Commission for Protection of Minors founded on pathological liars John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Pope Francis. Thanks to MR. Frederico Lombardi
Updated March 25, 2014
John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Francis are the worst pathological liars on the planet that they surpass the Devil! The new Commission for Protection of Minors is founded on specific citations from these three popes whose words are total contradictions of their actions.
Today is the feast of the Annunciation of Mary. In the Angelus, it is robotically recited: “The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit”. Jesuit priest Mr. Lombardi is making these three popes resemble angels by using the same word “declared” as in the Angelus - especially for John Paul II’s few 41 words about pedophile priests in 2002 which is an irony coming from the pope who has written the most number of books, encyclicals and speeches more than all popes combined. The main reason for JP2’s hasty canonization is because all priests are now required to preach on their Sunday homilies only what John Paul II wrote and said. When the UN condemned the Vatican for its crimes against children, they indirectly condemned John Paul II who was the pope most responsible for its cover-up for more than a quarter of a century. Only in the Vatican Catholic Church are criminals glorified. Criminal John Paul II with his JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army - will be addressed as “saint”.

When Gabriel the Archangel spoke, his words came true.
But what these three popes “declared”, they never performed them, the Cardinals and Bishops never followed them, and hence they are hollow holy words of Vatican Titanic deceits.
When these three Popes spoke, what they said never happened automatically - especially these three papal citations by Mr. Lombardi which we refute and highlight in yellow.
For human popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Francis (who are not angels), their actions speak louder than their words. History has recorded their actions that did not correspond to their words.

History does not lie, not in the Age of Google when the whole can see instantly the most famous popes-in-action. But Vatican Pied Pipers are highly paid to make it appear as if they happened in the cleverest deceitful words – special mention John L. Allen and Mr. Frederico Lombardi.
Priests must be called as “Mister”
Note that from now on, we call all priests “Mr.” In this article, we call Jesuit priest Frederico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesperson as “Mr.” and not “Father” because this title should be reserved only for real parents, true fathers who toil daily day-and-night for the welfare of their biological or adoptive children, read more here why priests should not be called “father” in John Paul II the Holy Father of Lies! http://popecrimes.blogspot.ca/2013/11/john-paul-ii-holy-father-of-lies.html
Mr. Frederico Lombardi sits all day in the lap-of-luxury in the billion dollars Vatican War Room as he and Opus Dei PR Stunt Army plan out daily strategies on how to deceive mankind about the Vatican Bank and sugar coat reports about pathological liars John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Pope Francis who are worse liars than the Devil whom Jesus called “the father of lies “. “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires... (John 8:44)
John Paul II pathological lies on his JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army
Jesuit Master of Deceits - Mr. Frederico Lombardi is trying to salvage the Vatican Titanic sunken deep in the ocean of moral bankruptcy by citing hollow holy words of the past devoid of any corresponding action. Lombardi cited the two past popes to justify the current pope: “As Blessed John Paul II declared, ‘People need to know that there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young…. So much pain, so much sorrow must lead to a holier priesthood, a holier episcopate, and a holier Church” (Address of John Paul II to the Cardinals of the United States, 23 April 2002). That was the only time John Paul II spoke or “declared” – in private to Cardinals - about the pedophile priests’ phenomenon that has erupted in Boston – before his trip to his last World Youth Day in Toronto in July 2002 and until his death in 2005. And those Cardinals did not obey his papal declaration because what they did was to spend millions of dollars in lawyers’ fees to protect pedophile priests from going to court or jail especially Cardinal Mahony in Los Angeles, read our article – Ex-Jesuit Gov.Jerry Brown vetoes SB131,invokes Roman law, perpetuates cover-up of 20th Century JP2 Army who stabs the heart of Jesus’ mother http://popecrimes.blogspot.ca/2013/08/california-bill-sb-131-must-win-next.html
So what did John Paul II do to make sure that “there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young”? Mr. Lombardi does not give any proof so here we’ll remind him.
