StephenKnappNewsList Main Page /// The Deceit in the Lineage of Popes /// This information points out how the lineage of the popes, or the Vatican's sampradaya, was filled with those who were hardly spiritually advanced, but were instead clinging to various aspects of materialism and urges for what many would call brutal forms of sensual gratification and power. If so many of the Popes were not able to follow the expected path of Chrisitianity, where is the purity that was meant to be given to the people at large? This is the history that the Vatican does not want you to know. /// ------------------------------- /// Throughout the ages, the Holy Roman representatives of the Catholic Christian God on earth have been very naughty boys and girls indeed! Several of the following examples are taken from 'Sex lives of the Popes' by Nigel Cawthorne. The true nature of the Christian messengers of God, the Pope in their true color is revealed below. Two thousand years the Christian tradition of the Bishops of Rome has wholeheartedly supported deceit, murder, sexual depravity, torture, rape, pedophilia, prostitution, incest... Christians and their god apparently permit all these /// It was said that Pope John XII (955-64) invented sins that had not been known since the beginning of the world and whole monasteries spent days and nights praying for his death. He turned his home, the Lateran Palace, into a brothel. He used the papal treasury to pay off his gambling debts. He died on May 14th 964 aged twenty-four, after he was caught in bed by the husband of one of his mistresses in 'the very act of adultery'. /// Pope Innocent VIII (1484-92) sired eight illegitimate sons and probably as many daughters, of whom he openly acknowledged. His reign as Pope was known as 'The Golden Age of Bastards'. He authorized an inquisition against those thought to be witches. On his death bed a wet nurse was found for his final craving - woman's milk. /// Pope John XXII (1316-34) excommunicated fellow clergymen for not paying their taxes. /// In 1932, Pope Pius XI (1922-39) as well as condemning contraception, ordered German Catholics to drop their hostility towards Hitler. He also backed Mussolini's invasion of Abyssinia. /// Pope Celestine II (1143-44) had a certain Count Jordan condemned to a horrible death; he was strapped naked to a scalding iron chair while a red-hot crown was nailed to his head. /// Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) instituted the approved method of interrogation of suspected sodomites. In order to make them confess, suspects were lowered naked onto a red-hot spike. This method was kept until the year 1816. /// Robert of Geneva was well known for his ability to decapitate a man with a pike. He became Pope Clement VII (1378-94) and was 'much given to fleshy pleasure'. He surrounded himself with page boys, whose jackets, it was noted, shrunk from being knee length, to mid-buttock 'or even worse'. /// Pope Benedict XIII (1394-1417) gave a dispensation to the twenty-nine-year-old Richard II of England to marry Isabella, the seven-year-old daughter of the King of France. /// The child-pope Benedict IX (who became Pope at the age of 12!) was bi-sexual, sodomised animals, ordered murders and dabbled in witchcraft and Satanism. He loved to throw wild, bi-sexual orgies. Benedict IX held the post of Pope in the years 1032-44, 1045 and 1047-48. He was described as "A demon from hell in the disguise of a priest...", and St Peter Damian said of him: "That wretch, from the beginning of his pontificate to the end of his life, feasted on immorality". Dante estimated that under Benedict IX the papacy reached an all-time low in immorality and debauchery. When he was 23 he survived an assassination attempt (strangling at the altar during Mass). Benedict went on to marry his cousin and sell the papacy to his godfather, Gregory VI. /// Pope Boniface VII (974; 984-85) was described as: "a horrid monster" and "a man who in criminality surpassed all the rest of mankind". /// In the year 440 Pope Sixtus III (432-40) was tried for the seduction of a nun. /// Pope Leo I (440-61) was a warped and sadistic torturer. He made his victims confess that they mixed semen with the sacrament and used young girls at the altar for the purpose. He was the first Pope to claim the right to put anyone who disagreed with him to death. /// Pope Pius VII (1800-23) condemned bible societies as "a most abominable invention that destroyed the very foundation of religion". /// It was widely rumored that the ex-pirate Pope John XXIII (1410-15) was an Atheist. He tortured his own cardinals and was said to have "had wicked company