Two Top Vatican Officials Charged for Sex Crimes

By Aaron Kesel

The Vatican is being rocked by scandals; two high-ranking members of the congregation have been arrested for lewd crimes including one alleged to have sexually assaulted children.

The Pope’s chief financial adviser, Cardinal George Pell, and another unknown top priest have been arrested. Pell stands accused of possession of child pornography and the unknown priest is accused of hosting a drug fueled sex orgy party.

Last month, Pell, one of Australia’s most senior Catholics, was charged with multiple counts of “historical” sexual assault offenses according to police, the Independent reported.

“Pell will appear in an Australian court to face multiple charges of historical sexual assault offences,” Victoria state Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said.

Pell is the highest ranking official to ever be charged in the church’s long-running sexual abuse scandals.

He has also previously faced allegations that he mishandled cases of clergy abuse when he was archbishop of Melbourne and, later, Sydney. Now he is under the microscope for his own alleged abuse.

The allegations may stem from two men, now in their 40s who allege Pell inappropriately touched them at a pool party in the late 1970s, The Telegraph reported.

“It’s been very difficult for them to stick their neck out,” Ingrid  Irwin told Melbourne’s Herald Sun. “To come out against someone who is second to God, in some people’s minds, has caused all sorts of problems for them.”

Pell “strenuously denied all allegations” and “is looking forward to his day in court and will defend the charges vigorously,” according to a press statement by The Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney.

“I’m innocent of these charges. They are false,” Pell said at a press conference. “The whole idea of sexual abuse is abhorrent to me . . . These matters have been under investigation now for two years,” Pell  said.

“There have been leaks to the media. There’s been relentless character assassination – a relentless character assassination. And for more than a month, claims that a decision on whether to lay charges was imminent . . . I’m looking forward finally to having my day in court,” he said.

“All along, I have been completely consistent and clear in my total rejection of these allegations,” Pell added. “News of these charges strengthens my resolve … and court proceedings now offer me an opportunity to clear my name and then return here, back to Rome, to work.”

Pell, the third highest-ranking cardinal, is required to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on 18 July 2017 for a court hearing.

Vatican police also raided a drug-fueled gay sex party at a top priest’s apartment last month, according to Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano.

The apartment was raided after neighbors complained of unusual behavior among frequent nighttime visitors.

The Italian newspaper quoted police as stating that they found drugs and a group of men engaged in sexual activity when they entered the apartment.

The priest serves as secretary to cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, Pope Francis’ own personal adviser.

Ironically, the apartment belongs to Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith  – the department which is tasked with ridding sexual abuse within the church.

In 2014, Pope Francis vowed to eradicate “despicable” sex abuse within the church. Last may Francis acknowledged over 2,000 cases of child sex abuse allegations on backlog within the church.

    “…Jesus Christ NEVER existed, and the eucharist is just flour and water! Mary was no more a virgin than my mother, and adultery is no worse than rubbing two hands together!”
    Pope Boniface VIII (1294-1303)

    • Neither did Moses or David. Solomon was a depraved lunatic Lucifer worshipping monster with a life style to match. Also, reading the Expeditions of Babylon, Sumer, Assyria, Excavation of Palestine, the Old Testament is the sickest fairy tale of all. The excavation of Palestine did show the “Israelites” to be the most depraved people I have ever read about, with no consistent weights and measures, fertility god and goddess rites and rituals including human sacrifice and cannibalism of newborns and young people (see Yahweh and his Asherah FACT) , little education and few games for children. They manufactured little and depended on the Philistines for what good they did have until later semitic period with the emergence of Greece and then Rome. All we hear of Babylon is pure bullshit, as it was very highly advanced culturally and mathematically, far beyond Sumer. Archeology shows that they were probably the Hyksos who were run out of Egypt, just as they were perpetual problems to every country that surrounded them. In fact, the lies are so big and deep that there is almost nothing what the Judah-ites or Israel-ites (they split in 930BC) that would show them to be of any value whatsoever. In addition read https://ashraf62.wordpress.com/ancient-egypt-knew-no-pharaohs/ . Ralph Ellis goes into detail how most of what is written is straight out of Egypt by Egyptians. It is a FACT that proverbs was lifted from the writings of Amenemope, monotheism from Akhenaten, that the only building matching the description of Solomons temple is in Egypt, Ramses III at Medinet Habu. The Egyptians had 2 KINGDOMS not PHARAOHDOMS. Now there is a fact that Esa, a King of Edessa, son of Mary and visited by three Persian Kings is true, making the christian religion that closer to that of a bank heist than reality. Islam does in fact write of Esa as the predecessor to Mohammed, but he was poisoned. The oldest Qur’an found at Sana’a Yemen bares little resemblance to the current writing. Since the Judean Flavians and Pisos cobble together the New Testament, Islam was most likely Judah-ized as well. The trinity is straight from the Kemites of Egypt and probably Vedic before then. The Talmud is pure crap and should be burned for all eternity along with the Kabbalah, hate literature and diseased thinking beyond the imagination of all but the most vile on earth.

