The majority of people today, including Roman Catholics do not know about the true bloody history of the Papal Church of Rome. The true history of the Roman Catholic Church has been hidden away from the eyes of the masses, through the re-writing of the history books, so that they cannot see the truth about the antichrist church, otherwise known as Babylon, the Mother of Harlots. But on this page we will give you a glimpse into the history of Papal Rome, with a timeline of events that took place during the past 1000 years.

Further down the page you will see quotes from the few available (if you dig deep) history books revealing the truth about Papal persecutions.

Please know, this is not out of hate for the people WITHIN the Catholic Church, but hate for what the Catholic Church has done and for what she CONTINUES to do. God is calling His precious children OUT of this church (Babylon) and we are here to help sound that call!

“Under the guise of Christianity, the Papal Church committed more enormities than ever disgraced the annals of paganism. Disregarding the maxims and the spirit of the Gospel, the papal Church, arming herself with the power of the sword, vexed the Church of God and wasted it for several centuries, a period most appropriately termed in history, the ‘dark ages’. “The kings of the earth, gave their power to the Beast.” (Fox’s Book of Martyrs, Ch. IV)

“Roman Catholicism was born in blood, has wallowed in blood, and has quenched its thirst in blood, and it is in letters of blood that its true history is written.” (Baron DePonnat, 1940)

“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.” (Revelation 17:6)

I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits, said Hitler … Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party.” (Hermann Rauschning, former national-socialist chief of the government of Dantzig: ‘Hitler m’a dit’, (Ed. Co-operation, Paris 1939, pp.266, 267, 273 ss).

Before we get into the blood that the Roman Catholic Church has spilt throughout her history, just take a quick look at the following wicked crimes against CHILDREN that this church has committed and STILL continues to commit!

The above is just the tip of the iceberg!

Papal Persecutions

1209 – The Albigensian Crusades in southern France. Roman Catholic crusaders slaughter approximately 20,000 citizens of Beziers, France on July 22, 1209. Both Albigensian Christians and Catholics were slain. By the time the Roman Catholic armies finished their crusade, almost the entire population of southern France (mostly Albigensian Christians) has been exterminated (reference Link 1 and Link 2).

1236 – Roman Catholic crusaders slaughter Jews in the Anjou and Poitou regions of western France in a severe wave of persecution (reference Link 1 and Link 2).

1481 – – At the direction of the Roman Catholic inquisitors, authorities torture, burn and slaughter tens, even hundreds of thousands of people during the Spanish Inquisition (Jean Antoine Llorentine, History of the Inquistion; as cited in R.W. Thompson, The Papacy and the Civil Power (New York, 1876); as cited in Dave Hunt, A Woman Rides the Beast).

1540 – 1570 – Roman Catholic armies butcher at least 900,000 Waldensian Christians of all ages during this 30-year period (source: Halley’s Bible Handbook).

1553 – 1558 – Roman Catholic Queen Mary I of England (aka bloody Mary) attempts to bring England back under the yoke of papal tyranny. During her reign, nearly 300 men and woman are burned to death at the stake. Her victims include bishops, scholars, and other Protestant leaders (Link).

1572 – St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre. French Roman Catholic soldiers begin killing Protestants in Paris on the night of August 24, 1572. The soldiers kill at least 10,000 Protestants during the first three days. At least 8000 more Protestants are killed as the slaughter spreads to the countryside (Link).

1618 – 1648 – The Thirty Years War. This bloody, religious war is planned, instigated, and orchestrated by the Roman Catholic Jesuit order and its agents in an attempt to exterminate all the Protestants in Europe. Many countries in central Europe lose up to half their population (see Cushing B. Hassell, History of the Church of God, Chapter XVII).

1641 – 1649 – Eight years of Jesuit-instigated Roman Catholic butchery of Irish Protestants claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of Protestants (see Cushing B. Hassell, History of the Church of God, Chapter XVII).

1685 – French Roman Catholic soldiers slaughter approximately 500,000 French Protestant Huguenots on the orders of Roman Catholic King Louis 14 of France.

1941 – 1945 – The Roman Catholic Ustashi in Yugoslavia butchered Hundreds of thousands of Yugoslav citizens, Serbs, Jews and Roma. And Hundreds of thousands were forced to convert to Catholicism. (linklinklink)

1949 – 1953 – With the support from the Columbian government, the Roman Catholic Church had 60,000 Protestants and non-Catholics shot, drowned and emasculated. Pope Pius XII awarded the Columbian President with one of the highest awards the church can give.

During her full reign of terror, the Papacy had caused the cruel death of at least 50 MILLION people. The following are quotes from the few available history books concerning Papal persecutions.

