What You Didn’t Know About the Popes of Rome
By Mark Owen
On the evening of Saturday April 2, 2005, after receiving the Rite of Extreme Unction, Pope John Paul II passed away. At this time his chamberlain would have gone to the papal hospital bed and asked the Bishop of Rome a question, “Are you dead?” There would be no reply from the Pope. The chamberlain would then pick up a silver hammer and strike the Pope on the head and repeat his question, “Are you dead?” Again there would be no reply. The chamberlain would then thrice call out the Pope’s baptismal name. He would then declare the Pope to be dead.
This is the way the Church has determined papal deaths for centuries. This is the way of the world’s oldest monarchy.
Since 1763 the august Almanach de Gotha has been the ultimate authority on the royal houses of Europe. Listed under ‘Reigning Sovereign Houses’ is the Holy See. Therein is stated, “…the incumbent of the Holy See is considered by Christian sovereign families as the ‘Father of the Family of Kings,’ [and] his Holiness represents the OLDEST MONARCHY on earth…”
The triple sovereignty of the
Pope—Person, Holy See & Vatican City--is distinct in fact and in law.
Internationally, he is not subject to any authority on earth. His Cardinals
are considered to be Princes of the Church and peers of the sons of reigning
monarchs. Each diocese is considered to be a royal fiefdom. The word ‘diocese’
originally signified an administrative unit devised by the Emperor Diocletian,
a tyrant noted for his persecution of Christians.
Following are brief sketches of some of the more interesting holders of the title ‘Vicar of Christ’ (it should be noted that the Latin equivalent of the Greek ‘anti’ is ‘vicarius,’ from whence is derived the word ‘vicar’).
Without a doubt, there was one Pope who was completely mad. In 896 Stephen VII set in motion the trial of his rival, the late Pope Formosus who had been dead for 9 months at the time. Formosus’ corpse was dragged from its tomb and arrayed on a throne in the council chamber. The corpse, wrapped in a hair shirt, was provided with council, who wisely remained silent while Pope Stephen raved and screamed at it. The crime of Formosus was that he had crowned emperor one of the numerous illegitimate heirs of Charlemagne after first having performed the same office for a candidate favored by Stephen. After Stephen’s rant, the corpse was stripped of its clothes and its fingers were chopped off. It was then dragged through the palace and hurled from a balcony to a howling mob below who threw it into the Tiber. The body was later rescued by people sympathetic to Formosus and given a quiet burial. Stephen was strangled to death a few years later.
In 964 Pope Benedict V raped a young girl and absconded to Constantinople with the papal treasury only to reappear when the money ran out. Church historian Gerbert called Benedict ‘the most iniquitous of all the monsters of ungodliness.’ The pontiff was eventually slain by a jealous husband. His corpse, bearing a hundred dagger wounds, was dragged through the streets before being tossed into a cesspit.
In October 1032 the papal miter was purchased for the 11-year old Benedict IX. Upon reaching his 14th year, a chronicler wrote that Benedict had already surpassed in wantonness and profligacy all who had preceded him. He often had to leave Rome in a hurry.
Gregory VII was a master forger, surpassing even the great fraud known as the ‘Donation of Constantine,’ the document that created the Papal States. Gregory had an entire school of forgers turning out document after document bearing the papal seal of approval. These documents were later systematized in the mid-1100s in Bologna by Gratian, a Benedictine monk. He called his work the Decretum, or Code of Canon Law. It was peppered throughout with several centuries of forgeries along with Gratian’s own fictional additions. Gregory also formalized the celibacy doctrine in order to curtail the many gifts of church lands being given away to all of the illegitimate children of priests and bishops. According to Catholic historian Peter de Rosa in his book Vicars of Christ:
“Popes had mistresses as young as fifteen years of age, were guilty of incest and sexual perversions of every sort, had innumerable children, were murdered in the very act of adultery…In the old Catholic phrase, why be holier than the Pope?”
Another interesting figure was Alexander VI (formerly Rodrigo Borgia). He reigned from 1492-1503. Alexander committed his first murder at the age of 12. Upon assuming the Papal miter he cried, “I am Pope, Vicar of Christ!” In his Decline and Fall Gibbon referred to Alexander as the Tiberius of Rome. Like his predecessor Innocent VIII, Alexander sired many children, baptized them personally and officiated at their weddings in the Vatican. He had ten known illegitimate children (including the notorious Cesare and Lucrezia), by his favorite mistress Vannoza Catanei. When she faded, Borgia took the 15-year old Giulia Farnese. Farnese obtained a Cardinal’s red hat for her brother who later became Paul III.
Alexander was followed by Julius II who purchased the papacy with his own private fortune. He didn’t even pretend to be a Christian. A notorious womanizer who sired any number of bastards, Julius was so eaten away with syphilis that he couldn’t even expose his foot to be kissed.
Under Leo X (1513-21)--who cursed and excommunicated Martin Luther—specific prices were enumerated by the Roman Chancery for every imaginable crime. For instance, a deacon accused of murder could be absolved for 20 crowns. Once pardoned, he could not be prosecuted by civil authorities. Two hundred years earlier, John XXII had done much the same thing, setting prices for crimes ranging from incest to sodomy.
During his pontificate Innocent VIII (1484-92) granted a 20-year Butterbriefe indulgence to persons who met his price. For a sum, one could purchase the privilege of eating favorite dishes during Lent.
Leo X (Giovanni de Medici) commissioned the Dominican friar Tetzel to sell indulgences which released one from purgatory. Tetzel’s famous refrain went, “As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs!”
Pope Sixtus IV charged Roman brothels a Church tax. According to historian Will Durant, in 1490 there were 6800 registered prostitutes in Rome. Pius II declared that Rome was the only city run by bastards (the sons of Popes and Cardinals).
