Castration and the Catholic Church
The Philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche said- Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.
In 1599, Pope Clement VIII gave his blessing for castrated young boy's to sing in the Catholic Church. Castration of young boys went on unabated for the next 300 years, until Pope Leo XIII in 1878 finally put a stop it.
The Dutch Roman Catholic Church 'castrated at least 10 boys’ who were surgically castrated "to get rid of homosexuality" while in the care of the Dutch Roman Catholic Church in the 1950s. According to many published reports. (link below)
Which bring me to this, that the surgical removal of testicles was regarded as a treatment for homosexuality in Ireland prior to the 1970s. Was known and approved of with the blessing of the Irish Catholic Church. Dozen of Irish boys were surgically castrated "to get rid of homosexuality" while in the care of the Irish Catholic Church. These boys were raped by Clerics, and when the frightened boys reported their rapes to other Clerics, or others, like their Parents, they, the boys were accused of both been liars and deviants, (homosexuals). Many of the boys who made the accusations in the Religious run Institutions were transferred to selected Lunatic Asylums, like The Central Mental Hospital, (Central Criminal Lunatic Asylum) in Dundrum in Dublin or similar mental institutions in the Irish Republic. There is evidence that Irish Government Inspectors were aware that young boys were being castrated while in Catholic-run Psychiatric Institutions and Orphanages in Ireland.
Over the years, there were a very few number of boys in the Religious run Institutions who were brave enough to complain about been raped by Clerics, Christian Brothers or other order of Priests or Brothers. The boy or boys were brought to an Irish Catholic psychiatric ward, for assessment, declared to be vile liars and homosexual deviants and then castrated.
In my own case when I was a 15 year old boy in the Boy’s Club in Dublin, this threat of Dundrum Lunatic Asylum was very effective in silencing me when I started to complain about been raped by the visiting Clerics including the Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid. We boys of the Boys Club were immobilised with genuine fear, afraid that the penalty for daring to speak out about our rapes, would result in our movement to Dundrum Lunatic Asylum. All the boys of the Boys Club were former inmates of Religious run Industrial Schools of Ireland, mostly the infamous Artane Industrial School, Dublin.
There were a few stories making the rounds at the Boy’s Club, that a 16 year old boy who lived at the Hostel for about 3 months, had complained of been raped by visiting Clerics. This boy was suddenly moved during the night and was now incarcerated in the infamous Dundrum Lunatic Asylum. I was a friend of this particular boy, and I asked one of the resident Nun’s Sister Joseph, the following morning what happened to my friend, that his bed was empty and his bedding, his merger things had gone. I wanted to visit him, I was told that would be impossible, he, the boy is in Dundrum for his own safety.
The fear of Dundrum alone was enough to frighten me into silence, though I still insisted in seeing him, my friend, but Sister Joseph gently dissuaded me. I knew what had happened to him, he told me in secret, as he cried, I felt his pain, because he knew it was happening to me too. We boys, of the Religious run Institutions knew from many horror stories by other boys and the manipulating Clerics, that the very name “Dundrum Lunatic Asylum” was enough to send fear cruising through our hearts and minds. Something else, there was a registered Psychiatrist on the board of the management of The Boy’s Club, his name was Paul McQuaid, his uncle was the Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid. I learnt later that it was Paul McQuaid, the Hostel’s Psychiatrist, that had the boy committed to Dundrum Lunatic Asylum. Sister Joseph told me 8 months later that the boy, my friend had died, I cried for him, I cried for me. I now know the power and fear, alone, of the name “Dundrum” as did every boy in the Boy’s Club and every child in all the Religious run Institutions in Ireland.
The infamous Dundrum Lunatic Asylum in Dublin was spoken in hush tones, as most have been too, the Nazi death camps were, with many of the people that died or were incarcerated in. In my opinion over 500 children were incarcerated in both Dundrum and other Lunatic Asylum” in Ireland. We know also that after the Religious run Institutions were forced to close, hundreds if not thousands of children ended up in these Lunatic Asylum” in Ireland. Many Industrial children died there, in hopeless despair, another Institution, another life, more beatings, more rapes, more senseless deaths. Every form of experiment was carried out on their frail bodies, their feeble minds, their debilitated spirits.
Homosexuality, especially same-sex relationships between men, was considered deviant, sinful and even criminal for centuries in Ireland. Psychiatrists and doctors began to address homosexuality, too, they labeled same-sex desire in medical terms, and started looking for ways to reverse it. The Catholic Church teaches that such unnatural acts are always violations of divine and natural law. The Catholic Church’s tradition has generally prohibited any and all non-coital genital activities, whether engaged in by couples or individuals, regardless of whether they were of the same or different sex.
Catholic Catechism teaches that desiring others of the same sex is not sinful but acting on those desires is. Remember that over 80% of serving Catholic Priests world wide are gay. A pedophile Catholic Priest is the cruelest animal.
