Catholic Church owns 100% German Porn Industry “Weltbild" since 30 years…so much for the Theology of the Body of Blessed John Paul II

At the same time that Pope Benedict XVI announces his new World Domination Plan for a Vatican creation of a new “Central World Bank”, read about it here http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/10/vatican-proposes-new-global-financial.html and his former Swiss Guard, himself a CEO of multinational corporations, gives a seminar in Boston on “the Pope and the CEO” http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/10/opus-dei-seminar-on-pope-and-ceo-world.html news explode that the Roman Catholic Church owns 100% of the German porn industry “Weltbild" since 30 years – about the same time John Paul II became Pope and Cardinal Ratzinger became head of the CDF-- which confirms the Vatican’s financial modus operandi is indeed serving two masters God and Mammon. Benedict XVI want to establish a new world financial body so that the Vatican Bank will be out of the jurisdiction of existing SECULAR financial body of the IMF International Monetary Fund… and his first example is the corrupt Catholic Church that owns 100% of the porn industry!? This means that during his last trip to Germany, those German Cardinal and Bishops who performed the reincarnation of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist for 60,000 people at the Berlin Olympic Stadium are all serving both God and Mammon because they own the German porn industry “Weltbild" since 30 year! We are running out of adjectives to describe the Vatican, at first we thought of Vatican deceits and Vatican lies but Vatican Evils, the epitome of bad, could only fit it like a glove.

The Vatican is the smallest country on earth – and the wealthiest - and it will never know recession. The Vatican is the wealthiest institution on the planet and it has a guaranteed 52 billion dollars income every year – if 1.2 billion Catholics give a dollar each Sunday collection to have a taste of the reincarnation of Jesus Christ in the little host of the Eucharist. Many Catholics give thousands and millions of dollars to the Church. And Germany, the wealthiest country among the European Union, is also largely owned by the Roman Catholic Church. This latest news that the German Catholic Church owns the porn industry in Germany is one proof and is only the tip of the iceberg.

Benedict XVI’s crimes seem to be confirmed continously by his own countrymen. The first charges laid against his crimes against humanity at The Hague were done by two German lawyers, read the full text here http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/05/full-text-of-criminal-charges-against.html And now as he want to leave a legacy as Pope of a new global financial body, news that from his own country of Germany – which he recently visited – confirms the financial evils of the Vatican. Benedict XVI’s number one enemy is secularism which has neither god nor religion but his religion is proving itself to be worse than secularism – the Roman Catholic Church is as evil as the businesses it controls. It is for a special reason that Protestants call the Vatican the “Whore of Babylon” because she as Mother Church is sleeping with all kinds of evil multinational corporations.

The faster Benedict XVI proclaims that John Paul II is a “saint”, likewise the faster both their heinous crimes are being revealed to the world. John Paul II and Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger were partners who ruled the Vatican for over a quarter of a century. While the right hand of John Paul II was blessing the world, his left hand Cardinal Ratzinger was busy managing the corrupt governance of the Vatican. We had to start this new blog to focus on the Vatican Evils alone while our other blogs focus on the individuals of John Paul II, his JP2 Army of Pedophile Priests, Benedict XVI-Ratzinger, and the Sorcery of the Eucharist. And now as we start this new blog on Pope Crimes and Vatican Evils, confirmations are erupting continuously especially with the most recent news that the Vatican owns 100% the German porn industry of “Weltbild", read more news details below.

Vatican Evil number 1 is the complicit cover-up of the JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army that committed the Preistly Sodomy of Biblical Proportions that infested the Roman Catholic Church during the latter half of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century with the most recent discovery of Opus Dei Bishop Finn of Kansas City who was indicted by the secular government of Kansas, read our related article Bishop Finn is the live Achilles Heel of Benedict XVI…while Cardinal Bernard Law is the live Achilles Heel of John Paul II http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/10/bishop-finn-is-live-achilles-heel-of.html. If the tens of thousands of boys – and girls – victims waited for their day in court at the Vatican and prayed, paid and obeyed Cannon Law and hoped for an audience with Pope John Paul II – who reigned for 27 years – or with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger now Benedict XVI, they would have never tasted justice which only the secular courts gave to them – to some a few thousands dollars, to a few a million dollar settlements with Catholic Dioceses across the USA and Europe. Vatican Pied Pipers especially Bill Donohue and George Weigel keep piping that “it’s all about money”, the lawyers and victims were only after the money of the Roman Catholic Church. But then to the Vatican it is only about money...as these German Conference of Bishops prove with their 100% possesion of the porn industry in Germany.

