HOLY PEDOPHILES OR THE PEDIGREE OF Fr. S.J.Emmanuel!!!
Posted on April 13th, 2010

Mahinda Weerasinghe Author of “ƒ”¹…”Mission to Oslo’ & “ƒ”¹…”The Origin of Species According To the Buddha’.

There is something balmy with ‘the elite’ inhabitants of “ƒ”¹…”Helle Diva’ (Lanka). It is as if they were living on a planet of it’s on.

Crucial treatises appearing in the web, written by hawk-eyed and worldly Sri Lankan analysts are hardly exposed in the Lankan news media. What is the reason for this strange conduct? Is there a concerted effort to expunge vital and crucial information from reaching the native’s attention, thus holding them uninformed and dim-witted?

Catholic Church is currently imploding. Cover up of its paedophile priests’ despicable activities are making dramatic headlines around the world. While international news agencies are outlining “ƒ”¹…”Sex-escapades’ of these “ƒ”¹…”holy’ paedophiles, the news somehow gets blurred “ƒ”¹…”in translation’ before it reaches the shores of Lanka.

I do not want to go into the mechanics of paedophilia, but naturally, as Sri Lankan reporters are prompted to publish current world events or look ludicrous, they do so in a “ƒ”¹…”nit-picking’ manner.

Through that process of “ƒ”¹…”hide and seek’ to “ƒ”¹…”white -wash’ its Catholic patrons, they have managed to cast the Lankan priests as being “ƒ”¹…”as pure as the driven snow’. How can that possible be, you’re bound to query?  Indeed their reporting style is such that; we get a kind of feeling that; unlike these appalling paedophiles in the west, these local holy Johnnies are like “ƒ”¹…”new born babes’, pure and “ƒ”¹…”virginal’.

As a result, Lankans look at such international paedophile priests’ antics through colour lenses. While it’s impossible to pin down the use and abuse of children by the Local Catholic Curia, especially as their own catholic flock is being misused, hence well cloaked,  yet even if such activities were to be discovered and relayed to the natives,  it would be like “ƒ”¹…”pouring water on a ducks back’. There is a valid reason for their unique mind set!

The Catholic action controlled English media is under strict instructions of what should be reported, and what should be expunged.  This shifty 2000 year old institution is now tottering on its very foundations, and on the verge of folding up. It is bound to collapse soon like a house of cards. Yet the looming consequences are studiously glossed over and not given any analytical appraisal by the Catholic controlled local media in Lanka.

If anything, this paedophile affair has projected how Lankan masses are kept callously ignorant. If real facts of what’s happening in Lanka had reached the common man’s ears during the 60ties and 70 ties, then they would have crushed the Catholic Church inspired terror organization LTTE, before it hit the ground running. But we notice that the Sri Lankan nation is still in a slumber!

Luckily Global media cannot be so easily muzzled by the Catholic Church, hence the Internet is inundated with the latest disturbing priestly paedophile deeds such as: –

“The Pope played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests, according to a shocking documentary to be screened by the BBC tonight. (08-04-2010)

In 2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to Catholic bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church’s interests ahead of child safety.

The document recommended that rather than reporting sexual abuse to the relevant legal authorities, bishops should encourage the victim, witnesses and perpetrator not to talk about it. And, to keep victims quiet, it threatened that if they repeat the allegations they would be excommunicated.

Late-Night Jokes about Paedophile Priests is currently tickling our funny bones. Here are some classic rib ticklers: –

“The U.S. Cardinals said they are going to develop a code of ethics to help them deal with the sexual scandal. Wait a minute, I thought their already was a code of ethics, it’s called the Bible.” “”‚Jay Leno

“The Catholic Church is finally cracking down. Here’s the deal now: if a priest is transferred to another parish, he cannot take his live-in boyfriend.” “”‚David Letterman

After all these scandals in the church, many Roman Catholics are calling for an end to celibacy. And end to celibacy, how about starting celibacy? Let’s at least try it to see if it works.” “”‚Jay Leno

 “Isn’t it crazy with all these church scandals? I’m beginning to understand how all those Bibles ended up in hotel rooms.” “”‚Jay Leno

As far as I am concerned, such antics of the catholic Priest’s and their escapades are, “ƒ”¹…”old hat’, for I was acquainted with “AWFUL DISCLOSURES”, BY MARIA MONK by the 60ies, and grasped how crude sex was practiced in nunneries. What’s more this work was published in 1835(can be downloaded on the Internet). In fact Casanova wrote of his personal sexual exploits with Nuns and even mother superiors and listed the children he procreated through such intimacies. He finished his memoirs in 1798. Even Boccaccio’s work “ƒ”¹…”Decameron’ is mostly based on tales of nuns and priests caught in compromising situations. This was penned during the plagues in 1348 which their Catholic God had inflicted upon them. So what is this bizarre hue and cry about Catholic Priests’ paedophile activities just now?

