Pope Francis and the Catholic Church

Published on September 17, 2017

https://www.yahoo.com/sy/ny/api/res/1.2/6.uDlI69thXQvDNCPUQalA--/YXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjtzbT0xO3c9ODAw/http:/l.yimg.com/yp/offnetwork/350bc63556e73ff7c9b12daadc46c4cc

Today everything is serious, everything matters, and as always, what comes out of a person’s mouth is what brings judgement. Sometimes, it is what a person does not say that buries them. Though there are many good Catholics, it is difficult, to nearly impossible to see the good in the Catholic Institution if you look at its history and its present, which is constantly shrouded with sexual abuse scandals and even a mass grave filled with children resulting from such abuses.

Before we condemn the Pope for his silence about the mistreatment and rape of women, and his betrayal of the Christian religion and the invasion of the West by Muslims, (who have nasty ideas of infidel women), the Pope is tipping his hand by joining a political tidal wave that wants to rip humanity off by making carbon slaves out of everyone. Kind of hard to believe that the world’s leading religious and spiritual leader would use his position to deceive the world. We can understand that kind of behavior from political leaders but from a Pope?

Francis is following the same anti-science tradition that was evident in Galileo’s time. It took 350 years for the Church to admit it is wrong about the sun being the center of the solar system and now Francis is maintaining that the sun does not exist as a factor in driving climate conditions here on earth.

The BBC claims that Pope Francis is condemning climate change sceptics. Pope Francis has warned history will judge world leaders who do not act as he blasted climate change sceptics in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. The Pope has joined an army of global warming fanatics who are desperate:

Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the headline in the Outline. “It’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable.”

The pontiff said the recent storms meant the effects of climate change could be seen “with your own eyes”. There have been four major Atlantic hurricanes in less than three weeks and of course, it is entirely our fault. Francis warned that humanity will “go down” if climate change is not addressed but what he does not admit that the Catholic Church is ‘going down’ and in Europe Islam is replacing it rapidly.

You have the power to open the door for a better health and understanding of your body! Here is the Key

“Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” argued Mark Hertsgaard in the Nation. “Murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

Man is stupid,” said Frances. “Those who deny climate change need to go to scientists and ask them.” He said the scientific community has been “clear and precise” in linking human activities to the ongoing crisis and that “each person has a moral responsibility, bigger or smaller.” Climate change is a “serious matter over which we cannot make jokes,” he said. As we said above what comes out of a person’s mouth is what judges them, and in this case, as the world quickly gets colder, it is the Pope who will look stupid. All global warming fanatics ignore the role of the sun in climate change. However, NASA and many other scientific institutions have been warning for years that the sun is cycling down in terms of its activity.

The Pope obviously does not keep up with climate news

Would like to remind the Pope and all global warming believers that it is still summer. Yet like the last few years, it is already snowing in various places. A winter storm warning was issued last Thursday for much of southern Montana. That snow is about two months early. “We just had a record low temperature in Huston Texas, not what you would expect if temperatures are rising to record highs. It is quite early for snow in the Alps but it is snowing there. We already have had “Significant” mountain snow for Wyoming. WINTER storm warnings for Idaho have also already been issued. In Australia Spring seems to have frozen to a stall. The climate is changing, of that there is no doubt yet the world is full of climate madness. Someone should tell the Pope to pray for global warming because it is turning colder and the world’s agricultural sector will be heavily affected.

More global warming news: De Bilt is the seat of the headquarters of the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute, KNMI. Saturday was the coldest 16th of September ever measured. In De Bilt it was only 12.9 degrees. This broke the old record of 13.4 degrees on September 16, 1972. In addition, “Lake Tahoe had its first snowfall of the season last Tuesday. Will the Pope repent and show humility before the world? I seriously doubt it for he is a man without integrity and seemingly a man without true heart.

Misogynist Pope

The Pope favors the abuse of women and even the rape and genital mutilation of young girls for he will not say a word to defend them. Not a word! I think he is more in love with Islam than his own religion because he insists wrongly that Islam is a religion of peace. From its very first days, Islam has been a religion of war and conquest. Any person can look it up in the history books.

Today women are being attacked, children sexually abused by priests, Muslim men and by western men who follow the rape culture, that all the world’s religions have cemented into human consciousness. The Pope however is too busy defending Islam, a religion that has been butchering men women and children since Mohammed started killing Jews in Mecca.

The Vatican says that Francis, who denounces the idea of violence in God’s name, is convinced that Christian-Muslim dialogue is more important now than ever. Unfortunately, the Pope has yet to deal with the fact that Islam is not open for discussion, not open to any reformation, and thus will always be incompatible with western religion and culture.

Christians in Germany will become a minority in the next 20 years, in Germany at least. The Pope is leading the charge against Christians. Churches are closing like crazy in Europe as Mosques spring up all over the place. Europeans are losing their cultural strength and confidence in the values of their own civilization.

The pope’s views are not shared by all Catholics. Some think he is not a legitimate Pope. Francis “(Bergoglio) is a notorious heretic who has said a mind-boggling number of heresies, engaged in the most scandalous of actions, and has attempted to change doctrine and Church teaching. He is not the pope since a heretic is necessarily outside the Church and, thus, cannot hold ecclesiastical office, especially that of supreme pontiff. If Bergoglio’s “invalidity” is not damnable enough, “Pope Francis” is a neo-Marxist who has repeatedly called for the redistribution of wealth, promoted mass migration, and has denigrated capitalism, accusing it of impoverishing the poor.”

A leading Catholic scholar of Islam, Egyptian-born Father Samir Khalil Samir, said that Francis meant well but was naive. “I think his ignorance of Islam does not help dialogue. He has said often that we know that Islam is a religion of peace but this is simply a mistake,” Samir, who is based in Beirut, told reporters in Rome. “We know there are certainly times of peace and a willingness for peace on the part of many Muslims but I can’t read the Koran and pretend that it is a book that is oriented towards peace,” he said.

World against Women

The principal UN commission charged with promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women has picked 13 new members by secret vote. One selection is raising eyebrows: Saudi Arabia. “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a human rights group that acts as a UN watchdog.

