Netflix has added to the pile of insane new shows once more with a series about Cleopatra as a black woman. The Egyptian government got angry and has stated that she was light skinned. Historical falsification is once more a hot topic.
Pope John Paul II knew about abuse by priests but failed to act against it as archbishop and cardinal before he became Pope, or so certain headlines say.
This claim was made by Dutch journalist Ekke Overbeek last year in preparation for her book Mea Culpa that’s due to be released this week (Mea Culpa was already the title off a documentary about abuse in the Catholic Church, these titles that are puns referencing Latin words in Catholic rituals mocked by mainstream Protestants reek of old-fashioned anti-Catholicism that seeks to weaponise child abuse by caring about and focusing on it selectively). Michal Gutowski, the investigator behind the report for anti-PiS (ruling Right-wing party in Poland) private broadcaster TVN has now repeated the claims and added to them.
After Pell’s exoneration, he was made a cardinal and his star seemed to be shining. He would end up partaking in 2 conclaves. A decade later he was even appointed to Pope Francis’ council of cardinal advisers and put in charge of economic reforms.
The wonderful great Benedict turns out to have left his money and the rights to his popular works to his trusted secretary who stood by him up to and even after his death.
Francis has now claimed that criticisms made against him by Benedict’s inner circle are actually opportunistic, that they take advantage of the late pontiff. Yet, his accusations seem to show that he himself is doing just that.
Cardinal Pell received a Catholic funeral attended by 30 bishops, hundreds of priests, the opposition leader and a former prime minister. But he was denied a state funeral by the Labour authorities even though that’s the norm for important public figures. Apparently it would be too destressing for victims according to premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews. Even though Pell has been cleared of false accusations off abuse and of claims that his Melbourne response did not report abusers when it in fact did. It seems especially hypocritical since Andrews has so far still not made an apology to victims of abuse in Victoria’s state schools despite a motion requestion that. And now hundreds of cases have come forward regarding historic abuse in these schools and it is said to be only the tip of the ice-berg. Yet the Royal Commission singled out the Catholic Church while brushing over this secular school abuse.[
Cardinal Pell, the Australian Dreyfuss’ funeral is being held today or tomorrow depending on your time zone. Pell died unexpectedly at 81, a couple of hours after having seemingly recovered from a minor hip operation. An inside source alleged possible foul play (murder). Though Pell didn’t die before completely and utterly destroying Francis’ synod on …
As stories are popping at that Lula’s minister of justice knew about the coming attack and did nothing, and that this possible false flag is being used to justify putting more than 1500 protesters in concentration camps and to fire and even arrest heads of the military police and even judges in Brazil, I thought it would be fun to reflect on the 2019 riots in Chile. (Oh and police-man are being burned alive in Peru as violent protests continue cause the Marxist ex-president was impeached for attempting an anti-constitutional self-coup).
Benedict’s funeral was just two days ago. Now in a week a book by his secretary Gänswein will be published which reveals criticisms of Benedict on stances and ambiguities off Francis as well as Francis rather mean-spirited or cold conduct towards Benedict and Gänswein. This just after it had already been revealed that Benedict had supported Traditionalist communities after Francis’ crackdown on the Tridentine Mass. With Benedict buried the truth is being dug up.
The outpouring of support and devotion to Pope Benedict XVI, Vicarius Christi of the Catholic Church (April 19 2005- 31 December 2022), has been massive. The Vatican has been surprised and overwhelmed by the large number of faithful coming to see the deceased pope.