In fact, Paedophile activities are small potatoes compared to those innocent heathen nations this institution so callously destroyed throughout the centuries. However presently this neo-colonial Jaffna Tamil “ƒ”¹…”very’ Catholic Church is unable to halt the Church’s gradual slide towards the truth. Indeed for centuries such Judeo Christian sects, with their self centred “ƒ”¹…”God loves me and I love God’, has brought the “ƒ”¹…”living with nature’ civilizations to its knees.

Sri Lankan Buddhist tolerance was used as a pivot against the very Buddhists. Lethal power of the church and its conniving intransigence against the Paradise Island, harks back to the pre-independent times.

Even presently the hard fact that a Catholic priest, one Fr. S.J.Emmanuel, is leading the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) is unknown among the Buddhist and the Hindu Public.

(GTF) being an extension of the terror organization LTTE, which the racist fascist mass murderer Velupillai Prabhakaran led until May 2009.

L.H.Mettananda published his incisive work “ƒ”¹…”Catholic Action’ in 1963. This scholar clearly recognized at that early stage, what’s in store for the newly independent democratic young nation. His work simply borders on prophesy.

He informed; “The entire organization of the catholic Action Movement (CAM) has been extraordinarily active ever since Ceylon gained its freedom. It would appear that surreptitiously and imperceptibly, the catholic Action Movement has captured the key-positions in the Armed Forces, the Police and the Administrative services, As well as in Agriculture, Commerce and Industry. By this means, it has succeeded in acquiring immense economic power in the land. It has gone even further. It has used its familiar technique to infiltrate into areas where Buddhism is a huge force.”

He correctly predicted the looming hellish hurdles we would have to undergo, for “We are in a position to reveal that there was an inner cabinet to advise the first prime Minster of independent Ceylon, Mr. D. S. Senanayake, on state policy as well as on the day-to-day administration, and that this cabinet comprised entirely of Catholics…

This inner-Cabinet saw to it that the newly formed Armed Forces; the Army, the Navy and the Air Force were subjected to “Christian Penetration”. More than 75% of the staff posts in the Army, 95% in the Navy and more than 60% in the Air force were manned by Roman Catholic! And practically every key post was filled by one of them.”

Obviously left over crumbs which were the positions of foot soldiers, were filled by Buddhist and Hindus, so that “ƒ”¹…”in times to come’ to be exploited as cannon fodder.

What comes across most blatantly is; tolerance and ignorance is not a blessing in disguise, but a stepping stone for enslavement. Lankan Buddhists and Hindus were there to be exploited by paedophile priests when they buggered these youth, but in fact this was nothing compared to what they did to the Sri Lankan nation.

The Present president has redeemed the Lanka by exterminating the most ruthless terror organization since the assassins of the 12th Century. But I am not sure he really grasped the forces which he defeated, and who were really behind this insurgency.

Even Methandanda was not wise enough to penetrate how deep the conspiracy went. Indeed we find CAM has encouraged infiltration of leading families which was to act from within in order to dilute and destroy the greatest Buddhist civilization man has ever known.

Is it not a fact that Chandrika married an actor who portrayed Jesus in the silver screen and the present H.E is also married to a Catholic lady? So the CAM has its tentacles in every nook and corner, while at the same time, inscrutable and imperceptible.

 Not so long ago “Da Vinci Code” was banned in Sri Lanka in response to an appeal by the Catholic bishops. The nation was denied a basic democratic right to see this film and make up their own minds. Bishops in support of their case pointed out that, Sri Lankans were incapable of separating facts from friction, and bound to get confused by the ‘code’. That must be the reason why Catholic paedophile defending bishops do not allow the local media or the TV to inform what is common knowledge. For Sri Lanka must be filled with confused idiots! You must decide whether this is the case?

I pointed out at that time that this censoring was done through a directive of H.E, the President. So he must be having a very low opinion of his own people. The very people who voted him in as their president.

