Brooklyn Diocese in NYC agrees to pay $27.5MILLION damages to four men who were repeatedly raped by their Catholic teacher as young boys in the latest pedophile scandal to hit the church

Four men who were victim to horrific child sex abuse by their Catholic religion teacher were awarded a hefty $27.5million settlement by the Diocese of Brooklyn on Tuesday.

The diocese agreed to the pay each of the unnamed victims - who were lured into sleepovers and repeatedly raped by their religion teacher, Angelo Serrano, 67, when they were ages 8 through 12 between 2003 and 2009 - a sum of $6,875,000 each.

Serrano had been working as a religion teacher at St. Lucy’s-St. Patrick’s Church in Brooklyn at the time he abused his young male students.

The disturbing abuse took place inside the church - which has since been shut down - as well as a nearby school building and Serrano's apartment at the time, attorneys for the victims said.

How Christian Zionists got their man into the White House ...

***
On 18 July, US Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote speech at the annual summit of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Founded in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee, an evangelist from San Antonio, CUFI claims to be the largest pro-Israel group in the United States, with three million members. Hagee endorsed Donald Trump for president in May 2016
***
Pence's speech marks a fundamental change in the language that the White House has historically employed to articulate the United States' relationship with Israel," Dan Hummel, a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, wrote in the Washington Post.

That fundamental change is towards Christian Zionism, an ideology that bases its political support for Israel on the belief that the modern state of Israel is a manifestation of prophecies in the Bible - and that the very fate of the United States is prophetically linked with Israel.

Hummel describes Pence as an "ardent Christian Zionist" who expresses his support for Israel in explicitly prophetic terms>>>>

Archbishop of Canterbury is accused of hypocrisy after slamming web giant Amazon for ‘leeching’ off taxpayers – as it emerges his Church holds a multi-million-pound stake in the retailer

Justin Welby was facing accusations of hypocrisy and naivety last night after it was revealed the Church of England has invested heavily in Amazon.

Only days after Archbishop Welby accused the internet giant of ‘leeching off the taxpayer’, the Mail can reveal the Church’s stake in the company is one of the 20 most valuable investments held by its multi-billion-pound fund.

The Church refused to say how much its Amazon shares are worth, but it is likely to be several million pounds. Its 20 most valuable investments total more than £500 million.

German Catholic priests 'abused thousands of children'

More than 3,600 children in Germany were assaulted by Roman Catholic priests between 1946 and 2014, a leaked report has revealed.

The study was commissioned by the Church itself, and was due to be published on 25 September.

According to the report, some 1,670 clergymen in Germany committed some form of sex attack on 3,677 minors, German outlet Spiegel Online reported.

A Church spokesman said it was "dismayed and ashamed" by the findings.

The report is the latest in a long series of revelations that have uncovered decades of sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests around the world.

'They look like they're having a good time talking about rape': Vatican is mocked for releasing 'shockingly inappropriate photo' of giggling Pope and his cardinals meeting to discuss church sex abuse next to a suggestive statuette

The Vatican press office was skewered by Twitter users on Thursday for releasing a photo showing Pope Francis grinning along with US cardinals and bishops during an emergency meeting to address a church sex scandal.

In the handout image from the Vatican Media, the Holy Father looks to be in a jovial mood while talking to Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, of Galveston-Houston, who leads the US Conference of Bishops, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Los Angeles Jose Horacio Gomez and Monsignor Brian Bransfield, of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

All six clergyman in the photo taken before a private audience to address the groping allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appear to be smiling or laughing.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting just about as serious as is a heart attack: I find myself very alarmed at these developments.

‘End of days’: Birth of red heifer in Israel may signal coming of Messiah, Hebrew scholars say

The group imported the frozen embryos of red Angus cows and implanted them in domestic Israeli cows. Red heifers have been born previously, but were disqualified for failing to meet all the prophetic requirements. A calf born in 1999 turned out to be male, and one from 2002 wasn’t entirely red – it had one patch of white hair.

Zionism, Jews and gentiles

"The early Zionists promised to save the Jews from the Jew and to liberate the Jew from the Jews. They were disgusted by the diaspora’s non-proletarian urban Jewish culture which they regarded as parasitic. They promised to bond the new Hebrews with labour and soil. They were convinced that they could transform what they saw as a greedy capitalist into a new ‘Israelite hard working peasant’. They believed that they could make the ‘international cosmopolitan’ into a nationalist patriot; they believed that they knew how to convert Soros into a kibbutznik. They were certain that it was within their capacity to make Alan Dershowitz into a Uri Avneri and Abe Foxman into a peacenik. They promised to make Jews into people like all other peoples while failing to realise that no other people really want to resemble others." >>

New Study Reveals 3,677 German Catholic Church Sex Abuse Cases Over Decades

A series of sex scandals has hit the church recently, with cases of the sexual abuse of thousands of minors and clerical cover-up emerging in the US, Australia, and Chile. The Pontiff himself has been accused of knowing about a disgraced US cardinal's sexual misconduct and doing nothing with it.

