Joseph Radzinger, now Pope Benenedict XVI, has given his old job as enforcer and head ofÃ‚ dogma for the Roman Catholic church (formerly known as the 'Pontifical Office For The Inquisition') to an American Arch Bishop who protected the identity of child molesting Roman Catholic clergy.Ã‚ When Radzinger held the post before becoming pope he reissued the 'Solicitaccionnes Criminale'Ã‚ directive instructing Bishops toÃ‚ effectively obstruct justice in the protection of the identity of such pedophiles at the expense of the child victims.
In a world free from the political corruption of justice one must wonder why RadzingerÃ‚ is not being criminally prosecuted for accessory to obstruct justice. NowÃ‚ as pope he has given the jobÃ‚ Ã‚ to a colleague who complied with the papal directive.
ROME, May 13 - Pope Benedict XVI named an American archbishop the guardian of church doctrine on Friday, and said he would speed up the process to make his popular predecessor, John Paul II, a saint.

As doctrinal Czar for the Roman Church, Cardinal Joseph Radzinger occupied the position that had once been called "The Inquisitor General". His Vatican department for sacred doctrine had in former times been known as "The Inquisition".
When German theologian Hans Kung challenged the pre-incarnate deity of Christ, Radzinger did nothing. When Kung questioned papal infallibility (held as official dogma since 1854 as proclaimed by Pius IX who issued the "Qanta Curia" encyclical denouncing democracy and who supported the pro-slavery of the American confederacy), Radzinger promptly stripped him of his credentials as a Roman Catholic theologian. Radzinger's theology was clear: say what you want , no matter how heretical or apostate, about Jesus Christ, but do not question the pope or the papacy.

Year after year he was the most loved and admired man in the world. The idolatrous veneration and adoration of this man was unprecedented. His devotees, who are now singing his praises, are probably ignorant of the strong rebuke of Jesus who said, "Woe to you when all men speak well of you" (Luke 6:26). Had the pope been devoted to Jesus Christ and His Gospel of grace, he would have been hated and persecuted by the world. No one can judge John Paul"s heart but we are all called to judge the fruit of our spiritual leaders. Clearly this man was blinded by the prince of this world and never saw the light of the gospel or the glory of Christ. I mourn the death of this man, not for the reason the world mourns, but because he rejected Jesus as God's only provision for his sins. I also have a solemn compassion for those who blindly followed this pope and his man-centered religion. My heart is painfully burdened to see so many "professing" Christians unable to discern truth from error and genuine Christianity from its counterfeit. If ever there was a more important time for faithful servants of our Lord Jesus Christ to take a stand for the truth, it is now. The religious corruption of Rome has been on constant display for the whole world to see. The splendor and pageantry has been extraordinary. Thousands of hopelessly deceived people stood in long lines for as long as 12 hours to venerate a dead man with a rosary in his hands and a twisted crucifix by his side. Bishops and Cardinals encouraged Catholics to pray to and for this dead pope whose body was constantly being "blessed" with incense and "holy" water. They must not be aware that praying to anyone other than God is an abomination to God (Deut. 18:11).

Vatican City -- As Pope John Paul II looked back at 2004, important ecumenical events seemed not to satisfy him but to sharpen his desire to lead the way to unity among Christians.
The world's people yearn for unity and Christians have an obligation to ensure that their reconciliation and common commitment to the Gospel will show others the path, Pope John Paul told members of the Roman Curia Dec. 21 during the traditional exchange of Christmas greetings.
The Knights of Malta are a Roman Catholic organization with quasi mystical practices used mainly to advance Vatican influences in the political sphere. It is more exclusive than the Roman Catholic 'Knights of Columbus' and is rooted somewhat in the ethos of the barbaric Knights Templar of the Crusader Period (so too are St. John's Ambulance service, but they are more secular and benign).
Unlike the OPUS DEI cult founded by the fascist Jesuit Jose Marie Escrive, the Knights of Malta confer honorary membership on non Catholics in certain circumstances as a means of forging relationship with persons of power and influence. Moriel and Jacob Prasch of course warn against this organization and we regard both it and the ecumenical agenda it fronts for as being sinister and incompatible with biblical Christianity.
Seminary shut over porn scandal A Vatican-appointed bishop has closed down an Austrian seminary following allegations of sexual impropriety.
Bishop Klaus Kueng said the seminary in St Poelten, near Vienna, had veered away from its mission to train young men into the Roman Catholic Church.
|A 'new beginning' is needed at the |
seminary, Bishop Kueng says
Last month the bishop was appointed by Pope John Paul II to investigate, after a seminary student was charged with distributing child pornography.
The affair has shocked Austria and embarrassed the Catholic Church.
On Thursday Bishop Kueng, of the Austrian city of Feldkirch, accused the seminary leadership of "paying too little attention to recruiting requirements".
To justify the immediate closing down of the establishment, he said: "A new beginning is necessary."
The authorities say images of child pornography and violent sex were found on the college's main computer and a student's hard drive.
The images are also reported to include pictures of students kissing and fondling each other and their older instructors.