In fact it was reported that when the Jathika Hela Urumaya urged President Rajapaksa to have the Unethical Conversions Bill be made into law without further delay, the President had asked the monks to get the approval of the Catholic and Christian Churches for same.  It is beyond our comprehension that over 70 per cent Buddhists need the green light from less than seven percent of Christians for enforcing such a Bill.

Obviously we clearly recognize that the Catholic Church is leading the Sri Lankan Nation by its nose.

In fact, the time is ripe to rectify this unholy situation and get these confused dolts back on track.

This Catholic Church’s manipulations with vital and crucial information should be decisively brought to a halt!

I suggest as an initial measure that we to take control of our national asserts such as “ƒ”¹…”Daily News’ and “ƒ”¹…”The Sunday Observer’ which is owned by the people and not Catholic Church. Also 70% of Buddhist and 65% Hindus should join and float a news paper through which they offer their unblemished views.

This is a dire necessity, if we are to unload this criminal parasitic organization piggy ridding on the nation’s back

    It was always obvious that if you began questioning, Institutionalised Christianity required a high level of gullibility.
    But what we didn’t realise was how deadly the corruption and hypocrisy was. These paedophile-protectors didn’t allow married people to use contraceptives!
    But, there have always been truly devout adherents in all religions. Jesus Christ would have been the first to hurl Ratzinger and Company out of the Temple in Jerusalem, before throwing out the money changers!
    The Buddha Dharma given us by Gautama is wonderful, but NOT in its “institutionalised form” which attempts to bolster Sinhala nationalism. Individuals find religion a useful tool to wield POWER.
    The World Head of Anglicanism has proved too humble, decent and kindly to be an effective politician or tyrant. But examine how his acolyte, Duleep de Chickera, terrorises the Schools he runs. He cannot interfere with the British Priest in the flagship school in Mt. Lavinia, but just examine how he runs the other branches. Little different from Catholic hubris.
    We must re-examine the view that all religious leaders are wonderful. That above all.
    All religions are man-made but are feeble human efforts to understand the unknowable. It is the “Dignitaries” who are dangerous. Stop handling them with kid gloves. These guys must be made to observe the laws of the land – unless those laws are iniquitous.
    I say again: investigate the goings on in Anglican Schools!

  2. Ratanapala Says:

    This is an excellent expose of the pedophiliac church. I have always maintained for years that it is this church – the unseen hand behind all untoward happenings in Sri Lanka and elsewhere in the world. We must understand its malefic presence and its influence in every sphere of existence in our land. The presence of the Western Christian Nations headed by USA – Mars with its destructive capacity; Rahu our Ex- Colonial power – Britain the ever present distractor. Saturn the giant is our next door neighbor / big brother and Keheta the shadowy tentacled one – is none other than the Christian Church in all its manifestations.

    It is up to the newly empowered President to understand the malefic presence of these distracters and govern Sri Lanka with a sense of history. Nobody lasts for ever – and so will be the Rajapakse Administration. Only thing it can leave behind is the good work that it should do, now that the people – mainly Sinhala Buddhists have put him in Power. This is the tide of power that turned into a torrent at the murder of Soma Hamuduruwo. The President must understand this reality clearly that it is not the Catholic Church nor the Christian Powers that has unequivocally put him in charge of the nation. It will be his undoing for him to get under the influence of the Christian Church through the influence of the first lady or other Christians closer to him.

    Time will see how he will work. The Sri Lankan Buddhist nation needs protection for its clergy are mostly businessmen and landed gentry. Most have little time for the empowerment of the Buddhists for they are busy looking after their business interests. How many times a year do we, in the least listen to a Bana sermon from these worthies. They must understand that they are there to teach morality to our leaders and to the nation and not to hold Kathikawatha’s and show Bhikku Power, (by bringing Buddhist monks to the streets) to the elected leader fo the country. They are there to advice and not admonish! They have so far not shown being capable of understanding the nature of the Christian Church the Keheta of Sri Lanka. Their inability to even garner support from the Buddhist countries in South and South-East Asia shows the lack of depth in their influence.

