Christian priests prone to call of flesh, says Kerala nun‎

Most priests prone to call of flesh, says Kerala nun
March 31, 2012 By Jose Kurian

While the Catholic Church is still struggling to come out of the impact of Amen –The Autobiography Of A Nun, penned by Sr Jesme, another nun, 76-year-old Sr Mary Chandy, who had served the Presentation Convent for more than five decades, is all set to rock Kerala with yet another tale of bitter truth replete with incidents of sexual abuse, rape attempts and killing of new-born babies, through her autobiography, Swasthy.

In an exclusive interview to DC on Saturday, the nun said that almost all those who choose the cloister are more vulnerable to the ‘call of the body than the call of the spirit’.

Fondly called Sisteramma, the saree-clad, soft but strong willed nun was at the tiny rented house of Santhisadhan Balamandiram on the outskirts of the border town here, where she lives with 17 abandoned children whom she calls ‘children of God’.

The nun goes back to her own experiences. “I was once the target of rape and when I protested a clergyman’s attempt and carried the issue to the church, it was I, and not he, who was put under tremendous mental pressure”, she said.

Sr Mary left the order 12 years ago. “Now I feel closer to God”, she said.

“In the system when you question the order, what is left for you is only tears and suffering”, she added.

“Most of the nuns succumb to persuasive machinations which result in unwanted babies, sin and situations”, said Sr Mary.

“My autobiography, Swasthy, when published, will surely create a whirlwind of sorts as I have exposed the sequence of many such ordeals I experienced in my 56 years as a nun”, she said.

Is she afraid to go public about such subjects? Or is she rebelling?

“I am not a rebel and am not afraid of anybody, except God”, she said. Sr Mary is of the opinion that there should be people ready to express bitter truths, only then can the system be refined.

“Why does the system allow people who are incapable of keeping their vow of celibacy, to continue in the church? Such people should be allowed to have a gentle exit.

However, the nun is not interested in being photographed. “I expect a storm after the release of the book, we can save the ‘photographs’ for reports after the storm”, she said with a smile.

The publishers, Kairali Books, based at Kannur, is all set to release Swasthy soon.

After nun, former priest writes a tell-all book on sexual exploitation

Shaju Philip Sep 01 2010

Barely a year after a former Catholic nun wrote in her autobiography about the suppressed sexual life and draconian rules within the convents, a former Catholic priest has come out with his own experiences of homosexuality at seminaries, sexual misconduct of priests, lack of transparency in money matters and the unfair approach of superiors.

In his 160-page book, Here is the heart of a Priest, K P Shibu Kalamparambil has written about life he had had to lead as member of the Catholic congregation Vincentian for past 24 years — 11 years as priest, 13 as seminarian.

The 39-year-old former priest left the Catholic order in March 2010, and flew to Doha where he joined as a teacher with an Indian school. A native of Angamaly near Kochi, Shibu has found his leave period to release and distribute the book. “I have faced stiff opposition from the Vincentian congregation and my family alike when I broached the idea of publishing my story.”

His book is an open letter about alleged sexual anarchy of priests, injustice meted out to members and mismanagement of resources at a Catholic order. “Three times I had met with road accident. As my Congregation failed to support me, I had to meet the hospital bills on all occasions.”

“While working as a teacher with the Congregation-run educational institution in Kasargode, I had to face agitations from student outfits. The Congregation did not come to my rescue. When a priest is insulted continuously…, what is the logic in the Church saying that he should suffer everything for Jesus?”

On his early days at Papal Seminary in Pune, Shibu alleges he was sexually abused by senior seminarians. “Homosexual relations were rampant in seminaries. The victims had to suffer silently. If they complain…, both the accused and the victim would be shown the door. Hence, succumbing to the urges of the seniors was the only option….”