      Don’t let the Abrahamioso hear you quoting this, you gonna have some splainin’ to do! Especially if you are joking, satirizing, or simply using humor. They won’t abide the idea that there may not be an invisible man in the sky who sent his son, which he is as well, on a suicide mission to an illiterate city of peoples under the subjugation of the Roman empire. You got to have faith, “of course” and refute critical thinking, and blindly believe, not in yourself, but in an extraterrestrial “other” that chides you for being human, for lusting, for wanting, and disputes your ability to change without the message of only through his/hers/it’s teachings, can you be just, moral, or good.

          Cheers!

          This reads like a script reveal from Season 2 of HBO’s, “The Young Pope”. Gay sex orgies were, I thought legal, but the kiddy fiddling is a serious no no. Perhaps all that talk about the morality of the species deriving from religious teachings is what it always was; a sales pitch? Religion provided early humanity with a framework to explain nature, reality, and to give the species a purpose greater than survival and procreation. Well, good job religions, mission accomplished. We have the scientific method, and the secular tradition of critical thinking, so you can pack up your sh it and piss off back to the dark ages, we’re all full up on bullshi t in this world. We are grateful for you enabling humanity to better divide itself because your imaginary friends don’t play nice. Now if you wouldn’t mind, could you please reign in your religious elites from molesting children? It is all so tawdry and highly corrosive to the health of the next generation.

          p.s. Last time I checked, outside of Ancient Greece, such practices are not condoned among the faithful, not withstanding that guy who’s really famous who married a little girl. Thanks!

            towards the ‘Third’/Muslim-Catholic World and their Indigenous population- are not keeping the world/humanity in the dark ages?!! So could u please put a tight leash over yr. Luciferian buddies there from all their endless mass murder/rape/robbery?!

            Now, get a civilized and real critical thinking education!

          • uncle bobedy | July 6, 2017 at 7:58 am |

            THIS article is NOT about the meta-conspiracies that plague this planet of ours, it IS about the claim of two individuals engaged in bad things. Bad things are not exclusive to members of the catholic church, but what I was responding to, is how it is an outdated and vestigial appendage of the human condition, that has created much evil in the name of doing good.

            THIS is NOT about the larger concept of varied forces aligned against humanity. Were this an article about THAT, I would be right next to you, shouting down its’ presence, and denying it any harbor in my heart.

            I think that whatever face is worn by the true evil masters of this world, I want only to do my part to end their reign, and you sound ready and willing to do the same, congratulations, brother.

            p.s. SOME of what you read, may well be a joke, humor goes much farther with people than confrontation. in other words, don’t take things so seriously. You’re shouting through your keyboard because you didn’t read the proper letters in the correct sequence of what you believe the truth is. THAT is humorous, yet I agree, there ARE forces aligned against us. Be vigilant!

          • nooraza othman | July 6, 2017 at 4:43 pm |

            Twisting yr words now do u? U did demonize religion so nastily; so don’t give me yr stupid BS ranting! And such demonization should not be a joke! And if I take things seriously, unlike u; so what?

            Now like I said, get a civilized education because most things which are very important to most humanity, are not mere jokes!

          • uncle bobedy | July 6, 2017 at 7:16 pm |

            AHAHAH stupid bullshyt ranting is the DEFINITION of your drumming about zionists, lucefarians, and the rest of your hodgepodge of scary monsters. I did my best to reach consensus with you, to offer an olive branch but, I am reminded yet again, that a fool needs no friends. I am no smarter than you are, but I have an opinion that religion is EXACTLY the curse you speak of, IT is the blah blah blah boogeyman that swirls through your mind when the lights go out.