Popes are the worst pathological liars on the planet because John Paul II never fired or defrocked one among the 80 pedophile priests in Boston whom Cardinal Bernard Law aided and abetted. From 2002 until his death in 2005, John Paul II had ample time to make sure that in Boston and in the USA and worldwide. John Paul II was pope for almost 27 years and he was the most traveled pope and he wrote miles of theology books but under his more than a quarter of a century watch, the United Nations condemned the Vatican for its crimes against children because he and the Vatican church was more concerned about its reputation than the welfare of children, read our related article - UN condemns Vatican for crimes against children.. HOORAH. 10 Reasons to abolish the papacy and why there should never be another pope http://popecrimes.blogspot.ca/2014/02/un-condemns-vatican-for-crimes-against.html
Furthermore, John Paul II was a pathological liar because he was endlessly glorifying Mr. Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legionaries of Christ, whom he knew full well was a serial pedophile as his victims were pursuing John Paul II’s attention for years through non-stop letters to the Vatican and books. Which is why Mr. Marcial Maciel is John Paul II’s evil Achilles Heel because together-in-person they worked at the Vatican Curia and, most of all, traveled five times to the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico, John Paul II’s most favorite holiest site of Mary’s apparition and the Legion’s and Opus Dei’s favorite and official Marian image. Read our related article, John Paul II the Holy Father of Lies! Cardinal Dziwisz book: “JPII knew nothing” about bestial pedophile priest Fr. Maciel is Vatican Titanic Deceits http://popecrimes.blogspot.ca/2013/11/john-paul-ii-holy-father-of-lies.html
Now that he will be canonized all these Jesuits Master of Deceits – especially Pope Francis - will only cite his few words and print his young photos instead of showing his ugly repugnant photos as the oldest pope in history. God allowed John Paul II to become so ugly to show the reality of his repugnant devilish papal soul that was tied with the giant millstone by St. Michael the Archangel at his last World Youth Day in Toronto, read Paris Arrow’s vision of St. Michael tying the giant millstone around John Paul II’S neck then dragging him and throwing him into a raging sea of fire http://jp2m.blogspot.ca/2006/08/john-paul-ii-pope-of-sodomy.html
John Paul II was only concerned with his narcissistic “holiness” following his narcissist fascist Holy Father Josemaria Escriva, founder of the Opus Dei, when he said, “So much pain, so much sorrow must lead to a holier priesthood, a holier episcopate, and a holier Church”. Vatican Holy Bull Shits!
John Paul II was referring to whose pain and whose sorrow? How can he talk about the pain and sorrow of victims when he refused to meet one of them? It’s like a doctor trying to treat a patient whom he never met except from hearsay? John Paul II adamantly refused to meet with the victims of pedophile priests in Boston, an hour’s flight from Toronto. He was too busy wallowing in the youth’s Opus Dei concocted chant of “JP2, we love you” that his papal ego couldn’t bother to meet and see the real faces of victims. Hence the thousands of pedophile priests in the USA and worldwide are aptly named after him as the JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army and the JP2 Army Prayer is the most important prayer more than his robotic hollow Rosary, read more about the Rosary here - John Paul II Millstone http://jp2m.blogspot.ca/ and Heil SatanasJP2 Patron Saint of Pedophiles, Pederasts Rapists-Priests!

Benedict XVI-RATzinger pathological liar par excellence
Likewise, Mr. Lombardi cites: In the words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, as we commit ourselves to the safeguarding of minors, we need “to establish the truth of what happened in the past, to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent it from occurring again, to ensure that the principles of justice are fully respected and, above all, to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these egregious crimes” (Pope Benedict XVI, Address to the Irish Bishops, 28 October 2006).
Mr. Lombardi knows full well that Benedict XVI refused to meet the Italian victims of the JP2 Army who walked from across Italy to the Vatican doorstep and were sent away by Vatican Swiss Guards. As the wealthiest “Holy Father” - he didn’t even offer them a bottle of water after their long journey, and he’s the wealthiest man on the planet how much would a bottle of water cost? read more here UN sets Benedict XVI Ratzinger’s records straight. Benedict refuses to meet Italian victims of JP2 Army John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army but meets with rare Cuban crocodile http://pope-ratz.blogspot.ca/2011/10/benedict-refuses-to-meet-italian.html
. The Vatican can have all the “holiness” these hypocritical popes are preaching about. That was the main goal of the Opus Dei founder, questionable saint Josemaria Escriva, the “holiness in daily life”. It’s all Vatican-bull-shit of holiness because the Opus Dei made these popes cold and heartless towards hundreds of little boys and girls sexually abused by bestial holy priests.