“During pastoral work, the seminarians used to travel on cycles. While moving around on a cycle, seminarians made a point to give lift to children. They (children) would be asked to tightly embrace the riding seminarian. Such acts were done with deliberate sexual intention,” he alleges in the book. “There had been incidents of senior seminarians pretending as priests and hearing confessions. ”

He alleges several priests sexually exploited widows or nuns sexually. He also alleges, “Certain priests have no qualms to divert donations from believers for their personal purposes. Church funds should be handled by government agencies….”

Shibu himself is the publisher of his work, which has only 100 copies in the first edition. “I am planning a second edition of 10,000 copies.”

Provincial-General of Vincentian Congregation Fr Paul Puthuva said he would comment after reading the book.

Fr Paul Thelakkattu, spokesperson for the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, said: “Unfortunately the Church is one in which people like him are also living and working…. He has simply betrayed the trust of the faithful.”

In 2009, Sister Jesmy had embarrassed the Kerala Catholic Church by writing about her sexual encounters with priests in her work Amen.

Mother Teresa Is a Fraud, Says Former Catholic Sister

Former Catholic Sister Says Even Mother Teresa Is a Fraud

According to Susan Shields, Mother Teresa ‘harmed her helpers as well as those they helped.’

By Greg Szymanski
June 6, 2007

For nine years Susan Shields worked as a devoted Catholic Sister, working for Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity. When finally becoming fed-up in 1989, she left Mother Teresa in disgust over the misuse of millions in charitable donations that never got to their destination — the poor and afflicted.

Shields story was recently sent to the Arctic Beacon, as printed in the
Free Inquiry Magazine, revealing how Mother Teresa really turned a blind eye to the poor while millions of dollars in donations are still sitting
in Vatican bank accounts.

Here is her story entitled “Mother Teresa’s House of Illusions:
How She Harmed Her Helpers As Well As Those They `Helped’

“Some years after I became a Catholic, I joined Mother Teresa’s
congregation, the Missionaries of Charity. I was one of her sisters for
nine and a half years, living in the Bronx, Rome, and San Francisco, until
I became disillusioned and left in May 1989. As I re-entered the world, I
slowly began to unravel the tangle of lies in which I had lived. I
wondered how I could have believed them for so long.

“Three of Mother Teresa’s teachings that are fundamental to her religious
congregation are all the more dangerous because they are believed so
sincerely by her sisters. Most basic is the belief that as long as a
sister obeys she is doing God’s will. Another is the belief that the
sisters have leverage over God by choosing to suffer. Their suffering
makes God very happy. He then dispenses more graces to humanity. The
third is the belief that any attachment to human beings, even the poor
being served, supposedly interferes with love of God and must be
vigilantly avoided or immediately uprooted. The efforts to prevent any
attachments cause continual chaos and confusion, movement and change in
the congregation. Mother Teresa did not invent these beliefs – they were
prevalent in religious congregations before Vatican II – but she did
everything in her power (which was great) to enforce them.

“Once a sister has accepted these fallacies she will do almost anything.
She can allow her health to be destroyed, neglect those she vowed to
serve, and switch off her feelings and independent thought. She can turn
a blind eye to suffering, inform on her fellow sisters, tell lies with
ease, and ignore public laws and regulations.

Women from many nations joined Mother Teresa in the expectation that they
would help the poor and come closer to God themselves. When I left, there
were more than 3,000 sisters in approximately 400 houses scattered
throughout the world. Many of these sisters who trusted Mother Teresa to
guide them have become broken people. In the face of overwhelming
evidence, some of them have finally admitted that their trust has been
betrayed, that God could not possibly be giving the orders they hear. It
is difficult for them to decide to leave – their self-confidence has been
destroyed, and they have no education beyond what they brought with them
when they joined. I was one of the lucky ones who mustered enough courage
to walk away.

“It is in the hope that others may see the fallacy of this purported way
to holiness that I tell a little of what I know. Although there are
relatively few tempted to join Mother Teresa’s congregation of sisters,
there are many who generously have supported her work because they do not
realize how her twisted premises strangle efforts to alleviate misery.
Unaware that most of the donations sit unused in her bank accounts, they
too are deceived into thinking they are helping the poor.

