Regarding your statement: "You may find the Roman Catholic church to be inept, but they don't recruit, they don't evangelize, and they don't practice occult rituals; no more than Lutherans would." Surely you can't mean that? The RC Church has had a long history of sending out missionaries to recruit people to Christianity. And after reading Cathy Obrien's book "Trance Formation of America," and seeing the huge amounts of money (not to mention the shear volume of cases) the Catholic Church has had to pay out in settlements from priests raping children, I just can't understand how you can defend the RC Church the way you did in your letter to Jeremi. I've also heard personal testimony from a friend who's children were victims of SRA in a Catholic Church in my area of California.
I'd like to suggest that you research further the accusations of malfeasance in the RC Church.
P.S. Let's not forget "The Inquisition" either.
We're talking about modern times in America and not the Middle Ages or the Crusades. My reference was to the overall role and conduct of the RC church in America in the 19th and 20th century and how they had a long established track record of humanitarian, educational, and charity work that is unequaled by any other religious or philanthropic organization in America.
If you have a prejudice and bias against the Catholic church, then sure, it's easy to reach back in history and talk about the Spanish Inquisition or the long line of bad popes, warrior popes, Cardinal Richelieu, War of Roses, Spanish colonial conquests in Mexico, South America etc, etc. etc. Knock yourself out.
But that's not the statement I was addressing in my reply.
I have a number of books here about satanists and satanism, some written by promoters of satanism and others written by escapees from satanism or journalists who want to expose it. In some cases, I read about satanists going into a Catholic church late at night and performing a satanic ritual there. The satanists call it a Black Mass and they get off on performing a Black Mass inside a Catholic church in order to desecrate the name and symbolism of Jesus as much as possible.
Does that mean that the Catholic church condones satanic rituals in their churches at night? Does that mean that the priest or vicar in charge of that particular church was even aware that his church was invaded at night and used for satanic rituals?
You say you've heard personal testimony from a friend whose children were victims of SRA in a Catholic church in your area. Therefore the people in charge of that church or the Catholic church itself condones and supports SRA in their churches?
If that allegation is true then why hasn't your friend gone to the police, or the media, or contacted the Bishop in charge of that church and filed a complaint? If my kids were abused in an SRA incident in a Catholic church, I'd have a roomful of reporters at my house in a heartbeat and I wouldn't waste any time filing a huge lawsuit. Why hasn't she (or he) done that?
Considering the recent trend in news reports and on talk radio to bash Catholic priests as Pedophiles, Inc, I would think such a story would be all over the radio and in print.
I've heard on the radio about a large out-of-court settlement paid by the church a few months ago concerning charges of priest misconduct with altar boys that went back maybe 30 years or more. In fact, all of the radio talk that I've heard in the past few years concerning accusations of Catholic priests as pedophiles, seem to all refer to events that took place many decades ago. Not that it's OK, but just to set the perspective straight.
Also, you respond nicely to the Pedophiles, Inc. propaganda campaign by alluding to the "shear volume" of Catholic priest involved. Can you tell me more precisely how large that number is? Do you know? Can you provide the names of those convicted or successfully sued so I could add the names up and see if that number fits the description of sheer "volume"?
How many priests, for instance, were involved in the recent church settlement case? 50? 100? 1,000?
Or maybe it was 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 individuals?
How much real research have you done on this? You sound like a guy who is regurgitating the talking points and priest-bashing rhetoric I keep hearing on the radio, but what do you have in the way of verifiable facts to back up your negative assessment?
How many Talmudic rabbis have been been accused on the radio of perverse sexual misconduct with very young children, or teenagers, or even abuse of their own daughters? None, you say? Do you suppose that's because they are innocent of such things or maybe it's because they are a PROTECTED group who are shielded from such public accusations?
I'll repeat what I've already mentioned before: It's perfectly clear to me that there is an ORGANIZED media propaganda campaign underway for perhaps the past 4 or 5 years to characterize and smear Catholic priests as rampant "pedophiles" and by extension, cast aspersions on the entire Catholic church. That Illuminated Zionists are behind this media smear campaign is equally obvious to me because destroying Christianity is their ultimate goal and the priest-bashing rhetoric is a big gear in that propaganda machinery.