The Pope will not say a word about the the fascination that Muslim men have for gang raping white women. Islam is against women yet the Pope is not against Islam. He has delusions about Islam being a religion of peace when it has always been about war.

The Pope talks wishfully about the interconnectedness of humanity, saying that with age he has grown increasingly convinced that “none of us is an island.” Francis pleaded for greater solidarity in political, economic and scientific endeavors yet has not a word for the women of the world who are under attack from the men and their cherished religions.

When you look at the fact that approximately a third of women have been raped or sexual abused (that is probably a conservative number) we are looking at a billion women. Add the 200 million who have had their genitals mutilated as a symbol of the ugly insanity of men and we have 1.2 billion women who are suffering terribly and the Pope has nothing to say.

Neither the Pope or European leaders appear to care that their continuing migration policies and welfare systems support an entire industry of human traffickers, who prey on the desire of hopeful migrants to reach Europe; the traffickers are making billions.

Having everything to say about Women

The entire situation humanity has trapped itself in is a tragedy, we humans are a tragedy yet we cling to outworn traditions many of which are barbaric. There is no hope for men until they humble themselves and admit that too many of men are sexual barbarians.

The violence that men still inflict on their women in the name of their religion and cultures, on such a massive scale, is what makes us a filthy race. This brutality not only takes place in ISIS-held territory but across most Muslim societies. All around the Islamic world we see women killed, molested, imprisoned, maimed and incarcerated while their men sugar-coat the abuse as “modesty”, “honour”, “divine law” or even “justice”. In the West, women in mass are sexually abused while young, and raped when older.

In India where the Hindu reign, it is not better. In India, where according to the National Crime Records Bureau, 34,651 women reported being raped in 2015, the most recent year on record. It is very difficult to report rape in India as everywhere so these numbers are a vast underestimate. Some people, especially women, have a greater heart than the Pope does. One brought thousands of Indians to the streets to protest the widespread culture of rape and violence against women in 2012. That year, gender specialists ranked India the worst place among G-20 countries to be a woman, worse even than Saudi Arabia where women have to live under the supervision of a male guardian.

In America, crimes against women are also common and lately will have been reading more and more cases of men killing their ex-wives and even their entire families.

“All forms of exploiting women are presented as divine law, sharia, in which women have no say in the world of Islam. All over the Muslim world men are not only permitted, but also invited, to consider woman a pet — to be killed, burned with acid, benzene or a weapon of choice supposedly to preserve a family’s “honor”.

“The deeper horror is that all these abuses — child marriage, confinement, FGM, rape, torture, and legal discrimination — have accomplices. These enablers are often well-meaning people from the West, “multiculturalists” who are reluctant to pass judgement on other people’s customs no matter how brutal they might be.”

The number of women worldwide estimated to have been subject to female genital mutilation has reached 200 million in some studies. Many thousands of young girls develop infections and die. The Pope is searching for world peace but says nothing about these girls and their suffering. If he is the an example of a great spiritual leader God help the human race.

Female genital mutilation predates Islam, but remains prevalent in many North African and some Middle Eastern predominantly Muslim countries. The practice goes on and on with many girls in England being cut even though it is illegal. No one is prosecuted.

Chicago Tribune says:

“However, last week a Michigan physician was charged in a federal indictment for allegedly conspiring to perform female genital mutilation. It is a practice that American feminism has been mostly quiet about the girls. And the left in general has not engaged. It is so quiet that you can’t even hear crickets hiding under the leaves.”

Hirsi Ali said. “In Muslim communities there is the demand that women, girls, should be virgins and a woman’s sexuality is to be controlled and this is an effective and brutal way of doing that.” This is mutilation for a cultural purpose, to rob women of sexual joy and render them as breeders.

Conclusion

Perhaps the Pope is right, we are a stupid race. Even with all the great men and women who have walked to earth, we find ourselves going into the greatest darkness with the greatest potential in history to do harm. Humanity cannot agree about anything it seems and our world religions make sure of that because each one thinks it is the only way. Moreover, with world leaders like our current Pope, and the world’s evil elite right behind him, we can be assured that the prophecies of Apocalypse will soon be upon us.

    No Mary, you are wrong there, it is the Papal system / church that is evil – the people are normal and mislead sinners, like the rest of us.

  • Staceyk

    Let’s not make this about religion or politics my gosh !! It’s not the pope or the president, you are just as bad by causing division. It’s fine to talk about facts like temperature changes and your opinion on things (which I agree in a lot of what you say) but please refrain from putting everything into neat little boxes like this religion or that religion. There are complete idiots everywhere just like there are some really good people. You have a lot of great things to say about health but not quite so sure about your ideas on politics and religion Please keep up the good work on enlightening us about how to take care of our bodies

    People need to see the movie THRIVE

  • Lou

    Pope Francis is clearly a ringer for the NWO; put in office to sell the NWO Tyranny to the obedient masses attending mass.

    Its so sad. I was hoping for the Church to OPPOSE the mass murdering NWO. Well we still have God on our side.

    Francis when you pray WHAT are you praying for?

    • Joel W

      In addition, when he prays, WHO is he praying to???

  • MaxWebXperienZ

    Catholicism was the biggest organized crime on earth prior to the reformation. They had to change things up or lose members so they moved a little bit towards true Christianity [which is quite simple by comparison] but they still suck. The current Pope is from the school of Liberation Theology which is Marxism disguised as Christianity. I don’t pay any attention to that jerk at all, it’s the same stuff as BLM and antifa and it’s pure destruction

  • Phillis Stein

    I, for one, wish people would quit quoting the Bible as if it were the absolute truth – it is a book, written by men! Whilst I believe in a source creator and also can see some beautiful nuggets of truth in the Bible, I am not convinced that it is not merely the usual – i.e. a load of rubbish with enough truth strewn through it to make it believable. All religions are simply other “control systems” and when you one day get to ask the question about where they came from and what their purpose was – you will all be very disappointed. Having said that, there is some great ancient wisdom in there – ‘know thyself’ is an example. IF God indeed had human emotions, then I expect he would be very disappointed at how he is portrayed. I also believe that if Jesus had meant to set up a religion, then he would have done so, and he may even have written a book! He did not do so. What does that tell you? He came here as a teacher to show us what we are all capable of. Like I said, there are some fabulous truths in the Bible, but there is a lot of rubbish and false history in there also. Patriarchal religions have been responsible for a LOT of harm in this world, and they continue to do so. They are effectively what enables us to destroy our beautiful mother earth – the divine feminine incarnate. They have also been responsible for more horror and division than virtually anything else and thus, by definition, are EVIL. Anything which divides us is evil – period.