The iniquity of the various Popes has filled many books, and one has to wonder if the Church has been cursed from the very beginning. After all, Constantine leveled the Stadium of Caligula and the Temple of Apollo and used the stones and marble from them to erect the original basilica of Peter. Could he have been engaging in an act of sympathetic magic, as some have alleged? Constantine’s choice of building materials might account for the observation made in Rome by Martin Luther centuries later who declared, “If there is a Hell, Rome is built over it. It is an abyss from whence issues every kind of sin.”
Very brief mention should be made of the staggering scale of the Inquisition. In his History of the Inquisition, Canon Llorente, who was Secretary of the Inquistion in Madrid from 1790-92 estimated the number of condemned in Spain alone to have exceeded 3 million, with 300,000 burned at the stake. A Catholic historian comments on the events leading up to the suppression of the Spanish Inquisition:
“When Napoleon conquered Spain in 1808, a Polish officer in his army, Col. Lemanouski, reported that the Dominicans (in charge of the Inquisition) blockaded themselves in their monastery in Madrid. When Lemanouski’s troops forced an entry, the inquisitors denied the existence of any torture chambers. The soldiers searched the monastery and discovered them under the floors. The chambers were full of prisoners, all naked, many insane. The French troops, used to cruelty and blood, could not stomach the sight. They emptied the torture chambers, laid gunpowder to the monastery and blew the place up…”
Rome was truly drunk with the Martyr’s blood.
And the Papacy isn’t fairing much better in our modern age, and would appear to be in serious decline, if not in outright defeat.
In November 2000 Italian headlines screamed, “Devil Defeats Pope!” Il Messaggero reported that the Pope had been confronted by a teenage girl in the Vatican who screamed insults in a cavernous voice during an audience. John Paul attempted an exorcism but his ministrations had no effect on the girl.
Devils in the Vatican would come as no surprise to Msgr. Luigi Marinelli. His book Gone With the Wind at the Vatican fairly flew off the shelves in Italy, revealing as it did stories of money-laundering prelates, sex abuse and Satanic rituals performed within the walls of the Holy See.
Marinelli’s comments echo those of the late Fr. Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit and exorcist, whose 1990 book The Keys of this Blood contains the following disturbing information:
“Most frighteningly for John Paul, he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishop’s chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Paul VI's reign in 1963. Indeed, Paul had alluded somberly to “the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary”—an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony performed by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia—rites and practices—was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin in Italy and South Carolina in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.”
Ex-Jesuit Robert Kaiser serves to stir the pot with his recent book Clerical Error. Kaiser states that Malachi Martin was something of a confabulist who lived for 30 years as a kept man under the roof of Manhattan socialite Kakia Livanos, the ex-wife of Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos. Kaiser goes on to say that Martin stole his wife Mary from him at one point in the 60s when all three were quartered in Rome. Kaiser also surmises that Martin may have been a paid lobbyist for the American Jewish Committee.
Psychiatrist M. Scott Peck was a close associate of Martin and weighs in with many interesting comments on possession and exorcism in his new book Glimpses of the Devil. Peck declares Martin to have been most scrupulous in recounting the exorcisms described in Hostage to the Devil. However, according to Peck, although a formidable scholar and gifted polyglot (17 languages), Martin could be by turns a ‘pathological liar’ and a ‘leprechaun.’ Needless to say, the jury is still out on the legacy of Malachi Martin.
On the other hand, the verdict on the pederasty that is endemic to the Roman priesthood, is in. The Church paid out more than $1 billion in claims to victims of sex abuse by clergy in the 1990s alone. And the American branch offers a very disturbing treatment method to offenders. One startling example should suffice:
Fr. Jay Mullin was accused of molesting a boy more than 20 years ago in Boston. Then Cardinal Bernard Law commanded Mullin to be evaluated at St. Luke’s Institute. The Institute is a Washington clinic that was profiled in a Boston Globe article of February 24, 2002:
“…Mullin was flown south in 1992 to a clinic outside Washington, D.C. The church-run clinic had a huge collection of child pornography of varying degrees, which ranged from soft porn to hardcore S&M images, all featuring pre-teen boys and girls…”
This would have to rate as the most devilish form of aversion therapy ever known. It would be akin to treating alcoholics with copious quantities of vintage wine or bombarding junkies with free packets of China White heroin. Truly degenerate and depraved lunatics were running the asylum known as St. Lukes.
Notwithstanding the scandal and shock of the aforementioned, Rome carries on quietly with her program of world dominion. They lead the competition to establish the first one-world system that has ever existed. Their ultimate goal is global religious syncretism, and to eventually wield control and authority over every individual on earth. The human solidarity goals of the Roman Church are identical to the goals and objectives of the United Nations. This is why they are such an perfect fit. Rome only gives the appearance of objecting to the UN agenda. At the 1996 World Food Summit in Rome Cardinal Angelo Sodana pledged the Holy See’s support for the UNs humanistic ‘Programs of Action.’
Rome also has designs on Jerusalem.
For 46 years after Israel’s rebirth the Vatican refused to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist. But Rome wants to exert premier influence over Jerusalem, which will one day function as the capital of her World Church.
In a 1993 letter to the Pope, Shimon Peres promised to internationalize
Jerusalem, granting the UN political control of the Old City and the Vatican
hegemony over the holy sites within. This was confirmed by the Italian
newspaper La Stampa. In March 1995 the Israeli radio station Arutz Sheva was
leaked a cable from the Israeli Embassy in Rome, confirming the hand over of
Jerusalem to the Vatican.
The future Pope will establish his throne one day within the walls of the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. It is from here that he will rule his World Church.
