April 20, 1939 Archbishop Orsenigo celebrated Hitler's Birthday party. The celebrations were initiated by Pope Pacelli (Pio XII) and became a tradition. Every April 20th, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin went to offer "the warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the German Diocese", and added that "fervent prayers that the Catholics in Germany are sending to heaven upon their altars"

Capellán con una unidad de ametralladora La mayoría de las guerras justificadas por razones religiosas. Por supuesto, si un soldado se sentia inquieto por el sacrificio que otros hacian, siempre podían recurrir a un capellán que le explicaria pacientemente que el asesinato está permitido por Dios y sobre la moralidad de la guerra justa. A continuación, podría dar algunos ejemplos bíblicos de como Dios ordenó los asesinatos. Y entonces él podría decirles que Jesús los perdona y enviarlos al cielo si se llegase a morir.

I recently read these two books:

"The Pope's Jews" and "The Scarlet & the Black"

 Both of these books exonerate the Vatican and two Popes, Pius XI and Pius XII, from charges of supporting Hitler during WWII.

 "The Scarlet & the Black" was made into a movie starring Gregory Peck as the Irish Priest, Hugh O'Flaherty, who was at the Vatican and made it his mission to rescue as many Allied POWs and Jews as he could.  He risked his life to do it, right under the nose of the Nazi who had pledged to kill him.  The book has a very remarkable ending.

"The Pope's Jews" also has O'Flaherty in it, but focuses more on Pius XII and what he did to rescue Jews from the Nazis by providing not only money but fake baptism certificates and visas as well.

Well written and very informative.

TRINITARIANS, USING THEIR CORE DOCTRINES AS THEIR MORAL GUIDE ... over the years, have shed enough human blood for all the Navies of all the Countries in the world to sail upon with ease .... slaughtering EACH OTHER as well as all those unlucky enough to be in their way.

THE MOUNTAINS OF BODIES OF THE INNOCENT .... bodies of a half BILLION men, women and children, murdered in warfare, and by hardship, starvation,  deprivation and disease, in Europe alone in the past 1700 years PROVE the Trinitarian Doctrine is False, Bogus, and is an affront and insult to God, and a sin against humanity.

Remember .... Adolph Hitler loved dogs, and built magnificent architectures and road projects ....

BUT HE WAS STILL ADOLPH HITLER.

And the Trinitarians in Germany supported this murder.

And the Trinitarian Churches celebrated his birthday as if Christ had returned.

And streams of columns and rows of Trinitarian Clergy, all dressed in black ... marched down the streets of Germany, past reviewing stands, turned their heads to face the stand, and gave the Hitler Salute.

WORDS ARE MEANINGLESS in the face of such FACTS, which prove what theology is NOT really Christian.

Trinitarianism, by its works PROVES it is evil ... and WRONG.

.... and playing with a million words will NOT change that.

Pope Pius XII did everything to help the Nazis, and nothing to save the Jews

Amazing how this topic has been shared ZERO times after more than 2 years on this forum.

After watching this video you will rethink your "inaction"

      History testifies that far from "giving us the bible" the Catholic church did everything in its power to see the holy scriptures were kept away from people and accessible in a dead language to a chosen few.
      The priceless Codex Sinaiticus was being used my monks to kindle fires and would no doubt have all gone up in flames had Tischendorf not saved them. So much for safekeeping the bible!
      Copies and translations that were made were more often than not DESPITE, not because of Church authorities and we only have the bible because honest men and women were willing to risk their lives and face the wrath of the church in order to keep it alive and get it into the hands of those that had a right to read it.
      Hunting translators like dogs and executing bible readers (including ordinary working men and women) like the vilest of criminals, no single organization on earth has put forth more effort to ensure the bible is read by as few people as humanly possible and just because Catholic authorities eventually bowed to the will of the masses and crumbled under the pressure of the printing press it does not make it the champion of biblical production. Far from it, if the dark ages hadn't given way to the likes of Tyndale, Wycliffe and other heros of history, there would be three copies of the holy scriptures in Greek or Latin locked in a Vatican safe somewhere and which a fire or some other misfortune would have eventually destroyed leaving mankind all the poorer but the Church more than content with a job well done.
      Catholics can spin and re-write history as much as they like but there are the graves of honest men and women all over Europe that testify to her "love" of the bible.

