Pope Intimate and Poverty Poser Receives $600,000 a Year to Do Nothing

Pauperist Maradiaga, Pope intimate and coordinator of the C9 Cardinal Advisory, has received 600,000 dollars yearly as a "bonus" without consideration.

"35,000 euros a month for the Cardinal. 
New scandal in the Vatican for Pope Francis. The friend and advisor of Francis, Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, preached pauperism, but received half a mission a year from a University of Honduras. "
The weekly L'Espresso magazine reported on the extra income of one of Pope Francis' closest confidants, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, former chairman of Caritas International, who under the current pontificate, considered himself a particularly intense poverty preacher of a "poor church for the poor."  He additionally even put himself in position as a potential successor to Pope Francis.
The weekly magazine unveiled the "new scandal" yesterday coinciding with the Christmas address of the Pope to the Roman Curia, which again became a verbal attack against the central office of the universal Church.
According to L'Espresso, Cardinal Maradiaga receives $ 41,600 a month from the Catholic University of Tegucigalpa , of which he is the Grand Chancellor. In December, he even received $ 64,200 as a "Christmas present". In 2015 alone, the total amount that Maradiaga received for his "services" as Grand Chancellor amounted to "nearly $ 600,000." The Office of the "Grand Chancellor" is automatically linked to that of the Archbishop and has the purpose of ensuring the solidarity of the University with the Church. The office has primarily representative functions and also control oversight. Work or services are not associated with it. The payments to Cardinal Maradiaga are an "extra" to his ordinary income, which  the cardinal as the highest official has availed to himself to a certain extent. You could also say self service.

Maradiaga had already been accused in the summer of 2016, following DC Leaks revelations, in connection with the Pope's visit to the United States in 2015, to have concluded deal with the left-wing activist and billionaire multi-billionaire George SorosA payment of $ 650,000 from Soros for financing the Pope's visit is attested. Since then, the question has been raised as to which influence Soros and his network were able to exert on the Pope's visit. It was speculated that Pope Francis was silent in return for topics such as the mass murder of unborn children through abortion and "gay marriage", two "holy cows" of the political left.
Maradiaga also proved to be a particularly keen club-swingers against any criticism of the administration of Pope Francis. He was particularly underhanded against the Cardinals who presented Pope Francis in autumn 2016 with the Dubia (doubt) to the controversial post-synodal letter Amoris laetitiaMaradiaga's speech for Italian Switzerland's television was a shameful train wreck, for which the Honduran neither apologized nor did Pope Francis demand such from him. Maradiaga had said:
"First and foremost, I think they did not read Amoris laetitia, because unfortunately that is the case! I know the four and say: you are already retired. How come they say nothing to those who make weapons? Some are in countries that produce and sell weapons for the genocide that takes place in Syria - for example. Why? I do not want to be, let's say, too harsh: only God alone knows the conscience of men and the inner motives, but seen from the outside, this seems to me a new pharisaism. They were wrong, they better do something else.

Child Porn in the Pentagon: As Usual, Abject Silence

Edit: we sometimes go over to Henry Makow, and came upon this story about large numbers of Pentagon employees accessing child pornography.  Perhaps some will remember a similar story that made the rounds about allegations of pornography use at the Vatican, involving depraved, but still legal images.   There are about 800 permanent employees at the Vatican, but none of the reports, although they were eager to denounce the supposed hypocrisy of the Vatican, didn't actually give any numbers.

Take on the other hand, the over 800 cases of actual downloading of child pornography at the Pentagon.  Try 5,200. Although much more glaring, and even illegal, the story hasn't gotten the same traction as a salacious story about the Vatican.  Still less were there any calls for a leadership change among the powers that be in our "Democratically" elected government.

What's especially interesting in recent reports pointing the finger at men in the media, is that more than 10,000 men reported being sexually assaulted in the military. It would be interesting to know the incidence of males preying on males.

As far as we know there has been nothing but silence on this:

At present, for all we can determine, this story was utterly buried back in 2011.

Catholic University of Leuven Withdraws Bishops' Voting Right

The five episcopal board members will only undertake an advisory function in the future, but may not decide on scientific projects like stem cell research.

Brussels/Leuven (  In Belgium the Catholic University of Leuven has revoked its voting rights on the highest board of the University.  The five bishop members of the board will play only an advisory role in the future,  but may not decide over scientific projects like stem cell research, reported the Belgian media of the University's  leadership.  Among the 30 persons included on the board also belongs the President of the Belgian Bishops' Conference, Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard von Mechelen-Brüssel.

The University explained in reports, that this decision took place after long consideration. The Catholic University was indeed founded by the Bishops, but now according to its new mission statement will continue independently regardless. For that reason the word "Catholic" in the name of the University also comes under discussion. The current board decided to use the official designation KU Leuven. The >>K<< should in any case not be obligatory. Internationally, the name "University of Leuven" will be used.

According to reports, the University stressed its independence in its new mission statement. An independent administration is an essential precondition for academic freedom.

The reason for the initiative was brought among other things by statements of Archbishop Leonard in 2010. The Bishops' President had described AIDS as a consequence of misconduct and described it as a form of >>imminent justice<<.

Germany's Catholic Publisher 'Weltbild' Sells Sadomasochistic Tripe

Who can wonder?  In the area of sadomasochism the German cringer and Church-persecutor Bishops have no limits.

(, Augsburg)  Since the 9th of July the English publication of  the pornographic "Shades of Grey" is available in German.

The violence dominated piece of tripe has appeared at the tripe publisher 'Goldman'

The private fantasies of a house wife

The author of the book is Britin Erika Leonard (49), who is also known as E.L. James.

She is the mother of two sons and worked briefly for a television broadcaster.

Time Magazine indentified Mrs. Leonard in 2012 as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

The more primitive, the better

From 2009, Mrs. Leonard published her tripe on the Internet.  The it appeared in a small publisher in Australia.

Since April she has been operating from a US publisher in grand style.

In English there are already 10 million copies that have been sold.

Depraved History

The porn involves a literature student (21) who becomes enslaved to a millionaire (27).

The millionaire was abused as a child and is psychologically disturbed.

The book excessively describes the violence, with which the student is inflicted.

Sado-Rubbish in 'Weltbild' branch

In German the book is also available from one of the affiliates of 'Weltbild'.

At the same time the publisher has distanced itself then as it writes in its website:

"The description of the oppression women in this book is contrary to the world- and human image, which we want to portray as a book seller."

This hypocritical distancing will hardly interest anyone.

On the website of '', which belongs to 'Weltbild' in any case, the tripe is available without a hypocrisy warning.

Slaves of the Market

A speaker of 'Weltbild' sees that her publisher for the Old Liberal 'Katholischen Nachrichtenagentur' (Catholic Information Agency)  is in a dilemma.

The sadomasochistic book is 'omnipresent' on the market.

'Weltbild' will not promote the title and its distribution in any way.

They have distanced themselves from its content and given critics room.

But it will be sold all the same.