            I’ve offended you with my critique of religion, normally I would apologize or qualify my statements, but NO, I am beyond tired of fools who continue supporting the age old greasy tradition of believing in nonsense to feel safe.

            It is beyond time that people stop being divided by larger forces and instead align together against the common enemy of man, ignorance and blind faith, and join together in the search for truth, and discovery.

            p.s. I was right about you, you REALLY need to take a break from the keyboard wizardry and have a beer, and some company!

          • nooraza othman | July 7, 2017 at 10:26 am |

            I was right about Usociopath, who have indeed shown what a CURSED Luciferian u r! Pretending cowardly as if the Zionists/Luciferians don’t exist.

            And I HATE beer – so u have a problem with DIVERSE culture and civilization? Now get off uZioNazi sociopath! And stop censoring my freedom of speech, ufool!

          • uncle bobedy | July 7, 2017 at 11:14 am |

            This is like an episode of Scooby Doo, you’ve managed to see past my facade of critiquing religion, and the religious, and deciphered the deeper strain of hidden evil. Congratulations! Scooby Snacks for everyone!! You post this zionist, cannibal, necro, is rael, nat o stuff at such an incredible frequency and so repetitively that I question the sincerity behind it. The only time I’ve experienced such blind devotion to something that sounded silly, is a standup comedy routine.

            So, I deduce that YOU, FOGGYDEW, are in fact not genuinely serious about zionists and Luciferians, cannibals and IZrael, nato and necrophiliacs; and are trolling us all when you post! REVEAL YOURSELF !!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAAH

            Even IF I was what you accuse me of being, I would never try to censor your free speech. Free Speech isn’t free, not here in the USA, it has slowly become conditional speech. I won’t explain how this all works, because I don’t have the necessary skills to break through troll jokes, or at worst, the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic, but I hope you don’t cross the evil monsters under the bed, we aren’t all as nice as me. Sweet dreamy’s……….

            Jeez, SOCIOPATH coward ZioNazi agents trying to shut my freedom of speech by twisting my comments as if one big joke! REVEAL yr ZioNazi self and get CIVILIZED!

          • nooraza othman | July 8, 2017 at 9:20 am |

            By the way, why r uSociopath ZioNazis, so afraid of the real TRUTHS coming out?!! Getting paranoid do uSociopath?!

          • uncle bobedy | July 8, 2017 at 9:54 am |

            What TRUTHS have you spoken of?

            Is the revelation that zionists exist the truth? Are nazi’s the truth? Is the history of the powerful preying upon the powerless the truth?

            I hate to break it to you, but the entire world LIVES that truth everyday, all day. They know that truth far better then your breathless repetitive buzzwords. Your conspiracy salad that you vomit on your keyboard when confronted by an opinion you refuse to let exist is corrosive. This starts and ends, with YOU.With your inability to let others believe and live what they choose to think. THAT IS THE DEFINITION OF CENSORSHIP. You frightened child.

            You need a hug, and though you WILL respond with accusations of sociopathy, and zionism, and all the other fruit salad meaningless phrases you love, I do hope you find a person that truly loves you. They can help you to pull back from this worrying spiral that you are on, it is negative, and you should see some help; before YOU do something permanent to someone innocent.

            The only thing that makes me paranoid, is no longer seeing the joy in life and in other people.

            p.s. please take a basic English course, when you abbreviate “you, your” it is difficult to read the rest of your paltry sentiments. They lack the power of a fully considered statement. I just explained to you how you can make your message STRONGER, which is the OPPOSITE of censorship. You silly kid. Watch out for the zio-nazsee monsters under your bed, in your closet, and inside your toothbrush! They come out at night and whisper in your ears, “nothing is real” and your behavior exhibits exactly that.

          • nooraza othman | July 8, 2017 at 10:52 am |

            U silly and coward kiddo, stop vomitting rubbish lies! Why r uSociopath ZioNazis, so afraid of the real TRUTHS about yr. beloved Zionists coming out?!! Getting paranoid do upervert Sociopath?! And learn basic and civilized English will u?

          • uncle bobedy | July 8, 2017 at 11:11 am |

            You’ve done it! You’ve discovered all of my secret plans for you. You are a genius.