So much for the preaching of the virginity of Mary and the purity of Blessed John Paul II who wrote the Theology of the Body while knwoing full well that his beloved companion to Guadalupe Fr. Marcial Maciel was one of his most notorious pedophile priests and he elevated criminal Cardinal Beranrd Law as Archpriest of St. Mary Magiorre, and now eh will celebrate his 80th birthday in grand Opus Dei style. The Opus Dei is managing the Vatican wealth worldwide including Germany. So much for the hypocrisy of the Beendict XVI and the Opus Dei, the Escriva echelon of "pure" numeraries and supernumeraries.

Catholic Church Makes A Fortune In The German Porn Business

http://www.worldcrunch.com/catholic-church-makes-fortune-german-porn-business/3995

Weltbild, one of Germany’s largest publishing companies, happens to be owned and operated by the Catholic Church. But that has not stopped it from publishing books that many of the faithful find offensive.

"Weltbild," Germany’s largest media company, sells books, DVDs, music and more -- and also happens to belong 100% to the Catholic Church. Few people knew about this connection until this month when Buchreport, a German industry newsletter, reported that the Catholic company also sells porn.

A Church spokesman responded: “Weltbild tries to prevent the distribution of possibly pornographic content.”

Well, it's prevention efforts have apparently not been so successful. For more than 10 years, a group of committed Catholics has been trying to point out what is going on to Church authorities, and they are outraged at the hypocrisy of the spokesman's statement. In 2008, the group sent a 70-page document to all the bishops whose dioceses have shared ownership of Weltbild for 30 years, detailing evidence of the sale of questionable material.

Today, the Augsburg-based company employs 6,400 people, has an annual turnover of 1.7 billion euros, and an online business in Germany second only to Amazon. Weltbild is also Germany’s leading book seller, controlling 20% of the domestic bookstore market. Profits are regularly reinvested in the company with an eye to rapidly increase the market share – an increase that is only possible if Weltbild continues to sell materials that are not compatible with the teachings of the Church.

The 2,500 erotic books in their online catalogue, including those from Blue Panther Books, an erotic book publisher owned by Weltbild, are only one example. Their titles include: “Anwaltshure” (Lawyer’s Whore), “Vögelbar” (F—kable) and “Schlampen-Internat” (Sluts’ Boarding School).

The Church also owns a 50% share in publishing company Droemer Knaur which produces pornographic books, and so indirectly is also a publisher of pornographic material, titles including “Nimm mich hier und nimm mich jetzt!” (Take Me Here, Take Me Now!), and “Sag Luder zu mir!” (Call Me Slut!).

"most bishops ignored the communications, not even bothering to reply." $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

LifeSiteNews, the Catholic news site, is harsh:

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/2011/11/01/germany-catholic-pornography-church-scandal/

German Catholic author Gabriele Kuby, who has for years pointed out to bishops various shortcomings in the Catholic Church in her nation, said that the worst thing about the current public scandal is the hypocrisy. Each of the affected bishops received 70 pages of documentation in 2008 detailing the fact that the publishing company was selling the pornographic titles, Kuby told LifeSiteNews. She noted that most bishops ignored the communications, not even bothering to reply. The Archdiocese of Munich did reply, said Kuby, but she says their response was “arrogant and spiteful.”

The bishops can’t possibly not have known. How is this possible that they justified this? Because of the money it made? Be aware that Weltbild is not a porn producer by its nature. It’s like an Amazon.com outfit. It just happens to have a rather large collection of pornography in its catalog. And it is wholly owned by the Roman Catholic Church in Germany.

"AUGSBURG, Germany, November 2, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a press release, the major German publishing company owned by the Catholic Bishops of Germany says the company is considering suing the “slanderers” who have accused it of profiting from porn, because the “erotica” sold on its website does not meet the legal definition of pornography."

