The New York Times reported today: “Pope Benedict XVI was faulted in a report over his handling of sexual abuse cases when he was an archbishop in Munich. A newly released report by a law firm said the former pope failed to discipline priests in at least four cases of sexual abuse accusations in Germany.”

The main German news program “Tagesschau,” a public service medium, reported today: “497 victims, 235 perpetrators and a balance of horror: The expert report on abuse in the Archdiocese of Munich heavily incriminates high-ranking church officials – including Pope Emeritus Benedict and Cardinal Marx.”

To understand the full extent of the crimes committed by the catholic church in Germany alone, one must know that the Archdiocese of Munich-Freising covers only a small part of Germany (see graphic on left).

In their two-thousand-year history, the Christian churches have almost consistently held the greatest power that has ever existed. To this day – as they have “reinvented” themselves again and again under varying names – they are mainly responsible for the greatest crimes against humanity ever committed. This is a historically established fact.

Any political party and organization with such a criminal background would have been banned long ago – just as Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party was banned after the war.

How the churches survive their inhuman crimes is shown by only a small example from the American South. Most of today’s churchgoers probably don’t know anything about it – and those who do know, don’t want to admit it:

In the United States of America, the Southern Baptist Convention had been founded as a church of slaveholders in 1845. The slaves were told not to worry, because they would have it better in a second life.

Today, the Southern Baptist Convention is the largest Protestant denomination in the USA.

To the present day, the demagogues of these churches have been spreading the nonsense of the existence of a devil as an instrument of intimidation and as the cause of the unsuccessfulness of their god in improving this world. In the history of the world, religion has never been anything but a special form of superstition and has always been used as such by the authorities to keep their subjects in line. Religion is the most dangerous kind of superstition.

“God is a hypothesis, and, as such, stands in need of proof: the burden of proof rests on the theist.” Quote: Percy Bysshe Shelley