“As a Missionary of Charity, I was assigned to record donations and write
the thank-you letters. The money arrived at a frantic rate. The mail
carrier often delivered the letters in sacks. We wrote receipts for
checks of $50,000 and more on a regular basis. Sometimes a donor would
call up and ask if we had received his check, expecting us to remember it
readily because it was so large. How could we say that we could not
recall it because we had received so many that were even larger?

“When Mother spoke publicly, she never asked for money, but she did
encourage people to make sacrifices for the poor, to “give until it
hurts.” Many people did – and they gave it to her. We received touching
letters from people, sometimes apparently poor themselves, who were
making sacrifices to send us a little money for the starving people in
Africa, the flood victims in Bangladesh, or the poor children in India.
Most of the money sat in our bank accounts.

“The flood of donations was considered to be a sign of God’s approval of
Mother Teresa’s congregation. We were told by our superiors that we
received more gifts than other religious congregations because God was
pleased with Mother, and because the Missionaries of Charity were the
sisters who were faithful to the true spirit of religious life.

“Most of the sisters had no idea how much money the congregation was
amassing. After all, we were taught not to collect anything. One summer
the sisters living on the outskirts of Rome were given more crates of
tomatoes than they could distribute. None of their neighbors wanted them
because the crop had been so prolific that year. The sisters decided to
can the tomatoes rather than let them spoil, but when Mother found out
what they had done she was very displeased. Storing things showed lack of
trust in Divine Providence.

“The donations rolled in and were deposited in the bank, but they had no
effect on our ascetic lives and very little effect on the lives of the
poor we were trying to help. We lived a simple life, bare of all
superfluities. We had three sets of clothes, which we mended until the
material was too rotten to patch anymore. We washed our own clothes by
hand. The never-ending piles of sheets and towels from our night shelter
for the homeless we washed by hand, too. Our bathing was accomplished
with only one bucket of water. Dental and medical checkups were seen as
an unnecessary luxury.

“Mother was very concerned that we preserve our spirit of poverty.
Spending money would destroy that poverty. She seemed obsessed with using
only the simplest of means for our work. Was this in the best interests
of the people we were trying to help, or were we in fact using them as a
tool to advance our own “sanctity?” In Haiti, to keep the spirit of
poverty, the sisters reused needles until they became blunt. Seeing the
pain caused by the blunt needles, some of the volunteers offered to
procure more needles, but the sisters refused.

“We begged for food and supplies from local merchants as though we had no
resources. On one of the rare occasions when we ran out of donated bread,
we went begging at the local store. When our request was turned down, our
superior decreed that the soup kitchen could do without bread for the

“It was not only merchants who were offered a chance to be generous.
Airlines were requested to fly sisters and air cargo free of charge.
Hospitals and doctors were expected to absorb the costs of medical
treatment for the sisters or to draw on funds designated for the
religious. Workmen were encouraged to labor without payment or at reduced
rates. We relied heavily on volunteers who worked long hours in our soup
kitchens, shelters, and day camps.

“A hard-working farmer devoted many of his waking hours to collecting and
delivering food for our soup kitchens and shelters. “If I didn’t come,
what would you eat?” he asked.

“Our Constitution forbade us to beg for more than we needed, but, when it
came to begging, the millions of dollars accumulating in the bank were
treated as if they did not exist.

“For years I had to write thousands of letters to donors, telling them
that their entire gift would be used to bring God’s loving compassion to
the poorest of the poor. I was able to keep my complaining conscience in
check because we had been taught that the Holy Spirit was guiding Mother.
To doubt her was a sign that we were lacking in trust and, even worse,
guilty of the sin of pride. I shelved my objections and hoped that one
day I would understand why Mother wanted to gather so much money, when
she herself had taught us that even storing tomato sauce showed lack of
trust in Divine Providence.”