And when Benedict XVI was Cardinal Ratzinger he suppressed and oppressed all victims of pedophile priest in his capacity as Prefect for the CDF, read more here http://pope-ratz.blogspot.ca/
As for Pope Francis, as cardinal in Argentina, he likewise said nothing and did nothing to help victims who asked for his help, read our related article here Silence of Pope Francis-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio on Argentina 42 pedophile priests.

So now Our Lord Jesus Himself and St. Michael the Archangel has given us the best description of Pope Francis as the greatest pope deceiver and thief in the history of mankind, Pope Francis has the best description since Biblical Times, POPE FRANCIS the CON Christ. THIEF. Pretender & Impostor of Jesus. LIAR. CANNOT CLONE Jesus or dogs
This papal description is inspired by Jesus Christ Himself and St. Michael the Archangel who protect us with his flaming sword from the Vatican Opus Dei Mafia.

(Vatican Radio) In comments following Saturday’s announcement of the institution of the new Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi sj reaffirmed the commitment of Pope Francis’ predecessors, Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI to the safeguarding of minors. Fr. Lombardi cited Benedict XVI who said the Church needs “to establish the truth of what happened in the past, to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent it from occurring again, to ensure that the principles of justice are fully respected and, above all,to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these egregious crimes” (Pope Benedict XVI, Address to the Irish Bishops, 28 October 2006).

Listen to Tracey McClure's report:
Fr. Lombardi said “Pope Francis has made clear that the Church must hold the protection of minors amongst Her highest priorities,” and as part of that commitment, has established this new commission by appointing “several highly qualified persons who are committed to this issue.”
(COMMENT: Pope Francis is a pathological liar because when he was a Cardinal and most powerful Catholic in Argentina, Cardinal Bergoglio refused to meet with any victim of 42 accused pedophile priests, read here, Silence of Pope Francis-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio on Argentina accused 42 pedophile priests.

Apart from initially drafting the body’s Statute, the members, he said, will be called to propose names of “additional candidates, especially from other continents and countries, who can offer service to the Commission.”
Fr. Lombardi said the Church has a “critical role” to play in upholding what he called a “sacred responsibilityof ensuring the safety of young people." He explained the Commission will “take a multi-pronged approach to promoting youth protection, including: education regarding the exploitation of children; discipline of offenders; civil and canonical duties and responsibilities; and the development of best practices as they have emerged in society at large.”
Below please find the full transcript of Fr. Lombardi’s remarks:
As Blessed John Paul II declared, “People need to know that there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young…. So much pain, so much sorrow must lead to a holier priesthood, a holier episcopate, and a holier Church” (Address of John Paul II to the Cardinals of the United States, 23 April 2002).
(COMMENT: This is all the recorded words of John Paul II for the pope most traveled and who wrote the most number of books and encyclicals and mile-long speeches that must now be the official interpretation of the Word of God, John Paul II said nothing and did nothing for 27 years to save and protect children. Read our blog, John Paul II Millstone http://jp2m.blogspot.ca/ )
In the words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, as we commit ourselves to the safeguarding of minors, we need “to establish the truth of what happened in the past, to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent it from occurring again, to ensure that the principles of justice are fully respected and, above all, to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these egregious crimes” (Pope Benedict XVI, Address to the Irish Bishops, 28 October 2006).
(COMMENT: Benedict XVI refused to meet with victims even those who traveled –by foot- across Italy until the doorstep of the Vatican. He only met – under media pressure – to some Opus Dei handpicked gullible victims for whom he shed some crocodile tears. He also refused to meet with SNAP and American victims, read our blog Benedict XVI – RATzinger, God’s Rottweiler http://pope-ratz.blogspot.ca/)

10 REASONS TO ABOLISH THE PAPACY
10 Reasons why there should never be another Pope
After Joseph Ratzinger publicly announced his plans to retire, quite a few people who are aware of this website or the @Fire_the_PopeTwitter account remarked how I got my wish or, jokingly, how my website may have led to the first resignation of a pope in 600 years.