    One of the ways the Christian Church devours entire families is by marrying into Buddhist and Hindu families. At the wedding ceremony after the poruwa ceremony or the Hindu ceremony an important contract gets signed by the cassocked and black-belted or dog collared agent of the Keheta – the Christian Church. This contract binds and obtains agreement from the Buddhist or Hindu partner of the marriage to see that the children are raised in the Christian faith. Once this happens in almost all cases the entire future of that family ends up in the tentacles of the Keheta. This can be seen in Buddhist families that have now ended up being Christian. D R Wijewardhana family is a prime example. The children who are infected with the Keheta virus end up being virulent Anti Buddhist or Anti Hindu. We will see in time if the President’s progeny too are infected with this virus. History shows that Konappu Bandara who was infected with the virus got cured and ruled the country as Vimala Dharma Suriya – a very benevolent ruler of our country. It is said that D S Senanayake’s wife too was a Catholic!

    Let us hope that there will be many more Konappu Bandaras and not many more Don Juan Dharmapalas in Sri Lanka’s future.

    The current POPE is a NAZI and cried against all other faiths. Vatican refused to apologise to HINDUS/BUDDHISTS for the crimes committed by his church during the Catholic rule of Indian maritimes and Sri Lankan maritimes.

    Vatican further cried out that Sri Lanka and India will be Catholic countries before the end of this century. The same S.J. Emmanuel barked once the LTTE are the DIVINE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST (D.S.C). 10 years ago I mentioned this matter and wrote a comment to LANKAWEB but it was not published. Now LANKAWEB is more accomodative.

    Who are the DIVINE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST?
    Potugeuse and Spanish who killed non-catholics were praised by then POPE as the DIVINE SOLDIERS OF CHRIST. I asked many how LTTE fit to be the D.S.C. while they fight for TAMILS who are 95% Hindus.

    Furher POPE declared that his “HARVEST” is in India and in Sri Lanka. What does he mean? Heads or Humans or Paddy?

    As a first step Catholic Church tried to carve out a part as CATHOLIC ENCLAVE in Sri lanka with the help of the LTTE. That is why RANIL too bent and did it. His FOREIGN minister a Sinhala Catholic Tyrrone Fernando praised LTTE supremo Prabhakaran as the TRUE PATRIOT of Sri Lanka.

    Catholic Church talk something in Sinhala areas and just opposite in Tamil areas.

    I am still wandering how HINDUS and BUDDHISTS become opposite poles while both religions have nothing to hate each other!!

  4. Siri Says:

    This is a meaning less article and is mostly unproven Hypothesis. Some of it is correct, but most of it is an active imagination running riot. There are pedophiles in every faith. This is an outcome of celibacy. The Catholic chuch has it’s fair share of Pedophiles. Some of it is true and some is unproven allegations. The Catholic Church has money and so there will be more people trying to get rich quick. The Catholic church in Sri Lanka does not have as money as the Catholic church in America. That is why you do not hear too many allegations against the Priests in Sri lanka. I was a practicing Catholic in Sri Lanka and I know that what L.H . Methananda alledged was unproven. It is a fact that the Christian faiths helped imperialism. Today Catholics in Sri Lanka still blindly follow what the Bishops and Priests say. This is why most Catholics vote for the UNP. I did too when I was in the motherland. Living in the USA for 30 years has opened my eyes and I do not follow the teachings of the church anymore. I have learnt to question all teachings before accepting them. Now I go to the Buddhist Temple some times even though I am not a follower of the Buddha. Buddhism is a way of life, but I know to pick and choose what I want to accept, and discard the rest in the same way as the Christian teachings. The reason why there were many Catholics in the forces and Upper management was because of the English education sysytem in the Catholic schools. This is similar to what the Tamils did. Now with free education and good schools in the villages the field is becoming more level. Over time the situation will level off. Let us not be hasty and throw the Baby with the bathwater. Now I am a firm believer of our President and a supporter of his. This is not the time to start calling names and again start dividing the country on religious grounds. Our President is wise and a good leader. Help him to develop the country and behave like a true Patriot. When the country is more prosperous and there is better sharing of the National wealth, all these divisive problems will disappear. Do not be a rabble rouser and create another problem just as we are coming out of one.

  5. lion Says:

    I have monitored last Sunday’s Lankan English newspapers. Indeed through the sex abuses by Catholic priests’ are the talking point of the whole international community, nothing is mentioned about it in our media in Sri Lanka. So this information – that we are controlled by Catholic action becomes self evident .
    No wonder we had a terror war on our hands for the last 30 years as Mahinda rightly points out.
    Under the circumstances his ‘as an initial measure, we to take control of our national asserts such as ‘Daily News’ and ‘The Sunday Observer’ is a must.
    Indeed if we are to hinder another 30 years of terror inspired by this holy institution, we must act now. We must consider how to proceed!!!

