We as born-again, Spirit-filled Christians belong to the True Church. That is not an organization, but a spiritual fellowship. You can’t join it, you are spiritually born into it by believing in the Messiah Jesus and receiving His living Spirit into your heart. It’s made up of all individuals who have done this, wherever they are, and however many or few they are. Together they form, in the sight of God, the Mystical Body of Christ. Each individual true believer is a member or part of Jesus’ Body and He is the Head Who controls it all. God deals with Israel as a NATION (they are God’s nation, and His only nation, under the Law given to them on Mount Sinai). God deals with the non-Israelites, the Gentiles, AS INDIVIDUALS, through the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah. Now that is the true Church of Jesus, the Mystical Body of Christ.
On the other hand, since the corruption of the early Church in the Middle Ages, there are many false, so-called Christian CULTS or organizations, which a person JOINS. This is a different thing altogether. It was never ordained by God. Examples of these cult organizations are the Roman “Catholic” cult, the oldest of all, formed and organized at the Nicene Council in AD 325 under Emperor Constantine. That eventually split into two wings, the Western or Latin or Vatican form in Rome and the Eastern or Orthodox form in Greece and later Russia. Then after one thousand years of Dark Ages brought on by that cult came the Reformation, in the 16th and following centuries, when many true Spirit-filled Christians like Martin Luther and John Wesley etc. broke away, trying to reform individual Christians and get them back to the original true Spirit-filled way. Unfortunately their later followers formed multiple organizations themselves, imitating the bad practice of the “Mother” of organizations, Rome. So was formed the Lutheran cult organization, the Methodist cult organization, the Presbyterian cult organization, the Anglican cult organization, the Pentecostal cult organizations etc. etc. What a mess! But through it all there have been individuals in those organizations and out of them who have got filled with the Spirit of Christ and entered into the true Mystical Body of the Messiah.
Now at the end-time the false organizations are banding together, as prophesied in the Holy Bible under two main umbrella groups, the Roman “Catholic” cult and the Ecumenical movement also known as the World Council of “Churches”. They are the ANTI or FALSE so-called Churches versus the true Spirit-filled Church. As always the FALSE persecutes and outlaws and condemns the TRUE. The false also works by EARTHLY not by SPIRITUAL HEAVENLY SUPERNATURAL power. The FALSE Church uses POLITICS AND MONEY AND WAR to achieve its ends. In the end-time it’s prophesied the false cults will band together against the Spirit-filled Mystical TRUE Church, composed of believing Spirit-filled individuals, and against God’s chosen nation, Israel.
The false cults’ hatred of Israel explains why they form alliances with anti-Israel Muslim dictatorships. Via the Muslim dictators and terrorist groups they ATTACK ISRAEL. You can see many examples of this right now in the Middle East. For example, the murderous regime of Assad in Syria is massacring its own population as this is written, simply because they want freedom, and the whole Satanic regime is propped up BY ORTHODOX, SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN RUSSIA. So-called “Christian” America meanwhile DOES NOTHING TO STOP HIS MASSACRING, JUST LIKE THEY DID NOTHING TO STOP HITLER’S MASSACRING OF JEWS IN WORLD WAR 2. I suppose afterwards they’ll all “feel sorry”. Likewise in Saudi Arabia the massacring dictatorship of the current Saudi royal family, which suppresses the majority of the population in Bahrain with tanks and secret police IS PROPPED UP BY THE VATICAN OR ROMAN “CATHOLIC” CULT, USING ITS ALLIES IN THE USA. Also the Ecumenical movement or World Council of “Churches” regularly uses its vast monetary resources to support PALESTINIAN MAFIA TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE PLO AND HAMAS to attack and terrorize Israel. This explains the obsession of these cults with the Middle East. Now if you imagine that these so-called “Church” organizations don’t have political or military “clout”, you need a lesson in history. FOLLOW THE MONEY. Whoever HAS THE MONEY CONTROLS POLITICS.
