There is Something Rotten in the State of the Vatican.
So the circus has come to town, and the main attraction is an elderly man in his 80s dressed all in white. One of the headlines was “ Holy Father calls abuse scandal “repugnant” in speech to civil authorities in Ireland. I call it “Murder”, the Church loves to use the word “Abuse” because it not as harsh as the word “Rape” This is from -
A playbook which was prepared by the Roman Catholic Church, for all their Priests, on how to conceal the truth, these seven steps they must follow:
The main part of this circus was His Holiness, the title "His All Holiness" comes from the worldly royal authority, not from Scripture or the Apostles. The meeting of a few well intentioned Survivors at a well choreographed dance, all eight Survivors stooped to kiss the papal ring, and were star struck at the prospect of meeting the holiest man on earth. One Priest told me, “God most often works through secondary agents, including human beings. The Church especially, since it is “the Body of Christ” who is God incarnate.” The Pope, whose statements are not to be questioned for they come to him from God, according to the Vatican.
I, myself am not interested in customs and man-made traditions. The title "All Holiness" is not from Christ or the Apostles. And no amount of rationalisation will justify it's use. The title is blasphemous, idolatrous, and something only a narcissist or psychopath would apply to himself. No one who has fear of God, true piety and Christian humility would ever allow himself this title.
The eight Survivors were well rehearsed and selected the day before and told they must bow down and kiss the Pope’s ring. You see this ring is an idol of what the Vatican claims to be an image of the Apostle Peter, sitting in a boat. The gold ring also has the imprint of the name of the present Pope. When you bow down to kiss this gold ring, you break the Second Commandment and you accept and submit to the Apostolic succession of the Popes in Rome.
“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.
The definition of a hypocrite is a person who pretends to have certain beliefs, attitudes or feelings when they really do not. So lets look here at a hypocrite, Pope Francis, who says that he cares about the raped children, but he constantly allows his Priests to continue and even covers up for them. Pope Francis pretends to have virtues, moral and religious beliefs, even principles, but he clearly does not actually possess them. His statements when talking to Survivors in private in Dublin, Pope Francis referred to those who cover up child abuse in the Roman Catholic Church as “caca” the Spanish word for shit, but the official translator interpreted it as ‘filth. The eight Survivors told Pope Francis that an estimated 100,000 mothers were forcibly separated from their babies in Ireland. Pope Francis replied “As an act of healing “we ask you to make it clear to the elderly and dying community of natural mothers and adoptees, that there was no sin in the reunion.” I wonder how he, Pope Francis would say to my Mother, Nora, or my Brothers and Sisters, who were tortured, raped and died in the Religious run Institutions of Ireland, that they were confined to, having committed no crimes, marked by their unimaginable suffering and mine. Or for that matter the tens of thousands of other children and women, who were hunted down, humiliated, raped, bludgeoned to death, and carted off as slave labourers, many stolen and sold abroad. A few were murdered, many raped and dumped like thousands of other Mothers and their Children in unmarked mass graves, and cesspools, septic tanks at the back of Religious run Institutions in Ireland.
But the Irish Church’s crimes had been far worse, in all the Religious run Institutions, and the suffering of those that survived such Institutions was and is immense. Will the Silence be ever lifted, the untold stories of thousands of children, raped during their time in the Industrial Schools. The three Christian Brothers in my Industrial School who held down a eleven year old boy as they took turns raping and sodomising him. I later cleaned up after them and offered what comfort I could, to the boy, I was only twelve, the same thing happened to me the year before. We didn't speak about what had happened, no boy talked about such things, if he did he would be beaten almost to death, and in a few case were beaten to death, it was all part of our daily lives. My psychiatrist wanted to help me to heal and recover from my darkest secrets. Sadly no male wants to talk about sexual violence on themselves, especially those boys, now men from the Industrial Schools. In all cases the men will take their shameful secrets, their own brutal rapes, never to share to their worthless graves.
It was telling that there was no mention by the Pope of the 1,800 plus Babies and Children disposed of in a septic tank in Tuam, County Galway. The Pope claims he knew nothing about that, how sad, another cover up by the Irish Catholic church, or the infallible Pope is fallible. Nor was their no mention, of Ireland’s “notorious Mother And Baby Homes where thousands of babies and children and their mothers died, from beatings, torture, murder, rape, even experimented on, as well as thousands of their Mothers”. All buried in mass cesspools at the back of these Religious Institutions. Wasn’t it also very grand of Pope Francis to tell Mothers now after all those years, the Mothers of the Mother And Baby Homes, whose children were stolen and sold as sex slaves, “that there was no sin in now looking for their children.” One Survivor said the Pope sounded “genuinely shocked to hear about the 12,000 babies who died from neglect and the other 60,000 banished babies and the tens of thousands of babies murdered during the vaccine trials. According to the Survivors, the Pope lifted his hands to his head in shock”. But shocked he wasn’t, he was shocked because he knew the game was up, he asked himself, that religion does this to children and mothers, he momentarily forgot, maybe a touch of dementia after all he is over 81 years old, and he had to remind himself that he is the current head of that cult.