“Bertrand, the Papal Legate, wrote a letter to Pope Honorius, desiring to be recalled from the croisade against the primitive witnesses and contenders for the faith. In that authentic document, he stated, that within fifteen years, 300,000 of those crossed soldiers had become victims to their own fanatical and blind fury. Their unrelenting and insatiable thirst for Christian and human blood spared none within the reach of their impetuous despotism and unrestricted usurpations. On the river Garonne, a conflict occurred between the croisaders, with their ecclesiastical leaders, the Prelates of Thoulouse and Comminges; who solemnly promised to all their vassals the full pardon of sin, and the possession of heaven immediately, if they were slain in the battle. The Spanish monarch and his confederates acknowledged that they must have lost 400,000 men, in that tremendous conflict, and immediately after it-but the Papists boasted, that including the women and children, they had massacred more than two millions of the human family, in that solitary croisade against the southwest part of France.” (Bourne, George, The American Textbook of Popery, Griffith & Simon, Philadelphia, 1846, pp. 402-403)

“The Catholic crusade against the Albigenses in Southern France (from 1209-1229), under Popes Innocent III., Honorius III. and Gregory IX., was one of the bloodiest tragedies in human history … The number of Albigenses that perished in the twenty years war is estimated at from one to two millions.” (Cushing B. Hassell, History of the Church of God, Chapter XIV)

“Need I speak to you of the thirty years war in Germany, which was mainly instigated by the Jesuits, in order to deprive the Protestants of the right of free religious worship, secured to them by the treaty of Augsburg? Or of the Irish rebellion, of the inhuman butchery of about fifteen millions of Indians in South America, Mexico and Cuba, by the Spanish papists? In short, it is calculated by authentic historians, that papal Rome has shed the blood of sixty-eight millions of the human race in order to establish her unfounded claims to religious dominion.” (The Glorious Reformation by S. S. SCHMUCKER, 1838 — citing Dr. Brownlee’s ‘Popery an enemy to civil liberty’, p. 105)

“This was the century of the last religious wars in Christendom, the Thirty Years War in Germany, fomented by the Jesuits, reducing the people to cannibalism, and the population of Bohemia from 4,000,000 to 780,000, and of Germany from 20,000,000 to 7,000,000, and making Southern Germany almost a desert.” (Cushing B. Hassell, History of the Church of God, Chapter XVII)

“In one word, the church of Rome has spent immense treasures and shed, in murder, the blood of sixty eight millions and five hundred thousand of the human race, to establish before the astonished and disgusted world, her fixed determination to annihilate every claim set up by the human family to liberty, and the right of unbounded freedom of conscience.” (W C Brownlee, Popery an enemy to civil liberty, 1836, pp. 104-105)

“There perished under pope Julian 200,000 Christians: and by the French massacre, on a moderate calculation, in 3 months, 100,000. Of the Waldenses there perished 150,000; of the Albigenses, 150,000. There perished by the Jesuits in 30 years only 900,000. The Duke of Alva destroyed by the common hangman alone, 36,000 persons; the amount murdered by him is set down by Grotius at 100,000! There perished by the fire, and tortures of the Inquisition in Spain, Italy, and France 150,000 … In the Irish massacres there perished 150,000 Protestants! To sum up the whole, the Roman Catholic church has caused the ruin, and destruction of a million and a half of Moors in Spain; nearly two millions of Jews South America in Europe. In Mexico, and , including the islands of Cuba and St. Domingo, fifteen millions of Indians, in 40 years, fell victims to popery. And in Europe, and the East Indies, and in America, 50 millions of Protestants, at least, have been murdered by it! Thus the church of Rome stands before the world, ‘the woman in scarlet, on the scarlet colored Beast.’ A church claiming to be Christian, drenched in the blood of sixty-eight millions, and five hundred thousand human beings!” (W. C. Brownlee, Letters in the Roman Catholic controversy, 1834, pp. 347-348)

“Alexander Campbell, well known religions leader of the nineteenth century, stated in debate with John B. Purcell, Bishop of Cincinnati, in 1837 that the records of historians and martyrologists show that it may be reasonable to estimate that from fifty to sixty-eight millions of human beings died, suffered torture, lost their possessions, or were otherwise devoured by the Roman Catholic Church during the awful years of the Inquisition. Bishop Purcell made little effort to refute these figures.” (Citing A Debate on the Roman Catholic Religion, Christian Publishing Co., 1837, p. 327.) … (The Shadow of Rome, by John B. Wilder; Zondervan Publishing Co., 1960, page 87)