Well, you might say, that means the colossal multi-national corporations control politics. To an extent that is true. But who controls the multi-national corporations???? Clearly the organizations WITH MORE MONEY THAN THEY HAVE. Now let’s take a very rough look at the financial clout of the Ecumenical movement, the World Council of “Churches”. This more or less represents the combined forces of the so-called Protestant organizations. These groups, of course, don’t like to spill the beans on how much money and assets they own — it would kinda give away their agenda. They’re not spiritual Christ-like organizations, they’re political regimes.
Still we can estimate the COLOSSAL SIZE OF THEIR FINANCIAL AND POLITICAL POWER by taking ONE SMALL item on their ASSETS-LIST and totting up its worth in dollars. The following gives a very underestimated total of their LOW-END PROPERTY ASSETS ONLY, that is the total of low-end Church buildings owned by these groups. It’s based on the market-value of the average Church property in Texas USA, and merely the kind of property they’d like to sell off right now, that is LOW-END. It doesn’t include the much better properties they want to keep (like CATHEDRALS, HUGE GREAT COMPLEXES ETC IN THE PLUSHEST PARTS OF THE LAND, particularly in CENTRAL CITY LOCATIONS). I would estimate if you included these you’d have to multiply the total by at least ten times. Also, it doesn’t include the enormous investments in land and infrastructure these super-rich organizations possess (malls, factories, commercial operations, legal and illegal), which is of vastly superior financial worth. Now just take this LOW-END ASSET LIST OF THROW-AWAY CHURCH BUILDINGS. Let me tell you the result before I give you the figures. The estimated low-end asset list value of the WCC (World Council of “Churches” or Ecumenical movement) in the developed world (USA and Europe combined) IS 1.1 TRILLION DOLLARS. THAT BEATS HANDS-DOWN NUMBERS 1 AND 2 OF THE MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE, APPLE AND EXXON-MOBIL, who total a measly $528.38 billion and $391.67 billion respectively. POOR NEIGHBORS! THE VATICAN IS MUCH RICHER THAN THE WORLD COUNCIL OF “CHURCHES” OF COURSE SINCE IT’S BEEN GOING FOR A COUPLE OF THOUSAND YEARS OR SO.
In the following rough calculation of low-end property assets WCC stands for World Council of “Churches”:
$28,884,238 sale value of 25 church buildings Texas area. Therefore average value $1,155,369.52 or approx. $1,000,000 per property.
Of the Episcopalian churches: “He took most of the Diocese of Fort Worth with him: 48 churches, 15,000 parishioners, and more than 58 clergy.”
Episcopalians 69 churches Dallas diocese. Total Dallas-FW = 117
Round total value Dallas-FW = $100,000,000.
WCC “A worldwide fellowship of 349 churches seeking unity”
Say top 5 of the WCC organizations are roughly equivalent to Episcopalians in property low-end
Rough estimate: half these churches have half the property value.
Other half has equivalent to a single “ecumenical property value unit”
Therefore, total WCC property value = $100,000,000 x 5 + $50,000,000 x 172 + $1,000,000 x 172
= 500,000,000 + 8,600,000,000 + 172,000,000 = $9,272,000,000
Approx $10 billion (low end). Population of Dallas-FW metroplex approx. 6.5 million. USA population approx 312 million.
Therefore proportionately total US WCC property value = 312/6.5 x 9,272,000,000 = 48 x 9,272,000,000 = $445,056,000,000
Approx $450 billion.