Yes, I’ve had Ratzinger’s picture prominently displayed on this site and, given his long record both as the pope and as the one person responsible for handling all sex-crime cases in the Church, I strongly believed him to be incompetent at best.
However, FireThePope doesn’t just mean fire Joseph Ratzinger. FireThePope isn’t a cause to bring down one man. FireThePope is an effort to expose the entire Roman Catholic Church, as is, as fraudulent and there is no better way to do that than to start at the top.
The Roman Catholic Church sets itself apart from all other religions, including Christian denominations, by claiming its head, the pope, is the successor of Peter and that Jesus anointed Peter to be the head of his church. The Church points to Matthew 16:13-20 to support this claim. Catholics conclude the Roman Catholic Church is the “one true church” of Jesus Christ and all other Protestant or non-Roman orthodox churches are inferior to it.
Roman Catholics call their church “the bride of Christ” and “Holy Mother Church”. These nicknames market the idea that Roman Catholicism dates back to the days of Jesus Christ and it – or “She”, as they say – is the very foundation of Christianity and all other religions are mere offshoots or sequels to Roman Catholicism.
Ultimately, Roman Catholicism rests solely on the supremacy of Peter and the apostles. Without the supremacy of Peter, there would be no pope. Without the supremacy of the apostles, there would be no priesthood as the Roman Church defines it. Without the superhuman powers of Catholic priests, bye-bye sacraments, indulgences, and the entire institution.
Today, let’s focus on the papacy. Following are ten reasons why there should never be another pope and, if there is, he should be completely ignored by the Catholic laity, the media, politicians, and the public at large.
Because the Vatican bases its very existence on a scene from the New Testament, it must also accept other verses of the NT in order to be consistent. Either the NT should be accepted as true, non-fictional accounts or not. Either those accounts must be taken literally or not. But, one cannot say this is a source of truth, inspired by the Holy Spirit and then pick and choose which passages the Church wants to follow or not.
1. The church of Jesus Christ in the bible was not a physical empire. Matthew 24:1-2 - ”Jesus left the temple precincts then, and his disciples came up and pointed out to him the buildings of the temple area. His comment was: ‘Do you see all these buildings? I assure you, not one stone will be left on another – it will all be torn down.’” 1 Corinthians 3:16 – “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the spirit of God dwells in you?” Also, Peter 2:5-9 – “Be yourselves as living stones built into a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” Jesus preached in homes and on hillsides, not in buildings. He only went in to temples to draw people out of them or to scold the church leaders. The wordcatholic, found in the bible with a lower-case c, means universal. In the first century, the wordchurch (also lower-case c) meant a society of men, women, and children who are spiritually – not necessarily physically – united to serve God. According to the NT, Jesus established the catholic church – a universal society of believers who would offer spiritualsacrifices. I explain below who really instituted the Roman Catholic Church, which requires material (pagan) sacrifices.
2. The church of Jesus Christ was not built upon one man. The idea that the church of Jesus was built upon one man is preposterous. Yet, that is what the Roman Church claims. Its only foundation is the notion that Peter was chosen by Jesus to be the first pope and that all popes are Peter’s successors, chosen by the Holy Spirit and infallible in all of their declarations. Roman Catholicism teaches that the pope, acting on behalf of the Church (notice the capital C indicating the Corporation) has the power and a duty to act as a mediator between the Creator and his creatures. It has been a long-held tradition that the Vatican, the Magisterium, and the clergy would interpret the bible for the laity. However, 1 Corinthians 3:11 reads, “For other foundation no one can lay, but that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ”. According to scripture, Jesus, not Peter, is the foundation of the Christian church. Jesus is also the sole mediator, so says 1 Timothy 2:5: ”And the truth is this: ‘God is one. One also is the mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, and who gave himself ransom for all.” According to the New Testament where Catholics turn to justify the existence of their Church, there is only one mediator between God and the people and that is Jesus Christ, not Peter and not Joseph Ratzinger.
