Sex, Lies, Priests, Popes & Coaches

Published on July 17, 2012


A U.S. jury convicted former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky on 45 of 48 counts in a child sex abuse case that shocked the nation and rocked the university. And U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “Today it is estimated as many as 27 million people around the world are victims of modern slavery, what we sometimes call trafficking in persons. The end of legal slavery in the United States and in other countries around the world has not, unfortunately, meant the end of slavery.”

“Those victims of modern slavery are women and men, girls and boys, and their stories remind us of the kind of inhumane treatment we are capable of as human beings,” said Clinton. The UN crime-fighting office announced that 2.4 million people across the globe are victims of human trafficking at any one time, and 80% of them are being exploited as sexual slaves. Two out of every three victims are women and only one out of 100 victims of trafficking is ever rescued.

Meanwhile the Vatican’s doctrinal office denounced an American nun, who taught Christian ethics at Yale Divinity School, for a book that attempted to present a theological rationale for same-sex relationships, masturbation and remarriage after divorce. The book, she said, offers “contemporary interpretations” of justice and fairness in human sexual relations, moving away from a “taboo morality” and drawing on “present-day scientific, philosophical, theological, and biblical resources.”

The formal censure came only weeks after the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued a stinging reprimand of the main coordinating group of American nuns, prompting many Catholics across the country to turn out in defense of the nuns with protests, petitions and vigils.

The statement took Sister Farley to task for writing that same-sex marriage “can also be important in transforming the hatred, rejection, and stigmatization of gays and lesbians.” She wrote that “same-sex relationships and activities can be justified according to the same sexual ethic as heterosexual relationships and activities.” “This opinion is not acceptable,” the Vatican statement said.

Sister Farley writes that female masturbation “usually does not raise any moral questions at all.” She adds that “many women” have found “great good in self-pleasuring—perhaps especially in the discovery of their own possibilities for pleasure—something many had not experienced or even known about in their ordinary sexual relations with husbands or lovers.” The Vatican said this assessment contradicted church teaching that “the deliberate use of the sexual faculty, for whatever reason, outside of marriage is essentially contrary to its purpose.”

And if you really are a strict Catholic it means sex for procreation only! And one has to try not to enjoy it too much while you are doing it! Unfortunately the story of religion is in part the story of men and their abuse of women and children. That tradition continues to this day and we see this in child sexual abuse, rape, child adult weddings, the genital mutilation of young girls, and the denial that goes on at the highest levels that sexuality is a serious problem for human beings. And as we see at the close of this essay, even circumcision is a form of sexual violence.

Sexual abuse is much worse than you can possibly imagine and who do you think buys many of these sexual slaves? We are a demented race and even the priests of the Catholic Church get away with abusing the young as a matter of course—such is the legacy of celibacy and other Catholic doctrines.

Pope Benedict XVI says the Catholic Church must reflect on what is wrong with its message and with Christian life in general that allowed for the widespread sexual abuse of children by priests. Benedict said the church must better train priests so that such abuses never occur again and must figure out how to help victims heal. He says this but we all know they’re not likely to do anything effective about any of this. Perhaps a slap on the hand to these priests and then they will just move on, which of course does not do anything to correct this long standing problem.

Pope Benedict XVI begged forgiveness from abuse victims for the sins of priests and promised to “do everything possible” to ensure that Roman Catholic clerics don’t rape or molest children ever again.

There are just certain kinds of things we cannot talk about, things about our inner worlds, because doing so steps on religious shoes. Much of human insanity comes from our misguided concepts, many of them traceable to ancient books. But it does not matter. What we really need to understand, as Clinton is hinting at, is to understand the nature of human vulnerability and how easily one person can cause great suffering in another. Rape and child sexual abuse, which do violence not only to a person’s sexuality but also to their entire being, demonstrates the hurt humans are capable of dishing out to others without remorse.

Rape envelops the victim’s entire world; it turns their world into a living hell. There are no words strong enough to describe the way rape victims feel. They are locked in a nightmare that has little relevance to the outside world. Having had their bodies violated and their minds tortured, it is almost impossible to communicate feelings to others who have no real perception of the depth of physical and psychological abuse they have suffered.