12% of world population lives in North America Western Europe
World Population = approx. 7,000,000,000
12% = 840,000,000 therefore 840/6.5 = approx 129
129 x 9,272,000,000 = 1,196,088,000,000 = property value WCC developed world (low end), approx $1.1 trillion
Compare current approx market value of Exxon Mobil = $391.67 billion
1 United States Apple Electronics $528.38 billion
2 United States Exxon Mobil Oil and gas $391.67 billion
3 United States Microsoft Information technology $261.46 billion
4 China PetroChina Oil and gas $246.83 billion

Read this detailed, factual, statement of the Vatican’s role in Croatia in World War 2 and continuing to the present day. The only criticism I have of this article is IT IS TOO KIND ON PIUS XII, AS HE KNOWINGLY AND DELIBERATELY SUPPORTED THE MASSACRE OF JEWS IN WORLD WAR 2. But, as this article says he certainly and very openly targeted the Orthodox Serbs, as the Vatican does today. The Vatican nowadays uses United Nations declarations and NATO troops to put its evil anti-Orthodox policies into practice in Kosovo, as it equally uses the United Nations as a forum for battering the Jews and accusing them of “holocaust”.

“Mass grave of history: Vatican’s WWII identity crisis
BY JULIA GORIN
Catholic Church, looking for a bulwark against communism, supported what became genocidal regime of Nazi satellite Croatia.
The controversy over the canonization of Pope Pius XII concerns whether he spoke out enough against the slaughter of Jews during World War II. But that question is a red herring when trying to grasp the big picture of the Vatican’s role during the war.
The real question is whether the Vatican supported the world order, or at least aspects of it, that the Third Reich promised to bring, a world order in which dead Jews were collateral damage – which Pius indeed regretted. The answer can be found in a region of Europe that is generally ignored despite being the nexus of world wars: the Balkans.
The Catholic Church was looking for a bulwark against expanding, ruthless, church-destroying communism, but in doing so it supported a Croatian movement called Ustasha, which rose to become the genocidal regime of Nazi satellite Croatia.
American historian Jared Israel points to a February 17, 1941 New York Times article which reported that the archbishop of Zagreb (Croatia’s capital), Alojzije (Aloysius) Stepinac, was holding conferences in Vatican City “seeking the freedom of Catholic priests detained in [pre-Nazi] Croatia in connection with the circulation of… ‘Free Croatia!’ pamphlets, attributed to Ante Pavelic.” Pavelic, who once criticized Hitler for originally being too soft on the Jews, was the founder of the fascist Ustashas, who were engaging in terrorism all over Europe to “liberate” Croatia from Yugoslavia. He famously said, “A good Ustasha is one who can use a knife to cut a child from the womb of its mother.”
Israel explains the significance of the understated Times article: “The arrested priests were agitating for a fascist coup d’etat,” and if these had been rogue priests, “the Vatican would have disciplined them and perhaps issued a statement condemning them; it certainly would not have [held] top-level conferences to manage their defense.”
At the time, Pavelic was being harbored in Mussolini’s Italy – where his Ustasha soldiers were being trained – after France sentenced him to death for masterminding the 1934 double assassination of Yugoslavian King Alexander I and French foreign minister Louis Barthou. When Hitler invaded Yugoslavia in April 1941, Pavelic was activated and became fuehrer, or “Poglavnik,” of the new, clerical-fascist Croatia.
Archbishop Stepinac held a banquet for Pavelic, blessed the Ustasha leader and regime, calling them “God’s hand at work,” and the following month had Pavelic received by Pius XII. This was four days after the massacre in the town of Glina, where the Ustashas locked hundreds of Serbian Orthodox inside their church and burned it down, as became standard practice in Pavelic’s Independent State of Croatia (known by its Croatian acronym NDH). Pius XII received Pavelic despite a Yugoslav envoy’s request that he not do so, given the atrocities taking place.
In July of that year, Pavelic’s minister of education, Mile Budak, publicly outlined the purification process, already being implemented against Serbs: Kill a third, expel a third, convert a third.
That August, more than a thousand Serbs had gathered inside another Glina church for conversion, after which Zagreb police chief Bozidar Corouski announced, “Now that you are all Roman Catholics, I guarantee you that I can save your souls, but I cannot save your bodies.” In came Ustasha henchmen with bludgeons, knives and axes, killing all but one man – Ljuban Jednak – who played dead, then stole away from the mass grave he was dumped into.
