Plot Against the Church: Part 4 - Maurice Pinay




Third Lateran Council
Rebukes Clergy Who Fail to Oppose Heretics

The Pope had struck a sore point. A special organisation had to be created, which uncovered the traitorous activity of the seemingly orthodox clergy who in different ways and means supported the revolutionary movements, which then revealed themselves as heresies. For this he made use of a group of idealistic fighters, who were exclusively to devote themselves to the combating of the revolutions. First of all he chose the Dominican monks, to whom later the Franciscans were added.

The prelates were busy with the affairs of their Dioceses and had not enough time for this kind of activity. The same held for the secular clergy. On the other hand the idealistic monks of the Dominican and Franciscan orders, who had made a vow of poverty and zealously defended the Church and Christianity—a remarkable fact in the then clergy, which in general was apathetic and complacent as also in our time—were suited for the great struggle of the Church against the Jews and their heresies.

These monks, who had abandoned the world and riches, the Jews with their principal weapon, bribery, could not bring under control, in order to destroy the defence which the remaining peoples had built up against them over the course of centuries. The Jews were successful in buying for themselves at enormous prices favourable prescriptions from kings, nobles and respected members of the secular clergy. However, the Pope was certain that their attempts with the monks, who in addition had praised poverty, lived in communities without every luxury and were subjected to strict chastity and sacrificial discipline, would fail. The resolution of the Holy See could not have been cleverer and more appropriate. In addition, Francis of Assisi and Santo Domingo de Guzman had founded their meritorious orders in order to preserve Holy Church from the catastrophe threatening it and had for this purpose provided it with a corresponding organisation. Admittedly there existed previously a Bishops' Inquisition and also a kind of Papal one, but Henry Charles Lea asserts correctly that the final Papal Inquisition arose through the Bulls which commissioned the beggar monks with it.

Another pressing problem related to the monks, who filled the whole day with prayers and activities which were prescribed to them by the rules of the order, and spent their whole time with these devout duties, so that they could not effectively fight against the anti-Christian forces. The Popes grasped this serious problem and allowed the Inquisitor monks to specialise in this kind of activity and to spend the necessary time on conducting the deadly struggle against the Jews and their satellites of other heresies, even if as a result the time for prayers and the rest of the duties laid down by the rules of the order became very much contracted. This skilled measure placed legions of monks directly in the service of defence of the Church. Their activity was decisive for their victory over the forces of Satan.

In addition the Pope gave the Inquisitor monks full authority, so that they could overcome the resistances, which were always enormously large, since the Jewish Fifth Column in the clergy did not allow itself to be overthrown without violent resistance. He also gave them the possibility of receiving support from the lay class (laity), i.e. the civil authorities, so that if necessary it could be attained with force what was not possible through persuasion. As is known, Francis of Assisi and Santo Domingo de Guzman founded their beggar orders in spite of the resistance of certain bishops and contributed effectively to perfecting this distinguished defensive-network, which preserved Holy Church and the European peoples, during the three centuries when the Popes in general maintained this condition, from being subject to Jewry.

It is, however, noteworthy that besides some suspect bishops who were against the founding of the Franciscan and Dominican orders and also later against the institution of the Holy Inquisition, the overwhelming majority of prelates— full of virtue and zeal for the defence of Christian order—furthered the origin of these institutions and welcomed them. It is only natural that the Jewish Fifth Column in the clergy has attempted to prevent Holy Church from building up a defence which should destroy and prevent the Fifth Column from causing further harm. But all lies, cunning and slander of the Fifth Column, all their efforts and intrigues before the Popes and the Councils to prevent such a defence and to denigrate and to destroy the true defenders of Europe and Christianity, failed completely in face of the firm conduct of the well-orientated Popes Innocent III, Gregory FX, and John XXII. Hence the embittered struggle could once again end with the victory of Holy Church and the defeat of the synagogue.

In order to discern the great importance of this victory, we need only to compare the gloomy 12th century and the first years of the 13th century, which were distinguished through anarchy, bloody internal struggles, the devastating crusade against the Albigensians, dark plots and constant crimes of the secret Jews and their tools, the heretics, with the rest of the 13th century, which after the lasting victory of Catholicism passed with justice into history as the "golden era of the Church".

This was possible due to the effective defensive measures which the European peoples carried out, under the leadership of the Holy See, in the struggle against the Synagogue of Satan. If these measures had not been effected, the 13th century would have taken on the disastrous features of the gloomy 20th century, when Jewry and its present day heresies, freemasonry and especially Communism, are close at hand to strangle humanity with their claws. Also the activity of the laity was very dangerous for Holy Church and Europe. They pretended, to be unconditionally orthodox and in some cases even enemies of heresy, however stood secretly in connection with it and supported the sectarians and their revolutionary enterprises in the ranks of the orthodox, to whom they caused great harm.

The accomplices of the heretics were without doubt the forerunners of those apparently strict Catholic worldly leaders who at the present day pretend to be loyally bound to Holy Church and utilise Christian-democratic or Catholic and Right parties, to whom they give the most diverse names, in order to promote the triumph of freemasonry and Communism. They even make use of the meritorious Catholic Action, in order to carry through their most Godless activity. At that time, these kinds of traitors who committed the crime of "helping heretics", even though they passed themselves off as Catholics, were vigorously combated by Holy Church as "partisans of heresy", just like clergymen who adopted the same behaviour. The great, renowned 3rd Lateran Council, which began in 1179 in the Basilica of the same name, approved in its Law XXVI a series of measures for prevention of a close association of Christians and Jews.