And this day may not be as far off as many believe. The cornerstones for the Third Temple have already been quarried by the Jewish group known as the Temple Mount Faithful. They are extremely well financed and organized. They have also produced priestly vestments in accordance with scriptural outlines and are presently attempting to breed a perfect red heifer in anticipation of the coming dedication ceremonies. Obviously, Rome and the Temple Mount Faithful are headed for a showdown.
In a letter sent to the Vatican in January 2004, the TMF demanded that Pope John Paul return the Temple Menorah and other vessels and treasures removed in 70AD by Titus and taken to Rome, where they are presently held within the Secret Vatican Archives.

From Prof. Robert Faurisson:
Dear Mr Mueller,
John Paul II was the first pope mentioning the
[alleged Nazi] gas chambers. He did so in September
1990 in Jasna Gora, Poland, L'Osservatore Romano,
September 27, 1990.
There is an interesting and unexplored link between these two problems. Resolving the second can contribute to resolving the first. But that means Jews in the west renouncing our automatic right to be potential citizens of Israel.
Incidentally, the existence of flourishing Jewish communities such as Philo's across the Mediterranean and beyond, long before the fall of the second temple, upset the Zionist myth of "exile". This held that Jews went into exile after the fall of the second temple as a result of the Roman policy of forcible dispersal. The Zionist enterprise is supposed to overcome the dispersal 2,000 years later. But "dispersal" appears to be a much more "natural" historical condition.
More than a thousand years later, also in Egypt, we have a highly successful Jewish community in the newly built Islamic city of Cairo. Professor Shelomo Goitein, the brilliant scholar of Islamic Arab-Jewish relations, in his analysis of the "Geniza" documents discovered in a medieval synagogue, has left us a vivid insight of how the city's Jews saw "homeland". This is the high point of Islamic-Jewish relations symbolised by Saladin, the Islamic world's greatest leader, protecting Cairo from the Crusaders as well as expelling them from Jerusalem.
It is worth reminding ourselves that it was the European Crusaders who slaughtered the Jews (as well as Muslims, of course) in Jerusalem, and it was Saladin who invited them to return. But most Jews had no intention of living in Jerusalem. It was a religious and spiritual centre, not a "homeland". The communities felt "at home" in villages, towns and cities throughout the Islamic world.
Jews migrated from Europe to the Islamic world to escape the Crusades. Cairo's Jews readily offered help to their European co-religionists. According to Goitein, Islamic authorities made no attempt to impede this migration. What a contrast with our contemporary "civilised" attitudes to migration.
The Jews of early 20th-century Iraq have similar lessons for us. To this day, Iraqi Jews understandably boast about their uninterrupted 2,500-year history, from Babylon to Baghdad. Joining the Iraqi national movement to throw out the British immediately after the first world war, they certainly did not want the Zionists. Menahem Daniel, a Baghdadi Jewish notable, wrote to them in 1922: "You are regarded as a threat to Arab national life." He told them: please stay away.
Jewish culture flourished as part of Iraqi culture. Over a third of Iraq's top musicians were Jewish. In 1949 as the crisis for Iraq's Jews gathered pace, cynically engineered by both Israel and Britain, as well as Iraq's pro-British puppet government, the Jewish Chronicle, to its credit, reported on the determination of Iraq's Jews to hang on: "On the whole, Islamic tolerance has enabled Baghdadi Jews to flourish as a centre of learning and commerce. They and their kind would like to stay..."
It will be objected that the European Jewish experience, nevertheless, suggests the need for a securely Jewish homeland as a kind of insurance against another Holocaust. Yet here we have what is sometimes called the "lachrymose" view of Jewish history: the inevitability of Jewish suffering at the hands of non-Jews. As one writer has put it, there is a danger of the scar doing the work of the wound.
In truth, the European Jewish experience is far more complex. The Jewish response to the anti-semitic pogroms of the collapsing Tsarist Russian empire more than 100 years, ago deserves particular study. The Jewish mass migrations to western Europe and America begin here. The Zionists developed their best cadres here. Yet the astonishing levels of participation by Jews in the resistance to the Tsar speak of a different Jewish history in the making. A history where the Jewish value asserted with most consistency was solidarity between Jews and non-Jews in the resistance. The Jewish socialist Bund helped pioneer this value, which the Zionists simply could not understand.
The value of solidarity was built into the promise made to the Jews by the Enlightenment and the French revolution. It said you are welcome here as equal citizens in the land of your birth.
Is this not the expression of Jewish history in modern times? Are not the Jewish communities in Western Europe and America models of an enlightened assimilation where we can express our Jewish identities, as well as feeling at home in the lands of our birth?
The dispossession of the Palestinians reinforces this argument. How can we justify the right to Israeli citizenship when the Palestinians have no country?
Arab-Jewish reconciliation demands an alternative approach. It can legitimately point, borrowing an insight from Walter Benjamin, to "sparks of hope" from the past history of Arab-Jewish relations in the Middle East. Some Israelis understand this. Israeli intellectuals associated with the trend known as post-Zionism imagine with confidence a Jewish life in the area without a Zionist state. A tiny number of former Zionist leaders, such as Meron Benvenisti, one-time deputy mayor of Jerusalem, agree. He says the Zionist revolution is over. He suggests scrapping the law of return that allows Jews anywhere to become Israeli citizens.
He says he loves the land and it's an Arabic land. Perhaps the old Jewish Enlightenment thinkers who believed in assimilation were much more correct than even they realised. Imagine the great-great-grandchildren of European Jewish settlers in Palestine assimilating into Arabic culture, absorbing it and contributing to its development, some time this century.
A leap of faith? To be sure, but we Jews have always been rather good at that.