“Let us keep a sense of proportion. The record of ‘Christianity’ [Roman Catholic] from the days when it first obtained the power to persecute is one of the most ghastly in history. The total number of Manichaeans, Arians, Priscillianists, Paulicians, Bogomiles, Cathari, Waldensians, Albigensians, witches, Lollards, Hussites, Jews and Protestants killed because of their rebellion against Rome clearly runs to many millions; and beyond these actual executions or massacres is the enormously larger number of those who were tortured, imprisoned, or beggared. I am concerned rather with the positive historical aspect of this. In almost every century a large part of the race has endeavored to reject the Christian religion, and, if in those centuries there had been the same freedom as we enjoy, Roman Catholicism would, in spite of the universal ignorance, have shrunk long ago into a sect. The religious history of Europe has never yet been written.” (The Story Of Religious Controversy Chapter XXIII by Joseph McCabe (an atheist) who lived from 1867 to 1955)

“Mede has calculated from good authorities ‘that in the war with the Albigenses and Waldenses there perished of these people, in France alone, 1,000,000.'” (Christ and Antichrist, by Samuel J. Cassels, 1846, page 257)

“Who have their dungeon cells under their cathedrals, in which they claim, as inquisitors of their own diocese, to imprison free men in our republic? Foreign popish bishops! And the facts respecting a man being so confined and scourged, in the cells at Baltimore [AMERICA], until he recanted, have been published, and not to this day contradicted! … Who are in the habit of uttering ferocious threats to assassinate and burn up those Protestants who successfully oppose Romanism? The foreign papists! I have in my possession the evidence of no less than six such inhuman threatenings against myself.” (W. C. Brownlee, Popery the Enemy of Civil and Religious Liberty, J. S. Taylor, New York, 1836, p.210-211)

“It is reckoned that during the reign of Justinian, Africa lost five millions of inhabitants; thus Arianism was extinguished in that region, not by any enforcement of conformity, but by the extermination of the race which had introduced and professed it. – History of the Christian Church, J.C. Robertson, Vol. 1, p. 521.” (Bunch, Taylor, The Book of Daniel, p. 101)

[footnote, speaking of Pope Innocent VIII] “Yet on the papal throne he played the zealot against the Germans, whom he accused of magic, in his bull Summis desiderantes affectibus, etc., and also against the Hussites, whom he well nigh exterminated.” (Williams, Henry Smith, The Historian’s History of the World, vol. 8, p. 643)

“The inquisitor Reinerius, who died in 1259, has left it on record: ‘Concerning the sects of ancient heretics, observe, that there have been more than seventy: all of which, except the sects of the Manichaeans and the Arians and the Runcarians and the Leonists which have infected Germany, have through the favour of God, been destroyed.” (Broadbent, E.H., The Pilgrim Church, Gospel Folio Press, 2002, p. 90 (originally published in 1931)

“An edict was issued under the regency of Theodora, which decreed that the Paulicians should be exterminated by fire and sword, or brought back to the Greek church … It is affirmed by civil and ecclesiastical historians, that, in a short reign, one hundred thousand Paulicians were put to death.” (Andrew Miller, Short Papers on Church, London, Chapter 16)

“The whole number of victims who have been offered up in Europe since the beginning of the Reformation? Partly by war, partly by the Inquisition, and a thousand other methods of Romish cruelty? No less within forty years, if the computation of an eminent writer be just, than five and forty millions! (John Wesley, ‘Doctrine of Original Sin’, Part I, section II.8, 1757, Wesley’s Works, edited by Thomas Jackson, vol. 9, pp. 217-19)

“The inquisition, which was established in the twelfth century against the Waldenses … was now more effectually set to work. Terrible persecutions were carried on in various parts of Germany, and even in Bohemia, which continued about thirty years, and the blood of the saints was said to flow like rivers of water. The countries of Poland, Lithuania, and Hungary, were in a similar manner deluged with Protestant blood.” (Buck, Charles, A Theological Dictionary, containing Definitions of All Religious Terms; …, Philadelphia, Thomas Cowperthwait & Co., 1838, article ‘Persecution’)

“Those who were not put to death suffered imprisonment, had their houses pulled down, their lands laid waste, their property stolen, and their wives and daughters, after being ravished, sent into convents … If any fled from these cruelties, they were pursued through the woods, hunted and shot like wild beasts…At the head of the dragoons, in all the provinces of France, marched the bishops, priests, friars, &c. the clergy being ordered to keep up the cruel spirit of the military. An order was published for demolishing all protestant churches.” (Southwell, Henry, The new book of martyrs; or complete Christian martyrology. Containing an authentic and genuine historical account of the many dreadful persecutions against the Church of Christ, in all parts of the world, … Imprint London : printed for J. Cooke, [1765?] page 108-109)