The Catholic Church is now facing a series of sex scandals, this time in Germany. Der Spiegel magazine said on Wednesday that thousands of children had been sexually abused by the German Catholic clergy over a 70-year period.

The study, conducted by the universities of Giessen, Heidelberg and Mannheim, detailed 3,677 cases of child sexual abuse between 1946 and 2014, perpetrated by 1,670 clerics and priests. The victims were predominantly boys, and more than half of them were aged 13 or younger. In many cases, pieces of records were destroyed or manipulated, the study added.

Pentecostal Pastor Behind Viral Trump, Witchcraft Video: Trump Is an Adulterer but I Can't Question Who God Raised Up

An Assemblies of God pastor whose sermon on President Donald Trump and witchcraft went viral said he believes Trump is an adulterer and doesn't understand how God can use him.

Though he's scratching his head over the current president, the Rev. John A. Kilpatrick of Church of His Presence in Daphne, Alabama, said he doesn't want to question God.

"If God has raised him up, and I believe that is the case, then I would say I would not touch him because [who] God has raised up, you don't want to oppose," he said in a sermon this past Sunday.

Pope Francis blames the devil for the cover-ups of clergy sexual abuse in the Catholic church

During his homily at Mass on Tuesday morning, Pope Francis blamed the devil for the sexual abuse scandal that has shaken the Catholic church to its core. But not in the way you think. To the pope’s way of thinking it is the efforts to expose the sinful cover-ups of abusive clergymen that are the work of Satan.

Using the term “Great Accuser” during his homily at Casa Santa Marta on Tuesday morning, Pope Francis seemed to demonize those who question the actions of the leaders of the church, telling the assembled bishops that they seem to be under satanic attack in order to “scandalize the people.”

Grand Jury Finds Police Were Complicit in Covering Up Massive Child Sex Ring in Catholic Church

For those who have been keeping up with the child sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church that erupted late last month in Pennsylvania, many have been wondering how it was allowed to go on for so long without anyone getting charged or arrested. Now, we may have the answer—the police were complicit.

During a grand jury report into the child sex abuse by priests in Pennsylvania, the state Attorney General, Josh Shapiro provided insight into how priests were allowed to go on for decades preying on children. He singled out the two groups responsible for covering up the crimes of the church.

One of the groups named by the AG was the Catholic Church hierarchy like the archbishops and cardinals who reacted to allegations of child rape by simply transferring the priest to a new church or failing to act at all. The other group Shapiro named was law enforcement, who he says acted in tandem with the abusive priests to keep their horrific habits from ever reaching the public eye.

‘End of days’: Birth of red heifer in Israel may signal coming of Messiah, Hebrew scholars say

A Jewish group says an apparently completely red heifer has been born – the first in 2,000 years – thus fulfilling a biblical prophecy that signals the coming of the Messiah, which Christians believe will end with an apocalypse.

The birth of the potential cow of prophecy was announced by the Temple Institute, a group which says it is “dedicated to every aspect of the Holy Temple of Jerusalem.” “On the 17th day of Elul, 5778, [August 28, 2018], a red heifer was born in the land of Israel,” the group wrote on its Facebook page.

The organization says that the female baby cow foreshadows the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem, heralding the arrival of the Jewish Messiah. Evangelical Christian theologians also believe the construction of the Third Temple will lead to Judgment Day.

Catholic Church Found to Have Spent Over $2 Million Lobbying To Block Child Sex Laws

In light of the growing pedophilia and sexual assault scandal rocking the Catholic Church, it is important to remember that not very long ago the organization was found paying off a lobbying firm to block bills related to sex crimes against children.

In 2015, the New York State Catholic Conference, contracted the lobbying groups, Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker, Patricia Lynch & Associates, Hank Sheinkopf, and Mark Behan Communications to block a bill called the Child Victims Act, which was aimed at making it easier for victims of child sex crimes to come out against their accusers. The bill also sought to extend the statute of limitations for sex crimes, since many victims are too afraid to speak out until too much time has passed to prosecute.

Catholics Putting Pressure On Church Leaders To Prevent Sex Abuse

Across the country, and in Baltimore, Catholics are putting pressure on their church leaders to do more to prevent sex abuse.

After Sunday mass and in the pouring rain, a group of progressive Catholics asked leaders of their own faith to step up.

“The people in the pews are demanding to have a say,” Maureen Keck, a Catholic, said.

A national campaign, “Time’s Up: Catholics Demand Truth” is calling for transparency from the church and diversity among decision-makers in the wake of a bombshell grand jury report from Pennsylvania that named 300 predator priests and the leaders who allegedly covered up their crimes.

The Pope Sides With Muslims Over Israel’s Claim to Jerusalem

Just one day after President Trump boldly declared the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel, the Pope jumped into the debate to say he was “worried” about Trump’s plan:

The pope told thousands of people at his general audience: “I cannot keep quiet about my deep worry about the situation that has been created in the last few days.”