The Judas Iscariot of Our Time

Pope John Paul II: The Judas Iscariot of Our Time
The late Pope John Paul II was a crypto-rabbi and his pontificate
represented, for diabolical infiltrators, a supreme coup. He became the
first pope in the history of Christendom to enter an accursed synagogue,
the den of the Talmudic Pharisees. Orthodox Judaism esteems the Talmud
as its supreme guide. The Talmud states that Jesus Christ was a sorcerer
and the son of a whore named Miriam the hairdresser. The Talmud declares
that Jesus Christ is in hell being boiled in hot excrement. The Talmud
gloats over Christ's crucifixion and early death and says He got what He
John Paul II was delighted to engender scandal and confusion and enter
the very temple of the Pharisees that espoused these mortal sins of
calumny and blasphemy. He considered it one of the crowning "ecumenical"
achievements of his papacy, along with encouraging the practitioners of
Voodoo in Benin, Africa to remain in their bloody cult of demon worship
and ritual sacrifice, by declaring that Voodoo contains the "Seeds of
the Word"! (Cf. L'Osservatore Romano," 10 February 1993). Thanks to John
Paul's recognition of the "Seeds of the Word" in Voodoo, three years
after his visit, the government of Benin conferred upon Voodoo the
status of "an officially recognized religion." (cf. Associated Press
dispatch, January 11, 1996).
But it was in the matter of Judaism that this Pope earned his immunity
from the media of the West, who might quibble about his refusal to
priest women, but sat in unabashed awe at his unprecedented Talmudic
statements and doctrines. For example, in Vatican City on Halloween,
1997, John Paul II declared:"In the Christian world -- I am not saying
on the part of the Church as such --the wrong and unjust interpretations
of the New Testament relating to the Jewish people and their supposed
guilt [in Christ's death] circulated for too long, engendering
sentiments of hostility toward this people. This contributed to a
lulling of consciences, so that when Europe was engulfed by a wave of
persecutions inspired by a pagan anti-Semitism...the spiritual
resistance of many was not what humanity had a right to expect from the
disciples of Christ."
Could any more fraud be packed into one paragraph than the palimpsest of
Halloween masquerade that the late John Paul II managed in the preceding
statement? There is no ignominy to which this prelate would not stoop in
his obeisance to contemporary Talmudic Pharisees, who are the direct
spiritual heirs of the assassins of Jesus Christ.
"Wrong and unjust interpretations of the New Testament relating to the
Jewish people and their supposed guilt in Christ's death..."
"Supposed" guilt? The Talmud itself, in Sanhedrin 43a, admits that the
Jewish leadership had Christ killed. In fact, Sanhedrin 43a celebrates
Historic Catholicism has always believed in the "supposed guilt" of the
Judaic leadership in the killing of the Lord Jesus, and the killing of
the prophets, and that the Jewish leadership were contrary to all men.
That incidentally is not an "interpretation," it's a direct quote from
Sacred Scripture (I Thessalonians 2:14-15), which John Paul II negated
John Paul II made constant reference to the Nazi "Holocaust." Yet as a
Pole, he knew very well that a disproportionate number of the
perpetrators of an unsung holocaust against Polish Christians had been
Judaic Communists. In post-war Poland that nation was completely
dominated by Judaic communists: the torturer Jacek Rozanski, head of the
Secret Police; the Politboro commander Jacob Berman and commissars Minc,
Specht (Olszewski) and Spychalski. These men murdered or deported to
Kolyma and the other Arctic death camps, tens of thousands of Catholic
According to researcher John Sack, "In 1945 many Poles felt (and not
without reason) that Jews ran the Office of State Security...the chief
of the Office was Jacob Berman, a Jew, and all or almost all the
department heads were Jews."
Sack reported that 75% of the officers of the Communist Secret Police
in Silesia were Jews. He noted that many Jews in the Communist terror
apparatus in Poland changed their names to Polish ones like General
Romkowski, Colonel Rozanski, Capt. Studencki and Lt. Jurkowski. (cf.
John Sack, The New Republic, Feb. 14, 1994, p. 6).
In Poland, "...a disproportionate number of Communists were Jews. In
1930, at its peak, 35% of the members of the party were Jewish. In
Communist youth organizations, Jewish membership was even higher, while
Communists of Jewish origin occupied most of the seats on the central
committee. Communism appealed to some Jews because it opposed
anti-Semitism more vigorously than any other Polish party...Jewish
Communists reached their apogee in the years immediately after World War
Two, when the party leadership was totally in the hands of the prewar
Communist leadership that abhorred anti-Semitism." (Sheldon Kirshner,
The Canadian Jewish News, Nov. 5, 1992, p. 16).
The Catholic Primate of Poland at the time, Cardinal Hlond, a brave
prelate in a stalwart tradition of Christian resistance to Judaic
tyranny in Poland, so different from the traitorous philo-Judaism of the
late John Paul II, stated that Polish Catholics felt resentment 'due to
the Jews who today occupy leading positions in Poland's (Communist)
government and endeavor to introduce a governmental structure that the
majority of Poles do not wish to have." (Ibid., Kirshner).
As Piotr S. Wandycz of Yale University observed, "The average Pole could
not but notice in the Stalinist era that the two most powerful men in
the country--Berman and Minc--were both Jewish as was the dreaded
security official Rozanski." (N.Y. Review of Books, Aug. 18, 1983, p.
John Paul II covered all of this up. He was silent in the face of this
holocaust against his own Christian countrymen. His silence was
deafening. He turned what happened to the so-called "Jews" (more
properly, Khazars), during World War Two --both real and imagined-- into
the central ontological event of the 20th century, while helping to
whitewash the Judaic-Communist holocaust against Christians. He even
went so far as to order crosses erected in Auschwitz by Polish Catholics
to be torn down at rabbinic insistence, with some of the Catholics
arrested and jailed for refusing the order.
