NOT the case. even in the most well meaning circles it was hushed up and victims were not given the right to heal and seek justice. loving families and whole communities didn't know how to deal with the issue. this is no excuse it is reality. we can look back and say WE would do things differently but it doesn't alter what WAS done.

    what IS done from now on is what is important...hopefully a sense of justice is found and trust restored through a reconcilliation of victim and church.

    Jesus doesn't run "shows"...He works with individuals to change their hearts and help and heal broken ones. He gives strength to weak ones and convict hard ones.

    love michelle

    p.s. you have heard that an accounting begins in the "house/temple" of God?

    Jesus is not in charge of institutions, Terry. I do not subscribe to that definition of ekklesia. It seems to me that Jesus called us out of institutional religion. I don't have anyone killing animals for me anymore.

    The Most Powerful Man In The World?

    The "Black" Pope

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search Society of Jesus

    "The Superior General of the Society of Jesus is the official title of the leader of the Society of Jesus—the Roman Catholic religious order, also known as the Jesuits. He is generally addressed as Father General. The position carries the nickname of Black Pope, after his simple black priest's vestments, as contrasted to the white garb of the Pope. The current Superior General is the Reverend Father Adolfo Nicolás."

    "So, you thought you were pretty well informed by now about all of the main players on the "conspiracy" playing field? You’ve maybe been hearing for years about (or bumped into on your own) the various elements of society who control our world from behind the scenes.

    You’ve gotten familiar with the role played by, for instance, the Khazarian Zionists (who invented the word "Jew" to disguise their adopted heritage, as distinguished from the biblical Judeans), or the role played by the Banksters (banking gangsters) controlling the economies of the world, by the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the Committee of 300 (the 17 wealthiest so-called "elite" families)—the Rothschild's in England and Rockefellers in America and Bronfman's in Canada, and on and on, comprising the physical power structure of the New World Order puppets under the direction of darkly motivated, other-dimensional "master deceivers" commonly known as Lucifer or Satan and their "fallen angel" cohorts. While all of those details contribute to understanding the Larger Picture, what you are about to read fills in a most important Missing Link............"

    "America has been the targets of the Jesuits and Popes since 1776. With help of France who had banished the Jesuits from their country at that time, America fought for it's freedom against King George III and won. Thus the declaration of independence was established and then followed the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Monroe Doctrine to protect us from Jesuit infiltration and destruction of our Republic. But slowly the infiltrating Jesuits have come in and have now brought America under the control of the dictator in Rome (The White Pope who is under the control of the Black Pope and his jesuit army) keywords: nazi nazis catholic church catholicism skull and bones alex jones 9/11 911 conspiracy revelation bible christianity judaism death hell heaven society of jesus black pope masonry freemasons opus dei club of rome bilderberg cfr bohemian grove council of foreign relations order of death inquisitions crusades monks bishops cardinals knights of malta knights of columbus george bush cia fbi kg....."

    "It is reasonable to conclude that the action of the first beast, imposing a counterfeit calendar, will be repeated by the image of the beast. Currently, there is a revived movement to reform the Gregorian calendar.(26) This was first agitated with wide support in the 1930s-1940s,(27) before dying out in the 1950s.(28) On December 31, 2009, the Wall Street Journal published a well-researched article on calendar reform, presenting several possible calendar options.(29) The World Calendar Organization(30) and the Benedictine Perpetual Calendar(31) are only two of several proposed calendar reforms, each of which begins the year on SUNday. The goal is to implement a new calendar in 2012, because that year begins on SUNday. Calendar reform would also “fix” Easter – a long-held desire of the papacy.(32) The third angel’s message is a dire warning against worshipping the beast via use of his calendar........."

    Christopher Hitchens, like the other English virulent anti-Catholic Stephen Fry is a homosexual or has admitted to homomsexual relationships in the past and I wonder if the Church's stance on the "disorder" of homosexuality riles the prophet of sodomy Sir Christopher?

    Dear Maputo95,

    The Catholic Church and the WT both have a lamentable attitude to those who are gay, and it annoys me,as it may annoy Hitchins. but I do not think that should be used to detract from his campaign.

    More power to him.

    With absolute power comes absolute corruption.

    The Pope is an idea (mistake) whos time has run its course centuries ago.

    As a former RC and more "old catholic" than anythign else, the whole vatican heirarchy is just one big huge mistake in need of correcting.

    Of course convincing people of letting go their traditions is a task that is borderline immpossible.

    But a few lousy Popes in a roll and maybe the feeling will spread, who knows?

    The Pope and the Vatican are obsolete ( never should have started to be honest) and have been for far too long.

    people write and ask me why I seem to be "demonizing" Jaracz lately. It's because he "shuffled the deck" to keep the pedophiles protected. Just liike Ratzinger. To a fundamentalist, corporate interests are of supreme importance. Whole forests of common folk can be mowed down to save the image of the church.

    And if you believe the Catholic rhetoric on this, you are just as gullible as the Witnesses. They are a corporation of power-mongers and old cronies at the top. Ratzinger lives in a bubble of trouble.

    His days are numbered.

    Jaracz rots in his grave.

    Thank God THAT chapter is almost over.