He said he hoped “wisdom and prudence prevail, in order to avoid adding new elements of tension to a global panorama that is already convulsed and marked by so many and cruel conflicts.”

Way to go Pontiff, at least you are consistent. You have never once taken a position backing YHWH or Jesus, only the Muslims. At least we know where you stand!

Why a new memorial to the Holocaust is essential

We are building a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre next to Parliament to make sure we never forget the persecution and murder of the Jewish people of Europe and all other victims of Nazi persecution. We've got to be brave at times like these, when it's clear that our British values of tolerance and equality are coming under threat ... The proposed Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre is the key to building a new generation who will fight against fascism, intolerance and the subversion of democracy, wherever and whenever it occurs.

Bible prophecy FULFILLED as first ‘red heifer born in 2,000 YEARS' signalling END OF DAYS

The Temple Institute announced the birth of an entirely red female calf that “brings the promise of reinstating Biblical purity to the world”.

Red heifers feature in end times tales in both Christianity and Judaism.

The cow’s birth and sacrifice is said to proceed the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

And the Third Temple’s construction – following the destruction of the previous two – heralds the arrival of the Jewish Messiah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was a claim that a Red Heifer was born back in the 1990s ... but the Messiah didn't show up.

Shocking Footage Shows Iranian Consulate In Basra Exploding In Massive Blaze

update: Stunning footage has emerged of the Iranian consulate in Basra, Iraq burning after a mob of anti-Iran protesters stormed it near dusk on Friday.

The flames appear multiple stories high and several explosions can be observed amidst the massive blaze.

On Thursday evening Iran's consulate in Basra was placed under siege by a throng of demonstrators after a 24-hour period in which a dozen local Shia militia HQ offices and buildings were torched across the city. Mass protests and riots have grown in the city since Monday.

The same night in Baghdad, regional sources indicate at least three mortars targeted the US embassy in Baghdad's protected 'green zone' landing near the gate but not causing significant damage. The events were part of a worsening sectarian crisis across the country in which pro-Iran Shia forces have vowed to expel "foreign occupying forces" — however in the Sunni-majority southern city of Basra, Sunni groups have been engaged in mob reprisal attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This tragedy should, ultimately, be laid squarely at the foot of the Bush Administration, as a result of the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Its de-Baathification of the country, coupled with the complete sacking of Iraq's military, led to the horrors of the instability which still haunt this country and its divided religious leadership, so many years after the initial invasion and occupation.

Pope Francis hits out at 'killer' money-centred culture that promotes 'poverty, slavery and waste'

Pope Francis has hit out at what he describes as a money-centred culture that 'promotes poverty, slavery and waste'.

The Pope ranted about modern society in an interview with Italian financial newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, saying it valued money over people.

The pontiff said: 'We can't ignore the fact that an economy structured like this kills because it makes money central and only obeys money.

Officially Sanctioned Fraud at Dachau

Each year many thousands of tourists visit the site of the notorious Dachau concentration camp in southern Germany, not far from Munich. They see the crematory, the memorial shrines, and the museum. And in recent years, as an almost daily fixture, they see Martin Zaidenstadt. This elderly Jewish man lectures visitors to Dachau on his experiences as a wartime prisoner there. He is particularly passionate about the horrors of the camp's gas chamber where, he explains, many prisoners were put to death with poison gas ... His story of Dachau internment is a fraud. He probably never visited the camp until the 1990s, says Ryback, and his tales of gas chamber killings are untrue.

Pueblo woman crashed Mormon Church service to accuse former leader of raping her

McKenna Denson had traveled more than 700 miles from her home in Pueblo, Colorado, to attend a Mormon Church service in Chandler, Arizona, and didn’t waste time telling the congregation why.

Sunday was supposed to be a day of fasting and testimony at the church, and Denson strode up to the pulpit like any other member of the congregation. She introduced herself as a visitor, professed “great confidence and love for the savior” – and then she accused a former church leader of raping her more than 30 years ago.

Denson had apparently come to expose him before his own congregation.

Catholic priest is arrested for 'raping mentally handicapped victim of human trafficking' in Latvia, ahead of a visit by the Pope

A Catholic priest has been arrested over claims he raped a mentally handicapped victim of human trafficking in Latvia.

The priest, identified as Pavels Zeila, 73, served in the Aglona-Rezekne diocese in eastern Latvia, which is to host Pope Francis during a four-day tour of the three Baltic states later this month.

A second man was also arrested on suspicion of trafficking in the case, which has shocked the Baltic state as it prepares to receive the Pope from September 22.

PAPAL PEDOGATE: Pope Francis Caught in the Act of Prelate VIP Pedophilia Cover-up (Video)

What makes the Roman Pontiff’s statements (See 3 screenshots above) so remarkable is that he was forced to make them because he truly has no defense. In other words, Francis is stone-cold guilty of the charges levied against him by Carlo Maria Viganò, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States from 19 October 2011 to 12 April 2016.