As the acknowledged representative of Christians in the world, whose
side was this Pope really on? Obviously he was no advocate of Christ or
of the sufferings Christ's followers experienced at the hands of
John Paul II was completely smitten with modernism and the potentates of
toxic modernity, the rabbinic world leadership. He catered to and pimped
The Pope defended and advanced the Pharisees' cause and falsifies and
betrays the Christian. One must ask at this juncture, was he the Vicar
of Christ or of the Anti-Christ?
On Nov. 2, 1997 the Vatican declared, ``Christians who yield to
anti-Judaism offend God and the church itself.''
Since the Jewish religion is based on the Talmud, which Christ condemned
in its oral form (Mishnah) in Mark 7:1-13 as the "tradition of the
Elders," the Pope's Vatican symposium was declaring that to take a
position of anti-Judaism and oppose the teachings of the Pharisees and
their Talmudic traditions of the Elders--"offends God." But how can such
a position offend Jesus Christ when He advocated it Himself?
Has it ever been more clear that this pope was preaching a false gospel?
John Paul the Judas, herded gullible Catholics into the pen of Pharisaic
annihilation. Do they imagine that the Vatican worships Jesus Christ
when such a doctrine is preached by their leader? Jesus foretold, "In
vain do they worship me" (Matthew 15:9). Jesus called the Jewish
leadership of His day, "the children of hell" (Matthew 23:15).
The rabbinic leadership has not changed in 2,000 years. Those who expose
their evil--then as now--do the very work that Jesus Christ did. In many
cases the anathemas John Paul II hurled at "anti-semites" were in fact
aimed at the person of Jesus Christ Himself.
By upholding the interpretation of the New Testament promulgated by the
modern Scribes and Pharisees, and discarding the traditional Christian
one, John Paul II virtually admitted, by his actions and pronouncements,
that the Pharisees were right to crucify Christ.
It is clear that in actuality, John Paul II was not the "Vicar of Christ
on earth" but a crypto-rabbi. To view a documentary photograph of him in
Warsaw, Poland, taking orders from his authentic earthly boss, see:
On Sunday, March 26, 2000 the Pope prayed at the "Western" or "Wailing
Wall" in Jerusalem, making remarks betraying Christianity and begging
the forgiveness of the heirs of Caiphas.
While in Jerusalem, the Pope bowed to the rabbinic leaders of the modern
Pharisees who are unrepentant concerning the cosmic crime of deicide
which their ideological forefathers perpetrated. They received no
lecture or stern words of any kind from John Paul II about the need to
repent and about the dread judgment they are under.
He mentioned nothing concerning the Israeli holocaust against the
Palestinians, but contented himself with making obeisance to the wicked
rabbis who supply the rationale for Israeli war crimes against
Palestinian civilians by terming the Palestinian people "snakes" and
"Amalek," and confirming the Talmudic injunctions that hold that the
killing of a gentile is not murder, and that the Judaic killer in such
a case is "exempt from punishment" (Sanhedrin 57a).
In Jerusalem, the Pope placed a prayer inside the "wailing-wall." The
text of this prayer reads: "God of our fathers, you chose Abraham and
his descendants to bring your name to the nations. We are deeply
saddened by the behavior of those who in the course of history have
caused these children of yours to suffer. And asking your forgiveness,
we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood with the people of
the covenant." -- Jerusalem, 26.3.2000. Joannes Paulus II. ( The note,
written in English, was later moved to the Israeli Yad Vashem Holocaust
museum to be preserved).
Not one word about Jesus Christ, His Crucifixion or Resurrection in this
note, just a nonsensical supposition that the Khazar Zionists from
eastern Europe who have scourged the Middle East with blood and fire,
and who have as their supreme holy book not the Bible but the Talmud,
are somehow "the children of Abraham and the people of the covenant."
It is a strange covenant that includes neither Christ nor the Bible.
John Paul II was idolizing a nation of people, putting them on a
pedestal for worship, exactly as the Talmud does. What a sad, sick joke
on Christianity. John Paul II betrayed the Gospel not for 30 pieces of
silver but for media approval and fame. The world loves him.
It is a tragic characteristic of our time that our people are drawn to
love, honor and worship their own executioners. From the hysterical
adulation for Ronald Reagan, who, in 1986, keelhauled the ailing,
87-year-old anti-communist Christian patriot Andrija Artukovic -- on a
hospital gurney no less -- to the waiting arms of Tito's Communist
ghouls in Yugoslavia; to the crypto-rabbi John Paul II, it would appear
that hero worship nowadays has more to do with mind control and
schizophrenia than an authentic admiration for gallant resistance to the
world, the flesh and the devil.

Your Donation = Our Survival
An Evangelical Tribute to John Paul II
Submission by Rev. Rob Schenck, President of the
National Clergy Council:
If Evangelicals like me could have claimed a pope as our own, he would have been John Paul II. Unlike any other pontiff in history, this one looked, acted and even sounded a lot like an Evangelical. As a result, he did more to bring together conservative Bible-believing Christians like me together in common cause with Catholics, both lay and clergy, than anyone else in the Roman church's history.
John Paul looked like one of us in many ways. He smiled a lot, displaying what we Evangelicals call, "the joy of the Lord." He had an obvious love of Christ that showed unapologetically in his bright eyes. We could tell that his Christian faith was first passionate before it was cerebral; we Evangelicals like that.
But John Paul did more than look like and Evangelical, he acted like one, too. He traveled the world, preaching and teaching. Evangelicals had previously held an image of the pope as more of a monarch, or worse, an emperor, seated pompously on his gilded throne behind the marbled walls of the Vatican palace, separated and insulated from the common people. This pope broke that stereotype by crisscrossing the globe, preaching "Jesus Christ" to throngs of people in settings that looked more like Billy Graham crusades than the stuffy, mystical high-masses so strange to "outsiders" like us.
