It all begins with silence and quickly becomes compliance. These are the seeds of evil.
If you're a Catholic who has consistently and vehemently held your ancient church and its leadership to the fires of morality and virtue, you are truly extraordinary! Thank you, but this article isn't meant for you. This punchy pile of prose is aimed at your spineless Catholic brothers and sisters, the ones who sheepishly hid in their pews, lost sense of their humanity, and protected pedophiles with their misplaced reverence and silence.

When you examine the Catholic hierarchy and its sheep-like followers, you see dim reflections of Nazi Germany, a country that funded and supported the killing of over 6 million people. With the luscious lingo found in their outdated religious texts (rewritten and retranslated hundreds of times), Catholics (and most Christians) pray, eat paper bread, and pretend to give a flying-toot about love, humanity, and justice. Mostly, Catholics strive to feel good about themselves and their church. They believe that their religion and bible comprise the sole, undeniable truth.
Funded by the sale of billions of dollars in Vatican real estate, and fueled by denial, and the inability to critique their own ideologies, Catholics enabled thousands of priests to rape tens of thousands of children, some as young as 3. While this has been going on for centuries, it's the past 75+ years that have been the focus.
"Becoming awake involves seeing our confusion more clearly."
How did Catholic church-goers consciously support and then continue to fund all of these rapes? Denial, compliance and weekly attendance. No matter how many rapes or how convincing the evidence, Catholics continued to love and support their church through tithing, bake sales, and by paying exorbitant tuition's at high-priced Catholic institutions.
With their stunning silence and warped sense of the Divine, Catholic parishioners stifled what could have been a revolution to overcome how religions use greed, dishonesty, and secrecy to abuse and control the masses. Instead, they continue to behave like the unconscious members of any cult or political party.
Similarly, the Nazis were funded by their county's patriots, and eventually by the countries and banks they commandeered, all of which enabled their regime to round-up millions of Jews, Gypsies and "sexual deviants," in order to systematically kill them. At the time of these killings, over one-third of Germany was Catholic, and almost all of Germany was Christian. Let that sink-in a minute.
Catholicism and Christianity are distant cousins at best, and neither solely promotes the teachings of Jesus. Both were contrived and then evolved as composites of political movements, social networks, and financial organizations.
Neither Catholicism nor Christianity are based solely on enduring spiritual principles, like love or compassion. And while it's more complex than that, these old religions have lost their abilities to scrutinize their outdated ideologies and practices, including those perpetuated by the many criminals and dark thinkers within their ranks.
Mostly, these religions are aimed at amassing followers, and then enrolling, misguiding, and controlling them. To align with either of them is to deny the profound, loving, and eternal nature of our divine universe. Why relegate yourself to a something so limited?
If you're still a Catholic or Christian, consider the depth of the hypocrisy and misinformation within your religion's books and halls, rethink your blind allegiance, and grow.

Pedophile Priests And Their Victims
When a child is raped, it's very different from a woman or man being raped. Men and women often have a collection of psychological constructs and healthy paradigms that can save them from at least a measure of anger, hatred, confusion, feelings of abandonment, suicide, personality disorders, and similar problematic conditions and circumstances. They can reach out, verbalize their traumas, and learn how to receive love and guidance. Not in all cases, but adults who have been raped stand a much better chance at healing, when compared to children who have been raped.
Children do not have strong foundations, fully-developed personalities, or innate psychological fortresses to save them from anguish and self-hatred that often results from being abused, manipulated, or raped. All they have are suggestions, most of which, they cannot fully fathom, integrate, or comprehend. Children are sponges and most cannot fully recover from rape. They can only learn to put it within a healthier framework, which most often happens more than 30 years following their traumatizing experiences.
When Jewish families were executed, all of their future generations were stained, pained and burdened. Akin to slavery, you cannot pray-away that kind of trauma. When children are raped, they silently internalize it, which forms several unique constructs within their personalities and self-identities. These identity-constructs eventually emerge in the DNA of every one of their relationships and offspring, which can grow within their ancestries for generations.
A little rape of a little person is not a little thing.
