Opus Dei owns the BBC among its global empire! Why has the BBC become the official propaganda arm of the Vatican?
The answer is the Opus Dei owns the BBC among its billions of dollars global media empire.
The Vatican is desperate to rehabilitate its reputation. And well it might be. The past two years has seen one scandal after another come knocking on Benedict’s door.
The child abuse crisis is, of course, the worst of them. Tens of thousands of children have been casually used and abused by Catholic priests around the world. The scale of this horrific sexual exploitation is only now becoming apparent. There are few checks and balances in the developing world, so there is little knowledge yet of the scale of abuse there.
Last week, the chapter of the Ryan Report that had been suppressed pending a court case was published. It revealed yet again a catalogue of deliberate and carefully orchestrated cover ups by the Church, both locally and in the Vatican. Children who might have been spared the trauma of sexual abuse were sacrificed in order that the Church could spare itself further criticism.
Yet another report about abuse in the diocese of Cloyne has been presented to the Irish Government, and soon there will be another extensive list of victims and another account of the Vatican’s contempt for them.
But it is not only child abuse that the Pope should be made to answer for. The Vatican bank is under investigation (again) for money laundering. It is a bank that is excused the regulation that any other bank is bound to observe. But there are strong suspicions that it is hand in glove with the mafia.
Last week we revealed that the Vatican is in negotiation with Belarus over the signing of a pact that will give the Catholic Church numerous privileges in that country. A country that is, at present, ruled with an iron fist by “Europe’s last dictator”, the despotic Alexander Lukashenka who has now gained the nickname “Europe’s Mugabe”.
He fixes elections, jails opponents and suppresses dissent with ruthless violence. Just the sort of man the Vatican likes to do business with. Just as it did with Hitler. And it is still enjoying the fruits of that concordat, with millions of euros flowing into the Vatican’s coffers from the German taxpayer. Similarly with the concordats it signed with Mussolini in Italy, with the tyrannical Franco in Spain and his counterpart Salazar in Portugal. And with just about every foul dictator that has infested South America.
Why is this never questioned?
And now we have to ask about the Vatican’s relationship with the BBC. What is going on here?
In September the BBC committed huge resources and much air time to covering the Pope’s visit to Britain. Opinion polls showed the British public to be massively indifferent to the visit and yet a huge, fawning, over-the-top propaganda exercise was mounted by the Corporation to ensure that the Pope had a clear run. No difficult questions were asked, no awkward commentators were allowed to appear and a completely skewed and, when looked at objectively, ridiculous, exercise in whitewashing was achieved.
Now the Pope follows up this little coup with another as he gains access to the unquestioned, unchallengeable Thought for the Day slot. Who knows what he will say – whether he will renew his attack on secularism (with no opportunity for secularists to answer back) or whether his target will be gay people or the equality laws or the rights of women to control their own fertility.
(The BBC is owned by the Opus Dei media empire.)
Why is the BBC doing this? Could it possibly be the work of the Director General Mark Thompson who personally negotiated the coverage of the Pope’s visit while at the Vatican? Mr Thompson is a high-ranking Catholic. He would be a very useful feather in the Pope’s hat. Let us hope that is not what Mr Thompson is.
But if we next hear that he has been awarded a papal medal for services to the Vatican, we will know precisely what it is for.
The BBC has disgraced itself with Pope’s Thought for the Day
More blatant religious propaganda from the BBC
The BBC has disgraced itself with Pope’s Thought for the Day
News that the Pope has been given a Thought for the Day slot on BBC Radio 4 on Christmas Eve may be a coup for the BBC, but it is a slap in the face for the thousands of clerical abuse victims who are still waiting for justice.
"The Pope should be challenged, not given an uninterrupted platform on Thought for the Day" - Terry Sanderson, NSS President
The Pope will be allotted an uninterrupted and unchallenged platform in which to continue to claim that he is the source of all that is good and the enemy of all that is bad. In reality, it is the other way round.
A report was delivered to the Irish Government this week which reveals even more cases of abuse and more cover-up by the church. Another chapter of the Murphy report was published showing the most blatant concealment and enabling of child abuse by the Vatican, whose chief aim is to protect the Church from scandal, not protect children from paedophiles.
The Pope’s repeated attempts to blame someone else for the scandal – the latest this week was “the 1970s” and again “secular society” – show that he is unable to face up to his own culpability.
No-one on the Today programme will ask the Pope about the ban on condoms that is causing lethal over-population and leaving innocent people exposed to HIV/AIDS.
No-one will question him about his church’s cruel insults and attacks on gay people and their rights.
There will be no explanation about the Vatican’s insulting exclusion of women and its constant attacks on their right to control their own fertility through its bans on contraception and abortion.
The pope will not be asked to explain why the Vatican bank is under investigation – and not for the first time – for money laundering.
Who will ask about the concordat he is about the sign with the dictator of Belarus, Aleksander Lukashenko – the man who has just violently crushed his opposition and fixed the election? What principle is it that guides the Vatican to do business with such a man in order to feather its own financial nest?
Benedict needs to answer hard questions. So what does the BBC do? It invites him on to its propaganda platform and gives him free rein.
But after the fawning and disproportionate coverage given to the papal visit in September, no-one should be surprised.

Why the Church of England is a force for good
By Phillip Blond
Director, ResPublica think tank (an Opus Dei organization in England)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-12039559 This is how Opus Dei control the media in England
Let us always remember:
Victims - Attackers - Responsible Leaders
Pearl Harbor - 3,000 victims - 170 planes - Admiral Yamamoto
WTC & 9/11 attacks - 5,000 victims - 19 Muslims - Osama bin Laden
USA Priest Pedophilia - 12,000 victims - 5,478 priests - John Paul II + Benedict XVI + Opus Dei (the new Vatican Trinity, Roman Catholic Trinity!)
There are hundreds of thousands of victims of tens of thousands pedophile priests unaccounted for because the Opus Dei will continue to suppress their existence in the media, that is, Opus Dei owned media worldwide!