The eight Survivors were absolutely delighted with the meeting as each received a medal from the Pope with an image of St Patrick on it, how very nice, a (f…ing) tin medal of a fake Saint, that was blessed by the Pope as was the Survivors, their blessing would now heal all their pains, they were told by a witness, an Italian Priest, but first he told them, they must go to confession.
The Pope said the failure of the church authorities to deal with a long history of the abuse of children in their care – “these repellent crimes” – was a source of “pain and shame”. How ironic of Pope Francis speaking about failure to deal with the abuse of children in our care, we now have world headlines-“Vatican Official Claims Pope Francis Knew Of rape allegation against an American Cardinal” The American Cardinal, Theodore McCarrick of Washington, raped both his nephew for over twenty years and dozens of young seminarians under his care. For his punishment of raping of dozens of young men and his nine year old nephew, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was told by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009, “to serve a lifetime of penance and prayer, and to no longer celebrate Mass in public or travel.”
If the world headlines are true, or remotely true, it’s very explosive-The sex -abuse scandal has come for the Pope Francis- A letter calling for his resignation shows how serious his crisis of credibility has become. Now here is what Pope Francis says—-
"I won’t say a word about it’:
Are you serious Pope Francis!!, the Pope’s sudden silence on abuse claim letter is an outrage- The Vatican Official, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano says, “Pope Francis knew of sexual misconduct allegations against Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, since 2009.” Pope Francis accepted McCarrick’s resignation as Cardinal only last month, (July 2018) after a US church investigation determined that an accusation he had sexually raped a minor was very credible. Since then, another man has come forward to say Cardinal McCarrick began raping him starting when he was 11years old, and also several dozen young former seminarian students have said Cardinal McCarrick abused and sexually raped them when they were in the seminary, training as Priests. Cardinal McCarrick forcing the young seminarian students into his bed at the college, were he raped them. But wait a minute Pope Benedict XVI sanctioned Cardinal McCarrick in 2009. Which means the Vatican knew since 2009, that is ten years ago.
So something strange and wonderful happened as the mass began in the phoenix park Dublin, the conclave of gossiping Bishops, of 9 Cardinals, 100 Bishops with 2,600 priests. They could see from their high altar, the horror as they looked out collectively that the 500,000 crowd of people expected was non existent. The vast park was sparsely crowded. This revealed their desperation, and at times even panic, in frantic manoeuvring to leave, to hide. The Bishops paced around the high altar in a frenetic, manic state of stasis, the shock of so few attendees at their circus was to much to behold. This panic at the sparsely populated mass was an earthquake for the Roman Catholic Church.
Now the numbers, so according to the Irish Police, under 130,000 attended the Pope’s Mass in the Park in Dublin. A break down in the numbers is even worse, over 7,000 were Police and trainee Police;- 2,500 Fire officers, and Ambulance personal on standby;-12,000 were the military on standby;- 20,000 Park Stewards;- Over 18,000 were from Religious Orders who traveled from around the world to attend. 3,000 were the world’s press;- 9 Cardinals, 100 Bishops with 2,600 priests and deacons distributing Holy Communion. Irish Government Officials and International Officials, 1,500;- 25,000 were also from Catholic Schools, like choirs, and their parents. So subtract 91,000 in Total and you have maybe 39,009 who attended the Mass a total disaster for the Roman Catholic Church. Owen Felix O’Neill
The Complicit Irish Police (An Garda Síochána).
It is only with a scrupulously honest debate about our past that we can talk about our future in a very thorough way. We need a historical colloquium on examining the role between the Irish Catholic Church and the complicit Irish Police (An Garda Síochána). We also need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, with Survivors who are identified as victims of gross human rights’ violations by the Irish Catholic Church being invited to give statements about their experiences, and with the hearings open to the public. The perpetrators of violence should also give testimony and be denied requests for amnesty from both civil and criminal prosecution. All the Irish Catholic Church agencies and the Irish Police agencies must open their archives to an inter-disciplinary team of renowned researchers. Both the Irish Catholic Church and the Irish Police should immediately stop destroying all archives with their incriminating documents, and give a full account of those which have already been destroyed and who ordered the destruction.
For a long time, the Irish Police denied its past collaboration with the Irish Catholic Church - a past in which they gave full immunity -in both written and verbal form - and gave free rein to the worse atrocities committed by the Irish Catholic Church in their Religious-run Institutions.