    As for “climate change.” Let’s note that it was first referred to as “global warming”, but then that was quietly changed. It’s a pathetic title, because of course the climate is changing all the time – always has, always will. It has certainly been hotter on the planet in the past than it is now – otherwise how did the Romans manage to grow their grapevines along Hadrian’s wall? Human activity makes little difference in terms of temperature – in fact rises in temperature lead to increased levels of CO2, NOT the other way around. Why is CO2 being demonized? For the same reason natural medicine and anything else good is demonized – because there is an agenda – simple. My view is that if the planet (who I believe to be a great living being) is indeed warming up (which I think she IS trying to do), then she will have a very good reason for doing so. Perhaps she is warming up because we need MORE CO2? The real issue in my view is something else – we are always distracted from another issue – the real issue is the horrific rape and pollution of our planet.

    The whole CO2 thing is merely an excuse so that when our atmosphere is being ionized with chemicals and metals (yes, I’m talking about chemtrailing), people will think that it is our governments trying to save us! It should be clear to all by now that our leaders do not care a fig about our planet or the people they presumably serve.

    None of these “systems” can be seen to be serving us any longer (if they ever were) and so it is time for humanity to realize this and create alternate systems that DO work for us – and when I say us, I mean ALL of us. The whole system needs to come down entirely and we need to start again. We do not need to live like this – there are better ways and I’m confident we’re all smart enough to create something way better than this rubbish that we’re forced to deal with in life.

    I know what I’ve written here will be controversial for some people, but it is what I currently believe. When I say currently – it’s just like science – you have to be willing to change your point of view as new information and insights come to hand. Otherwise you end up with dogma. Take what resonates with you and leave the rest. I’m not interesting in converting anyone or even in being right – I seek to merely present an alternative viewpoint for consideration.

    We are one.

    The only reason we are able to be deceived is because we are constantly being divided – when we are divided, we are easier to control. End of story – and it’s such an OLD story.

      What is taught in the Bible that you disagree with Phillis? Or have you ever read or studied it?

      • Phillis Stein

        Yes I have and I continue to look at it – because there is a lot of great stuff in there – I just don’t happen to blindly believe in every word – because at the end of the day it was actually written by human beings who are subject to error, mis-translation, misinterpretation and so on.

        When I first went to church as a child I was actually afraid of God – I KNEW this was not right at some level of my being, and it isn’t.

        I do not believe in a God who supposedly gifts us free will and then supposedly sets out Commandments and supposedly punishes those who do not meet certain standards.

        I have taken the time to “Know Thyself” and so I take what resonates with me and I leave the rest for others to believe should they wish to do so.

        I know what I know and I don’t try to push that on others and I don’t judge them for their beliefs, but I’m happy with mine. In fact, I’m much happier with MY view of God than that of the one presented to me in the Bible. That’s what I’m here for – to have MY own experience of things, NOT to blindly follow what someone else tells me is the truth.

        • vew573

          “blindly follow what someone else tells me is the truth.”…. It does seem that many do just that. My family history was Baptist. My grandfather was a Baptist minister. If what he preached was truly what the Bible teaches, I would probably be an atheist. However, through my personal study of the Bible I was able to see that this was not the case. Studying the Bible has helped me to understand the purpose of life. It is filled with prophecies reflecting detailed knowledge o the future….something impossible for humans. This is what first proved to me that the Bible had to be inspired by God. I will give just one example.
          Prophecy: Isa. 44:24, 27, 28; 45:1-4: “Jehovah . . . the One saying to the watery deep, ‘Be evaporated; and all your rivers I shall dry up’; the One saying of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd, and all that I delight in he will completely carry out’; even in my saying of Jerusalem, ‘She will be rebuilt,’ and of the temple, ‘You will have your foundation laid.’ This is what Jehovah has said to his anointed one, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have taken hold of, to subdue before him nations, so that I may ungird even the hips of kings; to open before him the two-leaved doors, so that even the gates will not be shut: ‘Before you I myself shall go, and the swells of land I shall straighten out. The copper doors I shall break in pieces, and the iron bars I shall cut down. . . . For the sake of my servant Jacob and of Israel my chosen one, I even proceeded to call you by your name.’” (Writing by Isaiah was completed by about 732 B.C.E.)
          ********* Fulfillment: Cyrus had not been born when the prophecy was written. The Jews were not taken into exile to Babylon until 617-607 B.C.E., and Jerusalem and its temple were not destroyed until 607 B.C.E. In detail the prophecy was fulfilled starting in 539 B.C.E. Cyrus diverted the waters of the Euphrates River into an artificial lake, the river gates of Babylon were carelessly left open during feasting in the city, and Babylon fell to the Medes and Persians under Cyrus. Thereafter, Cyrus liberated the Jewish exiles and sent them back to Jerusalem with instructions to rebuild Jehovah’s temple there.—The Encyclopedia Americana (1956), Vol. III, p. 9; Light From the Ancient Past (Princeton, 1959), Jack Finegan, pp. 227-229; “All Scripture Is Inspired of God and Beneficial” (New York, 1983), pp. 282, 284, 295.

          Here’s just a small fraction of the information that I have found about the accuracy of the Bible that has come down to us today.

          When the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947,
          scholars could at last compare the Hebrew Masoretic text to what appeared in
          Bible scrolls that had been written more than a thousand years earlier. A
          member of the editorial team of the Dead Sea Scrolls concluded that one scroll “provides
          irrefutable proof that the transmission of the biblical text through a period
          of more than one thousand years by the hands of Jewish copyists has been
          extremely faithful and careful.”