3. The church of Jesus Christ in the bible did not have a pope.The word pope is not in the bible, where the Roman Church points to as justification for itself. The early church described in the New Testament speaks of bishops who were overseers or local supervisors of the effort to spread Christianity. They were not rulers over the people. No one bishop had authority over any other. No one bishop was the head of the effort. There was a bishop in many major cities, including one in Rome. It so happened that certain Roman emperors (namely Constantine and Charlemagne) elevated the position and authority of the bishop of Rome, specifically, because they had the power to do so and because it was convenient as Rome was the seat of power. Emperors appointed bishops and abbots and usually appointed members of aristocratic families. The idea of a pope – one bishop over all others – was a corrupt power grab by murderous dictators and had nothing to do with Jesus Christ or anything in the bible.
4. The Peter of the throne was not the apostle but an impostor. Remember, the apostle Peter originally went by the name of Simon. Then, he was referred to as Simon Peter. Jesus named him Peter at the rock because the name Peter – or Petros (Greek) means rock. This Peter was from Cyprus, according to the bible. But, there is another Simon in the bible, this one from Samaria and he was a troublemaker. Locals called him Simon the
The Circus of Nero continues.
Magician. He claimed to be able to do magic tricks and held The Circus of Nero in Vaticanus Hill. Simon Magnus claimed he was God (hence, the magic) and he became a nemesis, a rival, and a thorn in the side of the apostle Peter. There was such trouble between the two that Emperor Nero set up a contest to settle their differences. Simon Magnus was killed after being thrown from his chariot and so Nero, who had favored him, had Peter arrested and thrown in jail. If there was a pope on a throne in the days of the early church, it was not Peter the Apostle but Simon the Magician. Simon sat on a throne; Peter never did. Simon claimed to be God; Peter never did. Simon claimed to have supernatural powers; Peter never did. Simon Magnus even started going by the name Peter in order to confuse people. They both had the same name, they both died in the same year – 67 A.D., and they both had spent time in Rome. The proof that the Simon of Samaria, not Cyprus, sat on the throne in Rome is the documentation that Magnus stayed in Rome for many years at a time while the apostle came and went quite often.
5. The apostle Peter never considered himself God or Jesus Christ. Again, the idea of the papacy rests on the supremacy of Peter. The Roman Church claims the pope is “Christ’s (sole) representative on earth”. The Peter whom the popes are supposed to have succeeded was married with at least one child – a daughter. He never sat on a throne and he never claimed to have magic powers or to be infallible. He never claimed to be better or more important than the other apostles or early leaders of the Christian church. He never dressed in fancy clothes, he never wore a ring to be kissed, and he never insisted on the red carpet treatment. Acts 10:25-27: “As Peter entered, Cornelius went to meet him, dropped to his knees before him and bowed low. Peter said, ‘Get up! I am only a man myself.’” When Nero sentenced Peter to death by crucifixion, Peter insisted on hanging on the cross upside down because he was unworthy to die as Jesus died. Peter the apostle, claimed by the Church as the first pope was never a pope and his philosophy and practices, according to the New Testament, were a far contrast to those of the papacy no matter who is holding the title.
6. The Roman Catholic Church was not established until the 4th Century. Roman Catholics claim Peter of the bible was the first pope and that there is an unbroken line of popes stretching from biblical times to present-day. This claim is nothing but a re-writing of history. The Church needs that lineage in order to justify itself and the papacy yet it does not have the facts on its side so they have to create a new reality. What the Church
Not Jesus’ interpretation of “church”.
has done is go back and list anyone who was a bishop of Rome as a pope. The actual papacy didn’t begin until the Roman Catholic Church began and that wasn’t until the 4th Century with Pope Constantine I – the emperor – who ruled from the “chair of St. Peter” from 306-337. Constantine came to the rescue of Christians who were being persecuted by Emperor Diocletian. It’s not that he was overcome by compassion but realized he could take political advantage from the growing number of Christians. This ties the pagan Roman Empire to the Catholic Church whose members also worship objects and offer material sacrifices.
