The Vatican’s Cardinal George Pell Freed From Jail & His Child Sex Abuse Convictions Overturned

Arjun Walia

Cardinal George Pell, who became the highest-ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse, has now been freed from jail after Australia’s highest court overturned his conviction.

The 78-year-old senior Catholic figure was facing a six-year jail sentence after a jury found he was guilty of sexually abusing two boys in Melbourne in the 1990s. Seven judges ruled unanimously in Pell’s favor, stating that the jury who found him guilty had “not properly considered all the evidence presented at the trial.” 

Throughout the entire time, Pell maintained his innocence from the moment he was charged in June of 2017, and despite what’s happened since, regardless of whether he’s actually innocent or not, his case has brought even more attention to the on-going problem of pedophilia within the Vatican and Catholic church.

Although the conviction against Pell has been dropped, people will forever ponder if this man is actually guilty of what he was accused of, and perhaps much more. Unfortunately, sexual abuse within the Catholic Church and other places of power has been an issue for quite some time. It begs the question, how is this type of activity able to persist and sustain itself with nothing stopping it?

It can be disturbing to contemplate the idea that Cardinal George Pell is or would be involved in such things as he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse in 1996.

It’s no secret that sexual abuse scandals have plagued the Catholic Church for decades, and it seems almost every single year. For example, prior to the accusations against Pell, in 2015 a lawyer by the name of Ulrich Weber uncovered that for the thirty year reign of boys choir run by Benedict’s XVI’s elder brother, approximately 600 boys with a “high degree of plausibility” were victims of sexual and physical abuse, or both. The report identified 500 cases of physical abuse, and 67 cases of sexual abuse committed by a total of 49 people in a position of power within the church.

Furthermore, it was only a few months ago when Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governor of Vatican City, implicated multiple church officials, including Pope Francis, in sexual abuse.

Reverend Gabriele Amorth is another example. He was an Italian Roman Catholic Priest and an exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, which is an administrative branch of the Catholic Church of Rome. He claimed to have performed tens of thousands of exorcisms over his half a dozen plus decades as a Catholic Priest, and has mentioned a number of times how Satanism is practiced within the Vatican. He has also claimed that girls are commonly kidnapped by a gang of Vatican police and foreign diplomats. He claimed that these girls are recruited for Vatican parties, and crimes with a sexual motive.

Malachi Martin, an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church published many books exposing the practice of Satanism within the Vatican. He was originally ordained as a Jesuit priest and eventually became Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute.

Martin wrote the following in his book, “The Keys of This Blood.”

“Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope 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 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.”

Hong Kong Dissident Jimmy Lai Slams Catholic Church for Deal with Chinese Communist Party

Hong Kong dissident Jimmy Lai, a devout Catholic, slammed leaders of the Vatican for renegotiating a renewed treaty deal with China, saying the Catholic Church has forfeited its moral authority by not doing more to protect religious believers in the communist nation. 

Lai, a media mogul and billionaire, was arrested last month under a harsh new national security law that mainland China imposed on Hong Kong as part of an intensifying crackdown on political autonomy and dissent on the island. After a public outcry by pro-democracy activists, Lai was released on bail. Earlier this month, a court in Hong Kong found him not guilty of criminal intimidation charges stemming from a separate 2017 case. 

“I’m very disappointed about this Pope,” Lai told Just the News in a video interview from his home in Hong Kong. “I’m very disappointed about what they did by extending the treaty, which is secret, nobody knows what’s happening. And during the last two years, what [Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader] Xi Jinping has done to religion is really horrible. And yet the Vatican is so pleased to extend the pact with them. I just don’t understand.” 

Lai’s criticism was echoed by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in an op-ed for the online magazine First Things earlier this month. 

Pompeo noted that Vatican diplomats have been meeting this month with their Chinese counterparts to negotiate the renewal of a two-year-old provisional agreement between the Holy See and China. The terms of that pact have never been publicly disclosed, Pompeo wrote, but the Church’s hope was that it would improve the condition of Catholics in China by reaching agreement with the Chinese regime on the appointment of bishops, the traditional stewards of the faith in local communities.

