Nicene Oath of Fealty



"I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds;

God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;

begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man;

and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;

He suffered and was buried;

the third day He rose again, according to Scripture;

ascended onto heaven; sits at the right of the Father;

He shall return in glory, to judge the quick and the dead;

whose kingdom shall have no end.

I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life;

who proceeds from the Father and the Son;

who with the Father and the Son together is glorified;

who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;

I look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come."




Roman Catholic Church

The pope is the head of the oldest monarchy on Earth

5,300 Rare Manuscripts Digitized by the Vatican

"Religion keeps the poor from murdering the rich."

Napoleon Bonaparte



The Roman Catholic Church turns away from God by allowing political expediency to trump natural moral law.

Men and women purporting to work for God may actually turn away from God by supporting a man made institution before following natural moral law.

"On the evening of Saturday April 2, 2005, after receiving the Rite of Extreme Unction, Pope John Paul II passed away.

At this time his chamberlain would have gone to the papal hospital bed and asked the Bishop of Rome a question, "Are you dead?"

There would be no reply from the Pope.

The chamberlain would then pick up a silver hammer and strike the Pope on the head and repeat his question, "Are you dead?"

Again there would be no reply.

The chamberlain would then thrice call out baptismal name of the Pope.

He would then declare the Pope to be dead.

This is the way the Church has determined papal deaths for centuries.

This is the way of the world's oldest monarchy.

Almanach de Gotha lists Holy See under 'Reigning Sovereign Houses':

'The incumbent of the Holy See is considered by Christian sovereign families as the 'Father of the Family of Kings,' his Holiness represents the OLDEST MONARCHY on Earth.' (direct descendent of Christ)

Triple sovereignty of the Pope, Holy See & Vatican City - in fact and in law.

Internationally, the Pope is not subject to any authority on Earth.

Cardinals are considered to be peers of sons of reigning monarchs.

Each diocese is considered to be a royal fiefdom.

The word 'diocese' originally signified an administrative unit devised by the Emperor Diocletian, noted for his persecution of Christians." - Mark Owen



personal empowerment

Where To Now St. Peter?


A free soul needs no intercessor to God !


This enlightened manner of reflecting on reality brings awakening.

This awakening moves the individual towards accepting personal responsibility for existent conditions as well as personal empowerment.

The ultimate awakening to reality occurs when we personally experience a revelation of the infinite eternal power of the divine spark of life.

Awakening into gnosis we find infinite compassion walking hand in hand with God in the Garden of Nirvana on a perfect evening after a perfect day.



Burn Down The Mission


"To be certain one is saved is the sin of presumption and

to be certain one is damned is the sin of despair."

Alan Watts



"A man is lying on a bed.

She moves about him carefully. He stirs faintly, says a few words, asks for a drink, smiles and then becomes silent. That morning she had seen him fold his hands, and she had asked him whether he wanted her to send for a priest.

She goes out, and a few minutes later, a dark-robed priest enters.

"I am dying," says the man on the bed.

"What is your religion?" asks the priest.

"The religion of my own country, Greek Orthodox."

"That is a heresy which you must instantly abjure. There is only one true religion, the Roman Catholic religion. Confess now. I will absolve you ."

"Tell me your sins, repent and everything will be forgiven you."

The sick man is bewildered and begins to get excited.

"Do not be surprised, my son, if my questions are direct and to the point. I ask you in all simplicity, as is my august duty as a priest. Answer me in the same simple spirit, and you will enter into communion with God."

The priest nods toward the door.

"Who is that person?"

"She is a girl," says the dying man. "I took her under my protection when she was a child. She shared the hardships of my traveller's life, and took care of me. I married her before my death because I am rich and she is poor."

"I love her," says the dying man.

"At last, you are confessing!" cries the priest.

The two men scan each other's faces keenly, misunderstanding grows.

"Desiring the flesh of this woman you committed a sin in spirit!"

The dying man draws himself up, incredulous before this vulgar stranger in whose mouth the words of God and truth assume a grotesque aspect.

However, he makes an effort:

"If I have sinned in spirit, to use your words," he said, "it proves that I have not sinned in reality. Why should I repent of what was natural desire?"