Pius and Pavelic continued exchanging “cordial telegrams,” as author Vladimir Dedijer – former cochairman of Bertrand Russell’s International War Crimes Tribunal – wrote in his 1992 book The Yugoslav Auschwitz and the Vatican. The Croatian Catholic press consistently published approving articles about the regime.
In his forthcoming book The Krajina Chronicles: A Short History of Serbs in Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia, Dr. Srdja Trifkovic writes, “A part of the Roman Catholic hierarchy became de facto accomplices, as did a majority of the clergy. The leading NDH racial ‘theorist’ was a clergyman, Dr. Ivo Guberina… He urged Croatia’s ‘cleansing of foreign elements’ by any means. His views were echoed by the influential head of the Ustasha Central Propaganda Office, Fr. Grga Peinovic.
“When the anti-Serb and anti-Jewish racial laws of April and May 1941 were enacted, the Catholic press welcomed them as vital for ‘the survival and development of the Croatian nation’… Archbishop of Sarajevo [then part of Croatia] Ivan Saric declared… ‘It is stupid and unworthy of Christ’s disciples to think that the struggle against evil could be waged… with gloves on.'”
IN AN unusual move, Germany entrusted Croatia with running its own concentration camps, without oversight. Shamefully, clergy members took a voracious dive into the bloodbath, serving as guards, commanders and executioners at the 40 camps, most famously Jasenovac, the Holocaust’s third-largest yet least spoken-of camp. There, they killed Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and anti-fascist Croats. On August 29, 1942, a friar from the monastery of Siroki Brijeg, named Petar Brzica, won first place for killing the most Serbs in the shortest time, boasting 1,350 throats slit in one night.
Historian Carl Savich quotes an AP report stating that “a priest from Petricevac led Croat fascists, armed with hatchets and knives, to a nearby village. In the 1942 attack, they butchered 2,300 Serbs.” Testimony from a survivor of that February 7 massacre, Selo Drakulic, reads: “Prior to killing the adults, unborn children were violently cut from their mothers’ womb[s] and slaughtered. Of the remaining children in the village, all under the age of 12, the Ustashas brutally removed arms, legs, noses, ears and genitals. Young girls were raped and killed, while their families were forced to witness the violation and carnage. The most grotesque torture of all was the decapitation of children, their heads thrown into the laps of their mothers, who were themselves then killed.”
Archive photos of sadism that would make horror filmmakers blush survive today: Ustashas displaying an Orthodox priest’s head; an eyeless peasant woman; Serbs and Jews being pushed off a cliff; a Serb with a saw to his neck; and a smiling Ustasha holding the still-beating heart of prominent industrialist Milos Teslitch, who had been castrated, disemboweled and his ears and lips cut off.
Italian writer Curzio Malaparte in his 1944 book Kaputt offers this detail: “While [Pavelic] spoke, I gazed at a wicker basket on the Poglavnik’s desk [which] seemed to be filled with mussels, or shelled oysters… ‘Are they Dalmatian oysters?’ I asked. [Pavelic] said smiling, ‘It is a present from my loyal Ustashas… Forty pounds of human eyes.'”
In their 1991 book Unholy Trinity: The Vatican, the Nazis and the Swiss Banks, reporter Mark Aarons and former Justice Department attorney John Loftus corroborate the grisly Croatian crimes, as does Genocide in Satellite Croatia 1941-1945 by Edmond Paris: “The Italians photographed an Ustasha wearing two chains of human tongues and ears around his neck.”
It has been 60 years, and the world still doesn’t know the story of wartime Croatia, where not only did the Vatican not speak out against crimes, not only was it complicit in the genocide of a million people, but it subsequently never expressed remorse for the spilled Orthodox blood as it’s done for Jewish blood. Because the world never demanded it. Which points to the same apprehensions that have dogged Jewish groups about the Vatican’s genuineness, especially with its reluctance to open archives about Pius’s World War II conduct.