“In Bohemia, by 1600, in a population of 4,000,000, 80 per cent were Protestant. When the Hapsburgs and Jesuits had done their work, 800,000 were left, all Catholics … In Austria and Hungary half the population Protestant, but under the Hapsburgs and Jesuits they were slaughtered … In Poland, by the end of the 16th century, it seemed as if Romanism was about to be entirely swept away, but here too, the Jesuits, by persecution, killed Reform. In Italy, the Pope’s own country, the Reformation was getting a real hold; but the Inquisition got busy, and hardly a trace of Protestantism was left.” (Halley’s Bible Handbook, p.798)

“The Horrors of the Inquisition, ordered and maintained by the Popes, over a period of 500 years, in which unnumbered millions were Tortured and Burned, constitute the MOST BRUTAL, BEASTLY, and DEVILISH PICTURE in all history.” (Halley’s Bible Handbook, p.732)

Please see THIS DOCUMENT listing more of the Catholic Church’s crimes against children.

Friends, please open your eyes to this antichrist church. This is not God’s church whatsoever. It is an apostate church and history PROVES her status as the main Bible ‘antichrist’ system. The pope thinks he sits IN PLACE OF Christ, acting as if he is God, which is what antichrist actually means in the original language. Someone who puts himself IN PLACE OF Christ. And the doctrines of this church are an abomination to our Holy Heavenly Father. Heed the call today! COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE! (Revelation 18:4).


Child sexual abuse inquiry criticises lack of cooperation from Vatican

The Guardian

Lead counsel also condemns Holy See’s delay in stripping convicted offenders of clerical status

Cardinal Vincent Nichols said he found seeing the issue from the perspective of the survivors ‘sobering’. Vatican’s repeated refusal to cooperate with official investigations into paedophile priests and its delay in stripping convicted offenders of their clerical status has been condemned by the UK’s child sexual abuse inquiry.

In a highly critical attack on the papacy’s stonewalling response to decades of complaints, the lead counsel to the inquiry, Brian Altman QC, said it was “very disappointing” that significant evidence and statements had been withheld.

How Can We Lament the Present Tyranny? Reaping what We have Sown in the Great White North

by Kevin D. Annett

 it starts happening to your people too you’ll understand what we’ve lost, but by then it’ll be too late for everybody. 

– Haida elder Nungklaathgaa (Doug Wilson) to the author, February 2006

History teaches, but it has no pupils. 

– Antonio Gramsci, 1934

The latest call to me for help couldn’t have come at a more appropriate place: an unmarked mass grave of children. 

“Kevin, where have you been?” squawked the voice on my borrowed cell phone. 

“At the Charles Camsell Indian Hospital” I replied. “Ever heard of it?”

“No, no, but look, this is important!” continued the caller. “They just made it a law in Ontario that every child has to be vaccinated or they’ll be expelled from school and their parents will go to jail!”

“So you mean they’ll be like Indians” I said. The caller didn’t understand what I meant.

Doug Wilson could easily have ended up in the ground where I stood that morning. The aged Haida man was stolen from his family by gun-wielding Mounties when he was barely six and somehow survived starvation and tortures at the death camp called the Edmonton Indian residential school. Next door to it was the medical experimental centre called the Charles Camsell Indian Hospital, also run by the United Church. Doug was on the burial detail there, as he recounted to me years ago.

“We were scared as hell that we’d catch something from the dead kids we were burying. They’d all been worked on at the hospital by the church doctors, given some weird injections as part of some drug testing thing. They were all bloated up and yellow with strange scabs all over their bodies. None of the kids who went into those labs ever came out alive. And there was nothing we could do about it.”

“Why not?” I asked him naively.

“Because Indians can’t refuse any medical treatment or shots. Still can’t under the law. We’re just guinea pigs.”

Since Canada began, my people have established and funded and maintained and then concealed our domestic genocidal atrocities. Most Canadians still turn away with disbelief or scorn whenever these crimes are mentioned. Yet these same complicit and accommodated folks are now suddenly outraged that their own freedoms and health are under attack by the same “Crown” authority that sanctioned and led our Group Crime. My people haven’t learned or taken to heart that whatever is done to the most vulnerable among us will eventually be inflicted on everyone.

When it comes to the present police-state legislation requiring mandatory vaccinations of our children, the Canadian government and their Big Pharma string pullers are simply applying everything they’ve done to Indians over the years to the rest of us. We’re all on the Reservation now. 