          The Chester Beatty Library in Dublin,
          Ireland, features a collection of papyri that represents nearly every book of
          the Christian Greek Scriptures, including manuscripts dating from the second
          century C.E.—only about 100 years after the Bible was completed. “Although the
          Papyri supply a wealth of new information on textual detail,” The Anchor
          Bible Dictionary observes, “they also demonstrate remarkable stability in
          the transmission history of the biblical text.”

          “No other ancient book has anything like such
          early and plentiful testimony to its text,” wrote Sir Frederic Kenyon about the
          Christian Greek Scriptures, “and no unbiased scholar would deny that the text
          that has come down to us is substantially sound.” And regarding the Hebrew
          Scriptures, scholar William Henry Green stated: “It may be safely said that no
          other work of antiquity has been so accurately transmitted.”

          If you have a particular question, I will try to share what I have learned. Otherwise, have a nice day. I always like to hear other peoples point of view and how they came to believe what they do.

  • Patriot

    I dont think the Pope is misguided in the sense he doesnt know any better. I believe he is very deliberate in everything he speaks about / calls for. That makes him dangerous rather than stupid. Faceboot below said it well.
    As for telling Trump not to build a wall. I will agree on the day they take down all the high walls surrounding the Vatican.

  • Julia Dosby

    Why should we care about climate change? Fighting about global warming or cooling… We can’t change the situation in Muslim world. We can’t prevent immigration in this new era of communication. . There is more threat is coming. The ocean is dying. My family visited Cancun this year. Plastic, weeds, algae are in the sea everywhere. There is almost no fish and snorkeling is miserable even at designated spots though for instance Cozumel usually was the best place for snorkeling. If corals and reefs disappear there is no more nature made barriers for underwater cyclones. We all’ll be swept out by hurricanes. Animal wastes, chemical plants and nuclear wastes are buried all over North America and we are suppose to be civilized countries. So many citizens die of cancer. So many children are left without parents.

  • Jamie

    The current pope is not a real pope, it is a fact that no one can replace a living pope. In fact a true reigning pope is not allowed to step down.Therefore the “previous” living pope is still the pope and he is still living in the Vatican quietly. The man currently masquerading as the pope is a marxist communist and has always been one. I am a Catholic and my family on my maternal side were popes. I have studied my family of popes and the Catholic religion for over 30 years. The true Catholic religion stands, but there are mighty forces that have gained entrance with the plan to destroy the Holy Church from the inside out. Don’t abandon the church, rather abandon and ignore this man calling himself the current pope. We need to advocate for him to step down immediately. I tell everyone to put this fool on ignore. And to please advocate for his dismissal. Thank-you for this essay Dr Sircus. I send everyone here I know and everyone I meet.

      He is a Jesuit, with fealty only to that order. By default, a NWO Luciferian.

  • Jean

    Religions divide people and I think that is against God’s teachings. How can we love one another if we think our religion is better than any other? As far as climate change goes, it is changing. I doubt anyone can really, positively determine why. It seems to be constantly changing. For me, I support the actions promoted by those who believe we are causing climate change, because those actions also mean cleaner air to breathe and an end to the destruction of our planet from fracking etc. God gave us a beautiful place to live and we should preserve it.

  • Richard Muccillo MDDCM

    Religion is a cult used to control people and is the scourge of the world responsible for racism and hate —-no god of any belief made up religion–stupid man made it up –the only GOD is the UNIVERSE and mother nature–not nice to try and FOOL it or CONTROL IT! AND IT WILL NEVER fly!

  • franknfree

    About time we put this religion crap behind us, and stopped listening to the vapid opinions of stupid men in fancy dresses – especially his assholiness.

  • John Ilieff

    As a recovered catholic (it’s been over 30 years since I last ingested any of their lies) it distresses me to know that there are still people out there (millions?) who consider this a religion worth supporting .

    Years ago, it was suggested that I ponder on Gen 3:22 “The LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of US, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever'” One of US? I thought there was only supposed to be one god. The same person informed me that Jesus wasn’t born on Christmas day. I was incredulous and angered. “Of course he was – every body knows that!” I blurted out. Well, according to the bible, their was no room at the inn because everybody was in town for the census. It would hardly be practical to conduct a census in the middle of winter. And the shepherds were out in the fields, asleep with their flocks. Again, not a winter past time. Apparently, he was born around spring time. Google it and see. It’s interesting to note that Jesus proclaimed himself to be the way – not the destination. Yet we’re meant to have a relationship primarily with the son, not the father. Anyway, enough of Christianity. The cure for religion is spirituality. That’s my take on it anyway.

    My initial reason for participating in this chat, was because I feel you, Mark, are providing such an excellent service in health education. Like Truth Seeker, I applaud your outspokenness. But only in the medical / health field. I unsubscribed quite some time ago, citing my disappointment about your what I perceived to be, repeated attacks on Muslims. You cite the rape of white girls, amongst other things. This aspect seemed to be highlighted a number of times. I could trawl the net and provide you with statistics on how many African American males rape white women. How many Chinese males rape white women. And how many Caucasian males rape white women. Please consider refraining from this hateful crusade you seem to be enthusiastically embracing. You’re an educated and intelligent man. Unfortunately, there are a multitude of ignorant stupid and narrow minded people out there who will take your words and use them to formulate a hatred towards all Muslims, as opposed to the religion that spawned the radical behaviour of a relative minority. Please find it in your heart to leave the hate mongering to the mindless masses, and focus on uplifting humanity with your wisdom and knowledge. We need people like you who are not cowered by big pharma and their cohorts.

    I feel your response / reaction to Jose Eduardo Ramos was uncalled for, and frankly, it makes you look bad. You’ve provoked a variety of emotions, and some of your content can be viewed as offensive, so it is not surprising that some people might respond angrily or b e, as you put it ,”aggressive”. Your “shut your mouth” is also aggressive. Pot and kettle. Because of your position, you have an unspoken obligation to conduct yourself in a suitable manner. I hope you have the humility to apologise to him.