“Two years on, it’s clear that the Sino-Vatican agreement has not shielded Catholics from the Party’s depredations, to say nothing of the Party’s horrific treatment of Christians, Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong devotees, and other religious believers,” Pompeo wrote. “The State Department’s 2019 annual report on religious freedom provides an illustrative example in the story of Father Paul Zhang Guangjun, who was beaten and ‘disappeared’ for refusing to join the CCP-run Patriotic Catholic Association. Sadly, his experience is not unique. Communist authorities continue to shutter churches, spy on and harass the faithful, and insist that the Party is the ultimate authority in religious affairs.” 

Lai told Just the News he converted to Catholicism in 1997 because of his devout wife and other family members. At the time, he said, he “was a bit nervous,” because he was told his conversion could make him a target for arrest by CCP leaders.

Since then, as the communist leadership of China has become wealthier and more aggressive against Hong Kong, Lai has urged the Catholic Church to support non-violent resistance in the tradition of leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and Pope John Paul II.

“The Vatican is a supreme authority of moral standard, and the greatest power to fight against the CCP is moral authority,” Lai said. “Look at Hong Kong. We don’t have anything. That’s why we are always against violence. All we have is non-violent and peaceful demonstration, which gets a lot of sympathy and resonance from the world just because peace and non-violence holds such a high moral standard.

Lai said the Vatican “has forsaken the underground Catholic believers by signing the treaty with China,” and urged Pope Francis to cancel the treaty and instead push for religious freedoms, not only for Catholics but for people of all faiths. 

“I don’t think that [the] Catholic Church can do anything if the Vatican already bows to CCP,” Lai said. “The Vatican should stand up as a moral standard and authority of the world, not just Catholic believers. We need the leadership of moral authority that [the] Vatican has forsaken. But we can each of our Catholic believers do our part. And that’s what we are doing here in Hong Kong.”

Mother Teresa’s Order Has Been Caught Trafficking Babies In India

A child care facility in India run by the Missionaries of Charity, part of the Roman Catholic Order and founded by Mother Teresa, has been caught trafficking babies for profit. This is not the first time child care facilities have been connected to immoral and unethical acts like the trafficking of children. It seems to be becoming quite a common discovery.

A lot of information has come to light over the past few years regarding very ‘elite’ people–celebrities,  philanthropists and those portrayed as the bearers of goodwill–being involved in human trafficking. Perhaps this level of fame and fortune comes at a cost? There are a number of examples to choose from, including many high profile figures within the Vatican, high profile celebrities, and members of the Royal Family. You can see multiple examples in an article I recently wrote that focuses on Jeffrey Epstein, here.People in such circles virtually ‘run’ the world and control the media, thus controlling humanity’s perception of them. But things are changing, and people are waking up.

We have to be careful, because it’s quite clear that a massive amount of deception is at work. Just take a look at the Vatican, which has long been rumoured to be involved in Satanic rituals and severe child abuse, and it’s now no secret that they are involved in such things. Multiple members have been accused of strange activities, including George Pell, one of the highest ranking members of the Vatican, who was accused of sexually abusing children. Even those from within have come out and ‘blown the whistle,’ so to speak. For example, thousands of bones have been found beneath the Vatican. It is believed they belonged to about 12 different bodies. The Vatican has not commented on who the bones belonged to or how they got there. Young children were also allegedly kidnapped by members of the Vatican police for sex parties and then murdered. GabrieleAmorth claimed that officials of an unnamed foreign embassy were involved in these activities as well.Amorth was an Italian Roman Catholic Priest and an exorcist of the Diocese of Rome. He claimed to have performed tens of thousands of exorcisms over half a dozen plus decades spent as a Catholic Priest, and has mentioned a number of times how Satanism is practiced within the Vatican.  He has also claimed that girls are commonly kidnapped by a gang of Vatican police and foreign diplomats. Again, he claimed that these girls are recruited for Vatican parties and other crimes with sexual motives. (source)

Malachi Martin, an Irish Catholic priest and writer for the Catholic Church who’s also a Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute, is another individual who’s tried to expose such activities. You can read more about that here.

Not long ago, a massive pedophile ring was uncovered with clear ties to Pope Benedict’s brother. Recently, Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governorate of Vatican City, has implicated multiple people, including Pope Francis, in sexual abuse. You can read more about that here.

