Once again, we find the head of the Catholic Church cutting a deal with the devil to benefit the Church in the face of unspeakable evil…

Yes, once again: the deal with Hitler…

The Reichskonkordat (“Concordat between the Holy See and the German Reich” is a treaty negotiated between the Vatican and the emergent Nazi Germany.

It was signed on 20 July 1933 by Cardinal Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, who later became Pope Pius XII, on behalf of Pope Pius XI and Vice Chancellor Franz von Papen on behalf of President Paul von Hindenburg and the German government. It was ratified 10 September 1933 and it has been in force from that date onward.

The treaty guarantees the rights of the Roman Catholic Church in Germany. When bishops take office Article 16 states they are required to take an oath of loyalty to the Governor or President of the German Reich established according to the constitution.

The treaty also requires all clergy to abstain from working in and for political parties.

Nazi breaches of the agreement began almost as soon as it had been signed and intensified afterwards leading to protest from the Church including in the 1937 Mit brennender Sorge encyclical of Pope Pius XI.

The Nazis planned to eliminate the Church’s influence by restricting its organizations to purely religious activities.

Pope Francis must answer questions about Church’s financial dealings with Hitler

There are numerous unanswered questions regarding financial dealings between the Church and Hitler. Possible more damaging than the Church’s cover-up of systemic child molestation by church officials and clergy.

Why would the Pope praise a terrorist and supporter of terrorism against Jews, the State of Israel, Christians and Catholics?


[OCS: I wonder if the Pope has considered that in the eyes of Muslims, Catholics, Christians, Jews, and other non-Muslims are infidels to be enslaved, debased, or killed? And that the only thing worse than an infidel is an apostate who believes in the wrong sect of Islam or who has renounced Islam for another faith?]

Pope’s New Encyclical to Praise Jihad Terror Supporter as Example of ‘Peace’ and ‘Fraternity’

Pope Francis’ new encyclical, Fratelli tutti: sulla fraternità e l’amicizia sociale (“All Brothers: On Fraternity and Social Friendship”) will be issued on October 3, the Vatican confirmed Saturday.

According to Church Militant, the encyclical is “a sequel to his controversial Abu Dhabi pact with Grand Imam Ahmad al-Tayyeb last year, and will cite Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas], a Palestinian backer of terrorism, as an example of ‘peace’ and ‘fraternity.’”

[OCS: Once again, we find the Church conferring a degree of legitimacy on one of the devil’s disciples who has crippled the advancement of his people and leads them into death and misery while growing wealthy on the proceeds of corruption. An estimate of Abbas’s net worth places it at $US 100 million while most of the population suffers in silence lest they face barbaric punishment or death. Significantly less than Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafat who was a billionaire. Let us remember that the prime business of the terrorists is terror-based contributions as there is no self-sustaining source of income in the Palestinian lands.]

Brotherly love. As I told Church Militant, Mahmoud Abbas has made it abundantly clear over the years that he doesn’t want peace, but the total destruction of Israel as a Jewish state and the eradication of all Jews from the region.

After two jihad groups, the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat, began violent riots on the Temple Mount in September 2015, he applauded: “We bless you; we bless the Mourabitoun and the Mourabitat. We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah. With the help of Allah, every shaheed (martyr) will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward. All of their steps, we will not allow them. All these divisions, Al-Aqsa is ours, and the (Church of the) Holy Sepulcher is ours, everything is ours, all ours. They (the Jews) have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet and we won’t allow them to.”

Abbas envisions the total expulsion of Jews from a Palestinian state: “In a final resolution, we would not see the presence of a single Israeli – civilian or soldier – on our lands.” And as for regarding all human beings as brothers, both Sunni and Shi’ite Islam teach that the lives of non-Muslims are not worth as much as the lives of Muslims. Reliance of the Traveller, a classic Sunni manual of Islamic sacred law, explains matter-of-factly that “the indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man. The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth that of a Muslim” (o4.9). The Qur’an calls “the unbelievers among the People of the Book,” that is, Jews and Christians who do not accept Islam, “the most vile of created beings” (Qur’an 98:6).

Sultan Hussein Tabandeh, the Shi’ite author of A Muslim Commentary on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, agrees, stating:

Thus if [a] Muslim commits adultery his punishment is 100 lashes, the shaving of his head, and one year of banishment. But if the man is not a Muslim and commits adultery with a Muslim woman his penalty is execution. … Similarly if a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin. But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim has by lifelong habit been a non-Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash. … Since Islam regards non-Muslims as on a lower level of belief and conviction, if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim, then his punishment must not be the retaliatory death, since the faith and conviction he possesses is loftier than that of the man slain…Again, the penalties of a non-Muslim guilty of fornication with a Muslim woman are augmented because, in addition to the crime against morality, social duty and religion, he has committed sacrilege, in that he has disgraced a Muslim and thereby cast scorn upon the Muslims in general, and so must be executed. … Islam and its peoples must be above the infidels, and never permit non-Muslims to acquire lordship over them.

But the Pope’s encyclical is certain to ignore all of this, and it is likely that the pontiff is completely unaware of it. The encyclical will mislead millions of Catholics into a complacency that could be fatal.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit” (Matthew 15:14).

[OCS: One might ask how the Pope can fail to condemn any individual or organization that displays intolerance and a malignant stance toward anyone not Muslim? There is an old saying that even if there were to be peace between the Muslims and the Jews, there would still never be peace between the sects of Islam that will continue to fight among themselves.]

Bottom line…


Evil is evil, and those who deal with the devil must accept that the consequences of their actions will be regarded as evil. If you show tolerance for Islam and Sharia law, it will be interpreted as a weakness – to be taken advantage of and exploited in the furtherance of the faith. And, if you follow the path of appeasement, you are just re-positioning yourself in the line to doom.

For those who fete terrorists who murder and maim innocents, you deserve a special place in hell.
