The Devil at Home in Rome

Priests of Darkness


Insiders Claim Satanists Skulk in the Vatican

Reports persist of actual devil-worship in the Holy See.
What is worrisome is that these reports are from insiders who should know.


“Through some crack or other in the temple of God, the smoke of Satan has entered .”

— Pope Paul VI, 1972

Don't look now...A book published several years ago by a retired priest, Msgr. Luigi Marinelli, caused quite a stir in Italy. Gone With the Wind at the Vatican flew off the shelves as Italians eagerly consumed its stories of greedy bishops, money-laundering prelates, and even sexual abuse. In so doing, he became but the latest Vatican insider to allege that satanic rituals have been performed within the walls of the Holy See. Another recent book, the anonymously written Blood Lies in the Vatican, also hinted at Masonic plots in Rome.

This latest round began with allegations described as “explosive,” made in Rome in November 1996 by an archbishop that members of the Roman Catholic hierarchy there are secretly involved in formal satanic worship. These charges have been confirmed as true by a well-known Vatican insider and are all the more remarkable by the total lack of notice in the US press.

Abp. Milingo – a better exorcist than the Pope?Emmanuel Milingo

Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, 71, is a formerly high-ranking cleric who first spoke out about satanism in the Vatican, and took a lot of heat for it.

Recently, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican’s chief doctinal enforcer, has banned charismatic healing sessions and exorcisms during Mass. In particular, a diocesan bishop can now forbid another bishop from conducting exorcisms in his diocese — a direct slap at Milingo, who as an archbishop, has been able to conduct his wildly popular healing sessions wherever he wanted. This has angered the Vatican, which recently removed him from his post as Special Delegate for the Pontifical Council for Migrants, rendering him unimportant to the Curia.

He had already been exiled some three years ago when his exhuberant rites, characterized by some ecclesiastics of owing more to traditional African witchcraft than Catholicism, attracted too much attention. “Tales of [his] miraculous cures from cancer, AIDS and other terminal illnesses abound in Italy. Thousands converge on his services to witness people, reputedly possessed with demons, writhing in agony on the floor while Milingo conducts his mass exorcism – dancing, singing and shouting.” (London Telegraph, 2/7/99)

He has also made enemies of his fellow Zambian priests, who accused him of practicing “black magic” — as he has accused an unidentified cabal of Vatican clerics of doing. Subjected to a trial that he said resembled the Inquisition, he was cleared by the personal intervention of Pope John Paul II, who allegedly described him as a “lightning rod for the Devil.” But Milingo was nevertheless stripped of his archbishop’s rank.

This happened, ironically, around the time the Vatican decided to play down the existance of the Devil. Evil is now seen as a pervasive, deceptive force, rather than as a personal being which can possess humans. The new view emphasizes psychology, since according to Msgr. Corrado Balducci, a Vatican exorcist who recently declared that aliens are not devils either, most cases brought to the Church’s attention come from psychiatric disturbances, not demons.

Perhaps, but in so doing, the new ritual seems to have been severely weakened. Pope John Paul II himself, along with his chief exorcist, were bested by the Devil during an attempted exorcism of a 15-year-old girl not long ago. Is it Vatican jealousy at work or is there another, more ominous reason? Could the very halls of the Holy See themselves have been infiltrated by satanists as Milingo and others have asserted?

The Exorcist’s Accusations

Milingo first made the accusations in an address to an audience of clergy and laity from across the globe at the Fatima 2000 International Congress on World Peace, held in Rome on November 18-23, 1996. Commenting on the growth of evil in the world and the need for more exorcists to aid the many people afflicted by demonic activity, he stated:

Now the third dimension [of evil] is the most dangerous. It is subtle and most terrible. . . I could not believe when I discovered this third dimension of evil. The third dimension is people who follow instructions in satanic sects. . .

Now with this third dimension, I’m sorry to say, our Church belongs to it. I’m very sorry, I could not understand myself, and even now I don’t understand. But the only consolation I have is that, well, Judas Iscariot was one. Together with Jesus for three years, he never changed, then I understand that the third dimension of evil existed not only now, but it existed even then. Because nothing could change the heart of Judas Iscariot — nothing. (Emphasis added.)

Milingo, formerly Archbishop of Lusaka, Zambia, has written books such as Face to Face With the Devil, and travels around the world preaching and healing. He has publicly accused fellow Catholic clergymen of harboring Satan’s minions:

The devil in the Catholic Church is so protected now that he is like an animal protected by the government; put on a game preserve that outlaws anyone, especially hunters, from trying to capture or kill it. The devil within the Church today is actually protected by certain Church authorities from the official devil-hunter in the Church — the exorcist. So much so that the exorcist today is forbidden to attack the devil. The devil is so protected that the one who is the hunter, the exorcist, is forbidden to do his job. (Emphasis added.)

