Hypocrisy of Popery: "Free Women From Slavery of Prostitution." Yet Roman Catholicism, the Largest Sex Trafficking Ring

 

While Pope Francis and Roman Catholicism present themselves to the world as moral authorities, given the church’s reprehensible and sordid history as well as the recent scandals it is involved in, neither one is in a position to speak on any issue involving morality.  However, amidst the ongoing sex abuse perpetrated by the clergy, from the lowest to highest levels, Pope Francis continues to represent himself as a voice for the voiceless, an advocate for the oppressed. From Vatican News, “Pope Francis: Free women from the slavery of prostitution. Pope Francis contributes the preface to a new book on human trafficking, entitled ‘Women crucified. The shame of human trafficking as told from the street.’”[1] The article continues, “Pope Francis goes on to affirm that: ‘any form of prostitution is a reduction into slavery, a criminal act, a disgusting vice that confuses love-making with venting one's instincts by torturing a defenceless woman.’ Prostitution, writes Pope Francis, is ‘a wound to the collective consciousness.’ He describes as ‘pathological’ the idea that a woman can be exploited like a commodity to be used and thrown away. Prostitution is ‘a disease of humanity,’ he adds, ‘a wrong way of thinking about society.’ Freeing these slaves, says Pope Francis, 'is a gesture of mercy, a duty for all people of good will.’ ‘Individuals and institutions cannot remain indifferent before their cry of pain,’ concludes the Pope. ‘No one should turn away or wash their hands of the innocent blood that is shed on the roads of the world.’”[2]

 

This disguising and posturing himself as one concerned with the plight of others is nothing uncharacteristic for Jesuits, they would take on any role or guise to accomplish their agenda. Speaking of the Jesuits, Ellen White in The Great Controversy writes, “There was no crime too great for them to commit, no deception too base for them to practice, no disguise too difficult for them to assume. Vowed to perpetual poverty and humility, it was their studied aim to secure wealth and power, to be devoted to the overthrow of Protestantism, and the re-establishment of the papal supremacy. When appearing as members of their order, they wore a garb of sanctity, visiting prisons and hospitals, ministering to the sick and the poor, professing to have renounced the world, and bearing the sacred name of Jesus, who went about doing good. But under this blameless exterior the most criminal and deadly purposes were often concealed.”[3] 

 

Pope Francis’ forward is highly offensive to the countless victims of sex abuse and exploitation, not to mention the victims of physical, psychological and other abuses that Pope Francis was complicit in from Argentina to the Vatican. Let us look at how the Bible delineates Roman Catholicism which makes very clear not only her identity but also the abominations that characterize her very nature, specifically as it relates to its murders, tortures, and slavery. Firstly, it should be noted that in scripture, the Roman Catholic Church is described as a whore, the Mother of Harlots who is guilty of fornication and adultery (see Revelation 17:1, 2 and 5). Furthermore, it is also called Babylon in Revelation 14:8, Revelation 17:5 and Revelation 18:2-7. Speaking specifically to the issue of slavery, Revelation 18:11 and 13 make it clear that Babylon, Popery, deals in slave trafficking. “And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her [Babylon]; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more…And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.”  You read it correctly, “the slaves and souls of men.” Make no mistake, we are not only talking about the Dark Ages wherein individuals were enslaved by the chains of darkness and superstitions and made literal slaves of torture and abuse because of standing for liberty of conscience; neither are we referring to the Roman Catholic Church’s involvement in the slave trade, we are talking about modern sex slavery in the Roman Catholic Church of which Pope Francis admits. Look at this CBS News headline, “Pope Francis confirms priests' abuse of nuns included 'sexual slavery.’”[4] Read this in horror: “Nuns have suffered and are still suffering sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests and bishops, and have even been held as sexual slaves, Pope Francis confirmed on Tuesday. The abuse was so severe in one case that an entire congregation of nuns was dissolved by former Pope Benedict.The scope of the abuse of nuns by clergy members first came to light with the publication at the beginning of February of the monthly Vatican magazine 'Women Church World.' The edition included Francis' own take on the scandal -- long known about by the Vatican but virtually never discussed-- in which he blamed the unchecked power wielded by priests and higher clergy across the Catholic Church for such crimes…The pope confirmed that the abuse of nuns was an ongoing problem.”[5]