I’m not even going to get into other elitist examples like Jeffrey EpsteinNXIVM, the Rockefeller and Rothschild families, or all of the other countless examples that clearly show links to the trafficking of women and children. In fact, NXIVM was connected to multiple child care facilities that have since been shut down since that discovery. You can read more about that by clicking the NXIVM link above, it will take you to articles that go into more detail. In all honesty, some of the most powerful people on the planet and those controlling the ‘systems’ we adhere to should have been investigated long ago.

This is why we have to be careful. A lot of these people, like the Pope and others within the Vatican like George Pell, have been made out to be scholars and people who deserve to be idolized. The crazy thing is that they are idolized, and when millions of people idolize one person, it gives them extreme amounts of power, which means that many people believe they can do no wrong. So, if they’re ever accused of doing wrong, it’s simply deemed a ‘conspiracy theory’ and remains under the radar. But thankfully, this is all changing.

Handing your power over to figures also takes power out of your own hands. By giving your power to others, you leave your mind open to manipulation, instruction, and influence from the person whom you idolize. Someone who is idolized is capable of extreme brainwashing.

Mother Teresa

Recently, the Indian government ordered its state governments to inspect child care facilities that are run by the Missionaries of Charity – a Roman Catholic order founded by Mother Teresa. The order came after the arrests of a nun and an employee accused of baby trafficking.

As NPR points out:

Earlier this month, Indian authorities shut down a shelter home for pregnant, unmarried women run by the order in Ranchi, a city in the eastern state of Jharkhand, after discovering that four infants had been sold, including a 6-month-old boy who changed hands for 50,000 rupees ($730).

A nun, identified as Sister Koncilia, and a staff member, Anima Indwar, were arrested in connection with trafficking. According to The Times of India, Indwar confessed to selling the children.

At the time of the arrests, a dozen pregnant women were living at the shelter, according to Catholic News Agency.

CNA reports that one couple reportedly paid Indwar 120,000 rupees ($1,760) in exchange for a child, but that she later took the child back without returning the money. The couple then tipped off police, according to CNA.

India’s NDTV cites an unnamed police source as saying all four babies were sold within the past year.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen such actions from supposed humanitarian groups. Not long ago, a UN panel discussed the White Helmets’ criminal activities, including organ theft and false flag terrorism. You can watch that discussion and read more about it here. Unsurprisingly, it received absolutely no attention from mainstream media.

Apparently, all child care homes that are run by Missionaries of Charity all over the country are currently being inspected.

When I was reading about this, it reminded me of Peter McKelvie, a former Child Protection Chief in the UK who gained attention when he claimed that senior politicians, military figures and even people linked to the Royal Family were involved in a child sex ring. While working in Hereford and Worcester, he helped convict notorious child abuser Peter Righton, who was once one of the country’s most respected authorities on child care. This highlights a great point, and something that I’ve come across multiple times in my research. Many people who work for national child care protection programs are directly involved in this type of thing. McKelvie  is one of many who told the world that these types of powerful VIP pedophile rings have been running in secrecy for multiple years. (source) Working in child care facilities or with children is one of the ways the system allows these people to do what they do.

On Thursday, Subramanian Swamy, a senior BJP MP, said Mother Teresa’s Bharat Ratna award should be rescinded if the Missionaries of Charity group is found guilty. This obviously doesn’t mean that Mother Teresa was involved in such things. But then again, given what we’ve seen from the Roman Catholic Church, it wouldn’t necessarily surprise me.

According to Global News,

Swamy said his stance wasn’t merely influenced by the baby-trafficking scandal, saying he saw it as the last straw in a long line of criticisms levelled at Mother Teresa over many years.

He cited her loyalty to the late American financier Charles Keating, who was convicted of swindling millions of dollars from small investors in the 1980s — Teresa’s charity benefited greatly from Keating’s donations, and she even wrote to a California Superior Court judge seeking clemency for Keating on account of his being “kind and generous to God’s poor,” according to a letter published by Christopher Hitchens in his book, “The Missionary Position.”

Keating was sentenced to 12 years and seven months in prison, but only served a third of the sentence before his conviction was overturned on a technicality. He died in 2014, two years before the Catholic Church pronounced Mother Teresa a saint.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is that we should be wary of all figures who have extreme fame and popularity and are made to be idolized and worshiped by the masses. The instance humanity does, we give our power away to them and it leaves us open to manipulation. At the end of the day, yeah there are great people out there, who knows, Mother Teresa may have been one of them. But that’s not the point, idolizing somebody else and living according to a doctrine made by someone else prevents us from listening to our own heart.