There is a doctrine of international law that allows an accused to avoid prosecution for criminal offences by granting immunity. There are two types of immunity. The first is Immunity ratione materiae or functional immunity, which can be granted to people who perform certain functions of state. The second is personal immunity, or immunity ratione personae. This was an immunity granted to certain Church Officials because of the Holy Office they held, rather than in relation to the act they committed. Any Irish Cleric who, in performance of his Church duty committed a criminal offence, was immune from prosecution. This was the secret agreement between the Irish Catholic Church and the Irish Police and rubber - stamped by the elected and inept Irish Government. The virtually ineffective Irish Institution of State had considerable de jure power but little de facto power, because all the levers of power were held by the Irish Catholic Church. The incompetent Irish Government rarely (or never) disagreed with the more powerful organ of the Irish Catholic Church, but chose instead to lockstep with it and adhere to and emulate its actions.
The immunity, given by the Irish Police and applied to the acts of individuals, is an attribute of state, and it is based on the mutual respect they had with the Irish Catholic Church in their Religious-run Institutions. It is a fact that the incapable Irish State regularly asserts that every Roman Catholic Church official acting in a Church capacity was, and is, immune from any form of state prosecution..Though in recent years a few token clerics have been prosecuted through the Irish Courts, and given laughable sentences in relation to their crimes, and because they were clerics. And only because of the Irish public outcry when it for example became know that one Priest, the prolific Fr. Brendan Smyth had raped over 400 plus boys across Ireland in a raping spree for over 40 years, moved from parish to parish with the blessings and help of the Catholic Bishops who knew about all the children he raped. Another Priest, Seán Fortune of Wexford, and the specific charge that he was accused of was- the homosexual rape and sexual molestation against 29 different boys. He faced 66 charges, Father Seán Fortune was never tried, and committed suicide before any charges were proved against him. These are just two of the many Priests that the Irish Catholic Church couldn’t put the fix in for, there was a sigh of relief in Church quarters with the timely death of Father Seán Fortune. The other few thousand Clerics, who were in the same boat as Smith and Fortune have got away with their crimes against Children, with again the active support and backing of the Irish Catholic Church and its Bishops.
The Constitution of Ireland at one time recognised the special position of the Roman Catholic Church, so it was written into our very own Constitution - by themselves. An air of triumph reigned in the highest echelon of the Irish Catholic Church, with their belief that their Christian doctrine was, and is, far superior to all others and indicated their pejorative view of the Irish Constitution. Another secret agreement of Personal Immunity was conferred on the leaders of the Irish Catholic Church. It was immunity given by the civil, criminal, and administrative jurisdictions in Ireland to all senior Irish Church Officials holding a particular office. Under this immunity, the private residence, papers, correspondence, and property of a Church official would enjoy personal immunities which were inviolable. This is what the Irish Police (An Garda Síochána) upheld and knew, and it is why when the worst atrocities were being perpetrated by the Religious-run Institutions, the Irish Catholic Church knew they didn’t have to worry; their secret agreements held firm as the conniving Irish State was powerless to proceed against the might and power of the Irish Catholic Church.
While proselytising Irish politicians in Ireland in recent years assumed responsibility for the Irish Catholic Church’s crimes, other pillars of Irish Society have been slower to confront their past. We must remember that no line can, or should, be drawn under the Irish Catholic Church’s monstrosities for which the Irish police force of the time were partly responsible. During the Irish Catholic Church’s reign, An Garda Síochána played a prominent role in the rounding up of women, girls and helpless children in their thousands. None had committed any crimes, but crimes were about to be committed against them: rapes, torture, beatings and death.
In Catholic Ireland the chauvinistic Irish Police were allowed to arrest people on suspicion that they were about to do wrong, such as committing the sin of holding hands with your lover, kissing, dancing, putting on makeup, not covering your hair in church, talking in church, or not showing deference to the jingoistic Catholic Clergy by doffing your hat or bowing your head. This gave both the Irish Catholic Church and the Irish Police huge powers. All local police stations throughout Ireland had to draw up a list of people in their locality who might be suspected of being enemies of the Irish Catholic Church. Once compiled, this list was given to the local Parish Priest, who in turn sent a copy to the area’s Bishop and then up through the hierarchy which had the power to do as it liked. This is how hundreds of thousands of women and children were removed from their communities and locked away into the hellholes that were the Religious-run Institutions.
The Institutions were deliberately barbaric, and were run by Clerics who could disguise their violent nature by simply wearing religious dress. As well as the daily flogging and torture of women and children, the Religious-run Institutions were very basic and sparse. The provision of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, towels, combs and toilet paper was unheard of. Food and drink were of an extremely low standard and there was never enough.
The pugnacious Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid, was one of the most feared men in Ireland running, as he did, both the Irish Catholic Church and the ineffectual Irish Government with ruthless efficiency and with fanatical devotion to both the Irish Catholic Church and Rome. He had the direct help of the Irish Police (An Garda Síochána), which in its earlier years was headed by the renowned fascist Eoin O’Duffy, the Garda Commissioner (Irish Police Chief), and his gang (Blue-shirts) which was strongly supported by the Irish Catholic Church. O'Duffy advocated fascist policies and during the Second World War held negotiations with politicians in Nazi Germany about the possibility of persuading the Irish Republican Army to undertake a policy of sabotage against Britain. O'Duffy helped establish the Fine Gael Party, which is one of the main political parties in Ireland today.
