  1. Just 70 yrears ago ROME & Catholic Italy had just attacked & launched a massive, hellish WAR on its neighbors.


    Butchering & murdering Millions & MILLIONS of innocent peacefull people...JUST for not JOINING up with HITLER ~


    for NO REASON...... MURDERING Thousands of Africans, Egyptians , Greece & others ...

    ROME & Catholic Italy had JUST Joined up with Hitler,

    IT took 22,000 { twenty two thousand}.....]

    US American tooops DYING, IN ITALY, for

    the USA to defeat Catholic Italy....

    ~~~~~~~~~Millions of Catholics IN Germany & Italy..... murdered Millions of OTHER CATHOLICS & Non Catholics round the planet..

    Simply for not joining up with The Catholic Hitler..

    This was just 70 yrs ago.....

    What is the Lure & thrill and unified UNBROKEN chain of unity and love and respect that the catholic church has bestowed upon the earth..

    Are we missing something... ?

  2. You seem to be missing quite a bit, if I may answer your question there. The Catholic Church did not attack anyone. Italy and the Catholic Church are not synonymous. Mussolini was a dictator who held control of Italy and ran it. He did not consult with the Church to decide his military moves.

    Pope Pius XI was critical of many aspects of Mussolini's rule.

    The Church was also no fan of Hitler.

  3. The Fact is THE Catholic CHURCh PUT Hitler INTO POWER..

    THE Catholic Church . / VATICAn WAS a Completely DETICATED FAN & Admirer of Hitler.

    THE Catholic Church / VATIcan signed a contract with HITLER~

    Catholics Continue the lie that all these people were praising their Pope for saving some Jews when in fact THERE is not a SINGLE Shread of ANY Evidence of the POPE saving ANY jews.


    Catholics have NOTHING but unfactual.,/ inventions….fantasy books..

    & MOST BLASPHEMOUSLY & HORIDLY on the word of either ignorant or desperate…..people…( Jews at the time..

    JEWS .....

    in an Anti semite ,satanic ,,Italy…..).looking for acceptance back into Italian life after the war…

    THEY WOULD HAVE SAID….anything…to be accepted in Italy….and given a hope for a halfway decent life…
    THIS IS ALL IT IS

    This CONTRACT Demanded ALL GermaN BISHOPS/ SWEAR on the HOLY GOSPELS & on GOD ..complete AND TOTAL loyality to HITLER.

    HITLER'S Concordat WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH (1933

    See .ART. # 16 http://www.newadvent.org/library/docs_ss33co.htm

    THE VATICAN also FORCED the German Center Catholic Political PARTY to Pull OUT of The Elections to ALLOW Hitler to WIN with OVERWHELMING Victory.

    Hitler WAS THE REAL POPE.....

    Hitler was MORE powerfull than ANY POPE of the 20 th CENTRUY...

    Hitler COMMANDED the Entire ROMAN CATHOLIC Italian Military.

    Along with the ENTIRE CATHOLIC & Protestant Church in Germany.

    The Catholic Church Never Helped a single Jew in WW ll.