  6. Naram Says:

    As one born to a Buddhist family, continuing to hold that philosophy though not a regular at the temple, may I add few words.

    Celibacy of ‘priests’ if one were to call by that name to close adherents of the leader, was not an essential prerequisite in the time of Jesus Christ or in the time of Buddha. I think Jains demanded hat.

    Catholic church developed enveloping traditions of Rome, and its many beliefs, God Mithra etc. and often in the early days Popes came from the aristocratic families of Italy, who continued to look after their own physical needs, and these are facts recorded in the history as seen in that fact based novel ‘I, Claudius’.

    As to Buddha’s time, there are many canons to support the idea that there was adherent at Jethawana among Buddha’s disciples who caused consternation as he used to go home to till the land and attend to family needs. But he attained Nirvana and with that, of course the practice stopped as his worldly desires disappeared.

    Acts of sexual misconduct among the clergy will be more if the society demands celibacy from this group of people.
    We Buddhists too had our share of Theras involvedin assassinations, rapes, murders not to poke fun at the discomfiture of others.

    But I agree that it is a criminal act if one tries to hide facts or circumvent justice when heinous crimes that have caused untold suffering to thousands come to light.

  7. M.S.MUdali Says:

    Catholic Church is not just a “religious” body. It has HQ at Vatican. Vatican is recognised as a COUNTRY with UN representation and other embassies all over the world. If head of Vatican tells “Buddhism/Hinduism will be erased”, how can we be silent? Is it not an interfearence “in the matters of other country”?

    If India talks on Sri Lanka, we all bark while we have spritual, and historicl connections with India! Then how this Vatican which is part of the INVADERS and destroyers of our country, people etc can “interefere” in the affairs of Sri lanka?

    Mahinda Weerasinghe, you complain that “crucial treatises appearing in the web, written by hawk-eyed and worldly Sri Lankan analysts are hardly exposed in the Lankan news media”. If what you are referring to is anything like the drivel you have just written, then the editors of the country’s newspapers have shown excellent judgement.

    Those who have read your previous articles will find you are running true to form and rambling on in accustomed fashion, apparently with just one objective – to attack the Catholic Church. It is the mixture as before. But if I found your article was bad enough, some of the responses to it (including MS MUdali having two bites of the cherry to repeat his well know views) are no less depressing. I almost despaired until I read Siri’s response which thankfully brings some sanity into the discussion. I share his view that yours is “a meaningless article”.

    I remember the time when it was fashionable to blame the country’s ills on the Federal Party, the CIA or the Catholic Church. I see that it is only the Catholic Church that still remains to be a whipping boy. I don’t know on what basis you say “The Catholic action controlled English media is under strict instructions of what should be reported, and what should be expunged”. As far as I can make out, for you, the Catholic Church is some terrible organization working behind the scenes in an underhand manner to undermine the nation’s interests. What proof do you offer?

    By the way, this is not the first time that the Catholic Church has had to face a crisis. You’d be well advised not to rush to write its obituary with comments like it is “on the verge of folding up. It is bound to collapse soon like a house of cards”. It will certainly survive this crisis as it has weathered similar problems before.

    Siri has already pointed out that the high proportion of Christians occupying prominent positions at the time of Independence was due to the simple fact that Christians had had better access to education in English. This was also the case with the Tamils. Neither was due to some sinister action by the Church. But if we are talking of ‘over-represented’ minorities, why stop at religious and racial minorities? What of e other minorities, like the rich, the privileged and those educated in Colombo schools? They also held – and continue to hold – prominent positions out of proportion to their total numbers. And is that also due to the unseen hand of Catholic Action?

    Siri has said, very sensibly, this is not the time to “again start dividing the country on religious grounds”. His concluding words are just as sane – “Do not be a rabble rouser and create another problem just as we are coming

    Cassandra:
    You just informing your opposition to the article written by Mr. Mahinda Weerasinghe but you are silent on the questions or the concerns raised by Mr. Mahinda or by me.

    The trouble makers are many in Sri lanka. One is Catholic Church. Can you explain why Catholic Church involved with the LTTE activities?