Rwanda and genocide committed by loving Catholic Church

It is not likely Rwanda experienced any genocide in its history until it was gifted with the religion of Jesus, the religion of love, justice and mercy —Christianity. If Rwandas have any brains they will throw away this demonic cult and go back to their own traditional religion.


At the dawn of the twenty-first century the Catholic Church once more came to the fore within the context of genocide, that which took place in Rwanda. In determining the culpability of various parties in the Rwandan genocide, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) has drawn attention to various horrific episodes meriting close examination. Allegations have been made suggesting that several members of the Catholic clergy incited hatred against the Tutsi and moderate Hutu. This claim is significant in that as many as 62 percent of the Rwandan population is Catholic, and the country’s former president, the late Juvenal Habyarimana, himself enjoyed the patronage and support of the Catholic Church. The role of the Church in this particular genocide has not been fully determined.

The main allegation concerning the Church is that it switched its allegiance from the Tutsi elite to the creation of a Hutu-led revolution, thereby assisting in Habyarimana’s subsequent rise to power in a majority Hutu state. In terms of the actual genocide, critics once again hold the Church directly responsible for inciting hatred, sheltering perpetrators, and failing to protect those who sought refuge within its walls. There are also those who believe that, as the spiritual leader of the majority population in Rwanda, the Church is morally responsible for failing to take all available measures to end the killing.

The discussion on remedies for atrocities has also reached international courtrooms, with the Church through its clergy being directly implicated. Belgium, in keeping with its stance on universal jurisdiction in cases concerning grave breaches of human rights, has sought to prosecute priests and nuns alleged to have played a significant role in the events leading up to the genocide. It handed down sentences of fifteen and twelve years to two nuns who were convicted for their involvement in the slaughter of approximately five thousand civilians who had sought refuge in their monastery at Sovu in Rwanda. Witnesses testified that the two nuns had directed the death squads to the civilians’ place of refuge; some even stated that the nuns had assisted in the pouring of petroleum in a bid to burn down the monastery with civilians still inside.

Some more on the amazing love of Christians that we Hindus keep hearing of. the end result will be more erm like this

Rwanda priest: tried for genocide

Christian white supremacist mindset claims “Pope Benedict XVI has created India’s first woman saint

Christian church is obsessed with race
Published:Oct 26, 2008

It is a white supremacist mindset that claims “Pope Benedict XVI has created India’s first woman saint”.

Sister Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception is not “India’s first woman saint” but the first Christian, or more specifically Catholic, woman saint in India. India has many woman saints belonging to the homegrown faiths.

If race consciousness were not so pronounced in the Christian church, especially the Catholic church, she would have been a saint for the entire Catholic world.

After all, the media did not refer to Mohammed Siddique Khan, the mastermind of the London bombings of July 7 2005, as a British terrorist (although he was born in Britain) but as an Islamic terrorist.

Similarly, a Catholic saint, even if born in India, is a Catholic saint, not an Indian saint.

For instance, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, although he resided in the West for a great number of years, was always described in the media as an Indian Rishi, Yogi, spiritual master, etc.

On the other hand, Swami Vidyanand is white and Bhakti Swami Thirtha Krishnapad is an African American but are revered by all Hindus, regardless of race. There is no talk of white swami or African American swami.

Another noteworthy example of the Christian obsession with race was the picture of former Miss Deaf World, the lovely Candice Morgan, sporting a symbol of Hindu affirmation, the bindi, on her forehead. On April 15 2007, in an interview on the TV1 programme Spirit Sundae, Morgan stated that she was a Christian.

Many Indian Christians have taken to sporting such symbols of Hindu affirmation in the new South Africa in order to repackage their racism as culture, in order to segregate themselves from Christians of other races, especially black Christians.