It was emphatically affirmed that it was necessary to separate the Christians from the Jews, since one only allowed the latter to live among the Christian peoples "out of humanity". Not only were the heretics punished, but also the pseudo-orthodox who supported or concealed them. In Law XXVII it is stated about the heretics: "That they no longer keep their wickedness secret but publicly spread their error and influence the simple and the weak. They and their defenders and protectors are banned, and we forbid anyone to take them into his house or do business with them. Whoever takes this guilt upon himself, will be excommunicated and can receive neither under the pretence of our privileges; nor through approval or from another reason receive sacrificial gifts of a Christian burial. "307) ?> One thus sees that not only heretics were punished with excommunication but also all who supported or concealed them, laymen and clergy alike. This law imposed punishment for these criminals without regard to their standing or the circumstances.

The Catholic leaders, therefore, who fight in their lands to avoid being subjugated by freemasonry or Communism, are constantly betrayed. Again and again ostensibly Catholic leaders, clergy or laymen stab them in the back, men who pretend to serve the Church, but in reality promote in a hypocritical but effective way and manner the triumph of the freemasonic or Communist revolutions, or work for the dictatorships which these heretical sects could set up in many Christian states. If the anti-Communist, anti-Freemasonic and anti-Jewish leaders of Catholicism do not attack the internal enemy with the same energy and efficacy as the outer, they will finally be subjected to the Fifth Column.

Therefore it is not only necessary to unmask the false Catholics in the press or pamphlets publicly, but an organisation must also be created which collects proofs from which is revealed that they are accomplices of Freemasonry or of Communism. Action must then be brought against them by the Church courts on account of heresy or, if their orthodoxy does not allow this, because they are accomplices of heresy, i.e. accomplices of Communism or of Freemasonry. If the trials are published in the press in a seemly way and a commission sent to Rome with the mandate of establishing the truth, the destructive activity of this Fifth Column in the clergy would be hampered, and as a result it will be avoided that the good are consumed by two fires: the Jewish Left and the secret Jewish Right, which supports this Left. All political parties who defend their respective nations should therefore make special efforts, if they do not wish to fall victim to the traditional technique of the pincer movement which secret Jewry has already used for a long time. It may therefore not be tolerated that one people after the other comes under the rule of the Jews and the patriots and real defenders of Christianity are cut down. The parties should have technical advisors for the Church law, for there are countless laws of different Councils and Bulls of the Popes upon which they could support their accusations against the imitators of Judas.

At the conclusion of this Canon 27 there is in addition a terrible punishment decreed, not only against the clergy who support the heretics, but also against those who simply "do not energetically oppose them." This punishment consists in immediate dismissal from their offices, including episcopal sees when it is a matter of Prelates. In the sacred canon it is stated concerning the heretics mentioned: "But the bishops and priests who do not energetically show resistance to them shall be deposed from their offices, until the Holy See has mercy on them."

That is the conclusion of the 3rd Lateran Council, one of the most renowned Ecumenical Councils approved by the Church. If already at this Council the Bishops and Clergy who did not energetically oppose the heresies were dismissed from their offices, what punishment do those cardinals, bishops and clergy then deserve who not only show the Freemasonic or Communist heresies no resistance, but even support them in the most diverse way and manner, as well as those chiefly responsible for the successes of Jewish freemasonry and of Jewish Communism in the last centuries and are the secret immediately effective weapon of those sects, who make possible their successes? Today Christianity, if it wishes to save itself, must seize upon the same defensive measures which freed it then. If it does not do this, we are facing a certain catastrophe.

It must also be stressed that the monastic orders could again play the same role in the salvation of Holy Church and of Christianity. These legions of men, who have sacrificed everything in order to serve God, can be today as in the Middle Ages the deciding factor in the victory of the forces of good. The difficulty, however, is again the same: the strict rules of the Order and prayers take up the greatest part of their time or, better said, almost all their time, and they have therefore no opportunity to participate in the struggle against the Synagogue of Satan and its new heresies, Freemasonry and Communism. We recognise the values of these rules and prayers. But not only the Holy Church but the whole world is on the brink of the abyss, and we are of opinion that today, as at the time of the Lateran Councils, the moment has come to make a heroic resolution. It is today urgently necessary that the rules of the order be altered as then, so that the monks can devote a part, and, if possible, the greatest part of their time to the active struggle against Communism, Freemasonry and the Synagogue of Satan, just as the Franciscans and Dominican-Inquisitor monks did in the Middle Ages, and later the Jesuits.

At a time when the world is on the point of perishing, when Holy Church is threatened by destruction and the monastic orders see themselves facing the danger of extinction, it is impossible that those numerous legions of most important men, who are ready to give all for God, are crippled, without participating actively in a struggle whose outcome is vitally important for themselves. Their direct participation in this new crusade could be decisive, especially if one bears in mind that that religious order is already in itself an international organisation, and that the enemies of Christ, His Church and of mankind are also organised on an international basis, and only such organisations could effectively combat them.

May God our Creator provide the superiors and all other Fathers of this Order with the courage to make a decision which does justice to the circumstances, and adjust the rules of the orders to the requirements prevailing today. Naturally they will encounter cunning energetic resistance from the Jewish Fifth Column in the clergy and especially from the crypto-Jews infiltrated into these Orders, whose characteristic activities are perceived to a much greater extent in those which the Synagogue fears, as for example the Society of Jesus, and to a lesser extent in others. Today, as in the 12th and 13th century, the good must make zealous efforts to overcome all hindrances, and doubtless God will stand by the faithful who courageously and resolutely tackle this noble task, even if they, like Santo Domingo de Guzman and Saint Francis of Assisi, are defeated. In the sequel of this work we will—as always—on the basis of documents and sources of penetrating proof, investigate details about the infiltration of secret Jews into the monastic orders and reveal the harm which they have caused to the defence of the Church, and especially to the Jesuits.
