I've said it before but I'll say it again - the Vatican is in trouble. As many of you are already aware, Jeff Anderson, a St. Paul, Minnesota lawyer who’s filed thousands of suits against the church in recent years over allegations of sexual abuse by priests and other church leaders, is leading the charge to depose Pope Benedict XVI.
The Vatican is lashing back in their defense arguing that the pope has immunity as a head of state; that American bishops who oversaw abusive priests weren’t employees of the Vatican; that a 1962 document is not the “smoking gun” that provides proof of a cover-up. Cardinal William J. Levada, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, criticized an article in The New York Times that raised questions about why the Vatican had not defrocked the priest, Father Lawrence C. Murphy. Father Lawrence C. Murphy was accused of molesting as many as 200 boys at a Wisconsin school for the deaf between 1950 to 1974. Court documents that just recently came to the light of day last week detailed the role of the Congregation in ceasing the proceedings of a canonical trial in the matter.
"These documents confirm that the CDF, under Pope Benedict XVI's lead, discouraged prosecution of accused clergy and encouraged secrecy to protect the reputation of the church," said McMurry.
The Vatican may end up skirting any legal responsibilities here but that brings to light a bigger question - Have they no moral responsibility?
I've said this before, but I'm saying it again. Anything organized soon becomes corrupt. Why? Because "man" is involved. It's a sad fact, but the mission of many "organizations" soon becomes lost and replaced by the organizations will to survive. In other words, the organizations will to survive far outweighs it's original mission. That's what I see here. An organization that has been corrupted by man and is focusing on survival. . .rather than it's original mission - mankind.
Having said that, let's peel away some layers here and look at some of the bigger aspects. Let's glance into "the mirror," jump down into the rabbit hole, and take a look at the bigger picture here from a bit of a different perspective. Previously, I wrote a piece titled, "2010 Horoscope: Great Revelations." In this piece, I touched on some of the things that we can expect to see in the year 2010 based on prophecies and on the web bot technology. Here's what was predicted:
"2010 is the year that conspiracy theorists will get to say "I told you so!" Predictions across the board state that matters that have been hidden, secret or brushed under the carpet by world and religious leaders will reveal themselves to the light of day. Things along the lines of aliens or alien technology revealed, religious secrets kept by the Vatican revealed (for those interested, the Vatican just announced last year after secret United Nations meetings, that the possibility of alien life exists), and military secrets kept by our government could be a few of those themes.
In line with that, are the web bot project predictions. The last web bot ALTA report that runs into the summer of 2010 predicted things along these lines:
- A collapse of "The Powers That Be" through discovery of their nefarious doings (keywords: revolution, riots, mobsters, devaluation of the dollar, Vatican involvement, secrets revealed, refugees)
- "The Powers That Be" suffer secrets revealed by rioting mobsters which leads to participation in the "alien wars" theme that keeps repeating itself within the ALTAs (late 2010, early 2011)
- Breakdowns in infrastructure (food destruction, food hoarding, climate collapse, Vatican looting, hyperinflation, breakdown fuels, food deliveries, health care system, public meetings)
It's difficult, after reading the predictions above made in January 2010, to take a look at the current state of affairs concerning the Vatican - and not pay heed to the prophecies. People can mimic, poke fun and minimize astrology, the beliefs of ancient cultures, and prophecy. That's easy to do and it's a bandwagon that many narrow minded individuals jump onto. But these ancient cultures, such as the Maya, and the seers and seekers of days-gone-by realized that time - history - cycles itself. There are specific energy cycles that create patterns in history. When you find the patterns and associate the appropriate energy to the cycle, it becomes easy to predict the future. After further study, it even starts to make sense. It starts to become logical.
For those of you who do not believe that the energy of the planets and celestial bodies do not have an affect on the earth or its inhabitants . . . I simply ask you to take a look at Mother Moon. She controls the tides here on earth as well as the reproductive cycle of it's female inhabitants - the 28 day cycle. There's no denying the tides, there's no denying the energetic push and pull. It simply IS. The fact that many of us might not be able to wrap our minds around that concept really doesn't matter. Because it simply IS. And apparently, the complete knowledge of the mysteries of our universe - are not ours to know. Besides, with the current state humanity is in, I doubt we'd handle that knowledge responsibly. Someone, most likely a world leader, would figure out a way to exploit it for nefarious purposes. So in my opinion, mankind is better off remaining blissfully ignorant.
But it seems that there is some credence to prophecy, conspiracy theorists may just get to say "I told you so" after all, the nefarious doings of religious leaders are coming to light and consequence is beating down the door. It seems there's only one question left:
Will there be a break down in infrastructure and a subsequent revolution?
I will end this piece as I've ended others before . . . just some food for thought, folks. Will you swallow it, or will you choke on it?
P.S. I told you so . . .