Everyone who has been raped carries a dark, open, porous wound, and childhood rapes burrow much deeper. Everything they do and become will be tainted by their rapes. Yes, a raped child can emerge as a conscious, kind, aware and liberated adult, but that journey is incredibly painful, and can drive the individual to the brink of insanity.
While being faithful and devotional are lovely attributes, blind faith tends to disregard truth, alienate victims and those less fortunate, and enable forms of abuse. Hasn't Catholicism progressed far beyond its tipping point?
Catholics and their Christian counterparts, like all people who allow themselves to be brainwashed, have tended to be defensive and cowardly when it comes to this topic. The vast majority of them remained silent for more than 30 years after the truth about the raping clergy emerged. They are still complacent. They are still silent.
Compared to the Nazi German citizens who were mostly horrified after the Allies publicized the horrors of concentration camps, Catholics have been protective of their church, rather than protectors of children, and warriors of justice. They might say the right things, but they still support and love a church that has had abuse and secrecy embedded in its foundation for centuries. It will never truly change.
Even though many Catholics are aware of the Vatican's dark strategy, they are still devout to their Pope. While he appears to be cuddly, warm and fuzzy, he's similar to any political leader during times of darkness. For too many years he defended the church's priesthood and let children suffer in the dark. Even though billions have been paid out to the families of rape victims, there are still thousands of rape cases pending in the offices of the Vatican. And the abuse continues.
The Catholic Church has never been a perfect haven or congruent organization. If you add up all of the church's murders throughout the centuries, it could easily rival the murders during the Holocaust.
The Dark Strategy Of The Catholic Church
Did you know that the Vatican has an official strategy to deal with the rapes? Here are a few excerpts from this hateful strategy, born from the minds of Catholics, and uncontested by the church's faithful followers.
It's worked well for them, but HOLY MOLY!
When discussing allegations against a priest, NEVER use the word rape, use "hurtful actions," or "boundary issues."
Upon becoming aware of an "infraction," NEVER contact the police, under any circumstances.
NEVER hire third-party investigators, rather, assign the investigations to internal members of the clergy. In other words, pay other priests (who may also be rapists) to research the crimes of their rapist-peers.
Use the rapist-priest's parish to fund all research, investigations, and legal operations.
NEVER admit to a parish, a region, or the press that one of their priests committed a "boundary issue," rather, tell everybody, including his parishioners, that the sad priest is on sabbatical or sick-leave. Consider using the word, "cancer".
Before the transgressions become public, immediately transfer the rapist-priest to an unknowing parish, without every mentioning his dark past. If the rapist-priest rapes a child at the new parish, continue transferring him to other parishes, maintaining the secrets related to his rapes, until he dies.
Eternally fund and subsidize every rapist-priest with his parish's donations. In other words, a parish's community pays for every one of their rapist-priest's food, housing, cars, entertainment, and scam, collared costumes.
When confronted by evidence, NEVER claim that the priest committed a sin or crime. Rather, confirm that the priest is "in need of love, compassion, guidance and forgiveness."
When first-news breaks about a priest raping a child, don't respond or react. Keep silent until a legal authority approaches. Then, follow the instructions above.
Solid Advice From The Pope's PR Team
If you're the Pope, write a letter, but don't take action or promise any changes. Don't punish anybody, even the rapist-priests. When the dust settles, hire photographers to take pictures of you holding hands with cute, old women. Pray-away your compliance.
If you're Catholic, pray for the church, and for the "boundary-aggressed" children. Don't become angry, picket, or say "rape." Just be good sheep and tithe, thereby funding the rapes. On Ash Wednesday, wear your ashes all day so people know you're Catholic.
As a Catholic, don't think outside the little box you believe to be the truth. Stay emotionally and spiritually regressed. Remain dependent on the illusion that being Catholic or Christian saves you from anything. This will make you better taxpayers.
If you're a priest and rape anybody, keep it secret. And eat your vegetables.
After so many rapes within their church, truly conscious Catholics would have stampeded the doors and demanded justice for the children, and jail for the rapists. They might also have forced the abolition of the priesthood.