From puberty and before, sexuality is a force that either shapes or dents our life, bringing us to cliffs of shame and guilt or to a heaven of ecstasy and love. Many children have been deeply scarred and carry penetrating wounds that keeps them from being able to experience deep and meaningful love in their adulthood.

People who have been severely abused and hurt describe the abuse as a defining feature of their lives. Between long pauses and deep breaths one woman struggled to describe the depression that began in adolescence when her father started molesting her. “He used to say, ‘You’re a worthless piece of garbage; you’ll never amount to anything’,” she said. While children are resilient, the phrase “sexual abuse” does not fully convey the mix of fear and betrayal an abused child may feel, especially because the abuser is typically someone he or she knows and trusts—a cousin, an uncle, stepfather, or even her own father or a trusted friend.

“There’s nothing I can think of that so betrays the experience of safety and care and relationship,” said Peter Fraenkel, a clinical psychologist who teaches at City College in New York. He often hears how a child’s abuser is the very person who is supposed to protect the child. Oftentimes a mother does not believe their child so she does not protect her child from a father or stepfather—this abandonment and betrayal does deep and terrible ruin.

Child abuse is a fact—a hideous, foul fact that traumatizes our culture just as it traumatizes individual victims. We are incredibly vulnerable with our sexualities because they involve every level of our being. And yet that is not appreciated because vulnerability is not understood or cherished in modern society. Attacking a person through their sexuality gives a person access to the unspeakable. It gives them access to the absolute center of a person’s vulnerability.

Sex is beautiful as God is beautiful and to think otherwise diminishes God.

The reason sex drives itself so deeply into our soul nature is: first, we were created with and by it, and second, we were given it not only as the base of our creative energy but as a natural path to love and union. So when a person’s sexual vulnerability gets abused, the deepest part of their nature is hurt, often it seems, beyond repair. Sexual violence turns the basic universal energy back in and on itself in a way that twists the soul, our very essence, and this closes down the heart, the vibration of vulnerability and being.


Circumcising young boys on religious grounds leads to grievous bodily harm, a German court ruled in a landmark decision that the Jewish community said trampled on parents’ religious rights. The regional court in Cologne, western Germany, ruled that the “fundamental right of the child to bodily integrity outweighed the fundamental rights of the parents.”

The case was brought against a doctor in Cologne who had circumcised a four-year-old Muslim boy on his parents’ wishes. A few days after the operation, his parents took him to hospital as he was bleeding heavily. Prosecutors then charged the doctor with grievous bodily harm.

“The body of the child is irreparably and permanently changed by a circumcision,” the court said. “This change contravenes the interests of the child to decide later on his religious beliefs.”

The head of the Central Committee of Jews, Dieter Graumann, said the ruling was “an unprecedented and dramatic intervention in the right of religious communities to self-determination. Circumcision of newborn boys is a fixed part of the Jewish religion and has been practiced worldwide for centuries. This religious right is respected in every country in the world.”

Descrição: Circumcision

Graumann is absolutely correct. This form of sexual violence is part of ancient Jewish laws on sexuality, which are exceptionally violent and cruel. Graumann obviously would have this perpetuated on the human race for eternity. Jewish and thus Christian ideas on sexuality are based on a sickness of mind and heart that has caused immeasurable suffering for thousands of years.

Pinchas Goldschmidt, Swiss-born chief rabbi of Moscow, said, “Circumcision represents the basis for belonging to the Jewish community. It has been practiced for 4,000 years and cannot be changed.” This is the main problem with the world’s religions—nothing can be changed and this is absurd in a universe where everything is changing and evolving. It is an affront against God since God created a constantly changing universe.