Because of the secret agreements with both the Irish Government and the Irish Police (An Garda Síochána), the Irish Catholic Church was free from any review by the law courts of Ireland. This effectively meant that the Irish Catholic Church became a law unto itself, and remember this - the Irish Catholic Church appointed every sitting Judge in the land. Thus it was that the Irish Catholic Church became justifiably feared by almost every member of Irish Society.
Is it not time now for the Irish Police to be honest and accountable, to open up their secret archives to a wider Irish public and to talk about their role in enabling the Irish Catholic Church. We need the reconstruction of the Irish court system as an important first step in this direction. Unfortunately, many perpetrators - the people who carried out harmful, shameful and illegal criminal acts and their enablers in the era of criminality - have never been tried or punished for the chronicle of abuse, rape, murder and terror.
The Roman Catholic Church of Ireland ordered, organised and condoned a substantial number of heinous crimes. The most notable of these took place in the Religious-run Institutions in which hundreds of thousands of our fellow Irish citizens were systematically raped, tortured and murdered or died from their abuse and mistreatment. The true number of victims may never be known since much of the evidence was deliberately destroyed by both the Irish Catholic Church and the Irish Police in a cynical attempt to conceal and erase evidence of their outrageously evil crimes.

I’m often asked (as recently as a few days ago), “Why didn’t the local population help when women and girls were dragged away from their families and communities and shoved away into the nearest Magdalene Laundry?”. It’s a fair question, but it doesn’t have an easy answer. I only have to think of my own mother and sisters and the manner in which they were shut away in Magdalene Laundries where they were to rot and die. I have always said that it is very important to remember and revisit the past, so we can have a better understanding of the future.
The extent of the Irish population’s involvement in turning-in their own women - daughters, mothers, aunts, sisters - because they were pregnant (or the family just wanted to get rid of them for some other reason) will be a shock to many, but not to any of the victims who survive to this day. Many women and girls were betrayed by their nearest and dearest and immediate family as well as by their Irish neighbours. Many rural parishes took part in the hunt for imaginary Jezebels, the name associated with fallen or abandoned women and used by the Irish Catholic Church as a synonym for a sexually promiscuous woman and as an excuse for controlling women. Even the act of dressing up in her finery and putting on makeup could lead to a woman or girl being called a painted woman or prostitute.
A whole apparatus was set up to hunt down these women and girls.The hunt was normally fronted by the local parish priest, who supervised and conducted nighttime watches, using local informers and even the local police if necessary, as well as a few well-intentioned gossipy women and local righteous men. These hyenas were actively and willingly involved in pulling these women and girls out of their own communities., They were simply seized, roughed up and delivered to the nearest Magdalene Laundry. The local people who participated in this orgy of betrayal volunteered willingly and without coercion, although many were induced with the promise of free drink and sweets. Some participated in the scheme out of blind obedience or job ambition and in need of a reference from the local parish priest.
Various other reasons were also at play, including Catholic ideological schooling, local peer pressure, getting rid of a local scandal such as an unwanted baby being born to a woman or girl out of wedlock and, for some, the pure pleasure of sadism and personal gain was sufficient incentive. Additionally, the being awarded with a mention of honour at Mass the following Sunday was surely of supreme importance to many. There is no doubt that the great majority of women and girls who ended up in the Magdalene Laundries of Ireland perished as a consequence of local betrayal.
The local population’s involvement in turning over these women and girls who sought their help is something that is rarely discussed today, but needs to be talked about. When the women and girls disappeared from their local communities -communities in which they grew up, went to school, played with their friends, and lived with their extended families - their disappearance was only ever spoken of in hushed tones. Sadly these women and girls would rarely, if ever, see their families or communities again.
We here in Ireland badly need an honest debate and a prolonged bout of real soul-searching about the role that the local population (including the local police and other professionals), had in sending their daughters, mothers, aunts, and sisters to the Magdalene Laundries of Ireland. Over the life of the Magdalene Laundries, well over 100,000 girls and women (who had committed no crime) were enslaved in a life of imprisonment with punitive labour and brutal hardship in these religious-run workhouses.
Many of the girls and women would die from overwork in this involuntary servitude and many died from beatings inflicted by their religious jailers. Then, to compound the horror, their bodies were unceremoniously dumped into mass disposal sites on the religious laundry grounds. The few ‘lucky’ ones who survived would go on to lead wretched lives burdened with the guilt of being outcasts from their own families, local communities and friends.
Historical truth is not always pleasant, and those who acted despicably and inhumanely should be utterly condemned. Yet I hear to this day sentiments such as, “Let bygones be bygones”, expressing a sense that we should forgive and forget unpleasant things that happened in the past.. I wish it was so easy. Was it not the Spanish philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist George Santayana who said “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Or, as the American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist and author Carl Sagan once famously put it, “You have to know the past to understand the present.”