7. The papacy was on life support as recently as 1870. In the mid-19th Century, there was an effort to unify Italy which was split in two by the Papal States governed by the pope, then Pope Pius IX (the one who dreamed up Immaculate Conception). Victor Emmanuel II, the new King of Italy, had seized all of the Church-controlled territory except a small segment of Rome. Napoleon, who had previously been an ally of Emmanuel, protected the pope and by having some of his troops stand guard at the Vatican. When the Franco-Prussia War intensified, Napoleon pulled his troops out of Rome, leaving the pope defenseless. The Italian troops moved in and the pope lost all of his temporal (civil) power minus rule over the tiny territory of the Vatican. Emmanuel allowed the pope to keep the Vatican and freed him from Italian rule but the pope was defiant. Pius IX refused to recognize Emmanuel’s new kingdom and he voluntarily kept himself a prisoner of the Vatican. He cried anti-Catholic bias until support and donations poured in for him, including from Catholics in America. The empire of the Roman Church was all but lost in 1870. It took more deception to keep it alive.
8. The papacy was corruptly propped back up by a fascist dictator. In the 1920′s, the Italian government wished to settle its differences with the Church. At the time, the Prime Minister of Italy was Benito Mussolini.
He conspired with the Vatican to shut out populist factions in the country in order to amass more power and control for himself. The Vatican silenced priests who favored a more democratic government. In return, Mussolini gifted the Church by officially recognizing the Vatican as an independent and sovereign city-state. Within the borders of Italy, popes would receive diplomatic immunity and the Church would receive financial reparations for its loss of the Papal States. Also, Roman Catholicism would be the one state religion in Italy. These agreements were called the Lateran Pacts and they are what revived the much weakened papacy. Mussolini would go on to become one of history’s most brutal dictators. Today, Vatican City, the whole 0.2 square miles of it, is recognized by the United Nations as a sovereign city-state of which the pope is head.
9. The pope is an absolute monarch at a time when most educated and reasonable human beings believe in freedom, democracy, and accountability. In 2011, the world witnessed what is now referred to as The Arab Spring. Ordinary people protested – many to their deaths – for freedom, respect, and democratic elections. Many citizens of some nations in the Middle East had been oppressed for generations and they finally decided it was time to take a stand against tyranny. It has been said there is a natural hunger to live freely, no matter what part of the world one lives. The pope is an absolute monarch, only one of a few that still exist and certainly the most powerful. As such, and because he enjoys diplomatic immunity both in Italy and out, he is accountable to no one. The pope is elected but not by the people he represents as in a democracy. He is elected by the same men whom he appointed to the College of Cardinals. Once a pope takes office, he is unaccountable to anyone inside the Church or out. This type of power is contrary to what the New Testament described when Jesus turned tables on the clergy. The pope, like Simon Magnus, claims to be God. Only someone with a God-complex would claim to be above the law and every other human being.
10. The papacy is not inspired by the Holy Spirit. If anything, it would be inspired by the spirit of Lucifer. As construction workers ready the Vatican chimney for the upcoming puffs of white smoke or black,
rational human beings are expected to believe that the Holy Spirit is guiding the process of the papal conclave. When cardinals vote a certain way, we are told, it was because the Holy Spirit told them to. It’s time for a reality check. Many of the men who will be voting – or running – for the next pope have blood on their hands – blood ofchildren. Yet, we are supposed to believe they have an inside track to the Holy Spirit. From the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church, throughout its history, and including today, Roman Catholicism has been a corrupt empire disguised as a Christian religion. I’ve heard many people credit it merely because “it has been around for 2,000 years”. It hasn’t been around that long and does it matter that it has only survived as long has it has because it has succeeded in fooling gullible people? Does it matter that it has grown as large as it has because many of its converts joined only under the threat of death? Does it matter than the majority of Catholics were entered into the Church before the age of reason? Catholics are quick to remind us of “all the good the Church does”. There isn’t a tyrant in history that couldn’t claim the same. Evil almost always presents itself in disguise – as something good. When deception is the foundation of an institution, no amount of superficial acts that come out of it can make it good. Deeds and institutions can only be good if they are based in truth. Like it or not, the spirit that is guiding the Roman Catholic Church isn’t holy, it is evil. And the only way to kill a serpent is by chopping off its head.