Rabbi Natan Sega writes, “The patriarch Abraham was 99 years old when he made the covenant (hebrew: Brit’) with Yahweh. He circumcised himself. And we know that it was a small symbolic cut, the removal of the tip of the foreskin that hung over the glans. In the second century, the Jews at this time wanted to participate in the Greek and Roman Olympics but they competed in the nude. The Greeks and Romans only allowed ‘intact’ males as they celebrated the human form in its wholeness and completeness. So, if a Jewish man wanted to compete he would hang some weights from his existing foreskin and ‘restore’ himself. The Rabbis of this era did not take kindly to this practice of physical assimilation so they instituted two new rituals into the circumcision procedure. 1) Periah, which is the complete removal of the foreskin, exposing the glans, and in some cases, the removal of the frenulum (the extra-sensitive band of tissue on the underside of the penis), and 2) Metzitzah, the sucking of the blood from the cut penis. These two procedures are still performed among Orthodox Jews worldwide. So, from a simple snip at the time of Abraham, we now have a major blood-letting ceremony, complete with blood sucking. This has got to stop.

Prior to Moses, Egyptians worshipped the masculine phallus and were contemptuous of the feminine equivalent. They practiced—and still do—upon children, the most terrible repression of infantile sexuality that can be imagined. Circumcision predates the Jews, coming as it does from the ancient Egyptians. Moses is said to actually have detested the practice and that original authentic Judaism was born in reaction to circumcision.

If one buys into this view (revision of Genesis 17 counts the setting of circumcision back into practice by the Egyptians upon children. Abraham was forced to obey but a strong resistance developed within the people because the circumcision of babies in doubtful hygiene conditions provoked numerous deaths) then it seems that modern Jews and Moslems don’t really know what they are talking about or what they are defending in this barbarous practice.

Medicine & Circumcision

Holm Putzke, a criminal law expert at the University of Passau, told the Financial Times Deutschland that the ruling was “enormously important for doctors because for the first time they have legal certainty.” The court specified that circumcision was not illegal if carried out for medical reasons.

Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn weighed in heavily on this subject saying, “The bris is performed on the eighth day of life by a trained mohel who uses the same technique that has withstood more than 4,000 years of use. Ten men stand by to make sure he does it right, too. Modern medicine’s routine circumcision, however, takes place on the first or second day of life, when blood loss can be especially dangerous. It’s performed by a surgeon, or an intern, or a medical student using the “latest” technique. Where the bris ceremony includes pouring some wine in the infant’s mouth, no anesthetic at all is used in modern medicine’s ritual.”

Descrição: Bible image

Modern medicine has copied and mirrors the violence of religion, loving, as they all do, the abuse of highly vulnerable and innocent children. The ugliness of feminine clitoral mutilation is found in male circumcision but humans will have their way until the end of time, which is assured as a just reward for our brutality against children. The ancient prophets were not blind and saw way ahead of time where humanity was heading.

    Austria is following Germany’s example on circumcision of small boys. On July 24, “. . . a state governor advised doctors against performing the procedure, even when it is on religious grounds.”

    I welcome this news. When will other countries see the light? When will we see a worldwide moratorium on circumcision of babies of either sex?

  • Hello Everyone,

    I usually do not see the responses to my newsletters but Claudia French who does monitor our sites sent me here to read up. Of course I see and recognize that even in the bible there is justification for great enjoyment of sex but somehow that gets twisted. For sure anykind of sexual mutilation is violent but people with violent minds do not see it that way and there is nothing we can do about that.

    And yes I am a devout follower of Mary, know of Jesus and God but could easily vomit for all that the Catholic Church has done in their names. For many years, after being in complete union with Jesus, I thought he had left the galaxy himself in disgust for what people do and think in his name so was surprised about two months ago when I heard him whisper to me a simple message.

    His message did not shake me but his return did. The message was simple–the end of times period has now begun. Don’t really need cosmic messages to divine that one out. But then a week later, I was touched by a ray of light, meaning from God himself…..and that was incredibly calming….and melted any conflict I had with identity and image. The message to me about that was…relax it does not matter….It has been almost 17 years since I have had my own conversations with God and almost as long since I gave up all identification with Christ…and that was after I wrote much of my Marriage of Souls book in the name of Christ. Can you guess what the subtitle was? The Second Coming of Pure Love!!!!!!!!!

    Abusing children is a legacy of celibacy? That’s a very twisted concept, Dr. Mark. And implying that Pope Benedict will do nothing more than slap the hands of priests who abuse children is totally untrue also.