    If you are really concerned about PEACE, please advise the Catholic Church to stop their criminal activities in Sri Lanka.

  12. cassandra Says:

    MSMudali:

    I have more than merely expressed my views, I have countered some of the things he has said. Perhaps, you will care to re-read what I have said.

    As for the alleged involvement of the Catholic Church in LTTE activities, you should be able to distinguish between some Catholic clergy and the Catholic Church as a whole. Whilst some of the clergy was supportive of the LTTE, it does not mean the whole Church was. I hope you can see the distinction.

  13. Mahinda Weerasinghe Says:

    Cassandra informs;
    ‘If what you are referring to is anything like the drivel you have just written, then the editors of the country’s newspapers have shown excellent judgment.’
    So let’s get a fix on some of the obvious ‘drivels’ that I have stated in order to aid the readers to separate fact from fiction.
    Galileo in 1833 published his findings that the earth is going the sun and not vice versa as the Catholic Church’s dogma has it. For this he was summoned to Rome and tried for the crime of heresy by the Catholic Inquisition. Pope Urban VIII was going to roast Galileo alive if he did not retract. So to save his life, he readily accepted as ‘fact’ that the sun was revolving round the earth. Is this the sort of ‘drivel’ that I have been feeding the public?
    Indeed is it a figment of my imagination that there was a murderous institution called ‘Holy Inquisition’ which massacre thousands of people?
    Is it a fact or drivel that hundreds of paedophile Catholic priest were caught with their pants down and the international media is now cheating the world? Indeed the different between the holy Catholic Paedophiles from your garden Varity of paedophiles are that, it is only the Catholic paedophiles who given full protection by the holy Catholic institution?
    Is a Catholic priest Fr. S.J.Emmanuel is presently heading the terror organisation (LTTE) now metamorphosed as GTF or am I imagining this? The vital question in this connection is; was this information relayed to the Sri Lankan public by the Catholic action Controlled media?
    Is it a fact or is it ‘drivel’ that ‘PIUS XII also popularly called the Hound of Hitler’ was totally mum, while the Jews were being gassed in their millions?
    Given a chance by the Catholic media I will provide ample evidence how the Catholic Church kept Sri Lanka in a state of terror the past 30 years.
    For your off the cuff remark that I have provided ‘drivel’ I would wish to return the compliment by stating that, to me you’re belief in the ‘immaculate conception’ and the ‘infallibility of the popes’ is just that.
    Siri points out, ‘The reason why there were many Catholics in the forces and Upper management was because of the English education system in the Catholic schools. This is similar to what the Tamils did.’ If you believe that there was no English educated Buddhist with the independence, read the statistics!
    Finally most readers would wish to know is whether what I have stated above are facts or ‘drivel’ specially the following piece of information which I gave out in, ‘Blind leading the Blind’:
    “[The Holy Roman Church] firmly believes, professes and teaches that none of those who are not within the Catholic Church, not only Pagans, but Jews, heretics and schematics, can ever be partakers of eternal life, but are to go into the eternal fire ‘prepared for the devil, and his angels’ (Mt. xxv. 41), unless before the close of their lives they shall have entered into that Church; (Pope Eugene IV, The Bull Cantate Domino, 1441).”
    Cassendra if you or any good Catholic provides answers to the above raised queries, and especially the last statement, the readers would be most grateful and they would decide for themselves whether I have been misleading them with my ‘drivels’.
    I know for a fact that you can ‘fool some of the people most of the time and all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time’! So simply “burying your head in the sand” doesn’t help!

  14. M.S.MUdali Says:

    cassandra:
    Catholic Church is not a FREE organization. It is under the IRON foot of Vatican.

    When the SOME Catholic clergies supported the Sandisnsta in Nicaragua, all of them were expelled from Catholic Church but none of the TIGER Catholics removed from catholic church. That shows the blessing of POPE to the LTTE terrorists!

  15. cassandra Says:

    MSMUdali,
    So, the “Catholic Church is not a FREE organization. It is under the IRON foor of Vatican”? Really! We learn something new every day.

  16. lion Says:

    Cassandra,

    Why do u go silent when history & facts pertaining the catholic church are stated? It would be wise to reply them point by point rather than getting personal with Mahinda Weerasinghe, just using open ended empty phrases of criticism like ” meaningless article”????,
    It hurts when ones faith is indirectly under attack, but this is nothing about religion, but about an institution that had killed, didvided races and split countries in the name of GOD. You would have to erase most of the history if you are to support your statements and be successful convincing the layman. It would be a tough task indeed to convince people with some knowledge of world history, the best is to target countries with rock bottom GDP, where poor people would trade their religious beliefs for handouts from your esteem organisation, as you quite rightly said as long as there is poverty in the world the catholic church could go on, this is nothing new but an old trick.

