When I was young, I was always told, "Never get into arguments about politics or religion" That piece of advice turned out to be vaguely correct. However, this is the Internet where nothing is real so it doesn’t matter.
I am intrigued by some of the reports that were circulating from alternative news sources from the time of Pope Benedict's announcement to retire.The gist of the reports were that the Pope was forced to retire because of an international arrest warrant issued against him for sexual abuse.
I was shocked at the magnitude of the scandal and set about to find out more about it, only to discover that, despite page after page of Google results from websites like David Icke, Prison Planet and Beforeitsnews.com, none of the mainstream media outlets, were carrying the story. Not one.
After some investigation, it transpired that the "News" reports, had originated from a single source, the "International Tribunal against Crimes of Church and State" (ITCCS) which despite its official sounding title, actually comprises of only one man, Kevin D. Annett, who is a bit of a crackpot, given the fact that he intends to initiate a campaign of occupation and confiscation of Church property. I also discovered that renowned atheist, Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens, had tried to find a way to have the pope arrested during his visit to the U.K.
Reuters revealed that because the resignation was unprecedented, the Pope would stay in the Vatican for for immunity, and security reasons, as there would be a likelihood of pilgrimages to his home.
It seems to me that a clear pattern of anti-Christian or anti-church sentiment has become evident within the truth seeker/alternative news community. I suspect that this is largely due to the influence of the Zeitgeist films, which are described as, “Conspiracy theory meets the New Age”.
Since anyone who is familiar with the truth about Alice Baily’s New Age agenda and the work of the Lucis trust, will likely diverge from the Zeitgeist philosophy, there is some disagreement in store.
