Is the Vatican Strictly a "Religious Organization?"

The answer to that question is quite simple, and it is an unequivocal “NO!” While none of us (who are rational) would deny that there is a Roman Catholic “Church” – a “religious” organization and system that has over one BILLION adherents, we also must recognize that there is a historically documented GEOPOLITICAL entity known as the “Vatican State”, or “Vatican City”. According to Webster’s New World Dictionary, Second College Edition, “Vatican City” is an “independent papal state constituted in 1929 as an enclave in Rome…” The Vatican State (or “City”) has diplomatic relations with most of the nations of the world!

The Papacy, which has long sat atop the authoritative, hierarchical religious system known as the Roman Catholic Church, has a well-documented geopolitical history of ruling for many centuries over the monarchs of Europe. In fact, the Papacy [i.e., Papal Rome] in essence was, and still is, the “ghost” that arose out of the “ashes” of the Imperial Pagan Roman Empire.

For the last four centuries plus, Papal Rome’s Jesuit Order has been one of the most powerful organizations on the GEOPOLITICAL scene. Boyd Barrett, an ex-Jesuit, tells us:

“The Jesuit Order at last reached the pinnacle of its power and prestige in the early eighteenth century [i.e., the early 1700s]. It had become more influential and more wealthy than any other organization in the world. It held a position in world affairs that no oath-bound group of men has ever held before or since… ‘Nearly all the Kings and Sovereigns of Europe had only Jesuits as directors of their consciences [i.e., as confessor-priests], so that the whole of Europe appeared to be governed by Jesuits only.’” (1927; using a short quote by Jesuit Cordara)

J. Wayne Laurens, American historian and author of the book The Crisis: Or, the Enemies of America Unmasked, lets us know about the political side of the Vatican and the Jesuit Order – and how they USE “religion” as a “mask” for advancing their political agenda:

“But we recognize in the Roman Catholic priesthood, and the Jesuit brotherhood, two distinct political organizations, united in purpose and using religion as a mask for political purpose, as they always have done in all ages and countries.”

Author Avro Manhattan, in his book Murder in the Vatican (1985), lets us know that the Vatican is a very powerful GEOPOLITICAL “creature”:

“The Vatican is a superpower – on a par with the USA and Soviet Russia. Indeed, since at times it can act as a formulator of the policies of both, it can be reckoned as the paramount superpower of our times.
Its adherents, a massive portion of mankind, nearing a billion [Ed. Note: it’s now over a billion], can be made to operate in every corner of the world. [There are] sixty million [Roman Catholics] within the USA herself. [Ed. Note: Counting illegal aliens, it’s a lot more than that!]
…Therefore the Vatican is a superpower in its own right. Indeed, because of its duality as a political and as a religious center, it can outbid the other two [superpowers].” (Page 5)

The following quote by Hector Macpherson, author of the book The Jesuits in History, lets us know how terrible it was for mankind when the Roman Catholic Church moved into the geopolitical arena (i.e., the “civil sphere”):

“Had the Roman Catholic Church remained a purely religious organization like any other sect, the world would have been spared centuries of evil [Ed. Note: such as Papal Rome’s “holy” Inquisition, “holy” crusades, “holy” wars, and religious genocide]. But in the course of its development the Romish Church, through its Popes, entered the civil sphere and aspired to universal monarchy.
In the fatal year 800, when Charlemagne was crowned Emperor of the Romans by [Pope] Leo III, there was set upon Western Europe the Papacy, a colossal system whose object is despotic rule of man and society in all spheres, sacred and secular. The Papacy claimed not only to possess the ‘Keys of Heaven’, but also to rule the earth. The pope came to be regarded as the sole representative of Deity on earth, and from him must the empire be held.
…In its egotistical blindness, and intoxicated with the fumes of sacerdotal conceit, the Papacy set itself in opposition to the spirit of nationality, which in the Middle Ages was beginning to create order out of the disorders caused by the fall of the Roman Empire. Foiled in its endeavors to reign unchecked over rising nationalities the Papacy attempted to rule through monarchs devoted to the [Roman Catholic] Church.” (Pages 108, 109)

The Jesuit Order (one of the main political arms of Papal Rome) not only controls its Jesuit “soldiers”, but also the Papacy itself, the powerful and wealthy Knights of Malta, higher-level Knights of Columbus, and the highest levels of Freemasonry. The Jesuits, “masters of politics”, have quite a “track record” of infiltrating and subverting governments. Canadian historian J.E.C. Shepherd tells us the following about expulsions of the Jesuits (due to their political intrigues) in his book The Babington Plot: Jesuit Intrigue in Elizabethan England (1987):