ONE CAN’T help wondering whether the Vatican as an institution was silently cheering the decimation of its Orthodox rival. Stepinac, who was photographed blessing the Ustashas before an upcoming battle or slaughter, reported in May 1944 the good news about 244,000 forced conversions to Pius. (Pius himself might have caught BBC broadcasts such as on February 16, 1942: “The Orthodox are being forcibly converted to Catholicism and we do not hear the archbishop’s voice preaching revolt. Instead it is reported that he is taking part in Nazi and fascist parades.”) Observing the liquidation of Croatia’s Orthodox, Heinrich Himmler’s second-in-command, Reinhard Heydrich, wrote a February 17, 1942, letter to Himmler stating, “It is clear that the Croat-Serbian state of tension is not least of all a struggle of the Catholic Church against the Orthodox Church.”
It is not Jews to whom the Church owes the biggest apology over World War II, but Serbs. If by not speaking out about Europe’s Jews Pius hoped to avoid endangering millions of Catholics, what could have been the reason for not speaking out about Croatia, which itself horrified the Nazis to the point that German and Italian soldiers started shielding Serbs from Ustashas? And what would have been the risk to the faithful inside Croatia?
A July 5, 1994, Washington Times article attempted to get to the bottom of why so little is known of the Croatia chapter of World War II, and why Jasenovac is so rarely spoken of: “For years the gruesome details… remained officially taboo. Although documents and eyewitness accounts were at first ignored, and then mysteriously removed from international archives… [i]t now appears that a vast international conspiracy involving Marshal Josip Broz Tito… [and] the United Nations, some Vatican officials and even Jewish organizations strove to keep the Jasenovac story buried forever… Tito’s watchwords were ‘brotherhood and unity,’ and to pursue these high goals he tried to erase the chapter of Jasenovac. The West generally went along, particularly after Tito broke with Stalin in 1948. The Vatican wanted to protect Roman Catholic Croats, who had been willing Nazi proxies in the Balkans.
“The silence of Jewish organizations is less easily explained… [The late Milan Bulajic, of Belgrade’s Genocide Museum, met] officials of the Holocaust Museum [in Washington to] find out why no one mentions the Yugoslav Jews who died there. He did not seem to get a clear-cut answer… When Yugoslavia fell apart in 1991… troops of newly independent Croatia briefly captured the site and, according to Serbian sources, blew up whatever was left of the camp and destroyed all remaining records.”
An apology is also owed to Catholic clergy whose appeals the Church ignored. Archbishop Misic of Mostar, Herzegovina, asked Stepinac to use his influence with authorities to prevent the massacres. And Bulajic wrote of a group of Slovenian Catholic priests who were “sent to the Jasenovac camp because they refused to serve a mass of thanksgiving to Ustasha leader Ante Pavelic… One of the imprisoned Slovenian priests, Anton Rantasa, managed to escape… On 10 November 1942, he informed [Stepinac and the papal legate Ramiro Marcone]… on the crimes of genocide being perpetrated at Jasenovac. He was told to keep silent.”
Similarly, historian Savich writes, “It bears noting that Stepinac was tried and convicted… by Roman Catholic Croats… under the regime of a Roman Catholic Croatian… Many of the historians who documented the Ustasha NDH genocide were Roman Catholic Croats, such as Viktor Novak.”
In his 1950 book Behind the Purple Curtain, Walter Montano wrote of the Stepinac trial: “A parade of prosecution witnesses testified at Zagreb, on October 5, 1946, that Catholic priests armed with pistols went out to convert Orthodox Serbs and massacred them… Most of the witnesses were Croat Catholic peasants and laborers.”
INDEED, JUST as blame for tacit approval of a genocide and subsequent escape for the perpetrators can’t fall merely on “a few individuals,” it’s more than a few individuals who deserve credit for the opposite. For example, Jews were saved by the entire Catholic nation of Italy (in its sovereign pre-1943 form), including the commandant of the Ferramonti concentration camp, who “said his job was to protect the inmates, not kill them,” as UPI reported in 2003. Not surprisingly, Italian soldiers also intervened in the slaughter of Serbs by Croats and Axis-aligned Albanians in Kosovo.