The countless number of children that have been sexually abused and assaulted by the Roman Catholic Church were slaves to the vile lusts of their perpetrators; and for the Roman Catholic hierarchy to orchestrate such a system of strategic cover-ups gives evidence to the fact of this loathsome slavery. Consider the following, “Despite government inspections and supervision, Catholic clergy had, across decades, violently tormented thousands of children. The report found that children held in orphanages and reformatory schools were treated no better than slaves—in some cases, sex slaves. Rape and molestation of boys were ‘endemic.' Other reports were issued about other institutions, including parish churches and schools, and homes for unwed mothers—the notorious 'Magdalene Laundries,’ where girls and women were condemned to lives of coercive servitude. The ignominy of these institutions was laid out in plays and documentary films…Not only priests had behaved despicably. So had nuns…Church authorities had successfully silenced the victims, deflected law enforcement, and shielded the predators. The Pennsylvania report was widely taken to be a conclusive adjudication, but grand-jury findings are not verdicts. Still, this record of testimony and investigation was staggering. The charges told of a ring of pedophile priests who gave many of their young targets the gift of a gold cross to wear, so that the other predator priests could recognize an initiated child who would not resist an overture. ‘This is the murder of a soul,’ said one victim who testified before the grand jury.”[6] The harrowing article, from a former priest, one on the inside continues, “It was reportedly common for such priests to sponsor abortions when the nuns became pregnant. “It’s true,” Francis said calmly. “There are priests and bishops who have done that.” Nuns have come forward in India to charge priests with rape. In April, a bishop was charged with the rape and illegal confinement of a nun, whom he allegedly assaulted regularly over two years, in the southern state of Kerala…In February, a Washington Post report suggested that early in his pontificate, Francis learned about the systematic priestly abuse of institutionalized deaf children in Argentina, decades ago. The abuse had originally been brought to light not by Church officials but by civil authorities. The deaf victims reported that they were discouraged from learning sign language, but that one hand sign often used by the abusive priests was the forefinger to the lips: Silence.”[7]

 

How did and is Pope Francis responding to the sex slavery within his own Catholic Church? “A signal of what to expect from the meeting of bishops in Rome came in February from Francis himself, who, on the eve of the gathering, turned on those he called “accusers.” He said, with pointed outrage, “Those who spend their lives accusing, accusing, and accusing are … the friends, cousins, and relatives of the devil.” His spray-shot diatribe seemed aimed as much at victims seeking justice as at the right-wing critics who have clearly gotten to him…Francis proclaimed “an all-out battle” against priestly abuse and said the Church must protect children “from ravenous wolves.” But he said nothing about who breeds such wolves or who sets them loose. Worse, he deflected the specifically Catholic nature of this horror by noting that child abuse and sexual malfeasance happen everywhere, as if the crimes of Catholic clergy are not so bad…Pope Francis expresses 'shame and sorrow' over the sexual abuse of children by priests, yet he instinctively defends perpetrators against their accusers. He has called clericalism “a perversion of the Church.” But what does he actually mean by that? He denounces the clerical culture in which abuse has found its niche but does nothing to dismantle it. In his responses, he embodies that culture.”[8]

 

Seventh-day Adventist pioneer and author Ellet Waggoner wrote the following regarding Roman Catholicism and slavery, which is present truth for today, “enough occasionally comes to the light to show that in many convents and Roman Catholic asylums a regular system of slavery exists.”[9]

 

Think about what Pope Francis has written in the foreword of the book and what he has has done to defend pedophiles while preserving the structure of sex slavery in the Roman Catholic Church.  Is Pope Francis qualified to call for the abolition of sex-slavery? Absolutely not!

 

This system of iniquity, called in scripture, “the abominations of the earth,” Roman Catholicism is being exposed for its true character. Our duty is clear, we must continue to expose the wickedness of the man of sin and call people out of this synagogue of Satan, and if you happen to be one enslaved by the deceptions of Popery, you must heed the call of Revelation 18:2 and 4: “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