Statements like these understandably caused a furor in the Italian press, gaining front-page headlines. Three days after his speech Milingo gave a press conference to clarify his remarks, causing a second outburst of sensational media coverage. To the question, “Are there men of the Curia who are followers of Satan?” the prelate replied, “Certainly there are priests and bishops. I stop at this level of ecclesiastical hierarchy because I am an archbishop, higher than this I cannot go.”

It should be noted that the only ranks higher than archbishop in the Roman Catholic Church are those of the cardinals and the Pope himself.

Il Tempo and other major daily papers reported that Milingo used a statement by Pope Paul VI to back up his charges. In 1972, Paul surveyed the wreckage to the Church after the Second Vatican Council and was widely reported to have said, “From somewhere or other, the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God.” Milingo added, “I have not heard that anyone has seen him leave. We must pray that he will go away.”

Nary a word of this made it into the American media, until it was reported in the Winter 1997 issue of The Fatima Crusader, a conservative pro-Marian Catholic newsletter associated with the group that sponsored the Fatima 2000 Congress. The story was picked up by William F. Jasper and reported in The New American, the organ of the John Birch Society, a right-wing political group, in the issue of March 3, 1997.

Milingo’s remarks have been strangely ignored by the American press. The New American claimed that a Lexis/Nexis data search found not a single mention of his Fatima 2000 Congress statements, and were informed by an Associated Press researcher that Milingo was considered “a big old mouth” that was always spouting “a lot of insanity,” because of his outspoken opinions about such things as the existence of Satan and of miracles.

A sudden defection

Then recently, to the undoubted shock of his followers and the delight of his enemies, Milingo has, to all intents, jumped ship. On Sunday, May 27, 2001, the controversial archbishop married a Korean acupuncturist, Maria Sung, 43. The woman was chosen for him, and the ceremony was presided over, by none other than the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, head of the Unification Church and self-proclaimed Messiah.

Automatic excommunication should be the result if the Vatican considers him guilty of apostasy or violating the Church’s celibacy laws. Roman Catholic canon law, of course, frowns on marriages by senior clerics, no matter who does the ceremony.

After the wedding, conducted by Moon in a ballroom at the New York Hilton with about 60 other couples, Milingo told reporters the Vatican’s threat of excommunication meant “nothing” to him. “It doesn’t affect me,” he declared. “I have an obligation to carry out what the Lord wants, and that’s what I’m doing.”

“God is still with me,” he said. “I love my church.” In a later statement, he said he and his new bride would return to Africa to bring a mission of healing to the AIDS and war-ravaged continent.

The archbishop was not the only renegade cleric to wed that day. Former Roman Catholic priest George Stallings, 53, now archbishop of his own breakaway African American church, also wed, as did numerous Christians and Muslims.

The Vatican was indeed swift to react. The very next day, chief spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said that Milingo “could not be considered a bishop of the Catholic Church” and would be subject to “foreseen canonical sanctions.” This almost certainly means formal excommunication.

Milingo’s decision to marry is viewed as a slap in the face for Pope John Paul II, who had shown him leniency despite pressure from leading Vatican officials. Senior Roman Catholic church sources said the Zambian bishops would ask the Vatican to expedite the excommunication of Milingo from the Church for what they saw as a betrayal.

“Milingo has betrayed the Zambian people and the Catholic Church. If it is in the name of Jesus and the glory of God he acted, then it is incomprehensible that he was married by a man whose followers consider (him) the messiah,” one source told Reuters.

Incredibly, the Unification Church has been linked to devil worship in Zambia and has been forced to clear its name in the courts.

According to some experts, Moon, facing a steady loss in his ranks, looks to Africa as a new recruiting ground. Undoubtedly, the acquisition of such a charismatic figure as Milingo is quite a feather in his crown.

The effect of this on Milingo’s followers, including those in the Fatima movement, is bound to be catastrophic. In one move, he has done to himself what his enemies in the Curia could not accomplish in twenty years. And in so doing, he has unfortunately lost much of whatever credibility he may have had.

Not long after his marriage, Milingo returned the Church. It was reported that after a retreat he had reconciled with the Pope and renounced his wedding. His new wife said she would launch a hunger strike in protest. Not much has been heard since and it is doubtful Milingo will ever speak out again.

Another exorcist

In The Fatima Crusader article, Malachi Martin, a scholar, Vatican insider, and best-selling author, said, “Archbishop Milingo is a good bishop and his contention that there are satanists in Rome is completely correct. Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome.”

He said more members of the clergy becoming aware of the situation, and that Archbishop Milingo was “merely like that actor in the movie Network, who got fed up and said, ‘I’m not going to take it anymore.’”

But Martin had his own allegations of Vatican skullduggery to make, ones that were much more detailed and serious than those of Milingo. These will be discussed in detail in the next article.