What’s really shocking to me is that these are the Bishops from the same country as our Pope! So now, tell me Pope Benedict XVl is not aware of this travesty of morality and authority and is as blindsided as was John Paul ll concening all the clergy involved in decades of child abuse and homosexual conduct? Well If anyone said to me ” I’m sure these two Popes are blameless” I would say…‘not a chance, they just lack the courage to reign in bad Priests and excommunicate if necessary. ’ It’s like corruption and decadence is as welcome in the Catholic Church as is holiness and virtue. So many Judas’s..how sad for our dear Savior to see HIs Church so foul and putrid! We must remember to make reparation to our darling Savior!


German bishops’ company: Its not porn, just erotica, so we’re suing the ‘slanderers’

AUGSBURG, Germany, November 2, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a press release, the major German publishing company owned by the Catholic Bishops of Germany says the company is considering suing the “slanderers” who have accused it of profiting from porn, because the erotic offerings sold on its website does not meet the legal definition of pornography.

Last week the secular media in Germany reported that the company WELTBILD, 100% of the shares of which are held by German dioceses and the bishops conference, carries 2,500 porn titles. The press also reported that the bishops had ignored the pleas of faithful Catholics who had tried to have the matter corrected internally for a decade.

Following the publication in the German media, LifeSiteNews verified that there were hundreds of pornographic images - mostly book-covers – on the WELTBILD site. Some of the covers featured full frontal nudity and explicit photos typical of the covers of pornographic magazines like Playboy.

As one example, one book title cached by LifeSiteNews depicts a photo of a female from the neck to knees, breasts fully exposed and hands over the crotch. A translation of the German-language teaser of the book on the WELTBILD site gives a relatively tame preview of what is actually more explicit sexual content in the book:

A dark forest and a creature of the night ... A strict mistress and a willing slave ... a young woman and the desires of her boss ... A man who would do anything for his friend ... Sensual women reveal their most secret fantasies! And so these stories are extremely, wickedly seductive, uninhibited passion and delicious. There are exciting dreams shamelessly crossing all boundaries! Lustful Dreams - written by women for women!

Other websites offering or reviewing the same titles present much more sexually graphic excerpts from the books sold by WELTBILD.

WELTBILD was also found to be carrying DVD’s that would be deemed pornographic by normal Christian standards, but may not meet a legal definition of hard-core pornography in Germany.

But since the story broke in the German media, the publishing company has been removing offensive pages from its website and disabling search engine functions for searches on its website using words such as ‘erotic.’

“It should be noted,” said WELTBILD in its press release, that “’pornography’ is a clearly defined legal term.” They add that according to that definition, “WELTBILD offers no pornography and has never done so before.”

German Catholic faithful who attempted to work behind the scenes to have the bishops correct the situation say they are incredulous about the ‘shoot the messenger’ tactics the company has taken.

The bishops’ company press release states that less than 0.02% of its annual turnover comes from the erotic offerings of the company and thus headlines such as ‘Catholic Church makes a fortune with porn’ are “simply untrue and defamatory.”
Catholic observers say they are wondering why, if the profit margin from the “erotic” offerings is so slim, the bishops failed to get rid of the controversial material after years of documented concerns expressed by faithful Catholics.

Ownership of WELTBILD is divided between the Bishops’ Conference (24%), the Archdiocese of Munchen and Freising (13%), the diocese of Augsburg (13%) and 11 other diocese with percentage ownerships ranging from two to seven percent.

German Bishops caught in massive porn scandal - why didn’t they listen to the faithful?

by John-Henry Westen


Pur magazine cover story on the scandal

COLOGNE, October 31, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - After ten years of being internally warned by faithful Catholics, including in a 70-page dossier sent to all of Germany’s main bishops, the scandal of the German bishops’ ownership of a publishing company that sells a large volume of porn has hit the mainstream media.

Last week the mainstream media outed the fact that the German bishops are 100% owners of one of the most profitable book companies in Germany. The huge company, in addition to offering many religious and other ethical books and items, also peddles 2500 porn titles and additional books highly offensive to Christian principles.

A spokesman for the bishops promised immediate corrective action. However, the false pretense of ignorance about the situation has only served to add to the scandal, especially for faithful Catholics who were treated with silence and even disdain when they repeatedly attempted for years to bring the scandal to an end out of public view.

WELTBILD, is the second largest bookselling company in Germany. It is wholly owned by the German bishops and has a $1.7 billion annual turnover. Its 2,500 porn titles (with covers too sexually explicit to reproduce) include perverse sexual fantasy of every type. WELTBILD also sells books promoting Satanism, the occult, esoterism, and anti-Christian atheist propaganda.