Because Pope Francis has no defense whatsoever, there’s really nothing he can say that will vindicate himself; hence, he issued no response to the proven allegations. In light of this unparalleled papal predicament, the Pope can only rely on the Mainstream Media to cover for him and the Gay Mafia (also known as the Lavender Mafia) in the Vatican.

Pope Francis is embroiled in a major pedophile scandal.

Claims that a recently appointed Chilean bishop covered for a pedophiliac priest are “slander,” the pope said during a recent visit to the country. “You, in all good will, tell me that there are victims, but I haven’t seen any, because they haven’t come forward,” he told an Associated Press reporter at the time. But the AP now reports that a victim did come forward, and that Francis personally received a letter from him detailing both the abuse and Bishop Juan Barros’s role in the cover-up:

Members of the pope’s Commission for the Protection of Minors say that in April 2015, they sent a delegation to Rome specifically to hand-deliver a letter to the pope about Barros. The letter from Juan Carlos Cruz detailed the abuse, kissing and fondling he says he suffered at Karadima’s hands, which he said Barros and others saw but did nothing to stop.

Nebraska Catholic diocese rocked by old abuse allegations

For more than a decade, a conservative Catholic diocese in Nebraska was the only church in the U.S. that refused to participate in annual reviews of sexual misconduct that were a key reform enacted in the wake of the 2002 Boston clergy abuse scandal.

As a new wave of abuse scandals rock the Roman Catholic church, critics say the Diocese of Lincoln is now paying the price for its unwillingness to change and lack of transparency.

Accusers have been coming forward in recent weeks with allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct by clergy in Nebraska, and the diocese is facing a potential criminal investigation and criticism that it mishandled abusive priests even as it should have been subjected to increased scrutiny after the Boston scandal.

'We are angry, betrayed and disillusioned': Thousands of Catholic women sign open letter to the Pope urging him to break his silence over claims he turned a blind eye to sexual abuse

Thousands of Catholic women have signed an open letter to the Pope urging him to break his silence over claims he turned a blind eye to sexual abuse.

In the letter, they told Francis they felt 'angry, betrayed and disillusioned' over claims he ignored abuse allegations against prominent US cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, a former Vatican envoy to the US, made the claims at the weekend saying the pontiff 'covered' for 'serial predator' McCarrick 'to the bitter end'. But the Argentine has yet to address Vigano's claims.

Pope faces mounting pressure to QUIT as ultra-conservative members of the Catholic Church hierarchy continue to accuse him of covering for cardinal in abuse scandal

The pope is facing mounting pressure to quit as ultra-conservative members of the Catholic Church hierarchy continue to accuse him of covering for a cardinal in a sex abuse scandal.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, a former Vatican envoy to the US, dropped an 11-page bombshell at the weekend accusing Francis of ignoring abuse allegations against prominent US cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

Pope Francis 'knew from at least June 23, 2013, that McCarrick was a serial predator,' Vigano alleged. 'He knew that he was a corrupt man, he covered for him to the bitter end.'

'We saw nuns kill children': Horror claims about torture, sexual abuse and MURDER in Catholic orphanage in Vermont surface decades on

Sickening claims about torture, sexual abuse and even the murder of children in a Catholic orphanage have resurfaced decades after the alleged events.

Public documents and witness interviews corroborate many details of the claims made by former residents of St. Joseph's Orphanage in Burlington, Vermont, according to a four-year investigation published on Monday by BuzzFeed News.

The new report comes as governments in the UK, Ireland, Australia and elsewhere grapple with decades-old reports of horror inside Catholic orphanages.

St. Joseph's, which was run by the Montreal-based Sisters of Providence, closed down in 1974, and the allegations regard children who lived there from the 1930s through the 70s.

Key witness Sally Dale was the institution's longest resident, growing up at St. Joseph's from ages 2 to 23. In 1996, Dale gave a searing 19-hour deposition recounting the alleged abuse, including that she saw a nun throw a boy to his death from a window.

The long-running scandal of the Church’s cruelty to more than 30,000 ‘fallen’ women has shaken the country.

The forced adoption of babies born out of wedlock, the harsh treatment dealt out to those falling on the wrong side of respectability – these things have been highlighted by, among others, author and television presenter Martin Sixsmith.

Penitent Pope Francis describes paedophile priest cover-up as 'Caca - filth one sees in the toilet' while meeting with Irish victims before telling 82,000 fans at Croke Park stadium that 'to hate is human, to forgive is divine'

Pope Francis has met victims of abuse and mistreatment in Ireland, telling them that those who abuse children were the equivalent of human excrement.

He spent 90 minutes speaking with eight Irish survivors of clerical, religious and institutional abuse during the first papal visit to Ireland since 1979.

The Pontiff told of the two abuse survivors that 'those involved in corruption and cover up within the church are 'caca", with his translator clarifying: 'Literally filth as one sees in the toilet'.