Homosexuality was rooted in a boy’s testicles. This theory led to testicle transplantation experiments, during which gay men were castrated, then given “heterosexual” testicles.” but the Catholic Church theorised that homosexuality was a psychological disorder instead. The Irish Catholic Church began to use new psychiatric interventions in an attempt to “cure” deviant and sinful boys. Especially boys that complained of Clerical Rape.
Some boys were given electroconvulsive therapy, at the Catholic-run Psychiatric Institutions in Ireland. While others were subjected to even more extreme techniques like lobotomies. A few of the male Psychiatrists with dubious medical degrees, worked in the Catholic run mental institutions in Ireland and were in fact trained Catholic Priests.
Other “treatments advised by the Catholic Psychiatrists at the Catholic run institutions, included shocks administered through electrodes that were implanted directly into the brain of the child, to “change” the sexual orientation of the boy. These cruel and scientifically dubious forms of “treatment,” but the concept that homosexuality was a disease was accepted by the majority of the medical establishment at the time. This included the Irish Psychiatric Association, which considered homosexuality to be a psychiatric disorder, as did most other countries.
In reality, in Ireland at least many of the vulnerable boys were psychologically and even sexually raped by the Clerics. They weren’t gay, they were children brutally raped by frustrated Irish Clerics. The only thing that castration quackery did to the boys later and as men were to damage their self esteem, increased their suicide risk and cause numerous mental health problems, throughout their lives. Homosexual activity was referred to as "unnatural, crimes against nature", "unnatural, crimes against God.” The Act defined buggery as an unnatural sexual act against the will of God, and was punishable by both Church and State Law.
Psychiatrists everywhere began to believe homosexuality could be cured through therapy, most Psychiatrists believed that homosexuality was a mental illness. The Roman Catholic Church did believe that homosexuality was both deviant act and a mental illness. Believing that the only cure was castration of boys who they suspect of been sexually abnormal or boys that had accused a holy Catholic Priest as having raped the boy.
Catholic Priests had pride, an overabundance of confidence in their own belief that they were the spokespersons of an extraterrestrial god, they also had abundance of free mischievous time. Catholic Priests did not or would not extend their hand to the poor, but they extended their corrupt hands to vulnerable children of both the poor and the rich, as they felt it was their right. Their right to take, their right to rape, they were sure that they were invincible, too powerful to be defeated, fully backed by a very powerful corrupt Church. Most people in Ireland viewed Catholic Priests as benevolent, indestructible uncles, and not the malignant rapists, pernicious pedophiles, who operated in plain sight, in their local communities. Catholic Priests were raised up and committed abominations before God, with their wanton acts of rape of children. When the Book of Leviticus condemns men who lie with men, no reference is made in the Holy Book about children, or to lie with and rape children.
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. —Leviticus 18:22, 20:13
The Catholic Church ’s particular fixation--which has persisted in religious teachings ever since--is with same-sex male sodomy. This is partly because the Catholic Church is most concerned with sodomy as a clerical vice, the ubiquity of which among Catholic Priests threatened the integrity of the Roman Church. The Catholic Church favours the death penalty for unnatural sexual act against the will of God, in line with Leviticus. The logic seems to be that, since these homosexual people cannot change, they must be destroyed, just as Sodom was destroyed, and that destruction is a vital reaffirmation of the divine order. Here is the outrage, and why we should be outraged is many Catholic Priests, including the present Pope, have claimed that children have enticed them, posing and processed by the devil, tempting them, the holy innocent Priests into committing wholly unnatural sexual acts, against the will of God. Who would utter such nonsense, but a sick mind of a Cleric, Nietzsche said -“that the Priest is himself ‘sick'
Here is what an 18th. century English Legal brain, Sir William Blackstone described the 'infamous crime against nature' as an offence of 'deeper malignity' than rape, a heinous act, 'the very mention of which is a disgrace to human nature' and 'a crime not fit to be named.' To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching. Owen Felix O’Neill
+++ Two links below—People may have forgotten, but a few years ago Police in another country, Belgium, had to break-in to, two Belgium Catholic Cardinals’ tombs, in the Cathedral of Mechelen north of Brussels, in search of secret documents about child rape, that were stored in the Cardinals tombs. The police drilled into the tomb of Cardinal Jozef-Ernest Van Roey, and Cardinal Léon-Josef Suenens, two former archbishops of Mechelen-Brussels, and used cameras to look for documents. The Belgium Catholic Church was obstructing the civil authorities in their lawful investigations of child rape by Belgium Clerics. I point this out to show the lengths of law breaking that the Roman Catholic Church will go to, to both obstruct and hide documents about the rape of children.This is not just about Belgium, but every other Catholic Country in the world.
Vatican taken by surprise over Belgium police raids
ROME — The Vatican expressed “shock” on Friday at the raid on Thursday by the Belgian police of church offices in their search for hidden evidence of child sex abuse by priests. It also voiced its “indignation” at what it called the “violation” of two cardinals’ tombs in the search.