The truth is that the very methods of repression now being deployed against all of us were first perfected in the Indian schools and hospitals, and for over a century were used to wipe out tens of thousands of children, with our complicity. The terror we caused and allowed against those legions of brown children is now blowing back on our own. That’s why the evidence I’ve surfaced for over a quarter century as well as our campaign to expose genocide in Canada has been so systematically attacked, marginalized, smeared and censored out of sight and mind: because it reveals how and why the present tyranny has come about. And such knowledge and memory is dangerous to the few who continue to milk and bilk the many.

But the sickness called Canada runs deeper. No state immersed in inter generational crime can retain its lawful or its moral substance. As Martin Luther King observed, “To keep others repressed you have to be down there in the ditch with them.” Or as a German friend who’d survived the war years in Berlin once described to me:

“There never was any serious mass opposition to Hitler because as a people we’d lost the capacity to know right from wrong, and to act on what we knew. We all became lost in the same Nacht und Nebel (Night and Fog) that the Nazis imposed on all their opponents.”

The mental and moral fog that enshrouds Christian Canada is not ultimately something that has been done to us; it has been generated by we ourselves and by our long accommodation and service to a blood soaked Empire. If the Canadian government is able to so easily impose its Orwellian statutes on us it is because we have lost the capacity to be other than servile. My Irish grandmother used to say “The Devil can’t put into you what isn’t there already.” If Adolf Hitler psychically represented a defeated, war-ravaged people hungry for vengeance, then the burgeoning police state on this continent is nothing less than the expression of a people who have fed too long off the fruits of genocide to do anything else but choose a slavish security over the risks and costs of freedom. 

Even if we could make such a choice, the basic moral issue is whether Canadians have earned the right to liberty and justice. Like the proverbial death-bed penitent who seeks a cheap, last minute redemption as the void yawns, Canadians want an assurance of justice of which we are not worthy. We have not yet won our right to be a free people. We are too immersed in the Night and Fog of our own complicity and fears to do anything but stumble in blindness, seeking a quick and easy solution to ourselves without understanding who and what we are. 

“They don’t seem to realize that they’re dead”: thus did my buddy John Graham, a Lakota shaman, describe the preened and proper United Church parishioners who hurried past our leaflets and placards one Sunday morning bearing the same oblivious, bovine expression. The seed of murder we have sown to steal and keep this land has filled our Body Politic and each one of us with a harvest of living death. Native or Pale, “sheeple” or “awake”, none of us is spared. We’re in a state of group possession. Anyone who peeks even slightly outside their own self-interested circle knows this to be so.

Can we truly lament the present Tyranny, when it has emerged from ourselves and through which we have reaped all its material benefits up until now? To genuinely mourn is to let go of a life that is dead and gone, and take the first step towards freedom: the kind that lies beyond our present selves. For the true mourner knows that things are over, that no healing or “reconciliation” is possible, that a life and even an entire culture has ended. Only then can a new world be born. But first we each must grieve and wail from our guts, and let go of the corpse that we all cling to for answers. Leave the fallen city, and seek your salvation elsewhere.

Fallen indeed is the great city of Babylon known as Canada. Why then are we hoping for rescue from its latest repressive laws through the very courts that serve the monster that we have created? Can one wing of the problem protest or oppose the other? Hope lies elsewhere. Seeking freedom and a new spirit and name in the desert outside the city walls is never easy, practical or desirable for a captive people like Canadians. But there is no other course for us.

What does it all mean? Simply this: Seek yourself elsewhere than in what you presently are. Take your children and your best self and leave the power and its jurisdiction that you serve, while you still can. The Republic of Kanata awaits you once it has emerged from within you.

Fraud Thriving In U.S. Churches, But You Wouldn’t Know It


Nov 18, 2013

Walter Pavlo

uncaptioned Washington Post’s investigation on fraud into nonprofit organizations revealed that incidents are either not reported at all or reported but not directed to authorities … bad news, like “theft,” does not sit well with contributors. When I looked at the list of nonprofit organizations in the Post’s story, I did not see any churches on it so I called my good friend Alton Sizemore of Forensic Strategic Solutions, Inc. in Birmingham, AL to see why he thought that was the case. Sizemore told me, “The reason you did not see any churches on the list is because churches are not required to do an annual report.”  What?!”

Sizemore pointed me to a line in the tax code:

“Every organization exempt from federal income tax under IRS 501(a) must file an annual information return except: 1) A church …. “

Vatican Bank faces corruption and fraud accusations | Money Talks

TRT World

6. velj 2018.
 The Catholic Church is a big business. With more than a billion followers, it is the richest religion in the world. But the Vatican Bank is accused of corruption and abetting money laundering. And while Pope Francis has promised to clean up its finances, there are calls for the bank to prosecute criminal cases. So how deep are the pockets of the Catholic Church? Maria Ramos speaks to Father Robert Gahl, a Catholic priest, who says many in the church want financial reform, but the process is slow.