Most importantly, though, John Paul II sounded like an Evangelical. Central to almost everything he wrote, spoke and preached were Jesus Christ and His Gospelâ?" the "Evangel" from which we Evangelicals derive our identity. One of my favorites quotes of John Paul is from his encyclical, Ut Unim Sint, "That They May Be One,"
"The Cross! An anti-Christian outlook seeks to minimize the Cross, to empty it of its meaning, and to deny that in it man has the source of his new life.
That's language we Evangelicals understand and with which we identify.
I should mention one more extraordinary contribution that John Paul II made to help us Evangelicals appreciate our Roman Catholic counterparts: he invited us "in." Prior to John Paul II, Evangelicals were largely considered by Catholics to be "heretics" who were outside the "true church." John Paul instead affirmed us as, "brothers and sisters in the Lord."
Sure, great differences still exist and will remain between Evangelicals and Catholics, but I could say almost as much about my differences with other Evangelicals. What I would rather say is that at no other time in history have Catholics and Evangelicals come closer together, recognizing one another as Christian brothers and sisters, and at no other time in history have we shared so much in common cause. Whether it is the sanctity of human life, the sanctity of marriage and the family, or the public acknowledgement of our faith, we have discovered that the things that really matter most in these desperate times are held in common by Catholics and Evangelicals.
I, for one Evangelical, will greatly miss John Paul II. But I suspect that when we all get to heaven, and both Evangelicals and Catholics are surprised by the numbers of each that made it there, well find this pope winking from a corner.

If this is too unseemly to you, I understand. But if you can accurately predict who the next Pope will be, before John Paul II's burial, I will donate $200 to your work.

Keep your money. I cannot accurately predict who the next pope will be.
A top American Jesuit suggested to me that the next pope would be a pragmatic, older Italian. Some Conservatives say the new pontiff will be the black man, Francis Arinze, from Nigeria (he's alleged to be conservative). The Western media seem to be betting on a Latin American cardinal. In France, Cardinal Lustiger, an ethnic Khazar in whose eyes Auschwitz trumps Calvary, is also considered an attractive choice.
Whomever it may be, chances are he'll be another charismatic type of Anti-Christ, so what difference does it make? No true Christian will make the grade.
It is like the Republicans and the Democrats, or should I say, the Ins and the Outs. One gang is in and the other is out; that's their main distinction. One Anti-Christ has died in the shadow of the stone phallus of ancient Egypt and another will rise to take Sixtus the V (with several honorable exceptions, among them Leo XIII and Pius X). There was a book published in the 1970s titled, "It Didn't Start with Watergate." The Golden Gate bridge is for sale to anyone who thinks that the rot in the Roman Catholic Church started with Vatican II.
The Vatican is a ghetto, a flea market, an auction house. Look at their public parading of the pope's corpse, like a carnival sideshow Injun Joe. It's the first time I have ever felt sorry for the guy, when I saw his stuffed and costumed remains tossed in the street to be ogled by throngs of camera-wielding thrill-seekers. In the Eternal City the eternal pagan psychodrama marches on.
Look at the 1978 conclave that elected Albino Luciani (Pope John Paul I). Malachi Martin told me that Luciani was elected because Cardinal Benelli had blackmailed several other papal candidates, by circulating dossiers at the conclave containing photos of them with "their boys, their girls and their masonic papers." Martin was a double agent and everything he said must be taken cum grano salis. Still, this particular account has the ring of truth about it. The Vatican has everything to do with chess and Niccolo Machiavelli and almost nothing to do with Jesus Christ, except as a kind of advertising gimmick. If you study chess and read Machiavelli, then you will know something of the Vatican.
St. Peter's basilica is breathtakingly beautiful--an eighth wonder of the world-- but deformed by gross improprieties, like the gratuitous genitalia on the "angels" on Bernini's chapel pilasters, to say nothing of the obscene nudes on Canova's "Stuart memorial." The magnificent Sistine chapel is a veritable monument to nudity, to what John Paul II called, in the modernist argot peculiar to him, "the theology of the human body."
Michelangelo's masterworks would be appropriate anywhere, except in the House set aside for the pure worship of the God of Israel. And outside, in St. Peter's Square, sits the ensign of Pharaonic Egypt, the monstrous obelisk which dominates the entire exterior.
I am not the first to be put-off by the Vatican. John Henry Newman avoided it like the plague, and Ronald Knox was also repelled. Evelyn Waugh describes Knox's reaction: "At Easteride in 1907 he went to Rome with his brothers, followed the customary round of classical sight-seeing, was unimpressed by the baroque or by papal magnificence..." Waugh is here being diplomatic. In fact, Knox was appalled. Yet he became a Catholic anyway, in spite of the mess at the top, for the sake of the root that had not yet been extirpated.
The counterfeit papacy of John Paul II was a product of the superstar system of the media and, in a larger sense, of the archaeoastronomy of antique Egypt. I am not, by the way, declaring that Catholicism is occult, since it contains within it the seeds of the early Church. No more than I would argue that the American Republic is evil because of what usurpers from Lincoln to Wilson to George W. Bush have done in the name of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Usurpation is a horrid thing, but it is not new. Treason doth ever prosper, for if it prosper, none dare call it treason. The successful traitors write the history books, rule the airwaves, the palaces and the cathedrals. This is an old story. The Tudors employed no less a propagandist than William Shakespeare, who forever blackened the reputation of the rightful king of England, Richard III, and sanctioned the theft of the Crown from the House of Plantagenet. To paraphrase Hegel, what history teaches is this: that people have never learned anything from history.