Some Indian Christians no longer want to be buried in what used to be called “sanctified ground” but choose to enter the Christian heaven via the back door, the Clare Estate Hindu Crematorium, previously regarded as a “demonic” place! These are the clever ways of racism. —

Pope Tells India His Church Has a Right to destroy Hinduism

When the Pope says he has a right to evangelize — that is from his point of view. But from a Hindu viewpoint, what the Pope is saying is  has the fundamental right to annihilate religion and replace it with the Catholic cult.  Even Hitler would have said, he had the right to commit genocide on Jews.  Both Hitler and the Pope are children of the same intolerant,  hate mongering Christian religion. In the  last bastion of ancient  that the pope wishes to destroy.

Pope Tells India His Church Has a Right to Evangelize
Published: November 8, 1999
Summoning all his moral authority, Pope John Paul II tried today to persuade leaders of other religions here that interfaith understanding should lead them to recognize the Roman Catholic Church’s right to evangelize.

”Religious freedom constitutes the very heart of human rights,” the pope, on a three-day visit to India, said at a interreligious gathering that included Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jews and representatives of several other faiths. ”Its inviolability is such that individuals must be recognized as having the right even to change their religion, if their conscience so demands.”

But that is an argument that many religious leaders in India accept only with difficulty. Christian conversions are at the heart of a political and religious dispute that has made the 79-year-old pope’s visit a tense one. Christian proselytizing is fuel for Muslim fundamentalists, but it is also a source of uneasiness between the pope and some of his more moderate and like-minded religious peers.

”Conversions are a fundamental right,” Samdhong Rinpoche, a Buddhist monk who is the speaker of the Tibetan Parliament in exile, said after leaving the podium he shared with the pope. ”But what we fear is that between indoctrination and anybody’s inner-consciousness to choose his religion, there is a clean line.”

”Any kind of action to encourage, or to persuade or to motivate in favor of any particular religion, that is a form of conversion that we as Buddhists cannot recommend,” the monk said.

All the religious leaders who met with the leader of the Roman Catholic Church in a lecture room in the Palace of Science here praised the pope’s efforts to promote mutual respect and joint responsibility for addressing social ills. Shri Ezekiel Isaac Malekar, a New Delhi rabbi, draped a Jewish prayer shawl around the pope.

To fervent applause, Shankaracharya Madhavananda Saraswati, a moderate Hindu leader who has criticized fundamentalist protests against the visit, clasped the pope’s hand and held it high in the air, like tennis partners celebrating a Wimbledon doubles victory. Afterward, however, the Hindu leader also expressed private misgivings about Christian evangelization.

He said later that Hindus could not really ever be diverted from their original faith: ”Religion comes from the heart. Something may change outwardly, but what is inside remains with the human being forever. That does not change.”

The pope, who came to India to close a synod of Asian bishops, has declared the evangelization of Asia, where Catholics remain a tiny minority, to be one of the church’s top priorities for the next millennium. He said it was a ”mystery” why Christ is largely unknown on the continent and added, ”The peoples of Asia need Jesus Christ and his Gospel.”

In India, however, Hindu fundamentalists accuse Christian missionaries, who are most active in poor rural and tribal areas, of preying on the most susceptible in society — buying their souls with education, medical aid and economic assistance.

Anti-Christian attacks by Hindu fundamentalists, often encouraged by political extremists, have increased dramatically in the last two years, with more than 150 recorded incidents of church lootings, beatings, rapes and killings. In Orissa, the state that was recently devastated by a cyclone, a missionary and his two young children were killed in January.

The pope came to India with two agendas: He preached ardently for religious tolerance for all faiths, but also instructed his own to convert new followers. To even the mildest leaders of other religions, the two messages do not easily blend.

”Religious people are more busy with increasing the number of their followers rather than paying attention to the challenges that beset religion,” Acharya Mahapragya, head of the Jain faith, said at the podium. Speaking through a lavender-colored surgical mask — Jains are Hindus who revere all forms of life and veil their speech to prevent their breath from destroying living micro-organisms — he was the only leader, besides the pope, to address the issue of conversions publicly.

In the current climate, some Indian Catholics say, their simplest acts of charity are misunderstood. ”We help people with scholarships and medical aid,” said Bartholomew Abraham, 40, a businessman who traveled almost 1,500 miles by train to see the pope. ”If we were really bribing converts, after 2,000 years we wouldn’t still only be 2 percent of the population.”