with two of his own sisters". Robert Hallum, Bishop of Salisbury said that he: "ought to be burnt at the stake". /// The homosexual Pope Paul II (1464-71) liked to see naked men being racked and tortured. Allegedly, he died of a heart attack whilst being sodomized by one of his favorite boys. /// Pope John XIII (965-72) {yes, there were more than one John XIII} was condemned as an adulterer who "defiled his father's concubine and his own niece". He was said to have died at the hands of an enraged husband, caught in the act of adultery - just like his dad, Pope John XII. /// Pope Sergius III (904-11) enjoyed sex with under aged girls. According to the historian Baronius, Sergius III was "the slave of every vice". When he was 45, Sergius took a 15- year-old mistress - the affair produced a son who went on to become Pope John XI. /// Pope Stephen VI (896-97) had the body of his predecessor, Pope Formosus (891-96) dug up, dressed in papal vestments, set on a throne and tried for perjury and coveting the papacy. /// Pope Benedict XII (1334-42) was such a hardened drinker that the expression "drunk as a pope" became popular in his lifetime. /// Pope Anacletus (1130-8) committed incest with his sister and several other female relatives. He enjoyed raping nuns. /// Pope Clement VI (1342-52) was described by Petrarch as "an ecclesiastical Dionysus with his obscene and infamous artifices". Clement VI slept with prostitutes and had dozens of mistresses. When he died, fifty priests said Mass for the repose of his soul for nine consecutive days, but it was generally agreed that this was not going to be nearly enough to prevent the dead pope from going directly to hell. /// Pope Pius II (1458-64) had been a well known author of erotic literature, and had fathered about 12 illegitimate children. /// The Sistine Chapel was built by Pope Sixtus IV (1471-84). He had six illegitimate sons, of which one was the result of an incestuous relationship with his sister. /// Pope Julius II (1503-13) who commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was a pedophile and spent much of his time with small boys and male prostitutes. /// In the year 1095 Pope Urban II introduced the caladium, a sex tax which allowed the clergy to keep mistresses, provided they paid an annual fee to the papacy. This had the immediate effect of reducing the use of concubines and hugely increasing clerical homosexuality. /// Pope Paul III (1534-49) enjoyed an incestuous relationship with his daughter. To gain control of his family inheritance, he poisoned several relatives, including his mother and niece. He killed two cardinals and a Polish bishop to settle an argument over a theological point. Paul III was probably Rome's biggest ever pimp - he kept a roll of about 45,000 prostitutes, who paid him a monthly tribute. /// Pope Julius III (1550-55) sodomized young boys, of which one was his own, illegitimate, son. He appointed several handsome teenage boys as cardinals. Cardinal Della Casa's famous poem In Praise of Sodomy was dedicated to Pope Julius III. /// The conduct of church over the centuries involves murders, tortures and horrors the papacy has caused to humanity. Church historically engaged in political assassinations to impose the will of the Vatican upon the governments of the world. The murder for which the Kanchi Seer was accused was carried out by Opus Dei. /// And then there are other matters, like the mad monks led by Saint Cyril, the patron saint of arsonists, who burned the Great Library at Alexandria, destroying 600,000 volumes of knowledge of the ancient world--the greatest property crime of all time. Then there was that dust-up with Luther and the wars that followed wherein Germany lost half its population in a generation. And of course the slave trade-shall he admit that his church was an instigator and a major player in that institution? And the destruction, plunder, rape and papal pillage of the peoples of the Americas and the eradication of their culture. The "Donation of Constantine" was a forgery. Hence Pope Adrian IV didn't own Ireland and had no right to give it to England. Forging documents has been a Vatican tradition for centuries, and even during John Paul's lifetime, when favored Nazis had Holy See passports to escape Europe and their crimes. Boys were castrated to make them into church singers. Pedophile was the order of the day in churches by the priests. /// After reading this, one may wonder if the lineage of the Popes was really able to pass down anything of real spiritual purity for the good of the common man. /// -------------------------------- /// .............................000000000