    Good on you Yvee Loke – I enjoyed both of your comments.

    Truth Seeker, please know that God doesn’t judge. Or punish. The creator is not vindictive, violent, insecure, and all the other negative stuff portrayed in the old testament. And if you are true to your name, maybe you’d consider googling subjects like “truth about the bible” and “changes made to the bible” (so many people refer to “it says in the bible…..” as though it’s incontrovertible truth.) And if you’re really thirsting for truth, try googling Pleiadians and then go on from there. .

    Anyway Mark, I recently renewed my subscription (obviously) and I shall leave it current. I’ll just not read any of your articles unless they pertain specifically to health. Because what you know and share about aspects of health are too important to me to “shut your mouth” as it were.
    Regards,
    John.

    • Mark Sircus

      Wow John, its rare almost unheard of to get such a complete and caring communication from another being. About rape I used to be, for a short time, a rape counsellor…have written a book on sexuality and relationships, and a lot of writing on rape itself……as you point out everyone rapes…..and there are many forms of rape like chemical rape and medical rape and financial rape etc….much of our culture of rape comes from religious building blocks…..in terms of religion Islam wins the prize in terms of history and in terms of current events in terms of hate and aggressiveness against all infidels and even against each other….my special spat with Islam is its treatment of women, their own women and the special case of infidel women and they don’t have to be white to qualify. The ugliest part of humanity is seen in this downgrading of women…..makes men ugly……..I see you have a hard time understanding where I am coming from or what motivates me…it certainly is not hate……Because I have worked intimately with women who have been raped or abused as children I HATE TO HEAR ABOUT WOMEN BEING RAPED….I do not turn red and burn with anger….I use the word hate as an opposite to love….I also hate to hear about hate of homosexuals….I love Russia for instance but hate that it is homophobic country. Anyway bottom line my divine mission is obviously not just with health or medicine for individuals, it is for mental and spiritual health not only for individuals, but for families and humanity as a whole. I think today’s essay shows that . In terms of Jose your communication is exactly opposite to his. This is communication….his was pure aggressiveness that said absolutely nothing……but sure a kettle and we are really all one secretly……almost every time one communicates about controversial stuff people like him communicate like that, even you did long time ago…telling me what to do or what to say and not say, it is hard for people to listen to anything they disagree with and it is hard to impossible for people to listen to anything from another that suggests they might have to change (same as saying people cannot listen to anything about themselves they don’t want to know about)………….how about this formulation…religion is a rape of spirituality….so thanks for your real communication…very refreshing and rewarding….

        Hello Mark,
        I appreciated the time and thought that went into your reply. I was also significantly disappointed. I’m right and you’re wrong. That was the place I was coming from.
        When events occur that result in other peoples’ anger or condemnation, I’m often heard saying “There’s a reason for what they did.” A “favourite” story of mine is about how years ago, here in Australia, a woman ended the lives of her young children, but was unsuccessful in ending her own. “Ordinary” people were asked to comment. The general consensus was that she ought to either thrown in prison and never be let out, or that she be killed. I was appalled at this sentiment. It seemed that nobody was prepared to ask why she would do such an extreme act. What had happened / was happening to bring her to a place where she felt she had no alternative? And yet, with my initial response to your article, I didn’t afford you the same courtesy / consideration. Hence my disappointment. In myself. Your words were very powerful for me. They were / are so genuine and open. My heart area was energised, and my eyes watered from my exposure to your shared truth. It shows me that I still have so much changing to do. My defence of Muslims (but I’m not necessarily defending Islam) comes partly from my tendency to support the underdog. (Some childhood thing I imagine….) I haven’t done extensive research on Islam. One thing I did come across which impressed me was that ages ago, Muslims and Christians fought over Jerusalem. The Muslims won. Contrary to what the Christians believed, the leader of the Muslims informed the Christians that they would not destroy the Christian churches. Basically, they said “we respect your right to worship in your own way”. Had the war gone the other way, well……….). You’re totally correct Mark – it is difficult to hear things that we disagree with. That might require change. So bearing that in mind – that I’m obviously biased, I still have to express my opinion that Christianity has been / remains the worst religion to infect this planet. I cite the history of the treatment of women. The persecution of “non-believers.” The destruction of libraries (and other untold atrocities) perpetrated by the Crusaders; the burning of witches etc etc. And then the crimes against people by so called Christian nations. Eg, Invasion and subjugation of natives of India, Vietnam, Africa, Australia, America, to name a few. The dropping of not one but TWO atomic bombs on civilians in Japan, primarily as a science experiment. The destruction of their own twin towers, and the false blaming of outside agencies, in order to justify the illegal invasion of Iraq. (Oh, I could go on and on about American foreign policy and the impact that it’s has had, and is still having, on the people of this world. Their initial support and funding to get Saddam Hussein into power; their direct / indirect funding, arming and training of organisations such as Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS ). You spoke of not turning red and burning with anger. But I do so understand that happening for the persecuted victims of the USA. And yes – I’ve often tried the “look for a reason for what they’re doing / have done….”, but I still can’t reconcile the concept of “most bullies come from a place of fear”, with all the untold amounts of suffering perpetuated. God forgive America. : ) Anyway, here I am pontificating again (pun intended) and the real reason I began this was to say something along the lines of how gracious you are, given my attack on you. How I feel a significant respect for you, and your views. (And how you came to have them). How I relate to your outrage in the face of rape. Or injustice in general. I also apologise for my telling you what to do/ not to do, what to say/ not to say. I have no right. And it serves no purpose other than my own. And even then, in so doing, I understand that I deny myself the gifts of open dialogue, which you have beautifully demonstrated. As for your “…religion is a rape of spirituality…, it is succinct and profound. I love it! With your permission, I’d like to adopt that, and use it myself. In closing, I have learned about another, as well as myself, because of your words. There has been a shift in my understanding, and I like to think that in future, I’ll take more time to consider an individual’s words / point of view, and to take care to respond, instead of react. I sincerely thank you.
        Regards,
        John.