Pope Francis spoke with the group before attending a Festival of Families celebration yesterday at Croke Park Stadium in Dublin, where he received a standing ovation after telling the 82,500-strong crowd that 'to hate is human, to forgive is divine'.

He was greeted by enthusiastic nuns hoisting papal flags and performing Mexican waves at the event, where he stressed the importance of family, and warned people of the 'threat' social media poses to relationships.

Pope Dismisses Explosive Testimony Of Abuse Cover-Up: I Will "Not Say One Word"

Former Vatican Official Accuses Pope Francis of Knowingly Reinstating Abusive Cardinal

In a bombshell report, the Vatican’s former ambassador to the United States has accused Pope Francis of reinstating Cardinal Theodore McCarrick to a position of prominence despite knowing of McCarrick’s sexual abuse of priests, seminarians, and laypeople, including minors.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò released an 11-page affidavit on Saturday alleging that Pope Benedict had imposed “canonical sanctions” on Cardinal McCarrick in 2009-2010 forbidding him from traveling, celebrating Mass in public, or participating in public meetings, but that Pope Francis later lifted these sanctions and made McCarrick a close personal advisor.

Presenting himself as a whistleblower, Viganò declares that bishops “must have the courage to tear down the culture of secrecy and publicly confess the truths we have kept hidden.”

The archbishop concludes by calling on Pope Francis to resign his office as pope.

Rain stops pray! Just 130,000 show up to see Pope say mass in the same Dublin park where 1.25million greeted John Paul II as downpours keep faithful away while Francis begs for forgiveness over abuse cover-up

Only a handful of the 500,000 people expected to attend the Pope's final mass on his visit to Ireland on Sunday actually turned up - unofficial attendance figures claim.

Despite half a million tickets being made available for the landmark mass, according to Journal.ie only 130,000 worshippers turned up to the ceremony.

The numbers compare poorly to the crowds who gathered for Pope John Paul's visit in 1979, where over a million people gathered in the same park for mass.

In total 2.7 million people turned out to see Pope John Paul II at several locations over three days - and Sunday's event was expected to trump that.

But organisers were left red faced and disappointed as aerial photos revealed massive green spaces in between small pockets of people.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano made the shocking revelation in a lengthy statement released on Sunday, one day after the pope met with survivors of clerical abuse in Dublin, Ireland.

She tried to tell everyone about the rampant abuse of children at the hands of the Catholic Church... way back in 1992. She was booed, and poorly understood.

Now, I have an idea, and you can help.

Let's get Saturday Night Live to have her back on the show.

Catholic Church spent $2M on major N.Y. lobbying firms to block child-sex law reform

Not leaving it to divine chance, the state Catholic Conference has turned in recent years to some of Albany's most well-connected and influential lobby firms to help block a bill that would make it easier for child sex abuse victims to seek justice.

The Catholic Conference, headed by Timothy Cardinal Dolan, has used Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker, Patricia Lynch & Associates, Hank Sheinkopf, and Mark Behan Communications to lobby against the Child Victims Act as well as for or against other measures.

All told, the conference spent more than $2.1 million on lobbying from 2007 through the end of 2015, state records show. That does not include the conference's own internal lobbying team.

Mexico Cardinal: Victims Who Accuse Priests Should Be ‘Ashamed’

Mexican Cardinal Sergio Obeso Rivera said abuse victims should be “ashamed” to accuse “men of the Church.”

The newly-minted cardinal was speaking to a group of journalists on August 16, just days after the bombshell revelations out of Pennsylvania that some 300 members of the Church abused upwards of 1,000 children over the course of 70 years. This abuse was only possible, according the grand jury report, because of a Church-wide cover up that reached all the way to the Vatican.

Embattled Cardinal Mahony cancels speech at Utah Catholic event in wake of sex abuse report

Cardinal Roger Mahony, retired archbishop of Los Angeles, withdrew Monday as the keynote speaker at next month’s annual fundraising dinner for Utah’s Catholic diocese after hearing of potential protests about his alleged role in covering up priest sex abuse in Southern California in the 1980s.

Mahony decided to decline the invitation after recent reports of abuse — including the explosive grand jury finding that more than 300 priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses had abused at least 1,000 victims over 70 years — and the call from Pope Francis “for greater accountability,” diocesan spokeswoman Jean Hill said.

SATELLITE SHOWS SPRAWLING ‘RE-EDUCATION CAMPS’ FOR CHINESE MUSLIMS IN XINJIANG REGION

More proof has emerged confirming that China has erected expansive ‘re-education centers’ for up to a million or more ethnic Uighurs in what a recent United Nations statement said resembles a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy”.

The minority Turkic speaking ethno-religious group concentrated in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang has found itself under increased persecution and oversight by Chinese authorities of late as their mostly Sunni Islamic identity and separatist politics have resulted in historic tensions with the Communist government.

A U.N. panel examining human rights inside China wrapped up last week and included a Chinese delegation of about 50 officials which formally denied that prisons have been set up for the Uighur population.