The Cloth was not founded on eternal, spiritual principles. If it was, celibacy and professed heterosexuality would not be mandatory, or even encouraged. If Catholic celibacy were grounded in a durable, truthful set of teachings, the same percentages of molestations would occur at Buddhist and Hindu temples, which is not the case. While Buddhism and Hinduism have other similar and equally problematic issues, pedophilia is not at the top of those lists.
The priesthood is founded on hierarchical spirituality, dishonesty, ignorance, oppression, the avoidance of transparency and authenticity, prehistoric fears and insecurities, and harmful, outdated, medieval ideologies.
Like within all religions, the devout eventually entrench themselves in obsolete and fabricated stories and will stop at nothing to perpetuate and defend them. This is the process within the minds and hearts of all religious adherents that eventually leads to ignorance, brainwashing, misleading enrollment tactics, harm to others, and the death of the open spirit.
My Advice For Free-Thinking Catholics
Leave the church and encourage its bankruptcy
Seek your evolution and liberation by connecting directly with the divine
Fight for justice and defend virtue in all things
Imagine a tableau of thousands of Jews in a concentration camp. The pain you imagine in that image is how raped children feel. Remember this, always.
Ask yourself, "why have I been silent so silent?"
With billions of dollars in reparations, in over 30 countries, involving over 10,000 priests, and over 100,000 children, what internalized, misconstrued idea or belief has made you so devotional to this scam?
Why are you so compliant?
Where have you denied the real God and His truth?
Can you look beyond the stories of your religion?
Let's face it. Jesus was neither Catholic or Christian. And there is no basis that he wanted to form any organization whatsoever. Jesus was an Enlightened Master, among many, who would never have permitted the forming of a global real estate entity in his name.
Jesus would have never asked you to defend his church's sins. He would never have built churches in order to hide behind them. He would have put beds and homeless people in each of them, and then built kitchens to feed the world.
God loves and embraces everybody without prejudice. He would have fought to save children and imprison rapist-priests - without hesitation. He would never have defended bureaucrats in pretty robes, living in towers. He would have defended the bare, naked truth.
Jesus wants you to seek liberation and live the truth.
When Jesus turned over the money-tables in the temple, he was full of rage. That's what love does sometimes. It fights with all its might. It gets ugly. It stands-up to Nazis, rapists, oppressors, and other criminals. It puts prayer on hold, and replaces it with decisive, congruent, aggressive action.
Love isn't always a rose.
Sometimes it's a fucking train wreck.
Sheep don't think. Eternally placated, they will happily lead themselves into their own prisons and death. With their silence, sheep enable evil, which can grow and fester in the hearts of even the most conscious, loving human beings.
While its original intentions may have been noble, Catholicism has become a sad, global conglomerate, filled with unconscious, sheep, each of whom funded the rapes of children and the protection of rapist-priests.
As a silent Catholic, you are complicit in every rape since your confirmation. If you are not standing up for the children and the imprisonment of every rapist-priest, you are living beneath your abilities and outside of your professed ideology. Every time you visit your church and tithe, you renew your compliance and confirm your allegiance.
Whatever your religion is, it's a drug.
Your nationalism is a drug.
Your ego loves these things.
Dig beyond these temporary constructs. Dig deeper to find the truth. And then dig deeper into the limited and outdated paradigms that you've absorbed throughout your life. Move beyond them all.
Stop enabling and supporting all of the internal and external systems that are based in unconsciousness, greed, hatred, abuse, outdated holy books, and secrecy.
As a Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian or Born-Againer, you're not just an American or Christian, you're a human being with responsibilities. That's what's most important. Buck-up, show-up, and come alive! Stop hiding behind exclusive, limited ideologies. Open-up and initiate your own awakening, and support the awakening of others.
Jesus's quote about truth is spot-on:
"The Truth Shall Set You Free."
Silent Catholics still have the chance to set hypocrisy on fire and change the world. It is always our choice to remain asleep or to wake up.
Pope Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) continued the tradition of silent and avoidance around the rapes but eventually issued an apology letter. This had no teeth. The thousands of cases against the church continue.
