The Vatican (Hitler) looted Holocaust money

Updated on January 31, 2012

Seventy times seven Papal apologies are not enough

One Papal apology will not suffice. Seventy times seven Papal apologies will not do much good.

Under Führer Adolph Hitler's command, which started in 1933 and ended with his suicide on April 30, 1945, close to six million of jews were exterminated during the Holocaust. This equals Israel's population, the state of Missouri, the total amount of Walgreens' clients or the city of Houston, Texas.

No wonder they called it a genocide. The Führer's movement, since a bit before taking off on its killing campaign, received significant support from both North American corporations and the Vatican. This support did not halt as the exterminations were on the rise. Bush Family, specifically Mr. Prescott Bush, grandfather to former United States president, Mr. George W. Bush, amassed great part of his fortune during these years greatly due to his support to Hitler. There is evidence that includes the Vatican in assisting in the transfer of property looted during the Holocaust, most in the form of gold bars.

The Vatican turns its apologies into sarcasm and in fact lies when it says that it is sorry of being indifferent towards the atrocities committed against the Jew people.

Being indifferent implies negligence or having done nothing to prevent this, which in turn is the sin of omission, according to Catholic or Christian beliefs. Nevertheless, the evidence is clear that the Catholic Church participated in helping the antisemitic cause by facilitating Vatican passports to Nazi leaders, as they were fleeing to avoid being prosecuted for war crimes. By the same token, the Vatican, still today retains in its shelves a considerable part of the fortune that was stolen from the Jews before their extermination, as the money trail stops with them, or according to the accusations of Holocaust descendants.

So the Catholic Church apologizes, but lies and hides the truth in regards to its participation in the Holocaust. And by retaining monies to which they are not rightfully entitled to, it takes what does not belong to them, so it also steals. The Vatican steals, lies, kills and abuses sexually and in any other way. And commits the sin of pride by not including homosexuals and pagans in its apologies.

Billions of dollars, in its USD equivalency, were transferred to Switzerland some time before World War II. A report from the U.S. Treasury Department reveals that the Vatican received and hid a total of 200 million francs that the Ustashe regime took from about 900,000 Holocaust victims. In 2010, the Vatican won a legal battle that demanded to reveal its financial archives. But the Vatican Bank has a powerful immunity, their assets are reported among their own ministers, being the Pope the oficial and main auditor of his own self.

It is estimated that the Vatican Bank ranks out Switzerland as the preferred destiny for money laundering. On June 1, 2011, the Government of Italy liberated 33 millions of dollars that it had frozen while it conducted a long investigation on the matter. Reports indicate that, as of today (2011) approximately 55 billions of dollars have been laundered through the Vatican Bank, its real name is the Institute of Religious Works.

When they go to confess their sins, the believers, after expressing their grief and their guilt, are excused by the minister with: "Go on and sin no more".

The Church has no intention of distancing itself from its empire of power, thus it cannot detach from its infamous acts, or its sins, so its apologies are in themselves a lie.

The case of Galilei, Darwin and neopagans

This is why, by the same token, it wasn't until 1992 (or 1983) that the Vatican issued his apology to astronomer Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) for publishing his discovery on the orbiting of the Earth around the Sun.

If Earth was not to be accounted for the center of Universe, Church saw this as a threat to its authority, but instead of acknowledging this, Pope John Paul II, said in his apology that sometimes people just don't know how to react to new different ideas... tell that to the victims of the Crusades, among other millions of souls.

In spite of this, in 2008 the Vatican practically took back this apology to Galileo. The Church is now hesitant in various positions, for example, in 1950, the Pope had declared that he saw nothing wrong with studying evolution, although still today the Vatican is yet to issue an apology to Darwin. Is not about knowing, is about power, and many clergy members are very clear on this matter.

The Anglican Church did apologize to Darwin though, some 126 years later. They apologized for having censored the scholar for going public on his theory of evolution. The Catholic Church remains firm on its position that Darwin philosophy goes against the Bible, so this man of science does not merit an apology. His descendants say why bother.

In regards to Neopagans, the Church doesn't even mention them. Yes it does apologizes for the abuses committed against the gypsies, but not against the burning of midwives that were considered witches, and other persons, women by the most part, that were persecuted for the sin of living alone without the need and the protection of a man.

      Thank you, what baffles me is why the people keep defending the powerful, when the powerful, in turn, could care less about them.

      This is an awesome hub. The Catholic Church was well aware of the Holocaust. However, it was silent because of a long tradition of anti-Semitism in the Catholic Church. Furthermore, it views the Nazis as a bulwark against the so-called Communist threat. The Catholic Church is solely about power, not caring for its members. The Catholic Church is one of the wealthiest institutions of the world. The acquiring of monies means immense power and the Catholic Church intends to use its power and remain in power. Power is the name of the game. Again, great hub.
