The Catholic Church pornography scandal has hit,
with evidence coming to light that the Vatican is making some considerable profits investing in companies which sell porn. The Austrian publishing company Beltwild (wholly owned by the Vatican) sells a range of 2,500 pornographic titles from which the Catholic Church handsomely profits. When questioned about this Catholic Church pornography issue, the PR department at the Vatican adopted three defensive positions.
The first was to claim that it wasn’t making that much money from it – around $391,000 in 2011 according to this source. However, for many people this is a huge amount of money, equivalent to their life savings and enough to buy a house. Besides, what does the amount of money have to do with the principle of the matter? That fact is that the Vatican makes a big deal of disapproving pornography. So why is it making any money at all from it? Why is it condoning and supporting it? Money talks, principles walk.
The second excuse offered by the Catholic Church was that by buying stocks or shares in companies which profit from porn, they could engage in active shareholder resolutions and try to change the direction of the company. Sounds nice in theory, but has anyone ever heard of this actually working? Also, as the video clip shows, if the Vatican really wanted to do this, why hasn’t it yet in any of the companies in which it owns stock?
Thirdly, the Vatican came up with the lame excuse that its Austrian publishing company Beltwild wasn’t really selling pornography – it was actually selling erotica! That’s right – it’s Catholic Church erotica, not Catholic Church pornography. Unlike some of the sexually repressed members of the Catholic Church, I don’t profess to know enough about the subject to perceive the subtle distinction. But really, is the Vatican seriously telling us now that erotica is completely fine with God but watching or reading porn is a sin?
It is hard to think of an institution that has such an aversion to taking responsibility for itself. The stench of hypocrisy is foul. Like numerous other scandals in its tumultuous history, the Catholic Church pornography scandal is just another example the Vatican is rotten to the core and in no shape to morally or spiritually guide anyone. Yet despite this, it appears the Pope and the Vatican are being groomed to bring in the “United Religions” or the One World Religion of the New World Order … so expect more scandals to surface.

Is the writer here working with the NWO to form the one world religion, because they are trashing the Catholic church enough here to lose membership. While I continued to be disgusted with the Vatican I can still be a practicing Catholic without them. Hopefully eventually they will find their way back to morality.
Wow- what a slimy looking character the Vatican financier is. I sure wouldn’t leave him alone with any altar boys! Creepy guy. I was raised in the catholic church but haven’t claimed it for many years. I believe our spirituality and connection with our Creator God is truly personal- we don’t need any intermediaries on our behalf. I am glad that I was given religious teaching as a child however. Kids need to be taught faith, goodness and respect for a power greater than themselves. There are still many good people in the catholic church. It’s just the core that’s rotten!
That’s why I don’t want to be a Catholic becoz’ Of that.
All religions, whatever their denomination (this includes New Age and Science), are institutions of control over large numbers of people. Neither dogma nor a priest are needed to live in a personal relationship with God, however a person perceives that. Sex is one of the biggest issues in human consciousness, and its influence has become overtly pervasive in our society. Sexual intoxication, abuse and paedophilia are rife, though covert, in virtually every controlling institution. That includes police/armed forces, governments, social services, education, religious organisations. The Vatican has been a hypocrite virtually since its inception. The excesses of the Borgias are a prime example.