The Irish Catholic Church authorities turned Magdalene Laundries into a profitable industry, in pursuit of income from their unpaid slave labour. This put pressure on local parishes to find and provide ever more women and girls to run their labour camps. Religious servitude included hard labour and was a standard feature in all Magdalene Laundries. Religious penal servitude was never abolished in Ireland but penal servitude itself was abolished in Ireland by section 11(1) of the Criminal Law Act, 1997. It was finally expunged from the Constitution of Ireland by a referendum in 2001, but never by the Irish Catholic Church.
Any unmarried woman’s life was perceived as worthless by most Irish Catholic Clerics and this was a prejudice fostered by the teachings of the Irish Catholic Church. Irish people lived in a climate in which hate would be allowed and, indeed, encouraged, to grow. The deadly efficiency of this system of slavery operated by the Irish Catholic Church depended on the enthusiasm and willingness of local informers to be participants while the local parish priests methodically carried out their duties, collecting and exterminating undesirable women and girls, principally from the rural areas of Ireland.
I have always had the impression that there was a sense among Irish Catholic Church officials that they lived and worked in a kind of separate environment in which even the laws of the land did not apply to them. How else to explain their horrendous behaviour toward their Victims and Survivors; the rape, torture and murder of women and children, and then the disposal of their remains into mass graves and septic tanks at the back of their Religious-run Institutions.
Women outside the control of men (Priests) and the Irish Catholic Church were targeted because they were sexualised and literally demonised by the Catholic Church. Another teaching of the Catholic Church was that women were “weak.” and inferior to their male counterparts. All of this woman-hating rhetoric was, of course, holy and wholesome and good, because the Catholic religion deemed it so. The Catholic Church believed women to be particularly susceptible to evil and thus women had to be exceptionally pious and saintly, and were always to be kept tightly controlled. Nuns themselves believed this to be true. Extraordinary violence was carried out in Christ’s name, with Christian doctrine often a mere excuse for murder and pillage by a group of cultish, closeted, sex cannibals passing themselves of as Priests. It would appear that it was the mandated duty of Irish Catholic Clerics and the wider Catholic Church at the time to drown goodness with an abundance of profoundly immoral and scandalous corruption. Owen Felix O’Neill
Let us examine the Irish Catholic Church’s enablers and their vulgarisation of various modern philosophers and the distinguished academics who supported the Irish Catholic Church and their brutal reign in Ireland. Many academics carried overtones of saintliness combined with the suggestion of profound learning, when really they had dubious degrees and ennobled themselves with bullshit. John Charles McQuaid, Primate of Ireland and Archbishop of Dublin between December 1940 and January 1972, even selected the editors of every newspaper in Ireland. McQuaid, who once said that brutality is respectful, took all the ingredients of a frightened and ignorant Ireland, mixed old superstitions with Christian superstitions from his cabinet of bigotry and loathing, combined them in his private transmutation lab and turned the idiosyncratic Irish mixture into a honeyed elixir that the Irish masses willingly drank. The Irish Catholic Church learned to hate democracy because, as Nietzsche said, it “encouraged mediocrity.” The Irish Catholic Church wanted a uniquely Catholic Theocratic State, a form of civil government of which God himself (McQuaid), would be recognised as the head. Fear is absolutely indispensable in the founding of a new power and that new power was to be The Irish Catholic Theocratic State - an ecclesiocracy in which Priests ruled in the name of Jesus Christ.
For close on eighty years Ireland had such an ecclesiocracy in which the Catholic Bishops were the temporal rulers. The Irish State used the administrative hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church for its own administration, with the administrators being the Clergy who were, of course, also subordinate to the religious hierarchy. The Irish Clerics were an Oligarchy of Ireland, a power structure in which real power rested with a small number of Priests and which involved the rule of the many by the few, some of whom were anointed under claim of divine commission. Throughout history, oligarchies have always been tyrannical, relying on the existence of absolute public obedience and oppression. As can now be seen from recently uncovered scandals, the Irish Catholic Church was no different in that respect.
The Irish Catholic Church used their skills for their own benefit, recruiting enablers and volunteers to select the civil servants who would perform judicial, executive, and administrative functions. They also controlled every lever of power in the budding Irish State including the election of parliamentary representatives (T.Ds.), who, once elected, abrogated their legal responsibilities and, instead kowtowed to the Irish Bishops. The Irish Bishops, in effect, appointed all Irish government positions including judges, ambassadors and other diplomatic posts. and, of course, all the doctors in their Church-run hospitals. They also appointed all the teachers and academics at the schools, colleges and universities of which 99% were controlled by the Irish Catholic Church. They also controlled all media outlets, including the “State-run” broadcasting service, managed the banning of “unsuitable” books, plays, movies and television, exiled famous Irish writers and prohibited visits by international writers. De facto, they controlled the words and thoughts of the Irish people. With no opposition, they went about raping, torturing and murdering women and children in their thousands while their enablers looked the other way.