Inescapable Influence ‘How the Christian Revolution Remade the World’

The author Tom Holland is trying to present in a positive light the influence of Christian acitivity in all segments of life througout history.

What fanatical Christians are trying hard to conceal, Holland proves – the influence of Christian Church values is present everywhere, even in human rights.

Precisely those monstruous Christian Church values, which have nothing in common with the original divine teachings, are the reason why the world is in total chaos and has fallen into decay.

 “It is the incomplete revolutions which are remembered; the fate of those who triumph is to be taken for granted,” writes Tom Holland in his new book, Dominion. Illustrations of this pithy observation aren’t hard to find. Just a couple of years ago we celebrated the centenary of the October Revolution, which turned out to be not only incomplete but, in the long run, a spectacular failure. One might even venture to say that the noisier the remembrance, the more dubious the event being remembered. Yet who doesn’t love a good failure once in a while? Be that as it may, Holland’s book is not about failed or incomplete revolutions, but about one that has succeeded, reshaping the world in a decisive, if sometimes unassuming, manner.

Indeed, the “Christian revolution” has proved so successful in remaking the West that, two millennia on, it has become virtually impossible to separate Christianity from Western civilization. Whether we like it or not, we in the West inhabit a world that remains structured by Christian assumptions and informed by Christian ideas. Political and civic institutions, legal systems, codes of behavior, artistic tastes, practices of everyday life—they all, in one way or another, visibly or invisibly, bear the mark of Christ. The Christian revolution has been so complete, observes Holland, that two thousand years after his birth, it is no longer necessary to believe “that he rose from the dead to be stamped by the formidable—indeed the inescapable—influence of Christianity.” However secular one’s lifestyle might be, to live in today’s West is “to live in a society still utterly saturated by Christian concepts and assumptions.” And that’s the case not only with the Christians living there; it is “no less true for Jews and Muslims than it is for Catholics and Protestants,” writes Holland.

Ironically, the Christian revolution has been so successful that even to criticize or oppose Christianity has required borrowing some of its tools. One of the accomplishments of Holland’s book is to show not just that some of the most anti-Christian, or even overtly atheist figures, from Voltaire to Marx to Nietzsche, were philosophically dependent on the position they attacked, but also that some of their objections and criticisms had already been formulated in Christian circles at one point or another. Fierce freethinkers though they were, they were not completely free from using concepts, ideas, and arguments that originated in the Christian camp. The charges that Voltaire brought against Christianity, for example—that it produced bigots and spread superstitions, or that the Bible was full of contradictions—were not exactly his invention. As Holland observes, such accusations “had been honed, over the course of two centuries and more, by pious Christians.” You could tell Voltaire learned something from the Jesuits with whom he studied in his youth.

But it wasn’t only in their negative approaches that the West’s progressive figures borrowed from Christianity even as they eviscerated it. When they formulated programs and put together various proposals for the betterment of their fellow humans, they helped themselves just as liberally from the religion they rejected. Holland skillfully demonstrates how some of the more emblematic moments in the modern West were informed, though not always obviously, by Christian ideas. For all its anticlerical notes, such was the case with the Enlightenment, for instance. Voltaire’s “dream of a brotherhood of man” often felt like a reheating of similar visions we find in St. Paul. Just as Paul had proclaimed that “there was neither Jew nor Greek in Jesus Christ, so—in a future blessed with full enlightenment—was there destined to be neither Jew nor Christian nor Muslim.” The deliverance of humanity from darkness, on which the philosophes would gleefully swear, was something that generations of Christian educators and reformers knew a thing or two about. These visionaries had been “counting down the hours to an upheaval in the affairs of the earth” that would deliver it from darkness. “The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.”

“The influence of Christianity can be found in the most unexpected of places sometimes. Take human rights.”

“That’s fine,” I seem to hear a skeptical reader saying. “This may work in the case of the Enlightenment, but you are not going to say that Marxism or Communism, for example, also had Christian roots, are you?” That’s precisely one of the subtler points Holland is making in Dominion. In the foundational texts of Christianity there are places where a fundamental solidarity with the poor and the hungry, the powerless and downtrodden, is formulated. Jesus himself called these people “brothers,” and identified with them unreservedly (“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me”), whereas for those at the other end of the power spectrum, he had a different message (“Woe to you who are rich!”). And the first generations of Christians understood quite well what Christ had meant: “We have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world,” writes Paul (1 Corinthians 4:13). Importantly, such a social vision is not just a peripheral feature of Christianity, or something added later by charitable souls, but stems from the central doctrine of Christianity: the Incarnation. As Holland puts it, “by making himself nothing, by taking on the very nature of a slave,” Christ had “plumbed the depths to which only the lowest, the poorest, the most persecuted and abused of mortals were confined.” In early Christian communities, all were “brothers” and “sisters,” everything was held in common, and power was deliberately shunned—a radical response to the radicalism of Christ’s own message. Various forms of what would later be called “socialism” or “communism,” recurrent throughout Christian history (from the Taborites to the Münster Anabaptists to countless other fringe groups) took those early communities as a good model to follow.