The pope wants church leaders to adapt their pastoral style to suit the culture and customs of their native lands, and he showed the way today by presiding over a colorful sitar Mass for 40,000 worshipers in Nehru Stadium. The Mass coincided with the most important Hindu celebration of the year, Diwali, the festival of light, which was noisily celebrated all over New Delhi with fireworks. At the Mass, under a huge abstract poster of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, women in brown and gold saris danced before the altar while a choir of sitar-players performed Indian-style hymns.

Fearing disturbances during the Pope’s visit, the government tightened security throughout the city, bringing in 3,500 armed paratroopers to assist the city’s 55,000 police officers. Protests near papal venues were banned, and would-be demonstrators swiftly arrested.

But there were odd lapses. Before the Pope arrived, his bulletproof popemobile was parked, unguarded, at an entrance to the stadium, as people streamed past. Anyone carrying a ticket to the Mass could have slipped an explosive under the vehicle before passing through security.

At the altar, however, scrutiny was far more intense. One top-ranking Vatican official, who wore a cassock and had all the right credentials, was repeatedly stopped and searched by zealous security officers, a Vatican official noted. India is no stranger to assassinations by people in close proximity to the victim, including the killing of Indira Gandhi by one of her own bodyguards.

Bhai Manjit Singh Sahib, a representative of the Sikh faith, was delayed by security officers, who would not allow him to enter unless he surrendered his sword. After 25 minutes, he prevailed, walking in carrying a gleaming, four-foot silver sword, which he placed on the desk before him.

”The sword is a symbol of my religious authority,” he said indignantly after the event. ”It is not a question of security; it is a religious symbol, and I carry it with me everywhere.”

John Paul, who has symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other ailments, looked weak and physically spent on much of the trip. Usually, the Vatican is tight-lipped about the pope’s condition. But a pamphlet about his visit prepared by the archdiocese of New Delhi described with unusual candor some of the precautions taken to accommodate the pope’s ”poor health.”

The guidebook proudly described the ”elevator platform” built behind the altar ”as he is unable to walk well or climb too many steps.” It described the chemical toilet installed for his use during the three-hour Mass event, as well as special papal thrones to enable him ”to restrict the trembling of his arm.” It also explained that the seat was specially designed to allow the pope to rise without assistance.

The passage concluded, ”An ambulance and medical staff will be on standby just behind the main altar throughout the ceremony.”

Kerala Bishop sprinkles human blood in bizzare Christian ritual

Kerala bishop admits to ‘bloody blessing’
By Ashraf Padanna

KOCHI: A controversial Kerala bishop has admitted conducting a blessing ceremony with the blood of a 26-year-old woman he has adopted.

In a letter distributed among some 100 priests in his diocese who gathered at the Bishop’s House, Fr John Thattumkal of the Latin Catholic Diocese of Kochi said he conducted the blessing with human blood considering it as that of Jesus Christ.
Considered a black magic ritual and disapproved by the official church, the ‘bloody ceremony’ was conducted to bless the bishop’s residence itself. The bishop said he had his own interpretation of the Bible and it was purely personal.

“I said the usual prayers while blessing the Bishop’s House. If anybody has any objection to this, any Catholic priest can bless the house anew,” Thattumkal said. “I have confessed to this before the Apostolic Nuncio on October 10.”

The meeting of the priests was called by the bishop on Monday. But some of them refused to enter the house saying it was blessed with blood. They entered only after a senior priest blessed it with holy water.

Many priests and the laity have asked the bishop to step down and have requested the papal office in Vatican to initiate punitive action against him, including disrobing. The Latin Catholic church has ordered a probe into the issue.

The 58-year-old Bishop adopted the woman saying he was impressed by her “spiritual powers”. He said their relationship was purely spiritual and he registered the adoption with a government office to give it civil validity giving her right to inherit his properties. He, however, apologised for the spiritual crisis that his actions have created in his diocese.
He also apologised for all his statements and deeds that had hurt the priests and the laity.