    You praise Hilary Clinton as a champion of children and all who are tortured by human trafficking, yet she is a strong advocate of abortion, the ultimate child abuse in our world.

    Dr. Mark, if you truly love Our Blessed Mother Mary, pray for her priests. The ones who are good shepherds in the Catholic Church far outnumber those who succumb to the sin of abusing little children.

    I believe gay marriages should be allowed so that gay couples can fully express their love and devotion and also their appreciation of this blessing from God.

    Circumcision of babies is really barbaric some even fail to have their frenulum develop as a result. Some boys even have difficulty masturbating and maybe seduced to rape instead or become abusive sexual partners or partake in deviant sexual practices or simple injure themselves or their wife. I don’t really know the consequences of circumcision for baby girls or children but I’m sure it can be much worst.

    Birth control should be allowed to allow families to have a successful and productive members of society. Natural resources have a limit like a house sizes have a natural limit. If a house is too big its far too costly to maintain, if its too small it severely limits the quality of life of the family.

    Slavery is surely a bad thing but few see torture as a form of slavery too.

    I view my circumcision as mutilation and find it appalling that no anesthesia is given to this day. I’ve seriously thought about bringing charges against the doctor who circumcised me when I learned that circumcision was based solely on religion and not as a matter of hygiene as many of us are deceived into believing. I CHOSE my tattoo Tim so your comparison seems pretty weak. I do always find the religious babble amusing and interesting though. Thanks for the great article Mark!

  • OliveOyl

    If we are to believe pediatricians who claim that the procedure is done for “hygiene”, there is a major mistake in the design of the male human body. Does anyone really believe this?

    Unbelievable that, for decades, pediatricians insisted that newborn baby boys could not feel their foreskins being sliced and torn from their most sensitive organ. I have always wondered how doctors reconciled this view with the pitiful screaming of their victims.

    Unbelievable that, even now, pediatricians insist it doesn’t traumatize the infants and that the babies immediately forget the experience. Many mothers have said the opposite, that their baby boys were never the same after circumcision and that they had lost their ability to trust. After all, it is sheer agony for them and is not over quickly. The procedure is estimated to take between 5 and 40 minutes to perform — can you imagine a newborn infant being put through 40 minutes of unremitting agony, usually without anesthesia, strapped into a pappoose board unable to escape his torturer? Why, the child could die of a heart attack. Some babies do die after the procedure; readers may google circumcision mortality if they don’t believe this.

    One mother gave testimony online. She had asked to watch the procedure being performed on her son. She turned to the doctor afterward and said that, if she had a gun, she would have killed him.

    My conclusion is that many parents submit their sons for this procedure because they have no idea how painful and frightening it is. THEY HAVE BEEN LIED TO.

    Have we learned from our past mistakes? Are we ready to declare infant circumcision to be felonious mutilation and child abuse?

    OR — does the right of a pediatrician to perform a lucrative procedure take precedence over the baby’s right to an intact body and freedom from totally unnecessary pain?

    Dr. Mark, on behalf of babies who cannot speak, THANK YOU for writing this article.

    Dr Mark,

    Mankind has never stopped trying to re-invent the wheel. They cannot accept that the God-invented human body cannot be improved on, without being God oneself. Thus we are given genetically engineered babies….30 of them reported so far. Certain tribes have invented circumcision and genital mutilation to set themselves as apart from the rest. Modern youth uses dress, tattoos and piercings to do the same thing.

    Is the human body all that there is about being human? Is there not a soul which gives life to the body, and which deserves our efforts towards salvation of some kind? Is the traditional answer of salvation from original sin, the truth? Lots of questions exist, for the thinkers. One thing is sure: all the paradigms so far have failed as the world grows more and more evil.

    Frankly, the truth still evades us. How much can we rely on a religion devised by the Romans and popularised by the Vatican? This same Vatican has exhibited very demonic behavior over the centuries. The sexual abuse perpetrated by priests is widely known now because of the revolution in communications, but it always existed. The Australian online Magazine called NEXUS carried in depth articles on the abuses of the Papacy. The latest fiasco is that the Vatican Bank is engaged is in laundering money for the mafioso.