          John I read your reply really late last night after sitting under the stars at one in the morning after an incredible day, probably one of the strongest in my life….and your communication was the icing on the cake so to speak. What I am going to say to you is kind of official, meaning it comes from me as a Communication Psychologist…which includes the Psychology of Listening, and it comes from me being the last of the Mohegans in terms of a process called Creative Conflict…such a strong process that humans simply are not interested because it demands listening as a first step….your communication response is the best I have ever seen in all my years online, the deepest, most meaningful and I congratulate you….I would like you to entertain the possibility of me making a newsletter out of our communication process for you have become a light that others should see….and yes you can use and make your own “religion is a rape of spirituality” after all you inspired me to create that phrase….where are you from?

  • agnostic

    I was raised a Christian and truly believed god and Jesus loved me till my father started raping me at 6. Then I watched my parents go to church and I understood the complete hypocrisy of religion by age 12. That’s when my dad moved on to my sister or brother so I wouldn’t get pregnant. I’m an agnostic now. I truly believe a loving God would not allow these things to happen. So there is no loving God. And the fact that he’s male anyway leads me to believe he was invented by men to further their desires and allow them any transgression they committed to be forgiven. In other words BS. I BELIEVE IN mother nature and she’s getting her revenge now shaking us off like fleas on a dog. The earth will survive. …we will not. So what we are the destructor species.

    • Mark Sircus

      I could not agree with you more about that kind of God and the religions of men…I am Jewish by birth but to me the first terrorist was Moses….does not make me any less Jewish….I have had an intimate relationship with God for several decades actually almost 40 years…….I see God as God not loving and certainly not hating…….I found myself, have to admit, in one line in the bible which said “Seek first the kingdom of heaven and everything will be given to you.” I bought that hook line and sinker and forty years later it has come true, everything and I mean everything has been given to me….now I have to get to the next part which said, “And even greater things you shall do.” As I said to John above I hate to hear about rape and that really means I have a lot of compassion and empathy, it is truly said that we are such an insane race…..

    • Sam Sam

      Hi,
      I am so sad and angry in the right way about what happened to you.
      Hundreds of thousands of lovely little children are experiencing the same in Islamic culture and many others all over the world as we speak.
      I can totally see why you have come to the conclusion that you have, and there is no judgement of you in my heart at all.
      I say this because i also was raised in a Christian family who totally believed in emulating Jesus and trying to please him first in all things.
      My parents loved me so much, my Dad in particular showed to me the Love of Christ in his gentle supportive, encouraging and compassionate servant type nature.
      He was not perfect, being just a man as i am but there was the right love with no rape no bad language, no violence, no alcohol or drugs and this was coupled with lots of helping others, hard work and family pursuits like camping and building and nature appreciating activities. They are 50 years married and my wife’s parents are exactly the same.
      There is hope for some children.
      I was blessed that Dad and Mum, even though they made mistakes, actually lived what Christ really taught every day, God’s template for us as a family.
      I have done the same for my Two Children 21, and 16 yrs old now and they are saved and love the Lord Jesus with all their hearts, they are making independant decisions on every thing in life based on what Jesus would want them to do and even though it’s not perfect, it’s as good as it gets for a family of people who have to constantly be careful to live for Christ not their sinful nature.
      I have just read out your testimony to my family to help them realise how fortunate they have been and to remember and think of you and others in their prayers.
      I have let you know this, not to boast about my upbringing, but because i couldn’t control my birth or upbringing just the same way that you couldn’t choose yours.
      I am telling you this because I feel upset that your folks could use God to cover for their behaviour, Jesus himself would condemn this as hypocracy as he did in so many cases in the scriptures.
      God does record all things, and takes all into account in the final time he has appointed.
      This does not mean however that The Bible or Jesus or his truth is the problem.
      People can pretend at Christianity and not have had a heart change or be truly saved. In saying this, even Christians have sinned and do sin in their hearts daily.
      Any person claiming Christianity though, and thinking they can proceed in their sin just to be forgiven is fooling themselves.God is onto that, you better be sure of it.
      But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.1Samuel 16; 7
      The BIble also says to be careful about following your heart and not God.
      Jeremiah 17: 9- 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
      We are mindful that our hearts can often justify things for the wrong reasons and lead us away from God’s awesome ways very quickly.

      There is going to be a judgment and people who have done these things in the name or under the cover of Christ will be judged so severely.( Mathew 18;6)
      My plea, from my heart to yours as I sit here with tears in my eyes, is that you look at The Lord Jesus Christ who does love you and did die for your own personal sin and not at your Parents for the example or the answer.
      Don’t give up on God because of man, let him do a work in your heart apart from, and despite what man has done.
      A question I would like to ask is how could a creator, God possibly give us as a human race, our relative choice, and then step in every time someone did something wrong.
      We would be the first to complain that he was interfearing with us here on earth and not letting us make our own decisions.Apart from this we wouldn’t get anything done because he would be constantly stepping in and correcting everyone all the time, because we are constantly falling short of his perfect nature and standard.
      The Bible tells us he has stepped into history in the past in big ways, one of which was when the days of Noah were so incredibly wicked, and the wickedness was so widespread that there was almost nil goodness remaining. I am sure you know of this account ; sexual perversion and violence prevailed. (Genesis 6:5)
      We are seeing an exponential development of these things again and we read God has plans again for a final time.
      I have seen real Christianity where Christ “is” center and psuedo Christianity where human heart is the center.
      Please forgive me if i offend you at all, in any of this, it is not my intention to do so, only to let you know that I will be praying and thinking of you.
      That hopefully the latter part of your life will be blessed with better things and that you would come to a personal relationship with Jesus in this life before his return.
      Hang in there and be of good courage !

  • Cathyaz

    Excellent article. I am Catholic and it is appalling how many times this Pope attempts to influence his flock with comments that are not of the spiritual nature. He should mind his business of all things spiritual as leader of the church, and keep his business out of other matters. Perhaps if he did, we wouldn’t have so many other problems within the church.