      Watchtower criticises other religious groups for colluding with Hitler, whilst Jehovah's Witnesses were imprisoned for their refusal to compromise their standards. What is not admitted is that Rutherford initially praised Hitler for his stance against Jews and the Anglo/American empire.
      One of the groups that Hitler sent to concentration camps were Jehovah's Witnesses. They were forced to endure unspeakable atrocities and many lost their lives. The individual actions of many Witnesses are commendable and the Watchtower holds up this part of their history in great esteem. What is not discussed is the hypocritical actions of Rutherford in the lead up to these events.
      Early in 1933, the Watchtower office in Berlin was closed and Jehovah's Witnesses were banned in many German states. This was due to the refusal of Jehovah's Witnesses to swear loyalty to the government or to serve in its armed forces.
      In an attempt to appease Hitler into lifting the ban, Rutherford instigated a Declaration of Facts and sent a Letter to Hitler discussing the Watchtower's support of the Nazi regime.
      Current Watchtower references provide a deceptive portrayal of these documents, through selective quoting. The Proclaimer's book mentions that Rutherford wrote a letter to Hitler under the context of "facing Nazi oppression", in which the Watchtower Society is made to sound as if they were firmly against the Nazi regime.
      It is quite surprising to find the opposite is true, which can be identified when reading the content of Rutherford's 1933 letter to Hitler and the Declaration of Facts.
      Letter to Hitler
      Russell, founder of the Watchtower, was a

Rutherford initially continued such support, but changed by the 1930's to a bigoted, anti-Semitic stance. During the time of Rutherford, Witnesses became known as a religion of hate, due to the Watchtower's tirade of insults against other Churches and governments. The Catholic Church come under the greatest condemnation and bought this to the attention of the Nazi government, petitioning against the Watchtower Society. In 1933, the Nazi government banned the Watchtower's German operations.
      In an effort to overturn the ban, Rutherford sent a Letter and a Declaration to Hitler, in which he praises Hitler for his anti-Anglo/American campaign and his stance against the Jews.

       
      A copy of the letter in German.
      Following is part of an English translation of the Letter to Hitler.
      The letter mentions Hitler's "just principles," quoting from section 24 of Das Program der NSDAP (The Nazi's Platform of the National Socialist German Workers Party).
      Rutherford further compromised Watchtower principles but offering that, "We want to continue to live up to the prohibition imposed upon us," that is, they would stop preaching in Germany, provided the ban was lifted that would allow them to "meet for prayer and church service".
      Click Letter to Hitler  for a translation of the full letter in PDF format.
      The Yearbook 1974 briefly refers to this letter, along with the Declaration of Facts.
      In light of the contents of the official letter and Declaration sent to Hitler, the Watchtower's 2011 comment mocking other Churches is nothing short of hypocritical.
      Declaration of Facts
      Rutherford and Knorr organized a public convention in Berlin on 25th June, 1933 to release a "Declaration of Facts," being pronouncing at the German convention, and distributed in letter format. This outlined Watchtower's support of the German governments stance against Jews.
      The convention hall was decked with swastikas and the program was opened with Song 64, a song from the Bible Student's songbook that had the some melody by Hayden as the German national anthem. Konrad Franke, Germany's Bethel branch overseer later stated his disturbance at seeing the scene for the convention and Rutherford's declaration.
      The Declaration of Facts was reprinted in the Yearbook 1934. It went on in part to state:
      Click here  for an English translation of the full Declaration of Facts in PDF format.
      Rutherford's Letter and Declaration were an effort to appease Hitler, but to no avail - too little, too late.
      With Rutherford's efforts at appeasing Hitler into lifting the Watchtower ban not achieving its aims, Rutherford instead started to antagonise Hitler through his publications.
      These cablegrams read:
      Rutherford send another letter to Hitler, this time threatening Hitler with the punishment of God if the ban on Jehovah's Witnesses was not lifted.