    A new paradigm is necessary. Religion has failed to enlighten or deliver the promised salvation. All the prayers, worship and rituals have not transformed the society or the world. Nobody prays as much as those in the Muslim countries, yet they are experiencing the worst human dramas possible. We have been misled.

    Religion was indeed the ‘opiate of the masses’. Now, the Elites are getting rid of it because (religion has served their plans well) their plans have succeeded: the devil rules! For the small minority on Earth who do not worship money, morality and intuition are the daily guides. This article reveals moral indignation with the status quo way of things. If people pursued health as taught by Dr Mark, half the job of spirituality would be accomplished. The other half of the job begins by shedding one’s programming which is made up of the frequently catapulted propaganda created by Elite think-tanks. But, that is only a beginning!

    Clearly, the covenant of circumcision was not designed to violently inflict pain or humiliation, rather to render holy, ie set-apart, a particular group of people; therefore it was not a violent act as such, any more than tattooing or piercing can be seen as violent acts. Neither should circumcision be linked with sexual violence, as is being touted here. The covenant could, one assumes, have been as easily defined in terms of the requirement for a male to tattoo his face, perhaps, rather as the Maoris do. However, that particular suggestion is ruled out, as the Chosen People are specifically forbidden from cutting their bodies in response to death, or marking them with ink.
    However, as a Christian, one knows that the special relationship between YHVH and the Chosen People came to an end with the birth of Jesus Christ. Paul states that there is no longer Jew or Gentile, circumcision or uncircumcision, male or female, all are one in Christ, all are part of the ecclesia, the called-out body of believers. The circumcision required today is that of the heart, as Steven stated, just prior to being stoned to death. ( Acts 7 )
    Therefore the Jewish practice of circumcision, to a Christian, is atavistic, as also would be any attempt to build a new Temple, or to reinstitute animal sacrifice there. Christ laid down His life as the final and perfect sacrifice; He was the Lamb of God; sacrifice therefore is finished. The Lord’s last words confirm this fact, ie “It is finished”. God does not require or expect further animal sacrifice.
    However, try telling that to a Talmudic Jew. They have no concept of Christ as the Messiah. Their religion is no longer based upon the Torah or Tanakh, but it is now the Babylonish religion of the rabbis and the Talmud; these people are the modern-day Pharisees so absolutely condemned by the Lord Jesus Christ; who consider themselves superior to, and wiser than, the God who brought them out of Egypt. Their rulings take precedence over anything YHVH said to them all those years ago, to the extent that the Talmud teaches that sexual relations with a baby girl is acceptable, as long as the girl is older than 3. ( Sanhedrin 55b )
    Boys are no less abused by this system; sexual relations between a man and a child, as long as he is younger than 9, are considered to be “nothing”.
    They will not countenance interference in their diabolical affairs by Christ. He is described as eternally boiling in a cauldron of semen and excrement, and the New Testament is described by them as “blank paper”.
    Dr Sircus considers that Jewish and Christian ideas on sexuality are based on a sickness of mind. He also manages to entertain the simultaneous notion that we were given sexuality as a natural path to love and union. He clearly has not fully digested and absorbed his ideas; both parts of his belief system stem from the actions and words of the same God, YHVH. He might wish to look at the Song of Solomon for an insight into how God views the kind of relationships which he instituted in the Garden of Eden between Ish and Isha. His thoughts were, “It is not good for man to dwell alone”.
    Anyway, enough already.

      Seroiusly, carving up a child’s genitals without anesthesia is not violent? Sorry, you’re simply out of your mind. Circumcision is literally violent disfiguring child rape.

      How can carving up a person’s private (sexual) parts, with a knife, while the victim experiences traumatic pain NOT be sexual violence.

      Grow a brain Tim. Circumcision is RAPE, of the most violent kind. Only an evil, psychopathic god would command that a full half of his people be subject to ritual sexual torture an mutilation. Thank goodness that evil being does not exist.

    • Brad

      There’s nothing holy about raping children, you sicko.