Unfortunately, rather than distancing the Church from Aloysius Stepinac, the Vatican-centered newspaper L’Osservatore Romano responded that the “trial was a trial against the Catholic Church.” New York cardinal Francis Spellman outrageously named a parochial school in White Plains after Stepinac, and in 1952 Pius XII made him cardinal. Then, despite requests by the Simon Wiesenthal Center to hold off until the cardinal’s wartime role could be better assessed, Pope John Paul II beatified Stepinac in 1998.
Croatian groups (and some Croatian Jews) even appealed to Yad Vashem to give Stepinac the Righteous Gentile title, since he saved some Jews on condition of conversion. To which Yad Vashem had to reply in almost absurd terms: “Persons who assisted Jews but simultaneously collaborated or were linked with a fascist regime which took part in the Nazi-orchestrated persecution of Jews, may be disqualified for the Righteous title.”
The same should be said to Pope Benedict about his efforts to canonize Pius XII. Even as it denied Stepinac’s well known association with the Ustasha, Pius’s Vatican served as the conduit for smuggling the Ustashas out after the war. According to declassified US documents introduced in a recent class-action lawsuit against the Vatican Bank for laundering Ustasha loot – used to finance the Ustashas’ escapes and postwar sustenance – Pavelic was hidden in a Croatian Catholic monastery in Rome, where the office of the American Counterintelligence Corps on September 12, 1947, reported that “Pavelic’s contacts are so high, and his present position is so compromising to the Vatican, that any extradition of subject would deal a staggering blow to the Roman Catholic Church.” From Rome, Pavelic fled to Argentina, where he became a security adviser to Juan Peron, who issued thousands of visas to fleeing Ustashas.
Haaretz in 2006 reported that Msgr. Giovanni Battista Montini, Pius’s undersecretary of state and later Pope Paul VI, learned of “the investigation [that US Army counterintelligence agent William] Gowen’s unit was conducting. Montini complained about Gowen to his superiors and accused him of having violated the Vatican’s immunity by having entered church buildings, such as the Croatian college, and conducting searches there. The aim of the complaint was to interfere with the investigation.”
A May 2007 press release from plaintiffs’ attorney Jonathan Levy in the Vatican Bank case states, “To date, the Vatican attorneys… [are] insisting that the Vatican Bank’s money laundering scheme for Axis plunder violated no international law, since the Ustasha’s victims, mainly Orthodox Christian Serbs, were technically citizens of ‘Independent’ Croatia. The unrepentant tone of the Vatican bodes poorly for Pius XII and the current controversy involving his elevation to sainthood.”
THE VATICAN’S ongoing World War II identity crisis was evident last September when, after prodding from Croatian leaders, Zagreb Archbishop Josip Bozanic paid a 60-year-late visit to the Jasenovac memorial site, the first official representative of the Croatian Church to attend the annual memorial ceremony. Instead of an apology, Bozanic defended Stepinac and the Church, and used the long-awaited moment to also mourn the massacre of fleeing Nazis by partisans in Bleiburg, Austria – where an annual, Croatian government-sponsored commemoration ceremony is well attended by Catholic dignitaries. Bozanic was not reproached by the Vatican, which also doesn’t reproach the Croatian Church’s tolerance of the ubiquitous pro-Nazi symbolism in that country, which reemerged as Croatian “culture” in the early 1990s.
President Stjepan Mesic himself, who just left office after 10 years, had to recently ask the Vatican to pay closer attention to a bishop and military chaplain who regularly recites a violent poem that ends with the Ustasha saying: “For the fatherland, ready.”