"A thought committed in spirit is committed in intention, and therefore in effect, and must be confessed and redeemed".

"I confess I have committed sin, and I repent," says the dying man.

"Tell me the details of yielding to temptation of the evil spirit in you?"

The man was swept by a wave of rebellion.

He half rose and leaned on his elbow, glaring at the stranger, who returned his look steadily.

"Why have I the evil spirit in me?" he demanded.

"You are not the only one. All men have it."

The man sat up again, seized by a new fit of anger which consumed him.

"Then it is God who put it into them, since it is God who made them."

The priest looked at the rebellious man blankly.

"How else could souls be tried?" he said quite calmly.

"Nothing can excuse the suffering of the good."

"I have listened patiently to your ramblings and feel sorry for you. You must prepare to appear before God, from whom you seem to have lived apart. Repent, tell me you believe in the Catholic religion, which will save you."

"Get out!" shouts the dying man. But the priest does not stir.

Goaded by the urgency of the case, impelled by the necessity of saving this soul in spite of itself, the priest becomes implacable.

"You are dying," cries the priest, "You have only moments to live!"

"No," mumbles the dying man.

The black-robed priest catches hold of both his hands.

"Submit. No discussion. You are losing precious time!"

"Ah!" mutters the priest between clenched teeth.

He twists the man's hands in his.

The dying man tries to wrest himself free. There is a dry rattle of fury in his throat. With the remnant of his voice, in a low tone, he gasps, "No!"

"Scoundrel!" cries the priest. And he strikes him in the face. After that neither man moves for a while. Then the priest goes at it again.

"Simply say with me, 'Our Father, who art in heaven.' I ask nothing else."

The dying man moves not.

"At least you will die holding a crucifix," he snarls.

He draws a crucifix from his pocket, and slams it on the dying man's breast.

The dying man shakes himself in , as if the Roman Catholic religion is contagious, and sweeps the crucifix to the floor.

The dying man's face contorts.

The priest stoops, mumbling insults.

"Carrion, you want to die like a dog, but I am here!"

The priest picks up the crucifix, and waits for his final chance.

The dying man pants, completely at the end of his strength.

The priest, seeing him in his power, lays the crucifix on his breast.

This time the dying man has no choice but to let it stay there, unable to do anything but look at it with dying eyes full of hate." - Henri Barbusse

306 Council of Elvira, Spain: a priest who sleeps with his wife the night before Mass will lose his job.

325 Council of Nicea: decreed that after ordination a priest could not marry.

352 Council of Laodicea: women are not to be ordained.

385 Pope Siricius leaves his wife in order to become pope.

Decrees priests may no longer sleep with their wives.

567 2nd Council of Tours: any cleric found in bed with his wife would be excommunicated for a year and reduced to the lay state.

580 Pope Pelagius II: married priests prohibited from handing over church property to wives or children.

598 Pope Gregory declares all sexual desire is sinful in itself.

836 Council of Aix-la-Chapelle openly admits abortions and infanticide take place in convents and monasteries to cover up activities of uncelibate clerics.

St. Ulrich, a holy bishop, argued from scripture and common sense that the only way to purify the church from the worst excesses of celibacy was to permit priests to marry.

964 Pope Benedict V rapes a young girl and abscondes to Constantinople with the papal treasury only to reappear when the money ran out.

1032 Papal miter purchased for the 11-year old Benedict IX.

Upon reaching his 14th year, a chronicler writes Benedict has already surpassed in wantonness and profligacy all who had preceded him.

Benedict often had to leave Rome in a hurry.

1073 Gregory VII is a master forger, surpassing even the great fraud known as the 'Donation of Constantine,' which forged the Papal States.

Gregory has an entire school of forgers turning out document after document bearing the papal seal of approval.

These documents are later systematized in the mid-1100s in Bologna by Gratian, a Benedictine monk.

He calls his work the Decretum, or Code of Canon Law.

The Code of Canon Law is peppered throughout with several centuries of forgeries along with fictional additions by Gratian.

Gregory formalizes the celibacy doctrine in order to curtail gifts of church lands to illegitimate children of priests and bishops.

