Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Not for the Timid - Video about Vatican Scandals

I have had to tell a few people,
"Francis is not a Franciscan. He is a Jesuit.
Jesuits are power hungry extreme Leftists - and devious.
Jesuit is a common insult in the Roman Catholic Church.

I am only linking this video because it is quite disgusting in one place and not accurate in dealing with Pope Francis, who is hardly the answer to anything. The video ends with glowing references to Francis. Ha.

This video touches on the ways of the real power in the Vatican, the Curia, and the major scandals in the world-wide Church of Rome, chiefly child abuse and the homosexual control of Rome, but also sinister banking practices at the Vatican Bank. I have been following the major scandals since 1987 or so and researched some of them at the University of Notre Dame before that.

The use of intimidation, divide-and-conquer, and other forms of manipulation should not be unusual for Lutherans or any other denomination. The clericalism of Rome is no different from the clericalism in the LCMS, WELS, ELCA, the CLC (sic), or the ELS - Rome's methods are just bigger and better.

I expect more of this in Catholic parishes.