“I know my deeds have caused confusion and concern among the laity and also among the priests. If the church higher-ups ask me to withdraw from the adoption, I am prepared to do so,” reads the letter written by the bishop.
Not satisfied with the explanation, the priests insisted that the bishop had erred seriously and he should step down.

“The bishop told them that he was ready to quit if the Vatican finds him guilty,” said the Cochin Diocese’s public relations officer Fr Antony Thampy, who admitted that the woman stayed at the guesthouse in the Cochin bishop’s compound for some time after the adoption. Thattumkal’s superior Archbishop Daniel Acharuparambil and the Apostolic Nuncio (Vatican ambassador) to India Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana have already submitted their reports to the Vatican.

At St Lawrence Church where he led the holy mass on Sunday, the bishop criticised his detractors saying his conscience was clear and he would come out unscathed.
Catholic priests here believe the action of the bishop is a violation of the church law since he is a father figure for all believers under his diocese and there should not be discrimination. It has also no precedence.

Thattumkal, himself a Canon Law expert, however, justified his action arguing that there had been instances where priests and bishops had adopted children.

Satanic Christian headmaster bars 15 Hindu students wearing sacred beads

This is what is called Christian plans to commit genocide of Hindu religion. They first came in as guests, refugees, but note how evil and genocidal their mind works!

They are minorities but they show disrespect to the majority. Will the United States brook such nonsense. Such Christian schools should be outright stopped from functioning in India.  Say No to intolerant Christians.

Students barred for wearing sacred beads
Express News Service 04 Oct 2008

TIRUNELVELI: Fifteen students of a school in Palayamkottai on Friday were told to stay away until they removed a chain from their neck that had sacred beads.

The students of Cathedral Higher Secondary School returned to school after their quarterly holidays. Noticing the thread of sacred beads around their neck, the watchman asked them to meet the headmaster.

The headmaster, Asir Deva Manickam Rajkumar, reportedly gave them a choice: remove the beads or stay away from school. The students’ plea that wearing the beads was part of the rituals followed at the Mutharamman temple at Kulasekarapattnam fell on deaf ears.

Finally, the students left and informed their parents about the incident.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party and Hindu Munnani functionaries thronged the school and raised slogans against the headmaster. They asked the school authorities to allow the students to attend classes.

Taken back by the sudden turn of events, the school authorities asked the students to come back.“When I came to school, I was asked by the headmaster to remove the beads.When I refused to do so, he asked me to leave the school,” said a student. The headmaster, however, denied the charge.

Boorish Bangalore Archdevil ready to die for Christian imperialism

It sure feels good to see these Christian scums on the defensive. How many times  they have denigrated our beloved Hindu gods.  Christians are on a genocide campaign in India to cleanse it of Hinduism and Hindus and Hindus have to confront these dangerous semitic cultists. Their plan is to eventually turn Hindus like what they did to American natives and hundreds of other prechristian religions.

Ready to die for Christ, Bangalore Archbishop tells Yeddyurappa
23 Sep, 2008, 0436 hrs IST,Gabriel Vaz, ET Bureau

BANGALORE: BJP chief minister B S Yeddyurappa got a taste of the wrath and anguish of the Christians over the continued attacks against churches in different parts of Karnataka from no less a person than the Archbishop of Bangalore Rev Dr Bernard Moras when he bluntly said that he was “ready to shed blood and give his life for Christ.’’

When the chief minister called on the Archbishop along with senior cabinet colleagues, including home minister Dr V S Acharya, on Monday afternoon soon after an emergency cabinet meeting, a visibly upset Dr Moras, who returned from a visit to the Holy Land early Monday morning, greeted the visitors with a grim face without the customary geniality and blurted out his anguish: “I am deeply hurt and saddened. This is not a happy occasion to meet the head of the state.”

