An Australian investigation into decades of child sexual abuse, involving tens of thousands of victims, called for sweeping changes in the Catholic Church and other organizations, including making celibacy voluntary for clergy and forcing ministers to report abuse concerns that come to light through confession.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:5,6 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Roman Catholic Church has famously bragged over the years that they “never change”, like that’s supposed to be a good thing. But a recent Australian investigation into decades of child sexual abuse cases nationwide has pegged the Catholic Church as the far-and-away, number one offender. Now Australia is demanding that the Vatican amend their canon law to stop forcing thier priests to be unmarried, to force priests to report crimes they hear in confessional booths, and to remove time limits for the Church to take action on child sex abuse cases. In other words, Catholic priests need to stop raping children. 

The broad-ranging probe urged Australia’s Catholic Church to request the Vatican make changes to canon law, including removing limits on the time in which the church can take action on child sexual abuse cases, as well as removing a requirement to destroy documents relating to criminal cases in matters of morals.

It recommended the government make it a criminal offense to fail to report knowledge or suspicions of abuse disclosed in a religious confession. The report said confession had “contributed to both the occurrence of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and to inadequate institutional responses to abuse.”

“Church leaders have viewed child sexual abuse as a sin to be dealt with through private absolution and penance rather than as a crime to be reported to police. The sacrament of reconciliation enabled perpetrators to resolve their sense of guilt without fear of being reported,” it said.

In response, Catholic Archbishop of Sydney Anthony Fisher warned against making changes to confession. He said focusing “on something like confession is a distraction.”

“Any proposal to effectively stop the practice of confession in Australia would be a real hurt to all Catholics and Orthodox Christians, and I don’t think would help any young person,” Archbishop Fisher told reporters.

But the Catholic Bishops Conference, a group of Australian bishops, said it would work with another organization of Catholic leaders to review the report and respond within months. In the U.S., many states require members of the clergy, among other professionals, to report child abuse.

The recommendations, made by Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, were among dozens made in a 17-volume report released Friday. It was the conclusion to a five-year inquiry into how organizations in the country managed and responded to allegations and instances of child abuse.

“Tens of thousands of children have been sexually abused in many Australian institutions,” the report said. “It is a national tragedy, perpetrated over generations within many of our most trusted institutions.”

It said abuse occurred in almost every type of institution, including sports clubs, schools and religious organizations. It wasn’t a case of a “few rotten apples,” it said, with some institutions having had multiple abusers who sexually abused multiple children. The commission accused society’s major institutions of serious failings, exacerbated by a “manifestly inadequate response.”

Launched in late 2012, a six-person commission handled nearly 70,000 calls, letters and emails, and made more than 2,000 referrals to authorities, including the police.

In response to the commission’s preliminary reports, the government already agreed to develop a database to share decisions on background checks for people working with children around the country and introduced reforms to stop registered child sex offenders from traveling overseas without permission, among other actions.

The commission’s recommendations were directed at a number of institutions. But it said that, based on its findings, the greatest number of alleged perpetrators and abused children were in Catholic institutions. It said the power afforded to people in religious ministry and the misplaced trust of parents, combined with institutional culture, had created risks for children. It said alleged perpetrators often continued to have access to children even when religious leaders knew they posed a danger.

“This is a shameful past, in which a prevailing culture of secrecy and self-protection led to unnecessary suffering for many victims and their families,” said Archbishop Denis Hart, president of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

The government of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Friday it would provide 52.1 million Australian dollars (US$39.9 million) to support victims. It also said it would establish a task force to consider and coordinate Canberra’s response to the final report’s recommendations.

“What that commission has done has exposed a national tragedy,” Mr. Turnbull said. source

The Tech Titans Control Every Aspect Of Our Global Society From Determining Your News Feed To Electing Leaders, Can Anything Stop Them Now?

