Protest Benedict XVI's German trip: Banners to use. 86 percent of Germans think Benedict's four-day trip “totally unimportant”








The number of protestors in Germany against Benedict XVI's state visit will be the largest yet. 20,000 are expected to protest and members of parliament threaten to boycott the Pope's speech. When Benedict went to London last year, there were about 11,000 protestors who lined the streets of London, read our related article Faith, BLESSED NEWMAN, prayers, Christ-CRUCIFIX never protected children and can never bring justice to victims of John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/09/blessed-newmanprayers-crucifix-of.html.

They were sent to us by a German surivor abused by priests.

According to an AP news today, A poll published the week before Benedict's four-day trip showed 86 percent of Germans - including 63 percent of Catholics - thought the trip was “basically unimportant” or “totally unimportant” for them personally.

Even Vatican Radio's German service concluded before the visit, “there is a sense that the pope and Germans are strangers to each other.”

Catholics - and Protestants - are leaving the Church in droves. In 2010, more than 181 000 people deserted the Roman Catholic Church - roughly one every three minutes.

At last, Catholics in Germany realize that the Eucharist is the highest form of magic, sorcery and myth. Benedict XVI and priests have no power to say "Let there be light" and there was light, they cannot re-incarnate dead cats and dogs and therefore they cannot reincarnate God either, read our related article explaining the powerlessness of the Pope and priests -- Magisterium Benedict VERSUS Holy Mary: Priests' transubstantiation instant reincarnation of Christ VERSUS Mary’s 9 months pregnancy& child birth http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/2010/01/magisterium-benedict-versus-holy-mary.html

Opus Dei controlled the 27 years papacy of John Paul II and is therefore the foremost guilty party who aided and abetted and covered-up the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. Opus Dei wrote most of John Paul II’s books and writings and to ensure their perpetuity as “All things Catholic”, they want JP2 to be beatified and canonized now by Benedict XVI so as not to take any chances on other future popes. The FACE of Opus Dei is John Paul II and the PHANTOM Spirit of Opus Dei is their founder St. Josemaria Escriva, read our related article John Paul II, Patron of Pederasts and Opus Dei – analysis of Joaquin Navarro-Valls’ reasons for JP2 beatification at Opus Dei conference in Rome http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/why-john-paul-ii-is-opus-deis-patron.html

As a born German, a baptized catholic and above all, a survivor of catholic sexual abuse, I like to commemorate the State Visit to Germany of the successor of Constantine and Ceasar(aka Benedict XVI) with more banners in support of the many survivors of catholic sexual abuse.
These banners can be used on websites and in emails, just scale down appropriately.

Please note, obscene and vile crimes require strong language and reactions to have a counter acting effect.

We do other graphics, more elaborate designs etc., to suit personal needs but only in support of clergy sexual abuse survivors.

Please pass them on to other supporters of our cause.Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Abuse scandal, rows blight pope’s image

Pope Benedict XVI greets the faithful during the Angelus prayer at his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo, in the outskirts of Rome on September 18, 2011.

Pope Benedict XVI's election sparked joy in Germany, but the Church's reaction to a sex abuse scandal and a series of controversies have dented his image ahead of his first state trip home.

“Wir Sind Papst” (“We are pope”) crowed Germany's top-selling Bild daily in a famous front-page when Benedict was elected in 2005, encapsulating a nation's pride in the first German-born pontiff for more than 500 years.

“It's the sensation of the century,” the influential paper wrote, as the German Church noted the significance of a countryman elected to lead the world's 1.2 billion Catholics 60 years after the capitulation of Nazi Germany.

But that was six years ago.

Now, while the man born Joseph Ratzinger 84 years ago in the tiny Bavarian village of Marktl-am-Inn will likely be welcomed home by cheering crowds, there will also be protests and a certain degree of apathy in Germany.

“Having just swept all before him in (Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez) Zapatero's Spain, Benedict may very well find Germany to be one of his bigger challenges,” said Samuel Gregg, director of research at the US-based Acton Institute, a think tank on religion and economics.

A poll published the week before Benedict's four-day trip showed 86 percent of Germans - including 63 percent of Catholics -

thought the trip was “basically unimportant” or “totally unimportant” for them personally.

Even Vatican Radio's German service concluded before the visit, “there is a sense that the pope and Germans are strangers to each other.”


Protest groups expect around 20 000 people to demonstrate against the pontiff and some deputies have threatened to boycott his speech in parliament, amid concerns over the separation of Church and state.

Germany's Christians are split down the middle between Catholics and Protestants. According to figures published by the German Bishops' Conference, there were 24.7 million Catholics in 2010 and 24.2 million Protestants.

But Benedict's trip comes as Catholics - and Protestants - are leaving the Church in droves. In 2010, more than 181 000 people deserted the Roman Catholic Church - roughly one every three minutes.

Observers put this down, at least in part, to last year's “annus horribilis” with the emergence of a high-profile sex abuse scandal that deeply harmed the German Catholic Church's image.

Germany's top archbishop admitted the Church had “failed” in its response as hundreds said they were physically and sexually abused as children in Catholic institutions decades ago amid allegations the crimes were hushed up.

“It's not my sense that Benedict is viewed in any way as being particularly at fault himself for what happened in Germany or elsewhere in the 1970s and 80s,” said Gregg.

But he added: “To the extent that the Church's moral standing has been discredited by the scandal, it's inevitable that the pope's standing is also affected.”

The pontiff also touched perhaps Germany's most sensitive nerve by lifting the excommunication of a bishop who denied the Nazis killed six million Jews in World War II - earning himself a rare rebuke from Chancellor Angela Merkel.

In a series of interviews published in a book last year, Benedict said that he would not have done this had he known about the bishop's views on the Holocaust.

Meanwhile, during a private visit to the southern city of Regensburg in 2006, the pope became embroiled in perhaps the biggest row of his papacy after appearing to link Islam with violence.

Nevertheless, organisers expect enthusiastic throngs at Benedict's public appearances and his mass in Berlin's Olympic Stadium is to draw a capacity crowd of 70 000.

Not all Germans are indifferent to the visit. “We are pope - still,” Julia Kloeckner, an MP from Merkel's conservatives told the Rheinische Post daily. - Sapa-AFP