In this ecclesiocracy of Ireland, there was the situation where the Irish Catholic Church leaders assumed a leading role in running the Irish State affairs, and McQuaid and his Clerics felt they were divinely sanctioned and blessed with divine authority to do so. Just as monarchs of old believed in the divine right of Kings, McQuaid and his henchmen believed they had God's mandate to rule and, as McQuaid further asserted, as Archbishop he was not subject to any earthly authority, deriving the right to rule directly from the will of a Higher Being and thus not subject to the will of his people. This assertion implies that only God can judge an unjust Archbishop and that any attempt to depose, dethrone or restrict his powers would run contrary to the will of Almighty God and would constitute a sacrilegious act. Like an Emperor of Rome, McQuaid maintained that his office and rule was not only divinely approved but also constitutional. The duly elected Government of Ireland shamefully conceded, prostrated itself before him and his Clerics, and accepted his divine right to rule.
[The Roman Catholic Church’s notion of a divine right of Kings is traced to a story found in Samuel 1, where the prophet Samuel anoints Saul and then David as Messiah or King over the Land of Israel. The anointing is such that the monarch became inviolable, so that even when Saul sought to kill David, David would not raise his hand to defend himself against him because "He was the Lord's anointed".]
Archbishop McQuaid was often heard to say in Latin, “Dieu et mon droit”-“God and my right” - he wanted his followers to believe that he was the Father of the Irish State. McQuaid also said that Archbishops are not only God's lieutenants upon earth and sit upon God's throne, and, even by God himself, they are called gods. (The reference to "God's lieutenants" is apparently a reference to the text in Romans 13 where Paul refers to "God's ministers".)
Irish Catholic Priests, en bloc, raped children, marking them as their territory and using their position in God’s light as an excuse to rob babies of their irretrievable innocence. For many decades, no matter how bad it got, the Irish Catholic Church’s enablers also covered it up, in order to avoid prosecution and protect the Church. There is now no longer any question in anyone’s mind that the Irish Catholic Church is a criminal cabal, hiding behind and using religion to commit their most evil deeds of raping, torturing, and even murdering innocent boys and girls and being protected by a network of religious fanatics. We wouldn’t tolerate this behaviour in any other organisation in the world, and yet we allow it to happen in the Cabal Ministry known as the Irish Catholic Church - an organisation that is irreligious, secretive, murderous, evil, treacherous, sadistic, compassionless, and filled with psychopaths.
The genetic make-up of these clerics is dramatically different from the rest of us. They completely lack compassion and empathy; they exude glibness and superficial charm under many false fronts; they are ruthless, self-centred sociopaths wrapped in lies. These are their genetic traits. Many of them are also sadistic child rapists who engage in satanic rituals in which children are raped, tortured and murdered. Let’s be honest here: the Roman Catholic Church is a worldwide organisation filled with mind-manipulators and pedophiles. These Christian Criminals are notorious for their hypocrisy, their disdain for the truth, their complete lack of integrity, and their utter lack of compassion or concern for anybody or anything but themselves. They are nothing short of presumptuous, repugnant, and reprehensible. They suffer from general poverty, from moral depravity and insanity and truly exhibit the symptoms of Dissociative Personality Disorder in that they seem to possess no sense of ethics pertaining to the rights of others, especially children.
Priests and Nuns are born fabulists, with an imagination unfettered by the laws of logic and probability, they are emotionally shallow and show a lack of guilt even to this very day as, for example, the Nuns who don’t see a problem with having flushed thousands of babies down a sluice into a septic tank in their Mother and Baby Homes and Convents. These Nuns were (and are) psychopaths and notorious for their lack of fear. Why else would they dispose of babies in this fashion? The well- honed tools of the Catholic Church range from untruthfulness and insincerity, to outright pathological lying. It is now a well known fact, accepted world-wide, that Priests are more likely to be pedophiles than any other group. Why do we, as a society, condone pedophilia in the Irish Catholic Church and accept the systematic cover-ups of child rape, murder and other abuse?