We should be vigilant against usurpers, but we fail. Perhaps as a result of all those years of looking at television, we are smitten by the "leaven of the Pharisees" -- the outward show, the spectacle and theatrics. A masquerader "disguised by fearful art" (showmanship is a type of magic, i.e. "fearful art"), is pawned off on a gullible public as a holy man and even the "Vicar of Christ on earth."
In this vein, I conclude with a poem by Joyce Kilmer. I am much enamored of the World War I generation of soldier-poets; brilliant and beguiling youths like Kilmer (1886-1918), Patrick Shaw-Stewart (1888-1917), and in particular Wilfred Owen (1893-1918), who refused to hate the Germans (cf. "At a Calvary Near The Ancre" http://www.english.emory.edu/LostPoets/Owen.html), and whose "The Parable of the Old Man and the Young," is among the most devastating and savage evocations of rage at the fratricidal butchery of that wicked war, which would slay him, Shaw-Stewart, Kilmer and "half the seed of Europe."
With startling prescience, Joyce Kilmer's 1917 work, "The Robe of Christ" seems to foretell the coming of Karol Wojtyla, i.e. John Paul II, the "man of lies," who, by "fearful art," would gain the papacy ("win the robe of Christ)" by posing as a wounded type of alter Christus.
The Robe of Christ
by Joyce Kilmer
At the foot of the Cross on Calvary
Three soldiers sat and diced,
And one of them was the Devil
And he won the Robe of Christ...
...I saw him through a thousand veils,
And has not this sufficed?
Now, must I look on the Devil robed
In the radiant Robe of Christ?
He comes, and his face is sad and mild,
With thorns his head is crowned;
There are great bleeding wounds in his feet,
And in each hand a wound.
How can I tell, who am a fool,
If this be Christ or no?
Those bleeding hands outstretched to me!
Those eyes that love me so!
I see the Robe -- I look -- I hope --
I fear -- but there is one
Who will direct my troubled mind;
Christ's Mother knows her Son.
O Mother of Good Counsel, lend
Intelligence to me!
Encompass me with wisdom,
Thou Tower of Ivory!
"This is the Man of Lies," she says,
"Disguised with fearful art:
He has the wounded hands and feet,
But not the wounded heart."
Beside the Cross on Calvary
She watched them as they diced.
She saw the Devil join the game
And win the Robe of Christ.
Jewish-Controlled UPI Promoting Jew for Pope
By Michael Collins Piper
Author of FINAL JUDGMENT, The HIGH PRIESTS of WAR, and THE NEW JERUSALEM: ZIONIST POWER IN AMERICA
John Paul II was dead less than hours, but UPI quickly rushed out its first installment "in a series of articles on the men most likely to follow John Paul II as Pope" touting Jean-Marie Lustiger as "the second Jewish Pope."
Although Lustiger recently stepped down as Archbishop of Paris, he still remains a member of the College of Cardinals and is eligible for elevation to the Papal throne. Despite his age, he is still under 80 years old (the cutoff age for elevation to the Papacy).
Lustiger has been repeatedly quoted as saying that although he 'converted" to Catholicism at age 14, he remains a Jew.
And according to one prominent Catholic layman and journalist who is active in the American nationalist movement, many news reports of recent months have been suggesting that the College of Cardinals is likely to opt for an older "caretaker" rather than a younger Pope.
Don't be afraid to place a bet on Lustiger.
That UPI would carry this article is VERY interesting, inasmuch as UPI is owned by the Unification Church of pro-Israel zealot Sun Myung Moon, the Korean cult leader, and one of its key figures in recent years has been Arnaud DeBorchgrave, a French "nobleman" who is said to be an in-law or relative of the Rothschilds.
The UPI article, available through a "Google News" search" follows.
Jean-Marie Lustiger: Second Jewish Pope?
By UWE SIEMON-NETTO
UPI Religion Editor
(This is one in a series of articles on the men most likely to follow John Paul II as pope.)
France was stunned when Pope John Paul II named Jewish-born Jean-Marie Lustiger as archbishop of Paris. "You are the fruit of the Holy Father's prayer," the pontiff's secretary told him. Could it be that the cardinal-electors will now stun the world by choosing Lustiger as next pope, the first Jew to occupy St. Peter's See since Peter himself?
Lustiger, both whose parents died in Auschwitz, has always insisted that, though he had converted to Christianity at age 14, he was and remained a Jew: "I was born a Jew and so I am. For me, the vocation of Israel is to bring light to the goyim. That's my hope, and I believe Christianity is the means for achieving it."
There is a remarkable conversion dialectic in Lustiger's life. He had himself baptized because he was so impressed with the Catholic faith of his foster parents, who brought him up after his real parents had been deported from Paris in 1940. In return, Lustiger has made it his mission to convert -- or, rather, re-evangelize -- France and by extension Europe in an unorthodox way.
While a parish priest, Lustiger wrote a memorandum to archbishop of Paris, Cardinal François Marty. In it he proposed a revolutionary strategy for bringing Christianity back to France, once called the First Daughter of the Church. He insisted the church must abandon any pretense of power and convert culture instead.
As George Weigel, the pope's biographer, commented on this plan: "This meant taking the gospel straight to the molders and shapers of French high culture, the thoroughly secularized French intelligentsia. The hardest cases should be put first and France should be reconverted from the head down."
According to Weigel, Lustiger believes this memorandum must have found its way to the Vatican and contributed to his promotions to bishop of Orleans in 1979, archbishop of Paris in 1981 and cardinal in 1983.
If so, Lustiger's strategy is bearing fruit. No sooner did he ascend to the Paris See than he targeted intellectuals, preaching to them every Sunday evening at his cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris. This year -- more than two decades after he inaugurated this sermon series -- the influential Figaro newspaper ran an eight-part series about Christian intellectuals finally resurfacing in France after a very long internal exile: it simply wasn't considered chic to be a man or woman of faith.