      Rules that the American Catholic sect is giving to their parishioners to get rid of Jehovah's witnesses.
      Would you be able to rebut these almost military standards?
      ________________________________
      Interaction with a Jehovah's witness
      Answer the door. This may seem counter-intuitive to get rid of someone, but the fact is, if you don't answer the door, it's likely to mark you as "no house" and come back in the near future. If you really want to get rid of them, you'll have to answer the door and let them know.
      Interrupt. Sounds rude, but it doesn't have to be. It is likely to deepen your command sequence and it will only be more difficult to get a word Polly interrupt to take control of the conversation.
      When a Jehovah's witness begins to speak, interrupt with an educated gesture: "excuse me" to draw your attention.
      Try to raise your hand and keep it between the two at the chest level with the palm of your hand to the other person and start your interjection with "wait".
      If you wait until the Jehovah's witness asks a question, you can simply reply with: "I would rather not have this conversation".
      Be honest. If you make up a reason not to want to talk to them, you can see this as an invitation to come back another time. This also starts a conversation.
      Be honest and direct with your answer to get your point through and avoid one of your starters of the conversation.
      Avoid making excuses. They are trained to respond to specific protests and may consider coming back in the future if they are too busy right now.
      We politely. Choose very few words to reject your invitation to speak. It's unnecessary to be rude, and arguing will only stimulate the conversation. A simple and polite decline will do the trick.
      Once I get a chance to talk, try a simple, "No, thank you".
      It can also be direct saying, " I'm not interested, thank you."
      Close the door. Don't hit him in the face, but I understand you've been trained to keep the conversation. Once I have rejected, close the door gently. This is important, because, like the caretakers or any lawyer, they are not likely to accept the first, "no" and will do everything possible to return to you.
      Closing the door may be the only way to end the conversation.
      If this feels rude to you, try to say, "I'm sorry" when you close the door.

      The FRANCISCO POPE PRAISES GOD’S WITNESSES WORLDWIDE

      Moving – Pascom Porto Feliz: Catholic Conference discusses increasing Witnesses … What drives so many people to become Jehovah’s Witnesses? This was the question asked by some clerics, as shown by the following quotations. For example, in Bologna, Italy, the ecclesiastical authorities, with the approval of the pope, held a conference to discuss ways to combat the success of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
      The Catholic Church raised a “cry of alarm”, the newspaper La Republica, because every year ten thousand Catholics become Jehovah’s Witnesses. The Jesuit Giuseppe De Rosa said that “the religious point of view the most dangerous are Jehovah’s Witnesses. They come fully trained, and always have the Bible in hand.”
      In an article that deals specifically with Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica said:
      “The first reason for the spread of this movement are the propaganda techniques [ie, in preaching]. On the one hand, the work is thorough, carried from house to house by people who are strictly trained in this work, and are deeply convinced [ …] ”
      “The second reason for the success of TJs is the force of attraction of Jehovah’s message, because it can meet the needs, demands and expectations of the people of our time. First, answers the need for certainty, which is much appreciated at a time where everything is uncertain and unstable. […] Above all, it is an absolutely safe revelation of the future and, therefore, all who accepted, experience freedom from fear and anxiety and can face the future with joy, with ensuring that survive the destruction that will come the great day of God’s judgment on a wicked world, to live in eternal happiness on earth. Second, Jehovah’s message helps to overcome the concern of the individual against the woes of this world, announces that soon will end the unbearable situation of today, and soon, so there will be a new era will be born a new world in which all the wicked will be removed now triumph. […] ”
      “The third reason for the success of TJs is that this movement gives its members a precise identity and strong, and is a place where they were greeted with warmth and a sense of brotherhood and solidarity.”
      The Vatican document analyzed the needs of people today, and the quote above the Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica showed that the message of Jehovah’s Witnesses meet those needs. This also showed Vittorio Messori Catholic writer in his recent book Scommesse sulla morte (a bet on death), who writes: “It makes us think that Jehovah’s Witnesses, is one of the religious denominations of the fastest growing in the world. It is among the religions that are practiced in many countries and perhaps […] is first in terms of fervor, zeal, activism, the ability to make proselytes. ” “And his presence, increasingly pronounced, is not limited to Christian tradition countries, but reaching the whole world, where in the name of Jehovah, and before long, they get results that are superior to those of Catholic missionaries, Protestants and Orthodox, who have worked for centuries. ”
      “This stunning expansive force is incomprehensible only to those who simply do not want to admit that […] course in how to understand the Bible, Jehovah’s Witnesses meet the real needs that other theologies do not meet.” “You can not get around the issue suggesting that the growth of witnesses is because they scare people is precisely the opposite:. Unlike the churches” official “, deny the existence of hell and preach the destruction, disappearance after death to the wicked and unbelieving. This may be an unpleasant prospect, but certainly less frightening than the threat of a terrible pain for all eternity. “Yes, the God of Jehovah’s Witnesses is a loving God, and not one that terrorizes the people .
      The following quote is the Catholic magazine Mondo ERRE March 1986: “It must be said that Jehovah’s Witnesses are the first to live the faith they preach: Do not IRAM, do not smoke, do not accumulate wealth, remain outside the political discussions […] pay taxes. They live a virtuous and honest life, they are happy and helpful. All this has made people appreciate the ”
      I’m glad to know that they have had success in evangelizing them my family is Catholic more from small learn to admire their work in all the earth ….