Hodge tries to gag BBC

Controversial Children's Minister Margaret Hodge today launched an extraordinary bid to stop the BBC reporting fresh allegations of abuse at an Islington children's home.

She labelled a former abuse victim, Demetrious Panton, an "extremely disturbed person" in an astonishing attack on his testimony. Mrs Hodge sent a letter to BBC chairman Gavyn Davies, copied to director-general Greg Dyke, accusing Radio 4's Today programme of "deplorable sensationalism" and "scant balance". The minister claimed Today reporter Angus Stickler was motivated by trying to connect her to the case in her role as leader of Islington council in the 1980s.

She called on Mr Davies to investigate personally and added: "If the position is that a news item is being developed with the intention of connecting a government minister to the story for the sake of sensationalism then I think it is deplorable."

Child Abuse, the Catholic Church and the Justice of Real Consequences

I abandoned the Church years before the pedophilia scandals erupted into public consciousness, but when the pedophilia scandals exploded two blocks from my house on the doorstep of the cardinal’s residence in Boston, I realized who Shanley was, and how close I had come to danger (I very specifically remember him looking like an animated cadaver as he stood in the light from the window, so I skipped all but the first CCD classes because he creeped me out so much). Behind all the incense and the soaring cathedral walls was an edifice built on hiding the tears of children that were shed because of the actions of trusted priests and the church leadership who protected them.

My relationship with the Church began with fear, then morphed over the years into fearful respect, then respect in disagreement, then disdain, until I finally landed in a cold puddle of perfect horror … and that was all before the Pennsylvania report this week:

How the Catholic church used a 'playbook' to cover up abuse in Pennsylvania and sent priests to 'treatment centers' - but many ignored the advice

A grand jury report released Tuesday, revealed that hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania have molested more than 1,000 children and that senior church officials, including the now archbishop of Washington, D.C. covered up the abuse.

The report said the numbers of actual victims and abusers could be much higher.

It found that the church systematically covered up the abuse using 'a playbook for concealing the truth.'

State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said at a news conference: 'We saw Catholic priests weaponizing their faith, using their faith as a tool of the abuse, and all the while the bishops, the monsignors, the cardinals covered it up.'

Sexual abuse complaint: Christian Brothers blamed for son's death

The spotlight on sexual abuse within the Catholic Church is widening to include fresh allegations against the Christian Brothers in Dunedin.

An ODT Insight investigation, as part of the ongoing "Marked by the Cross" series, has uncovered allegations of historic sexual abuse, dating back to the 1970s, levelled against two Christian Brothers.

A Dunedin mother, speaking on condition of anonymity, said she blamed her son's suicide on the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of one of the men, Br Desmond Fay, in the 1970s.

And a fresh police complaint has also been lodged in recent weeks by a man alleging he was repeatedly molested by another Christian Brother at St Paul's High School, in Dunedin, in 1971-72.

The contact, which the mother said escalated from grooming to sexual abuse over time, continued from the time the boy was 7 until he revealed the abuse to his family aged 11, the mother said.

SATANIC TEMPLE STATUE UNVEILED AT ARKANSAS STATE CAPITOL

Members of the Satanic Temple held a "Rally for the First Amendment” yesterday at the Arkansas State Capitol, where they unveiled an 8.5-foot bronze statue of Baphomet with two adoring children at his side to the Arkansas State Capitol. The Satanic Temple is suing the Federal Government for the right to permanently install the statue on the Capitol grounds, arguing that since the Capitol has a Ten Commandments monument, other religions must be allowed to display their symbols there, too.

Europe Is Undergoing a Conservative Christian Revival

We came across Turley recently and find him interesting because his basic argument is that there is a worldwide turn to conservative values, traditionalism, and nationalism, in the US, Eastern Europe, the EU, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, in fact, all continents, and that this change is being driven by the loosening of the liberal, globalist grip on information flow due to technology. Turley is a theology, Greek, and rhetoric teacher in the booming classical education movement, which is predominantly conservative. He is a former Protestant from Connecticut who converted to Orthodoxy. He speaks about the Russian Orthodox Christian revival in this video. Turley hosts a rapidly growing YouTube broadcast where he discusses these trends and political events generally from a conservative viewpoint. In this video he discusses a groundbreaking March article in the Federalist by John D. Martin: Reports Of Christianity’s Death In Europe Have Been Greatly Exaggerated.

Cardinal Wuerl addresses report on child sex abuse by priests, says he will not resign

In an exclusive interview with FOX 5, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the Archbishop of Washington, sits down to discuss a grand jury report that alleges he systematically covered up and protected priests who sexually abused children in Pennsylvania.

The bombshell report said more than 300 Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania molested more than 1,000 children — and possibly many more — since the 1940s. The report also alleges senior church officials, such as Wuerl, systematically covered up the abuse and helped to protect the priests.

Wuerl was Pittsburgh's bishop and led the Pittsburgh diocese from 1988 to 2006.