The Roman Catholic Church has been involved in the organised enabling of rape and murder of children for over 2,000 years. The perspectives of the Roman Catholic Church are so similar because the truth is so evident. The raping of children always starts in the local parish but runs all the way up to the very top, even to the Pope. If people continue to support and give money to the Catholic Church, then they are complicit in the continued ritualistic and systematic rape of children, thus enabling the Catholic Church in its many crimes. Owen Felix O’Neill
A Truth revealed, is slowing coming to light, the story of the tens of thousands of babies stolen at birth and sold abroad by the Irish Catholic Church. This illegal sale through Irish Catholic Adoptive Agencies was and is a scandal. Mothers to this day continue to search for their disappeared children. In the depravity that marked the period, young unwed mothers were enslaved or killed after giving birth and their babies were stolen and handed over to Irish Catholic Church Adoptive Agencies to raise. In continued crimes committed by the powerful Irish Catholic Church, it's impossible to imagine something more evil than this. The Irish Catholic Church falsifying names and births on birth certificates, and openly helping American families to adopt babies, stolen from their doomed unwed mothers, back in Ireland. Nobody in the Irish Catholic Church has been charged with kidnapping and falsifying official documents. Many unwed mothers, to this day carry two weights, called “Shame” and “Guilt”, and blamed themselves for the loss of their babies. We here in Ireland need to deal and uncover the true crimes of the past, that more than 65,000 babies were stolen during the dictatorship of the Irish Catholic Church in Ireland alone, and to many experts that figure is much higher, the theft of babies was systematic in all Irish Mother and Baby Homes.
We need the Irish Government to immediately thrown their support behind the effort to uncover the crimes of the past, the theft and illegal sale of Irish babies from over 200 Mother and Baby Homes and religious Orphanages in Ireland. "We do not have time to keep waiting, for promises of Irish Government help, many mothers are getting older by the day, and dying off, emotionally mutilated by the lies of the Irish Catholic Church and never knowing what became of their stolen babies, sold to who and where”. Some babies, as many as 650, were murdered or died in transit, an unwed mother who had her baby stolen or murdered cannot ever live as before, her life is truly over.
Ireland must not forget their past, some of the unwed mothers died in suspicious circumstances giving birth in the Irish Mother and Baby Homes. Their family were never informed, but the baby was removed immediately and sold on. Many more unwed mothers were told by the Nuns, that ran the Mother and Baby Homes that their babies died at birth, but in reality the baby was simply stolen. A few mothers many years later or even decades later, learnt, that the baby they had been told by the cruel Nuns, had died at birth, was a lie and in fact her baby did not died at birth, but was sold by the Nuns into America.
Many Irish babies that were adopted in America, learnt years later or realise that the family who raised them was a participant in the sale of illegal babies, and that their adoptive parents bought them, like slabs of beef from Irish Catholic Agencies, operating in both Ireland and the United States of America. Their true mothers are still alive somewhere in Ireland, to this day, the adoptees feel pain, anger, great sadness, and rage at the lies, the loss, and the church. Many adoptees on learning the truth of their background, take a DNA test, with many legally change their name, once their mother’s are found. Many want their passports and ID Cards with their true family name.
The waiting stolen babies were placed in a temporary Mother and Baby Home, or housed with a family who worked for the Irish Catholic Church, or Irish Catholic Agencies. Once in the temporary Mother and Baby Home, all the stolen babies went through special "quality selection" for a detailed examination, combined with psychological tests and medical examinations made by doctors friendly to the Irish Catholic Church, or the Irish Catholic Agencies. The doctors would note the child's "racial value" and would determine the baby’s body proportions, eye colour, hair colour, and any heath problems, such as tuberculosis or traveller characteristics of the Irish Travelling community, other characteristics to include identified birthmarks, many stolen babies were also rejected if the birthmark was too big. These medical exams carried out by Irish Doctors determined the fate of the baby, whether the baby would be sent to back or to another Mother and Baby Home or experience other consequences. For example, after forcibly taking a child away from their unwed mothers, all “medical exams" were performed in secret.
The Irish Catholic Church knew that the eye colour and the hair colour of the stolen baby was important and some stolen babies commanded more money, if say they had an accommodation of blond hair, blue eyes, or red hair and green eyes. Baby boys also commanded more premium than girls. Once the baby was selected, the baby was sent to special homes to await the sale and transfer of monies into the Irish Catholic Church coffers. In the meantime, the stolen baby’s name and birth was altered to new names and birthday, normally to the new adoptive parents name, and sometimes at the request of the new parents, the birthday would be altered too.The new parents who were adopting a Irish stolen baby would be informed that the mother had died at birth even if they were not. In some cases, the efforts were so successful that the children lived and died believing themselves to be the children of their new parents. Some very young children, aged between two and eight, were sent to special Irish homes, and fattened up so to speak, these illegitimate children were deemed more valuable, there, they would be observed for a period of time before finally been sold for higher sums of money. The Irish Catholic Church were masters in devising and forging new Irish names and new birth certificates to hide the stolen baby’s pasts. The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs were willing enablers of the Irish Catholic Church, and were used to issue new passports for the stolen babies, on the instructions of the Irish Catholic Church.
Some new parents were informed that the baby’'s new birth certificates had been falsified, but were reassured by the Irish Catholic Church that there would never be a problem, as any and all documents had ben destroyed. The thousands of stolen Irish babies sold into America were robbed of their Irish heritage, many were maltreated by their adoptive parents. Some adoptive parents demanded adoption certificates, such records were forged for them by the Irish Catholic Church. Adopting stolen Irish Babies was a huge business, involving hundreds of millions of Irish pounds that flowed freely into Irish Catholic Church coffers, on a daily basis.