In France, the rest of the country has always followed the intellectuals' path. It is now fashionable again, even for leftwing thinkers such as Regis Debré, Ché Guevara's companion, to speak of the need of religious instruction at school, though the government blocked the mention of God and Christianity in the draft of the new European constitution.
The French church, once an institution of immense power, has become a mission church, and her sisters in other part of the Continent are following her example. Indeed, that mission takes place chiefly in the once almost hopelessly secularized urban centers, where there are now first signs of a tender spiritual renewal.
That, too, was Lustiger's brainchild. Since Europe's conversion has top priority for the Catholic Church, the election of this formidable preacher and thinker is still a possibility, even though, at 77, he is no longer of an ideal age -- and though popular superstition holds the last pope will be of Jewish descent and call himself Peter II.
ALLEGATIONS ABOUT THE POPE¹S ETHNIC BACKGROUND
It seems that people are seeing a Jew around every corner. The extreme right
wing, ignorant and misinformed have been alleging that the diseased Pope was
a Zydek. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, it¹s ludicrous.
I really have no time to deeply comment on this other than type a few lines.
My hope is that this paper, addressed to the evenhanded, should put the case
How do I know the above? Well, in 1978 I supplied world media with info on
Wojtyla¹s history. I still have xerox copies of some of the checks secured.
They totaled about twenty two thousand dollars ($22,000).
Rather than go into extensive details, I will refer to my travels with
Eastern European Newsweek Chief Paul Martin. Mr. Martin was stationed in
Bonn, West Germany. I took him to Wadowice (Wojtyla¹s home town). We also
traveled in my new car to Cracow and other cities. The data below will be
quick and fastly typed. It¹s first hand info. It has no assumptions. It
lacks the stuff composed by non-Polish speaking research and secondhand
tidings. It¹s broken down into four sections: (1) Wojytla¹s neighbors,
friends and childhood buddies; (2) Wojtyla¹s actual home; (3) Wojtyla¹s
ethnicity (background); and (4) Facts from his environment within Krakow,
where he had been a Cardinal. The conclusion authenticates background,
without any mumbo jumbo philosophy.
Meetings with Wojtyla¹s Childhood Friends
Newsweek¹s Martin and this writer met with several individuals. It was
discovered that Karol Wojtyla was an exceptional student. Proletariats and
intellectuals insisted that he was a tremendous athlete, with a quick mind.
We ambulated in the fields where Wojtyla ran.
He resided in an old bldg. We spoke with individuals born in the area. It
was even recalled how he saved time by devising a pulley system to bring
milk up to a second story window. Overall, he was an enterprising youth,
full of ambition and poor economically.
His dad was a Pole. As for the allegation of his mother being of Lithuanian
heritage, one must realize that the region around Wilnoszczyzna was
overwhelming inhabited by Poles. Moreover, she spoke Polish and no one
mentioned that she spoke Lithuanian. Interestingly, despite that fact of
Wilno (Vilnius) now being approximately 50% Lithuanian and 50% Slavic,
before the end of WW II less than one percent of the population spoke
Lithuanian. This has nothing to do with any hates, political objectives
and/or misunderstandings. It¹s simply a fact. For verification read German
or Russian documentation.
We visited this ancient city and met with an individual who appeared to be
incredibly anti-Polish. He was Wojtyla¹s assistant and his name was Fr.
Pieron. He was loved by media personnel. He spoke to me as though he were
speaking with an individual of non-Polish heritage.
Strangely enough, Pieron for some unknown reason- kept glorifying all
things Jewish. It was difficult to understand Pieron¹s obsession. After all,
no one had brought up the topic of Jews, Zionism, Marks ideology or even
anything correlating to Israel.
Nevertheless, Pieron appeared to be an obsessed with the J-topic. Pieron had
a quick tongue and appeared to be upset when I insisted that we speak to
others in Wojtyla's Krakovian entourage.
We discovered that Wojtyla was well liked by everyone. His cook, an obese
nun, had a great smile and even told jokes about Karol Wojtyla. I took
pictures of the various rooms, Wojtyla¹s bed, the yard, etc.
Conclusion- As a youth Karol Wojtyla was a versatile boy. He was an
outstanding athlete and intellectually endowed. Apparently, he also had a
knowledge of how to appease others and he possessed excellent interaction
skills. His personality was pleasing to all.
As for his ethnic stock, all valid data denotes that he was of Slavic
heritage. Biologically he was a Pole. One could say, if attuned to political
nationality, that Lithuanian could figure into his background realms.
Before Wojtyla became Pope he was a Cardinal residing in Krakow. He was
loved by his cook. A jovial person, she stated that Wotyla loved life, tried
to get along with everyone and treated the lowest worker as though he were a
I don¹t have time to compose anything about his acting or student life.
Suffice to emphasize that Karol Wojtyla was an intellectual and world
traveler. He knew who held all the cards and who had the most influence in
pulling the political and economic strings. These few lines contain nothing
about his philosophical inner being or accomplishments as an author.
As for Newsweek, she was given the rights to utilize some of Wotyla¹s
personal material. For example, Karol Wojtyla¹s family albumen, with
childhood pictures become one of the prizes.
Lastly, without taking any stance about Wojtyl'a accomplishments and
mistakes, let it be known that those alleging he was Jewish are standing on
the ground of distortions. If their data was obtained by misinformation it¹s
altogether another story. If elicited as fact, it¹s not true.
Wotyla¹s genetic makeup was Polish. He was of Slavic heritage and a
Catholic. Anything contrary to these facts represents dishonesty and/or
