The basics in a nutshell
Pope Benedicts sudden, out-of-the-blue resignation has led to a number of speculations involving child abuse cover-ups and what not. One
"organization" that has been pushing such speculations and conspiracy is this group called the ITCCS.
Even here on ATS, the ITCCS are being quoted as if they were an authority.
Some things to know about the ITCCS?
- "They" call themselves the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State.
- According to their own website, they were established in June 2010
- Despite being an "international tribunal", the tribunal members page on their website features only ONE person.... Acting Secretary: Kevin D.
Annett, M.A., M.Div. (Canada)
So who is Kevin D.Annett? And why is he running this campaign against the retired Pope?
From his website
1. To bring to trial those persons and institutions responsible for the exploitation, torture and murder of children, past and present, and
2. To stop these and other criminal actions by church and state.]
The abuse, trafficking, torture and murder of children appears endemic to European culture, and continues to be actively practiced, and condoned
and protected, by church, state, judicial and police forces around the globe.
Two of the main practitioners of this genocide of the innocent – the Vatican and the Crown of England
Now, I agree that those who abuse children should be brought to justice.
Kevin D. Annets obsession with the Popes resignation and focus on only the Vatican and the crown of England,
raises a few red flags. Reason being, for an "international tribunal" they seem rather narrowly focused on the Vatican. I cant help but think he has
an agenda. Unfortunately, a lot of people have fallen for ITCCS's smear campaign against the Vatican and the resigned Pope.
This thread will serve only as a starting point.
I am not claiming to have all the answers... or know everything about the ITCCS and Kevin Annet. In fact, I have never heard of this guy until today.
It would be better if we, for the sake of being objective, stop getting over emotional and allow our biases / passions take reign of our judgement.
Lets dig a little deeper and find out what the ITCCS, Kevin Annets one man "tribunal" is all about... before jumping to conclusions. Let us not
blindly buy into whatever flashy campaign that appears on the web.
We all remember the organization called "Invisible Children" and their Kony 2012 campaign, don't we?