Agenda 21 – Beware Total Control

…The UN Blueprint for the 21st Century *

The Green Agenda
20.08.2008

“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”
– excerpt, UN Agenda 21

Agenda 21 – The UN Blueprint for the 21st Century

As described in my previous article on Sustainable Development, Agenda 21 was the main outcome of the United Nation’s Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Agenda 21 outlines, in detail, the UN’s vision for a centrally managed global society. This contract binds governments around the world to the United Nation’s plan for controlling the way we live, eat, learn, move and communicate – all under the noble banner of saving the earth. If fully implemented, Agenda 21 would have the government involved in every aspect of life of every human on earth.

Agenda 21 spreads it tentacles from Governments, to federal and local authorities, and right down to community groups. Chapter 28 of Agenda 21 specifically calls for each community to formulate its own Local Agenda 21: ”Each local authority should enter into a dialogue with its citizens, local organizations, and private enterprises and formulate ‘a Local Agenda 21.’ Through consultation and consensus-building, local authorities would learn from citizens and from local, civic, community, business and industrial organizations and acquire the information needed for formulating the best strategies.” – Agenda 21, Chapter 28, sec 1.3

Interestingly, in April 1991, fourteen months before Earth Summit, Prince Charles held a private two day international conference aboard the royal yacht Britannia, moored off the coast of Brazil. His goal was to bring together key international figures in an attempt to achieve a degree of harmony between the various countries that would gather at the Summit. Al Gore was present, along with senior officials from the United Nations and the World Bank.

At the summit 179 nations officially signed Agenda 21 and many more have followed since. Nearly 12,000 local and federal authorities have legally committed themselves to the Agenda. In practice this means that all their plans and policies must begin with an assessment of how the plan or policy meets the requirements of Agenda 21, and no plans or policies are allowed to contradict any part of the Agenda. Local authorities are audited by UN inspectors and the results of the audits are placed on the UN website. You can see how many local authorities in your country were bound by Agenda 21 in 2001 here. The number has increased significantly since then.

The official opening ceremony was conducted by the Dalai Lama and centered around a Viking long-ship that was constructed to celebrate the summit and sailed to Rio from Norway. The ship was appropriately named Gaia. A huge mural of a beauiful woman holding the earth within her hands adorned the entrance to the summit. Al Gore lead the US delegation where he was joined by 110 Heads of State, and representatives of more than 800 NGO’s.

Maurice Strong, Club of Rome member, devout Bahai, founder and first Secretary General of UNEP, has been the driving force behind the birth and imposition of Agenda 21. While he chaired the Earth Summit, outside his wife Hanne and 300 followers called the Wisdom-Keepers, continuously beat drums, chanted prayers to Gaia, and trended scared flames in order to “establish and hold the energy field” for the duration of the summit. You can view actual footage of these ceremonies on YouTube. During the opening speech Maurice Strong made the following statements:

“The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security.” – Link

“It is the responsibility of each human being today to choose between the force of darkness and the force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of Divine Nature.” – Link

“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable. A shift is necessary which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations.” – Link

Among other things, the agenda called for a Global Biodiversity Assessment of the State of the Earth. Prepared by the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP), this 1140 page document armed UN leaders with the “ecological basis, and moral authority” they needed to validate their global management system. The GBA concludes on page 863 that “the root causes of the loss of biodiversity are embedded in the way societies use resources. This world view is characteristic of large scale societies, heavily dependent on resources brought from considerable distances. It is a world view that is characterized by the denial of sacred attributes in nature, a characteristic that became firmly established about 2000 years ago with the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religious traditions. Eastern cultures with religious traditions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism did not depart as drastically from the perspective of humans as members of a community of beings including other living and non-living elements.” In other words Christians and Moslems are to blame for the sorry state of the world because their religions do not involve worshipping “sacred nature.”

Following the Earth Summit Maurice Strong was named Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, and was appointed to the position of Chief Policy Advisor by Kofi Annan. He was also a member of the UN’s Commission on Global Governance, and the key architect of the Kyoto Protocol. Strong and his wife have also established the Manitou Foundation, providing land in the Colorado to an eclectic mix of religious groups, including the Crestone Mountain Zen Center, the Spiritual Life Institute (a Catholic Carmelite monastery), the Haidakhandi Universal Ashram, the Sri Aurobindo Learning Center, Mangala Shri Bhuti (Tibetan Buddhists), and Karma Thegsum Tashi Gomang (Indian mystics). The Strongs have located their spiritual centre in the Colorado mountains because:”The Strongs learned that since antiquity indigenous peoples had revered this pristine wilderness as a place for conducting their vision quests and receiving shamanic trainings. It is prophesied that the world’s religious traditions would gather here and help move theworld toward globally conscious co-existence and co-creation.”