1181 The first medieval inquisition, the episcopal inquisition, is established in the year 1184 by a papal bull of Pope Lucius III entitled Ad abolendam - "For the purpose of doing away with."

It is a response to the growing Catharist movement in southern France.

1208 A war of terror is waged against the indigenous population of the Languedoc and their rulers: Raymond VI of Toulouse, Raymond-Roger Trencavel, Raymond Roger of Foix in the first generation and Raymond VII of Toulouse, Raymond Trencavel II, and Roger Bernard II of Foix in the second generation.

During this period an estimated half-million Languedoc men, women and children are massacred, Catholics as well as Cathars.

Cathars and Cathar Beliefs in the Languedoc

1227 Pope Gregory IX is known for issuing the Decretales and instituting the Papal Inquisition in response to the failures of the episcopal inquisitions established during the time of Pope Lucius III through his papal bull Ad abolendam issued in 1184.

1316  John XXII sets indulgence prices for crimes from incest to sodomy.

According to Catholic historian Peter de Rosa in his book Vicars of Christ:

"Popes had mistresses as young as fifteen years, were guilty of incest and perversions, had multiple children, were murdered in the act of adultery."

1484   Innocent VIII grants a 20-year Butterbriefe indulgence.

One can purchase the privilege of eating butter, cheese, milk during Lent.

1492  Rodrigo Borgia (Alexander VI) commits his first murder at 12.

Upon assuming the Papal miter he cries, "I am Pope, Vicar of Christ!"

Like his predecessor Innocent VIII, Alexander sired many children, baptized them personally and officiated at their weddings in the Vatican.

He had ten known illegitimate children (including the notorious Cesare and Lucrezia), by his favorite mistress Vannoza Catanei.

When she faded, Borgia took the 15-year old Giulia Farnese.

Farnese obtained a Cardinal's red hat for her brother who became Paul III.

1503  Julius II purchases the Papacy with his own private fortune.

He doesn't even pretend to be a Christian.

Julius, eventually eaten away by syphilis, sires a number of bastards.

1513  Leo X enumerates specific fines for every imaginable crime.

A deacon accused of murder could be absolved for 20 crowns.

Once the indulgence is paid, he could not be prosecuted by civil authorities.

Leo X curses and excommunicates Martin Luther.


"Leo X (Giovanni de Medici) commissioned the Dominican friar Tetzel to sell indulgences which released one from purgatory.

"As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs!"

Pope Sixtus IV charged Roman brothels a Church tax.

Will Durant claims in 1490 there were 6800 registered prostitutes in Rome.

Pius II declared that Rome was the only city run by bastards." - Mark Owen

1563   Council of Trent states celibacy is superior to sexual relief.


Popes who had illegitimate children after 1139

Innocent VIII 1484-1492 several children (not so innocent)

Alexander VI 1492-1503 several children (more than the III)

Julius 1503-1513 3 daughters

Paul III 1534-1549 3 sons, 1 daughter

Pius IV 1559-1565 3 sons

Gregory XIII 1572-1585 1 son


Paul V 1605 - 1621

Urban VIII 1623 - 1644

VICTIMS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

The Right-Wing Doesn't Want to Talk About Christian Atrocities


"Loss of liberty is inimical to all forms of literature.

The fact is certain themes cannot be celebrated in words.

Tyranny is one of them. No one ever wrote a timeless book in praise of the Inquisition." - George Orwell



1231  The pope appoints the first "inquisitors of heretical depravity".

1478  Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition established.

Between 3000 to 5000 people die during 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition.

Politically motivated, it aimed to use religion to foster national unity but later became the object of Protestant anti-Catholic propaganda.

Torture, an integral part of the inquisitorial process, is used to extract confessions as it was part of the systems used by secular courts of the time.

Historians explain the Church regulated torture with clear guidelines.

Unfortunately, limitations on torture never really work.

Torturer’s Apprentice

The Inquisition lasted 782 years, from 1231 until March 13, 2013, when Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, Cardinal-Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly known as the Holy Office and the Roman Inquisition), was confined to the monastery Mater Ecclesiae.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