By the time Karl Marx entered the scene, then, Christianity already had a long and colorful history of toying with the communist idea. Coming from a solid rabbinical environment as he did, Marx didn’t fail to recognize a great Jewish teacher when he saw one, even when that teacher had ended up inspiring another religion altogether. Even the terminology used by Marx “to construct his model of class struggle—‘exploitation,’ ‘enslavement,’ ‘avarice’—owed less to the chill formulations of economists than to something far older: the claims to divine inspiration of the biblical prophets.” Marx’s famous formulation “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” looks to Holland like a cheeky act of plagiarism from the Acts of the Apostles: “Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to everyone as he had needed.”

The influence of Christianity can be found in the most unexpected of places sometimes. Take human rights. One would think that they belong firmly in the secular sphere: What are they, the common assumption goes, if not the invention of modern secular jurists, the daily bread of our godless lawyers? Nothing very Christian about it. And yet it was a Catholic figure, Bartolomé de las Casas, who—horrified by the devastation that the first European colonists brought about in the New World, of which he had firsthand knowledge—came up with the notion of derechos humanos, at the time as bold an idea as it was farseeing. He argued for the rights and dignity of the natives on the basis of the humanity they shared with the colonists: “All the peoples of the world are humans, and there is only one definition of all humans and of each one, and that is that they are rational.”

Holland is too self-aware and sophisticated an author to imagine that, if the whole world around him is suffused with Christian assumptions, he alone—in writing about Christianity—is somehow exempt from this influence. He gladly acknowledges the sign under which he labors. And that, far from undermining his approach, makes it even stronger because more honest:

Even to write about it in a Western language is to use words shot through with Christian connotations. “Religion,” “secular,” “atheist”: none of these are neutral. All, though they derive from the classical past, come freighted with the legacy of Christendom. Fail to appreciate this, and the risk is always anachronism.

The influence of Christianity on Western life—social, political, economic, intellectual, and linguistic—is, then, as pervasive as it is inescapable. No matter what we do, regardless of our personal faith (or faithlessness), we are—in our dealings with the world, with others, and with ourselves—bound to reenact some Christian truth, reheat an old Christian idea and serve it as new, or “invent” what may have been a commonplace in the life of the traditional Christian. We can certainly protest and rebel, but we will most likely end up with Christian assumptions even in our protestations. For all our sophisticated secularism, Christianity is here to stay, even if it takes increasingly disguised forms. The West, concludes Holland, “increasingly empty as the pews may be, remains firmly moored in its Christian past.”

Of course, what is true of Christianity in the West is elsewhere true of Islam, Buddhism, and Confucianism—to give only the most obvious examples. This is touching testimony to the power of ideas to change the world. Compared with the glittering importance that, say, empires and armies enjoy, ideas seem utterly insignificant—next to nothing, really. Caught under the heavy weight of material conditions, they appear fragile and ephemeral. Cut off the head of the philosopher, stone the prophet to death, and their ideas will die with them—that’s the materialist’s assumption. In practice, however, things are more complicated. Sometimes it’s precisely the death of their originator that gives ideas a new life. Provided they are sown in the right soil, at the right time, and by the right person, ideas can end up much harder than stone. The Buddhist idea is alive and thriving even though there are almost no physical traces left of the material world from which Siddhārtha Gautama came. That goes for the founder of Islam too. And who would have guessed that the crucifixion of a seemingly insignificant Jew by the world’s greatest empire would give birth to a world-changing movement? But it did, and Tom Holland does a fine job of showing just how profound and pervasive the change was. If you needed a book to give to someone who doesn’t know much about Christianity, Dominion would be an excellent choice. But you could also offer it to those who seem to know a bit too much, or all the wrong things, about Christianity.

How the Christian Revolution Remade the World

Germany’s Catholic Church struggles with women and power


Catholic women are demanding change in the church and giving Germany’s bishops an earful as they meet in Fulda. The bishops are under pressure — from the progressive grassroots at home and from a reluctant Vatican.