            Please don’t tell anyone else, as I wouldn’t want the others to figure out that my sociopathic zio plan was to use logic to refute religion, to call out neurosis, fear, and conspiracy in YOU. But, you’re too smart for me with your love of bad spelling “U, instead of you, and Ur, instead of your or you’re”. Your power of English language incomprehension is stunning, and I applaud you your belief that I am a zio-natzi-lucefarian-sociopath, it really is nice to find someone as special as you, to have discovered my true identity at long last.

            Since you love repetition as much as I love jokes, then say this for me,

            How much longer can this joy ride last Foggydew? Days, weeks, months, who knows how far we can take it until the website itself gains sentience and ejects us both.

            You repeat, not what your original statements were, but what I posted. That’s a tactic of a Category 8 algorithm. Whatever I state from this point on, will be repeated in your next post. The small accusations of sociopathy and zionism have now been augmented with a claim of perversion. It’s interesting to see how your coding progresses your statements around a response.

            Well, might as well plant a flag for all to see.

            The Vatican is a bureaucracy of the Catholic church, a place filled with politicians, internecine squabbles for power and position, and the resultant perverts and sociopaths who appear in places of power to prey on the cult members of their “religion”.

            You will claim next that I am the algorithm, because I accused you of being just that. This is such a great game, are you the Batman to my Joker? I wonder if repeating your accusations back to you might lead to a new plateau of communication?

            Foggydew is a sociopath, zionazy, protestant charcoal briquette, lampshade, lipstick container, phew, that was a lot. And, he votes for fig newtons for president every 4 years!

            Disagreement, is not censorship, using the imaginary power that YOU think I have, of zionist-nazi propaganda to stop you from expressing yourself, would be censorship.

            If I contacted all those scary monsters you are so frightened of and they blocked you from typing on your keyboard in response, would be censorship.

            Me not taking you seriously, because you are so very serious, is not censorship.

            Tell me, when I try to reach through the miasma of conspiracies, innuendos, fears, and neuroses that you display, in a offering of consensus and peace; is THAT censorship?

            p.s. It ISN’T. It is a sad, ANTIFA level dodge of reality, by constantly repeating the same 5 phrases, you make your statements SOUND true, but they are accusations and nothing more.

  2. US, UK, Australia, Israel, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil… have been running the child sex, drugs, organ trafficking along with other organizations for years. Look up “the Finders” although many of the websites have been taken down over the years. Global “Intelligence”, black ops, homeland security et. al. in every facet of depraved acts around the world, as well as all the variety of religions with one of them completely in the lead in all of this, This is an ugly time, the world being run by ugly people, with an ugly system that gives those with the least amount of morality and advantage. Money for nothing and your chicks (or young boys or even infants) for free? Sounds like a racket straight out of banking and current day religion. Why go to San Francisco when the gravest place on earth is Bohemian Grove or Tel Aviv, or Riyadh, or Washington, or Moscow, or Rio De Janeiro, or Sidney. It’s a big Talmudic, Kabbalah, Masonic club (Jesus 30 and 3 really? see Esa of Edessa) and most have no clue. Since when does god take money, have a consort (Yahweh (the great penis) has his Asherah (fertility goddess), give his thoughts to liars, cheats, thieves, murderers, plunderers, thrill killers, nihilists…who love wealth, power, access and control more than life itself and will do anything to creation/creator for it.

    If I catch a grown man raping a young child, I will utterly destroy him like the rabid dog he is. If everyone made a personal vow to do this, I think we might see a decline in pedophiles. Regardless of your faith, there is not one word in the Bible calling for a celibate priesthood. It is a lie, and an unnatural one. In fact, a church leader is supposed to have a wife, so that he is not unnecessarily tempted. This lie of a doctrine has turned the Catholic church into a magnet for pedophiles.

      ZNWO’s typical MO – is to INFILTRATE any anti-ZNWO movements or religion such as Islam/Catholicism; at the top leadership; including through Pedophile agents; in order to destroy the religion or movements from within!

      Among the ZioNazi’s ultimate goal is to achieve Lucifer’s ZNWO, where Evil=Good and Lucifer=God – thus is why anti-ZNWO Catholicism and Islam are these Luciferians’ greatest enemies! See –

    See yesterday’s Alex Jones interview with a Vatican Insider!
    If you’re a Catholic, you need to stop associating with this horrific institution and funding the same.
    Walk away from it NOW so that you can have some self-integrity and belief with conviction without the need for such an evil institution! The same institution trafficking children for sex and sacrifices, the Inquisition, housing Nazis via Paperclip, and manipulating the world’s monetary system!