Rinsing victims' mouths with holy water and making one boy pose as Jesus: Grand Jury reveals the depravity of 301 priests who sexually assaulted at least 1,000 children - which the Catholic church covered up

Hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania have molested more than 1,000 children and senior church officials, including the now archbishop of Washington, D.C., systematically covered up the abuse.

A grand jury report released Tuesday reveals the horrific predatory behavior which included making young boys rinse their mouths with holy water to 'purify' them after they were forced to give oral sex to clergymen and the abuse of one boy who was made to pose naked as Jesus while other priests took pornographic pictures.

The priests would mark out which boys had been groomed for abuse by giving them gold crosses to wear as necklaces.

The 800-page report refers to more than 300 priests in six diocese where children were raped, plied with alcohol, or forced to perform for clergymen to produce pornographic material since the mid-1950s.

Chile Catholic Episcopal Conference Raided In Pedophile Priest Probe

Authorities recently summoned the archbishop of Santiago, Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati, to appear and testify about the alleged cover-up of sexual abuse which had been going on for decades.

Bombshell Pennsylvania report details 300 priests who sexually molested more than 1,000 children over 70 years

Pennsylvania officials have released a landmark grand jury report that identifies more than 300 'predator priests' who molested children in six dioceses.

The grand jury says its investigation of clergy sexual abuse identified more than 1,000 child victims.

The grand jury report released Tuesday says that number comes from records in six Roman Catholic dioceses.

The grand jury says it believes the 'real number' of abused children might be 'in the thousands' since some records were lost and victims were afraid to come forward.

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF ‘MUSLIM SCHOOL SHOOTING TRAINING CAMP’ SUSPECTS AFTER CHARGES OF RACISM

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the release of five suspects accused of running a “school shooting training camp” after one of their attorneys said they’re only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

“Many people here live in unconventional ways,” Judge Baukus said.

“The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan,” one of the suspects other attorneys told the media outside the court.

From CNN:

The evidence was intended to paint a disturbing picture of a zealous family training for a violent mission against government institutions, New Mexico prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about the one dead kid, and the 11 starving children?!?

No crimes here, right, Judge Sarah Backus?!? Starvation and murder are not crimes against minor children in this country, if the family is Muslim, right?!?

With this release from prison by this Judge, one has to speculate if this guy wasn't hired by elements of the Deep State to teach his kids to do school shootings, as a way of imposing a total and complete gun ban on American citizens.

I fully expect all charges here to be dropped; the guy got caught before he could finish his intended work, and the case will no longer see the light of day in the media.

Hitchens on Burqagate: British State ‘Loathes Christianity’, But ‘Fears Islam’

Peter Hitchens, brother of the late ‘anti-theist’ writer Christopher Hitchens, has waded into the debate surrounding Boris Johnson’s burqa comments, declaring it is Christianity, not Islam, which is “under siege” in Great Britain.
Despite a youthful commitment to Trotskyism, the British columnist’s political life has diverged sharply from his left-liberal older brother’s.

A conservative commentator and journalist of some note in his own right, the younger Hitchens has won the Orwell Prize in part for his foreign reporting from China, which he regards as a sinister left-wing dictatorship. He has also published books on a range of topics, including the so-called ‘war on drugs’ — which he sees as a necessary but largely unfought conflict — and the hostility of the present-day establishment to religion in general and Christianity in particular.

IN SHOCKING UN ACCUSATION, CHINA SAID TO HOLD 1 MILLION UIGHUR MUSLIMS IN "MASSIVE INTERNMENT CAMPS"

A breaking report based on findings of a United Nations human rights panel accuses China of holding up to one million ethnic Uighurs in what the report says resembles a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy”.

The minority ethno-religious group concentrated in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang has found itself under increased persecution and oversight by Chinese authorities of late as their collective Sunni Islamic identity and separatist political movements have resulted in historic tensions with the Communist government.

Most notable is the ethnic Uighur-founded and led East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM, also commonly called the Turkestan Islamic Party, or TIP), a Muslim separatist group based Xinjiang known to have conducted dozens of terror attacks in Chinese cities like Shanghai and Yunnan, but also in places like Afghanistan, and as far as Syria, where it's believed up to 5,000 Uighurs fight alongside al-Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I find interesting about the timing of the release of this UN report, is the reality that the US has brought down even more economic sanctions against China as of last month. First Section 301 Trade Tariffs against China on 6 July: second list of tariff lines introduced for review.

One can view the timing of this report in one of two ways, but I think a middle ground perspective is most useful.

It is difficult for any culture, or country, to have a prominent ethnic minority which will not assimilate to the primary culture's norms, to the point of creating violence against that primary culture, as we are seeing with middle Eastern and African immigrants coming to Europe. But this has been a highly fraught confrontation between Beijing and the Uighurs for quite some time now, so this is really nothing new, despite the breathtaking prose here.

But the timing of the release of the report, even though these "camps" may have existed for some time, in an attempt to stop violence against the dominant Chinese culture, may well be an attempt at demonisation against it, in light of both trade and military tensions between the US and China,, which do not appear to be de-escalating any time soon.