Cardinal Reinhard Marx speaks with demonstrators from the Catholic Women's Community of Germany (kfd) in Fulda

They won’t let up. Catholic women protested in the central city of Fulda ahead of the plenary assembly of Germany’s Catholic bishops on Monday afternoon. “We want to be visible and audible. And I believe that we owe it to the women and men of the Catholic Church that we are heard more,” said Mechthild Heil, head of the Catholic Women’s Community of Germany (kfd). With 450,000 members, the biggest Catholic women’s group in the country is pressing for women to gain access to all church offices — including the priesthood.

Heil and around 150 kfd members demonstrated in Fulda, making their way through downtown with a group of drummers, banners, placards and big pink crosses on their way to the seminary next to the cathedral. There they issued their demands to the bishops and spoke with the head of the German Bishops’ Conference, Cardinal Reinhard Marx.

The lead-up to this protest has been long: Nearly 10 years ago the scandal over sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in Germany broke as numerous cases at a Berlin Jesuit school came to light. New information, as well as increasing numbers of cases and reports from victims, has continued to emerge since then. In the past decades, well over a thousand priests committed tens of thousands of offenses against thousands of victims. They were hushed up and ignored until a study in autumn 2018 revealed the magnitude of the scandal. That prompted a growing discussion about patriarchal thinking in the male-dominated church and the relationship between abuse of power and sexual abuse.

Mechthild HeilMechthild Heil believes it’s high time the Catholic Church allow women in ministry

But the issue is also about women. “We can’t avoid the question of women,” said Osnabrück Bishop Franz-Josef Bode, vice chair of the German Bishops’ Conference. Bode and other bishops have been calling for a debate about allowing female deacons in the church.

Many prominent nuns go further still. Women should “pose the power question,” said Sister Katharina Ganz, mother superior of the Oberzell Franciscan convent, and underlines that no pope has said that excluding women from the ministry — as deacons, priests or bishops — is part of church dogma.

Post from the pope

Bishops and laypeople in Germany want to embark on a “synodal path” and tackle fundamental questions. On the subject of women in church office, a preparatory working group found that as women and men are equal in legal terms in most countries, women’s position in the Catholic Church does “not reflect the societal expectations of equitable participation in leadership services.”

But there is a deep chasm in the church. In late June, Pope Francis wrote a letter to German Catholics that was interpreted as being as encouraging as it was admonishing. Ten days ago, important cardinals of the Roman Curia joined in and admonished the German bishops, while Cologne Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Marx’s most important opponent in the German Bishops’ Conference, declared the discussion about women becoming priests over.

It remains unclear what will happen with the “synodal path.” Marx spoke to Pope Francis late last week in Rome and will discuss those talks when he meets with the bishops, who are divided over “the women question.”

“Somehow it harks back to the old days when Woelki says: ‘The debate is over,'” said Heil of the Catholic Women’s Community. Woelki’s rejection is out of tune with the times. “It is the last attempt to say: ‘I am putting my foot down,'” she told DW. There are issues of power and historical arguments for excluding women from the priesthood but there is no theological argument, she said.

That’s why they’re demonstrating. Every September for the past 10 years, Heil’s group has rallied under the slogan “Stand up for a gender-equitable church!” But this is the first time there’s been a full-throated demonstration like in Fulda.

Compensation for abuse victims

There has been some movement when it comes to dealing with cases of sexual abuse. For the first time ever, a prominent representative of the victims will be allowed to speak to the assembly of bishops. Matthias Katsch, spokesman for the Eckiger Tisch victims’ initiative, said he will present the 69 men with his group’s recommendations for redress on Tuesday, which include financial compensation of €300,000 ($330,000) for victims of sexual abuse. So far, the bishops have consistently rejected across-the-board settlements.

Monday’s women’s demonstration won’t be the only protest during the four days of discussions. On Thursday, the group Maria 2.0 plans to demonstrate under the slogan “Now it’s time: Women fight for their church,” while the Catholic Youth Community (KjG) will push for “courageous” structural change in the church.

Archbishop who called on pope to resign says Francis was ‘blatantly lying to the whole world’


June 10, 2019

After writing a letter calling on Pope Francis to resign on the grounds that he had tolerated a known sexual abuser, Carlo Maria Viganò refused to disclose his location or say much about his self-imposed exile

In the instant he became one of the most controversial figures in modern Catholic Church history, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò went dark.

The retired Vatican ambassador to Washington wrote a bombshell letter last summer calling on Pope Francis to resign on the grounds that he had tolerated a known sexual abuser. As that letter was published, Viganò turned off his phone, told friends he was disappearing, and let the church sort through the fallout.