The Roman Catholic Church Used Unprecedented Legal Trickery To Plunder The American Taxpayer For Billions In Coronavirus Aid Money

EDITORS NOTE: It’s gods will, let the $tacks swell.

The U.S. Roman Catholic Church used a special and unprecedented exemption from federal rules to amass at least $1.4 billion in taxpayer-backed coronavirus aid, with many millions going to dioceses that have paid huge settlements or sought bankruptcy protection because of clergy sexual abuse cover-ups.

From its inception in the early 300’s in Rome, the Roman Catholic Church has always been about the money.

They invented the concept of Purgatory, a hold place where souls go while awaiting Heaven, so they could then sell indulgences to their bible illiterate followers to buy their loved ones out.

Where Do Church Donations Go? The Catholic Church Paid Nearly $4 Billion To Settle Pedophilia Lawsuits

The Roman Catholic Church Used Unprecedented Legal Trickery To Plunder The American Taxpayer For Billions In Coronavirus Aid Money

As recently as 2018, Pope Francis was busy selling these indulgences to Catholics who remain woefully ignorant of what the bible teaches. But their money heist in 2020 is one to break the bank, literally.

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” Revelation 18:7,8 (KJB)

How laughable it is that Roman Catholic priests take a ‘vow of poverty’ while all the while living like kings.

In New York City alone, the Roman Catholic Church took $28,000,000 just to finance its top executive officers, how does that line up with your ‘vow of poverty’?

The amount that the church collected, between $1.4 billion and $3.5 billion, is an undercount.

The Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference, an organization of Catholic financial officers, surveyed members and reported that about 9,000 Catholic entities received loans.

And how much money did you receive from the coronavirus stimulus bailout? Bless me father, for I have sinned…and they laugh themselves all the way to the bank.

AP: Catholic Church Lobbied For Taxpayer Funds, Got $1.4B

FROM THE AP: The church’s haul may have reached — or even exceeded — $3.5 billion, making a global religious institution with more than a billion followers among the biggest winners in the U.S. government’s pandemic relief efforts, an Associated Press analysis of federal data released this week found.

Houses of worship and faith-based organizations that promote religious beliefs aren’t usually eligible for money from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

But as the economy plummeted and jobless rates soared, Congress let faith groups and other nonprofits tap into the Paycheck Protection Program, a $659 billion fund created to keep Main Street open and Americans employed.

By aggressively promoting the payroll program and marshaling resources to help affiliates navigate its shifting rules, Catholic dioceses, parishes, schools and other ministries have so far received approval for at least 3,500 forgivable loans, AP found.

The Archdiocese of New York, for example, received 15 loans worth at least $28 million just for its top executive offices. Its iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue was approved for at least $1 million.

In Orange County, California, where a sparkling glass cathedral estimated to cost over $70 million recently opened, diocesan officials working at the complex received four loans worth at least $3 million.

And elsewhere, a loan of at least $2 million went to the diocese covering Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia, where a church investigation revealed last year that then-Bishop Michael Bransfield embezzled funds and made sexual advances toward young priests.

Simply being eligible for low-interest loans was a new opportunity. But the church couldn’t have been approved for so many loans — which the government will forgive if they are used for wages, rent and utilities — without a second break.

Religious groups persuaded the Trump administration to free them from a rule that typically disqualifies an applicant with more than 500 workers.

Without this preferential treatment, many Catholic dioceses would have been ineligible because — between their head offices, parishes and other affiliates — their employees exceed the 500-person cap.

“The government grants special dispensation, and that creates a kind of structural favoritism,” said Micah Schwartzman, a University of Virginia law professor specializing in constitutional issues and religion who has studied the Paycheck Protection Program. “And that favoritism was worth billions of dollars.”

The amount that the church collected, between $1.4 billion and $3.5 billion, is an undercount.

The Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference, an organization of Catholic financial officers, surveyed members and reported that about 9,000 Catholic entities received loans.

That is nearly three times the number of Catholic recipients the AP could identify.