Infants and Children were often heard every night crying, a sad lament throughout the entire nights. Babies from several months old, to the older children normally 5 or 6 years old who would cry out for their mothers, inconsolably pain, calling for their mothers. These older children’s job was to feed and keep quiet the infants, screaming away for their mothers. Always through tears, many of the older children could be heard begging with the dispassionate Nuns with a passionate expression of grief and sorrow, asking the passionless Nuns for food, for water, for a toilet, for a simple act of humility, Please Sister help me, I’m thirsty, I’m hungry, I’m tired, only to fall on deaf ears. Their simple pleas for mercy and help always fell on deaf ears.
I could never as a seven year old child, ever describe the joy of the child when they saw their mothers, coming for a few minutes visit, normally the mother would sneak into the dormitory, it was heart wrenching, she would be seen picking up the child and breastfeeding the baby, by the cot with whatever nourishment she could offer, and the screaming of deranged Nuns with sticks beating them away and back to their end of the Convent. Also the new mother knew instinctively where her child was in the dormitory of a hundred baby cots, and without conscious thought picked her child up to hold to her breast, shower with kisses and hug.
Watching the new Mother with her child was love in motion, the baby would cry softly at the touch of its Mother caressing hands, an intimacy of pure joy and love.The child’s little hands embraced its Mother’s neck, gently pulling at her hair, the silent kisses of both of them, floats and echoes throughout their shared pain and sadness. From the child’s over excited heart, a murmur, a whisper, a deep sigh, flows out. The hungry child’s starving mouth, grasps the mother’s bare breast with both hands, the child’s bare head is wet from the flood of tears, falling like raindrops, each teardrop, a love shared, each tear a painful reminder of a Mother’s loss, each moment a memory, etched in a ripple of future memories, as the Mother is violently ripped away from her child, her world, her baby.
The Child soon, exhausted by Mother’s great sadness and tears, falls fitfully asleep, Mother disappears into howling pain, as she is dragged screaming from her baby’s cot. At each cot, each Mother cries as she is pulled and beaten away by the cruel and despicable Nuns. A chorus of distressful pleads heard nightly from grieving mothers “Please Sister”, “Please Sister,” a few moments!, a few minutes!, just a moment in God’s name!, my baby!, my child!. “Please Sister,” look at its bare heart? its suffering eyes!!, its tears!!, “Please Sister”, grieving Mothers wail, convulsive gasps of sobs, pleading, “let me take care of my baby, Sister please?, my child!, my love!, other babies immediately begin to wail. But the harden hearts of the unscrupulous Nuns hardens, a knowing smile, lights their darkened faces, by morning many of the babies would be missing, stolen by the child snatchers, reprehensible Nuns, who would relish in telling grieving mothers that their baby died during the night, and is now in hell for eternity for the sins committed by you, you unwed whores!, your not mothers!, a spiteful Nun would spit out with venom. There would be no mystery of the babies disappearance, but instead kidnapped by the ruthless Irish Catholic Church and a collaborating Irish Government, handed over to wealthy families in America for illegal adoptions, domestic chores and a life of horrendous abuse.
Another lifetime of searching as future adults, lost, as they try to piece together their stolen pasts. The reprehensible Nuns would then erased the very existence of the stolen babies from their records once the baby was sold. The unwed mothers, physically exhausted and malnourished were devoured within the harsh Magdalene Laundry Gulags as life slaves to their new slave masters, the insufferable Nuns. Magdalene Laundry Gulags run by the Irish Catholic Church were an integral part of Catholic Ireland between the years 1926 to 1996. Magdalene Laundries were a "camp" where unwed women and their children were imprisoned for being born out of Catholic Church wedlock, such as been unmarried. The conditions in these Magdalene Laundries were very harsh, much rougher then any Irish Prison at the time. Women imprisoned in the Magdalene Laundry Gulags were often forced to work 14 to 18 hours a day, for no pay, and very little food, as well as been neglected and abused daily. The horrendous true stories of the notorious Magdalene Laundry Gulags are extremely disturbing and often heartbreaking.
The stories of life in these Irish Magdalene Laundry Gulags and all the brutality within is unbelievable. It will never be understood how such atrocious acts could be acted upon other human beings, particularly by the Irish Catholic Church. The idea that these acts of cruelty were organised makes it that much more unbelievable. How could so many Religious People gather together, justify and make decisions on the mistreatment, rape, beatings, torture, the selling of stolen babies and even murder itself, of tens of thousands of vulnerable women and their children. How could a Nun, a Priest, a Religious Brother go home to their Convents, their Monasteries, their Religious Houses, and pray in their Churches, after a day at work at a Magdalene Laundry? an Industrial School, or an Orphanage. How could they not see that what they were doing was wrong, beyond wrong, simply evil. !