  • subsistent

    the truth has been manipulated over time…..nobody knows the truth anymore, if ‘we’ ever did, where we came from. Religions today and the Pope are all a fraud.

    • vew573

      The only way anyone can learn the “truth” is to personally study the Bible for themselves.
      So why does God permit wickedness. At times it may seem to us that the best
      thing would be simply to get rid of everyone who is wicked. We long for an end
      to wickedness, and yet we have experienced it for relatively few years when
      compared with the time that wickedness has existed. How must God feel? For thousands of years people
      have blamed him, even cursed him, for the bad conditions they have endured.
      Yet, these are caused, not by him, but by Satan and by wicked men. God has the
      power to destroy the wicked. Surely there must be good reasons why he has exercised
      such restraint. If God’s way of handling the situation is different from what
      we would recommend, should that surprise us? His experience is much greater
      than man’s, and his view of the situation is much broader than that of any
      human.—Compare Isaiah 55:8, 9; Ezekiel 33:17.

      Wisely he is allowing time for the settling
      of vital issues:
      (1) The righteousness and rightfulness of God’s rule was challenged in
      Eden. (Gen. 2:16, 17; 3:1-5) (2) The integrity of all of God’s
      servants in heaven and on earth was called into question. (Job 1:6-11; 2:1-5;
      Luke 22:31) God could have destroyed the rebels (Satan, Adam, and Eve)
      immediately, but that would not have settled matters. Might does not prove that
      one’s cause is right. The issues raised were moral ones. God’s allowing of time
      was, not to prove any point to himself, but to permit all creatures with free
      will to see for themselves the bad fruitage produced by rebellion against his
      rulership, also to afford them opportunity to demonstrate where they personally
      stand on these vital matters. With these issues settled, never again would
      anyone be permitted to disrupt the peace. The good order, harmony, and
      well-being of the entire universe depend upon the sanctifying of God’s name, the treating of him with heartfelt honor by all intelligent creatures. For more information or answer to other questions

    Along with FGM, I truly wish you’d talk about Male Genital Mutilation. It’s all the same, violence against boys and girls alike. There’s zero reason to cut off a very useful and tender part of a boy’s penis for the sake of religion or of matching his father. This is another crime against our children that must stop immediately! Please include it in your writings. Thank you.

    • Yvee Loke

      J.A. – male circumcisions have been done (in the West) in hospitals, by doctors, for health reasons, therefore cannot be called “mutilation”. Just my humble opinion.

      • 7LibertyForAll

        The “health” reasons don’t stand up to scrutiny; just another steaming pile.

    • Jamie

      Yes I agree! I have read and researched circumcision, it is an act of violence against a baby, child , man. People have no idea what really goes on at the hospital during this awful procedure. Everyone needs to research online as well as read the multitude of books that have been written by men who have had the procedure destroy their lives. Moms and Dads please don’t let your sons be circumcised.

      • vew573

        The practice of male circumcision appears to be an advantage in the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, such as AIDS, says the French magazine La Revue Française du Laboratoire. The magazine cites three independent medical studies that show male circumcision (the removal of the foreskin) to be a factor in curbing the spread of AIDS. Research on laboratory monkeys has shown that the tissues of the male foreskin contain a higher number of cells susceptible to infection by the AIDS virus than other tissues. Furthermore, a Canadian study conducted in 140 different regions of Africa revealed a higher incidence of AIDS among groups not practicing circumcision than among those who do. Another study found fewer cases of the infection among American heterosexual men who were circumcised

        • jamie

          Sorry that is a fallacy, the study was flawed from the start. I have done extensive research on circumcision and it is not advantageous in anyway to a man. In fact it is actually an act of violence against a healthy and necessary body part. The fact that you answered with the old fallacy shows the amount of brain washing that has been done in the western in regard to the necessity of circumcision. Circumcision should not ever be done to a baby man or child. Please do more extensive research. A mans sexuality is deeply compromised with circumcision. Men who were circumcised as babies or young children do not realize what they lost. However men who were circumcised as adults absolutely do know what they have lost,as do their partners. It affects the women in their lives as well. I repeat do not circumcise your boys. Men who have been circumcised as adults are all over the internet and have also written books about the horrors they experienced after being circumcised.

            to reverse its position on the matter of circumcision. In 1971 the group held
            that there were “no valid medical indications” to warrant circumcising newborn
            males routinely. However, recent studies have shown that circumcision may help
            prevent kidney and urinary-tract infections, which can be quite dangerous. In
            one study, uncircumcised boys were 11 times more likely to suffer urinary-tract
            infections than circumcised boys. The pediatric academy now says that
            circumcision “has potential medical benefits and advantages.”

      The sons of Christian parents are not
      required to be circumcised. (Galatians 5:6) Hence, daughters of Christians are certainly
      not required to undergo either excision or infibulation. Is female
      circumcision, then, merely a matter of conscience?

      Well, some governments have banned it. In
      those lands Christians should obey the law and not circumcise their daughters.
      (Romans 13:1-5) But what if female circumcision is customary and not against
      the law? Remember, female circumcision is dangerous. Little girls die because
      of it. According to the Bible, when we deliberately put someone’s life
      unnecessarily in danger, we could become bloodguilty. (Compare 1 Chronicles
      11:17-19.) Christian parents would not want to incur bloodguilt by risking
      their daughters’ lives in this way.—Psalm 51:14.

      Female circumcision is also very painful. The
      mental and physical suffering that it causes can last through the teen years
      right into marriage and childbirth. Is this the way loving parents treat their
      children? No. Christian mothers ‘cherish their own children.’ (1 Thessalonians
      2:7) Christian parents ‘give good gifts to their children.’ (Matthew 7:11)
      Female circumcision may be an ancient tradition, but it is not a ‘good gift.’

      Also, doctors can find no health benefits in
      the operation. Neither is it necessary for hygiene

    Mark, you should talk about what you know!

    • Mark Sircus

      And you should keep your judgemental mouth shut. What are you talking about anyway, your communication says nothing except it shows aggressiveness.

