Vatican Cold War Crimes
Vatican Cold War Crimes
The Vatican's only hope of success was in encouraging two progressive
rivals-East and West-to dissipate their money and energy by quarreling. The
third party in the Vatican was watching the two powerful rivals wasting
their strength. The Vatican's policy made certain to prevent any compromise
between East and West. The arms race caused a disruption of the economy and
high prices which continue to affect all of us today.
Pius XI condemned all religions except his own Church. In the German
election of 1933, Pius XI ordered Catholics to support Nazism, as he had in
1923 for Mussolini. This Pope helped in destroying millions of Europeans
under the jackboot of Nazism. He was one of the greatest disturbers of peace.
Pius XII was a pupil of Pius XI. If Pius XI had chastised mankind with the
whips of German World War II, Pius XII chastised humanity with the
scorpions of the Cold War under which the world shivered.
Elected Pope in 1939, Pius XII, to the dismay of the Vatican in 1945, saw
the defeat of Germany by the Allies. He was in a delicate position. The
speeches and actions of his cardinals all betrayed the Vatican's support
for the Axis.
Pope Pius XII in 1945 did a political somersault. He went to the
microphones to address the world. This man who helped to raise Hitler to
power had the gall to tell the Western leaders: "create a better Europe
with . . . human dignity . . . and above all, the holy principle of
equality of rights of all people."
His audacity continued in his Christmas message of 1945, "The totalitarian
state is diametrically opposed to the principles of Democracy." Why did
Pius XII begin to advocate Democracy in 1945? It was to retrieve the Papal
defeat. Papal support of democracy was phony then and still is today.
The Pope extricated himself with amazing celerity. In no time, all blame
for the Vatican's pro-Axis behavior was forgotten and Pius XII was included
as being one of the leaders of the so-called "Free World."
Most bizarre is the Vatican's silence on its Hitler-Mussolini war compact
which never surfaced during the recent celebration. And so, on the day that
I write this-June 6, 1994, D-Day, the suppression of the Vatican's attempt
to derail the success of the Allies is a blot on its evil machinations! (As
I finish this article, the radio announces that Pope John Paul II has asked
his cardinals to admit the Church's past mistakes to the world.)
"To force a man to pay for the violation of his own liberty is indeed an
addition of insult to injury."