This is the Balkan country that’s on the fast-track for EU membership. That’s where decades of evasion, deflection and cover-up get us, something that contributed to John Paul II’s own neglect of Jasenovac – the Balkans’ largest killing grounds – during his three trips to Croatia. It also leads us to last December’s spectacle of Pope Benedict having a private audience with Marko Perkovic, lead singer of the notorious clerical-fascist Croatian pop band Thompson, which regularly invokes “For the fatherland, ready” and had odes to concentration camps on earlier albums. Many Thompson fans engage in Nazi salutes, and nuns and politicians attend the “patriotic” concerts.
People bury history in order to repeat it. John Ranz, chairman of Buchenwald Survivors, in a 1996 letter to The New York Times, wrote: “Ironically, with US help, [1990s president] Franjo Tudjman was able to accomplish last year what the Nazis and their World War II collaborators could not, namely the uprooting of the entire Serbian Krajina population… The World War II fascist regime of Ante Pavelic is being officially rehabilitated in Croatia today. Streets and public buildings are being named after the architects of the Holocaust, Nazi-era currency revived, while the numbers and scope of the human carnage are being rewritten.”
Had history not been dumped into a mass grave, Western publics might have been allowed a fuller understanding of the Balkan wars, given that by 1991 it was “normal to kill Serbs,” as Zarko Puhovski, of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights, put it. When Croatia seceded from Yugoslavia in June 1991 – and the Vatican was the first to recognize it despite a UN resolution warning this could imperil a peaceful solution – survival dictated that the Serbs secede from the secessionists. “A few days after the Croatians declared war,” writes historian Israel, Pope John Paul II “sent a letter to the Yugoslav government demanding it not suppress the rebellion.” And so it was that in 1991 three Croatian soldiers saw “truckloads of bloated, stinking bodies, mothers and children blown up by bombs, and someone wearing a necklace made of ears,” Reuters reported on January 28, 1998.
And so it was that president Tudjman was a prominent guest at the inauguration of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in 1993, despite saying that “900,000 died, not 6 million,” and ranged from calling Jasenovac a “myth,” to blaming Jews for the killings there, to offering a formal apology for the 20,000 Jews killed there – but not for the several hundred thousand Serbs. And so it was that in 1995, as Croatian soldiers with Ustasha insignia cleansed the Krajina of Serbs – under US air cover – the Glina massacre survivor Ljuban Jednak once again fled for his life, dying a refugee in 1997.
And so it was that in 2005, when then Hague prosecutor Carla del Ponte learned that indicted 1990s war criminal Gen. Ante Gotovina was being sheltered in a Franciscan monastery in Croatia, the Roman Catholic lady found herself “‘extremely disappointed’ to encounter a wall of silence from the Vatican” which, she told the Daily Telegraph, “could probably pinpoint exactly which of Croatia’s 80 monasteries was sheltering him ‘in a few days.'”
And so it was that at the 2006 inauguration of the spruced-up Jasenovac memorial, the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Efraim Zuroff observed “the absence of any identification of the individuals responsible for the crimes described… I was amazed that none of the speakers mentioned… Croatia’s greatest achievement in facing its Ustasha past – the prosecution and conviction of Jasenovac commander Dinko Sakic… Could it be that the punishment of such a criminal… is so unpopular, even in today’s Croatia…?”
And so it was that Sakic was buried last July in full Nazi uniform, with a Father Vjekoslav Lasic – one of many who hold masses in honor of Ante Pavelic – officiating. “Independent State of Croatia is the foundation of today’s homeland of Croatia,” Lasic said. “Every honorable Croat is proud of the name Dinko Sakic.”
When no Croatian official of stature spoke out against the display, Zuroff called on the president to condemn the organizers and remind Croatian society that Sakic brought it shame, not pride.
In enshrining the Church’s divided World War II loyalties by canonizing the ambivalent pope at the time, the Church would be announcing to the world what it’s made of. But the Church is better than the sum of its nastier parts. Canonizing Pius XII would be unjust to Catholics who did more than he, and an insult to Catholics everywhere. Pius shouldn’t be demonized, but he shouldn’t be sanctified.