The tech titans have created a world that they own and that they control, not knowing that they are controlled by Satan to carry all this out

The headlines today have been shocking as for most of the day a majority of cell phone users have been experiencing a total blackout of service for still unexplained reasons. Federal agencies are ‘urgently investigating’ whether the massive cellular outage that plagued Americans on Thursday was a cyberattack. It brings to mind the dystopian thriller produced by Barack Obama for Netflix called ‘Leave The World Behind’ about civil war and EMP attacks from the government. One thing is for sure, our global society is controlled by technology and the tech titans to such a degree that everything has become a conspiracy. No one believes anything anymore, and they shouldn’t.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” Matthew 24:4 (KJB)

Just about every headline I see is about something I don’t like, don’t want and didn’t vote for. I watch tech titans with messianic delusions trying to create a techno-theocracy where they rule as gods, determining what we’re allowed to consume on a daily basis. They lock us down, infect us with gain-of-function viruses and then mandate we receive injections for the ‘greater good’, gaslighting us about ‘slight’ side effects as the casualties mount in the millions. The next president? It will be whoever they pick, and whoever it is you’ll get the same result. Don’t be surprised if it’s Michelle Obama. Playtime is over, they’re not taking prisoners. History is being recast, and this time the Nazis win.

People like Bill Gates, Elon Musk, George Soros, and all the others are working in harmony with a single goal in mind, even if they themselves aren’t aware of it. They are preparing this world to receive Antichrist. Everything new invention they fund and release brings us closer and closer to the Mark of the Beast System. We all dream of seeing people like Bill Gates being brought to trial to answer for their crimes, but they never will in this life. Why? Luke 22:53, “…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.”

I wish I had better news for you, but I don’t, we are too far along on the timeline and this sin-cursed lost world has an unbreakable date with the coming Antichrist. So in the meantime, stay in the Book, stand against the world system, help us send out Bibles, and preach deliverance to the captives through the shed blood of Jesus Christ while we wait for the Rapture. That’s the memo.

Shock As Huge Section Of Cell Phone Service Across America Goes Down Leaving People To Ask Is It A Solar Flare Or Possibly EMP Attack?

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down across the US, leaving customers unable to make calls

Citizens all across America got a shock this morning when their mobile phone service went down and out for the count with 54% of all users surveyed saying their service was strongly affected, and a third saying they have no service at all. As I write this, I am one of those people with no service, the ominous SOS sign where my signal used to be. What’s behind all of this? It will be interesting to hear the explanation when it finally comes, but I have a few ideas.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;” Luke 21:25 (KJB)

As we have been telling you for many months, 2024 is a year of continuing momentous change, every bit as much that 2020 was, albeit for different reasons. Whatever the final explanation is on this whole mess, it is highly likely that they pulled the system intentionally. Service outages of this magnitude just don’t ‘happen’, they are planned. EMP, solar flares, there are many things capable of disrupting the system, and as we get closer to the election, be prepared for many more such ‘disruptions’, because they’re coming.

AT&T down with iPhones stuck in SOS mode as people say ‘world is ending’

FROM THE SUN US: Multiple mobile networks including AT&T have gone down across the US with iPhones stuck on SOS mode, leaving panicked customers fearing the ‘end of the world’. Concerned folk across the US are facing major disruptions to their service as several providers have gone down. The outage has caused major disruptions with several police departments warning that people have been unable to call or text 911.

According to Downdetector, AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down. People have taken to X, formerly Twitter, to voice their concern at the major disruption to US mobile networks.

One user wrote: “Confirmation from around the US on a nationwide cellular network outage. Seems to have affected @ATT first, then later reports from other phones on @TMobile @Verizon and more.

“I can’t imagine this is incompetence or a single node failure. Concerned it could be a #cyberattack.”

Other AT&T customers have reported their iPhones being stuck in ‘SOS’ mode as a result of the outage.

 iPhones enter SOS mode when they lose cellular connection, allowing users to still make SOS calls or texts to emergency services on models from the iPhone 13 onwards.

Many X users have grown suspicious of the mass outage impacting so many major providers at once.

One user wrote: “Got the “sos” mode and thought the world was ending.”

Another said: “Anyone else experiencing these “SOS only” outages on @ATT? Is the world ending?”

A third asked: “OK conspiracy theorists and smart people who know more than me…what is behind the cell carrier outage overnight?”

While a fourth added: “AI bots failing… AT&T down… it’s happening folks.” READ MORE