“The church and the entire Christian community not only in Karnataka but all over India and even abroad is terribly angry and upset at the desecration of its sacred places, especially the blessed sacrament in the sanctum sanctorum, which is the Living Body of Christ,” the Archbishop said deploring the attempts to dismiss the incidents as minor involving petty thefts or burglary.

“For Christians, the blessed sacrament is the most holy religious symbol signifying the body and blood of Christ. I am prepared to shed blood and give my life for the cause of Christ and Christians,’’ he said.

Taken aback by the rude and uncivil welcome from the Archbishop, who is also the president of Karnataka Catholic Bishops’ Council, the chief minister gave up the courteous gesture of presenting a bouquet of flowers brought by his staff and straightway sought to enlighten the Archbishop and his aides on the various steps taken by the government to contain the situation and prevent recurrence of the incidents.

The chief minister apprised the Archbishop of state cabinet decision to invoke the provisions of Goonda Act, 1985, against anybody responsible for the attacks against churches and Christian institutions irrespective of whether they belonged to Bajrang Dal or any outfits or political parties.

Mr Yeddyurappa, who has been regularly meeting governor Rameshwar Thakur to brief him on the government’s steps to maintain communal harmony and law and order situation since the outbreak of violent attacks against churches and their places of worship, had another major cause for worry following the Congress-led UPA regime’s move to rush a high-level official team headed by Union special secretary (internal security) M L Kumawat to Mangalore and other affected places in the state.

The decision to despatch a Central team close on the heels of the public threats of invoking Article 355 against Karnataka, which is considered a precursor to dismissal under Article 356, has put the onus on the government to rein in all Sangh Parivar outfits on rampage.

Congress president and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi is also likely to visit Mangalore and Udupi to study the situation and the date for the visit is expected to be finalised shortly, according to union minister of state for labour Oscar Fernandes, who hails from Mangalore. Senior Congress leaders Veerappa Moily, Margaret Alva and Janardhana Poojary have also visited the state.

Condemning the continued attacks against churches since the last eight days starting from the violent incidents in Mangalore on last Sunday, the Archbishop impressed upon the chief minister to ensure that the rights of minorities enshrined in the Constitution to practice, profess and proclaim their faith must be protected and stringent action must be taken against all fanatic and fundamentalist forces.

He also demanded action against policemen guilty of forcibly entering churches and physically assaulting innocent people including nuns, women and children. “The righteous indignation and anger of Christian faithful against the attackers and police must not be equated with other normal criminal activities and all innocent persons arrested and detained must be released and the cases against them must be withdrawn forthwith,’’he said.

Earlier, briefing reporters after the emergency cabinet meeting, the chief minister said five persons have been arrested and their vehicles seized in connection with the proselytisation in Madikeri. The police recovered books, pamphlets and CDs from their vehicles.

Sydney, September 3: A former Catholic priest has been charged with 60 fresh offences relating to sex assaults on boys while he was working at a prestigious boarding school in the 1970s and 80s, reports said on Wednesday.
Police would not confirm the identity of the man, saying only that they had arrested a 65-year-old in southwestern Sydney and that he has since been released on bail.

“He was taken to Hurstville police station where he was charged with 60 matters relating to historic sexual assault,” a New South Wales police spokeswoman said.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation said the suspect was a former Catholic priest who taught at St Stanislaus’ College in Bathurst, west of Sydney, in the 1970s and 80s.

he college made headlines last month after former students came forward alleging they were molested during late-night prayer sessions.

The former priest has already appeared in Bathurst Local Court in August on 33 other charges relating to sexual assault and acts of indecency on juveniles aged between 10 and 18.

Reports said his court appearance prompted eight more alleged victims to make further allegations against the former cleric.

The man’s lawyer, Greg Walsh, said his client had emphatically denied the allegations and he was concerned that the latest complaints had emerged only “as a result of gross contamination” in the media.

“The real concern here is whether someone such as my client can obtain a fair trial in these circumstances,” he told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.