As pointed out on this website before: as soon as a majority of extremist Roman “Catholic” Supreme Court Justices have been put in (there are 5 Roman “Catholic” Supreme Justices versus 4 others out of a total of 9), THERE IS AN IMMEDIATE ATTACK ON THE CONSTITUTION OF THE USA. That’s why the Supreme Court has refused to hear the many lawsuits trying to get Mr. Obama to do what he should do AUTOMATICALLY, that is, make his birth certificate and all other documentation public, so we can see if he is a natural-born citizen, as the Constitution requires. (On the birth-certificate, we’re not talking about the “short-form” version which Mr. Obama posted on his website, which has limited detail, but we’re talking about the “long-form” version, or original, which is on file in Hawaii — this he has refused to show to the public and it shows where he was actually born.) Under the guise of being “conservative”, these pro-Roman stooges of the Supreme Court are ready to try and do what cannot easily be done by the democratic process, viz. take over America for the Vatican and the World Council of “Churches”. They hope to do this via Mr. Obama. It has been the Vatican’s policy to usurp power in the judicial system of America and interpret American rights out of existence, by twisting the clear meaning of US legislation. That’s why the courts increasingly are interpreting laws AGAINST BIBLE-FAITH, and the God-given rights protected by the Constitution. America was set up by the founding fathers as a bastion against the USURPING POWER OF THE STATE-“CHURCH” OF ENGLAND AND THE STATE-ROMAN-CATHOLIC-“CHURCH” OF EUROPE which crushed the people’s liberties in favor of their warped priesthoods. They can’t persuade people by their message, so they take over by deceit, especially through the courts and magistrates’ offices. Now it’s come to the USA.
UPDATE — Now 6 Roman “Catholic” Supremes to 3 others, with the acceptance of Sotomayor.
LATEST IMPORTANT UPDATE 18 April 2010:
The Supreme Court (in the form of Justice Thomas) ADMITS IT IS EVADING THE ISSUE OF MR. OBAMA”S ELIGIBILITY TO BE PRESIDENT. Read the transcript of a conversation between a Congressman (Serrano) and Supreme Justice Thomas below. The bit in bold is Justice Thomas’ admission (laugh, laugh) that the Supreme Court is EVADING IT. And why this strange admission??? Because THE REPUBLICAN RICH-GUYS KNOW THAT THEY ARE GOING TO GET HAMMERED AT THE NEXT ELECTION BY THE DISGRUNTLED DISSATISFIED BIBLE-BELIEVING VOTERS OF AMERICA WHO DON’T LIKE HOW THEY HAVE BEEN SOLD DOWN THE RIVER BY THESE CORRUPT REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS, WHO WON”T EVEN PEEP A SQUEAK ABOUT MR. OBAMA’S LACK OF ELIGIBILITY TO BE PRESIDENT. SO THE REPUBLICAN RICH GUYS ARE NOW PRESSURING THE SUPREME COURT TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE TO GET THEM OFF THE HOOK. Watch out for further updates.
(Rep. Serrano then jumped in and commented on Justice Thomas’ view on who can sit on the Supreme Court. The following exchange occurred:)
“Rep. Serrano: I’m glad to hear that you don’t think that there has to be a judge on the Court because I am not a judge. I have never been a judge.
Justice Thomas: And you don’t have to be born in the United States. So you never have to ask, answer that question (smiling).
Rep. Serrano: Oh, really?
Justice Thomas: Yeah (the audience laughing).
Rep. Serrano: So, you haven’t answered the one whether I can serve as (Justice Thomas interjecting) President but you answered this one (smiling).
Justice Thomas: We’re evading that one (laughter from Justice Thomas and the audience). We are giving you another option (more laughter from Justice Thomas and the audience).
Rep. Serrano: Thanks alot.
Justice Thomas: Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
Rep. Serrano: Mrs. Emerson.