  17. cassandra Says:

    Mahinda Weerasinghe,

    Let me respond to your comments of 18th April

    The Galileo episode and the Inquisition brought no credit to the Church and it does not deny they happened. The same goes for the current allegations of sexual abuse by the clergy. But I don’t know why you say “the international media is cheating the world” in relation to this. The international media is in fact relentlessly attacking the Church on this. And I see you have even quoted some related ‘late night’ jokes from US TV shows.

    It does seem Fr SJ Emmanuel was a strong supporter of the LTTE and is active with the
    International Tamil Forum. I don’t dispute that but I question your statement about “Catholic action controlled media”. Perhaps, you will offer some reliable evidence to prove the media is in fact controlled by “Catholic Action”.

    It is NOT a fact that the late Pope Pius XII “was totally mum while the Jews were being gassed in their millions”. What is fact is only that he has been ACCUSED of that. This is a matter of continuing debate, with many people, including prominent Jews testifying to how the late Pope in fact saved the lives of many Jews.

    I did NOT say there were “no English educated Buddhists with the independence”- these are your words, not mine. There is a world of a difference between that and what I said. You have not read properly what I wrote and/or have missed the point of what I wrote. Of course, there were plenty of English educated Buddhists at the time and they were as competent and as erudite as anyone else. WHAT I said was “that the high proportion of Christians occupying prominent positions at the time of Independence was due to the simple fact that Christians had had better access to education in English. This was also the case with the Tamils. Neither was due to some sinister action by the Church”.

    The contents of the Bull Cantate Domino of 1441, to which you refer, does not reflect contemporary Church teaching. The Church has moved on since that was written.

    To revert to what I said earlier – As Siri had said, very sensibly, this is not the time to “again start dividing the country on religious grounds” and “do not be a rabble rouser and create another problem just as we are coming out of one”. But even setting aside such considerations aside, why attack other religions and other people’s beliefs? It can only create discord and spread disaffection. And that certainly will not help in the cause of nation building.

    Let us respect each other’s beliefs, remembering that no-one has a monopoly of right thinking or an exclusive claim to the truth.

  18. Geethal Says:

    The discussion throughout has been on the actions of the Catholic Church in Sri Lanka.
    It is ten days since I suggested specifically that the actions of the Anglican Church of Sri Lanka be investigated. The abuse of power is less in the public eye and the protection afforded is based on stronger Old Boy network. There is a new Minister of Education, who has a grass roots knowledge of Education.
    What happens in Anglican Schools operates at a much higher level. This Church has only 35,000 adherents in all; Anglicans as a group probably has the highest rate of emigration. That is to say their commitment to the country is minimal. They effectively control the most elite schools and since they are so few they selectively admit the most influential members of other communities. The three sons of President Rajapaksa studied at S. Thomas’ throughout. Professor G.L. Peiris has been a member of the Board of Governors for more than 25 years. So it is little wonder that abuses at S. Thomas’ are not investigated.
    The unqualified “Headmaster” at S. Thomas’ Gurutalawa was asked to go by officials acting on the direct orders of former Minister Susil Premajayanth, but these orders are ignored by Bishop Duleep de Chickera. The school was pulled out of its financial mess by a disinterested benefactor – a Belgian Jew domiciled in the area. He quit in disgust of the ineffective administration of the unqualified “Priest Headmaster”, Rev. Marc Billimoria. It has now become clear that Rev. Billimoria, who schools his children elsewhere, does not have the courage to act against paedophiles on his staff.
    The person most to blame is Bishop de Chickera for insisting on appointing this unqualified and uncommitted priest, who was planning to migrate to Australia. The 15 member Board of Governors rubber stamped the appointment, knowing full well that ten years previously the Supreme Court had thrown a “Warden Designate” out of the Mt. Lavinia school. That case was thoroughly argued and the Supreme Court decision (available on the Internet) was balanced and thoughtful. The difference now is that there are no influential parents in this school. So the hapless parents complain to the “Headmaster” of paedophile teachers but nothing happens.