      HUNGRÍA
       
      BUDAPEST (Hungría). El 11 de diciembre de 2015, el Museo en Memoria del Holocausto de Budapest inauguró una placa conmemorativa en recuerdo de cuatro testigos de Jehová que sufrieron persecución durante el régimen nazi.

      Placa conmemorativa de los cuatro testigos de Jehová ejecutados por los nazis durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial
      Lajos Deli, Antal Hönisch, Bertalan Szabό y János Zsondor fueron ejecutados públicamente en marzo de 1945 por la Cruz Flechada, el partido pronazi húngaro, en las ciudades de Körmend y Sárvár por negarse a realizar el servicio militar durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En la placa conmemorativa se pueden leer los nombres de estos cuatro hombres y las palabras de Hechos 5:29: “Tenemos que obedecer a Dios como gobernante más bien que a los hombres”
      El secretario de Estado adjunto para Asuntos Públicos Prioritarios, Csaba Latorcai, afirmó en su discurso de apertura: “La placa recuerda a los cuatro jóvenes testigos de Jehová [...]. Obedecieron el mandamiento de ‘no matarás’ y, siguiendo los dictados de su conciencia, decidieron no tomar las armas contra sus compañeros de creencia ni contra otras personas”.
      Csaba Latorcai, secretario de Estado adjunto para Asuntos Públicos Prioritarios de Hungría, en su discurso inaugural
       
      Otro de los oradores, Szabolcs Szita, director del Museo en Memoria del Holocausto, dijo: “La inauguración de esta placa conmemorativa es una victoria, ya que durante décadas los testigos de Jehová han sido un colectivo olvidado de víctimas del nazismo. Debido a su fe firme, estos cuatro jóvenes mantuvieron su integridad incluso ante la muerte. Todos ellos son un excelente ejemplo para nosotros”.

      Szabolcs Szita, director del Museo en Memoria del Holocausto de Budapest, descubre la placa.

      A judge has ordered a religious order, the Clercs de St. Viateur du Canada, and the church-run Montreal Insitute for the Deaf to pay $30 million to a group of former students who were sexually assaulted by priests, making it the largest settlement for sexual assault in Quebec history.
      At least 60 deaf students were assaulted by members of the religious community and lay people working at the school between 1940 and 1982. The school changed its name to the Institut Raymond-Dewar in 1984.
      The judgment brings to an end a long and painful process that began with the authorization of a class action suit in 2012.
      Represented by Robert Kugler, of the firm Kugler Kandestin, which also secured a landmark decision last week when its client was awarded $8 million for a hockey injury, the plaintiffs will now apply to an adjudicator, former Appeal Court Justice André Forget, in private, and with a sign-language interpreter.
        The plaintiffs include students who were as young as eight years old when they were repeatedly assaulted at the boys boarding school.
      Twenty-eight religious staff and six lay people were named in the class action, of which only five or six are believed to still be alive.