“Between 1555 and 1931 the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] was expelled from at least 83 countries, city-states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversive plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [i.e., Thomas J. Campbell]. …Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection.” (1987; Page 12)

Do the Jesuits have a lot of POLITICAL power in the USA? Here’s what Jeremiah J. Crowley (Irishman; ex-priest in the Roman Catholic Church; author of the book Romanism: Menace to the Nation) tells us concerning the Jesuit Order:

“Today they [i.e., the Jesuits] are stronger in the United States than they ever were in any of the countries of Europe which expelled them as a menace to the government.” (1912)

M.F. Cusack (Ex-nun of Kenmore; author of The Black Pope; 1896) tells us about Papal and Jesuit “politics” in the following two quotes from her book:

“…The Jesuits are the only religious order in the Church of Rome…which has lain under the ban of the [“White”] Pope, or which has been expelled from any country because of its interference in politics. Hence we may expect to find that to obtain political power forms a main feature in the plans of the Society [of Jesus – i.e., the Jesuit Order].” (The Black Pope; 1896)

“The fact is that very few Protestants [Ed. Note: or other Christians] have realized how entirely Rome is a political church, and that she always makes her political advancement her first object.” (The Black Pope; 1896)

The American [Roman] Catholic hierarchy and the Jesuit Order are very active POLITICALLY in the United States of America. Author and journalist Paul Blanchard tells us the following about Roman Catholic POLITICAL power in the USA in his book American Freedom and Catholic Power (1949):

“There is no doubt that the American [Roman] Catholic hierarchy has entered the political arena, and that it is becoming more and more aggressive in extending the frontiers of [Roman] Catholic authority into the fields of medicine, education, and foreign policy… As we shall see in this book [Ed. Note: American Freedom and Catholic Power], the [Roman] Catholic hierarchy in this country [i.e., the USA] has great power as a pressure group, and no editor, politician, publisher, merchant or motion-picture producer can express defiance openly – or publicize documented facts – without risking his future.” (1949)

F. Tupper Saussy, author of the book Rulers of Evil: Useful Knowledge About Governing Bodies (1999), tells us the following about Roman Catholic POLITICAL power in modern America:

“What [Professor Carol A.] Brown [of the University of Massachusetts] had learned from Carl Bernstein, I [i.e., author F. Tupper Saussy] had discovered for myself over several years of private investigation: the papacy really does run United States foreign policy… Yes, [Carl] Bernstein noted that the leading American players behind the Reagan/Vatican conspiracy, to a man, were ‘devout Roman Catholics’ – namely,

William Casey – Director, CIA [Ed. Note: And a papal Knight of Malta];
Richard Allen – National Security Advisor;
Judge William Clark – National Security Advisor;
Alexander Haig – Secretary of State [Ed. Note: And a papal Knight of Malta];
Vernon Walters – Ambassador-at-Large; and,
William Wilson – Ambassador to the Vatican State.
But the reporter neglected to mention that the entire Senate Foreign Relations committee was governed by Roman Catholics as well. Specifically, Senators
· Joseph Biden – Subcommittee on European Affairs;
· Paul Sarbanes – International Economic Policy, Trade, Oceans, and Environment;
· Daniel P. Moynihan – Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs;
· John Kerry – Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Communications; and,
· Christopher Dodd – Western Hemisphere and Peace Corps Affairs.”
(Rulers of Evil; 1999; Pages 1, 2)

“In fact, when the ‘Holy Alliance’ story hit the stands [in 1992], there was virtually no arena of federal legislative activity, according to ‘The 1992 World Almanac of US Politics’, that was not directly controlled by a Roman Catholic senator or representative. The committees and subcommittees of the United States Senate and House of Representatives governing commerce, communications and telecommunications, energy, medicine, health, education and welfare, human services, consumer protection, finance and financial institutions, transportation, labor and unemployment, hazardous materials, taxation, bank regulation, currency and monetary policy, oversight of the Federal Reserve System, commodity prices, rents services, small business administration, urban affairs, European affairs, Near Eastern and South Asian affairs, terrorism / narcotics / international communications, international economic / trade / oceans / environmental policy, insurance, housing, community development, federal loan guarantees, economic stabilization measures (including wage and price controls), gold and precious metals transactions, agriculture, animal and forestry industries, rural issues, nutrition, price supports, Food for Peace, agricultural exports, soil conservation, irrigation, stream channelization, flood control, minority enterprise, environment and pollution, appropriations, defense, foreign operations, vaccines, drug labeling and packaging, drug and alcohol abuse, inspection and certification of fish and processed food, use of vitamins and saccharin, national health insurance proposals, human services, legal services, family relations, the arts and humanities, the handicapped, and aging – in other words, virtually every aspect of secular life in America – came under the chairmanship of one of these Roman Catholic laypersons:

Vatican Council II’s ‘Constitution on the Church’ (1964) instructs [Roman Catholic] politicians to use their secular offices to advance the cause of Roman Catholicism.” (Rulers of Evil; 1999; Pages 2, 3)

“An updating of this list will not reflect a significant change in the presence of Roman Catholic laypersons in the higher legislative reaches. According to the ‘Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities’, in the 106th Congress there are 40 ‘Jesuit alumni’ who graduated from 17 Jesuit institutions [of higher learning]. There are 5 alumni in the U.S. Senate and 35 alumni in the House of Representatives. Out of these 40 alumni, 23 received graduate or professional degrees from Jesuit universities. [Jesuit] Georgetown University has the most graduates, boasting 15 alumni in the U.S. Congress.” (Rulers of Evil; 1999; Page 303)

Of course, we also have a FINANCIAL entity known as the “Vatican Bank”. The Vatican is into international banking and finance “big time”. Avro Manhattan, in his book The Vatican Billions (Chick Publications, 1983), tells us (in the following six quotations) about the enormous wealth of Papal Rome:

“The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, [and] with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions in shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines [IBM], T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the USA alone.” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

“In a statement published in connection with a bond prospectus, the Boston archdiocese [of the Roman Catholic Church] listed its assets at Six Hundred and Thirty-five Million ($635,891,004), which is 9.9 times its liabilities. This leaves a net worth of Five Hundred and Seventy-one Million dollars ($571,704,953). It is not difficult to discover the truly astonishing wealth of the [Roman Catholic] Church, once we add the riches of the twenty-eight archdioceses and 122 dioceses of the USA, some of which are even wealthier than that of Boston.” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

“Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the [Roman] Catholic Church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely ‘that his church probably ranks second only to the United States government in total annual purchase.’ Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated [Roman] Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. ‘The Catholic Church’, he said, ‘must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States government.’” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

“The [Roman] Catholic Church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. …The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican’s financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

“The Vatican’s treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. …But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the [Roman] Catholic Church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

“The [Roman] Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.” (The Vatican Billions; 1983)

Michael de Semlyen, author of the book All Roads Lead to Rome?: The Ecumenical Movement, tells us the following about Vatican banking scandals:

“Vatican scandals involving large-scale fraud and corruption and complicity in a cover-up have simply been shrugged off. Archbishop Marcinkus [Ed. Note: then-head of the Vatican Bank and at that time a bishop], who was at the center of it all, was protected by the Pope [i.e., John Paul II] for more than seven years – and the Italian state authorities [were] somehow rendered helpless…
Roman Catholic Oxford Professor of Logic, Michael Dummett, accused the Pope [i.e., John Paul II] of complicity in a cover-up to protect [Archbishop] Marcinkus. ‘The Sunday Telegraph’ 15th March, 1987, reporting from the Catholic Weekly ‘The Tablet’, said that Professor Dummett spoke of ‘the Vatican Bank entangled with complicated practices from which the most pungent stink of corruption arises. These practices involved other banks, the Mafia, and the seamiest type of Freemasonry, culminating in what was possibly the bizarre suicide, but more probably the grotesque murder of an Italian banker in London.’
…The Milan [Court] verdict has brought blunt accusations of complicity in Calvi’s murder leveled at [Archbishop] Marcinkus by Calvi’s widow, who claims that her husband had told her shortly before his death: ‘The priests want me dead’. Marcinkus resigned as head of the Vatican Bank, but [he] remained under the pope’s [i.e., John Paul II’s] protection and enjoyed Vatican immunity. Attempts by the Italian authorities to put him on trial with the others accused of fraud were brushed aside by the Vatican; the Pope simply refused to hand him over.” (All Roads Lead to Rome?; 1993; Pages 71, 72)

There is a lot of evidence proving that the Vatican is THE wealthiest organization on planet Earth! And, a lot of Vatican money is used for controlling and manipulating politicians and governments in many parts of the world in order to advance the Jesuit-controlled Vatican’s New World Order agenda of a one-world government and a one-world religion to be ruled despotically from “behind the scenes” by the Jesuit Superior General – the “Black Pope”!