    • Mark Sircus

      Looking at the other comments so far it seems Jose you are the ignorant one and that would explain your aggressiveness. Hope you have the humility to apologise.

    • Mark Rotherham

      Jose, excellent, you exposed the man with eight short words. “Dr” Sircus’s replies are an object lesson in hypocrisy. If he can be this wrong in areas of important public concern I wouldn’t touch his private medical opinion with a barge pole either.

    Great article Dr Sircus. I am an ex-Catholic after having compared the Bible to the practices of the Catholic church – and what we are witnessing is God’s judgement on Western civilisation because most churches are country clubs and people are following these evil popes and other religious leaders rather than looking exclusively to the living Word of the Holy One of Israel. Catholics need to get ahold of an Old King James Bible and start pouring through it – comparing it to their Catholic Catechism book. It’s not just this pope who is evil – the whole Catholic church is evil as well as many other churches today (like ‘name it and claim it’ Charismatics). Get ready sheeple – He’s coming back real soon! PS: The Bible is the only book that says “for all have fallen short, there is none righteous, no not one” – so it is the only ‘way’ that tells the truth to begin with. Man needs a righteousness he can’t produce himself. Grace means ‘unmerited favour’.

      The Catholic Church is not evil, just filled with imperfect people, like every other institution!!!

        Hi Mary. I know where you are coming from. The people in the Catholic church do seem very sincere. The trouble is though they are not listening to the warnings of God in the Bible. In Matthew 6:7 for example, Jesus says ‘But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.’ and in verse 9 he tells us ‘in this manner pray ye’ and goes on to recite the ‘Our Father’. You have to laugh – he said not to do repetitious prayer and is just telling us – here’s an example of how to pray – and we’ve turned the ‘Our Father’ into a repetitious prayer. You know how the priests tell people to say 5 Our Fathers and 10 Hail Marys? And of course the Bible is clear about who to pray to – i.e. ‘Our Father, who art in Heaven’. He never told us to pray to Mary or the ‘saints’ (all believers are defined as ‘saints’ in the Bible actually). What I discovered is that definitions in the Catholic church are different than definitions in the Bible. The ‘Evil’ is not only the pedofiles in the Catholic church (who are often priests) – but also – especially – the misrepresentation of who God is and the way of salvation he provided. The Catholic Catechism teaches that the ‘saints by their own good works attained their own salvation’ and the Cannons of the Catholic Church say ‘If anyone thinks he is saved by the righteousness of Christ alone without any of his own good works, let him be anathema’. These things are the exact opposite of what the Bible teaches. This ‘misrepresenting’ of who God is – in his eyes – is very evil.

    This Pope was, like Obama, a plant. Far too many political agendas devised from others so long ago.. seemingly to continue the plight of what we are continuing to see. Many issues at hand, not only climate change diatribe, but underground funded entities- all surrounding the Catholic history.. of which many are blinded from believing or understanding. This Pope certainly has an agenda, and the world is witnessing it daily. I am not Catholic, but I do have family members that are. It is my wish that their blindness to all of this one day will be removed. The sooner-the better.

  • Mary Lennox

    I am a devout Catholic and have been all my life. Dr. Sircus, I agree with you completely! This Pope has no business touting climate change! He is a socialist, and ripping the Church apart from within. He is a man who smiles on the outside while brooking no criticism and lopping off the heads (figuratively) of anyone who disagrees with him. He is causing a schism in the Church. May God remove him soon!

    • Mark Sircus

      Coming from a devout Catholic your words hold special meaning for me. I am devoted to Mary, Queen of Heaven and have built a beautiful shrine for her in my Sanctuary here in Brazil.

      • Truth Seeker

        First let me say – I think you’re great Dr Sircus! Love your work and also like your outspokenness! I understand your devotion to Mary, and years ago I would have loved what you did – until I realised that Mary said in Luke 1:47 ‘And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour’ (admitting she like myself was a sinner) and also read in 1 Timothy 2:5 ‘For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;’ which made me stop praying to Mary and the ‘saints’. I only ‘woke up’ and realised that I had been believing things contrary to the Bible when I bought a copy of the Catholic catechism (which is the size of the Bible itself) and started to read the Bible comparing it to the traditions I had been brought up with my whole life. Trouble is I had been too busy to read the entire Bible before this. Time is short I think and we can’t depend on getting the truth from Priests or Pastors as we are in a time of ‘great darkness’ as you have recognised. I’ve actually seen a strong parallel between the lies we are fed by the medical/pharmeceutical industry – and the lies we have been told by many of the big churches. Until we study the original (the Bible!) carefully – it’s very easy to fall for a counterfeit. God warned us in Amos 8:11 (an end time prophesy for our time!) “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:” So hard to HEAR with so much programming from big churches etc. The only Way is to go straight to the Lord himself who says in John 14:6 ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ When asked what would be the sign of His coming and the end of the world – Jesus replied (in Matthew 24) “Do not be deceived” So many lies we have been told. But luckily, I believe there is ONE book we can believe – the Bible itself.

        ‘God’ is the ‘Sun’…….’Son of God’ = Sun of God. We are all children of the Sun.

        • LLL

          Funny how some folks are attracted to the very thing they despise. You deride the pope for his deification of the earth then turn around and allow a comment like this one while blocking my earlier comment which pointed to the truth. We are not all children of the Sun, the Sun earth and all the stars were created by God, not the Sun. Neither are we all children of God….some are of the father of lies. As Paul said, For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

          I will continue to pray to the one true God on your behalf.

          • subsistent

            ‘Suns of God’, most likely. Suns are the ‘sons’ of the God, which you nor anyone else knows what it is, where it and why it is. And yes, we are all children of ‘our Sun’ because without it you would not be alive. Do you think you can live without the Sun? You are still reading out of a book which has been changed/manipulated over the years, when I am looking at 100% proof, fact of what is true. Clearly you missed that. ‘Truth’ is what you experience in real life, on your own. You didn’t know Paul and you didn’t know he existed. All you know is he is some guy that apparently lived, according to a book. You bible thumpers need to wake up and stop reading and taking that crap literally, and experiencing life and truth with your own senses.
