The Dark Secrets Of The Catholic Church Are Coming Out
This is shaking the Vatican to the core:
From Michael Snyder:
We aren’t supposed to talk about what goes on behind closed doors when the cameras are off and the public can’t see what is happening. There is corruption in virtually every large organization, but those that hold themselves out as “spiritual leaders” need to understand that they are going to be held to a higher standard than everyone else. And when those “spiritual leaders” greatly violate the trust that the public has put in them, the fallout can be absolutely devastating. In this article you are going to read about some things that are deeply disturbing. An immense wave of evil has swept through major religious organizations, and the Catholic Church is certainly no exception.
Most people know that Catholic priests are supposed to be celibate, but most people also know that this is often not the case. But what some priests in Italy have been involved in is shaking the Vatican to the core. The following comes from USA Today…
What was that priest thinking?
Surely he had to know that this stuff would come out eventually.
But often those in positions of power convince themselves that they can cover up their scandals forever. Of course usually it doesn’t end up working that way.
Another Catholic priest is being accused of having up to 30 different lovers…
Initially Contin tried to deny the charges, but now so many women have come forward that he can’t lie anymore.
And one of his accusers is actually claiming that Contin urged her to have sex with a horse…
It would be tempting to dismiss these latest reports as “isolated anomalies” if so many similar reports had not surfaced in recent years. Sexual immorality appears to be running rampant among the clergy, and this is particularly true among the priests that are gay. The following comes from an outstanding article that was published by Vanity Fair…
Even if the true figure is near the low end of that estimate, that still means that one out of every five Catholic priests is gay.
Like many in the Protestant world, quite a few of these priests will preach Jesus on Sundays and lead a secret “double life” the rest of the week…
Another scandal in the Catholic Church that is making headlines lately comes out of Ireland. Authorities say that they have discovered the “remains of babies” in the sewers of a home for unwed mothers that the Catholic Church was operating. One historian believes that 800 children may have died there…
And it is believed that similar things were going on at other church-run homes. In fact, law enforcement is currently investigating 17 other facilities.
We are living at a time when there is great apostasy in the Christian world.
But if you stand up and preach righteousness and holiness, you will almost certainly get attacked, and in some countries there is even a chance that you will be thrown into prison.
For example, consider what just happened in the United Kingdom…
So what did they say that was so bad?
Well, apparently one of the things that authorities were extremely concerned about is the fact that they were claiming that Jesus is the only way to God…
I was absolutely stunned when I read that, but none of us should be surprised.
We always knew that great persecution of true believers was coming, and now Christians are actually being put in prison in the western world for simply sharing the gospel publicly.
In times of great darkness, light is needed more than ever, but often there is a great price to be paid for being a light.