Police investigate convicted Holocaust revisionist Alison Chabloz over fresh blog posts

A Holocaust revisionist who narrowly avoided jail after publishing "grossly offensive" songs mocking Jews is being investigated by police again after she called Shoah [Holocaust] "a gargantuan accumulation of nonsense". Alison Chabloz, of Charlesworth, near Glossop, Derbyshire, was given a two-year suspended prison sentence on June 14, after being convicted of charges relating to three songs she posted to social media sites. Chabloz, 54, performed her songs in YouTube videos, titled Nemo's Antisemitic Universe, I Like It How It Is, performed at the right-wing London Forum in 2016, and a third, titled (((survivors))). In the latter, Chabloz mocked Jewish figures, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, as well as Anne and Otto Frank, to the tune of Hava Nagila.

UK: Discrimination Against Christian Refugees

The British government appears recently to have decided that it would like to give the impression that it cares about persecuted Christians. Prime Minister Theresa May said in Parliament on July 18:

"As a Government we stand with persecuted Christians all over the world and will continue to support them."

The British Government even recently appointed its first Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief with Lord Tariq Ahmad of Wimbledon, a former minister, filling the post.

Perhaps the UK should not be so quick to preach to others, when it does not appear to be doing much at home to help Syrian Christians, who have been among the most persecuted for their faith since the civil war in Syria began seven years ago:

Popular Minneapolis Rabbi Charged In Underage Sex Sting

A popular Minneapolis rabbi known for his student outreach work is facing charges stemming from a child sex sting conducted by Minnesota law enforcement in January and early February.

Rabbi Aryeh Cohen was arrested February 1, after exchanging messages with a federal agent posing as a 15-year-old for over a week, according to the criminal complaint filed Tuesday. The complaint alleges that Cohen discussed a sexual liaison with the agent on Grindr, a popular hookup site for men. He was arrested outside the North St. Paul apartment the agent had invited him to as part of the sting. He was charged with two felonies relating to electronic communication about sex with a minor.

Child Brides In Turkey

Authored by Burak Bekdil via The Gatestone Institute,

Where would you like your daughter to be when she is 13? In school, or in bed with a grown man? The answer to this question is largely beyond argument in much of the world. In Islamic societies, however -- including non-Arab and theoretically secular Turkey -- the answer is anyone's guess. Usually in such states, the police power of the government does not fight the patriarchal tradition; instead, it supports it.

Sexual abuse perpetrated by homosexual priests: US Pastor

Sexual abuse by Catholic priests in the US and other countries has largely been perpetrated by homosexual Christian clergy and has been going on for centuries, a Protestant preacher and former US Senate candidate says.

“These particular tragedies, these particular scandals are largely being fomented upon the church by homosexual clergy, but not exclusively,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and Lutheran Protestant pastor in San Antonio, Texas.

“There has been obviously a massive, massive cover-up of this tragic situation, which has gone on not simply for several decades, but has gone on for centuries,” Dankof told Press TV on Saturday.

The counter terminology to Holocaust Denial should be Holocaust Belief

WHAT IS THE HOLOCAUST? It's a belief, nothing more. If you try to get hold of it, touch it, find where it exists, you discover you can't and it doesn't. It's words, it's stories, it's narrative. It's more similar to religion than to history. The 'history' has been built up after the fact around the religion, or belief, to give it greater plausibility.
The Holocaust is a few photos from a few very selective places taken in 1945 after the Allies gained total control of the air and bombed the hell out of everything in Germany.

Being Ordinary

Jewishness is a sophisticated survival strategy. It is a strict regulatory system of adherence. It encourages internal debate but limits any such deliberation by clear boundaries ... It took me a few years to understand that my dissent was actually pretty similar to early Zionist thought, sharing its phantasmic idea of becoming 'people like all other people.' Indeed, my personal goal was to fulfil the early Zionist project for myself: to become an ordinary human being like all other goyim. I realised that to achieve my goal, the first step was to stop being a Jew. ... I saw the need to emphasise that rather than speaking 'to Jews,' I much preferred to talk about "Jewishness, Jewish culture and ID politics."

Israel’s ‘Jewish nation-state’ law a prelude to annexation

When the Netanyahu government passed a Basic Law this week enshrining a superior set of rights for Israel's Jewish citizens, it ushered in a new era of open apartheid. To appreciate the significance of the new nation-state law, one must understand why the bill split Israel's nationalist camp, and why demographic factors forced it to the fore. After the final vote, ruling Likud lawmaker Avi Dichter, who sponsored the bill's first iteration, explained its true purpose. "We are enshrining this important bill into a law today to prevent even the slightest thought, let alone attempt, to transform Israel to a country of all its citizens," Dichter gloated after the law passed this week ... Of course, ever since the state was founded in 1948, Israel has discriminated against its non-Jewish Palestinian citizens in a myriad of ways.
