        I have only been able to make this possible, from the day I published my first website in 1996 to this day, by paying the full freight of my WWW mission out of my own pocket, rather than expecting my guests to pay those costs through their donations, or third-party business interests to pay them, through the pasting of their commercials all over my web-pages.

Why are Roman Catholics and
other conservative Christians
so terrified of the light ?

According to the Gospels, Jesus was hated, condemned and sentenced to death, not by atheists, but by clerics, bible scholars and other supposedly pious folk who thought they knew and loved God and that – in order to protect God –    they needed to kill this blaspheming radical revolutionary Jesus, 
        And Jesus warned that, to the extent that his followers actually lived as Jesus did and preached what he preached, they should expect the same treatment  ( pious people would do everything in their power to suppress the truth and those who try to promote it, in every age, in every nation and in every medium):

JesusHandsome { according to John 16:1–4, Jesus said: }

"I have said these things to you to keep you from stumbling.  They will put you out of the synagogues (or "churches").  Indeed, an hour is coming when those who kill you will think that by doing so they are offering worship to God.  And they will do this because they have not known the Father or me.  But I have said these things to you so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you about them."

{ according to John 15:19–25, Jesus said: }

"If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own.  Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world – therefore the world hates you.  Remember the word that I said to you, 'Servants are not greater than their master.'  If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will keep yours also.  But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know him who sent me.  If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.  Whoever hates me hates my Father also.  If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not have sin.  But now they have seen and hated both me and my Father.  It was to fulfill the word that is written in their law, 'They hated me without a cause.'

{ according to John 3:19–21, Jesus said: }

"And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.  For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed.  But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God."

{ according to Matthew 10 :14 . . 41, Jesus said: }

"So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known.  What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops.  Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell."


  • "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light." – Plato
  • "Not to know is bad; not to wish to know is worse." – Nigerian Proverb
  • "Truth is arrived at by the painstaking process of eliminating the untrue." – Sherlock Holmes, (Arthur Conan Doyle)
  • "Once expanded to the dimensions of a larger idea, [the mind] never returns to its original size." – Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • "We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people. " – John F. Kennedy
  • "When the government fears the people, that is liberty. When the people fear the government, that is tyranny." – Thomas Jefferson –
  • "When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do" – William Blake
  • "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear." – George Orwell –
  • "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." – Jesus of Nazareth (John; Ch.8, v.32) ...
  • "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you angry." – Aldous Huxley –

Everybody knows how secretive the Roman Catholic Church is on all kinds of issues. This web page was designed to show how the "faithful" have learned to follow their church's example and to help protect their church by preventing anything critical of their church from appearing on web sites that they control or "moderate". (It must be noted that they make an exception when it comes to posts which they consider easy to refute, such as those made by people who are clumsy in their criticism or don't know what they are talking about.)
        The following are examples of Catholic sites where they turn the lights out whenever truth "shows its ugly head" (in their view):

  1. In 2009, a Catholic promoter named Glenn, who has posted several videos on YouTube under the name of "OneTrueChurch" wouldn't allow the posting of at least a dozen of my posts about many of the horrible things taught by "Fathers of the Church" (which showed how pointless it was for the author to claim these Fathers as reason to believe that Roman Catholicism is the one, true, church). He also disallowed my answers to other posters.( 2009)
  2. Another Catholic promoter called "UnusFides" published a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usV6d0aoErA&feature=related which purported to defend Pope Pius XII against the charge of being an accomplice (however unwilling) of Adolf of Hitler. He, too, removed my posts providing evidence that he was wrong.
  3. The moderator of a Vatican propaganda piece at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18IwjtARZSg&feature=related called "Pius XII and the Jews" does not allow any comments at all (as of 05/09).
  4. Another Vatican propaganda piece at http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-mainmenu-26/europe-mainmenu-35/1125 allowed only pro-Catholic posts, and removed mine. After I tried to post about the Catholicism of Nazi leadership in response to an article in defense of Pius XII, not only was the post not allowed but this message appeared on this site :"This content has been locked. You can no longer post any comment." (as of 06/13/09).
  5. To show how my comment was removed. from the following Catholic page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOlMCTqCr8k , I captured a screen shot of my comment before its removal:

    Rome-Reports.jpg

  6. The "Catholic Culture" site doesn't take any chances. To make sure that nothing unfavorable to their church is posted, only those who contribute money to their site are allowed to post there: http://www.catholicculture.org/commentary/otn.cfm?id=822

  7. Mark Shea is another very active Catholic promoter on the web, and won't let me publish anything on sites over which he has any control. Yet, he knows that when he came to my own Yahoo group we allowed him to argue his position there for weeks, if not months, before we blocked his access because he was squandering our time.
  8. The moderator of the Catholic site http://www.cathnews.com/article.aspx?aeid=14457 blocked my posts (as of 06/16/09).
  9. The moderator of the Catholic site http://cordei.com/?p=1545 removed my posts (as of 08/03/09).
  10. The moderator of the Catholic site http://www.dfwcatholic.org/was-pope-pius-xii-complicit-in-the-holocaust-questions-are-answered-in-documentary-on-catholictv6021/.html removed my posts (as of 08/13/09).
  11. The moderator of the Youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVBptfAxGOs&feature=fvsr attacks the Seventh Day Adventists for their role in the Holocaust but does not allow either posts or even ratings of its video (as of 08/17/09).
  12. The moderator of http://catholicknight.blogspot.com/ tells anyone thinking of posting there :"All comments will be moderated at the sole discretion of 'The Catholic Knight.' Mere submission of the comment form does not guarantee comment will be posted. Comments will be moderated based on appropriate language, topic, subject matter and relevance. Comments that libel Catholic Christianity or the Roman Catholic Church will not be posted." (as of08/18/09). He reproduced approvingly the Vatican's attack on the Roosevelt and Churchill administrations, but God forbid that anyone would question the Vatican's "calling the kettle black".
  13. The moderator of the Catholic site sunlituplands.org/2009/12/james-carroll-exploits-holocaust-lies.html
  14. The moderator of the Catholic site http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/site/comments/hitler-told-germans-to-kill-poles-mercilessly-and-without-compassion/ removed my posts (as of 08/29/10).
  15. The moderator of the Catholic site http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/popes-and-saints-take-on-suspicion-and-conspiracy/ removed my post, after I made this copy of it in place (as of 04/04/11).
  16. The moderator of the Catholic site http://forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=418725 made sure that the poster below who posted the obvious on a thread that was trying to "white-wash" the papal bull justifying slavery, "Dum Diversas", would never post there again:
  17. The moderator of the Catholic site http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/archbishop-pietro-sambi/ removed my posts (as of 07/29/11).
  18. The moderator of the Catholic http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/us-catholics-mourn-death-of-archbishop-sambi/#disqus_thread removed my posts (as of 07/29/11) and
  19. again at http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/the-el-salvadoran-who-helped-rescue-40000-jews-from-the-holocaust-73289/ (on 08/01/17).
  20. The moderator of the Catholic http://www.calcatholic.com site removed my posts (as of 02/10/12 *).
  21. The moderator of the Catholic http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ site didn't just remove a post of mine that it didn't like. It now announces when I log in that "The site has blocked you from posting new comments." (as of 04/4/12).
  22. I've given up trying to enlighten Roman Catholics on sites controlled by their most benighted "gate-keepers".

    *what I tried to post on an article comparing abortion to the holocaust at http://www.calcatholic.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?id=0cdc470f-0729-43fe-9b03-b3798fe92210 was : "If God is opposed to abortion, then why does he allow the "holocaust" of as many as one fourth or even one third of all pregnancies by "natural causes"?
            And as for Adolf Hitler, who was raised in the bosom of the very conservative Roman Catholic Church of his day, although he was all for the killing of Jews of every age, he opposed abortion and was "pro-life" when it came to the 98% of Germans who were "Aryans".


    Of course, I am not the only one the R.C. church fears. http://www.irishcentral.com/news/Father-Tony-Flannerys-silencing-by-Vatican-causes-new-damage-to-Catholic-Church-147023365.html (04/11/12)

Other conservative "Christians" are chicken as well :

I tried commenting as an informed Christian preacher at World News Daily and at FrontPage Magazine and found that the conservative "Christians" were as fearful of the light as were the Catholics I described above. It didn't take long for them to freeze me out, without warning or explanation. The half dozen screen shots below, from early Feb. of 2015, are what they found so offensive / terrifying :