More than that, the bishops are also 50% owners in another company - Ver-lagsgruppe Droemer Knaur - which actually produces the pornographic novels.

German Catholic author Gabriele Kuby, who has for years pointed out to bishops various shortcomings in the Catholic Church in her nation, said that the worst thing about the current public scandal is the hypocrisy. Each of the affected bishops received 70 pages of documentation in 2008 detailing the fact that the publishing company was selling the pornographic titles, Kuby told LifeSiteNews. She noted that most bishops ignored the communications, not even bothering to reply. The Archdiocese of Munich did reply, said Kuby, but she says their response was “arrogant and spiteful.”

In reaction to questioning from the mainstream press, church officials claimed it was a filtering problem which resulted in the oversight, adding that the matter will be dealt with.

Another faithful Catholic, Bernhard Mueller, the editor-in-chief of the Catholic magazine PUR, was himself involved in trying to have the bishops resolve the scandal internally. Now, PUR’s front page story covering the current state of affairs is titled “Bishops as porn producers.”

In his coverage of the now-public scandal, Mueller describes the 10-year-long attempt to convince the bishops to take action on the matter. He concludes: “But over the years, all internal efforts to bring the scandal have come to nothing.”

The reaction from the public, as can be seen in reader comments beneath the mainstream media reports, has been to ridicule the Catholic Church. Mueller summed up the public view succinctly with the phrase: “Preach chastity and sell pornography.”

Catholic Church faces hardcore porn shame

GERMANY
New Zealand Herald

Germany's biggest Catholic-owned publishing house has been rocked by disclosures that it has been selling thousands of pornographic novels with titles such as Sluts Boarding School and Lawyer's Whore with the full assent of the country's leading bishops.

The revelations made in the publishing-industry newsletter Buchreport concern Weltbild, a company with an annual NZ$3bn turnover and 6,400 employees. It is Germany's largest bookseller after Amazon and wholly owned by the Catholic Church.

Buchreport revealed that Weltbild's massive assortment of titles available to customers online includes some 2,500 "erotic" books with unmistakably lewd titles including Call Me Slut!, Take Me Here, Take Me Now! and Lawyer's Whore, to name a few. The publisher's website also pictures the titles' lascivious dust jackets that feature colour photographs of scantily clad women in high heels and erotic underwear

Yesterday, Carel Haff, Weltbild's managing director, was quoted as saying that the revelations had provoked "a very intense and critical dialogue" within the company. He said discussions were under way about possibly limiting the assortment of titles that would be available in future.

Catholic bishops responded with a statement claiming that "a filtering system failure" at the publishing house had allowed the books to stray on to the market. "We will put a stop to the distribution of possibly pornographic content in future," they said.

But Bernhard Mller, editor of the Catholic magazine PUR, dismissed the clerics' reaction as grossly hypocritical. He alleged that the pornography scandal at Weltbild had been going on for at least a decade with the Church's full knowledge.

Mr Mller said that in 2008, a group of concerned Catholics had sent bishops a 70-page document containing irrefutable evidence that Weltbild published books that promoted pornography, Satanism and magic. They demanded that the publisher withdraw the titles.

But their protests appear to have been completely ignored. Writing in the Die Welt newspaper, Mr Mller said most of the bishops refused to respond to the charges. "The sudden proclaimed astonishment of many church leaders that pornographic material is being distributed by their publishing house, is play acting - bad play acting," Mr Mller said. "Believers have been complaining to their bishops about this for years."

The Catholic Church bought Weltbild more than 30 years ago. The publisher has gradually transformed itself into one of Germany's largest media companies with the help of millions in Catholic Church tax levied on believers. To increase its profits, in 1998 the company merged with five other publishing houses that market pornographic titles.

One of them is Droemer Knaur, which is 50 per cent church-owned. Another is Blue Panther Books, which was excluded from the list of participating publishers at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair allegedly because of the pornographic content of is titles.

It emerged yesterday that in an attempt to clear itself of potential embarrassment over the sale of porn, the Catholic Church tried to sell Weltbild in 2009. But the bishops apparently abandoned the idea after they failed to get the price they were asking.