So what exactly does Agenda 21 contain? It consists of 115 different and very specific programs designed to facilitate, or to force, the transition to Sustainable Development. The objective, clearly enunciated by the leaders of the Earth Summit, is to bring about a change in the present system of independent nations. The agenda is broken up into 8 ‘programme areas for action’:

>> Agriculture
>> Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management
>> Education
>> Energy and Housing
>> Population
>> Public Health
>> Resources and recycling
>> Transportation, Sustainable Economic Development

As you can see Agenda 21 addresses nearly every aspect of modern life. If you have a spare few days the entire document can be read here. I encourage the reader to at least read the Table of Contents in order to understand the true scope of this ‘blueprint for the 21st century.’ I won’t torture the reader by going into the document in too much depth but I will provide the first six paragraphs so that you can understand the true intent of Agenda 21:

1.1. Humanity stands at a defining moment in history. We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them will lead to the fulfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can – in a global partnership for sustainable development.

1.2. This global partnership must build on the premises of General Assembly resolution 44/228 of 22 December 1989, which was adopted when the nations of the world called for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, and on the acceptance of the need to take a balanced and integrated approach to environment and development questions.

1.3. Agenda 21 addresses the pressing problems of today and also aims at preparing the world for the challenges of the next century. It reflects a global consensus and political commitment at the highest level on development and environment cooperation. Its successful implementation is first and foremost the responsibility of Governments. National strategies, plans, policies and processes are crucial in achieving this. International cooperation should support and supplement such national efforts. In this context, the United Nations system has a key role to play. Other international, regional and subregional organizations are also called upon to contribute to this effort. The broadest public participation and the active involvement of the non-governmental organizations and other groups should also be encouraged.

1.4. The developmental and environmental objectives of Agenda 21 will require a substantial flow of new and additional financial resources to developing countries, in order to cover the incremental costs for the actions they have to undertake to deal with global environmental problems and to accelerate sustainable development. Financial resources are also required for strengthening the capacity of international institutions for the implementation of Agenda 21.

1.5. In the implementation of the relevant programme areas identified in Agenda 21, special attention should be given to the particular circumstances facing the economies in transition. It must also be recognized that these countries are facing unprecedented challenges in transforming their economies, in some cases in the midst of considerable social and political tension.

1.6. The programme areas that constitute Agenda 21 are described in terms of the basis for action, objectives, activities and means of implementation. Agenda 21 is a dynamic programme. It will be carried out by the various actors according to the different situations, capacities and priorities of countries and regions in full respect of all the principles contained in the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development. It could evolve over time in the light of changing needs and circumstances. This process marks the beginning of a new global partnership for sustainable development.

Like many ‘green movement initiatives’ Agenda 21 is a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’. As explained in my brief biography I have been actively involved in preparing Agenda 21 action plans and monitoring compliance with environmental permits. All the policies and plans we developed were required to begin with a description of how they met the objectives of Agenda 21 and various other UN agreements, and were audited too determine how they complied with UN requirements. It was these experiences that lead to my research into what was ‘behind it all’ and the subsequent publication of this website.

Agenda 21 is not an environmental management policy, but an attempt to impose a global centrally planned quasi-government administered by the United Nations. Under Agenda 21 all central government and local authority signatories are required to conform strictly to a common prescribed standard and hence this is just communism resurrected in a new guise. Now that Agenda 21 has gained a stranglehold on global regulatory and planning processes Maurice Strong and his Club of Rome colleagues have moved on to the next phase of the Global Green Agenda.

In association with fellow CoR member Mikhail Gorbachev, Strong co-chaired the committee responsible for drafting the Earth Charter. Compared to the 2500 pages that make up Agenda 21 and the BGA it is a tiny document – only 4 pages long. But it is of far more significance to the Global Green Agenda. The Earth Charter is a “declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century”. It is the constitution for a New Green Order. You can read about it here.

Tax Initiative:45% Income Tax, 55% Wealth Tax & 36%-54% Exit Tax

Steps to Socialism? Is this why Gates & Buffet have their assets converted into “charitable” foundations but their wealth still under their control?

=========================================

August 27, 2008

California Ballot Initiative to Impose 45% Income Tax, 55% Wealth Tax & 36%-54% Exit Tax

A California activist is trying to gather the 694,354 signatures needed to place a tax initiative on the ballot that would:

  • Impose a new 35% income surtax (in addition to federal taxes and the existing 10.3% top state rate) — 17.5% (on all of the taxpayer’s income) when income exceeds $150,000 (single)/$250,000 (joint), and an additional 17.5% (again, on all of the taxpayer’s income) when income exceeds $350,000 (single)/$500,000 (joint).
  • Impose a one-time 55% wealth tax on assets exceeding $20 million held by a California resident or held in California by nonresident.
  • Impose an exit tax of between 36.5% to 54.3% on both income and unrealized appreciation in asset values over $5 million when a resident dies or leaves California.
